Before Working With Our System!
So, you want to start your own business. GOOD ON YOU for taking the world into your own hands and deciding it’s time to start making a life and not just a living! Starting a business.
Have you done your research? Do you know how much it costs to start a brick and mortar business?
We have owned traditional businesses. Some did quite well and we left happy little campers. BUT we have also had business disasters where we lost a home, a car and every bit of savings we had stashed trying to keep it afloat. So, before you start a business here are a few factors to consider.
The average cost of starting a business is $30 000.00. That’s just to start!
Location, location, location…
A great business idea is only part of what makes a successful business. It’s the location that could make or break your success. How much foot traffic and what other businesses are within your locale greatly determines what direction your success can take. Higher foot traffic=higher sales=higher cost per sq. ft for rent. So, if your location is near a grocery store or a higher end brand store like Starbucks, you can usually expect to pay more. Don’t forget the cost of building maintenance, parking, common area keeping etc. can add up very quickly, so be aware of additional costs when considering entering into an agreement. (Don’t forget property taxes, utilities, property insurance and penalties associated if you break your lease. Sometimes that can enter into the thousands.)
Cushman & Wakefield released its 2015/2016 ‘Main Streets Across The World‘ study. Yes, these cover the high end streets of the world, but it gives you an idea of the costs some companies will endure for prime retail locations in North America.
So, whether you are a global tycoon or a mom ‘n pop shop the costs for retail space on a lesser known street all the way up to the hotshot spots can be anywhere from $7/sq ft to $3500/sq ft. The equation for how much it would cost to rent retail space is
[Total Square Feet x Price per Sq Ft. ÷ 12 (months) = Monthly Rent] So, if you are renting a 2000 sq foot space at $10 per sq ft/12 months you will be paying $1600 per month on rent (plus other costs you need to negotiate ie. common area, taxes etc) and you still need to pay for utilities.
WAIT!! I HAVEN’T ORDERED STOCK YET NOT HAVE I HIRED ANY EMPLOYEES!
No, I’m not trying to be a Debbie Downer…but remember the world doesn’t give you an instruction manual on how to make a business successful and the risk can be life changing.
Franchises are businesses already thought out for you. The company has an effective plan in place to get you on your way to business ownership and even have pre approved suppliers, designs and even uniforms all ready in a neat and tidy little package.
Let’s take a look at the costs involved in 2 common franchises:
-An initial down payment is required when you purchase a new restaurant (40% of the total cost) or an existing restaurant (25% of the total cost). It must come from non-borrowed, unencumbered personal resources (which include cash on hand; securities, bonds, and debentures; vested profit sharing (net of taxes); and business or real estate equity, exclusive of your personal residence.)
-Because the cost varies from restaurant to restaurant the total cost can vary for down payment. Generally, a minimum of $800,000 of non-borrowed (unencumbered) personal resources to consider you for a franchise.
Service fee: a monthly fee based upon the restaurant’s sales performance (currently a service fee of 4.0% of monthly gross sales).
Rent: a monthly base rent and/or percentage rent that is a percentage of monthly gross sales.
YIKES!! And there are time commitments, how many hours a week you as an owner are required to work and you have to apply to qualify for a location.
So where does that leave the average person wanting to start a business, but doesn’t have the equity, backing, or resources to start a traditional location?
Climbing very quickly on the popularity ladder, direct sales has been seen as the perfect way to add additional income while working spare time, part time or full time. Are you looking to pay-off a few bills faster, buy a few extra groceries each week or looking for something you can build into a full time career?
This is your business and you can build it as your chose on your time and your terms and that gives you THE POWER OF CHOICE!! That, my friends is the power to give yourself permission to build the life you are destined to live.
Tony and I are always looking to work eager entrepreneurs who are wanting to build the future they deserve, and Nerium has been the vehicle that has given us the choice of where that future will lead. So, if you’re looking for a really great company, want to work with a really great team who believes in YOU, and want the mentor ship you deserve click here .

Affirmations can be what ever you want them to be; good, bad or down right ugly depending on your level of awareness and desire to change those thoughts.
Lately, there has been a lot of buzz on the net when it comes to using affirmations so here is the scoop on how they work and how to work them.
How many times do you verbally beat yourself up in a day? It’s OK (not OK) because we all do it, but GOOD NEWS! It can be changed by replacing it with other words. Words are powerful things, so let’s use those words for good and not eeeeeviiiilllll….
Your thoughts form your character and how you interact with the world. They also determine your level of success personally and spiritually and how others relate towards you.
Life experience plays a HUGE factor in self talk/affirmations. Things that happened when you were a kid, what a teacher might have said to you in Grade 6 (good or bad), parents, friends, neighbors, bosses etc. can rear their ugly heads when something not so cool happens. Most people punish themselves by repeating negative thoughts if they’ve made a mistake or someone criticizes them. This is when that gremlin sneaks in and cheats us by using defeating, unpleasant and harmful words causing our thoughts to punish us when there is no need for punishment. If it happens over and over again it starts to take a toll on the psyche and our perception of self worth. Negative thoughts are like a blood sucker that slows your brain down. Because the subconscious mind believes those bad things you are saying as truth, it attracts bad situations and problems into your life because, “Hey, why would you lead you the wrong way?”
Our thoughts determine our quality of life, so the head games we play inside will determine the quality of our day.
Optimistic and positive thoughts create a ‘happy zappy’ effect which helps stimulate growth of nerve connections, supports brain growth, increases serotonin which creates a sense of well-being, improves cognition by increasing mental productivity, improves your ability to analyze and think, increases attentiveness and of course leads to more happy thoughts. Happy people are more creative, think better and well…are just better.
Positive affirmations can have a spiritual force about them. Like a mantra they need to be in the NOW, strong, clear and to the point.
A great way to start a positive affirmation is to speak it as if it is happening right now.
I AM A SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR vs I will be a successful entrepreneur
I HAVE A STRONG AND GROWING BUSINESS vs My business will grow strong and successful
PEOPLE ARE ATTRACTED TO ME BECAUSE I HAVE VALUE vs People will be attracted to be because I have value
See how those statements are written in the ‘now’ as opposed to eventually. By speaking your truth NOW, your now will start to be your truth.
Sometimes you give yourself push back while saying your affirmations, so be very clear and concise with what you really want in your world. When those dream snatchers creep in be firm and direct by immediately focusing on what want and erasing everything else. Push back those thoughts and stay firm on what you believe, that you deserve the world and every success it has to offer. You are the master of your mind, take charge and kick all negativity in the ass.
Here are a bunch of great affirmations to get you started on changing your thoughts and changing the world. These are mine, but I love you so much you can use them too!
I am the creator of my life; I build its security.
I am filled with energy and joy and share it with the world.
I nurture my mind with good thoughts, my body with good food and my soul with good intentions.
I am creative, brilliant and share my gifts with others.
I am a successful entrepreneur.
Successful business minded people are looking for me and my opportunity.
Entrepreneurs are finding me to help them build a strong business.
Motivated people come into my life today.
I bless people everyday with my kindness.
REMEMBER YOU ARE WORTH IT! So let’s get this life rolling!! Jot your positive affirmations onto sticky notes, write them on your bathroom mirror, stick them onto the steering wheel of your car, hang them above your bed, on your front door. Basically, where ever you look every day stick one there. You deserve the best, so go be the best!
If you want to find a way to get everything you want from life by hanging out with happy, positive people who can show you how to build a great income check us out here.
If you want to start an amazing business with a company who focuses on happiness, let’s get you started now join here.
It’s time to give yourself permission to succeed!
Lots of love,
Vanessa and Tony
Michael Turnbull Current Affair Nerium Australia scandal.
Former Bachelorette star Michael Turnbull interviewed on Australian news media outlet A Current Affair.
Concerns about his possible involvement in a pyramid scheme.
Honestly, after looking at their reporting of the situation I really have to wonder. They obviously have real idea about the difference between a real Ponzi Scheme and a legitimate direct sales company. Watch this video and learn why.
I mean really, it sounds more like they have a love/hate relationship with Michael Turnbull. Seems that they have been unfairly focusing on the former Bachelorette star, claiming all sorts of things including that he is involved in a “Pyramid Scheme”.
Here’s where A Current Affair goes very wrong.
They claim that Michael Turnbull is part a pyramid scheme company. They claim that Nerium International is a pyramid scheme.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Watch the video above and learn why.
You cannot create real customers and be a Ponzi Scheme.
Get your facts straight, A Current Affair.
For all of our friends involved in Direct Sales, especially those living in Australia, if you have concerns or would like help growing your business, comment below or contact us here.
Former professional NFL player Ken Hamelin shares why he uses Nerium EHT Canada.
Some of these former professional athletes have enjoyed the product so much they are brand partners with Nerium International as well. Why?
None of these athletes are short on funds. They have had very successful professional careers. The benefits they have received from using Nerium EHT helped them see the benefits of being partnered with a company that was on the leading edge of nootropic research.
Pretty simple really. We only have one brain. Its kinda important. You have nothing lose but you have focus, clarity, improved sleep, increased energy, improved memory to gain.
Pretty simple really. Whether you are 5 or 95 you should be taking this all natural supplement. Contact us today if you want to give it a try for 30 days with a 100% money back guarantee.

Really? The answer is as much or as little as you want! Listen to Nerium’s Millionaire Club Member and top income earner Todd Cahill share his experiences
Make sure you get back with the person who shared this video with you! If you are looking for the first time and want to partner with us click here
Think skincare is just for ladies? Think again! Here what former US Marine Obom Bowen has to say about why Nerium, why this team and why now!
Get back with the person who invited you to watch this presentation and we would like to welcome you to the biggest baddest Canadian team in Nerium!
Watch this video and hear from Millionaire Club Member Dale Munger why Nerium, Why Nerium Canada and why now!
Nerium is going to Australia!!!
AND WE ARE SO EXCITED!!!
So, let’s take count of how many countries Nerium International has added to its growing list of openings.
AND WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED!!!
“Australia is a thriving market for both the global anti-aging skincare segment and direct sales industry,” says Jeff Olson, Founder and CEO. “Nerium’s leadership team looks forward to bringing our unique business model and revolutionary products to Australia as we continue to expand Nerium International into the Asia-Pacific market.”
According to Directselling.org.au
Direct Sales companies are hot right now and offer a savy way of doing business that is easily accessible to everyone wanting to start a small business, but not wanting the hefty costs and commitment associated with the traditional business style.
I love this type of business model because it can be done from the comfort of your own home in your free time OR it can offer a part time-full time income depending on YOU. Direct sales offers mothers an income while raising their families, young entrepreurs an alternative to a 9:00-5:00 JOB and anyone wanting to earn a few extra bucks a month another way to bring in a sideline income without having to take another job.
Glue this jazzy business alternative together with a ground breaking, earth shaking opportunity that Nerium International offers, add some top-notch scientifically based products, world class leadership and a killer compensation plan and you have a WINNER.
Because Nerium is breaking records all over the direct sales industry AND it’s just the beginning of our global launch so NOW is the time to get started.
We are always looking for sharp like minded people all over the world to partner with, so if you are looking for a rocking opportunity with top leadership on one of the fastest growing teams in the industry message us here
We are running with the runners and changing lives as we go!!!
Dream Big my friends!
Love Vanessa and Tony
Everyone has a superpower. I love that! But, not everyone knows what that superpower might be.
That’s a very good question. Why can’t we see the superpowers in ourselves?
Maybe it’s because of our past. First of all we don’t inherit our personalities. Those are developed through life experiences. We can learn to ‘pick-up’ some traits from our parents, siblings and friends, but we develop our personalities through the act of living. The great thing about that is we mold who we are by where we have been. We have a huge treasure chest of adventures we have been on, some good and some not so good, but all these experiences can be used to hone our superpowers. The gifts we have inside us.
Here’s are a few great little questions to ask yourself to help you find ‘the power within.
1. What do your friends compliment you about when talking about your personality?
2. If you could pick 1 superpower to help others, what would it be?
3. What do you like most about yourself?
4. When you hear about someone struggling, what would you do to help ‘fix’ their problem?
If you look at your answers I’m sure you can already see your superpower emerging.
Experience is what leads you to your next adventure. It’s what gives you that special something that sets you above the rest. It makes you different, helps you relate to others going through a similar struggle and gives you a chance to make a difference.
When I was a teen I thought I needed to be like everyone else. I needed to think the same way, like the same music, laugh at the same jokes and admire the same people…Basically, just be a sheep.
When I became an adult I thought I needed to be like everyone else, make money the traditional way, live risk free and admire the same people…Basically, just be an older sheep.
Then I grew up!
I learned that I was miserable trying to fit in. I was terrible at pretending to like my JOB and pretending to like people I thought I needed to be friends with. I began to realize that ‘success’ wasn’t all about money or status. That’s when I understood what having a super power really meant.
Today is a BIG day! Today I don’t agree with Merium-Webster’s definition of Success
SUCCESS: Your Super Power (our definition)
Today is the day YOU find your SUCCESS, your super power, your way to contribute to society in a way that shows everyone that YOU ARE A SUPERHERO because you have found your gift.
Be true to yourself and let the super YOU shine through. Take a moment to think about how you have influenced your friends, family, kids, dog, neighbor, stranger. Did you make them smile? Did it feel good? If your answer is YES, then my friend you have found your super power.
If you would like to hangout with like minded people living life on their terms and building their dreams drop us a line . If you would like to do what we’re doing and have fun building your dreams Partner with us.

Soooo…you’ve heard about the Nerium Pyramid Scheme and you want to know if it’s fact or fiction? Here’s the skinny.
When we were exploring how to rank our blog to get the most hits, it was suggested we write ‘scam’ posts about other network marketing companies, our ‘competitors’ and their ‘bad’ products.
BUT..that’s not cool in our eyes. We believe our blog should be able to stand out on its own merits and not by bashing others. That is the wrong way to do business and the wrong way to gain followers. Same goes for a legit company, it should be able to stand on its own merits.
When people ask me if it’s one of ‘those scams’ or a ‘pyramid scheme’ I ask them this, “What do you mean a pyramid scheme?”
WHAT A LEGIT MLM IS:
Product is sold every single day.
People are making an income every single day.
There is no buying of products you don’t need.
There are no crazy quotas.
There is a 30 day money back guarantee. If for any reason you don’t like a product, you get your money back. No questions asked.
There is a simple, proven system that when followed, helps you succeed.
There is a one team atmosphere. No worries about competing with other people in your organization or not. We are all here to help.
REAL products based on REAL science, REAL morals and values and YOU CAN REALLY MAKE MONEY if you work your business, how much depends on YOU.
There’s no limits to what you can do, how much you can earn and how far you will go. It all depends on how badly you want to succeed and how much time you want to commit to your home-based business.
My friends is the REAL skinny on the Nerium Pyramid Scheme. There is no scheme.
If you want more info on how Nerium might be a good fit for you, drop us line we would love to chat on the phone.
If you want to know how we helped 14 regular people drive home a FREE Lexus just ask.
Lots of love,
Vanessa and Tony

It acts as a powerful ANTIOXIDANT and works to TARGET free radical damage (I don’t want those radicals running free on my face)
It BOOSTS the cell renewal process to reveal YOUNGER-LOOKING skin (I don’t want older looking skin so this works for me)
It mimics the skin’s NATURAL, age-fighting mechanism. (I am fighting the old ages)

It TARGETS both the EXISTING AND FUTURE SIGNS OF AGING!! Resulting in YOUNGER-LOOKING SKIN. (Sorry for shouting but this is AWESOME!!!)
Just in case you are wondering..
It’s also going to do some fighting. Fighting things like:

How badly do you want change? Really?
Sorry friends. This is the secret recipe to EVERYTHING IN LIFE!
“Your Desire To Change Must Be Greater Than Your Desire To Stay The Same.”
The first time I heard this quote was on a cassette tape recording done by Les Brown and I has stuck with me for almost 25 years.
Because it is truly the answer to all life’s problems.
How to Get Out of Debt
How to Get Into Shape
How to Save Money, Eat Better, Find My Dream Man, Woman
Whatever it is it’s up to YOU to do it!
What Might Have Been….
It Should Have Been….
What If I Had….
I remember a time when we failed. Failed at business, failed at planning our lives, failed at feeding our family
Basically Just Stinkin Failed at Life!!
Until one day, we got it! Tony got it way before I did. He saw the vision of mind over situation.
He read the books on how to live life like you owned it!
He listened to the voices of great thinkers and entrepreneurs like Napoleon Hill, Ed Foreman, John C. Maxwell, Jeff Olson and Robert Kiyosaki. He desperately tried to help me to understand that it’s what you think and do every day that will change a life. Putting action into what you have read or heard is what it takes to move forward.
Once I got it, I mean really and totally GOT IT our lives changed.
I stopped dumping my problems when I talked on the phone.
I stopped thinking that we will never get out of the hole.
I stopped filling my face with food.
I stopped whining about what was wrong with our life.
I stopped my stinkin thinkin.
Here Is What I DID!
I started telling people I was AWESOME even when things may not have been.
I started making a weekly plan and budget to pay the bills.
I took gluten, sugar and dairy out of my diet and gave myself a ‘cheat’ day on the weekend so I could eat all those ‘bad’ things that used to make me happy.
I didn’t deprive myself of foods I craved, I eat them on my cheat day only.
I count my blessings from the day, before I close my eyes, even if it’s as simple as “I’m so happy I cleaned the toilets today because that means I don’t have to tomorrow.”
I go through my list of things I want to happen in my life and I speak it in the present. “I’m so happy I own my dream home.” “I’m so excited I have $100,000.00 in my savings.” Say it in the NOW.
I know that everything I say, react to and think relies totally on ME.
NEVER will we let someone else tell us what we are worth
NEVER will we let someone else decide what is best for us
NEVER will we listen to those who want to keep us in a hole because they aren’t willing to dig themselves out
NEVER are we ever going to leave our lives in the hands of someone else.
So I ask you right now..
HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT CHANGE?
We can help with that change click here.
Dream Big friends!

HOW DOES YOUR SELF CONFIDENCE DEFINE WHO YOU ARE?
It’s not OK when that comparison gets mixed-up with how we value ourselves and our self confidence gets broken.
You see our own self definition means so much more than what others think. How we see ourselves is how we relate to the world.
Stop Comparing Yourself To Others
You are you and there ain’t no one else like ya!
How you see yourself (your self worth) is a direct factor of how you value yourself.
I know it should be easy to understand how you see yourself, but many people don’t really know who ‘they‘ are.
Your Outward Appearance
You’re sitting in your local coffee joint yacking to a friend when a tall red head walks in. You look her up and down. Check out what she is wearing, look over her hair, see how she interacts with her world and draw a conclusion about ‘who’ she is and it ain’t a good one. Everyone has done this.
What you are not realizing is that you are directly comparing yourself to her consciously or subconsciously it doesn’t really matter, it’s happened. The reason why is that somewhere in our crazy minds we place great value on our outward appearance and by comparing our ‘self’ to others we start to form an identity.
It’s not a bad thing, it’s just what it is!
Don’t let that physical comparison fool you into believing you aren’t good enough or are better than anyone else. You are you and that’s a mighty fine person to be.
Change that Kookie Komparison (playin with da words :) ) into productive self compliments.
1. Why am I comparing myself this lady I don’t even know?
2. Am I admiring her looks or picking them apart?
3. Why would I think I’m less because she is the way she is?
Try this Instead:
Am I really just liking the kindness in her face or her happy misdemeanor?
Am I drawing a conclusion about someone I don’t know because she is attractive?
Am I insecure with how I present myself so I draw unfair conclusions about her?
Your Inner Speak
Oh boy! This one is a BIGGIE!!
You’re having a conversation, playing a sport, answering a question in class, at a meeting or just interacting with other humans and you say something awkward, have the wrong answer or just plain spoke before your brain had time to react.
It’s OK, we have all been there and done that.
Don’t let that defeating self-talk take over your mind and emotions. “I’m stupid”, “How could I have messed that up?”, “I’m a loser”, these negative words and ideas only have a defeating purpose, and that purpose is to defeat YOU!
Challenge yourself every single time those Negative Nellies pop into your head.
1. Why do I feel this way?
2. Is what I’m thinking fact or am I making some of this up in my head? Is it true?
3. Am I jumping to the worst negative conclusion?
Try this instead:
Is it really as bad as I’m thinking it to be?
What’s the worst thing that could happen?
Will any of this really matter a year from now, a month or even a week?
Your Drawing The WRONG Conclusion Over Someone’s Success
“He must be dealing something illegal because he has money.” “She probably slept her way to the top that’s why she’s where she is in the company.”
P-A-LA-EEEZ!! Please get over yourself cause what you are shoveling is stinkin up the joint and hurting my brain.
Ask yourself “Self? Why would you even think this?” It’s OK to admire someone elses success,
Don’t immediately draw conclusions as to how they got there. That’s unfair to them and so very unfair to you. That Green-Eyed-Monster is not attractive AT ALL. Ask yourself this,
1. Am I jealous of his success?
2. Do I regret not following through with MY dreams?
3. Do I have goals?
Try this instead:
Make a list of things you want to accomplish.
Find a mentor who can give you guidance towards your goals.
Don’t be afraid of your own success.
Here’s my thoughts on everything we talked about right here! You are amazing! There is no one else in this whole giant universe like you. So why do you think you need to be like someone else?
Find your dreams, write them down, build a dream/vision board and go get what the heck you want out of this life. You only get one so LIVE THAT DAMN THING TO DEATH!!

YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS “SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE YOU’RE A MILLENNIAL MILES AWAY…..”
Ya, that’s how it feels sometimes when we’re talking to our young adults. They don’t seem to see things the way us older folks do,
And they definitely don’t want to live the way our generation had to live.
This is a Millennial:
Millennials (also known as the Millennial Generation or Generation Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X. There are no precise dates when the generation starts and ends. Researchers and commentators use birth years ranging from the early 1980s to the early 2000s. Thanx Wikipedia.org
Megan Abbot, a millennial life coach says:
“Older generations tend to glorify hard work as a virtue in and of itself,” she says. “But millennials typically only value work insofar as it creates the results, or the acknowledgment or the growth they desire.”
She says millennials want to see “a direct impact and return for their efforts”—and for that reason, they’re more likely to leave jobs in a way that their ladder-climbing elders dismiss as “unrealistic.”
Other findings in the Bentley survey seem to confirm that millennials are more attracted to finding meaning and purpose than to just climbing a corporate ladder:
“You can curse them for what they’re not, or you can leverage them for what they are,” Abbott tells me. “Millennials tend to be self-confident, creative, optimistic, energetic, social-minded, and highly innovative. These characteristics can reap huge rewards for employers who are willing to understand the total package they come delivered in.” Forbes.com
Time has become the new currency for this generation and Time Freedom is what they want!

The Art of Happiness: THE WORLD HAPPINESS REPORT
I never knew there was a World Happiness Report.
BUT, this is a type of report that totally makes sense to me!
I’m likin’ that thinkin’!
The Top 6 Factors:
#1. GDP per capita (Gross Domestic Product) *Used to gauge the health of a country’s economy
#2. Life Expectancy *Used to gauge how much life you have left.
#3. Perceived National Corruption *Used to gauge eeeevvviiill!
#4. Freedom To Make Life Choices *Used to gauge your ability to understand “you only get one kick at the cat, so make it count!”
#5. Generosity Of Fellow Citizens *Used to gauge your ‘pay-it-forwardness’.
#6. Having Someone To Rely On In Times Of Trouble *Used to gauge how AMAZING your bff’s are.
IS HAPPINESS A NEW FAD?
The word ‘happiness’ seems all the rage lately, and for a good reason.
PEEPS ARE SICK AND TIRED OF FEELING SICK AND TIRED of their lives. They want something better and aren’t afraid to go get it!
What if I’m stuck in a lousy job?
What if I’m stuck with a lousy partner?
What if my bank account sucks?
What if my WHAT IF’S are more important than actually living my life?
Well, Here’s The Deal Folks,
Every single thing you did today or do tomorrow is determined by how badly you want change. The End!
I need my job, spouse..I only have so much money coming in…IT’S JUST NOT THAT SIMPLE!
HOW CAN I BE HAPPY UNTIL I HAVE MY DREAM MAN, WOMAN, DOG, HOME, A $MILLION BUCKS$?
Yep, I’m hearin’ you but I ain’t pickin’ up anything that you’re throwin’ down.
Just think about that for a minute “Happiness is the precursor to success!”
Remember that day when everything seemed to be going your way?
You woke up in an amazing mood, traffic was great, someone at Star Bucks paid it forward by paying for your coffee in the drive-through, you aced the business meeting/sale/exam and then you went home and were surprised with a dinner out?
WAIT…WHAT WAS THE FIRST PART?
You woke up in an amazing mood? All these things happened after I was already happy? Whaaaaa..?
So many of us think that after all those great things, the perfect partner, house or wealth happens THEN I will be happy, but studies have shown that that’s not actually the case.
*Happiness must already be in motion in order set all those other things in motion. One can not happen without the other (legally that is).
What Sets Us Apart From The Rest?
That’s simple. We are part of something so much bigger that the usual direct sales company.
I call this the Happiness Effect! :)
What I Mean Is….
Nerium International is so much more than a direct selling company with amazing anti-aging and body firming products based on real science, record breaking growth in only its first 3 years of business, gives back to the community in multiple ways and a leadership team second to none.

Be happy, be you. YOU deserve the BEST!

HEY, LET’S FACE IT…
We’re all a little odd.
It’s OK, it’s what makes us all unique, because YOU ARE SPECIAL!
But, that’s not really the kind of ‘weird’ I’m talking about. It’s the weird we can make some people feel when we have approached them about a great opportunity, exciting adventure or something that’s a bit out of the ordinary.
I’M EXCITED SO LOOK AT ME!! LOOK AT THIS AMAZING THING!
Sharing something you really, really love is a normal interaction.
We never think twice about referring someone to a great hairdresser or a taste bud tingling pizza joint. It’s a natural reaction when we find something we love to recommend it to another person. It’s not weird to do that, to think it is weird is just plain well, WEIRD!
So What’s the Hang-Up?
So many people think it’s their job as a direct selling pro to put their own little spin on the product or opportunity they are so darn excited about. AND..here is where it can get weird. Sales Training basics folks.
*They try too hard
Which might make their friend feel a little icky.
Nobody likes ‘pushy’, not even your bff or your mommy.
*They are too polished
Which might make their friend think, “Who the heck is this talking to me? This isn’t my good buddy Joe. He don’t use words that big!”
Nobody likes a slick salesy person. Be you, it’s the easiest person to be.
*They try to ‘sell’ to a person
Which might make their friend wonder, “If this is such a great thing, then why do I feel bad about it?”
*Nobody wants to be ‘sold’. Freedom to choose is #1.
*They come-off as desperate
Which can make their friend feel guilty for saying ‘NO’.
*Nobody wants to feel badly for not having the same excitement as you. Your ‘thing’, opportunity or business just isn’t for them, and that’s A-OK!
HERE’S THE SCOOP!
If the company you are with is everything you say it is, and your friend is looking for a great opportunity, then you shouldn’t have to convince him to join you. He should be able to see the company ROCKS and want to be a part of a great thing.
! Does your company have an outstanding product that CAN NOT be duplicated (will NEVER be found in a mall)
! Are the leaders in your company industry icons (or some corporate dudes wanting to make a fast buck)
! Do the values of your company reflect your own values (are you comfortable with where the company is going)
! Does your company encourage you to live a life filled with happiness (or are you stressed)
! Will you be a better YOU because your company encourages self-development (or are you stressed and angry)
! Does your company give you FREE inventory (or is your garage full of product YOU had to buy to meet a quota)
! Are you rewarded for helping others succeed (or is it “Good luck Chuck, thanks for the dough”)
WHAT’S THE REAL SKINNY?
Here’s the real scoop folks!
If you have to lay-it-on-thick because you want to build your business.
If you have to pressure peeps to join you.
If you have to buy hundreds of $ of product every month in order to reach the next level,
Maybe your need to move on up to something better.
You do deserve better..RIGHT?
