Stories of Resilience and Resourcefulness Throughout History

Is building a business easy?

Within the Network Marketing model i’d say that it’s simple, but definitely NOT easy.

I’ve never met someone who said “oh this is turning out to be much easier than I thought it would be in the beginning”.

In today’s episode i’ve decided to highlight stories of people throughout history who struggled but chose to be resilient and resourceful and ended up achieving massive things while on the earth. =)
