Gratitude.

Had a great day today. I've been thinking a lot about how thankful I am for my life. I love getting ready for Thanksgiving. It really makes you review your life. I give thanks to God 1st. I give thanks to my folks for bringing me into this world and for teaching me how to live. I am very, very thankful for my dear wife. I am so blessed to have her for the love of my life. I really appreciate all the things she does for me. I love my kids and am so thankful for what great adults they have become. I am grateful they have such wonderful partners and for my wonderful grand kids. I carry a little hunk of gold, heavy so it doesn't fall out of my pocket. Every time I feel it, I give thanks. I got the idea from the Secret. What a great idea! How lucky and blessed I am!
Have a great night! Wes

PS I am also very grateful for spellcheck. I have no skill there.

Wow, what an event!

Boy, I had a good time last night. The food was great, the people fantastic and the prizes incredible.

We tried out some of the low carb food products in the Suzanne line. As you know I am a low carb guy now and believe me the flourless brownies hit the spot. We had Chocolate mousse, moist Apple cinnamon Cake, tried the Beef Bourguignon and I am still salivating. What a good time. My deviled eggs where a hit. The cool part is the Suzanne products are price worthy, not pricey. I am amazed when I look at the costs.

We got to sample the PureWorks products and they are awesome! What a benefit to someone that is constantly washing to not have alcohol in your hand soap. Alcohol kills germs only when you use it. After your hands are dry and I do mean dried up (painful cracks), you are susceptible right away to germs. PureWorks kills bacteria and harmful germs for hours. Wow, think of your child at school or daycare. Think of all the colds they bring home by touchie feelie with their little friends. All it takes is to get it on your hands and put it in your mouth. That sounds weird for a little kid, hey? Not. Everything goes in the mouth. Then there is all the hard surfaces to disinfect. Don't get me going!

We heard a great presentation by our millionaire friend Triple Diamond Todd Smith. He did a short Power Point on the economy. It is amazing how many of the people that wouldn't talk network marketing because they were doing so well are now turning to network marketing. Todd is an attorney, has a degree in accounting and an MBA in Business. It was a testimony to network marketing that he was doing so well in that profession that he couldn't afford the cut in income to use those degrees. All this talk of disaster and his huge income is barely bumped.

We got to hear from William Black President of Residual Income with a message of affirmation on Todd's presentation about the increase in people looking at network marketing. He also reaffirmed our need to train all these new people coming on board quickly and effectively with the business training simulator they have created.

We had a grundle of winners of product in the drawing and Tonya Harmer was the winner of the Feb Convention ticket and Todd threw in Diamond University. Can you say "Big Winner." About $300 total. She used the secret and envisioned Nephi reading her number and voila he read her number. Very cool! What a great event!

Well, have a great weekend. Wes

I am looking forward to seeing you tonight at 7:00. Wes

Low Carb Diet With Dr. Wallach

Happy Thursday! Youngevity company conference calls tonight. In case you lost the number its 303-664-6005 with 8016610# to code in. It begins at 5:00 pacific. There is a call on the TRU Chocolate right after. All are welcome, distributors or not. Smallville is next and it is going to kick tonight. Looks like doomsday.

I had a good day today. Fixed my wife's sewing machine. Checked out some sites with low Carb diets. I am in the process of fine tuning Doc's low Carb diet. It is working very well. I started a week ago last Friday, so almost 2 weeks. A little history first - I had a racing pulse last year in December and it messed my heart up a bit. I think I had some drug side effects and the result is I am on full time oxygen. I went to my lung specialist 4 months ago and weighed in. Since that time I haven't been keeping track of my weight but with the reduced activity it felt like I have been gaining; pants tighter, shirts don't fit, you know the drill. So my kids gave me an ultimatum that I had to lose some weight. I went over all the different types of diets. Starve, weird stuff, rabbit food, run till you drop and the old pay through the nose types. A few years ago I did Doc's low Carb approach and it worked. I lost 80 lbs, felt great, blood pressure dropped and I was in hog heaven. Problem was I got a lot of grief from just about everyone that I wasn't doing what was healthy; eating all that fat and skipping the life giving bread and fruit that was created especially for us to eat. So I quit and it took about 2 years to put it back on plus another 10 lbs for good measure. So you don't have to wonder, my doc was set on me losing some weight too. I was telling Rose that it was like Pavlov's experiments. If I lost he was happy and easy going. If I didn't he got grumpier every time I saw him. Anyway it has been 4 months since I have seen him. Yesterday I had an appointment and when they weighed me I guessed I had lost about 6 lbs. I was pretty amazed that it was 16 lbs from the weigh in 4 months ago and yesterday. That doesn't take into account all the weight I felt I had gained between appointments. It could have been a lot more from when I began the change in eating style. Result = it works! I go back right after the first of the year and will let you know how it goes.

Of course, I am still taking the wonderful Youngevity supplements so I won’t be missing the carbs. Doc has always said “As a veterinarian he knew how to fatten up a pig for slaughter and that to make it lean all you do is reverse the process.” Carbs are the way to a big belly. The thing I like is that even though the pounds are dropping like crazy I am never hungry. The bummer is I had to give up bread and ice cream. Those were my two biggest Carb problems. So far it is doable and it has been all-most 2 weeks. Last time I liked it just fine so I think this is going to work.

I also have been drinking an ACT energy drink around lunch every day and that seems to give me just enough sweet taste with no sugar to satisfy all the cravings. I love that drink. It is amazing how it grows on you. First drink its so / so. Second drink you think, really not too bad and the Third drink, you love it. Hmm seems like the plug line works for me.

Check out the conference calls tonight and don’t miss Smallville. I guess not enough people watched Leno or Boston Legal because they are getting bumped. Lets support Smallville. It’s great!

Have a great day! Wes

Essential Oils with Youngevity & Ancient Legacy

Alexandria Brighton and Dr. Judy Wright are the foremost authorities on our Youngevity Essential Oils. Alexandria is an incredible lady with awesome skills and we are very fortunate to have her with us in Youngevity. You can hear them every Tuesday night at 6:00 pm Pacific time on a free conference call 303-664-6005.

What follows, I will paraphrase from Alexandria Brighton's book called "From the Still Room." C2006

Alexandria has been working 20 years with essential oils and creating blends of oils. She has blended for many different companies, making everything from medicinal blends to cosmetic blends to angel blends. She has traveled to India and the Himalayas in search of oils produced by small distillers of such dedication and artistry that their precious oils will never see the commercial market. Her relationship with both National and International medical aromatherapist and researchers provides her with the most up to date information on both the use and safety of essential oils for aromatherapy.
Recreational aromatherapy, which is what we normally see advertised in the media, can get away with purchasing essential oils of unknown origin or quality. But, for therapeutic medicinal purposes that is not the case. We can trace our oils by the E.O.B.B.D label and it is our guarantee of purity. E.O.B.B.D. means Essential Oils Botanically and Biochemically Defined.
For therapeutic use, essential oils must meet various standards guaranteeing origin:
*The exact botanical species of the plant.
*The producing organ (p.o.).
*The biochemical specificity (b.s.).
We feel incredibly fortunate to have high quality suppliers with such integrity and dedication. Alexandria knows each of them personally.
Youngevity/ Ancient Legacy Blends and Oils:
This is an incredible inventory. We owe a huge thanks to Alexandria!
Have a great day. Wes

We call it the "MAGIC" chocolate drink, because many people can taste the magic chocolate flavor for as long as 30 minutes after eating a single piece of TRU Chocolate!

Drink ACT - A partner company of Youngevity

Hi again. I want to tell you today about a partner company of Youngevity. Doc and Steve Wallach have been merging with a myriad of companies to build a huge value in our Youngevity product line.
*I believe Youngevity has the best nutritional products on Earth.
*Michele Wallach has been creating the best Mineral Makeup line available anywhere.
*Youngevity has taken in the best line of Essential Oils with Ancient Legacy.
*Recently we joined with Suzanne Somers and have her full product line.
*Including the Agua Dulce vineyards wines.
*We have the NuVANTE line of skin & hair care
*Youngevity has the Bio Lumin Essense product line.
*We have the Tidal Wave Company with the YouNique skin and personal care lines and great Filter Systems.
*We incorporated the exceptional line of ProJoba™ products, show casing two key sciences. One is the addition of pure, cold-pressed Jojoba oils and proprietary Jojoba extracts to combinations of other high-quality, nutricudical-grade ingredients. The other is flower pollen extract, an element known as nature’s perfect whole food. Pollen grains contain the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and other essential biofactors necessary to create plant life—a nutritional resource that humans require for optimal health and wellness.
*Next is Balance Company with Phenolmenal functional beverage and balancedrops healthy lozenges.
*Pureworks has a complete line of alcohol free products to help keep germs out for everyone:
Lotion, Body Soaps, Foam & Sprays, Hard Surface Disinfectant
*We have TRU Chocolate for weight loss with an ORAC of 3040 for optimal health.
All this reminds me of going to a well stocked store. I can choose what I want and so can my team and customers. Everyone finds their favorite. All these product choices are top of the line in their category. Wow we can make money and really get something of value for our qualifying orders.

What I want to address today is not on the Youngevity list but is owned and operated by Dr. Wallach. Sometimes we have heard, "Ahhh I don't want to be in a unilevel pay plan." Doc and Steve listened and found an incredible binary system for us. The company is Drink ACT and it has incredible products.
*ACT on the go pouches
*ACT in a can
*Body Trim pouches for weight
*Vitalagy functional drink with a broad spectrum of whole fruit and juice extracts with real and measurable phytonutrients and anti-oxidants in every serving! It has the best in all the exotic plants you want.
*Berry Bars give a healthy energy boost to make it through the events of a busy day or pull an all-niter!

The ACT drink is the product heart of the company. It tastes great and gives wonderful results. The first time I tried an A.C.T. Energy Drink I got so pumped with the way it made me feel. I was supercharged but with a clear head. It was great how fast I ramped up and how long it lasted. No falling off a cliff let down like high caffeine and sugar drinks.

There are so many cool elements about the business Drink ACT; free to join, free website, free back office, great customer support, simple but rewarding pay plan and easy to promote. It is mostly Internet driven which draws a young, vibrant, web savvy group of energetic entrepreneurs. If you promote at home or work, seminars, or trade shows the best thing to do is just let people try the product. Once - they like it, twice - they love it and three times - they can't live without ACT.

I look at it like this, if I want to earn $10,000 dollars a month, I can really pull out all the stops and do it myself. Another way would be to find a partner and we each do $5,000. Maybe we could each find another person and I only need to earn $2,500. You probably see where I am going with this. You need a team and we have ways to help you build that team. We figure that to get really rich all you have to do is find 4 people that want to get rich as bad as you do and then help them each find 4.

To wrap this up I will post a video that I have on YouTube that I like. See you next week. Wes

People of integrity!

Life is good. The driver of the truck that flipped the rock through my window paid to have it replaced. That is a good neighbor and I appreciate him. His Name is Davis Roundy. He works for BZI Construction in Beryl, Utah. It is awesome as I go through life how many people I run into that are true Christians. I don't know what religion Davis is, but I know in his heart he is a Christian. He is a person of integrity. He takes responsibility for himself. I truly applaud his actions. If you see him let him know I think he is a great guy and shake his hand for me.

I would like comments today about people you know that excel as human beings. I like the kind that do whats right without expectation of reward other than knowing they have done whats right. I like the kind of people that stop on the road and help people. I like the kind of people that leave something nice on the porch, ring the bell and run. I like people that put themselves in harms way to protect the innocent. Tell us about people you know.

Have a great day! Wes

Great Promotion!

One of the true greats in MLM mentors is Tim Sales. Tim put this together for me to share with you. I approve this message. Wes

The Strongest Prospect Magnet is Great Promotion!

The worst thing you can ever do in your MLM business career is to think, ponder, worry or even get the idea that it’s unprofessional to promote! Here are some MLM training strategies for generating your own MLM leads, even if you’re on a tight budget.

Let’s start out with a definition of the word promote which is the most important word in finding prospects for your MLM Business. The word promote means: to make known.

I was recently doing some MLM training with a person in my downline. She needed some help with her business, which was not growing. As I asked various questions I finally found the “nasty bug” that was stopping her network marketing business from moving forward. She didn’t want to come off as being or sounding sales-y. This stopped her from promoting.

How does everyone else promote?
A politician promotes how he/she can make a whole community’s life better - so he’s/she’s making herself known to the public by promoting and making known to as many people as possible what he/she can do for them. If you’ve noticed, politicians promote on TV, radio, the Internet, signs stuck in the grass or on telephone poles along a busy street or maybe speaking at various group meetings.

A college promotes what courses it offers. It might promote on radio, might promote to high schools or through sporting events. A stockbroker promotes that he can help his/her prospect make money. A local restaurant will promote via radio, or mailing brochures or discount coupons.

The worst thing you can ever do in your MLM business career is to think, ponder, worry or even get the idea that it’s unprofessional to promote!

You really need to know and understand promotion. The only way you can have prospects, therefore customers or distributors - is to promote. The only way for you to make money in network marketing is to promote. You can write down your dreams and goals and study them every night. But you’re as effective as a billboard in the middle of the desert. No one knows you exist until you make yourself known. So if you ever find yourself where your business isn’t growing or you don’t have enough prospects, enough customers, or enough distributors - what do you do? Promote!

Why do you promote? The reason you promote is to create desire for your product. If you don’t create a desire for your product, it’s very difficult to achieve MLM success. How would you know that someone desires your product or business? Well certainly if you sent a post card and someone called the number - that’s someone showing desire in your MLM Business. Even if a person called and asks, “How much is this?” It would still be someone showing desire - or at least slight interest. If you called a friend and asked them to look at something and they said, “Send it to me.” That’s showing a desire. People sometimes refer to desire as “responses,” as in, someone responded to my promotion.

Different types of promotion
So now let’s talk about different types of promotion that create desire. You could promote your MLM Business in:

1. The Help Wanted, the Sales & Marketing or the Business Opportunity sections of a newspaper,
2. Advertising section of magazines,
3. Direct mail, such as sending out post cards to everyone in your zip code,
4. Door hangers,
5. Email, banner ads on the Internet, social networking sites
6. Networking. You would be surprised at how many people, when mentioning all the ways to promote, miss that one. In fact, if you use traditional promotion with the mindset of just finding a network of people to work - you will fare far better than most who only measure their responses with how many people respond to their advertisement. You can turn one response from a promotion into thousands if you properly network.

And then there are leads you purchase from a lead company. The advantage of this is you’re only paying for those who’ve responded and you’re not paying for all the people who didn’t respond. If I send out 10,000 post cards and get 20 responses, then I paid for 9,980 post cards that didn’t get a response.

The advantage of writing your own ads of course is being able to target your specific audience with your specific product or opportunity message. Which is VERY important and should not be underestimated. In contrast, when you buy leads, you’re buying general ads - perhaps people who’ve responded to wanting a home based business. The other down side to buying leads is that very often; lead companies resell their leads to more than just you - so you’ve got extra competition to deal with.

Be “in” business
The bottom line is you must be using at least one of these three methods to achieve MLM success. If you’re not, you’re not in business - you’re out of business. What you should be doing, if you see the big picture and want the very big income is you need to be doing all three. All the time. Ideally you start out by networking, which will create enough money to buy MLM leads, then you’ll generate enough money from the leads you purchased to generate your own leads. My point is, as soon as you start making any money, reinvest it in promotion.

One other MLM training tip: don’t measure your success by just your immediate responses. Any marketer who is of any value knows that how you measure return on promotion investment is based on the “life of the customer.” NOT immediate return. Get one leader from a MONTH or 6-MONTHS of promotion and it can pay you for the rest of your life. People often ask me, how much money did you make your first year in network marketing- I tell them, “I don’t know, I’m still earning it.”

Much respect and admiration,

Tim Sales

I am grateful to Tim for this great message. Implement it! Have a fantastic Day! Wes

Broken window and a new President.

Wow, a broken window is no fun. I called my glass guy and he started looking for a window. Isuzu said there was only 3 of my type in the whole country. oooh bummer. 10" wide 14" high, fixed glass and minimal tint and the cost ~ $347.14 for the glass alone. I have worked with him for years and I trust him implicitly. I called a friend that does body repair and he said call Safelite. It looks like they can come to my home, repair the glass and all for the exorbitant cost of $198.59. They say there is low inflation but costs sure seem high. Oh well, I can't drive around with cardboard in the window.

Elections are over. I hope everyone got what they wanted. I think a great reason to vote is that if you vote and lose, you get the right to say I told you so if it turns out like you thought it would. We will wait and see. Not to say who I voted for. It is amazing how the country comes together and supports whom ever was elected. We have a new President and Congress, so for at least a couple of years they will have free reign to get us up and running again. I sure hope it works out. The one thing I really liked was in Obama's acceptance speech he said God bless our nation. I truly believe we need that. Have a great day! Wes

St. George, Utah

Hope you all had as good a weekend as Rose and I did. We drove down to St. George and spent some time with great friends. My friend Gary and I met when we were around 13. He was a little older then but he is a lot older than me now. HA HA. His wife Kathi was the wonderful lady who many years ago introduced Rose and I. We have been married for 36 years and I am deeply in Kathi's debt. I do believe Rose and I knew each other in another life and would have met anyway but I am glad Kathi stepped up. Some relationships were made in heaven and ours was one of those. We had a great kick back kind of weekend.

It was a bummer that as we were driving a rock was kicked up by a big construction truck and it went through the middle seat window on the passenger side. I have never had a window explode like that. We had some old duct tape and repaired it enough to get to town and fix it with cardboard. We called and the contractor said they will repair the window but it will take up my time. I am just thankful that it didn't go through the passenger window and hurt Rose. It was a blessing.

The weather couldn't have been better for this time of year. We watched some old movies and ate some incredible goulash and French toast. There was too much to relay it all but we ate well. We went looking at some great houses. I am sold on style not big. We sold our big house and it is amazing how much it simplified our lives having a home suited more for two. We have visitors for a while but there is still plenty of room.

We dropped in on my Aunt Jo and Uncle Roger. After living all over the West they finally settled in St. George. It is a fact that they didn't settle for their home. It's awesome. It has a view that looks out over a country club but it is so high up the cliff it would really take a shank to put a ball through their window. The great part is the cliff is a right of way they don't have to own but no one can build on. They have this incredible view of Green Valley and the Santa Clara River and the Bluff airport and red rocks of St. George and you can almost see the Toucan Theater. It's no wonder that building is going so wild in this great town. It is beautiful.

I was watching a History Channel show the other day and saw footage of when the Santa Clara River flooded and washed away a bunch of homes. It turns out the place Gary and Kathi have was in that same subdivision. I love the southwest look of all the architecture. Stucco and Red Bar Tile roofs in every imaginable configuration. I love the Palms and the desert landscaping. I love the warm winters and very little snow to shovel. I really love the friendship of the people we have met and enjoyed over the years. It is a very friendly town. Gary was telling me how great the people are and I told him a story I like. It seems there was a shop keeper at the gate of Damascus. He had been there for years and occasionally he would have a traveler ask about the people of Jerusalem. He would always ask how the people were where the traveler came from. Some would say they were horrible and nasty. They were ignorant and mean and he was so happy to be moving somewhere that had different people. The shop keeper would say "You ask how the people are around here and I am sorry to have to say I have found them to be just as rude and nasty as the town you came from. Many times the traveler would stop on his way out of town and tell the shop keeper how right he was about these horrible people. Sometimes the traveler would say that the people where he came from were wonderful and that he had hated so much having to leave his many good friends. The shop keeper would smile and tell the traveler that the people of Jerusalem were every bit as worthy of being called good friends and that he would love them. Very seldom did he ever see them leaving because the people were so great there they would have to stay forever.

My folks had multiple time shares in Green Valley for years. they finally ended up buying a home in Willow Run. Those were some great times. We spent a lot of time with the rest of the family sharing time in their home. It has been five or six years since they sold it. We've really missed it, our times in old St. George. It was so great to be back.

See you tomorrow. Wes
