Ever been on food stamps?
I have and don't get me wrong, I'm so thankful that the program exists — otherwise I don't know how I'd have been able to feed my 5 kids still at home.
For me, it was embarrassing. I felt like a failure. Like someone had pulled the rug right out from under me and I couldn't get up.
I was depressed and overwhelmed with what lay ahead. No money, not even a prospect for a job and couldn't imagine what I was going to do.
My depression was short lived and probably mostly due to the huge crushing blow the loss of my business and finances were to my ego. Fortunately, my wife wasn't worried. Or at least she didn't let on to be.
She said we could both get jobs and we could make it. We could rebuild so to speak.
All this while sitting on a sofa that they used to birth 3 chimpanzees and 2 billy goats on the ride over on Noah's Ark. I'm talking an old nasty sofa.
Have you ever lost power and then about 1 million times you go to flick a light on out of habit even though you know there is no power?
Well that's how I was. I'd wake up each morning thinking well I can go out and do this or that, or I'll grab this or that and then reality would set in…. I don't have this or that anymore, I can't feed the horses because I don't have any. I can't watch the chickens at the barn, because I don't have chickens nor the barn anymore.
I certainly, each day by lunch WOULD be playing my tiny sob story violin. I was upset and the kids, those little bottomless pits wanted to eat every single day. They still wanted clothes and all the other stuff that comes along with kids.
“Can we go out to McDonald's Dad?”
Ahhhhh NOPE! I DON'T know if you've noticed that we had our power shut off last week for two days and then we have been eating Ramen noodles and macaroni every day, but yea, it's not because we've become secret rich people. We are broke honey! Broke, like we don't have any extra money.
“well can't we at least get a satellite dish so we can watch tv or can you turn my phone back on so I can download some videos?”
Apparently “broke” doesn't mean the same thing to them as it does to the rest of the population.
As a dad, a parent, I wanted to provide, I wanted to get them what they needed and some of what they wanted.
Well you know the rest of it.. I FOUND HOT DOGS AND HOT DOGS SAVED MY LIFE!
Hot Dogs took me to over $8,000 my first month out and had I known about secrets I do now… I would have made much more.
With the Vend Anywhere Hack… I would have probably done $15K to $20k my first month. YOU CAN GET IT HERE…
BUT IF YOU HAVEN'T STARTED YET… AND YOU HAVE VERY LITTLE MONEY TO START…
