Anaheim – Friday

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

Because of Thursday being such a full day at the Global Conference Shaklee intends for Friday to be much less structured. This allows considerable free time (including an opportunity for us to visit Disney’s California Adventure). The only major activity is the morning session which provides even more excitement to experience.

Thursday’s focus was the Dream Plan, the major re-working of our compensation program. That remains the hot topic among convention attendees, but today’s news kept the buzz at a heightened level. Shaklee focused on science and new products, and there was plenty of good news.

First, of all news was shared on Shaklee’s continued investment in clinical studies, keeping us way ahead of everyone else in the industry. Several studies were conducted this past year. One helped bring greater insight to the still fuzzy understanding that scientists have about the impact of supplementation on vitamin D levels in the body. Another study demonstrated that people who take Vitalizer tend to have a superior cholesterol levels. This past year another study on Vivix was conducted, this time conclusively showing that it reduces inflammation increases cellular energy. And, finally, a new clinical study shows that the combination of Cinch, Vitalizer, and exercise increase bone density. These studies are more than just scientific exploits, but truly advance nutritional science and extend Shaklee’s already high credibility.

Shaklee does not just address health sciences at an technical level. The goal is to translate all of this to real products that we can use and benefit our lives. Three new products were introduced today (in addition to Get Clean Water that was introduced just prior to the convention).

Cholesterol Reducing Complex – This is a new product that replaces our current cholesterol regulation product. What is significant about this product is that it is based on extremely good science, so much so, that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the claim that this product can reduce cholesterol! It is extremely rare for a natural supplement to make such a claim legally. Cholesterol Reducing Complex contains plant sterols and stanols that compete with cholesterol to reduce the absorption of cholesterol into the blood stream. This is the first such supplement to contain sufficient quantity of such sterols and stanols that match the recommendations of the National institute of Health. With the large number of people with high cholesterol, and the concerns over the safety of current medication options, this is a very timely product.

Vita-D3. Vitamin D is the hottest topic in nutrition today, and Shaklee continues to respond to the latest insights. This new product provides additional vitamin D (in its best form) in a 1000IU dosage. Of course, Vitalizer and Vivix have had their levels of vitamin D boosted, as will our calcium supplements.

Fiber Advantage bar. Despite the greater availability of high fiber foods on the market, one-half of North Americans still don’t get enough dietary fiber daily. Over the years Shaklee has provided a number of different fiber supplements, but because of the quantity of fiber that is required, the typical supplement formats don’t lend themselves well. To overcome this Shaklee has developed a delicious new apple-cinnamon bar that provides an incredible 8g of dietary fiber that cover the wide spectrum of the types of fiber that our body needs. These bars taste great, are 100% natural, and are low glycemic.

These are great products that we can easily share!

St. Louis report

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Now that the 2009 Global Conference is over we have an opportunity to reflect on all that we experienced this past week. As far as the annual convention is concerned this was probably the most helpful one we have attended. Shaklee worked hard to create an event that would provide us training and tools to enhance our business efforts. As a result our heads are swimming with new ideas and possibilities.

Over the coming days and weeks we will be providing more details through our blog, emails and weekly conference calls all the incredible news and discoveries, but for now here is a brief recap of what was new from St. Louis:

Shaklee continues to grow despite the recession, as more and more people are attracted to what we have to offer, both in products and opportunity.
– Our best-selling product, Vivix, is celebrating its one-year anniversary! Going forward it will have a new, more convenient bottle. In addition, single-serving pouches are available for when traveling and as samples.
– Shaklee continues its investment in research and development. In fact, we have more published clinical studies than the next five companies in our industry combined!
Four new clinical studies have just been completed further contributing to science and confirming Shaklee’s superiority. Studies demonstrate the immediate impact of Vivix, the role of vitamin D with cholesterol, Nutriferon’s production of killer cells against viruses, and the effectiveness of Cinch.
– As a result of the growing research into vitamin D, a number of our products will see increased levels.
Get Clean continues to gain attention. In fact, it is now the official cleaning product line of the White House!
– The Cinch Biggest Loser winners were introduced. The results and stories were amazing, with most winners losing over 50 pounds during the contest. One person lost 100 pounds!
– Shaklee has developed a first for our industry: a way for serious business builders to make career-level money in the earliest stages. With FastTrack a new GOLD Ambassador can make up to $100,000 in the first 15 months. This is an on-going program for new people. Existing Members and Distributors have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take advantage of this special incentive by registering and beginning by the end of August.
– Another incentive that will become permanent is Power of Ten, which all new business builders can take advantage of during their first three months.
– Shaklee is investing millions of dollars in enhanced online tools. New personal websites are being launched that will allow greater targeting, customization, utilization of social media, and business operation in both the U.S. and Canada.
– Also, Shaklee’s customer relationship management system, iTrack, has been further enhanced and will be integrated with the personal websites, and includes such features as auto-responders and contact widgets. Starting soon, all Distributors will be able to obtain this valuable service.
– Next year’s conference will be in Anaheim, California right next to Disneyland! Register by August 31st and take advantage of the special registration fee, which includes a free ticket to the closing night banquet.
– The 2010 incentive trip will be a Western Caribbean cruise! Qualification is easier than ever, and is attainable even for someone just starting out in Shaklee.

These are some of the main highlights. In fact, there’s much more. Watch for more details coming your way soon.

This is a great time to be in Shaklee!
