Sometimes life throws us into the deep end. 

That’s where you find out if you’re a swimmer or a sinker. 

My journey, like many of yours, started in the deep end – serving rice and beans at a Mexican restaurant. 

But that was just the beginning of a story about dreams, setbacks, and a transformative journey that led me to where I am today.

It Starts with a Dream (and a Lot of Rice and Beans)

Back in 2010, I was that guy behind the counter, handing out plates of food, but my head was always buzzing with bigger dreams. 

I had this burning desire to succeed online, to build something of my own. 

Every break, every spare moment, was spent in a corner, hunched over my laptop, trying to figure out this whole online business thing.

The Break I needed

Fast forward to a marketing event that seemed like just another day. But it wasn’t. 

That day, I met Mark Hoverson and Cedric Harris. 

These guys were living the life I was daydreaming about behind the counter. 

They were my ticket to the big leagues, or so I thought.

Missed Call, Missed Opportunity

Cedric called me after the event, wanting to join my affiliate network. 

But guess what? 

I missed his call because I was at work. 

By the time I got back to him, he had signed up under someone else. 

That hit me hard. It was more than a missed call; it was a missed opportunity, a big one.

Four Years of Self-Doubt

Instead of bouncing back, I fell into this hole of self-doubt and what-ifs. 

For four years, I tried to convince myself that I was okay with just the restaurant gig, that my dreams were just that – dreams. 

But deep down, I knew I was fooling myself. 

You can’t just switch off a dream, can you?

A Wake-Up Call

Then one day, Mark Hoverson walked into the restaurant where I worked. 

Seeing him there, talking business, living the life I wanted – it was a slap in the face, in a good way. 

It woke me up. 

I realized I wanted to sit at that table, not serve rice and beans to it. 

I wanted to be in the game, playing it, winning it.

Back in the Game

So, I jumped back in. 

I started working with Mark, surrounding myself with people who were where I wanted to be. 

It’s incredible how being in the right environment changes you. Ideas started flowing, opportunities started coming, and I started growing.

Your Turn

Now, it’s your turn. 

Maybe you’re where I was, serving rice and beans, literally or figuratively. 

Maybe you’ve missed a call, a chance. 

But here’s the thing – it’s never too late to pick up the phone again, to make that call, to take that chance.

Get back in the game. Surround yourself with the right people. Chase those dreams. Because, trust me, it’s worth it.

And if you’re feeling stuck, reach out. We’re here to help, to be part of your journey, to make sure you’re swimming, not sinking.

Let’s turn those missed calls into success stories. Together. 🚀🌟
