Alan & Margaret BishopASEA Diamond Executive
Alan Bishop’s passion to help others enjoy increased health and wellness has evolved into more than a hobby or business—it’s his lifestyle.
Alan Bishop has always enjoyed immersing himself in learning and discovering how things work. A mechanical engineer by training, he was instrumental in helping to develop robotic manufacturing equipment for Intel, and he later ran a wind tunnel type facility for the U.S. Navy.
His thirst for knowledge led him to health over 40 years ago, and he began sharing his knowledge with those around him. The health and wellness industry became more than a hobby for Alan, it became something he wanted to do full time. So 22 years ago, he started a health-related business from home that proved to be so successful, he was able to retire from his engineering profession and focus entirely on his business.
When Alan learned about ASEA, naturally the engineer-side of him wanted to know more about the redox signaling technology, while the entrepreneurial side of him was attracted to the business opportunity.
“The revolutionary technology, coupled with the personal testimonials of people I met, was a strong incentive for me to learn more,” he says. Alan knew that the business opportunity could only be as good as the product.
“For me, the product drives the opportunity. I believe these molecules are just as critical to life as oxygen,” he says.
Next, Alan checked out the ASEA opportunity. “Meeting with the founders at a fly-in convinced me that this company is on solid ground. I strongly identify with the concept of principle and purpose ahead of ego and economics. For me, integrity is paramount.” ASEA was the perfect balance and match for Alan.
In September 2012, Alan jumped into his ASEA journey full-time with two clear goals in mind. “First, I wanted to fulfill my mission of teaching people how to be healthy, and second, I wanted to build a strong ASEA business.” His focus on his goals, powered by his personal ambition to help others, enabled Alan to achieve Diamond Executive level. “There are so many great leaders in this company. I feel privileged to be a part of that in some small way,” he shares.
“Be consistent!” is Alan’s advice to other associates who have to goal to achieve a Diamond Executive level. “If a person can grow their business by several associates and a few percent each week, they will reach Gold or above in a year or two, if not sooner.” He also encourages his team to be coachable and compassionate.
Alan has found that for him, the best way to build his team is through one-on-one calls with business builders in his group and doing three-way calls with prospects. “We ask people to think about who they know that needs the product because we are here on Earth to bless others. There are a number of great products on the market supported by good companies. I believe that Redox Signaling Molecules have a more significant impact on our long-term health than any other technology I have experienced. The world needs this product. The money is a measurement of how many people we have helped.”
Alan and his wife, Margaret, have been debt-free for many years, so they enjoy the opportunity to help family members financially through ASEA. “I thrive on seeing people overcome health challenges, and on seeing people grow. ASEA gives me purpose,” he says. “Spending the hours and days of your life doing something that ultimately benefits other people is the most important thing you can do to make your own life significant.”
