A Little Story About My Marketing Life.

I grew up with network marketing (Amway). I know this leaves a bad taste in some peoples mouths but Amway showed me that it is possible for anybody to achieve financial freedom if they have a big enough dream and they are willing to put in the effort to achieve it.

On July 28, 1969, at 10 3/4 lbs I was born in Washington, D.C. My father John E Harvey (RIP) served two tours in Vietnam as machine gunner in the 101st Airborne.

My first experience with marketing was in fourth grade where I began to learn about Amway. I continued to build the business after high school and met a lot of very successful business people. Even though Amway did not work out for me, I met a lot of people that were making hundreds of thousands even millions of dollars a year.

I got back into marketing in the beginning of 2018 and have not looked back.

They Say The Money Is In The List

They say the money is in the list…

This could not be more true. Without a list that knows you and respects you, you will not make much money. I have struggled for months trying to get a solid list put together. I bought every shiny object known to man kind. Sound Familiar?

I bought all those products that promise to make you rich overnight. The products that say you can build a list in a week. The products that promise you the world.

There is no such thing as a quick way to be successful.

I already knew that deep down but I wanted to make money online so bad that I would buy anything that looked good.

I will talk about the different investments that I have made in later posts.

The game certainly has changed.

From the days of door to door sales, to sending a message in an instant. The internet has made online marketing available to anybody with a smart phone or a computer. There are so many ways to make money online, how do you know which one is the right choice.
