I almost gave up — My True Discovery Story
I really want all my business minded friends and followers to see this and experience it for themselves.
The idea of being in business for yourself, the freedom, fulfillment and fun you want, was exciting to me.
You know how when you really wanted something you found a way to get it. That was my experience…
Don’t take my word for it. See it for yourself.
My Discovery Story:
I was born and raised in former Yugoslavia in small Slovak town – Padina in a family of 7 boys and 4 girls.
While in school I wanted to go to a military school and become a pilot like my Grandpa in 2nd world war or a marine like one of my cousins. After trying and failing entry in grade 7 and 8, due to being too skinny and too short, I had give up on the idea.
My older brother (a technologist and working) had a portable radio/cassette recorder and when he visited once left it at home. I became fascinated with it and the Radio Amateur handbook that he left. I wanted to know
Electronics. I found a friend John, in town that finished studying electronics and we became very good friends.
Every chance I got I would go with him on his moped as he went around fixing people’s TV’s.
This was in 1975. My oldest sister got proposed to get married to a man in Canada in 1977. Once married they started to work on papers to bring rest of us to Canada. It was two years and nothing was finalized and I now finished grade 10 (grade 12 equivalent in North America) and was getting ready to go on a bus to city to register for Electronic technician school, when my mom said where you are going, we got papers to go to Canada. I was 17.
So on Sep.19, 1979 we landed in Detroit MI, USA – the closest airport to Windsor, ON, Canada. Got out of the customs and to town called Harrow at 4am in the morning. My brother-in-law was a roofer a he got us employed, the ones of us old enough. So haven’t slept 24 hrs. we went on the roof, to tear off old shingles. I was so tired I almost fell off as a dozed off. So my work career started. We later worked on a farm for a local apple farmer during the season.
In winter I found a Slovak that had a Radio/TV repair shop in the city of Windsor and got employed as a technician apprentice. Before going to Toronto to school in 1984 I was laid off and went and finished the 1st semester and later over a period of 10 years I finished the courses at St. Clair in Windsor and got my mark transcripts from George Brown College in Toronto.
In the meanwhile I started as electrician apprentice and when laid off started as panel bilder and junior draftsmen/ controls designer.
Got married at age 24 to a wonderful Slovak girl born here in Canada. Working allot of hours to keep the family going, as we got 4 children. Usually no time or too tired for anything else, I always had a side job in electronics repairs, or AutoCAD drafting or building PC’s for friends and family. I always wanted to have my own business.
I got involved in network marketing with a health products company and ended up doing pretty good and the company then got bought-out and my network dispersed. Over next ten years or so I would dabble with this or that not being able to commit to anything fully as I had a family to provide for, house & car bills and would work long hours at work.
I got frustrated and my fire died out..
A couple of times I lost my job due to shortage of work for six months and had no way to pay bills. I received no unemployment since I declared I had my own business on the side. That was like a slap in the face, since I’ve paid unemployment benefits for years, so I ended up getting welfare until next job, struggling to keep head above water.
Then I got a job again and things were caught up and overspent, living paycheck to paycheck, no savings until 2009-2010. By now I was in debt, buying everything on good credit, when it happened again. The economy fell, I couldn’t find any work for 16 months. By now I was $100K in debt, lost my cars and home. The only things I could find was billing sales support at a call center for a phone company, which didn’t last , I hated it having to up-sell after they called in to complained about their bill. After I started to train and became an agent for Primerica to sell financial products and life insurance.
When I found some work in my field of controls/PLC programming, I struggled to keep food on the table and kids were forced to go live on their own. We were getting handout from our church and my wife was working as house keeper in an old age home. When a friend referred me to a financial advisor who did a proposal to all my debtors to clear my credit and pay off debts (I lost my own financial planner license as a result of poor credit).
It took 7 years and renting and driving beat-up cars and hard work when I finally broke debt-free and my wife’s body broke from physical hard work.
I kept searching online and trying this or that until I came across a guy on YouTube by name of Vick who was teaching how to make it online and become financially free, when I wouldn’t have to look at a price tag before I wanted to buy something. I kept following him for what seemed like months, trying outdated things that didn’t work anymore, until I caught-up to him in FourPercent. After a year seeing some results and investing in myself came ‘The Challenge‘.
I’m so glad I didn’t give up all those years.
The Challenge is a comprehensive guide and entrepreneur training like no other, multi-income-stream Eco-system where Vick teaches and shows you step by step to develop you into what you imagine and aspire. Building a list, and strategies to dominate and succeed, by doing certain things in certain way, opposite to what everyone else is teaching and doing.
Setting our goal, training our mind to building an entrepreneur empire online. The rest is history!
THE SUCCESS IS THE JOURNEY, NOT THE DESTINATION. IT’S WHAT YOU BECOME!
