"Don't give up. Put your best foot forward and
jump in with both feet."
Vector Marketing Success Story:
"If he could do it, so could I," said Anthony
Gonzales, about a friend who was successful selling
CUTCO. As a college junior Anthony saw the Vector
opportunity as a way to make good money and still
have time to concentrate on school and play
Deciding that he wanted more, Anthony asked his
friend for "the number for that CUTCO thing?" He
laughed, "At first, my parents wanted to know if I
was sure I wanted to quit my so-called stable job at
$5 an hour working at a water slide park to go sell
knives." Anthony began selling CUTCO and within 10
months was a branch manager.
Running his first branch office was, "The best
experience of my life – creating something and
reaping the rewards. At 21 I went to a new place,
didn't know anyone, started with nothing and had to
build something up." His branch was in the top 10
for the Western zone.
"After that I felt like I could do anything." The
next summer he ran another branch office that was in
the top 10 nationwide.
Anthony did well selling and kept up with school. In fact, he won two of
Vector's All American scholarships.
"I'm so glad I could take advantage of it and I recommend that every college
student at least try it," he said.

He always dreamed of being a teacher and left Vector to
pursue that dream. After a couple of years, however, he
decided teaching wasn't for him and began to set his
sights on something different.
"With Vector I
learned sales skills – one of the biggest things interviewers
look for." He landed a great job as an account executive with a title
company and continues to be successful and enthusiastic about life.
