Our Story

 

Hello, We're Sandy & Al + Shelley & Steve Abrams

Thanks for stopping by our site! I am Sandy. When we started this page were Sandy & Al Abrams alone. Now, our son, Steve and his wonderful wife, Shelley have joined forces with us to provide an even better experience for everyone who has any contact with us. ​ Steve began using the products when we first started the business in 1970 when he was still a teenager. ​ He and now Shelley are truly knowledgeable about our products and this wonderful business.

Until the Paradise, CA Camp fire, we lived in that small mountain town. ​ It really was a paradise. ​ Now we live just down the hill in Chico. Al & I enjoy classical music as well as music from the 1940s and 60s and old fashioned musicals. ​ We like theater and reading. ​ Meeting new friends is a favorite activity. ​

At the time we found Shaklee, I was a young totally exhausted mother of 5 children ages 8 to 15. ​ We were not really a sickly family, but with 7 of us, things happened. ​ I was on a first name basis with the pharmacist. I had allergies that forced me to use anti-histamines, literally every day of the year. ​ Now, for over 40 of the ensuing years, neither Al nor I have had a single prescription to cure anything and I have not needed an anti-histamine for even longer. ​ ​

Hi, this is Shelley.

Steve & I were married in 1980. Shaklee is how we met. Since then, moved to Washington in 2013 from southern California, where we grew up, met and lived the first 33 years of our marriage. We moved up here to get a "fresh start", first in Seattle for 4 years, then to Camas on the Washington/Oregon border for a year and then bought a home in May 2018 in Longview. ​ We live out of town, with open space all around us.

From long before Steve & I were married, we have always enjoyed being in the outdoors. We even spent the majority of our dating years and early marriage doing something outdoors. Then as we graduated from college and our professional careers took off, we worked many long hours, more than the normal 9-5. We became very grateful for the times we could get outside. And each time we took a trip we saw why conservation is so important. ​ For me, it was as simple as wanting to preserve what we saw - natural beauty, wildlife, and views! You don't have to wear only cotton clothes and Birkenstock for shoes to be environmentally aware. The fact is, if a lot of people do something small, it adds up to something really big. This is what Shaklee is all about. Letting each of us do something good for the environment and sharing this with others.

Another side of Shaklee are the Nutritional products. We are AARP qualified and are very active and rarely get sick. ​ Both of us used to get a few colds each year and the flu wasn't uncommon. ​ Since starting a nutritional program, we rarely get sick anymore. ​ ​ We also have a lot more energy to do the things we enjoy (like going to the mountains or the coast), especially now that both of us are retired (early).

Our Shaklee business is not just a home-based business; it is a way of life. Since 1970 the Shaklee products have always performed flawlessly for us. ​ We've seen important improvements in our family's health and well-being with the use of the food supplements, the non-toxic cleaners and our other non-toxic, health promoting products.

One of the most exciting parts of our business is being able to share a way to earn an income that meets individual & family goals, as well as providing education about natural nutrition, and green living. ​ Even if someone has only a limited amount of time to devote to their business, we can tailor an individual program just for them.

We want to connect and work with like-minded people. And with the recurring financial crises, we feel that what we have to share is more important than ever.

Whether your dream is escaping the 9-5 grind, have some extra income for adventure travel, long-term wandering, or having a Plan-B in case of loss of employment, this site will give you insight into the tools needed to make it a reality in the here-and-now instead of in your golden years when you're too old to enjoy it.

If you'd like some guidance in your desire to find freedom as an online entrepreneur, we should connect. You can learn more about working with us here. If you like what you see just fill out the form at the end and I'll be happy to take you on a guided tour to learn about the entire program.

We're also real and fairly 'normal' people, and we don't bite...so feel free to stop by and friend us on Facebook.

Thanks again for visiting our site and we hope we can help you create your ideal lifestyle of personal freedom and move your life to Freedom Lane. ​ ​ When you call, Shelley and Steve will personally connect with you to guide and help you get started. ​ Al & I will also be available for ongoing help and support. Now you have the benefit of all four of us.

 

 

My Team

One of the great things about Shaklee is that I get to work with some amazing people…my friends! They’re people from all walks of life – some used work in Corporate America, others work from home. Still others work in the public sector and do their Shaklee business on the side.

But there is a common denominator…we’re all guided some key principles:

  • WE​ do what’s right.
  • WE see the big picture.
  • WE recycle.
  • WE are coachable.
  • WE keep it real.
  • WE see beyond obstacles.
  • WE put “we” above “me.”
  • WE succeed by dedicating ourselves to the dreams of others.
  • WE love helping you become the person you were born to be. ​

My Trips

Like a lot of people, I decided to build a business with Shaklee because I love the products. It’s easy for me to share something I already love with others. Why not get paid to do it, right? ​ And once I got started, I learned that if I put in the effort, I could earn INCREDIBLE trips on top of the cash bonuses I make.

Shaklee has taken us around the world! Places like Paris, Bali, and Tuscany just to name a few. They’ve also treated us to stays in some of the most fabulous beach-side resorts in Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean. And when we travel with Shaklee, it’s always five-star. Dream destinations with experiences usually reserved for the rich and famous.

The only thing that tops going on a Shaklee trip? Bringing someone else along! Want to go with me on Shaklee’s next trip? Let's talk.
