Dear VitaMist Family…

February has always been referred to as the month of LOVE.  For me, though, it means more than that.  It’s the month in which I was born (more years ago than I want to talk about).  It’s the month my husband past away.  It’s the month 9 years ago that my whole world changed.  Therefore it is the month of LOV, but most of all it’s a month of change.

Change, excuses and security, three words that seem to go hand in hand.  So many of us are scared of change, we make excuses, and we long for security.  We are all guilty of habits that prevent us from reaching our goals, prevent us from being “all we can be” and stop us from stepping outside of our comfort zone.

But without change, there would be no seasons.  We could be immersed in an endless winter.  We must embrace change, we must advance and we must move forward.  After all, isn’t change one of the basic values upon which VitaMist was built?  We do not accept the status quo; we do not accept that pills are the only way to take your vitamins.

This message of change is heard more and more on every conference and focus call.  VitaMist is evolving even more so into the Company of change and innovation.  We do things a little differently, and we are proud of that.  We are not scared of change.

“Excuses” and “security” often come with “change”.  We’ve all heard the phrases, “stop making excuses,” and “step outside of your comfort zone!”  I know it’s not always easy, but take my word for it. I did it 9 years ago, and now is your time.  Wear your lanyard proudly, talk to people about VitaMist, and invite people onto the calls.

To quote Benjamin Franklin, the American Statesman and Inventor-

    “When you’re finished changing you’re finished”

 

For this Very special LOV month, I wish for you from my heart:

    -Happiness – Deep down within.

    -Serenity – With each sunrise

    -Close and caring friends.

    -Love – That never ends.

    -A bright today – With much to be thankful for.

    -A path – That leads to beautiful Tomorrows.

    -Dreams – That do their best to come true.

    -And appreciation.- of all the wonderful things about you.

Sorting and Selling – I Love Cake!

Written By: Graphics Department - Feb• 06•15

bill_small_pic-brief

I love cake. In fact, just yesterday I had a hankering for a slice of Nichole’s (Nikki) double-chocolate death cake that is, without question, the best cake you will ever eat.

The problem was Nichole lives across town, and the only way a heaping fork-full of ultra-moist, sinfully rich cake was going to touch my lips was if I made it. So I thought about it, pondered life without it, and at one point even considered purchasing a cheap imitation at the local grocer. But after some serious soul searching, the answer was clear.

Bake the cake.

So, I grabbed my recipe box and pulled out the first 5 x 7-index card, and here’s how it read;

                  The Count’s Chicken Surprise.

                  Ingredients:

                 4-large chicken breasts, two eggs, celery, cream of chicken soup, red food coloring, NO GARLIC.

“Hmmmmm. O.K… lets see here, maybe I’m reading this incorrectly… somewhere here shouldn’t it say something about chocolate?

“I’ll keep reading.”

Quarter the breast and fry until golden

“Hey! What the heck is this? I’m after cake and I’m getting poultry!

“Gosh darn it! I really, really want some cake. Maybe it’s on the back of this card?”

O.K., by now you are thinking who on earth would spend all that time continuing to read a recipe that is obviously the wrong one? Is this guy a moron? Why doesn’t he just move on to the next recipe card and keep going until he finds Nichole’s double- chocolate death cake?

Because I don’t know the difference between sorting and selling.

Do you?

Pulling out one recipe card and staring at it, wishing and hoping that it is the recipe you seek rather than recognizing it as the wrong one is no different than sitting at your brother-in-law’s kitchen table for hours selling your business opportunity.

Sorting is the art of recognizing the wrong person quickly by allowing them to identify themselves. You can’t say enough right things to the wrong person, but I can assure you that the majority of people in our industry will spend 30-60 minutes selling their product or opportunity to the wrong person, who just doesn’t know how to tell them no.  Let’s face it, if you do try to sell them, you will be selling them on doing everything else they need to do to be successful.

This, my friends, puts the “P” in pain when it comes to prospecting, and ultimately becomes the reason 80% of the people who start, quit!

Keep in mind that the most genuine reason people are not interested in a Network Marketing Opportunity is because they don’t want to sell, and they don’t want to hit up their friends and family.

Now as you sit on the phone for an hour and a half explaining your comp plan and the number of major publications your company has graced the cover of, you say to your prospect in all sincerity, “It’s got nothing to do with selling!”

Right….

Think about this, how many more people would be attracted to you and your business if the entire sorting process took 30-60 seconds? What if you told them that you encourage them not to talk to family and friends?

More importantly, how much better would it make your life?

As the corporate trainer for VitaMist, my job is to teach our Team members how to utilize our system and become master prospectors/sorters, regardless of their skill or experience. As my friend Tom Davis so often said, “In networking, we get paid for results.” The same can be said for VitaMist, and the results our team members that have implemented our system are experiencing are phenomenal.

Yep…we have a killer recipe for prospecting success that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. -http://www.VitaMist.com

In fact, you may find that prospecting is a piece of cake.

Health Tips (Cardiovascular Disease Statistics)

Written By: Graphics Department - Feb• 06•15

irma-wordpressAs you will have seen, our February Product of the Month is talking about the heart. So, in keeping with that theme, I wanted to take the space in my monthly column to draw everyone’s attention to the latest, frightening, statistics published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

As a nation, we are not very healthy.  We have allowed ourselves to become overweight.  We eat too much, we eat processed, nutrient-depleted foods, and we exercise less and less.  All of this has resulted in the following statistics:

Heart Disease in the US

  • In 2008, over 616,000 people died of heart disease.
  • In 2008, heart disease caused almost 25% of deaths—almost one in every four—in the United States.
  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2008 were in men.
  • Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease. In 2008, 405,309 people died from coronary heart disease.
  • Every year about 785,000 Americans have a first coronary attack. Another 470,000 who have already had one or more coronary attacks have another attack.
  • In 2010, coronary heart disease alone was projected to cost the United States $108.9 billion. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.

Hypertension in the US

  • About 1 in 3 U.S. adults—an estimated 68 million—has high blood pressure.
  • High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, and kidney disease.
  • High blood pressure was listed as a primary or contributing cause of death for more than 347,000 Americans in 2008.
  • In 2010, high blood pressure was projected to cost the United States $93.5 billion in health care services, medications, and missed days of work.
  • About 1 in 2 U.S. adults with high blood pressure has it under control.
  • Almost 30% of American adults have prehypertension—blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal, but not yet in the high blood pressure range. Prehypertension raises your risk for high blood pressure.

Heart Disease Throughout the World

  • CVDs are the number one cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause.
  • An estimated 17.3 million people died from CVDs in 2008, representing 30% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, an estimated 7.3 million were due to coronary heart disease and 6.2 million were due to stroke.
  • Low- and middle-income countries are disproportionately affected: over 80% of CVD deaths take place in low- and middle-income countries and occur almost equally in men and women.
  • The number of people who die from CVDs, mainly from heart disease and stroke, will increase to reach 23.3. million by 2030. CVDs are projected to remain the single leading cause of death.
  • 9.4 million deaths each year, or 16.5% of all deaths can be attributed to high blood pressure. This includes 51% of deaths due to strokes and 45% of deaths due to coronary heart disease.

Do you know anyone who is a candidate for a heart attack?  Maybe it’s time to talk to them and explain how serious the problem has become.  Maybe they need to read this Newsletter and decide NOT to join the statistics.  It is time for change.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

It seems almost unbelievable that it is 2015.

I have a wonderful idea! How about we make some New Year’s goals this year and really try hard to achieve them.

 

Let’s think about it…. What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What level in VitaMist, would you like to achieve by the end of the year? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life? Think about it…. I’m sure you can add so much more to your list.

 

Take a piece of paper and a few hours of your time, and write it all down – as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose.

 

The New Year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story this year by setting goals.

 

 These are my New Year wishes for you;

 “Live your life to the fullest, and make each day count – Don’t let the important things go unsaid – Have simple pleasures in this complex world – Be a joyous spirit and sensitive soul – Take those long walks that would love to be taken – Explore those sunlit paths that would love to oblige – Make tomorrow happier by going there in ways that really matter – Try hard to achieve the goals you have set – And don’t ever forget that eventually dream-chasers become dream-catchers.”

 

From My Heart With LOV – Sari
