Building Meaningful Lives

Kendra: Hello and welcome to this episode of the Founder’s Table. It’s Kendra and Jerry here and we are in Los Angeles currently and we just got through with our first two days of being at this business conference that we go to every year called the Milken Global Conference.

The Milken Institute is a not-for-profit nonpartisan enterprise and they’re working to increase global prosperity by advancing collaborative solutions that widen access to capital, that create jobs, and improve health.

DSN Magazine | NeoLife International: A Leadership Transition That Became a Family Affair

jerryArticle published in DSN Magazine | What do you do when you’re ready to find the next leader and CEO of the global, multimillion-dollar company you’ve created and the solution seems elusive? That was NeoLife International Founder and Chairman of the Board Jerry Brassfield’s dilemma seven years ago when he turned 70. First he tried two individuals already connected to the company. Next, he hired a professional business manager with impeccable credentials. No dice. He even thought his son would be the ideal candidate, but he was already successful and wasn’t interested.

Then he asked his daughter Kendra to accompany him on a trip around the world to get to know the company, and a surprising thing happened—although neither of them ever thought she would be interested in the job, Kendra turned out to be the perfect choice to take over from her father.Read More

Founder’s Table: Defining Your ‘Why’ & Reaching Your Goals

A transcription of Episode 2 of the Founder’s Table
with Jerry & Kendra Brassfield

Kendra: Thank you Jerry for joining us for another episode of The Founder’s Table. On the last episode we talked about your story and you shared with us some really great insight into your past, how you got started in the business, and now I’m excited to move from past to present.

So we’ll be covering a lot of the most relevant and important subjects that face entrepreneurs today. Let’s get started with talking about the big picture. We know that if we have big goals we have to know how to get there and have to be motivated to get there. You’ve always reinforced the power of having a strong but clear and concise why – “why are you in this business in the first place?” Can you please speak to that?Read More

Acquiring Education Crucial for Success

JerryHow the quality, relevancy and validation of education effects you.

In today’s world, access to education is more abundant than it has ever been. In 2010, Google announced that there are 129,864,880 books published in the world. The internet has opened up the floodgates to an era of free knowledge made easy, where with just a tap of a finger we can gain access to more hours of content than we have hours left to live. At the same time that I enjoy the benefits of this easy-access education, I firmly believe that the way in which we acquire it and the types of education we seek out will significantly shape our success. I would like to take a moment to address this in order to illustrate how to weed out the trash that will negatively impact a person’s future and, more importantly, how we can all gain the knowledge to achieve more than we ever thought possible.

jerry_and_kendra2016Dear NeoLife Family,

For the last few years I’ve been working to put the team in place that will lead us into the next 60+ years of success. A key component to the completion of this plan has been to find the right person to succeed me as CEO. I’ve learned over the years that this person is critical to the long-term success of the organization. He/she would need to have a unique combination of intelligence, discernment, passion, conviction, drive, gut instinct, as well as a certain level of fearlessness to rise to the occasion. My daughter Kendra has proven to be the right leader for this position.Read More

Founder’s Message: The Life and Principle of Passion

JerryAnd the Pursuit of Extraordinary Achievement

In the all-time best selling book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote “desire is the starting point of all achievement”. I think this is absolutely true. I also think that everyone who has lived a life of extraordinary achievement has experienced failure and been stronger as a result. But what is it that allows us to persevere when those failures seem insurmountable?Read More

The Power of Belief

Harnessing our potential for success and living a life of impact.

One of my greatest joys in life is to travel around the world and spend quality time with members of the NeoLife family. I love getting to know people, learning about their cultures, and experiencing life with people who share our passion for making the world a healthier and happier place. I would like to take this opportunity to share what has become increasingly evident to me as a core truth about success and living a life that makes a difference in the lives of others. Something that I have witnessed to be true no matter what country we are from, or upbringing we had. Read More

Harness Your Potential

JerryOne of the things I love about this business is the fact that no matter where we started or where we currently are in our lives, it is never too late to go after our dreams and grow into the people we want to be – the people we were destined to become.

Who we are as individuals can basically be summed up into 3 main parts- mind, body, and spirit and these three areas can undergo major improvements when we are intentional about working on them.Read More

He founded GNLD, a global health and wellness company, parent company to NeoLife, as well as other successful ventures including auto dealerships, restaurant chains, and real estate.

This seems to be a challenge that many of us face as responsibilities compound in our daily lives, and I am not exempt facing struggles of this nature in my own life. But one thing I have realized is that focus is the key to a balanced life.Read More
