Pitching For A Purpose

Meet Jamie Deignan of Ambit Energy

ambit

Almost every one of us uses electricity or natural gas on a daily basis. That’s why Consultants who start a business with Ambit Energy have a strong advantage over traditional network marketing opportunities. Simply by helping friends, family and new contacts save money every month on their energy bills, Ambit Consultants begin earning residual income immediately.

Jamie Deignan and her husband John are raising their five children in the Merrimack Valley. They are excited that their homeschooling will lead to five colleges of choice because of their Ambit business. They are excited to share the Ambit Opportunity with many others who have been trading time for money for decades. They see and have experienced incredible potential in Ambit's lucrative compensation plan. The financial benefits include monthly residual income, free gas and electric supply and large bonuses for saving a handful of family and friends some money. Beyond the financial gains, their Ambit Community has allowed them abundant life changing opportunities through connections with so many other business professionals who are open to additional streams of income on a part time business venture. 

Find out more from Jamie about the remarkable benefits that come from starting your own Ambit business.
