Looking for the Right Chemistry
Gabriela Aldrete , Executive Consultant
Gabriela Aldrete first came to the USA to perform with the musical group Up With People, but after a year of touring the country and the rest of the world, she realized a career on the stage was not for her. She headed to college to study chemical engineering, and then to work overseeing processing and production for a major paper company. Later, she took a job as a process engineer with another paper company, but had to give it up when her husband’s job brought her and her family to Texas. While Gabriela enjoyed raising her four children, she wanted a professional challenge.
“I heard a friend talk about Ambit. My ears went up and my eyes opened wide—a business where I could make money, without having to leave my children. Ambit would allow me to be part of the corporate world without having to punch the clock.”
Gabriela was still cautious, though. She researched company online and even attended a presentation. Finally, Executive Consultant Wilson Montoya met with her in her home. “Wilson explained to me in super-detail how the business works.” Once she understood how Ambit’s residual pay system functions, Gabriela was ready to fill out the paperwork and get started.
Engineering A Success Story
Not everyone was as excited as Gabriela about her new opportunity. Her husband suggested she go back to work as an engineer. And she had a hard time lining up any new customers. But she stayed on course. “I wanted to know everything about Ambit. I called Consultant Support 100 times a day. I must have been annoying, but I had to know everything. Thanks to the patience of everyone in Consultant Support I was able to succeed.”
Over time, Gabriela’s persistence and learning started to pay off. This year, she was among the first Five Finalists to participate in the Ambit 5 Star Trip and made the A-list for Ambition 2012. And she has the enthusiastic support of her husband and family.
Now that she’s become an Executive Consultant, Gabriela’s goal is to help others achieve their goals. “I want to help as many people as I can in my organization become Executive Consultants. This will automatically take me into the National Consultant position.”
The Formula For The Future
Gabriela does more than just talk about helping her fellow Consultants, she takes action. “I set up a schedule of work for Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays to help my Consultants. I work with them one-on-one, and collaborate as a team to take them to the next level.”
For those who aren’t in a position to benefit from an individual session with Gabriela, she offers the following advice: “Patience, persistence and commitment. People want to get rich overnight, but it doesn’t work like that. If you only work sometimes, you only get results sometimes. A beautiful rose does not grow overnight.”
Gabriela hopes to open an office and hire an assistant to help grow her business. With her ability to engineer a great success story so far, it’s certain that Gabriela will continue to inspire and lead other Consultants in achieving their dreams.
My Why: “the dream of retiring young, so I can enjoy my children and my husband and travel the world before I cannot hear, walk or have a million pains.”
