Isagenix® Millionaires Rise From Foreclosure to Paying Cash for Seven Homes
As the owner of a food storage company and several real estate properties, 71-year-old Don figured he was financially set for life when he chose to retire at age 40. Yet, the money ran out sooner than expected and he and his wife Laree found their home in foreclosure and their savings depleted. They began searching for another source of income and that’s when Isagenix® knocked on their door.
At first, Don ignored the business opportunity Isagenix offered. Though he had spent 20 years with various network marketing companies, none of them ever really generated the income he desired so he thought Isagenix would be the same thing. He may not have been interested in the business side at that time, but he was intrigued by the weight-loss opportunity.
Fortunately, his instincts paid off with the products because he lost 30 pounds* by trying the Isagenix systems. Soon, his results outweighed his skepticism about the business and he decided to see if Isagenix was the opportunity he’d been dreaming of.
“Most ground floor opportunities become basements and 99 percent of all network marketing companies go out of business in the first two years,” explains Don of Utah. “Isagenix has been the incredible exception to what I had experienced before. It’s what I’ve been searching for all my life and never found.”
Initially, Don and Laree worked long hours every day to get their business off the ground. Once their Isagenix business took off, it soared. In only eight weeks, they began earning a six-figure income.** In nine months, they were able to write a check for $210,000 to pay off their home.** In only two years, they became Isagenix millionaires.**
“Isagenix is the solution to two things people struggle with most in life, health and finances,” shares Don. “Be a lighthouse that attracts people who are looking for these things. You can also a be searchlight because there are so many people who are looking for what we have but haven’t found it yet.”
Now Don and Laree focus on providing support to their team. Their method of leadership is empowering them to become their own leaders. The strategy worked as they’ve helped to create three other Isagenix millionaires including their daughter Cindy and son-in-law Justin.
Their goal now is to help all of their team members become millionaires. Watching them succeed is even more gratifying than all the success they’ve experienced, says Don.
“We focus on helping other people believe that if we can do it, they can do it too,” explains Don. “Building belief in yourself is the biggest challenge for many people so we try to help them accomplish that.”
Don and Laree’s success has enabled them to not only save their home, but to purchase seven more with cash. It has also afforded them the time to spend with their family, which includes five daughters and 19 grandchildren. Don also enjoys being active and even won a gold medal in basketball in the Senior Games.
“We had ‘social insecurity,’ but now we have an established retirement program. We got out of debt and got our health back,” shares Don. “I’m going to live until I die. Isagenix has given me a quality of life at my age that very few people have without Isagenix.”
