00:41

00:45
actually a sense of time together phone
00:47
hacking live and as you were as we

awarded you the two comma Club slack and
00:51
I heard your story I was so so excited
00:55
for you because you’re a man who does
00:57
never ever quit and never ever gives up
00:59
and I thought you know what people need
01:01
to see what it takes at times to succeed
01:04
when you literally have absolutely you
01:06
burned all the bridges and you make sure
01:07
that no matter what I’m going to make
01:09
this thing happen so real quick I want
01:11
you to die then it’s kind of tell you to
01:12
tell the story you told me at frontal
01:14
hacking life about how you basically
01:15
went from being a homeless to one of our
01:17
two comma Club winners
01:18
he had a super emotional is awesome I
01:21
remember texting my mom and I was just
01:23
like you know I was just kind of
01:26
reminding of the story I mean yes I was
01:28
wasn’t take a step back you know in my
01:31
life I feel that life is composed of
01:33
different orbs right like you have your
01:35
spiritual health you have your physical
01:36
health you have your relationship health
01:39
and you have like what you do on a day
01:40
to day basis like your why like your job
01:42
um for me in my life all of those orbs
01:46
were like not even crushed they were
01:48
like pulverized right I was super
01:50
unhealthy I was like 60 pounds
01:52
overweight
01:52
I was this toxic relationship wasn’t
01:56
very like spiritual or like you know the
01:58
meditation stuff and I hated what I did
02:01
for a living so it’s just not it’s not
02:02
like one thing was wrong like I was
02:04
driving a four-song their car maybe one
02:05
cylinder is bad but I was driving for
02:08
you know Ryan’s on this and the gas tank
02:11
was full of like you know water
02:13
um so I just honestly I got to power I
02:16
broke as a person I literally broke I I
02:19
ended up I literally ended up at the
02:21
hospital um and I frankly I should have
02:24
died to be honest with you not to get
02:25
graphic but I really should have I feel
02:27
like I would say I feel like there was
02:29
divine intervention and I feel I was
02:31
saved immediately I took very serious
02:34
advantage of that I dropped kind of all
02:36
my bad habits and I started fixing all
02:39
these orbs I started getting healthy I
02:40
lost 50 pounds I moved on to a much much
02:45
healthier relationship I started like
02:47
meditating be more spiritual arm and you
02:51
know praying and stuff and everything
02:53
was going well now I’m like well on the
02:55
road to recovery but you know what was
02:56
still like messed up is I hated what I
02:58
did for a living at the time I was in
03:01
our retail and I hate retail I call it
03:04
mainly it honestly I heard some handmade
03:07
prints because you’re stuck in this box
03:09
or they’re nothing but angry customers
03:11
all the thought of it are customers to
03:12
think that they’re right so every day
03:16
every day I’m searching searching and
03:18
matter of fact I was searching on
03:18
Craigslist every single day I wanted
03:21
something to do something different
03:23
finally I bumped into some online
03:28
offering it was like a like an online
03:31
franchise I suppose I guess in the realm
03:34
of like network marketing but not not so
03:36
much and it was about selling digital
03:38
products online and the second I saw
03:40
that day honestly I felt like the dude
03:42
um Keanu Reeves from like the matrix
03:45
right I just saw everything clearly like
03:49
for the first time in my life you know I
03:51
saw like a big red call-to-action and
03:53
like I know why that’s red I know why
03:55
that’s there and I saw this big
03:57
testimony in like I know I that’s there
03:59
I know why that person smiling in that
04:01
picture like I can just si no experience
04:04
in the stuff that I just saw and I’m
04:06
like this is what I want to do I have to
04:08
be involved in this um but I was like
04:11
you know I’m just recovering from almost
04:13
dying in Oscars I have nothing to my
04:15
name
04:15
um and I literally only have one eye I
04:20
would have nothing to my name but this
04:21
time I had left everything right and I
04:23
went to and I migrated West to
04:25
California
04:26
and I was looking for an office oddly
04:29
enough I had no money for an office I
04:30
don’t have no idea why I was looking for
04:32
an also season end up in dislike back
04:35
road you know industrial building in
04:37
some weird area in the off skirts of San
04:40
Francisco and she’s giving me the tour
04:43
of the building I’m like I have no idea
04:44
why I’m even on this tour and at the end
04:47
of the tour it’s like it was like a
04:49
movie there was like this dark corner
04:51
there I hate and like this door I’m like
04:53
what’s that over there
04:54
and she’s looking at me weird like what
04:56
she’s like that’s the electrical room
04:57
that’s where we house the wires for all
04:59
the phones in the building and I said
05:01
can I see it and she’s looking at me
05:04
like what like ok so I guess so she
05:07
takes me in there it’s a size like a
05:09
decent walk-in closet you know like that
05:11
someone will have in their home there’s
05:12
all wires everywhere exposed vents no
05:15
windows look it looked like a jail from
05:19
a third-world country and I was like
05:22
ELISA and I just told him I stretch to
05:23
listen I have no money I had to pick oh
05:26
I’m looking for a fresh light can I live
05:30
here and lucky for me she was like this
05:33
old school hippie and she looked at me
05:35
weird she’s like I’m sure obsession oh
05:38
she felt for me she’s like sure there’s
05:40
a hundred it like a hot like around $100
05:42
a month utilities included so no windows
05:47
no showers no bathroom to shave or to
05:52
wash my face I had to take a hot plate
05:53
put a pot of water eat it up and kind of
05:55
wash up and kind of you know use like
05:57
some reflection of something as a bird
05:59
of I had a cardboard box as like coffee
06:02
that’s how I was living you know and
06:05
shit yeah so then I discovered this I
06:08
wanted to be on I wanted to get online I
06:10
want to start my online business but as
06:12
you know Dave you need a little bit of
06:13
seed money to start right but I’m not
06:15
Here I am in a shoe closet you know with
06:18
no windows not any money I have one
06:20
asset to my name a beat-up 1986 I mean
06:24
real beat-up old Mercedes and it’s not
06:27
nearly as awesome at that sound okay
06:31
it was what I was worth $2,000 and I
06:34
sold it and and people are telling I’m
06:37
crazy because I at this point
06:39
don’t have a job I don’t have any money
06:41
like you need a car to get around try to
06:43
like interview for jobs and you know try
06:45
to make it happen I was because you know
06:47
I was living like the middle of Noah and
06:49
I did I just burnt the bridge I just
06:52
literally burnt the ship down as well
06:53
you know what they call and I said no
06:54
I’m all-in and I went in with this
06:56
mentality day but you know I’m all-in
06:58
and I’m just going to make this have
07:00
been in a fight and there’s no fail here
07:02
like I’m just I’m cashing in all my
07:04
chips and I took that $2,000 Dave and um
07:08
you know I I got into that business and
07:11
guess what my first month on the phone
07:13
every single day on every single day
07:16
talking to potential clients every
07:17
single day not a single sale not a
07:20
single cell for a whole month for a
07:23
whole month and this is where I am
07:24
witnessing day there were 99 10 people
07:28
just as a matter of fact probably that
07:30
the first week so they just they just
07:31
give up and they go back to the job or
07:33
whatever it is or they always try
07:34
something else but and that was me but I
07:37
I’ve failed and my business is way
07:38
before you know before and I love that
07:41
was me but this time I mentality my
07:42
mindset was totally different so I said
07:44
to myself date you know what the phone’s
07:46
ringing
07:46
I can Gary’s online daily I’m just not
07:50
closing so it’s not the system that’s
07:52
wrong and I find most people blaming the
07:53
system it’s something I’m doing
07:55
something wrong
07:56
because I’m getting the least I’m just
07:57
not closing so guess what I tweaked my
07:59
closing my my script I tweaked my script
08:02
and guess what
08:03
ah I closed my first sale and I remember
08:06
as I always did hi tickets of embers 500
08:09
ollars and then next month I closed to
08:11
sales and then I made a thousand a month
08:12
and then 2001 three thousand a book then
08:15
10 then 20 to 30 to get book all fed up
08:17
it up and here we are today and it all
08:21
goes back to selling that receeded that
08:23

08:25
