Boise Symposium Recap

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Last weekend, Team Members and guests gathered from all around to attend the Synergy Symposium in Boise, Idaho. These men and women were treated to a special business-building education, a panel of guest speakers, and a warm, energetic crowd.

"The enthusiasm was terrific," said Synergy Founder Dan Higginson, one of the event's guest speakers. "It was a group of great people who really are working hard to leave a legacy. You know, we talk all day at Synergy about team work and how the team mentality is the only way to really succeed. These people get it. They were there to help, encourage and learn from each other. It was great to see. It was great to be a part of the event."


SLMsmart Success Follow Up: Paul Allred

Monday, November 25, 2013

Before and Current.
Notice the same shirt being worn in both photos!
Earlier this year we published a story about a few of our fantastic Synergy corporate employees who had put the SLMsmart Weight Management System to the test. You may remember that Mr. Paul Allred (Web Marketing Manager, I.T. expert, devoted Real Salt Lake fan), at the end of the 90 day challenge, had lost 39 pounds. That remarkable transformation meant a loss of 11.9% of his starting body weight.

That may have been the end of the employee challenge, but it wasn't the end of Paul's determination or ambition. He didn't stop. He hasn't stopped. "The results are addicting," said Paul. "Seeing the fat come off and making progress is really cool. I still had more to lose, so I'm still going."

As of today, just six months after his first days of using SLMsmart, Paul is down 66 pounds total. That is 20.2% of his starting body weight!


Thoughts from Synergy's Newest Team Managers

Friday, November 22, 2013

Last month we saw three of our North American Team Members rise up in ranks to the level of Team Manager. Hitting this important milestone on the Synergy Success Track is a wonderful step and we were happy to congratulate each one of them.

Now, as we approach the holidays, the end of 2013 and the beginning of a fresh new year, we asked these new Team Managers to share a few quick thoughts on their recent rank advancement and what lies ahead. Here are their responses:

Joy & Richard Matwyshen, the Villages, FL: "Richard and I began our business with a deep passion to help people with their health. Then we got the vision that we could only reach and help the masses by building a team and becoming a true leader. I made a serious commitment in October 2012 to build a strong organization. I declared on paper and in my heart that we would make Team Manager by December 2013 and 10k a month by the end of 2014. We beat the timing of our goal to make Team Manager by two months, and now our plan is to reach Team Director by April 2014 or before.
We also took the promotional challenges set in place by the company for 2013 very, very seriously. We never once said: 'That’s too big, there isn't enough time, we can’t possible make it, there’s no way,' or any of those other negative statements people defeat themselves with. Instead we always said: 'Okay, we can do this!'"
Sandra & Ed Kerner, Brown City, MI: "This is just the beginning. We love working with people and helping them change their lives. We are excited. We will be even more excited when we advance again."

Roger & Stefanie Hunt, Pleasant Grove, UT: "My focus for the coming year is to make myself increasingly effective and to help as many people as I can to find the same satisfaction and success that I've been fortunate enough to find.

I'm very happy. I couldn't have done it without my wife. We're partners in this. It's been great."

7 Questions for Team Director Lee Edwards

Friday, November 15, 2013

After his most recent rank advancement, Lee Edwards has proven to be a Team Member with a fire burning inside of him. This year we've seen him rise up in ranks, retire from a long career of professional plumbing, reach his goal of attending Leadership Academy, add points to his Top 50 Challenge Totals and win prizes along the way. So, as we come close to the end of 2013, we sent Lee an email containing seven important question. Here is his reply:

1. In May you became Team Manager, and now in just five short months you've advanced to the rank of Team Director. What advice would you give to others trying to create the same kind of momentum?

It has been an amazing year. The simplicity of this work is work! You need to go out and sponsor and find a system to help teach, train and retain those you put in. With the quality of product we have, and the support corporate gives,  Synergy Worldwide makes it very easy to bring people in! Also, I've adopted an RI training system and it has really increased my confidence to move forward at this accelerated rate.

2. Back in July you celebrated an exciting retirement, but it doesn't appear that you've adopted a lifestyle of daily-golf and afternoon-naps. What gives?

SPOTLIGHT: Dr. Jim Sandberg

Friday, November 08, 2013

Dr. Sandberg with his wife Dianne.
One of North America's two newest Team Directors, Dr. Jim Sandberg is a man who finds it easy to be passionate about Synergy WorldWide. This passion, when combined with exemplary focus and confidence, has helped him a great deal and will continue to take him far in his business. From his home outside of Los Angeles, Dr. Sandberg was kind enough to spare some time for an interview, in which we spoke about his current momentum and some of the keys to his success.

The first thing you should know about Dr. Sandberg is that he is no stranger to health, fitness, nutrition or supplements. With an undergraduate degree in nutrition and a history of working with organizations including Mr. Olympia and Muscle & Fitness Magazine, this is one doctor who knows the value of quality supplementation.
