Well, I believe every man and woman has a turning point in their life be it getting a job, getting graduated, through relationships, succeeding in a business, etc... My turning point of the life is when I got graduated and got a job immediately related to my studies. And after this my life has changed and I have entered a new chapter in the book. So what is it for you?

I haven't reached my turning point but i'm on my way. I'm currently co-owning a growing business and i'm pretty devoted to making it big. I have plans and i believe that when i reach it's climax, that'd be my turning point.

Yeah. We all have wonderful life stories and turning points. I applauded you Vince for staying in the traditional path to success in life particularly in career. Most people choose that path. It's an easy path compared to what we've chosen... I was born in a middle class family of traders in a remote province here in the Philippines. My mother owns a grocery store which "wholesale" goods to smaller retail stores here in our place. She sent me to Philippines' capital city of Manila to study pharmacy course. But the sad thing that happened was, I failed them when I prematurely dropped out of college to pursue business (early jumping into the business world). It was triggered and inspired by stories of drop-out Billionaires like Bill Gates, Michael Dell, and Larry E. At young age of 20, I found myself street-fighting in the real world of brutal business. And then I found myself hopping from pharmaceutical sales jobs to network marketing, hoping to strike it rich. Although I have mingled with ultra-successful network marketers, my adventure went sour. Instead of striking it rich at young age, I was desperately losing hairs trying to succeed in network marketing. Instead of getting rich, I was failing miserably. That only changed when I bumped with Robert Kiyosaki's teachings. I eventually learned from him the way of the rich, and how to get rich the safe way, and not my "failure" way. I learned from him you must have 3 plans to succeed financially: 1. Plan to be secured. 2. Plan to be comfortable. 3. Plan to be rich. The first plan is a prerequisite of the 2nd plan. Then the 2nd of the 3rd. Without first minding the first one, and prematurely jumping to the 2nd plan or 3rd, it will mean disaster for you and your loved ones. It's also the reason you see high flying dreamers got financially wounded family members left along the way. Now that I have learned my mistakes, I changed my strategy. Instead of battling the brutal business streets of Manila building my network marketing like a foot soldier, I went home. I assumed the management of my mother's business, and then re-invested the profits to a new business, a pharmacy business. I now feel more secured of my future, more comfortable, and still holding on to my dreams of getting rich with global online network marketing. I am currently building a global network marketing team online while managing my pharmacy business. I found a better way to build my dreams. Thanks to Robert Kiyosaki's books, got my turning point, and I learned so much from him.

hi vince! the biggest turning point in my life was when i became a mother. It is such a fact that for most women life begins and ends with as she became a mom. "life begins"- a new journey; priorities in life will definitely change, "life ends"- like me i gave up almost everything for my daughter-job, time, etc. well i'm not saying women will totally be deprive of having her own life but for me i think about my family first before i focus on myself. i've got a lot of plans for my life still but i think those will have to wait until i know my child is independently responsible.
