Heading Up in a Down Economy

Arye Jacobs, Executive Consultant

Arye Jacobs Headshot

Arye Jacobs had already worked his way up the corporate ladder to become an administrator of an assisted living facility. And, in the process, he’d learned he’d rather be his own boss. After opening a pair of small businesses, he found himself without any time to spend with his wife or six children as he struggled to keep the two operations profitable. As he puts it, “the businesses owned me.”

When his rabbi introduced him to Ambit, he was immediately intrigued. “The opportunity made sense. Ambit would allow me to buy back my time, my life and my family.”

Before long, Arye shut down one of his businesses and focused more and more of his time on Ambit. Today, he sees it as a way to ensure his wife and he will be able to retire comfortably, and he had already recruited two of his sons as successful Ambit Consultants.

Making Headway In New Markets.
One of the secrets to Arye’s success is his aggressive seeking of new markets. For example, when he heard that Ambit was expanding into Illinois, he immediately hopped on a plane to visit a cousin in Chicago—the only person he knew in the whole state. Even though that relative had already turned him down once, Arye convinced him to sign with Ambit. “A year later, I have four Senior Consultants in Illinois and get paid on thousands of bills from that state alone.”

Like many Ambit Consultants, Arye is just as excited about what he’s able to do for others as what he does for himself. “The greatest satisfaction I get from Ambit Energy is that I help people make money by helping people save money. My best moment was a call from a Consultant telling me how Ambit allowed him to continue paying his mortgage and keep his home.”

Looking And Moving Ahead.
Arye continues to set high goals. He wants to be one of the first 50 members of the “Yellow Jacket” Millionaire Club, as well as working to inspire new Consultants with stories of his own struggles and successes.
His advice for new Consultants is simple. “Don’t let anyone steal your dream. Stay focused on your goals, and plug into the Ambit system.” He also recommends attending AMBITION whenever possible. “You get to pick the brains of our leaders and share experiences with other consultants. Where else in corporate America can you talk to the owners in person?”

He says “I am looking forward to attending AMBITION as I know those who attend will stop dreaming the American dream and start living it.”
