I was fortunate to find my niche in the promotional advertising industry, selling B2B, over 28 years ago. And I'm more passionate about it today than I was when it was all so new and exciting to me.
It's a great industry, that the average person either is born into it through a family member or else discovers it after retirement from their life-long career.
Starting from scratch wasn't easy, especially for a sole-bread winner, but the long-term rewards were definitely worth the lean years in the beginning.
Now, my business is relatively recession and disaster-proof, having survived a direct hit from Hurricane Rita and all the economic turmoil of the past 4 years. In spite of the current conditions, I just finished my latest sales year with a 38% increase in sales and started the new year with a 25% increase for September.
I'll consider retirement in 38 years at my 97th birthday. No way do I want to quite prematurely.
And I encourage others to explore the options of what could be the best low-cost, home-based opportunity for them today!
