Just Who Is This Ron Smalley Guy?

      "When the going gets tough, the TOUGH get going!" 

If that describes you, then you will be interested in
what I have  decided  to do just in the past few months.

I seem to be one of those people who is always looking 
for  something exciting or fun to do. 

My parents were sort of like that.

Mom and Dad decided to go to Africa as missionaries
soon after they  graduated from college in the mid 1920s. 
(That was at the  beginning of the Model-T Ford car era.)  
The Central Congo was pretty primitive back then and they 
had a lot to learn.  But they did it.

I spent 5 years (1945-1950) with them in the Congo and
went to school at a protestant boarding school which was
located two days and two nights (on the train) away from
where my parents 
were stationed. 

I had started with one year of correspondence school and
finished 
with 4 years of high school at the boarding school which 
offered 
only one year of a lecture class in general science topics.
Of course 
there were the usual subjects in addition to the Science
class.  
We had plenty of classes in the usual stuff. And Bible Study
was 
mandatory each year.  

We would occasionally talk with each other about what we would
do 
with our lives and some of the guys said they wanted to be
doctors. 
But not me.  I didn't want anything to do with all that
"blood and 
guts stuff".

On the way back to the United States I had plenty of time to think
and wonder what it would be like in college in the States 
while my parents would be going back to the Congo.

I had applied to study Pre-Engineering.

I thought about that and decided it would be too boring! 

Then I asked myself:"What would NOT be boring?"  Strangely
the idea 
of Doctoring, medical doctoring, popped into my head!

I had never thought of THAT before!!

So I started Pre-Med after my parents dropped me off at the
college dorm and waved good-bye saying: "We'll see you in 5 years.
Good luck and God bless!" 

I saw Mom and Dad next when they returned to the States 5 years
later and they decided it made sense to live with me in off campus
housing in Ann Arbor where I would be starting my second year of
medical school 
at the University of Michigan.  That was 1955.

Fast forward to 1957 when, after flunking out of medical school and 
being automatically drafted into the US Army, I left my school teacher 
wife in  Ann Arbor and entered Basic Training at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO.

When the Army learned I had completed 3 years of medical school they 
decided 
I should be a medical lab technician. I was assigned to a Field 
Army Hospital stationed at Ft. Sam Houston, TX. Part of a Strategic Army 
Corps mobile field hospital ready to 
be deployed to any place in the world.

We had one "Alert" to be sent to Chile after a devastating earthquake  
(9.5 on the Richter in May 1960) struck in that country. But we never went.

During my time in the Army I served under some doctors and I would 
ask each one to send a letter of recommendation back to the UofM Medical
School, which they did, and that helped get me back in 
to repeat the third 
year and finally 
graduate in 1962 with my MD.

I started flight training in 1955 - while I should have been studying my medical
books - and finally got my Private Pilot license in 1957 while in the Army. 
(Really cheap flying clubs are one of the perks of being in 
military service.)

Only an idiot would waste time learning to fly while in medical school!
 
But it WAS fun and I DID have a good time...

After I started medical practice as a family physician (1964) I discovered I was
eligible to receive a few thousand dollars as part of my GI benefits.  So, naturally,
I decided to get my Commercial, Instrument, Multi-engine and Glider ratings. 
After I nearly crashed and 
killed myself, wife and three kids in a botched 
landing 
attempt at a strange airport. 

 

I quit flying in 1980.
 

After 30 years in the practice of family medicine we decided to move to 
Colorado to spend the "golden years".

     (The "Golden Years" are when you have more time than gold. Your hair loses
      gold and gains silver  and you get the "Furniture Disease" - you know - that's
      when your chest seems to want to fall into your drawers).

With retirement rapidly approaching I decided to investigate online marketing as
something fun, interesting and potentially helpful in building up my financial reserves. 
 
Like many of you who read this, I bought my first computer when there was no such
thing as online marketing.  And like most of you, I had a long learning curve after  
the 
various 
"business opportunities" 
started s
howing up.

I got serious in 2006 and have done a lot of trial and error and spent quite 
a bit 
more $$$ than I should have.

Now, here it is, 2014 and I have learned a lot. Such as:  

    *  People do business with people they know, like and trust.

  • The product doesn't matter much as long as it is honest and you USE it.

  • Training is extremely important.

  • Video recordings are the best way to train thousands of people.

  • Cash flow always starts at zero.
  •  
  • Mindset is the most important factor when starting out. 

  • You will give up if you do not take your training seriously.
  •  
  • When you give up you lose w-a-a-ay over 99% of the time. 

  • The only chance of winning is to be persistent and patient.
  •  
  • I am much happier winning than I am when losing. 

  • I would rather learn from people who have done what I want to do.

  • At least 90% of what shows up in your email in-box is trash.

    Perhaps you have a few gems of wisdom you can add to this list.
    I make mistakes less often now. And I love to help other people  

    succeed at this industry. I do not know all the answers but 
    I may
    be  able to help other people benefit by all the trial and 
    error I

    The best choice of excellent programs I have 
    found  so far is ...
     
                    
  •  
  •        Secure Future International. (SFIMG)
