Volume 5 tagonist, George Bailey, lives a good, honest life, but never can quite real- ize his dream of traveling the world. He believes his good faith is continually repaid with bad luck, and he hits rock bottom one Christmas Eve. Standing on a bridge and ready to end it all, he says, What if he hadn’t connected with Ray or Colli? What if “Without me, everybody would be better off.

You earned every dime of DRIVING THEIR OWN DREAM your commission checks and the way you choose to spend your money reflects your dreams. Like Dr. Sean Stephenson said at NEXT 2012 in Las Vegas, “Money only amplifies who you really are at your core.” And we think it’s pretty awesome that our Distributors’ dreams represent as much diversity as the Distributors themselves. For Sam & Esther Kowalko, Premier Selects from Campbell River, British Columbia, fancy cars were never on their dream board. They wanted a different kind of mobility. When their XANGO commission checks started bringing in more money each month than the income from their restaurant business, they quit the proverbial rat race and turned to working XANGO full time. “XANGO gave us the financial and geographical freedom to fulfill our dreams,” Sam says. “The nature of the XANGO business, the benefits of residual income and advances in technology allow us to work from anywhere and keep in touch with our team regularly. We keep our business going while spending time with friends and family, doing the things we love.” Case in point: Sam was in Disneyland with his family at the time of this interview. “Seeing the smiles on our grandchildren’s faces as they met Mickey Mouse for the first time… that was on our vision board,” says Sam. “One of our dreams had always been to spend a month out of the winter in a warm climate, and because of XANGO, we were able to buy a small place in Arizona. We now spend the whole winter there, play tons of tennis and we’ve made more friends in Arizona than any other place we’ve ever lived.” Sounds dreamy. Congrats, Sam & Esther!
