José and Oralia Ocampo
Their dream became reality – “I feel like a chick that’s just broken free of its shell and is looking around, trying to take in the new world around him,” says José Ocampo.
“Sometimes we wonder if it’s a dream or reality,” adds Oralia.
When the Ocampos started their AMWAY™ business, both were working in an embroidery factory, but opposite shifts. “Sometimes we didn’t see each other for a week!” she says.
Because they didn’t have a car, the couple had to rely on their bikes and city buses to get around. They began renting out the bedrooms in their apartment – and sleeping on the floor in the living room – just so they’d have money to invest back into their business.
Then José’s dad died. “We didn’t have enough money to all go to the funeral in Mexico,” Oralia recalls. José, who fell ill during his visit, was gone for four months. “While he was away, our business actually grew!” That realization prompted them to ramp up their efforts to achieve their dreams. “We’re so grateful for our upline’s help,” he adds.
Recently, they purchased a four-bedroom home – and paid cash. “We didn’t bring a spoon or towel with us. Everything is new,” says Oralia. “We have three cars in the garage now – all paid for. We don’t owe anything to anybody.”
While the new house and cars are nice, José says, “What makes us the most excited is seeing people in our team moving up and knowing what’s awaiting them.”
Sitting down to a meal as a family (Ivan, 21; Hugo, 18; Alondra, 14; and Ruby, 3) is the icing on the cake. “We never had time for that before,” says José. “Teaching them about this business is the best inheritance we can give them.”
“We’re living magical moments,” José continues. “We’re committed to helping others fight for their dreams so they can enjoy this lifestyle, too.”
Today the Ocampos are in a position to impact many lives. “Helping our families is a big priority,” says Oralia. “We also want to help needy children, and the elderly have always touched my heart.”
