LunaRich® has arrived, making it an ideal time to take your Reliv business to the next level and advance along the road to Presidential Director. To achieve your dreams, you will need to set goals. But it isn’t enough to simply set a goal; you must create a plan of action that will guide you in achieving it. Here is a list of things to consider when creating your action plan.
Visualize. See yourself reaching the finish line and celebrating the win. Have a reward ready for once you complete your tasks. Successful people know they will win before they even start the race.

Revisit and adapt as needed. Sometimes in life and in business, things do not play out as we had hoped or planned.
