I think we have all known someone in our lives that know anything and everything about everything! They can tell you historical facts, all kinds of interesting stats about sports teams and sports figures. How to run a successful business ( only most of them are not doing it themselves ) the purification process of gold, when the Mayflower touched shore, you name it but they are not successful entrepreneurs and sometimes don't even hold a job. Sometimes they are 50 years old and still in school pursuing an education ( general knowledge ) and proud of what they have learned (justifiably). But all that is is general knowledge and does them no good except to satisfy and comfort themselves. 

 

You can take a welder, an electrician, or anyone else that has been going to school for a trade for a year or two and have been earning a good living for the whole time that that person in the previous paragraph has been acquiring their general knowledge. I love the fact that Edison, one of THE greatest inventors only had 3 months of education and Ford only about 6 years. And it really cracks me up that the people who were accusing him of being ignorant seem to me to be the real idiots. And it seems to me also that the ones who are usually pointing the fingers like that are the ones most guilty. Politicians create a good mental image of that for me.

 

When I first got the network marketing bug I was sold a bill of goods that all you had to do is sign-up and you would be living on the beach in some mansion with a Ferrari or two parked out front. You didn’t need any skill, hey they were going to take care of you. I found out pretty quickly that that was just a pipe dream. I am so thankful that I found Mentoring for free, that was the specialized knowledge I needed and has given me a whole new perspective. It has taught me skills like the color personalities, relationship building, pull through marketing and so much more.

 

I am so thankful for Linda and Michael Dlouhy and their passion for helping others with no agenda. For providing this platform for us and believing in us. Thank you to all my friends on mastermind partners who share their brilliance with me each and every week. And thank you to all the people who download my free e-book and plug it into this wonderful system.
