Five years prior to getting started, Jeff was introduced to ACN through a friend, Patrick Maser. The timing wasn’t right, and instead of seizing the opportunity, Jeff chose to open a traditional business, which turned into 5 cell phone store locations, in 3 different states. On the outside he appeared successful, but the reality was he owned a business that really owned him. He was working 80-90 hrs a week, his income was going down, yet the expenses continued to go up. Close to bankruptcy, frustrated, and desperate, Patrick re entered Jeff’s life with the ACN opportunity at the perfect time.
Jeff immediately saw there was a system that was in place, that with the combination of work ethic and coach-ability, they could create success. After 19 months and help from Michael Maser and Patrick Maser, Jeff became a Regional Vice President. The ACN opportunity has brought much more than just the financial reward. It has forced him to grow personally and professionally, it has allowed him to help others create success, and he feels thankful and blessed to be part of such a unique opportunity. Jeff attribute’s his success to the system, the incredible leadership, and hard work. ACN has given Jeff the freedom he was always looking for. In August of 2011, Jeff was featured in a 2 page spread in Success From Home Magazine. Today he lives on the sand in Newport Beach, California is more excited than ever about his future with ACN. Jeff Attributes his success to the system developed by Patrick Maser and Michael Maser
“Special skills or talent is not really important in finding success in network marketing. It’s more so being sold out to a system and making personal sacrifices to bring a strong work ethic to the table. There is no ceiling and the sky is the limit for individuals that are willing to do these things.” -Jeff Street, August 2011 edition of Success From Home Magazine-
Platinum Regional Vice President
Gil Pementel started business ownership in the auto industry, but when an accident happened that broke his back he was forced to find something less physical. After some time as an analyst with Penzoil, Gil became a mortgage broker and owned his own office. In September of 2007, having closed the office, writing loans out of his house and down to $5700 in savings that was quickly being used to cover the debt. Gil was introduced to ACN. Gil says, “When I saw the presentation, the residual income jumped out at me as the world’s greatest annuity. I had network marketing experience in other companies, so I knew the power of network marketing. When I found this opportunity that wasn’t tied to over priced products, but to services that we all use anyway it created the perfect vehicle for me to provide a lifestyle for my family that is second to none. We are truly grateful for what ACN and Michael Maser and Patrick Maser, have brought to our lives.”
The Team Coordinator position was accomplished by Gil in 5 ½ months, and RVP in an astounding 16 months. Mr. Pementel oversees the activity in the Manchester, NH market place, and has opened a second New England training center in Portland Maine. Gil attributes this to a “monster” work ethic, the Rock Star system created by Patrick Maser and Michael Maser, and an overall desire to succeed.
We took a look at ACN and decided to run hard with the opportunity from day one and have not looked back since. Patrick Maser, and Michael Maser provided us with an opportunity to dream again. The pressures of where we would be in 10 years financially when it was time for our four beautiful children: Taylor, Brooke, Ava, and Chase to attend college was just to much of a burden that we did not want to live with that feeling day in and day out. We wanted more for our kids then we knew that we would be capable of providing by leading the lives we were leading.
We felt as if we were meant to do great things in life and ACN was the vehicle that we truly believed would get us there. Here we have an opportunity to changes thousands of lives along the way and we will led by example and we will be there for every member of our team, day in and day out. In ACN you can not succeed on your own and we realized that very quickly. We will change the legacy of not just our lives but a legacy that will continue for years and years to come for this family.
We have one goal in this business. SVP/CIRCLE MEMBERS
Nothing will stop us! We just want to win! This team will win!
We live by a quote that was given to us by one of our mentors… “Be so good, that they can’t ignore you!”
We owe a special thanks to our entire team, and to three VERY SPECIAL brothers and one REAL special lady….Patrick Maser, Michael Maser, and Cynthia Maser.

For over ten years, Paul Pelletier owned and operated a successful construction company building high-end homes throughout Connecticut. In autumn of 2008, his business came to a halt due to the down economy. After having worked for 16 months straight without a day off, he realized that he had become a slave to his business. He found himself praying for “something that he could work with” when he and his wife Dawn were introduced to ACN.
The idea of making residual income on recession-proof, essential services that people need and use every day just made sense to him. Although Dawn was skeptical when she first heard about ACN, she had a big reason “why” she was open to listening to a new opportunity.
After 25 years of working her way up the corporate ladder, Dawn found herself in a place where she had no time freedom, working 60-70 hours a week. Her profession demanded so much time and attention that family life was almost non-existent. Nothing means more to Paul and Dawn than to enjoy life with their two sons, Kyle and Alex, and help them achieve their dreams.
Paul and Dawn saw countless others having success with ACN’s amazing business model so they stepped in bringing their coach-ability and work ethic with them. Following the system that #1 SVPs Michael and Patrick Maser created, Paul and Dawn became the first Team Coordinators and Regional Directors in the state of Connecticut.
Today, they are on the path to making all their dreams come true – being able to share and enjoy life with their boys, and give back to their family and church in a way they would have never imagined before. ACN and Michael Maser and Patrick Maser and continue to be the answer to their prayers!

I came to the U.S. from Bangladesh in 2001 with no circle of friends or family, and really had to start from scratch. I thought that business ownership was the way to achieve the American dream and so started my first small business. It wasn’t long before I realized that I didn’t own my business but business owned me. There was no time for my family and friends. My routine revolved around my business leaving me no time for the people I cared about. When the recession hit in late 2007, I lost all of my savings and found myself having to start from scratch all over again.
In July 2011, a Philadelphia police officer came to my store. He introduced himself to me and asked me a simple question Jewel, do you look at other ways to make money?”. My answer was “Absolutely”. With my savings gone, I was looking at everything and anything. When I saw the ACN opportunity video, it made one hundred percent sense to me. I had already tried product based marketing previously so when I saw this service based marketing business, it made complete sense to me. Here was a business that did not require you to change anybody’s buying habits. I jumped in right away and through a strong work ethic as well as being coachable I was able to achieve success. I was fortunate enough to get mentorship from the number 1 SVP’s in ACN: Patrick and Michael Maser who stayed with me through all of the ups and downs.
I am grateful that this opportunity came by and I owe my success to the ACN system as well as Patrick Maser and Michael Maser. It’s allowed me to spend more time with my family. My goal is to help the others in my team achieve their ACN goals.
