John & Andrea Walen
We know it's a little odd, but our reputation got a little carried away .... people started calling us the "Vacation King" and the "Vacation Queen" ... and it just plain stuck! So that's how we got the "title." If we had to choose one ourselves, we can't think of a better title in the world!
Andrea is passionate about travel and parrots and helping people TRULY LIVE their lives. John is passionate about travel and sports and helping people TRULY LIVE their lives. For the past few years, they've been very thankful to be able to teach people around the globe how to live a fulfilled, fun, happy lifestyle while showing them how to also become financially FREE so as to get out of the "rat race." They have become entrepreneur mentors to men and women from all walks of life. They show them how to start and grow their own businesses that create extraordinary lives. They've even been noted in "Success From Home" and "Voyager" magazines. In July 2013, they were the Feature Article in Voyager Magazine with a 3-page spread describing their successes, which includes to date: taking 118vacations in the past 7 1/2 years (as of December 2016), earning two BMWs, earning three residual incomes creating financial freedom, and retiring from the rat race and teaching others how to do the same. Here's our Mission Statement and tag line: "We teach people how to TRULY LIVE before they die!"
What's their mission?
John and Andrea are on a mission to help people achieve success and financial freedom. Andrea, a dedicated business manager for many years, working long days only to make her bosses rich; and John a long-time Physical Education instructor and sports statistician -- they are now passionate and grateful to have found the way to be able to share their formula for fun, travel, and fulfillment with others.
John and Andrea have a zest for life ... living it to the fullest. Their outgoing, vivacious personalities are infectious. When you meet them, you'll see! Their enthusiasm is contagious, which is why they're drawing in people from around the world to "work" with them. They live a life of working hard, yet knowing how to have fun at the same time. They are hard to keep up with, always doing something fun! Follow them on Facebook, and you'll see! Just ask, and they're sure to share their numerous vacations in the past and those to come! Being focused on their commitment to a loving marriage, a dedication to their three large parrots and saltwater fish and some other exotic pets, and their vitality and zest for life, they are great role models for what CAN be and IS possible -- for those who CHOOSE to MAKE IT HAPPEN! As one of our mentors puts it, "This lifestyle is not for the CHOSEN; it is for the few who CHOOSE."
John and Andrea get to travel often and have learned to do it at wholesale ... they even get to EARN most of their vacations ... and YOU can, too! They have learned the secret to learning how not just to exist ... but to LIVE! Let them teach you, too! People question, "What if it doesn't work?" Our response, "What if it DOES?" But what if that life's not attainable? But what if IT IS? Don't miss it! It's a movement!
Everyone has to die ... but have you LIVED!
Spend some time with John and Andrea to learn how you, too, can change your life and your friends' lives by simply learning the fun formula and then taking the action necessary to achieve it.
Andrea loves trying new things and living life to its fullest. Some of her favorites are: parrots, animals, pets, travel, gadgets, personal development, reading, crossword puzzles, laptops, pro sports, travel, travel, and travel. John has a passion for sports and teaching underprivileged children. You can often find him at some sort of sporting event, from pro sports, minor-league sports, to even a local roller derby match, and anything in between. He's a true leader and passionate about everything he does. His story-telling abilities keep people coming back for more!
Andrea's motto in life has ALWAYS been: Life's short, play hard! (You can even find that comment in her school yearbooks.) And they're doing just that! They TRULY LIVE life to the fullest. They've done so much, traveled so much, but still have so much more they want to see and do! They have a LONG bucket list!
Most of all, John and Andrea are so grateful to have found each other -- their best friend -- to do it all with.
