About Lawrence Bland
Who Am I?
Hi Everyone! Thanks for visiting my FaceBook profile! My name is Lawrence (Larry) Bland from Houston, Texas. I am originally from New York, later Moved to Maryland, and then went to college at James Madison University in Virginia and graduated with a BS Degree in Psychology and Communications.
Why Am I Here?
You might ask yourself, “Why would a six figure income earning Mortgage Banker/Realtor be interested in marketing on the Internet?” To answer that question: I started this Blog to network with other people who are as interested in Internet marketing as I am! I can see the present and the future. Both say the Internet is the present and the future of all business. Think about it, do you know of anyone who does not have an email address, a cell phone, a twitter account?
Internet users – according to the latest statistics (http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm), Internet users make up 1.6 Billion people worldwide. That’s almost ¼ the world’s entire population! Aside from those staggering statistics, it’s really been a lot of fun so far, and I have made many great contacts. I hope I can get everyone as motivated and excited as I am about building their online business and becoming successful while working from home. It can be done so don’t give up!
Originally, my dream was to be an NFL Pro Football player. Unfortunately, when my knee blew out in college, that dream came to crashing halt. Back in the 80’s, health technology was nowhere near what it is today. Today, an athlete blows out a knee and six weeks later they’re up and walking again. Back then ,it was a career ender. I have no regrets. I got experience in college that I would not trade for anything, and most importantly, I received a top-notch college education. After graduating, I worked in the food service industry as a manager for a national chain restaurant. The pay was good, as was the stability of the job. But the hours were horrendous. I lived, ate and slept my job; there was no balance. So later, with the help of my father, I started a computer firm. I received several contracts from the DEA, DOD, AT & T and several others. Later, I had to make the decision to move to Beaumont, Texas to be closer to help out my grandmother. When she originally moved back to TX, two of my great uncles and my great aunt were still living, as well as my grandfather. Eventually, they all passed away and she was left alone. She did not drive — she never had to, because she had lived in NY, and you don’t even need a car there. I was the only one in the family who was in any position to relocate, so I turned over my computer company to my cousin and moved to Beaumont, Texas. I always had the entrepreneurial mindset so I thought, “Heck, I did it once. I can do it again.”
Real Estate and Finance had always intrigued me, so I started my own Mortgage Company. During the entire time, from college until a few months ago, I had “dabbled” in network marketing. I have been involved with companies like Amway, Pre-paid Legal, Mia Bella, Limu, Monavie, to name a few. I never really made much money at any of them. This was through no fault of these companies. They are all great companies, and many people, I am sure, are making tons of money with them. I would probably attribute my lack of success with them to two things: First, I never really treated any of them like a true business. They were always in the “hobby” or “second income potential” category for me. The second reason, which is probably the biggest reason, was that I could never get comfortable with what is termed the “old school” MLM marketing methods. You know, where you make a list of 100 to 200 names of friends and families, then call on them all, setup meetings and appointments, and try to get them to see things the way you do. My thinking has always been that, if someone is not actively seeking your advice or a business opportunity, then you’re wasting your time and alienating them as well. In my Mortgage and Real Estate business, people have always sought me out for the services I provide, and that is how I run my Internet business as well. Of course, I have and still do some traditional forms of advertising, but probably 75% to 80% is by way of reputation and referral. About two months ago, a friend of mine, Vernon Nate begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting, whom I met online, introduced me to a very new and revolutionary marketing system that has literally blown the roof off all of my previous marketing efforts. The best thing about it now is that, for the first time in my MLM history, people are seeking me out for help with their businesses. Through the grace of God, a lot of trial and error, and a fantastic and revolutionary marketing system, I have been able to prosper online. The Internet is no longer just the future. It is the here and now. If you don’t have an Internet presence and are not actively marketing online, to put it in a nutshell, you won’t be in business long.
