We have a guest blog post from our blog sponsor BJ Dudley, Independent Distributor JAQX Smart Home Security System.
I want to share with you a little about myself and “WHY JAQX”
Somewhere in my soul, beats the heart of an entrepreneur. Over the years I have tried a variety of things from making hand made paper, to quilt making and nutrition.
Nutrition was something that I truly believe in and I still take the product I was selling to this day. While doing this for several years I came to realize two things about myself. I love to share anything I believe in, but I am terrible when it comes to “asking for the order”. The truth is, asking for the order is not part of my DNA, nor is asking for “anything”.
Even though my mother died when I was 3 years old I never once thought that would happen to me! I just knew I was not going to die, young! But, as crazy as this might sound I also never realized I was going to get old. I understood aging but never connected that with being old. Nor did I ever consider what it would be like, to live on a fixed income or not be hire-able. I want to say that I realize how very fortunate I am, compared to so many other people.
I had been living in Oregon and Nebraska prior to returning to California and I must say, when I did it was sticker shock.
My brother, who was 12 years older, than me and who had a very good retirement and savings had moved into assisted living along with his wife, to the tune of $8000 a month. At this point he became concerned that they might out live their money. They have since past away and what he was so worried about, never happened.
However, it was wake-up call for me! I knew that I wanted to do something – to not only be more active but also more financially independent. I wanted an income and ideally, I wanted one that I could build on.
A friend of mine, who I worked with at the nutrition company, called me not too long ago and told me about JAQX. After looking at the website and compensation plan I decided “this” was something I could do, and this was something I really wanted to share with others. In my mind’s eye I had found the goose that laid the golden egg. Right then and there, decided I wanted to share it with the world.
So here I am at 84 years old and starting my new adventure – with JAQX
To be honest, my family wasn’t very happy about it!
They just did not see what I saw. In their defense, I’d previously gotten them involved in some other adventures and they decided to sit this one out! Enough is enough is probably what they thought! Actually, what they said was, “We will support you in what you want to do but YOU NEED TO DO IT! IT’S YOUR BUSINESS!” I have two daughters: One is an entrepreneur and the other is a long-haul truck driver with her husband. Both love me. Neither wanted to be part of this business!
I was deflated and disappointed however I was determined to forge ahead. As they said, “this was my business!”
Now fast forward and here I am!! Face to face with my old problem. I CAN’T ASK – WON’T ASK – DON’T KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR SOMEONE/ANYONE TO SIMPLY LOOK AT MY BUSINESS.” Yeah “THAT PROBLEM” I love this company and product and I’m not sure why it’s so hard to simply ‘ASK’ someone to look at what I do and just tell me if they think it might be a good fit for them? If it might help them? If they might be interested?
So, as I stand here, before you today, and I know you might think I’m a bit crazy and maybe I am! But I invite all of you to laugh out loud with me and say “BJ, what in the hell are doing?” Well, I’ll tell you! I’m working for a company I love and I’m doing my very best to bring something great to the world and to gather the courage to ask, “WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT JAQX?”
That’s my story and I’m sticking with it! So, onward and upward and here we go!
