Your Ambit Why
Most Ambit Consultants are motivated by something bigger than a paycheck – something we call their “Ambit Why.” And there are as many “Whys” as there are Ambit Consultants, with many seeing their goals change over time. Whatever your “Why” is, we invite you to share it here on AmbitSuccess.com, via Twitter or Facebook.
My 1st why was just to make an extra $500 for diapers and formula for my then 5 month old son. Now, 9years later, married and a recent home owner my why has evolved to keeping my wife a stay at home mom and my daughter to never know what the inside of a daycare looks like.
My why changes often. My original Why was and still is ending homelessness. I composed and published a tell story on CreateSpace about my painful experiences in GA, DC, and PA. Now I am working on my NYC experiences about dealing with homelessness, painful professional and personal experiences, MLM experiences (former and current), and way of life. Now I relocated back to hometown Erie,PA for more support with AMBIT and publishing tell-all stories. My WHY is ending generational curses involving mental health related, chronic underemployment/unemployment, and institutionalized racism socially and locally. I am aiming to break the curse and every chain.
My WHY has changed over the years. My husband now works onshore, which is a blessing. I continue to do this business because it has blessed me beyond belief. Because of the personal development it has given me, when I faced breast cancer in 2014 I was able to stay on a straight path, stay plugged in and motivated. Hearing you have cancer is life changing and knowing that I had a team behind me praying and lifting me up, made all of the difference. I am now cancer free and want to use my sphere of influence to not only help others with their personal development, but show them this amazing business that really changes your life. I want to share my story of how my faith in God, my positive attitude and perseverance got me through each day and encourage others to find strength in their storm. I am thankful for each day I have with my 3 boys and my husband and that through everything, Ambit still send me a pay check. God is good all the time!
It has given me a way to earn money that I would not have had before. I have been able to help others save money on their electric bills so far. I am in the process of helping others earn financial freedom. I am disabled so if I can make money with Ambit Energy you can too.
Our oldest son was born with two rare birth defects. The road has been long and yet that is a blessing because the doctors predicted his road to be short. In fact as I write this story I am sitting on a day bed in a hospital as he is awaiting another surgery. Our youngest is healthy and he has another challenge which impacts learning. As any good set of parents, we worried about what the future might be like for them when we are no longer on this earth. However we had no idea how to set up finances for what we really wanted to leave for them. Then Ambit came across our path. The fact that we can will this business to our boys, is the reason we do what it takes to build this business now. We see, touch and love our why every day. Our boys are who inspires us to be better each day.
When I first heard of Ambit my oldest sister asked me to do her a favor and be her customer. I didn't understand what she was doing so I told her I had to discuss it with my boyfriend. When she called the 2nd time I gave in and became her customer. I had never thought there was a possibility to do something more with my life then work hard for someone else until one day I felt like I had lost it all. 2 divorces, my back injuries, my mothers passing, then my CEO passing and his wife selling the company I worked for. My sister's shared the opportunity with me and I realized my dreams to have time with family and to retire worry-free are possible with Ambit Energy. I have never looked back and I'm so grateful I have 2 sister's who cared enough to share this opportunity with me and believe in me.

I want my husband and I to be able to retire, very comfortably, by the time our kids graduate from high school. What motivates me the most is my desire to do something significant in my lifetime. In this business, I can help others become financially independent. I can't imagine a better gift to give someone.
My primary why is to help my daughter pay of what will be tremendous student loans. A college education is so important to our young people, but the high cost of a college education is a tremendous burden on young people. I want my daughter to be able to enjoy life and not have to worry about student loans. I also would like to eventually have a vacation home in a warm climate where I can enjoy my retirement years from my job and where my family can visit us.
To have extra Income to help financially support the poor and the mission of struggling Faith-based non-profit Community Organizations.
To thrive, not just survive. To have all the things I need, most of what I want and plenty enough to share. To have all my years of hard work and helping others achieve finally pay off in a big way.
A promise to keep, for my family and my children's children! This has long term potential. To bless those under my care: my family, friends and others. For medication for my kidney transplant.
I started my Ambit Journey a year ago, right after graduating from college. My goal is to pursue a doctorate and teach at a university, but I graduated with so much student loan debt that it was difficult to think about more schooling. Now Ambit is helping me pay my loans so I can focus on graduate school. I am also recently engaged, which has added a new "Why" to the mix. I want us to be able to retire by the age of 30 and spend the rest of our lives living carefree and helping others. The first year of my Ambit Journey has been amazing. I loved AMBITION 2013 and look forward to AMBITION 2014. My parents are now in the business with me, building their Ambit business to supplement their teachers' retirement. I look forward to the rest of this journey and the many more people that I will meet.
My "Why" is very important to me, which will be very important to many others down the road. As a new Christian man, I want to take the money I make with Ambit and help my mother get her dream house with a wrap around porch, along with helping the rest of my family. I'd also like to help renovate my church I-61 Ministries, as they are a fairly new church. I want to help my friend and his family, then go out in the community and bless people who are in need. God is calling me and I believe Ambit will provide and deliver my "Why." I have much faith in The Lord who gives me comfort knowing I'm with a great company.
I was first introduced to the Ambit Opportunity by a friend from church named David Lee. After finally convincing my wife that this was the opportunity we had been looking for, we joined the Ambit Energy team of over a quarter million Consultants so that when we started to have children my wife would be able to stay at home and raise them as she has always dreamed of doing. Since then Ambit has provided me with the opportunity to earn free electricity for my family, build my own business, meet new and interesting people from all over the country and provide a better standard of living for my family. Creating income part time in this business has taught me the value of true relationships and that I do not have to live my life trading hours for dollars with nothing to show for it in the end. Ambit Energy has showed me that passive residual income is the true solution for financial freedom!
I would like for my husband and me to be able to retire (very comfortably) when our kids graduate from high school.
Nosotros vimos en Ambit una nueva forma de vida para nosotros y nuestra familia. Con Ambit podemos lograr la gran mayoría de nuestros sueños como ayudar a nuestros padres, tener asegurada la universidad de nuestros cuatro hijos, ayudar a nuestra comunidad latina a conseguir su luz gratis y dejarles un dinero en el bolsillo, y ser reconocidos como personas trabajadoras y luchadoras. Mi esposo José y yo agradecemos a Ambit por esta gran oportunidad
I was one of those that was successfully doing my job as president of a multi-million dollar business. I put in my eighty hours a week just like everyone else. Then the unexpected happened: I was bitten by a tick that caused me to become medically unable to perform my position. You never think that something like that can happen to you, but it can when you least expect it. I married my beautiful wife, built a beautiful home and one year later our lives changed. I want to build a legacy for my wife and children! Prior to the Ambit Energy Opportunity, this goal was unobtainable. Now it is possible to build enough residual income to provide for them as they deserve. Although I am physically unable to work, my mind still works great and this is something I can do from home.
Grand Children's College, Vacations, no more 9-5, and... Out of the Rat Race Complete Freedom! The Sky is Just the Beginning, not the Limit!
I want to be a father who will be a part of my baby girl's life. I want to see every dance recital, softball game, tennis match, talent show, etc. I want her to see two proud parents there that are going to be proud with whatever her little heart desires. No regrets, and no worries or stress about bills or money or future retirement. That will be perfect
I do not have a Vision Board-I have a Vision MAP, because a map means you are going somewhere and you have direction (Wisdom from my friend, Leona Lee). My map says financial freedom and the opportunity to retire from other JOBs (just over broke), renovate my home and travel...just a bit...and see something (preferably tropical) with my hubby, Donny.
As a government worker who is gone 10 hours a day, I want to spend time with my daughter before she is grown up and away at college. I want to be able to afford to send her to whatever college she wants to go to! With 22 years in, I still have 10 to go and I want to retire in two or three years. I started with Ambit, in the non-Ambit territory of VA, with the resolution of making it work. Now that VA is opening up, I can take my business to another level locally and change my friend's lives as well. Thank you Ambit Energy for this opportunity!
I began my Ambit Journey because I was tired of having someone dictate to me how much I was worth and for how long I would be able to work. I also decided that I was allergic to having a boss. More importantly, I found that Ambit Energy could help me to provide the finances necessary for me to help my Mom retire on time AND help my sister to go free herself through art. Lastly, this would give me the opportunity to experience financial and time freedom, and to help many others to have the same experience. I believe that Ambit Energy is the greatest vehicle on the planet and of our time.
My 2014 "Why" is to take my whole family to AMBITION and have my Ambit income pay for the whole trip!
The reason I joined Ambit was because I want security for my grandchildren. I lost my son in 2008 and he had two children. Plus I have more children and I don't want them to struggle like I did, living pay check to pay check. I want them to have the best start in life! Being with Ambit opened that door for me. I can now do this on behalf of my son in heaven.
To have more time and money to do the things I really want to do with my family and friends, and to help others achieve their goals as well. This truly is the greatest opportunity set before us to achieve our goals!
We thought deeply about our "Why." Angel and I met 29 years ago when we were 20-years old. Life seemed perfect, and we did not have much but we had each other and that was all we needed. We met in college, married and had children. We worked hard and long for the next 20 years. Our children are now grown and successful and we have a grandchild. Our "Why" starts now! We will share our lives and our love with our family because we will have time to do so. We will take care of our mothers, who have loved us dearly and play in the sand with our grandson and go fishing like grandpa did with me. There are missing moments in our lives that we can't get back. Going forward, we can share every moment with the ones we love and help those who need us, and hopefully make a difference in the lives of the people we know now and meet in the future. Ambit's Opportunity is now the compass of our life. Dreams do come true, just follow your compass and believe.
My Ambit "Why" is to start building a legacy for my children, take care of my mom and be able to have time and financial freedom.
My financial struggles and hardships brought my adrenalin up to continue my Ambit Energy business. Borrowing money from people to pay my monthly apartment rent, car insurance and to supply my personal needs and to help my family financially as my monthly paycheck cannot accommodate my basic needs. These are now things of the past. Ambit Energy enables me to stand up to monetary hardships, and the company raises my hope up again. Now I am capable to give back and double the favor to people who helped me when I was down. Ambit Energy truly changes people's lives. I am very thankful to Ambit energy and of course, to our Almighty God who is continuously giving me favors and high abundance as well.
I have always enjoyed helping and making home with my own business. Ambit gives me the best of both worlds. I am working towards leaving a legacy for my children. I would love to have the extra money for surprise trips, shopping and added extras for the home. The free energy is a bonus to work for and will save us money and that's always a good "Why!" Thanks Ambit for this wonderful opportunity!
I started my Ambit journey so that I could help my Mom to retire on time, help myself and my sister to pay off some debt, build savings for my niece and nephew and to experience the benefits of time and financial freedom. I also saw Ambit as a vehicle that would allow me to work with others in order to help them achieve their goals and dreams. I would be remised if i didn't mention that I think Free Energy is the greatest idea on the planet, and that is something that I am very excited about. Thanks Ambit!!
My inspiration is my three beautiful boys and my husband. I would love to spend more time with them. Having a full time job, I cannot spend quality time with my family. I would also love to have financial freedom to give my family the best life possible .
Our Ambit "Why" is our Children. My daughter Jessica is a Senior at East Carolina University and will be graduating with $120,000 in student loans. I would like to pay it for her so she can be debt free. For our son Michael, wife Alyssa, two grandchildren (Michael and Maylee), daughter Sarah and grandchildren Kayla and Leland. We want to be able to make their lives debt free and our grandchildren have the choice of any college they would like to go to.
Financial freedom. The ability to do what I want, when I want, wherever I want. To have more time with my two beautiful kids and to pay their college tuition. To vacation anywhere, anytime. To travel the world. To land in a Sikorsky on the helipad on the Fountvielle in Monaco. To own a fine Italian automobile, and to eventually retire from office life and work my Ambit business from a 40 ft powerboat.
We want to be able to support our five lovely children and give them a better future. God gave us a beautiful family so we can spend quality time with them. As an acupuncturist and fitness instructor, Mordechai works too many hours to try to make ends meet. We joined Ambit for the Opportunity of helping others improve their lives, as a result we're looking forward of achieving FINANCIAL FREEDOM!!
It's all about retirement! In 2011, we decided it was time to fulfill our dream of owning a fitness studio. We let our home go in a short sale, voluntarily turned in our car and divested our entire 401k to invest in unique, high-end equipment and, opened our studio! In the past two years we've almost broke-even with the studio. However we are not yet able to pay ourselves, forcing my wife and I to take on nine part-time jobs and other businesses to make ends meet.
When I was shown this Opportunity, I immediately saw the big picture. Ambit Energy is the vehicle that will allow me, at the age of 56, to rebuild our retirement fund in less than five years. I will help my wife retire from each of those jobs and, will join her in retirement and renew our vows on our 25th anniversary in 2017! Retirement isn't my only goal, I want to establish college funds for each of my current/future grandchildren, help my kids repay their college loans, practice charitable giving and travel worldwide with my wife!
2013 was a very difficult year for me and my family. I began struggling in my new career, which I had worked hard in college to achieve. I found myself going through a divorce and becoming a single parent again after 10 years, along with watching a loved one battle cancel then pass away in March. I found myself depressed and without hope. After becoming an Independent Ambit Consultant in June of 2013, I began to feel more confident, started helping others and creating financial freedom for myself and my family. My "Why" changes each day, however, Ambit is creating financial freedom, the ability to be my own boss and help others along the way. Thank you God for bringing Ambit into my life at the right time for the right reason!
My Ambit "Why" is the ability to help needy people around the world. All CA kids need help! The Privacy for all Students coalition need donations to help them!
At 53 yrs old, I find myself wondering how long I can last and I'm looking for a retirement plan that will allow me to walk away from real estate someday in the near future. I simply want MORE for myself and my family. Something that will grow with time if I'm willing to apply the effort now. My future is much brighter thanks to Ambit Energy!
I am a self-employed Architectural Draftsman and have been studying and preparing for Ministry for three years. I always knew that without a miracle in finances I would always be distracted from ministry by the need to provide for my family. In May 2012 my brother showed me the Ambit Opportunity. I immediately realized that Ambit would give me a way to provide for my family while I could focus on God's work. My Ambit "Why" is as simple as Jesus' command. "To be a servant to my fellow man."
To be free from burdens of being at a job with strict guidelines! I want to be able to see the world and see my surroundings to promote more of God's word. To be free to lend and not borrow. Just to be released from the chains of a job, student loans and major credit card debt and not worry about what I am going to feed my children.
My "Ambit Why" is actually to have less. Less of the feelings associated with not having financial freedom. Less dread when I'm out to eat and I don't know if my debit card will be declined. Less feeling guilty that I can't pick up my son from school, or stay home with my sick grandmother. Less of letting someone else control and dictate my financial worth!!
I have been ill for the past 10 years. Two heart attacks, a stroke and lung disease. With chronic illness comes a mountain of medical bills. I had a ton of loans and no way to pay them all. I was praying for a way out. Within seven months of joining Ambit, I paid off six of those loans. My "Why" has now grown. I still have many loans to pay off, but I'm a pastor and desire to work at my church for free, so that I am not a burden to the church finances.
Eight years ago I was in Beijing sitting down with a friend who was a VP of a multi-national company. He had just reached a $1,000,000 and was asking me about my fledgling company. He then asked me a question no one had ever asked before, "So what's your exit strategy?" Exit strategy? I stammered, " I hope someone values it when I want to exit and can come up with the money to buy it." I realized, however, that I had no exit strategy I only had a "hope and a prayer." Hope and prayer are great but certainly are no strategy! This bothered me from time to time for the last eight years. It was only when I was introduced to Ambit that I got an "exit strategy." I now have a plan, am working that plan, and have a strategy for the next phase of my life. Thank you Ambit!
Five wonderful kids at home with their stay-at-home mom deserve so much more than I could give them on an ordinary job's paycheck! I want to give them each the best education, the best childhood and a stay-at-home dad, too! Only Ambit will enable me to do that!
A full-time nurse, full-time single parent. No holidays/no sick days/no every other weekends/no time. Success is mine!
To help out where I could with my overworked and tired hubby. It's a no-brainer to help people save some money on their already strained checkbook with something they use all the time!
Mark and I will be able to retire in 3-5 years and will be able to help our children. We also plan to help out several charities that have rescued us over the years. These include: Hospice, Juvenile Diabetes Research and my current non profit job at Cornell Cooperative Extension. I want to have the time to take care of the people I love and Ambit is the avenue to do that.
Blessed Mom of four supported by my husband of 14 years. Thank God for this opportunity! My "Why" is: 1. Help with Debt! 2. Work from home to be with family 3. Help husband to be able to work less. 4. Help him go back to get his masters degree!
After 18 years at the same dead end job my husband and I decided to be in control of our futures! Ambit is still part time for us, but hopefully it will be our only biz soon. I want to be able to walk my 6-year old to school and pick him up every day.
First off, an opportunity to change the life of my family. To Live. We've been through so much that it's time to "Grow and Show." Naysayers make us stronger, the scars of life tell our story. Most of all, to teach our children you can do anything if you're willing to do your part. Our "Why" is to "Live."
It all started when I lost my Mom and my CEO to lung cancer! I wanted more time with my favorite peeps.
Our Ambit "Why" is we have a daughter graduating college next year with over $120,000 in college loans and need the extra help and prayers that we can get to help pay for her education.
My #AmbitWhy is creating a legacy of opportunity for my three children and my wife. Having worked for someone else for my entire adult life , I needed a change of direction and Ambit Energy provided just that. Being financially free from a 9-5 job means I can pursue a career in music without having to worry about the money for recording a project. Planning a family-friendly Rock music festival in Central NY/PA is also a priority as well. Many in the music industry stop pursuing their dreams because of the lack of funds from being a musician. Ambit provides this and so much more.
I want to leave a legacy like any ambitious man with a family. In addition, it takes guts to have a vision and stand by your decision. Why? Because I have faith the size of a mustard seed. That's all you need.
This company has honestly given me hope and a reason to push forward for my family and myself, after felling lost and hopeless. My "Why" started out as a way to earn some money to help my 21-year old and soon to be 20-year old daughters with living expenses and also help my mother with medical bills for her health problems. I am also on disability and I'm really running out of choices to get by day to day! My "Why" has since added that I want to help others reach their "Why!" I have a great team that has picked me up every time I have felt down, and I am truly thankful for each and every one of them. By team I don't mean people that are direct business partners but also the wonderful Ambit family I have met at presentations, at training, on Facebook, phone calls, text messages and so on and on!
I joined Ambit so I could have financial freedom, pay bills as soon as they come in, travel to see my children as they grow up and move out of the house - and just not have to worry anymore and live paycheck to paycheck. I'm kind of at a standstill right now in my business and need some advice on how to get customers and move ahead. I know this can work for me and my family
My "Why" is that I'm tired and I want to do this for my family so we are not constantly struggling and for others in the same position. I am blessed to have become a part of Ambit and I see a great future ahead for all of us! I live in VA so when Ambit finally becomes an option here I will sing my praises so loud you will hear them in TX!
Having my own family has been the biggest dream of my life! Being a teacher, I have come to understand even more about the value of being home to give your children their first education. While I don't have kids yet, I hope to replace my teacher's salary so that I can be present with my family in the future and not waste that precious time!
My "Why" is I do not want my wife or I to have to work into our 60's. I want to be financially free before that time.
As of today, Ambit Energy has allow me to go part-time in my full time job. Now I will be home with my kids and work my Ambit Biz from home. We continue to work really hard to become an Executive Consultant by AMBITION.
My "Why" is very simple but extremely important to me: my children. I want the flexibility to be there and spend more time with my children. Recently, my toddler was sick for almost two weeks with a bad virus. Had I been still employed, I probably would have been in trouble for staying home with him. Another example, my daughter had a field trip and I didn't have a boss telling me I couldn't go as a chaperone. Ambit gives me a flexible schedule to earn an income for my family and help other families save money. I am new in the business and look forward to the residual income, which will give me the additional option of affording trips to family that are a distance away. Thank you Ambit!
I joined Ambit part time to save money and to start a vacation fund, but I am beginning to realize this business is going to be much bigger than I ever imagined. My husband and I already own and manage our own company so we just fit our Ambit business in with the other.
Our "Why" surrounds our children and their futures. Our 7-year old was recently diagnosed with dyslexia so now, aside from college funds, we have the added expense of specialized tutoring and travel. I also hope that our Ambit business could one day allow me to play a big role in advocating for dyslexics.
My "Why" is for financial freedom, and college and wedding expenses for our lovely girls that are only four and seven.
My "Why" started out to be a stay at home mom. While that is my ultimate goal, it has done so much more on the way to reach that goal! It has now morphed into a long term goal of providing for my daughters colleges and their retirement as well as proving to give to needy families and EB research! EB is the worst disease you've never heard of and I feel it's almost a calling of mine to bring awareness and support both locally and globally!
I wanted my daughter to attend the same school two years in a row for the first time (she is in 3rd grade). My husband's business has moved us 13 times in 11 years. By not depending on my husband's business to provide our income, we would have the choice to live where we want and grow roots for the first time.
My "Why" is a long story, during the time working for TDC my husband had his back fractured in five places. Five years and five surgeries later, I was told he would never walk again. But thanks to a wonderful doctor, he is not only walking but working. Only God knows how long this is going to last. This is our #1 "Why," after raising six kids we want to sell our home and buy a 5th wheel and travel around and do Ambit. We have 22 grandchildren and that would give us the means to visit all them and still do Ambit.
I am a young guy and I saw this business as an opportunity to help me pay for my college and med school. I don't ever want to worry in my life about whether I am going to be able to pay the bills or not, and I don't want to go into debt one day. I just started with my business and I am around the age when you can first begin this business. I am having success, so if I can do it as a young guy then I know EVERYONE can do this business no matter how young or old! I also want to support my church more as well as their ministries that they have. God has given us all an amazing opportunity to help people we know, love and trust and help them to do the same thing. Thank you Lord for Ambit Energy!
I started out just needing some relief financially. I couldn't imagine "Financial Freedom," but I just needed some relief. After two years with Ambit I was actually able to retire two years early and I'm now working on helping my wife retire too. The "Why" changed as the realization of the potential Ambit offers became more and more apparent and achievable. It not only provided financial gains but, perhaps even more importantly, it has given us time. Freedom to come and go when and where we want as long as we want is priceless. Being able to afford it is the cream with the cherry on top.
