From Skeptic to Believer

Jane Bell, Executive Consultant

Jane Bell Headshot

Jane Bell’s story starts in Leningrad. After completing her primary education, she felt the urge to study English. She came to Vermont at the age of 18 and spent six months learning the language, then returned home to Russia.

And quickly discovered she missed America. A lot.

So much that four months later she moved to Chicago and got a job as a nanny. Jane was soon joined by her mother.  From there, Jane moved on to a job with a car rental company and went to college where she studied computer programming, then worked at a staffing company. “I found I really enjoyed ‘connecting’ people,” she says—little did she know her work was preparing her for Ambit success.

Overcoming Obstacles

In 2003, Jane was diagnosed with Multiple Scleroses. Drawing on inspiration stories from Curing the Incurable by Jackie Riggs, she started Success Media Group, an organization designed to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. She also started to hear stories about Ambit Energy. “About every six months or so a new Ambit Consultant would approach me,” she says. “I found it very annoying, to be honest.”

But one person just wouldn’t give up. “My business partner, Tom Jikomes, was very persistent. I decided to join, thinking that would keep him quiet. I was sure it was not going to work, and in one year I could cancel.”

But something happened. “First, I started to save money. Then I started to make money,” Jane explains.

And Jane was on her way to not only achieving her goals, but to helping others achieve the same goals.

Looking forward to Success

While Jane has achieved a lot, she hopes to do even more. “I want to treat this as a Million Dollar business,” she says. “I plan to travel to other states and to do weekly meetings.” She tells new Consultants “I wish I knew from the beginning that this business is not about me, it’s about my team, helping others to achieve the American dream.”

Thanks to her hard work and determination, Jane and a lot of other Consultants are doing just that.
