Shaklee Dream Plan 2010

Cars. Cash. Trips. Dreams

Shaklee introduced the Dream Plan 2010 at the 2010 Anaheim Global Conference. There are significant new opportunities to earn cash, get a car, and go on all-expense paid trips. Of course it will take time, work, and planning, but this is a program that can actually pay off for the right people.

Live the Dream

With all the tough news about the economy, most of us have scaled back our expectations for what we can earn—and even what kind of life we can have. We’ve given up our hopes for ourselves and, in some cases, even what we hope for our children.

Shaklee offers you the chance to reclaim your hopes and dreams for the future while making a difference in the lives of your family and your communities—all while earning cash, even a career income, as well as cars, trips, and other rewards!

Cash

Earn money when you share Shaklee products with others and when they join you in building a new Shaklee business.

Cars

As you share with more and more people and grow your customer base, you can reach Business Leader status. When you help one other person do the same, and increase your volume, you become eligible

to earn a monthly car payment!

Trips

Throughout the year, you’ll be assigned points for activities that grow your business—such as sponsoring new business partners. When you earn enough points, you’ll earn fabulous trips to exotic

locations—with expenses paid by Shaklee!

Share the Dream.

Now that you’re ready to dream, it’s time to make your dreams a reality. The path to achieving your dreams in Shaklee is simple.

Step 1:

Identify at least three people who want to build a global home-based business by sponsoring as a GOLD Ambassador with the purchase of a Mission PAK.

Step 2:

In the process, find at least 10 people who will want to sign up as consumer Members to purchase Shaklee products.

Step 3:

Every time you advance in rank, repeat the process! Now you’re building a team, earning up-front cash, creating residual income, and continuing to advance—and now the fun begins!

Building a Shaklee business puts you in the driver’s seat! When you decide to build a Shaklee business, you control the pace at which you grow and you reap the rewards for your hard work and commitment!

The Shaklee Bonus Car Program

Let Shaklee Put You in the Driver’s Seat!

Are you driving the car of your dreams? It’s possible with Shaklee! When you build a Shaklee business and grow to higher levels of Leadership while accumulating higher volumes of product sales, Shaklee will reward you with progressively larger car payments toward your very own new car!

Go Green and Get More. Qualify for a higher car payment if you choose a hybrid vehicle.

Trips

Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, Bahamas

Nov. 2–7, 2011

Build your new Shaklee business and you can earn your passage to the mystical Atlantis Resort for five days of azure-colored waters, tropical breezes, and sumptuous surroundings!

Four Seasons Resort, Bora Bora

Sept. 18-25, 2011

Top Achievers Club International 2011 Getaway Exotic.

10 Things I Learned at the Anaheim Shaklee Global Conference

Shaklee Global Conference 2010

Shaklee Anaheim Global Conference 2010

Cars, cash, trips, and dreams.

My first Shaklee Global Conference

I just returned from my first Shaklee Global Conference. What a great event. There were so many friendly, positive, successful people all in one place – thousand of them!

10 things I learned at the Conference:

  1. Shaklee is a family.

    If a family can be defined as an association of people who share common beliefs or activities, then Shaklee definitely qualifies. Everyone I met had goals, experiences, and aspirations that I can identify with. I felt like I belonged.

  2. I belong to an amazing group.

    I met many of the successful business leaders in the same group to which I belong. There were a few familiar faces, but it was an opportunity to become acquainted with people I had only heard about before. It was like a family within a family.

  3. It is more fun being around positive people than negative ones.

    Everyone was upbeat, interested in learning new things, and excited about the changes in Shaklee. People were easy to talk with, genuinely interested in me and my Shaklee story, and were excited about continuing to build their business.

  4. Shaklee continues to improve the business opportunity.

    The Dream Plan announced by Shaklee is an exciting improvement to an already great opportunity. I don’t have years of experience to make comparisons with, but the Shaklee team seemed to “wow” everyone I talked to. Even the most seasoned veterans were telling me this was one of the most significant program changes they have ever seen.

  5. Shaklee continues to improve the product line.

    The new Fiber Advantage Bars, Get Clean Water filtration system, the FDA approved Cholesterol Reduction Complex, and Vita-D3 are incredible new products that will make people more healthy – and should be easy to use to impress new and existing customers.

  6. Shaklee people want to help each other.

    I would sit down at any table and start talking to people and quickly have things to talk about and discover many things I could learn. No one was “hoarding” their secrets to success – they wanted everyone to succeed.

  7. Success brings recognition as well as rewards.

    The top leaders were very well rewarded – highlighted by the line of new Mercedes Hybrid automobiles handed out. But success was recognized and rewarded at all levels, giving everyone encouragement to continue building their business.

  8. Shaklee International is a growing and exciting business.

    All of the international teams were well represented and recognized. The future of Shaklee Global is very bright, with a good foundation to build upon.

  9. Shaklee knows how to put on a great event.

    The venue, organization, and presentations were extremely professional. It made me feel like I was part of an organization that was confident and knew what they were doing.

  10. Enthusiasm is contagious.

    It would be difficult to come away from the Global Conference and not be impressed with Shaklee – both the people and the opportunity. Success breeds success. I can only imagine the sales volume the company is going to experience in the next few weeks!

Also the underlying theme of the event was that no one gets to be successful by luck or connections. It is based on work, hard work. And this experience makes me – and I am sure many others – want to get busy right away. I want to be on that stage next year!

If you were at the Conference, say hi and leave your comments below. I want to stay in contact.

10 Reasons Why Fitness Instructors Can be Successful in Building a Shaklee Business

Shaklee provides an opportunity for many different people to build a successful business to achieve financial independence. But fitness instructors come to the program with several advantages compared with other professionals and experienced business leaders.

What are these advantages for fitness trainers?

1. They are typically already entrepreneurs.

Most fitness instructors are already entrepreneurs – even the ones working at large gyms. They are successful if they develop a large group of repeat clients and it is up to them to encourage people to continue with the program.  There are also many fitness professionals who work on their own without the structure of an established gym.  These people are true entrepreneurs if they are successful in developing their own business.

2. They work with people who want to improve their lives.

Clients at a gym are interested in developing a better, healthier lifestyle. They may be interested in losing weight or gaining muscle mass and these are some of the best quality products Shaklee offers. The Cinch Inch program is designed to help people lose weight and not sacrifice lean muscle mass. These gym-goers are also good customers for vitamin and nutritional supplements to maintain their health and immune system. Vivix Anti-Aging Formula is one of the company’s top sellers

3. Their clients are usually health conscience

Gym customers are generally healthy and want to stay that way. The healthy Shaklee products are the type of merchandise that anyone can feel good about promoting and fitness instructors will see that importance. Shaklee’s product line includes healthy vitamin supplements, weight management, green living at home, and healthy beauty products.

4. They are familiar with the types of products Shaklee offers

Talk to a fitness counselor and they will already know the language and terminology of the healthy products offered. They know how a person can lose weight. And how a person can increase their muscle mass.  If the instructor knows his business and is successful he or she will come to the program with more knowledge than almost any Independent Distributor so it won’t take long to become familiar with the program.

5. They are smart, educated, energetic, and optimistic.

The younger – and older – generation of fitness instructors is highly educated. The stereotype of the dumb jock doesn’t describe them. They are smart and want to use their training and skills to build a successful career. These entrepreneurs in particular will see that the Shaklee program can provide an opportunity to be rewarded for their hard work.

Any selling program involves a certain level of rejection. Optimistic instructors energy and natural optimism gives them a resilience others may not have. They can look at the bigger picture over the long run and see that a few “no’s” today can be offset by the potential rewards from the “yes’s”.

6. They have a level of authority on health related issues and products

When a client starts working with a professional instructor they look up to them as being experts in how to live a healthy life. This authority can be useful when presenting the Shaklee product line.  And because the nutritional supplements and other products offered are of the highest quality, they know that they won’t be steering their clients wrong.

7. They appreciate the low cost of investment

Even successful trainers at the gym can be looking for programs to join that don’t take a large investment. Shaklee is a perfect fit with an initial investment of only $349 needed to get them into the program.

8. Can Work Part-Time and Still Be Successful

Many fitness trainers don’t have the time to get started in a full time business. Most are already working with clients. With Shaklee they can take advantage of being able to work at their own pace and still be successful. And as with any new entrepreneurial project, the reward will be directly related to the time and effort invested.

9. Looking for Alternative Employment in the Current Economy

No one has to tell any member of the work force how tough it can be to keep a job in the current economy. But by creating a job by starting a Shaklee business it will be possible to eliminate that problem. Shaklee has exceeded its sales goals in each of the past 6 recessions and has proven that it doesn’t take a strong economy to be successful.

10. They are good networkers

Trainers know other trainers. So they already have the opportunity to develop other potential distributors.  Once they become successful and their co-workers see the benefits, it will be easy to pass along the opportunity.

5 Steps for Online Marketing Success

Take Something You Like and Make it Your Own.

This can be a powerful tool when building any business. There are many marketing programs, techniques, and processes that can be implemented to grow your online business. But one key to success is to build on something you like.

Traditional direct marketing has always been based on the concept of checking out what the competition is up to. A good direct marketer will be interested in seeing what others are doing and if something shows up over and over, you can be assured that it works. The next step is to adapt your marketing program to use that information to build your own business.

For example, if you see your competition using online webinars to build their business, then it is worth checking out. If they are using Google AdWords to beat you to the customers first, then it is going be valuable for you to learn more about online search marketing. And if you see a similar program using Twitter to reach out, you should also see if Twitter can work for your business.

Do you just copy someone else’s program? Is that okay to do?

Exactly copying the online marketing program that someone else has developed rarely meets your needs. Maybe they are trying to attract a different audience. Maybe their products are different than yours. Or maybe they have just duplicated someone else’s program in hopes that it works for them.

Five Steps for Online Marketing Success

1. Identify the Competition.

You should already know who your online competition is. If not start researching now. See who is appearing everywhere online marketing the same type of products and services. And make sure you have found the entrepreneurs or businesses that are successful to study.

2. List the ten things you think make them successful.

Of course there are going to be many things that a successful business – online or offline – will be doing to promote their business. But rather than trying to figure out everything just concentrate on the top ten things that you have determined to be their keys to success. And see if these programs are used by more than one successful competitor.

3. Narrow that list to the top three things that you would like to be doing.

Your most valuable asset is time. And since you can’t be doing everything, you should focus on the three things that you feel are productive and that you would like to be doing. If they are using Facebook and you like spending time there, put that on your list. If they are using Craigslist.org ads but you don’t like all that detail work, leave it off.

4. Map out a plan on how you can start using those three techniques yourself.

You already know your products and services; your strengths and weaknesses; and use that information and your imagination to determine how you can apply these proven methods to your business. Create your map using a timeline showing what you can do this week, this month, and this year.  Be as detailed as possible in your planning.

5. Try these new programs out for yourself.

Start right away so you have time to test things out. As you continue to develop your marketing plan you will be able to test and learn. If things are working, build on those techniques. If some programs are not turning out how you would like, make adjustments and keep at it.

This may sound like just common sense. But most successful marketers don’t have a magic formula. They are continually learning about what works for them in their business. You can use that same technique to grow your business as well.

Good luck!

Top 10 Criteria For Picking A Company

Simon Prentice on RichGrads.com posted on May 24, 2009 a list of the the types of questions you should ask when checking out any business opportunity such as Shaklee.  Here is a link to his posting:

Full Article on RichGrads.com

In order to help you filter out the good companies from the bad, I have put together a post that discusses the Top 10 Qualities to look for when selecting a network marketing company.

These 10 characteristics are based on research put together by D.C. Falter Marketing, The University of Illinois Network Marketing Faculty, MLM Insider and Networking Times. By finding a company that has all of these qualities, you can feel assured that you will be getting involved in a company that will give you your best chance of achieving success.

Here is the list and how Shaklee stacks up:

1.) The founder of the company started the business for a purpose he or she was passionate about.

  • Shaklee was founded by Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee in 1956 and was passionate about improving peoples’ lives through better health and a more healthy home.

2.) The products are consumable. For example, if the company sold water it would meet this criteria as water is consumable. Vitamins are another very good example.

  • All of Shaklee products are consumable – from vitamins, Cinch weight management products, Get Clean home products, and all healthy beauty products.

3.) A binary compensation plan is used. It is far easier to make passive income with a binary compensation plan.

  • Shaklee does not use a binary compensation plan, but is a type of “stair-step” program which is often described as being driven by both product and performance.  This doesn’t mean that binary plans are not good, they are just a different format. What is important is that the compensation plan is built around selling product, not recruiting new distributors for a fee.

4.) The company has a good reputation. Google it! Sketchy companies will have many negative comments written about them. Good companies will have more positives than negatives.

  • Check it out and see for yourself. Because Shaklee has been successful for so many decades means that they are doing something right.

5.) The company has been in business for at least seven years.

  • Shaklee was started in 1956 – over 50 years and growing.

6.) The industry the company is based in has a future not a past. Therefore, there is growing demand for the products. A good example would be products that serve the baby boomers (a growing segment).

  • Shaklee is in the center of the nearly $1 trillion health and wellness industry, focusing on health and wellness, anti-aging, green products, nutrition and beauty, and home-based businesses.

7.) The company has exceptional training programs and marketing materials.

  • Shaklee provides comprehensive training for all new distributors, such as the online Shaklee University. Training continues through local, regional, and global conferences. The most important training comes from your sponsor.

8.) The product or service is distributed through online systems.

  • All distributors have a personal web site (PWS) which is used for processing all orders. No distributor needs to order, house, or ship products.

9.) The company prides itself on HELPING people not selling to people. Sketchy companies focus most of their energy on training you how to just recruit other distributors. Good companies focus on training you about their products and why they help people and how to help people achieve their goals.

  • Shaklee likes to focus its products as designed to help individuals and their families live a healthier life while treating the planet well. Of course the most successful Shaklee distributors work on developing new business leaders, but their compensation is based on total product sold – not income from new memberships.

10.) The company has an exceptional product or service that people will want to recommend to their friends.

  • You have to determine this for yourself. Our household has been using Shaklee products daily for over 20 years and we do not hesitate to refer others to these products.
Based on this criteria – which we think is an excellent way to evaluate these types of marketing opportunities – Shaklee stacks up pretty well.

10 Reasons for LGBT Entrepreneurs to Build a Shaklee Business

Corporate America has becoming an increasingly accepting opportunity for members of the LGBT community. There are more and more companies that offer non-discrimination policies for sexual orientation and even benefits for partners. Co-workers and management can be supportive and allow gay and lesbian workers more freedom than in the past.

But being an open member of the LGBT community in the workforce can still be a tough situation. In some parts of the country it is more accepted than others.

What is a good alternative?

Becoming your own boss and building your own business has been a way for gay entrepreneurs to earn a good living and live their own lifestyle. But starting out on your own can be stressful, take an incredible amount of initiative and effort, and often requires a significant investment. One good opportunity we have discovered is to build a Shaklee business as an Independent Shaklee Distributor.

10 Reasons for Gay Entrepreneurs to Build a Network Marketing Business:

1. You can be your own boss.

You will have flexibility in your time and schedule, deciding on the best use of your time. And you will have the opportunity to truly enjoy your work.

2. You can select your business partners.

When you decide to join Shaklee and start building your business you will be able to select the people you will be working with on a daily basis – no boss or company will tell you who your co-workers will be.

3. You get a choice in who are your customers.

In addition to having a choice in your business partners, you will also be able to have a say in who your customers are. You can promote Shaklee products to anyone so why not select people you like to see every day?

4. You can build a business promoting healthy products in the $350+ billion health and wellness industry.

Shaklee has been in business for over 50 years and is the number 1 natural nutrition company in the US. Shaklee is the first company in the world to be Climate Neutral™ certified. The Shaklee products are excellent quality and you will be genuinely helping others to live a more healthy lifestyle.

5. You will have the opportunity to promote three of the most valuable products for the LGBT community:

  • Vivix Anti-Aging Formula
  • Vitalizer Healthy Nutrition Supplements
  • Nutriferon Immunity Boost

6. You can be rewarded based on your efforts.

The Shaklee program provides you with unlimited income potential. There are 7 ways to generate income and it one of the best in the industry. And importantly you will be recognized for your achievements

7. You can work in a supportive organization that values individual contribution

Instead of working for someone else, being constrained by the existing structure, you will be part of an organization that recognizes individuals based on contribution – not on who they are.

8. Becoming a Shaklee Independent Distributor does not require a large investment.

Starting as a GOLD Ambassador costs only $349, providing a $500+ value. There is no inventory, customer service, or transaction costs. And you can build your business online, giving you the chance to promote your business nationwide and even globally.

9. Shaklee provides comprehensive training to get started.

Shaklee is not looking for just sales people. We are looking for entrepreneurs. The training is extensive, including online and printed material. Shaklee University will give you the tools needed to business a successful business. And most importantly the person who sponsors your member will become your mentor.

10. Become part of the LGBT Shaklee “family”.

We all spend a tremendous portion of our time in our work. We feel that this time should be spent with positive individuals who want to work with us no matter what community we belong to. And at Shaklee we are working to build a large and successful LGBT network of distributors.

Enfusselle Sun Screen

Enfuselle® SPF 30 Sunscreen for Body.

Sunscreen is important for active people of all ages. This natural formula is designed for all skin types, waterproof, and oil-free. Premature skin aging can be a direct result of too much sun so everyone needs protection.

10 Reasons Why Young Entrepreneurs Can be Successful in Building a Shaklee Business

10 Reasons Why Young Entrepreneurs Can be Successful in Building a Shaklee Business

Shaklee provides an opportunity for people of all ages to build a successful business to achieve financial independence. But young entrepreneurs come to the program with several advantages compared with older, more experienced business leaders.

What are these advantages?

Social Networking.

Young Entrepreneurs know how to create social networks online. They are more connected than any other generation and know how to use online tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Building a successful Shaklee business requires building connections and no one know how to do this online better than the younger generation.

Green Living

Strong Interest in Green Causes.

Shaklee has been environmentally responsible for over 50 years – before it was fashionable. Young entrepreneurs want to work with companies that make people and the planet a healthier place to live.

Healthy Living

Want To Develop A Healthy Lifestyle Early in Life.

The young generation is healthy and wants to stay that way. The healthy Shaklee products are the type of merchandise that anyone can feel good about promoting and young people will see that importance. Shaklee’s product line includes healthy vitamin supplements, weight management, green living at home, and healthy beauty products.

Smart and Educated.

This generation is highly educated. They are smart and want to use their training to build a successful career. Entrepreneurs in particular will see that the Shaklee program can provide an opportunity to be rewarded for their hard work.

Energetic

Energetic and Optimistic.

Any selling program involves a certain level of rejection. Young peoples’ energy and natural optimism gives them a resilience others may not have. They can look at the bigger picture over the long run and see that a few “nos” today can be offset by the potential rewards from the “yeses”.

Gold Ambassador

Appreciate the Low Initial Investment.

Young entrepreneurs typically need to find a program with a low initial investment to get started. Shaklee is a perfect fit with an initial investment of only $299 can get them into the program.

Introducing a New Generation to Shaklee.

While Shaklee has been around for over 50 years it is not as well known by the younger generation. This provides the opportunity for younger business leaders to tap into a huge undeveloped market.

Mentoring

Can Benefit From Mentoring/Sponsorship Business Model.

Young entrepreneurs may have the education and energy to do just about anything. But the Shaklee business model is built upon each new Independent Distributor being sponsored. This sponsorship provides a long-term relationship and the opportunity to quickly learn from a pro.

Part Time Work

Can Work Part-Time and Still Be Successful.

Many young people don’t have the time to get started in a full time business. With Shaklee they can take advantage of being able to work at their own pace and still be successful. And as with any new entrepreneurial project, the reward will be directly related to the time and effort invested.

Looking for Alternative Employment in the Current Economy.

No one has to tell new college graduates how tough it can be to land that first job in the current economy. But by creating a job by starting a Shaklee business it will be possible to eliminate that problem. Shaklee has exceeded its sales goals in each of the past 6 recessions and has proven that it doesn’t take a strong economy to be successful.

A TOUGH TIME FOR RECENT COLLEGE GRADUATES

HOW SHAKLEE CAN BE THE SOLUTION

The recession has hurt all Americans but has been particularly hard on the Millennial generation (born 1977 – 1998), according to the latest Pew Research Center survey. As jobs vanished and businesses closed, America’s newest entrants into the labor force have often found themselves among the last hired and the first to lose their jobs.

Sobering facts include:

  • In the 2010 survey, as a battered economy struggles to rebound, about four-in-ten (41%) people in the same age group say they are working full time—a decline of 9 percentage points from 2006.
  • Millennials are also more likely than older Americans to report they recently lost a job (10% vs. 6% for adults ages 30 or older).
  • Data from the Labor Department show that the unemployment figure for college graduates in that age group was 10.6% in the third quarter — the highest since early 1983 and more than double the rate for older college-educated workers.
  • Over the past 12 months, an average of 17.7 percent of 16-to-24-year-olds are neither employed nor in school. That’s 1.2 million more than before the recession.
  • The class of 2010 will be entering a labor market with the highest rates of unemployment in at least a generation; unemployment rates for both college graduates and non-graduates younger than 25 are nearly double their pre-recession levels.

But amid numerous reports of havoc and despair created by the current economic climate, more and more young people are taking things into their own hands by starting their own business. Entrepreneurship – starting their own business – has become an increasingly attractive alternative.

The Shaklee Opportunity can offer smart, energetic individuals of all ages the chance to build their own business with a minimal investment. For only $349, anyone can start with their very own “business-in-a-box”.

What Attracts Young Entrepreneurs to Shaklee?

Many young Independent Shaklee Distributors were introduced to the high-quality products by their parents growing up and recognize their value. But others are finding out on their own how their lives and the planet can be made healthier.

Why Would a Young Entrepreneur be Interested in Shaklee?

  1. Exceptional Products. Shaklee only carries truly exceptional products that everyone wants and needs; from healthy nutrition, weight management, and green living at home.
  2. Environmentally Responsible Products and Business Practices. Everyone interested in “green” products will appreciate working with a company that is based on environmentally responsible products and business practices.
  3. Low Introductory Cost. By joining as a Gold Ambassador for only $299, a new Distributor is given everything necessary to start their own business. And with Shaklee there is no need to handle many business functions such as stocking inventory, sending invoices, shipping product, and handling customer service issues.
  4. Training. Shaklee provides training for all new Distributors on the product line, business practices, and how to build a successful business.
  5. Working with an Established Company. Shaklee has been in business for over 50 years, with a track record of millions of satisfied customers. And the CEO of Shaklee is Roger Barnett, a visionary leader that is committed to building the company far into the future.

  6. Exceptional Earning Potential. With 7 ways to earn, it is possible for anyone of any age to develop a significant income. A Shaklee Independent Distributor earns from both product sales and from bringing other Distributors into the business.
  7. Earning Based on Effort. The Shaklee Opportunity is based on receiving compensation reflecting the amount of effort devoted to the business. So instead of working to make an employer successful, the entrepreneur can benefit directly from their efforts.
  8. Social Networking Opportunities. Shaklee has been successful because of the personal relationships developed between Distributors, their customers, and their Business Leaders. But with the power of the internet, building an online business using established Internet tools can be an incredible opportunity for young entrepreneurs who know their way around the Internet.
  9. Mentorship. Every Shaklee Independent Distributor is sponsored by an existing Business Leader. This relationship is designed to be long-term and provides anyone with limited business experience a strong support team. Our team has been building successful Shaklee businesses for over 30 years and can provide the best training and support.
