Jack Bastide, entrepreneur, copywriter and network marketing expert, was raised on the tough streets of Brooklyn, New York. Even as a child, he knew that he was not meant to work for someone else, and at age five, had his own business selling painted sea shells at the beach. His business adventures continued while he was in college, where he placed video game machines in grocery stores, splitting the profits with the store owners. Later, he bought his own grocery store, so he could keep all the profits.
After college, Jack went into computer programming but always knew he would own his own business. The first time he got laid off from corporate America he looked for another job for a couple of weeks and then decided this was an opportunity to go out on his own.
He purchased a potato chip business on borrowed money, paid back the lenders and then sold the business at a profit 2 years later. About this time he found out about Network Marketing. He did network marketing part time over the next ten years, while going back into the computer field and also investing and losing thousands of dollars in different business ventures.
Forced to sell both his houses in New York City and move to Florida where the cost of living was cheaper, he tried several business ventures without success and lost a lot of money in real estate. Finally, in 2006 he decided to get serious about network marketing and in less than six months he was earning a full time income from home with his current network marketing company.
Jack was actually one of the pioneers of building a Network Marketing company on the Internet. While his uplines were telling him you had to do hotel meetings and one-on-ones, Jack was able to develop relationships and sponsor hundreds of people that he met on the Internet. He is growing his current business so large that he plans on it lasting a lifetime.
Jack currently lives in Kissimmee, Florida & a stones throw from Disney World. He is also an author, with two books coming out soon, as well as a public speaker. He enjoys playing guitar, singing, and the beach.
