Firefighting taught Mark the importance of mindset, but wasn't his dream job like he thought it would be. He cared more about his health and well-being than his job.
Mark's sister gave him a book written by Robert Kiyosaki and that book changed his outlook on life and career. It reminded him of his passions and wanting to be his own boss, and then he found the SFM community.
Barbara not only helps to run their baby clothing line and their affiliate marketing business with the SFM, but she also teaches kids to sew and plans to grow that business by marketing it online.
They discuss a few of the mistakes they made and share what they learned and what they would do differently if they were to start all over again today.
The SFM's training has not only helped them to develop their own brand, but now they know how to import products from China, put their label on them, and then sell those products as their own!
The training turned out to be much more than that, though. The self-development taught literally changed Barbara's life. She's gone from being someone who's afraid of talking to strangers, to getting up on stage to share what she's learned with others.
The training even helped Barbara heal her relationship with her mom. Going into business for themselves online is completely changing their lives and they're stoked to share what they're learning with you!
I'm here to help you, along with Mark and Barbara and the rest of those in our online community.

Freedom Through Digital Education
Our core value is this - we want to help anyone who has the courage to step out of the status quo (your financial security in the hands of an employer) and drive into creating life on their own terms. All you'll need is a working computer, a decent internet connection and the commitment to learn the skills that will set you free. We help each other and if you're hoping to find a community of people who can show you, how to work for yourself, you've found it!
Most of our community members were working to build someone else's business and someone else's dreams, but decided that life is too short. We all had "a-ha" moments and decided to recreate our lives by starting online businesses in our spare time. Join us and protect your income!
Meet Stuart Ross, SFM Co-Founder and Your Guide
"Welcome! I started my journey into the digital and entrepreneurial world with nothing more than perseverance, a laptop and a dream.
To date, I’ve created a multi-million dollar lifestyle business in the education and technology industry that I absolutely LOVE. My driving passion is sharing the know-how and mindset that lets others feel the same way.
The reason they call me The Freedom Entrepreneur is because I refused to accept the constraints of traditional employment. Having successfully found a better route, I’m committed to showing others how to live life on their own terms too."
Stuart and his team have helped thousands of people who want to be self-employed from the comfort of their computers, but don't know how. The SFM's Digital Business System and community are one of the fastest ways to get you from where you are, to where you want to be.
Four Principles To Create Your Best Life
PRINCIPLE #1 KNOW YOUR VISION
Stuart talks about vision moments. My 'vision' moment happened while on vacation with my kids. I realized that we'd made very few memories as a family, because of health issues that have prevented me from doing much travel, and because my career has me working weekends.
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 SFM will show you how to use the internet as a tool to support yourself from any location. The return on your investment is the ability to earn income, no matter what the economy is doing. Unlike traditional education, you'll have passion for what you're learning!
PRINCIPLE #3 DO THE WORK
Find someone who has what you want and do what they did! I live by this principle in every aspect of my life. Find someone who’s willing to teach, who's been there and done what you'e looking to do, and follow their lead.
My top goal is lifestyle freedom and knowing that the internet makes that possible, I tried to build several online businesses early on, without a guide, and failed. Then I found the SFM. Their experience and coaching allowed me to avoid expensive mistakes and succeed the second time around. They've made me into a successful online entrepreneur!
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.
One of my main values is family. 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?
