At Home With Ambit
Don & Brenda Boyd, Executive Consultant
Don and Brenda Boyd were already successful before they discovered Ambit. Don had been a homebuilder for 20 years, and his wife had worked as a nail tech for the same length of time. But despite their accomplishments, they found it a challenge to save enough money for a comfortable retirement.
That’s when their friend Johnny Wiseman told them about a way they could not only save a significant amount on their energy bill, but also make some additional income. In the spring of 2011, the Boyds decided to sign on as Ambit Consultants.
“At first, it was the free energy that impressed us,” Don says. “But we quickly saw where we could help others save money on their bills and that other people could use extra money. By helping them, we could earn residual income for our retirement.”
Building Their Business
For the Boyds, Ambit success runs in the family. Their three children bought into the concept immediately, and one daughter is an RC while another daughter and their son are both MCs. The couple was also very quick to put the lessons they learned into practice.
“We are very proud to have started our own meetings early in our Ambit business,” Brenda says. “We have been very fortunate to train our leaders.” The couple was so successful they were asked to be on the cover of a Texas Ambit publication, which led to a higher profile and more success.
Both Don and Brenda say the hardest part of their journey was learning to speak in public. “My wife didn’t take part in meetings until she attended Ambitious Women,” Don says. “This conference changed her life! I could not do it without her.”
The Boyds are also quick to share credit for their success. “We have met and become friends with so many wonderful people. Ambit is a big family of people who care about you.”
A Plan For The Future
As they move forward, the Boyds plan to enter new markets. They are introducing Spanish-speaking meetings and trainings, as well as recruiting consultants outside of Texas.
“We plan to help anyone who needs help,” Don says. “You have to believe in your team and help them to believe in themselves.” The couple also plan to continue their training and learning in order to help their team grow.
“We believe in growing our business by helping others grow theirs,” Brenda says. “We love helping people, having fun and making money!”
