I just wanted to earn an extra $500 a month. I couldn't grow any further in my career, yet I was always working. I "looked" successful, but I couldn't save a penny. I was never present, always working.
The thing is, my boss at work did not like the idea that I was doing network marketing on the side. Typical...right?
I remember his exact words..."Are you 'all in' or not?"

I really learned how to make my business successful. I wasn't just making a few bucks here and there, I wasn't just getting a taste, I was really all in.
Suddenly, I had a business capable of supporting my family. I was able to see a future where I would not be worried about money, where I had a lot more time and I could be present daily for my family...
That’s when I realized that I could make more by helping the people who really wanted to be helped.
Compared to other network marketers, I was...
