The same good fortune that happened to Jim all those years ago is about to happen to you! This man was very rich and wise. He had an incredible philosophy about life and he was easy to talk to. Jim walked into the room and took a seat. A world where you could truly be anything you wanted to be and you could have anything you wanted to have!

During those four weeks, she decided to write a book to help women thrive in the male-dominated business world.

Sitting at her kitchen table, she made two lists: one contained the good things she had seen in companies for which she had worked, the other featured things she thought could be improved. When she reviewed the lists, she realized that she had inadvertently created a marketing plan for a successful "dream company.

The company she founded remains today one of the greatest success stories in the annals of business. Who is Earl Shoaff? They called him "The Millionaire Maker. Born on March 21, , with such a weak and fragile heart, his doctors did not expect him to survive. As he grew into childhood, it was during one of his many doctors visits that he heard the words that would become the driving force in his life: Earl, live each day as though it were your last because in your condition, today may be all you have!

With his family struggling to make ends meet, he decided to leave school and get a job. He found work in a dry cleaners and it was there he stayed until World War II broke out. He quickly volunteered, but was rejected by the military because of his heart condition.

Wanting to do his patriotic duty, he joined the American Field Services overseas. As an ambulance driver and medical corpsman, he was in constant combat duty for over two years. This caused irreparable damage to his heart, but it rekindled a determination to squeeze every drop out of life and devote his remaining years to help mankind achieve greater fulfillment.

After the war, he married his childhood sweetheart. A neighbor introduced him to a unique business opportunity and he became a millionaire in less than four years.

It was through this unique business that he became a mentor to Jim, Bill, Zig, Mary Kay and thousands of people all over the country. He subsequently headed several large corporations with unprecedented success. He was intimately acquainted with the outstanding men of industry and government, but never waivered in his drive to awaken men and women of all ages to their true potential. His life and lifestyle fascinated people. Born with a weak heart, and of modest means, he overcame the odds and became a true-life "rags-to-riches" story that anyone could duplicate.

He frequently toured the country telling spellbound audiences that "Life never, never withholds anything from anyone. Love, health, wealth, companionship. All these exist in infinite abundance.

Earl Shoaff was one of those incredible people. He had that rare ability of simplifying the laws of success and abundance to where even children understood and successfully applied them.

Therein lies the great value of his simple message, and why it can be the turning point in your life. Shoaff used to say "Be naive enough to believe what I say for just thirty days and you will be on your way to a new life. I have 3 questions for you. Sadly, suffering from a bad case of pneumonia, the weak heart that plagued him since birth finally gave out on September 6, at age Shoaff was the keynote speaker at a large gathering of success minded people from all over the United States and Canada.
