Faces of fitness

Meet PURE IBOs Matt and Mallory Meredith. This athletic couple are on the move participating in community cycling and running events and building their PURE business.

Matt works full time and competes in multiple races a year, while Mallory also races, coaches cross country and track and field and works at a local running store. Eating healthy is important to them as is the spiritual, mental and physical health of their family.

Matt ran the Dallas marathon in December 2017, finishing 3:05:05. While being so close to qualifying for the Boston Marathon he went ahead and ran the New Orleans marathon in March of 2018, finishing 3:05:45, missing the mark again. He felt like he was lacking energy. Along with a couple of other red flags, he decided to get micronutrient blood testing done which showed major nutrient deficiencies. Being a healthy eater, this was very disconcerting. His goal is to qualify for the Boston Marathon, but with these numbers, he wasn’t sure he ever would. To qualify, athletes must meet time standards which correspond to age and gender.

Enter PURE! When Matt makes up his mind to do something, he’s all in and it was no different when he joined PURE.

IBOs Whitney and Jason Johns shared the opportunity to the Meredith’s in July 2018.  After taking the products, Matt started achieving new personal records in his races. He ran the Houston marathon in January this year, finishing 2:54:51, a 10:14 decrease in his personal best. What’s even more spectacular is that he qualified for the Boston Marathon which he will run with Mallory in April 2020. He attributes his success to products by PURE. Following the Houston marathon, a six-month follow up micronutrient blood test showed zero deficiencies. Now Matt is not only chasing his dreams, he is running them down!

Matt and Mallory also enjoy helping others realize the importance of exercise and making healthy choices. Matt’s advice for someone thinking about joining PURE is to, “Go all in! Flood your body with the products, feel the difference it makes and then set a goal and continue to share no matter what. Steady, consistent action and inviting people to learn about health is what will continue to grow the business.”

The Meredith’s have reached the rank of Platinum Director. They are both driven to sign others up and help them achieve their dreams, and they are grateful for the wonderful people they have met through PURE.

Asked if he could have any super power, Matt said he would like to be Superman® so he could help others during critical times. It sounds like he already has all the superpowers!

Matt works his PURE business part-time and continues to provide for his family through his full-time job. Mallory is working on making PURE a full-time job. Their favorite products are GoYin, ENERGY and the GPS line. Their daughter loves GoYin, Daily Build and CalciuMK+. They live in Tyler, Texas.

Meet IBO Karidon Roundy

After staying home for two years after the birth of her first child, Karidon was ready for a change. She was looking for an opportunity that would not only benefit her health but her financial situation as well.

Friends introduced her to products by PURE and she joined the company in November 2017. She has since reached the rank of Sapphire.

“As a stay-at-home mom, I was feeling stuck in where I was at in life. I realized that something needed to change. I started taking products by PURE and experienced changes in my body, my mental state and my overall health. Sharing my journey with others is what has helped me build my business and make a financial change for me and my family. I am thankful every day for PURE and the opportunity to be home with my kids and still help the family out financially.”

Karidon’s favorite products are ENERGY, the GPS Sports Performance line, Mila and all the Superfruits. She enjoys mixing Mila in shakes, applesauce, muffins, yogurt and pancake mix. Her family’s favorite recipe is Mila pudding, made by combining Mila with chocolate almond milk and letting it sit to thicken to a pudding. She also loves mixing GPS Hydrate with ENERGY. Her favorite flavor combination is watermelon and fruit punch.

Karidon’s advice for anyone seeking the PURE opportunity, “Really dive into other people’s success stories while you’re building your own. It shows you what’s possible and how others are benefitting from the products and changing their lives. It’s inspiring!”

Karidon and her family live in Lyman, Wyoming.

 

Mom’preneurs share words of wisdom

Finding a comfortable balance between parenting, being a wife and building a business can be a juggling act at times. It takes sacrifice, resolve and lots of love, something moms are naturally good at. But, how do they do it?

There are plenty of mothers who have made a huge contribution to PURE as Independent Business Owners, all while raising a family. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we asked them how they shuffle family life with building their PURE business. Let their words inspire you and touch your heart this Mother’s Day.

Betty Blackhurst, Presidential

“PURE offers an opportunity to help moms create a legacy for their families, and it’s a great platform to help pay for college. Thanks to my mother, I was taught to be respectful, to treat people equally no matter what their background, to love people with all your heart and always have integrity. People don’t care how much you know, they care about how much you care!”

 

Mallory Meredith, Platinum Director

“My mother was a wonderful woman. She passed when I was 6, but I am told that I am 100% her! What a wonderful gift to give your children … the best parts of yourself! With PURE, I can spend more time with my daughter because of the freedom the business gives me.”

 

Joni Michaels, Blue Diamond

“Having owned my business for 32 years, the best advice I can give to the mom who is looking to start her own business is to find balance. For those of us who are business owners, parents and wives, balance is always the key to success in all three areas. I learned early on that balance takes prioritizing, that means saying yes to the things that add value and no to what doesn’t. By doing this, I have always felt “present”, whether inside my business, beside my husband or with my children.”

 

Melanie Petz, Blue Diamond

“Always remember your ‘Why’. Mine is my family. When things get tough, remember the precious blessings you’re leaving for them. My amazing mom is a two-time survivor of breast cancer and open-heart surgery. She is my hero and taught me how important it is to take care of your body. She also always made time to watch our children during conferences or when we traveled with PURE.”

 

Jenn Powell, Ruby Executive

“Some of the best advice my mom gave me is to never doubt myself. She would always say to never tell yourself no, but rather to let others tell you no. She also taught me to fall in love with taking care of yourself and to raise your children to do the same.”

 

Magen Rivers, Diamond

“You can do it! Take it one day at a time, or one hour at a time, but take action. Your family is counting on you! When I decided to treat my business like a business, it started paying me like a business. That meant I had to set priorities. Let’s face it, as a mom there’s always something to do. My mom gave me an incredible piece of advice. She said, ‘If I put a thousand stones in your front yard and told you that under one of them was a key that opened a box that held a million dollars, how many stones would you turn to find that key?’ So even though I received “no’s” those first few days, I kept going and eventually became successful!”

 

Karidon Roundy, Sapphire Executive

“Sharing my journey with others is what has helped me build my business and make a financial change for me and my family. I am thankful every day for PURE and for the opportunity to be home with my kids and still help the family out financially.”

 

Thressa Stehr, Emerald Director

“Moms, enjoy the journey. You will not experience overnight success, but it allows you and your family time and freedom. You can work this business from anywhere. Weave it into your day-to-day routine with the kids and share it with everyone you meet because what you have your hands on is a gift! Growing up I learned what not to do. Life is not easy and you have to be willing to go after what you want.”

 

Marla Watson, Ruby Director

“Moms, remember that your kids are watching everything you do. They admire your willingness to get uncomfortable and they love watching you succeed. They also see how you handle the no’s, and are learning to never quit!  Always be present when your kids are around and include them in your business. My mom always taught me that you are what you eat!  We grew up eating lots of fresh veggies that were grown in our garden, so I learned from an early age that eating plants was a key to health!”

 

Good advice, right? We want to thank all our mom’preneurs here at PURE. Each and every one of you is truly an inspiration.

Have a very Healthy and Happy Mother’s Day.

Meet IBOs Steve and Joni Michael

Before joining PURE in 2010, Steve was coaching high school football and he and and Joni were also self-employed business owners. They were raising four children and enjoying a healthy lifestyle. Life was good, except for the precious time they were losing while building their companies rather than spending it with their family.  

When IBO Jared Burnett introduced the Michaels to PURE CEO Daren Hogge, they knew right away that PURE was on an entirely different trajectory than any other company in the industry. They sensed it in PURE’s dynamic leadership and in the systems the company had in place to help people physically and financially achieve success.

“We knew that starting a PURE business would also take time, and that we were going to have to work hard. We were already short on time in our lives, so we figured we had nothing to lose,” said Joni. “We saw the success others were having with PURE and believed that if we just put our heads down and focused, we could be just as successful and ultimately put ourselves in the driver’s seat to create the time in our lives that we desperately wanted.”

Becoming part of PURE was an easy business decision for them. 

Today, Steve and Joni have reached the prestigious rank of Blue Diamond. Now that their kids have grown, they’ve switched their purpose in life to giving back to others. They believe that real leadership begins when you take the blessings you have been given and share them with others.

“Every day is a blessing. We thank God daily that we have a place here on earth and opportunities before us to make an impact on the lives placed in front of us,” said Steve. “We have withstood the challenges of marriage, raising a family and building businesses. To be at this point in our lives physically, financially and spiritually is a dream come true. We truly have a blessed life and one we are so thankful for.”

Joni’s favorite products are HealthTrim Liquid Cleanse, GoYin, Daily Build and GPS Energize. Steve loves the entire GPS Performance line and Organic Sulfur.  They live in Larchwood, Iowa.

 

Meet IBO Cozy Bixler

Cozy Bixler is a single mom of four children, ages 7-16. Since losing her late husband to cancer ten years ago, Cozy understands the importance of Whole Health for her family. She taught Pilates during the day and always prayed for a way to generate an extra income stream while also being available for her children.

In August 2018, Cozy enrolled with PURE’s 1500 pack and got busy sharing the products with others. She plugged in to the system offered by her upline, attended all PURE events, watched every training video, and consistently dialed into weekly training calls. Her diligence and hard work paid off. She earned the rank of Platinum Director in her first week, and the prestigious rank of Diamond in her fifth week!

Cozy loves every aspect of this business, and gets her family involved as well. She makes sure her children see both the health and financial benefits that PURE provides.

“The cleanse/balance/build/focus system through PURE has helped my family with focus issues, sleep issues and more,” said Cozy. “My favorite product is Organic Sulfur because of its amazing health benefits.”*

Cozy has earned several PURE Destinations trips, two of which her children attended with her. Along with these blessings, Cozy feels grateful for the new relationships she has made at PURE. She believes she could not have had the success she’s had without the help, guidance and encouragement from her team leaders and fellow IBOs.

Romans 12:12 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”

 

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.

Getting to know IBO Nancy Cayetano

PURE is transforming lives as shared in this story from PURE Independent Business Owner (IBO) Nancy Cayetano. A stay-at-home mother of two children, Nancy discovered PURE two years ago.

Prior to her joining PURE, Nancy weighed 300 pounds. She was unhappy with the way she looked and tried everything she could to avoid people, reflections, mirrors and cameras. She was tired of being lonely and was feeling trapped in a body full of toxins.

Nancy chose bariatric surgery; however, after only a year, she regained all of the weight. She felt like she was back to square one. She knew she wanted to change and that it wasn’t going to be easy. She began to eat healthier and exercising six days a week, and lost half of her body weight. But she still didn’t feel good. She went a full year only having one bowel movement a week. This prompted her to take stool softeners every day for a year and her pain became unbearable.

She went to see a stomach specialist. After a myriad of tests, she learned that her liver and kidneys were in poor condition and she was suffering from iron, vitamin K, vitamin D and vitamin B deficiency. She was baffled when her doctors told her that she had to get worse in order for them to help her.

Fast forward to Nancy’s introduction to PURE. A friend shared the products and opportunity with her and she began taking the products. Since then, she continued to find success in her weight loss efforts and now feels better than ever.* Nancy continues to exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and get adequate sleep. With help from the PURE products, her body is getting the nutrients it needs, and she enjoys improved bowel regularity. Her approach to Whole Health, which included adopting a healthier lifestyle, made all the difference in how she feels today.

Nancy has a great passion to share PURE with others. Today she is a Gold Director and has immersed herself into learning and understanding everything she can about products by PURE. She is grateful that the products have had a direct impact on her life and is proud to be a part of a company that values healthy transformation.

“I enjoy helping others live healthier lifestyles. Just listening to the success of others is motivating. I enjoy going to events and sharing my story, and through that I can help others know that there is hope. PURE truly has been life changing for my family.”

Nancy Cayetano lives with her family in Hemet, California.
