Jarrad Abshire wasn’t always a savvy and financially successful entrepreneur. He started his career as a high school band director. After two years in this position, he realized that he was facing a future of working 30 to 40 years and then retiring on 40% of the income he had been accustomed to making. Realizing this, he started looking for another way to create supplemental income. He tried several “part-time” opportunities with some success, but when he met his sponsor in 2009, everything changed. He asked her what she did for a living, and she invited him to the next business presentation.
While working a few years in Ambit on a part time basis, he was able to completely replace his income from teaching and retire. Now, with more than a decade of experience in the industry, Jarrad is a Top 50 Income Earner and has won Ambit’s Pure Energy award. He has now created a lifelong passive income that has surpassed what he would have earned in retirement from teaching.
He and his wife Amie are now stay at home parents and entrepreneurs with their two children.
He now teaches others the benefits of entrepreneurship and how they can create an additional stream of income.
