Free Shipping! and Lavonne Wagonbach on Saturday AM Live!

Click Here to Listen to Vance and Lavonne have a greatly insightful chat.

"Speaking of those who have built businesses out of helping others, Lavonne Wagonbach is a powerhouse of people pleasing! As a mother of many and a grandmother of dozens, this lady is creating a legacy of life as she continues a tradition that she and her late husband started decades ago.

The greatest things that I've learned from Lavonne and Si are how to instantly show the power of these products and encourage folks to make the transition to our Customer Centric Business Model. If you're serious about sharing, her story will encourage you to share more."

"Free Shipping!

Well, not quite, but we’re knocking on Amazon’s door. It seems as if every company out there offers free shipping with a certain amount of products ordered, in a particular time frame, with a specific item ordered, etc. While Nikken hasn't created a blanket free shipping offering, they are making it very fun with weekly product offerings to obtain free shipping or one cent shipping.

Using tools or a third party resource can be vital in educating people as to the value of our products. I’ve found Annie Eng’s presentation on both Ciaga and Bergie really helpful.

By bundling Customer orders or encouraging people to order a little more than then normally would, we can easily compete with so many companies. Every parent I know is stocking up on school necessities so why not suggest a few back-to-school items that will keep their child healthy in the Petri dish of disease called a classroom. Jades, Immunity, Lactoferrin, KVB, and Omega's are essentials in our home. A 240 point order including a two-pack of Ciaga isn't that big when I make one phone call to a mom who's son is reaching his ideal weight with the KVB and so is she! I can add our regular items to theirs or encourage Em to order a few months worth.

It's all about Customer relationships which is what Nikken has been encouraging us to enjoy for the last few years. Check out this weeks blog about grape seed extract and share it with others. It's your business to help others!

Summer Sizzle and Gisela Stevens on Saturday AM Live!

Classy Lady Gisela Stevens
Click Here to Listen to Gisela Stevens tell her story of Health and Wealth over the last quarter century in Nikken. "Kicking off the A list of people in Nikken for more than a decade or two, Gisela Stevens is one that actually takes me back to my childhood. I was merely ten when I met her for the first time working a table for her and her late husband Steven B. Stevens. They were the guest speakers at an event my parents hosted here in Portland. She was captivating as she told one story after another with this larger than life smile on her face.

[Gisela states:] 'People ask me today why I'm in Nikken and the answer is so easy. The products changed my life in that first night and I will forever be grateful. What Steven was able to create with the business gave me the most incredible on-going source of income. And that is just as amazing as sleeping on that magnetic pad 25 years ago. I love this company and I always will!' "

Hydration is vital in warmer weather and yet it's just as important when the mercury starts to drop. Since over-hydration doesn't ever seem to plague anyone yet, I think we're not talking enough about the importance of water. Half our body weight in ounces is the magic formula. Take your current weight and divide it in half. If you weigh 120#'s, then 60 ounces or about two quarts should do the trick. Obviously more if you're sweating, but you get the idea.

Another formula that my friend Dr. Ted Lehman shared with me years ago that he always shared with his patients is this funny statement: If you're yellow, You ain't mellow! The ideal color of our urine should be clear. If it's yellow or even brown, then we are not hydrated. Sure, some supplements like the men's and women's formula can taint this within a few hours after swallowing, but the rule of thought still applies.

'I don't like the taste of water!' Or my favorite excuse, 'When I drink water I have to pee too much.' These are the most common excuses I hear and I know that there are so many more.

Secrets to Youth
Know anyone with these issues:
Back pain
Muscle cramps
Extra weight
Sore feet
Skin disorders
Body odor
Lack of mental clarity

The list is so much longer than these, but all of the above have been proven to lessen or even disappear when the person starts consuming more water.

Daughters are Wonderful!

So the next time someone asks about anything that Nikken may have for________. Please do them a huge favor by asking them how much water they drink. If you're really feeling bold, ask them again, but this time ask them to answer honestly. Often we're embarrassed and we lie. And what is the source of the water? Tap? Bottled? We might suggest the best water on the planet from a Waterfall or Sports Bottle. It's extremely affordable and it could very well could change their life and their lives of their entire family.

Summer Sizzle & Maximizing Perks on Saturday AM Live!

Summer Sizzle

We hit triple digits this week in Portland and have now gone 60 days without rain. Not at all a cause for panic yet, but we are loving aspects of our Nikken home, especially the Vital Balance for cool treats. And then there's the CM Cream & thermals for that accidental sun exposure.

Buy Now - You Can Pick Your Fav Flavor!
As we tend to wear less clothing in the warmer months, I am even more grateful of the fact that I can suggest the Vital Balance for an organic solution to weight management. Two scoops in water is the ideal way to go for me, but today I went a little overboard on pushing both the plant-based and protein envelopes. And when you do some of the crazy things I do during the day, having a high energy start is crucial.

Here's what I came up with:
Two scoops of chocolate KVB
One scoop of peanut butter powder
One scoop of chia seeds
One scoop of flax seed meal
One scoop of hemp seed hearts

Mix all of the above in the Nikken shaker cup with 10 ounces of PiMag water and you get 45 grams of plant protein! The result for me was a fast powerful meal to full my body the lasted well beyond any typical breakfast. Would I do this every day? No, but on a hot day like today, I'm grateful to beat the heat with my over-the-top shake.
