Catalina came to the United States from El Salvador 18 years ago. In the beginning she had 3 jobs—waitress, bank teller, and janitor. She was working very hard and sleeping just a few hours a day. She felt like the “walking dead,” and never seemed to have enough time to spend with her husband and two children. Her goal of achieving the American Dream had turned into a nightmare.
One day, she stood in front of a mirror and took a good look at herself. She realized that she was not living the life she had envisioned, and she felt very uncomfortable, not because her jobs were bad, but because she knew she could do better. There was more for her to achieve.

Attendees of the Youngevity Convention in Ontario, California got a peak at many new products that are being developed and readied for sale. Some of those items are now available for sale, and others are “coming soon.” To help you get ready for the latest entries into the amazing Youngevity line, here are the slides CEO Steve Wallach used to discuss the new products in his convention presentation. We’ve also added additional notes to provide more information.
Q&A with Sunshine Briskie – Director, Be The Change Foundation
When Youngevity Be The Change Foundation was established, not many people realized the impact that it would have in a little over a year. It began as doorway for all Youngevity members to give back and help the community should the need arise. Now, Be The Change is making a huge impact in Nicaragua. We caught up with the Foundation Director Lisa “Sunshine” Briskie to find out.
The surging popularity of nutritional supplementation means that verification of product quality is vitally important. Natural products do not receive the same regulation as prescription or over-the-counter drugs, and this fact raises concerns in the minds of many consumers. Youngevity has always been a leader in product purity, but now the company has adopted 3rd party certification.
An excerpt from one of the most popular workshops presented at the “Let’s Get Loud” Convention in Ontario, California.
“I’m not here today to smile and make you feel good. I’m here to say there’s something called “truth” and sometimes the truth is a serious conversation. I’m here to get real with you, and sometimes tough love is the only way to get results.
The Youngevity compensation plan is already amazing, but now there’s a new revenue stream available—income from Energy! Thanks to a partnership with Energy Professionals, distributors can now tap into a $500 billion industry and help people take control of their energy costs and Go Green to help save the planet. When you help people sign up with Energy Professionals, a portion of their regular household energy bills will be paid to you as additional income! These earnings, plus bonuses resulting from other Youngevity products they may purchase, will boost your total monthly BV.
“Whenever I get home from school, I hear my mom and dad talking about Youngevity and that’s how I know a ton about this!”
With that simple acknowledgement, Luke Anderson of Orem, Utah helps us understand why he is so comfortable reeling off his list of favorite Youngevity products and why his body needs them.
In an effort to preserve accuracy and fairness when it comes to the marketing and sales of Youngevity products on the internet, the company has announced a new policy that will take effect on May 1, 2015. Beginning on that date all non-Youngevity created or maintained websites must use a Youngevity replicated shopping cart such as “my90forlife.com” or “buyygy.com.”

Workshops are a simple and fun way to build your Youngevity business. A Youngevity workshop is simply about sharing stories—your story, the company's story, stories about your favorite products. There’s no need for fancy marketing pieces; you have everything you need when you speak from your heart.
Your goal is to share the mission of Youngevity, which is VITALITY, ABUNDANCE and PROSPERITY!
18-1/2 years ago, Todd Smith became a distributor in an industry he had never heard of before and started doing things he’d never done before, like taking supplements and speaking in front of crowds. His “why” was pretty simple. His newborn triplet girls were two weeks old and he had to put food on the table and diapers on those babies.
Shortly thereafter, Blake Graham, who had listened to Dr. Joel Wallach’s tape and was intrigued with his nutritional message, ran into Todd at an early Youngevity meeting. Blake and Todd had been roommates in college. Both men were excited about the mission and potential of the new company and decided to build a business together.
Alma Rosa Lopez was born in Coahuayana, Michoacán, a town in southern Mexico. She is one of eight children. Her parents worked in the fields and could not read or write. At age 17, Alma came to the U.S. looking for a better way of life. On her very first day in the country she met her future husband, Roberto. They now have two daughters and a son.
For 30 years Alma worked in a sewing factory until the company closed. She now understands that her unemployment was part of God’s plan, and something much better was waiting around the corner.
The Pulleys have been married 32 years and live in Wendell, North Carolina, but they spend most of their time at their home in Ocean Isle Beach, babysitting a granddaughter and continuing to build their business. Frankie served 15 years in the US Army National Guard and 17 years on Raleigh’s Police Department. Teresa graduated in Radiography and worked for Glaxo Pharmaceuticals. Tired of her long commute, she left Glaxo and opened a gift basket and gourmet shop.
Malina is from Hawaii and the mother of five beautiful girls. She became familiar with Youngevity by listening to Dr. Wallach on the Alex Jones Radio Show. She quickly recognized the wisdom and truth of his message and immediately ordered the 90 For Life products.
Malina took the products for two years before she started building her business. “I was sharing the products with my friends,” she says, “and basically ‘doing the business’ without doing the business.
Question: I hear as a young boy you dreamed of becoming a network marketing executive. Is that right?
Answer: Not hardly! My twin brother and I were born and raised to be doctors. At least that was my mother’s game plan. But I bought into that dream and was a pre-med major in college. I was so enamored and focused on the idea of becoming a doctor, but I didn’t realize for several years that the profession had nothing to do with what I thought it was.
