1 Of The Most Incredible “Rags To Riches” Success Stories Of All Time

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 Years since Ana and I were homeless living our of our car.

blog12348So Without boring you by writing it all out and sharing all the gory details. Watch this short VIDEO where I share my story with a large group of friends and patriots. The Obom Bowen Nerium Story:

Well, Now that you’ve watched our story you understand why we’re so passionate about working with Nerium. We created what we called The Bullet Proof Success Formula which I’ll share with you below and you will clearly see how it’s helped us. My hope is that by you reading this, you take it as serious as we did and change your life.

This was a Philosophy we bought into and followed to the letter.

First we asked ourselves, do you (meaning us) have what it takes to get what you want?

You see, the winners in life know the rules of the game and have a plan. Whether you want to begin a new career, shed pounds or find the love of your life, consider these (10) characteristics which we’ve laid out here for you my FREE GIFT. These are common to people who succeed everyday and Ana and I would love to see you succeed also, many BLESSINGS.

1. Step one have a vision. (Without VISION people perish.)

The first thing you need to do, is know what you want, write it down and go after it.

Champions get what they want because they know what they want. They have a vision that keeps them motivated and efficiently on track. They see it, feel it, and experience it in their minds and hearts. What is success for you? You won’t get there without knowing what it feels and looks like.

2. Step Two Make a strategy. (Any goal without a planned strategy is certain to fail)

People who consistently win have a clear and thoughtful strategy. They know what they need to do and when they need to do it. They write it down so they stay on course and avoid any alternatives that does not get them closer to the finish line. To see our vision and how it drove us daily click here:

3. Step Three Find a PASSION.

What Are you excited to get up too in the morning? People with a passion are, and they’re energized about what they are doing. You need to live and breathe what it is that you want, and be passionately invested in both the journey and the goal. It’s what makes you get up 8 times after falling down 7.

4. Live the truth.

People who consistently win have no room in their lives for denial, fantasy or fiction. They are self-critical rather than self-deluding, and they hold themselves to high but realistic standards. They deal with the truth, since they recognize that nothing else will make their vision obtainable. They take full responsibility for their actions. We never have nor will we ever blame anyone for any of our circumstances. The moment you blame, thats the moment you give up Accountability.

5. Be flexible.

Life is not a success-only journey. Even the best-laid plans sometimes must be altered and changed. Be open to input and consider any potentially viable alternative. Be willing to be wrong and be willing to start over. God knows Ana and I started over and over until we finally got it right 5 years later.

6. Take risks.

People who consistently win are willing to get out of their comfort zone and try new things. Be willing to plunge into the unknown if necessary, and leave behind the safe, Un-Challenging, and familiar existence in order to have more. I had taken our last amount of money meant to pay for the car we were living in to pay for the Nerium Business Opportunity. (Would you have done that?)

7. Create a strong Nucleus.

Surround yourself with a group of people who want you to succeed. They will move with you toward your goal. Choose and bond with people who have skills, talents and abilities that you do not. Winners give and receive by being part of other people’s nuclear groups. We seriously took the advice of a good friend who made Millions in this industry and listen to every word he and his mentors said for 2 years and oddly enough our problems went away with hard work.

8. Take action.

Do it! People who succeed don’t just sit and think about what they want to do. They take meaningful, purposeful, directional action consistently and persistently. Every step they take puts them toward the outcome they’re looking for. Everything I’ve said previously if we never took action we would still be homeless.

9. Set priorities.

People who are consistent winners manage their challenges in hierarchical fashion. They commit to managing their time in such a way that does not allow them to keep grinding along on priority number two or three if priority number one needs their attention. We learned this skill using the David Byrd next level achievement SYSTEM.

10. Take care of yourself.

People who consistently win are consciously committed to self-management. They are the most important resource they have in achieving their goals. They actively manage their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. As i close this for you here let me share this last thought with you Everyone makes mistakes…even the most successful people out there. But, what achievers do better than others is recognize the patterns that are causing those mistakes and never repeat them again.

In short, they learn from pain—their own and the pain of others. A good thing to remember is this: pain is unavoidable, but repeating the same pain twice, when we could choose to learn and do something different, is certainly avoidable. I like to say, “we don’t need new ways to fail….the old ones are working just fine!” Our task, in business and in life, is to observe what they are, and never go back to doing them again. –

So now here is where we were while in the gutter of life.

Today: I’m telling it like it is:


October 31, 2009 when I departed the Gates of Camp Pendleton retiring as a Marine I was already homeless. After serving this great country. How that all happen was the compounded effect of many poor choices of my past, to which i take full responsibility for. I used to say i was not prepared for being homeless, but who is right?

What I want to share today, as I look back from my retirement day to now is this. In the almost 5 years I was homeless, struggling with Depression, Anxiety, Suicide, Chronic PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Chronic head aches, and worst of all Chronic Back Pain which was due to the injuries I sustained in Iraq, Nothing prepared me or hurt worst than when I finally found the vehicle that would change it all, how most of my friends and some family members reacted to my new chosen profession in Net-Work-Marketing.

Over the past 5 years, I’ve learned More and earned more than I have in my entire time in the Military. It was not easy in the beginning and its not easy now still; but no one promised me a rose garden either, only what I was willing to work for.

But I remember as a young Marine that was not easy either. I do understand however that my friends and family were not educated on this industry. Recently I realized that millions have looked at Net-Work-Marketing entirely the wrong way over the course of the last 100 plus years of its existence. I realize 95% of my friends and family saw it as a scam, Pyramid Scheme, one of those things where you get in and the guy/girl at the top makes all the money.

This is no more than a perversion of the truth, or A Big Fat Lie. More than any other Job or business model around the world Net-Work-Marketing has produced more Millionaires to date. What I learned is only a few saw this as a profession and through trial and error steadied the journey to millions.

When I found that out, that was exactly why I choose this business model as my profession. The crazy thing is this your NET-WORTH (income) will always equal that of your NETWORK (people you know) its the same in a job or any business. If you have not yet fully understand this theory, here is the fastest way to test it out.

Take your 5 to 10 friends or family members you are closest with or talk too the most add all their incomes up and divide it by the number in the group and that will be about the total average income you Make. This was a statistic that floored me. I had read an article that said ” you are the combined average of the books you read and the people you associate with” at the time I did not read books on wealth or associated my self with wealthy people, but now I do!

Remember when I said “Nothing prepared me or hurt worst than when I finally found the vehicle that would change it all, how most of my friends and some family members reacted to my new chosen profession in Net-Work-Marketing”?

I would say it was partly my fault, because to most of them I never really said that I was homeless and this is what i’m doing to make money now to eat, or pay my car note so I can keep living out my car, or able to afford to have a real shower, or sleep in a warm bed, or even have a home cooked meal. You want to know what stooped me?

What stopped me was my pride because I was too embarrassed to tell that to my friends and family and it hurt every time I asked them to take a look at a video or invite them out to a life changing event. I remained in my comfort zone until I began to stretch and expand my network of friends to new people I met everyday and shared with some of my friends I was struggling and they decided to help.


thepilsucc123Today i’m not homeless anymore, i’m accomplishing all my goals and dreams because of Net-Work-Marketing and making the decision to choose this as a profession over some get rich quick scheme, I got to fulfill one of my all time goals of becoming a published author and releasing my First book The Philosophy of Success which is quickly becoming a best seller. If you would like to pick up a copy get yours HERE:

Thanks to Nerium now I own my own home paid for, a Free car (2016 Lexus ES350 2nd One) from Nerium Intl and my bills are paid which makes me Debt Free and now focus on building wealth. looking at my life was like constantly living a bad dream and not able to wake up from it before. What I want more now thank anything else is to help all my friends especially the ones who said no in the beginning to Financial Freedom.

So if you were, or are one of my friends reading this and during the time of September 24th 2011 to now you said “NO” or are still thinking about it. “Don’t any-longer”, and here is why with all the love in my heart I mostly want to say this to you. Do not at all take this the wrong way, I have already achieved becoming Multi-Millionaire because of the Nerium Opportunity through my other COMPANIES . I’m going to continue to do this with or without you but I would love to do it with you and share in your journey while helping you grow and be wealthy also.

Here is what I do know with certainty 100% My children is worth the Sacrifice i’m making now for their future and your Family does too. I will not end up like most Americans today at age 65 Dead or Dead-broke, depending on close friends and relatives to help me out. Its a staggering fact for today’s economy if you don’t believe me take inventory of everyone you know 60 to 65 and see where their life is heading.

Their is absolutely nothing wrong with a Job, it is however a great place to start but when you finish its not where you want to be in today’s economy. Why that is? Because even if you are earning $200K a year and retire; that amount will be cut from $200k to what ever percentage you will receive for life, but as you get older and you cant mow the lawn, clean that big house, medical bills grow and health fails, kids move out or you have to pay for college, that income shrinks every single day as inflation goes up the same rate state and federal taxes increase and the US dollar looses its value because its no longer backed by goal. What will you do in 20 years when you’re 65 and realize this was the opportunity of a life time.

123dasdsaNet-Work-Marketing is the most attractive Business model simply because of one thing and One thing only. RESIDUAL INCOME. No Job security right now will ever give you that 20 years from now. What is residual income? that’s the income you make now and always on the work or business of the past. and the beauty of this model is the longer you work the more income you earn every single month.

I don’t know about most of you but when I found that out I said I was never working a JOB again regardless of the set income I can ever be paid. So if this is a a scam, Pyramid Scheme, one of those things where you get in and the guy/girl at the top makes all the money sign me up again. I truly hope this does not come off as me being cocky at all because its not my character nor my approach but; In my limited time having a few jobs and serving in the United States military which I believe still to this day is the greatest honor serving my country, no one will ever dictate again to me how much I am limited to earning.

To me that’s the biggest Scam, or Pyramid around. If you read this far i’d like to get to know you and work with you the best way to do that is click this link  fill out the information tab and watch the video that changed it all for me 5 years ago.

*****Special note to my Friends***** : Honestly the reason to do This now besides the obvious that the company I’m Currently working with (Nerium Intl) has now set and broken every record in this 150 year old industry. By simply growing 3900% and grossing $100 million in sales its first full year in business and to date we have over 3+ Million Customers.

I’m sure you would agree that you want to live to at least age 65 Right? im also sure you might not want to be working at age 65 am I right? and if you are age 65 right now, you would rather be relaxing stress free some where tropical right now or just enjoying your time with kids, grand kids, or family am I right?

whatever Job you leave, retire from or income you receive from Social Security cannot replace an investment. its the same reason we Save, or invest in IRA’s 401k’s etc. Building a solid Net-Work-Marketing business is the only solid investment that will grow your income every day, every week and every year, with out fail.

I promise you 100% regardless of what anyone ever tells you. They are either scared or don’t know what it is they are talking about. If you truly would like to just learn more, honestly just call me 760-696-0914 or just inbox me today, don’t wait I want the best for all my friends.

The Marine Corps thought me everything I needed to know, how to live, how to survive, how to sustain and even how to thrive. I enlisted at age 17 what did I know about life? as I look back today and realize how many of my friends as I talk to them now that ended up homeless like I did, it still saddens me.

Many like me enlisted at an early age and never really got the chance to be independent first. However we all still learned the valuable skills necessary to make it when push comes to shove and that’s the bond all military members share how to survive and how to Thrive.

Where ever you are in life I want the very best of success for you. May God go with you and your path to your dreams. God bless you and thank you for taking the time to read this. its my goal that if you made it this far that my story impacted you in a way that you are able to change now and not go through what I did and that you can come out on top.

I also wrote this to tell anyone that maybe as broke as I was, that I used the money instead of paying for my car to start my business, my back was against the wall but I needed a serious change. The truth is if you are willing to make a change with the right mentor-ship you too can have any level of success you want. If you would like to gain massive success its available for you and I can and will help you with that. all my best to you and your future success, see you on the journey.

Last question 3 Questions.

  1. Where were you in life 3 years ago?
  2. Have you improved since then?
  3. What’s the plan for your life the next 3 years?

I would like to invite you to come on board with me and change your life tremendously. But most importantly lets have fun doing it. Because of our massive Success as a company the worldwide expansion will happen without you, but let’s do it together.

God Bless You
