You and I are no different from each other. We both want the same thing and that is to bring happiness to our family. In order for that to happen, we need to be successful. And that is why I chose to be a part of a team of like-minded entrepreneurs. Let me share my experience with XTRM 1-11 and how it’s all about succeeding in life.

I Had a Serious Health Concern

On the first quarter of 2014, I was still taking my children to school. After dropping them off, I would go to one of the coffee shops nearby.

It was not a good time for me during those days. I was going through personal issues and had completely neglected my health. Suffice to say, I experienced several episodes of sharp chest pains.

After battling years of depression, I found myself climbing out of a deep hole by the second quarter. “I need to live. I need to get better and live more productive years.”

Our family used to be a part-owner of a pharmaceutical manufacturing company. So I do have a rudimentary knowledge of the supplements industry. Without going into the details, I have a negative impression.

I started researching to look for the best dietary food supplements in the world. It was not easy as I found myself reading scientific journals and research papers. After four months, I found a brand I could trust.

A company based in Utah called USANA Health Sciences manufactures pharmaceutical grade nutritional products. The good news is that they have an office in the Philippines. But because it is a direct selling company, it took another month before I found a distributor I could trust.

Paul Christian de la Fuente

I was one of the godparents at Paul and his wife’s wedding. It was a good thing that I remembered they were active distributors of USANA Health Sciences. Even if I knew the products are good, I didn’t want to call the head office. I had the impression that network marketers are too persistent.

On August of 2014, we met up and to cut the long story short, I enrolled and purchased the products I needed.

One of the things Paul mentioned during our meeting was how he is a part of a team called XTRM 1-11. The membership comprises independent distributors of USANA Health Sciences. Because Paul is my sponsor, I became a part of the team.

USANA Independent Distributor

A day after enrolling, I started a series of trips to different provinces in the Philippines. I brought all USANA products with me as I explored the whole Occidental and Oriental Mindoro.

It was strange at the beginning. I was not used to taking food supplements, but my body needs the nutrients. So I took the recommended dosage daily. One morning a little over a week since I started using the products, I woke up feeling better than I had in years.

Weeks later, I found myself becoming an active distributor.

XTRM 1-11

The team organizes regular training and workshops, which I attended. During the weekly gathering, I came to know a lot of great people whom I now call friends.


I had lived in a negative environment for so long that it had not only taken a toll on my body but also mentally. It was shocking to me at the beginning when I saw the positivity of everyone in the team.

“Surround yourself with positive people,” says Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan. “So you can absorb their energy.”

The more time I spent with my XTRM 1-11 teammates, the more positive I became.

Personal Development

I was able to attend seminars organized by XTRM 1-11 featuring the top speakers in the country. Among them are Francis Kong, Anthony Pangilinan, and Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan. Once I was able to attend a seminar by John Maxwell.

What Zig Ziglar said about attitude determining your altitude is true. The more I listened, the more I realized how personal development is the key to succeeding in life.


It’s a great feeling to have new friends. What makes it better is that I am in the company of people who have the same passion as I did. Even better is the culture of XTRM 1-11.

Regardless if another person is a stranger, so as long as that person is a part of the team, everyone helps.

Succeeding in Life

Ordinary people living extraordinary lives. Do dreams come true? If you have the desire, then it is possible to turn a dream into reality.

Far more important than earning a fortune, it is how we add value to other people that give us fulfillment. It is in helping other people that we help ourselves succeed in life.
