About AntonG
Joined July 2014
My life has been a long journey. I grew up in a household of 5 children…Three sisters and one brother. We were raised by my mother. She never talked much. She just led by example. She worked almost every day as a registered nurse. When she came home all she did was eat and go to bed. The children kept the house up. We cleaned, cooked, did laundry and maintained the lawn. That is all I Knew since I did not really apply myself in high school. After graduation from high school, my mother only had one thing in mind for my future; that was the ARMY.

So that’s where I ended up. The Army was fun at first until I was sent to Operation Desert Storm. Then I realized I could actually get killed. Not to sound un-patriotic, but that’s how I thought as a teenager. The war was not what made me decide to leave the Army after 5 ½ years. It was the indentured servitude that made me decide to leave. While in the Army I did manage to go to college at nights and weekends and obtained an Associates Degree in Criminal Investigative Administrative Management.

When I finally left the Army things didn’t get much better. In my first year out of the Army I went from job to job. Fortunately, at the time (1994) the United States had a low unemployment rate and coming by jobs was very easy. Later I decided to go back to school. I earned a Bachelors Degree in Accounting with a Minor in Economics. After this accomplishment, I figured my life would dramatically improve. The problem was I never liked a job well enough to stay. I’m sorry; I think there is something inherently wrong with a job. Why should I have to ask my mother…I meant my supervisor, can I take a day off or go use the restroom. And the time that was most disturbing to me is when I had to ask my supervisor could I take my wife and kids to Disney World.

Fast forward to today. I am currently self-employed. I am a full time bulk candy vendor and Internet Marketer. Life couldn’t be better. Today I work harder than I have ever worked at any JOB, but it’s all play time for me, because I really like what I do. I hate going to bed at nights and can’t wait to wake up the next day.

If you don’t take anything from the above text, believe this quote by Jim Rohn to be true:

“Formal Education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”

I have nothing against a formal education, but a formal education only taught me to fall in line. Self education taught me to walk out front.

To your success

Money Goals
There is no set amount of money I would be happy or ecstatic earning. However, I would expect my earnings to increase every year. I am not set so much on earnings as I am on net worth. When my net worth reaches one million dollars, then I will be ecstatic:-) I am already working day and night to reach that ecstatic point.

Excellent Anton, I know you will achieve your goals. As you start seeing more progress and results, you will be able to spend more time on your business.

When I started out online, I had limited time because I was in school full time and I was able to achieve "full time" status within the online business world in a year. I totally understand that we all have "time" issues in life, but I absolutely know you can do the same and accomplish the same sort of success!

Take action on the training here, immerse yourself within the community, and ask for help when you need it. This is your sure path to your own personal goals and successes Anton! :)
