Today, Robert Mercado is living the American dream and is an inspiration to everyone who hears his powerful story. He is announcing his dedication to helping others improve their lives and reach their financial goals. The United States poverty number in 2012 was near 15.0 percent, which represents close to 50 million people living at or below the poverty line.
This marked the second consecutive year that neither the official poverty rate nor the number of people in poverty were statistically different from the previous year’s estimates. The 2012 poverty rate was 2.5 percentage points higher than in 2007, the year before the economic downturn. According to Census Bureau real median household income and the poverty rate were not statistically different from the previous year, while the percentage of people without health insurance coverage decreased. Median household income in the United States in 2012 was $51,017, not statistically different in real terms from the 2011 median of $51,100.
This has not affected Mercado who has become a fast rising business superstar. “It was only 18 months ago that I was working in a diner 6 to 7 days a week, 12 hours a day. I loved the people I worked with, but was really struggling financially. One day, my landlord knocked on my door and told me that I was 3 months behind on rent, and that I would have to move out. That suddenly left me homeless. I knew I had to do something to change my financial situation, but I didn’t know what,” says Mercado
His business has made over $300,000 in the last 18 months since it started.
