Full-Time Father Just Wanted Freedom
Well, my story began a couple of years back when I was still working as an engineer. Although it pays well, my job demanded a commitment to travel 80% of the time. It hurts the most when my wife had to suffer the pain of loosing our first child all by herself when I was posted to work in the States.
Just a few months later, my brother tried to show me the way out with Network Marketing. I had no idea what it was back then but the only word that flashed through my mind is SELLING! I knew it was not for me because I am an introvert, I don’t like socializing, I don’t speak well and I don’t have many friends. Reluctantly, I joined as my brother insisted I trust him this one.
One thing lead to another when I was ‘convinced’ to attend a leadership camp few months after I joined and that’s where this word “Freedom” began to creep into my mind.
I met many people from different countries, they don’t just talk about success. They are a living proof of it. Their success didn’t comprise of just money but freedom of choice and freedom of time.
Wow! That was totally new to me, but is it really possible?
Thank God I decided to give myself a chance, I told myself “What do I have to loose?”
And my journey in Network Marketing begins…
Thanks to my supportive wife and of course I believe The Lord is watching over me. He has granted me a few good friends to walk through this beautiful and interesting journey together. When I am down they will always be there to encourage me, when I have joy, we share happiness together.
It is indeed a very fulfilling journey. Today, I enjoy the time I have with my family and the true friendship I met here. It all began with “What do I have to loose? You won't know till you've tried...”
