Shaklee “FastTRACK” Career Development program
open to existing Distributors for a Limited Time only

We are back from an exciting time in Anaheim, California at the Shaklee Global Conference. This was a tremendous convention for a number of reasons, including new products and an all new compensation program. While many companies are struggling because of the recession Shaklee is experiencing significant growth and is well positioned for even greater expansion in the future!

We encourage you to learn more about all the recent announcements at our weekly conference calls, beginning this Saturday!

As a result of the introduction of the new “Dream Plan” compensation system that will go into effect October 1st Shaklee is making a limited-time offer for existing Shaklee Distributors: Beginning this month (August) you have an opportunity to enter the FastTRACK career development program. This program is usually available only to NEW Distributors, but to give you a chance to take advantage of all the new incentives Shaklee is making an exception to this policy.

FastTRACK gives you the opportunity to build a strong Shaklee career and earn up to $100,000 in the first fifteen months, PLUS additional benefits such as more trips and a new bonus car within as little as 9 months!

Shaklee is committed to make its business opportunity available to everyone who wants to take advantage of it. And, you don’t have to wait years until you make significant money. They are willing to invest in you with additional incentives to help you get started! All it takes is the desire to build a stronger future for yourself, and commitment to work 10-12 hours per week for 15 months.

And, FastTRACK is easier than ever! Simpler requirements and new programs to help you along the way. This includes “Team Up”, a quarterly support team that you can join to work alongside others doing the same thing. Participating in Team Up can give you additional prizes such as an iPad, video camera and more!

But, as an existing Distributor, you must register for FastTRACK as soon as possible. Don’t delay! Contact us today for more information on what the new “Dream Plan” and FastTRACK can mean for you, and the assistance that we will provide.

We’re here to help you achieve your dreams!

Anaheim – Saturday

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

It’s hard to believe the Global Conference is already over!

Saturday was the day to put everything together that had been given to us the previous two days. The morning began with a workshop event that featured “fireside chats” with various Shaklee Business Leaders sharing their ideas and success experiences on a variety of things. Lots of great ideas!

The afternoon’s closing session featured a focus on Shaklee International. The company is experiencing dramatic results in its international markets – over 50% increase total in just two years! And in some markets, like China and Malaysia the growth is mind boggling. This is obviously the future of Shaklee and we have an opportunity to get involved, including next year’s expansion to Indonesia.

Also, during the final session Shaklee brings in an outside guest who speaks to provide inspiration and/or motivation. This year we were privileged to have Bruce Feiler, an author and host of several TV specials.

Following the gala banquet, with over 4000 people in one well-appointed room, we all returned to the arena one last time for “Shaklee’s Got Talent”, a fun evening featuring a variety of talented Shaklee members and distributors. Always, a great time!

It might sound like hype to say that was the best convention yet. But, the truth is that Shaklee is constantly doing everything they can to learn from past years and to tweak these events to make them truly spectacular. They are paced well, and feature the right types and balance of content to make an impact on our business. Of course, the biggest story this year is the new Dream Plan, and that alone made this a monumental Global Conference and one that will set the stage for greater things to come in the future.

Hopefully you can join us next year in Washington, D.C.!

Be sure to join our Saturday Conference Calls over the next few weeks as we recap and provide more details on all the news from this year’s Global Conference!

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!

Anaheim – Thursday

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Despite registration and other pre-convention activities today was the official beginning to this year’s Global Conference. And, wow! What a beginning!

As is usually the case the first day is centered around an extensive keynote address by Chairman and CEO Roger Barnett. In addition to portraying his strong vision for the company, Roger spent most of his time describing the new “Dream Plan” compensation plan that Shaklee is launching this fall. It is the culmination of several years of work that the company has been going through in order to completely revamp its marketing system. And, now all the pieces have come together in an all new plan that is much simpler, but also much more lucrative. So much, so that Shaklee has applied for at least two patents to protect it from other companies trying to copy it.

In short, the new Dream Plan provides greater income opportunities for those just staring in the business, and greater long term income by expanding infinity earnings. And, of course, the big news is the introduction of an all new car program that is focused on hybrids, ranging from the economical to the Mercedes-Benz S400 in a unique Shaklee green. A new Shaklee Distributor can earn a car in as little as 9 months.

All of this is closely linked to the FastTRACK program, which has been further simplified and enhanced. In fact, good news for existing Distributors who have never before been a Director. You have one more opportunity this fall to enter FastTRACK and take advantage of the exceptional bonuses that can allow you to earn up to $100,000 in fifteen months.

Obviously there are many more details about these changes that cannot be described here. In fact, major workshops were held this afternoon to train us in the new Dream Plan. Watch for more details coming soon. Of course, contact us for information and assistance to get started on your business, or to take your existing business to a new level. 

There were several other important announcements today. The 2011 Global Conference will be in Washington, D.C. And the Incentive Trip is at Atlantis in the Bahamas. Top Achievers will have an additional vacation in exotic Bora Bora! Later in the afternoon we were able to take in a presentation of the new technology enhancements that are coming mid-September. is being completely revamped with an impressive new look that makes it much easier to use. As part of this Distributors and above will be able to take advantage of the completely redesigned and simpler to use “My Business” services (formerly known as iTrack).

This was an exciting day! Without question there was a high level of “buzz” around the convention as people were overtaken by all the good news. In the history of Shaklee these changes will mark one of the most important turning points for the company. In some ways there was too much to absorb, one of the reasons that, unlike previous years, Shaklee refrained from giving us all the new announcements on the first day.

Friday will bring us much more, and focused on science and products. Three new products will be introduced and we look forward to sharing the information with you!
