Without giving away too much info and scaring you away before you even start following me. I am going to start this series about a year into my recovery from alcoholism and addiction.
I am even going to omit the little part about my year long relapse with drugs! I have now been sober for almost 9 years and clean for almost 7.
Anyways, about a year into my recovery I was out on the town one Friday night. I was hitting all of my hot spots. I mean, who doesn’t love StarBucks and Chapters. lol!Check Out My #1 MLM Recommendation
Strolling through chapters, sipping on a Grande Caramel Macchiato I stumbled across a book in the business section. It wasn’t any book, it was The Book!
The book that would forever change my life. The book that would catapult me into a private jet, perhaps a Ferrari and a 9,000 sq foot beach house.
The book was called, wait for it..
Starting an Online Business for Dummies.
I consumed every word from that book, meticulously went through each chapter highlighter in hand.
I just knew! I had a feeling deep inside my being! That, this was it! I had found my Destiny. I was going to have my very own multi million dollar online business.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be. The universe conspired against me and catapulted me right back where I was, up on a scaffold, slugging 10 inch concrete blocks with my trusty shovel leaning beside me glimmering in the mid day July sun.
It didn’t matter how many times I read that book, or how many more books I bought. I just couldn’t get my empire off the ground.
We have all heard the saying about Genius and Insanity and the fine line between them. You would think that after 9 years of trying, 9 years of stopping and starting, 9 years of failed attempts one would just give up.
So, why haven’t I quit?
The answer is simple, I have a story to tell and my story isn’t finished. I am going to be a 5k Affiliate in the next 90 days and I am going to document my journey right here. More on the One Dad, One Mission part to come.
