Success, followed by a heart-breaking 6-months, but Gonzo brings back some joy!

Last Update: September 10, 2015

Hi all,

First, a little about the taste of success:

It has been a little while since I have posted. I have been INSANELY busy in a great way running my business, growing and learning more every day. I never stop learning and neither should you. There is always more you can know, more you can do, and more you can achieve and I have experienced that first hand, thanks to WA!

I couldn't have dreamed of the success I've hit already, but goals are set for even bigger and better for things moving forward. I will share my story in much further detail in the near future, as I hope to motivate anyone having any doubts along the way. You CAN do this and if you really want it, as cliche as that sounds, the blueprint is there! Just follow it and you WILL succeed! You WILL have your own business and you WILL achieve your goals. If I can do it, ANYONE can! I am NOT special in the least.

The short version of the story is I lost my job unexpectedly in June of 2014, I found WA and followed the blueprint, gave it everything I had and did not get distracted by shiny objects or worry about step 10 before I even started step two. I took ACTION and didn't just sit around talking about it or with everyone about what I wanted to do. I let the doubters doubt while I went ahead and did. I was done with complacency nonsense.

Well, long story short, within my first three months, I was earning nearly triple the salary of the job that let me go and decided to turn down three job offers that came soon after to pursue this full time.

It was truly the best decision I ever made and although I work harder than any corporate job, I am also happier than ever and ALWAYS know the sky is the limit and I am not capped at my potential. I did not earn my money promoting WA and while, I have and would and will with future sites in a heartbeat, you should also know that you can do this in virtually any niche market! You can start there and then go into the "make money online" niche if you are more comfortable or want to at all. You can start there, too. My point is that it doesn't matter and one way is no more "right" than the other.

Now:

For those who may or may not know, a little over 6 months ago, I lost my best friend in the world. Yes, the Boston Terrier, Vinny, who you see in my profile picture passed and I have been devastated to say the least. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him.

He is not and will NEVER be replaceable by any stretch of the imagination. He and I traveled to over 10 different places over the span of his life and most of those places, he was also my only friend. he was truly my best friend and I still love and miss him every day.

However, I am also a huge animal lover and dog lover and when I came across an opportunity to rescue this adorable and awesome lab/collie mix, which is now named Gonzo. He was formerly named, Lucifer (I kid you not) and then Luciano, lol, I couldn't resist and had to give this three-month-old pup a home. I adopted him and he is quickly becoming an awesome part of my life and a member of the family.

Without further adieu, please meet Gonzo! That is all....

Sorry for being so absent here. I have been so busy and will absolutely come back and have a ton of things to share with members of the community that I really think will be helpful and want to do my part in paying it forward. As things slow down a little, I will be back more often and hope to help even one person in any way to achieve their dreams and goals.

All the best and much success to everyone!

Sincerely,

Howie and Gonzo

I can't thank all of you enough for the kind words and understanding and I promise to make more time to get to WA and try to provide more training and/or advice that I think may help others. This is an amazing place where amazing things can be accomplished. If I can do it, anyone can. I have just been so insanely busy trying to take things to even the next level it has ben tough to still get back around here. Hence, my super high rankings now. I shall return and pay it forward as beset as possible though. All the best and much success to you all, though!

So sorry to hear of your loss of Vinny...it's a hard time to go through for sure, but they'll always be a part of your memories.

We lost our husky mix, Pepper, over a year and a half ago to cancer, and I still miss her. But, since my hubby and I are animal/dog lovers we still have the four remaining furry kids...very true they can never be replaced, but giving a home to a new friend does help ease the sorrow.
Good to hear about Gonzo...he's a little cutie! Much better name for him too.

Happy to hear of your success too...it's definitely given me a much needed kick to get going!

Best wishes :) -Sherry

Bless, Gonzo looks a character and I'm sure he'll too become a great companion for you, but in a different way to Vinny. All my dogs have bought something different into my life, yet I still miss the wee terrier I grew up with.

Great news that business is going so well for you, being busy doing something you like is good!

I had not heard about Vinny. I know how heartbreaking it is to lose a best friend and of course, Vinny is not replaceable. But I'm so glad you were willing to rescue another dog. Gonzo is adorable.

Thanks for the inspiring success story, too!

Sorry to hear about Vinny, but I glad to hear about Gonzo. We just lost two of our family members 2 months ago, and have now added a new member. You can never replace the ones you lost, but the new members help fill the empty void.
Thanks for the success story, it is just what I needed today to get myself out of a rut.
