Jeunesse Global has emerged over the last decade as one of the most exciting and dynamic companies on the global health and beauty scene. The company was founded in 2009 by industry legends Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis out of the couple’s Florida garage. Over the last nine years, the company has grown to become one of the largest and most prominent brands in the health and beauty sector across the planet. And this success has been due, in large part, to the tenacity and skill of its founders.
Although Ray and Lewis are not household names, the couple is well known across the North American direct-selling industry. There, Ray and Lewis have plied their trade for decades, forming some of the most successful and innovative companies that the sector has ever seen. Millionaires by their mid-30s, Ray and Lewis continued to labor away long after they could have retired for the rest of their lives. The couple has never been interested much by the accumulation of more wealth. But Ray and Lewis have always possessed a burning passion for the creation of great products and great companies.
However, as the innately industrious duo approached their 70s, they decided that they wanted to try to enjoy some of the copious fruits of their labor. In August of 2009, they stepped back from running their business empire and took the plunge into the life of retirement. The couple wanted to spend more time with their grandchildren and with each other. But they soon found out that the realities of retirement weren’t as they are advertised on retirement home brochures. Ray and Lewis quickly grew terminally bored.
As a way to alleviate their boredom and get back into the fast-paced, exciting life of the business world that they so dearly missed, the couple began selling a few health and beauty products out of their garage. This is the business that would eventually grow into Jeunesse Global.
All along, it has been the company’s superlative products that have driven its success. Products like the company’s Zen Bodi weight-loss supplement have continued to prove that Jeunesse has what it takes to confront the industry’s big names on their own turf and win.
