My name is Tony Burse and I am Tomkatt in the Wealthy Affiliate community. I have been fortunate and blessed to have lived a life that has taken from Georgia to New Jersey and from New Jersey back to Georgia.
While working in New Jersey I acquired experience as a Master Bread Baker, Lab Technician, Real Estate Investor, Commercial Office Cleaning and the Home Based Business Industry. No matter who I worked for I always saw myself owning my own company. I would read about the many people who started out as an employee for a company , got fed up with their job, listened to some tapes or attended a seminar and found a way out of the 9 to 5 grind. For many years I had a full time job and a part time business. After juggling both,a full time job and a part time business for well over 10 years, I too had come to a cross road in my life and career. So in 2010 I fired my boss and hired myself as full time work from home Dad. My focus at that time was to create enough income to take care of myself and my family. I quickly found out the hard way that having or operating a business full time was a lot of work and would take a lot of time and money. I also found out ,statistically, it would take about 5 years to see if I could make it in the Home Based Business Industry?
I did one thing right and that was having a Home Based Business model. This helped me to save money while I was building the business. The name of the company I started at that time was” Burse Global Ventures”. Later I changed my business name to from Burse Global to “Change Your Thinking Change Your Life”.My passion was in the area of Personal Development and Personal Growth. I did my best to promote this business. I did everything from Direct Mail , Online Marketing and workshops. My product came in the form of a CD and we offered training and support in the area of Personal Growth and Development. Along with this training we had a compensation plan. I thought everyone on the planet would enjoy improving themselves and making money! Needless to say it was going to take a lot more than a CD and a compensation plan to help the people I thought it could help. The first 2.5 years, it seemed like things were going well. We had recruited 60 people and the team was starting to grow. Then the business slowed down and almost stopped in 2013. If it wasn’t for Personal Growth and Development ,GOD and my family I might have quit! I so happy I stayed during the lean years and got to the other side.
From 2010 till this very moment I have worked very hard to bring value to the Home Based Business Industry. What has kept me energized and focused is helping as many people as possible ,reading lot of books, listening to a CD’s on Personal Development and Leadership Development .For those who have started a Home Based Business, congratulations! For those who will start or looking to start welcome aboard and congratulation!
Let me ask you a question. If you were visiting a foreign land and you didn’t know anyone and you had to learn all the local customs and habits on your own how long do you think it would take you? Or visiting a foreign land , learning all the local customs and habits but this time you have a Guide and a Support system. Which sounds better to you?
We all learn at different rates and by different methods. Some learn by Visual, Some by Auditory and some by Touching. In any business you will need tools. You will have to be teachable and flexible long enough for the business to make sense or for you to make a profit or help enough people. Support and having a system are key components, in my humble opinion, to longevity in any business. Systems are duplicatible and people are not. You are very important and unique to the sustainability of your business. Whatever you decide to do make sure you follow the plan, have support and never quit.
Words of wisdom from Tony!
You must always be willing serve others.
If you help others get what they want, you can get what you want.
Never quit or give up on your dreams or passions .
Love yourself and let the world have it your way.
You are never too old to learn and you are never too young to teach.
Put God first and you will never be second.
I Appreciate YOU….
