Bertha was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and married early at age 16. Later she moved to California. Before becoming involved with Youngevity she worked in a catering truck and now lately she has been taking care of her mother.
“That’s why I joined the company,” says Bertha. “My mother was very sick and I wanted to help her. I soon found out that Youngevity helped people achieve better health and financial freedom. I had been looking for something like this for many years, and what I learned about the company fulfilled all of my expectations.”

As a child, Fredrick’s father was in the Army, so he got a chance to travel and see the world. He grew up in small towns like Cambron-Casteau, Belgium, and Hopkinsville, KY, and also large cities like San Francisco.
Before getting involved with Youngevity, Fredrick was a charter pilot. In 2013, the company that he was working for sold the plane he was flying so he found himself without a job. He had always known about Youngevity through his mother’s dedication to the company. When his flying career took a sudden change, his mother asked if he would like to join her in the health supplement company.
Laurette is originally from New York City, where she was an actor, playwright, and improvisational comedienne. She now lives with her husband, Paul, on a ranch they call “The Prayer Farm” in the Ozark foothills of northeastern Oklahoma.
Laurette came to Youngevity through Beyond Organic with Jordan Rubin. As a published author, interviewer, and Founder of the global PraiseMoves.com Fitness Ministry, She says that Doc Wallach’s “90 for Life” message fit perfectly with her desire to empower people to achieve optimum health and fitness in spirit, soul, and body.
Angelina was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, as one of 6 sisters and 4 brothers. She grew up poor, but with a lot of sacrifice, she went to school and graduated in accounting at the age of 16. She worked as a secretary to help her parents and her oldest son was born during that time. Raising him as a single mother was a great challenge. Because she wanted only the best for him, she decided to pursue the American Dream and move to the U.S.
Lilia was born in Guadalajara, México and is the oldest of 5 children. She has two children and several successful businesses in México. What motivated her to get involved with Youngevity was a desire to help as many people as possible to achieve physical and financial health.
“It was quite a challenge at first when very few people were familiar with the products,” she says. “But that’s changing now, and Youngevity is benefitting thousands of families! I really appreciate the company’s commitment to research and what Dr. Wallach has given to us. He truly thought of us before we thought of him.
As many of you may know, the Healthy Body 90 For Life Challenge began on May 1st and propelled many to begin their journey to health and wellness. The challenge runs through August 15th and anyone is still welcome to join and begin their own health transformation (for details please visit www.youngevity.com). While Youngevity will provide you with guidance and the nutrients needed for optimal health, there are still a few other pieces that are needed for a complete health transformation. One big piece of this health transformation is your physical fitness.
Have you ever struggled trying to figure out what to say to introduce friends to Youngevity? Perhaps you’ve tried speaking someone else’s words because they sounded so good when they said them—only to fail miserably when you said them?
When Beyond Organic merged with Youngevity in June of 2014, I wasn’t familiar with all that Youngevity offered. I knew about Doc Wallach and “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie,” but I was clueless about the amazing array of products and brands we could now share with others.

Question: Recently you said, “If you want to sell a larger variety of products, narrow your focus to a smaller group of products.” Could you clarify that statement?
Answer: Yes, that sounds counter intuitive, doesn’t it? But our experience in Youngevity shows that the more we simplified the message, the more we focused on a narrow group of products, the more total products we sold, both in quantity and variety. The strategy to focus removed the confusion from the equation.
