Journal: I'm 41, broke, no car, lost everything - WATCH ME SUCCEED!

YOU CAN READ MY JOURNAL IN THE "BUSINESS" SECTION

Sunday, December 7 2014.

Hello all!

I'm from California and it's great to be here. Currently working an overnight shift at a hotel desk, barely scraping by.

My story...

I'm going to be a huge success story, considering I'm starting my own house cleaning business next week on literally NOTHING. I've got everything against me, besides my mind and body, lol.

I saw my Father do it years ago before he passed and he brought it to a $300,000 annual net profit business in just a few years.

I'm 41 years old, separated from my wife, no car, no money (about $150), no credit, and behind on my rent.

Yet I've been to heights of income exceeding $100,000 in the past, ran my own online businesses for years, and have lovely children who I need to take care of.

So while I have nearly lost it all, I'm about to get into this new venture and see it through.

1 client is all I need. The rest will follow!

Wish me luck!

Oh, and although I will be doing just about all the cleaning by myself or with my mom or ex wife to help, I have 4 people that I know and are dying to get working for me.

I also met someone that has a close friend who owns 100 apartments who are looking for someone to clean for move-ins and move-outs.

(Not sure if I want to get into all that just yet though, could be hard labor for cheap pay).

Way to stay positive through adversity! I believe it and have done it myself. I started from nothing and now my cleaning biz is grossing over $1M a year. If you believe you can achieve. Good luck my friend!
