Blue Diamond • Missouri City, Texas
When Emmanuel Bernstein sat down with Holton Buggs and Sam Bean to look at their new network marketing business, he wasn't blow away. That happened the next day, when Hurricane Ike stormed in.
"A couple of days later, there was a gas shortage because of the hurricane. When I went to get gas, I had to wait in a long line. And across the shopping center, there was an even longer line -- at Starbucks. Even during a disaster, people were waiting in line for coffee. So that’s when I said to myself that if I miss this opportunity, it might be the greatest mistake I ever make."
He joined the business in 2008, but didn't really get into it till 2010. When he did, he went Diamond in only five months.
"My main key to success is really working harder on myself than I work in the business," he said, "You’ve got to have the mindset of a successful person. You’ve got to be able to visualize what it is that you want in life. You’ve got to be able to set goals in where you’re trying to get to in life. Plan it, do it, review it, then keep going to the next phase. Just don’t quite. Don't ever, ever give up on you."
