I want to let everyone know how one event completely changed my life.

I spent most of my adult life as a restaurant manager, running multi-million dollar restaurants I was very successful in turning around minimal producing restaurants and making them profitable. By building teams setting up routines developing employees.

All of which were very fulfilling but I had no time for myself , for my family and no quality-of-life I work from open to close a lot of days, rarely seeing my family and missing out on important milestones. I had a heart attack neglected my health and every waking hour and minute was devoted to pushing sales and operations of the restaurant. I was totally unhappy but it was all I knew.

Then one fateful night September 29, 2011 during a blackout I made the mistake of walking through the wrong door, and fell down my basement stairs. I laid there for hours alone in the dark until my daughter came over and found me at the bottom of the stairs. I couldn’t move a muscle except for my pinky finger felt like I was swimming in the pool with no water, it was the scariest moments my entire life. The weirdest feeling was spent in the emergency room watching doctors move my arms and legs and not be able to feel them.

I spent the next six months in rehab slowly getting some feeling back but I still was not able to walk or use my arms and hands. Now I was faced with the dilemma of not being able to work anymore and run my restaurants what was I going to do for money how was I going to support my family. Family the one that I had neglected all this time was falling apart, I lost my wife grew distant from my children and found myself alone.I always dabbled a bit with the Internet mainly for Facebook video games but always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I had done some get rich quick schemes in the past but always failed at it. But realizing that I could never go back to the restaurant I knew that I had to find a different way of making income that’s what I learned network marketing.

I pulled out my laptop dusted it off and started searching Internet for ways to make money. I ventured out in a few different ventures spent a lot of my Social Security money, trying to find that one thing that was going to give me a break through. Then I found a mentor that guided me through the world of Internet marketing. Taught me a system of how to generate leads and convert them in the sales.

Now with the help of my mentor I have developed a system of wellness and health, strong mental mindset  and business savvy. I found systems that afford me the ability to make as much and even more at times than I had as a restaurant manager. I am less stressed happier than I’ve ever been in my entire life. All through the system of network marketing and the vehicle that I’ve chosen for me a better lifestyle.

A lifestyle of dinning whenever I want to in other people’s restaurants, traveling whenever I like, ability to help my children with whatever needs they have. No longer am I working 16 hour days more like six hour days on something I truly enjoy.

Part of what turned a corner for me was having a strong mental mindset, which I developed and retooled through audio and motivational tools. They brought me out of depression and change my outlook on life. It has put me in a mental state of entrepreneurship and really changed my life. These are the tools that you are given in the system which also gives you an awesome residual monthly income to boot.
