Sorry I have not posted much here. I just noticed we have some new people. Welcome to ALL!! And please share your views, ideas, stories with us.
Healthy meal replacement weight-loss shake.
Tired of losing the weight-loss game?
Packed with more vitamins and minerals than grocery store brands, Attain Shakes help you get the weight-loss results you want simply by replacing a meal or two a day. A recent study found that drinking five to ten shakes a week allowed dieters to permanently live at a lower weight.
With Attain you also get the added benefits of soy. The FDA says that consuming 25 grams of soy protein a day can provide significant heart benefits. Soy protein isolate also helps maintain bone strength and normal cell function.
With only 2 grams of fat and 130 calories, Attain Shakes satisfy your hunger without adding inches to your waist. In addition, the smooth and delicious shake has enough vitamins and minerals to serve as a meal. That means while you're cutting calories, you won't be cutting nutrition.
Attain Shakes are preferred over the competition in taste tests. They taste so great you won't believe they're good for you.
Attain Shakes are an easy way to enjoy a healthy meal anytime, anywhere.
Packed with Nutrition
Attain Shakes are packed with more vitamins and minerals than any other brand—and they're more nutritious than the typical lunch. Each Attain Shake contains 8 grams of soy protein isolate—a full serving of soy protein, which is associated with better cardiovascular health.*
For Weight Loss
Combined with regular exercise, Attain is a nutritionally-balanced meal replacement that can help you lose weight. Try an Attain Shake or Meal Bar for breakfast and lunch, then eat a balanced dinner.**
Attain Shakes are available in several tasty flavors—try them all!
*25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of Attain supplies 8 grams of soy protein.
**Attain should not be used as a sole source of nutrition. Before starting any diet plan, consult your physician.
New Performance Formula Access Bar: Unleash your stored energy and burn more fat while you exercise.
Your body is full of potential energy. Just one pound of fat contains enough energy for you to run 38 miles or walk more than 55 miles - without stopping to eat anything! So, why is it that we feel completely exhausted after walking a few blocks or exercising for an hour? Blame it on your ancestors. In the past, obtaining food was often dangerous and required a lot of energy. The human body protected itself by limiting its fat-burning capability. It was great back then, but modern man doesn't have trouble getting food anymore. Today, we eat lots of fat that we can't burn off. It's no wonder more than 60% of North American adults are overweight.
Unlock Your Body's Fat-Burning Potential
During your workout, the main fuels your muscles burn are glucose (from the food you eat) and fat (fuel stored for future use). When your body burns these fuels, it creates adenosine, which enters your circulatory system, makes muscles tired, and slows down your workout. Adenosine also promotes the conversion of glucose into lactic acid. But Access Bars stop adenosine from taking effect. When you eat a great-tasting Access Bar 15 minutes before you exercise, your energy levels will soar and you'll burn fat - both vital for reaching your fitness goals.
Patented Formula Guarantees Results!
Before granting a patent for the Access Bar, the United States Patent and Trademark Office asked us to prove it was better than other energy bars. Through extensive testing, we showed the Access Bar was not just better, but dramatically helped enhance sustained aerobic activity! That's because Access Bars contain a natural food blend that blocks adenosine from being absorbed by receptor cells. The bars also inhibit the release of acetylcholine (the neurotransmitter that elicits muscle contraction) - allowing you to use more muscle fiber, which extends your workout! Because of its effectiveness, the Access Bar was granted a patent in both the U.S. and Canada.
Introducing a new flavor and a better formula!
We've added Double Fudge Brownie to our all-star lineup. Rich, gooey chocolate baked into a smooth, mouth-watering bar - you'll want to savor each bite! In fact, we've improved the flavor and texture of the other three Access Bar formulas as well. Take an Access Bar to baseball practice, to the gym, or on a bike ride. After eating one, you'll notice that you have more energy. No candy bar or sports drink can do that! With Access Bars, you get the best performance - guaranteed!
Emotional wellness...feel confident and hopeful as you relieve stress and anxiety.
Many times we may feel overwhelmed, tired out, unmotivated, and just unable to handle everything life throws our way. What we may not realize is that certain chemicals in the brain can affect our ability to cope with everyday challenges.
Independent research has found that certain chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) in the brain affect our mood and our ability to cope. One of the most important messengers is the brain's own mood-elevating and tranquilizing drug—serotonin.
Luminex's exclusive formulation of three natural ingredients works to maintain the health of the brain's communication system—including the production and maintenance of serotonin. Here's how it works:
1) Griffonia seed helps promote normal levels of mood-enhancing neurotransmitters, sustaining positive mood and emotional outlook.
2) St. John's wort takes over where griffonia seed leaves off, helping maintain normal levels of neurotransmitters.
3) B-12 and folic acid naturally support the activities of brain messengers, providing additional maintenance for neurotransmitters. A daily serving of Luminex contains 100% of both of these important vitamins.
Combined with a balanced diet and consistent exercise, Luminex can provide the body with the tools it needs to maintain our abilities to cope with the stresses of life. Try Luminex. You should see results within four weeks.
Natural support for menopause, replaces lost estrogen.
The menopausal transition is marked by a drastic loss in estrogen, or what is commonly referred to as the "female hormone." This hormone is not involved only in reproduction, but in at least 300 of the female body systems! With a unique formulation of soybean, black cohosh, and dong quai, EstrAval provides a women's body the tools it needs to sustain health and well-being through this natural stage. It mimics the action of natural estrogen, helping to reduce the occurrence of hot flashes and maintaining a feeling of balance and equilibrium. And it gives you the benefits of not just soy (concentrated with 40% isoflavones), but reputable black cohosh and dong quai. Working together, these extracts help you get back to being yourself. EstrAval: Because you have a lot of living to do. Note: Studies have continually shown that soy helps maintain the normal function of female body systems. A recent study showed that taking soy supplements significantly improved symptoms such as hot flashes. (Menopause, Volume 6, 1999.)
Stay well... when your defenses are under attack.
The world grows smaller every day. Airplanes, movie theaters, shopping malls—many of the places we visit on a regular basis are cozy harbors for germs.
Activate Immune Complex is an exclusive combination of extracts and vitamins that have all shown, in scientific studies, to help support the body's own defense mechanism: the immune system. And unlike many similar products, Activate is not simply one extract in a bottle. Made up of three natural extracts (echinacea, astragalus, and arabinogalactan) plus vitamins and minerals (vitamins C, E, and folic acid, with selenium and zinc), it is a complete formula designed to help the body defend itself.
In a world where our defenses are constantly being stressed, Activate Immune Complex can help support, rejuvenate, and refresh the immune system—so you can stay well, be active, and enjoy the important things in your life.
Note: When you feel your defenses need a boost, supercharge your immune system by taking one capsule three times daily. Use for no more than three weeks at a time.
Phytomega's patent-pending breakthrough formula is the only product to combine plant-based phytosterols with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids to naturally reduce LDL "bad" cholesterol and promote healthy triglyceride levels.
Works with PROVEXCV and FiberWise
Taken with PROVEXCV and FiberWise, Phytomega improves your whole cardiovascular system! While Phytomega reduces LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, PROVEXCV helps prevent the remaining LDL cholesterol in the blood from oxidizing and enables healthy platelet activity. Add FiberWise, which expels toxins, fats, and cholesterol from the body, and you have the perfect combination for complete cardiovascular health!
What makes Phytomega work
First, the phytosterols - (plant-derived molecules that mimic cholesterol) effectively block your body's absorption of cholesterol in the intestine. Because the phytosterols in Phytomega mimic cholesterol, your body absorbs less cholesterol and less enters your bloodstream. The unabsorbed cholesterol passes out of your body as waste. By lowering these cholesterol levels, Phytomega helps reduce your risk of heart disease.
Second, omega-3 fatty acids are a form of polyunsaturated fat, a "good" fat. They are essential for good health, but your body cannot make these fatty acids. In the 1970s, scientists made one of the first connections between omega-3 fatty acids and human health while studying the Inuit people of Greenland. The Inuit diet of whale, seal, and salmon is very high in fat, yet they suffer far less coronary heart disease than other populations. Researchers realized these foods are rich in omega-3 fatty acids - which give the Inuit natural cardiovascular protection and other health benefits. These fatty acids help maintain healthy triglyceride levels in your body. Research has shown that people with elevated triglyceride levels are at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease - specifically ischemic stroke* - as well as other risk factors, including diabetes and hypertension.
Current Mood: accomplished
The Mela meeting was sooo cool! I learn so much every time I go to one. I just hope they have more in Alaska. The last one was 6 years ago. I will just have to get my but in gear and tell more people about what a great company they are. I just need to get over this talking in front of people. I talked to a guy there that is willing to help me. Got His biz card. Well...off to bed...

I have now started adding all the info I have collected in the the memories
Provides cardiovascular protection.
In a perfect world we would avoid fatty foods, eat right all the time, and exercise on a daily basis. All of these things contribute to a healthy heart.
Unfortunately, we are faced with racing lifestyles, poor diets, undesirable genetics, and other elements that can affect the health of the heart. Today, you can do more to protect it with PROVEXCV. This scientifically advanced formula is the result of cutting-edge research conducted by university scientists. A combination of grape seed, grape skin, ginkgo biloba, bilberry, and a flavonoid called quercetin, PROVEXCV has shown, in human studies, to help maintain cardiovascular health in two ways:
By providing powerful antioxidant protection to the cardiovascular system.
By helping to maintain normal blood flow through the arteries. How? Certain flavonoids in PROVEXCV can help maintain healthy platelet aggregation, thus helping to maintain normal blood flow.
PROVEXCV also has an exclusive enzyme blend that not only helps your body absorb the critical nutrients, but actually increases the overall effectiveness of the product.
PROVEXCV: Isn't your heart worth a dollar a day?
Note: Melaleuca leads the industry in flavonoid research, and recent studies have shown the fragile nature of botanical extracts. For optimal effectiveness, store your PROVEXCV in the refrigerator after opening.
*Consult your physician before taking this product if you are pregnant, lactating, under a doctor's care, taking any medications, or before administering to children under the age of 1
Enhance your cells ability to function properly and support optimal health. Exclusive combination of proven antioxidants.
Science has found that inside each of us are unstable molecules known as free radicals. A result of our natural body metabolism and created when we are exposed to environmental pollutants, these menaces can wreak havoc on the most basic of body parts: the cell. Unchecked, the free radical can contribute to the aging process, affect the immune system, and even harm a cell's genetic structure.
In today's world of rising pollution, stress, and poor nutrition, Cell-Wise is a welcome relief in the fight to maintain good health. No other supplement carries the combination of vitamins C and natural E, beta carotene, selenium, and zinc, delivering powerful antioxidants to help fight free radicals and provide natural health protection at the cellular level. Immune function, bones and ligaments, eyes, liver, and kidneys all benefit from Cell-Wise's exclusive formula, which helps regenerate your body’s own natural free radical fighters.
Superior nutrient forms of calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium—with patented Fructose Compounding.
Mela-Cal provides the calcium needed to help reduce the risk of osteoporosis* and maintain strong, healthy bones. Mela-Cal also contains vitamin C and D, which are necessary to make calcium more available for bone mineralization. Plus, Mela-Cal is processed with the patented Fructose Compounding system, designed to help body cells better absorb important minerals.
Minerals are typically difficult for the body to absorb. Fructose Compounding binds each mineral with a fructose molecule. The cells in the body are familiar with fructose, and are more likely to absorb it, taking the mineral in with it. The result? Your body is more likely to actually experience the benefits of crucial minerals.
Mela-Cal> is available in two formulas to suit your needs: Original and Prenatal.
*Regular exercise and a healthy diet with enough calcium helps teens and young adult white and Asian women maintain good bone health and may reduce their high risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Multi-vitamin supplement with our exclusive, patented Fructose Compounding process.
Studies show that you can eat a well-balanced diet... and still not get all the basic nutrients your body needs every day. Unfortunately, in today's world, food is often grown in mineral-depleted soils and then harvested before it's ripe—which compromises the potency of the nutrients.
Mel-Vita gives you the most bio-available nutrient forms in a research-recommended therapeutic dose—the dosage that is necessary and most effective for your body. The result? Better overall vitality, energy, and physical wellness!

Toxic Brew video
Healthy Home Quiz
Melaleuca catalogues (don't leave my house!)
2 ply check off list
pamphlets and brochures from RM Barry
various 'non-Mela' magazines opened to articles on toxins
computer turned on with Mela website ready to peruse
various printed reading material like 'Total Shopping Replacement Plan'
This is NOT magic, but it is hard work. (Oh, keep in mind, the Newby’s are Marketing Execs of the year, they have THE fastest growing business, with over 7500 in their org., and in Dec brought in over $220K!)
Bruce was VERY cynical when Kirsten told him about the mom team and Melaleuca. Both kids were in school now and he wanted her to go back to work. She did not like that idea at all. Bruce was the typical skeptical husband and did not want her to join!
They have duplicated their system thru in homes, they DO NOT buy or use leads, and do not work online any longer.
They have 52 personals with 26 of them being directors. INCREDIBLE ratio!
12 steps to a successful inhome
1. Invite as many as possible. Invite 25 -30 in order to get 5-10 to show.
2. ALWAYS confirm the day before or day of.
3. When inviting, don’t tell them too much. Tell them it’s visual and about Wellness. Say if it’s not for you, fine, but come and see for yourself. Should be 2-3 minutes max.
4. Host must have a value or career pack. YOUR guests trust you, (the host) not the presenter.
5. Have products on display. Save your empties for this.
6. Credibility. MAKE SURE our products are in the kitchen at the sink, and even under sink, in the bathroom, in the laundry room. Bruce has had a guy ask him to show him the products a round his house to prove that they used them!
7. Enrollment forms & catalogs must be there. Again, hosts job, not presenters.
8. Paper, pens and clipboards for all. Erasers, white out.
9. LIGHT refreshments. DO NOT overdo it. Must be able to duplicate.
10. You are offering them Healthier, SAFER products. Ask them to become a customer and open a trial account. The HOST should do this.
11. Make sure host is in the room the entire time. Be near the presenter.
12. Goal is to get the guests to sign up while there. NOT presenter’s job. They are your guests.
At the end of the day, it’s all about presenting Melaleuca. Who did you talk to today about Melaleuca?
They do 20 inhomes per month between both of them.
Tools for success:
1. Have a heart
2. Have a strong why. Money can not be your ONLY reason. Kirsten tells people to get out if that is their only reason! The Newby’s spend between 30-40 hours/week, between both of them on biz. WOW! They always had too much month left at the end of the money.
3. Coachable Be positive, be yourself, be honest
A. Attitude is everything. Be confident & enthusiastic
B. Belief in:
If you are a director, and you’re ordering exactly 75 pp per month, it does not cut it. Use all the products. If you don’t use vitamins, start now. 75pp per month is not all Melaleuca carries, and you need to use everything they make in order to move ahead.
Do research, know the company. Read about Frank. Bruce thought Frank was hustling everyone! He looked for something wrong here! HA! Says Melaleuca has a compensation plan like no other company ever, Frank must be NUTS to pay me like this!
People are watching you. Don’t end friendships over Melaleuca. People come around. (Bruce has stories about family and friends that STILL won’t join! And, yes, they know how much he makes! They make fun of him!)
4. Other people
Believe everyone CAN do it, & EXPECT them to do it, but DO NOT Count on them to do it. Do not BLAME anyone, ever. If so and so would just enroll one more so she’d have 8, then I could…….the answer then is, enroll another.
1. determine what you want
2. decide what you are willing to give up in order to achieve it. (Hmmm, does this sound familiar to anyone on my team???)
Bruce gave up Golf. He saw how committed Kirsten was, and agreed to help. She told the kids, ok, now mommy will be out a few nights during the week now on. He said that was tough, but they dealt with it. She asked him what $$ would it take to get him to quit his job. He gave a number, and said when she earned that 3 consecutive months, he’d walk. She did, and he did it.
All male spouses: If you have a wife who is talking about MAKING money instead of SPENDING it……….!! You better check your ego at the door and listen!
3. Associate with people who are where you want to be.
4. Plan your work, and work your plan.
Passion will defeat talent every time. His mom is a Sr III and is 68 yr old. Talk about the products and use the products.
1. consistency Failure is NOT an option
2. duplication- it is our business. A business of duplication. Find a method, use it, and stick to it. (Hmmm, is it me, or does that sound like Donna Stewart?) Teach them to be teachers. Teach a sense of urgency. We didn’t just want it, we had to have it! Even if your new person is a category 3, teach them the importance of t=getting to director in pacesetter time. It will build a solid ground for them to work from. They will continue enrolling 1-3 people ever month, and then may even decide to be a 4 or 5.
G. Goals Don’t forget to help yourself. It is proven with in our business that if you have:
20 personal directors, EACH with 20 personal directors, you will earn approx. $30-40K/month
Ask yourself, if everyone In my biz were just like me, what kind of business would that be?
A director is someone who enrolls 8. A leader is someone who continues enrolling & helps others do the same.
Have new people get to 20 in first 3 months. Doing that, they get to D3/4 within 6 months or so. Get rid of the preconceived notions of previous businesses. Get to 20. 8 is NOT the magic number for a director. 20 is. They must purchase a value or career pack.
They must use all the products.
90% of people do 90% of what they are going to do in the first 90 days.
Be coachable, plug into training. Be there, show up! They are watching you!
Lead by example (new 7th critical activity)
Know that ALL activity is duplicated-GOOD & BAD
Stay in touch with your team & leaders daily.
Stay in touch with your mentor & support line
Attend all meetings! Make the sacrifice to be there. If you do it, your team will see it is important to you, and they will follow.
Consistently develop new leaders.
Do not worry that your team (and children) is not listening to you……worry that they are WTACHING you.
5 key steps to starting in homes;
1. order CP/VP and convert home ASAP.
2. Schedule 3 inhomes within 30-45 days of enrollment
3. send invites-over invite. Confirm attendance
do inhome by following the 12 steps.
You can have everything you want if you help enough other people to get what they want.
AT the inhome:
They rather assume everyone will join. Their approach to closing the guests is that they will join. They get first orders placed at in home. If they say they want to bring forms/catalog home to review, Brice says no, he’ll hold onto them and will get back to the next week. Don’t let people go off with your catalog if they did not enroll.
How to reduce attrition:
Help them PLACE ODERS for at least 3 months. It is worth the time it takes because for that time/effort on your part you now have a good customer for life.
When following up, ask if they would be interested in business, or receiving a small check./ Or if they are a customer getting a small check, ask if they would like to double or triple it.
Everyone’s situation changes every 6 months to a year. You never know unless you ask.
You should call all of your customers now and then. When is the last time you talked to the customer you enrolled a year ago?
When they do an inhome for someone, they bring a guest, and others on their team come and bring guests. So, they are presenting for several of their biz builders at the same time. Then those people go off and do inhomes for THEIR people. DUPLICATION.
How to invite to an inhome:
Call your old friend, local acquaintance, or whoever:
“I set up accounts for a wellness company. They manufacture awesome products at reasonable prices. I’m having a demonstration/presentation on Thursday at 7pm. Can you make it? OR When can you come out and see it? (They have standing presentations, so he can then easily say, great, I’ll be doing one next Thursday, or whatever.)
If the potential guest asks if it is a biz opp attached, answer YES, but that is not the focus here. The focus is wellness and prevention, while getting a better, safer, reasonably priced product.
If they ask for more info now, tell them it’s a visual pres and only takes about 45 minutes or so. Can you make it?
The presenter can make calls to invite with the host on a 3way call, if the host prefers.
They do promote having biz kits available for new enrollees.
They use the flipchart.
Demos they use:
In Bruce’s terms: cascade cooking!
Jars of Melapower & water with fabric vs jar of tide in water with fabric. Just make this and keep handy for future use. (Rebeca makes several and gives to new enrollees that will be doing inhomes.)
Sol-u-mel and tile. Have a guest write on the tile with permanent maker. Have guest spray 409 or fantastic on it and try to get off. Use solumel in spray bottle, not diluted, and have the guest then spray it on and hold up. Everyone will see it bleeding. (NOTE: to re-use the tike, you must wash it off. The oil remains on, and if you do the demo again, it will appear like the fantastic is removing it!)
They do these doing the ecosense portion of the presentation.
They will invite a guest up to 4 times. (Kirsten’s rule. Bruce never gives up on them and she is done with them after 4!)
They do not use the toxic brew video.
Max time of 45 minutes.
After the Ecosense portion, they go into comp plan, preferred customer benefits, then enroll them!
If you do not have people you personally know to invite, look around you. People often mistake warm market for only friends and family. It is store owners in town, bus drivers, the people at the cleaners you see every week, the butcher, etc….. Join bus. organizations and groups. Get out there and share wellness with others! Again, it’s about who you talked to today about Melaleuca.
If you want personal time with Bruce (and you’re in his org), you must provide him with your business report, and current in touch reports.
They do not put personals below their 3rd level. They put serious biz builders on 1st or 2nd. Mostly 2nd. Do not ever place a personal under anyone other than your personal. It affects your PEG.
Rebeca Connor’s famed demo bag:
It is a large bag, with pockets inside and an outside flap. She puts products inside, and paperwork in the flap part. She carries eucerin-renew
Solumel, tile and 409
Attain, access, proflex and fiber bars
Closed jars with Melapower and tide with fabric in them.
Toothpaste, soap, sample sized items
A bottle of tough n tender concentrate, and a tough n tender spray bottle. This shows the person what a value dollar for dollar the product is. She feels we compete there with the dollar store. The bottles can actually be empty for that purpose.
Tub n tile and a penny.
