Check Out Blake Roberts’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Blake Roberts. 

Hi Blake, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I was born in Dover, DE and grew up in Pennsylvania. My parents divorced shortly after I was born. My father remained in Delaware and my mother moved to Pennsylvania. I traveled over two hours every other weekend to see my father. I would not have changed my situation whatsoever. I am very thankful for both my parents and step-parents. They all made me the man I am today. I also thank god for all the blessing in my life. I ended up going back to Delaware to get my degree at Wesley College. There I got my B.S.N. with a minor in psychology. I also played NCAA football for Wesley college. I played on the offensive line and was a captain my senior year. We were one of the top DIII teams in the country. After graduating college, I moved to North Carolina for my first registered nurse position. I remained there for two years until I decided to travel nurse. While I was in North Carolina I started up my USANA business as a distributor of the best cellular nutrition products in the world. I grew up taking their products and believe in them. It has allowed me optimal health while being able to support myself financially. I chose Baltimore as my first travel nurse assignment. This has given me the financial freedom to make investments in my current business as well as real estate and crypto investments. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I think as a young child I questioned why my parents had divorced. Having to travel over two hours just to see one of my parents was not easy. I am thankful that both of my parents remained committed to raising me with both of their involvement. My first job out of college was in North Carolina and I made the difficult decision to move away from all of my family. That was quite an adjustment as I knew no one there and was between seven and nine hours away from my family. Lastly, being an entrepreneur has its ups and downs. It takes a lot of work and a lot of people quit over failures or the struggle to build a business from the ground up. I have always been one to support people that I know that have their own businesses. I would rather support them over big corporations. It is sometimes not easy having friends or family deny your products, your business, your ideas, etc. but it’s important to understand you can only control the decisions you make. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
So currently I am a traveling medical/surgical nurse. Typically, we have assignment lengths of three months to six months. I signed a six-month contract with a hospital in the Baltimore area. I have always been a medical/surgical nurse since I had my first job out of college. I have worked on many units including dialysis, burns, rehab, orthopedics, pulmonology, and many more. I also have some side hustles like my USANA business and other investments that I am excited to dive into more. I think what sets me apart from others is my drive. It may not be an easy road but I always find a way to come out on top. It may take a lot longer than I want but it is worth it in the end. Rome wasn’t built in a day so I have to look at it like that. I am also a very impressionable and outgoing person. I love to speak with people getting to know them and their story. It is amazing who you can meet through network marketing. 

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
The most important lesson I have learned is to trust the process. We are in a society now that loves instant gratification. I tell you being in the healthcare field and being an entrepreneur that rarely ever happens. You have to embrace the negativity, the time, and the work it takes to achieve positive patient outcomes as well as positive results in your businesses. The results you want are the direct reflection of the time and effort you put into it. This can really be used for anything in your life like your career, your health, you family, etc.
