Blake Mallen was studying at the University of California, San Diego, when he had an epiphany. He had always worked hard in school and was making his way toward a law degree when he realized he was only on this path because others had told him it was the only way to make something of himself. He didn’t want to be a lawyer or follow the conventional career path. He finished a degree in political science in 2002 and then went into business for himself.
He had discovered direct marketing one day while still a college student. He worked for a telecommunications company, The Free Network, LLC, up through when they went out of business in 2005. Blake Mallen had built a large sales team and didn’t want to lose that so he co-founded his own direct sales company, ViSalus Sciences.
His company manufactures weight management nutritional products. These are now sold by independent distributors in the United States, Canada, Italy, and the United Kingdom. It has headquarters in both Los Angeles, CA, and Venice, Italy. The two best selling products are Vi Trim Clear Control Drink Mix and Vi Go Instant Energy.

Comment “yes” if you believe you can control your perception! 👇🏼 . Look it’s science…What we perceive is based on what we believe. What we believe is entirely based on references we collect. With enough references, we can create a belief about anything. So why not intentionally put ourselves in the places, where we are most likely to get the references we need, to create the beliefs we want! . Read that book you’ve heard about. Go to that seminar you’ve be told about. Find a model you can learn from. . Reality is amazing, you may just need to shift the way you perceive it. . You deserve it. . #BlakeMallen . . . #perception #science #believe #reality #shiftthescript #entrepreneur
