I am Alberto Pando, and this is my LIMU Experience.
Before LIMU, we were living within the “system” — working hard enough to not get fired and getting paid enough to not quit. With four kids and a small farm to feed, we were living paycheck to paycheck. With no experience in network marketing, we took a leap of faith. Little did we know that an eight-minute LIMU video was about to change our lives. This was all thanks to a friend that we knew since high school who insisted we watch the video. That night I fell in love with the LIMU Experience.
Even without knowing anything about this business, we went 2K VIP in less than 48 hours. Before we knew it, we were 20K in less than 45 days. With LIMU Experience parties every day, our calendar was packed. We felt like superstars. We were set, and were on the fast track to success.
That summer, still not knowing much about network marketing, our LIMU business was starting to decline. “What was going on?,” we asked ourselves. We wanted to help our team, but we just didn’t have the skills to accomplish that. As a result, we found ourselves with only a few active Promoters.
We were faced with two choices: call it quits or start over. Still not sure on what to do, my daughter and I packed our bags, and drove over 16 hours to LIMU LIVE! in Memphis. We sat there and listened to leader after leader go up on stage and speak about not quitting. But it wasn’t until we heard Gary Raser on stage that it really hit home. We heard Gary talk about how he had to rebuild his organization several times. And how someone once asked him, “Are you going to give up on your dreams just because someone else gave up on theirs?” It felt like I was the only one sitting in the audience and he was speaking directly to me, as if he knew exactly what I needed to hear.
As I looked at my daughter and thought about my other three kids and wife back home, it was at that exact moment when I realized that somewhere along the line I had forgotten my “why”. We learned that if we wanted to rank up, we had to work as if we were already at that rank. If we want to get to 200K, then we have to work like a 200K, not like a 20K. We had to continue sharing the experience with everyone we met. And we learned that we needed to be coachable to coach.
When we got home, we sat down as a family and made a vow. We were NOT going to give up on our dreams just because a few people had given up on theirs. We agreed that LIMU continued to be our light at the end of the tunnel and the only way to reach that light was to continue, instead of sitting there hoping it would come to us. Now we are making a comeback with a more solid team.
But most importantly, we are teaching others how to duplicate our success. Promoters that previously stopped sharing have returned. We have no doubt that we’ll be successful and that our team will be successful with us.
Today we are more proud than ever to say, “We are the Pando family and we are LIMU!”
