August 3rd, 2013 by

Having built admirable success in real estate, Ray Higdon was living a life of great abundance when the market crashed and changed everything. In the blink of an eye his income was gone, his house was being foreclosed, and he didn’t know where to turn. Determined that this was not the end, Ray started rebuilding his life and he started with the most essential piece to the puzzle – himself. As he looks back, this mental shift and refocusing was essential to his meteoric rise to success in the multi-level marketing industry. Far beyond his real estate career, he achieved this growth by focusing on the success of those around him. Ray shares how he used the opportunity of a crumbling foundation to rebuild something that could have never existed before.
