01:05
now to Ben Wilson who actually is a
01:08
member of our inner circle there was a
01:09
guy who basically lost everything in
01:11
2007 during the crash of the real estate
01:13
market and then what saved him was a
01:16
hotdog cart and so I’m gonna let him
01:18
tell his story go ahead and take a
01:20
listen right here well I got started
01:22
because by accident I had never I didn’t
01:25
grow up dreaming I was going to start a
01:27
hotdog cart I never even considered it I
01:29
have a hot dog so all my life but
01:32
usually cold right out of the pack grew
01:34
up for and so I used to have a chain of
01:38
furniture stores my wife and I had
01:39
opened up a small furniture store ended
01:41
up growing into a multi-state chain we
01:44
made a ton of money then in 2007 the
01:48
housing market collapsed and housing and
01:50
furniture are tied like this and we lost
01:53
about six tons of money
01:55
we went bankrupt and on food stamps and
01:57
I was trying to figure out a way to feed
02:00
my kids their spoiled little brats and
02:02
they wanted to eat everyday and we moved
02:03
five kids into a two-bedroom mobile home
02:07
in East Tennessee up in a holler which
02:10
is like a little crack in the mountain
02:12
I learned about another vendor who had
02:16
saved his home and family with a hot dog
02:19
cart and I was like oh I could do that
02:21
you know I could get off food stamps and
02:22
so I decided to get a hot dog cart so I
02:24
beg pardon stove and and everything I
02:27
could that wasn’t nailed down to go get
02:29
a hot dog cart and I got a hot dog cart
02:30
and and started finding and it worked it
02:34
actually worked and so I started making
02:37
money every day I was making cash money
02:40
and was able to get off food stamps
02:41
almost immediately within a couple weeks
02:43
I made a lot of mistakes and a lot of
02:46
those mistakes you know I corrected as I
02:49
made them none of them were fatal there
02:51
were little mistakes
02:52
some of them bigger mistakes but all of
02:54
them solvable and and I just kept going
02:58
and I learned from from that and over
03:01
time I was able to gain expertise I mean
03:04
that’s the that’s the true word for
03:06
expertise I think or the definition is
03:07
as experience I was able to in the first
03:13
seven weeks buy two more carts with my
03:16
profits off the first cart then I was
03:19
within the first year a little over a
03:22
hundred and twenty thousand vending with
03:25
carts and multiple carts running now I
03:28
made tons of mistakes but I learned from
03:30
those mistakes and changed my business
03:31
plan but I was able to accomplish being
03:35
able to get out of that two-bedroom
03:37
mobile home were five freaking kids
03:39
those tough the biggest thing I
03:42
accomplished I didn’t intentionally
03:45
become an expert it just happened and as
03:49
far as the teaching that just was just
03:51
by pure accident and people were pulling
03:55
over asking how you know or stopped to
03:57
get a hot dog and how’d you get started
03:59
my niece needs help or my grandson needs
04:01
help or I need help or whatever it is
04:03
and so I started teaching them and then
04:07
I put a video on youtube and then that
04:10
took off like crazy and I say like crazy
04:13
they got more than three views and I
04:15
thought I was you can start
04:18
not really but I but people started
04:20
messaging me through YouTube and going
04:22
how did you get started what did you do
04:24
what about this what about this
04:25
situation nuts so I just started I
04:27
created a blog called learn hot dogs
04:30
calm and that’s what inspired that I’ve
04:33
been fortunate enough to help thousands
04:35
of people now and there’s tons of
04:38
stories I could tell you about the
04:39
chiropractor that got sick and tired of
04:41
chiropractic medicine and when the
04:43
economy collapsed he was also affected
04:45
and he had multiple offices and he ended
04:49
up buying one car hoping him and his
04:51
wife could wing it with one car and then
04:54
he ended up getting more carts and more
04:56
carts and more cards and now has a slew
04:58
of cars or as a police officer that was
05:00
hit and and although he has disability
05:03
insurance he was hit by a drunk driver
05:05
and now does over three hundred thousand
05:07
eight years you know with a with frickin
05:09
costs selling hot dogs and so I mean I
05:14
could go on and on and on about the
05:15
people that I’ve been able to help but I
05:18
didn’t I can’t take the credit I hate I
05:20
hate to go yeah I did that I didn’t do
05:23
that what I did is provided some
05:24
information they followed that
05:26
information they got the success they
05:28
did all the work so I wrote something
05:30
they they read it they act played it and
05:33
and it worked and it works for everyone
05:36
it’s like digging a hole
05:37
anybody can dig a hole it’s complete you
05:40
can use the wrong end of the shovel and
05:42
still get a hole it may take you longer
05:45
but if you had an instruction book that
05:46
said hey which into the shovel are used
05:48
to do to everybody dig a hole and quick
05:50
so that’s how this business this and and
05:54
so I can’t take the credit for making
05:56
them successful I just provided the
05:58
information to make it smoother than my
06:01
trial and error trial by fire that I did
06:03
I didn’t even know about online selling
06:05
or online marketing information and
06:08
already had a hot dog saved my life
06:10
which is a course not a story but it’s a
06:12
course and any sold some here and there
06:16
you know but it wasn’t like it wasn’t an
06:18
income earner really and and then I
06:21
found Russell and and I was so inspired
06:24
by the information I said okay I’m going
06:26
to take a little piece of this course
06:28
because that’s what he talks about my
06:29
book
06:30
and sell it for like $8.00 I think he
06:33
suggested like 20 or something in a
06:35
video I what but I did $8 because it was
06:38
just a piece of the book you can get the
06:40
whole book for 20 so I figured I have to
06:43
chapter afraid and I think about 795 in
06:46
the first 45 days we had sold over 500
06:52
of those little mini courses and that
06:54
inspired me to join his inner circle
06:56
which widget which I gathered gobs
07:00
information on how to create a
07:02
continuity program and how to build this
07:05
into a residual income an ongoing income
07:08
every month the future for me is to be
07:11
able to do this more to expand
07:13
exponentially this process and help many
07:16
other people who feel down and out the
07:19
truck-driver the sick and never seen his
07:21
kids ever because he’s always on the
07:23
road the police officers it’s always
07:25
scared today maybe as last day the the
07:28
vet that came back from Afghanistan or
07:30
Iraq or Kuwait or whatever and doesn’t
07:33
know what he’s going to do now just go
07:37
work at Staples or Kmart or Kenny really
07:42

07:44

07:46
