Galan Theo Jr
Riding the wave of the future – Theo Galan, Jr. isn’t one to sit still. Diamond at 27, he’s eager to make his mark on the world.
“I’ve read a lot on economics and industry, and the Amway™ business model is the wave of the future,” says Theo, a second-generation IBO.Initially resistant to following in his father’s footsteps, Theo embraced the business when he compared his dad’s lifestyle to those of the big-time CEOs.“Before, I used to say, ‘Someday I’m going to be CEO of a big company.’” Now he wants to change people’s expectations about Amway while growing his team.
“In this hard economy, Amway’s helping people take control of their lives,” Theo states. From the income potential to the possibility of world travel – not to mention being their own boss – “it allows them to do what they want, when they want.”
Plus, “Amway’s been around for more than 50 years!” It has staying power, a broad base of excellent products, and visionary leadership that allows it to remain relevant, he says.
“I always knew I wanted big things out of life, but until Amway, I didn’t have a plan for how to get there,” he admits. “I’ve definitely learned how to balance my life and focus on my future” – a future as bright as the sunny climes he prefers.“It’s surprising how challenging yet fun and adventurous this business is,” says Theo, who enjoys “living large” around the world. “When people start to grasp what it’s all about and we begin working together as a team, that’s my favourite part.”
