MaryKCFO at HomebusinessTo.com, Inc.
My name is MaryK, The Amish Butterfly. I am the coowner and Director of multiple thriving online businesses. As a mother of five wonderful children I will never forget the moment when I woke up to how many people depended on the decisions I make, how many people were watching, then modeling my life decisions.
I remember when my first child was born, the overwhelming feeling of responsibility and the burning desire to provide a better life for this beautiful little person demanded radical change. All that I’d become is all that I could teach him. Looking in the mirror with tears in my eyes, I knew that I had to become more, so that I could model a life outside of the cocoon I had spun. My mentor had taught me, “in order to have more, you must become more.” “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.” I knew I had to begin with self-discovery, pushing forward to the life I wanted my children to experience.
My goal is to show you how you can leverage our systems and relationship building strategies to create the LIFESTYLE YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED OF. Join our community of believers, change-makers, and leaders who are changing the way we do business globally.
The founding philosophies of my companies are rooted in a desire to better the lives of women by empowering them with opportunities that aid self-expression and by providing the flexibility, resources and training needed to build a career and better life.
The billions of products acquired online demand a streamlined, efficient, and user-friendly system where people can shop and receive rewards for referring others. Online incentive-driven shopping has become the new standard. Those companies who offer their customer referral rewards significantly out perform those who choose other marketing methods.
Daven MichaelsBusiness Success Builder, Pioneering ‘Growth Hacker’, Marketing Maestro, Global Lifestyle Entrepreneur
I’m Daven Michaels, founder of 123 Companies. I’ve been an entrepreneur since the age of 15, that’s over 30 years now. During this time I stumbled across a business formula that I used to turn multiple diverse business ventures into extremely successful businesses, including a few multiple-million dollar home runs.
I was very fortunate to have crossed paths with a very smart individual at a very young age. He took me under his wing, he mentored me and guided me. I find myself applying those same lessons and principles even today.
In 2006 I started 123Employee, a virtual employee center in the Philippines. I started with one employee and today we have hundreds of employees operating from several managed facilities. In 2011 I used the power of public speaking to cast a wider net and reach even more entrepreneurs all over the world.
In the same year we started offering higher level marketing, business consulting and coaching services. This grander desire to help people started in 2009 when a friend suggested that I teach others how to achieve success. This ignited a flame that has grown and grown over the years.
However, teaching alone was not enough. I believe that talk is cheap these days. There are many people who teach business and marketing, yet very few understand the trials and tribulations business owners are facing in today’s economy.
My commitment to you is simple, through the 123 companies and our events, we will help you save money, make more money, grow your business, get your time back and ultimately create the lifestyle you desire.
