I was so excited I couldn’t sleep…

Have you ever met someone or heard a speech that ignites a spark in your mind and in your heart so deeply that you know without a doubt that this experience is going to change the rest of your life?

That’s what happened to me on January 7, 2005.

I was attending a conference in Chicago and the keynote speaker that Friday evening was the new CEO of Shaklee Corporation – Roger Barnett.  This was not the first time I had heard him speak, but this was the night that his message took root in me and removed any doubt in my mind about what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

What did he say?

  • He was going to lead Shaklee into a phase of explosive growth around the world riding the trend toward health and wellness.
  • Shaklee was the vehicle for him to fulfill his life mission of helping people and making the world a better place.
  • What we had in Shaklee was a gift – a gift of better health and a gift of a better way of life, but if I didn’t give it to anyone it was only a package.

Up until that time I was hesitant to talk to people about the Shaklee business opportunity because everyone I knew saw me as a successful professional in my career. I thought if I told them I was going to give up my career to become an entrepreneur with a multi-level company marketing nutritional products I thought they would think I was a nut. But here was this brilliant billionaire businessman up on stage saying that he was devoting the rest of his life to grow this company. I knew he was going to be successful and I decided I wanted to be a part of it. I was so excited that night that I couldn’t sleep.

I figured Roger wasn’t afraid to talk to anyone about Shaklee and he travels in some pretty influential circles… successful business people, politicians, celebrities, world leaders…

Why should I be afraid to talk to anyone about Shaklee?

I took up this mission to give that gift of Shaklee away as often as I can. Another fateful moment six weeks later – I was laid off after 19 years with the same company. I call it my liberation day.    I got pushed out of the nest and embarked full time on my Shaklee journey. Part of my passion for Shaklee is developing a secure income that no one can ever take away from me and my family and helping other people do the same.

An Update – 7 years later

Roger has delivered on all his promises to improve and introduce new Shaklee products, grow Shaklee around the world and make sure those of us who spread the word are well compensated. The new Dream Plan introduced in fall of 2010 was a real game changer with it’s unique combination of front end perks for people starting out and the opportunity to earn long term residual income to infinity.

I call the front end perks the icing on the cake – a new car, worldwide travel AND an opportunity to earn $100,000 in 15 months. The good news – lots of people have taken Roger up on his offer and have completed what we call the FastTrack to success. Here’s an updated message from Roger called Why Shaklee – Why You

Intrigued by Roger’s message?

Good news he is going on tour across the U.S. starting today. You may be able to hear him in person in a city near you. Click here for full schedule.

What about me?

  • I’m driving a new car for only the second time in my life and I get a check from Roger every month to make the payments.
  • I earned two trips and I’m about to earn my third to return to the Barcelo Maya Palace this fall. It’s nice to go on vacation, but even better when someone else pays the bill.
  • I’ve attracted a few leaders who have taken up Roger’s vision and our team is growing here in the U.S. and around the world – yes even into China!

I’m looking for a few more like minded people to help get started this year. People who…

  • Want a better life for themselves and their families than the 9-5 routine can provide
  • Like the idea of a Plan B income to provide them with a security net in these uncertain times
  • Are my age (53) or older and are concerned about their retirement income
  • Could use an extra $1000 a month income right away to pay off bills
  • Are recent college grads who can’t find work and are worried about paying off their student loans
I could go on – but you get the idea – men, women, any age. No experience necessary – just a willingness to learn and a dream for a better life.
