The Defining Moment
Now, I’m not going to tell you that I can predict the future, but guess what happened in just a few short months of making this realization? 90% of the employees working for the company had to take a pay cut. That’s right, we had the choice to do the same amount of work for less pay or be laid off indefinitely.
"This was when I knew my path in life had changed forever."
The next few months were tough, but I made an important decision during this time. I was going to create a future for myself that could not be destroyed overnight by the whim of a corporate executive. I didn’t have all the answers, I just knew I’d have to modify my dreams or magnify my skills.
This was a defining moment in my life that changed my whole approach to making money in today’s fast-paced economy. I knew I had to control my own income streams and that business ownership or investment income was the only way for me to accomplish this.
I researched many companies and came across what seemed to be an endless amount of opportunities on the Internet; the only variable in the equation was me. There were people succeeding all around me in different network marketing companies, affiliate deals and investment opportunities, so I could see which systems worked best…the only question was, what void in the marketplace was I going to fill with value.
