Power of Partnership and Mary Bowser/Gwen Carter on Saturday AM Live!

Mary, Barb and Gwen
Click Here to Listen to Mary Bowser and Gwen Carter this weeks on Saturday AM Live!

The Batman & Robin dynamic duo of Nikken award would have to be bestowed on my two friends Mary Bowser and Gwen Carter. These two ladies come from totally different backgrounds and yet compliment each other in amazing ways. When it comes to the power of a partner, Mary & Gwen bring a unique sense of teamwork to sharing Nikken. And what I feel completely embodies the Humans Being More spirit, neither profits from the other because they are only connected to Nikken sideways (crossline).

Power of Partnership

Third party credibility cannot be overstated. More often than not, when we see a movie, eat at a restaurant, purchase an item, or even make decisions for life, it’s because we were influenced by someone or something. In Nikken we stress the importance of a 3-way call and yet in the last decade this has taken on a new form because of the Internet. Almost daily I’m introduced to something that usually takes me back to YouTube.

In the past few weeks we have heard more about the subject of grounding than any other technology that Nikken has introduced since I’ve been with the company(26 years). The stories are all over the page and yet a seven minute video is really what opened my eyes to the validity of it.

Now truth be told, I’ve heard about grounding or earthing for years, but I really had no interest in it because it was out of my focus of Nikken. After all, why should I get excited about something that I’ll have to send folks elsewhere to get it. I grow weary of telling people about Costco, IKEA, etc. when those companies won’t compensate me for it. Now don’t get me wrong, I pay it forward all the time because it’s the right thing to do, but Nikken is a business that has continually rewarded our family in too many ways.

Back to grounding! Another great partner is the book that has been flying off the shelf at Amazon or any other source. ‘Earthing: The most important health discovery ever!’ Rather than wait till the KenkoGround arrives, we have several people who are placing orders for customers based on loaning this book to them for a few days. Imagine that! Using a book to get customers to buy the product for themselves.

And coming full circle back to the power of partnership. Whatever we do to leverage something or someone else to validate Nikken’s products will be a huge boost for us. After all, there is no such thing to a Lone Ranger in anything. Every great person throughout history has always had a partner or something they’ve leveraged for their success. I just spoke with a customer from years ago that I’d lost contact with. When asked if he’d watch a seven minute video, he responded with, ‘Absolutely! That could be just the thing for my friend.’

Waking up being thankful during Thanksgiving weekend is what you’re supposed to do, but on Sunday all I wanted to do was crawl into the wood stove so I could get warm followed by step outside in the 40 mph cold wind to chill my burning body. Yep, whatever Emmy had on Thanksgiving Day was now deeply embedded into me. And what’s nuts is she’s the non-affectionate daughter so it’s not like I even touched her.

While people like Roger Drummer, Dave Balzer, Steven B Stevens, Dennis Bryant & others don’t have the letters of MD after their names, I have a collection of remedies that they’ve passed onto me that not only make sense, BUT THEY WORK!

While we could write pages containing all the Nikken methods for getting the most out of these amazing products, the biggest key is to use the common sense solution method. Getting the proper sleep ON the Naturest(not in a chair), drinking half our body weight in ounces of PiMag water daily, using the nutritionals for maintenance, and then of course... all the daytime energy products.

But when you feel like crud, sound like a frog, lose your appetite, have a head full of some scientific experiment and you hurt all over, it’s time to bring out the big guns!

Pouring a Lactoferrin under my tongue followed by 1/2 teaspoon of Jades every four to six hours may seem extreme, but I know it works. The four men I mentioned above modeled this type of behavior and so for me it’s now just common sense. And the results? Within 48 hours I was a completely transformed person!"

Gratefulness and Kenko Ground News on Saturday AM Live!

Suzanne, Gary and Auntie Ann
Click Here to Listen to this Weeks Call about the KenkoGround.
"For Suzanne and Ann, the subject of grounding is not necessarily a topic of their expertise, but when you have a gathering of people who get to touch, use, and enjoy the benefits of the Kenko Ground, then they just might have something worthwhile to share. The stories are varied and all over the page, but it’s the spirit behind what these three experienced that all of us can benefit from."

"So Incredibly Grateful

I had just taken my first bite of Thanksgiving breakfast when my pager buzzed indicating that we had an emergency. Over the years when people discover that I’m a volunteer firefighter, they usually ask if we have shifts. My response of yes, it’s a shift of 365, 24/7, usually renders a response of amazement.

That’s the thing about living a life of gratefulness. We don’t get the opportunity of taking a shift. God continues to ask us to live a life of thankfulness as we look forward to the next best opportunity. These next steps or duties may not appear to be fun or something a child would get excited about, but to the person who’s constantly looking for opportunities to serve, it’s simply the right thing to do.

The Humans Being More spirit is what compels people to share Nikken. Sure, there’s always a reward in the end, but I truly believe it’s because of a grateful spirit that we continue sharing these products and this company with others. We’re grateful of what we’ve experienced and we know that the results are something worth passing on.

It’s probably just a coincidence that on turkey day, our patient’s last name was Turkington, but the words of the grandma as we exited her home were exactly what we as Nikkenites hear every time another person encounters this gift of wellness…. Thank You."

MSI's and Dr Heather Loucks (Q&A) on Saturday AM Live!

Click Here to Listen to This Weeks Call with Dr. Heather Loucks.

"Dr. Heather Loucks is a master guru at numerous things and when she was a guest a few weeks ago, I could sense that there were several questions that I failed to ask of her. As a Naturopathic Physician, what would she suggest for certain issues? What’s her favorite go to product of introduction? How does she feel about the new Kenko Ground? There are lots that I can think of, but rather than me ask the questions, this will be an open line format for everyone to go for it."

I first heard the term Multiple Sources of Income from my mentor, ‘voice of God’ friend, and business partner Steven B Stevens. He would introduce people to the business side of Nikken by sharing that this industry allows us to invest into people and then in turn, they can become another source of residual income for us in the future. I told a friend yesterday that my parents have become millionaires several times over during their quarter century with Nikken because of this concept.

Today, there are even more ways to earn with Nikken, and just like any investment strategy, it takes concentrated effort, timing, and follow up. Of course there are several others steps that I’m sure business guru’s will tell us, but those who seem to be successful in Nikken continue doing these same things over and over and over again. Introduce people to Nikken, let them make a decision what program(Customer or Consultant) will best suite their needs, and then continue to support them. Two percentages that I share regularly are what I call the 91/71 principle. Nikken discovered that 91% of people simply want these amazing products, but statistics prove that 71% of Americans are always looking for a way to generate extra income.
When asked, Dennis Williams will continually say that freedom is his favorite Nikken product. The freedom to live a life that few do because they yield control to someone else. Yielding control of their bodies to doctors who continually guess at a treatment. Yielding their minds to whatever happens to come on the radio or screen. Yielding their families to any distractions or drama. Yielding their finances to more month than money. And yielding the society around them to others who may not share the same values.

Nancy Clyde taught me a new phrase to describe one of the potential MSI’s that we have with Nikken. When sharing her elevator speech, she tells her product experience and then always finishes with this little teaser: ‘And if you’re open to a business opportunity, we get money in the bank every Friday’.

Think about the MSI’s that you have in your life with Nikken. Are we tapping into them? While we don’t look at people as dollar signs, we have to look at them as an opportunity to expand wellness.

And just for humor sake, I shared one of our MSI’s with three of my fellow firefighters the other evening at a dinner. I was shocked that they’d never seen it and even more shocked as they continued to view it over and over again. I almost had to tell them to stop because it was getting embarrassing and I honestly thought they were going to wet themselves. This Wednesday was the four year anniversary of when I slipped on the ice and as of last week, my little mishap has generated over $12,000 for our family. Not really Nikken related, but I was wearing my mStrides and they definitely provided the agility to keep me from getting injured. And if I can earn money from people laughing at an 11 second investment of my time, I’m all for it!

"Snapshots from San Antonio or Tips from Toronto is one way to describe literally a dozen or more conversations I’ve had with people over the last few weeks who attended one of these two events. Three weeks ago we heard from an all-star group of ladies about the Humans Being More experience up north, now we get to hear about the Mission that took place in the Lone Star State.

Can you just feel it?

In a few weeks the annual Rogers tradition will commence. They arrive in the mail, get torn open, read and looked over, and then either taped to the fridge or placed in the Christmas card box. During the 23 years of this procedure, there is still one card that is at the top of my list as my all-time favorite. A little girl, dressed in winter clothes complete with knitted hat, scarf, and gloves graces the outside of the card. She’s clutching a gift-wrapped box with the most anticipated grin on her face that a child could ever have. These five words appear in a beautiful text below her photo. Inside the card are just two words… It’s Coming!

With everything I’ve read, seen, heard, and studied over the last few years about the topic of grounding or earthing, I feel exactly the same as this little girl on that card. I just looked at Amazon and grounding pads, sheets, blankets, etc. are all over the page as far as price, construction, and functionality. It’s an absolutely HUGE market that we’re about to launch into.

After watching this seven minute video passed onto me by my friend Dee, I was even more compelled to delve a little deeper.

Could it be that simple? Standing on the ground barefoot or touching a tree. Yes, it can, but as the frost lays on the ground today, I’m not so sure I want to run through the yard without my Nikken socks, insoles, and shoes. Or find a really nice tree to hug. Fortunately, in a few days all I have to do is expose my hands or feet (or any other skin) to the Kenko Ground for a few minutes.

The stories I’m hearing about this small pad are all over the page. From better sleep, to nagging aches & pains, clinical depression to extreme child behavior issues, this one product is making an impact.

As we think about Christmas gifts for ourselves or something to warm us up a bit heading into the cooler time of year, consider Nikken’s Kenko Ground. Ours should arrive in a couple weeks and I’m beyond anxious to start using it and even more, I’m thrilled to be able to open peoples eyes to instant results with a product that’s gaining a lot of attention world wide. Heck yah! I can just feel it!"

Ground breaking. Ground Floor. From the ground up.

Three uses of the word ground that keep going round and round in my head. If you haven’t heard the latest buzz yet, then here is my take on it with a few pieces of intel that I’ve robbed from people like Dave Johnson and Brody Craney. This product is awesome and I cannot wait to use ours when it arrives!!!

There was a fantastic call with Randy Rolfe and Dave Johnson discussing the KenkoGround pad and its potential benefits.

Access the call via:

'Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.' – Walt Whitman.

The Kenko Ground Pad is available for preorder now for $129 retail. The product is expected to ship sometime in November. Place your order quickly as there appears to be a large demand which could create a back order situation. The early bird gets the worm…earlier!

You get what you pay for is a phrase that our family uses a lot. When I first heard about grounding blankets it was from a few friends who had paid $5000 to $7000. Now of course this is a full blanket that not only produces the same effects as the Kenko Ground, it also provides a warm cuddling environment much like that of a throw. So I guess that’s why it’s so expensive. I really don’t know because I’ve not done the research. But just like the expensive water filtration devices that electrocute the water to provide the filtration benefits as our $327 Waterfall, these units are highly priced and only a select few can afford them. The Kenko Ground is priced so the MASSES can afford it.

One last example…. One of my fellow firefighters drives a VW. While I’m not a car guy at all, I know that it felt like I was riding in an F-19 fighter jet when I sat in the passenger seat. I told Nelson that it felt like a Mercedes or BMW! His response was, ‘I know, at a fraction of the cost’.

According to Dr Mercola:

'When you ground to the electron-enriched Earth, an improved balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system occurs.'

'Being grounded cuts inflammation by thinning your blood and infusing your body with negatively charged ion.'

'To take advantage of grounding indoors, your best bet is to use a grounding pad to sleep, stand barefoot or sit on.'

'Grounding may be one of the most important overlooked factors in public health. When grounding is restored, many people report significant improvement in a wide range of ailments.'

[I suggest you] Google 'earthing', 'grounding,' 'health benefits of grounding pads' etc. You will learn a ton. Our product is well priced, superior construction and the 20% silver will make it a better conductor than anything I’ve seen on the market.

There is a wealth of intel out there about the power of grounding technology (Nikken makes no specific health claims). Have some fun and discover for yourself. But don’t wait to hear stories from others who have enjoyed the amazing benefits. Buy yourself an early Christmas gift and create your own story. Who knows, you could impact a few other lives with this amazing new technology.

Michele Kowalchuk already has a KenkoGround pad and is enjoying amazing experiences. She is the guest on a live webinar this Saturday, Oct 27th at 8am pacific / 11am eastern. Pass this on!

Tools and Dr David Jones on Saturday AM Live!

Click here to Listen to this weeks call.

Download New Kenko Ground Flyer

" 'Dr' David Jones (not really a doctor) gave me one of the greatest tools that a friend could share so that I could take care of the temple that God gave to me. I often refer to him as a doctor because the advice he’s passed onto me has completely changed the way I think about my physical body. And as I learned from Dennis Williams, if I don’t take care of this body, where am I going to live?

David has been a physical trainer for more than three decades. Time Under Tension or TUT is just one of the things that he teaches with his Muscle Activation Techniques. And like many of the people who share Nikken, David’s life journey is the result of his own experience, not just theory or from a textbook. Being a college football linebacker he learned real quickly that tools are only good when they’re actually used. These tools along with a few choice words allow David to help people discover exactly how balance can be achieved."

" 'Tools'

Both my grandfathers were in the construction industry. Grandpa Rogers started installing sheet metal gutters on weekends while working at a feed/building materials store. Contractors needed someone who knew how to hang gutters so grandpa (and dad) spent most Saturday’s and Sunday’s on roofs. Within a few months he had to give notice at the feed store because he had so much work. Grandpa Schimpf was a finish carpenter who was never without work due to the reputation he had for detail. Anything that could be built with wood and finished to a thing of beauty was 2nd nature to him.

These men taught me the value of tools. Dad used to always say that you can build a house with a hammer and a hand saw or that same house with a nail gun and a circular saw. Both sets of tools will get the job done, but the latter two will produce that house faster and with more accuracy.

Connecting people with Nikken with good tools is great, but with great tools its so much better. Or as Marty Jeffery taught me in lesson nine of the iCan Attitude course, ‘Tools do not work - if you don’t use them. No amount of thinking or intent will see your business succeed. Only right action, based on customer-centric principles will get us the long-term results.’

The Internet has redefined how we connect people to Nikken, but ultimately it’s still about using any tool to transfer information to open a persons mind to the possibility of a result with a Nikken solution. Yeah, that was a mouthful I know, but think about it for a second. We didn’t get a product result until we accepted the fact that something was going to happen. When we connect a person to Nikken’s philosophies, then the results are almost guaranteed.

So far, Brody Craney has recorded five excellent seminars on five different products. If you cannot catch this great tool live, then the recordings are just a phone call away. In a culture that we’re so busy and Internet/Data connections aren’t always reliable, this simple tool is truly wonderful. Simply punch the phone number, enter the access code, and then select the recording #. My friend Diane Koch shared with the iCan group that she just sold a Waterfall to a Customer after months of leg work who listened to Brody’s call on the Sports Bottle.
