Taking a Further Look at Bernardo Chua and Organo Gold

Remember when I wrote about Bernardo Chua about a month ago? I’ve been curious about this outstanding businessman. Why don’t we know more about him? Well… I’ve compiled some information so we do!

Winning a prestigious award or two is sure to brine one some attention. So it’s no wonder that people are talking about Bernardo Chua. He recently made a trip to Manila to receive special recognition. His brand, Organo Gold, was given two People’s Choice Awards. One for “Best Gourmet Organic Health Coffee” and another for “Number 1 Global Network Marketing Company”. And he was personally awarded the Dangal ng Bayan Award. 

Of course, that still leaves many people wondering just what Chua and his company are doing to improve the world. It’s obvious that they’re doing something right. But the specifics are a bit more complex. 

One of the most significant accomplishments of Chua and his team of loyal salespeople comes from their relation to a mushroom known as Ganoderma Lucidium. The mushroom combines two amazing properties within itself. It has a unique and delicious taste. And it’s also been a hallmark of traditional Chinese medicine. However, this unique mushroom has remained unknown to a large portion of the world until fairly recently. 

One of Chua’s most noteworthy accomplishments has been the distribution and promotion of products made with Ganoderma Lucidium. It was once something that was isolated within a specific geographical area. And it was isolated culturally in a similar way. Chua was confident in the mushroom’s benefits and decided that he needed to share it with the world. 

That’s why he created Organo Gold in 2008. Chua set himself up for a grand mission. He was going to share this amazing mushroom with people in every corner of the world. And to do so he brought a number of people into the company to help him. 

The results have been nothing less than amazing. In a short amount of time he’s been able to hire over a million distributors. And profits are in excess of $800 million. He’s an amazing success even if one simply focuses on the business side of things. 

But what’s elevated him to the next level of success is his interest in the medical aspects of the plant. He funds a full scientific advisory board which is continually investigating new uses for the mushroom. And in doing so he’s also been able to ensure that his strains are both the most medically beneficial and delicious. 

And that’s what’s most impressive about Chua. He’s dedicated himself to a dream of helping people with his products. He’s brought new jobs to people, new tastes, and even better health.

Marc Sparks: Serial Entrepreneur And Humanist

Marc Sparks has turned his 35 years of experience into one thing. That is capital, and lots of it. He began and has successfully expanded Timber Creek Capital into one of the most thriving business ventures in Texas. The reason being, it isn’t one business, it’s several businesses in one. Seven to be exact. Sparks is also a well known published author that is respected amongst the business community for his brutal advice. Sparks was once quoted as stating “EVERYTHING I have learned and earned came from failing along the way. The average entrepreneur fails 3.8 times before he succeeds. It’s all about how you handle yourself after you fail that will determine your destiny.”

When you enter his magnificent lair office, there is not radical designs that grace the building. There is a massive portrait of Marilyn Monroe that cannot be missed, other than that, the decor is very business like, tastefully done and quite frankly, simplistic throughout. He has an Incubation office, that has several monitors and a few chairs. A war room that is aptly named. I’m certain many brands have come from that room and settlements have been resolved. The lobby of course, the executive office, followed by group work stations.
