This page about me sets the sail of untold hardship, struggles and hard times I experienced as a growing up kid. How I lost my childhood helping to hawk plantain in the hot sun while my mates were in school.
How I toiled from morning till night and still end up sleeping on the floor with my 6 siblings on empty stomach every evening. Until providence brought Networking and using SBI helped to smash networking.
From where do I begin this story about me from?
As you already know, I started school at almost 10years when my mates were already transiting to secondary schools. Because my parents were poor and couldn't afford to pay my school fees.
My father was a gatekeeper and mother had a small table where she sells petty stuff like sweets, chewing gum, biscuits. Although, her intention was to compliment my father's meager salaries, but it seemed like a little drop in the big ocean.
Life was so tough, that I had to hawk plantains in the hot afternoon after I returned from school. No matter how hard we worked, foods always seemed to be scarce. And most nights, we go to bed hungry on empty stomachs. The hardest hit was Michael, my little brother.
You could almost hear him sobbing all through the night. Such horrifying experience was better imagined than experienced.
Then, I began to wonder if there was a problem with the psyche of the poor. How can a security-man breed children like rat? Imagine 9 of us, 7 children plus him and mother holed up in one small room? Did he ever imagined he could train the 7 of us with the meager incomes he earned as salaries?
Thank goodness, tough times didn't last forever...
Four years after I left school, our tide changed for good.
By chance, I stumbled on a life-changing opportunity that gave a breathe of fresh air to my family. We moved from our squalor of one room to a bigger two bedroom apartment in a better neighborhood. And life began to a have a better meaning...
And from thenceforth...
We now enjoy the luxury of a home where everybody can sleep on a bed and eat 3 square-meals...
So what did I do that changed the tide about me? Did I win a lottery? Or did one of my late uncles willed his fortunes to me?
That's the point and the reason I think we're here...
Therefore, to hit the ground running, this page about me will tend to unveil all our terrifying experiences, suffering, pains, failures and what we did to break out of the shackles of poverty...
It all started with a new biz concept...
I can't actually remember the date, but one bright Sunday evening I attended a presentation in Mr Cosmos' residence. You know one of those nice couples you secretly admire in the neighborhood. Clean car. Magnificent home. Happy children. And always taking vacations outside the country.
Four years down my graduation from school, job was still hard to find, so I kept myself busy by running home tutor, teaching children at home after school during the weekdays while the weekends were reserved for my laundry jobs...
It happened that the Cosmos' were among those I do laundry for. That Saturday morning I was on time and settled on the children's clothes. I was almost folding the last dress when Mrs. Cosmos appeared from the dinning room to invite me to attend the presentation in their home on Sunday...
She called the gathering whether something like Business Opportunity Meeting, yes that was it.
It was at that meeting that I was introduced to a new biz concept called Network Marketing. Network marketing was a new addition to my vocabulary because that was the first time I heard about it and how it could earn me money.
"This is a new way of doing business and currently sweeping the world right now. Of course, the concept is helping ordinary people just like you and I to earn extraordinary incomes every month." Mr. Cosmos continued. He was the resource for the presentation.
He went further "I guarantee it would give you the opportunity to change everything about your life if you join us today and allow us to mentor you"... Then, he paused.
It seemed everything in the room became absolutely silent. The impact was so strong that it jolted me out of my reverie.
And, he concluded. "We'll show you how to enjoy free travels, own a new car and live a nice life. Once you're ready, we'll guide you every step of the way until you start to earn income every month".
"It was that same company that helped to change everything about me and my family. Everything you see in this house was courtesy of this same American company"...
That was it.
It seemed his sermon that evening was centered about me and how I could use such program to uplift my struggling family.
I listened attentively, swallowed every word that came out of his mouth: hook, line and sinker. That night I couldn't sleep. Very early the next morning, I woke Mr. Cosmos up to begin a new life...
For a weather-beaten-street-kid like me, it was a big leap ... a turning point. A new beginning with lofty potentials has just began.
Good a thing, seminars were free and I attended almost all of them, watched testimonies of successful people and listened to motivational CDs. Met lots of crazy excited 'network' people.
It was quite like a cult and stimulating. I discovered being around motivated and happy people also had some contagious effects. I was simply intoxicated with joy and was ready to 'fly'.
But, despite all my commitment, hard work and vision I wasn't anywhere near making the kind of money Cosmos promised I would. Although, I clearly understood what leveraging and duplication meant.
It seemed all my efforts were draining, like someone pouring water into a sieve.
"Am I not following instructions? Then, why was I constantly hitting 'brick-walls'.?" I thought to myself. I increased my "activities". I attended seminars the more. Prospected endlessly. Everything I was told to do by Cosmos, I did.
I had a list of names as long as a big anaconda and I made sure I called everybody on it. And yet, it didn't jell.
That was when it dawned on me that Network Marketing was one hell of a job.
And I made up my mind that I was quitting. Am done and was ready to throw in the towel...
That period as you can see, was quite depressing.
Imagine, the only hope I had to transform my family was gradually slipping out of my hands like sand in the wind...
And I thought to myself: "Do you want to return to teaching those little children and washing clothes for a living?", "Probably, you wish to live the life your parents lived?"...
That brought me to my senses and I went back to searching for answers. This time around, I stumbled on it...
I knew there must be a better way to drive this powerful concept. Then I went searching for guaranteed methods to get results.
If millionaires such as Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump, Les Brown and many others could endlessly extolled the greatness of network marketing. And see it as the fastest route for anybody with shoestring budget like me to secure a brighter future within a short time.
Then, there must be something to it that met the eyes.
So I dived into the Net to keep on searching. It was while I was 'looking' that I stumbled on the truth.
It was difficult to comprehend but true. Because all this while, the sermon in our gatherings has always centered on sales and recruitment.
So, I was quite taken aback to find that if you long to succeed in network marketing, you have to change the old tactics of pitching your biz opportunity and your products.
Because people aren't interested one bit in both. They don't give a damn about how good your products are nor how much money they'll make from your company when they join you.
They are simply looking for ways to resolve their health challenges. They seek solution. And that's what you need to do: look for the best way to deliver your solutions to them.
That was what I did.
I took my biz online, positioned myself as the expert and gave them what they sought...
This was totally at variance to what we were taught to do. To chase after our associates, families and friends. Harassing them till they join us or buy from us..
As you can see, such tactics have become obsolete. Because it breeds resistance and contempt...
Even up till now, I see a lot of new network marketers still make the same old mistake of following that same old pattern that leads no where. Causing them to struggle endlessly in this impressive concept.
So, what is the way forward? And how did we stem the resistance?
We reverted to selling solutions.
Took our biz online.
And waited, because the money eventually came.
Since I was in the wellness industry, I started a website to show people how to use our products to resolve those inhibiting problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, fibroid, weak erection etc.
Then we followed the teaching of SBI! on preselling. Which meant warming them up before pushing them to the sales. We wrote fantastic articles on what they needed to do, the causes of such problem, proven nutritional products to use and recommended those products to them.
And they were happy to heed our recommendations.
It was the game changer...
We got enormous support from SBI in helping us to submit our contents to the SEs for people far and wide to see our biz. And if you watched closely, you'll notice, it's the same tactics that have kept us in biz here at aloe-vera-remedies. com.
By the time I reverted to this singular tactic, making money in Networking seemed like drinking water from a gushing water hydrant by the street corner.
But can we really round up this story about me without disclosing how I found the firm that helped me to remove the stress online?
I finally got a website and took my biz online...
But little did I know I'll ever encounter other online palavers that reared their ugly heads immediately I hit the Net. Such problems as website templates, designs with good look and feel, coding, FTP, GCI, HTML etc. All these stuff were 'eating' me alive.
To my chagrin, the issue of visibility such as submitting my site to the various search engines (SEs) for people all over the world to find me and do biz with me came up. How to rank higher in the SEs. Feedback from people visiting my site....
By the time I collated every penny I'd spent on the different pros to put all these together, I was already approaching a $2,000. And that was equivalent of half a million bucks in my local currency...
Imagine burning over $2,000 upfront? Coupled with my lifesaving and loans that I took here and there. I discovered I've just dug myself into a big hole...
But is there a web-hosting and marketing company that can take away these stress and allow you concentrate on doing other activities that'll help to swell your bank account?
Honestly, it's easier for the camel to pass through the eye of a needle than to find such platform.
Except you have diligently carried out an extensive research and you're satisfied with what you found. With over a 1000 firms online peddling websites and blogs for 10 a dime and each struggling for your attention, then it becomes tougher to decipher the real people.
Except you're lucky. But online luck don't count...
What about me and the over $2,000 that went down the drain?It reinforced my resolve not to relent until I found an all-in-one platform that saved the situation.
The truth about me as a street boy, was that I made sure I get value for every Kobo I invested online.
But unfortunately, I was carried away and wasted a fortune on a useless website package that didn't work. Of course, that experience added to our wealth of experiences. I short is got us better.
I now spend all the time in the world ensuring I get the best bang for my dime. That, was how I laid my hands on SBI.
Since 2013 we found SBI! It has been raw power in our hands, helping us to do amazing things online...
For sure, it helped us to remove all the complexity and technology of building and marketing our new biz without learning those mark-up languages such as HTML, FTP, GCI.

Affording us the opportunity to travel over 15 beautiful cities round the 5 continents without spending a dime.
All our traveling expenses were borne by our partner company: that has redefined what network marketing should be with its out-of-this-world incentives. With its Car Acquisition Reward scheme, we now have the opportunity to drive a brand new car of our choice every three years.
And by becoming product of our products, we rarely visit the hospitals because our supplements worked to keep us healthy by meeting up all our dietary requirements...
