About Michael

Hello there,

My name is Michael Pruiksma and since 2012 I have been on a mission to improve my lifestyle.

Here is a picture of my wife (Julia) and I relaxing on the beach in Punta Cana livin’ it up.

…But my life was not all rainbows and butterfly’s.

Before 2012 I was your typical “Lawn Boy”.

I worked at a lawn care company fertilizing lawns, mowing grass and planting flowers for 10-14 hours a day in the hot summer sun making about $12 per hour.

After doing that for about 8 years, I just became burnt out of doing the same thing, day after day until I became sick and tired of always being sick and tired.

I thought the only way my life was ever going to improve for me is if I won the lottery. (that never happened)

Everyday I would hope, wish and pray my life would get better, but it never did.

Life doesn’t get better by chance, it will only get better by change.

After work I would frequently visit the local watering hole (bar) and hope drinking would flush away my problems, but it only made them worse.

I learned the hard way and it took me a while to wake up and realize…

If I continued to do the things I have always done, I was only going to continue to get what I always got.

If things were ever going to change for me, I was the one that needed to make a change.

For me the change happened on 5-31-2012 when I was at work and over heard a conversation of the owners of the lawn care company I worked for.

Since the company was a franchise, every year they had to spend a certain amount of money on advertising to get more business to grown the company.

I heard that they had to spend $30,000 on advertising to send out flyers in the mail.

What really pissed me off was that I was the one that was out there busting my ass day after day and I barely make $25,000 a year and they just wrote out a check for 30 grand to some guy that printed out flyers, put a stamp on them and drop them off at the post office.

That was the day that opened my mind and changed my life.

I was working harder, not smarter.

Then I started thinking of different ways to make money than busting my ass for someone who doesn’t even care about me as long as I am out there making them money.

I started thinking BIGGER.

What if I could make $30 grand for a weeks worth of work?

So after work I would skip the bar, come straight home and began searching the internet and typing in things like, how to make money without working at a job.

I had no idea what I was looking for all I knew is that I needed to do something to generate an income so I can quit that job.

That is how I discovered I can start making money online, but it wasn’t as easy as I thought at first because I had no idea what to do or how to do it.

One thing lead to the next and after months of trying I finely make my first $20 online.

It felt like a million to me at first and I was so excited.

Once I made that first $20 I knew it was possible to make more.

I tried just about every opportunity to make money online back then. Most of the opportunities I lost more money than I made but I learned something from all of them.

I am going to call them failures, I will just call them lessons learned.

After trying, trying and trying again I finely had a breakthrough and went on to make $1,000 in a day, until that company went out of business.

Then I joined another one and made even more.

That’s $2,796 in one week.

That year I sold over $135,000 in products in 2017.

Then that company updated there rules and could no longer promote their products online. They wanted you go out and bug your friends and family and that was not what I wanted to do.

When one door closes another one opens.

I then moved on to bigger and better things which brings me to now.

Now I leverage a system that automates 90% of work for me and make more money doing less work.

If you want to check out the system I use now to earn high ticket commissions click the button below to learn more and check it out for yourself.

So in a nut shell that is my story and how I got to where I am today.

I am not where I want to be yet, but I am closer than I was yesterday.

I hope my story inspires you to take the steps to improve and upgrade your life.

If your not were you want to be in life, only YOU can change it.

If you need help reach out and contact me, let’s create a plan to improve your life and reach your goals.

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they will have planed for you? NOT MUCH!

The past is history, the future is a mystery and right now is a gift that is why it’s called the present.

Make small daily improvements each day.

Just think if you only get 1% better each day in a year you will be 365% better.

If not now, then when?

If I could do it, I know you can too.

Before you go I want to share with you one of my favorite videos that made a HUGE impact on my life.

…but let me give you a fair warning, every time I watch it, it brings tears to my eyes.

Let’s make the rest of your life, the best of your life.

Please feel free to leave me a comment below, I would really appreciate it.

Cheers to new beginnings and a bigger and brighter future.

    Michael,
    Thank you very, very much for your encouragement, advice & the tools! You pulled me out of my fluster the other day! I especially appreciate the fact that you….YOU…. took the time to help me in this desperate time of need! I am trying, and just getting started. This is going to be a process, as you said. I have HOPE now. I just got to figure out how to use my personal, painful past, and current life, in my blog, and THAT is where I am going to have trouble. I am continuing to go through our conversation, to go through every single detail. I have got to get out of this hole and FAST. I am nervous but I do know that this is going to help me. Now, to figure how to blog….. What to say….. Uggh…. I STILL HAVE THAT HOPE THO! THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES!!!

    Hello again Michael,
    I just read your new blog and I must say that I am very impressed and I was happy to see that you used your own story and events in your life that have brought you to where you’re at today. I will also be working on my first blog today and I have decided to use my own story as well which has brought me to where I am at today. It took a lot of thought and time to come to this decision.
    I feel that my story and painful life events are very personal and painful to re-visit, however I believe that my blog will have an impact on my readers. It’s also very important to share with others that painful events in their lives can either destroy them or make them stronger and give them a drive to really make a positive and successful change and also inspire others to do the same and to also show them that IT IS POSSIBLE!

    Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring
    Sincerely,
    Tamela Mehle
