Jean-Pierre and Régine Desroses are a Parisian couple who lead a sizable network marketing organization spread out over France, Belgium, the Antilles, and the United States. Régine was working as a midwife and Jean-Pierre was finishing his medical degree when they each stumbled upon the same network marketing company. They both started building a business and met each other two years later. They got married and have been each other's rock in business and in life ever since. Some of the challenges network marketers encounter in France are of a different order of magnitude than most of their American counterparts can even begin to imagine. "To be an entrepreneur in France is like being a rhino in the jungle," says Jean-Pierre. "You just have to develop thick skin and keep charging ahead."
