Birthing a New Business
Jace & Dalia Garza, Executive Consultant
EC Jace Garza learned the importance of hard work early in life. “My parents never let me slip up or give up,” instilling in him a strong work ethic, which he relies on today. “That attitude is how I was able to get a bachelor’s degree in Radiation Therapy, be No. 1 in my class and work at the No. 1 hospital for cancer, MD Anderson Cancer Center.” Those tools help him now in his Ambit business.
His wife, Dalia, had a different upbringing. “She was influenced by her father, a business owner, which led to her being an entrepreneur.” She showed her entrepreneurial side in different ways. “She sold pencils, candles, and anything she could get her hands on to make a profit while in school.” Dalia’s love for the arts led her to explore her passion for graphic design. She received her bachelor’s degree in fine arts. As a freelance graphic designer, she has used both the knowledge she gained from her degree and her graphic design skills to sell her designs, paintings and murals.
Then, Jace found out about Ambit from his best friend, Angel Carias. They took a few days to think about it, then decided to give the business a try. Their first impressions about Ambit proved to be right. “We knew that with my work ethic and my wife’s entrepreneurial spirit that it was at least worth a try.”
That try paid off as they began to see the benefits of the business. “What impressed us the most was the ability to have extra income and be able to bless others (not just in our Ambit business) but also in our mission to help others.” They saw time freedom and the ability to travel more as extra bonuses. This start was the foundation they needed, which was what they remembered when things got a little tough.
Paving the Way
Their path to EC hasn’t always been a smooth ride. With people saying no and time restrictions, they found it difficult to build their business at times. “I have a fulltime job, and my wife and I are actively involved at our church in several ministries.” With a newborn baby added into the mix, it was a lot to take on all at once. However, there was one thing that was key as they continued their trek to the top. “We took it little by little.”
Then, they found out they were expecting twins. “We worked extra hard then, and it was one of our “Whys” to make EC before they were born. They believe their story is an inspiration to new Consultants on how to build their Ambit business. “Don’t give up and remember that building a little at a time is the key.” That key unlocked opportunities for them, and they know it can do the same for others.
