About Me

Our names are Fred and Shirley Hodgins; we recently celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary. We live on a 100-acre farm in Southwestern Ontario 

For the past 27 years, I have had a great career which has been good to us and which I do well at.  Shirley has an MSW (Masters of Social Work) degree, but we made the decision 19 years ago that she would stay home, at first to be with our children and later to look after our various businesses. 
Even though I have been satisfied with my career, something inside me always strived for more: more truth, more security, more freedom, new and various experiences, and challenges. I guess I wanted to live a full life and leave a legacy for future generations beyond myself. Through the years, we have taken opportunities to own and operate various businesses as they presented themselves.  This has included owning a franchise, traditional business, maintaining our farm, various real estate projects, traditional investing, and Network Distribution. As a result of our experience, we have developed several guideposts to help people discern, evaluate and judge any business.
Our involvement in MLM started about 21 years ago. Like many of us, the concept just made sense. This was going to be a slam dunk. Fortunately, the early years were filled with struggles, challenges, and heartache; this led to skill development, perseverance, learning, friends, great times, travel and a list too long for this bio.
Through all of this, (including raising a family and balancing time) we had various levels of success in these business enterprises yet I found the bigger they became, there still was no real extra “take home” income.  I asked “WHY?”  I found that the common denominator in all ventures is money:” we work for it, save it, spend it, invest it, give it, and try and make it work for us, but many of us seem to come up short most of the time. 
Ten years ago, I set upon a quest to really understand money: where it comes from, and how and why we use it. This in-depth study of currency and currency-creation positioned me to understand macro economics at a whole new level. If you do not know the truth about money, you will believe a lie about money and there are multiple lies.
One thing that became apparent is to me that people need to diversify and become productive from home. First, we have to do this and then we have to empower others to do the same. In a nutshell, we need to learn and to apply truthful leverage in all our daily activities.
It is because of this quest that we personally are debt free and have not been affected by the “global meltdown” or more importantly, the “personal meltdown” people are experiencing. We are passionate about helping others to become debt free and have full productive lives.
We both look forward to interacting in this community and bringing value into your life.

Hi Fred, I am happy to make your acquaintance and want to thank you for extending your friendship. Friends are one of life special gifts that I deeply appreciate. I accept your gift with respect. What a happy couple. If you are new to MLM go slow educate yourself in the ways of the industry before committing your time or money. Follow the rules, don't get on the bad side of "Carl The Cop”. To learn the "ground rules visit If I can help you please contact me. “There are many who are living far below their possibilities because they are continually handing over their individuality to others. Do you want to be a power in the world? Then be yourself. Be true to the highest within your soul and then allow yourself to be governed by customs or conventionalities or arbitrary man-made rules that are not founded on high principles”. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF… take charge of your life and your financial future today From The Heart Elwood
