Happy Birthday to CFA!

Happy Birthday to CFA

A few hours ago I posted this message on my social media profiles; Feels good to have added an extra year…. Twenty years (50) from now I will be more disappointed by the things that I didnt do than by the ones I did do. So I ll throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in my sails. Explore, Dream, Discover ~ Mark Twain

This is indeed one of my favourite quotes and I love it for one main reason – it tries to break off the shackles of limitations, fear, poverty, comfort zone syndrome and aligns you with who you truly are (this is my personal interpretation of this timeless quote).

Happy birthday to CFA

Happy Birthday to CFA!!! Exactly 31 years ago, I was born into a modest, loving family at Kiri-Kiri Town, Lagos, Nigeria from then on I have lived my life with one purpose and that is doing good and adding continuous value . So many people have helped shape my life and thought process – too numerous to mention, starting with the greatest parents on earth who gave me a solid foundation, my wonderful wife, siblings, children, relatives, friends, inspiring mentors particularly Robert Butwin, the team at Natureline Solutions and FATE Foundation, not forgetting all my friends and acquaintances on the various social media networks. Words are inadequate to express how grateful I am, I will sum it up in these words – Thank You.

I honestly feel blessed, so much has happened in my few years on earth. I am excited that I have grown and learnt so much, I have started so many business and failed (I have just started a new business recently, the business I’m in clearly may not be for you, but who do you know that is ambitious, money motivated and would be excited about the idea of adding more cash flow to their lives? I will be glad if you can connect them to me.) I am humbled to be a leader to a few, I  am particularly grateful for the wonderful family God gave me.  My life is sold out to one cause and that is making a difference in my little sphere and ultimately leaving my footsteps in the sands of time, I have decided I won’t be one of those who die unsung. Haven’t you heard these words; the graveyard is the wealthiest place? Come to think of it, isn’t it true? Can you imagine how many people have died with their great dreams and plans because of fear?

I have consciously chosen to be one of those Nigerians committed to being different, and prove to the outside world that despite the corruption, advancement fee fraud (419), insecurity, injustice, crime, under-development, criminal enrichment of a few, religious bigotry etc. there are still good, great, genuine, wonderful and enterprising people here – it will not be an easy task but attainable. Nigeria will be great again! Start playing a role in your little way.

My sincere wish for you on this very special day of mine is that you throw off the bowlines, sail away from the sail harbor. Catch the trade winds…. Explore….. Dream…. Discover….. Its time to live the life you deserve and start doing things you thought were impossible.

Let me if there is anyway I can be of service to you???

I love you all!

Once Again, happy Birthday to CFA!!!

The Inspring Story of Robert Butwin

Introducing Robert Butwin……

The inspiring story you are about to read is that of a great networker who discovered his passion after many years of being in business and followed it. His name is Robert Butwin – my friend and Mentor. Robert Butwin has been so successful in network marketing that he has trimmed his work schedule to just three hours a day, he plays basketball five times a week and most importantly he still enjoys his business.

How the Robert Butwin adventure all started

robert butwinRead on…… Robert Butwin grew up in his family’s business with every expectation of someday running the show.  After all, his family founded the high school award cheerleading jacket business, which was in its third generation in an ever expanding market and Robert was the oldest son!  Robert’s future seemed certain as he worked in the business part time throughout college, and then joined full time upon graduation with a business degree.

But like most best laid plans, reality intruded on the blueprint for Robert’s success and his inspiring story. First of all, there was too much family in the family business! Second, Robert was repelled by the corporate politics which he knew existed in most businesses.  And third – which proved to be the deal breaker – Robert did not want to be ruled by the expectations of others. He wanted to break free of the dictates about when he had to work, how long he had to work and when he could take time off.

Robert Butwin was fortunate to recognize early on that there had to be a better way; he wanted to earn money to live the lifestyle that he knew was possible without having other people’s rules etched in his soul.  In October 1984, he got involved in a home-based business with the intention of being able to replace his income from his job at the family business within 3 to 5 years. While Robert learned a lot about business on his own, he also incurred a bit of debt which derailed the “better way” he had envisioned.

But as those who know Robert Butwin know—he’s not a man who gives up on his own or other people’s dreams easily. Despite the setback, Robert never lost sight of his vision of what it would be like to live life on his own terms.  He knew what his terms were: not to have to worry about money – being able to wake up when he wanted and not tied to the call of an electronic rooster – taking a 30-step walk to his office to begin his day and playing basketball – his passion even now – on a regular basis.  In his mind’s eye he knew his future involved world travel and making positive differences in the lives of those he came in contact with.

Robert Butwin took a big step toward making his vision a reality on September 7, 1990. On that day, Robert left the family business forever and began to focus 100% on helping others accomplish the financial freedom he enjoyed.  Like many who have taken that giant leap, it wasn’t easy for Robert in the beginning.  But he was determined, and that determination paid off.  From his third year on, he has never earned less than $100, 000 per year, but has earned upwards of a million dollars!  Robert now shares his wisdom as a mentor, speaker and communicator to those who, like him, want to live life by their own rules and have the financial security he enjoys.

Robert has twice been honored for his industry contributions by being named Networker of the year from the MLMIA. He is often invited to speak at network marketing and internet marketing industry events – – always with the intent of reaching as many people and businesses as he can – so they too can succeed as he has.  In 2008 and 2009, Robert served as the Chairman of the Elite Network Marketing Congress in Singapore, showcasing the global reach of Robert’s mission.

Robert Butwin is a natural coach and author of the book Street Smart Networking, first published in 1994 to share his success secrets with others.  Street Smart Networking is a no-nonsense guide on how you can live the most richly rewarding lifestyle you can possibly imagine. Buy this book from Amazon or contact me to get it locally. This book teaches you more than just being a Networker, it covers all area of life so it is a must read.

This is one of the many inspiring stories that will inspire and propel you to find your passion and follow it. More to come…….
