I keep wondering...

I keep wondering why more people don't do what I am doing.

I have no boss other than myself.

I set my own work hours and efforts and therefore how much money I make.

I have an unlimited income potential, meaning there is no limit or pay scale to hold me back.

I have unlimited training and personal assistance available to me for the asking whenever I want.

I truly believe in my business and every single product that I help distribute all over North America.

I truly believe those products make the world a better place to live.

I receive free tools to help me with my business that others may pay really big dollar amounts to get.

I can take time off whenever I want.

I have no quotas to meet or goals to hit other than those I set for myself.

I am not at the mercy or whim of someone who doesn't even know my name.

I receive a cash bonus monthly if my efforts earn it, not yearly like it used to be and only then if someone thought I deserve it.

I can take a holiday whenever I want and not just when it's convenient for someone else.

I can earn free merchandise or even qualify for all-expense-paid trips to locations all around the world.

I get to help others live the same life I am living.

I make a difference for them, if they are serious about wanting it.

I still show the ones who are not so serious how to make money even when they take days off.

I can do what I want, when I want, how I want, every day of the year.

I am in control of my life.

I HAVE made a difference for others.

I keep wondering why more people don't ask me how to do what I am doing.

Will you?

I took this one a couple mornings ago at the Wikwemikong Marina.  Something about the fog, mist and contrasts created by the low light levels appealed to me.

The free trip from Watkins for 2012 is to the FireSky Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Other years the all expense paid trips have been to such locations as Hawaii, Ireland, Spain, Mexico, Belize... you get the idea.

Watkins spares no expense in rewarding the Consultants who meet certain achievement levels.  The best thing of all is that any Consultant can reach these levels with a little consistent effort.

Ask me how or take the tour at today.
