About Me: My name is Marty Baker, I am 43 yrs. young, I have been married for 21 yrs. all to the same women (lol) I have Twins daughters that will be 19 in Oct of 2010. I live in Springfield MO. I have worked in sales for the last 20 yrs. I got into my 1st MLM Company in the late 80′s.
Growing up I was very poor, I lived with my mother who was an alcoholic. She was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis in her mid 30′s she kind of freaked out. She got a divorce from my Father. By the time I was in the 6 grade I had been in at least 8 different schools. We had no Money and we moved all the time. There was always a part of me telling myself that this will not be my life. I will not go into detail; I will just say it was a very tough life. Anyway I drew the line in the 6 grade and I told my mother I was not moving again at that time I was working after school and during summer break. I was making money on my own. I did not move again until after high school graduation. We lived in a 14×70 trailer house that was about 25 yrs old. It was not much but it was home. I started molding my own future at the moment I told her that I was not moving again. There is so much more to this story that it would shock you… I will tell you this; it only takes a few good people in your life to make a difference.
Fast forward about 20 yrs now I live in a $250,000 home. I have a beautiful wife and a loving family. My mother inspired me by showing me exactly how I did not want to live. Now I want all to know that I loved my mother and she love me, I never doubted that. Everything I went through made me stronger.
Now, with me what you see is what you get. You like me you don’t like me either way is ok. I will tell you what I think straight out. I try my best not to talk about people in a negative way if they are not present. I try to stay focused on the glass being half full.
Some things I like to spend my time doing. I love to work out, I just finish my 1st set of P90X, I went from 189plds to 163pds in 90 days. I look and feel great. In my youth I was a Kick boxer I went undefeated until I fought for the Missouri amateur title and lost. I also fought in many open Karate tournaments and did very well in them. I love to ride horses with my Wife; horses are my wife’s true Passion. I enjoy a good round of golf. I love following my Kansas City Chiefs although it has been pretty rough the last few yrs. I like to play a good game of pickup basketball. Yah, so I like sports… LOL.
I would have to say my greatest passion is helping people achieve the level of success that I have achieved. When I am coaching someone I get pure enjoyment from it. I have been coaching and training people for the last 20 yrs and that is one of the big reasons I have seen success.
