I was introduced to Market America in November 1995. My schedule was busy with a career in the food and beverage industry. I was working long, hard hours with little time for anything else.

Although financially things were okay, a retirement plan was lacking, a family life was nonexistent, and there was certainly no time for fun. Being open to suggestions at this point and after looking in all the wrong places (MLM for about a year), we were introduced the Market America compensation plan. It was a lifesaver.

By chance, I had met Lisa at a children's birthday party. A casual conversation about the kids, occupation and mutual interests quickly turned into an outburst of genuine excitement about some new type of marketing plan Lisa had just seen. "Don't do another thing with that other stuff until you take a look at what we just saw!" Then, standing in Lisa and Doug's living room the very next day listening to some guy just in the business six months (Steve Harris) explain the Plan in detail. This "thing" made so much sense, but could it be true? There was only one way to find out, give it a try.

On New Year's Day in 1996, it was time to take charge of life and begin working the Two- to Three-Year Plan. Because of previous unsuccessful involvement with an MLM, being cautious was an understatement. After seeing the Market America Plan, it indeed made perfect sense! This is how a compensation plan should be! This could be done while weaving into a crazy, busy schedule! Since life was flying by, it was time to jump on board with full vigor.

I left my job in March 1996 and became a full-time mom and part-time Market America Shop Consultant. The girls were the benefactors right off the bat! They had their mom home!

It took two and a half years to develop this into a six-figure income just just like the Plan said. What a fabulous feeling it is to achieve such a goal and have the time to enjoy life as well! The positive impact this has made in family life is what truly is important! To teach your children to help others succeed and how to generate money without sacrificing everything is just a great bonus. Initially it was only a dream, but then a dream that turned into a reality.

Thank you Lisa and Doug for sharing the opportunity and for the incredible friendship we now share. More importantly, thank you JR for having the vision in creating the most powerful business opportunity that exists on this planet. These two things will be cherished forever. It is a goal to help change the lives of anyone who has the same desires. The proof is in the success of all the Shop Consultants.
