They love being full-time stay-at-home parents to their young children and support affiliates in about 30 countries, while working their Anywhere Business. They help people discover more of what’s possible in life and business with their training, coaching and leadership development and love that they can do it on their own terms. In their first 30 days in Vida Divina, Al and Luz-Angela have grown a downline over 30,000 affiliates in over 15 countries.
Luz-Angela is from the South American country of Colombia. She speaks Spanish and English, is educated as a psychologist and a former traditional business owner. On top of that, Luz-Angela is also a full-time, stay-at-home-mom to the Rodriguez twins and has been home-schooling them since day one.
Luz-Angela is glad to be partnered with a company that allows her to easily enjoy her flexible schedule, as well as the financial benefits of building an international team and to be able to create a Life by Design that includes options, choices, vacations and lots of time with family and friends.
Al is also bilingual, and a former mortgage banking company owner with several traditional businesses under his belt. He is a driven individual that has a tough, but respectful, straight-talk coaching style that seems to come from his days as a football player. He has trained hundreds of professionals in the mortgage and real estate business and thousands in Network marketing, at this moment he has been nominated as The Top Male Networker 2016 by Business For Home due to Al’s nature that thrives by helping others succeed.
“I took my love for coaching and training in real estate/mortgage and transferred that passion and skillet to network marketing where I can help thousands of people find and get more out of life and having bought my time back has been a major blessing as I spend more time with my wife and children through Network Marketing.”
Al didn’t go looking for Network Marketing. Instead, Network Marketing found him 18 years ago through one of his employees. After seven or eight invitations to come take a look, he attended a hotel meeting and registered that night as it made perfect sense to build a “network” of customer and affiliates using health and wellness products. His main motivation was not even money. It was the fact that he was the first one in the office and the last one to leave, heavy expenses with his various offices, money in the bank but no time for vacations, little personal time and the idea of leveraged and residual income was fascinating to him.
However, two things happened from this run. First, the income and the proof this business worked was all Al needed to continue. The next was a telephone call from a very successful person in the upline organization that called to congratulate Al and soon enough, that person became the mentor he needed to expand his business even more successfully over the next few years.
Prior to Vida Divina, Al and Luz-Angela had gone on to build large teams using social media and team training systems. Yet their lifestyle is all about the TIME FREEDOM side of things and not to be in the spotlight. In the past few years, Al has consulted Network Marketing start-ups and decided to live a family adventure, or what they called a Work-Cation, on the beautiful beaches of the Mayan Riviera near Playa del Carmen, Mexico when Al and Armand Puyolt, the CEO of Vida Divina, continued to develop their friendship and mutual respect for each other.
Armand recalls, “Not only have we become great friends, but I saw true work ethics in Al as he was growing his organization back then. I also saw a family that was willing to move where ever they needed to to accomplish the goals they had set.
Most People in the MLM arena will not up-root their families and have them move to foreign countries to get closer to the company. This to me was a strong sign that great things were to come from Al and Luz.”
As this relationship developed, ideas were exchanged, and Al and Luz-Angela decided to join in on the vision of Armand and Vida Divina early on, and to not only make it their best run but the Rodriguez family simply believe this is an answer to help more people than they ever thought possible and to create not only better health and wealth for people, but a culture of people that worked in integrity, had more fun and represented family values.
“Faith is what is required to progress and do great things in life and FAITH is exactly what we had when we said yes to Armand in the very beginning. Looking back there was no evidence of success–some might even say too much risk–but we had faith in God, faith in ourselves and faith that Armand would do what he said he would do, and he has.”
Working from the very beginning of a company has it pros and cons, and Al has seen people either never have faith or lose faith over what has been no more than one to two months of bumps and bruises as they relate to product shipment, the back office or customer service delays–what he calls the “birthing process” of a new company.
“Our team is large and growing, and yet we’ve seen people give up on themselves,” Al adds. “As much as we’re saddened by this, we know God has a plan for all of us and we simply focus on those with the true desire to succeed, to change as well as those with the mental toughness to be an entrepreneur. This is a leadership factory disguised as a business and our job is to create leaders that create leaders; it’s a labor of love”.
The company motto of “Lead With Love” resonates with Al and Luz-Angela as they are believers in the mission to help. This is why they are so committed to Vida Divina and committed to helping lots of people along the way. Of course Coach Al Rod says, “I Lead With Love but also a little added tough love to help people get past their excuses, stories and their sticking points in order to live the life they’ve have been dreaming about for years”.
Al, is a numbers guy due to his former profession and is fascinated that the Vida Divina compensation plan is so strong, and feels anyone that decides to apply themselves and does not quit can have a financial breakthrough.
Armand Puyolt comments, “You know, when I started to built this Ark, Vida Divina, we knew our mission was to help all people around the world who need hope for something great in their lives, who need that one opportunity to take their family’s life from Tragic to Magic, yet what I did not expect, so many top earning leaders like Al and Luz-Angela have decided to become part of Vida Divina, dropping their income and moving over to a dream on faith, it’s only confirmation that what we have built, is on the right path for something Spectacular!”
Al and Luz-Angela are now completely focused on helping others grow and succeed, to see them walk on stage for their recognition, to see people that never succeeded before to now be able to see that success they desire with Vida Divina. To attract other families like themselves to understand they may be just one decision away from a breakthrough that can provide the money and especially the time freedom they so richly deserve.
