Glant and Zoe Lee
The Conquer vision could not be realized without the people that believe in it. Meet, Glant and Zoe Lee! Certified Artist Developers that love and believe in Conquer Entertainment. They are among a handful of supporting CADs that keep the dream alive. From speaking to up and coming CADs at the recent NYC CAD training to conquering Main Stage at the Market America World Conference this year, this couple shows no signs of slowing down. Check out this recent interview with the Lee’s and see why they GetConquer!
1. How long have you been involved with Market America and how did it come about?
Zoe: About 4 years ago, I went back to Taiwan to visit my mom. My uncle (Mom’s sponsor) called me a week before my return to New York. I was very skeptical in the beginning, being a business owner for over 13 years, I had no interest in something that sounded like a MLM! However I was also curious at the same time, considering my uncle’s background (veteran, speaker & buddhist monk); and my mom’s (successful business woman & the most integrity & realistic person I ever know), what did they see in this business worth being involved in “one of those things?”
My uncle showed me the plan, I had to work very hard to hold my impatience & arrogance in the beginning. Then my uncle flipped to the page of “partner stores”, I was so amazed by all the famous brands & stores, I guess my eyeballs must’ve turned into dollar signs immediately. I started to pay attention to the MPCP. All of a sudden I remembered my dream as a little girl – everyone doing what they love and helping each other, enjoying power, freedom & creating the dream together!! At that moment, I knew I found the answer I’d been searching for almost my whole life, this is something I can do with everyone and forever, it will make my vision & dreams come true, and it can resolve all challenges I had in my business even when I was successful. I closed all my businesses & started right away.
Glant: I was very uncomfortable & stressed in the beginning. Zoe has always been very driven & strong when it comes to things she wants to do. She closed all her businesses & income streams and invested a lot on business & education. She forced me to do lots of things I didn’t understand, spent more time in Taiwan than with me, even when she was back, we were always on the road & hardly home. Family & friends started to doubt our decisions & relationship. It was just too much to a point that she said “Please don’t make me choose, I don’t want to give up the business because it’s my dream & belief.”
So I finally went to convention with her and I was blown away! The platform was far beyond from what I imagined. JR, the corporate team & field leaders inspired & moved me so deeply that I decided to fully come on board. Later, I lost 35 lbs & found my passion with TLS & Conquer. I love that we can be successful by helping others get what they want.
2. When did you join Conquer Entertainment?
Zoe: We attended CAD training 2012 January in Miami but didn’t do much until we met our first artist, Jeneen Terrana in October.
3. What motivated you to become Certified Artist Developers?
Glant: As first generation immigrants here, we don’t have many resources, our team & senior partners are all in Taiwan. So when we heard about Conquer Entertainment®, it sounded like a great fit.
Zoe’s first business in college had a huge part in entertainment & concert tours in which she made lots of money, so we believed not only in the great potential, we also had some experience & knowledge to accomplish something huge & meaningful.
Zoe: Glant never thought he’d have an opportunity to work with artists but had always thought it will be cool and exciting if he could. It all made total sense when Conquer was presented.
Conquer has everything we need readily available such as technology, services, tools, a working plan and most importantly, support. Conquer is the only platform that allows ordinary people to support artists as they fulfill their talents & passions. We know so many amazing artists like Jeneen will benefit from Conquer. A unique business model like this is going to be successful with or without us. We just need to engage the system & enjoy the journey!! We are so grateful for the opportunity and committed to share Conquer with as many people as possible.
4. Tell us about some of the artists you have on the platform. What do you love about this artist?
Zoe: Jeneen Terrana is our girl! In the beginning we were just amazed by her voice, it is so beautiful and her music is so inspiring. She wants to make a difference with her music, and we are so moved by the messages she has in her lyrics.
The more we get to know her the more we adore her. She’s very humble and very easy to work with. We’ve gone through a lot together and have become really close friends with she and her husband. Their trust & love is the most important support to us when we were dealing with doubts & criticism.
Her recent performances include singing the national anthem at the 2013 Miami convention, Northeast Regional & Wisconsin Regional as well as some local seminars & Conquer showcases. We are so proud when she shines on stage.
5. Now a little about you, where are you both from?
Glant: We are both from Taiwan.
Being a new immigrant and in this country since 2000. I’ve always encouraged myself to do something different from what I did in Taiwan. As an engineer I have the opportunity to work in the transportation industry and do something with trains. I’ve always liked airplane, buses, boats and trains. My goal is to associate with the transportation equipment as a world traveler, an adventurer in the future. This is also my why for starting our own business with Market America.
Music, is also another area that I like to be associated with. It’s cool to be around artists and shows. It brings joy to me and my surroundings. Though I do not sing as good as a professional performer, I can support them through the Conquer platform.
Zoe: Most people in my life say I’m a natural entrepreneur and “the odd one”. I grew up in a business family. I made my first sale in kindergarten so I could buy myself some toys that my mom wouldn’t buy for me. I found it so profitable and continued to run a small booth through my school years. I started my first business when I was 18 doing marketing & event planning and made my first million dollars while still in college. In 2001, I came to the United States for my MBA, loved this land full of freedom & possibilities so much that I decided to stay. No matter what I always have my own business – physical or virtual. What pushes me is my mom’s love & training: there’s nothing you “can’t”, its only a matter of what you want and how far you’re willing to go. She’s my role model & foundation for who I am.
My life completely changed after I started the Market America business. In MA I’ve learned & worked to be a better person for people around me. I’ve also learned the beauty of each individual’s uniqueness, and how to work with them & bring out their best. I’m so thankful for the MA business not only for the money I make, but the person I’ve become, the relationships I’ve built. It shifts my world from stressful competition to blissful appreciation.
I love to spend time with my husband, exploring the new & unknown, as well as cooking & crafting. I also lead programs & coach people for personal & business development.
6. What kind of music do you like to listen to?
Glant: Pop, folk music that’s easy to listen to.
Zoe: I appreciate all kinds of music, I think it’s a self-expression for each creator and their uniqueness. I listen to different styles according to my mood or what I’m doing at the moment.
7. If you could share a few words with folks interested in joining but still not ready to take the leap, what would you say?
Glant: Come to the Conquer event, feel the power that the artists are delivering to you and the BV power that the artist is able to generate for the people. There is nothing like Conquer.
Zoe: Get on Conquer site and explore the artists/music we have. Listen & download some music you enjoy, and it will become natural for you to share with people.
Also, conversation with artists, get to know them and their music dreams. Don’t need to worry about doing anything, just get to know them first.
