DALLAS, July 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Le-Vel Brands, LLC, the world leader in human nutritional innovation, is among five companies in an exclusive supplement in today's edition of USA Today. Titled "YouEconomy," this special feature shines light on an increasingly common trend in the American workplace, driven by the continued evolution of technology that empowers us to work wherever we want, free from the confines of a traditional office environment. Approximately one-third of U.S. adults have earned income within the YouEconomy during the last 12 months, according to a May 2016 survey commissioned by SUCCESS and conducted online by Harris Poll among more than 2,000 adults. By 2020, it's expected that more than 50 percent of U.S. households – or 127 million Americans – will have earned income in the YouEconomy. Disruptive brands like Le-Vel are leading the pack, fueling a global movement that puts control into the hands of the individual. Office politics, rigid schedules and time-sucking commutes are out; flexibility and self-determined advancement are in.
Le-Vel charted a new course in the direct selling industry four years ago when Co-Founders, Co-Owners and Co-CEOs Jason Camper and Paul Gravette set out to create a company, a brand and a product line unlike any other in the direct selling space through several marked points of difference. As the direct selling industry's first completely virtual company, Le-Vel operates at a considerably lower overhead than its competitors while also providing its independent sales force with efficient and agile virtual tools and a back office that can fully support an individual's business needs and goals. The significant savings produced by its cloud-based infrastructure and virtual base of operations have been channeled into superior, effective product ingredients and a rich rewards plan – among the most generous in the direct selling industry -- for the company's sales force of 600,000 independent Brand Promoters.
"We credit our success to several factors: our products, which are giving millions of customers a quality of life they've never had before; the powerful testimonials people are sharing about our products; our strong and supportive culture; and the fact that our business opportunity offers a simple, effective route to professional and personal achievement," says Camper. "So many Le-Vel Brand Promoters have been able to make their business their full-time calling, and many others have enjoyed being a part of the experience and community while continuing with their day jobs and full-time commitments. They're living better lives, and they're driven to help others live better lives."
Known for its progressive, tight-knit culture and fiercely loyal customer base, Le-Vel generated an astounding 254 percent growth in 2015, a distinction that earned the company the prestigious Direct Selling News 2016 Bravo Growth Award. In just four years, Le-Vel has attracted a customer base of more than 4 million and an independent sales force exceeding 600,000. The company has customers in the U.S., UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, with additional international expansion on the immediate horizon, and expects to close out 2016 with more than $500 million in global revenues.
"Le-Vel is really representative of a voice we've been hearing throughout the country over the years, and it's getting louder," says Gravette. "People don't want to wait for their ship to come in, so to speak. They want to take their futures into their own hands and create financial, professional and personal success on their own terms, on their own schedules. Our company was built to give millions of people that unprecedented opportunity, along with a community of support and encouragement. People also want to be part of something larger than themselves. With Le-Vel, you only succeed if you're helping others, and we also maintain a strong commitment to working with our Brand Promoters to support philanthropic causes. When you can build a successful business that gives you this kind of personal development and a connection to people throughout the world who are on the same journey, the benefits spill over into all areas of your life. It's not work anymore – it's something that energizes and motivates you."
Founded in 2012 by Jason Camper and Paul Gravette, Le-Vel formulates and sells nutritional/health and wellness products and is the only health and wellness company that uses cloud-based technology for its day-to-day operations. Le-Vel's cloud-based infrastructure enables the company to keep overhead to a minimum while increasing commissions to its Promoters and putting more money into the Thrive product line. Le-Vel products include DFT, Thrive Premium Lifestyle Capsules, THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Mix, THRIVE Kids, Activate, Boost, Balance, Black Label, FORM, Move and Rest. Le-Vel has over 4.5 million Customer and Promoter accounts, currently ships within the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom and is looking to surpass $500 million in annual revenue in 2016.
