Pete, what is the secret to your success?
Constant daily renewing of my mind to be more like Jesus. Prayer, serving, and giving of my time, money, and talents. I’m not perfect or religious. I just love Jesus. I constantly just want to have a daily relationship with him.
How you were first introduced into Network Marketing?
My whole life direction changed back in 2006 when a good friend of mine Eddie “Fit Eddie” Diaz changed my life. As I sat in a job that I disliked doing software engineering he gave me 2 books. “The Bible” and “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”. From there I knew I wanted to be my own boss and wasn’t sure how to do that.
One of my uncles caught me at the right time as I was searching for a business and invited me to look at an opportunity. At that time it was called Pre Paid Legal selling legal insurance. I stuck with that company for 2 years and only made $1,000. I look back now and it wasn’t the company, or my uplines, or comp plans fault. It was all me. I understood if its to be, its up to me. I knew I needed to grow more personally because I was still that shy, quiet, insecure person.
Through out the years. I’ve invested a lot of time and money into my personal development and still to this day everyday continually growing.
When I was in high school I wanted to be a teacher to mentor the younger generation but I chose to do software engineering because unfortunately teachers don’t make a lot of money. I regret that decision because I chose the money over my passion and ended up hating those years as an engineer.
I was first introduced to vemma and I actually said “This is not for me right now”. But I kept an eye on people’s facebook constantly engaged in what they were up to. I kept seeing all these young people postings and that caught my attention as I’ve never seen a lot of young people like myself in the industry and making it work.
It took about 8-9 months after before I got started immediately as I saw myself being able to be that teacher once again but get paid as much as I wanted to depending on the work I did. I know get to work daily in mentoring the younger generation and have a lot of fun and fulfillment doing it.
What does it take to become successful in network marketing?
Be willing to pay the price. There will be some sort of price to pay. Everybody’s price is different. For me it was 8 years of struggling in different business ventures, getting fired from 6 plus different jobs, going through foreclosure, going through potential law suit when I was in real estate and almost having to file bankruptcy.
My “WHY” of retiring both my parents and funding the gospel advancement, missionaries, and ministries is what kept me moving forward in those low times. Your “WHY” has to be bigger than your problems. My parents are in the business with me and I’m on track to retire them and this upcoming June 7th I get married and going on 6 month long term missionary trip loving on people and sharing the good news with my soon to be wife Gisela Najera.
Who are your mentors?
Jesus, Tom Alkazin, Tom Challan, Jeffery Combs, and Dani Johnson.
What is the key to Duplication and Building Leaders?
Learning to let go of the spotlight. Not being the king, but the king maker. Raising up and giving the spotlight to the next upcoming leader developing them seeing their success more important over yours.
What advice would you give to someone entering network marketing?
Get deeply involved in personal development. Learn to quiet that little voice in our heads that hinders us from taking action.
