Unless we are satisfied with where you are right now you will continue to look for the flaws. "This is it and I am satisfied" is a statement for right now in this moment. It is a wonderful feeling to know I can still reach for more. What are the things you have and what is it that you do in your life. If what you do and have in life is serving you, stick with it. If it is no longer serving you, you may want to release it or choose something different. Focusing on the flaws in life creates the feeling of you not being satisfied. Focusing on what you have and where you are and enjoying what has been created so far is much more fullfiling. If you have a feeling of what you cannot do right now ask yourself what you can do right now. Keep going after what you can do to be more satisfied.
Are you ready to take inventory of what you have and do?
Do you have the success you are looking for?
Have you done everything you would like to do?
Do you have support from the people you would like?
Are you supporting the people you like?

I know that we have.
So – whenever a team member, or we, come up against a USANA business challenge, we do some research and write down how we think the challenge can best be addressed, knowing that our findings can be of help to others.

Four simple words that, on the surface, seem like good things for all of us to do.
However, when used, or mis-used, in a certain context by you or your team, these actions can bring your business to a screeching halt.
Let’s take a closer look:
See – Obviously, before you can understand or embrace a belief or vision, you need to “see” it. That, however, is only the first, and brief, step to success. Too many people take the attitude of, “Well, I’ll enroll in USANA and then I’ll see what happens.” If you just sit there looking around, guess what will happen – nothing! You need to take action and make things happen instead of just observing others who are doing what needs to be done.
Think – Before embarking on any endeavor, one must always put some thought into it. However, you don’t want to make a career of your pensiveness. Whenever I hear someone say “I’ll think about completing the BDS eApprentice training next week”, I know what will happen next – nothing. “Thinking” about doing something means that it is not important to you, and you need to decide how it compares to other priorities in your life such as cleaning the basement and organizing your sock drawer.
Plan – Having a plan is also a good thing to do whenever approaching any undertaking involving more than a few steps. However, one runs the risk of “paralysis by analysis” when the plan, rather than the activity, becomes the focus. I have observed Associates who plan their training, then plan their autoship order, then plan their web site layout, then plan on how to gather, prioritize and approach their leads, then plan on how they will send and receive e-mails, cell phone calls, land-line calls, voice mails, call forwarding, etc., etc. Once all these various individual plans are completed, verified and reviewed again, it then becomes necessary to plan how they will all work together as a process for optimum results. In the mean time, no business building has taken place, 42 days have passed, and the Associate realizes that they didn’t plan on what needed to be done to become a Platinum PaceSetter!
Try – This is usually the real kiss of death to any hope of building a successful USANA business. You need to try something before you know if it works, right? That’s true, but in the case of being a USANA Associate, all the “trying” has already been done for you. Anyone who has read a Health & Freedom paper, the Weekly Reports, etc., knows that thousands of Associates have already been successful in building a USANA business. It works! You don’t need to “try” it, you just need to “do” it. You don’t “try” a parachute jump, you either do it, or you don’t. When someone says, “I’ll sign up as an Associate and give USANA a try.”, they are setting themselves up for failure by giving themselves permission to quit at the first obstacle or sign of resistance by anyone or anything.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with “seeing”, “thinking”, “planning” or “trying” – under the right circumstances. However, unless these activities are combined with a healthy dose of “acting” and “doing”, they are only four words.
Learn How USANA’s Matching Bonus Program Can be Worth up to $76,800.00USD
(And Potentially Much More) in Addition to Your Regular USANA Commission Earnings
by Pete Zdanis
It has been repeatedly documented that the lucrative USANA Cellular Binary Compensation Plan is among the best in network marketing since new business builders can start earning commissions quickly, while building their income to whatever level they choose over the long term.
In 2008, USANA introduced a major enhancement to its Compensation Plan – The Matching Bonus. We will provide all of the details of the Matching Bonus program to you later in this document, but we will first walk through a simple example of how powerful this compensation plan feature is….
The key to maximizing what you can earn from the Matching Bonus is becoming a Platinum PaceSetter and creating Platinum PaceSetters in your USANA business.
What is a Platinum PaceSetter?
A Platinum PaceSetter is simply a USANA Associate who has sponsored a minimum of four (4) new qualified USANA Associates within 42 days (six weeks) of their enrollment date. The only qualifications that the four new Associates must meet are to activate at least one USANA Business Center (BC) and keep that BC qualified for at least eight (8) consecutive weeks after their enrollment.
Matching Bonus Example
If you are a USANA Platinum PaceSetter, The USANA Matching Bonus Program will pay you 100% of the commissions earned by every new Platinum PaceSetter you create (sponsor), in addition to the commissions you earn through the USANA Compensation Plan, for the first 32 weeks of the new Platinum PaceSetter’s USANA career.
Let’s assume that each of the four new Associates you sponsored to become a Platinum PaceSetter go on to become Platinum PaceSetters themselves.
Let’s also assume that each of these four Platinum PaceSetters earns an average of $600.00 per week during their first 32 weeks in USANA. NOTE: Some may earn less than an average $600.00 per week, and others may earn much more during their first 32 weeks in USANA.**
In this example, the USANA Matching Bonus Program will pay you an additional $76,800.00, over and above your base USANA commissions, as follows:
. $19,200.00 for Associate “A” – (32 weeks times the average of $600.00 per week)
. $19,200.00 for Associate “B”
. $19,200.00 for Associate “C”
. $19,200.00 for Associate “D”
Some Important Points
. There is no limit to the number of Platinum PaceSetters you can earn Matching Bonus from over the course of your USANA career. The more Platinum PaceSetters you create, the more Matching Bonus you will earn.
. You do not have to be a Platinum PaceSetter to participate in the Matching Bonus Program
-PaceSetters will earn a 50% Matching Bonus for every Platinum PaceSetter they create
-Associates will earn a 25% Matching Bonus for every Platinum PaceSetter they create
$93,000 is the average yearly income for an established, full-time USANA Associate. $24,500 is the annual average of those who earned as little as one commission check each month. Total includes all earnings from the Compensation Plan, Leadership Bonus, Matching Bonus, contests, and incentives. Calculations based on earnings for fiscal year 2009. Figures should not be considered as guarantees or projections of actual earnings, which result only from consistent, successful sales efforts. To be considered in a rank’s earnings, Associates must have earned checks at a median rank for at least 20 weeks. According to results from an in-house survey taken between 2004 and 2006, the primary reason 17% of USANA independent business owners join the company is to improve their financial future. 21% of that group earns a check at least once a month. Of those whose primary reason is to earn enough to replace a full-time income, 90% have been Associates for at least one year and 57% are full-time Gold Directors and above. The number of Gold Directors and above who have maxed at least 1 Business Center during the year equals less than 1% of all Associates. Those earning as little as one check a month equal approximately 3% of all Associates. If you include all 165,710 with the title of Associate, which includes Associates not actively building a business (acting as wholesale buyers), Associates who just joined, (as little as one day), and those who are just beginning to build their customer base, the average yearly income is still $616.71 with nearly one in three earning a check. To date, USANA has more than 140 Associates who are lifetime Million Dollar Club members.
USANA Compensation Plan Quiz – All The Solutions Revealed
- by Pete Zdanis
In conversations we often have with fellow USANA Associates, we are frequently surprised (and a little disappointed) by how many people don’t have a good understanding of the potential and dynamics of the USANA compensation plan, especially the concept of exponential growth.
To help everyone get a better feel for exactly how their USANA organization can grow in various different scenarios, we have put together a USANA Compensation Plan Quiz.
We will have six different scenarios, A., B., C., D, E & F, each with slightly different assumptions on the sponsoring activity level of the Associate and their team members, but the answers differ significantly.
These are not “trick questions”. They are straightforward examples, and each one can be easily solved with a pencil, paper and grade-school arithmetic.
Here we go...
Scenario A: You personally sponsor 2 new Associates in January, and no more after that. Each new Associate in your team personally sponsors 1 New Associate the month after they sign up, and no more after that. How many Associates (excluding you) will be in your organization on December 31?
The answer to Scenario A is: 24
Scenario B: You personally sponsor 2 new Associates in January, and no more after that. Each new Associate in your team personally sponsors 2 New Associates the month after they sign up, and no more after that. How many Associates (excluding you) will be in your organization on December 31?
The answer to Scenario B is: 8,190
Scenario C: You personally sponsor 1 new Associate per month, beginning in January. Each new Associate in your team personally sponsors 1 New Associate per month, beginning the month after they sign up. How many Associates (excluding you) will be in your organization on December 31?
The answer to Scenario C is: 4,095
Scenario D: You personally sponsor 2 new Associates per month, beginning in January. Each new Associate in your team personally sponsors 1 New Associate per month, beginning the month after they sign up. How many Associates (excluding you) will be in your organization on December 31?
The answer to Scenario D is: 8,190
Scenario E: You personally sponsor 2 new Associates per month, beginning in January. Each new Associate in your team personally sponsors 2 New Associate per month, beginning the month after they sign up. How many Associates (excluding you) will be in your organization on December 31?
The answer to Scenario E is: 531,440
Scenario F: You personally sponsor 4 new Associates in January, and 2 new Associates per month each and every month after that (February through December). Each new Associate in your team personally sponsors 1 New Associate per month, beginning the month after they sign up. How many Associates (excluding you) will be in your organization on December 31?
NOTE: This scenario is identical to Scenario D with one exception – You sponsor 4 new Associates in January instead of 2 new Associates.
There is an age old saying in business - "A terrible thing happens when you fail to advertise - NOTHING!!"
Let's face it, the fact of the matter is that, unless you are sponsoring an average of one or two new Associates into your USANA business every month, you will likely never build a business which will produce any significant residual income. I don't mean to be too blunt, but, that's the reality of it.
Now, how do you sponsor new Associates? Well - first of all, you have to "advertise".
What is "advertising"? Advertising, sometimes referred to as "advertising and promotion", is very simply the process of telling people about your product, service or business. That's it. Nothing more - nothing less.
Advertising can be something as basic as telling a friend or family member about USANA, all the way to placing a full page, full color ad in a national newspaper or magazine, or a 60 second TV spot during the Super Bowl, and everything in between. It's simply a matter of making contacts or "impressions" on people. The more contacts or impressions you make, the more interested people you will find. The more interested people you find, the more Associates you will sponsor into your USANA business. The more Associates you sponsor into your USANA business, the more your USANA business will grow. It's a very, very simple formula, but one that many people fail to recognize, or fail to follow.
As mentioned above, advertising can take many shapes and forms:
o Talking with people you know ("warm market")
o Talking with people you don't know yet ("cold market")
o Business Cards
o Opportunity Cards
o Promotional Flyers
o Post Cards (such as the "Health & Freedom" postcard)
o USANA Brochures
o USANA Health & Freedom Paper
o USANA Audios
o USANA Videos
o Live Conference Calls
o Recorded Conference Calls
o Cold Calling
o Three Way Calls
o Print Classified Ads
o Direct Mailing to Leads
o E-mail messages
o E-zine advertising
o Promoting Your USANA Website
.......just to name a few.
You can make just a few impressions a day by talking with people you know or people you meet. You can make thousands of impressions a day in a localized area with a classified ad in a newspaper. You can make thousands of impressions around the world, 24 hours a day with a well-promoted website or e-mail advertising campaign.
The options are many, and range from virtually no cost to an increasing requirement of cost and effort. It's up to you to choose which methods best fit your time, talents, and financial resources.
The important thing is that you MUST always have at least one or two forms of advertising working for you all the time. You MUST always be making impressions in order to find interested people who you can convert to new USANA Associates. Be sure to test and experiment to make sure that whatever advertising you do is effective and not a waste of time and money. And ALWAYS be sure that ANY advertising you do is within USANA Policy and Procedure Compliance guidelines. You should also keep the "duplication factor" in mind - in other words, use effective advertising methods that can also be easily implemented by the new Distributors you sponsor.
As some of you have learned already, people aren't very likely to seek you out and beg you to sponsor them into USANA just because you signed a USANA Associate Application and put that unopened USANA Starter Kit on the shelf in your closet!
It's up to YOU to tell people about USANA and what you have to offer them. HOW you do it is also up to you. But, you MUST do SOMETHING. Or, guess what happens.........? That's right - a terrible thing - NOTHING!
