Corporate Ex. turns Sales leader

What a testimony to this business opportunity!  Shaklee’s corporate executive, Laura Evans, is now a Sales Leader in the field.  Here is her story:

Laura Evans Joins the Shaklee Field!

Laura EvansWe have exciting news to share! After ten years of encouraging people to join Shaklee as a distributor, Laura Evans, our Senior Vice President of Sales has finally decided to listen to her own advice. Laura has decided to become a Field Leader in our business, which makes her the first senior executive at Shaklee to leave corporate to be a distributor!

We are thrilled for the opportunity this creates for Laura, and of course we wish her the greatest success, but we are also very excited by the fact that a top industry professional of Laura’s stature and credentials has chosen to pursue building her future as a Leader in our business. This is unprecedented and an outstanding example of the opportunity that Shaklee represents.

We’d like to share Laura’s message below in which she explains why she believes this is the next great phase of what has already been a brilliant career in our industry.

I am so excited about the future growth I see for each of us in Shaklee. I am so confident in the incredible potential Shaklee holds for us as Independent Distributors that I want to pursue this rather than my corporate career. For many years, my heart has longed to be in the Field as a Shaklee Leader helping others to achieve their goals on a more personal level while developing my own business.

Recently, doors have opened up for me enabling me to make the shift from corporate, and I was able to acquire a Shaklee distributorship. It is full of loyal and committed leaders and customers. It will be my honor and privilege to work for this team helping them to achieve their goals. And I have absolute confidence in the talented and dedicated team inside the company led by President of Shaklee North America and Chief Operating Officer Dan Rajczak and new Senior Vice President of Sales for North America Justin Rose to support each of us along the way. 

For years I have been promoting the powerful business opportunity I see available in Shaklee. Shaklee has the winning combination of what any entrepreneur would look for in a successful business model:

  1. Products of the highest quality. My family and I have been using Shaklee products for 10 years now, and the difference in our health and vitality is immeasurable.
  2. Partners in business whom you can trust. With the leadership of Roger Barnett and Dan Rajczak, I feel confident in the alignment of values, the foundation created for the next 50 years and the future direction the company is taking. I truly believe there has never been a better time to build a business in Shaklee, and I don’t want to wait any longer to take advantage of our trajectory.
  3. People. Terrific people. Shaklee is a family to me. It is wonderful to be surrounded by people with integrity, both internally as employees and externally in our vibrant Field leadership. And I also look forward to being in a position to help others around me on a more personal level.
  4. Potential. A Shaklee business is at the intersection of all major growth trends: health, wellness, weight management, green cleaning, the potential to build internationally, and the trend of millions wanting to build a home-based business. The future for all of us in Shaklee is truly unlimited.

Many of you who know me won’t be surprised by this decision. In my heart, and from the time that I first fell in love with this industry, I’ve identified very closely with the Field, no matter where I’ve worked. But when I came to Shaklee in 2004, I felt I’d come home. And since that time, the desire has been growing in me to be what I feel I am destined to be, and that’s what you are – entrepreneurs with a mission and a cause to make others’ lives better, and to help people to achieve their greatest potential in every possible way. That is what I believe in, and that is what I look forward to dedicating my life to every day. As one of you.

I look forward to seeing all of you at a Regional Event in April, and at our 2014 Shaklee Live event in Long Beach.

Best wishes for good health and success,

Laura Evans

Pyramid or MLM


Esteemed One,

I’ve created a 2 minute video with my thoughts on Pyramid or MLM as an “all-boats-rise-to-the-top” method of beating the 1% at their game, up there on top of their corporate empires.

Your life and mine don’t have to fit into this model.  We have an option in MLM, Multilevel Marketing, escape from the Pyramid.

free-poster-rfv6zx57gu-THE-BIGGEST-PYRAMID-SCHEME-EVER I would love to be your coach and help you reach your goals.

The Triduum and Easter, darkness to joy

Gentle Reader,

The great Triduum or three holy days ending triumphantly in Easter begins today.  I took on one new thing for Lent in response to the half page of suggestions our Saint Mark’s Episcopal worship committee sent out, activities that would increase mindful living.  When I read on the list “Write a letter to someone, stamp and mail it,” I thought about the boxes full of letters I have from my husband, Don Bell, and from my daughters when they went off to college, plus much of the correspondence from dear friends who meant so much to us and to me over the years.  These letters are treasures, little vignettes of life, soul pictures living on paper.  I have a grandson in college.  I wrote to him and quoted some passages from his grandfather’s letters to me.  Don died before any of his grandchildren were born and I have been writing the memoir of our early time together with these ten grandchildren in mind.  Ben’s response surprised me.  He wrote back to me asking for more.

Writing a letter requires slowing down, with intention, choosing words carefully, pouring over Don’s letters for just the right passage to share.  It felt like holy work.

Our whole-heartedly secular culture does not help the practicing liturgical Christian any more than it supports the Muslim or Jews in following their holy calendars.  I felt this tension more acutely this Lent than ever before.  A new business possibility came into my inbox and has swept me off my feet, nearly obliterating the contemplative aspect of these 40 days.  The battle between successful entrepreneurship and prayer put me in an anxious state.  I discovered a left over bag of Reese’s Peanut butter cups, Halloween candy, in the freezer.  I made myself a cup of tea, sat down and ate them.  All.  Excitement over this new thing that promised expert training in network marketing and a compensation plan that create wealth kept me awake.  The combination of sugar and sleeplessness resulted in a head cold.  Is my immune system that stressed by a heap of sugar and lack of sleep?

Have you been able to pin point a connection between sugar consumption, lack of rest and catching a cold?  Not too far-fetched. WebMD published an article on the immune system which includes comments on sugar.  From their page on Cold, Flu & Cough Health Center:

3. Eating foods high in sugar and fat: Consuming too much sugar suppresses immune system cells responsible for attacking bacteria. Even consuming just 75 to 100 grams of a sugar solution (about the same as in two 12-ounce sodas) reduces the ability of white blood cells to overpower and destroy bacteria. This effect is seen for at least a few hours after consuming a sugary drink.

For the whole article, click here:  10 Immune system booster and busters.  I knew this.  I ate the stuff anyway, without thinking about the consequences.  The priets are available for confession on Good Friday.  For a person who claims to care for my body as a holy thing, I feel stupid and guilty.  I will probably just take a long walk and eat tons of Swiss chard and kale, drink Throat coat tea and shovel in the Vitamin C.  Eating sugar doesn’t seem like it deserves the sacrament of confession.

I’d love to hear how this Lent/Passover is going for you.  Anything come up that effects your health?  Perhaps we can all support each other.

Do not forget the joy.  There will be 30+ people in my living room on Sunday.  The college and highschool, middle school aged kids will be full of conversation as well as ham and potatoe, asparagus and salad.  It will be glorious and promises not to rain so we can spill out into the back yard.  They don’t want to give up dyeing eggs even though it is doubtful they will hide any.  Children want to hang on to the traditions even though it means not being cool.  I love it.


Be Well, Do Well, Keep Moving
