Over the past weekend, I attended the “Creating a Dynasty” seminar in Los Angeles and I was fortunate enough to meet up with a friend of mine, Jeff Usner. I met Jeff about four years ago when he was building his dynasty and I had just begun my journey to financial freedom. I was broke as a joke back in those days and I was drawn to Jeff’s sincerity and kind demeanor. The only things I knew about Jeff then were that he had been destitute and over $100,000 in debt back in 2002. He overcame adversity and started his first online business on a shoestring budget. Within 12 months, he was debt-free, generating close to 40,000 leads a month for his sales team, and creating millions in revenue. Since then, Jeff has gone on to grow a large media and software company online. In 2010, I attended one of Jeff’s Internet Marketing Seminars and heard about his charity work with an orphanage in India. That same year, I took a trip to the King’s Children’s Home in Belize to work and the experience changed my life.
In Los Angeles, I sat next to Jeff taking notes, shooting the breeze, and catching up about our families. I was struck that, although he has built wealth beyond what anything most folks dream about, he was still seeking improvement and honing the tools that help him succeed. He’s still the same genuine, warm guy I met four years ago, with the sweet wife and the kids who sell stray golf balls from their backyard to offset their allowance. The secret to Jeff Usner is this: He remains humble. He remains steadfast. He remains diligent in the journey to greater awareness.
On July 15th, Jeff will be featured on ABC’s “Secret Millionaire” television show. I encourage you to watch. Remember that no one is ever too big to improve on the most valuable asset, which is YOU. If you’re in any type of business and you aren’t spending time on personal improvement, chances are, you’ll fall far short of your goals.
