Robert Edwards and Lynda Perry: A Partnership for Success
More often, one needs a partner in doing business in order to achieve greater heights. Without that someone, handling businesses would be very difficult. It definitely helps to have a person beside in every business-related decision to make it much easier. It can be a longtime friend, a sibling, or even a husband or wife.
University of Manitoba alum Robert Edwards is one of the finest businessmen in the networking industry. Through his Our World Network, he was able to sell his products to consumers at an affordable cost which enabled the people to benefit from the food products offered. Edwards’ rise to prominence in industry would not be possible if not for his wife, Lynda Perry.
Robert Edwards was doing business on his own after he returned from Australia. In Australia, he worked in the construction and home improvement sales industry where he learned the method of person-to-person sales. In one of the projects for his company RTE Holdings, Ltd. and Oceanside Realty, he met Perry. Edward’s future wife was working on the real estate and development sales industry when the two met.
Ever since the two got married, it was already viewed as a partnership for success. With both being the business industry, no one doubted that the couple would not be very successful as husband and wife as well as business partners.
In 1994, Robert Edwards and Lynda Perry founded Networking Alliance for Today’s Opportunities or NATO. This company sells lubricants for automobile engines which are sold as oil and fuel additives. The products provided the people with fuel efficiency, reduction in operating temperatures and perceived reduction in emissions. NATO was able to provide Edwards and Perry with total sales of over $100 million and enjoyed success for more than half decade. The company was sold in 2001.
Three years after letting go of their first company co-founded, Edwards and Perry again co-founded another networking company, the OWN. Unlike their previous company, this business is focused on the long time interest of Edwards and even Perry. With Edwards having a background in science and health, OWN sold products that promote good health through therapeutic formulations. A few years later, the company began selling YouthJuice products that helps in the improvement of one’s health. Perry has long been an advocate of different charities that’s why he came up with the idea of donating half of the sales of YouthJuice products to charities.
Edwards and Perry do not help people earn income through their networking business but also helps those children in need.
