Peter & Helen McKenna
Occupation: Air Traffic Controller / Educator
Peter McKenna was an air traffic controller who wanted out from his industry, yet he didn't know how he would do this until friends of his went to America and instead of bringing back a postcard they bought news about a new business. Peter had not had much experience with business yet the simplicity of the marketing plan clinched it for him. Meanwhile Helen was busy with other things as she was seven months pregnant with their first child and had more than enough to focus on. After Lucas was born the McKenna's worked together to build an organisation. Progress was slow at first, until a visit to Australia by Bert Gulick who bought the system with them helped the whole Australian organisation move ahead. In 1982 the McKenna's reached Direct. In 1990 Peter and Helen reached Diamond. This bought freedom from the daily grind and full time parenthood. "We focused on the need to duplicate the system and then we focused on our dreams," Peter said. If the attitude of a group is determined by the attitude of the leaders, the McKenna's' associates have high levels of excitement and achievement to look forward to.
