My friend Benji shouldn’t even be alive.
In May of 2018 while sitting in traffic he was hit from behind by an 18-wheeler going over 50 mph. It knocked him and his truck ¼ mile through a power line pole and a fence. If that wasn’t bad enough he suffered a ladder to the back of his head causing a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage which resulted in 5 days in ICU and 6 full months out of work.
It’s a miracle that he survived. That accident would have been enough excitement for most people, but Benji “decided” to get accidentally shot in the chest in February of this year.
He and some friends were on a guys trip in Georgia and Benji took a 40 caliber hollow point dead center to his chest. At the time they were at a state park a full hour away from the hospital.
This accident resulted in a 28 day stay in the hospital 3-1/2 hours away from home.
For most folks accidents like this would result in severe financial stress due to missing so much work, but because Benji and Angie had built up their Amazon business it continued to pay the bills while Angie was able to nurse him back to health.
About 4 years ago they started with $300 and have grown their business to where they’ll hit about $400,000 in sales for 2019!
You can listen to the rest of Benji’s story in the most recent podcast episode here – http://streamsofincomeradio.
Hopefully you don’t have to endure a severe car crash and a gunshot to the chest, but I do want you to be like Benji and have a business that can allow you to take time off (not in the ICU, though) and it still pay the bills.
It took Benji and Angie 4 years to get to where they are now. 2023 will come no matter what. It’s up to you what your business looks like when it does. Will you be wishing you took action now or will you be at $400,000 in sales?
It’s up to you.
