1. Hello Morgan, we’re excited to interview you and share your expertise with our audience. Please tell us a little bit about your background and how you ended up choosing your field.
Thanks for having me! Well, put shortly, I always had the dream to live a life by design, one with freedom and choice and that got crushed when i finished school, finding myself in an apprenticeship I didn’t enjoy, around people that didn’t light me up or make me happy and I found myself using drugs and alcohol everyday to numb the pain and take me away from what was happening. At the age of 19 years I attempted suicide thinking it was the only way to stop the pain I was in. I realised that our environment is everything and I changed it up fast which got me introduced to Network Marketing at 21, a whole new group of people, self development and a community of people that lifted me up and pushed me to be the best version of myself. So I didn’t choose the path, it just found me after I was relentlessly looking for opportunities and remaining open minded. I think that’s what’s most important, to follow the vision of the life you want and remain open minded to opportunities that may get you there.
2. What were the biggest initial hurdles and how did you overcome them?
My two biggest hurdles coming to the realisation that I had to go ALL IN on my dreams and stop tip-toeing around it. Making the DECISION is the most important part in any entrepreneurs journey. Sometimes it can be scary for multiple reasons but we need to have faith that it’s going to be ok and just go for it. I overcame it when I realised it was more painful to stay exactly where I was then it was to get uncomfortable and go for it. We’ll do anything to avoid pain. Second one was my personal money block. I had the belief that if I was to become successful that I would be lonely, bored and outcast, which was actually my biggest fear! So if we do anything to avoid pain, and I believe that to be true of success, then why would i want to become successful? We do anything to avoid pain! So I destroyed that limiting belief and since then have nearly 10x my income within 6 months.
3. What are 3 tips you can share with our readers as it relates to your industry?
Make the decision to go all in on your dreams and have faith that everything will work out exactly how it’s meant to. Get around a supportive environment that is going to push and uplift you and hire a coach to teach you the exact steps. Don’t try and figure it out on your own.
Finally, Dont quit. For real, it’s the only way you can really fail. So just keep on going UNTIL it works for you.
4. How do you personally define success? What does it mean to you?
Success is living a life true to your values. Being able to do what you want, when you want. It’s not about having a big bank account, a nice house or a nice car, success is all about living a good life. Being able to make an impact, have a hell of a lot of fun, live a life by design and get paid a shit load of money in the process.
