20 Seconds to React – Dominick Miller
With little more than 20 seconds to react, Army Ranger Dominick Miller was falling through the air when he realized that his parachute was tangled. Heavily weighted with gear and buffeted by high winds, he slammed into the ground, breaking his vertebrae.
Dazed and grateful to be alive, he carried on.
Only after completing a 12-mile road march with a 100-pound pack on his back and enduring two weeks of grinding pain did Dominick come to realize the seriousness of his injury.
Mental toughness and fortitude, instilled in him from his military training, got Dominick through the physical and psychological hurdles he faced during months of grueling rehabilitation. After completing most of his recovery, he made the difficult decision to leave the Rangers, ending his military career as a paratrooper. A few years later, he began to pursue the AMWAY™ business opportunity in earnest.
Today, Dominick and his wife Danielle are expanding the business that affords them the time and flexibility to be together with their 2-year-old daughter, Hailey, and to grow in relationships with family and friends.
He draws on the discipline and teamwork he learned in the military, and the lessons of his parachuting accident and recovery.
“It taught me that we’re not invincible. Your life can change any day or time,” he says. That’s why he believes in working for your dreams. “It’s true when they say, ‘It’s never work when you love what you’re doing.’”
The average monthly gross income earned by “active” IBOs was $115 (U.S.)/$181 (CAN.).
The percentage of IBOs who achieved Double Diamond and above qualification in FY08 was .0038%.
Based on an independent survey during 2001, approximately 66% of all IBOs of record were found to be active. “Active” means an IBO attempted to make a retail sale, or presented the Amway Independent Business Owner Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or attended a company or IBO meeting in the year 2000.
“Gross Income” means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus the amount of Performance Bonus retained. There may be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation. The success depicted may reflect income and investments outside the IBO Plan.
