Vinny & Dayna NewYork, NY
They were more than $1 million in debt with two kids to support.
Their cars had been repossessed, their electricity had been shut off
and they had just experienced the failure of their furniture business.
“We were frustrated and looking for some kind of opportunity,”
continues Vinny, “and when this came along, I thought,
what have we got to lose?”
One of their greatest thrills is that both of their children and
their children’s spouses are also in the business.
They are quick to say they certainly didn’t achieve their own
success overnight, and feel it all gets back to dreaming big:
How badly do you want something? How hard are you willing
to work for it? How strong is your commitment to making it happen?
Vinny & Dayna are inspiring examples of a family that was down about as far as they could go–
and worked hard to turn their lives around. Today they are debt free
and can do pretty much anything they want, whether it’s traveling to a
favorite destination or enjoying family time at home.

I am very proud, pleased, and blessed to be an American. These weekly columns are read by people literally all around the world. I have been contacted by Winners’ Wisdom column readers who live in dozens of different countries. On several occasions, I have been contacted by readers who are citizens of countries that I was not familiar with and was, therefore, compelled to sharpen up my geography knowledge.
Opportunities abound here in America. No matter what you may hear in the media, it is easier and simpler to become wealthy in the United States today than ever before. Tax advantages and investment strategies exist that allow everyone with a little bit of discipline and diligence to become financially independent.
Throughout my travels across the country and around the world over a number of years, I have conducted my own informal research into immigrants’ work ethic and financial success. My curiosity began when I met a Somalian immigrant who was driving me from the airport in San Diego to the resort where I was speaking. He and I struck up a conversation and became friends. Over the past 18 years, I have made more than 40 trips to San Diego for speeches on the same resort island, and my Somalian friend has been my driver on every occasion.
When I first met him, he had just arrived in our country and was working diligently to save enough money to bring his family from Somalia to America. After several years, he reached his goal but continued to pursue his own version of the American dream. Today, I’m pleased to report that my Somalian friend who will shortly become an American citizen owns a fleet of limousines, a gas station, a convenience store, and equity in several other businesses throughout southern California.
When he arrived in the United States, my friend did not know our language, our culture, or our business environment. Today, he speaks fluent, if heavily accented, English; engages in the best of our culture while still having a passion for his African heritage; and has become an astute and shrewd American businessman. If you were to judge my friend’s path to success from the streets of Somalia to the lifestyle he enjoys today, you would realize that any high school graduate in the United States is more than halfway up the mountain my friend has climbed. He spent over a decade just getting to the starting blocks where most of us begin our careers; but nevertheless, he has become the envy of many Americans who are convinced that my friend is lucky or found some secret to success.
His success secret is the same one you and I can utilize. Believe in the American dream, and work hard.

Today’s the day!
Alfredo worked 2 jobs— one as a cashier, one as a handyman—that ate up 16 to 18 hours of his day. Dinora worked 56 hours a week as a baby sitter. “Thank goodness my employer allowed me to bring our son to work,” she says.
When her brother was able to show them the business compensation plan, he suggested they both be present. Dinora made the decision to see it, but with no commitment.
But Alfredo saw a great opportunity. He recalls, “I was so excited I didn’t sleep for five nights!” Dinora ultimately relented. “Thank God I finally changed my mind,”she replies, “because this business is the best thing that’s ever happened to us!”
The biggest change they’ve noticed since starting their business?
Happiness, pure and simple. Comments Alfredo, “We have no debt, no job pressure, and quality time as a family. We’re really living a dream life!”

I clearly remember the day a gentleman approached me with a unique design for a new type of mechanic’s wrench. While I have little or no knowledge of tools, I do know one of the leading patent attorneys in the country. I promptly called him, and since he was a friend, he was willing to meet with us at his home on a weekend. I accompanied the gentleman with his prototype wrench to the patent lawyer’s home, and we were welcomed into his study. The gentleman proudly showed the patent attorney the wrench he had designed, and the attorney began laughing uncontrollably. I was about to question his rude and insensitive response when he reached into a desk drawer and took out a shiny carrying case that he opened to reveal a set of wrenches virtually identical to the one that the gentleman had brought. The attorney explained that he had done the patent work for these revolutionary new wrenches three years earlier, and the new wrenches had made his client very wealthy.
The gentleman who had accompanied me to the attorney’s home dejectedly tossed his prototype into a trash can beside the attorney’s desk and muttered that he’d had the prototype sitting in the back of his drawer for more than 15 years. Whenever confronted by an idea, concept, or inspiration, remember the Latin phrase Carpe diem, and seize the day.
As you go through your day today, remember ideas come to us for a reason and for a season.

I hate to be the one to give you the bad news, but life is not fair. Life is great, it’s grand, and it’s wonderful, as well as being the only game in town, but it’s not fair. We don’t always get what we want, need, or even deserve, but we will always eventually get what we expect.
Our vision drives our expectations, which drives our performance, which creates our results. You cannot outperform the vision you have of yourself. You may think it odd to be getting advice from a blind person about vision; however, vision is the opposite in many ways of sight. Sight tells you where you are and what’s around you. Vision tells you where you could be and what is possible.
My mentor and friend Jack Nicklaus often says, “I never hit a successful golf shot until I visualize it in my mind going exactly where I want it to go.”
In order to supercharge our vision, we often need to get away from the mundane and ordinary elements of life to explore the realm of possibility. Pablo Picasso said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Oftentimes, we get so caught up in maintaining the status quo that we forget to consider the universe of options and opportunities. It’s easy to become so busy making a living that we forget to make a life.
Martin & Jessica- Texas, USA
Martin lost his job of 24 years at a steel foundry.
Jessica spent long hours running a small jewelry store.
Neither of them had formal education. But they had hope,
passion and determination when they were introduced
to this business.
At first, Martin became involved in the business on his own
while Jessica continued to run her store. “We realized this
opportunity had power, but we just had no idea then how big
it could be, or the freedom it could offer us,” says Martin.
“Within a couple of years, I decided to quit the jewelry store
and join my husband in the business. He was working the business
and making more than I was. I wanted more time with him and the kids,”
Now they spend more time every day with their sons- 24, 19, 6 – and take
vacations as a family.
Originally from Mexico, Martin has a strong desire to travel and see more of his country.
They would also like to tour different countries.
“Soon we will have a house on a 10-acre lot outside of the city.” Says Jessica.
Martin explains: “I believe you’re capable of accomplishing whatever you set
your mind to if you have hope.
This business gives you hope.”
“We came from zero,” says Martin. “We are privileged to have this opportunity
and thank God for the Founders who created the business.
If it is good for us, we know it is good for many others.”
If you’re looking for a business that fulfills your passion …
If you’re looking to help people – really help them – and enjoy an improved life …

“We came here from El Salvador for the American Dream,
but didn’t find it until someone showed us this business opportunity,”
Last year, he and Teresa sold their salon, and Ramon hung up
his keys as a taxi driver.
“Now we can sleep in, go to the gym, and focus on our team and family,” he says.
Ramon and Teresa credit their business with restoring family
relationships. Today they and their children live under one roof.
Besides future trips to Maui, Peter Island, and their native El Salvador,
“I’m especially excited about one we’re planning with my parents
to the Holy Land,” Teresa says. “We feel so blessed by this business.
It transforms people’s lives!”

“Only the belief that ‘we can’, is enough to make us successful in this business.” “In other businesses, you have to have a lot of money to invest, not to mention the experience, knowledge and the time that you need to devote. We started this business with none of these,” says Suphat and Praphaphat.
Suphat was only, 20 years old, an engineering student in university and Praphaphat, 18 years old, was a high school student when they started their business. “Everybody told us we would never succeed because we were too young, had no money and no experience. You both should concentrate on studying,” we heard many times. “Yes, they were right. We had nothing but a strong belief, deep in our hearts, that ‘we can’. We started our journey to success with only this and yet here we are today.”
Suphat started this business to earn extra money to buy a pair of Levi 501s. It was a small dream but this was his beginning point. He recalls, “That small dream lit the fire in my heart to do something to get it. From that pair of Levi’s my dream expanded. We learned that if a thousand people say that we can’t, but we believe we can, we can, indeed. If a thousand people say that you can but you do not believe you can, nothing will happen. You can do it. It happened to us. It also will happen to you if you have a strong belief that you can.
We choose this business as our only and last career. This is the best opportunity to build a happy family and long term financial security. We’ve gotten everything we ever dreamed of and many good things have happened beyond our expectations. Our dream grows every single day. We learned, we developed ourselves and we duplicated the actions of the ones who have succeeded before us. With this business we built our dream, our real value in this life. ‘A man without a dream is like a body without a soul or like one sailing in the sea without a destination’. This is our own business. We are our own boss. We can control our life. We’ve never worked for anybody. We never worked to build other people’s dreams. We work hard to achieve our dream, and we never tire of doing this because the harder we work, the closer we are to our dream. We believe if we can achieve everything in life from this business, you too can. ‘Only the belief that we can, is enough to make us successful in this business’.”
Stephanie & Nick New Jersey, USA
According to Nick and Stephanie, “Calling the shots and being your own boss
are just a couple of the many rewards of this business. To walk away from our jobs
at 20 years old was an incredible feeling. When we received a check for $20,000 in
bonuses, it was a “wow” moment.”
“We want to mentor more people, serve as role models, and continue to be
the go-to couple for family and friends.” They also look forward to traveling the world.
