Instead of doing a regular bio like everyone else, I wanted to do something unique and tell you my story in the form of a poem.
I titled my poem “Drive” because I was running into a lot of problems throughout this journey and I felt like I was driving with no roadmap and constantly meeting with road blocks.
However, I couldn’t give up because I felt like entrepreneurism was in my blood, so I kept pushing forward. I hope you enjoy it.
In 2010 is when it all begin, and I never knew when the journey would end
It all started when I was working at a retail store, the first check I received is something I couldn’t ignore
Only $300 dollars for all my hard work, is this truly what they think I’m worth
What took birth in me was to make my own way, have a home-based business and determine my pay
With minimum wage I did the math and realized it was best to create my own path
So I opened up to the Internet marketing scene, not knowing it was filled with multiple schemes
I thought I’d see a lot of green come really fast, but all I’ve seen is many snakes in the grass
I’m driving down an endless road with no map, and every stop I make is another trap
I keep on driving but every turn I take, I end up running into another mistake
Driven to make it fast with the programs I see, losing my drive now I’m running on E
Driving me crazy so I crash and burn, starting to wonder if I should make a U-Turn
It’s breaking me down and I’m running out of gas, I look for help, but there’s no one to ask
All of these questions with no one to answer, information overload spreading like cancer
Gurus saying in a year I can retire, so I keep burning through my money like fire
Time starts to pass, I can’t rise from the ashes, I’m lost in this journey like the rest of the masses
My heart truly aches from all of these mistakes, is there anyone real or are they all being fake
Wounded and broken from all the money I’ve lost, I’m starting to wonder if my dream is worth the cost
Thought I’d start to reap with all the work I’ve sown, but I meet with defeat trying to make it on my own
All of these worries consume me like a flood, but I can’t escape what’s running through my blood
Although the sharks smell my blood teeming in the water, I just keep swimming to escape their slaughter
Keeping my head above water was harder then I thought, drowning in bills from all the things I’ve bought
As I was sinking faster than quicksand, I was grateful when the good Lord extended His hand
Yes, in my dark cloud there’s a silver lining, I finally caught a break after all my grinding
With all these problems I thought I’d never heal, but my solution came in the form of Jon McNeil.
Constant failure had been my norm, until this kind man weathered the storm
The only one who cared when it all fell apart, he gave me a chance for a brand new start
Proud to call him my official mentor, taught me it’s not about the money but the mindset you enter
And with all of his support and guidance, I was able to escape the den of lions
Now my hope is to replicate what he does; help others get set up, and not set up for every new buzz
I’m willing to help anyone on this journey, who’s willing to learn the laws of marketing like an attorney
As I said, I’ll be here to help, but most of the work will come from yourself
If you’re willing to put the time, money and energy in, the possibility of failing is very slim
If you push through this tough period as it comes, before you know it you’ll be making passive income
With that said, let’s learn the rules of the game, and remember, if I did it, then you can do the same.
