I met Fred for the first time today.
He was passionate about trying to encourage me to join
his multi-level marketing scheme in crypto currencies.
I was puzzled because Fred clearly had more money than he needed.
He’d been successful in many other ventures.
And he was well into his 70s.
I marvelled at Fred’s sense of drive,
his relentless passion and his total focus on building his team.
‘What drives you?’, I asked.
He said that when he was younger he was told
that he needed to have seven streams of income.
He only had six. And he laughed.
How could somebody be totally focused on building wealth?
He was travelling the country attending meeting after meeting,
promoting all the time and in every single conversation.
He was a true MLM specialist,
living and working with everyone in his downline.
‘But, surely life must be about more than money?’ I asked.
Fred smiled and continued ‘My aim is to generate opportunities
for people to help them to fulfil their plans and their destiny.
I also spend my money
in ways that others don’t know about.
You see, each of us must find our own way
and then give our all to that.’
