Joel Watson-Brown... Team Coordinator - January 2014

"I first saw ACN back in 2005 as a teenager, with my brother Ben, and thought it sounded incredible to get paid every time people used their fixed line phones. I got started straight away, basically just thinking of the money and nothing else.

I had always been a very introvert person, keeping to my close circle of friends, so when I tried to acquire customers and IBOs, it really put me way out of my comfort zone to approach people. I got scared and uncomfortable and immediately gave up, assuming it just wasn't for me, I knew that the system worked. I just didn't think I could do it!

I did an apprenticeship and started my career as an Electrician. Living week to week, struggling to pay the bills, I fell into the common trap of thinking that if I just kept working hard at my job, eventually I could save up a good amount and be able to do more of the things I enjoyed and take more time off.
Over the years, Ben kept me up to date with what was going on and kept giving me information to look at - which I just ignored and told him that it was for him, not for me. In February 2013, Ben asked me to come and watch him get promoted to the position of Team Coordinator in Brisbane at a Regional Event and that he had bought me a ticket. I thought it was fair enough that I would go along and support my brother - having no interest in looking at the business for myself again. When I went along, I was blown away!

I don't remember what was said, but something sparked in me and I got hit with the message that if I wanted more out of life, if I wanted to achieve success and gain more freedom, something had to change. I had to change. My fear of approaching people and staying in my comfort zone was holding me back! If I stayed where I was as a person, I was never going to get to where I wanted to be. That night I couldn't sleep, and the next day I got straight onto Ben and told him I wanted to get started again right away. I haven't looked back since.

Over the past 10 months, I have learnt so much, and developed skills that I never would have if it wasn't for ACN. I've gained confidence in myself and learnt how to be a leader. I talk in front of crowds and train people now, which is something that would have been my deepest fear a year ago! You meet so many amazing people from all walks of life in this business, and I have made a lot of new friends. The best thing is getting to work with the people you want to work with. I couldn't have done this on my own, it's a team effort and when everyone works together, it makes things happen so much faster.

I also wouldn't have made it this far without the continuous support from my brother Ben. He is my mentor and a true leader, always going out of his way to help build our team.
I know that I still have so much more to learn and I love having the chance to be able to give this gift to other people and watching them grow and change their lives for the better. Being able to get paid residually on services people use whether you are awake or asleep is truly a blessing and you should never take this amazing opportunity for granted.

Don't let your mindset hold you back, because it is the only thing standing in your way. This business is all about paying it forward and helping other people, and the more people you help, the more you will achieve yourself. If you come into this business with a selfish attitude, you won't succeed!"
