Marshal Gering with Christopher Gering


First off, Thank you Fortune Builders; to Than, CEO and founder, to Ralph, the main speaker at my three-day summit event, and to all the Fortune Builders team members who have been a part of helping me find out about and get enrolled in the Fortune Builders Mastery Program. I am an enlisted soldier in the US Army, and I have only one year active duty status left to fulfill my obligations to the Government. In the Army, my primary Mission Occupational Specialty (MOS) is 12B- Combat Engineer. When I deployed to Kandahar, AFG in February 2012, I was 19 yrs old, had been out of high school for less than a year, and I really had no goals for my future or ideas about my life after the Army. I honestly was not even sure if I was going to make it through my 12 mo deployment. In Afghanistan, my company's main objective was 'Providing freedom of movement to civilians, afghan and coalition forces'. Basically we kept different ground routes clear and safe, which included looking for Improvised Explosive Devices (IED's) and mines, and then we would destroy or disable those obstacles, sometimes while under fire from the enemy. My job was to drive a one person vehicle all around Afghanistan in the goal to find bombs utilizing my detection capabilities, or if in the event I couldn't find them, get my vehicle blown up in the hopes that I would be sparing the lives of my brothers in arms and those of the local nationals. Well, needless to say I survived deployment without any serious injuries, and I really just wasn't sure what I was going to do next. Today, I am 20 yrs of age, have been out of high school for a little over two years. It can be unsettling to look forward to a future full of unknowns and uncertainties. I was originally looking forward to going to school and utilizing what money the government has promised me for my higher education, but I was not even sure what I wanted to study. I was just so confused about what I should really do; worrying about the economy, whether or not I could even find a job- regardless of if I liked it or not, and not having any kind of plan. Sure, there were and still are plenty of options available to me, but the hardest part for me is trying to pick one that is best for me, for my future. It is not a question of 'can I apply myself?', but a question of 'will it be worth it to me?' and 'what kind of lifestyle will I have?' I found out about Fortune Builders one day in July or August in 2013. I constantly have the radio on in my car, and at work because I work in an arms room (an armory with weapons, can't really leave, can't bring my laptop in). An advertisement comes on and says 'how would you like to make a lot of money flipping houses?' or something to that effect. I had heard a lot about house flipping, but I wasn't really sure how it worked, and didn't want to take risks in something I had no experience with. But it did sound nice, making a lot of money though... In response to the radio advertisement, I laughed aloud and thought that it was probably just some scam, because, as always, the event was '100% free'. All I could think of was what kind of thing will they try and guarantee would make me money and would only cost $XX.xx a month. For a few weeks I kept ignoring the ad, and turned to a different station or turned down the volume whenever the ad came up. But one day, and I still am not sure what drove me to do it, I just decided ‘what the heck, it’s free right?’ and I signed up for the event in Temple, TX. I figured that worse case scenario, I don't want what they are selling and I could just leave. It turned out to be, what I feel, was one of the best decisions in my life. Both the one day event in Temple, and the three day summit event in Waco were eye openers, and the people were friendly and honest, the speakers were uplifting and encouraging. Thank you Fortune Builders for showing a whole new world to me, an entirely different lifestyle. Never before had I seen or heard of a business that is run like yours. I really want you to know that you guys inspired hope in me. I have a completely different view of my future now, and I want to thank you guys for giving this to me. I am truly excited to get started making a successful business with my father, allowing us to bond in a new way, and for providing me and my family the opportunity at achieving a different lifestyle. Without the positive encouragement and extremely helpful support and education you provide, I would not be looking forward to the end of my contract. Thank you Fortune builders, for the chance at a head start with my new life. Thank you, SPC Marshal Gering 20th EN BN, 36th EN BDE US Army
