Now more than ever is the best time to be a Reliv Distributor. Firstly, let me say I’ve been a Distributor since 1989. I’ve created a lifestyle that I could have only dreamed of
having. I feel the best that I’ve ever felt and I’ve helped thousands of people to do the
same. I’ve travelled the world and made hundreds of friends. I’ve grown as a person
and I had complete freedom while doing all of it. Sound like fun? Well, now is the
best time for you to do it too.
According to the Global Wellness Institute, wellness is the new trillion dollar industry. That’s trillion with a “t.” And that’s perfect for us because we’re dedicated to improving the wellbeing of people around the world. In fact, that’s our mission: Nourish Our World. As for the future of wellness? It couldn’t be brighter.
The Direct Selling Association stats from 2016 show that the fastest-growing segment of the industry is wellness and that growth is projected to continue. In 2016, that number climbed to 12.41 billion dollars! But why is that? Courtney Roush of Direct Selling News had this to say:
“Among all direct selling companies, the wellness sector has been capturing the highest volume of product sales. This growth is driven largely by the obesity epidemic, with nearly one-third of the world’s population obese or overweight.”
One might be tempted to say that as people get bigger, the need for Reliv gets bigger. Or as I’ve said for the past 28 years: We need to move more, eat smarter and take our Reliv every day.
The reason for all of this is simple: people of all ages want to live longer and healthier lives, and more and more folks are turning to direct selling companies for help. Furthermore, new mobile tools, technology and social media are making it easier for networkers to connect with customers and potential business partners. You have more options today than ever before to reach out to your prospects! This makes it so much easier to grow your business.
Simply put, hundreds of people are joining Reliv each month in order to make positive changes to their lifestyle, and to take advantage of the tools that are making it easier for entrepreneurs to connect, train, and retain people like never before. You might say it’s the perfect Reliv storm.
Indeed, much has changed since I started my business years ago, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Today, Distributors have their own websites and social media pages and they use emails, text messaging, smartphones, laptops, and tablets for ordering products, showing videos, listening to podcasts, and reaching out to people on their many networks. It’s plain to see how the tools of the modern world play right into the hands of those who want to build a worldwide distribution network. And at Reliv we won’t only embrace the changes sweeping through our industry, but we will lead the way.
Consider joining us as we lead the world towards better wellbeing!
