I have learned a lot in the course of my growth and I want to share the following: Great results require great responsibilities.Don’t accept excuses from anyone. It is important to work as a team. Help from the heart. When you are genuine, everyone runs for your final goal. Be grateful. Celebrate every personal achievement of your team. So far this year 2020, has been and will be historic. My daughter has improved a lot, I started conquering new markets, I have a business in 140 countries and growing more than 82,000 registrations. Thousands of people are benefiting from our Club, many already financially free and others growing professionally. Today, Santiago Santiago makes history in the Network Marketing Industry, winning the hearts of the whole world for his charisma, loyalty, commitment and above all, for leading by example.

This experience taught me that there are no excuses for someone who wants to achieve something and achieves it despite their situations. In June 2019, after being in and out of the hospital due to my daughter’s health condition, I managed to reach the Board of Director Rank. The highest position in the company. Right now, I become one of that 1% in the world to achieve 7 figures.
At this stage I had learned that teamwork is the most important thing. The business is not you, it is how many people you can help along the way. I kept working and helping people on a personal and online level. All with love, respect and courage. At this time, multiple events and conventions began to be held in all countries. In the month of January 2019, I reached the position of Executive Director. A position of respect and that only less than 5% of people reach within the industry. A difficult start to the year, since that same month my daughter was hospitalized for a health condition, “thrombocytopenia”. Being next to my daughter all the time, I continued working from the hospital thanks to the platform and it is from the emergency room that I close this range.
From this trip I learned that you do not have to personally meet someone in another country, that will come from your team. In addition, I also learned that you must be ready for when that happens, have the courage, the resources, and most of all, the leadership to continue impacting lives. In September 2018, I qualify for an incredible Leadership position, International Director. This is the position where everything gets better, but the commitment goes up with my team.
I learned that there are no excuses, you just have to provoke it and work at heart relationships. We managed to impact 95 people, we traveled to Japan and in the same way we did it without any language, or company documentation, only speaking from the heart. That same month I close the rank of Regional Director. It is my 12th month. A year of hard work, perseverance and working this business part time, only from 8:00 at night to 12:00 midnight. In August 2018, it was my fourth (4) cruise and this time through Asia. Where we had the opportunity to make a convention in Korea and Japan. It was an incredible 14 days with the team of leaders of InCruises and the Corporate, whose events were provoked in one week.
In 2018, after 9 months and a hurricane that stopped us for 4 months, he reached the rank of Senior Marketing Director. Back then, I contacted a friend from Korea and offered him the opportunity without knowing the Korean language. I spent more than 4 months trying to explain the opportunity using the Google translator. In February 2018, it is my third cruise. This time 43 people are leaving. Thanks to our purchasing power and our business model, I not only traveled in Adventure of the Seas, but I booked and stayed in the best room on the Ship, the Royal Suite. That week I was able to give my wife an unforgettable Valentine’s Day lifestyle. In May 2018, I traveled to Korea for 20 days to visit my friend and help him build the business with Antonio Martínez. The best decision I have ever made. It was difficult, yes, but not impossible.
Although these were not easy times, I learned that after the storm calm comes. At that time my business of communication towers grew, I installed over 40 radio stations on the island, but nothing from my InCruises company, since we had no system, everything was endured. The incredible and shocking thing is that the company helped the partners who were at that time in the situation that the island of Puerto Rico was going through. That’s when I realized that this company had a heart. The incredible thing is that when the internet came to the island, in November 2017, something amazing happened. I realized that all the other physical products companies on the island, within the network marketing industry, had lost everything. Many of these companies closed their warehouses and the leaders lost their ranks and qualifications. Instead, our company grew because it did not depend on a physical product. That month we had our second cruise with 27 people, who enjoyed an incredible cruise for 7 days. Many of those people were still recovering from the losses caused by the hurricane and were enjoying our product, with all the comforts, thanks to our Membership Club.
During that time, one of the things I learned from Antonio Martínez was respect, keeping the word, speaking the truth, and that you must have a total focus to achieve your goals and dreams. In June 2017, I reached my first level of Rank in the company and I earned a trip to the Greek islands leaving Venice. In August 2017, we traveled for our first Julio Ayala cruise, this server and my wife, Madelyn Cruz. The most incredible thing about that cruise was that I met other Leaders who were already in the Club and even more, I met our CEO, Michael Hutch and Frank Codina. I was able to sit down with them, talk and listen personally to what was the vision and mission of the company, where we returned from that trip to give 100% of us. Once we returned, in September 2017, not everything was easy. In Puerto Rico, they were preparing for the arrival of a hurricane. Hurricane Irma passed and ravaged and two weeks later, Hurricane Maria passed. It was a devastating hurricane, leaving the entire island in the dark, without water, without internet, without gasoline, without a telephone, without roads, many without food and without money.
