Too many Americans often complain about the lack of opportunity in their home country and the declining economic prospects of today’s generations versus those of yesteryear. But it helps to put things in perspective. Throughout the world, the rule, rather than the exception, is hardship. Many regions throughout the globe have such poor prospects of social mobility that de facto caste systems effectively determine what station in life someone and their family will occupy, with virtually no chance of social upward mobility. This can be seen in places from India to China, where the chance of achieving anything above subsistence for the average person is virtually nil.
Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis understood these grim facts as well as anyone. The couple had long been involved in international commerce and recruiting people to join their companies in areas around the globe. They saw, first hand, how people who lived in grinding poverty would get caught in generational traps, kept in low economic conditions by vicious cycles of things like not being able to afford education, malnutrition and even the inability to afford decent clothes.
It was for this reason that when Ray and Lewis decided to found Jeunesse Global in 2009, they wanted to do something special. They wanted to create a company that would be able to provide American-style economic opportunity to some of the most disadvantaged people across the globe. To do this, Ray and Lewis created one of the most lucrative business plans in the direct-selling industry. The Jeunesse Global business plan that they created gives distributors up to six different income streams. Distributors are able to earn money directly from selling products to customers. But they are also able to earn from signing up new recruits to the business’ salesforce as well as earning incentive commissions for all of their own recruits who in turn build their own successful businesses. All told, these income streams can amount to a great deal of money over the long run.
This has given Jeunesse Global a leg up in developing the most important element in any business: having the best people dedicated to its growth.
