I’ve had my share of investigating and participating in online opportunities.
Many have left me disillusioned for sure. The products were okay, but then the company went out of business or changed their mission.
I like stability in a company. Don’t you?
I dislike the hype that goes along with some online opportunities – the “urgency” ploy that you’ll make money right away, which is just not true.
I like honesty, integrity, and solid and dependable support.
I also like promoting affiliate products because you can choose what you like, use it, promote it, and it’s not tied to a company. But I really like promoting a company’s product if I use and love them enough to share with others.
Now that I’m in my 60’s I don’t have time to fuss around with businesses that do a lot of talking (hype) and leave their teams fending for themselves. And since I’m morphing myself into a healthier human being through major exercise programs at a gym – which has been transforming, physically and mentally, I want to immerse myself in those activities that are healthy and transformational.
In 2005 I came across a health and wellness company and became a customer. What impressed me the most was the stability of the company and how it came to be. It’s one of the pioneers, like AVON, that’s been around since the 1950’s.
In 2004 this company was up for sale. A young business man, Rodger Barnett, purchased it and turned it into the thriving company it is today while honoring its mission and principles of the original founder, Dr. Shaklee.
I haven’t come across many online companies that cherish nature as medicine, or the golden rule in building human relationships. Dr. Shaklee has inspired the company’s growth through his philosophy of life, the products, and it’s membership.
I met my Mentor, friend, and upline leader in 2005. We’re still friends today and in fact we do a radio show together, He has always been there, his leader has always been there. NEVER any pressure to build a business or recruit others. But always offered a supportive hand to help, listen, and understand the circumstances of one’s life. Always there, always patient to help you start a Shaklee business if interested. And always welcoming customers to the Shaklee product experience.
I am now a Shaklee Business Builder. It feels right after being a customer for so long. And the company philosophy I love because it blends with my nature of calm, wellness, and aging in a healthy way, mind, body, and spirit.
