Can you relate to this?V2

February 22, 2020

So, I don’t know if you can relate to this but at age 52 I’m going through the most challenging time in my life when I really felt that I’d be setting myself up for financial independence. So I’m going through a after almost 25 years of marriage a divorce. My assets have been effectively halved and you know having worked for some 25 plus years It’s very confronting and actually a little scary quite scary in fact to realize I’m actually not as well off as I thought and so you know in that mindset and feeling very stressed, it wasn’t that long ago. In fact, it was almost five years ago after working for some 25 plus years really working long hours as a mortgage broker and a property consultant I got to a point that I got a diagnosis having gone to my doctor one day that he said mate you’ve got a tumor that’s pretty surreal when you hear that mate you’ve got a tumor. In fact I know we’re exactly where I was I was driving along and he says look it’s not the news I wanted to tell you but you’ve got a tumor and so I made the journey into see him the following week and there sitting on a table was a prostate cancer kit. It’s very very confronting at age 47 and I remember sitting there with my wife wondering is that actually for me? Well of course it turned out it was. Fast forward a couple of months later I ended up having surgery and had my prostate removed. I’m really really confident though that I manifested that as a result of all the stress I was under I was under a lot of financial pressure trying to keep up with the Joneses so to speak had high debt with mortgages and cars and school fees and you know maybe that’s something you could relate to so as I said age 52 I effectively lost half my assets and started to really think about you know what am I gonna do in terms of retirement? I need another income and I was actually on the internet one day and happened to see this guy an ex corporate lawyer look really really relaxed and that resonated with me because I wasn’t relaxed and he talked about how he spent many years working really long hours not seeing a lot of his family but that he had started with no experience an online internet marketing business and I do stress I had no experience either so he sent me this free video series and I want to actually pay it forward and send you the same video series that I received and give you that same opportunity to have a look at it because the question is at some point our income’s going to stop we get that last paycheck and so with the advent of modern medicine we are living longer and whatever your the cost of living is now fast forward to when you retire how long’s that gonna last if you’re going to be another 20 plus years alive you know divide that by whatever you’ve got is your nest egg that’s possibly going to run out too soon now I don’t know about you but I’m not that keen on having to reduce my my living standards The other thing is we as we get older we’re going to need medicine people get sick let’s face it. I don’t want to be a burden to my kids not at all so I want to be able to set myself up financially and that’s one of the key factors for me of why I’m building an online business you know it’s a part-time business that’s probably gonna take me some two, three, four, five years but hey isn’t that worth it the other thing that really troubles me when I look around let’s face it a lot of jobs have changed and a lot of jobs have become obsolete artificial intelligence robots,they reckon they’re by 2040 some 40% of jobs will be obsolete a lot of jobs are becoming automated and so and that’s a pretty scary thought but if you’re prepared to re-skill and put in a little bit of effort well hopefully you know like me where I’m taking action to be able to supplement that income to top it up so that I can hopefully have enough to be able to live a comfortable retirement and so if that’s something that you relate to somewhere on this page I’ve put a link for you and all you do just pop in your first name and your email and I’ll send you the same videos that I received and I hope that you find some value in there and in the meantime my name’s Phil Robison you have a wonderful day and bye for now.
