The Perfect Opportunity

As an entrepreneur, I understand the need to innovate. My 20+ years in the nutrition industry have taught me that market leaders must innovate or be consumed by the global marketplace. I’ve also learned that innovation is not the result of chance; it is the result of action.

Creating an Innovation Engine
In 2001 I partnered with Dr. Alfredo Galvez to expand his work with the lunasin peptide he discovered in 1996. In 2005 I founded Soy Labs, LLC and assembled a team which included Dr. Galvez to focus on commercializing lunasin-based ingredients. Collaboration is key to long-term business success, so I sought out business and research partners that allowed Soy Labs to leverage creativity, experience and resources and innovate more quickly.

Adopting the open innovation model allowed Soy Labs to draw on the knowledge of outside researchers and move forward with lunasin technology. This access to external resources inspired us to partner with the University of Missouri, the state of Missouri and federal government to create the Missouri Plant Science Center in 2010. The MPSC was a critical component to further our research, refine our processes and firmly establish Soy Labs as an “innovation engine.” Continue reading “The Perfect Opportunity”

Family Ties: I have four sisters and we are all Reliv Master Affiliates! We’ve found so much success working together. Our focus is to improve the health of those around us.
Oh, Canada: My focus was on sharing the health benefits of Reliv products, and I ended up earning a trip to Jamaica! It’s rewarding to represent Reliv Canada and finish as the top Distributor in November-December in all of North America. My plan now is to build up more savings for my retirement.

Working the Room: A No-Fear Guide to Networking Events

One of the best tactics you can use to build your business is attending networking events. But walking into a room full of strangers can be intimidating even for a seasoned business builder. Here’s how you can make the most out of this opportunity. Continue reading “Working the Room: A No-Fear Guide to Networking Events”

It’s time to go to work!

This blog entry was submitted by Don Gibbons, Senior Vice President of Distributor Success.

First, I apologize. The following thoughts are extremely basic. Since you are already a Business Builder, you may not want to read them…

I’ve now helped hold Relìv meetings in eight cities over the last five weeks — eight fantastic meetings, full of people who are using Relìv every day and loving it. People who are earning money. People who are building a business.

“Building a business” — what does that mean?

I really think people get caught up in how that sounds. The truth is, if you drink Relìv shakes — and then you simply tell someone else about that — you are building a business!It is just that simple.

How do we tell people? Sometimes I can’t believe that we actually have to answer that question. If you sit in a movie theatre, watch Titanic, walk out and someone asks you what you thought about the movie… you’d tell them! You wouldn’t need any training to do that. You would just tell them the truth about what you just saw. That’s it.

Relìv is just as simple! Drink the shakes. Then tell someone who’s not drinking the shakes how you feel. And our business works the same way. You joined Relìv and are now earning money. As you talk with more people about Relìv, you will earn more money.

At December MATS we focused on ACTION — and working a PLAN. Whether you were there or not, I want you to answer a question right now:

Do I want my business to grow in 2011?

If you answered ‘yes,’ let’s go to work.

Not yet a Director?Identify who your first MA will be. Put their list together with them. Help them set some appointments; help them take action! Share Relìv at every opportunity. Work with Distributors in your upline, use all local support, all events, everything you can get your hands on — and get moving!

Already a Director? Identify the new MAs you will add this month. Identify where they are in your organization. Then go to work! Make sure they are working their own plan of action. They have set their sights on MA. They understand that 5,000 in volume is the target. And they are IN ACTION — working their list, doing appointments, working with you (or their sponsor) and using all available support.

Go as far as possible to finish December STRONG! What does that mean? Work with everyone you can to help them reach as far as they can. You have just GOT TO set up a big 2011…

Relìv is launching a new product in February!

Believe me, you just have to have your business as far forward as possible beforethe announcement.

It is time to go to work. YOU are a Relìv Master Affiliate. If you have EVER believed that big things can happen in your business, please… believe it now!

Let’s go to work — together.
