SERIOUSLY...

"SERIOUSLY...

I BARELY GRADUATED HIGHSCHOOL!

I WAS'T SURE HOW I WAS GOING TO SURVIVE THIS..."

In the midst of his grief, Eric wasn't sure HOW he was going to survive this loss.

It was sudden... It was unexpected... and it left more questions than answers...

But, when Zoi's friends asked Eric "What do we do with this?"  he knew he had to create a pathway not only for himself, but for them as well. 

Without realizing it at first, Eric created a support structure for himself, and then shared that with Zoi's friends and others.

He then began to find new ways to continuously find support, get back up, and connect with others,  which helped him cope so that he could continue to carry on and help others...
 

After realizing I AM A FUNNEL BUILDER, I was able to earn a Two Comma Club award building a funnel for someone else's offer instead of my own! This lead to the Creation of Funnel Builders where Greg now shares his knowledge of BUILDING FUNNELS with all of our Certified FUNNEL BUILDERS!
