    Jesse McKinney CEO and Co-Founder of Red Aspen

    Jesse McKinney CEO and Co-Founder of Red Aspen

    Jesse McKinny is a force of nature and a rapidly rising star in the Social Selling space.   Jesse was born into greatness and a destiny in Direct Selling.  Her father Spencer Reece is perhaps the most prominent legal counsel in this 40 billion dollar profession and her mother, recently retired was the CEO of a Billion dollar health care company.   Mom was awarded as one of the “50 most recognized medical professionals” in the United States.
     
    After a prestigious stint at the University of Denver’s business school Jesse was awarded her Master’s in organizational leadership from Gonzaga University.  ( Go Zags!).   While raising her two young boys and building a family with her husband Trevor, she learned first-hand how billion-dollar Direct Selling companies where built where Culture is King as an executive with Scentsy…the bemouth success story based in her home town of Boise. 
     
    While dealing with a life-threatening pregnancy with her second son, Jesse caught the vision of what she needed to do with her life….a much bigger life that lay in front of her.  With her sister Genie Reece and best friend Amanda Moore this triad of creativity and courage cooked up the idea for Red Aspen…an iconic tree representing community with its shared root structure.  They started with their mission…even before they knew what they were going to sell or how.   “ “ To Inspire Women to Stand Up, Stand Out and Stand Together by Uniting Passion with Purpose”.   To this day they start every meeting, every event online and live with this declaration.  Every staff member and every Brand Ambassador knows it by heart.  It is the DNA of their business.
     
    Such visionary leadership led the trio to launch into high-quality stick-on lashes and press on nails and a social selling platform that focused on fun, creativity and courage.   From the very first Brand Ambassador, Amanda Moore’s sister to the tens of thousands that found their way to the company after her, Red Aspen women love the mission, love the products and love what the income option can do for their families.
     
    As CEO Jesse has led the company to double digit annual growth and industry wide recognition. . In 2019, she was named one of Idaho's Accomplished Under 40 and in 2021 she was named as an Idaho CEO of Influence.   Red Aspen was ranked number 6 in the country for the Direct Selling University’s 2022 Industry awards. 
     
    Jesse, Trevor, Spencer and Jack live and work in Boise, Idaho
     
    Join me as I sit down with Jesse and talk about her story.   You are going to love it!

    Gary Montalvo and Dawn Speaks Mindset Magic

    Gary Montalvo and Dawn Speaks Mindset Magic

    Gary Montalvo and Dawn Speaks are a dynamic business duo at a company called LimeLife by Alcone. Gary is the Chief Growth Officer and Dawn is the Regional Director. They first came on my radar when I was at a Direct Selling University presentation. The MC was talking about how their messaging is so powerful that it’s spreading like wildfire across the industry. So of course, I had to bring them on my show so you could hear their stories for yourself! 
    One of the big things they focus on is mindset. So many people have a scarcity mindset about direct sales, with thoughts like, “I’m not one of ‘those’ people” or “I can’t handle rejection.” Gary and Dawn break down those barriers, believing if you give someone the right mindset, they’ll shoot like a rocket.
    During this talk, you’ll also gain insight on how to OWN that you’re a network marketer, to lead with what you’re afraid of, and above all else, get your butt to work! Gary and Dawn have embraced the opportunity side of network marketing, and after listening to this, you may just do the same.

Loloa12 ,

He speaks from the heart

This is my most favoritest podcast. I eagerly await each new episode. I check almost everyday to see if a new episode has been released. If everyone grew/ran/shared/taught their network marketing business the way Richard teaches, I think the anti-mlm folks would be hard pressed to come up with reasons to dislike this industry and those of us who LOVE it. Thank you, Richard!!! I am heading to Facebook now to watch my Daily Dose of Salt!!❤️❤️

Ben Sturtevant ,
