Master in the Art of Living: Eric Allen

International Marketing Director Eric Allen is a firm believer in Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Officer Wayne Nugent’s “Master in the Art of Living” philosophy. So much so, that Eric’s empowering high-quality servant leaders to plug them into our proven events culture.
Before he found his WorldVentures career path, Eric wanted to be a college basketball coach at the Division I level. He taught and coached for several years in high school in Indianapolis, Indiana. Before long, he was offered an assistant coaching position at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
It had always been Eric’s dream to belong to a Division I basketball program, and yet, he wasn’t happy.
“Chasing my dream of becoming a D-I college basketball coach was turning into a nightmare,” Eric says. “I was missing out on my kids growing up. So, slowly I started to look for something different. Something where I could get my life back.”
When he started looking for a new path, Eric transitioned into direct sales. He had some initial success, but ultimately the company folded.
Eric wasn’t sure where his life would take him, but then he ran into Matt Morris who showed him how to make a complete lifestyle change. Intrigued, Eric made the decision that WorldVentures would be his last run at creating a legacy for future generations.
Eric realized that WorldVentures offers people the chance to make lasting memories with friends and family. Over the past three and a half years, Eric has become a International Marketing Director and is grateful for the change of pace WorldVentures has brought to his life.
Eric took no time to spread the word about WorldVentures. As a result, he’s met various people who are now talented, creative members of his team. He believes continuous improvement is essential, and wants to lead by example, which is why he attends every WorldVentures event.
The biggest change is Eric’s family life. He was rarely home for the first half of his 10-year-old son, Bryce’s life. But now he has an abundance of quality experiences with his wife Casey and their three boys: 3-year-old Brad, 2-year-old Landon and Bryce.
As for future goals, Eric wants to build a legacy that will change the course of his family and future generations.
“That’s where a lot of the leaders are, and you can make even more of a difference in people’s lives at that level,” Eric says.
