Brandon, FL, April 17, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Talk Fusion is proud to announce that celebrated entrepreneur and relationship marketing trailblazer Cedric Penn has joined its global team of Associates. A 19-year veteran of the industry, Cedric gained prominence as a top distributor and seven-figure earner who has changed countless lives with his riveting story of triumph in the face of adversity.
Born the youngest of eight children to hard-working parents in Brownsville, Pennsylvania, Cedric discovered his athletic ability at a young age. This gift eventually led to him playing both football and baseball on a scholarship to Purdue University, before transferring to Western Kentucky and gaining the distinction of being an All-American athlete. Following college, Cedric expected to be an NFL draft pick, but was never given the opportunity. He struggled for years trying to make ends meet when he encountered relationship marketing for the first time.
“I was introduced at a gas pump,” says Cedric. “A man came up and asked me if I was keeping ‘options open about making money from home.’ He handed me a cassette and that was it.”
Adopting the teamwork mentality he had developed throughout his youth playing sports, Cedric built a large network of distributors who’d eventually help him earn over $1 million in his first three years.
As one of the industry’s fastest-rising stars, Cedric established the Diamond Network, an organization “founded on the principles of Faith, Family and Prosperity with the vision of presenting premier networking opportunities to the world.”
No stranger to adversity, Cedric would soon face the biggest challenge of his life. In December of 2008, while excelling as the top distributor at a health supplement company and enjoying his well-earned financial freedom, Cedric took his motorcycle out for a ride around his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Out of nowhere, a drunk driver struck him, hurling Cedric’s body and bike to the pavement. The damage to his body was catastrophic: a broken pelvis, two broken wrists, eight teeth knocked out, major facial trauma, and a right arm broken in 23 places. Beyond that, the emotional damage would last for years.
“I was depressed for a long time. It would take years before I could return to where I was,” said Cedric. “I tried to get back into [relationship marketing] a few times, but I really wasn’t prepared until now.”
Fully recovered with a sense of newfound focus, Cedric is ready to embark on a prosperous journey as a Talk Fusion Associate. He plans to expand the company’s domestic and international markets by sharing the life-changing potential of Talk Fusion’s Instant Pay Compensation Plan and innovative Video Communication Products.
“Cedric’s inspirational story and accomplishments are a perfect fit with us,” said Talk Fusion Founder & CEO Bob Reina. “He’s a great person who’s always exemplified our principles of servant leadership and shared success. There is no doubt in my mind that Cedric will be an integral part of Talk Fusion’s growth into a billion-dollar brand.”
