John Fraser, Entrepreneur
Learned out later in life that Entrepreneurs really have a hard time working for other people as an employee… so after mowing lawns, doing lemonade stands, etc, I found out that after being fired or leaving ~40 jobs in my life, and a dozen businesses, most that failed and a few that did really well. After meeting Kelly my 4th wife, she convinced me to NEVER look for a job again and simply create what I wanted in life– really to identify what my strengths were and focus on those. So after my LegalShield business of 14 years was terminated, I used his expertise in marketing to help get Kelly’s Restaurant Upholstery business back up and running. In between doing upholstery, there was time to bring on clients who needed websites built, and hosted, so I started www.BYDHosting.com to accommodate this need. Also I had an opportunity to become a Street View Trusted Photographer who does the 360º Virtual Tours for the inside of businesss, so I opened, Tulsa Panorama.com and www.StreetView2Go.com. Eventually looking to own about 30-150 acres of land we will be building a solar passive home while developing a homestead, and building a workshop where I can work from home / tinker in the garage and work on New Energy projects — things that I enjoy, like building and working with my hands, and possibly raising some Alpacas and to retire young in an area that has not had the aquifers or spring water tainted and, install solar power and with 100 year old technology like Edison Batteries and off grid technologies, like Mike Strizki’s Hydrogen Home project, to create a sustainable systems that we control and deliver without the need for outside utility services, except for satellite based internet.
Kelly Fraser, Entrepreneur
I came from an entrepreneurial family which lead me down the path of owning my own businesses beginning with a Liquor Store and Car Wash at age 21. After selling those businesses, I worked as a Dental Office Manager while raising 2 boys and dreaming of opening a bookstore. The bookstore “Beyond Your Dreams” was opened in 1995 and closed in 1997 after deciding raising a then 3 yr old and 11 yr old and being away from home from 10 AM to 10 PM 6 days a week, TRAPPED behind 4 walls, wasn’t the life I wanted. So I took a break and stayed home, homeschooling the boys for the next 11 yrs. During this time, in 2000, I took an upholstery class which I loved! After my class I began building and selling custom leather and hair-on furniture, which lead to me being offered the opportunity to take over a restaurant upholstery business in 2003. While still operating the upholstery business I became an Associate with LegalShield in 2009.
I met John in 2009 as part of LegalShield. We were friends for a year, began dating in 2010 and got married in Santa Fe on 11-11-11! Since John’s LegalShield business was much more successful than mine, we began building his business and were on the verge of advancing to the next level, where we would be making over a $$$ 6 figure income $$$ … while only working less than Half of each Month! We thought we were on our way to living our DREAM LIFE … when we were Illegally Terminated on Oct 2, 2012! Happy 1 year Anniversary … NOT!
The Termination not only caused MONUMENTAL Financial Problems, it WREAKED HAVOC on our personal relationship too. John was angry, depressed and hopeless to Say the Least! Pretty much a #1 Asshole! During this time we built back up my upholstery business while I tried out other Network Marketing Companies our friends had become involved with. There were 3 MLMs in total with none working out. We didn’t try to bring any of our downline with LegalShield over and John’s attitude wasn’t the best either, as he really didn’t want to have anything to do with Network Marketing ever again! John held firm and decided until the lawsuit with LegalShield was finished or the none compete expired, we wouldn’t contact anyone from his business. John also started BYD Companies which includes web development, SEO and Google Streetview Photography.
During this time John’s values began shifting over to be more aligned with mine! Yippee!!! We decided to choose happiness and our relationship and our lives are growing stronger every day!
