Patty and Alex Buitrago
We are messengers of hope – “Our sponsor asked me two questions that influenced my decision to build an Amway™ business,” says Alex Buitrago. “First, he said to me, ‘Think hard about the 14 years you’ve been in this country. Have you been here 14 years, or for one year repeated 14 times?’”
“Then he asked me, ‘How do you want to see yourself in five years? Think about the person at the bank who does what you do but has done it longer.’ I was in charge of my department so I looked at my boss. He’d been there 25 years and was waiting for his boss to die or change jobs in order for him to move up. He wasn’t a very happy person, and I didn’t want to end up like him.
“That’s when I found my reason for building an Amway business,” he says. “I realized it was the only way to change our future.”
And change it has – on so many levels.
“We’re a living testament to how spectacular Amway products are!” says Patty. From NUTRILITE® supplements to ARTISTRY® skincare, they’ve seen “incredible results.”
They’ve also seen family relationships deepen, their peace of mind grow, and their finances expand. Not only have Alex and Patty (a former real estate agent) left their jobs, they’re also close to reaching their goal of replacing Alex’s dad’s income so he can retire.
“Giving our parents and daughters (Alexandra, 16, and Adriana, 12) the lifestyles they deserve is important,” Alex says. “My parents and siblings are all building the business,” Patty adds. “It’s amazing how you make the decision to change your own little world and it turns into an opportunity to experience the enormity of what Amway created. We feel God has a very great purpose for our lives: that we are messengers of hope for families around the world.”
