Headed out of town on vacation!

    Boy, I can't wait until Friday!  My wife and I are going to the "windy city" Chicago just to get away from Colorado for a few days.  Actually the main reason we are going is to see Pearl Jam, my favorite band of all time!  For me, there's nothing like sitting in a crowd of people singing along to all the songs they are going  to play this Sunday and Monday.  
We'll probably hit a Cubs game on Tuesday when they host the Nationals.  My wife's never been to Chicago so she's excited for the opportunity to see the historic Wrigley Field and all the other wonderful sites to see.  I'm sure we'll hit all the fine restaurants and pizza places only to come back a few pounds heavier.  
This also reminds me of the last time I went to Chicago.  It was spring break 1999 and six of us were driving from Iowa City to Chicago.  We were going to Cancun early the next day.  Our party consisted of Sean and Rory (twin brothers from Iowa City), my friends Steve, Brian, Brent and I.  We piled in the car and made the 3 1/2 hour trip to Chicago. We were going to stay at Sean and Rory's sister's boyfriends parents house. (Got that?)  Now Sean and Rory both met the parents before but had never been to there house.  
We arrive in Chicago around 1pm.  Sean then realizes that he doesn't have the directions or phone number to the house where we were going to stay.  Great, now what do we do?  After about 10 minutes of us getting all over Sean's case, he starts to remember some of the directions and details.
Seans says "I think the house is on Sherman St (I really don't recall the actual street) or something like that, I think 3553 Sherman St.   No one will be at the house when we get there, so we can go in and make ourselves comfortable.  The front door will be unlocked, there is a basketball hoop in the driveway,there will be a black lab in the backyard that is fenced in, and someone will be home around 5." This is all the information he recalls at the time.
 We all thought that should be enough information to get to the house.  So after a while we find Sherman St and then within minutes we find 3553 Sherman (remember, not really the address).  Sure enough, we find a basketball hoop in the driveway, and the door unlocked.  Wow, we actually made it without directions!  
So we make ourselves comfortable by watching TV, eating the food and drinks in the fridge, playing hoops and tossing the ball around in the backyard with the dog.  We have been at this house for about an hour to an hour and a half when Sean and Rory go up to the mantle where all the family pictures are displayed.  (remember sean and Rory have met these people before).  The two are looking at them and one says to the other "Do you know any of these people?"  The other says "No". 
        So they rush to the kitchen to pick up some old mail, and sure enough, we were in the WRONG house!!  Everybody drops everything and rushes out the front door.  This is all happening while I'm still in the backyard!!  So I come in the house and no one is there.  I see bags of chips, half eaten sandwiches, empty cans of soda.  I mean we accidently trashed this house!  After I got the news, we got in the car and went down a few blocks to find the right house.  Pretty wild story, huh.

Weeding out the tire kickers

     I am a little peeved about something.  There's a lot of people that get in to a home based business and then trash it when they have failed.  Then what happens?  They tell the whole world that it is a scam.  Well let me tell you that these people fall into the category of "the 97%ers."  They get into a home based business and think the money is going to fall in their lap and when it doesn't, they put their tail between their legs and pout.  They also end up spending more money than they make.   Yes, its true that 97% of people that start a home based business fail and only 3% succeed.  These 3%ers succeed because they have the mindset, know what it takes to make some serious money, and live the lifestyle they deserve.  97%ers don't envision the lifestyle they deserve.  They don't surround themselves with people that are already successful in their industry.   

    Here's what happens when a 97%er joins a home business.  They first see only the money, think their bank account will change overnight, don't have the right marketing system, and don't educate themselves on their product or service.  I know I will never work with a 97%er.  They're going to fail and then blame me.   

    My advice to anyone that's thinking of getting in to a home business is to first have that mindset.  Believe that you will have success.  Achieve this and you are on your way.  Then set a goal.  A leader of mine told me "any goal without a deadline is just a wish".  That's so true!   The you need to focus on the marketing system and not the selling part.  Isn't it easier to promote a product than to sell it?  I don't think anyone can argue that.  Who wants to be sold on something?  I know I don't.  

   So if you think you fall into the category of a 3%er, I'll show you what I do at the end of this article.  If you are reading this and your not in this category, move on and go back to your boring JOB that you hate and underpays.  I know I am not going to waste my time with a 97%er!!

   Remember home based businesses don't fail, people do!

Here's what I do to enjoy the lifestyle I deserve.

Why I have a great lifestyle.

      Everyone asks me what am I doing and how am I doing it.  All my neighbors and friends see me doing stuff at different hours of the day like walking my dog.  I am always playing golf, well maybe 2-3 times per week.  I am able to go out to eat whenever I want.  My wife Jennifer now gets to stay home and not have the stresses of a desk job.  Basically I am living the lifestyle I want everyday!  Everyone else is at their job feeling unhappy and wishing they could have the same life as me.  These are the people that allow their boss to tell them how much their worth.  They go to work trading their time for money.   I will often ask someone:  "Are you worth what you are getting paid?"  Almost every time the answer is No.  Isn't this absurd?   Shouldn't you do something that allows you to get paid for what you are worth?  Do you know it is more risky now to have a job than it is to have and online home business?  Don't you want to have a lifestyle that allows you to do whatever you want whenever you want?  By having your own online business, YOU will have the freedom, YOU will be in charge, and YOU will write your own financial ticket.  This is what I wanted and I went out an found probably the best top online business opportunity out there.  This opportunity has changed my life forever.  I now have the time and freedom that I deserve.  So if you are sick and tired of sitting in your cubicle staring at the clock waiting for it to say it's "quitting time", check out what my wife Jennifer and I do to have the luxury lifestyle that we live everyday.
