"In the first 12 months I earned $80,000
- working at home and being around my two children the whole time!"
The memory still brings tears to her eyes.
Tami P. was at her job one day in 1996 when she got a call that something
was terribly wrong with her baby son. He was in the hospital with internal
bleeding. However, her employer would not let her leave work while she
was busy teaching aerobics classes.
"Although my son would turn out to be okay, I made a decision to find
a business that would allow me to work at home and be my own boss," Tami
"I answered an Herbalife business opportunity ad-and within two months,
I replaced my teaching salary of $3,000 a month by working at home."
"My first step was to use the products and develop my own testimonial,"
says Tami, a Global Expansion Team member. "I'd gained weight after the
birth of my son, and thanks to Herbalife, I lost 32 pounds in five weeks."
Tami says that as an aerobics instructor, she concentrated on retailing
the Herbalife products through advertising, talking to those in her "center
of influence" and attending "every Success Training Seminar available
"In the first 12 months I earned $80,000 - working at home and being
around my two children the whole time!"
"Although my husband, Keith, still worked days as a water-treatment
operator," recalls Tami, "he helped me every night making thousands of
flyers. Within two years, he quit his job and joined me full time in the
business. Now we both have the freedom to be with our children every day."
"Because of Herbalife, we're planning to build our BIG lake-front dream
home next year!"
