From Failure to Success

   Failure is something that we all face in our lives. I've sure had my A22 ................... . I remember that by the mid 1990s, I had worked myself all the way from a sales person to Marketing Director of a thriving company only to discover that I really did not like that position. So I did something radical. I decided A23 ................... that very secure job and start my own advertising based business. It was an original idea in an industry I was very familiar with - a business magazine mailed to local business owners around my community. A great idea plus my hard work ethic would work, I was sure.

   Both my wife and I put everything we had, financially and emotionally, into this idea. It was very exciting to see how fast we acquired our first (and last) 30 clients! Within a couple of months we had a real magazine! Clients were getting fantastic results. There was only one small problem. Although clients were A24 ................... about the return they were getting, some still had financial problems and couldn't continue on a regular A25 ................... . The bottom line was that we eventually A26 ................... out of money. Then, on top of having to close down the magazine, we even had to sell our car just to pay postage for the last mailing!

   I was devastated ... my dream had died. I remember how depressed I was. I had no job, no money, and worst of all - a seriously damaged sense of confidence. Maybe, that's where you are now.

   It took another two months for me to hit the real bottom when I had to sell our earthquake preparedness kit to buy some food ... we were that A27 ................... . But I didn't give up hope to find employment. A week later, totally out of the A28 ..................., I received a call from a stranger offering me the best job I'd ever had. An old friend who I hadn't talked with for years referred me to him. It was nothing short of a miracle, It was eerie.
