Dear VitaMist Family

What an incredible month June has been, and as I write this, it’s still not quite over! Throughout June our VitaMist family has been expanding like never before. VitaMist really is exploding!

 

Steering a business like VitaMist is never straightforward. Our Distributors are all over the country and it is our job, at the Home Office in Phoenix, to keep everyone up to date and informed about what is going on. Over the past 2 – 3 years we have tried a lot of new and exciting approaches, some have worked, others have not! Over the last couple of months we have started to see what works and what does not in our quest to make VitaMist into a turnkey system.

 

What do I mean by turnkey? Well, in a turnkey business, the emphasis is on “the system.” The system must be so effective and so reproducible, that you can be sure that the same result is produced each time. Perhaps one of the best examples of the turnkey business is McDonalds. The McDonalds franchise owner needs to do very little apart from ‘turn the keys’ of the operation and “the system” takes care of the rest. The result? McDonalds franchises have a 1400% higher success rate than traditional businesses.

 

Our goal at VitaMist is to do the same thing, and “the system” is falling into place. You will see it all fall into place this month at the homecoming event and the months to follow. When you leave homecoming, you will have the foundations of the turnkey system, with the month to come you will see the introduction of more parts of the system, like a DVD/CD that can be handed to people as a great way to pre-qualify them for VitaMist. If YOU follow the system, then you, just like the McDonalds owner, will have a 1400% higher success rate than traditional network marketing.

 

Albert Einstein could have been talking about VitaMist when he said:

 

Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.

MLM Business Q & A

Did you ever hear the expression “you only have one chance to make a first impression”?  Well, it’s true, and that first impression that you leave with anyone you meet is THE most important.  If you want to share VitaMist with other people, the way you approach them on your first meeting will determine the success (or otherwise) of the relationship. 

So here are a few tips to help you leave a GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION.  These days, being good is not good enough; you have to be the best.

What should I wear?

Dress your best! Even in these days of increasingly casual corporate dress, people representing a company are usually expected to look sharp. A man should wear a tie and jacket. A woman should dress similarly and conservatively. Women should wear minimal jewelry and keep their makeup simple. If the prospect that you are calling on will be wearing a suit, you should as well. Remember, you can’t go wrong by dressing your best.

When should I arrive?

Arrive ten minutes before your scheduled appointment. If you arrive any earlier, sit and read in your car or go to a coffee shop to set up the meeting spot. If you are meeting at a house or office, arriving too early may make you seem overeager and put too much pressure on the person you are meeting to see you earlier than the appointed time.

Should I invite the prospect out to lunch?

If your appointment is before lunch and you are building a good rapport with the prospect, inviting them to lunch is often a good way to improve the relationship. But if rapport is developing slowly, a lunch invitation may seem awkward and weaken your standing.

Should I stick to business on the first visit?

On an in-person visit, try to talk at least briefly about a non-business topic. This tactic will usually make everyone feel more at ease and may even relax the prospective client into being more open-minded about your product. Try to discuss a non-controversial trend in the industry or a personal hobby. But don’t force conversation in this direction if the prospect doesn’t seem interested. Don’t let non-business conversations take over.

When should I try to close?

Your best chance for closing will occur after you have established a good rapport and presented your product or service as carefully as possible. Determine in advance how much time you will have with the prospect. Always make sure you know what your time allotment will be and then try to time your first attempt at closing about three-quarters of the way through your appointment. This will maximize your time for making the presentation while allowing you plenty of time to discuss any objections.

The great advantage of face-to-face meetings is that you can read body language.  Is the prospect listening? Which points does he or she seem to pay the most attention to? This helps to focus your presentation.

Don’t forget, if you feel that a sale isn’t forthcoming, you should always try for another goal, for example, a trial of the products, or a follow-up meeting.

Remember, it is much easier to share VitaMist in person than it is over the phone!

Health TIP

Throughout the last month, the major focus for VitaMist was weight loss.  If you are doing a wellness program every month through VitaMist, you would have received in the past complimentary packets of our greatest product, B-Slim.  Weight loss and B-Slim were also the major focus for our Product calls in the past.

 

Why are we paying all this attention to weight loss?  Quite simply, I believe obesity is the number one health problem facing the country.  It has reached epidemic proportions, and it is getting worse. 

 

You, our VitaMist clients, are, by definition, a group of health conscious people (otherwise you would not be using the world’s best nutritional supplements).  It falls on all of us, as health conscious individuals, to continue to promote good health and proper nutrition as a lifestyle.

 

For this month’s Health Tip, it is my great pleasure to present an article on this subject from Dr. James A. Martin, the Senior Member of our Medical Advisory Board.

 

Obesity is now considered to be an epidemic in the United States, not only affecting adults, but our children as well.  The diseases associated with carrying around even a few extra pounds include diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, sleep disorders, joint pain, and now some cancers.  Society tells us that we need to be thin for aesthetic reasons, but we need to maintain the correct weight for health reasons.  Being fat is killing us.

 

At the most basic level, to lose weight, we need to burn off more calories than we take in.  In order to do that effectively and in a healthy manner, we need to approach the problem from several different angles, and not fall prey to fad diets, magic pills or the latest exercise machine being sold on infomercials.

 

First, restrict caloric intake.  To kick start weight loss, you need to start out with a low-calorie diet, the precise details of which depend on the health needs of each individual.  Don’t follow a crazy fad diet, which never works in the long run.  I always suggest regular, everyday food that you can buy in the grocery store and cook at home.  Include all of the food groups, with few restrictions save for refined sugars, saturated fats, somewhat fewer “white” carbs (rice,  potatoes, pasta, bread), and place an emphasis on whole fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats (nuts, avocado, fish, etc.)   In this way, you’re not going on a “diet”, per se, but just re-learning how to eat correctly and give your body the nutrients it needs to operate at its most efficient.  The idea is to GET THE MOST NUTRITIONAL BANG FOR EACH CALORIE!

 

As an interesting aside: recent studies have shown that long term calorie restriction (1800-2000 per day) actually leads to a much longer life span.  The body learns that it doesn’t have any resources to waste and it becomes super-efficient at the cellular level.  You find that you actually have a much higher level of energy and brain function.  Some experts believe that if we follow this type of eating plan, we can live to 120 or even older.

 

Second, we must elevate metabolism, or the burning of caloric energy.  This can be achieved in several ways:

1Exercise.  Minimum of 3 times a week for 30 minutes.  This should be a combination of cardio and weights.  Building muscle helps keep the body firm while losing fat, but muscle also burns a lot more calories that fat.  After a good cardio workout, the metabolic level remains elevated for 2-3 hours.

2 – EAT TO LOSE – Minimum of 3 times per day.  Do not skip any meals, especially breakfast.  It is essential to start burning calories first thing in the morning and to get a good energy base for the rest of the day.  By giving the body nutrition several (at least 3) times a day, the burning off process never really stops.  If you do skip meals, it forces the body into conservation mode and it starts storing fat for future use.

 

EATING TIPS:

Do not eat too late.  There should be a minimum of three hours between your last meal and going to bed.  You must give your body time to use what you’ve just put into it; otherwise it goes into “storage” in the form of fat.

Eat slowly.  Put your fork down between each bite.  Chew and swallow and only then raise the fork for the next bite.  You get full sooner and with much less food intake.

Use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate.  You fill the plate up with much less food and the brain sees a full plate (= a lot of food) instead of a big empty plate with very small portions.

Cut out the sodas, especially regular soda, but even diet.

 

3 – Nutritional Therapy – It is essential to make sure you do not feel an overwhelming sense of hunger.  B-Slim can help with this.  It is highly effective in controlling appetite and has absolutely no possibility of becoming habit forming.  It contains dietary fiber to help with regularity and the cleansing of toxins from the body as your health improves.  As far as the taste is concerned, it has a delicious lemonade flavor and can be used with plain water or added to a fruit juice, iced tea, etc.  All in all, it is highly effective from several different perspectives and is an invaluable addition to any weight loss program.

Summer Health Tips

EAT EGGS

To block fat absorption…  EGGS Yes, we listed eggs in the muscle-building foods.  Research supports that those who start their day with eggs not only eat fewer calories throughout the day but also lose significantly more body-fat.

 

EAT GINGER

Before your workout to prevent post-workout soreness… GINGER Used for centuries to help relieve digestive upset/disturbances, ginger can also help reduce inflammation, boost blood flow to muscles and aid muscle recovery It has also has been shown to boost calorie burn when eaten.

 

THE NEW QUINOA

Fewer calories than rice with tree times as much fiber, plus protein and antioxidant… Quinoa, an ancient grain and a complete protein, decreases appetite and is rich in amino acids and vitamin E.

 

MINERAL WATER 

Is more hydrating than tap or plain bottled water. It contains bicarbonate (an electrolyte) and calcium, which improves hydrating so you don’t fatigue. We like to make it at home.

 

THINK TWICE before eating your next slice of pizza…  The crust in ONE slice of pizza has as many calories as tree slices of bread.

 

EAT YOGURT to reduce belly fat storage, as part of the Flat Belly Plan; you should eat about 6 ounces of low-fat Greek yogurt before every meal. Why? It’s thought that calcium can help stop fat from entering your cells, improve your body’s ability to break down fat and help your body carry out fat through your bowel movements. Apples to fill you up on a few calories, lentils to bust fat burning.

 

July Product of the Month

Written By: Graphics Department - Aug• 20•14

Did YOU realize that the Product of the Month is also a BUSINESS TOOL?

Selecting the featured product(s) is always very difficult.  There are two purposes behind the Product of the Month program – first, we want to reward all Distributors who commit to a regular monthly order, and second, we want everyone to experience all VitaMist’s different products.

What do you do with the Product of the Month?  Do you know that there are many ways you can use this free gift to help your business?  You can use the free tube as a sample to hand out to potential clients and future distributors – give someone a tube, let them try it for a month.  Alternatively, keep the Product of the Month and use it as a tester – this way, you can let hundreds of people try the benefits of VitaMist.  Let people find out how good they taste, how effective they are, and how easy they are to use.  If neither of these ideas appeals to you, you can use the free tubes as just good old profit!  Sell the free tube – it’s like a $25.00 bonus EACH MONTH, EVERY MONTH.

Re-Leaf is the product of the month

The healing power of nature is yours with this unique spray. The herbal ingredients that make up Re-Leaf have been used for centuries in the treatment of a large variety of ailments. Feverfew, for example, is an herb that has been used in the treatment of fever, colds, muscle tension and even migraine.  In fact, there is a considerable amount of current research into the benefits of feverfew in the treatment of migraine.

Another essential component of Re-Leaf is valerian root.  Valerian is an herb revered for its hypnotic, antispasmodic and stimulant properties.  It has been used to combat stress, nervousness and cramps and is also found in many herbal sleep aids (including our “SLEEP” spray).

Re-Leaf also includes Echinacea – widely reported to help strengthen the immune system – and ginkgo biloba – one of the most popular herbs in Europe – known to increase blood flow to the brain thereby enhancing memory and reaction time.

These are just four of more than a dozen herbs that make up this powerful spray. We have also added essential B-vitamins, which your body needs to fight pain and stress.

If you believe in the healing powers of herbs, then VitaMist Re-Leaf is the spray for you.
