Announcing a New Breakthrough in Nutritional Science

I’m just back from the “excitement and high” of the USANA International Convention last week in Salt Lake. What I love about being partnered with this company is they never cease to amaze me with their scientific advances and innovative products toward the goal of keeping us as healthy as possible.

USANA made an announcement this week at convention that’s changed the game for the nutritional industry and our business.

I wanted to make sure to let you know about it ASAP, which is why I’m hurrying to get this out this week!

They just revealed the next generation of nutritional science and cutting edge products, and IT’S LIKE DAY ONE in terms of the opportunity and possibility for this company and the people who partner with us.

So what’s the big announcement? It’s a patent-pending technology called InCelligence that uses cell signaling to tap into our bodies’ innate wisdom to nourish, protect, and renew our cells.

The two things that stuck out for me the most about what this means are:

1. It tells your body to make more antioxidants. The antioxidants your body makes are 100x more powerful at fighting free radicals than the antioxidants you eat. The InCelligence technology signals your cells to make more of their own so that more free radicals are neutralized, and the body doesn’t break down as quickly.

2. It tells your cells to renew their aging mitochondria. The mitochondria are where all of the energy is made. When mitochondria age they make less energy (ATP) and more free radicals. The InCelligence technology signals the cell to repair and renew the mitochondria so they can go back to making more energy!

To learn more about how InCelligence works in our flagship product called CellSentials, (multi-vitamin/multi-mineral) click to watch the video.

USANA is the only company whose products nourish, protect, and renew the cells of our bodies. Other companies do one or two of these things. Only USANA does all three, now with InCelligence.

If you want to become part of the exclusive community of wellness entrepreneurs spreading the word about these cutting edge products and helping to fulfill the vision of freeing the world of pain and suffering caused by degenerative disease,  click here to connect with me.

If you want to try products first, you can become a Preferred Customer for free and get them at a discount, let me know when you connect with me!

There has literally never been a better time to start a USANA business. This new InCelligence technology is the future of nutritional science, and USANA is the only one doing it.

If you have any questions, please call or email me.  I’m really looking forward to working with you as part of our community changing the face of health and business globally with USANA as our partner!

Be well on your wellness journey!



How to Build Your Anti-Rejection Muscle

Building Emotional Muscle!

Words of Wisdom from Christiane Northrup

No doubt, rejection hurts. No doubt, it cuts to the core! And, no doubt, it builds confidence!
Rejection is like no other emotional hurt. It’s central to our primal need to belong. In hunter-gatherer societies, rejection from our tribe meant life or death, we couldn’t survive alone. In the 21st century, being rejected is an anguish that we either learn to accept and rise above by ultimately becoming stronger or we allow it to hold us back. If we validate the rejection our ‘inner critic’ is off to races to seal the deal.

We all experience rejection. Choice Theory tells us that when we say yes to someone or something, we’re inevitably saying no to something else. In the fast paced, high tech, information inundated highway that we live in, everyone is making choices…this or that? Whether it’s a romantic refusal, a social snub, a business slight, or a family exclusion – the pain associated with rejection has been found in fMRI (Functional MRI) studies to light up the same neuroreceptors in the brain that occur when physical pain is endured. No other emotional pain effects this part of the brain in the same way.

Yet, just as we tear muscle fibers to build muscle, tolerating social rejection with a positive internal narrative builds emotional resiliency and confidence. When we feel it and accept it and honor our disappointment, we are then ready to move forward in our Hero’s Journey. We emerge stronger, more confident and can trust that something even better is on its way. One sure fire way to practice the fear of rejection is to seek it out on purpose. Go out and get as many rejections as possible. Can you drive me to Cleveland this afternoon? NO! Ok, Next. Can you loan me a $100,000 by Friday? NO! OK, Next. Want to join my business? I don’t know, tell me more. Ok…

Join Dr. Christiane Northrup and her sister, Penny Northrup Kirk and learn to go from fear of rejection to…next, and build awe inspiring emotional muscles.

Network or Die!

Did you know that “people need people” and in some cases when people don’t have human contact they can die?  Newborns denied physical contact with other humans can actually die from this lack of contact, even when provided with proper nutrition and shelter.  Older people who lack social contacts may be at increased risk of death if acute symptoms develop, because there is less of a network of confidantes to prompt medical attention.

So how does this relate to my wellness business?  Here’s my take on the importance of networking with others.

There are times when I just don’t want to be around people and want to hole-up at home and not see anyone.  For me that is a sign that my wellness business is losing ground – and could be at “death’s door”.  After all, independent business owners who don’t get out there and meet people,  don’t have any customers.  And then what kind of business would I have?

Working for yourself  is certainly different  than having a job working for a boss and being around lots of people all day.  There are always opportunities to make connections,  be seen and known and create new opportunities.  But when you work for yourself,  it is up to you to make those connections happen.

I’m just giving you a reality check in case you are about to embark on starting a business of your own and want to find out how to grow your business and avoid the “kiss of death” that happens to 50% of new businesses.

NETWORKING rules as a business builder and here’s why:

N – new connections are made with new people who may need your services
E – enjoyment happens when you learn about people’s hopes and dreams
T – trust develops when you connect with people on a regular basis
W – wonderful conversations often lead to friendships
O – opportunities arise to find even more people whom you can serve
R – rewards come from being able to help someone improve their life
K – kindred spirits show up the more people you meet
I – intimate conversations can lead to deeper relationships
N – notice what happens  when you give the gift of listening to another person
G – great things occur when great people get together

So if you are going into business for yourself, networking with people on a regular basis is critical – but pays off with great rewards.  And it is fun “getting to know you”.  James Taylor will tell you all about it!

So go out a meet someone!  If you are struggling with reaching out, connect with me and I’ll give you a complimentary laser coaching session to get you started.
