Synergy WorldWide


5 New Pearl Executives in June!

Monday, July 25, 2016

In the fourth consecutive month of executive pin title advancements, five Synergy Korea Team Members became Pearl Executives and are already eagerly working toward the Emerald Executive title. Each of these five Team Members has a unique story and skillset that makes them highly valued at Synergy WorldWide.

Get to know more about our newest executives:

Chan Woo Kim, Pearl Executive

Before joining Synergy, Chan Woo was a successful network marketer for a company that altogether failed over time. Though his business came to a screeching halt, he still believed in the network marketing vision. When he discovered Synergy, he loved everything about the company, including Korea’s Eagles System and his dedicated sponsor.

“Pearl Executive is just the beginning,” Chan Woo said. “I know I can do so much with the Eagles System. I will be a Synergy leader who is modest, earnest, and successful.”

Joon Seok Jang, Pearl Executive

Joon Seok came to Synergy with a great deal of network marketing experience under his belt. He was a top leader for another company, but was impressed by Synergy WorldWide’s vision. He left the company he was with excited about Synergy’s future and what he could contribute to it. Joon Seok is tackling his goals and thrilled to be a long-term part of Synergy.

Hyun Sook Lee, Pearl Executive

Hyun Sook is a highly successful insurance agent that has no trouble bringing in sales; however, the rewards she is reaping from her part-time Synergy business are encouraging her to invest more and more time away from the insurance office.

Always emphasizing the importance of teamwork, Hyun Sook said, “Without team work, I couldn’t be an executive. I achieved this title through the support of many people. I know I have to help them just like they’ve helped me.”

Seung Kyu Shin, Pearl Executive

Seung Kyu was working for his family’s engineering business when he realized the network marketing opportunity was too great to pass up. His first network marketing venture failed, but he did not give up. He wanted to find a company that would make his dreams come true.

“I met my personal sponsor through Synergy and she gave me a second chance,” Seung Kyu said. “Many thanks to Yun Tae Hwang who developed the Eagles System and to my sponsor Young Ok Park. Because of what they’ve done for me, I will continue to succeed and become a great leader.”

Young Soon Park, Pearl Executive

Young Soon was a top network marketing leader for a company in Korea until one day the company closed its Korea office. Eight years of hard work disappeared in one day. After meeting Yun Tae Hwang, Young Soon joined Synergy. Following the Eagles System and counsel from Yun Tae, Young Soon’s business grew quickly. She’s grateful that her network marketing path has led her to where she is now.

“I’d like to thank my family for supporting me, and I would like to thank Yun Tae for always helping me,” she said. “I will give the same support to my partners.”

Synergy Sponsored IAM Cycling Excels in Le Tour de France

Monday, July 18, 2016

The world’s most famous cycling race is in the middle of its final week, and Synergy Sponsored cycling group IAM Cycling is in the thick of competition.

Competing in the oldest and most prestigious cycling competition in the world, IAM Cycling is putting a world class effort into each grueling stage. Most recently, IAM Cycling’s Jarlinson Pantano won 1st place in Stage 15, while Jérôme Coppel took 4th place in Stage 13, and Stef Clement took 4th place in Stage 12. These Synergy sponsored riders are definitely making a name for themselves in the competition! Click here to stay updated on each stage and check the current ranking of all the competitors and teams.

This is IAM Cycling’s third time competing in the Tour de France. Over the course of three weeks, athletes endure a constant battle of mental and physical fatigue, changing weather and elements, drastic changes in elevation, as well as the logistical issues of crowding spectators and coordinating caravans and team cars.

Each stage of the race comes with its own set of challenges. In stage 9, IAM Cycling’s Leigh Howard found himself in a position that no one wants to be in—nearly left behind. After stopping to replace both wheels and eventually changing bikes, Howard was in danger of being left in no man’s land and was forced to chase down the group on the descent. To do this, Howard pushed himself to the limit and topped out his speedometer at 122.7 kilometers per hour (75 miles per hour).

The Tour de France is a world class example of peak athletic competition. We are honored to know that IAM Cycling athletes are relying on Synergy products to push them through their difficult journey and hope everyone shows them their support as they push through to the last race day on July 24.

3 Reasons your Business Needs Instagram

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Aside from being one of the fasting growing social media networks in the world, Instagram is a highly influential marketing tool for big businesses, small businesses, non-profits, and individuals all over the world. About 85 percent of top brands are using Instagram, proving that the network is both effective and here to stay.

Already have an Instagram account? Find us and follow us @synergyworldwide

We’ll be doing plenty of giveaways in the near future through our Instagram account, but you need to 1) have an Instagram account and 2) follow @synergyworldwide to win!

Don’t have an Instagram account? For your Synergy business, Instagram could be your best friend, and here’s why:

 #1. Networking

It may be hard to believe, but there is more to Instagram than millions of pet, baby, food, and nature photos. Like all other social networks, Instagram was created to bring people together. The connections you find through Instagram could result in new customers and business partners. Oh, and Instagram is connected to every other social network, so if you post to Instagram, you can at the same time post the same content to all of your other social media accounts.

How to network: As you follow other people on Instagram, like their photos, and comment on their photos, you will notice your followers begin to rise if you actively post new and interesting content. High-quality images that tell a story will drive engagement.

#2. Show Your Personality

Images are worth at least a thousand words. Create an Instagram account that speaks to who you are. Collectively, all of the photos should portray who you are and entice people to see more. By successfully portraying your personality and lifestyle, intermixed with photos of you in your element as a Synergy Team Member, you’ll make your business offering more relatable and personal while leaving an impression on your followers.

#3. New demographics

As a network marketer, you make special efforts to meet new people every day so that you can

introduce Synergy’s opportunities and grow your business. Instagram connects people all of the world through compelling images that, together, tell the story of a company’s or individual’s brand. By following the type of people you hope will follow you and posting relevant content that appeals to the demographics you want to reach, you can market your Synergy business subtly and tastefully. Interestingly, Instagram’s per-follower engagement rate for top brands is 58 times higher than it is on Facebook and 120 times higher than it is on Twitter. Convinced yet?

How to engage: Learn the art of hashtagging to help the right demographics find you.  Instagram posts that include at least one hashtag receive 12.6 percent more engagement than those that don’t hashtag, and posts tagged with a location receive 79 percent higher engagement. #synergyworldwide #nutrition #healthylifestyle #entrepreneur #workfromhome

We encourage you to discover the business benefits of Instagram for yourself. It’s a great way to show limitless people your healthy lifestyle and the Synergy opportunities you want share. Plus, will be doing Instagram giveaways in the coming months!

Synergy Earns 9th Consecutive Healthiest Company Award

Thursday, July 07, 2016

Interactive Health evaluates the physical health of employees in 2,000 companies throughout the United States each year. Synergy WorldWide employees, in conjunction with Nature’s Sunshine employees, are among the employees tested.

For the ninth year in a row, Interactive Health named Synergy and NSP among the Healthiest Companies in America in 2015. Only 154 of the 2,000 companies tested received this title and only one other company in Interactive Health’s history has achieved this award for nine consecutive years. 

As a wellness company that values its consumers’ health above all else, Synergy WorldWide practices what it preaches. Synergy’s corporate family is composed of individuals who are constantly evaluating and improving their health. In 2015, Synergy participated in a 12-week Fitness Challenge, an annual 5K Fun Run, a Veggie Challenge, the Walktober walking program, the annual health fair, and gym membership reimbursements. These programs keep Synergy employees active and aware of their diet choices. In addition, taking Synergy products are an integral part of employees’ daily routines and are recognized as the cornerstone of optimal health.

Healthy employees create a strong, productive workforce. Synergy WorldWide aims to set an example of health and leave a legacy in this capacity.


Paralympic Sharpshooter is Long-time Synergy Advocate

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

Every four years, international champions gather to participate in the ultimate test of athleticism and precision known to mankind—the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Like the Olympic Games, the Paralympic Games showcase the tenacity and dedication of the world’s elite Paralympic athletes. Even though these athletes endure physical impairments, they push forward to become great in their sports despite the obstacles they face.

Sonja Tobiassen is no exception. She will be competing in the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio on September 10 and 13 representing Norway in air rifle shooting.

Working as a nurse in Norway, Sonja noticed her muscles beginning to weaken in her mid-20s. At the young age of 25, she was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, an incurable disease that interferes with the production of proteins needed to form healthy muscle. Now, 20 years later, Sonja is in a wheelchair and living every day with love and gratitude.

“The little things really mean something to me,” Sonja said. “Things like friends and family and stopping to enjoy the flowers. I live a good life, an independent life, with my daughter who is 17. I’m grateful every day for a house and a car and a sport that I love.”

While in a rehabilitation center in 2010, Sonja participated in an air rifle shooting activity. One man in the room was floored by her natural aim and consistency. Curious to see if Sonja was just having a lucky day, he took her to a shooting simulator where she again proved her natural talent. Soon enough, the Norges Skytterforbund (Norwegian Shooting Association) learned of her gift and, to Sonja’s surprise, a couple years later she found herself competing in London’s 2012 Paralympics.

To prepare for her second Paralympic Games, Sonja is putting a great deal of focus into achieving her goals. Essential to her training and everyday life is being able to take special care of her health.

Like shooting, Sonja found her passion for Synergy by coincidence when Synergy products were first being introduced in Norway. Open to try any quality products that could aid in her energy levels, Sonja gave Synergy products a chance. She began taking Phytolife and Mistify, then incorporated ProArgi-9+ and e9. More recently, she has added Body Prime to her nutritional regimen. Over the years, Sonja has realized just how influential Synergy products are in her daily pursuit to maintain optimal health.

Within the next few months, Sonja will attend three training camps throughout Europe to prepare for Rio. Training has been an emotional roller coaster for Sonja leading up to this year’s Paralympics. When her muscles don’t cooperate, her performance suffers and it’s easy to become discouraged, but she does not give up.

“Our limits are in our heads,” Sonja said. “If you really want something and you work for it, it’s possible. When I got sick, I stopped working. I lost friends. I fell out of everything. Now, I travel around the word. I meet amazing people through my sport. I have a widespread family through shooting that is inclusive and caring. Shooting makes me get up in the morning.”


Revitalize Your Morning Routine

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

The way you start your morning impacts the quality of your day. If you start out feeling stressed and anxious rather than rejuvenated, it may be a sign that you need to update your morning routine. Finding a routine that works for you can provide the boost you need to conquer the day ahead.

Follow these quick tips to make the most out of your mornings:

Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Eating a good breakfast in the morning is essential to a healthy morning routine. For a perfectly balanced and delicious breakfast on-the-go, mix three scoops of SLMsmart Health Shake into 10 oz. of milk or water. When you skip breakfast, your body reacts by conserving energy and slowing down your metabolism which causes you to have less energy throughout the day. Each person has different caloric needs, but it is important to eat something when starting out your day. Good examples of healthy breakfast items are oatmeal with cinnamon, yogurt with berries, or whole grain toast and fruit.

Start the Day with Exercise

First things first. Before beginning your morning exercise routine, rev up with ProArgi-9+ or e9. And remember, you don’t have to go for a 5-mile run every morning to boost your energy levels. Start the morning with 20 minutes of yoga or take a quick walk around your neighborhood is all your body needs to re-energize upon waking from a good night’s sleep. Yoga is especially beneficial because it gets your heart rate up while simultaneously improving your flexibility, posture, balance, muscle tone, and endurance. Yoga is accessible to everyone, and with various levels of difficulty, everyone can find a yoga routine that works for them.

Read or Write

Before the busy rush of your day begins, sit down for a few minutes and write your thoughts and goals in a journal. Journal writing can help unload some of your stresses and ease your mind. Writing for just 10 minutes in the morning can help you focus on yourself, create self-awareness, and give you the opportunity to think about how you can best capitalize on your day.

If you don’t feel like writing, take a few minutes to read the news or a few pages of a good book. Immerse yourself in the words of others and enjoy this peaceful time alone to jump-start your brain before you start your day.

Follow a Schedule

Following a morning schedule can help you maintain organization and focus. Perhaps you start with a quick walk outside, then take a shower and get ready, followed by a healthy breakfast before leaving to work. The important thing about a routine isn’t necessarily the order in which you do things, but rather defining and keeping that order to streamline your mornings and start the day with productive habits.
