As a former ivy-leaguer and future Olympic hopeful from Princeton, Brian Sax seemed to have the recipe for success – a college education from one of the country's most respected institutions and the athletic ability to break new records in track and field. But it didn't take long for Brian to discover that college had not prepared him for the harsh realities of the real world – a world that unfortunately would not allow him to do what he loved and to be financially successful at the same time.
As an engineer, he never gave up on his dreams, but his career simply did not leave enough time for him to train properly. In his search for something new, something that broke the corporate rules, he discovered ACN through a friend and heart surgeon from Yale – and he was immediately impressed.
“Everyone was so supportive from the beginning; everyone wanted to see everyone else succeed. It was the most positive environment that I had ever encountered,” Brian said.
From his first days in this business, Brian set out on a different kind of race… a race to the top. He was promoted to RVP in July 2000, but that simply wasn't enough. So he relocated to Odessa, Texas, and under his leadership, the Texas market exploded. His move also resulted in Brian meeting his future wife Andrea.
The couple has been extremely successful, and their financial gain has given them the freedom to spend more time together and to look forward to starting a family without any financial worries. In addition, Brian is able to devote time once again to his love of track and field, and Andrea has been able to focus on her own longtime dream of starting her own business. While their income has afforded them a lot, they’ve gained far more from their ACN business.
“The growth along the way, as well as the type of people who have come into my life, my wife especially, have completely changed my life. If it were not for ACN, I would not have 90 percent of the non-material items, qualities, and assets I cherish most in my life right now! I’m excited about where I am, what I’ve become, and where my wife and I are headed – all because of ACN!” Brian said.
Today, this consistent President's Council member and top producer overrides more than 55,000 Independent Business Owners and has eight RVPs on his team. Brian reached another milestone in February 2003 when he was the first to be promoted as a North American Senior Vice President.
"ACN has been the definition of change in my life. What my career forced me to give up years ago, I now have that and more back through ACN," Brian said.
The Circle of Champions represent ACN's top producers. Success as an ACN Independent Business Owner is not guaranteed, but rather influenced by an individual's specific efforts. Individual results will vary.
