Carlos and Carmen Bisonó
The business takes care of their needs and their dreams come true – “Giving is how we receive,” states Carmen Bisonó. And now that she and Carlos have had their needs met through their AMWAY™ business and learned how to dream, they’re excited about the philanthropic work ahead of them.
“I was actually praying for a miracle before we found Amway,” she says. Carmen ran a yogurt-making business at home, and Carlos refurbished cars. “We were not doing well financially, and our relationship was deteriorating.”
Because of the stress, Carmen was not feeling her best, and a friend recommended she try NUTRILITE® DOUBLE X® nutritional supplements. After taking them for a while, “I felt so much better!”
Carmen says. “I told her, ‘I need to sell this product,’ not realizing that Amway offered hundreds of other products as well!”
Carlos wasn’t buying it, however. “I had my doubts and fears, and was hurt that my wife didn’t respect my efforts to provide for the family.”
“I told him, ‘People are going to brush their teeth and take supplements every day. Who do you know that will buy a car today?’” she replies.
As their business began to grow, Carlos decided it was time “to prove myself a winner” – especially after his brother challenged him to make a certain amount of money or quit. “I did a 180-degree turn in all areas of my life,” he says. “My biggest dream – for our family to be right with one another – came true, thanks to our AMWAY business.”
Adds Carmen, “Our children (Nicole, almost 18, and Carlos Arturo, 15) have grown up in this business. They have big hopes and dreams, are very mature in their thinking, and are already giving back. They are the future of Amway.”
The Bisonós are very excited about starting foundations for orphans and kids with cancer. Carlos also wants to buy homes for his mom and his mother-in-law for all their support through the years.
