Read Vance's Tip of the Week

|Order From Herb or Focus On Growth|
Here’s an example:
Sure, one could say that this is self-promoting and has nothing to do with Nikken, but I would beg to differ. Last week a reporter from a small newspaper interviewed a few of us from our volunteer fire department for a follow up story about the Eagle Creek fire that forced our family from our home last September. As with any news story, you never know until it’s printed what the angle will be and what quotes will get included or deleted.

I have used this story throughout the week as a way of reaching out to folks with short notes like, ‘your friend made the news’ or ‘your neighbor is getting attention again and this time it’s not because he slipped on his driveway’. After they read the article and respond favorably, then I make contact via text or phone to ask them if they’d like to know more about how I actually kept the rigorous schedule of a forest firefighter at my age. The response has been fairly positive.
Bottom line is this…. When we find timely articles or stories that support our pursuit of the 5 Pillars of Health, we need to share them with folks. Not all news is negative and even when it is, we can bend it to support the benefits of what Nikken has given us. So even if you’re not a Nikken Newsmaker, we can use the news to share Nikken!
