Givers Get

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

As many of you are aware Mark Victor Hansen is one of my favorite writers when it comes to the topic of success.  He does not limit his discussions to financial independence; rather, he believes success manifests itself in many

The One Minute Millionaire

 forms.  One of the concepts presented in his book The One Minute Millionaire is the belief that “givers get”.  Essentially, Mr. Hansen claims that rewards quite often present themselves as a direct result of a person’s selflessness.  I have read accounts and been personal witness to people living out this belief on numerous occasions.  

My own belief in Mr. Hansen’s assertion has caused me to share my Isagenix success story with others, and my wife Tamara feels the same way.  Even if we had never experienced the amazing financial success we have had through our association with Isagenix international, we still would have felt a burning desire to share with others the incredible health benefits of this nutritional cleansing and replenishing program.  We feel so strongly about the life changing potential of Isagenix products that We feel the reward comes from the opportunity to change someones life for the better.  For some, the idea of simply offering support and information to others does not seem like much of a personal reward, but just like watching your child open a special gift on Christmas morning, realizing that you could be offering someone the gift of a better, healthier life is a truly incredible feeling.

William "The Refrigerator" Perry

So how does this whole “givers get” idea work?  I offer two recent examples.  In 2007 Superbowl veteran William “The Refrigerator” Perry, formerly of the Chicago Bears, put his Superbowl ring up for auction.  Shortly thereafter Mr. Perry was stricken with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a disease that can cause paralysis.  In 2011 a 10-year old boy heard about Mr. Perry’s ordeal and happened upon what he believed to be Mr. Perry’s ring.  With the permission of his parent’s, the 10-year old took $8500.00 of his college fund and purchased the ring.  He then made arrangements to meet Mr. Perry and return the ring.  It was truly an act of a “giver” that will surely be rewarded in the long run.  Mr. Perry was extremely appreciative and gave the boy two signed jersey’s and several signed football cards. 

This past sunday the pastor at my church told the story of his trip to a restaurant with his family.  He has several children which means that every outing to eat costs a fair amount of money.  On this particular venture he went to pay his bill and was told that the cashier had paid for his families meal.  Dumbfounded, he approached the young cashier who obviously made little money and told her he would not allow her to offer such a generous gift.  The cashier responded that she had been saving her money for some time so she could commit herself to this unselfish act, and that he had no right to deny her the pleasure of it.  As I have in the past when witnessing similar acts, if I had been present for this event I would have tried to do something special for this girldraft lens8781511module77306681photo 1262630011cashier Givers Get in return.  I would venture a guess that most people would if given the opportunity. 

I guess that  is why it is so easy for me to talk about Isagenix with people.  I see the change that the products have made in my life, and the life of my family and want to share it with anyone who will listen.  If you would like to find out more about our Isagenix success stories, whether your desire is to lose weight, improve your health and wellness, or experience financial success, then you can visit our web-site at, or you can call Tamara toll free at 1-866-982-DIET (3438).

Being “Rich” With Isagenix and Nutritional Cleansing

Monday, May 30th, 2011
I quite often find myself being inspired with our Isagenix business by the sermons we hear at our church every Sunday.  As a matter of fact, this seems to be happening more and more frequently where the sermon seems to
isagenix Being Rich With Isagenix and Nutritional Cleansing

Isagenix International

  somehow tie in  with our health and wellness business.  There are times that I feel the sermon is speaking directly to me to the exclusion of everyone else in the room.  This obviously is not the case; however, it demonstrates how personal these messages can become to individual listeners.  

Many people reject the events of their lives as being coincidence and happenstance.  I disagree with this assumption and believe with all of my heart that literally everything happens for a reason.  To take this belief one step further, I assume that everyone I meet is inserted into my life for some purpose of significance, and that I am supposed to glean something from the encounter.  This is why I have no fear when it comes to talking to complete strangers about topics I have passion for.  This has been of great assistance to me in speaking with people about the nutritional cleansing and replenishing system available through Isagenix International.  Accepting the fact that everyone I meet is meant to teach me something, the words of my pastor, and the fact that he spoke them to me is important, and worthy of thoughtful analysis. 
Today’s sermon was about “being” rich (not “getting” rich).  This may sound strange to many of you who are struggling through the tough financial times we find ourselves in.  It seems odd that he would give a sermon with the premise that virtually everyone in the room was “rich”.  Yet my pastor was being accurate.  The vast majority of Americans are wildly rich when compared to the rest of the world.  The truth of the matter is 50% of our planet lives on $2.00 in wages per day.  I do not make this statement to make anyone feel guilty.  To the contrary, I believe there are legitimate reasons for us to have been blessed with such great abundance.  Unhappiness for many comes from the failure to recognize just how much we as a country have been blessed.  Acting with the belief that we just don’t have enough has a tendency to make anyone unhappy.  I, on the other hand wake up every morning believing I am a very rich man.  

ResidualIncomeGraph1 Being Rich With Isagenix and Nutritional Cleansing

Residual Income

I have some very nice things…things I never thought I would have, and most of the time I believe I don’t deserve.  I sometimes question the origin of my blessings.  I don’t mean who gave them to me…I know the answer to that.  I do, however, question the means by which he gave them to me.  In the end the answer is always the same.  I have fantastic

 health and a steady means of residual income by which to enjoy it because of my association with Isagenix International.  The residual income we receive from this part-time job has blessed us beyond what we ever would have expected when we first started down the road of network marketing, or MLM.

I would never apologize for our success, because I would not have the things I do  if they were not conferred upon me.  But as Spiderman’s uncle once said, “with great power comes great responsibility”.  When referring to my success I remember an episode of Seinfeld where they repeated the line, “not that there is anything wrong with it”.  I don’t believe there is anything wrong with being successful in life as long as you are responsible with that success.  
One of my heroes in life is Mark Victor Hansen.  Mark Hansen has written several books on wealth-building

Mark%20Victor%20Hansen170X255 Being Rich With Isagenix and Nutritional Cleansing

Mark Victor Hansen

and success.  He is also the co-author of the book Chicken Soup for the Soul.  Mr. Hansen asserts that we should seek enlightened wealth.  Essentially we should be the conduits of our blessings and not the repositories for them.  He also believes that givers get.  In the end, we as a nation must accept the fact that we are truly “rich”.  There is no doubt that there are degrees of being “rich”, and our interpretation of this word is often viewed from a sliding scale.  But when you accept just how blessed you are, you open up your heart to sharing these blessings.  Network marketing and Isagenix has been a means to an end for fulfilling that desire with my family.

Network Marketing and the Adult Learner

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

For the vast majority of my vocational life I have worked in law enforcement. For much of my career I have been involved with the training, hiring and retention of new police officers. After years as a training officer and a field training coordinator I was able tohome based business network marketing Network Marketing and the Adult Learner parlay my knowledge into a publishing contract with the book “Be a Cop!” The book offered advice, guidance and direction to prospective law enforcement candidates on how to maximize their potential on a peace officer testing process.

Shortly before my promotion to the rank of sergeant I was recognized by my states Peace Officer Standards and Training Board as a subject matter expert on adult instruction as it related to police work. One of the most significant revelations I gleaned from this experience was the difference between how we learn as adults as opposed to how we learn as children. One vital component to teaching adults and consequently to running a successful multi-level marketing business is determining how a network marketer assimilates information. This knowledge can help in the development of strategies to attract new customers and business partners.

The Good Fortune of Nutritional Cleansing

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

What does a fortune cookie’s fortune have to do with nutritional cleansing?  I love oriental food.  Actually I am fascinated by it.  A chef is able to combine ingredients that many people normally don’t eat and blend them in a wayFortune Cookie The Good Fortune of Nutritional Cleansing that makes any entree appealing and desirable.  Vegetables like snap peas, water chestnuts, carrots, sprouts and the like are combined with unique spices and tasty sauces into an explosion of taste and flavor.  That is why I chose to have my favorite for lunch today…Kung Pao Chicken. 

After I finished my delicious meal I looked into the bottom of the bag and spoted the individually wrapped fortune cookie.  Because I am conscious of how many sweets I put into my mouth I will generally skip this dessert.  This does not mean that I skip the fortune.  Now I don’t actually believe in the fortune.  I don’t believe words written on a tiny slip of paper should be directing my life and guiding my decisions.  Yet I do find the fortunes amusing.  Today my fortune read, “There is no greater gift than good health.  Cherish it always.”  Like many of the fortunes contained in those folded yellow cookies, I was having a hard time understanding how these words predicted my future or were supposed to change my life.  Despite this fact I did find value in the passage. 

I believe with all of my heart that good health is one of the greatest blessings that can be bestowed on a man or

woman.  Good health is the soil that a good life grows from.  With that knowledge it should be easy for you to understand why my wife and I are so passionate about Isagenix and nutritional cleansing.  The many Isagenix products, paks and systems are the means by which I can bring a complete stranger closer to a healthier life.

The challenge has always been to convince the receiver of this good news that my intentions are pure and that I am not simply trying to “sell” them something.  This challenge is true for any network marketerMulti-level marketing is very different than any other type of sales.  We are not offereing everyday items.  We are tasked with convincing someone that they need something they never needed before.  Furthermore, we must make our pitch in unconventional locations and circumstances.  

A lightbulb salesman has a built in customer base.  He does not have to convince someone that they need to buy lightbulbs.  Instead, he simply needs to convince the buyer that they should buy their lightbulbs from him.  Network marketers must convince the buyer of one of three things. 

1.  The product or service they offer is “better” than what can be found in a traditional store

2.  The product or service they offer is “cheaper” than similar products bought through more conventional means. 

3.  The product or service is so unique or special that they only reason the buyer hasn’t bought it before is because they were unaware of its existence. 

Isagenix and nutritional cleansing fall into the third category.  Isagenix has provided such a unique health and weight loss solution to me and my family that I cannot help but tell others about how it has changed our lives.  I cannot

 compare it to any other product or service because what it offers is so special and profound that such a comparison would not do it justice.  It is not simply a nutritional supplement.  It is certainly not a weight loss program like so many others on the market.  Finally, the IsaLean Shake is not your typical athletes meal replacement.  It is all of these things and so much more.  We would love the opportunity to tell everyone reading this blog how it has changed our lives…and how it could change yours.

Investing in Your Health With Nutritional Cleansing

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

My wife and I talk to people about nutritional cleansing and replenishing (Isagenix) every chance we get.  We believe in Isagenix so much and want to help as many people as we can that it takes little to get us started.  One of the most common arguments we get in response is that Isagenix is just too expensive.  You may find it doesn’t fit into your budget but there are several considerations that must be examined before such a conclusion is made.  These considerations may very well change your mind about investing in your health

We make decisions every day about the purchases we make.  Very often we make decisions that are not fiscallycaribbean view Investing in Your Health With Nutritional Cleansing sound but, in the end, make us feel good for various reasons.  Maybe you go to a nice restaurant and buy an expensive dinner.  Maybe you go to  the car dealership and buy the car that is more money  than you intended on spending.  Maybe you go on a Caribbean vacation that you put on your credit card just because you have never been there.  I don’t deny anyone from treating themselves well.  I think we all deserve something special every once in a while.  But consider this…when was the last time you treated your body?  In other words, how much are you willing to invest for a healthier you or a better quality of life?  Your health maybe the greatest treasure you will ever possess. 

It appears that many who research Isagenix see the retail price of the programs and without exploring further assume that this potential solution for their obesity and/or health problem is out of their reach.  There are ways that we can show you how to purchase Isagenix products at wholesale prices.  Purchasing the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat-Burning System with auto-ship as an associate (a designation that carries no obligation) will save you about $114.00 when compared to the retail price.

Another consideration is that the Isagenix IsaLean Shake is a meal replacement program.  In other words, instead of supplementing your daily breakfast and lunch with a shake you are actually replacing that meal.  As unbelievable as it may seem, investing in an Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System can save you money on your monthly food bills.  To demonstrate this comparison I have included the following flyer: 

Isagenix Savings Investing in Your Health With Nutritional CleansingThe money saving potential has become even more likely in the last several months.  In an article from March 16, mixed%20vegetables Investing in Your Health With Nutritional Cleansing2011 reported that in the last 30 days alone wholesale food prices jumped more than in nearly two years.  Food prices increased by 3.9 percent over the course of the month caused largely by a sharp rise in the cost of vegetables (it is tragic that the food that is the best for us, is the least subsidized and therefore the most expensive).  Ultimately, the increase in food prices can be tied to the increase in energy costs.  The price of gasoline has gone up 3.7% which means it costs more to bring the food to your table.

Finally, the liberal compensation plan offered by Isagenix has allowed us to supplement our income.  We are able to offset and exceed the cost of our product through our compensation from the company.  If this opportunity interests you we can help you to start your own at home business that may help you pay for your Isagenix products, programs, paks and systems.  I can’t guarantee that you will experience the same incredible success we have, but we would be happy to tell you how we have worked our business.  The Isagenix compensation plan is structured in such a way that your success is our success.  Therefore, it is in our best interest to prom0te and support your business as well.   

Tamara and I would love the opportunity to talk to you more about how Isagenix has not only improved our health, but also has helped us to control our grocery bills.  If you would like to find out more then you can call us at 1-866-982-DIET (3438).  If you would like to do your own research you can go to our web-site at

Help Wanted: No Experience Necessary!

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

I was thinking today about all of the posts I have written over the course of the last year about Isagenix®, health, fitness and network marketing.  I have written about topics such as the many Isagenix® products, the ways toIsagenixLogo2 Help Wanted:   No Experience Necessary! stay healthy and how to make money while sitting on a beach.  I am humbled by your response as we now have literally thousands of people visiting the CleanseBenefits Blog every week.  I cannot thank you enough for your allegiance and interest in the topics I have offered to you.  I will endeavor to continue providing valuable information in the coming years.

Does it Matter if Google can see the CleanseBenefits Blog?

Monday, January 31st, 2011

I track the Google placement of the CleanseBenefits web-sites like some people track their stocks.  One of my goals for the coming year is to get one of the CleanseBenefits web-sites onto page one.  Our primary web-site, Biggest Loser Tucson Does it Matter if Google can see the CleanseBenefits Blog? has been up and running since April of 2009 and has been as high as page 3 when you Google “Isagenix®”.  This milestone was achieved when Tamara was one of Tucson’s Biggest Loser contestants for KVOA NEWS 4.  This experience taught me the importance of links when determining search engine placement.  Our blog, has seen equal improvement over time.  I am very proud of the job Tamara and I have done so far with the internet aspect of our Isagenix® business.

 So how important is the top spot when people are searching for you?  According to the Chitika Network it can mean the difference between success and failure.  According to research the number one spot on Google generates 34.35% of all traffic for any search.  That is almost as much as the number 2 through 5 spots combined (  The biggest jump, according to the Chitika research is from the top of page two to the bottom of page one.  There is an increase in traffic of 143% between these two positions. 

51301uFR34L. AA115  Does it Matter if Google can see the CleanseBenefits Blog?There are many things I have done over the course of the last year and a half to improve our status on Google.  One of them was purchasing several books on search engine optimization (SEO).  One of my favorites was from the …For Dummies series called Search Engine Optimization for DummiesThe books change every year as search engines attempt to address the means by which people try to cheat the system.  However, there is always useful information contained in these books…especially for the beginner with literally no experience or knowledge. 

There are other resources that can help you in your endeavor to get noticed by both the search engines and your potential customers.  In a February 2011 article in the Costco Connection contributor Andy Tilbrook makes the following suggestions:

*  Submit your site to the “Big Three” Engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing).  This can be accomplished through the following links: logo Does it Matter if Google can see the CleanseBenefits Blog?

* Submit your site to  This is a non-profit project that links to Google’s directory. 

* Submit your sitemap to search engines.  There are several sites to include which can help you to do this.

* Make sure the contents of your site is appealing to the customer you are trying to attract.

* Keywords, keywords, keywords

* Make sure your sites image files are named properly to maximize “searchability”.

* “Linking” can be huge if done properly

* Use “Meta-Tags” to provide an accurate description of your site to search engines

* The “headings” on your site provide important information as long as they are relevant to what you are trying to sell or say.

Napoleon Hill Would Have Been an Isagenix® Associate!

Monday, January 24th, 2011

I am a seeker of knowledge and subsequently a book reader.  There are certain books that I have come across during my lifetime that I return to every several years to remind myself of their valuable content.  Some of these bookstgr Napoleon Hill Would Have Been an Isagenix® Associate! include How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie; and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen R. Covey.  I am currently in the process of re-reading Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.  I have the original 1937 version of the book and despite its age it remains relevant today. 

The book speaks to me on many levels and I suggest it would do the same for anyone reading this post.  The book is as much about building great wealth as it is about building great character.  I believe that the two concepts are intertwined.  Two chapters in the books seem to specifically address the desires of anyone wishing to achieve great success in network marketing.  The first is the chapter titled “Decision”.  The second is the next chapter named “Persistence”.  I find both of these chapters especially applicable to the potential of an MLM business so I will summarize some of the topics discussed here.  

cheerleader Napoleon Hill Would Have Been an Isagenix® Associate!Many people give up on their own potential right when they are about to achieve amazing success simply because they listen to the wrong people.  According to Napoleon Hill, “The majority of people who fail to accumulate money sufficient for their needs, are generally, easily influenced by the ‘opinions’ of others.”  Everyone reading this post needs to understand that the greatest potential cheerleader you know is yourself.  It is rare for anyone to have a greater interest in your success than you.  Now I used the word “potential” because we can also be our greatest critics.  Ultimately, our success must be influenced by an internal desire as opposed to an external source of promotion

Once we come to the conclusion that we wish to experience great success regardless of the opinions and desires of anyone else, we must remain vigilant in our efforts.  We must be decisive about that which we want to achieve without reservation or hesitation.  According to Napoleon Hill, “Those who reach decisions promptly and definitely know what they want, and generally get it.”  Being sure of yourself and moving forward with that confidence in place is not always easy.  In fact, it usually requires a great deal of courage because the rest of the world can be working against you.  You must believe however, that with persistence comes great success.  As long as you continue to move forward you will eventually succeed.  There are many elements of persistency which need to be considered.  

  • Definiteness of purposewill power Napoleon Hill Would Have Been an Isagenix® Associate!
  • Desire
  • Self-Reliance
  • Definiteness of Plans
  • Accurate Knowledge
  • Co-Operation
  • Will-Power
  • Habit

The implementation of these practices will increase the likelihood of success in your Isagenix® business and give you the confidence you need to build a strong line.
