It’s hard to know how to turn your dreams into reality. But for Jose Ardon, he is not only living his dream, but he’s living the American Dream. He left a life of poverty to come to the US to learn what it would take to make him rich.
At an early age, Jose questioned the fundamental differences between the rich and the poor. He realized that knowledge was the only thing that stood in his way. So at age 17, he came to America with $100 in his pocket. He worked odd jobs in every industry, from the restaurant business to construction, but always remained focused on his objective. Finally, Jose was given the opportunity to attend an event that would change his life forever.
He attended a large motivational speaking event with over 4,000 aspiring entrepreneurs. As the presenters shared their stories, Jose was moved by one individual, sharing how his life was changed through direct selling. He was a millionaire, his own boss, and had gained financial freedom through residual income. “That same time, I told myself I will become a millionaire, or I will die trying, but I will never give up,” says Jose Ardon.
That personal commitment turned into a goal to earn $120,000 in the next year. When he crushed that goal before the year was over, he set a new goal of $10 million. Jose deposited his first million at age 27 and completed his $10 million goal before his 30th birthday. But even among massive success, he remains grateful for his roots. “Rather than forgetting where I came from, I have gifted my parents a house and a car and plan to continue helping others with the success I have earned,” says Jose Ardon.
Jose is committed to changing the world. He wants to give back to his community since he has been so blessed. So, he is returning to his homeland to repackage the American Dream as the “Latin Dream” to share these principles.
