So, who is Tom Challan…
Tom and his lovely wife, Kim, and I have been in the home-based business industry for 18 years (actually, a combined total of 38 years because Kim got started 2 years before he did).

Many of those years were incredibly profitable; with up to six and seven figure incomes. Tom, Kim and their family were living the “lifestyle” in their early thirties; they had four beautiful little girls, a big house in San Diego, luxury vehicles and they traveled like rock stars. It was awesome for them…but unfortunately not for our bank accounts. The more money they made, the more they spent.

Tom and Kim were living WAY above their means, and they quickly learned that success doesn’t always last forever.

As the result of some bad business decisions, their income was disappearing like quicksand. This eventually led to what they refer to now as “The Crash of 2003.”

That, was the year they went broke.

Tom recalls the following story… “A few days before Christmas, we heard a loud crash in our driveway. My heart sank into my chest knowing what it was. I remember the following moments in slow motion… I felt a tug at my shirt; it was my oldest daughter, who was only four-years-old at the time. I looked into her eyes as she asked, “Daddy, where are they taking our car?”

That day, both of our cars were repossessed. Not only were our children anxiously anticipating presents from Santa (that we didn’t have any money for), we had no car and we were inches away from losing everything.

We had to come to grips with the truth; some serious changes needed to take place. Realizing this, my wife spoke the words I never thought she would say: “Tom, you need to get a real job.”

Wow… that hurt.

I had never had a “real” job. From the time I was a teenager, finding ways to make money was easy; mowing lawns, waiting tables, starting a recycling company in college, etc. That was IT. I didn’t know how to fill out a resume to save my life…I didn’t even know how to spell “resume”.

At this point, there was one thought running through my brain: “Dear God, I have to feed my family. What am I going to do?”

I had to do something…anything and anywhere. Over the next year, I ended up in Temecula, CA selling landscape aeration door-to-door. Ever heard of Temecula, CA? During the summer, it never cools off. I was working ten-hour days in 120 degree heat.

One of the most humbling moments of my life happened during this period when I knocked on the door of a guy who was making six-figures in my last company. I had personally recruited him. He opened the door, scrunched up his face and said, “Tom? What in the world are you doing? You’re on my doorstep with an aeration tee shirt on! Is this a joke?” Embarrassed, I started making excuses, saying “Well, I’m just trying this thing out part time.”

Obviously, that wasn’t true. I was totally broke and desperate to make ends meet. I had given up on the home-based business industry… and here was this guy, completely thriving off of it.”

How did Tom go from making millions in the home business industry to being completely burned out… tired… depressed… afraid… broke… and worst of all, door-knocking?

It wasn’t the industry that stopped working for him… he stopped working for it.

For ten years, Tom had been trained incorrectly on how to succeed.

The result? It was sucking his life away.

Tom had no life away from his business. he had been trained to believe that in order to make it BIG, I needed to work 7 days a week, recruit – recruit – recruit, do all the training, all the conference calls, set up all the advertising, take every call and every email from new recruits any time of day or night, and his family, his health and his hobbies were his second priority.

Only after he became financially independent could he work less and enjoy life.

Basically, Tom was running five or six companies all at the same time and he was the focus of everything. Tom had made the business and everyone’s success depend upon HIM.
Tom says… “I used to sit up at three and four in the morning, stressed out, thinking about all the new people who got into my business that week. I felt like I was responsible for their success. I got caught in this trap as a leader; I thought the definition of a leader was “DO EVERYTHING”. If you are a leader, you probably know what I am talking about.

Tom and Kim are now on a mission to help people who are new to the network marketing industry, to show them some things to AVOID so you can enjoy life and be unusually successful… without feeling like you have to sell your life to your business.

In January 2004, Tom was exposed to the truth.

He learned that it was possible to have a life and make money. He learned that it was possible to build a wildly successful business with a system that wasn’t predicated on him training absolutely everyone that he enrolled. He learned for the first time how to take the spot light off himself and simply outsource, so all that he had to do was focus on one simple, productive, money-making task each day… RECRUIT.

Armed with this knowledge Tom was able to enroll 500 representatives into his business within the following twelve months. In fact, that next year he earned over $211,000. They became the #1 income earners of their company in record time; meanwhile, their 500 reps turned into 40,000. Following Tom’s example, many of those individuals also became top income earners.

Join us this Friday for our interview with Tom and discover why he and Kim believe… “If this was possible for us, this can be a reality for you, too?”

We are honored to have Tom be able to join us and invest some of his time with us as our guest on the show this week.

    This is what I call a true example of what it takes to win in this industry. Here is someone who rose to the top early in his career only to fall and rise right back up again. it reminds me of Donald Trump. I am a firm believer in ” Winners never quit and loosers never win” philosophy.
