In February 2016, Cassandra Pope became an International Marketing Director, one of the few African American women in WorldVentures to do so.
“Getting to that goal was like a sigh of relief,” Cassandra says. “I’d been working tirelessly for the last four years, and I felt like I could finally breathe. It was a beautiful thing to know that I could actually do it — not just for myself, but for others. I think my story can bring hope to people.”
In her pre-WorldVentures life, Cassandra was a special needs nurse coordinator working 90-hour weeks. She was raising two children who were in before- and after-school care, and who were often asleep by the time she arrived home after another shift.
Appearances, however, can be deceiving. The family was doing OK financially, but they hadn’t taken a vacation in years. All of these competing demands left Cassandra exhausted, unable to sleep or devote the time she wanted to her family. And travel was an impossible dream.
After a colleague introduced Cassandra to WorldVentures, she started a business, worked it into her lunch breaks and began growing her team quickly. Within six months, she left her full-time position to pursue WorldVentures. She’d found the gift she’d been praying for.
As a new IMD, Cassandra’s focus has shifted. Having realized the rewards of both financial and time freedom, she set her next goal: to reach down the ladder and help others move up. And that’s exactly the spirit behind Founder and Chief Visionary Officer Wayne Nugent’s Master in the Art of Living philosophy.
“Wayne is the epitome of happiness and joy,” Cassandra says. “He’s an awesome role model for everyone. He has a huge heart, and he has everyone’s best interests at heart. We all strive to be the best version of ourselves. My goal at this point is to help a lot of people reach their goals. I’m really working to help my team so they can achieve the time and financial freedom that I have. That’s my priority.”
Wayne, she adds, has demonstrated by example that a Master in the Art of Living achieves success only by helping others achieve their dreams. In fact, a true Master in the Art of Living has plenty of good company, because he or she always has a hand out to pull others up. That’s a pursuit that never really ends, which perhaps is the most fulfilling part of this business.
