Hey There Great To Meet You…I'm David Puttemans
How many people do you know that are either:
• Broke and unhappy
• Live paycheck to paycheck
• Have unwanted debt
• Feel like they’re working to build someone else’s dreams
• Can’t enjoy life because they feel restricted
Well, that was exactly my life back in 2013!
Have you ever felt like there’s more to life? That you should be experiencing more, having more fun, inspiring more people and making your mark? Maybe you simply wish more than working the plan, spending life answering to someone else.
This is my story how I went from a frustrated, € 10K+ debt independent business owner, to building the business of my dreams, being now a happy stay-at-home dad who enjoys time with his family and is helping others build the life of their dreams.
How I Stumbled into Network Marketing
Back in 2012 I was the typical quintessential workaholic, working 80+ hour weeks, and going weeks on end without a day off. I completely missed out on social life, even missed family gatherings, friends parties, and yes even weddings, all in the name of working the plan. All in the name of ambition, untill Spain was hit hard by economic recession, and all that I had worked for over the last 6 years went down the drain in less than a 12 months, and I went into debt…… BIG TIME! I was depressed, even angry. It wasn’t just the financial struggle though. I kept thinking…”How could all of my sacrifice lead me here…with nothing to show for it?”
I than remember one Saturday morning sitting at my desk, waiting for some or other miracle to happen and beating myself up again wondering how and where things could have gone wrong. I was living paycheck to paycheck, living a weekly routine over and over, with no improvements on the horizon whatsoever. I’d had enough and I remember shouting it out “I want out of this. I have to find the way out!”
That´s when my pal Google showed up! Simply typing “make money online” in the search bar opened a new world for me: NETWORK MARKETING! A few hours later, I was on Facebook chatting with a great guy called Dustin, who presented me to what was going to be my first make money online opportunity that showed me how to create the life I want.
My First Year
I was given the opportunity to create an amazing journey, knowing that it would not be a walk in the park, as becoming a network marketing entrepreneur brings about new struggles and challenges to see how bad you really want it. And ooh boy, did I want it bad! However 6 Months into business I had sponsored 6 people in total, making me a whopping $150 in residual commissions a month. I knew however network marketing works because I was around people who had success, who were making a nice little income.
So if the industry was not the problem, what was? ME?
Another 6 months down the road I had no clear vision anymore. I lacked confidence, lacked influence, lacked discipline and the list goes on and on. As a result of that I got caught up in what they call the shiny object syndrome. Every next big thing in the marketplace was a lifesaver. Every next big thing was a solution to my problems. The reality was harsh, failure was becoming a part of my life, spending 1000′ s of dollars with nearly no return on investment left me on the verge of bankruptcy. Being confronted afterwards with personal related problems, I found no other way out than throwing the towel in the ring and give up my network marketing superstar dream!
Back in Business
After a hard year, life was getting better again! My offline business started improving in sales, and we even found the energy to do some new startups, all brick and mortar, but there was still a BIG PROBLEM. I wasn’t making enough money to clear my debts from over the past 2 years. Some more changes we´re needed if I was to become debt free, and above all to start enjoying life to the full again.
I decided to take the plunge and started learning with renewed energy how to build a business online. Having learned from my mistakes I knew the industry could open some doors to success and personal development, and one foot in front of the other I began educating myself. It wasn´t solely about the money any more, but about freedom to make your own decisions in life not having to depend on other people.
Since I made that decision to start re-educating myself, things started to spiral upwards. I´ve since developed online skill sets that have improved both my on and offline business. Not only did I learn how to generate leads for my business and attract new customers and teammates in my direction, but my business has flourished since. It seems like I´m seeing the world through a new set of eyes.
Now, 2016, I’m so grateful to the network marketing industry and the wonderful people in this business. I’ve been able to shift from an absolute workaholic depending on someone else, to build a business the way I want to build it. Now I feel my time has come to pay it forward, and teach what I’ve learned so far about marketing and home business success.
I’ve got big plans for my business, for my team, and for life in general. My goal is to have my team totally integrated and committed to achieve the true internet lifestyle, with a focus on educating myself and other entrepreneurs in my team on how to network online, use social media to build a community, share value and increase online visibility to build trust based relationships. I truly wish to be an inspiration to those around me, and get an amazing amount of satisfaction out of helping people discover what’s possible.
What I’ve learned from this amazing journey s is that every person’s destiny is in their own hands. It’s your decision to stay where you are or move on and up in life.
It all comes down to making a decision.
