Twenty year old Michael Jennings is testament to the old adage
‘What a BIG difference a year can make!’
Twelve months ago Michael Jennings was just an ordinary teenager, “I was just living for the moment and hadn’t really given the future a second thought” explained Michael.
“I had no idea of what I wanted to do with my life. I didn’t know who I wanted to be and I didn’t know what I wanted to do.”
Like many people his age, nineteen-year-old Michael was living paycheck to paycheck. “I didn’t have a savings plan and I squandered most of my money on silly boys toys and nights out partying with friends every weekend,” confessed Michael.
In May 2013, Michael’s Mum and Dad, David and Sandra Jennings, invited Michael to go to Hawaii for a family holiday, but there was just one condition…
“The condition was that I attend a business event (Wealth Warrior) hosted by some guy called Pat Mesiti. I dismissed it immediately – the last thing I wanted to do was go to Hawaii to sit in a room and listen to a ‘Mindset Expert’ talking about how to make money!” laughed Michael.
But just two days before his Mum and Dad were leaving for Hawaii something happened that made Michael re-evaluate his life.
“I was working in forty degree heat on building site when I dropped a sledge hammer on my foot. I was in agony and as my foot throbbed in pain I couldn’t help but feel outraged. ‘Life has to be better than this!!!’ I thought to myself.”
Still licking his wounds, Michael swallowed his pride and called his Mum, asking her to book him in for Pat’s event in Hawaii. Two days later he was on his way to Hawaii – “by far the best decision I have ever made!” exclaimed Michael.
Attending Wealth Warrior in May 2013 catapulted Michael forward in life in ways that he could not have even imagined.
“This year I acquired my first investment property in February 2014 – one month before my twentieth birthday. I also started my own online business and have learned how to share trade. My share trading accounts are making a very healthy 14% return per month – not bad for a guy who didn’t even have a savings plan twelve months ago, hey?” says Michael with a cheeky grin.
“Pat has taught me how to utilize everything I have today to make a better tomorrow. I’d probably go so far as to say that I’ve learned hot to make more money in the last year since attending Pat’s events than I did in the previous ten years at school!”
So what’s next for young Michael? “Becoming part of the Mesiti community has taught me to think big. I now have goals and a picture of where I want to be in 5 years time. My five-year plan is to fire my boss, have one million in the bank, two automated businesses making passive income and three investment properties.
