Bravenly operates within the dietary complement MLM area of interest. The corporate is predicated out of Florida within the US.
Heading up Bravenly International are co-founders Aspen and Brent Emry.
Aspen Emry serves as Bravenly International’s CEO. Her husband Brent is Chief Working Officer.
Bravenly International launched in 2020. That very same 12 months BehindMLM reviewed Emris Worldwide, of which Aspen Emry was co-founder and CEO of.
Emris Worldwide launched in 2019. It too was a dietary complement MLM firm, specializing in weight reduction and CBD oil.
Previous to founding Emris Worldwide, Emry was an It Works! distributor.
At time of publication Emris Worldwide nonetheless has a web site up. Matthew and Ilean Harris nonetheless run the corporate, but it surely’s vastly completely different to what launched in 2019.
Emris Worldwide now markets Momentum Enterprise Academy. The corporate represents it’s primarily based out of South Africa, and that appears to be its goal advertising and marketing demographic.
I went on the lookout for a motive why Emry left Emris Worldwide. I couldn’t discover one, or a selected date she left.
The perfect I used to be in a position to do was slender it all the way down to the someday within the final 4 months of 2020:
Bravenly International formally launched on December eighth. It was in prelaunch earlier than then way back to October 2020. That additional narrows when Emry left a bit.
I discovered an official press-release incorrectly stating Bravenly International launched in Feb 2021:
Undecided what that’s about.
In the end why Emry left Emris Worldwide stays unclear. And, so far as I do know, this hasn’t been publicly addressed.

Bravenly International Conclusion
I’m guessing Bravenly International happened as “courageous” is a recurring theme on Emry’s social media:
She even wrote a e book final 12 months titled “Chase Your Courageous”. All that’s high quality however… I, and that is solely subjective, don’t just like the identify “Bravenly”. It looks like a misspelling of “bravely” and, intentional or not, that’s all I see.
I do know there’s additionally “braven” and “bravely”, each adjectives. Turning them into nouns doesn’t work.
Sadly International, Fortunately International, Angrily International, Hungrily International, Noblely International … none of those look or sound correct to me – all for a similar motive.
If language isn’t a robust level of yours (truthful play if it isn’t), this in all probability gained’t bug you. It appears to be like bizarre to me although so I’m mentioning right here.
Transferring on, Bravely International’s product line-up is way extra carefully aligned with what Emris Worldwide initially launched with. Notably, the slimming tea and CBD choices are gone.
I’m tempted to say there might need been product distribution issues between the US and South Africa, therefore Emris Worldwide dropping dietary supplements and shifting focus.
Or it could possibly be a easy disagreement between Emry and the Harris’.
Both approach, Bravenly International is basically a continuation of Emris Worldwide, with the present iteration of Emris Worldwide being a distinct firm.
Weight administration is on the centre of the product line up, and that tracks with it being one thing Emry herself is captivated with:
As to the product themselves, nothing significantly stood out as a showstopper. And there’s appreciable overlap between the merchandise (what number of urge for food suppressants does one want?).
Contemplating weight reduction and basic well being dietary supplements are available, positively do a price comparability earlier than leaping into something.
To their credit score Bravenly International stand by their merchandise, with a fairly beneficiant satisfaction assure on supply:
When you want to return your product, we gladly supply a 45-day, satisfaction assure to all Model Companion, Retail Prospects, and Ambassadors. Bravenly International should have the return bodily in possession by day 45 for the satisfaction assure.
If a Model Companion, Retail Buyer, or Ambassador is dissatisfied with any product, you could return the merchandise in its unique packaging, together with the unique bill, to Bravenly International inside 45 days of the acquisition for a 90% refund of the acquisition value minus transport.
The Particular person is chargeable for the price of return freight.
One thing else Emry is captivated with is her religion
BRAVENLY… To hold your self with power and braveness. Main others in equity and fact in a approach that respects God. Residing truthfully and honorably.
To stay life Bravenly, means studying to discern the guts of an individual by listening to them and passionately pursuing your objective.
Bravenly’s Founders have a coronary heart for individuals, household, and serving that facilities round their sturdy religion and their dedication to excellence in all that they do.
Bravenly’s CEO and co-founder, Aspen Emry, began her journey in community advertising and marketing 15 years in the past with no expertise, 3 little children at house, and a God-sized dream in her coronary heart.
Consider what you wish to imagine however I’m a agency believer of faith having no place in enterprise. In MLM it particularly lends itself to exploitation, favoritism and exclusion.
I didn’t see something in Bravenly International that overtly prompt that was happening, however why run the chance? You may be personally spiritual, shout it from the rooftops when you should, however you don’t must wrap what you are promoting in faith too.
Until that’s what you’re going for, which is a very completely different dialog.
Transferring onto Bravenly International’s compensation plan, I used to be happy to see a 51% retail quantity requirement… till I noticed it included Ambassador quantity.
51% of your 100 PQV every month should come out of your prospects (Retail or Ambassadors).
I’m in two minds about how Bravenly International has applied its Ambassador program. I get that it’s geared toward individuals not excited by MLM, however with that in thoughts I feel it then shouldn’t be baked into the MLM alternative.
Maintain Ambassador and retail buyer quantity separate, as they’re positively not the identical buyer class.
Retail prospects buy merchandise due to the merchandise. Ambassadors, like distributors, can too – however with entry to an revenue alternative intent behind the acquisition can change into blurred.
That’s the place retail quantity necessities, like Bravenly International has tried to implement, are available.
One fast test I’d run towards any potential Bravenly International upline is how a lot of their required 100 PV minimal a month is precise retail quantity. Simply ask them in the event that they’ve obtained any Ambassadors.
I’m making an enormous deal about this as a result of if somebody is seeking to promote the enterprise alternative over retail, it’s going to be simpler to promote individuals on an Ambassadorship than Bravenly International’s precise merchandise.
Outdoors of MLM that is high quality. Once you’re prioritizing the enterprise alternative over retail in MLM, that’s when compliance issues come up.
One factor I hadn’t seen earlier than was Bravenly International’s beneficiant product credit score. Retail prospects can earn as much as $250 in product credit score in the event that they keep an autoship order for 12 months.
The credit score is calculated pro-rata quarterly. And it is a nice incentive to drive retail autoship.
Sadly it additionally applies to Ambassadors, so the above caveats about enterprise focus apply.
Past that you simply’re a four-level deep unilevel, with nearly all of compensation paid out in bonuses. Rank qualification was on the lighter aspect to start with. Then it dramatically escalates from 24,000 to 120,000 GV a month throughout Vice President and Government Vice President.
There may be some room for Bravenly International to easy out these jumps. Then again when you’re dedicated sufficient to achieve Vice President, it’s doubtlessly a great incentive to actually construct what you are promoting out.
Based mostly on their very own 2021 Revenue Disclosure Assertion, 97.79% of fee certified associates are in ranks beneath Vice President. With that in thoughts the GV bounce doesn’t appear too misplaced.
All in all there are not any overt purple flags with Bravenly International’s MLM enterprise alternative. It’s a stable continuation of what Aspen Emry began with Emris Worldwide, and he or she’s introduced her husband alongside for the experience.
