How to Never Be Broke Again!
For those of you that know my story you already know I am speaking from personal, expensive experience.
So, is it possible to never be broke again?
Well to answer this effectively I need to share a story with you.
I would like to take you back in time to the year 2000 when I met the woman of my dreams “Jenny”. I just knew that this was the woman that I was going to marry. I just did not know how, because at the time (I have to be honest) I was not much of a value proposition:(
I knew I had to do something to create a compelling offer, and I believed that it was for me to make more money.
As luck would have it a few days after I came to this conclusion I discovered a money expo at Darling Harbour, and because I did not have the $20.00 entry fee, I snuck in the tradesman entrance at the back of the convention centre and discovered my first business mentor.
He was a bald fellow slightly round in shape but the words that came out of his mouth hit me like a ton of bricks .
“I have no problem with someone being BROKE, but I have a real problem with someone STAYING broke!”
As the words came out of his mouth I knew I had to learn everything this man was teaching. His name by the way is Mal Emery!
You see, I did not realise it at the time, but the skills that he was teaching me would ensure I could never be broke again and I will explain this in a minute.
I set out to master the skills of Sales and Marketing and invested every cent I did not have to learn how to build a successful business.
Now, because of my commitment level the result was I built one of the largest airconditioning businesses in Australia within 3 years became very wealthy (and yes I got the girl).
It would be good if the story ended there, but sadly it did not.
Because of my trusting nature and at the time not developing great business optimisation skills I was a victim of MASSIVE THEFT . I lost everything I had worked for, I struggled to even put food on the table for my family and because I felt I let everybody down, I nearly gave up on myself.
With a heavy heart, I went and saw my mentor Mal and explained how I had lost everything, and how I was going to go to Byron Bay, get drunk and look at naked women (true story) I was really down on myself.
His loving response went like this.
“OK Ian, if that’s the case it was nice knowing you I guess I won’t be seeing you again. But I don’t think this will be the case!
WAKE UP TO YOURSELF YOU IDIOT! YOU JUST HAD A TEN MILLION DOLLAR EDUCATION. YOU DID IT ONCE, YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN!”
And with those kind words I did wake up to myself, I went on to build 4 more multi million dollar companies and I found another mentor that taught me strong Business Management Skills so that no one could rip me off again.
And this is the lesson to this story!
Because I had developed skills that were valuable to the market place I could always generate money at will as these skills will always be in demand .
And the better news is that, even if I lost everything, (as I had) the real wealth was between my ears and could never be taken away by anyone!
So, if you never want to be Broke again, simply develop skills that are valuable to the market place, and someone will always want you to help them and pay you handsomely.
