Hi Tommie, great post! You remind me when I was making my first blog. I was on Google for 2 days to find how to finish a "banner task" and put a banner on my blog (no YouTube video at that time). Many people underestimate their possibility to learn and even they can get an easy solution and help from uplines, they find it difficult to do something for themselves. This advice is very good reminder for all of us.

When I started SFI 1 year ago on October 1, 2016 I didn't even invest till the next month and invested for a while till I had to wait awhile now I'm ready to invest again. Everyone in this business starts from scratch. I'm here for the long haul for the rest of my life.
