Starting Over Later in Life
I learned the lesson of perseverance early in life. I built several multi–million dollar businesses with my partners and felt like my life was going smoothly. Then the economy plummeted and left me bankrupt.
As an older man, I knew I couldn't give up. I strived for new goals and started from scratch using the business savvy I'd acquired throughout the years. Luckily my business took off again, but at a big cost in another way—I lost my health.
Stress is a dangerous thing. My weight was out of control and I didn't make the time to exercise or diet. My idea of a good night was a tub of greasy popcorn on the couch with my family. Hobbling down the stairs while holding the rail was a common practice.
When my wife and I were introduced to Isagenix, the business opportunity intrigued me, but I was in denial about just how much I needed the products. Then one day I saw a picture of myself and felt like I was in shock. I didn't see myself. I saw three words, "tired, old and fat."
Now I'm 28 pounds lighter.* At 66–years–old, I feel younger than I ever have! I've replenished my body and can hike, ski and shoot hoops with my boys! I even impress them with my skills on the court.
