During the Super Charge Summit in Singapore last March 4-6, 2016, I met Jose from Nicaragua, one of the Success Team coaches in MOBE (My Online Business Education). He approached me during one of the training breaks. He said he noticed I was wearing an IronMan finisher shirt, and that sparked a common interest between us. I learned that he too had been doing triathlons for some time, from 1998 to 2008 to be exact. He had raced at Saint Anthony, Tampa, Florida (Olympic Distance), Chicago (OD), Tampa Max Bein (70.3 IronMan), Clairmont, Orlando (70.3), and Panama City, Florida (IronMan Full Distance). What was even more inspiring is that he did these races, in order to raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Foundation. He stopped racing due to a back injury and since then, he had been focusing on raising his family and growing various businesses.
Jose is an accomplished businessman in real estate in Nicaragua and Florida. He deals with the import and export of coconut oil. He and his wife also run an ice manufacturing business, and more recently, Jose has become a Diamond Affiliate Partner of MOBE. Jose shared that he did not finish University education, but that he had accomplished a lot and earned more money than others who have gone through University because of his persistence, passion, resourcefulness, and clarity of purpose. These are qualities that according to Jose, are not only important to be successful in sports, but also in Internet Marketing, and life in general.
