What Makes You Smile?

As a Forever Business Owner, having a positive outlook on life is a key characteristic of how I do my business.  This business is all about building relationships with people, and that’s all about sharing a smile with people and making a positive difference to the lives of others.  That’s why Smiles are a really important part of the culture with us in Forever.

If you have been to a business presentation then you will have probably heard the phrase “if it doesn’t make you Smile, change it.”  We look at this statement as a core philosophy for how every customer and Forever Business Owner should look at life.  Whether you are not happy with your current fitness or unhappy with your career, there is something that we can offer to help you find a reason to Smile.

If you would like to find out more on how Forever can make you Smile, then please get in touch via the Contact Me link at the top of this page.  You can request a short video about the business with stories from real people about how Forever Living has made them smile.

MIT and the Implications on Our Products

Due to a change in EU regulations, all companies with leave on products containing Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) are required to reformulate to eliminate this ingredient.

While we will be facing some stock outages of some of these products temporarily, our teams were able to move quickly with short notice to reformulate these products and minimize the inconvenience to our customers.

Stock Availability

Products such as Firming Day Lotion and Recovering Night Creme from the Fleur range and Gentleman’s Pride should be from later in February, The Redydrating Toner and the Fleur Kit from March and the Heat Lotion (my personal favourite) from April/May. The dates for  Aloe Sunscreen and the Sonya Aloe Deep Moisturizing Cream are still to be confirmed. These dates may change, so keep an eye out for updates.

Discontinued Products

Some products are to be discontinued to make room for new innovation.  Over almost 40 years, Forever has built a wide assortment of products. With so many exciting new developments and reformulations coming your way, Forever has decided to say goodbye to some of our classics in order to make room for new innovations later this year or next year. We will sell these products until stock lasts, but please note that products containing MIT will be unavailable with immediate effect.

These are the Aroma Spa Collection, the Relaxation Massage Lotion, Aloe Sunscreen Spray and the Aloe Body Toning Kit.

Here is my entry, filmed with the help and support of my Zumba instructor Jen in Roade, Northants, and my brother Nick who is a fantastic photographer, and some of my exercise class.

I had a hip replacement in February 2007, and it took me a long while and lots of hard work to get back to moving and to full fitness. In 2012 I discovered Forever Living Products, and not long after I found a local Zumba class which is so much fun and uplifting to participate in, and between the two of them I keep fit and healthy.

Get in touch with me via the Contact Me button to find out more about Forever Living Products, and contact Jen via Facebook for details of the Zumba classes help in Roade and Towcester Northamptonshire.

This competition will run for the whole of January so get moving and remember #ForeverBringIt!

Clean 9 – Free Foods Updated

The Clean 9 (C9) from Forever Living is an expertly devised 9 day cleansing plan designed to kick start a healthier way of living.  The programme cleanses your body and helps to adjust your mindset, it is a perfect starting point for transforming your diet and fitness habits. You can read more information about the relaunched Forever F.I.T. programme, which the C9 forms the first part of , in my previous post New Forever F.I.T.

The C9 has benefited from the addition of Free Foods in the plan since it’s previous relaunch in 2014, and now the programme has been improved again with more guidance on Free Foods, what to eat and how often you can have them whilst sticking to the plan.

Fruits Veggies and Free Foods

Free foods are foods which are low in calories and provide vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and fibre.  The newly designed booklet which comes with the C9 pack splits your free foods between one serving foods, two serving foods, and unlimited foods which are so low in calories that the serving size is not specified.

free-foods-once-a-day-list

free-foods-twice-a-day-list

free-foods-unlimited

By reaching for these free foods if you feel peckish on the C9, or even if you just want that feeling of eating something on days 1 and 2 of the programme, you are more likely to succeed and stay on the wagon for the full 9 days.

Sticking to the Plan

The secret to a successful C9 is first proper preparation, which is covered in my post 5 ways to prepare for the Clean 9, keeping focused on your goals and reasons for following the programme,  and don’t beat yourself up if you eat food or have a slip up whilst on the C9, just pick yourself up, refocus, and follow the rest of the plan as best you can.  Proper preparation is the key.  If you have a supply of free foods prepared and ready to dip into during your lowest moments you are less likely to

Need Help ?

If you have any questions about the C9 then you should ask for help from the Forever Living Distributor who supplied the products to you. If you have not yet purchased your box then you can buy online from my online shop, accessed by the Shop Now button on my weight management website.  If you wish to be coached whilst following the program then please include your details with your order and I can get in touch to support you, or use the Contact Me  on this website.  I also have hints and tips, 600 calorie recipe ideas and videos about the programme available if you search the weight management category on this website.  Also please note the Be Mindful of your Health section on my previous post for health considerations before purchasing the box and starting the plan,

New Forever F.I.T.

As the sports and weight management industry continues to grow and innovate, Forever is constantly adapting and expanding its range of products to meet increasing demands and to find new and innovative solutions to that age old problem of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

To find out about the new Clean 9 (C9)  and F.I.T. Fifteen (F15)  weight management programmes , visit my Weight Management Website which has been updated with information about the relaunched products.  I’ve also included here a summary of some of the changes.

C9 Changes

The C9 program still contains the same great products, but the booklet has been updated with new exercise ideas and shake recipes, as well as expanding on the advice about Free Foods (see Clean 9 Free Foods Updated).  I know in the past some customers found it confusing about which free foods you should eat and worried about the effect they would have on the cleanse, but this great new booklet advises how often you can have the fruits and veggies suggested, including some one serving foods, some for two servings, and others which can be eaten freely.c9

You can download the booklet from the website linked to above, or click here to access the information directly.  You also get a copy of the booklet in your C9 pack when you order.

I am also commonly asked about ideas for the 500-600 calorie meals you eat on days 3 to 9 of the programme, and the booklet has some delicious recipe ideas to keep you on plan.

The New F15

F15 is a 15 day programme which ideally should be followed after the C9, but can be followed at any time.  The programme includes all the Forever Supplements you need together with recipe ideas, dietary advice and an exercise programme to follow.  The pack comes in Beginner which is designed to hep you learn how to build healthy habits , and then the intermediate program follows on when you are ready to step up your routine.  Once you have worked through the beginner and intermediate programmes you can then move to the F15 Advanced pack.f15

Each of the 3 packs contains two possible fifteen-day regimes to follow so you can choose the one which best suits your lifestyle.  In the Beginner pack the meal schedules and exercise plans differ slightly so look carefully when you are choosing which to follow.  With Intermediate and Advanced the supplement and meal schedules in the two regimes are identical, but the exercise plans vary so you can choose the most suitable regime for your lifestyle and the results you want to achieve.

You can download all the booklets from the F15 page on my weight management website, and if you purchase the packs you will get your own booklet to work through and fill in to help you on your journey to fitness.  You can also access videos of workouts you can follow on the program at http://foreverfit15.com.

Where to Buy C9 and F15

You can purchase the C9 and F15 packs through the Shop Now button on  my fitness website or get in touch via the contact me section on this website.

Should you wish to become a distributor of these fantastic products yourself,  it is possible to join Forever Living by purchasing one of these packs.

Be Mindful of your Health

Please note that the F.I.T. programme (C9 and F15) should not be taken by anyone who has diabetes, kidney disease, epilepsy, heart disease or dementia.

It should not be followed during pregnancy or when breastfeeding, and it is not suitable for children. If you have any medical condition or are taking medication, please consult your doctor before starting the programme.

This programme may not be suitable if you are obese or underweight. Check your BMI and consult your doctor before changing your diet and exercise regime.

Where to meet new people in Network Marketing

Following on from my previous post about building your Who Do You Know List in network marketing, many people are put off starting a new business as they feel they don’t know enough people who could become customers or team members.  After you have approached everyone in your immediate circle of friends and family then where do you go from there?

What you need to remember is there are literally thousands of people our there who have never heard of network marketing at all, let alone your particular business, and what you need to work on is strategies to open a conversation with these people in order to make a connection with them.

Where to Meet People

It is no good joining a network marketing business if you want to stay in all the time and be by yourself, burying your head in a good book or playing online games.  You need to get out and be social.  Is there a hobby you fancy having a go at that you have never tried?  Could you volunteer locally ? Are there social organisations locally you have never visited?  All these are excellent ways to get our and meet people.

You also will come across people in your daily life who you just pass the time of day with.  Your bus driver who always looks miserable, the checkout operator at your local supermarket, the server when you go out for a meal or receptionists and staff at your hairdresser, doctor or dentist.

network-1020332_1280

You can meet people all around you.

How to open a conversation

It doesn’t need to be a hard sell once you have gone out and found more people to meet . I am not suggesting you go along to a new group or class and immediately try plugging products and business opportunities to the people there, as you will soon get people’s backs up and become very unpopular.  To be successful in network marketing first you need to make connections and just get to know people with no mention of your home based business at all.

Sometimes a simple complement to someone you see in your day to day life can open a conversation and create a link with them which can naturally lead to more.  In the health and wellness industries, like with my business in Forever Living, a simple “How Are You?” then listening to the reply carefully can open doors for you to talk about your products.  The secret is always to be open and ask questions and listen to the answers before rushing to tell people all about yourself.  If you are a product of your products the rest will come in time.

talk and listen figures

Listen first, talk later!

With those you pass in day to day life you need to be a bit more forward as you may not meet that person again.  Have some business cards or similar available with your details on to pass to people with a simple comment such as “you’ve given me really great service today and you are just the sort of person I’m looking for to join my business, can I take your details and give you a call about it at a more convenient time?”. Take their number or email address if they will give it to you and pass them a card with your details.  You never know if this might be just the right time for the person you are talking to.

Where will this get you?

Don’t even think about the promotion and the money you want to make from your business, just think about meeting people, talking to people, and giving your customers and anyone interested really good service and the rest will come with time.

Is the Forever Living marketplace saturated?

If you are a Facebook addict, or you do a lot of small business networking, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Forever Living market is saturated.  You might know several people who have approached you about the products or the business opportunity at various times in your life.

One thing which puts people off joining is they think the market is saturated and there is no room for them to join the party.

But with Forever Living we sell consumable products which people will return to buy again and again.  Many products are used daily, such as the drinking gels, and if you join the business and look after your customers they will keep coming back for more as the products are so fantastic.  There is also a huge untapped marketplace for our products in the health, weight management and beauty sectors.

Take a look at your local High Street

How many shops sell bottled water?

How many hair salons are there selling the same hair care products?

How many chemists are there all selling the same high street brands of make up and a myriad of other products?

And all these products are available online too, so you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your house to buy them, and yet there are enough customers to keep all these sales channels open.

And look at how many gyms and exercise classes there are springing up all the time as people are spending more and more leisure time and money working on their own fitness and well being.

The things is there is a HUGE market for our products, and there are not enough active distributors to fill this need.  For example in Wales there are less than 400 active distributors and a population of 3.1 million (est). That’s one hell of a gap in the market which you could help fill.

So if you think there is no one to sell to then look again.  There are literally thousands of people living their lives day to day that have never met a Forever Living distributor or have never heard of our products.  They are your untapped market, so join us now and help fill the void.
