Watertree Health MVP Spotlight: Lee Waid
Lee Waid, from Detroit, has been a Watertree Health® Representative for over 3 years, since November 22, 2012 to be exact. For Lee, this day is most memorable because it was the day that would change his life and his family’s lives forever. This month, March 2016, he is our all-deserving MVP.
There is never a shortage of kind words that can be said for Lee. He has made a profound impression on everyone in the company, from our Founders and President, to each individual Rep, experienced and new. Everyone at Watertree Health has heard about Lee Waid.
Today we’re taking the opportunity to tell you more about the incredible man who continuously raised the bar, making the impossible, possible out in the field. Not only has Lee achieved and maintained his position as number one Rep, but he has also contributed to the overall growth of Watertree Health and personally helped tens of thousands of people afford their medications.
Before Watertree Health, Lee had fallen on hard times financially. He also had experienced health issues that required costly medication. At the time, he was working door-to-door sales, living paycheck-to-paycheck and racking up medical bills on top of paying for very expensive medication. Lee was forced to split and ration the 5 pills prescribed a day until a pharmacy technician gave him a prescription discount card to ease some of the burden.
When he saw an ad online for a position at Watertree Health, he knew that this was his opportunity to give a personal testimony and help others afford the medicines they needed to get healthy. Lee dove right in, putting his whole heart and soul into helping others through Watertree Health.
“When Lee came on board, we were on the phone every day—his passion moved me. His primary goal was to make sure his community was being taken care of. He recognized the relationship between working and getting people the help they deserved,” said Trina, Lee’s Director.
“You have to put yourself in other people’s shoes. It’s easy for me to do because I went 8 years without insurance,” Lee shared.
During his 3 years with Watertree Health, Lee has formed a simple, yet powerful success model. “I run my business the way I want to be treated,” said Lee. He is a man who truly listens to other people, gives thoughtful advice, and constantly spreads love and encouragement to those around him. Whenever we get together as a company, he makes it a personal goal to spend time with everyone.
“I’ve always been a team player because I love the camaraderie at Watertree Health. It’s unique to have everyone on the same page. It’s almost too good to be true,” said Lee.
We’re just as lucky, if not luckier, to have found Lee. He continues to give and give, helping fellow Reps and offering his humble advice. Now, he will have the opportunity to share that advice with his own daughter, Renée, who is joining the team in Detroit.
“This job has been a saving grace for me and my family. My grandkids Garrett and Aubrey are my life. We’re going to Florida for 10 days for MLB Spring Training this month.”
Thank you Lee for all you give to your community, family, and our mission at Watertree Health. Although you’re one of the pioneers, we know this is only the beginning, and we look forward to what the future holds as we lock arms with you!
