In this Living Team National Success Story segment, 2004 Eagle Winners and Double Platinums Robert and Donna Fason share their story from their humble beginnings to the success they have achieved working their Team National business. As Donna simply states, “his family was in the dairy business and my family was in the dairy business, so when we got married we went in the dairy business, cause that’s all we knew.” Robert adds, “we didn’t make a lot of money, we lived in a 12 x 60 mobile home that was 20 years old when we bought it and we went 10 years without a vacation.”
So what made them seek a different opportunity? They had to go through a forced auction and had to sell off everything except for their mobile home and an old beat up truck. Going broke in the dairy business forced Donna to go to work in a factory. As Donna puts it, “our normal day meant Robert had to get up at 3 a.m., go to the dairy barn for my dad and milk the cows and I got up at 5 a.m. and take our daughter to the babysitter and go to work. After work, I’d pick up my daughter and swing by the barn so we could see each other then go home and get supper ready. Once Robert came home, he would eat dinner and then go to bed to do it all over again. We knew there was more out there, we just didn’t know what.”
She goes on to say, “I think we’ve always been dreamers. Whatever little time we did have together, we would spend it dreaming about how our lives were going to be better some day. But at that point we didn’t have the direction.” Robert states that when they got married he “promised her more than just getting greasy in that factory.”
As it turns out, a friend of Robert’s called him up and wanted him to look at something and he agreed. He already had his mind made up that he was not going to do anything else, but due to his friendship he took a look at the Team National opportunity. As Robert says, “when he saw the Team National compensation plan, the numbers just blew it away.”
This was totally different than what this couple has ever dreamed. They earned enough money in the first 60 days working their Team National business to pay cash for a new vehicle for Donna. Not only did Donna get a new vehicle, but she got it without a payment book. As Robert says, “we focused our first year on getting out of debt. Things kept getting better every year. I was even able to get my mom a new house for Christmas. So Team National has been good to us.”
The financial rewards this couple has experienced has been phenomenal, almost beyond their wildest dreams. But the fun that they have while working Team National is almost like they don’t go to work. In closing Robert says, “if you find something you love to do, you’ll never have to work another day in your life. The lifestyle and the people we’ve become is priceless!”
