Reliv Regimen: Innergize!, LunaRich X, Reliv Now

New Attitude: A few months ago, if I would take four or five days off from jogging and then try to jog again, it would be hard. Since I started on Reliv in May, anytime I decide to jog it’s like I never stopped.

New Season: I was on the products for three weeks and my husband (not on the products) complained about his allergy symptoms, but I wasn’t experiencing any. He would say, “Oh, they’re so bad this year!” I would look at him and say, “They are?”

New Role: I wasn’t going to sell Reliv, but I’m getting these results! I have energy and I feel good! I see Reliv as part of my daily life and look forward to sharing it with others as opportunities arise.

Overwhelming Science: The business part got my attention. The science behind the nutrition was overwhelming. I decided the best way to know the product was to use it. I wanted to connect somehow and learn as much as possible about the business and products.

No Limits: Business-wise, there is no limitation or ceiling. Reliv rolls out the carpet where hard work can once again be applied with pride and anticipation. I know I can move forward with the help of mentors and other inspiring people.

Building a Better Future: Reliv allows people to step out of antiquated savings and retirement plans in order to enjoy life again, not as a last resort but as a business model with multiple income channels and a philanthropic opportunity — not to mention improving their own health!

Reliv Regimen: Innergize!, ProVantage

Wrestling to Running: I returned from Kuwait earlier this year and had been running to stay healthy. I was a wrestler in high school, not a runner. When I joined the Army, I had to get used to it and ended up running a lot on deployments to kill time.

New Mission: While overseas, I decided to see more of America by running across the country to raise money and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project when I got home. I needed something to keep me healthy during my long days of running.

Spreading the Word: I started using Innergize! for hydration and then added ProVantage for recovery and a protein boost. I drink it every morning before I run and haven’t had any issues so far. I’m glad to have Reliv nutrition on my side. Learn more about Tysen’s cross-country run at alloberamerica.org.

Because of Reliv: I Found Balance

Mair Hill / Wilmette, IL

Destined to Succeed

Perhaps it was fate that Mair Hill met Susan Santner in a half-marathon in June 2002. The two chatted and became friends, and when they met for lunch the next February, Susan pitched Reliv to her. By the end of the meal, Mair was convinced to try the products. A week later, she started her own Reliv business.

Balancing ActHill

Mair had been building a company for 17 years and was working 60-80 hours a week. She realized her schedule and priorities needed to change when she came home one day and her sons said “Hi, Dad!” without looking up. She closed her company and chose her Reliv business.

Finding the Balance

Reliv fit right in with her passion: helping people. “The ability to help people with their health has been amazing,” she says. Before Reliv, her son needed five surgeries to fight his chronic ear infections. Since Reliv, he has had only two ear infections in 10 years. Now that her boys are older, she has more time to work as a Reliv Ambassador too. “I’m so grateful for Reliv,” she says. “I’d recommend it in a minute. It can be everything you want it to be.”

Because of Reliv: I’ve Traveled to 46 Countries

Terry Renton / Richland, WA

Opportune Moment

Eighteen years ago, Terry sat next to a stranger on an airplane. He told Terry about a phenomenal business based on a great product. Terry decided to try Reliv products and both he and his father saw great results. At the time, he owned an engineering company with 150 employees.

Finding a SolutionRenton

“I was doing well, but knew the industry was going to shrink and that demand for my services would decrease,” Terry says. “I was still trading my time for money. I became a Master Affiliate in the first month and six months later decided to pursue Reliv as a business.” A few years later he left his corporate job and then doubled his income in one year.

Jet Setter

“The time freedom I have as a Reliv Distributor is phenomenal,” Terry says. “I had been traveling between 6-8 months per year for work. Travel is an entirely different experience when you’re doing it for fun instead of as a work chore. In the last five years I’ve been to 46 countries. I run an international business with Reliv and have worked with people in many different markets. This is the dream lifestyle Reliv has afforded me!”

Because of Reliv: I Don’t Rely on a Corporate Job

Cayla Collins / Goffstown, NH

Collins

Taking Control
When Cayla graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in economics, she felt lucky to get a job right away. But when she began working 7am to 7pm and her paycheck never increased, she decided to take control of her finances by starting a Reliv business like her parents. Cayla attended her first conference in August 2012 and it blew her away. She came home with a new perspective and excited about the opportunity.

Decision Time
“Back at work, I sat in my cubicle and was frustrated that I wasn’t out sharing Reliv,” Cayla says. “Three weeks after conference, I was laid off from my job. I had only been there for three months. The whole time the company had been saying that they were expanding and it turns out that they were outsourcing.”

Growing Fast
She decided to get serious about her Reliv business. Cayla earned a $17 check in September, but by December she had earned $675 and knew she was on to something. “Things started to click for me,”Cayla says. “So far, 2013 has been fantastic. I’m only 23 and I own my own business. I’m so excited I can’t stop myself from telling people about these products. It’s changing people’s lives.”

Because of Reliv: I Can Focus on My Photography

Stephanie Mazankowski / Giltner, NE

Mazankowski

Self-Directed
Stephanie was an occupational therapist for four years and learned quickly she didn’t like working for other people. Coming from a family of farmers, she always wanted to be self-employed.

Helping More People
Four months after joining Reliv, Stephanie met another Distributor who was a physical therapist. She told Stephanie she had helped more people with Reliv than as a PT. Stephanie decided she wanted that for herself. A year and a half after trying the products, Stephanie was able to leave her full-time job. That was eight years ago.

Freedom, Fun & Fulfillment
“My life as a full-time Reliv Distributor is a lot less stressful,” Stephanie says. “I have the amazing freedom to pursue interests that I really enjoy, like photography. I live in a small town and have gained a reputation as the unofficial town photographer. I don’t have to ask off work to go photograph town events and I don’t have to worry about an income from photography. I’m going on a mission trip to Zambia, Africa, for two weeks and I don’t have to request vacation time!”

Reliv: A Great Addition

KraudelTwo weeks after starting on the Reliv products, Linda Kraudel of Troy, IL, learned the brokerage company where she had worked for 22 years was preparing to lay off some of its workers. “I was looking for something with meaning and purpose that could replace my corporate income, so I became a Reliv Master Affiliate,” she says.
