Jeunesse Global’s Luminesce continues to help customers glow with agelessness

Any time a company can go from a startup to competing with some of the top names in an industry, there is bound to be a harrowing tale behind it. But when a company goes from a garage-based hobby business to one of the leaders in a well-established, mature industry, with zero outside financial backing, you’re dealing with a truly once-in-a-generation success story.

Such is the case with worldwide health and beauty powerhouse Jeunesse Global. Founded in 2009 by a pair of Florida retirees who were simply looking for a way to add meaning and activity to their days, Jeunesse Global has rocketed into the stratosphere of the global health and beauty industry. The company, which literally saw its first headquarters located between the couple’s lawn tractor and gas can, has now become a company valued at more than $1 billion, with distributors in nearly every country on Earth and hundreds of millions of dollars in gross sales each year.

Although a story like this may sound like a Paul-Bunyonesque tall tale, it starts to make more sense when we consider that founders Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis were no ordinary retirees. The couple had spent their entire careers in the direct-selling business, founding and growing some of the most successful businesses in that sector. They had amassed a substantial fortune, earning enough money that they easily could have retired for life by their early 30s. And it turns out that the garage out of which they started Jeunesse Global was attached to a mansion of more than 10,000 square feet in an exclusive Florida neighborhood.

Still, the success of Jeunesse has dwarfed everything that even Ray and Lewis had ever accomplished. And most of that success has been due to the company’s great products. Luminesce, the company’s moisturizer and anti-aging skincare lotion is a good example.

Made with the company’s proprietary APT-200 molecule, Luminesce helps skin stay radiant and moist while providing one of the most potent punches against the stigmata of aging that is currently known to science. Luminesce can help erase as much as 10 years off a users’ appearance, helping them to look their best every day.

Rocketship Education is an Advocate for Underprivileged Youths

Rocketship Education began its origins in Silicon Valley more than 10 years ago. Since its inception it has become a nationally chartered network success. Its foundation is based on a blended learning model using laptops, personalized learning software, small group instruction, adaptive online learning, and teacher-inspired instructions.

John Danner was a Silicon Valley internet advertising entrepreneur, who with co-founder Preston Smith, who was a former elementary school principal has now established Rocketship educational institutions throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Nashville, Tennessee, Milwaukee and Washington, D.C. The large student population consists of low-income and Hispanic children who have outperformed state-sponsored students on their test scores.

The elementary students are called ‘Rocketeers,” whose parents also work with the school in a partnership to better their children’s educational experience. The Rocketship school/parent model designates parent leaders to become lifelong advocates for the children and their community. Rocketship parents are volunteers who hosts home visits, help to organize field trips or meetings with elected officials, and are volunteers in the classroom.

Rocketship Education believes in challenging the thought processes of underprivileged children noting that they are being prepared for a success path for middle school, high school, college and beyond. Rocketeers are introduced to computer labs, online math exercises, pen-and-paper assessments, wordand math pattern sounding pictures, and language arts classes are taught and displayed in classrooms and hallways. Rocketship educators say that science and social studies are also embedded into learning periods.

Rocketship Education funding proponents have included the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Obama administration, former tennis star Andre Agassi’s real estate fund and many other supporters. Rocketship uses an innovative learning approach that promises and has delivered a successful curriculum model through intensive online work. This archetype has helped disadvantaged children catch up quickly, and gain equality with their state-sponsored peers. Rocketship intends to close the national “achievement gap” and bridge a community gap by taking in the children of gang members whose enrollment has increased.
