I have always been involved in helping people. My life's work has focused on helping others, whether it's developing a youth curriculum to help them find purpose in life, or to guide people to better health and wellness. Networking attracted me as an industry like no other. Any person wanting to change their economic situation can do so if the product has quality and the company is competent. While many companies can make that claim, the unparalleled differentiator for Max is our science. I realized that these patent protected products were vital in people's lives all over the world and no one could challenge our exclusivity for them. When I found this company with a product that no one else had, I began building this people-to-people business.
When I saw the big picture, I said I want to join. Max gives me the opportunity to spend time with my kids and family. This company gave me the opportunity to quit my job, which I did last November, and now I can focus on changing my life by helping people that need help. I will do it.
We were in vocational ministry for nearly fifty years and were subsisting on donations only. We had no retirement income other than our social security and it was just not sufficient. We have now been in the Max business for more than three years and it has bridged the income gap for us.
I always knew I wanted more from life than two jobs, no time for my family, and barely enough money to get by. When the economy put me out of work, rather than find another job, I found an opportunity. A friend introduced me to Max and right away I knew it was different. The science behind the product gave me hope. If I could build a business around this fantastic product, what else could happen? I am now on a mission to change lives both physically and financially. When I help someone understand that there is a real place where goals are possible, I see a commitment and an excitement come into their lives that grows their enthusiasm for moving forward. I want to do this business forever, connecting hope and dreams for others like Max did for me.
I felt my life was complete. I was retired and living on my farm in the Philippines when a trusted friend asked me to attend the Max Convention. The vision Steve Scott shared and the potential reach that this breakthrough product represented deeply moved me. Being an instrument of progress in the lives of other people could only create a level of significance in my own life. There is nothing; not wealth, position, or honor that can replace seeing another person's life changed for better. All we have to do is share our experience and invite others to have a product experience of their own. I had no idea that I was about to discover my life's work when I found Max. Perhaps you can discover yours as well.
I was the first Diamond. When I went to learn about this company I was the only guy there. They gave me one complimentary box of product to take home. Now I am a global organization. I look on one leg of my business and I see New Zealand and Australia. I look on the other and I see Canada and the Philippines. I have made more than $1 million doing this business and business is booming. Every week a check shows up. It has never been late. The product is shipped in time and life keeps going on. I don't have to look for another opportunity. I just remain consistent, persistent, and never give up.
I have been in the networking business for twenty five years. We joined Max because of the opportunity to partner with three giants of television infomercials, men who have generated billions of dollars: Greg Renker, Bill Guthy, and Steve Scott. I was taught that you had to have something called "stick to it" and if you did, you could make it. With these partners I knew that lightening was going to strike everywhere we planted this company. Like so many other people, the product experience cemented our commitment. In the first four days on the product, my wife and I watched a serious health issue turn completely around. We are here because the product works. In fact, I have never seen a nutrition product line affect so many people in such a profound way. I saw at Max the potential for Jill and I to be part of a legacy company. Today, three years later, I see an even greater potential because the timing of our presence is critical and the need for what we can do to heal people is global.
When I found Max I was entering bankruptcy. I never thought of networking. I was a trained x-ray technician, but the job required too many hours to work and never returned enough money to spend. I was always tired. I usually went to bed at 10:00 pm and woke up about 3:00 am and could never get back to sleep. I started taking the product and on the third day I went to bed at 10:00 pm and woke at 7:00 am. I felt different. I had energy. I felt good. It made me want to join the company. For me, my team begins at home with my wife Maritza Tellado. We build together. There are no supermen or superwomen. We are just normal people trying to help other people out.
I was working for a satellite company. I worked twelve hours every day seven days a week. It took all of my time and left me with barely enough money to survive. When I was introduced to Max, I said no. Another year went by and I saw my friend and asked how he was doing at Max. He was making in one month what I was making in one year. I decided at the point I needed to join. It was the best decision I ever made, even though my wife thought I was crazy and said she would divorce me. Well, in three months I was making more money than I ever had before in my other job. In two more months I asked my wife to quit her job because I was making also as much as she was making. Since then we have traveled as a family to Las Vegas, Hawaii, the Bahamas, Miami, and Disneyland. When I was a boy I dreamed of being an international businessman. Now I am one. I am living a dream come true because of Max and my wife is now very pleased that we made the commitment.
I'm 48 years old and feel like I did in my early 30's. Because of what Max did for me, I now have a passion for sharing the product and I am telling as many people as I can about Max. I had no idea what it meant to advance in the business, I only knew that based on the science it would help people. When my Max checks surpassed the income from my full time job I was amazed. Especially since I did not set out to sell anything. My heart cry is not to sell a product, but to change a life.
My sister and I raised our families in two different states and rarely saw each other. She called one day to share a product with me. I started using it and now feel as good at 7 in the morning as I do at 7 at night. Even better, we have time to work together now that our children are grown. Imagine, good health, a growing business and my baby sister and I hanging out and having a great time making money. Can life get any better than that? I suggest that it cannot.
Before Max I had joined several networking companies with no success. I was invited to a meeting where Ed Yco convinced me that the network marketing model worked. I was excited and brought my wife (then fiancé) to the next meeting. It was important for me that she saw the same opportunity I did. Without her approval there could be no Max business. At the time she was sick and tired of me joining other companies. We wanted in, borrowed enough seed money to enroll, and started our business. As we began helping people improve their lives we were changing our own. Trust is everything in this business. Trust the system and your leaders. It is not about money, it is about significance in life. The gold is in our hands if we just share the message. I am always grateful to my wife JHO because this would not have been possible without her. She is my life.
I raised two children as a single mother and prayed for a long time that I might find a way to help others get through that challenging time. By simply sharing Max I see the look on someone's face go from despair to hope because of this business, and knowing that I provided a solution to their financial problems is truly a gift from God.
