At just 24 years old, Maxime Pierre has a lifetime worth of obstacles. A promising young French footballer, Maxime signed his first contract with a native club at age 15. Just six months after arriving for training, however, Maxime suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in his knee. After months of recovery, he suffered the same injury in only his third game back. The subsequent recovery process resulted in an infection and a handful of surgeries in a two week period. Finally, a blood disease took complete mobility from the injured knee. His football dreams halted even more quickly than they had begun.
A New Path
“You know, I really felt like I was disappointing my loved ones when my dream of becoming a professional footballer went out,” Maxime explained. “ I had such a rage in my stomach that I could only succeed, I had no choice. I thought of success from morning to evening. I dreamed of success.” This rage pushed Maxime to find a new path to success. In 2016, he was introduced to network marketing, quickly seeing the potential to achieve a new kind of dream in this area. By 2018, he had joined two network marketing companies, and by 2020, had built a network of over 30,000 customers and partners worldwide.
Despite this rapid success in the industry, Maxime remains grounded in his approach. “To continue to grow, I must continue to grow,” he says. “The key is to continue the actions that have allowed us to get there, even to accentuate them.” He studies other languages to expand his global network, trains his body virtually every day, and engages in activities such as reading and meditation that hone his mind and spirit. This approach, coupled with working alongside people Maxime says he genuinely loves as people, has brightened his thinking and his results.
The Next Step
With these brightened results comes a thirst for more success. Maxime’s continuous work and development is born of a dedication not only to his own success, but to that of others as well, offering the financial education and guidance his company provides. “I don’t want to have any limits,” Maxime begins. “I want this project to be known on all continents!” From his prodigious childhood to tumultuous teens to the massive success of his early twenties, Maxime insists that perseverance and self-improvement are key. But he also encourages aspiring entrepreneurs to allow themselves some patience and understanding. “Have fun and be patient,” he says. “Nothing is done without pleasure and you can’t work a lot without passion. [Do not] be too rushed, success will come when it is ready. Work just to become ready.”
