Hey, it’s Richelle.
I wanted to take a minute and introduce myself, and address the question you are probably asking: “Who is Richelle Shaw and what is MDE Nation”
Truth be told I’m actually a pretty normal girl, who went through a point early in my life where I decided that working a 9 – 5 job was not for me.
I won’t bore you with all the details about me, but here’s the abbreviated version.
At one point in my youth, I was dating three men in three different states and I had a HUGE telephone bill (don’t judge me) :-). At the same time, I was selling advertising for the “Welcome Neighbor Program”. At the local networking event, the then VP of the telephone company offered me a job. Working for a telephone company + 3 men in three different states – large telephone bill = WIN! I was promoted five times in six years. Then bought the company from my boss.
Everything was going extremely well when the incredible tragedy of the World trade Center changed my life (as well as thousands of other people). I LOST everything because I was not serious about the business. I did not save any of the profits.
After 9-11 happened, there was no mail for almost 3 weeks, and the meter was running on my telephone company. Before I knew it, I was in DEBT over $3million. So, I was forced to file bankruptcy. One night I was talking to one of my best friends, and I said “I am going to figure this out for myself, no matter what it takes.
Well, it wasn’t exactly easy to “figure it out”. I spent the next few months reading a lot of books, listening to “motivational tapes”, going to seminars, and generally trying out a lot of crazy ideas that I was learning.
The first “break” came when I found an incredible mentor that changed my life and changed the way the I approached my business. I was able to implement the strategies and effectively MARKET and SELL my way out of the bankruptcy. Within 4 months, I had rebuilt my business and by the end of the year, I had my multi-million dollar business again! I basically got a PHD in down and dirty, focused, marketing and I am here to show YOU how!
I am the founder of MDE Nation, president of the National Association For Moms In Business, and creator of “The Million Dollar Equation”. I’m also the author of critically acclaimed book, “How to Build A Million Dollar Business in Las Vegas Without the Casinos” and the best selling book, “The Million Dollar Equation“.
As you already know quite well, there are a lot of people running around trying to convince you that they have all the answers on how to grow your business.
Well, unfortunately for you, I don’t have ALL the answers.
But I do believe that I have SOME of the answers (and I think the answers I have are pretty important).
The question you’re probably asking is “Why should I believe what Richelle says?”
And my answer to you is that you SHOULDN’T just blindly believe me.
In fact, I would recommend that you approach my teachings with a healthy skepticism.
I want you to TRY what you learn from me.
I think you’ll find that I’m not interested in things that don’t work. I like stuff that gets results.
And BIG results, at that.
Only after you’ve seen that this stuff is REAL do I want you to “believe” me.
I’m a person, and as a person I have my flaws. But I also think my programs are the best in the world, and I stand behind them. I honestly hope you get a TON of value from them.
