Alberto and Minerva Vázquez
On the track to hope and harmony – Before Alberto and Minerva Vázquez grabbed hold of the Amway™ business, they were like two high-speed trains passing in the night.
“We hardly saw each other because we worked opposite schedules,” recalls Minerva, formerly employed in hotel housekeeping. (Alberto was a dishwasher and prep cook.)
“Our time with the kids was always rushed,” she continues. “We weren’t the ones taking care of them or getting them to and from school because we had to work.”
It wasn’t the life they envisioned when they married.
Then a friend introduced them to Amway. Suddenly they had “faith and hope that we could accomplish great things through the business,” Alberto says.
In the beginning, getting on the same page – or track, if you will – was frustrating since they only saw each other in passing. However, “we could see this would improve as our business grew to the point where we could leave our jobs,” he remarks.
Determined to reach that point, the couple also had to overcome doubts created from past obstacles, including a lack of education, poverty, and low self-esteem. “We want to help people realize that success is possible despite your past,” Minerva says.
“The beautiful thing is that there are people in this business willing to help,” Alberto adds. “We’re so grateful to our sponsor and upline Diamonds for introducing us to this great business and to all of our associates for believing in us.”
Today, the Vázquez household hums at a gentler pace and everyone is on the same track.
“Minerva and I have improved our relationship as a couple,” Alberto is happy to report. “Our kids (Christian, 16; Emelyn, 8; and Alex, 3) see how we treat each other. They love it that we laugh and play together!”
The couple anticipate a future filled with hope, harmony, and family travels.
