It Started with a Cup of Coffee
Victor Fontaine, Executive Consultant
When Victor Fontaine sat down at a Houston shopping mall for a cup of coffee with NC Rigoberto Yepez, his life changed instantly. “I understood at that moment ‘If I don’t do this, somebody else will, and I’ll be wasting time.’ It was the best program I ever heard.”
Right away, Victor saw that Ambit was a way to get the one thing his life was missing: time. “I was in the real estate field, buying, selling and remodeling houses, and working as a financial advisor,” he says. “I worked 12 hours a day—there was no time to share with my children. I hoped Ambit might bring in some extra money I could use to get back time with my family.”
Victor quickly found that he not only got back additional time to spend with his family, he found his financial freedom. Within two-and-a-half years of joining the company, he was out of the real estate business and completely focused on Ambit.
An Agenda for Success
One way Victor has built his business is by sticking to a plan. “I work every week with an agenda with every leader in my team. We plan business presentations, trainings and one-on-ones.” This organized approach helps build support for new Consultants and trains them to take on leadership roles. Yet for all his rigorous planning, Victor is quick to credit others for their role in his success. “I’ve learned from every person I know in this business,” he says. “I urge everyone in this business to build a team, because you can’t succeed working by yourself.”
He also advises others to be patient and success will come. “Keep working within the Ambit system. Never sacrifice integrity for growth. Never, never, never give up!” he says.
A Plan for the Future
Although he’s reached the level of Executive Consultant and only has to work his Ambit business a few hours a day, Victor has no plans to let up. “Enough is never enough,” he says. “I’ll be working hard to help others get their financial freedom. I want to work into new markets and develop new leaders.”
He recommends new Consultants follow a few simple steps. “Do your written list, get a mentor and get started.”
