Start Your Journey Pack

In the past when you joined Forever Living we would fondly talk about the BOB.  Not just because Bob Parker is country manager here in the UK, but also because the box you bought to get started on your Forever Living journey was called the Business Owner Box.

But we have a new Start Your Journey Pack launched in February 2018 which replaces the BOB.  The new pack is available both through the online application form (Sponsor ID 440 100 686 316- Alison Mead) and also through our paper-based application form, which you can request using the Contact Me option above.

What is in the Box? Start Your Journey Pack

The actual contents can vary slightly depending on current stock availability in the UK – but generally, the pack will include:

Why Buy the Box?

The box has a fantastic selection of some of the most popular products from Forever Living, but also has all the literature you need to start your new business, as well as a training brochure to go through with your sponsor.

You can’t expect to run a business unless you are familiar with the products, and it is hard to sell products you have never used.  The box is designed so you can open it up and start using them as soon as they arrive, and share them with others in ways you will learn in your initial training with your sponsor.

You will also get a discount of 35% and a step Forever’s Marketing Plan ladder to Assistant Supervisor with your purchase.  The new box is £199.75 and is also worth 1.177 case credits.  Chat to your sponsor if you don’t know what this means.

If you are thinking of joining Forever Living and you want to find out more, the best way is to just get in touch and we can have a chat either online or on the phone.  Remember, you can’t change your life if you don’t change your thinking, so give it a go, what have you got to lose?

Joining Forever Living in India

Forever Living is a truly international business, and once you join in your home country you can then build a retail business or a team in any of the over 150 countries where Forever have been given the approval to operate.  This means that if you have friends or family in another country, you can introduce them to your new business and support them in building their own business in their home country.

Every company has slightly different rules in how they operate, so in this post I’ll tell you about joining Forever in India.  There are particular India specific rules and regulations which are different to most other countries which you need to be aware of.

Signing up as a Forever Living Distributor in India

There are 2 options available.  If you are joining with a distributor who is based in India or visiting, then you can fill out a Business Owner Application Form at any one of the many Forever Living offices in India.  This form needs to be signed by both the recruiting business owner and the new applicant.  The applicant also needs to have a Self-attested Proof and a copy of the PAN card and to place a minimum order of INR 1000/- (including taxes) to become a new active business owner.

The 2nd option which I use as a sponsor who cannot personally visit an Indian office is to direct the applicant to www.foreverliving.com and click on Join at the top right-hand side of the page. You must have the 12 digit sponsor ID ready at this point for the form.  If you want me, Alison Mead, to be your sponsor then you can use the ID 440100686316.  This form can then be printed and signed just by the application (the sponsor does not need to sign) and sent to your local office with the same support information listed above (the Self-attested Proof and a copy of the PAN card).   In this case, the initial order is not required when you send in your application, but it needs to be made before you become an active distributor.

Make sure if you are joining in India using either method you fully read all the terms and conditions on the joining forms before signing up.India Joining form

Sponsoring in India

There are strict foreign exchange rules applicable in India.  Bonuses generated in India can only be paid into Indian bank accounts, and you need to adhere to Reserved Bank of India (RBI) rules to remit monies abroad.  In effect, this means if you are based outside of India and build a team in India you cannot have any bonuses paid to you in another country without registering as a company in India first.  But you can still benefit from the case credits your team in India earn for your promotions within the business.

If you plan to build a large team in India then the head office there will send you full information on how to best follow the process to benefit from your bonuses generated in the country.

Need more Information?

If you want to learn more about being a Forever Living Distributor in India and how the business works, then take a look at this New Distributor Pricing Pamphlet for details. You can request information about where the local offices are in the country from the India head office, Forever Plaza, 74 Hill Road, Bandra West, Mumbai – 400 050 or email the head office at flpindia@flpindia.net where the staff are incredibly helpful and supportive.

If you are looking for a sponsor then please Contact Me and I can put you in touch with my team in India or answer any questions you may have.

Why do YOU want to join Forever Living?

People have many reasons for joining Forever Living products.  Some see the income opportunities and want to build a big business, others want a little extra each month and just want to do a bit of retail, some just want an occupation or a business they can call their own as they are stuck at home and are lonely, and others just want to get the products for themselves at a discount.

bg-getting-started-2

What are your goals?

And do you know what?  Whatever your reason is. That’s ok!   The majority of revenue earned by Forever Living products is from those business owners who just place a small order every now and then, as it all adds up and makes Forever Living a successful business.

Now I joined Forever Living in June 2012 mainly because I had tried the products and benefited from them, and I am VERY careful with my money.  I wanted to get the products at a discount, and my good friend Frances had just joined the business, so I bought my business owner box and joined Frances’ team, but planned to just be buying products for myself. I was definitely not interested in building a Forever Living business when I first joined.

However I’m a chatterbox, I love to talk, and I’ll talk to anybody, those who have met me will have noticed, and I also like to share with others too.  Whether that’s a book I have enjoyed reading, a film that has captured my imagination, a networking meeting I love or a product I’ve used.  I just like to share, so I actually found that without really wanting to be a ‘sales person’ I was building up a retail business which brought in extra money each month and also covered the cost of the products I wanted for myself and my family.  It was a win-win situation, instead of my products being cheaper, they are actually in effect free!

I have also actually enjoyed building a team too, and coaching and helping others who have joined Forever Living to build their own business. Something I never expected to take to.  The only thing I do find frustrating is when people won’t be honest with you about why they want to join the business.  I know everyone is different and what has worked for me might not necessarily work for you too, so tell me what YOU want to get from Forever Living, not what you think I want you to say.

So if you are looking to join Forever Living just to get the products a bit cheaper, then just let me know, and I can help you with that, but I won’t try and coach and mentor you if you don’t want to build a business yourself.  Just tell me honestly what your reason for joining Forever is and I’ll leave you alone if that is what you want.  Forever Living business owners have sometimes come over as pushy and unable to take no for an answer, but with better company training I’m finding this to be less and less the case with us now.

Of course if like me you join for that reason but then change your mind, that’s ok too.  We have so many fabulous resources and pieces of training available that when you change your mind we are ready to help you build that bigger business.  Just tell us again that you are ready to make a change.

Forever Living in Scotland

Forever Living have announced a great incentive for Forever Living business owners in Scotland to help them to grow their teams.  These incentives are only applicable if you live in area 180 yourself.  (That’s Forever speak for Scotland!)

But as Forever is such a great international business, even though I don’t live in that area myself, I have two team members who do.  Robert in Glasgow and Fiona in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire both live in the right area, so even though I can’t win the prizes myself I can help and support them to go for the incentive.  The wonderful thing about Forever is you grow your business by helping others.  I don’t think there is anyone I know in this business who has been successful without being helpful and interested in supporting others.

What is the Incentive ?

So for Fiona and Robert, and anyone else in Scotland who works with Forever – and fits the terms shown in the link below*- the incentives involve moving up through the Forever marketing plan and gaining a promotion by building your business, with rewards including a free training day and an evening party, a drinks reception and at the top level an overnight stay too.

The prize differs depending on which levels you are promoted from and to – all you need to do is concentrate on building your business.  Full details can be found on the page linked below *.

So not only will your business grow if you aim for these incentives, which means your bonuses will get bigger, but you will also get to attend a great company training for free which can help you grow your business even more.  It’s a win win situation.

Interested in Joining Forever Living ?

If you are interested in joining Forever Living and you live in Scotland then please get in touch.  I can either put you in touch with my team members in the area, or I can mentor and sponsor you in the same way I have helped Robert and Fiona get started.  We have online support groups, video training and use Skype to mentor team members who want to be successful in Forever.

We also have business information evenings held in Glasgow, Ayrshire and Edinburgh.  If you wish to find out about exactly when and where these meetings are held, which are open to anyone interested in joining us, then just let me know, and I can arrange for you to be met and welcomed at your most local meeting.

If you have already looked into joining Forever Living and would like me to be your sponsor, you can Join Now online by browsing to https://application.foreverknowledge.info/ then you need my details as your sponsor on the form which are  Alison Mead, ID no 440100686316.  Take a look at my previous post about why choosing your sponsor and the team you join is so important in this business.

Who Can Join Forever Living ?

There is no typical person who joins Forever. Robert owns and runs two cafes with his wife and wanted another separate source of income, and Fiona is retired and loves the products and also wanted another independent income to support her in her retirement. I have people of all ages in my team, men and women, young and old, single and attached.  The one thing I have learned in this business is never judge anyone, there are so many reasons why people want to join Forever Living, and I am just here to offer help and guidance and to make your experience with Forever as simple and smooth as possible.  The business you grow will be YOUR business, but you won’t be on your own in growing it.

Joining Forever Living in South Africa

Forever Living products are growing in popularity in South Africa.  The company held their annual global rally in Johannesburg in 2016, where over 10,000 Forever Living Business Owners gathered from around the world to share experiences, learn from each other, and receive their Chairman’s Bonus cheques from our CEO Rex Maughan.  If you are in the UK then take a look at my previous blog post “how much does it cost to join Forever Living”.south-africa-global-rally

Who Can Join Forever Living

Forever Living is a business which anyone can do.  Forever provides ordinary people with an opportunity to build an exceptional financially secure future. This is a chance to start a business with real potential, uncapped income, and proven results, while still being able to achieve that elusive work-life balance.

How to Join Forever Living in South Africa

To join you simply need to fill out an application form and make your first order for products.  You can use the South African application for in South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  Click on the link to download the distributor application form.

When you submit your application form you need to include a copy of your ID document and the top section of your bank statement as per the FICA requirements.

Your first order for products needs to be for at least 1 or 2 case credits (1cc or 2cc) which is our internal currency used in Forever Living to value the products, not a monetary value.  Download the price-list-for-new-distributors-2016 and see page 2 for the suggested combo pak lists and their case credit value.  The prices for the packs are given on page 4 of the order form.  After your initial order the minimum order quantity is reduced to US $ 100.00 before VAT at 14% (SA), the VAT rate can vary between countries.  In SA the minimum order is R950 before VAT.

Full instructions are in the how-to-join-south-africa document with bank details for paying in South Africa.  If you are in any of the other countries listed then you should contact operations@forever.co.za for the appropriate bank details.  The office locations in South Africa are also included in the document.

How do you earn money with Forever Living?

The first way you earn money with Forever Living is by retailing the products.  You buy the products at a discount which varies according to where you are on the Marketing Plan. This is something which seems quite complicated before you first join, but you soon get used to it with the help of your sponsor in the business.

Basically, if you choose to join placing an order for 1cc then you will earn a 15% discount on your products, which you will then earn when you sell to your customers at the standard customer prices, shown in the price-list-for-customers-2016.

If you first joined with the 2cc order you skip straight to the 2nd level on the marketing plan, assistant supervisor, which earns you a 30% discount on the products plus an additional Personal Discount of 5%.  You can move from 15% to 30% by placing 2cc of orders over 2 consecutive months as your business grows.

As your business grows further you will be able to work your way up our marketing plan first to Supervisor where you earn 8% Discount, then to Assistant Manager for 13% Discount, to Manager at 18% Discount.

Forever Living also reward you for introducing new people to the business, you can learn about this once you join.

Support and Training

Forever living as a company offers events and trainings you can attend all over South Africa and beyond.  Also, the person who introduces you to the business, or your sponsor, will be able to help and support you in how to find customers, in learning about the products, and how to find potential team members.  Choose your sponsor carefully as teams can vary widely in the sort of training they provide.  You will see on my blog here under the Business Building category the kind of help and advice I can help with if you choose to join my team.

Going Global with Forever Living

Once you have joined Forever Living as a Forever Business Owner in your home country, you then have the opportunity to develop your business in any one of the 145 + countries Forever Living operate in.  The world is your Oyster.

FLP International Directory - Copy

When you are approached by prospects in another country, your first step is to get your ID number registered in this new area.  So far I am registered in Ireland, South Africa, Nigeria, Cameroon, Spain and many more.  Just send a simple email to your head office requesting the change, in the uk you need to email distributorsupport@flpuk.net .  You need to quote your full ID number including the country code at the beginning, which for the UK is 440, so your ID number is 12 digits long.

They will email you once the change has been made to your account, and you then need to wait 24 hours for the change to take effect.  You will then be able to direct prospects interested in buying the products from you in the country to your online shop. My business first went international when a customer in Ireland bought a Clean 9 from me back in November 2013.

The next step if you want to sponsor abroad is to then email the head office in the country you are interested in.  Each country has their own head office.   I recommend buying the Forever Living Products International Directory from the literature section of the website, it’s in the Literature & Accessories/Magazines and Miscellaneous area and only costs £5 in the UK.  It lists the contact details of all the country managers and is a wonderful resource to show prospects too.  You can also look online at the http://www.foreverliving.com website and see all the world locations.

Is your country listed here?

Is your country listed here?

Each country has their own joining criteria, price lists and application forms, so you can get this information from the head office to forward on to your prospect.  Another tip is when you log into http://www.foreverliving.com look up to the top left had corner and you can set which country you want to view the website for.  This means you can see the shop prices and download useful price lists and files for yourself from the website too.

All of the head offices around the world I have been in touch with have been incredibly helpful, so what are you waiting for?  If you have an Aunty in Australia, Cousins in Cameroon, Nieces in Nigeria or Friends in France then get in touch and tell them about Forever, and your business can go international too.

If you are interested in looking into the Forever Living opportunity but don’t know anyone who can sponsor you, then get in touch and I will help get you started.
