Doing What You Want To



One of the benefits of owning your own business is being able to schedule breaks in your day. Like today I was able to walk with a friend. :)

Being in charge of your own business can be work, but it can also mean more time available to do other things that are important to you.

It is possible to do both, but you need to ask yourself, "What kind of work do I want to do?"

Many people say, "I don't want to sell to my friends. I don't want to bother my family and friends and beg them to buy off of me."
I can relate to that as I am like that. Would you like a business then where you educate and teach rather than sell? 
We have a business for you that allows you to do just that. Become an educator, a teacher, a consultant, whatever you choose, we can show you a business that allows you to do it comfortably in your own way.

Then there are others who love to sell things to people that they need and want a business that can provide that opportunity. 
You can actually own a business that supplies products people use and want every day. A consumable product that people use every day and will re-order over and over. 

What if you don't have a lot of time? Can you still own your own business?
I get asked that a lot. 
Most people lead very busy lives between their jobs, family and other commitments and feel there is just no time left to start a business.
If I could show you a way to take even just moments a day and still start a successful business, would you be interested?

Most people think starting your own business takes a large amount of money and most do not have that kind of funds.
I hear you and that was me. I started with no money, literally.
For most businesses that would be true, but I actually can show you a way to start your own business with little to no startup costs. It is possible and we can help you.

Though we may all be different, have different needs and desires, we all basically want the same thing. Work that is fulfilling and fun. A career that blooms under our strengths and helps us improve our weaknesses.
We want to make enough money to live comfortably and even quit the jobs we hate.
We want to be able to make enough to give to the charities and causes we support.
And we want time. Time to do the things we enjoy with the people we love.

Is there such a business? Is there really a business for me?

Yes there is and it can be tailored to meet your exact needs and methods of operation.

It takes a first step, a leap of faith in the form of a question.

Take that first step and ask us some questions. We're here to help you and the best way we can help you is to answer your questions.

Just click the "Contact Us" tab up top and send us your questions. We will be happy to help you discover the right business for you.

All it takes is the desire to, "Do What You Want To."

Science Talk: Breastfeeding Support



Do you know someone who is interested in breastfeeding their baby?

When my son was born I remember the challenges we faced and I am so happy I sought help and was able to nurse him into the healthy child he is today. I naturally had a ton of questions and I’m sure you did, too.

The subject of breastfeeding and support for moms who want to breastfeed is really popular. Many new moms have so many questions and while there is a ton of information out there, it’s nice to have the answers in one place and delivered to you from medical professionals who understand the benefits and the challenges.

We have a wonderful audio recording this month that discusses some of the most frequently asked questions about breastfeeding with additional suggestions.


This short audio is packed with some great information and it can be listened to on any device or as a podcast. I think you will really enjoy it.

Feel free to share this with a new mom or mom-to-be you know! Knowledge is power and a new mom will soak up all the good info they can get.

Want to know more about having a healthy pregnancy? Shaklee’s blog, Naturally has several wonderful articles on how to have a healthy pregnancy.

Healthy Blood pressure - Is this a concern for you?

Keeping your blood pressure in the healthy range is doable even if you have a family history of high blood pressure.
The best time to work on having a healthy blood pressure is before it begins to creep up, however the steps you take either before you have high blood pressure or after are the same - a healthy diet rich in the nutrients that support healthy blood pressure, like mentioned in the short video here, and supplementing with them if your body is requiring more than you can get from diet alone.

Along with a healthy, active lifestyle you can have a healthier blood pressure.
While supplementing to prevent disease is easier than treating it, you can achieve a healthier blood pressure even if you are currently having problems.
There is a process to this and it should not be done without working closely with your doctor. Please do not stop taking any medication in the hope this will cure your high blood pressure.
We work with you and your doctor, helping you to incorporate the nutrients into your diet and monitoring your blood pressure in a safe way, thereby allowing your doctor to adjust your medication as your health improves. This takes time and effort, but it is so worth it.
If achieving or maintaining a healthy blood pressure is important to you, be sure to contact us for a personal consultation. We are happy to work with you and your doctor to find the right solution to meet your needs.
Healthy blood pressure is possible, all it takes is you to take control of it!

Arm Yourself For The Cold & Flu Season



It’s October, have you already been sick?

As you can imagine, we are really focused on prevention of illnesses. We fully believe that a strong immune system is your best defense and we are dedicated to helping you build your immune system.

I’m sure you are already aware at how expensive being sick can be. In addition to just feeling awful, you lose money in days off of work, either to care for yourself or a sick child. You also spend a lot of money at the doctor’s office and pharmacy.

Wouldn’t it be better to not get sick at all? Even if you do succumb to a virus, many people who have made the investment of building a healthy immune system seem to have less severe symptoms and a shorter time down.

We have some wonderful immune boosting ideas as well as what to do at that moment when you feel something starting to come on. We can teach you how to have a “Natural Medicine Cabinet” to go to when you and the family are getting invaded by viruses.

Don’t wait till you and the kids get sick, prepare to do battle with the cold & flu season now! We can help you get ready and arm you with all the battle tools you’ll need. Be sure and contact us today to learn how.

Here are some of the items I keep in our “arsenal”, the kitchen cabinet for when we are exposed to a virus or feel like we are getting something:

Vitalized Immunity                         Garlic
Nutriferon                                       Zinc
Vit. C                                               Vita-Lea
Optiflora                                         Defend & Resist

If you are a member of Shaklee you have probably received our recent postcard, “Say Boo to the Flu”. This has a picture of some of the items we recommend. If you mention the postcard when you call me, I will send you a free gift, just for asking about them!
Be sure and get with me to learn how to keep you and everyone in your home healthy!

Vitamin C – The Infection Fighter


Do you know why you need to add Vitamin C to your diet?

Vitamin C boosts the immune system, this we all know, but it also has many other benefits:

  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Helps the body absorb iron & calcium
  • Maintains cell integrity
  • Protects against free radicals 
  • Natural antihistamine, helps allergies
  • Reduces risk of heart disease
  • Reduces risk of cataracts
  • Increases resistance to ligament and tendon injuries


How to know if you are deficient in Vitamin C:

  • Experience stress
  • Chronic infections
  • Frequent cold & flu
  • Allergies & asthma
  • Bruise easily & bleeding gums
  • Nosebleeds
  • Varicose & spider veins
  • Slow healing wounds & fractures
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen glands
  • Anemia


Your body is capable of many things, but it can’t make Vitamin C. So we must get it from our diets, but getting enough Vitamin C is nearly impossible from food alone. We must supplement, especially during the cold & flu season.

It is very important to choose the right Vitamin C. 

Synthetic Vitamin C is worthless as your body doesn’t know what to do with it. It doesn’t recognize the made up chemical compound since it isn’t the real thing. 

Some “natural” forms of Vitamin C can contain toxic chemicals and they often don’t contain the other compounds found in nature that go along with it. Therefore the benefits are limited.

Why we choose Shaklee’s Vitamin C is because it is natural, it’s naturally manufactured to retain all the nutrients found in nature, including the Vitamin C and contains no synthetic chemicals or additives.

Available in Sustained Release and Chewable formulas, we have two great varieties to meet your needs:


  • High-potency Vitamin C
  • Proprietary sustained-release system that delivers the Vitamin C equivalent of one-and-a-half oranges every hour for five hours
  • Helps maintain natural antioxidant defenses, cell integrity, and the health of eyes, teeth, gums, bones, muscles and blood vessels*



  • Ideal for children or adults who have difficulty swallowing tablets.
  • Great citrus flavor


Now that you realize how important Vitamin C is, be sure you have it in your arsenal to fight against the germs and viruses this season!
