Chula Vista, CA, United States, 2006/07/23 - When he's not flying helicopters in Iraq or Afghanistan US Navy Pilot, Mark Archer, is showing others how to start their own business.
Walking in from a recent training flight, Lieutenant Mark Archer is not your typical businessman. Dressed in an olive-green flight suit at first glance he looks like many other Navy Pilots assertively and confidently walking from their grey Navy helicopters. The difference though, is that for the past year Mark has been quietly assisting people all over the country build their own online travel business.
In a small room filled with aspiring business owners and entrepeneurs, Archer says, "I study some of the most successful and wealthiest people. The one trait these leaders have in common is that they are all committed to action. Poor people want to be paid now. Rich people understand the meaning of Serve Now to be paid later."
"Ten or fifteen years ago, it usually would take thousands of dollars for someone to start their own business," Archer states, "Thanks to the Information Age and the Internet I can now show someone how to start their business for less than $500."
Managing his assets and building his business in his spare time during weekdays and weekends the 32 year old father of three launched a private real estate investment company two years ago. "We’ll always be investing in real estate. We've done extremely well with our investments. Real Estate is slow moving which I like, " Mark says. With a little-boy-grin he continues, "I like Real Estate for the same reason I love flying helicopters. It moves slow enough to help me realize what I'm forgetting."
As Mark watched his local San Diego, CA real estate market cool for the last year, he looked towards other ventures and businesses. Armed with capital from his real estate business, he looked at many different opportunities. "I looked at all kinds of investments from soda vending machines to oil and gas fields. I finally found this great company based in Alton, IL called YTB International, a leading provider of internet-based travel services. I checked out their financials, personally met the company founders and loved the idea of discounted travel including cruises for twenty five bucks a day. I was really inspired by the company’s vision."
Without any marketing background and very little sales experience Mark joned the company as an independent business owner and marketing representative and rose to the highest-paid position of the company within six months. "There were some frustrating times in the beginning. I wasn’t a very good marketer but I now believe every company, every organization, every business owner has to learn and grow before they succeed. While I consider this process learning, some often consider it "failing" and quit on themselves and their dreams. YTB never gave up on me and for that I’m grateful. YTB has given me the ability to assist other people earn financial freedom. My motto is: Give and you feed for a day. Teach and you feed for a lifetime."
Mark Archer is a US Naval Aviator and successful author, speaker and mentor. After serving in the US Navy for eight years, he is now the owner of two corporations operating five businesses and is a top representative for YTB International, a PUBC top 30 American company.
