Listening to podcasts changed my life (and my family’s future) forever.
Let me explain…
Some years ago, I was a school teacher and a football coach in Kentucky.
One morning on the way to work, my son asked for my help…
He told me a worker at his daycare was “scary” and that she would lock him in the bathroom in the dark…
I was shocked.
I knew I needed to take a day off work to investigate my son’s claims.
I drove to work to tell my boss I’d need the day off…
She refused, and said to me, “Mr. Sams, your son is not in immediate danger right now. I know you think your son needs you but your job needs you too, so you’re going to have to handle your personal problems after work.”
Angry, I got up and left anyway!
My Suspicions were right…
I promised myself in the car that day, that I’d find a way to earn enough money on my own to quit my job and never have to answer to an employer ever again.
But I didn’t know how I’d do it…
Until I listened to a podcast…
One day while mowing my grass, I randomly downloaded a podcast about online business…
A podcast about a guy, that figured out how to make his family’s entire living ONLINE working at home!
I downloaded another podcast, and heard another story of another person making their living online…
And then I downloaded another podcast, and another, and another…
I heard Story after story about regular folks making their entire living on the Internet.
Those podcasts inspired ME want to make money online working at home too!
One day while listening to another podcast, I heard about a football coach, just like me, who was making money online selling his playbooks…
I thought, “hey, I’m a football coach too! But I have a different playbook. I could sell my playbooks online just like him. If he can do it, I can do it too!”
So I started selling playbooks on the internet…
And wouldn’t you know it…
My online business made enough money to replace my full time job’s income, quit my job, and change my family’s future forever!
That is the power of finding an online business idea, and figuring out how to make it your own!
And to think…
I found my idea, and changed my family’s future, all because I listened to a podcast!
