Welcome to my official blog!

Hey there.  I’m Brian Pray and I am honored that you took the time to come and check out my blog. Thank You!

I know this may sound corny but I put this blog together because I absolutely love helping people and I hope that I provide some content that you find useful.

You see, I believe that everyone deserves to have a life that they enjoy.  Unfortunately I see way too many people just going through the motions and watching their lives pass them right by.  Maybe it’s because they think they’re stuck; or worse, they might just think that what they are doing is what they are meant to do or what they are supposed  to do because of some insane limiting belief that has been ingrained in their thinking.

This blog was designed to help you, empower you and inspire you to live life to the fullest.  To live a life without limits! To enjoy life and most importantly, to be happy!

A little bit about me…

I grew up in New Jersey with my Mother, Father and Sister. To be honest, I really had a great childhood. Seriously, I had a lot of fun and like many boys growing up, I thought I was on the fast track to the fame and stardom that accompany major league baseball players.

Unfortunately that dream didn’t pan out.  As a result, I ended up at Montclair State University where I spent five years studying the ever so thrilling subject of Accounting.  I can’t remember who gave me this wonderful advice – or why I took it, but someone said, “Brian, you’re good in math and really good with numbers.  You should be an accountant.”

“Uh, okay,” I said.  Sounded good at the time. (What did I know?)  Math was easy and hey accountants made a lot of money, right?  Nah, they counted a lot of other people’s money… but I didn’t know that.

So I got my education, graduated and became an accountant.  I did exactly what I was supposed to do – exactly what I was taught to do.

I was MISERABLE. Even worse, I was miserable and I did nothing about it, for a long time.

Time for a change…

I muddled through my life for 12 years as an accountant before I decided that a change was needed.  So, I decided to find a new profession, a new job.  Not learning from my past, I went back to school and soon after, entered the wonderful world of Information Technology.

I was happy with the change, at first.  It was new and certainly more exciting than accounting but I still wasn’t happy.  I searched for an answer and I was starting to learn that it wasn’t so much the job that I was unhappy with but rather the environment I was working in.

I spent another six years of my life living a life that just wasn’t for me.  In total, that was 18 years that I had given up.  I was 36 at the time – that was half my life.  It was time for a change, again…

What to do, what to do…

Fortunately years earlier I had read Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”.  It was the book that got me thinking that I needed to change me and my way of thinking if I wanted a different life.  I kept reading Kiyosaki’s books and in one he mentioned that if he had it to do all over again he would start in network marketing.

So, Network Marketing would be the answer.  I found an opportunity that I thought would be the be all and end all. Well, not only did things not quite work out as I had planned but to make matters worse,  the company I was working with changed everything about itself and basically pulled the rug right out from under me.

Although it was frustrating, it was a great learning experience. I still knew that network marketing was the single best business model for the “ordinary guy”.  I just needed to find a new opportunity. (Click here to learn more about that.)

It wasn’t all bad…

Now I don’t want to give you the impression that my entire life was miserable.  Quite the contrary.  During that 18 year span I had the absolute best moments of my life too.

I got married (to a wonderful woman who still puts up with me). And, we had three kids who are the absolute joy of my life.  Does it get any better than that?

I was only miserable in that job.  BUT, that misery did creep into my personal life – as it always seems to.

Fortunately it is never too late to make a change.

Thanks!
