Reliv Silver Ambassadors Margaret and Leonard Nafziger of Bryan, Ohio, were happy just to make extra grocery money for their family of 10 children through their Reliv business. Leonard had a corporate job and Margaret operated a custom drapery business for 30 years so she could stay home with the kids. They needed to find another way to make ends meet when she closed her business in 2006. Continue reading “Setting Goals, Achieving Dreams: Margaret and Leonard Nafziger”
Anne works as a nurse’s aid and has always desired to help people and their health. “My daughters used to poke fun at me for offering vitamins to my house guests when they were feeling under the weather,” she recalls. In the summer of 2011, when looking for a natural, quality product to restore her mother and brother’s health, Anne discovered Reliv and a business opportunity that could have been designed just for her.

The Greatest Finish Line: Reliv
When Mair Hill races, she doesn’t usually socialize with other runners. That changed when she met Susan in a half-marathon in June 2002. The two chatted and became friends, and when they met for lunch next February, Susan introduced her to Reliv.
She also owned a company she had been building for 17 years in manufacturing representation. For a while, she juggled both, working 60 to 80 hours a week. But when she realized she was missing out on time with her husband and three sons, she chose Reliv, which has allowed her to make her own schedule. Although Mair had been wary about it, by the end of the meal she was convinced to try Reliv. A week later, she decided to start her own Reliv business.
“The biggest impact is that I’m very close to my boys,” she says. “I know that it’s a direct result of Reliv.”
However, she didn’t lose what she loved about running her own business, either. “I knew what I wanted most was to teach and train,” she says, which has become her favorite part of Reliv. “I really enjoy seeking new opportunities to meet new people and hear their stories.”
Joining Reliv also fit right in with her passion: helping people. “The ability to help people get the results they want with their health has been amazing,” she says. “It’s not about how good I am. It’s about helping others.” She has seen this impact in her own family firsthand. Before Reliv, her young son needed five surgeries to fight his chronic ear infections. Since Reliv, he has had only 2 ear infections in 12 years.
Although introduced to Mair by chance, Reliv has given her a new friendship and complete transformation to her life and her family. “I’m so grateful for Reliv,” she says. “I’d recommend it in a minute. It can be everything you want it to be.”
Advice to New Distributors
“Bob Montgomery always says the only wail to fail in Reliv is to quit. I completely agree. Reliv is a simple business. The trick is to do what you need to do to succeed in the time you want to succeed. No one is gauging you or managing you. Your expectations are your own. You have all of the support you need, you just have to want it and seek it out.”
Four years ago, Marscia Fleagle was suffering from acid reflux, chronic yeast, joint problems and her hair was falling out. Her 14 hour days on the pool deck as a swim coach were becoming taxing, and she was also busy in her 21st year of home educating her 10 children.
When she saw her friend Margaret Nafziger had been using Reliv products and that her family was seeing positive results, she tried it for herself. In three days, she was already beginning to feel better. “I had a sense of wellness I hadn’t had in probably 15 years,” she says.
Although Jeff was skeptical, he decided to try Reliv after learning of their sister-in-law’s health issues. Since Jeff was on board, Marscia knew her family could begin investing in the company. All their children (including six medical professionals) have become believers in Reliv, too.
Marscia was hesitant to start a business because of her busy schedule, but has found it rewarding. She has been able to help children she coaches with her Reliv recommendations, including one child with eczema and one who had needed five medications. “I just see people who are hurting,” she says. “I just can’t keep my mouth quiet about it.”
Her experience with Reliv has dramatically changed her family, too. Her son Josh needed shock therapy and to ice his muscles after his swim meets, but after using Reliv has been able to train harder with less pain than before. “I wouldn’t give them anything but the best,” she says. When her son Jason visited Reliv headquarters in St. Louis, he was happy to find that the company had the same values as the Fleagles. “Now there isn’t anything holding us back,” Marscia says. “Reliv is truth and you need to get that truth out there.”
Becky Bauman is a Reliv Senior Director from Drayton, Ontario, Canada.
Presidential Directors Dan and Fern Utz of Hicksville, Ohio, have traveled a long road with Reliv. “We had used Reliv products years ago, but just kind of fell away,” Fern says. “I was feeling really run-down and we sorely needed some extra income — I had no idea we would find both in the same place!”
Dan, however, wasn’t sold on the business at first. “I thought I saw a conflict in my life. I’m a professional guitarist and I operate a prison ministry that involves a lot of fund raising. I wasn’t sure it was right to be out there selling Reliv as I was raising money.”
Dan finally overcame his reluctance when he learned more about Reliv. “I saw a company committed to helping others achieve health and financial independence and that really resonated with me.” With both Dan and Fern involved, their Reliv income grew from a couple hundred dollars a month to over a $1,000 a month. “It was an awesome opportunity to give people hope, health and financial freedom,” Dan says.
Their involvement with Reliv has also allowed them to continue in their ministries, which helps them reach more people. “We share Reliv wherever we go,” he says.
They also appreciate the financial freedom that has come with their business. This May, the oldest of their daughters married. “Reliv was a big part of that, knowing we have financial stability,” Dan says. The money from the business is also helping them plan and leave “dream room” for the future. “I think I’m going to do music the rest of my life, [and] I have the financial stability [to do that],” he says.
As they look to the future, their vision is clear: “We’re looking forward to impacting more people.”
