Never Give Up !
This was taken from an email from Dan Robinson.......Director of Marketing at FFSI talking about the enhancements effective Oct. 1,2004
If this doesn't light someone's fire.......then all I can say is their wood must be wet.
In October of 1999 RQ officially launched after being in the developmental stage since January,1997. In October we will celebrate our 5th anniversary.
During this time period we've seen many changes within the economy, our industry, and the Internet in general. Through all of this we've constantly moved forward implementing innovative strategies which have allowed us to stand out from the crowd.
Since inception, we've always worked to add more and more value to the services we sell and to make the opportunity better and better. And, just a few weeks ago, we set a new all-time high enrollment record. Well, all that's great.................but the best is yet to come!
Even if you didn't believe we could possibly make the Society anymore valuable than it already is. Even if you didn't believe we couldn't possibly make the opportunity anymore attractive than it already is. Well....how else can I say it......WE DID!
If you'll read the remainder of this major announcement, I'll make you a believer. MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT As you know, RQs culture has always been that of a very conservative company. We still are and Kelly still is, but I can't help myself. This is major and I'm not going to hide my excitement.
These enhancements will literally make the Financial Freedom Society a household name in the United States, well respected within Corporate America, and even more attractive to the international market.
We are about to equip our representatives with the ability to help many more people experience financial wellness. These enhancements will position our folks to lead the way in our grass roots movement to spread the message.
They deserve to receive the financial rewards that will surely come with such a noble achievement and I believe YOU deserve it as well. Because there's so much to be excited about there is no way I can list everything in this email. After about hundred pages I'd be tired of writing and you'd be tired or reading so I'm just going to give you the highlights here. Are you still with me?...Good!
This is definitely worth your time.
BRIEF OUTLINE OF ENHANCEMENTS
Effective October 1st, Retire Quickly Corporation’s name officially changes to Financial Freedom Society, Inc. (FFSI) This is a great move towards simplifying our service and story. This removes the need to explain what "Retiring Quickly" really means. Here's just a brief listing of some on the new additions to the Society.
(ATTN: International Readers - Don't worry we've taken care of you also. Just keep reading.)
Tax Center - providing free unlimited tax questions answered within 24 hours via email, tax calculators, record and track income and expenses, Schedule C calculator, tax calendar, tax reminder email system, and IRS forms and publications
Legal Services - providing free face to face or phone consultations for all new legal matters, free simple will with free annual updates, free living will (advance healthcare directive), free document review (6 pages or less), free letters written or phone calls made on your behalf, excellent discounts and caps on more complex legal issues.
Identity Theft Protection - providing online identity theft protection test and plan, 24 hour live customer service, & automated recovery wizard.
............plus the Ask Anything Service, alliance with Quicken Loans, discount health services such as:
Vision, Dental, Pharmacy, Counseling Services, Chiropractic Diabetic Supplies, Beltone Hearing Aids, Medical Records Storage, and Retrieval Family Consultation Services for child care and elder care.
............plus a 25 person conference room, website voice mail, FFS member's forum providing an online central meeting place for FFS members to share experiences, and to encourage each other to stay on the path to financial freedom.
.............plus discounts on selected fitness and health clubs through Fitness Advantage, and much, much more.
I'm sure we all have one or two things that really pushes our buttons. Just one of the things I'm looking forward to is the new membership booklet and membership card which will be mailed to all US based FFS members.
This seemingly little thing will dramatically help us turn an intangible into a tangible.
Another big addition will be the English speaking, international membership. We've had phenomenal success in the international market thanks to our hard working reps. Now, we're going to make their lives so much easier with a specific membership for non US members.
Another nice enhancement will be the new title of the eCourse from "How to Retire Quickly" to "The Art of Achieving Financial Freedom".
Another neat feature will be the opportunity for future customers and business partners to review lesson 1 of the eCourse for free.
We'll replace the Seven Secrets report and the Virtual Millionaire report with lesson 1 of the eCourse including the audio link. This will let the masses experience a little of who we are, what we do, and why we do it.
From the very beginning, it has been our mission to create a community of people made up of folks like you and empower you to live a wonderful life of simple abundance.
For you to have the time and money you need so that you can not only help yourself, but help others and make the world a better place to live because you lived.
Hopes and dreams are needlessly being destroyed for millions of people around the world because we were never taught how to manage our money or our time, nor shown where to get, or how to use the tools needed to do the managing.
The result is snowballing debt, bankruptcies, business failures, divorces in record numbers and destroyed retirement dreams.
The Financial Freedom Society can help stop their suffering and restore their dreams, but we need your help. We're about to enter into a time where many who have watched us for a long time will take action.
You can be there to help them.
We're about to see many former society members return. You can be there to help them. We're about to see people become more proactive in their marketing efforts than ever before. You can be there to help them.
Since I left my career as an investment advisor and joined the RQ family, I've never looked back. My family and I have been blessed beyond our wildest dreams. I wish I could let you walk in my shoes for a day and experience the blessings I've experienced, but I can't.
I had to get up everyday and put on my own shoes and make it happen. I had more help than I deserved, but I still had to do it myself. The same goes for you.
We've provided the vehicle for you, but you must drive it.
We are about to see sweeping global marketing campaigns both online and offline. FFSI will be introduced to new markets and reintroduced to many others. People follow conviction and if you can make our mission your mission, your life will never be the same.

NEVER GIVE UP!
In closing, I want to leave you with an inspiring story that has reenergized me on many occasions. Sir Winston Churchill took three years getting through eighth grade because he had trouble learning English.
It seems ironic that years later Oxford University asked him to address its commencement exercises. He arrived with his usual props. A cigar, a cane and a top hat accompanied Churchill wherever he went. As Churchill approached the podium, the crowd rose in appreciative applause. With unmatched dignity, he settled the crowd and stood confident before his admirers. Removing the cigar and carefully placing the top hat on the podium, Churchill gazed at his waiting audience. Authority rang in Churchill's voice as he shouted, "Never give up!" Several seconds passed before he rose to his toes and repeated: "Never give up!" His words thundered in their ears. There was a deafening silence as Churchill reached for his hat and cigar, steadied himself with his cane and left the platform. His commencement address was finished.
