From Foster Child Turned Disabled Veteran, To Network Marketing 7 Figure Earner
I overcame watching my mother being abused by my father, being bullied, living in foster homes in my pre-teen and early teenage years. When I was 18, I left for the Army. As a Soldier excelled and ended up being wounded in combat, suffering from a TBI among other injuries that left me jobless and struggling to feed my family. I decided my family and I deserved more. This is when I became a professional network marketer and blogger.
Where I’ve Come From
I was born in California but lived in multiple states growing up. I lived with my parents, Grandparents and in foster homes. My childhood wasn’t typical, but it played a major role in my life’s direction. The challenges I faced molded me into the person I am today.
I wasn’t raised in a middle-class family, but rather a poor family. I lived in a single-wide trailer with holes in the floor and no air conditioning. Heck, I still remember that feeling of going to the grocery store with that “monopoly money” (food stamps) and standing in line for the government cheese.
In 1994 I joined the Army, knowing that if I wanted something different I needed to get away and do something different. After 18 years and multiple deployments, I was medically retired in 2011 for injuries sustained in combat while in Afghanistan. The military taught me many important lessons about life and what matters most. I also learned the value of teamwork and collaboration, which was a huge factor in developing my network marketing business with Pruvit.
In 1995 I got married to an amazing woman that would help me become a better man and person, I was 19, she (Heather) was 20. We started out with a lot of love and that’s about it. Since I was in the Army we received housing, but we couldn’t afford any furniture or anything so we slept on a cold tile floor with 2 pillows and a blanket! This might seem crazy, but looking back it was a an amazing time and I’d do it over in a heartbeat.
Heather and I had had our first child in August of 1996 (Dylan) and our second in August of 1999.
It’s my passion and determination that has led me to a fulfilling career in the Army, to completing my MBA in Business and building a successful international network marketing business with Pruvit, and most importantly building and sustaining an amazing family.
After earning my MBA in 2013 I was searching for my next job/career. It was at this point I was introduced to the idea of building a network marketing business. My friend and CEO/founder of Pruvit, Brian Underwood, shared with me his vision and mission for a new network marketing company called Pruvit. Brian’s vision and dream of what Pruvit could and would be inspired me to join Pruvit. Watch my story
I’ve been involved in network marketing (Social Marketing, MLM, Home Based Business, whatever you want to call it) since September 2015, and our team currently spans the globe. Our team and I are passionate about helping others become the best version of themselves, helping people build their own business that allows them freedom. Freedom of time, financial freedom, and freedom from self-doubt.
Where I’m Going
I have a very clear vision for my future and some challenging goals that I am working towards. I plan to help a minimum of 100 people become extremely successful in the network marketing/MLM business model. Meaning… I want to help them build a business that allows them to live well, provide the freedom to travel, and create generational wealth.
My mission is to join forces with those wanting to achieve greater financial independence and a higher quality of life by helping others become the best version of themselves. We can reach new levels of success in business and in life together. I’m dedicated to continually learning and growing and I have a passion to help others do the same. Together we can and will accomplish amazing things!
