In August of 1996, our journey with Market America began when Bonnie Gallagher, our sponsor, invited herself to our home with a cooler full of food and beverage. Not one to turn down a "cold one" we gladly accepted!
What was to be a "practice session" for her, turned into a mission for us! Skepticism grew into belief after she insisted we attend a local event, a "Super Saturday," where none other than JR himself was the guest speaker. It was shortly after this that Market America took hold of our abilities to regain the belief we once had in ourselves, giving us the incentive to once again think about fulfilling our dreams. Pretty much trapped in the 45-Year Plan that was constantly changing as the structure of the penal system changed and shift work became a way of life, we had resigned ourselves to the fact that to get ahead we had to work harder and all the time. As a recreation officer and then a guard, Big Al was always working, as he also had a side job working in sales for a sporting goods company. I was constantly doing schoolwork as a teacher in kindergarten. Our lives were our J-O-Bs! Then Big Al began to mentor with our upline, Bonnie Gallagher and Andy Webb, and things began to change. As Andy tells everyone, "you have to own the Plan!" So showing this tremendous business opportunity to everyone became our mission. And sooner rather than later, the passion for the business evolved and Big Al's grasp on making this business venture successful became apparent. Our lives changed when we realized the business could afford us a bigger home, and we built our dream house. Big Al soon realized he could afford to fire his boss, and then solicited him into the business, so now his boss works for him! I quit teaching and we are now stay-at-home parents and grandparents. I get to do what I never could with my own children. Knowing that I am playing a major role in the influence and development of my granddaughter makes a world of difference and realizes one of my biggest dreams! We have been able to do many things we probably would have had to wait some time to do had it not been for Market America. Now we have secured a path for our future as well as gained a few steps toward our dreams. With the Market America opportunity we have become a part of an exclusive team and want nothing more than to see to it that others are provided with the same opportunity to enrich their lives as well. What better way to help shape someone else's future than through the UnFranchise® Business? Taking an active leadership role allows us to give back. There is nothing we like doing more! This business has become our vehicle for overcoming many obstacles that at one time may have been considered insurmountable. We now have our eyes open and our goals set for a lifetime of time freedom and ongoing income. But let's not forget that without the efforts of all in our organization we would not have been able to succeed. We thank everyone for that, and remember where we came from and recognize how the effort on our part will help shape their future as well. It is truly a team effort; there is no "I" in "team." With determination, a little hard work and effort, taking a step out of your comfort zone and holding yourself accountable, anyone can become a hopeless success. Big Al reminds everyone that with an open mind, the ability to follow directions and be coachable, you have the steam to move up to the top. We're hoping we see everyone there with us!
