Marina Bernal was “feeling pretty secure” in her job as a fast food restaurant manager when she learned about the AMWAY™ business opportunity. She received a salary and benefits and was obviously needed, putting in 10- to 12-hour days. The only downside was that she didn’t have a lot of time to spend with her son, Christopher (9).
Out of respect to her friend, she listened to the presentation. While she didn’t grasp at the time “how big AMWAY really is,” she did realize that independent business ownership could give her something her job never could: more control over her time and finances.
“As a single mom, that was important to me,” she says.
Free from her job now, “I get to schedule my day however I choose. And I don’t have to ask anyone’s permission!”
Avid travelers, Marina says she and Christopher “love to hop in the car or on a plane and just go.”
“I want my son to see the world and experience other cultures,” she says. Originally from El Salvador, Marina would like to build a hospital or non-profit to help the disadvantaged there. “There are so many people who need help, and we need to share what we have,” she believes.
Sharing the “good news” of the AMWAY opportunity with others is her favorite part of her business. “It’s like awakening their conscience, showing them the light at the end of the tunnel. They can have a better life through this opportunity.”
Marina fully endorses the AMWAY values of family, reward, and freedom and believes the reason she’s been able to enjoy them is because “I simply made the decision to take control of my life.”
She may still put in long days building her AMWAY business, “but it doesn’t feel like work to me,” she says. “I love what I do!”
