As I write this letter, I am preparing for our upcoming Homecoming. This event is being held July 17th -19th, and I just can’t wait. This is going to be a really amazing 3 days of training and education, and a chance for me to meet some of our tremendous Distributors.

As a part of the event, we will be holding breakout sessions for the Ladies of VitaMist, and I will personally be presenting some very special ladies with L.O.V. Angel Awards.

The L.O.V. Organization is really beginning to mature into an effective powerhouse as our ladies begin to recognize their own talents, which may have been hidden or suppressed for far too long, for various reasons. This is an organization dedicated to making changes, and we are beginning to see the results.

We are also beginning to see results in another area of the Company. It is hard to believe, but it has been many years since we put on a Distributor Event like the one coming up in July. A lot has happened in those intervening years, much of which you will know about if you have been with the company for any length of time. But what this event says to me more than anything is that we are on our way. In these times of economic gloom and doom, VitaMist offers a beacon of hope, and those with the foresight and vision are seizing that opportunity with both hands.

The Company is growing, and this is being achieved through the hard work and dedication of some very special people. People like my tireless son, William (Bill) and his wonderful wife, Irma; or the people on The FIVE ON FIRE; and people like YOU. You are all responsible for this growth and success, and you will all reap the rewards of your efforts. Now is a great time to be a part of VitaMist, because together we are making a difference.

In next months’ Newsletter we will be sharing more about the up coming Homecoming events.

With L.O.V.

The First Impression

Written By: Graphics Department - Mar• 31•15

By William Deihl

Did you ever hear the expression “You only have one chance to make a first impression”? Well, it’s true, and that first impression that you leave with anyone you meet is THE most important. If you want to share VitaMist with other people, the way you approach them on your first meeting will determine the relationship’s success, or lack thereof.

So here are a few tips to help you leave a GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION. These days, being good is not good enough, you have to be the best.

What should I wear?

Dress your best! Even in these days of increasingly casual corporate dress, people representing a company are usually expected to look sharp. A man should wear a tie and a jacket. A woman should dress similarly and conservatively. Women should wear minimal jewelry and keep their makeup simple. If the prospect that you are calling on will be wearing a suit, you should as well. Remember, you can’t go wrong by dressing your best.

When should I arrive?

Arrive ten minutes before your scheduled appointment. If you arrive any earlier, sit and read in your car or go to a coffee shop to set up the meeting spot. If you are meeting at a house or office, arriving too early may make you seem overeager, and put too much pressure on the person you are meeting to see you earlier than the appointed time.

Should I invite the prospect out to lunch?

If your appointment is before lunch and you are building a good rapport with the prospect, inviting them to lunch is often a good way to improve the relationship. But if rapport is developing slowly, a lunch invitation may seem awkward and weaken your standing.

Should I stick to business on the first visit?

On an in-person visit, try to talk at least briefly about a non-business topic. This tactic will usually make everyone feel more at ease and may even relax the prospective client into being more open-minded about your product. Try discussing a non-controversial trend in the industry or a personal hobby. But don’t force conversation in this direction if the prospect doesn’t seem interested. Don’t let non-business conversations take over.

When should I try to close?

Your best chance for closing will occur after you have established a good rapport and presented your product or service as carefully as possible. Determine in advance how much time you will have with the prospect. Always make sure you know what your time allotment will be and then try to time your first attempt at closing about three-quarters of the way through your appointment. This will maximize your time for making the presentation while allowing you plenty of time to discuss any objections.

The great advantage of face-to-face meetings is that you can read body language. Is the prospect listening? Which points does he or she seem to pay the most attention to? This helps to focus your presentation.

Don’t forget, if you feel that a sale isn’t forthcoming, you should always try for another goal, for example, a trial of the products, or a follow-up meeting.

Remember, it is much easier to share VitaMist in person than it is over the phone!

Health Tip April 2015

Irma-D

By Irma Deihl and Dr. James A. Martin

Throughout the last month, the major focus for VitaMist was weight loss. If you are doing a wellness program every month through VitaMist, then you have received complimentary packets of one of our greatest products, B-Slim. Weight loss and B-Slim were also the major focus for our product calls in the past.

Why are we paying all of this attention to weight loss? Quite simply, we believe obesity is the number one health problem the world is facing. It has reached epidemic proportions, and it is only getting worse.

You, our VitaMist clients, are a group of health conscious people, otherwise you would not be using the world’s best nutritional supplements. It falls on all of us, as health conscious individuals, to continue to promote good health and proper nutrition as a lifestyle.

For this month’s Health Tip, it is my great pleasure to present an article on this subject from Dr. James A. Martin, the Senior Member of our Medical Advisory Board.

Obesity is now considered to be an epidemic in the United States, not only affecting adults, but our children as well. The diseases associated with carrying around even a few extra pounds include diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, sleep disorders, joint pain, and now some cancers. Society tells us that we need to be thin for aesthetic reasons, but we need to maintain the correct weight for health reasons. Being fat is killing us.

At the most basic level, to lose weight, we need to burn off more calories than we take in. In order to do that effectively and in a healthy manner, we need to approach the problem from several different angles, and not fall prey to fad diets, magic pills or the latest exercise machine being sold on infomercials.

First, restrict caloric intake. To kick start weight loss, you need to start out with a low-calorie diet, the precise details of which depend on the health needs of each individual. Don’t follow a crazy fad diet, which never works in the long run. I always suggest regular, everyday food that you can buy in the grocery store and cook at home. Include all of the food groups, with few restrictions save for refined sugars, saturated fats, somewhat fewer “white” carbs (rice, potatoes, pasta, bread), and place an emphasis on whole fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats (nuts, avocado, fish, etc.)   In this way, you’re not going on a “diet”, per se, but just re-learning how to eat correctly and give your body the nutrients it needs to operate at its most efficient. The idea is to GET THE MOST NUTRITIONAL BANG FOR EACH CALORIE!

As an interesting aside: recent studies have shown that long term calorie restriction (1800-2000 per day) actually leads to a much longer life span. The body learns that it doesn’t have any resources to waste and it becomes super-efficient at the cellular level. You find that you actually have a much higher level of energy and brain function. Some experts believe that if we follow this type of eating plan, we can live to 120 or even older.

Second, we must elevate metabolism, or the burning of caloric energy. This can be achieved in several ways:

1 – Exercise. Minimum of 3 times a week for 30 minutes. This should be a combination of cardio and weights. Building muscle helps keep the body firm while losing fat, but muscle also burns a lot more calories that fat. After a good cardio workout, the metabolic level remains elevated for 2-3 hours.

2 – EAT TO LOSE – Minimum of 3 times per day. Do not skip any meals, especially breakfast. It is essential to start burning calories first thing in the morning and to get a good energy base for the rest of the day. By giving the body nutrition several (at least 3) times a day, the burning off process never really stops. If you do skip meals, it forces the body into conservation mode and it starts storing fat for future use.

EATING TIPS:

Do not eat too late. There should be a minimum of three hours between your last meal and going to bed. You must give your body time to use what you’ve just put into it; otherwise it goes into “storage” in the form of fat.

Eat slowly. Put your fork down between each bite. Chew and swallow and only then raise the fork for the next bite. You get full sooner and with much less food intake.

Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate. You fill the plate up with much less food and the brain sees a full plate (equals a lot of food) instead of a big empty plate with very small portions.

Cut out the sodas, especially regular soda, but even diet.

3 – Nutritional Therapy – It is essential to make sure you do not feel an overwhelming sense of hunger. B-Slim can help with this. It is highly effective in controlling appetite and has absolutely no possibility of becoming habit forming. It contains dietary fiber to help with regularity and the cleansing of toxins from the body as your health improves. As far as the taste is concerned, it has a delicious lemonade flavor and can be used with plain water or added to a fruit juice, iced tea, etc. All in all, it is highly effective from several different perspectives and is an invaluable addition to any weight loss program.

Product of the Month April ’15

Written By: Graphics Department - Mar• 31•15

d-stressWhenever you are under stress, it is essential that you make sure you take your supplements, and there is not a better way to take your daily vitamins than with VitaMist oral sprays.  They are convenient, compact, easy to use, AND great tasting.

D-Stress is one of our original and most popular products.  We live in stressful times, and despite all the modern conveniences, life just seems to keep getting more and more stressful.  It has been shown that times of stress can cause depletion of essential vitamins, especially the B-vitamins, and this in turn can lead to depression, fatigue and illness.  Let VitaMist D-Stress help replace some of those lost nutrients.

D-Stress is a B-complex product which is supplemented with additional vitamin C and an herbal extract of no less than 14 different herbs which are widely reported to have a calming effect.  In addition, D-Stress supports a healthy immune system and circulatory system.  All of this, in a smooth and pleasant chocolate tasting spray.  Let us help you in times of stress!

Did YOU realize that the Product of the Month is also a
BUSINESS TOOL?

Selecting the featured product(s) is always very difficult.  There are two purposes behind the Product of the Month program – first, we want to reward all Distributors who commit to a regular monthly order, and second, we want everyone to experience all of VitaMist’s different products.

What do you do with the Product of the Month?  Did you know that there are many ways you can use this free gift to help your business?  You can use the free tube as a sample to hand out to potential clients and future distributors; give someone a tube and let them try it for a month.  Alternatively, keep the Product of the Month and use it as a tester.  This way, you can let hundreds of people try the benefits of VitaMist.  Let people find out how good they taste, how effective they are, and how easy they are to use.  If neither
of these ideas appeal to you, you can use the free tubes as just good old profit!  Selling the free tube is like a $25.00 bonus EACH AND EVERY MONTH.

***Now you can choose your Product of the Month for a additional $3. ***

In the 32-year history of VitaMist March has always been founder’s month!   It’s hard to believe that he passed away 9 years ago last month, but the legacy he left behind will go on forever.

For those of you who had the privilege of knowing our founder, you will understand when I say he was one of those individuals who seemed to be bigger than life. This poem of Mother Teresa’s, that I believe I have shared with you before, rather sums up the way he felt and lived his life.

“Words To Live By’

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;

Forgive them anyway.

If your are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough;

Give the world the best that you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it’s all between you and God;

It was never between you and them anyway.

-Mother Teresa

 

One of Joe’s favorite quotes was one of Mark Twain’s: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

 

Let VitaMist help you reach your dreams and realize your ambitions.
