Could not fit 1 more thing in my schedule
Eliminate people that don’t get it
Find a need / build belief
Give them something to lose
You’re never going to make real money working for someone else
AS I BECOME A BETTER ME, I ATTRACT BETTER PEOPLE
Could be the biggest financial mistake you have ever made
How did you hear about the Ambit Opportunity & what impressed you most?
A good friend shared the Opportunity with me after we worked together on a political campaign. I was impressed with how easy it is to market our service, and the fact that we were just at the beginning of something very big.
What is your “WHY” that keeps you focused and motivated the most?
My “Why” is to replace the income from my traditional business. My traditional excavation business requires a lot of physical activity which is beginning to take a toll on my body. I have several disc issues with my back and neck which in time will force me to either hire additional employees or change careers. With the success of my Ambit business, it is foreseeable that in the next year or two, I’ll have replaced that income and possibly given myself a raise with a career that is much less destructive to the body and quite honestly a lot more fun and rewarding.
What do you see for yourself in your future, personally and professionally?
A full time business with Ambit Energy. As my business grows, I plan to travel, meet new people and help them make a change in their life that will ultimately result in a better life for thousands of people.
What was your single most-effective Success Tool, factor or influence for growing your business?
The single most effective tool for my success has been “plugging in” to the local meetings. By starting our own, as well as visiting other meetings. I have met many of the other leaders in the company and have been able to share their stories with my team and prospects. They’ve all been a part of my success and I hope to be a small part of theirs.
What advice do you have for new Consultants?
Make a one year commitment, follow the system and most importantly, have fun! If one of the leaders in the company asks you to attend an event or do something, do it! It is part of the system and your success.
