Jeff Roberti grew up as the oldest of three boys, and there were always more months than money. His father passed away shortly after his graduation from high school. This was an awakening moment for Roberti. He had witnessed his father always struggling and juggling to pay the bills. He sought out a path to live the American dream and become his own boss. With high school as his highest education and, lacking in experience and background, Roberti looked to his exceptional work ethic to fill out his qualifications. And, no matter what he did, he took pride in it and sought out to the best. He started out as a waiter.
Despite his work ethic, Roberti never found the right opportunity for him, always limited by some type of ceiling that forced him to trade dollars for hours. Roberti wanted to become an entrepreneur, earning what he is worth and becoming financially independent. But, he also wanted to make a difference in the world. So, Roberti took some steps from Zig Ziglar who said: To help enough people get what they want out of life, you’ll have everything you want out of life. And he feels when he got introduced to direct sales, it was his chance to do just that.
In January 1987, aged 24, he began to walk the network marketer’s path. He needed things to change in his life desperately. He showed up with his work ethic, his drive and his willingness to learn. And, after hearing stories of how others succeeded, he determined they were no better than he was. Through direct sales/network marketing, Roberti saw how average people could earn an above-average income if they were hungry and had an above-average desire. He saw a chance where he could start at the bottom and work his way to the top.
Jeff Roberti has made more than $100 million through hard work and determination. With such strong belief in giving back, he sought to support his family as soon as he received his first big pay check. He decided to surprise his mother by buying her a brand-new dream car for Christmas. JR places huge importance on giving back to others; aside from changing the lives of individuals, he also contributes to several different charities, including local animal shelters, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, American Cancer Society and American Heart Association. One such charitable project involved helping to build a new school for Fijian children. Roberti’s success story is now legendary within the network marketing/direct sales industry. He’s been recognized by “Business and Home” magazine as one of the highest earners in the history of the industry.
