I am "JUST ME" Part One
Well I guess the time has come for me to say a little about myself and, in the spirit of MLM Gateway, also see who reads this and wants to connect.
I have always prided myself on my Integrity. I believe, particularly after living here in beautiful Bali for so long, that what you put in - you get back, and what you simply take - will be taken from you. I consider myself to be a people person, that is, someone who 'knows' people and has studied human behavior and psychology over the years and still finds a lot to like about our 'destructive' species. I love to meet new people and make new connections.
My working career started straight out of school. I had a place reserved at art college (and I have always been a creative person - see some of my videos or websites, I do all of my own) but at age 16 I spotted a set of DJ double decks (Remember Vinyl Records?) in a shop window one day and it changed my life. I love the quote "It's not the things you do in life that you regret. It's the things you didn't do that you will regret". Well I walked straight in that shop and asked them to hold the decks for 24 hours, then went home and talked my father into being a guarantor for me to buy them on credit. I then went and got a job at the local Boots the Chemist (at GBP16.50 a week salary) in order to pay for them - College was gone in an instant but it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My first gig was the Boots Christmas Party armed with the decks, 2 small 50w speakers, a few flashing lights (home made) and 50 single records. From that gig I got 2 bookings; From there more and more until I became quite famous on the DJ circuit in the UK working at many clubs and mixing with celebrities at awards dinners and the like. I spent almost 8 years as a DJ and during that time I did an Open University Correspondence Marketing course and kept my low paying job with Boots (For 'security' to keep my parents happy) despite earning a small fortune as a DJ.
What I learned from that period was that being impulsive and taking action was a part of my make up and it has served me well during my life. We live in a world now where suspicion and distrust are a part of daily life and this flows like a river into the world of Network Marketing. Most people want others to believe them but are always 'cautious' to believe others. Many are "Procrastinators" and are the first to slam a program even though they watched their friends do well from it.
My philosophy has always been simple: I trust most people once and if they let me down then I move on. I make my own mistakes and I have my successes. Luckily the latter outnumber the former but to be successful you MUST step up and risk making the mistake. My parents thought I was crazy for throwing away a university education on a whim but I worked hard at my chosen alternative and it paid off big time.
My advice to anyone who has read this far without falling asleep:
The next time you look at a program say to yourself "How much will I make from this?" NOT "How much will this cost me?" If you can work at having an "I BELIEVE IN MYSELF" mindset then you can accomplish anything.
Thanks for reading guys and I will bore you with chapter 2 soon :-)
