Experience always has got an upper hand over grades. The more experienced you are, the more knowledge you have about your work. Jean Paul Schoor has become a massive success in the entrepreneurial world, thanks to his mammoth experience in network marketing. He was born in the municipality of Neunkirchen Seelcheid in Germany and had no one to guide him into the business world. During his childhood, his family faced a lot of financial crises, which is why he started working at an early age.
In his early days, Jean loved playing soccer while he went to his elementary school in Neunkirchen Seelscheid. He then migrated to the Birk district in Lohmar at the age of 10. His childhood saw him being bullied a little more than the other children. It saw Jean not focusing on studies, and he was even rejected from playing football. Having no vision or hope, he started smoking and drinking in his teenage years. However, things took a drastic turn when his teacher helped him in following his passion.
Leaving all the bad habits aside, he concentrated on academics and got an apprenticeship as a vehicle mechatronics engineer. Soon he was shown the door at the training as he did not complete his vocational school. The desire to never give up always motivated Jean, and he finally got to train at Bosch Service in Siegburg. Schoor, during his training, understood that he was not meant to work under somebody. At the end of his apprenticeship, his uncle gave him a life lesson of working regularly and not thinking about weekends. It was his uncle who helped him find the purpose in Jean’s life.
At the age of 19, Jean got a diploma degree in mechanical engineering, and he also worked several jobs to earn his living and clear debts. He was keen to get into federal police, and he even passed all the exams. However, a ligament injury did not let his plan succeed. Having a wavering mind about his goal in life, Jean took a break after his injury. “When I did not understand how to deal with life problems, I took a break and traveled abroad to Thailand and Turkey, where I spent 6 months learning about other people and cultures,” he said. It was during the trip that he met different people and learned how to earn a 7-figure income.
While Jean was 22, he founded his own marketing company. Initially, the company failed to get clients in the first year. But then things changed for good as he started getting clients from all over Germany. The entrepreneur is the most successful network marketer today who has delivered speeches and interviews amid the audience of 35,000 people. Jean had his interview along with Eric Worre, who is one of the prominent network marketing trainers. As of today, Jean has got a team of 7000 sales partners from different nations like Canada, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, Holland and Thailand. The network marketer has one goal for the future: to build a network of one million people and become the numero uno in the business of network marketing.
