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).

Weight Loss, KVOA News and the Blessings Conduit!

Friday, October 15th, 2010

This week KVOA News in Tucson knocked on our front door.  They were there to do a story on nutritionalkvoa Weight Loss, KVOA News and the Blessings Conduit! cleansing and replenishing and how Isagenix® had changed my family’s life.  KVOA, as they had done in recent years had begun a series of stories based upon the television reality show The Biggest Loser®.  They wanted to know different ways in which people were able to attain and maintain their health and weight loss goals.  We submitted Tamara’s story in the hopes that it would pique their interest as it had ours four years ago.  A week or so after the submission we received the call that we would be doing our story. 

They interviewed Tamara and our kids and wanted to know how the Isagenix® IsaLean® meal replacement Biggest Loser Tucson Weight Loss, KVOA News and the Blessings Conduit!shakes and Isagenix® Cleanse for Life® dietary supplement had been introduced to us and how these and the many other Isagenix® products continued to play a role in all of our lives.  They even asked us to mix a shake for them.  I was very proud of my family as they demonstrated confidence and boldness on camera.  The reporter was kind enough to discuss the talents of my children and allow them to demonstrate their athletic skills and interests.  Most important though was the story that Tamara was allowed to relay to Channel 4’s viewing audience.  She told them how four years ago she was supposed to be attending her high school reunion.  She told them how after having our children she struggled with weight loss.  She told them how she had tried everything she could think of to improve her fitness to include proper diet and a physical fitness regimen.  Yet none of these efforts seemed to make a significant difference until a friend introduced her toIsagenix®.  The rest, as they say, is history. You can view the story and watch the video by clicking on the link below.

The next day we were all able to view the story on KVOA’s 4:00 news and the KVOA web-site.  As the story unfolded before our eyes I was struck by how significant Isagenix® had become to my whole family.  I believe that my family has been blessed for a very long time.  I do not believe that Isagenix® is the cause of those blessings, but I do believe it is the conduit by which those blessings have been delivered to us. 

The night of the airing Tamara started receiving telephone calls and e-mails from others interested in the many Isagenix® systems, products and paks.  Today Tamara spent the bulk of her day answering phone calls from people wanting more information.  These callers recognized through Tamara’s words what nutritional cleansing and replenishing could do for them.  Ultimately, they wanted what we had and Tamara was excited to share it with them.  We want to share it with you as well!  Watch the video and try to visualize Isagenix® as the conduit for blessings in your life.

“Investing” in Your Health!

Friday, May 14th, 2010

There is a saying that goes “you have to spend money to make money”.  I have entered into several business ventures and I have another that I am working on right now.  I will tell you that this is true.  Most people fear investing in a new idea because they may invest capital only to experience failure.  I believe this is the same reason people don’t invest enough in their health.  I would suggest that “you have to invest in your health to gain your health”. 

9 Day 1024x641 “Investing” in Your Health!Many people do not put forward the effort to improve their health because they fear they will fail, or they fear they will invest with little return.  No one likes to feel like they wasted their time.  I felt this way about my wife when she started her journey with Isagenix.  I had assumed failure because so many programs result in failure.  I felt I was protecting her and mitigating the impending failure of yet another foray into her battle of the bulge.  My goodness was I wrong!  Her investment of time and effort with Isagenix reaped rewards that I never saw coming.  Each step of the way I offered typical arguments of “it’s not going to work”, or “the weight will come back”, or “you will hit a plateau”.  My intent was not to be unsupportive; rather it was to prepare her for what I predicted was her impending failure.  Each time I was amazed to find I was dead wrong about this wonderful health and wellness program.  It was then my turn. 

Ad Pics “Investing” in Your Health!Tamara had such amazing results that everyone that knew her when she was overweight wanted to know what she was doing.  She was like an evangelist telling everyone the gospel of Isagenix.  We are a Christian family and Tamara even described it at times as a calling…helping people to get health with Isagenix is what she was meant to do.  When the company called and said they wanted to put Tamara’s pictures in their brochures and catalogs, my negative feelings again began to surface.  I told her that she was being used to make other people rich.  Tamara continued to argue that she was following a positive path.  I told her that if she made any money with the Isagenix compensation plan that I would try the program myself.  Within a month I had to back up my words with actions.  I now have my own Isagenix weight loss and new-found health success story to tell everyone!

Thank you, John Anderson!!

I married my wife, Tamara 20 years ago this coming month.  To help her remember that day I had our wedding tape converted onto DVD and we watched it tonight with our kids.  It was great fun to look at ourselves and what great shape we were in back then.  I have always thought she was beautiful, and the day I married her was one of my happiest. 

She has always been very health conscious and concerned about her physical fitness.  I have, for the most part, relinquished the responsibility for healthy eating and nutrition to her and she makes the majority of the food choices in the house…especially when it comes to our kids. Wedding weight Isagenix 2 Thank you, John Anderson!!

After having our kids, and despite her best efforts, Tamara began to gain weight.   She tried several diets and was on a consistent fitness regimen.  The unwanted weight gain was beginning to affect her attitude and outlook.  I regularly reminded her that I loved her and found her attractive regardless of her dress size.  I also told her that the only time I would ever say anything about her weight was if I felt it was beginning to adversely affect her health.  That day was approaching, but I knew that saying something would only make things worse.  I decided to keep my mouth shut because I realized Tamara was working hard to find a solution to her own weight problem.

When Tamara came to me with Isagenix® I had little faith that this program was different than any other “diets”.  I tried to remain positive and encourage her, but I was also concerned about yet another plan failing her.  When the Isagenix 9-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System™ resulted in astounding success in a short period of time, even I was having a hard time remaining skeptical.  Tamara then moved on to the Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning Syste30 day 1024x603 Thank you, John Anderson!!m™ and in a few short months returned to her marriage weight and fitness level.  She could again fit into her wedding dress!

Most “diets” offer little support after the weight is gone.  Therefore, I thought that Tamara might end up back at square one looking for another solution to yet another weight gain.  Tamara then introduced me to the Isagenix Total Health and Wellness System™.  With the support of this maintenance program Tamara has been able to maintain her health and in the process made a full-fledged Isagenix believer out of me.  We are now an Isagenix® family!JohnAnderson Thank you, John Anderson!!

Isagenix® was invented by John Anderson, a Chemist who has worked for supplement companies such as GNC® and MetRx®.  Mr. Anderson has over 600 patents related to the health and wellness field to his name.  To me the most important thing John Anderson has ever done, however, is help to improve the health of my family.  If John Anderson were standing in front of me now, I would introduce myself and say “Thank you, John Anderson!!

Police Sergeant’s Wife Provides Financial Freedom For Her Family With Isagenix®

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

Tamaraprimary 280x240 150x150 Police Sergeants Wife Provides Financial Freedom For Her Family With Isagenix®The story below is from an interview I did with Isagenix in 2008.  It was posted on the company website in January, 2009.

Tamara, a 45-year-old mother of two from Arizona, has turned her 65-pound* weight-loss success with Isagenix® into a thriving business that has changed her family’s life. Now, instead of struggling to make ends meet on her husband’s police officer salary, Tamara and her family are taking vacations and even saving for college for their kids.

Tamara first tried Isagenix to lose weight for a class reunion. Initially a skeptic, Tamara was stunned by her success with the Cleansing and Fat Burning System. She has been using Isagenix ever since and was able to shed the 65 pounds* she struggled to lose despite going to the gym and watching what she ate.

“I felt absolutely amazing. Since I was feeling so good and had great results it was easy to stay motivated and keep going. I’m on the maintenance system now and have been able to keep the weight off,” shares Tamara, who follows the system with her husband Bruce, who dropped 16 pounds and two pants sizes.*

Tamara admits she was a “closet user” of the products as it took her nearly three months before she started sharing Isagenix with her family and friends.

“People asked me what I was doing because I was a much happier person and had lost a significant amount of weight so I started sharing my experience with them,” explains Tamara. “All of a sudden it clicked that I could help a lot of people by sharing Isagenix and generating income for my family at the same time. I’ve never looked back from there.”

Tamara’s efforts to build her Isagenix business started slowly, but soon her financial success was paying for the cost of the monthly products that the entire family was using. Once the couple reached that benchmark, they decided to start dreaming big. Could Isagenix help the family afford a vacation, a second home or even early retirement?

She started sharing her weight-loss story with everyone she met. It wasn’t always easy, but she maintained a conscientious effort to talk about Isagenix, even to people who were skeptical just like she had once been. She also started setting concrete goals and visualizing what the results of her efforts could be.

“One day, I came across a model home that I fell in love with that I knew we couldn’t afford,” shares Tamara, recalling her early months in the business. “Three months later we signed a contract on the house. I had it in the back of my mind and before I knew it, one of our dreams had come true.”

In addition to their dream home, Tamara’s Isagenix business has allowed her to more than replace the income of her once full-time job** and spend more time with her kids. The family recently took their first vacation that didn’t require a charge card and are even considering a vacation home in Wisconsin. Last year the family was also able to get through the holidays without having to go into debt.

Her family’s most important financial goals are to pay for college for the kids and help her husband Bruce take early retirement from the police force when he is eligible in four years.

It hasn’t always been easy, but Tamara believes that persistence pays off. A friend of hers owns a gym and it took Tamara over a year to get her on board with Isagenix. Now, they work together in the business. Tamara has also switched from product emphasis to the financial aspects of the business, noting that different people are looking for different things.

“I’m redirecting my approach now, “shares Tamara. “The economy and the financial opportunity that Isagenix offers are definitely on the forefront of people’s minds.”

Above all she believes in sharing the power of her personal experience and success with Isagenix with everybody she meets, which has helped her business to keep growing steadily.

“We’re able to live a lifestyle now that I never dreamt was possible,” says Tamara. “There are more important things than money, but it does make things easier sometimes. Having the extra financial security in our lives is really nice. It has allowed us to live a better life as a family.”

A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

Ad Pics1 150x150 A Picture Speaks a Thousand WordsAs I look at my pictures, I am amazed at the transformation I’ve experienced using the Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning Systems. Even my doctor can not believe the difference.

I am a 47 year old mother of two children, ages 9 and 13. During both of my pregnancies, I gained a significant amount of weight that I found impossible to release. I exercised regularly, but obtained little or no results for my efforts. Then a friend told me about Isagenix. Desperate to lose weight for an upcoming class reunion, I decided to give it a try. I began Isagenix’s 9 Day System and before long I began to look and feel better. This made it easy for me to stay motivated. After five months following the 30 Day System, I reached my weight loss goal. I am now able to maintain my goal weight and feel great by following Isagenix’s Total Health & Wellness Program. To date, I’ve released 65 pounds, 71 inches, and over 20 percent body fat. I’ve dropped from a Size 12 to a Size 0. Even better than the weight loss is the way I feel. I have more energy than I can remember; I sleep better at night; and my cravings for unhealthy foods are gone. I feel and look like I’m 20 years younger.

As if this wasn’t enough, Isagenixis also changed my life financially. By sharing my experience with others, I have been able to generate a substantial income for my family.  Click below to read my financial success story.

Isagenix has truly been a blessing in my life!

*Results may vary. In a recent study, participants averaged a weight loss of 7 pounds at the completion of their first 9 Day Program. Always consult your physician before making any dietary changes or starting any nutrition, weight control or exercise program.
