You, the audience without whom the entertainer wouldn’t function. You, the prospects who the home business owner is helping to grow your organization and achieve your dreams so they can in turn build their own business. The simple fact is that it’s YOU, the people who are the common denominator for both the entertainer and the home business owner. Without you we are all stuck!

I’ve been asked many times by people “what motivates you to get up in the morning?” There have been several answers based on the time of my life and the type of work I was doing. Sometimes it was due to the fact that I would get more done and earn more money, or because I always get more done in the morning and so it’s better to get up and out to work or maybe it was just because of a weak bladder! Now I am driven to get up, not just for the purpose of business, but to help others to have success too.
