A transformation take place as I share my own personal story with you, on my journey from a hard-working employee to online entrepreneur.
My name is Michael Pruiksma from Ocean City, Maryland.
I’m 32, soon to be 33 in February.
I live by the beach and drive a soft top Jeep Wrangler.
I had a bunch of little jobs as a kid, mowing grass, cleaning dirty trays at a green house in the hot summer to cleaning up crap at a small horse farm.
My first full-time job was working on a golf course with my uncle Bill doing course maintenance.
I realized pretty quick that working really hard for a little bit of money sucked.
Everyone kept telling me, if I wanted to make more money and be successful, I needed to go back to school to get a degree, so I can get a better job and make more money.
So I went on to learn how to operate heavy equipment such as excavators, bull dozers, bucket loaders and all the other construction equipment. I also learned how to drive a 18 wheeler and came home with my class A CDL License.
When I left the golf course, I was earning a tad over $7 per hour.
After I returned from the national heavy equipment operator school in Florida. Just two days later, I landed a job operating excavation equipment and started out at $14.50 per hour.
I doubled my income in less than a year.
I had the willingness and determination to make it happen and improve my future.
A little less than 5 years later, I was earning close to $30 per hour, doing what I loved to do.
Loading big rocks into rock crushers and turning them into small rocks.
Then all of a sudden, I lost my job during the economy collapse back in 2007.
That tore me apart and dramatically change my life.
After months of endlessly searching for a heavy equipment operator job, like I just lost.
My bank account was empty and the bills continued to pile up.
I did not know how to get money and pay my bills than work at a job for a paycheck or sell my personal belongings.
About 4 months, I finely ended up finding a lawn care job starting at $10 per hour.
I was grateful I found a job but It sucked…
I was working three times as hard for a third of the pay.
I actually ended up staying at that job for 8 years.
But back in 2012.
I started searching the internet looking for ways to make some extra income to help pay off my debt and get caught back up.
What a journey it has been.
Now I want to share with you what I learned over the years of being an online entrepreneur.
New ideas and philosophies that just may help you, break free from the chains of mediocrity and start living the life you deserve.
Becoming an entrepreneur was the best decision I have ever made and here is why.
I have learned a lot over the years from many of the mentor I had.
One thing really stuck out to me and that was this quote by Jim Rohn.
Profits and better than wages.
Working at a job will earn you a living, while earning profits will make you a fortune.
I didn’t really understand that at first but now I do and I want to explain it to you.
When you work at a job, you trade your time for money.
You can only earn so much money in a day, week, month and year.
Basically you’re just trading your time for a paycheck and helping the owner of the company you work build their dreams.
I love this video by Jim Rohn, titled getting rich is easy.
One of the best benefits of being an entrepreneur is leverage.
Let me explain.
What is the difference between the employee that earn $500 per week and the entrepreneur that earn $5,000 per week?
They both have the same amount of time and put in about the same amount of work.
The difference is leverage.
When you are and employee and when you stop working, you stop getting paid.
When you are an entrepreneur you can set up systems and resources that work for you 24-7, generating your business, leads and sales.
For instance let talk about my online business.
The way I earn money is by selling products.
But the awesome part is, I found a way to leverage the internet with a simple website that targets the right people at the right time and when they purchase the product I am promoting, I earn a commission virtually hands free 24-7.
I spend 2-3 hours a day, creating content that targets highly qualified prospects that will be on the internet working for me 24/7 if I am working or relaxing on the beach or sleeping.
Plus I can literally work from anywhere in the world as long as I have an internet connection.
Since I am my own boss, I can work when I want for as long as I want.
I am also going to be the first to say that becoming an entrepreneur isn’t all rainbows and butterfly.
It does talk a lot of work to build a profitable business.
I love this analogy…
Being an entrepreneur is like driving an airplane.
When you first start out down the run way, you need to give it full throttle to take off and gain altitude.
If you don’t give it 100% you are going to crash at the end of the run way.
But after you take off and gain altitude, you can pull back on the throttle and enjoy the ride.
You need to put in the work and build a business today so you can enjoy the fruits of you labor, later on.
How I became an online entrepreneur
I literally started my own home-based internet business in my spare-time after working at my full-time job.
After I worked all day and all my chores were done I fired up my laptop computer, kicked my feet up in my lazy boy recliner and went to work on building my own home-based internet business.
All I did was turn off the TV and focused on what was more important.
I turned my spare-time into building my business.
Yeah some days I fell asleep and didn’t get too much done, but I kept pushing forward.
I discovered short cut and a simple online system that showed me what to do and how to do it.
After a few months of putting in persistent and constant work, I went from zero to making more money in my spare time than I did at my full-time job.
Then I went on to earn more in one day online, that I would have working over 100 hours at my job.
It was life changing for me.
I had the extra money to pay my bills and get out of debt.
I had more money to buy the things I really wanted and not just what I could have afford.
That lead to relieving a lot of the financial stress that has been building up over the years.
Now I am happier, healthier and wealthier than ever before.
Now my mission is to help hundreds if not thousands of people like you, get to the place I am at today.
Yes there is going to be work involved.
Yes there is going to be challenging times where you doubt yourself.
Yes you are going to have to invest money to start your own home-based business.
Yes you are going to encounter problems and challenges, but if you stick with it and no give up, you can live your dream lifestyle too.
As they say…
If you are ready for a change and are ready to improve your life and future, there is no better time to start than today.
The sooner you get started, the sooner you will learn what you need to know to become a successful entrepreneur and build a business and a life of your dreams.
If you are committed and ready, the next step will be to check out this new simple system, that is taking the internet by storm and helping thousands of people, just like you, live a life they deserve.

This is my own personal story and how I literally went from some of the worst times of my life to some of the best times.
If I talk about the money I make and rewards I earn, I just want to be upfront with you and tell you this is not a guarantee of income.
I just want to show you what is possible…
Heck, you can make more than me, or you can earn less than me.
It’s all up to you.
Below, I am going to share some personal pictures and information I learned about becoming an online entrepreneur.
So I think it is necessary to first introduce myself to you.
My name is Michael, I’m 32 and live 15min away from Ocean City Maryland.
I drive a jeep wrangler and work full-time as a landscaper.
Here is a picture of myself posing for a selfie.
Let me first say that I am just your ordinary hard-working guy.
Everyone was telling me, if I wanted to make money and be happy, I was going to have to go back to school to get a degree, to get a better job to make more money.
That is what I did.
I went from working at a Golf course for $7 per hour to operating heavy equipment starting at $17.50 per hour and after 5 years, I was crushing rocks earning close to $30 per hour.
Then the 2007 economy collapse left me with out a job for about 4 months.
I finely found a new job, but I had to take a BIG hit. I went from $30 per hour down to $10 per hour at my new lawn care job.
After about 8 years of hard work and dedication, I found they were ripping me off so I quit.
It is really hard to put my future in the hands of someone else.
I was just sick and tired of working so hard for so little.
At the end of a work day, I was in the office doing my paper work and adding up how much I earned the company and over heard a private meeting.
What I heard chanced my life.
They were a franchised lawn care company, so the owner didn’t know too much about advertising. In the agreement the franchise needs to invest a percent of their income for adverting to grow their business.
They were going to invest $30k in post cards.
When I heard that, something just inside of me snapped.
I was working my ass off 8-10 hours a day and barely made $25k a year and they are giving 30k to a guy to print out post cards and put a stamp on them.
That blew my mind.
All I knew is I needed to learn a new skill to make money and live a great life than just living paycheck to paycheck excited about going to happy hour and relaxing at the beach when I had free time.
I have tried a bunch of ways to make money online from, free automated systems, affiliate marketing, bugging my friends and family and network marketing.
Since 2012 I have discovered my own way to generate multiple streams of income, virtually hands free with a simple website.
Each and every day is a learning process and not everything goes the way you always want it to go.
You can let the little set back and screw ups make you bitter or they can make you better.
It would have been easier to sit home and bitch and complain about how much my job and life sucks and have a little petty party at the bar.
But do you know what…
I didn’t do what was necessarily easy to do, but I did what I needed to do and what was right.
After working all day, I go home get my stuff done, eat, take a shower and spend about 2-3 hours a night working on my home based internet business.
I didn’t see much action in the beginning, I felt like it was a waste of time and money.
After I really learned how everything works and how to target the right people at the right time, my business starting booming for the first time.
When I talk about booming, I mean my online business earned more while I was sleeping than I could earn working 12 hours at my job.
Then I started increasing my goals and before I knew it, I was making more in one day online than I could make working a week at my full-time job.
But it gets better.
I made more in one week online in my spare time than I could earn working a month at my full-time job.
Now my goal is to is to make $30k in a month.
That might seem over the top, but I am going to do it.
I want to prove to myself I can do it.
Now I want to prove to you, that you can do whatever you set your mind to, too.
Why not get in the best shape of your life?
Why now feel the best you can feel?
Why not live the best you can live?
Why not earn as much as you can earn?
Why now be the best version of yourself you can possible be?
I mean it’s your life.
The last time I checked, no one gets out alive.
Why not live the and be the best you can.
The money is good, but all the other rewards are priceless.
More time flexibility to more of the things you want, when you want.
More income to get out of debt and build a financial wall around your family noting can get through.
Luxury Get A ways such as the epic dinner in Times Square NYC for being a top promoter in a special contest.
Treated like luxury all weekend.
Picked up from the airport, dropped off at the hotel right in Times Square and had an epic dinner with the best view in Times Square ever.
It was such a good feeling inside to receive a reward like that for working hard and promoting their product.
At the lawn care job it was awesome when the boss brought you out for a beer, my home based business I have dinner in Times Square.
I never would have thought it was possible for a guy like me that had no prior experience but mowing grass and planting flowers.
If I can do it, I know you can.
You just need directions, game plan and a team.
But first you need to ponder these 4 questions…
Videos like these give me goose bumps and make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
This is just one of my favorite videos that really get me excited and pumped up.
As we are nearing the end of this post, I want you to think about a few things.
Mostly what I want you to do is look back a few months and see what areas of your life needs improving.
Your health, relationships, finances or happiness?
Imagine what your life would be like when you are in the best shape of your life making more money and having more time and financial freedom to do more of the things you want to do and less time doing the things you don’t.
You have a choice to live your life of your dreams or your nightmares.
What are you going to choose?
If you are here, I have a pretty good feeling you want to improve your life, health, wealth and happiness.
Now let’s get your life pointed in the right direction.
The very first thing I recommend doing is watching our live team webinar, coming up here really soon.
There are BIG things happening and you need to see what they are.
