Why You Should Celebrate More In Your Business


By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

Each month, Reliv Corporate strives to recognize advancements in the field to celebrate your success and hard work! It is so important to be acknowledged by the entire community and is an easy way to boost the morale of your fellow Distributors or customers.

The term “celebration” comes with a fun, light-hearted connotation; however, celebration should be something practiced regularly in your business. Recognizing the accomplishments of your downline or the weight loss transformations of your customers is completely free on your end but priceless to the receiver. Who doesn’t like being called out for their amazing results? Moreover, your recognition could be the motivational boost that person needs to move to the next level in their business.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate more in your business:

  • Write handwritten notes. A short and sweet handwritten note goes a long way. Send a congratulatory card to someone rocking the business in your downline or to a customer who has been taking Reliv Now® every day! If handwritten notes aren’t your thing, send a personalized email to check in!
  • Congratulate on Facebook. Social media is an incredibly easy way to connect and follow up with your customers. Welcome new Distributors on Facebook with a special post, congratulate your customers’ results or have a monthly spotlight of someone you admire in the business. Whatever you choose, these simple posts will mean the world to the person you are spotlighting.
  • Know the milestones. Has your customer been with you for a year? Is it the 10th anniversary in business of someone in your downline? Send them a note or just give them a quick call on these special milestones! Share with them your favorite memory of working with them.

Celebration promotes positive reinforcement and motivation. Your peers and customers will see and feel the difference once you start acknowledging them more. With these three tips, your team’s morale will go up and become more positive.

Do you have any other ways of celebrating in your business? Comment below and share them with us on our Facebook Page!

Reliv Wins 2011 Bronze Quill Awards

bronzequill Reliv earned two Bronze Quill Awards for the Reliv Distributor Business Kit and Fast Start Guide in the 2011 IABC St. Louis Bronze Quill Awards.

The Distributor Business Kit and Fast Start Guide were redesigned in 2010 to provide new Distributors with materials to quickly establish their Reliv businesses. The kit contains a clear, fear-busting plan to ensure Distributor success.

“The tools we have designed continue to help Independent Reliv Distributors to grow their businesses. These awards serve as validation that the marketing materials available to Distributors are top-notch, which continues to be our goal,” said Vice President of Marketing Kurt Wulff.

IABC St. Louis is a local chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators, a professional network of about 15,000 business communication professionals in over 80 countries. The Bronze Quill Awards celebrate professionals who executed marketing, communications or public relations projects that help drive excellence. Judged by other IABC chapters around the nation, a Bronze Quill is one of the most prestigious awards a communicator, designer or marketing strategist can earn.

The Distributor Business Kit and Fast Start Guide won in two categories: Internal Publication Design (Award of Excellence) and Employee/Member Communication (Award of Merit).

24K Wins People’s Choice Award!

Stevie Awards 24K Wins People’s Choice Award At 2011 American Business Awards

Reliv International, Inc.’s healthy energy shot, 24K, won a Stevie Award as the “Favorite New Consumer Product” at the 2011 American Business Awards last night.

Reliv’s 24K won the People’s Choice Award by polling more online votes than innovative products made by Logitech, Rosetta Stone and other companies.

Dr. Carl W. Hastings, Reliv’s chief scientific officer and creator of 24K, said, “It is a great thrill to be chosen as the top new consumer product by people across the country. I want to thank the voters as well as everyone at Reliv who worked so hard to bring 24K to market.”

The awards were presented during ceremonies at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The ceremonies were hosted by Cheryl Casone of Fox Business Network and broadcast nationwide on radio by the Business TalkRadio Network.

More than 140,000 people voted for the People’s Choice category. Other People’s Choice winners included Apple and Motorola.

Reliv developed 24K because it saw a lack of healthy options in the energy shot category. The product, named because of its 24 active ingredients, contains no caffeine and only five calories. 24K is designed to boost energy, improve mental focus and reduce stress.

Share YOUR “Kudos” with Reliv.

Do you have Kudos to give? Are you deserving of some Kudos? Outside of our normal monthly recognition, it is important to celebrate the accomplishments throughout your Reliv journey, whatever that means to each individual business builder.  Send your “Kudos” tidbit to ahaarmann@relivinc.com and we will post it on the blog.

To get you started, here is a kudos entry submitted to Steve Hastings via email:

“I did it.  Reached Sr. Director again.  The extra 48 hours were what helped me reach the goal. Friday afternoon I was less than one MA away from $2500, but my sister had just got into town so we could celebrate Christmas.  I was so busy that I did not read my emails.  Friday evening Julie Hostetler called and told me about the 48 hour extension.  Wow, was I happy!  When my sister left on Sunday afternoon, I started working to find the last MA.  After 10 pm last night, I faxed in the order.” ~Kecia Holder

Kudos and congrats, Kecia!
