a nice life
Chris and Alan
Chris and Alan both had successful careers but what they craved was time together and financial security...
We started out in life wanting to be successful. To have a nice house, nice car, nice holidays, a nice life. We spent many years climbing the corporate ladder and had successful careers in the manufacturing industry as directors of plc companies. I was Merchandise Director for a swimwear company and my husband Alan was Business Director for a large textile manufacturing company.
We had ‘good jobs’ but with that came long, long hours, stress, job insecurity, health challenges and no time to spend with the family and to enjoy life. I decided I wanted out of the ‘Rat Race’ but didn’t know how.
Nearly twenty years ago, I attended an event to find out about how some outstanding natural products by Forever could benefit my family’s health and wellbeing. I was excited to try the products and inspired by the presenter’s story of how she and her husband had built a business with this company, working part-time yet earning a six-figure income! I wondered, with their help, could we do that too?
We checked out the company; founded twenty years before, cash-rich, in over 150 countries. We were sceptical, it all looked ‘too good to be true’ BUT we thought – what if? There was no risk. We could start our business part-time, around our other commitments. For the first time we saw FREEDOM – time and money.
I started our Forever business in seven-to-ten hours a week, in pockets of time around our other commitments (two teenagers, ailing parents and two very full-time jobs). It seems incredible now when we look back as we had no mobile phones, there was no internet and no social media to help us reach out to people. The only tools we had were the phone, our Business Owner Box, a car and our enthusiasm, and a deep-down belief that this business worked for others, so why not us?
Within six months, in 1998, I was able to give up the day job. Eighteen months later, seeing my lifestyle, Alan sacked the boss to join me. Within three years we were earning £100,000+ working half the hours we had in our careers. We had qualified for everything on the marketing plan, were travelling the world with Forever and enjoyed a residual income that gives true financial security.
Today we enjoy a quality of life we did not even dream of! We have a beautiful home in Wales, drive top of the range cars, have the freedom to travel the world and choose how we spend each day. We have financial security and have created a legacy for our family. We have the time and income to create special memories with our children and grandchildren and make dreams come true. We make a difference in people’s lives and are so grateful and proud to be a part of the Forever family.
