Platinum International Diamond Dream Stories: Jeff and Michelle Altgilbers

Jeff and Michelle Altgilbers

Jeff and Michelle are two of the most passionate 4Life distributors. They have worked hard to build a global business. Their enthusiasm is contagious and they are the kind of people who make friends with people they meet all over the world. We encourage everyone to get to know them. They are both very talented musically and have a beautiful family. It is a pleasure to spotlight them!

I initially started developing my 4Life business over 12 years ago after my previous career as a small-business owner fell apart. As I began looking at other options, I considered a network marketing business. I knew people who had made some serious money with it. I decided it was the only way I was ever going to get back on my feet financially.

I had heard about 4Life from some former colleagues, and also spoke with my friend, Platinum International Diamond Dave Daughtrey. After hearing good things about the products and learning more about Founders David and Bianca Lisonbee, I decided 4Life was the right company for me.

Since I couldn't afford a phone, my sponsor was gracious enough to give me a cell phone. I couldn't get any reception in my house, so I would drive up to a farmer's field to make phone calls, spreading my notes out on the hood. I was three months behind on my car payment and even had the electricity in my house turned off. My business grew as I spent time traveling to countries such as South Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, and India.

When it comes to being a leader, it's not about you; it's about your team. Having good character is one of the most crucial aspects of being a leader. You need to be someone who keeps your word, follows through, and is dependable. I strive to remain committed to my team's success and let my distributors know I care about their businesses.

4Life has given me the chance to focus on family. In the beginning, I was taking care of the immediate needs. But as a result of my travels, I met Michelle and that really changed my life. We now enjoy life together in Tennessee with our children Micah, Alexander, and Arthur. I also have a grown daughter, Julia, who lives in Georgia. The most important thing I enjoy now is our family life with our children.

If you maintain your passion, amazing things can happen. I am grateful for the 4Life opportunity and for the many wonderful things I have experienced while sharing the 4Life philosophy of Together, Building People.

4Life Is the Perfect Formula

Here is another great dream story. We love reading these, so keep sending them to us!

Three years ago, I came to the United States from Seville, Spain. When I lived in Spain, I worked at important corporate positions, but never felt fulfilled. After arriving in the USA, I got jobs working in a library and a restaurant in Miami. I worked 17 hours a day, rented a room, and barely got by. I didn't speak English and my educational qualifications, training, and work experience didn't transfer over from Spain.

Two and a half years ago, I was introduced to the 4Life opportunity by International Diamond Melanio Valdes. At the time I was skeptical, but I had enough faith to sign up as a Leader4Life. At that moment, my dreams and goals became real. I really believe that 4Life is a phenomenon. It is tearing down walls and boundaries. With 4Life, there are no different nationalities, only one family that provides service and love. There are no different paths, only one path—success. 4Life is the perfect formula for combining diversity and plurality into unity.

I am grateful to the International Networkers Team. I have attended two Great Escape+ trips and I was a contest winner for the illuminate '09 convention. And earlier this year, thanks to the collaboration of my entire team, I achieved the International Diamond level. I want to thank all those who have helped my growth and progress. My success is the result of many people who add everyday value to my life. I strive to always live our motto, Together, Building People.

Finding a Home with 4Life

Most of you know that we are serving a mission for our church in Milan, Italy. A big part of our assignment has been to start a center where young single adults can come to socialize and find inspiration. It has been a wonderful experience for us and we have met some great young people. Recently, a young man came to our center. He is studying with an extension program for his university in Miami, Florida. He doesn't speak Italian and felt pretty homesick at first. He became fast friends with the young people at the center, including Italians, Peruvians, Americans, Hungarians, Brazilians, and more. He said that he really felt at home.

It was a good reminder that all of us need to feel like we belong to a family. We all need a support group. It also reminded us that this kind of friendship can extend beyond cultures and language barriers. As 4Life leaders, you bring people and cultures together. You help provide a safe and secure environment in uncertain times through the 4Life opportunity. You help "homesick" people find a home with 4Life. At 4Life, we are committed not only to providing the best products on the planet, but by Together, Building People, we can give everyone in the 4Life family a place of support and friendship. With 4Life, you can always feel at home!

Our Worldwide 4Life Family

One of our favorite aspects of 4Life conventions is recognizing achievements. We would love nothing more than to applaud you for everything you do each day to build your 4Life business and share this company's message with people everywhere.

The theme for this year's Recognition Gala is One World One Family. We think this perfectly fits the way we feel about 4Life distributors. Over the past 12 years, our 4Life family has grown from just a handful of people in our Utah living room to hundreds of thousands of distributors throughout the world. We love the way you have embraced the 4Life philosophy of Together, Building People through science, success, and service.

Even more than that, we think it's wonderful that so many distributors have gone one step further, creating a family atmosphere within their 4Life organizations. We truly do think of the people who make up the worldwide 4Life distributor force as a family. Even though our numbers grow with each passing month and year, we continue to be bound by the science of 4Life products, the success achieved by 4Life distributors, and the service each of you provides on a daily basis for others.

We can't wait to join with you at BIG Convention 2010 for the Recognition Gala. Through music, culture, dance, and above all, recognition for achievements, we will cherish our differences and celebrate what we have in common. We truly are a family. One World. One Family.
