So awesome Scott, I know from experience that goals are what lead us to success. Work relentlessly in pursuit of these goals and they CAN and WILL happen.

In fact, wipe failure out of your mind right now. It simply won't happen. You have too much help, support and an entire community of help behind you to ever let that happen :)

If you need anything going forward, just let me known and I will be happy to give you a hand.

Thank you in advance for everything that you do for the benefit of all.

Just to share a little background on me, at the age of 17, I was in a car accident and thrown out of a car, whereby two of my best friends that I grew up with, died. One year later, I was the passenger of a motorcycle accident, where I had multiple injuries, every major bone broken, some more than once, collapsed lungs and the lower portion of my left leg from the knee down, was just hanging on by a piece of skin, but the knee itself was mostly gone.

I remember all of it well, from the time that we hit the oncoming truck and flying through the air, to the point that the ambulance finally showed up. Even though I watched the first ambulance drive away, the 2nd one that came shortly after, picked me up on a board, put my leg beside me and took me to the nearest medical facility. My friend that was driving the motorcycle died. It was our Senior graduation trip. We had not been drinking or doping but we were on our way to the party in Florida. The party was over before it got started.

Just before the accident I had made a decision to go Marines for life and signed up for six years, the Sargent or whoever visited me in the hospital, said with a smile, young-man we're looking for a few good men, but when he saw what was under my covers, instead he said, that doesn't look too good. Career over before it started.

I went back to school for graphic engineering and computer design. Graduated at the top of my class with a 4 point average. Went to work with a multi-level financial marketing company called Primerica that orig started as ALWilliams.. The concept of MLM, and how it works, fascinated me and still does today. My up-line blew through my warm market making sales, but did not help me recruit anyone at all. So I had no team. Because I had no more warm market and because I had no support in a company, I myself, had to learn how to work a cold market, or from a phone book.

One book that was recommended in sales meetings over and over was How to Master the Art of Selling. I bought the book and the audio tapes. By the time I got good at what I was learning, my wife was almost wanting to leave me. I had found an opening with a company offering a six figure income opportunity, working with an attorney. No more MLM, all corporate.

I ended up in Plano Texas with my family. We attended a church called Prestonwood, it was so big that people called it Preston-world. I had Zig Zigler as a Sunday school teacher there; Awesome is the only description. Anyway, my job was eventually to teach agents and offices how to properly represent the attorney, the company and how to review trusts and help people with their financials. I became a National Director overseeing 9 offices in 5 states.

Went to a car dealership with my 7 and 10 year old boys just to look, while my wife was getting her nails done. I slipped in the showroom effectively re-breaking my left leg at the artificial joint and above. Due to surgeons cutting through scar tissue, I literally almost bleed to death on the operating table. It was awful, and I felt like I was on my death bed afterward while in recovery, yet the company and my people were constantly calling asking for my help, thoughts etc, making it impossible for me to relax. Long story short, I resigned from the company. I also ignorantly stopped my 6 figure income.

Ended up in Baton Rouge Louisiana, living at my father-in-law's, who never really got along with me or his stepdaughter, so it seemed. Honest high paying work wasn't easy to find. My college degree was worthless because the industry had changed so much.

I finally found work at, and soon managed a privately owned storage facility for about a year, making peanuts. In the time I was there, I actually doubled the income, of the facility, and the owners knew it. They went on more vacations and bought more things, for themselves. No raises for me and the pats on the back didn't spend.

I started thinking about the sales materials and things that I used over time that had made me successfulI, so I went to Tom Hopkins International Seminars corp office. He's the guy that wrote the #1 best seller, "How To Master the Art of Selling". I devoured the info. like a sponge. It's what I had been taught in MLM, it's what I applied and showed others in financials and insurance, I doubled sales income at a large storage facility and now I had the opportunity to become a National Sales Trainer. Working eventually lead to the position, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for the East Coast company "Changes in Attitudes" that was authorized to promote Tom Hopkins Seminars.

Me and my family lived in Orlando FL. We were also working with the big nationwide Get Motivated Events, with Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Zig Zigler, Tom Hopkins to name a few of our event speakers/trainers. I got to the point in speaking with sales groups at businesses, that people enjoyed me and asked if I would be speaking at the big events. I even remember hearing the groans from a particularly large group of sales people, when I said no, lol.

I was eventually persuaded/encouraged to have a seminar on successful sales techniques. I sold tickets from $99 - $199 per, promoting myself, and had almost 200 butts in seats at a hotel event just to see a 6 hour how-to sales seminar presented by me. To have a nice venue requires help of a few people coordinating meetings with companies, accounting, etc.

Anyway, as everyone worked, I realized that if anything happened to one key player it would affect me financially as well. I didn't want to rely on just a few people's work to determine my income so I started looking financials again. I called a friend who referred me to a trust company that was owned by the brother of the first trust company owner that I had worked for. When they heard my name I was in like Flynn (whoever Flynn is lol).

Worked my way as a 6 figure earner consistently every year (although one year was $97k), was one of the top 10 producers monthly for my career and then the company sent me to Michigan.

I'm in Michigan alone now, my wife quit me back in Florida (I think mainly because I was a workaholic). I started building the office in Lansing MI. My 21 year old son came up to be trained and work with me and to help build a team of agents for the office while maintaining appointments with existing clients.

One afternoon I left the office and went by the loft to pick up my son so he could observe an appointment with me and a client. I noticed that his hair was shaggy so I pulled into a parking lot where I saw a barbershop. As we slowly pulled into the parking space, I looked to my left and saw someone moving my way speeding in reverse. It T-bones the little Infiniti G-37 I was driving. The door on the driver side came into the car and pinned me in the seat. The side airbag went off, hit me in the head and I couldn't feel my left arm or hand.

The ambulance took me out of the car after the fire department cut it open. My son was okay, the car was totaled and I myself was rushed to the hospital. The feeling came back in most of my arm, now I just can't feel part of my left hand fingers. I have some back damage, a torn rotator cuff and my memory still has a major malfunction right now.

I contacted my superior and let him know what was happening and that I was unable to work. He didn't understand that it wasn't just a little fender bender or he didn't want to believe it. I was on pretty strong medications, I wasn't supposed to drive (and still can't) because of medications being taken. Just before the surgery scheduled for my rotator cuff repair, my medication caused constipation. My son had to take me to the emergency room where they gave me an enema.

The nurse that gave the enema was very rough and unknowingly perforated my stomach. After going home, stomach pains started to increase. Someone recommended a hot bath. An ambulance had to come pick me up out of my bathtub because I was experiencing excruciating pain and could not move. At the emergency room X-ray they discovered the perforation. I had to have an emergency surgery.

When I woke up after surgery I had a colostomy on my side. The surgeon told me that I almost died and that he had saved my life. (I've been in multiple life-threatening situations but have never had a Dr. point-blank tell me that I almost died and that he saved my life).

Fortunately for me, (or so I thought) while I was in the hospital and during recovery, that I had a long term disability policy through my company with Prudential. After 90 days of disability, I qualified for maximum monthly income. $5,000 a month was less than what I was accustomed to, but at least I could pay bills and live.

They started paying me every month. While I was in the hospital having the reversal of the colostomy, my Prudential caseworker couldn't get in touch with me. So after a call and an email they terminated my benefits. I didn't find out until I got out of the hospital in October and my check never showed up when everything was due to be paid. I called to let them know my check didn't show, and after hearing what was said, I explained that I was in hospital and I wasn't available. I got upset to say the least. I went through October, November, December and currently January with no income.

Doctors, specialists and attorneys say I need to be here in Michigan. I've exhausted all savings, family has done all they can and Prudential has it in appeal looking it over and continually requesting information from doctors. I've worked 100% commission all my life, except during my storage facility experience.

In the midst of trying to recover, even though I was a loyal top producer for my company, my superior terminated my employment due to my lack of communication with him. I still have no income, but we should have an answer for the Prudential appeal in about two weeks. My employee health-insurance went COBRA to almost $600 a month. My cell phone bill for me and my family is/was approximately $230 per month.

You might be able to imagine that I've been in a mental place for some time now, looking to create income. I can no longer take care of people's life savings accounts, nest eggs, or help others in my previous businesses anymore because of how my memory sometimes doesn't work.

Because I'm not supposed to work during this time, I used what money I had and consulted my son on building a direct mail advertising company. When I came across a network marketing cellphone company named Tempo that marketed with a referral program where everyone can get free phone service for for life simply by referring three customers and then you can get paid to show others how to do the same (Call and listen to this 2 min recorded message (559) 546-1046) ; it almost took my breath away. I spent pretty much the last of my money to start with them. I'm in the process of whittling that AT&T bill down, my personal service is now free because I already have three Regional manager customers. In fact I had them within my first 30 days. I actually have more than that, with so much more to build and so much work to do. But free cellphone service for life alone is very substantial.

I've just had a rotater cuff repair surgery on Feb 10th and hopefully recovery will soon get better. I stopped counting at #29 and just tell people that I've have 29 surgeries

The systems I've found and can put together over time enables me to continue working without devastating someone else financially in case I forget. And I can do the work at the pace and whatever time I want or am able. I just have to get more efficient with all aspects, which will also increase my effectiveness in directing others with their next steps as well, in putting together their successful businesses.

I see this as my new career now. I know it will take some time to build income and that it's obviously not a get rich quick thing. What it is though, will continue to grow. Most people need additional income and everything is becoming computerized along with business. Almost everyone is a prospect!!!

You've given me hope again, to know that I can build a company, through this, that once it's built, it will continue to pay me, my family and my loved ones even if I can't work, I'll continue to have an income for as long as I have customers and affiliates succeeding. So when I say thank you for all that you do for the benefit of all, brother I mean it from the deepest depth of my heart.

During my recovery now, my son has gone back down south, and my girlfriend here has almost left me, so this business is all that I do. Any and every bit of support here and there is greatly appreciated. I'm currently scouring the Internet for ways of free promoting and posting boards also. This experience is also reminding me of, and teaching me more to do also. My son built a company website and I'm authorized to, and would like to create a similar site with Adsense and this program included. Again, Thank you for all of your help. I want to build a basic site before I go premium just to see how much a freebie sign up can do; so the faster it's built the faster I'm going to upgrade
