How Reliv Helped Me Launch My First MLM Business

By Reliv Director Elizabeth Hill

As I walked across the stage and received my diploma, I had never been more uncertain about my future career. I had spent hundreds of hours working toward my music degree, rehearsing, and preparing for a career that I couldn’t find. Every music job posting that I found online required 3-5 years of experience, moving across the country, or was simply uninteresting. Since I was getting married a few months after graduating, I knew that moving really wasn’t an option, and I wanted a job that would allow me to be a more present wife and, eventually, mother. 

Searching For The Answer

A few weeks after graduation and I was at my wit’s end. I was praying for an answer when my mother-in-law sent me an ad that had been posted by a Reliv Distributor. The Distributor and I set up a time to meet and after hearing her story and how Reliv had started, I knew I was being presented with an incredible opportunity. I had looked into epigenetics years before and was shocked to discover that Reliv had released the very first epigenetic supplement: Lunasin. After years of battling all ten symptoms of PMS, along with heartburn and back discomfort, I knew that a company that had such amazing scientific achievements had to be able to help me. Best of all, Reliv offers amazing support to new Distributors with online training, marketing tools and a 100% buyback and money-back guarantee. We felt confident in our decision to join, and haven’t looked back.

A Perfect Match

My husband and I worked our way up to the highest profit level, and admittedly took a break from the business. Fast forward six months later, and I had quit my job to give my Reliv business more attention. Within the first few months of starting the products, I experienced improvements in my menstrual cycle. Also, I was able to eat anything I wanted with no indigestion, and my back discomfort was much improved.

What It Takes

I knew it would take three things to build a Reliv business: consistency, a love of our incredible products, and most importantly, a heart that truly cares about other people’s well-being. Because of this, I’ve been able to supplement our income ranging up to $500 a month, and we’ve already earned bonuses along the way.* Shortly after the release of our new RLV Hemp Extract product line, we had our first business partner join us, and we are so excited about how many lives he is going to impact with our amazing products and opportunity. We continue to add new people and are excited to see our business grow.

Meeting My Goals

I’m doing this business not simply because it gives me the ability to stay home and be a devoted wife, but also because I have always had a deep desire to help people overcome the challenges that they face. Because of my Reliv business, I get to wake up every day and ask myself, “Who do I know that needs help with their health?” and “Who do I know that needs help with their financial situation?” Reliv allows me to become the person that I have always wanted to be.

6 People Skills that Will Help Grow Your Business

By President of Sales & Marketing Tom Pinnock

We are in the people business so it only stands to reason that the more people skills we have the better we’re going to do. So with that said, let’s take a look at some things that we need to master.

Listen to Understand
At the top of the list is listening. It has been my experience that the best listeners are always the best networkers. It’s really simple; listen to what people want and show them how Reliv can help them get it. As a rule of thumb, we probably all need to talk less and listen more.

Act with Integrity
Another fundamental that is essential is integrity. It’s important that we act with honesty and never hype or exaggerate the products or the opportunity. Reliv was built on integrity, honesty, and always doing the right thing. If we say we’re going to do something, then let’s do it. Have that kind of reputation and people will follow you anywhere.

Work Diligently
Let’s be honest: To be successful in any business it’s critical to have a great work ethic. It’s not talent, good looks or IQ that will take you to the top. You must commit to working hard if you want to succeed. Indeed, if you treat Reliv like a business and work hard, then there is no limit to what you can accomplish. It’s an easy business when you work hard, but a tough business if you don’t. And never forget: if you love what you do you’ll shake the world to pieces and it will feel like you’re not working at all.

Think Optimistically
Be positive. Nothing in Reliv or in life is more important than having a good attitude. Stay away from “stinking thinking” and know that whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right. Squash those snipers in your mind that tell you you can’t do it and fill your mind and social calendar with encouraging thoughts and people. Embrace the knowledge that if so many others have done it, so can you.

Embrace Inclusivity
Tolerance for others is essential in the people business. Remember, Reliv is for everyone so that means you will have folks in your organization who don’t agree with your political or religious views. Stay away from topics that divide and instead focus on the ones that bring us together. In Reliv, that means wellness, entrepreneurship, and feeding the hungry. We can all agree on these important issues.

Lead By Example
And finally, always lead by example. Nothing rings more hollow than someone telling you to do something that they won’t do themselves. The speed of the leader is always the speed of the pack. If you want people in your organization to sponsor distributors and customers, then you need to be sponsoring distributors and customers. If you expect your downline to attend conferences and win trips, then you need to be doing the same.

So there you have it. Be a great listener, always be honest, don’t be afraid of hard work, be positive, embrace differences, and lead by example. Do these things and we’ll see you at the top.

Opportunity of a Lifetime

Cassandra Anderson, Mt. Zion, Illinois

In September, I met with the owner of the martial arts school my son, Curt, had attended. I lost Curt in an accident last spring at age 22, and was exploring the possibility of setting up a scholarship fund in his memory. The school teaches so much more than self-defense — students receive life skills and learn how to set and achieve personal goals. The school made a huge difference for Curt, who benefited from positive male role models and built his self-esteem.

After the accident, [President of Reliv Asia-Pacific] Scott Montgomery called and asked if there was anything Reliv could do for me. I answered that Reliv had already done everything. You see, starting a Reliv business allowed me to stay home with Curt and spend every moment possible with my son as he grew up. There could be no greater gift.

At the martial arts school, we agreed that $1,500 would be a good place to start for the scholarship fund. That night Reliv announced August’s Top Ten Bonus earners on the Monday Night Call. I had finished 8th in the nation and earned a bonus of, you guessed it, $1,500! Building my Reliv business will allow me to continue to fund the scholarship so that others can benefit the way Curt did. Some things happen for a reason.

Help!
Don’t be shy about asking other people for help and give others help in return. Expand your circles by meeting new people everywhere you go (especially Reliv corporate events like MATS). Be open to receiving wisdom from others who have built a successful business. Hire teams of helpful people. Hire your kids. Don’t be afraid to ask for computer help, tax help and household help when you need it. Be available to help anyone who might need your expertise, or even just your time. When you help someone with their health or income, it does your heart good. Continue reading “4 Business Tips from a Reliv Presidential Director”
