This week, we had the pleasure to meet with a particular exceptional individual.
Patrick worked in the Fortune 1000 software world all his life, and he’d finally had enough 3 years ago.
He’d been going non stop, under pressure, managing sales and marketing for some big software companies.
In 2001 by having been in (and surviving) the World Trade Center when it was hit, Patrick was changed forever by learning to realize that you best make the most of the time you have, both for yourself, and for others.
When he joined EN, he’d been trying to make a living online for over a year.
The first 6 months online for him was a disaster, where he earned a grand total of $38.
That was before it all “Clicked.”
Once Patrick started in EN, he began to make great progress, investing in himself by going all in farly quickly.
In less than a year, he was earning more than he did from his pension!
“It wasn’t magic,” Patrick says, “I just did much of what we are taught.“
It was around that time that Patrick started holding monthly hangouts for people 50 and older. We called ourselved the ‘Wisdom Keepers then.’
He kept that ball rolling. So far and So fast, that “Boomer High” has come alive.
Patrick has decided to start holding these Hangouts in a team independant fashion.. he doesn’t care what team people are in.
He just wants to do what he can do to help and encourage them.
“I just want to give back to EN, in a way that is helpful to others.
EN means a lot too me.
It is giving me Freedom.“
Check out the post below and BOOMER HIGH. It’s an age group and open webinar geared towards helping people succeed.
- The En Team
Reblogged From Boomer High – Empowering Boomers Worldwide
As many of you know, over a year ago, I started a group within the Empower Network “Dream Team” called the Wisdom Keepers.
Along with others, we encouraged, mentored and assisted in promoting Empower Network to the age 50+ crowd.
I feel EN really given to me a fresh mindset, more enthusiasm, a renewed courage and confidence and yes, a nice income too, all by going through the training and implementing it by taking action on an ongoing basis.
Many of us have gone on to real serious success within Empower Network.
Whereas it started as purely a Dream Team initiative, the name Wisdom Keepers even spread a bit beyond the incredible DT to within the broader EN community and was recognized at the Orlando event this past year.
But in it’s infancy is was oriented to one team and one downline.
The Wisdom Keepers will continue as an ogoing initiative within the Dream Team and be lead by the amazing Bobi Beecher Williams.
However, in support of all boomers and seniors in Empower Network I’ve decided to go beyond that with a completely new initiative, and a new site name.
We want to help and encourage a broader audience and open up to the world, regardless of upline or downline. The messages are too important to be kept to one team. And many teams just don’t have the critical mass of boomers in them to cater to boomer’s specific messages or needs.
As such, we’ve decided to create a completely team independant page and have a ongoing series of Webinars / Hangouts for the baby boomer crowd.
Boomer High is on the Air!
We’ve called our initiative Boomer High
You can see our last hangout directly on the site.
But here’s also a quick video I did today about last night’s event.
Boomer High’s mission is providing encouragement, mentoring, and opportunity to Baby Boomers around the world, and giving them a marketing vehicle that is appropriate and supported by successful affilaiates within their own demographic.
This is an age group that is often ignored in Network Marketing circles, even though when you see the actual statistics in networking marketing organzations, a sizeable chunk of their affiliates are in that age range.
I personally noticed the percentage of people with a bit of grey hair at the recent Charlotte event wast pretty darned high!
Boomers can be a force, and Empower Network knowsthis, and is definitely interested in this important market segment
As for boomers and seniors, many of us have had very successful careers.
And Within EN there are a number of boomers in the top 1%, including me.
We’ve had a multitude of life experiences, naturally, some great ones, and some bad ones.
Essentiallly in many cases, we’ve been there, done that.
Many of us look back at the “good old days” fondly.
But at Boomer High, we’re all about moving forward to the GREAT NEW DAYS!
Life hasn’t beat us down.
It’s given us a passion for more.
More fun, more passion, more love, and more prosperity.
And we want to channel our abilities.
We want to harness our power!
And yes, certainly, we want to supplement our incomes.
And we want to do it, with dignity, style, and flare in ways that boomers can and in ways that appeal to other boomers.
So we are offering to everyone in the entire organization the opportunity to lock arms with us.
I will be asking a number of other leaders in EN to join us on these hangouts.
People will learn from these. People will be inspired.
So, have your boomer team members watch our webinars.
Have them learn from our experiences.
Have your boomer rising stars participate in our webinars.
(The should contact me on skype at patrick.batty)
Put us to work for you, so we can help you attract people from this important demographic.
OUr August 6th Hangout has now completed and can be viewed on the site
and our next hangout will be Wendesday August 13 at 8 PM EDT (New York Time)
That’s GMT – 4 for you international folks.
And we will conintue them weekly at Wednesday’s at 8PM going forward.
The video will remain on the site until the one that follows.
So what can you do?
First, we have encoded our Webinar page to your EN id.
So you can promote with this link on an ongoing basis for our weekly Hangouts.
We will be going WEEKLY in September.
Natually add your EN user name to the end of that link.
I’m sure you know the drill.
The join links and income disclosure links on Boomer High are time delayed to appear at appropriate times in our webinars but are also id encoded to you!
We will be promoting the EN Starter Kit on these webinars. Not just the blogging system.
Becuae we think the Starter Kit is perfectly suited to Boomers!
This means more income to you, and them, and a better chance at success and duplication for your boomer team members.
And because we are promoting the EN Starter kit with an ENCODED link as well, anyone that opts in will go directly onto the list you’ve set up in the starter kit settings.
Our page is http://boomerhigh.com/?id=
We promise to support the group going forward.
