Work With Rob
MY STORY MAY BE YOUR STORY AS WELL
GREAT TO MEET YOU, I'M ROBERT WALKER ... please call me ROB!
Have you wondered if there’s MORE to life?
That there’s something BIG out there waiting for you or you have something burning inside of you to inspire and make an impact?
That was me growing up in/ around English Bay & Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada.
I enjoyed much of the wild excitement of the ocean; forests; and rich mixture of a life around "spoiled-rich-kids" and the lifestyle-dripped-upon by their entrepreneurial parents and relatives. Both my parents were blue-collar workers – spending most of their lives teaching myself and two children workin' values vs. entrepreneurial pursuits. We never went hungry; never did we not, have a warm bed to sleep in, nor clean fresh clothes to go to school with! We always managed to have gifts for birthdays, and Christmas ... and vacations took us camping and even to Disneyland. My life was pretty dare good.
But I knew there was much more to life ... yachts, fancier foods, faster cars, and int'l travel awaited, the free! I wanted "The Lifestyle of the Rich 'n' Famous."
It gnawed at me waking up each morning to someone else's schedule and go to work on someone else's dream: being stuck in a warehouse 10 hours a day, or on a dangerous construction crew, was not the way I wanted to spend the rest of my life until retirement.
I've always enjoyed reading of successful people ... and of how they turned adversity around ... Richard Branson, Bob Proctor, and John Kalench, Tim Sales and Mary Kay fired up the juices inside me! Around 2008, I was drawn several circles on a white-board – I too was hooked on MLM. With easier concepts recognized today, Network Marketing and the "The 4 Hour Work Week" introduced by author Tim Ferris, I was too was set for life! I began to Build My Own Business ... using such practical guides & workbooks as featured on this website. Now a part of a new, more vibrant, and capable youth, entrepreneurs are more motivated than ever! A light, like that from a beacon, shines for all to see ... no matter what held you back before – does not hold you back any more.
(read it if you haven't already) After reading that book my mind and vision to what was possible completely opened up and I started to think very differently about being an Employee vs an Entrepreneur! It should be mandatory reading for pre-College or High School curriculum. Perhaps, this is a major flaw in the school system, and why home-schooled children are percentage-wise more self-employed and entrepreneurial.
The Stock Market; Wildcat Gushing Oilfields; a Sunken Treasure or remote Gold/ Silver-Mine always caught my attention: Money is important, I grant you that! For me, it was more the great benefit to humanity, the human ah, the medical cure, secret potion that would be the Win - Win - Win. I was not going to get rich from others – I was going to re-distribute "these newly-found-five-pillar" to the world! [Healthy Body; Health Mind; Health Family; Health Society; and Healthy Finances.]
A Millionaire's Road!
So as most people who catch the Network Marketing bug I thought e-z-p-z ... I got this and I'm gonna be a millionaire fast! I was out doing home business & hotel presentations several nights a week; even travelling out-of-town for my team. I many cases leaving products, as loaners for people to try! I burned up a lot-of-my-saving, livin' the dream, living on the road ... crazy work didn't matter – I was out to save-the-world!
I treated my 'Investing in the Stock Market' more of a business than Network Marketing. Hell ... I loved what I was doing, people that could not afford the products were very willing to give me great testimonials. Unfortunately ... with no business discipline ... I was broke! Temporarily, yes ... but I was now without an income! I realized too late that Network Marketing had to be treated like a business to make it work! The timing of Network Marketing coming into my life was very significant; going through a divorce and remarrying, leaving a JOB I hated, and being there with my father when he became ill, and at his side when he passed away, was truly a blessing. While with my family, I realized that however small, I still had money coming in from my Network Marketing Business.
I did return to the workforce for ten additional years – retiring with a small government/ and employees' pension in April of 2019. Re-grouped, re-tooled, and more determined than ever; I here to share my expertise 'with the world' and 'retire my wife' in the next 90-days! Or not... [We both believe strongly in a path that does not end until you do ... meaning ... we see a long & healthy life in front of us, to share with those are us, family and friends alike!] You're Richer Than You Think! Receiving everyday, for more, than we Give! Everyday is filled with Miracles – all we have to do is – Accept those Miracles.
Taking My Business With Me!
My wife and I love to travel, so our home-based business must be global. The World Wide Web; Social Media; and people are everywhere ... what a life ... WHAT A LIFESTYLE!
I'll be honest, learning the Internet side of marketing your Business is not easy but it is well worth it. It is still taking me a while to really getting the hang of HOW to make it all work. I have a strategy and I'm committed to make it work. Just to mention a few really awesome things we're working on are:
- Re-designing and rebuilding my Social Media footprints [Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, and more...]
- Video & Animation Creation (for hire)
- Re-designing and rebuilding the look and feel of my Five-Different-Niesh BLOG-websites
- Writing & Translation Services (for hire)
- Make and keeping promises are crucial to any business success ... tools allow us the power to do so
- Family is most important to one's existence – neighbourhoods next, and without Nature – tomorrow will vanish
- Give me a hammer and a saw ... and I felt empowered to recreate my corner of the world – today I'm more into design and vision
- Last, but not least, John Lennon said it best, "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."
From 2010 to Now I've been exposed to many tools and courses and the ones that I recommend if you're thinking about taking your Business Online are listed on the Tools page if you want to check them out. It's easier to learn from someone who's already been down the road that you're looking to go down!
Despite not reaching all my dreams, Who Has, I am so Blessed and Grateful for my Life? I'm 68 years Young and I'm pretty-much Free! It will take me a few years of working my Business Hard but I have something that most people don't have ... Complete Time Freedom.
I still work hard (about 4 hours a day) but I enjoy what I do more than anything and I wouldn't trade the ups and downs of owning my own Business and being an Entrepreneur for anything. I've replaces most my JOB Income where I had to trade my time for dollars for a residual paycheck that grows bigger each month and I rarely have to look at price tags.....
I've been blessed to have had the opportunity to speak on stage to tell my story and train my marketing strategies across North America. I have yet to win an Award for Recruitment Excellence or Network Marketing Achievement. I have yet to achieve 24-hours a day, 7 days a week working alongside my best friend and love of my life, my wife Caryl.
It's Great to meet you my New Friend. Let me know how I can add value to you or your Business.
