I was born in Manila, Philippines. My mom and my step dad, who was in the Navy at the time, brought us over to America when I was 4 years old. I never knew my biological dad since he never married my mom and eventually passed away. We landed in St. Joseph, MO when I was 4 years old and this is where I grew up and graduated from high school. I stayed in St. Joseph after college and went to Missouri Western State University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree with a Double Major in Marketing and Management. Besides getting a degree, my highlight of my college career was being part of Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity where I held many positions including Chapter President. Those were some fun days!
Right after college, Niki- my college sweetheart who became my wife moved to Tulsa, OK to be Independent Reps and
launch a display marketing book business with Reader’s Digest. We quickly rose to the very top of that company and earned several top awards like “Rookie of the Year” and “Rep of the Year”. We even moved to the Dallas, TX area to develop a territory there as well. Eventually, they asked me to get into management and earned another award “Manager of the Year” and eventually ran a start-up Division for them.
However, even at a young age I’ve always wanted to be an Entrepreneur. At about age 32, I started realizing that I wanted to get back to owning my own business, controlling my schedule and working with people that I wanted to work with. I was introduced to the Direct Sales Industry at that time and by age 33 had gotten to the top levels in our company. By age 33, I retired from Corporate America and became a full time Network Marketer/ Entrepreneur. It truly has been a fun, challenging and adventurous journey that has taken me around the world. I’ve been blessed to have organizations into the tens of thousands around the world.
I’ve traveled the world and spoke, taught and trained in front of tens of thousands of people in countries like Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hungary, Thailand, Ukraine and many cities across the US. I love sharing the story of how to control your own destiny by becoming an Entrepreneur and how to build a successful Network Marketing business. I’ve been able to meet so many awesome people around the world who I consider our friends and business partners.
I also show people how to earn a substantial income from home with just a computer and the internet. I use video marketing to grow my personal brand and business, teaching and training about home business success around the world via video conferencing and live events, creating training DVDs, cd sets and writing books.
Today,I reside in the Kansas City area where I’ve been blessed to still be married to the woman of my dreams, have 3 incredible children, a grandson and many friends who make life so enjoyable. We enjoy spending time together as a family and with friends, taking exotic vacations, sports, and laughing a lot.
My desire for you is that you would live a life with purpose, love people unconditionally, learn about different cultures, leave a legacy that will make future generations proud that you made a difference and to inspire you to truly live an abundant life!
