New Diamond Executive Carlos Concheso—Invest In You!
Congratulations to Carlos Concheso from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, on achieving the rank of Diamond Executive. Here’s what he had to say on reaching this impressive milestone…
"My brain still can’t process the fact that I am a Diamond Executive. Not that I didn’t believe that I could achieve it, because that was step No. 1. But I’m not going to lie…it is shocking when your dreams become your reality.
"I couldn’t be more thankful for my great friends and upline John and Leslie Kziasek, Matt and Kim Curtis, Steve and Gina Merritt, Bob and Linda Robinson, and Charlie and Debbie Kalb. They have been guiding and supporting us since day one.
Hard Work Pays
"What can I tell you about my team? Those who truly know me, know how emotional I get when I talk about them. I can barely look at them when I’m on stage being recognized without feeling an overwhelming sense of love for them. Without a doubt, I’m truly blessed with the most humble and hard-working people on the planet. We can’t go more than a few hours without talking to each other. For the past six months, we have worked extremely hard, but we have been having a ton of fun as well. Our calendar is full every single night with tasting parties, one-on-ones, conference calls, webcasts, etc. As a result, more than 40 people in our team have become Square Qualified (totaling close to $100,000 in cash bonuses), 15 Jeeps have been earned, three Rubies have been broken, as well as many Gold, Silver, and Bronze Executives.
Blessings in Adversity
"I won’t ever forget my last week of Diamond qualification. I had emergency surgery to remove my appendix. I was like: REALLY? I literary asked the doctor, 'Can I please get this done next week?' I kept looking at the door and the thought crossed my mind to head out the door with the IV hanging from my veins. I kept asking God, Why is this happening to me? Little did I know, in the three days that I was there I sponsored my two nurses in the business (I’m still following up with the doctor and others in there). The team got closer together, more than ever before. They worked so hard for that Diamond to happen that I don’t even know where to begin! That surgery also allowed me to slow down, relax a little, and charge my batteries! Don’t ever doubt God; everything happens for a reason.
Shout Out for Corporate
"There is no possible way I could have achieved this without the support from corporate as well. I have never met people with better hearts than those guys there. Way too many to mention! But if I have to give a shout out to someone, that one is Linda Castaneda. God bless her! She has gone above and beyond to help my team even at night and on weekends! She might be changing her cell phone number soon! ;)
"If you love traveling, make sure to run for your life and hit Diamond soon. In the last three months, I have earned a trip to Utah (Ruby Fly-In), Maui (Diamond Destination), and the most recent one was Brazil (Hat Trick Promotion). Wow! Brazil has been on my “bucket list” for a while. Come on! A visit to the MORE Project, an Amazon expedition, and FIFA World Cup game tickets…can you say, “Fired up”?
My Advice to You Future Diamond Executives
"I truly hope and pray that you already have a date in your mind to go Diamond. Do as I did: commit in front of your upline in writing. Make sure they have a copy and you keep one. Tape it to your fridge, mirror, car dashboard…everywhere! Make sure you write down your WHY really big on it. Your WHY has to be so HUGE and specific that when you think of it, it brings tears to your eyes and goose bumps everywhere.
"People will be mean to you, they will make fun of you, they won’t believe in you, and 9 out of 10 people you talk to will probably come up with a million excuses of why they can’t join your team. On the other hand, many will join and will quit. No wonder why statistics show that 98% of the population ends up dead or dead broke by the age of 65. But, guess what? The good news is that you truly just need 2–3 leaders to say yes in order to go Diamond and above!
"Attending every major function and being part of the MVP Lifelong Learning is mandatory if you want to succeed in this business and in life in general. If you are not learning, you are not growing. If you are not growing, you are dying. The best return on investment you can make is in yourself! So do not go one more day without jumping all in our MVP system. It works!
"I can’t wait to celebrate with you and your family all your hard work and commitment later this year in Maui. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. God bless you. Fired up!"
