Even "Old School" can learn new "Tricks"


 Posted 20 days ago More by Dave K.

Okay, so I am Old School and I’ve worked all my life, working for a boss and not worrying about my retirement. Skilled in my profession – indispensable!! Not having problems finding work, not worrying about my monthly pay check. Even bragging about not opening my pay slip and not spending my pay from three months ago. What was everyone talking about – looking for bargains and sales to save those few “pennies”. If I wanted it I bought it. I didn’t check the price, I didn’t check my change and I gave huge tips. Until one day in early 2015, I was faced with the prospect of retrenchment. This just couldn’t be – this only happened to other people. I knew a few. Felt sorry for them for a while and then got on with my life. Then it hit me. They offered me a package which was nowhere near what I would have earned until my retirement date. I rebelled, fought back, argued and even hated them. How could they do this to me? Stuff them I said. I will show them. I’ll get another job and they can stick their job where it fits best. When reality did set in I found that everything was against me and I couldn’t just walk into another job. The economy had made sure of that. Friends and associates were also being retrenched. My closest friend couldn’t pay his water and electrical bill and had to use water from his swimming pool. He struggled on for months before being forced to transfer ownership of his house to his daughter and son-in-law. They moved into his house and he moved into the one-bedroom cottage with his wife. I was forced to leave my cottage and humbly moved into the spare room of my Ex. And that is where I am today. It takes years, forever to save for your latter days. It takes a few months, a few days to lose it all in panic induced business ventures. I had two choices. To lie down and feel sorry for myself for the rest of my days and die a sorrowful wreck or look at other means of earning a living. I spent days, weeks, months surfing the internet, a lot of it through the night, losing a substantial amount on Forex Trading with unscrupulous front companies who weren’t regulated by their governments. Of the 350 plus trading companies in the UK, only 5% are regulated and I learned this the hard way. I spent countless hours doing online surveys, not getting a cent for my efforts and played online lottery games hoping to win something. Now I find myself, an “entrepreneur”!!!!! After working for a boss most of my life, I am informed that it is so easy earning money on the internet. There are so many experts out there with advice on how to get there. First, there is a gift and then the catch. Pay a monthly subscription and I will be earning a six-figure sum by following a few simple steps. Don’t get me wrong, I have read some extremely useful content about generating leads on the various social media platforms and learning something new every day. I am sure there are ways and there are many self-made millionaires but all I want is my financial independence again. I have found a reputable company, founded in 1998 who provide learning material, platforms, marketing methods and aids, a forum to post questions, a sponsor to guide me, a co-sponsor to assist. I have all I need in one package and I am earning while I’m learning. It’s not a “Get-Rich-Quick” scheme but as I build my team, my income increases until eventually, I will be earning a substantial amount from various income generators: Direct Commissions, TripleClicks Executive Pool Commissions, Co-Sponsor Commissions, TCredits Bonus, ECA Royalties, and SFI Pay-Per-Action! There are also daily draws where there is prize money, of which I have been lucky enough to win $25 so far. So, if you’re “Old School” like me, set in your ways or young and dynamic, SFI will give you a sure way of earning an income. The amount you earn depends on you. What you put into it (your business) is what you get out of it.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Sir. I pray the good God Almighty will continue to uphold and strengthen you. The elders have seen ahead and we can always learn good deeds from their stable. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price... Permit me to share a quote from Lou Hiltz which says * No one has ever drowned in sweat*. If you are old school, you can still get it going big time income on SFI.

Thank you for sharing with us - I think everyone should read this :blush:

Dave your story is amazingly true, lots of people live like this, without preparing for tomorrow, but the truth is everyone should have a backup plan just in case something like this happens. SFI is the light at the end of the tunnel, the one that can keep us from being in this predicament. You have made the right choice, Residual income is what is going to do it for us. Keep working and watch your situation change from bad to good..You are going to make it. Be successful!
