In 2005, Rick Jerrells was a top earner in another company and he was building relationships that would shape his future in Valentus.
Rick, Valentus CEO Dave Jordan and Valentus Blue Diamond Korey Johnson were three of the top earners in the company. Rick was impressed with the work ethic of both Dave and Korey, so when Dave asked Rick to join Valentus in 2014, Rick immediately jumped on board.
“I knew Dave had a lot of good connections and he was a great marketer, so I was excited to work with him,” Rick says. But beyond his experience with Dave, Rick’s experience in network marketing had laid a foundation for what he knew to look for in a direct sales company. His No. 1 requirement was simplicity.
“The business needs to be simple when you are running a home-based business,” Rick says.
The sampling program showcases the simplicity. Instead of asking someone to spend money on a product, people can sample the product and experience the benefits for themselves as well as taste the deliciousness. “The ease of the business makes it unique and much easier than a pill-or-potion type of company,” he says.
Rick builds his Valentus business through a DMO (Daily Method of Operation). He sets a goal of how many new people to contact in a day or in a week. Then he lets the products speak for themselves. “When people sample the products, they get results,” he says.
“It’s a valid business without spending a ton of money. It’s duplicatable.”
But it’s not only the products that make Valentus powerful. The products paired with the compensation plan make Valentus stand out in the industry. “The compensation is simple to understand and pays out in so many different ways,” Rick says. “The ease at which you can see your money and where it’s coming from is important.”
Building a network comes easier now than it did back when Rick first met Dave in1999. “There’s Facebook; there’s LinkedIn — there are so many more ways to expose a business,” he says. “The world is smaller because of the internet.” The simplicity and ease of the company make it easy for anyone to join. “There are so many people making money in our company that never made money in networking before,” Rick says. “This truly is a winning opportunity and those don’t come along very often.”
Ricks personal favorite product is Prevail Energy which fuels his athleticism. “It’s the best thermogenics in the marketplace,” he says.

The product line addresses the shortcomings of the metabolism and provides the body with what it needs to correct itself. Energy is my favorite!
What challenges have you faced?
There are always up and down situations in any company but the main thing to achieve success is commitment, discipline and loyalty. You can never become success or maintain credibility jumping around to different companies. With 29+ years in network marketing Rick knows the ropes.
