Keeping Our Dreams Alive With Shaklee


Ann S. - Second generation Shaklee Business Leader, wife, mother (and soon to be grandmother) Anne (Senior Coordinator, OH) is having some of her best months in Shaklee. In the first three months of 2015, she’s grown her volume by nearly 36% as compared the previous three months. Check out how Shaklee has made a difference for her family and her tips for earning an incentive trip.

I was 18 years old when my parents, Fred & Rose (Key Coordinators, OH), joined Shaklee. At the time, my dad worked 60+ hours a week in a management position so he wasn't looking for any more work. 

But when a family member introduced him to the Shaklee opportunity, he was smart enough to see what Shaklee could mean to our family. 

My mom initially resisted the idea of another 'job' but she fell in love with the products and their business was born.

They switched gears from working for someone else's dreams to creating their own, and because of that decision they have enjoyed travel all over the world on Shaklee. 

Nearly 40 years later, they own a beautiful property on a private lake, they have traveled the world, still enjoy working their business part-time and their Shaklee income still allows them to do or buy anything they need or want. 

But even more than that, their Shaklee lifestyle also helped them to live more vital lives.

I have always loved the products but it wasn't until I had my own family that I saw the beauty of the business. 

I always knew that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. I wanted to be there to witness my children’s 'firsts,’ help out in their schools, coach their sports teams, and just be with them -- without putting a financial strain on our family. 

With Shaklee, I have been able to do that. And my Shaklee business has also given me a greater purpose --to share this gift with other families who might have similar goals.

Our Shaklee income allowed me the opportunity to fire my boss, be a stay at home mom and help my husband Doug retire from his job three years earlier than we had planned.

And now that Doug is retired, he’s been a very important part of building our business and inviting others to experience what we have with Shaklee. 

We know too many people who retire on a tight budget and feel 'stuck'. Shaklee helps us to keep our dreams alive as we continue to make new and exciting plans for growing our family's future.

One of the greatest gifts of owning a Shaklee business is the intangible benefit of growing and helping others grow. As I have strived to be better and reach goals that I have set, I have experienced the excitement of seeing myself develop as a person and a business woman. 

And when I help someone else discover their hidden gifts and talents or I'm able to help them push through their doubt and come out on the other side stronger and more confident it is extremely rewarding! 

Doug and I couldn’t be more proud of the hard efforts of our Team Thrive Leaders and builders who have fearlessly and unselfishly shared the Shaklee Effect™ with others!

EARNING ATLANTIS

When incentive trips were announced in the past, I would always think 'wouldn't that be nice' as if it were some far-fetched dream that someone else would ultimately enjoy. I never believed that I would actually be on that trip.

That all changed when Shaklee announced they were going to Atlantis, in the Bahamas. As it turns out, sliding down that pyramid slide in Atlantis was on my bucket list! I realized it was “that voice” in my head keeping me (and all of us!) from doing something worthwhile. So I made the decision to change the channel.

I put a photo of the Atlantis hotel on my screen saver and I looked at it every single morning. I mentally picked out our hotel room and pictured us out on that balcony, breathing in the ocean air, listening to the waves hitting the beach and feel the warmth of the sun. In my heart, we were already there. I had no doubt we would achieve that trip. Then I went to work helping people.

That year, we earned the trip to Atlantis and the funny thing was, our room was only three rooms down the hall from the one I had picked for us on my screensaver! That's no small feat when you consider that the hotel has over 3,400 rooms!

The very next year we helped two of our teams to join us on the next Shaklee incentive trip, which I found even more rewarding. I can't wait until we have hundreds of our team members joining us on trips!”
