My Story Hi, my name is Keith Borgnet, and I have recently joined an international group of online entrepreneurs whose mission is to create 100 millionaires within the next 2 years. But before I get into that, let me tell you a bit about myself. I was born in a small South Island town of New Zealand. I was brought up in a nomadic lifestyle, always moving from town to town or farm-to-farm (I attended 9 different primary schools!), so I never got to call anywhere ‘home’. My family did not have a great deal of money, and I grew up in a pretty tough farming environment. I left home in 1978 and moved to the North Island, where I was about to find out that life wasn’t meant to be easy. My only financial education was “Son, make sure you put a bit of money aside for a rainy day”. I loved a party lifestyle, so it wasn’t long before I was broke. I couldn’t find a job anywhere and the “dole” wasn’t really enough to live on. After some time, drifting about, trying to make ends meet, I found out that there was a power station under construction in a town 20 miles away. I would sneak out every night for 2 weeks, siphoning fuel so I could drive there every day to hassle for a job. Finally, my persistence paid off, and the company hired me. I was so grateful to have a real job, but it didn’t take long before I got in trouble with the unions for “working too hard”. I didn’t know how to work any other way. It is not my nature to look for the easiest option. That contract ended mid 1980 and I decided to move to Australia. I traveled up and down the East coast between New South Wales and Queensland with three good friends, working contract construction and doing anything from welding railway lines to high-rise buildings. In 1984, I spent some time on Hamilton Island and was in the first outrigger canoe team – what a great life that was. I went back in 1987 and worked on George Harrison’s house with a mate who got me the job there. In September 1988 I went to Alice Springs for a look around, and spent the next twenty years there. There is definitely something special about the Northern Territory, so many wonderful people, and for the first time, I found somewhere to call “home”. Once again I had several different jobs, from the oil fields, the oil refinery, quarry work, and Boiler-making for an electrical company, to installing home security systems where I met over 150 different families and took great pleasure in making them safer in their homes. My desire to help people really came to the fore here. After the clean cut sales agents had gone (and sometimes left a bad taste in the customer’s mouths), scruffy little old me was left to the task of delivering what they had been promised in the sales pitch. It was around this time in 2001, when I had to learn how to use a computer to email my invoices to Brisbane, and I discovered the reach of the Internet. It was also here that I found out there seemed to be a lot of money floating around in “cyber space”. Up until that point, all my “jobs” had been on a contract basis, and invariably came to an end. I went broke about three times, but I was still determined to work for myself, on my own terms. I started my search for an online opportunity, which allowed me to work from anywhere and continue my nomadic lifestyle if I chose to do so. I briefly joined a network marketing business, but right from the outset, I knew it was not for me. I was simply uncomfortable cold calling leads, and talking to friends, family, and even complete strangers about a business where, to be honest, I was not making any money myself. After countless years of sifting through opportunities that amounted to nothing I could master, or in fact had no substance, I finally stumbled across the company that has everything I was looking for – a marketing system I could copy, a company with a fantastic compensation plan, a business with real people at the other end, who could teach me how to build my own business, and a real, exclusive product that could not be easily duplicated – finally!! I have since mover to Manila in the Philippines, and am enjoying learning how to work my business online, around the clock, while I enjoy my life. Well, now I’m off on my travels again, only this time taking my mobile office with me, just to prove anyone can do this from anywhere. Best Regards, Keith Borgnet.
