“I already had the entrepreneurial spirit, but it took Shaklee to provide me with the chance.” — Sarah S.
My grandparents were Holocaust survivors, and they instilled ambition in all of us. They believed in the American Dream. So I already had the entrepreneurial spirit, but it took Shaklee to provide me with the chance. I can rely on their researchers to do all the hard work in creating the products. Their integrity is essential to me, but the part that matters even more than money is knowing that I’ve helped people, at the end of the day.
Like most of the other Shaklee people I’ve met, it started when I myself discovered a Shaklee product and then realized the potential there. I have seven kids, and like my house to be non-toxic throughout. I had used a Shaklee stain remover; then discovered their health products, (since I am predisposed to diabetes, the low glycemic products really appealed to me); then I tried their supplements and weight loss products…everything was of such quality I knew I was on to something good. I never have to “sell” anything—all I have to do is talk about what I know to be true.
I knew my life had changed for the better when I walked with my son to the school bus. I saw other mothers rushing away to get to work on time, and I simply went home and earned far more than they ever could.
I was never a person to step up or speak publicly; I started out just a little chicken afraid to peep. But I slowly got promotions that moved me to a six-figure income, and I’m proud of that. As time passed, my confidence grew, and people within Shaklee took an interest in me as a person and helped and advised me: I never felt that I was just on my own, even though I was my own boss. Now I can speak before a roomful of people at a big convention: I could never have imagined doing that before!
