Hi Sunshiners!

We’re off tomorrow morning for an overnight in Baltimore. Expenses paid by the corporation because it’s a Board of Directors meeting. There just happens to be a Macaroni Grill on the way there and that’s the spot for the official meeting. Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning we’ll be having some think tank projects in a few preserves in the area where we are staying. On Saturday evening we’ll be down at the Harbor area.

We’ll return home to begin some serious planning for our TAC cruise with NSP. Holland America ships are certainly an amazing thing to see on water. We are looking forward to some time with the Allred’s (our sponsors) and Nathan and Kelley Howlett (3rd level managers). We all requested to be at the same table. A 10-day Baltic Sea cruise sounds so far away. With all the difference in culture and language it will seem like we’re gone a lot longer.

We have some new distributors that are considering joining us at NSP’s National Convention which is a homecoming to Salt Lake City. You can buy into it if you didn’t earn it. The company offices and manufacturing plant is nearby. We expect to have a great time in the Grand America hotel with lots of workshops and training on their wonderful products.

Below you will see those who have qualified for free hotel, meals and workshops.

Sunshine Blessings to Each of You!

NSP News

There’s a to check on items that are going to be discontinued or reformulated.

In June, they will run out of the "old" Cardio Assurance and begin shipping the "new" formulation. They will no longer be selling the Body Gem and PDA that goes with it. Supplies are expected to run out in June also.

NSP Product Focus

It’s the time of year that people are looking for relief from allergies. Pollen has been a little late here in Virginia with our unusually cool weather. NSP has great products to recommend to people who suffer from allergies. Here’s some of them with links to more information on our website:

Sharing Sunshine Tips – What’s Working for You?

Have you noticed that NSP has sample packs of some of the popular products? In your price list they are under the supplements/probiotics/enzymes/amino acids section on page 5 of the current Master Price List. We used to sell them at the store. Some people may prefer to buy a sample or you may want to give samples to encourage orders.

One thing to keep in mind is to get samples of a product that people will notice a difference with only one dose. Like Stomach Comfort for acid reflux ….. or NutriCalm is a great one. The Everflex Pain Cream is excellent stuff and works quickly. If somebody has a problem with bloating and gas, Food Enzymes would be a good one to pass out.

They’re going to try to sell you a complete course …. but you can pick up a lot of ideas just by listening to this freebie. New information is always good to boost your business building ideas.

Who’s Going to Convention?

Qualifications are over! These is the Sunshine Family that has earned their way. We are so looking forward to getting to see you!

We will be there!

Nathan and Kelley Howlett (3rd Level Managers)

Robin and Steve Snelgrove (1st Level Manager)

Dianne Frase and Virginia Franks (1st and 2nd Level Managers)

Edward Young (1st Level Manager)

Christina Tarman (1st Level Manager) earned meetings only for two at a value of $500 so she’ll be paying the difference of $350 and joining us alone for her first convention. It’s always exciting to have the first-timers because there’s so much excitement about your first NSP convention. Mine was in Seattle, WA, and Randal was still in the corporate world, so I went alone and had a delightful roommate and a grand convention.

News Within The Family

JOHN AND ROXANNE HOWLETT had their baby boy! I bet mom and dad are guzzling Thai-Go for energy these days! 🙂 Here’s the facts:
Matthew Aldan Howlett
AKA HerbalBaby
Born: Friday, May 6 at 4:01 PM
Weight: 7 lb, 6oz
Length: 20.5"

Here’s some photos. What a sweetie!

CHRISTINA TARMAN had a 622 QV order from a recent member. That girl definitely qualifed as one of Christina’s Achievers. The member had emailed her about quantity discounts on Thai-Go. The girl was going to be spending the summer in Africa with AIDS children and wanted to order a few bottles of Thai-Go to go. Since she was already buying at Direct Cost, Christina told her about the rebates she can get by ordering different levels of QV. She went so far as to mention that doing over 600 would allow her to get 4 bottles free because of the rebate of 18%. Well, guess what? She ordered $622. I could feel Christina jumping up and down as I read her email. Great job giving accurate and encouraging information! That girl is going to feel really healthy during her time in Africa.

JENNIFER VALENTINE is one of our new distributors and she finished her first month in 3rd place of the top five distributors. She’s in Wisconsin and is specializing in fitness and weight loss. In addition to her My NSP site, she has a domain site and does a newsletter to encourage a group of folks wanting to get healthy. She’s been doing a lot of promoting and is learning a lot about NSP products. She’s been listening to the CDs and reading the booklets from the Untold Truth Seminar and sharing information with others. She’s a real go-getter and expects to be manager by next month.
