Ralph Peterson of Portland, North Dakota retired from his job as a school bus driver after twenty-two years. He still owns and operates Ralph’s Sharp Shop, an outdoor power equipment sales and service business and raises delicious organic sweet corn, the kind that melts right off the cob. He spends free moments with his ten grandchildren and other members of his family. If Ralph’s life didn’t sound idyllic enough, he recently promoted to Blue Diamond Director.
His journey started painfully in 1989. Ralph had trouble walking due to the arthritis in his knees. In fact, doctors had told him that he would probably have to have them replaced one day. A friend and future sponsor, AIM Director Wendell Berg noticed this and gave Ralph an entire jar of barley grass with the caveat that Ralph would use all of it. Two weeks, later his knees stopped hurting. Twenty-five years later, Ralph still uses the same knees that he was born with.
When he’s working on his AIM business, Ralph is making and receiving phone calls or preparing and sending out information packets, datasheets, books and literature. He places the Healthy Cell Concept brochure and two books—Cleansing the Body and Colon for a Happier and Healthier You: Using Herbal Fiberblend by Teresa Schumacher and Toni Lund and the Nutrition that Works testimony book by Charlotte Thompson—in every packet he sends out.
“The cost of materials is nothing compared to the people’s lives that you are investing in. When I have the privilege of sharing AIM products with somebody, it is the highlight of my day. Helping them improve the quality of their lives spiritually, mentally and physically and then seeing them come alive again, what more could you want?”
He tells new Members to study and learn what each product does, to get in contact with their upline or someone who will help them and to attend meetings, events, teleclasses and webinars. He also recommends that people attend AIM Conferences.
Ralph says he has been blessed to attend the annual Conference nearly every year since joining AIM. He sat next to Chairman’s Club Director Ken Huxter. Hearing Ken’s story motivated Ralph.
“Everyone should attend all of the AIM Conferences and meet people and hear their stories. I think it’s one of the most important things anyone can do. You can study and learn but sitting next to other successful AIM Members and hearing how the AIM products have changed their lives really motivates you.”
“I thank God for His constant goodness to me and for providing The AIM Companies™ as a continual source of His blessing in my life. My wife, Phyllis, was a great support to me. I would not be where I am today without all her hard work. She is missed much. Thank you to my children and their families for their love and support. I’d like to thank my downline and the AIM owners and staff.
