What do you say about a guy who seemingly has been chasing the American dream all his life? Ray Higdon calls himself a born entrepreneur and looking at his history I don't see any reason to argue the point.
If you, at twelve years old, are stopping by the store on the way to school so you can buy "Airhead" candies, then re-sell them to your classmates at a profit, what's to argue? It seems also that a lot of success-minded people, on their way to that success, take a detour through the grocery business.
I knew a lot of people in that business and the majority of them were that way.
Here's the difference though.
Being in a position and seeing that, if done right, you can make a pretty good career of it will be satisfying to most people.
But for a select few all they see is being "stuck".
The money might be pretty good but...
Well how about a good paying government job? Not just any "gubmint" job but one that pays close to 100K a year, has incomparable medical benefits and you can retire at what, 50 or 55? Retire with virtually the same salary as you were making when you were working! Nah, he says.
I'm still limited.
I'm still only making what they are willing to pay me.
I've got to do for myself.
I've got to find a way where my money is only limited by me.
County government, insurance company...
it's all the same if you don't control your own destiny.
Ray got himself into the real estate business where he became a landlord of numerous properties but, as you can imagine, being a landlord can take it's toll.
Forget about that he told himself.
I'll limit my involvement in the real estate transaction.
That, if you don't know, means "flipping" properties.
Getting control of a property, finding a buyer for it and selling it at a profit.
Not bad as long as the economy is backing you up.
One thing you cannot keep from doing in any line of business is learning.
Ray Higdon learned that he could not only market real estate online but that he could teach others to do it.
Oh yes! Got it made now.
Traveling the country speaking to people and teaching them how to play the real estate game.
No more clogged toilets and broken garbage disposals.
"Pretty easy and lucrative going from city to city imparting my knowledge for a fee.
" Still, something's not right.
Relatively easy work.
Why am I not feeling it? What's missing? Ascent To Freedom in Network Marketing My kids! That's what's missing.
"I'm controlling the financial part of my life but I don't have any freedom".
Ray had a friend, whom he is probably forever indebted to, who introduced him to network marketing.
Now don't get me wrong.
Even with mlm there's a building process which, in the beginning, takes time to get it to the point of freedom.
That's what most people are looking for.
To be able to do whatever they want to do whenever they want to do it.
Money is great.
But if you don't have the freedom and the time to enjoy it, to spend time with the people who matter in your life, what good is it? Ray Higdon has finally found what he's been looking for.
He also knows he's not the only one who's looking for a lifestyle of freedom.
Now he enjoys teaching other people hot to get there too.
If you're in the same or similar boat as Ray was he can show you and, more importantly, help you to get to where you want to be.
