Well as promised, Humphrey came down from London yesterday to meet us for our first business planning meeting, after a 6 hour train journey to Falmouth and a 2 hour meeting he then started a 6 hour journey back to London!
For us this journey and comitment was a sign of good times ahead, this is not a wing and a prayer business this is an actual business man who wanted us to succeed in his group.
As promised Humphrey walked in just after 1 o'clock and wasted no time in questioning us on where we wanted to go, he seemed to like the answer 'To the top!' as that is what he and his wife kathy had done over the last 8 years. My main short term goal was to earn a living in the next three months (by the time our baby in born) and to be able to provide for Michelle and our baby when he or she gets here (we still dont know which it is). After having this discussion Humphrey broke the news and told us this was going to be hard work to produce the return I was after in this space of time......
.... (which was not good news!) ........
However he said he liked our attitude and that we had 3 months of hard work to be getting on with and that it was still possible to do so and less committed people had achieved this. He also reminded us that the opportunity was not a 'get rich quick' scheme but a 'get rich if you put in the hard work over time scheme'
So as a result Ive spent today producing and tweaking our website with an integrated webshop
which is now live at www.aloeplanet.co.uk, and also listing on as many free business directories I could find online.
I quite like the idea of a 'get rich if you put in the hard work over time scheme' and not so much a 'get rich quick scheme' In a nutshell this maybe what we are looking for and we like the thought of the hard work for the eventual benefits that come with it!
