Hi there, My name is Eric Wilkes. You probably read about me somewhere online and now you're scoping things out on your own. I can't say I blame you, you don't know me from Adam. I developed this site to give you some info about me and more importantly what I'm truly all about. You'll quickly discover I'm a very REAL person on a very REAL journey just like you. I hope that by reading through this site, I'll clear up any unanswered questions and gain just a smidgen of your trust.
Where I've Been...
You see, I'm no one special or out of the ordinary, I'm just a young kid with a huge heart and passion for people that is determined to be successful in anything I do. I discovered at a very young age that I knew I didn't want to have a job. Like most college aged kids, I was graduating without a CLUE on what I wanted to do with my life. I was faced with the question, move back in with Mom and Dad or do it on my own.
Upon graduation, I knew one thing for SURE and that was the fact that I didn't want a regular job. I decided I'd rather do things my own way and STRUGGLE versus doing it someone else's way and still struggling. I knew a job wasn't for me so that's when I got into network marketing.
At the age of 22 I got involved in several home based business programs. I struggled terribly until I realized I had NO CLUE how to market a product or service, let alone an opportunity.
Where I'm at now...
I quickly learned that if I was going to be successful I'd have to learn how to market. So I took a step back and became and avid student of marketing. During that time, I left network marketing so I could devote my time to learning. In the meantime I started my own computer consulting business and picked up clients here and there to get me by. After some time off to devote to improving myself, I reentered the home based business arena with a burning desire. By age 25 I started seeing some pretty descent results, earning as much as $4,500 a week.
Since then, here are just a few of my accomplishments:
1. I've been featured in various magazines for being a young entrepreneur
2. I'm a published expert author on countless topics relating to marketing and business success
3. I've trained and coached THOUSANDS of individuals on the principals of creating wealth
This isn't about 'talkin' myself up'. I just want to earn a bit of your trust so that you know and understand you are working with a REAL life, reputable person. As I go through this thing called LIFE, I learn every single day. I constantly expand my mind and focus on improving myself!
I've been VERY fortunate to have some success at such an early age. It comes down to the fact that I stayed focused and was too hard headed to know when to throw in the towel and give up. For me, quitting was NOT an option! Having a job is easy but having a business is MUCH more rewarding! I'm no different than you or the next guy reading this. I'm just a young kid with BIG DREAMS like everyone else.
Where I'm going...
Throughout my failures (and my success) I've learned a few things. My experience has set me apart from the rest. I realized that only thing could change my ultimate destination and that was ME. Once I figured out ME and had the proper mindset, I quickly developed a clear vision of where I wanted to go.
Today, it is my intent to share my knowledge with as many people on this earth as humanly possible. As I personally go through my journey and continue to grow as a person and a human being, I'm here to keep you from struggling the same way I did. I'm here to provide a blueprint, a proven pathway for success. YOU are in control of you destiny. I believe there is a TRUE LEADER inside everyone and I intend to help expose that to the rest of the world.
I hope that we get to know each other and I greatly appreciate and thank you for taking the time to learn about me. This is only the beginning of who I am as a person as I continue to build my story on my journey through life. By now, hopefully you're assured that you're working with a real life everyday person just like you.
