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

one%2Bminute%2Bmillionaire Givers Get

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.

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. 

I have never lost sight of the fact that the CleanseBenefits blog is not about me, my wife, or even Isagenix®.  Instead the blog has always been about you the reader.  It has always been about how I can improve your life, physically…and home based business pic Help Wanted:   No Experience Necessary!financially.  I have come to the conclusion that I have been making assumptions about what is important to you, your health and your home-based business.  In order for the CleanseBenefits Blog to remain relevant and cutting edge in the future I need to know what we are doing right and wrong.  I need to know what attracts you to the blog each week and what you would like to see in the future.

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

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.

“So How do I Talk to Someone About…Isagenix?”

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Whenever Tamara and I introduce someone to Isagenix® we always tell them about the wonderful financial opportunities that come with that association.  Many times we get a negative response such as “I am not apassion “So How do I Talk to Someone About…Isagenix?” salesman”, or “I am just not good at talking with people”.  Interpersonal interaction is definitely a learned skill, but one that I believe comes naturally as you reach your own conclusions about the amazing promise of Isagenix® and the companies many fantastic products such as the Isagenix® IsaLean® meal replacement shake, or the Isagenix® Ionix® Supreme dietary supplement.  When you realize how much the programs and products have helped you improve your own life, you will have a tendency to want to tell others about it.  In the end you cannot “sell” anything to anyone that you aren’t passionate about yourself.  You have to be a “believer”.

Tamara and I have learned to have no fear when it comes to talking to people about Isagenix®.  We have learned, gatsby idea! “So How do I Talk to Someone About…Isagenix?”however, that we are ultimately not selling anyone on the Isagenix® product line or an Isagenix® program.  Rather, we are trying to cause a paradigm shift in their thinking.  We are trying to sell them on a new idea.  Furthermore, we never make that idea about us…because it isn’t.  It always has to be about how Isagenix® can help them…how it can forever improve their lives. 

For example, I was in a service station recently to buy some Propane.  As I was paying I asked the clerk how her day was going.  She told me she was tired and had a very long day.  I responded in kind and she asked me what I had done.  I informed her of the work I had done with my fantastic at-home business and she asked me about it.  When I told her about Isagenix® she told me her daughter could really use my help.  She gave me her cell phone number and e-mail address without hesitation!  In the end I talked little about myself.  Instead the conversation focused on her daughter and how I could help her with her weight issues.  

This type of interaction may be foreign to some of you.  I admit that 24 years in law enforcement has helped to hone my skills when it comes to striking up a conversation.   With that said, here are some suggestions for easing this process: 

1.  Leave your Ego at the Door—No one wants to hear about you.  If you have never met a person before it is rare for them to have any interest in your life unless you are one incredibly interesting person (e.g. the Dos Equis guy).  Your conversation should not be about you but about how you can help this new friend or potential business partner.  

2.  Don’t appear needy—Don’t look pathetic or appear as if your life is dependent upon this person buying Isagenix®man begging 300 “So How do I Talk to Someone About…Isagenix?” products and programs.  If you remain positive and make contacts throughout your day you will eventually find someone that needs your help or wants what you have.  Realize that the percentage of people that want what you have to offer is about 2 in 100.  Don’t get discouraged.  You will eventually find an eager customer.

3.  Tell Them Why Isagenix® is so Important to Them—People will offer many reasons why they “can’t”.  It is your job to present to them the reasons why Isagenix® is vital to their lives on several levels…because it is.  Have those arguments memorized for the inevitable challenges. 

4.  Throw a curveball—Isagenix® by the nature of the company offers life changing experiences.  That can be scary for some.  If you find that your new friend is getting nervous, get off topic for a few moments, e.g. talk about your kids.  When they have relaxed begin your Isagenix® conversation again. 

5.  Repeat Their Arguments—The purpose of this tactic is not to fortify or validate their concerns.  Instead it tells them that you are listening and that you are concerned about them.  Furthermore, it clarifies exactly what their concerns are so you can present appropriate positive arguments.
