Juanita and Vicente Navarro
A paycheck with peace of mind – “You could say we were doing OK financially [prior to starting our Amway™ business],” Juanita Navarro says, “because we were both working.” (He worked as a chef in a restaurant; she as an office receptionist.) “But we each put in 10- to 12-hour days and had one day a week to rest. That didn’t leave much time for us as a family.”
When a family friend suggested they look into the Amway business opportunity, they liked what they saw. At an open meeting, “We saw people, some of whom we knew, looking successful and excited,” Vicente recalls.
“We started our Amway business for the potential money,” Juanita admits, “but now we’re building it to leave a better legacy for our family and to help other families succeed in this country.” Vicente adds, “We also appreciate having more time to spend together and with our kids,” (Francisco, 19 and an IBO; Vincent, 13; Emily, 7; and Victoria, 1). Knowing they can pay for college and travels brings “more peace of mind,” she says.
“We’re planning a week in Hawaii with our kids this summer,” Juanita continues. “We’d also like to spend more time on the beaches of Florida, which remind us of where we grew up in Mexico. Money was scarce in our childhood and now that we have a better lifestyle, our first goal is to have our own house.”
Marveling at how much life has changed, Vicente says, “I didn’t have a lot of education” going into the business. “I couldn’t read or write well.” To overcome that obstacle, “we had to reform ourselves so we could tell more people about this opportunity,” he says. In the end, a challenge like that doesn’t matter. The Navarros believe that “any person, once they’ve found their dream and their ‘why’ for building this business, can accomplish what we have.”
