In the opening scene of the movie Gladiator, Roman General Maximus encourages his troops by reminding them to win the battle with "Strength and Honor". In the network marketing arena, Athena Costas is a modern day Maximus, leading her troops everyday to build a rapidly expanding home based business.
Said Athena, "Everything that was important to Maximus was taken away. But he uses his internal strength to achieve glory andÂin many waysÂthat is a reflection of my life."
Born in New Jersey, Athena moved to Puerto Rico in the early 1970Âs. Being the eternal entrepreneur, Athena sold tropical flowers to large hotels until 1989 when Hurricane Hugo destroyed everything she owned. Always the survivor, Athena moved down to the city where she created a curriculum for a nail course on acrylic nails for schools of cosmetology in Puerto Rico. She then taught the nail course, as well as owned and operated two large beauty salons. In 1996 her father became very ill and she moved back to New Jersey to take care of him. In 2002, after working as a lease manager for the Ford Motor Company, Athena was introduced to an income opportunity out of Arizona whose focus was Self Improvement.
"I saw this as a vehicle to earn a living from home while I tended to my father." said Athena. "I had a lot of success with that business, but had reached the point where I wanted a company that stressed teamwork over individualism and had a more solid management team.Â
"I discovered Emerald Passport early this year." said Athena "It was love at first sight for me and I knew this was too good of an opportunity to pass up." Two years of research and development have gone into creating EPIÂs "Cyberspace Masterpiece" in an industry positioned for rapid growth. ÂWebucation is the next great growth opportunity."

Athena is working her EPI business fulltime and is very excited with the outlook for 2005 and beyond. "Like Maximus, IÂve survived many challenges. There is a saying that "winners never quit and quitters never win" and IÂm looking for people who want to feel connected as a team and weÂll work together to build our dreams.Â said Athena, ÂI love this opportunity and so will anyone thatÂs open minded and serious about making a change in their life!Â Athena, now a Florida resident, can be reached at her home office by phone: 941-756-8974 or via the World Wide Web at http://www.Galeria.igi-art.com.
