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 Can Focus on My Photography

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!”

Treated Like a Disney Princess

More than just a rewarding career, Reliv is about living life on your own terms. Part of that is earning rewarding vacations such as the 2012 Disney Cruise earned by more than 40 Distributors. Read on for an excerpt of a letter sent to Senior Vice President of North American Sales Steve Hastings from Ambassador Lori Doerneman from Goddard, KS upon her return from the cruise… Continue reading “Treated Like a Disney Princess”

Entrepreneurs in the new Economy

The week I quit my job to start my own business, the market crashed. The Dow Jones was down by 700+ points. I was in panic mode, thinking that there would be no opportunities for the self-employed. Turns out, I was wrong.
 Ally Lapore, founder of OurMilkMoney.com — a directory of self-employed parents — mentions in her blog about the recession that “smaller businesses, for the first time in decades, have a fighting chance. And in case you haven’t noticed, small business is exploding. They have something big businesses don’t have: a personal touch.” Continue reading “Entrepreneurs in the new Economy”
