AJ's business story

You will remember that I was sitting at my desk.

The desk was covered with bills.  Credit card bills.  Power bill.  Telephone bill.  A rent check.

I shook my head.  Every month my debt was worse.  Every month I was more sad.

Feeling hopeless, I looked up.  I saw a book I had bought long ago....

... a travel guide to India.

I grabbed it.  I read it.  I saw myself traveling in India.  I imagined being in a strange new world.

I forgot my problems and dreamed of India.

I remembered my dream:  an international life of adventure.

And then I knew-- something had to change.

In fact, "something" did not need to change.  "I" needed to change.

It was me.  I was the only one who could save me.

Only I could escape hopelessness.  Only I could achieve my dream.

All of my life I said, "I am not a businessman".  I told myself that being poor and bored was "normal".

I walked into work smiling.  I improved my management skills.  I improved my customer service skills.

My life improved.  My business attitude gave me a new feeling of hope and strength.

Then a magical day arrived.  I walked into the travel agent's office and said, "I want a round trip ticket to India!"

It was an incredible moment,.... but a BIG problem waited for me when I got home.

My life was super-stressful after that trip.  Life actually got worse.

My solution to that problem changed my life forever......
