I first saw and heard her was during Supervisor Academy in 2009 which I think I was a 1 mth old baby then.
And here… she is coming! I believe she will do a talk too when she is here?
Bea Bos’s journey in Herbalife begins more than a decade ago when she was on a ski trip and wound up sharing a dinner table with two strangers…
President’s Team members Karen and Martyn Farmer. The three talked about movies, travel and the world. In fact, Herbalife didn’t even come up once in the conversation. But at the end of the meal, the Farmers pulled out a large tablet box and took their supplements, a ritual they practiced daily in front of Bea, planting a seed that came to bear fruit by the end of her vacation.
“When the Farmers shared their weight-control testimonials with me I was so impressed that I became a customer,” she says.
But that was all Bea wanted out of Herbalife, or so she thought. She had a busy career in sales, was studying marketing at night and had no time for anything else. “Besides, I was sceptical of the opportunity,” admits Bea. “It was presented to me by a couple living in England, selling products from a U.S.-based company, whom I met on vacation in Austria!”
After losing weight, however, Bea had a change of heart. “I called Karen and Martyn and said I had seven new customers for them, and they said, “Why don’t you be a Distributor and at least get the discount for yourself?’ So I did.”
“I became a Supervisor immediately, but I didn’t think it would last.” One weekend while visiting England, the Farmers took Bea to a Success Training Seminar. “When I heard everyone’s story, I was inspired,” she says.
“I was told I had to get to the Extravaganza, and that’s when my life really changed.”
Bea came back from the Extravaganza and quit her job immediately. Three months later, she qualified for the Global Expansion Team. Three months after that, she qualified for the Millionaire Team. Less than a year later, Bea joined the President’s Team.
Fast forward to 1999. Bea is invited on a sailing trip hosted by her bank to thank their most successful customers. It was on that trip that she met Ronald, an entrepreneur in the computer industry. “If I hadn’t been so successful with Herbalife, we would have never met.”
It wasn’t long before Bea had Ronald taking the products, but he was busy running his own companies and had no interest in joining her organisation. However, after attending a Herbalife event with the company’s top achievers, Ronald finally saw the big picture.
“The Herbalife business opportunity enabled me to work in an organisation where everyone is their own boss,” says Ronald.
When Ronald and Bea joined forces, their teamwork led to even higher levels of success. “We were President’s Team members, but had no President’s Team members in our organisation until December 1999,” Ronald says, “and we decided to get to Chairman’s Club.”
So how did they do it? Ronald and Bea hosted dinner parties among other things for the most successful Distributors in their downline, and gave them individual attention and a business plan to accomplish their goals. Additionally, they told their Distributors that every Supervisor in their organisation needed to have a customer base of at least 50 from which the business could be duplicated. Their downline listened and over the last three years, the couple has helped several people achieve President’s Team status, which in turn, has helped them reach the Chairman’s Club.
“Helping people reach their goals is one of the greatest rewards of this business.” The Herbalife opportunity has also afforded Bea and Ronald many other joys. The couple are earning a comfortable living, allowing them to split their time between a home in Holland and the south of France. And the couple have plenty of time to enjoy their sailboat and other hobbies.
“Those who are able to do what they love, and love what they do for a living are the luckiest people in the world, and we are among them.”
The Herbalife business opportunity has given Bea and Ronald more time to spend with each other, and Ronald’s three children, whom the couple affectionately call, “our sixth diamond.”
“The Herbalife opportunity has given me a wonderful life, a husband and has allowed me to experience being a mother,” says Bea. Ronald, too, is equally grateful for all that Herbalife has given him. “The only mistake you can make with Herbalife is to quit!”
