August Team Tip | Get Keto

0008044_slender-fx-keto-caramel-bars-10-ctI’m getting a lot of questions like this:

       I keep hearing about the Keto Diet. What’s the big deal?

Ketogenic diets have become popular for weight loss and optimal health. Here’s why…

Most people already know this:  In order to lose weight you have to eat less calories than you burn.

But here’s what they DON’T realize…

The #1 reason why people fail on most diet plans is because they are hungry.
And here’s the bigger thing to keep in mind…
The reason why people are hungry is because they follow a low nutrient, low fat weight loss diet. BIG MISTAKE.
So what’s up with The Youngevity Keto90 Lifestyle Plan?
To start, it is high in nutrients and high in fat which will prevent you from ever being hungry… making weight loss easy!
What else?

The Youngevity Keto90 Lifestyle Plan has many more benefits than just weight loss. Following this plan has shown to drastically reduce cholesterol levels, heart disease, and cancer.

It will also drastically improve your digestive system, detoxify your body, and strengthen your immune system. It will fix virtually every health problem and give you energy like you have never had before!

June Team Tip | Everything Duplicates

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 4.06.57 PMDespite everything you’ve been told, there IS a guarantee in network marketing: everything duplicates.

Yeah, yeah, I know you’ve been told (by everyone, including me) that you need to WORK for duplication to take place. That’s wrong. I was wrong. No matter what…

Duplication is guaranteed in your business.

But here’s the rub: while it’s true that good stuff duplicates, so does bad stuff.

Massive-DuplicationAnd bad stuff duplicates hard and fast.

Here are just a few of the mistakes I’ve inadvertently taught my downline when they first were merely prospects:

Fire-hosing

imagesYou know what that is, right? It’s when a prospect asks for a proverbial glass of water and we turn on the firehose, spewing massive amounts of detailed information that, at best, goes over their head, and at worst, overwhelms them.

By fire-hosing the prospect, we teach them to over-talk and under-listen. So that’s exactly what they’ll do when they start talking to their own prospects.

Instead, ask questions. Then ask more. Do more listening, and less talking.

Black Bindering

2012-09-07 2012-09-07 001 023Yesssss. My first MLM mis-step. Ah, how sweet it was to spend hours upon hours thickening up that useless waste of three-prong nonsense. But it was so much easier than picking up the phone. Sound familiar?

The longer you spend contemplating the business instead of sharing it, the more time you’re going to waste. And worse, if you have that thick binder of collected info on everything from the products to the comp plan, you’re going to show it to people. BAM! You’ve just paved the path for procrastination duplication.

Instead, jump right in and show others how to do the same.

Exhaustive Researching

The more I fall in love with products, the more I want to heal the world. As my mom would say, “Bless her heart!” Don’t get me wrong — there’s nothing wrong with wanting to help sick people get better (so long as you aren’t playing doctor and dispensing medical advice). But it does get tricky when you add hours of pick-a-product research every time a prospect complains of foot/back/head/knee swelling/pain/discomfort/damage.

77a5167672491ffc64853af386c58aefb39b354bf594b27996f66f73ea9a6baaThis is the most dangerous duplication, because once you paint yourself as a researcher, not only will your prospects ask you about every minor physical issue, but your distributors will do the same for all of their prospects and their distributors’ prospects.

Before you know it, you’re a full-time researcher and there’s no time for networking. You’ve also made your business focus one of products rather than opportunity. Uh oh.

Instead, treat your business like a game of chess: you make a move, then your prospect makes a move. You don’t move again until they do. You know why? Because most times, they won’t.

You read that right. You will lose prospects if you take this approach. But you know what? You would have lost them anyway — but you would have lost them after spending hours of your valuable time trying to help them. The bottom line is if they aren’t willing to partner WITH you to improve their health, they certainly won’t bother paying for supplements or committing to taking them regularly.

So the next time someone asks for help with their health, have them fill out Doc Wallach’s health questionnaire self-assessment. Then help them make the best decision and get them enrolled.

Duplicate with Caution

dangerThe point is that what you do WILL duplicate. So when your upline cautions you to “follow the system” and you’re more interested in Fleetwood Macking it (You can go your own wayyyyyyyyyyyyy… go your own way-ay-ay), RESIST THE URGE and listen to your sponsor. Everything will duplicate. Just make sure you’re duplicating the right behaviors.

May Team Tip | How NOT To Crash and Burn

My favorite advice to dispense is always someone else’s. That way, we can learn and grow *together*.

[In truth, if I’m giving advice from personal experience, it usually means I’ve screwed something up and have the bruises to prove it, so I much prefer to learn my lessons from someone else rather than learning the hard way. Ya with me??]

So today, we’re learning from my favorite master of personal development: Brendon Burchard. His new book, The Motivation Manifesto juuuust might be my favorite personal development book of all time. Yes, it’s that good. Grab a copy and devour. And while you wait for Amazon to deliver…

Let’s take a look at why achievers crash and burn. This month’s team tip is for leaders — whether they be up-and-coming or already hitting it out of the park — who aspire to maintain success themselves and help foster it in others. (That’s you, right? YES!)

I found myself relating to all four of Brendan’s achiever pitfalls. Womp womp. I wonder… how many of them describe YOU? Ready to find out?

Thankfully, Brendon gives us content delivery options. (Isn’t that nice of him?) Watch the video below, or keep reading for the highlights. Then drop me a line and tell me which of these four you want to work on first. And I’ll be right beside you… working on me.

Summary

Why do achievers crash and burn so often? It’s usually because of these four horseman of achievement:

The Need to Help Everyone. The more you succeed, the more everyone wants your help. It’s because you’re so good at so many things. This is a beautiful blessing, and it’s wonderful to help people — until you overcommit yourself. It’s time to define the few critical people in your personal life that you truly want to help and focus on them. View all outside request from others as obligations that can tear you away from what and who you should be focused on.

Lost focus. After attaining success, it’s easy to be tempted by the abundance of new projects available to you. Achievers love to build, and once they build they love to move on, forgetting that mastery and scale only come if they stay focused. If taking on new projects, proceed slowly, one at a time, dedicating enough time to each project so that you can serve with real focus and excellence. You don’t want to be a mediocre do-er of everything; you want to be a master of realms.

No Skill Acquisition. After gaining a skill and reaching success, many achievers stop growing. When they were climbing, they were ferocious in their learning – reading books, trying new things, interviewing experts, asking tons of questions, measuring progress and testing outcomes. Don’t stop that just because you’ve “made it,” or else you’ll soon lose your edge and passion. If growth leaves the scene, you get bored and sabotage what you once loved.

No Celebration of Success. Many people knock off goals and achieve big things without taking time to reflect and enjoy their successes. Don’t forget the challenges you’ve overcome and the small successes you have each week. Give yourself the credit you deserve for having come this far. Integrate success by journaling about it, telling your friends and family about your wins, throwing some parties. Allow yourself the emotional satisfaction of growth so that your journey feels worthwhile. If it feels worthwhile, you will keep doing it, you will keep climbing, you will keep innovating, you will keep contributing, you will keep feeling what we call #TheChargedLife.

Recommended Supplements for Pregnancy

This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

image1I am often asked which supplements I took while pregnant with our girls, and which ones I’ve taken since.

We joined Beyond Organic in July 2011 (during the “insider” pre-launch program) and found out we were pregnant shortly after. What a perfect storm. Detoxifying my body of Taco Bell and adding cultured dairy was a real shock to the system. And one I’m thankful for every day.

While pregnant with Samantha, I devoured the Beyond Organic Amasai and SueroViv. Now that she’s four years old, this big girl still consumes both every day of her life in her morning “piña colada”. You can find that toddler mocktail recipe here. It’s the perfect vehicle for getting her “mighty 90”.

While pregnant with Alexis, I added 90 for Life to my diet. I huffed our peppermint essential oil on those few days I had an upset stomach. I loved Pollen Burst from ProJoba for energy. (Use Pollen Burst tabs if you do not want caffeine.) I added Cal/Mag from Biometics, Probacillus Plus from ProJoba, and Rebound during my workouts (which included Tai Chi, yoga, pilates, and light weight lifting at least twice a week up until 38 weeks.)

Of course, choosing a healthy diet was important to my pregnancies, too.

Aside from my personal recommendations, there is a protocol written by Richard Renton (aka Dr. Dirt) which is easy to pass along to pregnant moms (and moms trying to conceive) as follows:

Pre-Conception

Both mom and dad should be consuming a Healthy Body Start Pak 2.0 (90 for Life) each month. Add additional Plant Derived Minerals for added potency. (Any flavor of PDM will do, but the herbal offering is best for constipation.)

Once Pregnant

418404_3422515723799_391927517_nCertainly, you’ll want to consult your healthcare provider. I was thrilled when my OB said 90 for Life looked great. It had everything (and more) I needed from a pre-natal vitamin supplement. You can add Folic 500 (1st trimester especially) and B12 500, but I did not.

And as reported in a recent Youngevity newsletter, “Although zinc is most notably known for its cellular function and immune-boosting support, new research has found that it is also highly beneficial for pregnant women.” Pick up some great-tasting zinc lozenges here.

Additional Product Support

According to ProJoba co-founder and nutritional coach Adrienne Gold, “Pollen Burst tabs (formerly Polbax) won’t interfere with a prenatal and definitely provide anti-inflammatory action. They make your breastmilk even healthier. Women in Europe have been safely taking flower pollen for decades for pregnancy and fertility.” She also suggested taking it when you wake in the middle of the night for a feeding, so that in the morning, you’ll feel as though you had a full night’s rest!

Adrienne Gold’s Protocol for Pregnancy and Nursing

  • Pollen Burst Tabs (great for natural, caffeine-free energy).
  • Probacillus (helps constipation and heartburn, and is so important for passing probiotics to your baby).
  • EFAs or Projoba Omega (amazing for brain development for baby and brain focus for mom).
  • Pollen Burst – excellent food source and all day energy – as long as the one cup of green tea caffeine is ok.
  • Profemme can also really help with the hormonal hair loss.
  • Full can help with the hair loss and so can the Botanical Spa shampoo and conditioner as they were designed to protect hair follicles form hair loss as well.
  • Also consider a very gentle detox, like Pollen Burst Plus – Daily Liver Formula, to clean up the body and breastmilk.

Happy (and healthy) pregnancy to you!

Piña Colada Toddler Mocktail Recipe

IMG_2461

Four-year-old Samantha Smith gets her nutrition-packed “piña colada” every morning (without fail) thanks to her daddy, who makes and shakes it with a lot of love.

There’s no better way to get the “Mighty 90” into her tiny-but-growing body.

And here’s why that’s important:

Your body needs 90 essential nutrients

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 1.27.08 PMTrue health and wellness is only possible if it radiates from a solid, fundamentally-sound center.

There is a core group of 90 essential nutrients that your body requires and can’t produce on its own. But it’s not just about taking these 90 nutrients. It’s about absorbing them.

90 Essential Nutrients

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 1.27.37 PM

Did you know that only 8-12% of the typical nutritional supplements available today are actually absorbed by your body? That means that approximately 90% of typical supplements are flushed down the drain.

Youngevity’s supplements are 90-98% absorbable! Why is there such a difference? The secret is our exclusive source of plant-derived minerals that dramatically increase bioavailability (absorbability).

We combine superior raw materials with state-of-the-art processing and production, so it’s no wonder that Youngevity products get you results.

Samantha’s Daily Piña Colada Recipe

So how do we get these nutrients into our kid? We mix them all together and she LOVES it. She’s been enjoying this morning routine since we joined Youngevity two years ago.

Mix all ingredients together until smooth and serve. Refrigerate leftovers and consume within 1 day.

April Team Tip | Be The Change. See The Change.

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 9.40.02 PM

Everyone in Youngevity seems pretty focused on the Summit “Be The Change” Recap. But I think it’s time we look toward the future:

…The future of the company,
…The future of this team,
…The future of YOU.

I overheard one person describe a YGY event by saying, “I come for the hugs, and stay for the education.”

Most people think Summit is about learning. Sure, there was plenty of that.
A few think it’s about news & announcements. Yep, plenty of that, too.
Everyone knows to expect motivation and inspiration. And boy did we get that in spades.

But the people who really “get it” know that it’s about your next six months.

Do you have a PLAN to meet your goals this year? Summit-goers do.

The best part of a Youngevity event isn’t the seminars or the picture-taking or the taste-testing of new products (though those parts are pretty awesome).

The best parts of a Youngevity event are…
meeting new team members and building life-long relationships,
strategizing with team leaders about where to take their organizations,
leaning into our upline and corporate team for help and direction,
planning our future as a TEAM and writing a map to REACH OUR GOALS.

Guaranteed:  Those who attended Summit will make more money this year.

Forget about “news”.
Forget about “announcements”.
Forget about “who”, “what”, “where”, “when” and “why”.

Summit was about HOW.

We learned how to prospect. We talked about how to invite. We were trained on how to close. We lived and breathed how to share Youngevity products and new services — every single day.

When it comes to the real meat of a Youngevity event, you can’t “catch it on a replay” or “pick it up from a recap”.

YOU HAVE TO BE THERE.

So here’s the great news: you can register NOW to join us for the biggest event in Youngevity history: The Annual Convention 2016 in Salt Lake City.

But don’t come for the wrong reasons.
Come to build. Come to grow. Come to win.

Indulge in a creamy peanut butter cup that will also provide your body with high dose of antioxidants. Triple Treat™ Peanut Butter Cups may be the healthiest peanut butter cup you’ll ever have.

And pour the Youngevity coffee.

If you know me personally, you know I am what some might call a holy-mother-of-Mary-get-that-girl-coffee-before-you-talk-to-her NON-morning person.  Post-java, however, I’m delightful.

Did you know…

Coffee may help to boost metabolism and brain power, as well as potentially lower type 2 diabetes risk, among many other perks,” according to The Alternative Daily.

coffee_saves_lives___neon_by_str4yk1tt3n-d8p8s4rIn fact, 2 – 4 cups a day has been proven to decrease your risk of alcohol-related cirrhosis by 43 – 65%.

Whether you like to grind, french press, pour-over, drip, or Y-cup it up, Youngevity coffee (which, for the record, is ORGANIC and FAIR-TRADE) is the healthiest mug-filler you’ll find.

Mmmm. I can almost taste it now. Time for another cup…

And my friends get 30% OFF with my YGY membership.

The article concludes with, “As far as brewing the healthiest cup of coffee, start with organic, fair-trade coffee beans, and skip the sugar and artificial creamers!”  You can read the full article here.
