Do you remember the housing crisis of 2008? We sure do! Overnight, all the stock my husband, Chris, had acquired from nearly thirty years working for Fannie Mae became worthless overnight. That financial loss didn’t change our day-to-day life, thank God, but it sure did change our plans for the future.
We decided at that time to get serious about finding a safety net: An extra source of income that we could grow over time to replace the stock we lost and to be better prepared financially for Chris’s retirement. I had been a stay-at-home mom for 20 years and the youngest of our three children was in high school. We wanted a business that would allow me the flexibility to work from home and to continue our volunteer and ministry commitments. We were familiar with the business model of network marketing and did a lot of research to find a company that would not only align with our values but that also had a long history of integrity and innovation, products to promote health and wellness, a rewarding compensation plan and a support system to help us achieve our goals.
When we discovered Shaklee we knew it was the right fit. We jumped into our business in 2012 before we ever tried a single Shaklee product! We knew we were making a low-risk investment because of Shaklee’s incredible guarantee and their long history of creating healthier and better lives. In our first full year we qualified for two expense paid trips, a monthly car bonus and an extra $10,000 in Fast Track cash bonuses. Since then we have completely Shaklee-ized our lives and are grateful for the tremendous health benefits we’ve received.
We’ve had some ups and downs in our business but in fall 2017 we made the decision to focus on establishing a more streamlined process for sharing Shaklee and for helping our growing team reach their goals and dreams. Conversations are the basis for success in Shaklee so we encourage everyone on our team to take advantage of all the tools and materials Shaklee provides so they can focus on developing conversation skills rather than presentation skills. We want even the newest person to start earning an income as quickly as possible. Each week we have an online Zoom video presentation where team members can invite guests to hear about the Shaklee company, products and income potential. The presentation is followed by our EQUIPPED Team Training where we gather together virtually to share best practices, celebrate each other’s successes and learn the skills needed to advance toward our goals. Joining a supportive community is often one of the top reasons why people decide to start their own Shaklee business. It helps to know you’re in business for yourself but not by yourself! We call our team Full Life Partners and we are committed to helping each other and our Shaklee members live life to the full.
Shaklee provides the best health and wellness products possible along with professional marketing materials and cutting-edge technology. Our focus this year is to sharpen our skills in inviting people to take a look at all that Shaklee offers to help people live younger longer, look younger longer and love their life.
