Did you know that in a pair of feet there are 250,000 sweat glands? The soles of our feet contain more sweat glands and sensory nerve endings per square centimeter than any other part of the body. This knowledge makes foot care really important, and I suppose that since I haven't really considered myself a "foot person" there is a huge case for changing my attitude. No, I still won't touch your feet.
A few of our Soul Purpose products are perfect for caring for our feet, and I loved how Barbara Tarantino and Lynn Rininger, two of our amazing Consultants, created this fun foot care gift bag to share at the memory keeping event they hosted. It includes: Soul Food Foot Scrub, and Foot Balm from our Soul Purpose line, and a pair of cute socks.
YOUNGEVITY SOCIAL is a new program that provides TRAINING RESOURCES and HOST REWARDS for sharing your business through in-home or online events. Under the direction of Sean Brown, Co-Founder of Mialisia, we are in the process of creating a program to help all Distributors have the tools they need to build and grow their business through parties, classes, social events, and workshops.
WHAT MAKES OUR SYSTEM DIFFERENT?
- Our top Distributors from various companies are sharing their expertise and working together to create the best resources and training materials for you to select from.
- Distributors choose which brand(s) of product they are most excited about, and that they can personally share the best way possible, to be the focus of their events.
- Hosts and party attendees both have access to wholesale pricing.
- In addition to Host Rewards, there are also Customer Rewards.
- It's a hybrid model combining direct sales with opportunities to add residual rewards through auto-ship choices, and signing up distributors. Our compensation system is the best available when it comes to rewarding team building.
- You receive an automatic 30% commission when you have your own $100 autoship on file. Your autoship can be whichever product brands you choose and can be changed each month.
WHAT CAN ADDING YOUNGEVITY SOCIAL EVENTS DO FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
The most important part of our business for the long term, is duplication, but it all starts with an introduction. A Youngevity Social event is a fantastic way to introduce our product to others.
What can happen to your income as you embrace Youngevity Social?
Party averages are $500 per party.
If you hold 4 parties in a month 4 X $500 = $2000
30% commission = $600 additional in commissions you didn't have last month.
Teach your team to do the same and you'll see what can happen over a year's time.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
During the pilot phase you need to send an email to our SOCIAL SELLING DEPARTMENT with your name, email address and Youngevity ID, and they will set up your account. Then ask a member of our team to add you to the Social Selling Facebook group. You'll begin receiving email communication, you'll obtain an account that enables you to enter your party orders and access host rewards, and you'll start seeing great tips shared by those who are also part of Youngevity Social.
WHAT RESOURCES DO YOU NEED?
Below are some basic resources to make your IN-HOME or ONLINE events a SUCCESS!
TIPS FOR BOOKING
Booking parties can be fun if you are excited about the products and activities you'll be sharing. When you're getting started, it's often best to set up a day or a block of time that you can have a little "Booking Blitz".
As you begin to make calls to find hosts here are some tips that can help you with great results:
#1 Create your list ahead of time. Start with people who've expressed interest in the past, people whose parties you've attended, and customers who love the product, and make sure their contact information is handy.
#2 Create an "Open Date" calendar. Take a look at your calendar over the next 3 months and decide which dates and times you are "Open" for events. If someone says they'd like to host next month, give them 2 or 3 options you have available.
#3 Be excited and stay positive. STAND UP while you're making the call and let your potential host hear the enthusiasm in your voice and the excitement you have for sharing amazing product with their friends and family.
#4 Have a simple script. What are the first sentences you will say? What are the points you want to bring up in the call? Which product line are you focusing your party on? What is the next step after the date is booked? Know all of that before you call and have it written on a notepad in front of you.
$5 DO IT. Start with people you think are most likely to say YES. Keep it simple. Don't over analyze things, or over prepare.
The hardest part is the FIRST STEP. Take things one step at a time and you'll find the success you're looking for.
Working with a host can be a really fun part of our business. An enthusiastic and motivated host can be the difference between a successful event and one that doesn't achieve the results you'd hoped for. Coaching a host on their event can help them achieve the sales goals that they set, and can help you grow your business as well.
WHAT DO I DO OR SAY AT MY EVENT?
More training is coming soon here, but take a look at some of the basic training for various product brands.
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.

Many of our team members are having great success with weight loss and making healthy lifestyle changes. Their stories are amazing, and hearing the positive ways our lives can be impacted by taking care of our health is helpful and motivating for those of us on our own roads to better health.
Take a few minutes to hear their stories and tips they share.
Thank-you Nanci Bottcher, Candy McCune, Patty Spielman, and Lori Brandenburg for sharing your journey, knowledge, and experiences with us.
One thing I love about Youngevity, is that each month they bring us great new products to enjoy and to share with others. This month was no exception.
Helen Watt pulled together some of her favorites for our training meeting, and I thought it would be fun to put them here for all of you to see. Thanks Helen!
I hope you're all as excited to try the new products as I am. You can search for and see details about these in the Youngevity Store.
I've learned a lot from Dr. Peter Glidden, a licensed Naturopathic physician, over the past 2 years I've been with Youngevity. He isn't a Youngevity Distributor or shareholder, but he has had better results with Youngevity product in his protocols over the past 26 years, than with other product.
He shares a lot of information about taking care of our health naturally, and how our bodies have what they need to heal themselves if we give them the right nutrients. Generally, he recommends avoiding the 10 bad foods, and getting started with the Healthy Body Pack 2.0 liquid.
DR GLIDDEN did a special training for our team, and I think it provides a great overview about HOW TO HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE WITH YOUNGEVITY HEALTH. Here is the recording.
As a general overview, here are some really brief notes I took:
As distributors, we do not diagnose or treat disease, and when someone ask us if we have something for Asthma, for example, we do not say yes. We need to say "We can't' treat asthma. However if you're looking for something to "Support and promote healthy lung function..." Or you can say, "I know a Dr. that says you don't have to suffer from that...". From there, you can go to Dr. Glidden's website and type in the search bar the term you are looking for, and pull up his recorded presentations an hundreds of health concerns people have asked him about.
Dr. Glidden has a program, where you pay a monthly fee, called his INSIDER program. With that you have access to years of recorded trainings, in addition to specific protocols he recommends for a variety of concerns. You can find a link, listen to the information, and share the link in an email with someone else. This is really helpful for those of us who are interested in learning more about taking charge of our own health.
He also has a series of articles and webinars that I find informative and helpful as well. He is passionate about his mission to educate people on wholistic, naturopathic medicine, speaks directly and doesn't hide his views about some of the challenges found with traditional medicine.
Whether you are looking for information for yourself or a friend or family member, I think you'll be happy you listened to what Dr. Glidden shares.
Lori Brandenburg, from Team Fusion, was the latest Healthy Body Challenge 2015 winner. It was neat to see her on stage, looking absolutely fantastic, celebrating her amazing journey with all of us.
Lori, and her sponsor Patty Spielman, who also has an amazing weight loss story, has shared some tips with us to help with our own journey to better health. I love how practical these tips are. Thank-you for sharing!
From Lori and Patty:
A simple way to begin your journey into the world of Essential Oils, and to build up your inventory of this amazing product line, is to join Youngevity's Aroma Share club.
For $50 a month, you receive 2-4 oils, fun recipes to create using the oils, and training as well. All you need to do is add Aroma Share to your autoship, and you'll get the monthly oils, plus free shipping on your order.
I love the training, oils, and the inexpensive way, our oils specialists, Leiann King and Brenda Wright have established for us to ease into Essential Oils. I also love that you can use the structure of the Aroma Share club and create a monthly event for distributors in your area, where you can get together, learn about these oils, and create, taste, and use the recipes right there. Simply fantastic!
CLICK HERE to check out the 2015 Aroma Share club oils.
I am so excited I can hardly stand it! Youngevity just released a new video for us to use, that talks about Youngevity and how the business model with the different product brands works. This is a FANTASTIC video for our team!!!! This shows our roots with Doctor Wallach and his passion for health education, and Youngevity's different brands that all work together for a healthy lifestyle. I LOVE IT.
Many of you have been asking about what resources are available for you to show at EVENTS. THIS IS IT. Right here. Whatever focus your event might have, this is the video to show, that ties it all together.
Thank-you to everyone at the home office for listening to your leaders, and for making such a great resource for us to use with our event focused, product loving, passionate team!
A lot of people ask what they should order before they begin a weight loss program. Keep these handy. These are the flyers from December that show the 3 basic kits you'll want to order to get you through the month. If you didn't start January 1st, don't worry. Start when you can! And remember, as Coach Jeevers says, do the BEST you can WHEN you can.
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.
