As I write this post this morning, I realize that Im back to being a normal person. What do I mean by that?? Well, over the past few weeks I have been doing alot of traveling. 1st, we had the “Live The Dream” event in Las Vegas last week which was absolutely phenomenol. Then this past weekend I was in the Bahamas at the luxurious Atlantis resort with some top leaders and the owners of Numis Network. I must admit, all this traveling has me a little back logged on my blog, so now it’s time to catch up;) All this week I will be posting new content from the past few weeks so make sure you are coming back daily to get all my new stuff;) Now, off to today’s post.
What does a 17 year old know about Network Marketing? While I was in the Bahamas I had the pleasure of bringing my family and got to spend some quality time with them. As I watched my son enjoy himself, I started to truly realize how blessed I am to be in this industry. My son has been around Network Marketing pretty much all of his life and only knows the life of a direct salesperson and network marketer. When I was growing up, I saw my dad go to work everyday as a butcher and came home on his part-time and sold cb equipment. I learned alot from my dad as he was selling cb equipment, which ultimately got me to love the word “sell.” Now, Im able to put the same imprint on my son, however it’s a little different. My son wakes up every morning to get ready for school and sometimes Im still in the bed;) He comes home and realizes that his parents are home and Im in the lab working on the next project or recruiting someone in my business. What does this mean to you? Understand that your children are very impressionable, and ultimately are watching everything that you are doing. My son has gotten it instilled in his brain at a young age that in order to take over your life, you have to be a entrepreneur. He truly knows that I don’t like the word “job” and that network marketing and direct sales is a way of life in our household. Because of this, he has been able to travel the world, spend quality time with his parents, and grow up in an enviroment of wealth creation.
Are you teaching the same thing to your children? If you bust your but everyday for someone else’s dream called a job, they see that. If you bust your but for your own dream, they see that too. The question of the day today is simple… What are your kids seeing daily?? Understand, as kids they are very impressionable and will ultimately in most cases follow in the footsteps that they were shown. I don’t want my son to have to work the 40/40 plan and bust his ass all his life for someone else. I want him to bust his ass for himself and be able to witness what life is truly all about. Check out this video from my son while we were in the Bahamas as he tells you what Network Marketing means to a 17 year old!! Happy Watching!
