Reflections On The Anniversary Of Bringing My Husband Home

Thankfully in May of 2004 I had enough sense to know when I was lucky.

You see, I had been building my network marketing business and had gone to the “nth” degree doing everything I was told to do and then some.

But I hit a brick wall. A big brick wall… I ran out of people to talk to.

The smartest thing I did was to ignore the advice of my upline and take matters into my own hands. I went on a search to find solutions.


Renegade System Coach, Curt Johnson

I stumbled upon Curt Johnson (who is now my Renegade System Coaching Director) and I was smart enough to know when I was lucky. 

I could see he had skills that I didn’t. And I knew enough that skills are far more important than any opportunity.

Thank you Robert Kiyosaki.

From there I went on a rampage studying anything and everything I could to learn marketing.

This has served me very well.

Because while I was learning and applying marketing, my husband’s windshield replacement business did a slow death spiral. Until finally he was pumping fuel into jets out at our local Minneapolis airport

But then something miraculous happened.


All my years of studying and application finally gave me a significant breakthrough in my business.

In a three month period starting July 9, 2006 I was able to scale my business from $2,000 a month to over $90,000 a month in three short months.

Life changing?
Most definitely.


The resignation letter is dated September 7, 2006.

Today is September 8, 2011 — five years later.

That same month September, 2006 I brought my husband home.

He has been working with me ever since. A dream come true. And that is the same month we incorporated 80/20 Marketing, Inc with my eldest son, Isaiah.

This is an even bigger dream come true. In fact, I never saw it coming. (He did.)


The moral of the story

I chose to dig my heels in and develop out my skills. Lead by example.

The result?
My family joined me. :)

This can happen for you too.

They saw a doer. Someone who sets out to do something with a forehead made of flint.


Following that….
The Renegade Movement.

I’m extremely grateful to be able to lead and to change people’s lives for the better.

It is my five year anniversary of incorporating with my family.

By the way.

The word corpus means body. We are a whole unit. Dedicated to a mission to change people’s lives.

Thanks all for being a part of my life.

Now it’s your turn.

What will you do?

Will you study, learn and apply?

The gift is yours.

There is a massive shift economy underway and YOU get to be a part of it.

Gratefully yours,

  1. Ann

    That was very inspiring indeed. I am in the midst of doing that to have my wife being able to quit her job so that she can have more time with our two children. I am confident that day is not too far away.

    There are many parents who are in the same situation and want to achieve the same things. Many of them need help and that is where we can all add value & help them to create their desire lifestyle. This is critical important when the economy is unstable and many people are expected to lose their job.

    I just have a discussion on the above matter awhile ago with my wife & two kds during dinner. We are all looking forward to enjoy a more fulfilling life soon.

    • Thank you Alvin!

      I hope very much that you are able to bring your wife home to help raise your children. And that you are seeing that in your future. That makes a difference!

      Thank you so much for stopping by.

      Keep me posted on your family!


  2. Ms. Sieg
    Thank you for your words of encouragement and your willingness to help others. Please take a look at my website http://www.thehousebythesideoftheroad.com. Have hit a “cement wall” and I am hoping maybe you can help me rise above it. The book my site is about was written by my mother of whom I am quite proud of. As her only child I am committed to doing everything I can to support her and the fascinating piece of literature she has created from the heart and spread the word of peace to a global community. Thank you in advance for your kind attention and I look forward to a favorable response. In peace where together all things are possible.

  3. Ann, your business reflects core values I strive to reflect in mine as well: integrity, hard work, faith, honesty, commitment, respect, and, of course … love of family. It has been such a joy and privilege getting to know you, Brian, Isaiah, and now David. Thank you for modeling servant leadership. We in Daily Marketing Coach are so very, very glad you had a “burning desire” to get your hubby home. Little did you know how many lives you would be touching when you decided to act on that desire.

    Bless you and the entire Sieg clan!
