I am from Guyana, South America. When my family first came to America, 'the land of opportunities,' they both had the same vision: a better future for their children.

Our journey to Diamond began when I came back from our first function. I saw a dream; I saw successful people who were retired; and to our surprise, they were not 65. They had nice homes and cars and they lived very peaceful, happy, fulfilled, successful lives. This created a vision for us that we, too, could have that lifestyle for our family and our children ' if were willing to listen, learn, and duplicate what they had done. And so, I got very excited!

There was no BWW system in our local area, and the closest Open Meeting was almost two hours away. But, we had made a commitment to build this business, and each week we would drive two hours to attend the meeting. We learned a lot, including how to start our own meetings. Each week our team would come to our home for a PASE meeting. Sometimes only one couple would show up, but this made us stronger and more determined to make it work. Soon our business expanded and our home became too small for PASE meetings. More and more people caught on to the DREAM and started building the business with us. Of course, there were many challenges and struggles along the way, but when the DREAM is big enough, the facts don't count.

We went Diamond for several reasons. First, for my family my children, Ananta and Anila, who never complained when we had to leave them with babysitters to go show the plan and attend meetings and functions. The second reason to go Diamond was to honor our awesome uplines for their help and support throughout our journey: our sponsors Khamta and Nadia Persaud, and our mentors Sanjiv and Shauna Sahay, Kumar and Anjali, Manipal and Renuka, Praveen and Madhu, Kanti and Lata, and Bill and Peggy Britt. Finally, for our awesome TEAM that GOD has blessed us with, each and every one of them being so special to us, we needed to lead the way for them to follow. They all believed in us, and qualifying as Diamonds was certainly a way to honor them. We know that their time is coming soon, I am committed to helping each one of them go Diamond.

If I could give any advice to our fellow IBOs, it would be to work hard, stay focused, stay consistent and persistent, and don't let anyone steal your dream. We know that the best is yet to come, and the rewards are endless!
