WakeUpNow was founded with the vision of helping people save, manage, and make money. Kirby Cochran, Jason Elrod, and Phil Polich have been business partners for years; but in WakeUpNow, they saw an opportunity to create something unique. From the beginning, they were determined to change the industry with two profound goals: 1) offer products with outstanding value for the money, and 2) offer distributors a real chance to change their lives.
This WakeUpNow leadership team brings decades of business experience to an industry that is typically led by former network marketers?not management executives. This team has led WakeUpNow to record growth, changing both the rules for network marketing and the lives of its customers.
Jason brings a unique business perspective. Early on, he quickly saw that network marketing was evolving and that WakeUpNow had an opportunity to take the lead in that transformation. He knew that the company would only be as good as the people distributing its products and services. Jason champions the cause of making WakeUpNow a new standard in the networking marketing industry. Traveling the country, Jason has heard hundreds of stories from career network marketers who are hungry for a better way. These realities are what drive WakeUpNow?s passion for creating a different kind of network marketing experience.
