Nerium Austria! Nerium’s First Class Opportunity Enters Austria!

Nerium Austria

Nerium Austria! We Are On Our Way!

Nerium Austria

Austria! Tony and I can’t tell you how thrilled we are to be entering Europe at such an exciting time in our Nerium life. The first 5 years of Nerium’s explosive success into the direct sales industry has been nothing short of a joyously life changing transformation for many, but has also set the industry on it’s toes with wonder as to what this new and revolutionary company is going to do next!

Austria And Anti-Aging

Nerium Austria makes the perfect union when it comes to over all anti-aging. Because of the desire for holistic, botanically based, scientifically researched products and the need for quality skin care at an affordable price, Nerium’s launch into Austria is pure logic. Like a marriage that was meant to be.

Why Nerium Austria?

Opportunity! Quality Products! Culture!

To most the opportunity part makes a lot of sense. Being first as a dynamic company breaks into a market place is a very exciting position to be in and setting the ground work for expansive growth is essential as you establish yourself as a leader in the field. Finding wellness products that fit into all areas of people lives is one of the best ways to to build that foundation, and Nerium definitely has you covered in the science and research department. But have you ever thought about how important a company’s culture is? Nerium’s success in opportunity and product development has already caught the eye of many publications and media outlets, and its long list of awards speaks for its success. But culture is something that is often missed.

Nerium’s Culture Sets Us Apart

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all the world was a happy place? Nerium’s brand partners are part of the world’s largest happiness movement, and that’s something we are tremendously proud of. The first thing you will notice when you meet a Nerium brand partner is that we are all happy, and that’s not always the case with other companies. It’s this culture of helping others be the best they can be that really does set us a part from the rest and the encouragement of personal development is the basis for Nerium’s philosophy of being the best you you can be. AND, it’s real. We are different and we like it!

Why Us?

Sometimes starting something new can be a bit daunting, especially if it’s totally out of your comfort zone or if you have never done anything like this before and we get it! Tony and I have never been afraid of hard work or trying something new. We didn’t come from the network marketing industry. I came from the education world and Tony from the construction industry. Were we a little scared when we started? YES! Did we ask a million questions before we started? YES! Are we happy we were among the first in Canada to jump on board? YES! So we get it! We also get how life changing an opportunity as big as this is as it enters the doors of a new country because we’ve been there and we know how to build in a brand new market and have experience in how to do it right, with values and success. So many lives have changed in the most incredible ways during our journey so far and would love to help you do the same. Connect with us here so we can show you how.

Work From Home – Life On Your Terms. Is working from home a good fit for you?

Ever Wonder What It’s Like To Work From Home?

A work from home opportunity isn’t for everyone. Wonder if you could do it? Read on!

Work from home

The Good, The Bad And The What If?


OMG! There are a thousand reasons I can mention about ‘THE GOOD’ parts of a work from home career, but to avoid sounding too hypey I will touch on the reasons why this industry spoke to me.


Summer is such an exciting time for families. Vacations, family reunions, special trips and weddings seem to fill up the months so quickly that it all seems to vanish in a heated blur and in no time the kids are back in school and your 2 weeks of earned vacation are over.

I mentioned the 2 weeks of vacation, but what happens the other weeks when you’re at work? Do you hire a babysitter or daycare to watch your kids or does your spouse alternate their holidays with you?

The flexibility that comes with having a home based business is priceless. What if you could work from home and still enjoy your summer by attending all the fun events and still being able to listen to the kids jumping through the water sprinkler in the backyard, not missing a step of their summer? Life is better when you have the choice to be flexible with your time by working your business as you travel, wherever and whenever you want.

No Commute:

Imagine what your day would be like not having to add extra time to your work day because you will no longer be commuting to work. And an extra 2-4 hours total drive time a day gone because you decided to do your own thing and start a home based business. You’ve heard the saying ‘time is money’, what’s your time worth? Do you get paid for the time it takes to get to your job? What if you could take those 2-4 hours and use them for taking your kids to school, meditate, exercise, build your business or just sleep? What does your life balance look like?

Have you thought about the stress? The traffic battles, angry commuters, your worry about getting to the office late? What is that doing to you? Would deleting that drive also delete stress? What else could you be doing?

Wouldn’t it be great to not spend so much on gas and vehicle maintenance or bus, subway or train passes?


Increase productivity by actually being able to focus on your business. By minimizing the distractions of coworkers, deadlines, meetings and interruptions you can increase the quality time you can put into your business. Seriously, if you work better from the deck in the morning then work there. If you feel better working in your sweat shirt or your pajamas, then you can do that.

Imagine being able to sit down and block out time to build your business without the workplace distractions, take a coffee break when and as long as you want. What if there was no office politics?




For an introvert like myself, isolation hasn’t been an issue, but I can understand someone that needs constant companionship may feel isolated from others.

Here’s where the cool part comes in. You can take your business anywhere you want to and that’s what make the direct sales, home based business, YOU Economy mindset the perfect way to get exactly what you want from life. Go to where the people are. The great thing is you don’t need to clock into the same place day after day after day. You get to chose the location you work from and the kind of people you want to attract.

Up To You:

No one is looking over your shoulder reminding you to go to work. Nobody is going to give you a deadline. There won’t be anyone keeping you on track. The growth of your business is totally up to you. How quickly you build your empire and income is your responsibility. Some can find that scary because there isn’t an hourly wage or salary to rely on. Others find it exhilarating and love the challenge to stretching their limits and setting daily, weekly or monthly goals for themselves, but remember, it’s your business so how you build it, the time you put into it and where you do it from is totally up to you. Your growth is up to you.



So, you’ve read some of the pros and cons to becoming a home based business owner. Believe me, I could have gone on and on about the benefits, but if you’ve read this far you have more than likely checked other blogs talking about the same thing.

When we were looking at starting a home based business there were certain criteria that had to be met before we would even consider venturing into the network marketing world and I believe it rings true for other home based businesses. Here are a few things to consider before you dive into the work from home world.

  1. Are the products consumable, meaning is there a regular demand for the products.
  2. Is there a residual component to the compensation plan (will the product be purchased on an ongoing basis so you continually get paid each month. Important.)
  3. Are the products exclusive, meaning who else and what other outlets are selling the product. (Exclusivity keeps a business going, no competition.)
  4. Are the products patented, meaning is there security that no one else can replicate your product.
  5. Is there a proven system that works?
  6. Who is the leader? Research those at the head of the company. Have they been to jail?
  7. What values are portrayed? Does the company live up to it’s own morals and values?
  8. Give back to the community. Does the company give back to organizations?

What’s important to us may not be important to you. What is important is that you make a list of what you’re looking for and find a work from home business or product that is exactly what you’re looking for. Find yourself a home with a company that you can bring into your home and then think about the ‘what if’.

What if this is the thing that takes you to the next level? What if this can help you find freedom in whatever capacity ‘freedom’ means to you. What if a work from home opportunity is exact;y what you’ve been looking for? What if now is your time to take the next step?

We have found our home with Nerium International because everything we valued as important was met by Nerium’s history in the industry, science based and innovative products and vision of where it’s going. We have not been disappointed.

Remember, you are never alone. Contact us here to talk about your home based business options.

Dream Big!

Lots of love,

Vanessa and Tony

Us and LexusYes, this is really us in front of our new Lexus that we pay for with our Lexus Bonus from Nerium each month. We don’t pay for our car, our home based business pays for our car because we qualify to have it paid for each month.

Silly MLM Stories

The craziest ideas are out there about people from the network marketing industry. Some of them are pretty far out and some are funny, but not in the funny ‘haha’ sort of way. Sure there are people in the industry who freak us out and companies that are shady, but you can’t paint every single person or company with the same purple brush, and you can’t draw a conclusion about the industry as a whole from something your mom or uncle said about pyramid schemes and slick sales people.

Just to clear up the misconception of legitimate people with legitimate businesses in the industry, we want to let you get a glimpse into who Tony and I are because honestly, if you don’t know us you really have no foundation to judge us. And who WE are and what WE believe in is pretty damn awesome. WE ARE HOME BASED BUSINESS OWNERS.


Who We Are Not!


Sorry, we have no magical powers or secret hypnotic words that can put you under our spell. Most of the time we don’t even talk about our business unless someone asks us or we meet a truly unique individual that would be a good fit for the type of person we want to be associated with. We’re not evil, sorry. WE authentically care about our team and changing lives. We can’t brainwash you. No hidden secret triggers here. WE ARE HOME BASED BUSINESS OWNERS.


Let’s say you decided you wanted to check out a local event, just for your own curiosity. No one there will attack you, corner you or lock you inside the room until the event is over. We’re not freaky that way. What we will do is welcome you with open arms, fill you with amazing energy because the people you will meet there are world class individuals and will honestly answer any questions you have. Sorry, again we won’t circle around you and make you feel uncomfortable. You’re not ‘fresh meat’ and we’re not that hungry. WE ARE HOME BASED BUSINESS OWNERS.

Kool-Aid Drinkers

You know what? Tony and I don’t even like Kool-Aid and we absolutely abhor the saying, “What kind of Kool-Aid are you drinking” or “They’re going to make you drink the Kool-Aid.” What we have is a legitimate business with real tax deductions and real government approvals in each and every country we launch into. No one can make you do anything, you are a real thinking person and anyone who says or makes any reference to you about ‘drinking the Kool-Aid’ is personally insulting you. Sorry, if they think that little about you that they feel you can be easily taken in by a scammer, they really don’t think that highly of your intelligence, integrity or you as a person. They are insulting you, us and every real direct selling business owner on the planet. You probably should find some new friends. WE ARE HOME BASED BUSINESS OWNERS.

Snake Oil Seller/Smooth Talker

OK really? Is this the wild west? Do your research. If a company and its products are making unrealistic or false claims or asks you for money before you can enroll, run away. I mean RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN! One of the reasons Tony and I chose to partner with Nerium International was because of its cutting edge, first to the market products that are PATENTED, have PROVEN and REAL SCIENCE, 3RD PARTY CLINICAL TRIALS and products that are EXCLUSIVE to Nerium and its distributors. This means the products actually work, and work very well. If anyone needs to be a smooth talker in order to convince you to buy their products, then honestly their business and products are junk. Plain and simple. Do your research, but make sure you do REAL research and not trusting a random blogger who is probably working for the competition OR is getting paid or fed false information from another company in order to rate their blog. You’re a smart person, be smart about your research when looking at a company and its leadership. A good rule of thumb: If the owners or CEO of the company has ever been in jail, then you probably shouldn’t join that company. If the owners or company needs to scam, lie, scoop or make promises to people in order to entice them to join, then you probably should do a bit more research into the credibility and leadership of that company. Not every company plays fair or is created equally. WE ARE HOME BASED BUSINESS OWNERS.

Money Takers

Again, do your RESEARCH. If a company/person is asking you for money before you enroll to ‘save a space’, DO NOT JOIN. If you are investing into your business by purchasing a start-up kit or distributor kit and immediately have a small business, that’s a different story because now you are part of the company’s distribution. YOU are a business owner, so it only makes sense that you have a website, product, marketing materials etc. because that’s part of owning a business. When we owned traditional businesses we paid for inventory, a website, marketing materials etc. because again, it’s part of owning a business, that makes sense. BUT, if someone wants you to give them money to ‘secure your spot’, ‘be first in line’ then they are literally taking your money. DON’T FALL FOR IT. If a company asks you to make large purchases of inventory every month in order to be active, look again at what that company is all about. When we were researching Nerium one of things we loved is the Nerium Gives Back FREE INVENTORY program AND the FREE personal product 3 URFREE program where we can get our personal use of products for free. What’s the thing that kills most businesses? Overhead. Having the ability to receive our personal products for FREE and FREE inventory makes sense. WE ARE HOME BASED BUSINESS OWNERS.

Who WE Are!

We’ve Been There And Done That!

We have been both employees and traditional business owners. We have had rocking successes and crashing failures and that has given us wisdom. We’re not from the network marketing industry. We did dabble when we were younger, but we failed miserably because it was very much, “Thank you for your money honey”, and that’s it. No one took us by the hand to show us the ropes and one of the companies we did join were actually scammers and the CEO went to jail. That’s why we really looked hard at Nerium, it’s founder, compensation plan, products, leadership, values, if it was willable to our sons, if the products were exclusive, patented, had real science backing them before we made a decision. WE are business owners, Nerium’s business is our business and it’s a REAL business. WE ARE HOME BASED BUSINESS OWNERS.

We’re Hard Workers

If anyone promises you a quick money business or makes any financial promises to you then that’s a get rich quick scheme. Those people are liars, and we detest liars. We worked our badonkadonks off to be one of the top earners in Canada and we are having a blast doing it. That’s the TRUTH! We get to work at our business full time together and that’s just the way we love it! But, we have an incredible team that also has an amazing business working full time, part time or spare time. That is what’s so awesome about this business. YOU get to chose how Nerium can fit into your life and how fast you want to build your business. Life is about making awesome choices, the freedom to chose what you do AND who you do it with is POWERFUL. And we promise to work with you by showing you exactly how we have done it with Nerium’s proven system. We will be beside you every single step of the way. WE WANT TO HELP YOU.

We Want To Help You Be The Best YOU

One thing we learned from working at jobs is that not everyone wants you to succeed. I can’t remember an employer ever encouraging me to be better at my job than she/he was so I could work my way up the scale. If anything I was discourage from bettering myself or working harder than was expected of me. It’s sad now that I think about it.

Here is where we and Nerium are different. WE actually want you to be the best you can be. WE want to motivate you to see your super power, to live a life filled with happiness and support. That may sound strange to some, but it’s the truth. Once you get to know us you will see that’s what we are all about. No one is alone in this world and we authentically believe that we have all been placed on this Earth to help each other along, that’s how life should be. WE WANT TO MAKE YOU A BETTER YOU.

We Are The Real Deal

We don’t put on a show and we definitely don’t think we are better than anyone else. We are honestly good people with real goals in life. We don’t live in a mansion, drive ridiculously expensive cars or have a lavish lifestyle. Actually, we live in an 800 sq foot house, own 3 ducks, 4 chickens, 2 goats and 2 dogs. Our idea of a crazy night out is going somewhere nice for dinner then coming home and watching a movie. We are simple life loving people who are crazy freaks for history, art and love. We were married very young and had kids even younger than that. We are relatable, easy going, driven to live the best life farm kids. We really want to help you get what you want from this life no matter now expensive or simple it is, because it’s your life and you deserve the very best.

We Are Ready To Help You

That’s a glimpse into who we are and if we are someone you think you would like to build your dreams with we would love to help. Send us an email and we can connect OR at We’re not afraid of a phone call or online meeting. You can get a chance to ask us questions and interview us to see if we are a good fit for you.

Dream Big my friends! We are rooting for ya!

Lots of love,

Vanessa and Tony

I know we hear the words ‘passive’ and ‘residual’ thrown around all the time, but do you know what passive income really means?

Passive Or Residual Income

According to Wikipedia:

Passive income is an income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it.

Here’s a great way to explain how passive/residual income works.

Remember this guy?


Elvis Presley is one of the most well known performers in the history of EVER! Elvis passed away in 1977 AND in 2015 he made $55 Million.


Clearly, he’s no longer performing or recording. But it’s the power of residual income that’s allowing his estate to continue to flourish 40 years later. Elvis essentially did a great job once, and it’s paying him/estate over and over and over again. That’s called royalty income or passive/residual income. AND THAT’S POWERFUL.

Why Would You Want A Passive Income?

Working for someone else is great! You clock in and out at a certain time, you can book holiday time, some employers offer sick days etc.

BUT…What happens if you get fired? Or the business closes? Do you have a back-up plan?

What if YOU own the business and your overhead is eating you out of business? I know when we owned a coffee shop, that cup of coffee only paid us once and if tomorrow I didn’t sell a cup of coffee we made nothing!

What's my superpower

Where To Find Passive Or Residual Income Streams

A really smart business man named Robert Kiyosaki understands the power of having another income working for you instead of you working for it!robert Kiyosaki

Also, I’m a BIG fan of his mindset!


Why Network or Multilevel Marketing Can Give You Passive Income



First of all, what’s really cool about network marketing and residual income is that you don’t have to have any crazy super power sales skills. Also, there is a very small investment to start and it’s duplicatable.

AND, duplication is POWERFUL!!! When you teach and help other amazing entrepreneurs to do exactly what you are doing, you can also benefit from their efforts and over time THAT could help everyone benefit in a really amazing way! That’s called leveraged income (income earned by other people’s efforts).

AND, YOU CAN BUILD YOUR BUSINESS RIGHT FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME, 24 hours a day whether you’re working at it or not. Because when you join a company that is in multiple countries around the world, your business keeps on growing while you are catching up on your beauty sleep. With the power of leveraged income everyone can win!

Furthermore, network marketing will always be here as long as people are looking to get a head in life, want time freedom or need additional income.

As a result, the freedom to have feasible choices for a side income other than real estate (with heavy investments), franchises (with heavy investments and time) or a traditional business (with heavy investments and time) are out there in the network marketing world. Just find a really great company with patented products (that work), exclusivity with their products, a fabulous compensation plan, a proven system that works and (this one is super important) a company with integrity and values and the world can literally be yours.

We’ve found ours!!

Drop us an email to chat!

Vanessa and Tony




Starting A Business



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?

Starting A Traditional 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.

Start Up Ain’t Cheap

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.


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.debbie


You Could Start a Franchise

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:

Tim Hortons

Franchise Cost:
-$480,000 to $510,000* plus all applicable taxes (this includes a drive-thru)
-Additional Working Capital:
(start-up costs) $50,000 (cash)
-At least $153,000 of the franchise cost must be unencumbered (cash or liquid assets) in
addition to the $50,000 working capital that must also be unencumbered. (so now that’s $203, 000 cash), but you’re allowed to borrow the rest.
*Not included in the cost of the franchise: the building and the land the building is on.
-Agreement is for 10 years with the option to renew for another 10 years after.
Ongoing payments, plus applicable tax:
-A weekly royalty fee of 4.5% of gross sales for the term of the license
-A monthly rental that is the greater of a fixed minimum rent or 8.5% of monthly
gross sales
-A monthly advertising levy of 4% of gross sales for the term of the license
Franchise Cost:

-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.

Ongoing fees:

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?

What’s Really Great About Network Marketing

Starting A Business For a Fraction Of The Cost

  • Unlike starting a traditional business, you can start a home based direct sales business for very little money.
  • Makes it easier for anyone to start their own business
  • Means initial investment can be recouped faster

YOU Decide When You Work

  • Take a sick day when you are sick, take a holiday whenever you chose, volunteer at your kid’s school. It’s all up to you how often you want to work.
  • Whether it’s spare time, part time or full time, the choice is totally up to you because YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOUR BUSINESS.

Take Your Business On The Road

  • Thinking about going on a holiday, you can take your business with you if you choose. Visiting family and friends father away, you can share your business adventure with them. Feel like sitting in your tub all afternoon, Hey! You can do your business from your bathroom. It’s your business, and with the wonderful advancements in technology, you can literally take your business with you any where you go. Business hours on your terms.

The Power Of The Internet

  • Unlike a store front business, you can wrap your arms around the globe with your direct sales business. You aren’t limited to your town or city, you can literally do business in other parts of the world from the comfort of your own home.
