Each of us has chosen to be involved in this business for our own reasons. Our business goals and dreams come down to our own personal WHY. A strong why isn't always enough to motivate us to do those things required to build a successful business, if we don't maintain healthy business habits as well.
There are two KEY elements that can limit our business success:
1. Having a weak belief system.
Sometimes, because many compensation plans pay residual rewards, it can lead to complacency or a period of just "hanging out". Feeling like the commissions are coming in and it will just continue to grow. This isn't generally the case. If we want our businesses to grow we need to work. We need to find new team members, and treat the ones we have kindly, and help motivate, inspire, and find the tools to move their businesses forward.
If BUSINESS SUCCESS is our goal, and we're working toward our "WHY", why do some struggle to find the motivation? Casual effort and lukewarm commitment weaken our belief system and decrease our paychecks. If we don't put in the effort, we don't have a strong enough belief system. This business takes total commitment to our BUSINESS and our GOALS.
SIX PRINCIPLES TO HELP REACH SUCCESS IN OUR BUSINESSES
1. Establish a support system (upline, mentor, team member, downline).
2. Practice business skills. Build confidence.
3. Follow the plan. Listen to your leaders.
4. Stay connected and continue learning.
5. Don't be distracted by other opportunities that come your way.
6. Don't stop. There is no time off! Stay immersed in your business. Average commitment won't help achieve success.
Kristen Goodman, who I am very lucky to have as an incredibly creative friend and business partner, has been playing around with some of our fun new products. If you're looking for little ideas to add to your crops or other events, look no further. Kristen has created some! What I love about Kristen's ideas is how she uses the "Shop from your own Store" concept and has used products from each of our 3 memory keeping brands: Heritage Makers, Rhonda Anderson's Our Memories for Life, and Anthology by Lisa Bearnson.
Thanks Kristen for sharing your ideas and creativity with all of us.
The end of summer is closing in on us, but we have some Distributors whose businesses are growing like never before right now. Congratulations on your Rank Advancement and business growth last month.
Regional Marketing Directors (RMD)
The structure required to make the rank of Regional Marketing Director is the basic structure that the entire compensation plan is based on. Once you've learned how to successfully obtain this for yourself, your next step is to encourage and teach your team members to do the same.
Congratulations to our newest REGIONAL MARKETING DIRECTORS!
EXECUTIVE MARKETING DIRECTORS (EMD)
Executive Marketing Director is a level that is important for a couple of main reasons:
1. It's important and motivating to continually grow and increase rank in your business.
2. Your Coding bonuses increase.
Congratulations to our newest EXECUTIVE MARKETING DIRECTORS!
And from our YGYI INTERNATIONAL team we have
A HUGE congratulations to all of you on your growing businesses. It's wonderful to see your teams growing and to celebrate with you in your success!!!

I have a lot of respect for companies who take the extra step to open their products up to 3rd party verification, to ensure they are all that they claim to be. As a shareholder in Youngevity International, a company I am also happy to be a Distributor for, I was thrilled to see the recent certifications for some of our core products. Each of these products have become integral parts of my daily health routine.

Youngevity Products Earn Prestigious NSF Certification
San Diego, CA - September 16, 2015 – Youngevity International, Inc. (OTCQX: YGYI) (www.YGYI.com), a global direct marketer of nutritional and lifestyle products and also a vertically-integrated producer of gourmet coffees for the commercial, retail and direct sales channels, has announced that several of its products, including its flagship Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0 has earned certification from NSF International.
NSF International has certified the products Pollen Burst™ Plus with SOD, Chocolate and Vanilla Slender FX™ Meal Replacement Shakes, and two products that make up the core of the Youngevity signature 90 For Life nutrient philosophy, Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0 and Beyond OsteoFx™. The NSF Certification, which is recognized by regulatory agencies at the local, state, federal, and international level, demonstrates that a product complies with all standard requirements for safety, quality, and performance.
“The cornerstone of all the Youngevity products is quality, safety, and efficacy,” said Youngevity International Chief Executive Officer, Steve Wallach. “Third-party testing is critical, ensuring that our distributors and customers know they are getting the highest quality products and what we say on the label is truly contained in our products.”
NSF International, a non-profit, regulatory agency whose mission is to protect and improve global human health has set forth strict standards and procedures for the products it certifies. From extensive product testing and material analysis to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product’s development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn certification.
“The NSF Certified mark on our products adds another layer of confidence to the 40 years of Dr. Joel Wallach’s research, the 20 years of anecdotal evidence and testimonials, and the numerous academic research studies we have initiated on the safety and benefits of our products, we feel it is integral to keep providing respected support to our products,” said Steve Wallach.
Along with the NSF certification, Youngevity International has received the IFOS certification for its Ultimate EFA Plus product, ensuring the standard of fish oils is the highest in purity, potency, and freshness. Youngevity will pursue NSF and other standard certifications for many of its products, to position the Company as the highest quality source of supplements and products in the industry.

Every month Youngevity's memory keeping brands offer a number of new product releases and specials, some that include FREE SHIPPING as well. September's newest releases looked especially fun and I'm excited to share them with you!
Our newest addition is ANTHOLOGY by Lisa Bearnson. Every month, Anthology has an Autoship option that includes 3 categories:
- Card Kit
- Embellishment Kit
- Stamp Kit
See details here. Each month the themes are varied, but one thing I believe will stay the same. They look creative and FUN! You will also get FREE SHIPPING after the 2nd month your autoship is established.
Every month OUR MEMORIES FOR LIFE releases a new scrapbooking collection, and when you set yourself up with an AUTOSHIP account, have I mentioned that you can get the monthly kits with shipping for FREE??? September's collection is Katie Pertiet's "Fall Flourish", and it includes beautiful papers with Fall themes on one side and Halloween on the other. Everything is easily interchangeable and coordinates beautifully.
HERITAGE MAKERS digital publishing Studio is an amazingly flexible system rich with templates, art, and ideas. Six new art collections were released for September, including Katie Pertiet's new Fall Flourish collection. All Studio art is FREE when you're an HM Club member.
Hi, I'm Lisa! I have worked in the memory keeping industry for nearly 15 years, and now because of the merger of Heritage Makers and Youngevity, I get to enjoy an expanded product line and learn about so many unique and top quality products.
