Hi, my name is Denis and I currently reside in San Jose, California near the home to technology giants Apple, Intel, Facebook, and Google. Thanks for stopping by!
The reason why I am writing this story and created my blogs is because I have been constantly approached by four different types of people:
No matter which category you may fall in, I want to take this opportunity to share with you the
secrets mechanics of achieving financial and time freedom, but before I get into that, let me tell you a little about myself…
As the son of immigrant parents that began their lives here in America as a cleaning lady and a errand-boy, I feel fortunate enough to be blessed with parents who believed in giving their son a great education. It was very hard on us growing up, but since then I’ve been working as hard as I can to make good on their sacrifices. What I’m trying to do today is not just a career but it’s a dream. It’s also a struggle, voluntarily self-imposed.
As a biomedical engineer pre-med college student, I had ambitions to become a doctor and help others with their health. I was also a community organizer and biomedical science researcher passionate about a health awareness campaign. When I was 20, I founded Team HBV, the first national, collegiate nonprofit dedicated to education and advocacy efforts for hepatitis B and liver cancer prevention and control. The nonprofit has grown to 16 college chapters across the U.S. including top institutions such as Brown, Cornell, Harvard, M.I.T., Stanford, and University of California, Berkeley, and has provided outreach services to tens of thousands nationwide.
Since then I have also been a National Institute of Health (NIH) scholar, clinical researcher, and even recognized by California Assemblywoman Fiona Ma for our community work to make University of California, Berkeley the first U.S. college to provide free and low cost hepatitis B screening services to students, staff, and faculty.
Extremely skeptical about the business model at first because of hearsay about the need to peddle products to friends and family and the risk of losing relationships, I never saw network marketing as a professional career nor did not treat the business as a priority. But one rainy day at age 23 around Christmas time, I received the Rich Dad, Poor Dad ebook by Robert Kiyosaki in my email inbox as a gift from my brother. Intrigued and inspired by what Mr. Kiyosaki wrote about, I immediately went to the local bookstore the next week and purchased almost all of his other best-sellers such as CASHFLOW Quadrant and The Business School for People Who Like Helping People.
One book led to another in my thirst for knowledge to find out if really all the income claims and successful testimonials were indeed true, and soon I found myself being exposed to the works of entrepreneurial icons such as Tim Sales, Robert Allen, Eric Worre, Jim Rohn, John C. Maxwell, and many more.
I constantly updated my warm market lists, called everyone I know, applied the 3 foot rule, had a “portable marketing office” built into the trunk of my car, and never missed a single conference call or meeting. Some weeks, I would even do up to seven presentations a day and if I were not physically in a meeting, I would be on my phone in a conference call.
I even spent and reinvested thousands of dollars on product samples, training fees, and the latest business books and tools, and frequently racked up thousands of miles on my car as I never dared to missed a single team or company event fearing that if I ever did, I would miss an important “nugget” of information that is critical to unlock the secrets of achieving success.
And so three years and many rejections later, I became one of the growing number of Gen Y network marketing leaders for a $500 Million Dollar publicly traded health and wellness company. Building a turnkey marketing system with solely offline marketing techniques that generated over half a million dollars of sales, I was recognized as one of the top 100 (out of 200,000+) fastest growing sales organizations in North America. I made some very good money and even was able to upgrade to my first, super fast luxury sports car.
But despite putting every once of energy I had into my business…
I DID NOT achieve what I want yet… a six to seven figure residual income and complete time freedom.
And even worse, then some things unexpectedly happened that made me “start from scratch” all over again!
2011 to 2012 have been extremely stressful years full of challenges and setbacks that pushed me to the brink of quitting network marketing numerous times. MLM, just like relationships and life, can be very rewarding but may also have its bad times. The only thing constant in life and business in change, and we are just strapped on to the roller coaster ride. Here are the terrible events that unfolded in 2011:
On top of it all, a serious relationship with my significant other fell apart and I began receiving a lot of pressure from negative family members urging me to go back to school and “stop chasing a pipe dream.” Life was very tough. For the first time I felt I was on my own with nobody to turn to for advice and not sure what to do next.
Hitting rock bottom is terrible, but we grow during our toughest times. It is during tough times that out of desperation we decide to change and look for solutions.
And it was only through this past year that I was able to open up my mind to using new hybrid attraction marketing strategies that leverage the very best, simple and duplicatable offline and online lead generation tools and methods to give me and my reps the greatest unfair advantage thanks thanks to the inspiration and guidance from Tim Sales, #1 MLM Professor and Trainer and Robert G. Allen, America’s #1 Millionaire Maker.
Instead of solely relying on traditional, offline marketing techniques such as the “3 foot rule” or “write down a list of 100 friends and family and start calling them up,” I started to slowly apply what Tim and Robert taught me and I was able to start finding quality prospects online and get my business jump-started again. Just dabbling with the new techniques, the results were way beyond expectations!
Of course, just enrolling the right partners does not mean instant success, and there’s still a lot of work to be done, but what really hit home was the fact that with online attraction marketing, one’s business success no longer depends on convincing friends and family to join their business or buying their products. Rather, they can actually attract leads that have absolutely no stigma toward MLM and are actually looking for a home-based business to join.
Moreover, it feels great to have fresh, quality leads refilling your contact-list like clockwork when you want more people to talk to even long after your warm market list runs dry. No longer do my reps have to be pressured to “talk business” with all their friends and family and risk losing relationships because of their business.
If your upline does not have a blueprint to teach you how to attract leads like clockwork or if you are curious about what I learned from Tim Sales or Robert Allen, let’s get in touch so that I can give you some insights into a business concept where you can work from the comfort of your own home and create the lifestyle you truly want.
The irony is that if these challenges would never have presented themselves to me, I most likely would not have the new opportunities I have now and grow into the person I am today and be able to share my experiences as a trainer to help others overcome similar challenges; as a result, I am grateful for the all events and people that I have come across in my journey. You can call it karma or whatever your spiritual side believes in but I believe that helping others getting what they want out of life can help us get what we want.
To give back to the “woodpile” that graciously gave to me, I’ve been inspired to share my experiences and lessons I have learned in my journey to build a rock-solid, recession-proof home-based business… and I’d love to invite you to come along for the journey… it’ll be a heckuva fun adventure!
Stay thirsty my friends,
