No longer on the scrap heap
No longer on the scrap
Cindy & I live in Sale, Cheshire and until very
recent times I was involved very part-time with a beauty business in Knutsford,
We joined Telecom plus in 1997. We had just closed our
menswear business in Knutsford and we were victims of the mid 1990s recession.
I was 46 years old, owed £130k+, in danger of losing our home, our cars,
our lifestyle and in particular; my pension. I had no-where else to go. My
belief in me was zero!
I was working from home, trying various things
to make ends meet but mainly increasing my costs. My telephone bill was going
through the roof; so when I was approached I was very receptive to saving
money. When the concept of this business was explained to me I realised; bingo!
I had a solution to our problems. If I wanted to save money why shouldn't other
people want to do the same? If they save money they will be happy and because
of the system I'll be happy. I will receive my bonus & monthly commission.
If they are happy, they will recommend more people which means; I will receive
more bonuses & more monthly commission and I will be very happy. I had a
customer driven system to create my income through natural organic growth. No
stock, no staff, and no moaning bank manager in fact, I was in charge again. If
it's got to be; it's up to me! It was then I explained the concept to Cindy and
we joined. I say we because Cindy my wife said, why shouldn't we be successful
and; there's no more selling! A little tip here folks: get partners together
when explaining the plan. It saves time.

We attended training days, we
learned the system and listened to our sponsors
We attended training days, we
learned the system, we listened to our sponsors; in fact we copied them. I
promised myself that if I wasn't working, sleeping or doing essential family
things I would work our new business as much as possible. In our first two
years we went everywhere and spoke to anyone that breathed. We got 100's of
no's and got lots of yes's by consistency and persistency. We introduced new
team members and trained them to do exactly the same; follow the system. We
attended lots of Career Opportunity Presentations (COP's) and more training and
success started to happen for us all. The small team effort has created a
magnificent team for which we are most thankful and appreciative of. It's
fabulous to see success for people who originally gave time to listen to us -
the ones who said yes to a good idea. At the time of writing this, I am 55 and
we no longer have the problems. The £130k+ is paid off. We still have a
nice house, cars and a fantastic pension and I have my wonderful wife, Cindy. I
couldn't have achieved any of this without her. She supported me through
everything; good and bad.
The most important thing to me is; I'm no
longer on the scrap heap and I believe in myself again. It takes willpower,
effort, consistency and focus (which occasionally got hazy for me) but; it is
worth it. That concept that was explained to me back in 1997; I have stuck with
through thick and thin, good days bad days, it didn't matter. I just wish all
those friends who told us it wouldn't work could see us now. We still have more
goals to reach and are looking forward to the exciting journey and; we will be
able to leave a fabulous legacy for our grandchildren; something we never
thought possible back in 1997.
We have lots of grateful thanks for all
the support and the bullying from Clive & Diana our sponsors. And, last but
not least, the biggest thank you goes to a great team. To your
