Hey there, my name is Carl Chia and welcome to my website!
Are you here because you are looking to build a successful business from home or the network marketing profession? And you need help getting new leads, sponsoring new business partners and growing your business faster both offline and online?
Great! Whatever brought you here, stick around. Benefit from what I share through my videos, blog posts and other resources.
In 2011 I got tired. Tired of working random hours and not being able to spend more quality time with my family and girlfriend. I had been in the fitness industry for over 4 years and while I like helping people achieve better health and fitness, it came at the expense of my own well-being. The more clients I coached, the more tired and frustrated I became. The money was good, but I started to burnout and got really tired.
I started to look for a better way. A long term solution that would allow me to earn a good income and spend more time with the people that I should really be spending with, and of course, to create a better lifestyle for myself.
Growing up as a teenager, I didn’t know what would I be doing eventually, but I always wanted something that could offer me the time freedom to be able to create my own lifestyle. I thought of different ways and kept coming back at one. It was the only way that made sense and would helped me achieve my goals. And it was the home based business, also known as the Network Marketing profession.
I Got Started
I had heard about Network Marketing before, but I did not know much about the profession. You hear stories of people making crazy money and buying nice cars and also stories of people who did not achieve much success. It was pretty scary not knowing much at all, but I always keep my options open and when a friend introduced me to a Network Marketing company, it seemed like the right choice and I jumped right in.
However, I made a mistake. I did not really like the company itself and the company’s products. So why did I join in the first place? When you were new and all you thought was about money, you didn’t know better. And that was a big mistake that I have learnt. I realized that if you are not passionate about the company and the products, you will never achieve success in your home business. After several months attempting to build my first Network Marketing business, I decided to give it up because I was just making no progress.
I knew that the business works, but I just haven’t figured out how to make it work.
My Life Changed!
(Earning some cash and products from my mentor for being the top sponsor in our team!)
I couldn’t give up my fitness career yet because it was my only source of income. And I was still passionate about fitness. I’m always learning and decided to search for the best person to learn from to upgrade my skills and knowledge so that I can better help my clients. It took me awhile to find the right person, but when I did, my life changed forever. He became my mentor in all aspects of life, be it fitness, business, finance, or personal development.
At this point in time, when I was purely focused on my fitness career and not involved in network marketing, it gave me a huge surprise when I found out that my mentor has been building his Network Marketing business for more than a decade! The man that I respected the most! That totally changed my perspective about the profession and made me take a serious look at it again. Soon enough, I got started again and this time, I was determined to make it work.
What’s An Average Guy Like Me Doing In Network Marketing
The ironic thing is that I have never thought that I would become a Network Marketing professional.
My impression was that you have to be good at selling, that you have to hard sell, that you need a huge network, and everything else that would put off most people. I wasn’t a born salesman nor was I good at sales. I didn’t want to hard sell and neither did I have a huge network.
However, Network Marketing was the one thing that seemed to fit the profile of exactly what I was looking for (like.. really? I had a negative mindset to overcome, that’s for sure!).
I wanted something in an industry that is fast-growing, recession proof, and that people use and want. I wanted something that would allow me to help people. I wanted something that would allow me to work on my personal development and become a better communicator and leader.
I also wanted something that would provide an on-going residual income. You know, something that would pay me over and over for the work that I do one time!
Most important of all, I wanted something that would allow me to leave a legacy for my children in the future. My parents got divorced when I was just a little kid because of money issues and I didn’t get to see much of them growing up because they had to work huh! I swore to myself that I will never allow that to happen to my kids.
Well, I did not have immediate success, but I did develop my business skills and become a better communicator. I wanted to be one of the success stories and not a casualty!
I Got Serious, But…
Before that, when someone would tell me that network marketing didn’t work, I would actually doubt myself and think twice about it. I realized the fact was that I didn’t know enough about the business at all!
(Despite being very average, I got selected for a leadership course and won the best improvement award!)
I got serious, did my due diligence and went on a pursuit to learn everything that I could about network marketing. The more I read about it, the more it appealed to me and made total sense. It’s not perfect, but it’s better than anything else.
You have individuals such as Warren Buffet who owns several Network Marketing companies. Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) and Donald Trump have written books extolling its virtues. I decided to join the ranks of those who were successful.
I made a commitment to educate myself on what was out there, select something that worked for me and my family, apply the time, dedication and perseverance that I knew it would take and reap the rewards!
I filled up my contact list, both warm and cold market. The people I brought in, didn’t have exactly the same priorities of massive growth and commitment that I had — and I found myself in a conundrum. It wasn’t as smooth sailing as I thought it would be.
Soon enough, I started to run out of people to talk to and most people just were not interested (not the right time yet!). I got sick and tired of chasing and talking to people who were not only not interested, but probably wouldn’t make ideal business partners as well.
So I started to look into ways to generate leads online. Imagine people who would find and contact you themselves and actually want to join your team! Imagine these people who make great business partners because they already believe in Network Marketing and are probably driven, teachable and serious!
