Mike & Sonja, both former employees of IBM, left the corporate life and have embraced the benefits of business ownership and residual income since joining WIN in 1995. “When I started WIN I was excited about the opportunity to be paid for what I am worth. With WIN I saw the opportunity to make a fortune in a growing industry,” shares Sonja. “I didn’t want to be an employee for a company that could shovel me around as they wished, but I didn’t like the idea of investing a lot of time and money into my own company. WIN was the ideal answer because I had no headaches of having my own company and I was still independent,” recalls Mike.
As some of WIN’s Top Earners worldwide, Mike and Sonja have enjoyed tremendous success building their business. “Overall we can do what we want, when we want to. Of course there will always be bigger goals, but simple things like driving the car you want to drive, buying the clothes you want to buy, spending holidays where and whenever you want to do it, makes life how it’s supposed to be.”
Mike and Sonja are so grateful they decided to start their WIN business, especially considering the unfortunate events that befell them in recent years. Mike suffered from severe health problems, landing him in and out of the hospital. “I landed in a wheelchair and I couldn’t do much. I needed Sonja’s help all day. That’s when we saw how strong our WIN business really is because she could afford to stay at home and nurse me at home and not bring me to a nursing home. She stayed beside me and we didn’t have to worry about paying the bills,” Mike reveals.
“I realized when Mike got ill how important this business can be for you — why residual income is very important. My future is more secure, even if I cannot work,” shares Sonja of her decision to care for Mike when he was sick. Sonja was able to care for Mike during this difficult time because of the residual income they had built in their business. “It’s nice to have a choice. It made me realize what residual income can do for you.” Mike and Sonja are experiencing the many benefits of their business as they enjoy the ability to live anywhere they choose — building their business anytime, anywhere with anybody.
