If someone would have told me 22 years ago that it was possible to be debt-free, traveling the world, living in the home of my dreams, and leading others on a path of purpose, I would have thought they were crazy.
We knew nothing about Market America 22 years ago. I was a sales manager with a direct-sales company for 20 years, and my husband, Dave, was an automotive instructor and department head for the technology department of a high school. I was suffering from major burnout, so I resigned from my position and started to research and became involved with a number of home-based and MLM businesses. In 1996, I discovered something completely different: Market America! I made Market America my career and, after just one year, we were making a substantial income, and Dave was able to retire and join me in the business. Now our greatest reward is to see hundreds of lives changed because of market-driven and life-impacting products. Because of the training offered by the Global Meeting, Training and Seminar System, we were able to bring the right people who wanted change to the events, and they were trained along with us. In 2006, my son, Christopher, after earning his MBA from the University of Wisconsin, partnered with me in business to continue the legacy that will be passed down for generations. One thing we learned is that if you treat this business as a business, you will earn a professional income! We feel that there are two requirements to be successful: 1) Be coachable! 2) Have a sincere desire to help people. When your dreams and your vision are so vivid that the facts don't count, you know you are on your way to financial freedom! If you're willing to change, then you can make a difference and change the world. JR makes the statement that the definition of ignorance is to do the same thing day after day and expect a different result! We say that if you're not where you want to be in your life (physically, spiritually or financially) then you must make a change. It is never too late! Our greatest joy has been to watch our family become involved in our business and realize a lifelong dream of living back on the farm where I grew up. Our 80 acres with a lake is being developed into a retreat and training center, which will be "The Becoming Inn" for family, friends and ministries that will give back to the community and be a tribute to my parents. Our daughter, Tara, and her husband, Mike Brown, are Supervising Coordinators and are continuing to build a strong business. We feel very blessed to have met so many talented, entrepreneurial-minded people. Our success has happened because of our incredible team of people and the Market America UnFranchise® Business Development System. Every dream and goal can be achieved when we work with focus and a philosophy. With belief, enthusiasm, effort to empower and persistence, anything is possible! We praise God and give thanks to our Lord for leading us to this opportunity. Thank you JR, Loren and the Corporate Team for the gift of Market America.
