Orlin and I are delighted to have you in our fun and sometimes crazy Shaklee group. let me take just a few minutes to introduce ourselves to you if i haven't had the privilege of meeting you in person.
After I graduated from college with a Kindergarten - Elementary Ed degree, i taught for two years -- Orlin worked at Control Data. In 1968, we were asked to join a pastor who was opening up a mission in Lima, Peru. We were delighted to have that wonderful privilege - opening up a new church mission - for almost 4 years. We returned from Lima with 2 children and a love for helping people.
We joined Shaklee in 1981 to save money on our products. We had 6 children, (and two of them adopted from Nicaragua) with many "normal" health problems. I had a history of breast cancer for two generations on my mother's side, and was beginning to have symptoms that worried me. After seeing the difference Shaklee made in my health, I wanted it for my children also. After a visit with my sponsor in Shaklee, she assured me that all of those products could be purchased for FREE! WOW free IS PRETTY GOOD!
To this day, I have always earned enough to cover our personal use of Shaklee - and now our family has expanded to 15 grandchildren that are the delight of our lives. our 1099's every year from Shaklee are over $70,000 and Shaklee tracks our total earnings since we started and it's over a MILLION$.
But besides that - even more importantly - we have changed people's lives. Countless stories of health problems that are no longer an issue warm our hearts constantly. plus we are making a significant contribution to the environment and to people's happiness quotients, our cup truly runneth over.
