"I remember reading a book eight years ago while we were in Ethiopia with the subtitle of ‘Meeting your neighbors one siren at a time’. It was written by a professional poet who happen to land in a small town and decided to join the volunteer fire dept. The book became a page turner because I gleaned so much as to how to engage people in different settings.

Epitomize Nikken Health and Beauty 
 Bud Davis is a friend who I don’t see very often other than at the post office or different community functions. Yesterday he was having trouble breathing so his wife called 911 and I was privileged to be one of the first responders to assist. What made the journey way up Larch Mountain Road so worth it was when we were loading him into the ambulance and he gave me this look as if to say something. I came closer only to be fully embraced in his arms as he said, ‘Thank you for coming to see me again’.

Nikken's 40th Birthday Party
Here is a guy who is 93 years young and still took the few seconds to thank me for doing what I am trained to do. What a great way to start the day!!!

This week marked the 26th year of me being introduced to Nikken and I can not even count the times that I’ve had people thank us for introducing them to this wonderful company. Not everyone will receive it, but it’s so worth it to find the ones that will open up their arms and minds to a gift. It’s not really hard either, its just a matter of figuring out how to engage people enough to listen. And when we do, they’ll tell us where it hurts."

Renew or Not? and Al Thornton on Saturday AM Live!

Sandra and Al Thornton
Click Hear to Listen to this Weeks Call.

Our discussion about Nikken Wellness or the 18 amazing nutritional products continues tomorrow with a guest who I feel not only knows his stuff, but knows how to help others discover EXACTLY what their bodies need. Al and Sandra Thornton have continued to blow me away with their simple demonstrative methods of introducing people to the benefits of proper nutrients. Al’s background in marketing helps make him just the person I go to when showing people how great Nikken’s supplements are for us. If you’ve been looking for a little razzle/dazzle in your Nikken intro, I do hope you’ll catch this conversation.

" 'To renew or not to renew, that is the question'

As I click the yellow notice at the top of the Nikken website to renew for the 25th time since I joined Nikken on December 2nd, 1992, I have to ask the question that I often do when renewing any subscription, membership, or pay an annual fee… Is it worth it?

Here’s the short and skinny of why I continue to renew our Nikken Consultantship. BECAUSE I’M IN THIS TO IMPACT LIVES BOTH PHYSICALLY AND FINANCIALLY! Anyone who’s not interested in the business of Nikken, should not renew or even join as a Consultant. It’s a waste of time and money.

Let me explain why I’m so strong on this issue. Registering a person as a Consultant just to get a discount is a waste of $99 and it defeats the benefits of our amazing compensation plan, especially the new weekly pay-outs from Customer orders. And when it comes to Autoship (which is something that everyone can benefit from) it simply doesn’t pencil out. A Customer would have to spend $2000 in their first year on Autoship orders to offset the $99 because they automatically receive a 25% discount on all the consumables when ordered via Autoship.

Here’s another example that seems to be a topic of most or our current culture. Amazon Prime. This annual membership costs $100 and gets you free shipping on most items. If you order a lot, then it pays for itself. If you don’t, then it doesn’t. And if you live in a remote area where you cannot get cable, but have Internet, then there are lots of movies you get included with this service. So essentially, it could even eliminate the cost of cable or a satellite dish.

So when it comes to renewing our Consultantship, I know why we do it. I encourage you as a Consultant to remember why you joined. If that why doesn’t make you cry, then consider being a Customer or think about re-launching that why. But please, don’t renew simply because you think you’re saving some money. Renew to changes lives both physically and financially. After all, those are the two pillars where most people are needing a little improvement in."

" 'An Apple a Day…'

One of the earliest goal-setting quotes I remember hearing as a teenager was simply this: ‘Failing to plan is planning to fail’. While most would associate this with tasks or dreams, it’s one of the basic fundamentals of diet that our family has used to maintain healthy bodies.

As we head into the cooler months and the thought of white stuff falling from the sky, our bodies need an extra boost to keep them in proper working order. Long sleeves, hats, and warmer clothing is standard, but sometimes we forget that a few basic tweaks in our nutritional habits will yield big results and keep us away from the doctor.

Nikken Wellness is just that. Wellness via Nikken! While making healthy food choices is elementary, adding a few choice nutritional products can be the key to a strong immune system and preventing some of the normal ickiness that everyone seems to think is normal during the winter months.

As Consultants or Customers, taking advantage of Autoship is the ideal way to get a few nutritional products coming every month with big savings for our wallet. Our family has been using this wonderful method of ordering since before we were a family and I know that the money we have invested has saved us thousands on the long end. And kept us out of the doctors office!
So if you don’t have access to a great organic apple every day, look into adding a few basic core supplements to your routine. Jades and Immunity have been staples in our home for almost two decades now. I’d suggest starting there and then build in the areas of need. Again, Autoship is the way to go!

Click Here to Listen to this Weeks Saturday AM Live about Nikken's Wellness Solutions Part 1.

While I thought we could pull it off in one session, after reviewing the greatness of Nikken Wellness or our fabulous nutritional products, it would be rather challenging to cover all 18 of them in one conference call. We’ll discuss the Features, Advantages and Benefits or FAB of each item starting with my favorite Jade GreenZymes and continuing down the shopping cart. Please be ready to contribute your favorite experience with each item as testimonies are often more interesting than factual information.

Looking forward to exploring Nikken Wellness with you tomorrow!

Crossing the half-century mark

Two days after my 50th birthday I received an invitation to join AARP. WOW! I’ve finally arrived was my first thought and then I did a little more digging only to discover the real perks to being in my 50’s don’t really kick in till I’m 55. Bummer! Now I have to wait another five years.

After drinking all that Free Coffee
Do ya think he was Wired
A friend told me yesterday that 20 years ago he almost joined Nikken. The more we conversed the more he started sharing physical issues that I literally had to bite my tongue to avoid a response. ‘I suppose you’re gonna tell me that Nikken has a solution for this eh?’, was his question as I simply smiled. When he was ready to hear I simply shared my elevator speech about me being 24 with a major back issue and how these amazing products enable me to do what I do today with very few limitations.

Regardless of our age or what condition our body may be in, we can always improve them by aligning ourselves with earth energies and these wonderful concepts called the 5 Pillars of Health.

My friend may have the financial pillar dialed in, but what I found interesting was the two cups of coffee he had sitting on the kitchen counter and a third being brewed in the French press. ‘Now I know your secret’, I said to him and simply smiled.

Maybe Stacy Will Tell Us
Before we departed ways, I asked for the best method for him to review two short videos and obtained his cell #. I made sure he’d actually watch them if I texted them to which he smiled and said, ‘I’d like those very much as I’ve been wondering what life would be like today had I made a different decision 20 years ago’.

And while I know I could leverage 26 years of Nikken experience and how I am in better physical shape at 50 than I was at 24, I find it much easier to leverage tools like these:

Back-to-School and Nikken 101 on Saturday AM Live!

Click Here to Listen to this Weeks Saturday AM Live Call.

"As Nikken unveiled a few major changes a few weeks ago, it typically takes us some time AND practical application to really grasp the magnitude of these changes. The Packs, new Sports bottle, how we get paid weekly & monthly, and every order counting for everything are some of the things we’re going to learn about. While I’ve never claimed to be a teacher of vast wisdom, I think together we can learn a few more things to really understand what Nikken’s given us. This will be a two part ‘Back-to-School’ call with changes this weekend and nutritional highlights next weekend."

" 'Back-to-School'

Last night at the orientation for the new school that our youngest daughter Addi will be attending this year I experienced intel overload with a barrage of information that was almost foreign to my educational background. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I’d been awake since 2:46am, but that’s a story for another time.

What I heard loud and clear without it ever being stated was that this new school to us has a rich history of absolutes where as the school system I grew up with has evolved into more of a touchy-feely academic classroom. Don’t get me wrong, some kids thrive in an emotionally driven experience, and yet others want absolutes.

The one absolute that seemed to get the most attention was this personal device called a cell phone. In this school, it’s simply not allowed. Period! While school is in session, from 8-3, a cell phone cannot be on a students body or in their hand. I couldn’t believe my ears! In a culture that we don’t experience vacations anymore, but take selfies of each moment to post on social media for the world to see, how could a school implement a rule and take away such a necessary tool of life?

In all seriousness, I see Nikken’s history very much the same as this school’s history. Almost the same age, Nikken has established some absolute truths to enable our bodies to harness what God put in nature so that we can live full lives. All these amazing technologies can be used everyday IF we’ll accept the absolute fact that the earth’s energy works. We really don’t even have to believe it or understand it, just put our bodies into that environment.

For me, a back-to-school experience is returning to a truth that is absolute fact. A student can learn when they accept the fact of focused attention on a teacher WITHOUT the distraction of a cell phone. No excuses. No justifications. And no whining. My body will heal itself when I expose it to super cool products made from energy forms from the earth. Nikken technologies continue this everyday in so many ways.
