Consultant Leadership Spotlight

Our Consultants come from every background, from all walks of life, and from all over the country. Indeed, sometimes it seems the only things they have in common is their drive to succeed, their integrity, and their willingness to work hard to achieve their goals. By sharing some of their success stories, we hope to inspire others to achieve their full potential as part of the Ambit family and recognize their stellar achievements.

Connecting to a Dream of Financial Freedom

ECs Jay and Teresa Sanborn, Executive Consultant

An electricity disconnect notice made ECs Jay and Teresa Sanborn realize they needed to do something different. And they needed to do it fast. Although they both worked multiple jobs, Jay and Teresa had daily and monthly financial worries and no time to enjoy life. “Our why initially was Free Energy and making enough to pay off an outstanding utility balance,” Jay said. 

Their story starts the same as others. A great friend stopped by to show them something. “We did not know that the answer to our prayers had walked into our home that night,” Teresa said. With a large utility bill, a disconnection notice and a daughter graduating from high school, the couple saw Ambit as a no-brainer. They knew it was an opportunity they had to take. “He mentioned electricity savings and an opportunity to make money by helping others save on their utility bill.”

Joining the Ranks
“In the beginning, it was about qualifying for Free Energy, and hoping we would make a little money with this,” Jay said. Their rise to EC hasn’t been without its struggles though. They heard no so many times and realized they needed to look at things differently. “A no was not really a no, and we were just doing a service to allow as many people to take advantage of the Opportunity.”

The Link to Success
The Sanborns have achieved many accolades while working their Ambit business – recent Five-Star Trip winners, on the cover of Success from Home magazine, Pure Energy Award at AMBITION 2016 and Black Tie Dinner Event are just a few. With those experiences, they’ve learned a few things they’d pass on to newer Consultants. “While it may seem difficult at first, or slow to start, when it is growing and building to new levels, is where you will reap the exceptional reward,” Jay said. Their reward is in knowing what their future holds for them and others with Ambit. “We believe Ambit Energy has changed us as people, and our faith is stronger than before.” It’s that outlook that they know will propel them to even bigger things with Ambit.
