Health Makes the Difference
Correlating Weight Loss and Financial Success
By: Pamela Rossow
Shedding 200 lbs. through sheer grit 5 years ago to recently breaking a company’s sales record of $500,000 in only 2 months, Peter Ajello has not only earned his title as “Weight Loss King,” but he has also revealed that weight loss and financial success are key ingredients in the same recipe. His “tell it like it is” tips are applicable to anyone who wants to improve their physical and financial health.
“I’m motivated to hit $1,000,000 in sales by the end of the year.” Peter Ajello is anything but a typical salesman. As Project Manager of Nu-Crete Surgeons, LLC, a subdivision of Xtreme Polishing Systems that specializes in commercial and residential concrete floor polishing and design, Peter is passionate about his job after dropping pounds. Friend and owner of Nu-Crete, Chris Lavin, named Peter “Salesman of the Month” because his sales broke every previous company record.
Lavin is also confident that good health means increased sales. Lavin was so inspired by Dan McDonald AKA “Life Regenerator,” that he hired a raw food chef to prep meals for Peter and his other employees. Peter commends Lavin’s support along with Peter’s partner, David Issan. “I really couldn’t have done any of this without Dave,” Peter says, and, “Chris offers such a healthy working environment.”
Peter wasn’t always the picture of health and financial success. In 2007 and weighing 445 lbs., he was tired—too tired from consuming junk food to work full-time at XPS in Deerfield Beach as a salesman for Chris Lavin. He was lethargic and embarrassed to face clients. He was eating himself into a financial tailspin. He had a hard time dragging himself off the couch to go to work.
After self-reflection—or maybe it was the $15,000 bet from his buddies that he couldn’t drop 100 lbs. in 5 months—Peter found his will power and polished it till it gleamed. By using weight loss principles, he put his mind over body and lost 200 lbs. without stomach staples or gastric bypass. He became “Boca’s Biggest Loser” and documented this narrative in his book “Mind Over Body.”
He didn’t regain his life. He earned a new one—filled with compassion, success, a great lifestyle and much gratitude. Peter Tunney, acclaimed modern artist and Peter’s mentor stated, “Say only what you mean, be humble and embrace life—then you will have success.” Peter did and has reaped the rewards. He encourages anyone who wants physical and financial success, “If you speak from the heart, am grateful and work hard just like I trained hard, you can achieve any goal.”
Peter Ajello, seen on “The Doctors” show, is the author of “Mind Over Body” available on Amazon and rated 5 out of 5 stars. “Mind Over Body” chronicles Peter’s journey from 5XL shirts, size 56 pants and a diabetic stroke to weight loss success. His second book “The Chocolate Diet” is scheduled for release before Valentine’s Day and reveals how he shed pounds with the help of special organic chocolates. As a guest speaker, Peter has toured the country encouraging thousands of people to take their weight and in turn, their success, into their own hands.
