Why I Chose Reliv

David BlogImage

By Director David Enniss

I first was introduced to Reliv in high school when my mother and I went on the products. I graduated high school and was considering careers that did not offer residual income. I wanted to be paid more than once for my efforts. Thus began my quest in college for a venture to pursue. I evaluated Reliv during my entrepreneurship studies and compared them to various corporations and business models and was thoroughly impressed by many aspects of the organization: the integrity and values of corporate leaders, the honorable mission toward better health, and ultimately the quality of Reliv’s people. I am able to exercise my entrepreneurial spirit and invest in my future while offering a substantial solution to people’s health challenges.

As I was finishing college, I worked to develop a start-up business plan, but soon realized the massive time and energy investments needed to implement and sustain a start-up. Regardless of how thorough you are, you still face odds of uncertainty, assume all the risk, and there is no guarantee for success. Through Reliv, I found a business with all the framework established and a huge support structure in place. You are in business for yourself, but in no way by yourself. You simply plug into the success system, which people before you have followed to success.

Because of this network, I was able to achieve the rank of Director. My mentors taught me to be open to coaching and to follow through with every customer. As you invest in people’s lives, you’re building a vision for them, one step at a time, sharing pieces of the puzzle. Never interrupt this momentum, keep your focus on their next step and see it through. I can’t wait to teach my downline the same lesson.

In the future, I want to make it to Ambassador Level. I will not invest my career with any other company.  I am committed. I am a Reliv Ambassador in the making!

How To Workout With Your Kids

WorkoutKids

By Fit3 Head Coach Tina Van Horn

Fitness friends come in all shapes, sizes and ages. I met a new walking buddy, Lilly, recently at a local 5K and we had an interesting conversation. I learned that her favorite movie is the original The Wizard of Oz and how much she enjoys studying the Revolutionary War, how she plays golf and volleyball and loves the dance exercise class at the YMCA. Lilly, who happens to be a very mature 10-year-old, even has two pesky little sisters who were in a wagon being pulled by her mom behind us. By the time we crossed the finish line, I had told Lilly some entertaining secrets about my sister, her 2nd grade teacher, and she told me how her dad turns every question into a history lesson (insert the pre-adolescent eye roll). I helped her forget that she didn’t want to be walking in a 5K and she helped me forget that my feet hurt. It was a win for both of us!

If you have kids or grandkids, it can be difficult to squeeze in a workout. But if you include them, you have a built-in fitness friend! Just keep the moves simple and find ways to interject a little competitive fun. For example, challenge them to see who can do the most jumping jacks in 30 seconds. You can even break a sweat together with one of the Fit3 workouts.

Kids and teens should get 60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity daily. I know it can be tough to tear them away from their electronic babysitters, but it can be done and you can still get in a good workout too.

Here are a few ideas to get the whole family moving:

  • Turn household chores into a game
  • Crank up the tunes for a dance party during commercials
  • Walk or run for a charity special to your family
  • Walk or run in a holiday 5K
  • Do community service or volunteer work together
  • Have a weekly sports night
  • Make up a playground workout
  • Use your kids as “weights” when you strength train
  • Run relay races in the backyard while picking up sticks
  • Compete to see who can rake the biggest pile of leaves

The possibilities are endless when it comes to helping your family stay active. Find out what works for your schedule and for your family’s lifestyle and you will end up having so much fun and making lifelong memories together!

Power Your Workouts With ProVantage®

Womanworkout-web
By Fit3 Head Coach Tina Van Horn

There’s no better time than now to perfect your workouts with the optimal performance nutrition found in Reliv’s ProVantage®. Designed with a patented plant-based protein formula, ProVantage meets your nutritional needs for both immediate and long-term athletic performance.

“Whether you’re working out in the gym or your backyard, you need the right nutrition to perform your best,” says Dr. Carl Hastings. “ProVantage delivers that nutrition and the patent confirms the uniqueness of a formula designed to deliver real results.”

Walk into any fitness center or grocery store today and protein powders are in abundance. There are so many to choose from—it is overwhelming! So what makes ProVantage different? No other performance supplement harnesses the power of plant-based protein with the combination of powerful antioxidants and supercharged amino acids.

Let’s take a look at how this synergistic blend of ingredients works:

One of ProVantage’s key ingredients is lunasin. This cell-protecting protein and naturally-occurring peptide combats the oxidative stress and inflammation caused by strenuous exercise. Your body will feel the difference and thank you for this.

ProVantage also has medium chain triglycerides, or MCT’s, which work to help reduce body fat and increase muscle mass. MCT’s also improve muscle repair and muscle quickness while providing more energy than carbohydrates. So your workouts will be fueled all week long!

Say goodbye to your midday slump. The CoQ10 and grape seed extract promote energy production, combat free radicals and support the immune system.

So how do these superior ingredients translate to everyday performance fuel?

Work harder. From adding extra reps at the gym to hiking further up that hill, discover the stamina to power through fatigue.

Recover faster. Don’t settle for sore muscles. A precise balance of nutrients can shorten recovery time.

Get stronger. The right protein helps you build higher-quality muscle than you ever thought possible.

Simply mix 1-3 scoops daily with water or your other favorite beverage, depending on level and intensity of training.

Bottom line: ProVantage delivers a performance edge that is unparalleled! See for yourself how ProVantage outperforms all the others….the proof is in the powder!

Why Commitment Is Important In Multilevel Marketing

DistributorsBBQ BLOG

By President of Sales & Marketing Tom Pinnock

I was asked the other day what is the one thing that all successful Reliv Distributors have in common. To me, the answer was simple: commitment.

During my 29 years with our amazing company, I have seen people come and go, but the ones who dug in their heels, built relationships and made a commitment, have all prospered, grown, and helped countless others to do the same. Leaders make a commitment and stick to it. They know where they’re going and they know how to get there. People follow people who are in love with what they do, and who aren’t jumping from one thing to the next.

The fact is that in my three decades of being in the direct selling industry, I have never seen one person leave Reliv and become successful in another company. On the other hand, I have seen people jump from one company to the next, and then to the next, and before you know it, they have lost all credibility, and their chances of becoming an MLM superstar have vanished along with their downline.

The truth is that there are only a handful of MLM companies that have been around as long as Reliv, and even fewer that have our kind of integrity. I see the “bottle rocket” companies come and go all the time. But at Reliv we are built for the long run, science is our foundation, and raising up people is our business.

In other words, we build friendships that last forever, and we do life together. Yes, we help people to better health, and yes we raise up entrepreneurs, but just as importantly we are a community of friends dedicated to supporting and inspiring each other. I could never quit taking my Reliv products or building my Reliv business, and I certainly would never quit on my friends.

 

So get committed, roll up your sleeves, get after it, and never, never, never quit. If you do that, I’ll see you atop the towering stages as thousands shout out your name.

 

Is Whey or Soy Protein Better?

NowSoyAndWhey BLOG

By Product Marketing Specialist & Fit3 Head Coach Tina Van Horn

Are you trying to decide which version of Reliv Now® is best for you? Maybe you haven’t tried the new Reliv Now® with Whey formula and are wondering how it is different from the original soy protein-based version. Maybe you are just wondering, “Which formula does Coach Tina take?” or “Which is better?”

The answer is: I take both and BOTH are great! One is not better than the other. Which one I take is completely dependent on how I am customizing my shake with Reliv’s targeted solution products. I prefer my shakes to contain combinations of protein sources so if I am adding ProVantage® or SoySentials® to my shake, which each contain 14 and 10 grams of soy protein respectively, I will use Reliv Now with Whey. This allows me to take advantage of the complementary amino acid profiles found in the different sources of protein. This is typically a post-workout shake when I really want to optimize the muscle-building benefits of protein.

I tend to lean toward Reliv Now® with Soy in combination with FibRestore®, ReversAge® or Arthaffect® (collagen protein) for my shakes in between meals to keep me from giving in to temptations and cravings. Research suggests that soy protein absorbs a little more slowly and may help suppress your appetite, so I maximize my intake.

Whey or soy protein ultimately comes down to your personal preference. “You can choose the new whey-based version or the flagship soy-based formula, but either way, you get optimal nutrition from guaranteed quality ingredients,” says Dr. Carl. “Our core nutrition formulas are the cornerstone of your Reliv nutrition.”

I’m nursing a hamstring injury so I will be leaning toward extra ProVantage and Reliv Now with Whey. What are you taking today?

How to Build a Successful Business Structure That Works!

WomenMentorship2

By CEO Ryan Montgomery

Partnership is a key foundation in Reliv, especially the partnership between you and the company. When both parties have a clear understanding of the strengths and specific duties they bring to the table — that’s when a partnership works best. For 30 years, Reliv has been committed to upholding our end with these three promises:

  1. We offer superior nutritional products and deliver them on time.
  2. We offer the best compensation plan in the industry and get you paid on time.
  3. We offer exceptional office support with marketing tools, customer service, accounting, technology, etc.

We have committed to these three promises for the past 30 years and will stick by them always. This is our structure, our simple system that works.

Assuming you desire to build a business with Reliv, your role is to develop and build YOUR organization, and collectively, all of your organizations make up one Reliv organization. Your #1 role as a distributor leader is to establish a “structure” for YOUR business that YOU believe in. You’re all “independent” entrepreneurs which makes you the CEO of your own business. You are free to do what you believe works to attract new people and develop them into successful leaders for tomorrow.

There are many online and offline methods from hotel meetings, in-home meetings, webinars, conference calls, 3-way calls, social media, lunch-and-learns, beehives, special events, Super Saturdays, Girlfriends’ Getaways, conferences…and as leaders, you must decide what structure and combination of methods are going to work for you. And you can feel safe to build your business as you see fit. I encourage you to work with uplines, downlines and sidelines with a spirit of cooperation, but at the end of the day, you have to incorporate and pursue a structure that you believe will work. Nobody can sustain anything that they believe in halfheartedly. You have to build a structure that you take ownership of and have 100% belief.

In our business, one MUST have a system to get people started strong, or onboarded. You can be the best recruiter, but if you don’t get your new recruit started with a clear and simple plan of action with structure, they’ll never get off square one. People need a path. They need a structure to plug into for learning, motivation, growth and recognition…as well as a structure to plug their new people into. When you know your structure and daily/weekly/monthly plan of action, new people will follow. People follow leaders that know where they’re going and how to get there.

I believe there are two basic fundamentals in our business. First, you must have a compelling Message to share that attracts people to join your mission. I believe you can check that box. Second, you must have a structure for new people to embrace, plug into and duplicate.  The structure in your organization may not be identical to another’s, and that’s okay…the key is to have structure. Honestly, the similarities among organizations will far outweigh the differences.

We are partners, all of us. We succeed and celebrate together when we all do our part in growing Reliv and more importantly, when we nourish our world.

Find Your Happiness With Reliv

RunningGrass-web

By Fit3 Head Coach Tina Van Horn

Since my primary language is sarcasm, most people wouldn’t describe me as cheerful or jovial, but my second language is optimism! Wouldn’t life be so much simpler if we could just focus on the things that make us happy and ignore everything else? Things that make me happy: new running shoes, goats, colorful food, my kids playing together, a soft blanket, hot coffee, pajama pants, birds singing, helping others be healthy. Don’t these things just sound like the epitome of happiness?

Reality check—life is messy and unfortunately flat tires mess up our workout plans and bills outnumber birthday cards in the mailbox. We live in a world full of chaotic days and sometimes the everyday stresses seem relentless. That’s why it is important to develop coping mechanisms that help you deflect the negative and focus on the positive!

Most of my personal strategies involve doing things that are good for my physical health. When you fuel your body with the nutrition and exercise it needs, your happiness levels are greatly affected. I have always been intrigued by the extra benefits of exercise and healthy eating—such as improved self-esteem, confidence, emotional stability and stress reduction. Truth is, when I started my fitness journey more than 20 years ago, my goals were only physical. I had no idea that my entire outlook on life would be transformed just because I started exercising!

It is through this journey that I have found myself and what makes me happy. I have been empowered by my overall wellness to walk away from negative influences that steal my joy. It didn’t happen overnight, but taking care of my body has nurtured my soul and given me the gift of perspective to focus on the things that make me happy.

The elements of Fit3—exercise, nutrition and Reliv products—are about total body wellness, not just the physical aspects. Even Reliv’s mission is, “To Nourish Our World in body, mind, and spirit.”

How will you nourish your body, mind and spirit to find your happiness today?
