“I started realizing that every month her checks (from this home business) got bigger and mine got smaller.” says Fernando, a former landscaper. Initially, he saw their home business as Isabel’s “thing,” a way to replace her income from cleaning houses. ” Thanks to our mentors, I finally understood it was so much bigger.” Having time to play with the kids (12, 8, 6, and 1) and drive them to school is “priceless.”

Being home to take Roxana (6) to school and pick her up is, in the words of her dad, Enrique, “my biggest dream come true.” When he and Juanita started their home business, “It would’ve taken me a year at my job (as a cook) to pay her tuition.” Adds Juanita, “We’re even buying our first house – with cash, which is pretty awesome! There are so many places to see and so many people to help that we can’t sit still,” she says. The couple dreams of helping the disadvantaged in their native Mexico by building an orphanage or shelter for unwed mothers.

Highly skilled doctors, Guillermo and Elina were focused on healing, but had little time to enjoy life. “We owned two medical clinics. Elina ran one and I ran the other,” says Guillermo, who dreamed of finding time to travel. Since selling the clinics three years ago to concentrate on building their home business, they’re finding time to do that and so much more. “We adore the beach, so we want to buy a small house on the ocean to come home to from our travels,” Elina says. Guillermo longs to see Ethiopia again, where he once worked, as well as Paris, Italy, and Spain. “This has been the perfect business venture to guide us into our future,” she says.

Young married couples both work, and get accustomed to a double income; the wife quits her job to begin a family; and when the children come, she is reluctant to leave them to return to her former job. The solution to that delemma might be this business, which allows her to contribute to the family finances without leaving home. It was just such a motivation that led Jerry and Sharyn of Texas into the business. Sharyn had two children, both under two years old, and faced the prospect of leaving them to go to work. She saw the business as an alternative. After Jerry joined her in the enterprise, they built it into a full-time income- at one time they had four children under five years old- and have become totally financially free.

Werner, a Canadian now transplanted in Phoenix, Arizona, saw this business as a means of escape. In his case, it was not so much his dislike for his job, as his feeling that it was a dead-end street, that made him look for a way out. At the age of thirty-seven, he worked in the oil and gas industry in western Canada. He had worked his way up to the second-highest position in his company after nine years, when he realized that he had exhausted his potential for advancement. “All of a sudden I woke up,” he recalls. “I could see that, even though I was making more money, our standard of living was dropping each year.” He and his wife, Erna, got into this business and are now financially free. “It’s a Cinderella business,” he says. “Dreams really do come true in this business. In my old job, I used to work three days and nights without sleep, wading around in mud up to my waist. I knew I didn’t want to be there when I was fifty, and, thanks to this opportunity, I won’t be.”

Work very hard now, and keep reaping the profits into the future. The opportunity for that kind of income is what this business offers. Wayne, from Texas says it best. “I knew a guy down in Texas who owned some natural gas wells,” he says, “and the man told me that every month he gets a check for eight thousand dollars as a royalty off that gas well. That’s what I call “walkaway income.” You don’t have to be there looking after it every minute for it to produce. That’s the way people get paid for writing a song, or writing a book, or inventing a new gadget. I wanted that kind of royalty-type income. This business came along and gave me an opportunity to use my skills to do that. I couldn’t write a book or a song, and I couldn’t accumulate the capital to drill an oil well; but in this business I can still use my skills and my hard work to build an income that will keep on coming!”
