Debbie and Norm Hoffman
Debbie left a successful 20-year career as a Wall Street investment banker, "because I wanted to make a real difference in peoples lives... and have quality time to spend with my family." When she was introduced to GIA Wellness, she knew that she had found her "calling." Norm is a former high-end custom home builder, plus marketing / advertising professional who has recently joined his wife in the business. Together, they are building one of the fastest growing teams in the company, and have been honored for their leadership role as 2010 Consultants of the Year. What drives them every day is helping people break through limiting beliefs to achieve their dreams and goals.
"Every penny we earn represents someone's life that's been touched by either our products or GIA's powerful business opportunity. And recently, our Northern California team reached a major milestone, when we qualified as ambassadors for GIA's Roots & Wings movement, to help teenagers make significant breakthroughs in their lives and soar to their full potential."
The GIA business gives Debbie & Norm the freedom to travel and visit their son, Adam, who is attending college in Providence, RI. And since they are developing a team back East, they can write-off their trips as a business expense.
"Our dream is to own a home on Nantucket Island and live an active life together... on our own schedule? doing what we love (without reporting to a boss)... and having fun doing it!"
Their vision is to build a huge international team. By so doing, they will replace Debbie's Wall Street income as well as the losses Norm incurred in the real estate debacle.
"GIA is our hope for the future, and we look forward to helping so many people achieve Growth, Inspiration & Abundance in their lives."
John & Chris Williams
One Star Presidential Directors
For John and Chris GIA is all about Freedom. John had experienced every type of "job" imaginable. As an employee for a very large company he felt limited by the structure and boundaries associated with having a "9-5" job. Later, he wanted to develop his entrepreneurial spirit and became a business owner, only to realize the freedom he was looking for couldn't be found with the feeling of the business owning him, rather than him owning the business. John discovered Network Marketing in 1995 and became unemployable almost instantly. Although success came early in his Network Marketing career, freedom was not realized until he joined the GIA Wellness Team.
"I feel like everything I had done in my life led me to GIA. The things I love the most I am now able to do every day. I love to help people and build teams. I love to show people how to create a vision for their future and help them realize those dreams. I also love the freedom to build my GIA business from anywhere. Every morning my wife Chris and I enjoy freedom by walking on the beach near our home Dana Point. The rest of the day I work with my GIA team to help them discover and achieve a Lifestyle of Inspired Wellness through GIA."
John has reached the One Star Presidential Director and achieved Consultant of the Year for two Consecutive years. His leadership is felt by almost every GIA Wellness Consultant every day as he leads the "Wake-Up" calls and works closely with the GIA Corporate Team.
