So far in this Manifesting Abundance blog I have only written about MY experiences. I will now start incorporating stories from some of the top leaders on my team, sharing how this amazing company has changed their lives.
First up is Joel Bloomquist. Four years ago, Joel was a complete stranger and now he is one of my best friends and top leaders. He has been on numerous training events and Dreamtrips. This company has dramatically changed his mindset and perspective through personal development. I’m very happy to share his story as a guest blog. He writes:
“While on a military assignment in Las Vegas, I was shown the company’s opportunity from a good friend, Melanie Levitz, who was presenting the concept to me on behalf of her friend, Sam Curby. I quickly found myself on a call with Buddy Buck from Seattle and he asked me two questions:
- Do you want to make money?
- Do you want to travel?
The answer to both were not the answers he was looking for, but he did mention the company’s huge emphasis on personal growth and development. After 10.5 years as a pilot in the military I was not fulfilled with what I thought it would provide. I could tell it was time for change. The desire to become the person that God intended me to be is the main reason I decided to join.
I immediately took advantage of a Personal Growth and Development Dreamtrip called “Journey,” a three-day seminar that was designed to focus on “You.” Quite frankly, this company found me at just the right time and I credit it as a gift from God that saved my life. What I didn’t realize then was that the concepts I was learning were:
- Leading me to focus less on myself and more on serving others
- Making me financially healthy-minded
- Causing me to be a part of something greater than myself
After I had attended Journey I went to United, the company’s international convention. My belief and exposure began to build. Then I went on my first Dreamtrip to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico and my belief in what the company could provide grew stronger. I was at a luxury resort for less than half the cost — that was a no brainer! The culture of the company and the growth I was seeing in myself moved me to begin to take action in the business opportunity, more than a year after I joined.
While I am not a “fast burner in the opportunity,” the growth in my business began to change my mindset toward making money and traveling more. I saw that I wanted a lifestyle that would not involve working for anyone else. I wanted to work with amazing team members from all over the world and wanted the unique gift that God placed in my heart to be utilized. I am now on my way to being a Director with the company and leaving a legacy to my future family. What lies ahead is up to God and as I give this all back to Him, by faith and consistent effort, life is becoming very different. I am looking forward to it!”
