From a Long Vacation to a Long-Term Opportunity
Robert Wujda , Executive Consultant
A little more than 20 years ago, Robert Wujda came from his native Poland to visit his father. And he never left. Instead, he met a nice girl, settled down, and started a career in the construction industry. Currently, he owns a restoration company that helps people recover and restore damaged properties. He’s also the proud father of twins.
Robert’s Ambit story begins when another of his businesses, a custom home company, failed in the tough economy. His friend Richard Tarnacki called him and told him to meet him at a hotel in the Chicago suburbs. “For some reason, I didn’t ask him why or what for, I just had a feeling this was something big,” Robert recalls.
“Before the presentation ended, my only question was what did I need to do, and when could I start?” Robert initially thought he could increase his monthly income by a few hundred dollars a month. But then he saw an even bigger opportunity. “My restoration company is profitable, but it has a huge problem. I have no time at all for my family. With Ambit, I can become financially free and get quality time with my loved ones.”
Building A Successful Business
Robert credits the support of his wife Agnes for supporting him as he built up his business, especially early on when many of his potential customers didn’t understand how deregulation affected them. He also had to learn how to be a more effective sales person. “It was hard for me because of my accent,” he says, “but I learned how to be a salesman. I learned I enjoy helping others in Ambit, but also in other aspects of my life. I’ve become a better father and husband.”
He’s also very committed to his team. “I go to home meetings they set up. We have hotel meetings and trainings on the North Side of Chicago, and I will start meetings closer to the South Side in the near future.”
The key is persistence. “The only people who will not succeed at Ambit are the people who quit. Whether it takes one year or 10 years, if you keep working Ambit you will be successful.”
Moving Ahead And Achieving New Goals
Robert sees a bright future for his business. He is traveling to California to expand his business, and hopes to become the number one money earner in Illinois for 2013. He also expects to be able to focus on working his Ambit full-time in the near future.
“I will become financially free, and I will help as many people as I can to achieve their goals, become financially free and spend quality time with their families.”
He also plans to continue attending AMBITION. “I wouldn’t be where I am if except for AMBITION. Anyone who does Ambit just has to go there.”
For Robert, Ambit has turned out to be the opportunity of a lifetime of financial freedom.
