Our Life is Changed Forever
Peggy and Ernie Force, Executive Consultant
Peggy and Ernie Force know something about commitment. After all, this dynamic duo already has more than 50 years of marriage under their belt.
Professionally, their dedication was no different. Ernie enjoyed a rewarding teaching career for 35 years, while Peggy helped others as a medical assistant. Ernie also spent 46 years on the couple’s local church board.
Even though they both enjoyed long and fruitful careers, they weren’t able to sustain the lifestyle they desired in their golden years.
“The challenges came as we entered the fixed-income stage of our retirement,” Ernie explained. “We continued to want to travel, but at the end of the month we simply couldn’t with the money leftover in our checking account.”
Finding the Ambit Opportunity
Fortunately for Mr. and Mrs. Force, a former student of Ernie’s introduced them to an exciting opportunity.
“Our former pastor’s son Ron Long, whom Ernie taught in school, gave us a call,” Peggy said. “Ernie decided to look at the business plan. He immediately saw the potential and decided to go for it. The rest is history.”
Even though it took some convincing to get Peggy’s full support, the Force’s Ambit business quickly started booming.
“Peggy wasn’t on board at first, but when the money started to come in she got excited,” Ernie said. “We realize that we’re building a legacy for our kids and our grandkids.”
Given their backgrounds in careers that were based on helping others, it’s no surprise that Peggy and Ernie have thrived with Ambit.
“Our life is changed forever as we strive to help others realize their potential and move forward with their lives,” Peggy said.
Next Step: Oldest National Consultants
Despite their success, one of their goals is to never stop growing – both professionally and personally.
“Personal growth through reading and listening to others is just as important as being financially free,” Peggy said. “We want to give a lot away to our church and charity, and help others to achieve their dreams.”
They found out in the spring of 2014 that success with Ambit can result in added perks. Peggy and Ernie received an all-expenses paid vacation after earning their way into Ambit’s exclusive Five-Star Club.
“Our proudest accomplishment was to make the Five-Star trip to Punta Mita, Mexico,” Peggy gushed. “Being able to spend time with Chris [Chambless] and Jere [Thompson] and their wives was priceless.”
Always ready to provide inspiration, they have a simple message for Consultants that are just starting out.
“Get started and never quit,” Ernie urged. “Don’t let any amount of ‘No’ answers slow you down, and don’t let anyone ruin your chance to achieve Financial Freedom.”
Ambit has been a dream come true for the Force’s. It’s only a matter of time before they accomplish their next goal: becoming Ambit’s oldest National Consultants!
