Stream Energy has made waves throughout the energy industry as one of the first companies that can offer rural and out-of-the-way residents the opportunity to elect to consume green energy. The company, which is the first multi-level distributor of energy in the United States, has proven over the last 15 years that people will often choose clean forms of energy, even if it means they have to use a little less.
Prior to the inception of Stream Energy, many consumers simply had no choice as to where their energy was generated and how. With the company’s highly innovate distribution network, Stream Energy is able to offer virtually anyone in the seven states where it currently operates the chance to use 100 percent clean-technology energy. The sources may include solar, wind and hydroelectric power, allowing customers to cut back of Earth-poisoning power sources, like coal.
It is these revolutionary breakthroughs in the energy industry that have given Stream Energy nationwide recognition. But throughout the Dallas, Texas, area, the company is known for another kind of change-inducing activity. Throughout the company’s hometown, Stream Energy has gained attention for its many acts of charity. The company has been a crucial supporter of a local charity called Hope Supplies Co. This charity helps homeless children get the school supplies, food and toys that they need to have as relatively normal a childhood as possible.
Stream Energy began underwriting special trips for the charity’s kids. Every week in the summer, Stream funds trips to local amusement parks, water parks and other entertainment venues for the city’s most vulnerable children. For many of these kids, the trips are the first time in their lives that they have been able to enjoy an afternoon of fun at a commercial theme park.
Stream has also been heavily involved in disaster relief in Dallas and around the state of Texas. After a 2016 outbreak of severe, tornado-producing thunderstorms, Stream raised over $100,000 for residents of a town that had been flattened by tornadoes. Stream employees also donated thousands of hours of their own time in helping Houston-area residents recover in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Jeunesse Global has proven to be one of the most successful health and beauty companies to come along in the last decade. Founded by two of the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the health and beauty industry, Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, the company came storming out of the gates in 2009. Within its first year of operations, it was clear that Jeunesse Global was going big places.
Ray and Lewis had founded the company as a means to pass the time during their third try at retiring. The idle hours and lack of daily purpose soon began eating at the industrious couple, who had spent their entire careers building many successful businesses. Before long, they found themselves selling a few products out of their beautiful Florida mansion. Soon, the couple’s entrepreneurial instincts began taking over, and they found themselves dedicating more time to the building of Jeunesse. By the end of 2009, running the business had become a full-time job.
Between Ray’s ability to recruit and sell and Lewis’ skills with product development and management, Jeunesse Global began taking off like a rocket. By its fifth year of existence, the company had thousands of distributors and was selling millions of dollars in products each year. The key factor behind the company’s success has been its ability to sell its business plan and its ability to fill market niches with products that people need and desire.
One example of the company’s innovative approach to product development can be seen in its Nevo energy drink. At first glance, Nevo looks very similar to other competing brands. However, Nevo uses almost completely natural ingredients. The drink contains real fruit juices as well as green tea, guarana and yerba mate. It comes in four natural flavors. These include peach mango, lemon ginger, mixed berry and acai grape.
Nevo has proven to be one of the company’s most popular products, selling millions of units each year. It has been particularly sought-after by customers in regions where people are conscientious about avoiding too many synthetic or over-processed foods. This has been especially true in the company’s East Asian markets, where the drink has been flying off the shelves of distributors.
