Testimonials from Senior Advisors

I started as a Senior Advisor with PBA back in September of 2009. I am one of those c-level executives who was laid off and wasn’t sure what I was going to do. First thought – replace what I had. I soon learned it wasn’t going to be an easy task. Then I wondered if I really did want to replace what I had because life as I knew it had changed and my thought was that a door had closed and a window opened, was I willing to peek through it to see what might be on the other side? The answer was yes.
But how to go about it?

It seemed timely to get an email from someone at PBA asking how my job search was going. I said “terrible” and they called me. I was quite leery at first (never having been an entrepreneur before running my own business), but I soon became comfortable with the non-invasive and non-pressurized conversation I was having. I was being educated for free on the various business opportunities that were within my reach and I appreciated it.

To make a long story short, I turned around the call and asked them if I could do what they were doing and the answer was “yes”, and they gave me the low down on what it would take to make it work. After doing my due diligence I decided to take a chance and attend the training. I am quite used to dealing with influential people making major decisions so I knew I could go to this training session and if my gut didn’t tell me it was the right thing (along with all the other tangible due diligence I did), I could walk away. Needless to day, here I am a year later still deeply involved with PBA.

My experience has been enlightening. I am used to being a top-performer in whatever field I participate in and I felt this would be no different – and I was right. The perks: getting quality leads/having a process that is tried and true to follow/being able to use my intelligence and personality to talk with executives around the country/having a schedule as flexible as I decide to make it/enjoying what I do/making money at it/helping others, etc. This is an opportunity to not only make great money, but to do it in a profession that allows you to help people make important career/life decisions.

One year later I am not only making money, but I just bought up to an increased level within the company as I plan on doubling my earnings in 2011. This is it – this is what I was meant to do – this is what I love to do – this is what I excel at. PBA has given me the opportunity to be the boss of my future, to control aspects of my life that are important to me. Do I work hard and smart at it – yes! Do I win some and lose some – yes! Do I get up every single day and enjoy what I do – YES!

I am a perfect example of someone who was given an opportunity, embraced it and am not only reaping the financial rewards, but am enjoying every minute of it.
