Nerium’s Positive Brand Partner Growth, Product Awards, and New Field Leadership

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-international/neriums-positive-brand-partner-growth-product-awards-and-new-field-leadership/

Nerium’s company history is all about doing things differently! By bringing innovative new skincare and wellness solutions to market in addition to recent sales incentives, we’re continuing to do just that. The response in the first quarter of 2018 has been a wave of positive business growth across all markets, from the press release:

Nerium International’s U.S. and global sales teams are flourishing in markets throughout North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Europe with month over month growth in new brand partners joining Nerium in many markets. Nerium reports that Q1 new Brand Partner growth was phenomenal and is trending upward as compared to the previous month. In February, Nerium Australia saw a 90 percent increase, Nerium Mexico a 120 percent increase, and Nerium Colombia a 245 percent increase. In March, Nerium U.S. and Nerium Hong Kong each saw a 73 percent increase, Nerium Japan an 85 percent increase, Nerium Canada a 163 percent increase and Nerium Korea experienced an unprecedented 237 percent increase. Nerium International has also announced its intent to expand in Switzerland to complement its German and Austrian European markets.

Having debuted in January, Nerium Prolistic Skin-Balancing Lotion has already been featured in the New York Post and awarded by OK! Magazine as one the award-worthy launches of 2018. Together with the Prolistic Pre-& Probiotic Plus Vitamin Powder, it’s a complete wellness solution that produces optimal benefits on your skin and in your gut. That’s protection essential for any season!

Also in January, Bo Short, joined Nerium International as our Chief Sales Officer and his leadership is rippling throughout the organization. “With the addition of Bo Short leading our sales organization and his focus on field training and leadership development, and the strategic introduction of innovative new skincare and wellness products, Nerium International is experiencing impressive growth of new Independent Brand Partners in recent months,” said Founder and CEO Jeff Olson.

Beyond growth of new Brand Partners, Nerium has also seen some exciting rank advancements in its existing Brand Partner base. We celebrated Jenny Song from Nerium Korea as a new 4-Star National Marketing Director. Bo Short says Jenny is “an example of high achievement and determination who—without any direct sales experience, worked over the last few years to help her team succeed and is reaping the rewards of that hard work. We are extremely proud of Jenny as a beacon of light to others as to what is possible.”

With the double- and triple-digit percentage growth in new Brand Partners joining Nerium International in recent months, world-class products, and strong business leadership, it’s no wonder that our annual sales convention in Las Vegas is titled, “No Boundaries”. Make plans to join us the Nerium Get Real Conference this July as we set our sights on continued growth in 2018 and beyond.

4 Steps to the Best You

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/personal-development-2/4-steps-to-the-best-you/

Deborah K. Heisz is the CEO, Co-Founder and Editorial Director of Live Happy and President of Nerium International.


Get Happy

Before I learned about positive psychology and began working with Live Happy Founder, Jeff Olson, to launch the magazine, I admit I didn’t completely grasp how everyday choices in addition to the right foundation can build even greater life satisfaction and fulfillment. I get it now. Finding joy in your everyday journey is an integral part of living a life that’s purpose-filled, healthy and meaningful. Here’s how you can accomplish the same:

Step 1: Celebrate Your Wins

Celebrating a huge accomplishment comes naturally, but don’t forget to acknowledge the small wins as well! It may seem insignificant to others and maybe even to you in the greater scheme of things, but at some point, you’ll look to the past and see your strength in those moments. Sheryl Swoopes writes, “No matter how far life pushes you down, no matter how much you hurt, you can always bounce back.” Make a list of things you’ve already overcome in your life — acknowledge your journey and celebrate all your wins!

Step 2: You Are What You Think

Ask any influential leader and they will surely tell you that your mindset plays a huge part in whether you succeed in your personal and professional journey. Many people believe that our thoughts and hearts are linked. Instead of fearing the “what ifs” in life or doubting your own journey, redirect your focus to the now. You can’t do anything about the past and you can’t see the future. But, you do have control over your decisions, thoughts, and actions in the present day. Focus on your journey and your goals. If you believe that’s easier said than done, here is a great list of books that will encourage you to change the way you think.

Step 3: Slow Down to Go Fast

One of my favorite people on this planet, Jeff Olson, believes in getting the job done right the first time. He believes so much in the philosophy of slowing down to go fast that he even incorporated it into Nerium’s core company values. This core value is also fundamental after bouncing back from a setback. Allow yourself time to reflect on circumstances and experiences, grieve if needed, and begin the healing process. The truth is everyone experiences ups and downs in their lives. Take a moment to reflect on past decisions, learn from those moments but then peacefully detach and move on.

Step 4: No Man is an Island

Have you heard the expression by English poet John Donne, “No man is an island.”? When Donne wrote these words in the 17th century—which you’ll find in Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions and Seuerall Steps in my SicknesDonne expressed the idea that people need to be part of a community to thrive. He writes, “No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main….” Your journey doesn’t have to happen in isolation—in fact, it shouldn’t! You don’t have to be an island. Find a like-minded person who shares your motivation, vision and goals, and include them in your support group! Whether you choose a co-worker, a friend, or a mentor, it’s up to you! On livehappy.com, we share a beautiful article about the bond of sisterhood. Read it, you may be inspired to find your support group in unlikely places.

Find joy in your journey and live a fulfilling life that has purpose and meaning. With one life to live is there really an alternative?

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-product/fight-fine-lines-and-wrinkles-with-nerium-age-defying-day-cream-2/

Your skin is the first line of defense against life’s elements and subject to the hands of time. As a result, signs of aging begin to show whether you’re ready for it or not. Don’t worry! Nerium International’s age-defying skincare solutions will help to better prepare and guard your skin against exposure to everyday environmental factors.

Why Use Age-Defying Day Cream 

Keep your skin looking healthy and youthful by choosing a lightweight, moisturizing cream that nourishes as well as guards your skin against harmful elements.

Formulated with patented age-fighting ingredients and a powerful blend of antioxidants, Nerium has the best Day Cream that helps to boost the natural cell renewal process to reveal a younger-looking you.

Powerful Ingredients

Here at Nerium, we understand exactly how important it is for your skin to absorb the full range of anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients without leaving your skin feeling heavy or greasy from product. Using Day Cream in the mornings after properly cleansing your face will help to accomplish the following:

  • Guard the skin against oxidative stress caused by exposure to everyday environmental factors
  • Bind moisture to the skin for long-lasting hydration

Before applying Nerium’s Day Cream for the first time, make sure to take a “before” picture. Each month after, retake that picture so you can evaluate the progress of your results.

How to Use

  • Step 2: After cleansing your face, apply four pumps of Day Cream to your face and neck while avoiding the sensitive skin around your eyes, including the lower lash line.
  • Step 3: After application, allow Day Cream to soak into your skin to fully absorb all the age-fighting ingredients.

As if all the benefits of using this product isn’t enough, Nerium’s Age-Defying Day Cream absorbs right into your skin, leaving no sign of residue.

How to Become an Influential Leader

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/personal-development-2/how-to-become-an-influential-leader/

What Makes an Influential Leader?

You’ve probably heard this before: being a leader doesn’t require a title and having a title doesn’t make you a leader. Leaders are different from managers for an obvious reason — true leaders influence others to become better versions of themselves, but that’s easier said than done. In fact, transitioning from the one to the other can be quite a big jump!

Think about it this way: a manager tells people what to do, but a leader inspires people to do better. If you aspire to be a great manager, i.e., an expert planner, organizer, and coordinator, that’s great! All organizations and teams across the world need effective managers, too. If your goal is to motivate and to inspire, though, being an influential leader is likely in your future!

Learn. Grow. Thrive.

Leadership doesn’t imply authority. Leadership implies influence. You should also know that becoming an influential leader doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process and certainly a learning curve! Luckily, I’ve had several encouraging and authentic mentors over the years that have helped me along this journey, and as I became more passionate about this topic, I have invested time in reading and taking courses to learn all I can. With that said, here are my five tips to help you on your journey to becoming an influential leader.

  1. Have a Clear and Compelling Destination

Are your goals keeping you up late at night? Do you set your alarm clock or do your goals wake you in the morning? If your destination is clear and compelling, your goals will drive everything you do. The truth is that leaders who do not clearly define their goals are not likely to be followed. First things first, write down your goals, post them to your dream board, and speak them into existence. Without a compelling destination, your team will find it difficult to see the vision of where you are headed, and not be compelled to follow you there.

  1. Communicate the WHY and not Just the WHAT

Here’s an important difference between managers and leaders. Managers tell people what to do. Leaders inspire people to do better. If you communicate the WHY it will invoke more creativity and problem-solving in those around you, then simply telling them WHAT to do. The WHAT is the work. The WHY is the vision, inspiration, and reason behind what you need to accomplish. Your job as the leader is to help your team understand the philosophy behind the end goal. Empower your team to do the WHY and the WHAT will follow!

  1. Focus on the Few

High productivity means leveraging your time by ONLY doing the MOST important things. If you’re like me, I’m sure you’re being pulled in different directions all day long. That’s why it’s essential you become discerning about how to spend your time —you can apply this tip to your personal and professional life!

What’s more, did you know that 80% of results are based on only 20% of the activity? For this reason, focus on developing the two to three activities that would drive the most results. Yes, that means letting go of the rest, but be OK with that! Be laser-focused on your top priorities and hone the skills necessary for profound impact. Once you’ve evaluated how you’re spending your time relating to those two to three activities, you’ll have a better understanding of how to adjust your priorities to get to your goal.

  1. Empower but Don’t Enable

As a leader, people will bring you their problems. Oftentimes, your instinct is to rescue them… but if you do you’re doing them a disservice. Why? Even though your intentions are good, by rescuing others you’re creating an army of problem gatherers instead of an army of problem solvers! As a leader, you must encourage problem-solving and not problem gathering. Once your team can exist and function without coming to you every time they’re faced with a challenge, you know you’re doing a great job! This is also imperative to growing to the next level of being an influential leader when you can surround yourself with a team of people that can solve problems. Remember: Leaders don’t create followers, they create other leaders!

  1. Model the Behavior We Want Others to Emulate

I love this idea: It’s super easy to pick up on a disconnect between what people say and what people do. The truth is people watch what you do and do what you do! That’s why it’s so important to model the right behavior from having the right attitude and posture to how you interact with others. Those are the lenses people see you through. Keep in mind, modeling leadership behavior also means extreme accountability. At all costs, no matter what, you must be accountable and never shift the blame but always have grace and stay calm under pressure.

If your goal is to motivate and to inspire, though, being an influential leader is likely in your future!

Learn. Grow. Thrive.

Leadership doesn’t imply authority. Leadership implies influence. You should also know that becoming an influential leader doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process and certainly a learning curve! Luckily, I’ve had several encouraging and authentic mentors over the years that have helped me along this journey, and as I became more passionate about this topic, I have invested time in reading and taking courses to learn all I can. With that said, here are my five tips to help you on your journey to becoming an influential leader.

  1. Have a Clear and Compelling Destination

Are your goals keeping you up late at night? Do you set your alarm clock or do your goals wake you in the morning? If your destination is clear and compelling, your goals will drive everything you do. The truth is that leaders who do not clearly define their goals are not likely to be followed. First things first, write down your goals, post them to your dream board, and speak them into existence. Without a compelling destination, your team will find it difficult to see the vision of where you are headed, and not be compelled to follow you there.

  1. Communicate the WHY and not Just the WHAT

Here’s an important difference between managers and leaders. Managers tell people what to do. Leaders inspire people to do better. If you communicate the WHY it will invoke more creativity and problem-solving in those around you, then simply telling them WHAT to do. The WHAT is the work. The WHY is the vision, inspiration, and reason behind what you need to accomplish. Your job as the leader is to help your team understand the philosophy behind the end goal. Empower your team to do the WHY and the WHAT will follow!

  1. Focus on the Few

High productivity means leveraging your time by ONLY doing the MOST important things. If you’re like me, I’m sure you’re being pulled in different directions all day long. That’s why it’s essential you become discerning about how to spend your time —you can apply this tip to your personal and professional life!

What’s more, did you know that 80% of results are based on only 20% of the activity? For this reason, focus on developing the two to three activities that would drive the most results. Yes, that means letting go of the rest, but be OK with that! Be laser-focused on your top priorities and hone the skills necessary for profound impact. Once you’ve evaluated how you’re spending your time relating to those two to three activities, you’ll have a better understanding of how to adjust your priorities to get to your goal.

  1. Empower but Don’t Enable

As a leader, people will bring you their problems. Oftentimes, your instinct is to rescue them… but if you do you’re doing them a disservice. Why? Even though your intentions are good, by rescuing others you’re creating an army of problem gatherers instead of an army of problem solvers! As a leader, you must encourage problem-solving and not problem gathering. Once your team can exist and function without coming to you every time they’re faced with a challenge, you know you’re doing a great job! This is also imperative to growing to the next level of being an influential leader when you can surround yourself with a team of people that can solve problems. Remember: Leaders don’t create followers, they create other leaders!

  1. Model the Behavior We Want Others to Emulate

I love this idea: It’s super easy to pick up on a disconnect between what people say and what people do. The truth is people watch what you do and do what you do! That’s why it’s so important to model the right behavior from having the right attitude and posture to how you interact with others. Those are the lenses people see you through. Keep in mind, modeling leadership behavior also means extreme accountability. At all costs, no matter what, you must be accountable and never shift the blame but always have grace and stay calm under pressure.

Harness the Power of Pre & Probiotics

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-product/harness-the-power-of-pre-probiotics/

See Yourself Balanced, Inside and Out

When people hear words like germs and bacteria, they often think about illness and disease. The truth is that even though your body is full of bad bacteria, your body also carries good bacteria. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that help balance the harmful bacteria in your body. Then, there’s also prebiotics, which acts as food for the probiotics. The important thing to remember is that both pre- and probiotics can positively impact your health!

Discover Balance with Pre- & Probiotics

Recently, Nerium introduced two new products: Prolistic Skin-Balancing Lotion with Probiotic Technology and Prolistic Pre & Probiotic Plus Vitamins powder. These two products are used separately but work synergistically to produce optimal benefits on your skin and in your gut for a happier and healthier you.

Sooth and Hydrate Your Skin

Prolistic Lotion is a lightweight, overall body lotion that features Nerium’s exclusive ProRenew Plus — a prebiotic and probiotic lysate blend which improves skin cell renewal, natural exfoliation, and supports a healthy skin microbiome. Prolistic lotion can generously be applied over your entire body and helps skin to feel hydrated and nourished.

Optimize the Health of Your Digestive System

Nerium’s Prolistic Probiotic Powder contains both probiotic strains and prebiotics, which work synergistically to help support your digestive health and enhance levels of beneficial bacteria in your gut. Additionally, essential vitamins help support the body’s immune system and natural energy production.* Perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle, our Probiotic Powder dissolves in your mouth, no water required!

Keep your body in a state of balance and harmony when you use Prolistic Powder and Lotion. Available separately or as a combo pack for your convenience. Our comprehensive age-fighting product line combines the best of science and nature to deliver proven results, transforming how you look on the outside and feel on the inside. With Nerium, you can see the difference, and you can feel the difference.

3 Tips to Help You Unleash Your Inner Entrepreneur

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-international/a-new-year-a-new-you-this-is-how-you-keep-your-goals-on-track-2/

Jeff Olson, Founder and CEO of Nerium International™, is a dynamic and visionary leader who has served in many executive roles across different business channels and companies. He is also a best-selling author and speaker.

Do the Thing…

Nerium has been blessed. In our short time of operating, we’ve reached unprecedented success and I believe the best is yet to come! We launched Nerium around three words: Make People Better. As an industry leader in age-fighting solutions, we want you to look better, feel better, and live better. That’s why Nerium is motivated to develop innovative age-defying skincare and wellness solutions. We are also laser-focused on bringing you entrepreneurial opportunities to help you live your dream life.

And You Shall Have the Power

Let’s jump right in! The life of an entrepreneur can be extremely rewarding. In past years, I’ve spoken to many people with the intelligence and ability to make it work as an entrepreneur, but fear and doubt get in the way, so they don’t even try! Here’s what I like to say to these folks: “Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.” I’m not sure who the author is but the message spot on. With the right philosophy, you can do anything. Remember, it’s never too late to start but it’s always too late to wait !!!

A Frog on a Lily Pad

Here’s the best advice I can give you: be the frog who not only decides to jump off the lily pad but actually jumps. If you haven’t read The Slight Edge, here’s what I mean: DECIDING to do something doesn’t mean anything. Actually DOING IT is the key! With that said, here are three tips (and there’ll be more tips in my next blog) to help you prepare to unleash your inner entrepreneur.

  1. Jump
    I’m positive every person in the world has some kind of dream — whether it is about your career or the person you want to marry. Every person wants something. Everyone has a dream but not everyone has vision. The difference is talking about everything you want to accomplish will not advance you to where you want to go. DOING it, like I said before, is key. Commit to action and you’ve already won half the battle. Don’t be the frog on the lily pad who just decides to jump. Take action and do it. Remember, your ultimate goal may remain the same from year to year but it’s only normal to constantly revise your plan and the path that will get you there.
  2. Step Up Your Game
    Taking the step that commits you to action is only one half of the challenge. The other half is consistency. Keep your eyes on the prize and every day, no matter what, keep at it. Most people give up before they even really get started which means more than half of your competition is eliminated. Keeping pushing forward. Consistency pays off.
  3. See the Glass As At Least Half Full
    Research shows that people who consistently practice seeing challenges as opportunities rather than problems, people who focus on the best in a situation instead of the worst, people who choose to have a positive outlook instead of a negative one, are happier, more creative, earn more money, have more friends, and even have better immune systems. There’s tons of research on this topic. Did you know you can actually train your brain to think more positive? If you have the right mindset and can think positive even when the situation looks dire, you can embrace the challenge, and look for the opportunity instead of focusing on the worst. An attitude of gratitude is one of the most consistently present traits in happier people.

I really want you to think about these three tips for the next few weeks. Let’s hold each other accountable. In the comment section, write down: (1) which action you are committing to; (2) your plan for consistently DOING the thing; and (3) the end goal you’re working toward.

On May 5th, I’ll share with you the remaining tips to help you unleash your inner entrepreneur. Let’s start this journey together!

6 Spring-Skin Essentials

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-business/6-spring-skin-essentials-to-help-start-your-journey-to-the-best-you/

See Yourself Turning Back Time

Here’s a question: how often do you think about what it would take to transform your skin? First, ask yourself what you want to accomplish. When it comes to your complexion, you may desire brighter, firmer, healthier, and younger-looking skin. Luckily, Nerium International offers many age-defying solutions to help you turn back the hands of time, so to speak. For now, let’s focus on revamping your skin, just in time for spring.

Try this: instead of adding items to your spring or summer wardrobe, add a healthy glow! Radiant skin is a great boost to anyone’s confidence and means no accessories necessary. Don’t know where to start? How about Nerium’s top six spring-skin essentials.

The Power Couple

They’re a classic! Nerium‘s power couple is designed to effectively combat the signs of aging as well as the underlying causes. Every evening, after thoroughly cleansing skin, apply Age-Defying Night Cream to face, neck, décolletage, and hands. While sleeping, rest assured that Night Cream is working to boost cells’ renewal process to reveal smoother skin.

After waking, just rinse your skin and apply Age-Defying Day Cream. Nerium’s Day Cream helps to moisturize and smooth fine lines and wrinkles while also diminishing discoloration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores and sagging skin.

The Perfect Pair

We’ve got it: your best defense against dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines! Providing immediate smoothing, plus age-fighting benefits that increase with continued use, Nerium’s transformative Age-Defying Eye Serum firms and brightens your eye area to reveal a healthier and plumper complexion.

Complimenting Eye Serum, Nerium’s innovative Eye-V Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches deliver targeted hydration to the delicate skin around the eyes for the appearance of an instant and refreshing “eye lift.” Together, these two products offer immediate and long-term benefits to freshen tired-looking eyes.

The Double-Duty Cleanser

There’s a reason celebrity make-up artist Jamie Greenberg describes Nerium’s Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash as “innovation at its best.” This advanced, lightweight cleanser conveniently combines two steps into one. Apply Face Wash to dry skin to remove oil-based impurities and makeup. With the addition of water, Face Wash transforms into a soft, milky lather for deep-down cleansing. BONUS TIP: After thoroughly cleansing your face, apply Nerium’s innovative IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield either directly to your skin or to existing products to help brighten, hydrate and guard against environmental stressors.

The All-Over Body Moisturizer

Nerium’s latest product addition, ProlisticTM Skin-Balancing Lotion with Probiotic Technology, is an all-over body lotion that soothes and supports your skin’s natural and healthy state. Perfect for revealing some skin this summer! Moreover, Prolistic Lotion works to replenish and bring balance to your skin and delivers 24- to 48-hour hydration.

It’s your turn to look good and feel great! What would it take to transform your skin?

This is How You Lead with Impact

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/announcements/this-is-how-you-lead-with-impact/

Bo Short is Nerium International’s new Chief Sales Officer and will oversee the U.S. and global sales teams, managing and direct all Nerium International salesforces in markets throughout North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Europe.

Let’s Start with Introductions

My Nerium journey officially started in January of this year. I’ve received such a warm welcome and I can’t thank everyone enough for it. Since day one, I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the friendly and positive atmosphere here at Nerium headquarters as well as in the field. And, I’m honored to be part of this great Nerium International family and culture. I look forward to working with our incredible field leaders as we continue to grow sales and strengthen Brand Partner training so that we can raise leaders across the globe to help others achieve their personal goals and aspirations.

As I’m sitting here at our offices in Addison, Texas, I realize how blessed I am. I have so many things to be grateful for. For one, I’m married to the most wonderful woman on the planet. My wife, Roni, is my inspiration. I have two beautiful daughters, Taylor and Rachel. And, I work in an industry with endless opportunities for personal and professional growth and development. Life is good but there’s always room to grow!

Before Nerium

I have spoken to more than a million people in 34 countries across the globe on the topics of leadership development and success. I’ve written and published two books on the same topic. I want to share with you a few things that I have learned on this journey that has led me to you:

1. Your Best Self is Yet to Come

I’m a firm believer that who you were in the past and who you are now is nothing compared to who you can become. During my travels around the globe, I’ve met many people satisfied with living comfortable lives. Making the decision to stay within your comfort zone is your choice and that’s OK. That’s where it’s safe. However, personally, I don’t want to live a life that’s comfortable. I want to live a life that’s significant. In the short time that I’ve been with Nerium, I’ve met many people who want the same thing!

For this reason, I’ve made it my personal mission to share with others what I’ve learned in all my years of experience: each individual’s best and highest self is all that is necessary to take the first step toward accomplishing what it is they want. I want people to understand that their best and highest effort is all that is needed to get started in creating the significance they desire for their lives. If nothing else, people — and especially, the amazing team here at Nerium — should know that your past becomes irrelevant if you’re fixed on where it is you want to go. Together, I believe we can reach new heights!

2. Lead with Impact

In an ongoing effort to motivate others to reach their full potential, I often speak about the importance of leading with impact. The truth is that to lead with impact is not necessarily a message only intended for those of you interested in leadership within a company –  it’s a message anyone can apply to their lives. Leading with impact is all about how you conduct your own life while pursuing growth. Think about it this way — to lead with impact can also simply be a reflection of your true self and how you conduct yourself as a parent, a friend, a peer, and even a partner.  It all comes down to how you want to grow as an individual and positively lead in your personal and professional life.

3. Part of the Process

When people fail at something, for some reason, they start to believe that they’re a failure. You should know (and must accept!) that failure is just part of the process. What’s important is the lesson learned. Always keep in mind that you must fail to continue your pursuit of becoming your best self. That’s the truth!

4. Words Matter

I’m a big believer that words matter. There’s power in words. You can make the decision to either build people up or tear them down. My goal is to make every interaction with another person an interaction that matters to them, because it always matters to me whether it’s a conversation with my daughters, friends, my wife or my peers.

5. Advice for the Budding Entrepreneur

There’s only one thing you should know starting out in this business: You Can Do This. It really doesn’t matter whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert. This entire business is a process of skill development, refinement, and polish. The hardest part about starting your own business is coping with the frustrations that go along with building your future.  In life, whenever you’re growing as a person, it’s going to be frustrating. Once you learn to manage your frustrations, you’ll get through the process.

Let’s find out what your strengths are and focus on building on your strengths. There really is no need to worry about what you don’t know or can’t do. You will be called upon to do new things, which will challenge your sense of comfort. Always remember, it’s a process. I have always said, “On the other side of everything you do not want to do, lives everything you want.”

6. Advice for the Seasoned Entrepreneur

With success, we all come to realize that none of us are that good! We are only good because we’ve surrounded ourselves with great people. Some people tend to think that once they’ve reached a certain level of success, they’re special. The truth is, everyone we interact with is special. Each one is filled with incredible potential. We have the opportunity to be the person that helps them unlock that potential so they live the life they dream of.  You may earn an individual check but it is important to remember that it is a team sport. Being the leader of your team is a responsibility and blessing that will give your life great meaning.

If you haven’t reached the level of success you desire, be willing to learn and grow. This great Nerium business is the place in which you can find the success you are looking for.  Your future is in front of you! Never look back. I am proud of each one of you. I am honored to serve you. I believe in you.

Always Lead,

Bo
