Have you ever known someone who was addicted to drugs or alcohol? I am a recovered addict myself and have lost several friends. It's a situation that either makes you or breaks you. It turned out to be the start of my spiritual journey and was perhaps the best thing that ever happened to me.
My addiction to drugs and alcohol was replaced with an addiction to figuring out who the hell I am and how the hell I fit into things.
Recently abandoned by his wife, rob and his 3 kids were forced to figure it out as he was being crushed by the crisis of his own drug and alcohol addiction. He found a life-sciences sales job to cover the bills, but knew the pressure was going to kill him and his kids needed him.
He got into recovery and spirituality, and completely turned his life around. Rob became a student of the law of attraction, so when the SFM came across his path, he knew the Universe was opening a door for him.
In no time at all, Rob quit his sales job to work for himself online. He is a Warrior dad and I'm excited to introduce you!

Rob had been working for 10 years as a scientist with his PhD and was unfulfilled. After his son was born and his son's mom skipped town, he went into corporate life-science sales. It gave him more money and flexibility, but it opened him up to seeing that something was deeply wrong inside.
He wasn't happy and began to drink more and do drugs.
Fortunately, his family intervened and he went into recovery and a 12-step program. It changed his life because he became aware of his thoughts, mindset and the negative way he perceived the world. Rob says that he really started looking inward for answers to life's problems.
When life settled back down he realized that he had to get back to work and interviewed for a few sales jobs, but knew that wasn't his path and that it would lead back to drug and alcohol abuse.
He then ran across the SFM online and knew right away that it was his path. The more he looked into it, the more he saw that it was a legitimate path and he broke down crying because he was so happy.
The self-development was something he was thrilled to pursue. He sold his house, paid off his debt and used what was left over to start his online business and career.
Rob realized that life is short and that it makes no sense to trade time for money doing something he didn't enjoy.
Now, he's coaching others and enjoying every day. People in the community sees him learn, do, and then teach and he's become a leader.
Rob was scared to change. We all are, but I hope our conversation shows you that you're not alone on your journey toward a better life.
I'm here to help you, along with Rob and the rest of those in our online community. Click here to receive the video series that got Rob started with his online journey.

Four Principles To Create Your Best Life
PRINCIPLE #1 KNOW YOUR VISION
Stuart talks about vision moments. My girls screamed with delight, as they touched snow for the very first time and like a light switch, I instantly realized that no job was worth missing my kids' childhood and making quality memories together. That's the vision that keeps me motivated. I'm putting the effort in now, so I have free time and extra money to make memories with my wife and kids for many years to come.
PRINCIPLE #2 INVEST IN YOURSELF
"Every day I make sure that in some capacity, I'm investing in myself. Unlike school, as a self-learner, you get to choose the areas you're enthusiastic about and you get to choose the people that you're learning from." The most important investment I've ever made has been in me and my education, not a 401k. The return on your investment is the ability to earn income, no matter what the economy is doing.
PRINCIPLE #3 DO THE WORK
Find someone who has what you want and do what they did! Find someone who’s willing to teach, who's been there and done what you'e looking to do, and follow their lead. I tried to build several online businesses early on, without a guide, and failed. Then I found the SFM and their guidance allowed me to succeed. It's designed to help anyone go into business for themselves online.
PRINCIPLE #4 KNOW YOUR VALUES
If you don't know your values, then it's time to uncover and illuminate them. Then, everything else you do will be aligned with your values. I decided to make a change and learn the skills necessary to be self-employed online, so that I'm always available to make memories with my wife and kids. God, integrity, loyalty, having fun, and passion are a few other values I hold dear. What values drive your daily actions?
