What RunDreamAchieve Is Not
What rundreamachieve is not?
A website about running.
I want to get to the brass tax of why I created this website.
I realized back in 2011 that working a regular job in the military simply wasn’t enough.
It isn’t nor is it in the civilian world.
The moment you get sick, cannot work or you stop showing up so does your paycheck stop showing up in your bank account every two weeks.
This isn’t the case for all people.
Some folks are entrepreneurs and earn money while they sleep.
The vast majority of the world population working as employees have been taught to rely on one source of income.
Here is what Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and real estate investor says about the paycheck.
Most employees will take offense to what Robert says.
Let’s face it.
You may have no interest whatsoever in starting a business.
You may love your job and many people do.
The problem is if an emergency comes up and you cannot work you will not get paid.
This is the reality for most employees.
This is a not a post to disrespect employees.
Keep in mind I am one too and if I can take the tough love so can you.
I do not waste my time watching 5 to 6 hours of television every day like the average American.
I’m constantly thinking of new ways to help people, generate more revenue streams and help my readers do the same.
Jobs pay the bills and most of the time they don’t even do that.
We have 78 percent of the working population in this country living paycheck to paycheck and I am sick and tired of it.
I’m sick and tired of seeing so many of my friends, family and co-workers relying on one source of income and trying to pay off 5 to 15 different bills with it.
Is it no wonder why so many people cannot get ahead financially due to the philosophy we all have been taught?
Go to school, get good grades and get a job?
Student loan debt in this country now tops $1.4 trillion dollars.
I know about student loans.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Malone University and a Master of Science degree from the University of Northern Colorado.
It took me 12 years to pay off my student loan debt and a trip to Afghanistan where I paid off my last payment in 2012.
I graduated from my undergraduate studies in 2000.
I have family that went to the same university for their undergraduate studies and finished roughly the same time I did still paying on theirs.
Recently, I wised up and finally, after several years of not using it, put my Post 911 GI Bill to work.
I was accepted recently to work toward my MBA from Temple University starting next month (January 2018) and fortunately it will be fully funded.
What Is RunDreamAchieve?
It was never meant to be a site specifically about running although many of my readers come from all over the world and are endurance athletes.
Of course, I love helping people get fitter, run faster and lose weight but I get more satisfaction seeing one of my readers become an entrepreneur.
Their decision to do so will help them realize the difference between linear income (having to continue to go somewhere to warm a seat for 40 hours or more per week) and residual income (income that continues to come for having worked hard once).
Two massive business opportunities that, unfortunately, most of my readers will not take action on.
The so-called safe and secure paycheck wins out in most cases.
Never have a ceiling on your income. If you have to be somewhere for a specific amount of time you have a ceiling on your income. – T Harv Eker, entrepreneur
The problem with the paycheck is you have to keep showing up in order to collect and that is a massive revenue leak.
Stress can kill and the average American is not getting paid the amount they deserve for the amount of hard work they are putting in.
What it is is a website devoted to giving people some options to earn additional revenue using methods most either ignore or will never try for whatever reason.
I have lost count now of people who have contacted me either interested in starting a home based business with either max international (of which I have been an associate of the past 5 years at the time of this writing) or world global network but never took action.
They wanted the extra money but couldn’t invest the $49 to get started.
Most people can afford to spend $49 on a video game or a red lobster dinner but won’t invest the same amount in something that can pay huge, long-term dividends.
There is a massive difference between being interested vs committed.
The majority of my readers may or may not know that multi-level marketing is a $187 billion dollar annual business.
That is more money that the NFL, movie and music industry makes combined.
So, folks can talk negative all they want about how network marketing is a scam and how only folks at the top make the most money.
Be my guest.
I desire to associate with winners not folks who bitch and complain and accept life as trading time for a highly taxed paycheck.
A paycheck that only arrives every two weeks and you are paid second.
Who gets paid first?
You do all the work and Uncle Sam gets his cut for not doing a damn thing.
Linear income is the worst form of income there is because it comes at a heavy price, ones life – Bob Proctor, entrepreneur
What rundreamachieve is is a website that is going to force you out of your comfortable, secure mindset.
My drive, tenacity and no-non sense atttitude comes from 26 years of athletic experience.
The same focus I put into my athletic training has carried over into my businesses.
I accept that most people don’t like the idea of doing something that feels unnatural.
Its normal to feel that way but Ive found most of the things we fear doing is the exact thing we should be seeking out to start.
Fear, far too often, holds us back.
So, I just move on that and do it anyway.
Think I didn’t hear network marketing was a scam over the years?
Do you think I haven’t heard I shouldn’t invest in crypto currencies the past few years also?
The folks that bought bitcoin at $0.01 in 2009 have a different story to tell those folks that said it was a scam.
We have too many people in this country and around the world who are being forced to be at a location they may or may not want to be at on a daily basis, for a specific amount of time and told when they can go home for the day.
Someone else dictates their day for them.
The moment you check out from work so does the pay.
You only get paid for the work you do.
You don’t get paid for the work other people do.
Leverage is getting paid regardless if you work or not.
Now, that may not be your reality but it is the reality for most people.
Let’s be honest.
What RunDreamAchieve Is Not
It is not a website devoted 100-percent to running.
I ran 26 years at the national or international level.
Fitness and nutrition has been a part of my life since I was 15 years old.
I’m now 41.
Running will always be an activity I will enjoy and work at but at the end of the day, running doesn’t pay the bills.
I won $1000 when I ran my personal best for the marathon (2:19:35).
The most money I have ever won and it isn’t easy to duplicate a 2:19:35.
I tried to do it for a decade and couldn’t match what I did on 7 December 2007.
Unless you can break 2:10:00 in the marathon and more so in the ballpark of 2:05:00, running won’t create financial freedom in your life.
It won’t give you more time with your family rather than the office.
We all are replaceable as employees.
Anyone who works on a fixed income knows the feeling of what working hard feels like.
How many know what working smart feels like?
Getting paid even while you sleep or are on vacation.
The average employee gets more of a staycation rather than a vacation.
Most Americans and people from around the world are laden in debt thanks to banks.
Paying on mortgages.
Did you know the world “mortgage” means death pledge?
How convenient the banking industry chose such a word for “homeowners” who sign their promissory note that becomes a negotiable instrument (same as cash) to a bank without being given full disclosure.
If they only knew the fund their own loan and are making monthly payments+interest on their own money.
Untrue you say?
Build Your Revenue Streams
If you are broke then you need to start thinking of other ways to make money aside from that JOB (just over broke).
This is not to disrespect anyone with jobs.
Please do not misunderstand me.
I’ve been on active duty in the military for 16 years and have worked as an employee too.
My motivation for creating rundreamachieve is for a reason and due to experiences I have had over the years.
I hold two college degrees working on a third (MBA) and know there are high school drop outs that make more in a day than I make in a year as a medical commissioned officer in the Army.
College degrees aren’t a guarantee.
In fact, nothing is.
My motivation for creating rundreamachieve was to help other people and to create financial freedom for myself and my family.
There are people asking how to make money with bitcoin now.
The cyrpto currency industry is exploding and yet not 1 in 10,000 people know anything about blockchain technology.
The average American watches 5 to 6 hours of television.
More and more people all over the world working as employees are working longer hours for less pay and benefits.
Whatever happened to living instead of just existing?
I’m sorry if I sound like debby downer here but it is the truth.
If you want safe and secure rundreamachieve is not for you.
You can depart now if you wish.
You’re always welcome back but I already know some of what I write here simply will not resonate with people.
I come from a result-oriented background and have never been friends with the status quo.
I wanted to run fast and knew in order to do that I couldn’t train like everyone else.
Running slow is great for fitness and overall conditioning.
Running fast for long periods of time takes a specific trait and a willingness that not all people are willing to put themselves through.
A lot of runners would like to break a 3 hour marathon.
Few do though.
Some folks want to learn how to run a 5K.
In 2007, only 63 men in the united States of America broke the 2:20:00 barrier.
The level of training I had to maintain to do that is something I will never forget.
I am hard on my readers for a reason.
You need to get out of your comfort zone and accepting what you were taught all these years.
Stay on the cliff.
Get a job.
Go to school.
Put your money in a 401K.
Same doesn’t create generational wealth.
A pension doesn’t do that either.
Freedom from someone else dictating how your day is to be spent.
Freedom to travel when you want to.
Freedom of the worry of what something costs.
Freedom from being taxed using a social security number someone else created without your consent the day you were born and follows you throughout life.
Few people even know why their birth name is written in all capitalized letters on everything they own.
The reality is most people don’t know the difference between a signature and an autograph and why 9 times out of 10 banks and employers ask for your signature.
Have you ever walked through a cemetery?
If you have you will notice that every tombstone you see has a flesh and blood souls’ name written in ALL CAPS.
Only corporations names are written in all capitalized letters.
What are dead people called?
Deep subject matter I know but we need to get away from all the things we have been taught as true and start doing the opposite.
Now, look down at your drivers license, bill statement, marriage or birth certificate and look at how your name is written.
My people perish for a lack of knowledge – Hosea 4:6
These are some of the motivations I had (and still have) when creating rundreamachieve.
What rundreamachieve is not is a website specifically about running.
I can write about how to break the 3 hour marathon until I am blue in the face and it won’t put one red cent in your bank account.
It won’t help you or your family create leverage.
Leverage simply means doing more with less and the philosophy here in America is just to work hard regardless if it is detrimental to your health.
There is plenty of money to be made but limited time. What are you doing to leverage that precious commodity?
My 2:19 marathon PR is not putting a cent in your pocket.
Sharing how to start a max international business with you.
Writing a post about world global network and the $2.2 trillion dollar technology industry that 99.999% of the people you know will pass by and accept the safe and secure paycheck instead.
There are numerous ways to earn additional income that were never discussed in the halls of academia.
Holding college degrees is not a guarantee.
How many people do you know who have college degrees who are broke or are working in job field they didn’t even go to school for?
Know any of these people intimately?
Again, brass tax.
Are You Interested or Committed?
I didn’t run 2:19 for the marathon being interested.
I never had much talent.
The first mile I ran as a high school freshman was run in 5:30.
My best two-mile as a freshman was 11:30.
Those efforts do not equate to holding 5:19 per mile for 26.2 miles (2:19:35).
It took immense dedication and effort from 1992 to 2007 to get under 2:20:00 for the marathon.
I’m not writing this to impress you.
I have been beaten by more runners than I can count.
2:19 is fast but it won’t hold up to win Boston, New York City or Chicago.
There is more to life than running and our personal best times.
Fortunately, making additional streams of income does not take as long nor takes nearly the amount of effort as running does.
How much does it cost to start a max international business?
Can you afford $49?
Think of the one bag of groceries you bought at Whole Foods that cost you twice that.
The problem is far too many people are listening to broke relatives, friends, family members and co-workers who are swaying them from not getting started.
The what if’s stop people cold in their tracks.
Fear of the unknown.
Here is my take on it and this is coming from someone who has experienced the same frustrations many other people have felt or are currently feeling.
You have to jump.
Steve Harvey, in the below video, puts it far better than I ever could…
You are going to have to make some big boy or big girl moves in 2018 and into the future.
We all cannot keep relying on the tired, old, industrial aged idea of going to school, getting good grades and getting a job.
This is not going to create the lifestyle most people dream about.
The average college graduate here in America owes $38,000 of student loan debt upon graduation.
These same college graduates have families, take out mortgages paying banks that didn’t lend them one red cent.
If you still believe the banks lent you money you seriously need to read this post about Breach of Contract I wrote on Linkedin.
Here are a few resources as ideas to earn more income in 2018 you can use as an athlete.
- Start a max international business
- Get involved with world global network. The first multi-level marketing company focused on wearable technology
- Make Money with Bitcoin
Thee are all ways to make additional income with little to any start up costs.
Residual income is simply not the reality for most people but once it becomes yours then the ignorant viewpoints you once had about mlm or starting a business quickly diminish.
I have written numerous posts here on rundreamachieve, some of which resonate with people, others that don’t.
Take it or leave it.
Hopefully what I write will get someone out of their comfort zone.
Can you make money and live a life of freedom with a job?
If you owe more money than you have that is going to be hard to come by though.
If your pay is tied to your time than you had best take the options mentioned above seriously as they can create additional leverage that you may be recieving.
The beauty of this is you still work the job you love or hate and supplement your income.
You don’t have to change up your daily routine.
The question is are you willing to make the moves necessary in order to do that?
Most hear the word network marketing or multi-level marketing and think scam immediately.
I don’t blame them.
I, too, was a skeptic.
I was also very ignorant about the industry until I opened my mind and gave it a shot.
Max International has not been late once in 5 years in sending me my weekly commission payments.
Naysayers are all around us.
Many of us listen to them and it stops us from making home runs too.
It is your choice.
We all have a choice.
Put in the miles.
Get out the door.
Make a move.
Want to start earning some real residual income in one of the most lucrative industries out there?
What rundreamachieve is not is the home for safe and secure.
It is a website devoted to getting people away from being comfortable, average and accepting a mediocre lifestyle when we all were born to live an abundant, fruitful life.
We weren’t put here to trade our lives for a highly taxed paycheck.
We are more than social security numbers.
We are not persons (look up the legal definition of the word) but flesh and blood men and women with goals and dreams.
…and those of us who put in the hustle, achieve.
