We started our Independent UnFranchise® Business in November 1996 because we liked Market America's Isotonix OPC-3® and Oxygen Plus.
After attending the 1997 Leadership School, Marian was totally fired up and in three short months, she fired her boss. Since then, our lives have completely changed for the better. Marian could wake up without an alarm clock and spend more time with the family. I sold my overseas partnership and united with my family again.
By sharing our personal experience with our friends, we have helped lots of other people improve their financial situation. At the same time, we have built a solid UnFranchise Business and enjoyed the ongoing income. As many Market America UnFranchise Owners will tell you, "The first thing you feel from using Market America's products is health enhancement. The first thing you gain from working this business is personal growth." Financial independence comes naturally after you gain your personal growth.
Working direct sales was a great challenge for a computer programmer, like my wife is, and an environmental engineer, like I am. In the beginning, we spent most of our time attending meetings and trainings. A nice benefit was that we could earn an income while we learned the system. In 1999, after three years of hard work, we reached the UnFranchise Level of Executive Director. Since then, I have taken to environmental consulting as a hobby instead of an occupation. Our life further changed when we moved into our dream house in August 2001. We set new goals for ourselves and helped others do the same. We reached the UnFranchise Level of Field Vice President in November 2001 and Executive Field Vice President in October 2002. We believe the sky is the limit with Market America.
With the launch of Market Australia in June 2002, we became frequent visitors to the country. Since then, we have traveled to Australia four times and have become familiar with Australia's cities like Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. With Market Australia, we have made many Australian friends and business partners. With Market America's global expansion, we will travel around the world and make friends worldwide.
Market America is all about teamwork and leadership. We have learned how to lead by example. We found Market America's Global Meeting, Training and Seminar System (GMTSS) to be the best place to develop our leadership skills. We encourage everybody to participate in GMTSS activities and attend the International Convention and World Conference.
