Hello, I'm Eddie. Great to meet you!
You've probably found this page because you’re working to build a business from home around your family and you’re looking for a way to do it using the internet.
Maybe it’s your own traditional business or you may be in network marketing or affiliate marketing.
In any case, you're in the right place! I love showing people exactly how to generate leads online so they can build their business from home around their family.
I use a few different techniques to attract people online, but a couple of my favorites are video and social media marketing.
My goal is to help you figure out exactly what your perfect prospect is looking for, build your list, and help you develop your own brand (YOU, Inc.) so that your ideal prospect is attracted to you.
And the best part?
I help people build their business in a way that feels authentic.
I will show you how to put your best foot forward and intuitively build your business with integrity even if you’re new.
* I also know how to do all this around a family AND a full time job.
I’m a single dad of two beautiful girls and I have had to learn how to earn money from home while taking care of them and keeping a full time job.
I'll be honest with you; it’s not easy and there is no “magic button”, but I have tried and tested a few things over the years and found what works and what doesn’t … and it’s absolutely worth it.
It’s worth it to be able to still make money if you have to take off and take care of sick kids.
And … it’s definitely worth it knowing that I’m building a business where I can support my own family and not have to rely on trading my time for money anymore.

To tell you a little about myself, I was exposed to network marketing many years ago when I was in-between jobs doing some temp work. My wife (at the time) was pregnant with our first daughter, we were short on cash, and I was looking for a solution…
I was traveling for this temp work, and I bunked in a hotel with a couple of guys, and one night one of them showed me a DVD of something he was doing on the side to try and earn some extra money. Being in the situation I was in, I saw value there and joined immediately.
Of course I started out by calling everyone I knew and showing them the same presentation I saw, and even though my wife was irritated at first she actually saw value as well and was supportive. We went to events together and she even referred some of her friends and family to me. I got a few customers this way (the primary product was vitamins) and I found a small (very small) amount of success!
Then it happened…
I had run through my warm market. I had already presented to all of my friends and family, and most of them weren't as supportive as my wife and my friends and family that bought a couple of products from me. On top of that, the customers I had were really just checking it out and were really only buying once to get me started and help support me at first. They didn't continue their orders, not a single one.
After falling flat with my warm market, and not getting any support from my upline about what to do next, I quit.
I got a couple of other jobs here and there, nothing that was getting us out of our situation. We still had bills we were late on, the baby was here so we had diapers and formula to buy. It wasn't so good, and we split up for a bit.
After laying low for a bit, we got back together and I got a full time job in technical support, and we started getting our head above water. She was working as a nail technician, and things were okay for a while. We were paying bills, but still living paycheck to paycheck. And if you've been exposed to network marketing before, you know that there is a better life out there than living paycheck to paycheck, so I was on the hunt. I knew there was more to life than this, and I wanted to provide a better life than this for my wife and daughter.
After searching online I joined another company, got told the same training and told to call everyone I knew, so I did. This time around was even worse since, in their eyes, I had already tried this and failed. I got a lot of “pyramid scheme” and “what happened to the last one?” comments, and didn't get any customers, much less distributors. Worst of all, my wife was over it. She didn't believe in the industry and worse yet, she didn't believe in me.
Throughout that time I quite network marketing again, and I worked my way into technology sales at the same company. We had another baby girl, and I was doing very well financially but I still had that “bug” but this time I turned my efforts to real estate investing.
My best friend, Adam, and I started a company where we'd wholesale houses. We sold a few houses and made some decent money at it, but along with my full time job and this side-business I was neglecting my family. A couple of years later and after a few different issues (my inattentiveness being the biggest) my wife and I decided to get a divorce.
Here I was, a newly single father of two.
I had a full time job where I was very successful, I had a part time business where I was mildly successful. I was working so hard to build a future for my family that I neglected the present and I suffered the consequences.
Adam and I decided to put the investing business on hold for a while, we both needed to take a step back and get some other things in line in our lives. I focused on my job and spending time with my girls.
I started getting the hang of cooking, cleaning the house, doing laundry, and making sure the girls' hair and clothes looked good for school (learning to do a little girls hair is quite the learning curve for most dads, haha!) and things started working out well for me.
During my short career in real estate I met another man who is now a very dear friend of mine. Juan and I hit it off and got to know each other pretty quickly, and he saw that I still had that fire in me. I still needed to push myself and do the things I wanted to do in life. Even after I put investing on hold, we stayed connected and he held me accountable for defining my goals. We went through Dave Ramsey's Financial Freedom course together at his recommendation, and he really had a big hand in me looking at network marketing again as a way to hit those financial goals as well as some other general life goals I have.
I really took that knowledge and guidance as an opportunity to take a step back and really look at my life. I was still in technology sales (I still am, see my blog post on that HERE) and I was doing very well for myself. I had been promoted up to the top of what I do now, and the only way was up! But when I looked around I saw my boss and my boss’ boss, and they were all very “successful” in the financial sense of the word, but they were all very “time poor”. They were all working 60+ hours a week and married to the company. I was already several steps toward that direction, and I knew that if I continued what I was doing I would end up the same way. I didn’t want that, and I realized I wasn’t just looking for financial freedom, I also wanted time freedom.
I wanted to be able to spend time with my family and my friends whenever I want, and whenever they need me. I wanted to be able to go have lunch with my daughters at school on a whim. I wanted the time freedom to be able to volunteer with organizations that I find significant and worthwhile. I wanted the time freedom to dedicate to myself so I can pursue my passion of music freely, stay healthy and active, and pursue personal hobbies. I believe that both financial and time freedom are key areas in people’s lives, and I believe they can be achieved separately; but until they are both achieved together one can never truly feel “fulfilled”.
To me, you can be well off financially, but what good is it if you don’t get to enjoy it until you’re old and the people you want to enjoy it with are all old too? And sure, someone who is jobless has a lot of time freedom, but what good is that if you don’t have the funds available to do what you really want to do, or you’re too stressed out about how you’re going to pay your bills and pay for your family’s next meal? I knew that I would never truly feel fulfilled and that I am living my life to the fullest until I have achieved both. I knew that for something to change, I had to change. For things to get better, I needed to be better.
I had been introduced to another network marketing company a few years earlier, and at the time I was till married and both my wife and I had a bad taste for network marketing, so I didn't join as a distributor, but I DID become a customer. It made sense for us at the time, and it's continued to work out really well by helping me save money on a service I already had to budget for anyway (for more info, check out the “Work With Me” tab)
Anyway, I had learned over the years that you need to use and believe in the product to be successful (check) so I went ahead and signed up as a distributor. I made a few of the same mistakes that I did before at first, but then I stumbled on a system that showed me EXACTLY how to brand myself and market myself as a leader online. THAT is what I didn't understand before, and THAT has made all the difference.
Now I'm leveraging attraction marketing techniques, generating leads online, adding people into my network marketing company, and even still making affiliate commissions from those that are happy with their network marketing company and say “no” to mine!
Although I'm still working my sales job full time to pay the bills, I'm steadily building up my residual income and building my network marketing business on the side. I'm successfully balancing my professional, business, and personal life through time management and productivity techniques I've learned over the years and through this system, and I'm more excited about my future than ever.
And this is just the beginning… I’ve got big plans for my business, for my team, and for life in general. I truly desire to be an inspiration to those around me, and get an amazing amount of satisfaction out of helping people discover what’s possible.
I want to extend a sincere “thank you” for taking the time to show some interest and to find out more about me. I hope that in some way shape or form we've made a connection and that I have the privilege of sharing something that helps you build your business and accomplish your dreams.
It really is great to meet you, and if I can help in any way don’t hesitate to reach out.
