Super Athlete Ann Brienza is Vance's Guest

Ann Brienza
Click Here to listen to this weeks call with Ann Brienza. Vance's computer died while typing up his weekly email, so, I will give a shout to this amazing lady. 

A couple of years ago it was my privilege to be the chauffeur for Ann and her niece's, from where they were staying in Sandy, Utah, to the Nikken Summit, in Layton, Utah. Each 40 minute trip was a delight. I learned a bunch from them, and hope to be able to be spend more quality time with them some day soon.

Why do I call her a super athlete? The reason is: she logged "124 slalom water ski days" last year, "22 downhill ski days up to surgery time so far this season". And she says,"Hope to get a few spring ski days in in April, if Dr. gives me a green light". Go Ann Go! I think you are a 'skiing testimony' of the Nikken's Wellness Solutions.

Wow, Ann, you must be made of Iron. I am so envious. I thought I skied a lot as a teenager, logging about 10 to 15 times a summer of slalom water skiing, and approximately 25 days of snow skiing, the winter I was a High School Senior, and a member of the Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol and could ski for free.

Seriously folks, you will love her recovery from surgery story. She thinks like I do, 'Don't Ask', just take almost everything you own, that has the name Nikken on it, to the hospital with you. Everyone there will be amazed at the speed of your recovery. All they can do is tell you; please, have your loved one take that "thing" home. Sounds like taking everything worked just fine, and it was great for growing your business. 

Have the GREATEST Spring everybody,

"Directionally" Driven

‘I’m the only 8th grader in the class with 11th & 12th graders and it feels funny.’ I remember the cute little girl saying this after her first day of walking from the middle school across campus to the high school. The dinner conversation was frightfully fun as she shared her apprehensions of being so young taking a calculus class. All we could do as parents was encourage her to stay the course because she obviously was given the gift that neither one of her parents had and that was to decipher numbers and formulas a few years ahead of her time.

 I kept thinking about that little girl this week and what her father said many times when he was her age, ‘I don’t wanna go any further than algebra and since no one really uses any of that stuff, I don’t think I need to’. While I may not use algebra in my day to day activities, we all get to learn new things every day if we’re directionally driven to live a better life. When an almost 50 year old company called Nikken decides to launch a beautiful new website and we want to discover, live, and share what they have to offer, it’s my responsibility to learn how to click around on that new website.

When all else fails, I can pick up the phone and call a lifeline. The beautiful people at Nikken can be reached at 800-669-8859 M-F, 7-5 PST. Or in my case, I reach out to that little girl and simply ask her how to learn to navigate a new website when it looks different than the one I used two weeks ago. ‘It’s really easy Daddy and all you gotta do is keep clicking’. And she says this while she’s doing five other things all at the same time because she’s directionally driven to help her dear old dad!

Tomorrow Morning on Saturday AM Live! Two weeks ago several of us experienced Awakening the Five Pillars and I watched people like Randy Rolfe take it all in. This Attorney/Nutritionist literally looked like the calm courtroom type of person who analyzes everything before they open their mouth to deliver the closing argument. Randy brings to Nikken a wealth of knowledge on so many subjects and her background lends wisdom beyond her years. I know we’re gonna be blessed by her story.

The call will commence at 7:00am PDT and the numbers to push are 480-660-2210, code 1536#. The great gal that answers won’t tell you to enter 1536#, so be sure to do this. If you miss it live, check out this conversation and so much more at:


Mother Knows Best and Barbara Bertucci on Saturday AM Live!

Mother Knows Best

The 50’s TV sitcom with the title ‘Father Knows Best’ featured weekly wisdom that has proved to be like the premise of Mr Rogers Neighborhood. While I would never discount the lessons that we learn from our male mentors, I was overcome with emotion this week as I knew Mom would celebrate her 80th birthday. The last few years have not been the easiest with a diagnosis of dementia, yet she continues to amaze all of us in her continued passions. What I’ve chosen to celebrate most about Mom is not the wisdom that she graciously shared, but the visionary example she modeled in so many areas in family, business, community, etc.

Growing up in a home where we always had a revolving door of short and long term residents, means that there was never a dull moment. What kept the sanity was a speech Mom would give every incoming guest. Whether it was a foster child or a single parent with their child, the three absolutes were always shared. So simple, yet so profound, she’d share:

1. Until your 18 and want to eat whatever you choose to, I will help you make wise nutrition choices.
2. Because we live in a country that provides education, you will go to school.
3. Since our family values include weekly participation in church, you will be part of that experience.

Pursuing the life of balance according to the 5 Pillars of Wellness, I know Mom was onto something.

While none of us are perfect by any means, having a foundation of absolutes like this is crucial to a successful life. Mom not only modeled it, she fostered an environment and encouraged the entire household to follow suite.

The Humans Being More experience is by far the best product Nikken has to offer. Now that it’s featured in the shopping cart, like Mom encouraged us to, I cannot think of a better education to keep everything else in check. Mom paid for my first HBM experience back in 1994 and I’ll admit I wasn’t all that thrilled in investing two whole days into this thing, yet what came out of that set my life on a course for success. Can I encourage you to do three things like she did for me? Register for the April 9th experience, invite a friend to join you, and then set yourself up to win that day by doing the basic things the night and morning of so it’s a win/win.

Mom has known best for my 53 years and Nikken has been sharing that same wisdom for nearly 50 years. Humans Being More is the catalyst for this.

One of Barbara's Life Cycle Plans
Tomorrow Morning on Saturday AM Live!

Barbara Bertucci is a mom who definitely models success is so many ways. What started out as what I like to call a typical product experience with a life altering issue developed into her world being turned right side up. Knowing that 80% of North Americans deal with a back issue, Nikken not only impacted Barb’s physical life, but every other area as well.

Here’s a short video you can share with a friend and invite them to listen:
