I Do Not Quit
Whatever you do…do not quit
And this is the reason why
I might be one of the most sort after people on the internet but I haven’t always been and it hasn’t been easy to get here.
After finishing an apprenticeship with my Father I started my first business in September 1993 as a general builder and plumber. And built my business with equal shares of success and failure, but I do not quit. Suffering a spell of alopecia from stress and training and practising as a Hypnotherapist along the way.
Fast forward a few years and I thought I had it all. Made a little money on a property investment and paid off all of our debts. I had a nice house, was happily married with 2 Daughters and a top managers job with a great company car. Life was good…
Then in 2005 the crap hit the fan…but I do not quit!
My wife wanted out of our marriage. Took my children with her and left me trying to re-mortgage my house to pay for the divorce settlement. I met someone who started to give me some moral support but then I got made redundant from my manager position due to a company restructure.
I was 35, broke, no chance of getting a mortgage, having to sell my house and an emotional wreck from divorce proceedings.
I just wanted to quit…
But I do not quit!
September 2005 I began again I borrowed an 18 year old van. Got a bag of tools and hit the phones to find myself work. It was hard….But I do not quit!
Again with equal shares of success and failure I struggled to make ends meet and make a new life for myself….
Success in building and managing training schools and setting up a national accreditation scheme saw myself getting back on my feet, Marrying Vanessa in 2007 and living a good life.
But things started going wrong again. My business partner became unreasonable and started to make things very difficult. I later found out there where several people he had been like this with in the past. History was repeating itself. I walked away leaving £20k on the table.
But I do not quit!
Starting again in December 2008 with Vanessa heavily pregnant I was back in my van looking for work, and I found it, because I do not quit…
2012 saw me building a business and getting contracts with my own retail shop, 3 employees and a flow of work. But I was not happy. It was hard keeping the work coming in, and when it did not come in, bills and employees still needed to get paid…but I do not quit!
Having to borrow money to buy food, pay your mortgage and other bills is no fun…but I do not quit!
I let my staff go and started looking for another line of work. But I do not quit…
I set to work with on dream to retrain as a network marketer, build relations within the industry and start my own internet based company.
And you know what? I did!
I did, because I do not quit!
So within 12 months I became a joint CEO of powerofthreetimesthree.com and one of the most sort after people on the internet… Life is good again…
Because I DO NOT QUIT!!!
