Hi our names are Masa & Miguel, and we want to share our story with you.
We grew up in Europe - Masa is from Slovenia and Miguel is from Spain. Our story begins in Singapore one June afternoon in 2004, where we boarded the same plane for Australia …
Yes, this is how we met - and while that is a long story in itself, 9 months later (2005) Miguel decided to follow me (Masa) to Australia, where I was working as a medical researcher. And while Miguel was a trained commercial pilot, he could not work in Australia because of his visa initially.
While we had great education, we didn’t really have a plan for financial success, let alone creating freedom.
This is when we first started thinking about what he could do instead of working in a dead end 9-5 job. At one point we were driving back home on a Sunday afternoon and we came up with the idea of opening a joy-flight business with a charter plane … only to find that just the insurance to open that business would have cost over 1M dollars.
With no capital to invest and no business knowledge, a few weeks later we met a 17 year old girl, who told me she helps people start business from home for a very small investment. It sounded interesting.
A week later we were sitting around our kitchen table with this girl’s mother and got very excited to sign up in our first network marketing opportunity (this was November 2005). We had no business experience, never heard of network marketing, but we were committed to making this work. There were many sleepless nights on the phone, building business in Europe where we had family and friends and trying to learn as much as we could, listening to endless tapes, CDs and going to events.
