All we wanted was something better for ourselves.
After one failed traditional business attempt that left us on the verge of bankruptcy, we were introduced to Reliv.
When Joyce's friend introduced us to this opportunity, we had our doubts and were skeptical. We validated what she told us by having Steve start using the products because they had a money-back guarantee. Within two weeks he noticed he had more energy, less cravings and he was handling stress better (plus he was saving money every day!). Because of his results and what we learned about Reliv, we decided to get the whole family started on the products and get involved in the business at the same time.
Our family has experienced wonderful health benefits from the symptoms of sinus problems, cluster headaches, seasonal allergies, and menopause to name a few. But Steve always likes to say our best "result" is what the business has done for us.
We started part-time and in the first month we earned $500 in one of the 5 forms of income that's available with Reliv (retail).
In 1994 (our first full year) working part-time, we averaged $2,500 per month. We were able to walk away from that traditional business in March of 1995 to do Reliv full-time. That year in all forms of income we earned just over $90,000. Since 1996, we have earned a six-figure yearly income with the company.
One thing we were taught early in our business was to put the focus on helping others, not on the money. We love the freedom & flexibility--we've enjoyed working from home and being there for our children as they were growing up; being involved in church ministry and traveling.
The biggest surprise, that we didn't expect, was the sense of purpose we have about being able to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Our lives are drastically different now--we are no longer caught up in an endless cycle of toil and stress.
Reliv gave us the chance to change the direction of our lives for the better.
