We've all heard of people who were forced by life's circumstances to become successful entrepreneurs. But Jeff Lerner is different.He was an entrepreneur almost from birth. He figured out from childhood that he wanted to be in control of his income and his time. Then he committed himself to his dream to earn his own money and to determine when and where he worked. (He confesses that he really never liked anybody else telling him what to do.)
Jeff says, "I had this feeling deep insidethat I was born to do more than just punch a clock and work for somebody else."
How many people do you know who start their first business by the age of 16? How many in their early twenties support themselves as a professional jazz pianist--self taught, by the way? Jeff did. He was also a successful real-estate professional and franchise owner before the age of 27.
On the other hand, how many 28 year-olds are $253,000 in debt and facing bankruptcy? Jeff says, "I was one of the youngest people ever awarded a multi-unit agreement by a major US restaurant franchise. Unfortunately, the recession hit a few months after I opened my second store. I was forced to shut down both stores within a year, and all that remained were some really big bank loans."
His crippling financial situation and failed businesses greatly affected Jeff's personal life as well. By the fall of 2008, he was living in a friend's spare room—alone, confused, and greatly disillusioned.
Another friend introduced Jeff to multilevel marketing. Desperate for any solution, he signed up and did his best to make a go of it.
"I worked really hard. I got my required 10 customers and signed up 20 distributors just as I was instructed, but they weren't willing to do what I did. My 20 distributors recruited a grand total of one person between them. I felt like I had joined the NFL Club—"No Friends Left." The result of all my hard work was 20 former friends who were ticked off that I had 'sold them' something. Recruiting friends and family into network marketing was clearly not the best solution for me. I was terrible at it. No, that's not strong enough. I despised it."
As luck would have it--while checking his e-mails late one night--Jeff found his solution.
"I'll never forget the date. It was Nov 21, 2008. I wasn't actually looking for anything specific (I had kind of given up), but I always try to be open-minded."
He read on the Internet about a former muffler salesman who was currently earning millions of dollars per year. He had done this by leveraging the power of the Internet for his Direct Sales business.
"I was really desperate. I mean, I had absolutely no place left to go. And I figured-- if a muffler salesman could do this well, just maybe I could do it, too."
Hope fired up Jeff's entrepreneurial spirit again, and he poured himself into learning about the Internet. Lo and behold, he started working his way out from under the crushing debt that his failed businesses had produced.
Jeff says, "It took a couple of months to get the hang of it, but once I did—my business just took off. And then I got it. I figured out the secret. I suddenly understood the huge leverage at my disposal with more than 1.5 billion people online around the world. In fact, I earned over $70,000 in my seventh month alone, and I haven't looked back since."
Since discovering the power of the Internet and its secret formula, Jeff has coached more than 400 others to get started with him. Many of these students regularly generate 5 and six figure monthly incomes. His debts have been paid, he recently relocated to a lovely home in the Rocky Mountains, and his sights are set on a million dollar year in 2011. All because he really figured out this business.
"Yes," Jeff admits, "I've had a lot of personal success as a marketer. But I measure success today by how many other people I'm able to help. My passion today is all about paying it forward. I enjoywatching new members suddenly get it, just as I did, and start making some serious money fast. My job is to shorten the learning curve for them, and I do this very well."
He stared off into space for a moment, and then he added with conviction, "I won't stop now until I personally help 100 people become millionaires in this business. People who are struggling the same way I struggled before I figured it out. You see, I know exactly how this business operates now. And I have a turnkey system that works for anybody who's willing to follow my lead. Show me 100 serious entrepreneurs who are ready to get ahead in life, and I'll show you 100 new members who can enjoy the same success that I have. There's really nothing special about me. Once you understand how to use it, the system does all the heavy lifting for us."
"Coming out of a successful pharmaceutical career, my wife and I thought that MLM would be the path to real financial freedom. One year later, we had made a measly $646 and quickly realized we had missed it big time. We turned to the only place we felt had any real hope--the Internet. Just 18 weeks after getting started with Jeff and this powerful system, we earned over $100,000 and haven't looked back since."

willing to do the work, then he couldn't help me.
The others out there tried to make their business sound much too easy! Thanks, Jeff, for telling it like it is. And Jeff was always there for me. I make a very substantial income now, plus I work from home—or wherever my wife and I travel. As long as I have my laptop and an Internet connection, I can make money from anyplace in the world. At age 73, my income is more than many of my doctor friends who are still in practice. Jeff truly is a money-making wizard. And he showed me how to do it, too.
