Hello Struggling Network Marketer,
You have the opportunity to do the extraordinary no matter what the circumstances. I believe in inspiring and empowering others to get more out of life.
I’m not a guru. I’m just a normal, driven guy that believes in working for yourself, leverage and having fun while doing it.
You can learn a couple marketing strategies and through repetition, you will be amazed at what can happen.
I’ve always believed that there had to be better way than working the traditional 9–5. My mind was blown when I saw the concept of residual income through the network marketing business model!
Because of this desire, boy did working a 9–5 job frustrate me. I was frustrated working for someone else because I now know there is a better way.
If you have a plan, a mentor, and are consistent you can accomplish anything.
Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
If you can commit to working for one or two extra hours everyday (6-8pm), Monday through Friday, you can make a huge difference in your life.
You can learn how to do anything in those couple extra hours everyday.
You can learn a few skills that will make a drastic difference in your emotional and financial life when compounded after only 24 months.
I want to meet, network, and give back to other newbie network marketers who are in the same situation just like I was … and hopefully my story can help inspire you to discover a better alternative just like I did when I decided to look for other ways to make money from home.
I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and moved to Southern California in 1991. I am currently living in the Long Beach community of Belmont Shore with my beautiful wife, steps from the beach and I love it!
But life was not always peachy.
Discovering the home business world
I was first introduced to owning my own home based business in 1997. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was twenty-one years old and I was excited about working for myself, being my own boss, and having more freedom.
Boy was I mistaken.
Like most, I failed miserably.
I did it all WRONG. I was chasing my friends and family, going to every Thursday night opportunity meeting, every Saturday morning training, talking to complete strangers to see if they would be interested in my business and asking for referrals from my sister and her boyfriend and his friends and their friends.
Regardless of all the pitfalls and struggle, I was learning new things, meeting exciting and other positive like-minded people and began my entrepreneurial journey. I was on cloud nine!
Fast forward about six months or so — my business was not where I thought it was suppose to be and what did I do? Like most people — I quit. I said this does not work and decided to go back to college.
I remember reading somewhere that computer programmers made 50K per year and thought that was a decent salary. I thought I would program, listen to tunes on my mp3 player, and make a decent living.
Going to College
I enrolled in a trade school to become a computer programmer. I went to school from 8 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon and then work from 3 to 11PM at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel. I would get home, do some homework, get a few hours of sleep and then do it again.
Work, school, sleep.
Rinse and repeat.
The hustle that is life.
The computer programming school closed down so I decided to study graphic design and received an associate’s degree in 2003 at Brooks College in Long Beach and eventually began my career in graphic design — running hard in that familiar rat race.
Starts graphic design career
I didn’t go to the best school out there but I do have that one thing that matters. Hustle. I persevered and went to work.
While working the graphic design job, I decided to start my own t-shirt brand called “Greenville”. I figured I use the skills I learned at art school and start my own business.
I started this business in a tiny 300 square foot studio apartment in Downtown Long Beach.
Here’s a picture of boxes of tees in my living room / bedroom / warehouse…
The t-shirt industry was fierce. The business did not take off as planned but nonetheless it was good times! I had officially started my first business and I learned a lot.
After 6 years of having my boss tell me when I could take a vacation, when I could have a raise (and how much), when to come to work and when to leave, I started to think “there has to be a better way“.
I had not taken a vacation in about three years and it was starting to catch up to me.
Sick and tired of being sick and tired
I dreaded driving to work, driving down that congested 405 freeway, thinking about how hard I’m working, giving it my all and not being paid what I knew what I was worth.
I was miserable. I often dreamed of being my own boss, getting paid what I was worth, taking more vacations… actually just taking a vacation really.
The more and more I thought about it the more I refused to work at a job so that when I retired, my boss would have a nice big house to live in.
I decided this was not for me.
Something HAS to change
I had read Rich Dad Poor Dad and The Cash Flow Quadrant and whenever I would just think about these books my heart would start racing and I’d get excited about building my own enterprise.
I wanted to spend more time with my wife, travel the world, get paid what I am worth, work when I wanted to work and really have that freedom in life that we all dream about.
- I was sick and tired of punching a clock
- I was sick and tired of rushing through my lunch
- I was sick and tired of not being able to take vacations
- I was sick and tired of the commute
The richest people in the world look for and build networks. Everyone else just looks for work. –Robert Kiyosaki
I do not want to have to ask for time off to take my future kids to the dentist or to the doctor for a checkup.
I began looking online for ways to make money. I was looking and looking and looking for a business I could do from home.
Not being able to live life on MY terms was painful.
I was FRUSTRATED.
Discovering how to make money online
Through my day job, I learned about drop-shipping and I created an e-commerce website. I market a product, take the orders, someone else manufactures the product and handles the shipping.
This is gold.
A stream of income and one step closer to kissing the 9-5 goodbye.
Read chapter 9 in the book “The 4-Hour Workweek” about Income Automation. Amazing book. Kind of in the same line as network marketing where you do something once and get paid over and over for it.
About 6 months after creating this e-commerce website I came across a great network marketing business and I knew to have real leverage is to build a network marketing business. A passive income that can pay you over and over for working one time.
Funny thing is — my BOSS introduced me to the business. Ha!
Internet Network Marketing
Ever notice how certain things lead us to other things? I believe for a reason. The job didn’t provide me the lifestyle that I wanted but it did lead me to my business and for that I’m grateful.
With the Internet, you can instantly place your product, your service, or your business in front of thousands, or even millions, of people, around the world.
The Internet is the most powerful platform for information in the world.
We teach mlm lead generation, how to position yourself online, prospecting, recruiting, sponsoring, and more. We can show you how too.
When it comes down to it the industry is and always will be about relationships. There are naysayers that say the Internet doesn’t work. That is true.
If you don’t put in the effort you will not get results.
If you do put in the effort, over a consistent period of time, just like in Network Marketing, you will see results.
The Internet is the tool that provides incredible leverage for your business.
That’s a screen shot of the results that I’m getting inside of My Lead System Pro.
In my best week I sponsored 6 people in 7 days and I consistently generate leads every day.
I don’t show these results to impress you but to impress upon you what you can do when you learn a few simple skills and consistently apply yourself.
I enjoy working with team players, action-takers and people who are ready to make their dreams come true.
Personal info about me
I’m 36 years young and I’m happily married to the most beautiful woman in the world that supports me in all of my business endeavors.
She’s the love of my life and encourages me in everything that I do and I am grateful to have her by my side
Like everyone who starts their journey of getting out of the rat-race, I’m working part-time on my business (Jim Rohn).
Making a change in your life all starts with taking that first step.
Will you take the first step or let another week, month and year pass by?
So that is why I created this blog. I know my experiences are valuable. They can help others and I look forward to networking with like-minded people.
My mission today is to invest in as many people’s success as I possibly can. I’ve studied and I’ve learned a lot and look forward to sharing this information with those who are open to receiving it.
I am very much looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you.
This is YOUR life.
Are you who you want to be?
There are far too many opportunities out there for any of us to not design the life of our dreams and help as many people as we can along the way.
This industry is real. I’m having a blast building my business.
Empower Network is THE Business
Choosing the right home based business is important. There are many great home business opportunities. Some have been around for decades and some are start-ups.
With more than a million searches per month of people looking for ways to supplement their income, this industry has entered its “Golden Age”.
A lot of people are looking for ways to make additional money through Network Marketing, Internet Marketing and Home Based Businesses. Choosing the right business is critical.
We have personally reviewed more than 75 home based businesses. There are multiple factors in choosing the right business: products, leadership, demand, and the compensation plan are just a few.
In MOST normal MLM companies it takes a team of about 2,000 active distributors on autoship to make $5,000 per month residual income.
If you are complete ROCKSTAR and personally sponsor 100 people per year… you are still looking at a good 3-5 years to build a team of 2,000.
6 Months … Or 3-5 Years
With Empower Network, you’re only required to sign up 52 people at the INNER CIRCLE level (you pass up 20%) to earn $5,000 per month:
- 40 net sign ups @ $25 = $1,000 monthly
- 40 net sign ups @ $100 = $4,000 monthly
So 52 people in say six months… or 2,000 in 3-5 years?

Who I’d like to meet: I am interested in meeting positive, like-minded people that consider themselves to be entrepreneurs, go-getters, and super achievers – that are actively pursuing their goals.
I specifically look to partner with people that have vision and take action.
People with strong morals of honesty and integrity and people that are willing to do what it takes to get to the top.
