Gary Calhoun, President
Gary started in MLM when he got into his first opportunity shortly after college. Since that time he has excelled in numerous opportunities, such as reaching Regional Vice-President with A.L. Williams, owned a solar company and one of the largest cellular agencies in the US.
He was chosen as “Outstanding Young Men in America 1982”, and in 2003 was selected as “Businessman of the Year” by the National Republican Congressional Committee’s Business Advisory Council.
But not all ventures have been successful. Along with the success, Gary has experienced his share of failures as well. There’s a 2-picture frame on the wall in his office. In one of the picture openings, it states, “Remember Where God Brought You From” and in the other opening… his old Food Stamp card. And as many successful business people have stated, it was adversity and failure that caused them to rise. Gary firmly believes this. “Losing it all then getting up and going again brings a resolve like nothing else. I really believe the success we are experiencing today is a direct result of the adversity I’ve been through” Gary says.
One of Gary’s other attributes is that he has experience as both an affiliate and as a company owner. “When you have been in the field, spending your time, effort, gas, and money, you know more about what it takes to build a successful team and how valuable people are who do it. Plus, it gives you tremendous insight as to how to operate the home office in a more accommodating manner to affiliates.”
Outside of work… Gary is involved in and supports several charitable organizations, such as the Wings of Hope that provides support for families who have young kids with cancer, along with groups that feed the homeless, and care for abused women & children.
Plans are in the making to soon announce the start of an MPB foundation that will expand his efforts in caring for these groups. Gary says, “No child should be hungry or feel unloved when we have the power to do something about it. When people are part of MPB – they are helping do something about it. For that – I am forever grateful!”
