Something special

I was introduced to MLM (multi-level marketing) about 10 years ago by a friend, but the company I had a look at just didn't "grab" me at all. With that company, the whole focus of the business was the marketing plan, and how you must get so many people in your downline, then you'll make this much money and so on and so forth.

Although I could clearly see that Multi-level marketing is a sound and effective business model, I just didn't seem to make it very far with that specific company. In fact, in the year I tried, I didn't make a single cent out of it. I therefore went on to other things.

But, MLM always stuck in the back of my mind...

Anyway, how I got involved with Herbalife was completely different. I started out as just a retail customer, buying some of their products to lose some weight - and boy oh boy, did I! If you've read through this blog, you would see that I've lost about 16kg in the last 6-7 months!

After getting amazing results within the first month of taking the products, I asked my sponsor to come show me what the business is all about. In one sentence, it basically comes down to helping people improve their lives, and then getting paid for it.

Just the other day, I couldn't help but smile and just feel awesome when we helped someone lose almost 5kg in two weeks - seeing the look on her face just made it all worthwhile. And the more I think about it, the more I realise that this will be what I do for the rest of my life. Help people feel awesome, and getting paid to do it.

What more could you want?

As you know, I'm in the process of expanding my business, so if you too want to get involved helping people, and getting paid for it, give me (Rudi) a call on (021) 556 4297, or my cell 079 935 8433 - or send me an email

Herbalife is just food

I think when everyone hears "Herbalife" - they immediately think "diet" and "weight loss" - that is actually not true at all. Many people take Herbalife to gain weight - in the end it comes down to this: it's just food.

So why do you lose weight if you are overweight and taking the products? Well that is simple really - when you give your body the good nutrition it needs, losing weight is one of the pleasant side effects that happens. Our bodies are really amazing machines, but in order to operate properly, you need to provide it with the best fuel you can.

This entails getting in enough soluble an insoluble fiber, good fats, enough protein and carbohydrates, water, and of course vitamins and minerals. What Herbalife simply helps with is giving you the good nutrition your body needs.

Protein - this is essential for growth and the repair of muscle and other body tissues (muscle fuel!)

Fats - a source of energy, but also important in relation to some vitamins that are fat soluble (look for the unsaturated kind instead of saturated where possible)

Carbohydrates - this is our MAIN source of energy (think colourful fruits and vegetables)

Minerals - the inorganic elements in our body, critical for normal functions (think Iron and Magnesium for example)

Vitamins - helps with the chemical processes in the body (too many to mention, but ABC comes to mind hehe)

Water - this acts as a vehicle to carry nutrients throughout the body to where it is needed

Roughage/fiber - this is essential for good digestive health (think of this as a broom that sweeps your insides clean)

Now, the nice the about the Herbalife Products is that a big chunk of your daily requirements are met :) Very convenient if you ask me!

So, who can use the products?

The answer is short - EVERYBODY! (Oh, so you want the slightly longer answer too? Well, here it is: Children, Teenagers, Adults, Golden Oldies, Expecting Mothers, Lactating Mothers, Sick people and Athletes - they can all use the products! If you are allowed to eat food, you are allowed to eat Herbalife!)

I've been on the Herbalife products EVERY DAY now for almost 7 months, without skipping a single day. I am still enjoying the products, and my body is thanking me for it every day. I feel great!

My very first passive income!!!

For those of you who don't know what passive income is, I really recommend you read "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki - passive income is income you get whether you work or not.

My ultimate goal is to get a monthly passive income enough to cover our monthly expenses, and more.

Well, today, on 15 March 2012 I made my first bit of passive income with my Herbalife business. Herbalife paid in the money directly into my bank account, based on my performance last month.

I'm already expecting a much bigger check next month, and I'm getting really excited!

The first way that you can start earning income passively with Herbalife is if you have reached at least the fixed 42% or 50% discount levels, and sign up distributors in your downline. They can then be on the 25%, 35% or 42%, and whenever they buy something for themselves, or for their customers, Herbalife will take the difference in your percentages, and pay that over to you as commission. That's between 7% and 25% you can earn in commissions!

So, last month I was still at the 42% discount level, and two of my downline distributors each bought some products at 25% - the difference, which is 17%, Herbalife paid to me as commission.

Now, since it was only two small orders, the amount wasn't that big, but it's an extremely nice feeling that I didn't have to do anything, and still got that money. Passive income should be the aim of every person, and with Herbalife it is something that you can achieve in a very short space of time.

I'm now even more fired up than ever to build my Herbalife business. So, if you are interested in earning your own passive income, call me now on 079 935 8433, or email me.

Product Review: Formula 1 Shake

If you've read through this blog a bit, you would have noticed that I've lost 16kg in 6 months, and it was all thanks to Herbalife.

The main Herbalife product (in my opinion) is the Formula 1 Meal Replacement shake. I have been taking the shakes twice a day for the last six months! And the best part is - I haven't grown tired of it!

The Herbalife Formula 1 Shake comes in the following flavours:
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Strawberry
  • Tropical
  • Cookies & Cream
At this stage of the fight, Chocolate is still by far my favourite flavour! I have also tried Vanilla, Tropical, Cookies & Cream and the Toffee Apple & Cinnamon - and they're all very tasty (the Toffee Apple & Cinnamon one is my wife's favourite now)!

The general rule is, if you want to lose weight, replace 2 of your regular meals with the Herbalife Formula 1 Shake, and if you want to maintain your weight, just have 1 per day.

What I've realised by now is that the Shake shouldn't be seen as a "diet product", but rather as "regular food" - in South Africa the Shake is classified as a food. It is packed with vitamins and minerals, and very low in calories!

The first thing I thought when I started on Herbalife was whether the shake will actually sustain me for a few hours - well, I was pleasantly surprised that it does! I can have a shake for breakfast around 8:00, and then only start feeling peckish again at about 11:00 or so, which I then usually rectify with a healthy snack.

The shake gives you so much nutrition, and with so little calories! 1 shake is about 220 calories, and to think, that's you're whole meal taken care of! Now, consider guys need to take in less than about 1600-1800 calories per day to lose weight - that means you still have plenty of calories in reserve for the rest of the food you'll eat that day!

So, I said that the shake is not a Diet Product, but just regular food - so some might ask why do you lose weight when taking it? Well, the simple answer is this: "GOOD nutrition, LOW in calories". In the end, it's just good food!

How do I make my shake?

In South Africa, Parmalat makes their "Easygest" milk - we always make our shakes with 250ml of this, as it is 100% Lactose Free!

There are of course many other ways that you can prepare your shake. The best part is, it only takes a minute or two, then you know you have a healthy meal. Some people even add a teaspoon of coffee to their vanilla shake! ;)

How many servings?

A bottle of shake will roughly give you 20-25 servings. That means if you take it twice a day, it will last you about 10 to 14 days.

In the end, the Formula Shake is an awesome product, and it has been the key Herbalife product for 32 years, and are being sold in more than 90 countries.

If you want to try one, send me an email. You get a 30 day UNCONDITIONAL money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose!

Less than 80kg

I hopped on the scale again this morning, and the digits stopped at 79.6kg. My total weight loss for the last 6 months and 7 days is 15.9kg - hell, I think I deserve to give me that extra hundred grams.

My total weight loss in the last 6 months and 7 days is 16kg. 

For the very first time in my adult life, I weigh less than 80kg!!! And I've said it before - I could not have done it without Herbalife. I still take my 2 shakes on a daily basis, since I still have a few kilos to go, but I'm super confident that when my body is happy with its weight, it'll stop shedding the pounds.

Just a quick recap, here's the list of the Herbalife products I take every day:

  1. The biggest factor to my weight loss - the Formula 1 Meal Replacement Shake - remember, this isn't a DIET, but should rather be seen as good food - LOW in calories, and HIGH in nutrition!
  2. Formula 3 Personalised Protein Powder - you won't believe how important protein is in our daily diets - it feeds our muscles and cells - this just helps me to get about 20 grams of extra protein in every day. Best part, it's very low in calories!
  3. Fiber & Herb tablets - we need enough soluble fiber in out diets - this doesn't get absorbed by our bodies, but rather passes through, thus cleaning as it goes! Good stuff! Soluble Fiber is the only thing that can relieve both diarrhea and constipation. Extremely important for good digestive health!
  4. Thermogetics Herbal Tea - gym in a cup they say! You get these in nice flavours too - each cup burns up to 70 calories!
  5. Herbalife Formula 2 Multivitamins - together with the shake, I get ALL the vitamins and minerals I need every day. These you take 1 with each meal, so they're quick release.
  6. Herbalifeline - this is Herbalife's Omega 3 and 6 (fish oils) supplement - BRAIN LUBRICANT :)
  7. Rose Ox - This is a natural anti-oxidant made from Rosemary - kills off those free radicals.
  8. Herbal Complex - this one is a nice big boost in Vitamin C and Iron.
If I could make a recommendation, get at least 1-4 above - that way you'll get in some awesomely good nutrition - and remember, Herbalife isn't a DIET, but rather just good food. It is classified a food!

I'm forever grateful that I've found Herbalife, without it I would probably have kicked the bucket by the time I'm 40! I have a new lust for life, and it's just plain AWESOME!

How much discount can you get on the Herbalife Products

One of the very awesome perks of becoming a Herbalife Distributor is the very nice 25% discount every single person gets on the products when joining.

If you regularly buy Herbalife products, then the money you're going to save by joining will quickly cover the small joining fee, and after that it's just score score score!

There are, however, several levels of discount one can get on the products:
  • 25% - this is where everyone starts
  • 35% - once you reach this level, you're there PERMANENTLY!
  • 42% - a nice level for those wanting to do the business
  • 50% - the final discount level you get. This means you make 100% profit when selling the products!
Now, obviously the easiest one to get is the 25% level. All you have to do is sign up as a Herbalife Distributor, and voila, you now qualify for 25% discount for life! (Note, there are no targets or certain amount of sales that you must get to retain your discount - it's really that simple!)

Getting to 35% will cost you a few Rands, but if you have a few customers (or decide to buy your products a few months in advance), then you'll pretty much get to this level automatically!

42% and 50% are really for people wanting to do Herbalife as a business. Now me, I've just reached the 50% level, and it took about 6 months to do so, but I worked hard at it, and it's a great achievement - this is the first real milestone for every Herbalife Distributor active in the business. It's basically where your Herbalife career starts.

As I carry on with my business, I'll make sure to keep you all posted! For now, if you want to join Herbalife, either for the discount, or to do it as a business, feel free to give me (Rudi van der Walt) a call on 022 461 2101, or email me by clicking here.
