Q: Have you always been involved in network marketing?
A: No. In fact, it was never even on my radar! I hated school, but
my father made me go to year 11. Then he said I could drop out if I
got a job. So I got a job at a bank making coffee for staff. I worked
my way up. By the time I was 20, I was working as an engineer
and earning an incredible income. But I had also decided I didn’t
want to work for someone else anymore. I wanted to work for me.
Q: Is that when you went into network marketing?
A: Not yet. But I did go into business for myself. And I was very
successful. At various points in my career I ran a gym, car washes,
and even the largest security company in Australia. I even owned
a hotel and a modeling agency. I was at the top of my game—
physically fit, financially secure, and extremely happy.
Q: What happened?
A: In 2011, when I was 44 years old, my wife Suzanne and I got
some bad news about my health. For two and a half years, my
second home was a hospital in Sydney. Financially, we were
devastated. We lost everything because I couldn’t work. I felt and
looked terrible. And at the end of it all, they told me to get my
affairs in order. At that point, I decided to take responsibility for
my health back into my own hands. That decision led me to ASEA.
Q: How did you start building your business?
A: When people saw how my heath was improving, they asked
me about it, so we started simply sharing my story. We won a trip
to Cancun without really trying; that trip was the turning point
for us. In Cancun, we met about 200 associates from all over, and
none of them were talking about the money. Instead, they were
talking about helping people feel better and living healthier.
Q: What are your plans with ASEA today?
A: Suzanne and I are fully engaged in getting the ASEA word out
as quickly as possible. We’ve spent the past two and a half years
traveling around the world, and we have team members in 35
different countries. This is the most satisfying thing I’ve done in
my whole life. People can take or leave our message, but it’s our
job to get the message out there as quickly as possible. I could put
20 businesses together, and it would pale in comparison to what
we’re doing with ASEA.
