“There is no success in the world that can compensate for failure in the home” is Ryan Jetan’s favorite mantra.
Ryan Jetan, of Orem, Utah has enjoyed a very successful career in Corporate America. However his career kept him away from home and cut time with his family causing some problems as a result. After some serious contemplation he decided that some changes are in order and that his happiness and his family’s happiness need to be his primary goal.
He quit his job to become an entrepreneur and pursue his passions, spend more time with his wife and children, and live life to the fullest.
Over the last 15 years he’s been directly and indirectly involved with Internet marketing but only started to take it seriously after becoming a MOBE Affiliate partner in late 2014. Before joining the Affiliate Partner program, Ryan was hired by MOBE as a corporate consultant so he had an opportunity to see the company from the inside before becoming personally involved in the business giving him a unique perspective that very few get to see.
The decision to join the MOBE Affiliate program paid off very fast as his Top Tier Commissions started accumulating and qualifying him for the MOBE Motors incentive program where MOBE partners get to select a vehicle of their choice all paid for by MOBE. Instead of a car which most partners tend to choose, Ryan wanted something that will allow him to spend more time with his large family as they would not all fit in one car. Instead he opted for a boat that allows him to enjoy his flexible schedule with his family boating on the lake.
Here is the story in Ryan’s own words…
Hi, my name is Ryan Jetan! I’m from Orem, Utah. Welcome to my little piece of heaven! Thanks for joining me.
I wanted to share some information with you. I want to tell you a little bit about the MOBE Motors Program. I’ll tell you a little bit about myself, and what the experience I’ve had with MOBE has been so far.
I’ve been with MOBE for about a year now. I was introduced through a friend of mine. He said that MOBE is doing some fantastic things in the marketplace and suggested I take a look at it.
I actually started working for MOBE on contract. I worked for them in the corporate side of things before I became an affiliate, so I got to see things on the inside. I got to see how they work, and I got to see really what Matt has put together and what he does for people and does for the affiliates.
A little bit about my background. I started in the traditional Corporate America environment. I worked for big businesses.
I can remember 15 years ago being introduced through the Internet and being told that there would come a day when more products and services would be sold online than any other place, any other medium, or any other marketplace. I wanted to believe that because I thought the Internet was fantastic. I thought it was revolutionary. I could never imagine it would become what it is today.
So I’ve been involved in Internet marketing, directly or indirectly for probably the last 15 years, but mostly from the corporate side. It’s about 3 years ago where I’ve had a very serious conversation with myself about what I wanted my life to look like.
Back then, interestingly enough, it always revolved around money, revolved around I want to earn more money or make more money. When that was my number one pursuit, when that was my goal is to make more money, I didn’t make more money and life was not very fulfilling. I can remember the day when I changed my goals. I changed my priorities.
My priorities changed from making lots of money to simply just being happy. I decided that I needed to do things that made me happy, things that I enjoyed. I had to build a lifestyle that I could live life to its fullest.
Working for a corporation or working for a company isn’t bad. I mean you can make a great living. You can build a retirement, but it wasn’t my style. It wasn’t for me. I could put the shirt and tie on every day, but it’s not something I enjoyed. I’d much rather look like this. I know I’d look probably homeless, but this is where I’m most comfortable.
I decided then that I would build some type of business where I could live life – as cliché as it sounds – on my terms. My terms were very simple: I wanted to enjoy my family more.
My wife and I have a very large family. We enjoy our family, but if I was getting up at 6 in the morning, getting dressed and driving an hour to work and working all day, and then coming home, it didn’t matter how much money I made or how much money I had. If I wasn’t spending time with the people I love the most, it just wasn’t right for me.
I had heard a quote a long time ago that stuck with me, that’s one of my personal mantras. It says, “There is no success in the world that can compensate for failure in the home.”
Well, I started seeing those types of things in my life. I started seeing some failures quite honestly in my home.
When I left Corporate America and I came out into this world of entrepreneurship, I came out into this world of Internet marketing, it’s the first time that I felt like I could take a deep breath. I felt like it was for me. I felt like I found a home in this Internet marketing world.
So I looked around for companies to really plant my flag with. I was consulting with several different companies, and I got introduced to MOBE.
MOBE was an international company. They had multinational reach, a large client base. They were growing fast. They had a young entrepreneur that was running it who seemed to have a lot of the same goals and aspirations as I did, and so I worked for them.
I worked for them for about 6 months before I realized that what the company did was powerful. I realized that it works. From my side of things and the corporate side of MOBE, I got to see how many affiliates were joining their program. I got to see how much money they were making. I got to see the lifestyle they were living, and the more that I saw that, the more I realized that I just might have found a home, so I did.
I’ve been here a year. I’m absolutely enjoying it. I got to see and work with a lot of people. I got to travel the world with my wife, and it’s just something that I wouldn’t trade for anything.
Fast forward, probably about 3 months later after that, I started talking to my wife about this program inside of MOBE for affiliates. It was called MOBE Merc.
What it was is if you produced as an affiliate, if you produced sales and you were doing well, MOBE would actually pay for you to go out and buy a Mercedes. When I saw the program originally, I thought Mercedes are nice cars, I got to admit. But it’s not my style.
If you look around, I’m sitting in my backyard. I live next to a lake. I live up in the mountains. My wife and I are avid snow boarders, and wakeboarders, and bicyclists, and runners. Driving around in a Mercedes just really wasn’t my style.
About January of 2015, Matt realized that most people thought Mercedes were nice but they’re in the same boat I was. They didn’t really want a Mercedes, and so he changed the name of the program.
He changed it to MOBE Motors. The first thing that popped in my mind was, “Now, I can go buy a different car. I don’t have to buy a Mercedes. I can buy something else.”
And so my wife and I got online. Every night, I was online searching for fancy cars and exotic cars because it didn’t have to be a Mercedes. I kept gravitating towards the sports cars, these little two-seater sport scars.
I don’t know if you can tell it, but I’m 6-foot 4. I don’t really fit in a two-seater sports car, but I wanted one. It was kind of a status symbol, I think. It’s kind of evidence to myself that I had succeeded or that I had done something good.
I’ll never forget that my wife came to me in the middle of January. She said, “You know what, if we buy a Porsche, or Lamborghini, or something like that, those are nice but you realize that only two people fit in a Porsche.”
I laughed and I said, “Okay. Where are you going with this?”
She said, “Our entire family can fit in a boat.”
My eyeballs kind of got big and round. My first thought was we were supposed to buy a car in the MOBE Motors Program and I got this little smirk in my smile.
I called up Matt. I said, “Matt, you know in the United States, we don’t call automobiles motors. That might be an Australian thing or European thing, I’m not sure. But for MOBE Motors, can we buy anything with a motor?” I chuckled a little bit because I didn’t know how we was going to respond to it.
He said, “Give me an example.”
I said, “Well, my wife and I, we have six children. We love the outdoors. I mean we got this gorgeous lake in our backyard for goodness sakes. It’s 2 miles from our house.” I said, “We want to buy a boat. It has a motor. What do you think?”
He thought about it for a minute and he said, “Yeah, I think that will work.”
I got so excited. Three days later, we went out and bought a boat. My wife to this day will tell you that it was her idea, and that’s okay because I appreciate it.
I got to tell you, reaching a level of success, or reaching a level of result that could evidence itself in your life to support your lifestyle, to me it was a blessing.
It was a way for me to share my results and my successes with my family. The more I think about me driving me around in a little two-seater sports car with my wife and leaving my kids on with the babysitter just didn’t fit for the way we live our lives. We like to do everything all out, like to do them altogether.
I got to tell you, buying the boat was one of the most important things that we’ve done recreationally for our family in a long time. They look forward to it. They’ll have fun on it, and we have a lot more fun than we ever would in a sports car.
That’s one of the things that I appreciate about MOBE, and I really respect about what Matt has built is that you can choose your lifestyle. When you reach a certain level of result, or a certain level of success, you get to choose what your life looks like and you get to choose how those rewards evidence themselves in your life.
Now I’m not saying that you won’t ever catch me driving around in a little two-seater sports car because that still may happen. But for right now, we are very happy with our brand-new boat.
We thank MOBE and we thank the MOBE Motors Program for allowing us this opportunity, and I can tell you that we’re going to have many summers to come where we’re enjoying this beautiful landscape and this fun recreational vehicle.
