Just a few short years ago, the real estate meltdown and a very costly divorce left Kevin Marino working tirelessly to earn ends meet in hopes of one day gaining financial security. He had been completely broke and in search of a way to gain financial freedom when he discovered North American Power. What started as a “Side Project” began to grow, as did his income. In November of 2013, Kevin earned over $1,000,000 in combined earnings making him one of the very first Representatives to ever achieve this incredible milestone. Now that Kevin is earning a residual income every month, he has more free time and money to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants.
Since pursuing the Opportunity, Kevin has been able to take his life back, make a difference in the lives of others, and earn an income so impressive that it inspired Diana (his new Bride) to leave a corporate job she hated, and join him so they can succeed together. “The best thing is, we have the financial freedom to work the hours we want and make as much income as we choose, and we spend as much time as we want with friends, family, and each other.”
WallStreet is doing wonderfully well this day! Stock markets have climbed over 17,000 which is a first. Prices of goods and services are rising from month to month. Utilities and gasoline both are necessities are becoming more unaffordable every year. There are two Americas this day. There is a rich America and a poor America. Politicians and CEOs are increasing poverty across America. People need jobs, are searching for jobs, and cannot find jobs to supply daily needs anymore. Never before have I witnessed such an America. CEOs are locking out workers, keeping wages low, and providing little or no benefits. Politicians are labeling jobless generational lazy, mismanagers, too stupid to hold down a job. Jobless in America continue to grow. What should jobless do when they can't find a job?

When his son asked him to do a favor one day, Victor never imagined what the results would be. His son wanted help expanding his North American Power team into the new markets in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.
Victor was a corporate professional working in engineering management and didn’t know much about expanding an energy choice team in various states, but when he became a Representative, he found that the free training and free webpage surprisingly helped him find fast success, and soon he became an Area Director.
“What I didn’t expect was an income that would allow me to spend time with my grandsons. When my kids were growing up, I had to spend 60 to 80 hours a week working, and saw so little of them. Now I have the pleasure of sharing this Opportunity to help lots of people with their own personal economic recovery.”
Victor’s wife is also looking forward to spending less time at her job. “That’s great, it’s already helping us meet our future goal of spending lots of time with our two grandsons, and not having to worry about finances while doing so. My suggestion for anyone considering the North American Power Opportunity is to just do it. If not this Opportunity, then what else? There are no more deregulated industries and North American Power is changing the playing field, in fact they’re changing the entire home-based business industry. Just do it!”
