...but she made Director on her own.
AIM Director Tiki McIntyre of New Orleans has been drinking AIM’s green barley powder since she was a little kid. “I started taking it regularly about twenty-two years ago, but my father, Patrick Ryan, originally introduced me to it as a small child. He was always into fitness and health. He was an AIM Director who made a couple of thousand dollars a month in checks and went to a bunch of conferences like the one in Alaska. We had a hardware store and bike shop. He worked his AIM business from there. If anyone bought AIM’s green barley powder out of the Alexandria area in those days, they bought it from him. All different kinds of people came to the hardware store to talk to him about it. He had a massive downline. One of the things he told me was that ‘You have to have meetings.’ Dad had meetings all the time.
“Father would say ‘no white sugar, no white rice’ and he posted a sign up with that on it at the store. That’s what he’s taught me and that’s what I’ve taught my children. He baked his own bread and ate whole grains. He finally had to quit selling AIM products because it conflicted with his insurance job. He still takes AIM BarleyLife® and AIM Herbal Fiberblend®. He is meticulous about it. He had to give his business to his wife. I didn’t inherit the business from dad, I took over my grandfather’s business and made Director on my own. “
Tiki’s grandfather, Jerry L. Ryan, signed up under her father and she still has his briefcase containing old AIM Companies magazines, lots of brochures, and pamphlets with tips on how to take barley powder and caplets. The briefcase even has an old AIM advertising kit that looks like it was printed out on a dot matrix printer. There’s also promotional material that the Member literally has to cut out pictures of the AIM Garden Trio® with scissors. Her sister and her aunt are also AIM Members.
“I’m a personal trainer and studied exercise physiology at Louisiana State University. I firmly believe that healthcare problems start with what you put in your mouth and how active you are. If a machine sits out in the field and doesn’t do anything, it gets all rusty. That’s just what happens to your body.
“I like to live like a New Orleanian. I like to eat the local foods and have a glass of wine with friends. That’s why the AIM products are so great. I drink the AIM juices and if I want to go out to dinner then I can and I know that my nutrition has been taken care of. I can enjoy life without scrimping around eating celery all the time. The standard American diet doesn’t give people enough nutrition, but with the AIM products, I don’t have to worry about it as much. I don’t have to adhere to any crazy diet plan. Juicing with the AIM products is sustainable and easy. It’s there and it’s done. If I had to do all that juicing and had to clean the juicer and the counters and deal with the rinds and stuff, I wouldn’t do it. I’m too busy. That’s why the AIM products are so great for me. My husband, my kids and I are able to maintain healthy, nutritious diets conveniently.
“I’m going to continue the family legacy by passing on AIM to my kids. My husband’s daughter is taking the AIM products. I’m going to sign her up when she goes off to school. She takes BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend and AIM Proancynol®. Proancynol really helps her with her allergies.
“My kids love BarleyLife. My two-year-old and I were at a member of my downline’s house when she saw a BarleyLife canister there. She near-hyperventilated with excitement, pointing and yelling ‘Yes!’ ‘Yes!’ All my kids love it. I put the Garden Trio powder and a little flour into a bowl and my kids play with it like pixie sticks. They eat it dry. I was at the gym and one of my clients complained about his knee and my daughter happened to be there. She said ‘if you took your BarleyLife, your knee wouldn’t hurt.’ She was three when she said that. Around our house, we don’t drink chocolate milk, we drink AIM CoCoa LeafGreens®. We don’t drink Gatorade, we drink AIM Peak Endurance®.
“Nowadays, you have to be vigilant about nutrition. In my grandfather’s time, you just had nutrition—from the garden, snap peas and carrots. Back then, they had to cook. They didn’t have McDonald’s on every corner and trans fat. They used real butter and it was fine.
“We’re working with the other moms and the school to limit the amount of sugar at birthday parties. The food they serve at school is substandard. It’s in the best interest of the schools to serve the best foods. Instead they serve fruit that’s been soaking in syrup. They give kids sugary foods and expect them to behave properly and not to crave more sugar. It’s crazy how much sugar is in the food. I could scream it from the mountaintops. My sister’s kid has ADHD and when she takes BarleyLife and cuts back on her sugar intake, it really helps.
I believe a lot of problems will go away if you have proper nutrition. I believe in AIM.”
