Profile: Hello Everyone, My name is Michael Barrett and I am a Mentor, Composer, Producer and Entrepreneur. My passion, mission and purpose in life is in coaching and mentoring people to be successful in their own businesses especially in the network marketing industry and direct sales.
A Little About ME:
Born and raised in Massachusetts (USA) I was raised in a wonderful home as one of six boys. I also had the privilege of having a live in grandmother who was nothing less than wonderful, loving, and a BIG worker. My mom was a very special person who was truly dedicated and committed to serving her family. Even in the leanest of times, we always ate well, My dad owned his own business. In startling contrast to our home of nine people, he was raised in a single parent ome with his mom, (our live in grandmother), and his one bother Joseph, who later became his business partner. In looking back, this upbringing definitely taught me one thing, a strong work ethic and how to be persistent in owning your own business with all the risks involved. A common definition of insanity is to continue to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results! Many people who own and operating their own business is kind of like that. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You have to develop a strong faith that things will be okay in the face of every adversity and economic trend. It seemed like having an abundance of cash flow was overly dependent on the state of the economy at any given moment. …Sound Familiar?… Even in the best the times, the odds were sometimes stacked against you. Well you get the picture:
In spite of my wonderful upbringing, I later came to realize, like many of you, that the vast majority of people are trained and led to believe that hey have very little control over their lot and life and carry on their daily affairs thinking that opportunity has passed them by or was never there in the first place. We have all heard the old adage from many of our parents, teachers, mentors and peers: Get a “Good Education,” a “Good Job,” and You will be Set For Life. Unfortunately many of the Blessed Souls and Good Living People who choose to embrace such a mindset continue to live a life without a lot of flex with a world view that predisposes them and often sustains an ongoing lifestyle marked by limiting beliefs and lack of vision and passion for Abundance. Something that I knew early on which became crystal clear in latter years is that I needed to create my own reality and forge my own destiny. This kind of attitude can best be illustrated by the achievements of athletes who strive to break world records like that of Roger Bannister who in May of 1954, was the first to run a mile under 4 minutes. Once he broke the record, some twenty thousand runners have followed in his footsteps to accomplish the same goal or have surpassed him. Prior to his outstanding achievement, no one in the world thought it was possible, but he had a vision and a passion that changed every thing. Now I ask you, after posing these same questions to myself. What would you like to accomplish? Do you have unfulfilled Dreams? What would you like to achieve, and what is your game plan and strategy to do so and Make It Happen?
After college I continued my quest to make a difference and went on to do four more years of graduate studies in Theology and Pastoral Counseling. Although I had many wonderful musical skills, I felt the need to embrace a mission to serve the Church in its Ministry and Pastoral Outreach. This truly was a work of love and I cherish every minute that I served in that leadership capacity and was touched by many of the leaders I worked with and the people who I served.
A few years ago, after prayerful reflection and having become the principle care giver for my mom, Evelyn Shields (Life long Musician & Vocalist) who suffered a massive right brain stroke, my interests turned to the development of my entrepreneurial skills. As a musician, composer and producer of several audio CDs, I was no stranger to marketing. I immersed my self in the ongoing and ever changing world of marketing strategies with a special emphasis in marketing on the internet. This was a major mid-life shift, as I was very successful in what I was doing, but was often times overwhelmed with the reality that I had very little control to form and reform an institution that seemed to come down on the side of mediocrity and limiting beliefs, as ironic as that may sound. But like many institutions, steeped in tradition, such institutions choose not to embrace technologies that could assist them in becoming more life giving with a vision for expanding their horizons that would enable them to become landmarks of Excellence Personified through Leadership Development.. The Christian Church is truly an organization endowed with many wonderful men and women in history, but somehow did not seem to be the best fit for me to develop and incorporate my expanding vision and passion to empower all who desire abundance, financial independence, prosperity; that is facilitated and sustained by an integrated lifestyle that embraces Love, Family, Health & Wellness, Personal Achievement, Self Mastery, a Mastermind Culture, Dynamic Spirituality and Team Synergy.
In spite of all the peaks and valleys I experienced on this 25 year roller coaster ride, serving in a leadership capacity, I have always been able to keep a positive attitude about life. Although the work that I was doing was very fulfilling, my greater need for independence and the need to expand my horizons and develop a dynamic vision for a comprehensive lifestyle did not jive in the community settings where I found myself. The system was too subjective to the personal whims and limiting beliefs of the various leaders who came and went. In spite of ther many virtues, my assessment is that there was a lack of personal management and attentiveness on the part of Church Officials in the areas of money, power, and Leadership Development which would often lead many people, which included me, feeling very confused and discouraged. There was seldom a feeling of complimentality whereby we we could lead in a spirit of true partnership. For some, this system works very well. It wasn’t until I found the right situation that allowed me to find my true North and have control over my own ability to obtain ABUNDANCE and a deeper sense of peace within and the world around me. I discovered the power and freedom of owning my own life. I am now able to serve countless tens of thousands, worldwide, with a servant’s heart. I have much to be grateful for, especially new friends and fellow entrepreneurs who share my passion for abundant life and want to share all of this with someone like you so you and your family can have all that is available for the asking and the choosing. As the late and beloved Jim Rhon, prolific author, life coach and world renowned trainer for personal development had often said: "Success Attracts Opportunity" and I believe that this is your time to choose success and choose to "live life to the fullness with abundance." We all deserve to live the life we desire!
Who I’d like to Meet…
Like minded people who desire abundance of love, health, wealth and friends. My passion is helping people improve life in any and all ways and to create FREEDOM in their lives. I discovered that helping, teaching and mentoring people who desire abundance in life is a rewarding experience.
By paying close attention to the market trends in the Network Marketing Industry I find myself being constantly educated and sharing this knowledge with others. Many people ask why I give this information for free? It’s simple… There are many people in the industry whom have experienced failure multiple times and think that it is their fault. I experienced that same failure until I found the untimate Attraction Marketing System which is an answer to prayer and has turned struggling with my MLM into Total Success. I Look Forward to speaking with you.
