In 1991, a freak accident necessitated my having to undergo 4 lots of surgery and the 5th to be, was major neuro surgery, where the options weren’t stacked in my favour, I declined the surgery and decided to take control of my life - try and heal myself and find a way to create a passive residual income that would grow and not diminish even if I was taken out of the equation. I knew what Jean Paul Ghetty meant when he said that he would rather derive the benefit from the effort of a 100 people than derive 100% from his own effort . It was simple logic and straightforward sense. I found NWM to be the ONLY option open to me and gave it a real crack.
I joined 2 separate NWM Co’s that had a line of nutritional products and whilst they along with the myriad medications I was on, reduced symptoms by about 50 to60%, I could not get over the hill so to speak.
I joined 4 Life in 2002 February following a 5 minute ‘phone call from a close friend who is a naturopath; it took me just 4 minutes to make a decision to join and walk away from a company where I controlled 80% of Australasian business.
Today I have not only been blessed with the largest organisation in our company in Australasia, but have managed to re-build my body with immunological support provided by 4 Life’s world patented products and generate a passive residual income that is more than double that from my previous company.
