Get into the swing of network marketing

I’ve casually golfed a few times in my life, though I couldn’t tell you what my handicap is. I can play a mean game of miniature golf; I’m a pro at hitting the ball through the rotating windmill every time.

I’ve played enough of both games to be familiar with the equipment, some of the rules and the importance of skill development. Today on National Golf Day, let’s take a look at some golfing terminology and how it relates to network marketing.

Can you read the greens?

  1. Golf Clubs – You can have a maximum of 14 clubs in your golf bag, according to the USGA. It’s important to choose which club to use for which shot. Likewise, products by PURE target specific needs so you want to choose correctly. Just as one selects their clubs to their shot; customize the products by PURE to your body’s needs.
  2. Caddie – They don’t just clean clubs, replace divots and carry your gear, they may advise on club selection or recommend strategies. Likewise, your upline is your mentor and is available to offer advice. They’ve walked in your footsteps and know the tools you need to succeed. A good caddie can be worth several strokes a round; a good leader can propel your business to unimaginable heights.
  3. Grand Slam – This is when a golfer wins four major championships in the same year. I like to compare this to our CORE4 set of products, HealthTrim® Cleanse, GoYin, Daily Build and ENERGY, which together form a strong foundation and help set the stage for optimal wellness. Winning four championships fuels your career; CORE4 fuels your body with key nutrients to maximize you.
  4. Grain – Talk about details! Golfers can be very adept at knowing which way the grain runs in grass, as it can affect the direction a putt breaks. When you are that in tune with your customer’s needs and wants, you will win them over. Don’t try to go against the grain in golf or your business.
  5. Mechanics – How you swing and hold the club may be basic principles, but they play a big part in your game. As a network marketer, you have tools at your disposal to help you work on your swing. How you hold the club is just as important as the way you contact your prospects, share product benefits and follow up.
  6. Follow-through – This action in a golf swing will help you gain proper tempo and the correct finishing point. How about in your business? Do you consistently finish strong? Building momentum in your follow-through will help you win the game; building strong relationships in your business will open many doors.
  7. Press – This is when you try and hit the ball harder than usual. Don’t overdo it. Your outcome is dependent on your actions, no one else’s. In golf, there’s no one to blame for a shot except yourself; in network marketing, be yourself; be natural.

It’s time to tee up — are you ready? Next time you play golf, think about how it can help with your PURE business. Conversely, next time you pitch your story to a customer, get some inspiration from your game of golf.

The Masters begin on April 11. Apply some of golfing’s lessons to your business. Find your strengths and play to those. You just might make some birdies!

PURE featured in Direct Selling News

PURE was highly praised in the January edition of Direct Selling News for its steady growth in both sales force and revenue in the past two years. This edition is titled, “What you focus on grows”, which so aptly describes the transformation PURE has experienced in just a short amount of time.

The article, “A Promising Path for PURE”, recaps PURE’s growth from the creation of GoYin to the formation of PURE. Daren Hogge, PURE CEO, helped start GoYin several years ago and it eventually merged with another company in 2008, a company founded by Dae Geun Jung, now Founder and Chairman of the Board for PURE. PURE then underwent a rebrand in 2017 to become PURE: People United Reaching Everyone.

In the article, Daren Hogge refers to the HI-ACT principles as how he wants to build the company and how he wants its IBOs to build their businesses. HI-ACT is an acronym for the principles of Honesty, Integrity, Accountability, Commitment and Trustworthiness.

“We put in some founding principles that were pillars,” Daren explains. “One of them was the philosophy of our products that have come to life through the CORE4 — to cleanse the body, balance the body, build the body and provide focus for the body. All the products we developed, we created to make sure they fit into those categories and help to deliver Whole Health. The other principles we came up with are what I term the HI-ACT.”

The article continues to talk about how we’ve modernized our products to make them more mainstream with what consumers see in the marketplace — from the redesign of the GoYin bottle for our tenth anniversary celebration to bolder ENERGY packaging. And just recently, our GPS performance line was recognized by Informed Sports Certification as being safe for use by professional, collegiate and Olympic athletes.

Other notable recognition:

  • Strong leadership in its Independent Business Owners (IBOs)
  • 7-Day and 28-Day Detox Programs
  • CORE4 products featured in the 2018 Physicians’ Desk Reference
  • PURE Rank Bonus may be one of the most lucrative in the industry
  • Partnership with Disabled American Veterans (DAV)
  • Global presence with new markets in Western Africa and Thailand
  • Partnership with Gray Gaulding, PURE IBO and NASCAR driver

Going forward, Daren’s strategy is to continue to look for strong leaders who share the company’s HI-ACT principles and want to share them with like-minded individuals. “I believe that we have only scratched the surface here in the U.S.,” adds Daren. “I think we’ll see quadruple growth over the next few years from the projections we set two years ago — and we’ve exceeded — and where we’re headed over the next four years.”

PURE will keep the momentum going continuing their commitment to deliver Whole Health with high-quality products for physical health, opportunity for financial health, relationships for personal health and opportunities for social impact for philanthropic health.

Meet Lynn and Sherry Pippen, PURE IBOs

Lynn and Sherry Pippen joined PURE in 2015 after Lynn was approached by a dear friend whom he had served with in the military.

Lynn is a Platinum Director with PURE and a retired U.S. Army Colonel. Sherry is a general dentist and owner of Oak Lane Family Dental Clinic in Mississippi.

The Pippen’s weren’t interested in taking on another business venture, but they saw value in the PURE business. They chose to invest in the company should they decide later to pursue a business.

Physical fitness has always been a big part of their lives. Lynn maintained a high level of physical activity during his tenure in the Army and continued this into his retirement and second career.  However, he had compounded problems with his shoulder, back and knees due to various athletic- and service-related injuries. With the advice of his orthopedic physician, he gave up his love for long-distance running.

Lynn shared his health issues with his new PURE family who then shared the products with him. Lynn started taking the products and subsequently changed his lifestyle. He was able to return to jogging after being told that he would never run again. He beat the odds and ended up competing in eight half marathons and two half ironman triathlons.

Sherry and Lynn have both seen spikes in their energy levels. They “turned back the clock” in many ways. With their confidence in products by PURE, they began sharing them with others, through they were not yet consistent with building their business. They came to value and admire the leadership in their upline who encouraged them to attend a PURE event in Dallas, Texas in October 2017.  After meeting the leaders face-to-face and experiencing the sheer “class” of the company, they decided to get serious about their PURE business.

Lynn says, “Our story isn’t a fast-paced, knock-your-socks-off story of growth straight to the top, but Sherry and I love and believe in PURE.  Our advice to IBOs is to remember the value in what PURE offers and to be resilient in the quest for your business goals.  Latch on to your leadership team and allow them to guide you to victory.  Many say that we’re in the health and wellness industry, but Sherry and I would argue that we’re in the business of improving lives.  As long as that continues to be our goal, rank advancements will come. Above all, our prayer is that people will see us as a light for our savior, Jesus Christ, and a beacon of hope for their health and financial needs.  PURE offers us a chance to share compassion with the masses as we’ve never had before.”

Lynn’s favorite products are GoYin and Organic Sulfur; Sherry likes Metabolic ONE.

Don’t just make resolutions, achieve them

Welcome to 2019! Are you one of the many Americans who make New Year’s resolutions? Are you successful at achieving them? Research says that more than 50% of people who make New Year’s resolutions generally keep them for the first two weeks, but by the end of the first month that number declines and at six months many people have completely abandoned those resolutions.

Any guesses as to what the number-one New Year’s resolution was in 2018? Losing weight topped the list. How many of you agree and even have it on the top of your resolution list for 2019? I know it has frequently topped my list. Do you wonder how and if you can succeed with your resolution? You can, and I’ll explain.

Dieting versus healthy eating

Losing weight can feel like a never-ending cycle. Sometimes it seems like you try every “diet” plan and workout on the market, but they turn out to be failures. There is a difference between healthy eating and dieting. Dieting makes you hungry. Diets are temporary and often unrealistic.

A philosophy of ours at PURE, called Cleanse, Balance, Build, Focus, teaches that when you give the body what it needs, it will be able to do what it was created to do. In other words, if you feed your body health and wellness, it will provide health and wellness in return. If you feed the body garbage, well, that’s what will come out.

Cleanse, Balance, Build and Focus with CORE4

Begin with a strong foundation. The products in CORE4 help set the stage for optimal wellness. Start by cleansing your body of internal and environmental toxins. Next balance your mood and stress levels. Then, build key nutrients and provide focus and mental well-being.

  • Cleanse your body with HealthTrim® Cleanse. Our world is swarming with toxins. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. And, they’re not just physical. We have mental toxins, too. Check out PURE’s Detox Program below.
  • Balance your body with GoYin. Every system in the body strives to maintain status quo. When something is out of balance, our bodies will do what’s necessary to get that balance back. This isn’t just about physical balance, but emotional, mental and spiritual balance, too.
  • Build your body with Daily Build. We must provide our body with the basic nutrients needed to be strong and healthy. Also, one size NEVER fits all. You must find and give your body what it needs to be healthy.
  • Focus with ENERGY. You are doing this for you; not for someone else. You must get healthy for you, and you can do this when you focus.

PURE Detox Program

A way to jump-start the cleanse/detoxification process is to start with the Detox program and then you go into CORE4. Or, if you started with the CORE4 and you are ready to take your detoxing a step further then we recommend participating in PURE’s Detox program. Successful weight loss consists of healthy eating and regular physical activity. Jump-start your journey with a combination of herbs and botanicals that help facilitate the removal of toxins from the body.

Begin with a 7-day detox, or if you desire a deeper detox, continue with the 28-day program for a full body reset. Once you see the difference it makes, you’ll be hooked. This program works because you’re feeding your body plant-based, whole food nutrition. You are eating and creating sustainable habits. You will experience life-changing results

Join Team28 with people who have made the same resolutions as you. Read success stories and frequently asked questions, find delicious, detox-friendly recipes and more. Submit before and after photos to win prizes.

It’s time to get your health back on track and support your weight loss journey. In just one week, you’ll remove harmful toxins, experience better digestion, have more energy, improve your mental clarity, have fewer sugar cravings and see a reduction in body fat.*

This is your year. It’s your time not just to lose the weight, but to become the healthy person you were created to be. Use PURE’s philosophy combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise to lose weight and keep it off. Make that your resolution for 2019.

Weight loss results may vary based on individual users. Products by PURE are designed to be used in conjunction with a sensible diet and regular exercise. Persons interested in using products by PURE or programs to maintain healthy weight should consult with their health care provider prior to beginning any new nutrition and exercise program.

In the fast lane with Gray Gaulding

Gray Gaulding, a professional race car driver and PURE Independent Business Owner (IBO) takes his nutrition seriously. You could say he puts it in the driver’s seat.

At the age of 20, Gray is one of the youngest NASCAR** drivers in the field. He combines his love of racing with entrepreneurship, as he started using products by PURE in August 2018 and hasn’t turned back. He represents the PURE brand both on and off the track each week through the Number 08 Chevrolet team. He will do so for the entire Xfinity season and select Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races throughout 2019, debuting at the Daytona 300 next February.

Gray knows the importance of nutrition and hydration to help him perform at his peak. Racing for hours inside his car, which can get very hot, requires a lot of liquids before race time. On top of that, he’s wearing gloves, a helmet and a leather jacket. Gray takes GPS Hydrate to keep those vital fluids, electrolytes and nutrients flowing, a product that also helps him focus and ultimately drive faster.*

Along with the mental aspect of driving a race car, it requires physical strength, too. When you wrestle a car around a track at high speeds, you need focus. There are other cars going just as fast right next to you and things can happen very quickly. To help him withstand these conditions, he puts himself through intense physical training. The mental strength to focus on everything in his car and on the track at the same time is vital to his performance.

“I start off each day with a shot of GoYin in the morning to give me the daily nutrients I need and to get my mind and body balanced before I get started,” he said. “I enjoy the 360 Complete Shake after a nice workout in the evenings. It’s a great product to provide me with protein after breaking down my muscles from intense workouts. But the best part is that the shakes taste amazing!”

In addition to GPS Hydrate, GoYin and 360 Complete Shake, Gray also consumes ENERGY and the entire GPS product line.

Daren Hogge, PURE CEO, shared, “We are thrilled to have Gray join the PURE family as an IBO. It is an amazing opportunity to support such a great young man developing his businesses both on and off the track. Our partnership with Gray will focus on our entire line of nutritional supplements, specifically Gray’s favorite GPS performance products, ENERGY and GoYin superfruit juice.”

Ask the Expert answers your product questions

At PURE: People United Reaching Everyone, we have an expert team that is dedicated to answering your product and nutrition questions.

Here are the most popular questions from the previous few weeks. You might find a topic related to a question you have.

Q: Which products do not contain stevia?
A: All capsules, GoYin and all superfruit juices do not contain stevia. Ingredients in products by PURE can be found on each product label.

Q: Does Probiotic need to be refrigerated?
A: No, it is not necessary to refrigerate Probiotic.  The probiotic strains in Probiotic remain shelf stable and active without refrigeration.

Q: Is it okay to consume both HealthTrim® Cleanse and Daily Detox at the same time?
A: Yes, these products can be taken together. Or you can use Daily Detox as a natural bridge between HealthTrim Cleanse cycles.

Q: I had an allergic reaction to sulfa a year ago. Does this mean I will have a reaction to Organic Sulfur?
A: Sulfa is a type of pharmaceutical drug that contains sulfonamides. Sulfonamides are compounds that contain nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and the sulfur they take their name from. Sulfur is a chemical that is extremely small and unlikely to cause allergic reactions on its own, unlike sulfonamides. MSM has been used as a dietary supplement for years with no reports of intolerance or allergic reaction.

Q: Does PURE have a product to help with unhealthy gums?
A: Unhealthy gums may be the result of a microbial infection or a lack of vitamins. We suggest taking Silver every day and taking Daily Build for nutritive support. Please note that products by PURE are nutritional supplements and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.*

Q: The labels on Goji, GoYin, Mangosteen and Noni state they contain sugar; however, the product information says they contain no sugar.
A: Superfruits naturally contain sugar which is what you see on the label; however, these products contain no added sugars.

Q: It was suggested that consumption of Probiotic be stopped while taking antibiotics. Why?
A: You can take Probiotic on the same day you start taking an antibiotic, but not at the same time. A quick rule of thumb is to take Probiotic two hours before or two hours after taking your antibiotic. This will give sufficient time for the antibiotic to work while not killing off the beneficial bacteria.

Q: Why doesn’t Daily Build contain iron? And, does calcium help your body retain and use iron?
A: Iron is an active oxidation reduction metal and when it’s in a complex product, it will actively react with other ingredients. This may cause the product to be unstable. Calcium will inhibit iron absorption so we don’t suggest consuming it with iron.

Q: Is there anything in GPS Hydrate that is stimulating?
A: GPS Hydrate contains adaptogens that might give someone more energy. Taking it around noon may provide enough energy to get you through the afternoon, yet not disturb your sleep.

Q: Which products contain BCAAs and how much?
A: BCAA is an abbreviation for branched chain amino acid. It includes three amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. Please check the product label for these ingredients. GPS products that contain BCAAs include GPS Rebuild (from protein sources and leucine 1838mg, isoleucine 1115mg, valine 1070mg), GPS Circulate (Leucine 500mg, Isoleucine 250mg, Valine 250mg per serving of 15g) and GPS Energize (leucine 300mg, isoleucine 150mg and valine 150mg per serving of 10g).
