I have been in and out of network marketing, mlm, internet marketing, affiliate marketing... you name it, I have probably done a version of it. lol And for most of those years I really tried hard to make it work. Some things I did okay, and others not so much. One NM company I was with I would probably have done okay eventually but the economy hit and because of the nature of it, I quit. But throughout most of those years I missed so much of LIFE. I put my businesses before my kids... before my marriage... before relationships... and I have decided that no amount of money can ever take the place of those kinds of things. I have a new motto now that I am trying to both live by and build a business with and it's the butterfly motto. " We can chase that butterfly all over the field in hopes of catching it... OR we can relax, enjoy the field and let the butterfly come to us..." It's much more enjoyable this way!
