I have to give props to the person who shared this video in our Facebook Group (join here!), Robbie Becklund. I am a HUGE Eric Thomas fan and if you are not familiar with him, here is his YouTube channel.
What Is Your Why?
I have watched and listened to this video and few times and it really has got me thinking. Now, I posted a blog post the other day discussing why I got into this business and here were my answers;
- I love the Internet
- Have always been a fan of marketing
- Always been a dream to own my own company
- Was sick and tired of “working for the man”
- I love working from home
- I can help my local community
I guess I have more than one “why” and I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.
What is your why?

UPDATE: A reader called me out on this, and rightfully so. I had listed selfish reasons of why and it really got me thinking. I just blasted out this blog pot without putting more thought into it. I apologize.
Here is my why;
It’s always my ultimate goal when talking to clients and I tell them,
I want you to call me in 6-8 months and tell me you had to hire an employee (s) because of all the extra business I brought in
I honestly tell them that.
I live in Las Vegas where the economy took a hit, a bad one. I was out of work for 1 year and experienced the troubles of unemployment. I hated it. I want to create jobs for people. I want to indirectly help my clients business, and in turn, they have to hire more people. This will allow these new employees to put food on their table, get school supplies for their kids and enjoy life. I’ll never meet these people and that is why I said “indirectly”. I think that’s the best part, I’m helping them without them knowing.
Also, since I found success and, I too, was a struggling-buy-every-WSO-imaginable-Warrior-Forum-lurker, I created a Facebook Group and do weekly Spreecasts of Q & A. I treat people how I want to be treated.
I tell people at the live events what I am doing and they all say, “you’re leaving money on the table” I’m not doing it to make money (sure I do make $ with affiliates), but I do it because I truly want to help.
Getting an email/message/phone call from someone saying they landed their first client is one of the best feelings in the World, no amount of money can touch that.
