Having over Thirty years experience in business, I own and operate a successful land surveying firm. Land Surveying is a lucrative business, but because it is directly dependent on the real estate market it has its ups and downs. With the collapse of the housing market in 2008 it was certainly the worst down I had ever experienced in my business career. I ran through my life savings just trying to keep afloat. It got to the point of being on the verge of losing everything I had worked my entire career to build. Needless to say, it was a little depressing (wallowing in self-pity might be a more accurate description).
I quickly realized my attitude wasn’t helping the situation, so I just took a step back and began to think a little differently.
First, I began to look at what I had to work with. Luckily, and ultimately this is what saved me, several years prior to 2008 I had acquired my professional license in several of my surrounding states. Up until this point I hadn’t used them, but I had thought that maybe I could expand my boundaries a bit and it seemed this was the perfect opportunity for that. So, I began to look for opportunities and what I found was an opportunity that had serious potential.
I found was several companies that dealt with large multi-site transactions for corporations that were liquidating properties. There were several potential negatives with this. I would have to travel, I had never worked with any of these companies, and these jobs required a very demanding turn-around time. If I had viewed these as negatives I would have never followed through and ultimately would have lost everything. Rather, I chose to view these in a positive light. (They were just bumps in the road. I’ll make it work.) My mindset was that I knew I was going to succeed and I never even considered failure.
To make a long story short, I was able to get my foot in the door with one of these companies by identifying a problem and providing a solution. The problem; If they had a client with a chain of 30 restaurants across 5 states, they had to contract 25-30 surveyors to handle the work. That’s a lot of coordination. What if they could contract 1 surveyor to do all of the work. With persistence, it worked and rest is history.
The summer of 2008 was the worst time of my business life, but by the summer of 2009 I had re-built my business stronger and more profitable than ever. In July of 2009 I was awarded surveyor of the month (this company contracts surveyor in all 50 states, so that was big) and I was given award again in October. I have since won many of the awards and become the go-to guy in the Southeastern U.S. and I did all of this in a very bad economy.
How I got into internet marketing.
After 2008 I wanted to make sure I had something going on the side to fall back on if the economy decided to wipe out my new business model (I learned that you need to be prepared for anything). So, I chose internet marketing as that vehicle. I began educating myself and the more I learned, the more potential I saw. My business sense told me that the potential in internet marketing was incredible. If fact, it has caused me to completely modify my plan. Internet marketing has become my primary endeavor with the goal of phasing out my surveying business.
So, guys that’s my story. I want to share my business expertise with you to help you lay that solid foundation for your internet business and help you propel it to the next level. If your ready to commit to building your business, I’m here to help. This is your time guys! Let me help you make the most of it!
My story of how I got started in internet marketing is a rather interesting one. I went to college and received my BS in Exercise Science with dreams of becoming established in the Fitness and Strength & Conditioning industry. I was an accomplished powerlifter and fascinated with the idea of how you could manipulate the body through training to improve performance. I knew that I wanted to train athletes.
After college, I moved back to my home state and started my journey as a personal trainer. I learned real quick that the personal training world is a tough one and is highly dependent on job location. I was not in a great location and for this reason I struggled to make ends meet. On top of that, I had just gotten married and my work hours were completely opposite of my wife’s. I knew that I had to make some changes. I searched for job openings in my industry and had a few interviews but nothing came from this. It was obvious that I was going to have to do something different.
I took a job at my father’s land surveying company and that’s when he opened my eyes to the possibilities of beginning a business online. Needless to say, I knew NOTHING about internet marketing or the internet for that matter but I did see the potential in what it could be. The internet is massive and it’s only growing. I saw that there was a real chance that I could make an income online that paid my bills and allowed me to spend more time with my wife and be my own boss.
After months and months of educating ourselves, we created The Market Men with the goal of helping real people, just like us, build their business and make real money online.
