Angie Somers and Peter Ross started their Amway business in August 1984. Their business achieved Silver Producer status in 1984, and Platinum status in 1985, at which stage their distributorship had sponsored 21 other distributorships, and their business organisation consisted of about 70 distributorships. They achieved Emerald in 1989 and Diamond in December 1990. She qualified EDC in 1993, Double Diamond in 1997, then Triple Diamond in 2010.
They separated in 1992 however they ran the business jointly for several years before both entered new relationships, at which point Angie bought out Peter's share. Angie now lives with her husband Carl and two daughters.
From sipping champagne on the Great Wall of China to soaking up the sun in Bora Bora, Angie credits her business for taking her all over the world many times. Angie has enjoyed over 50 all expenses paid trips to exotic destinations such as Hawaii, Paris, the Italian Riviera, the Greek Islands, and Aspen USA. It began more modestly, Angie was a young secretary when she started her business in 1984. Originally, her driving factor was simple; “No more 6.00 a.m. mornings!” Inspired by the speakers at a weekend conference, she saw the possibility of replacing her income, which she achieved in 4 short months. “It’s wonderful to be in control!” It was initially Jim & Nancy Dornan’s story on CD, which had a major influence on Angie and motivated her to take action. Nancy’s statement, “your past is not your future” and their inspiring story, changed Angie’s belief system forever. “My excitement grew as I realised financial independence could become a reality. In just a few short years I had created ongoing income and at the same time helped some of my friends achieve their goals – a win-win situation for all. The Network TwentyOne Seminars and CD’s, leadership books and inspiring role models all made an impact upon her. Coupled with this, her energy, enthusiasm and willingness to work enabled her to create the freedom and lifestyle she now enjoys. Today, Angie shares her life with her husband Carl and his gorgeous girls, Jessica and Emilee. The both love the freedom the business affords them, to create special experiences with their daughters, “family time is our utmost joy!” Their passion now is to continue to help others grow to become financially independent and to realise their dreams. They are proud of the people in their organisation here in Australia and globally, who have also developed into major leaders in their own right. Today their business operates in more than 30 countries – “it’s a gift to have so many valued relationships, memories and incredible experiences with amazing people”. Angie enjoys inspiring people with her story on the Network TwentyOne stage around the world and states, “it’s the journey that makes the person”. Success is built one step at a time. Each goal achieved builds confidence and the belief that you can do it too! Others have, why not you?
