A New Career Can Make an Old Dream a Reality


TITLE: Sales Representative
FAMILY: Wife and four young children
RESIDES IN: Nebraska
START DATE: November 2013

Before Daniel found his niche in sales, he worked as a ranch hand on several ranches in Montana and Nebraska. He and his wife dreamed of having a ranch of their own, but they would have to overcome the limitations on their income.

Daniel decided then to pursue a sales career so they could advance toward their goals. He got his start selling security systems, but the job put him away from his family for weeks at a time.

Daniel learned about the Platinum sales opportunity through a fellow Platinum representative. Not only was Daniel interested in the residual income, but he found the four-day workweek very attractive.

Enhancing Quality Time at Home

Daniel began working in the field in November 2013, and his obvious knack for his new role led to his advancement into leadership. Daniel’s family is grateful to have him home every weekend, and they’ve been able to make plans for their own ranch because of the income Daniel has made in the field. The couple treasures the weekends they spend together with their four children, instilling important life lessons and teaching them how to manage the family ranch.

“I remember thinking that I wouldn’t be able to make it three or four weeks on my own,” Daniel’s wife said. “I had to dig down deep to find the strength to fix things, work with cattle and accomplish other things I never thought I would need to do on my own. I didn’t have a choice—it was do or die. Now, when I have a bad day, I know that I will get to see and talk to Daniel in a few days instead of a few weeks.”

Yet, as important as their dream of ranching is to them, Daniel points out that success is not measured by what we own or the money we make. “No success in life can compensate for failure at home,” he said.

“In my previous sales career, there were times when I questioned whether I was a good father and husband. Now, I know I am having a positive impact in my kids’ lives when I can see them on a regular basis.”
