Words from AMSOIL’s President Alan Amatuzio
We’ve been hearing a lot about the unemployment rate in the U.S. of late. The most recent statistics at the time I’m writing this show it’s down to 3.9 percent nationwide. That’s phenomenal! Most people believe that at rates this low, anyone who wants to work has a job. Unemployment won’t remain this low forever though. Like most things, it’s cyclical and, unfortunately, it will rise and people will be looking for work. Much to their good fortune, we’ll be here waiting when that happens.
Many of those people will grab the AMSOIL opportunity with both hands and get to work. Others, however, will dismiss it as insufficient to replace the income they received from their previous employment. That’s understandable. I’ll never tell anyone that running a Dealership and making good money doing it is easy. If it were easy, everyone would do it. It takes time, patience and perseverance to build a successful Dealership. Over time, an AMSOIL Dealership delivers unlimited potential. It can truly change your life.
I like telling the story about AMSOIL Regency Gold Direct Jobbers Mike and Linda Ford in Minnesota. Mike first became a Dealer after learning about our products for his snowmobiles and motorcycle. He spent a lot of time researching the products and programs over his first year as a Dealer, and then he attended his first AMSOIL University in 2005. That experience really made an impression on him. In 2006, Mike was laid off from the company he had been with for 10 years. He decided then and there to pursue his AMSOIL business full-time rather than look for work with another construction company.
The Fords were nervous, but they decided, committed and put in the work. Now they work together. Linda said it’s hard work, but they enjoy it and it doesn’t feel like work. Would Mike have made the leap into AMSOIL full-time if he didn’t already have a little experience? Maybe not. Would their lives be the same if Mike hadn’t made that choice? Not a chance. Their journey is not unique.
An AMSOIL Dealership has the power to change the lives of you and your family. An AMSOIL Dealership might be the best insurance policy or retirement plan ever created. When disaster strikes, an AMSOIL Dealership is there to provide income. We have many widows today earning strong incomes that simply would not be there without an AMSOIL Dealership. We also have Dealers who thought their retirement was secure with a pension or investment only to learn that the money had been squandered away by bad decisions or vanished when the market crashed. With an AMSOIL business, you depend upon yourself and that is a whole lot more secure than depending on someone else.
I read an article recently about a 30-year-old person who racked up $200,000 in student loan debt and is unable to get ahead because his paycheck is consumed by the payments. I wonder what his life would look like today if he spent the last 10 years building an AMSOIL business instead. Imagine if someone had given him the opportunity to avoid accumulating all that debt. You could do that for the next generation in your family.
Everybody is presented with opportunities in life. There are those in this world who recognize them and act, and those who don’t. You’ve obviously recognized the opportunity; now you have to act. Find others and help them see the power of an AMSOIL business. Show them why it’s a good idea to start now and not wait until times are tough. There are lots of things in life that are out of your control, but this is something you can do to influence your own success.
