Mike and Amy Harvey
Life is a field trip! – “We’re not the ones to study if you want to know how to go Emerald in two years or less,” jokes Mike Harvey. In fact, he and Amy often say, “Life is a field trip!” Their joie de vivre and stick-to-itiveness are, however, an inspiration to all who long for a better life.
Mike was a captain in the military, and Amy, a former MP, was home raising their two boys (Daniel, now 20, and Tim, 18). “Money was really tight for us, but Amy couldn’t get a job since we moved so often.”
Then somebody from church told Amy about a way she could make money from home no matter where they lived. “We went Platinum in two years,” Mike shares, “but then we faced a number of job challenges. If it wasn’t for our Amway™ business, we wouldn’t have been able to stay afloat.”
More than that, their Amway business allowed them to home school their boys and be involved in their sons’ scouting activities. “Both are Eagle Scouts and both are now IBOs,” Amy states proudly.
Perhaps the nicest surprise was when Mike’s parents in Chicago joined their team. (They’re now Rubies.) “We’re extremely close,” Amy says. “Having three generations involved in building this business has blessed us,” adds Mike, who’s been able to work from home as a financial planner.
Those days are winding down, however, now that they’ve achieved Emerald. Mike anticipates closing the books soon, buying a motor home, and spending more time “helping people build their businesses,” he says.
Avid golfers, he and Amy are also looking forward to hitting the links more. “We put that on the back burner for years,” she says, “and now we’re golfing some beautiful courses across the country, usually with our mentors. Like we’ve always said, life is a field trip!”
