You might have remembered some major recognition at this year’s virtual .comvention as we awarded some of our New U Life family for their hard work and contributions. If you didn’t see .comvention, you can rewatch all the sessions here.
This year, New U Life recognized two very special individuals for the International Chairman Award, Ambr and Dean De Grasse. This award was given to the De Grasse’s for their amazing contributions to international growth by affecting multiple international markets. Other criteria for the award included having top international growth, top income generated from international markets, and top production of diamonds in their team.
We had a chat with the De Grasse’s about their personal business experience leading up to receiving this award. See what it took for them in just a couple years to reach their goals internationally.
