Every time I get an email from BK Boreyko and he is telling me about one of the new YPR Leaders, you can tell it rocks his world. For the last couple of years, several of us in the network marketing profesison have been preaching the fact, GenY is the up and coming generation. Well VEMMA’s Young People Revolution is proving us right!
Vemma’s newest Presidential is 24-year-old Jeffrey Jensen, a member of Vemma’s Young People Revolution from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Professional, hardworking, and courteous, Jeffery represents the very best of the powerful young dynamic in Vemma.
Home Office: So what does it feel like to be a Presidential Brand Partner?
“It doesn’t feel real yet. When BK called to congratulate me last Saturday, I told him it’ll feel real at Convention when I’m sitting in a black chair. I did get to buy my wife a new Cadillac SUV — that made her happy — but right now, it’s pretty much business as usual.”
What advice do you have for others?
“It takes work. Just keep going. As Brand Partners, we enjoy a lifestyle of freedom, working when we want, where we want, but we need to put in the effort. I knew I’d be successful from day one, but I saw ups and downs. At the 2011 Convention, I’d dropped down from Diamond to cycling as Bronze. I was sitting in the back row, listening to Darren Hardy talk about creating a successful mentality when I realized I needed to be a better leader. I needed to figure out my why. So I did. And then I got to work. By the next Convention, I was a Star Presidential and was invited to speak just before Darren Hardy — in fact I got to meet him backstage.”
How long have you been with Vemma?
“My story isn’t an amazingly fast ride — I’ve been with Vemma for 3 years. For me, it’s about consistency. Alex Morton and Brad Alkazin say that if you’re a hard worker you can do well with Vemma. That’s how I got here. I’m not particularly talented at this. I’m not a great speaker. I’m an average person with above average dreams and goals.”
Do you have any tips on building a Vemma business with young people?
“Verve is obviously a hit with this age group. Use technology. Facebook is such a big craze. I get 15 or 20 alerts every two hours. And the apps make Vemma really cool. When I tell people there’s a prospecting app, they’re ready to start. Kids are doing this anyway — sending each other videos, Skype-ing, texting, talking on the phone.”
Now that you’ve hit your goal of Presidential by October, what are your next goals?
“I don’t have any other choice but Ambassador by Convention. (Smile) More than anything, I really want to help my team members succeed. I want to help my brother Jason go Presidential by Convention. My friend Richard Bischoff just went Star Presidential last month, and I’d like to see the three of us from Myrtle Beach up there in black chairs at Convention.”
How have you developed your work ethic?
“My dad is the number one reason for whatever work ethic I have today, and I really give him credit for that. From a young age, I had chores and responsibilities. I hated it at the time but I appreciate it now. He and my mom developed a successful business and I saw that there are ups and downs in every business. I learned from them that if you want something, you go for it. It takes work, effort and consistency.”
What advice do you give to new Brand Partners?
“I tell them it’s easier to build fast than slow. The incentives BK’s added are a huge bonus. I can’t even imagine having a car in 90 days!* Take action right away. You don’t have to know everything before you start. You’ve got your upline’s number! That’s all you need.”
What has surprised you in your journey with Vemma?
If I can just encourage Brand Partners with one thing, it’s this: you’re only one person away from an explosion. Sometimes it’s a bit of a roller coaster ride, but if you hit a down spot, stick it out. We all started out with no cycles. Then you go Bronze, and so on. I didn’t wake up as a Presidential. I’ve had ups and downs too. But if you ask any of the people sitting in those black chairs at Convention if it’s worth it, they’ll all say yes.”
