“Without PERSISTENCE, you will be defeated, even before you start. With PERSISTENCE you will win.” Hill


In the past as far as my entrepreneurial life goes, persistence had not been one of my virtues. I would start a new endeavor full of excitement only to see it wane quickly as I realized that it would involve too much time or effort. I searched for programs that would do the work for me on autopilot if you will, the easy way! I didn’t have a system and relied on my own wisdom ( or lack of it, I even thought having multiple streams of income meant being involved in two of three MLMs ) Spent a lot of money on worthless programs and leads.

And when that didn’t work I was off chasing the next shiny object. After all there must be something wrong with the company, it couldn’t be me could it? Sometimes it WAS a problem with the company though but I was not educated enough to know how to pick the right company. “How could it be your fault if you didn’t have accurate, truthful information?” Michael Dlouhy. That was the comforting question that many of us experienced after finding this wonderful program.

Many others will find this program and go through the three steps filled with excitement only to drop off after finding that there is a little time and effort involved like I did previously. And that is too bad, I feel sad for them because the one program that changed my life I see that they did not have the persistence to continue with. I guess I feel sad because I wanted it for them more than they wanted it for themselves! Because I know personally what it can do if you are just persistent with it!

After finding this wonderful program just at the point were I was ready to give up, frustrated and beat up, slowly but surely I began to have some hope again. The personal development aspect of it changed my life, business wise and personal. Learning how to pick a 5 pillar company that I could build once, for me, my kids and grandkids was pure gold. 

 Learning about comp plans and a few key skills led to much more confidence. Am I at the exact place I want to be in my business? No, but I don’t think anyone is, there is always growth to be gained but now I know for certain and without a doubt that I have the right company backed by the right system (MFF) and that I will be successful because I made a decision, have a strong desire, and it’s backed by PERSISTENCE that won’t ever let me give up until I reach my goal.


I am so very grateful for Linda and Michael Dlouhy for coming into my life at just the right and perfect timing and for all my friends and mastermind partners who share their brilliance with me each and every week. And I am thankful for each and every person who downloads my Success In 10 Steps ebook and plugs into the system. Because I am excited to see them grow, the ones who have the persistence to be here a year from now especially.
