Yolanda and Leoncio Croes
Never give up! – In his previous life, Leoncio Croes worked for the Aruba Tourism Authority trying to attract visitors to their sunny island in the Caribbean. Today, he is the one traveling around the world, thanks to his and Yolanda’s Amway™ business.
Recently back from Achievers in Washington, D.C., and a side trip to New York City, Leoncio can’t contain his excitement about the Amway business opportunity.
“This business speaks to my heart!” he says. “We’ve had our challenges along the way, but we just keep telling ourselves, ‘Never give up!’”
They’ve also overcome personal-growth stumbling blocks as well as bad financial investments. When Leoncio lost his job in early 2011, he and Yolanda refocused on their Amway business and took it to the next level: Emerald.
“I know where I’m going now,” he says. “We’re growing and learning every day and being blessed by the fundamentals of family, reward, freedom, and hope. Our vision is to reach Double Diamond in the next five years and leave a legacy to our children and grandchildren (Leony, 21; Leyon, 18; Loney, 17; and A.J., 4). The two oldest are IBOs, and the youngest can’t wait [to be one]!” he shares.
“We’re also excited to finally formalize our Live Your Dream Foundation, which serves underprivileged families on Aruba and Curacao,” Yolanda adds.
Envisioning how far their Amway business can take them, Leoncio muses, “Part of our dream is to share Christmastime with our leaders in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. We actually prefer snow and mountains!” he laughs.
