"When I started doubling my husband's
income - working only a few hours a day at home - he noticed!"
Stephanie M. was more than 100 pounds overweight
in 1993 when someone told her about Herbalife's Thermojetics® Weight-Management
Program. Although ecstatic about her enormous weight loss-within a year
she lost 124 pounds-the former high-school English teacher was a full-time
mom with three children and had no interest in starting a business. Her
friends, family and neighbors, however, had other ideas.
"Everywhere I went, people wanted to know the secret of my success."
"My Herbalife business blossomed completely from my passion to tell everybody
I met about the products' life-changing benefits," says Stephanie. Meanwhile,
Stephanie's husband, Frank, was still working 12 to 14 hours a day-on
top of a 21/2 hour commute-to support the family. "Although he lost 53
pounds on the products, he was so dubious about the business he actually
thought my first Herbalife check might bounce," she laughs. "When I started
doubling my husband's income - working only a few hours a day at home
- he noticed!"
"That's when he quit his job to work at home with me," Stephanie recalls.
"With Frank at home sharing the work, I was able to attend trainings knowing
my family was well-taken care of," says Stephanie. "I continued building
the business mostly through word of mouth-from strangers in the market
to other stay-at-home moms."
"Three-and-a-half years after I started, we made it to President's Team!"
Even with earnings up to $35,000 a month, Stephanie says "helping others
find what I found with Herbalife is still my greatest reward." "We can
meet our children's needs for college tuition-while also enjoying a more-than-comfortable
lifestyle for ourselves!"
