It took longer to “launch” me than anticipated.
It took a while for me to get my first (and last) paycheck from that phone job I didn’t want. This was on purpose.
There was a big conference in Denver at the end of July. My sponsor was putting pressure on me to go.
I didn’t want to go.
I couldn’t go without a ticket. I couldn’t get a ticket until I had “launched.” And I couldn’t “launch” until I got that paycheck.
So, rather than go in to pick it up, I waited for them to mail it.
It took even longer than I had anticipated. I didn’t get it until after the conference ended.
I met my sponsor at the coffee shop on August 2. We did some initial set up. I set up my Amway “Independent Business Owner” account, listing him as my sponsor. I ordered some samples as part of the signup process.
I set up an account with WorldWide. I signed up for their voicemail service, CommuniKate.
A week later we met again to finish setting up my Amway store and finish the signup process.
All this set me back $280.
But it was worth it.
I was finally my own boss.
Or so I thought.
