Building a brand; personal update

For those who don’t know the Lisech brand is now located in Allendale, South Carolina. I personally am working out of a brick and mortar store. My staff are still in other countries. This is because I looked for the best I could find at what they do and brought them into Lisech eMarketing. With the internet, this is entirely possible. Mine is not the only corporation where there are offices in different countries.

Reason for the move?

As many people know, helping others is a way of life for me. People in Allendale County need more help than most. This was at one time a booming county. When the freeway was built, the tourist traffic went with it.  At least one business left for a cheaper labor market leaving no real place for anyone to work.

Current business district

The downtown area is in reality six blocks and separated by open space. There are more empty buildings than there are open businesses. There are two fast food restaurants and two other places to eat of which I am aware.

Where do the ones who work; work?

The young ones who are lucky enough to have a job work in Beaufort, South Carolina a little over an hour away or some other town even further away. The young men and women leave town at between 5:30 and 6:30 AM and return home about 12 hours later.  

What I found

The people who live here live at a slower pace. Very few are in a hurry. There is no place to go and not much to do. It is seldom when I am out and about, which is often, that others do not greet me on the street.

For the most part no one knows how to change

Every young person I have talked to talk about looking for something that is non-existent. They want J.O.B.’s. No one has told them that it is possible to start a business of their own. Those who have thought about it are stopped at every turn. More than once a store building has been condemned so it can’t be occupied.

No new construction

There is a large business building sitting vacant about two miles from the center of town. This one is newer; however, no one has leased it.

Like-minded people

Although the owner of the school and I often don’t see things the same way our overall goals are the same. That goal is to change the mindset of as many people as we can. One of the reasons I am not online much is because I am talking face to face with people.

The goals of Allendale county school of business

To show people there is another way. No one should have to spend their life waiting for a place to work to come to town. With the internet, the world is at their fingertips. It goes beyond that though because there are those who won’t be able to work on the internet.

Service jobs

For some reason most services are provided by someone from another town. Why can’t a local person be trained to provide them? In reality is should be more cost effective because they aren’t driving as far to perform the service. There is also a difference in time cost.


Rickysmart is the school store. Everyone who joins the school is a partner in the store. At this point, how to present Rickysmart is a work in progress.


The school is tied to a nonprofit. It is not set up to create profit for the owner. There are operating expenses, which are set at 10 percent. The rest goes back to members of the school and those who purchase from them. With online classes anyone worldwide can join. At the moment we are only accepting payza and paypal for tuition. Tuition is different for each class. Right now the two we are concentrating on are $20 and $100. I invested in both.

Am I taking care of myself

I know people have been worried that I wasn’t taking care of myself. To those I say, financially, I became a student like everyone else.  Because of this, I am actually making more than the school owner. This has paid faster and more consistent than any MLM I was ever involved with. Ricky is not a member of his class. I also still have residual income from programs started over two years ago.


I am more active now than I have been since 2009. I live with more pain now, this is a personal choice. I love meeting and talking to people, I can’t do this if I don’t go where they are. Last week I traveled about two miles in my wheelchair under my own power.

Meeting Lonnie Shipe

I don’t have a vehicle here. When I asked permission to borrow one to go meet Lonnie Shipe who was staying about two hours away it was given. This would not have been possible if I hadn’t been in South Carolina.

Do I practice what I teach?

The mark of any great consultant is practicing what they teach. You can’t give honest advice if you don’t do what you share. Here it is happening on a daily basis.

 “Friends first”

When a man or woman is looking for the mate they will spend, the rest of their life with, they should be concentrating on becoming friends first. Life is more fun when you spend your life with a friend. In business it is no different. Why would anyone want to work with someone they personally don’t like.
