My name is George Kerr; I live in beautiful Toronto, Ontario Canada with my wife and children. I came to Canada along with my parents more than forty years ago from Kingston Jamaica, I believed in my parents’ eyes, they had a vision of a better life and so they rooted up stakes and set sights for Canada.
Both my high school and my college education were done in Canada. I was top Chemistry student in high school and Top Civil Engineering student Class of 83.
Toronto, just to let you know, Canada is countries of extremes when it comes to the weather, when it is hot it is very hot and when it is old it is brutal. In the Toronto area while we may not always experience the full extremes of the weather but there are occasions when one would wonder.
Why? Why in the world anyone would give up year round warmth and comfort for the extremes of the environment we live in. But it was because my parents realize the opportunities are far a better than the challenges we would face living in immigrating to Canada.
In my career as a Civil Technologist I worked in Materials Engineering department of a few Construction and Materials Companies. These companies ranged from small family owned to multinational Oil conglomerates.
In all of this there was one true constant; I knew I had to have my own business to build.
So while it was intriguing to participate in research and development of various construction products I just was not satisfied, but I didn’t know what to do, or I was just not motivated enough to start looking for a solution.
It was not until later on in my career I ventured with into business ownership where I had a minor share in a Paving Materials company. The experience taught me some valid lessons, because it was then I realized what I that ignorance had blinded me to the point that I shut myself off from finding any real solutions. I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
This was the wakeup call came; it was while being an owner/operator of a real company which meant putting in long hours with very few rewards especially when things are not done well.
Also being in business partnership with anyone who does not understand the fundamentals of business made it an absolutely horrible experience, it was just the jolt I needed to cause something deep within to start yearning for true change.
This was when I came across the first opportunity in the multi-level marketing opportunity.
The idea of leverage appealed to me immensely, it caused me to examine more closely the MLM business model. It was a real eye opener; all my assumptions about this type of marketing was completely wrong, and once I gained a more complete understanding of the business model I realized, that the people in network marketing were enjoying the lifestyle that I could only dreams of.
Even though I knew all this I still did not take it serious enough.
So here is what happened:
The paving business did not work and neither did my first network marketing venture, in fact things went from back to worst when my family and I experience real financial hardship culminating with the lost of our family home in 2009.
This is where I realize truly I have to do something other than the regular nine to five gig and I must get away from the JOB mentality.
I also knew it was only for a moment and that God will never give you more than you can bear.
Today my understanding is even more enhanced because I have seen in the Network Marketing space where things can change so significantly that your entire downline is wiped out.
This experience happened in a business I was involved in just three years ago, so I began to realize the better business model is where you have true ownership of the product.
Why? Because if your business can be affected by outside influences, to where even the product no longer exist. This I know can say is a recipe for disaster.
And while it can be said that we cannot make any absolute this declarations about the business environment on a whole, it is a far better model when you are in the driver’s seat.
It now March 2015, and since 2009 when my circumstances forced me to take Online Marketing more seriously me I have not found THE SUCCESS FORMULA, but I am convinced that these steps I have taken with the Partnership to success is a step in the right direction.
Together to the Top
