Most of us can recall a defining moment in our lives, but Katy Deen of Chicago, Illinois can claim more than most.
“I’ve had lots of ‘em, from meeting my husband, to raising 7 kids, to working with Reliv for the past 13 years,” Katy says. In all that time, Katy, a Presidential Bronze Ambassador, has remained a shining star in the Reliv universe, once reaching the exalted position of #2 Distributor in the nation.
“Funny thing is, I never wanted to do it in the first place! My initial interest in Reliv started from the major health problems I had,” Katy says. “I was very sick, in bed 24 hours a day, and taking handfuls of pills a day. Can you imagine? And with 7 kids to take care of!”
But the motivation to work with Reliv went a step further. “I didn’t really need the income, my husband made a good living. But every time I turned people on to the product and saw how it changed their lives, it spurred me on to continue helping folks. Some for health reasons others for a better life and increased income,” she says.
“I’m a psychiatrist by training but never really worked in my field. I stayed home and raised our kids. My husband worked for the government as a nuclear engineer,” Katy continues. “I knew Reliv was something special when I got a check for $8,000 once. It was more than my husband made in a month! You want a defining moment, how’s that for excitement?”
Katy is quick to admit she’s made every mistake in the book, but in so doing, learned how to avoid pitfalls in her personal and business life. “I’m still here, though. Why?” she adds. “Two reasons: I never quit and I make changes when they’re needed.” Now that’s a philosophy we can all apply to our lives.
