Financial Freedom by Rick Hannon

 Let me start with a personal quote “Financial Freedom is the by-product of helping other’s achieve it!”

The reason I have financial freedom is directly linked to helping others obtain it. When we focus on helping entrepreneurs succeed in an enterprise, it brings us along with them as we travel the road to success together. It’s the best part of the journey to blaze the trial and bring others along with you. It’s one of the most rewarding experiences in life, helping others achieve success as you build and grow together.  Together, you are breaking free from dependence on a limited a salary and job that’s going nowhere fast.

I have also discovered, in my case, financial freedom is also time freedom, which translates into a designer lifestyle.  True freedom is when you can travel to different places in the USA and across the globe whenever you want to.  When it’s cold up north in New York where we live, we usually share our time down south, mostly in Florida as well as down under in Australia.  When the summers are hot and humid in New York, we head up north to our lake home in Canada. Why? Because it’s too hot to work! It’s time to hit the water, swimming, boating and fishing!

Financial freedom is many things, the obvious being relief from the stress of not having enough money to truly live the life you dream of. To live where you choose, in the house you want to, and to drive the vehicles you want to.  In addition, you are also able to give more to the charities and causes that you believe in and have a passion for. As you are able to pay for your children’s college education and relieve their burden of student loans is a great blessing. Still my favorite benefit is the time freedom it brings to enjoy life with your family when you want to.

I suggest you start on the road to financial freedom, I realize there are risks of time and money to start a business on your own without experience.  You have to wish it – dream it – and just do it, trust your dreams. Forget about yesterday’s failures, remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery,

but today is a gift from God, that’s why it’s called the present, use it wisely. 

It’s later than you think. Although no one can go back and have a new start, anyone can begin right now and have a brand new ending. You have to forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know before you learned it! I know it’s an inconvenience to start a new venture and learn as you go. Understand that an adventure wrongly considered is an inconvenience; however an inconvenience rightly considered is an adventure.

My advice is to pick a successful entrepreneur in a low risk internet marketing business or a business you feel to gravitate toward, follow the lead and advice of the successful professional. Learn to build a lasting network that will continue to pay you even when the work is done! Use your vision and apply it.

Vision, without action is merely a daydream, where action without vision is a nightmare.

Sure the road to success and financial freedom has bumps and setbacks and curves and cliffs. It reminds me of a story about an adventuress guy who owned a cabin on the mountain. One Saturday morning as he was driving up the curving mountain roads in his powerful sports car going way over the speed limit although he knew the road like that back of his hand. Suddenly a car came flying around the curve careening out of control right into his lane, then back out and back in again coming right at him. He thought to himself my goodness I’m going to be killed, than at the last moment the car moved out of his lane and a beautiful woman stuck her head out the widow and yelled “PIG”! What, he though, she was in my lane, how dare she, he quickly stuck his head out the window and yelled “Sow” then chucked at his fast reaction to getting back at her for calling him a pig. With that said, he down shifted his car put the petal to the metal driving real fast around the blind curve ahead and ran smack into a huge pig!  What was the moral of the story? Don’t just jump blindly into the next opportunity, start running with it, pouring all kinds of money and time into it without first researching the business thoroughly. We know the road that leads to your dreams has shoulder on the side of frustration and a further to the right the ditch of discouragement. Yet you are traveling on the right road to your dreams and need to stay focused on the goal of financial freedom and not the discouragements. Remind yourself you are a creation of God and have great talents and abilities at your resource, if you just trust yourself and your ability to produce and achieve great things. Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must. But take the step!

I grew up on Long Island NY; I met my wife Cindy in High School, we dated for several years and I went off to college for two years studying Construction Technology while we maintained our relationship.
I began working in NYC with a Construction Union. It was during those six months I realized I could not be an employee and needed to be self-employed if I was going to be happy in life.
I found a job locally working one season for a Landscape Contractor and learned the trade along with attending Night College in horticulture and Landscape design at the Farmingdale College. Knowing I enjoyed this field I started my own business at the age of 21. One year later I brought our first home and married my High School sweetheart Cindy the following year.
I enjoyed self-employment but discovered the business owned me.Then, during one of my unemployed winters, a friend introduced me to MLM. I fell in love with the concept of duplicating and multiplying my efforts through other people. That company was not a fit for us, but it did open my mind for other options when I saw an ad in the Wall stream Journal that lead me to be sponsored and trained by a young couple who were earning a six figure income in another more duplicable Network program.
I quickly learned how to develop a team who could help us build a second income stream part time.Cindy and I were fortunate to have been able to achieve enough success to be placed on the speaking circuit at a very young age. During the next two years we grew and learned the basic fundamentals of building a network.Unfortunately that company when out of business due to poor management.
Over the years I have made other attempts to finding the right program for us as I knew and believed in this concept and the industry. I knew I could succeed, and I knew people who felt as I did; in 1992 we finally found it. We are now celebrating our 25th year with the company, and we now have a global network in many countries with more than several hundred thousand people in our organizations and over 200 people in the Million Dollar Club and hundreds earning six figures with thousands full time.
We have traveled across the USA training other entrepreneurs how to build a solid income part time. We have been and continue to train globally in Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Singapore, and Taiwan. We also have businesses in Spain, Hong Kong, and soon Malaysia; we will plan on trips to those countries.This is a designer lifestyle, I have helped many others reach their goals through it, and will continue to do so. We have truly been blessed and thank God for our success.
