As the Founder of Novae, Reco McCambry has made his mark in the financial services industry and direct sales as one of the youngest and most successful entrepreneurs in the space. After getting involved in the industry in 2001, at 20 years old, it seemed he was born to do this. While in college full-time, majoring in Physics and Engineering, he was also working a full-time job. Upon seeing that his job was keeping him from accomplishing many of his personal goals, he started working very diligently on his part time business. After his first year, his part-time income exceeded his full-time income and positioned him to pursue his dreams full-time. Within the next few years he was able to pay off debts, dramatically change his lifestyle, and achieve many personal goals.
Mr. McCambry has coached and mentored thousands of people nationwide and built personal organizations exceeding tens of thousands of independent representatives producing annual revenues of several million dollars. These accomplishments allowed him to become financially free in his mid 20s and eventually start his first Direct Sales company in 2009.
Also a best-selling author, Reco wrote an autobiography chronicling his life story, called The Fatherless Father that empowers single mothers, fathers, and fatherless teenagers and young adults to reach their full potential in life. Something he knows all too well, being raised by a single mother himself.
Despite very humble beginnings, Mr. McCambry is as well accomplished and highly respected as any Direct Sales professional in history. In January of 2016, he ranked in the top 10% of over 550+ Direct Sales CEOs nominated worldwide by Businessfromhome.org. This list placed him in front of many leaders of great companies that have done billions of dollars in revenue and been in business for decades.
As a talented speaker, he is frequently tapped by corporations, non-profits, youth programs, faith-based organizations and educational institutions to share the keys of his successful entrepreneurial endeavors. He offers audiences a candid peek into his personal experiences and provides motivation and encouragement to inspire positive life changes and success. He has been featured multiple times as one of the youngest success stories in the annual publication of "Who's Who in Black Atlanta", a publication highlighting some of the most accomplished African Americans in Atlanta, GA. Mr. McCambry is also on the Leadership Council for the National Small Business Association (NSBA) out of Washington D.C., which advocates on Capitol Hill for small businesses nationwide.
