Toledo, Ohio – (June 2011)- Adam Brandt, a recently published ebook author hopes his story is enough to keep teens from making the same types of mistakes he did as a teen.
“Adventure, Travel, Rock-N-Roll”
As a recent high school graduate, barely 18 years old in 1997, Adam had a dream of success and was bound and determined to follow his dream. Like most 18 year olds looking to find a new career, Adam was intrigued by the help wanted ads in The Toledo Blade.
Adam took his first shot at success by joining with a door-to-door vacuum sales company. Most of us know a thing or two about the pesky sales people trying to sell an over-priced vacuum cleaner. Well Adam was one of them.
Adam couldn't find the success he was after while selling vacuum cleaners so he moved on to the next opportunity. This time around he was selling frying pans, toy keyboards, and other junk merchandise. Again Adam could not find the success he was looking for.
Most people would have looked for a stable job after experiencing difficulty in the door-to-door sales arena, but not Adam. He read an ad simply titled Adventure-Travel-
As a traveling sales crew member life is hard. 14-16 hour days, little pay, and unsavory living conditions. None of these compared to the lifestyle. Drugs, alcohol, and more of each. As teenagers we are very susceptible to picking up what our peers are doing around us and Adam fell victim.
The magazine scam job did not last long when Adam stumbled onto another opportunity. Selling a magic citrus cleaner. Life was the same, and after months of abuse and neglect to his loving family and friends, Adam decided to find his way home.
Getting home was not easy. Leaving the crew outside of Washington DC with no money, Adam had to spend a few nights sleeping on the streets just blocks from the White House. Finally he begged, borrowed and scammed the money for a train ticket home, vowing to someday tell his story to encourage others to avoid the lifestyle.
Over a decade later, now in 2011, Adam has finally finished what he started. It took the realization that people don't want to hear about just a failed dream, they want to hear how to overcome the failed dream. He has started a movement called Bloomsayer Intl. He has authored two ebooks available on Amazon with more in the pipeline, and he wants to make sure teens and parents alike use their judgement when looking for fun summer employment. With the grim outlook on jobs, it is definetely a buyer beware scenario while on the job hunt.
