Luis & Angela Ventura
Black Diamond • Coppell, Texas
"This country is the land of opportunity," said Luis Ventura. And he, like many others in OrGano Gold, is a living, breathing example of the truth in that statement. Luis immigrated to America 20 years ago. He gained employment first as a restaurant busboy.
"I asked my boss why the waiters were making more money than the busboys," Luis recalled. "He said it was because they have more responsibility. I said, 'Yeah, but I do most of the work.' He said, 'You are doing the hard work, but they are doing the mental work.' That clicked with me." He and Angela went Diamond in about seven months. He said their success came from focusing not only on their own dreams, but on helping others.
"When you take your eye off yourself and start helping other people, that's when you become a success," he said. "Focus on people who are very committed, help them reach the next level, and automatically you're going to get to the next one. When people know you're really there for them and willing to teach them everything you know, that's when the business explodes."
