What do you need to be an entrepreneur?
Desire, passion, vision and a mission. Being determined to develop your talents and abilities to their fullest, recognizing that they were given to us in order to live and perform by them.
What did inspire you to start your business?
The capacity of achieving independence, time management, better income, self fulfillment and pride. The opportunity to make a contribution to society, becoming a part of its improvement.
How did you finance it?
Interesting question. For 44 years I have been investing in the Martial Arts discipline, which has become the basis to my professional career. You may wonder what I am talking about; during my 33 years as Martial Arts instructor, developing behavior modification and character development programs, I have been able to develop the entrepreneurial attitude to become a leader, which led me to the achievement of 7 World Championships and 6 World Records among other achievements as an athlete. Holding such distinctions become my best financing actives for the present and future global business models.
People decide to join your projects for three reasons: They know you, they are attracted by your personality and they trust you. This combined with business alternatives of global scalability that require minimal investments of less than $ 1k, perhaps up to $ 5k.
Being Hispanic…Does it have any influence on your business?
Hispanics share a unique spirit of self-improvement and strength empowered by their passion on doing things. On the other hand, in my case as Puerto Rican, we have the advantage of being Bilingual, as we are educated both in Spanish and in English (as our second language). But with today’s technology language gave more opportunities.
In the face of adversity, how do you decide to keep going?
I only need to take a look at the process of everything that I have invested and done in order to be where I am now. The value that I give to those processes gives me the strength and focus to go on. We need to remember that it is not about what we have lived but what we are about to live…So we must live intensely.
What is the biggest challenge your business has faced?
Being an orphan since an early age, having lost everything, I had an accident where I received a 13,570 volts charge; it was uncertain if I would ever walk again. The moments that I lived after the accident gave me strength and helped me look at life from another angle. Today, I share that experience with my work team.
If you could change one thing about your business, what would it be?
The only thing that I would change is having started the use of development systems, duplicable in a way that would hold constant productivity.
What was your childhood ambition?
When I was eight years old, a World Champion told me that if I really wanted to, I could achieve anything I wanted, even become a World Champion myself! I believed in him and initiated my process, which was interrupted during the best time of my life by the loss of my parents, all the money and my accident. I was kept out of any competitions for twelve years. I was able to recover from all this with the use of nutraceutical technology in 2004. And being thirty-eight years old I was able to achieve my goals, including being a part of Team Bergamo, Martial Arts World Champions from ESPN-2.
Tell us about three entrepreneurs that you admire?
Wow its almost impossible to choose only 3 but here I go: Steven K. Scott (with the Book “The Richest Man Who Ever Lived”), Angel M. Nieves (the one that introduced me in the Direct Sales and Social Network Biz) and Alex Hoffman & Laura Boerr (both my direct upline sponsors in my actual Business ISAGENIX)
For business meetings: breakfast, lunch or dinner?
Depending on the audience, the product and the approach required, any of the 3 are effective to me.
What sacrifices on your personal life did you have to make in order to become a business success?
Investing everything I had, including all my time. However, the results are worth it.
What is your favorite quote?
VIVE LA VIDA! Which means: LIVE LIFE! (The name of our organization and brand)
It is difficult to be unconventional?
For those who are at the forefront of marketing models, it is quite normal, actually.
Biggest mistake made?
Not paying enough attention to the multi-level marketing business models sooner.
Do you consider yourself an innovator? Why?
Yes. Upon acquiring personal experience and combining it with the experience of other successful people, you get your personal formula for getting innovating results. Good or bad results, still from innovative efforts.
