When Opportunity Knocks …

Shared by Ralph Peterson, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

I’d like to tell you about an opportunity of a lifetime. AIM International is the opportunity of a lifetime that I started taking advantage of back in 1989. It has grown and continues to grow every day. I’m so thankful that it came my way and I grabbed it. I wish you would too.

Since joining AIM, I have gone through the levels of the Member Income Plan from Wholesale Member to Preferred Mem­ber, all the way to reaching the top level of AIM’s Chairman’s Club Director last year. Again, I really am so thankful.

I never realized the opportunity that I had initially. But it has given me so many great experiences, traveling and meeting people all around the world and sharing with them as I continue to build my AIM business.

I am so blessed to have been afforded the chance to have a very nice retirement income. I’m working harder than I ever have, but it’s a great income for me to receive. I am just beyond words. What I never dreamed could happen to me has happened because of AIM. And others can experience this as well, with a little hard work and being blessed.

It’s interesting that some­­thing so incredible in my life could result from something so bad in my life. Almost 30 years ago, I had severe arthritis. Doctors told me that my knees needed to be replaced. Then a friend introduced me to a green powder—BarleyLife. And it was by taking this green powder for only two weeks that my knees quit hurting. Three decades later, I’m still carrying on because of BarleyLife, which I have shared the benefits of with people worldwide through the business op­portunity offered by AIM.

Fit is the New Thin: Cassey Shaw

Shared by Cassey Shaw, AIM Preferred Member

I am a wife, mom, business owner and recovering food addict. I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember.

In May 2018, I decided enough was enough. I focused on changing my mindset and nutrition. I counted calories and ate whole foods. I worked hard for those first two months to fight the mental battle that has always plagued me and in two months I lost 25 pounds!

At this point, I began running, and I purchased my first Garden Trio. I could have never imagined that I would fall in love with this drink so much. These products are not new to me because my in-laws, whom I’ve known for over 19 years, have been faithfully taking them. However, this is the first time I started taking AIM products.

By including my two children in my health and wellness journey, it has held me accountable. No matter what, I wanted them to grow up in a healthy home, making healthy choices, even if mommy was closet eating. Making our [Garden] Trio smoothies together has been a game changer for my kids and now my whole family enjoys smoothies multiple times a week.

Today I am down 55 pounds and use the Garden Trio regularly. When I feel bloated, need a quick meal on the go or a quick post-workout smoothie, I always reach for my power drink. As a homeschooling mama and business owner, this smoothie gives me the energy to keep up with life. I travel often and being able to pack my powders and blender not only saves me money but keeps me on track.

I never thought I would enjoy these products so much, but today I CRAVE THEM!

Cassey’s Smoothie Ingredients:
1½ cups of water
1 tsp. RediBeets
1 tsp. Just Carrots
1 tbsp. BarleyLife
1 tbsp. fit ’n fiber
2 small handfuls of mixed frozen berries
2 handfuls spinach

AIM Nutrition Changed My Life

Shared by Tina Wilkerson, AIM Director and Personal Trainer

Back in 2001, after my daughter, Jordan, was born, I felt very poorly. I had a number of health issues: fatigue, headaches, aching joints, and I was overweight. At that point in time, I wasn’t a personal trainer yet, but I began a wellness journey that would change my life for the better and allow me to help others do the same.

The Journey

I managed to go from size 14 to 2, but, honestly, I didn’t do it in a healthy way. I wish I had had the knowledge that I have now so that I wouldn’t have taxed my body as hard as I did. I would have been able to maintain my weight in a healthy way.

During my wellness journey, I got into personal training and opened my own studio. However, the stress of starting a business and raising a daughter caught up with me. I regularly worked 12-hour days, and I was getting sick a lot and taking antibiotics probably four times a year.

Discovering AIM

Six years ago, I met Star Sapphire Director Leré Robinson, who mentored me on the use of AIM products. I started on a committed regimen of the Garden Trio, FloraFood, AIMega, Composure and Renewed Balance body cream. Within three months, I was feeling completely renewed, capable and energetic.

I credit AIM nutrition with these positive changes because I didn’t do anything else that was different. As a personal trainer, I already exercised and ate well, so it was the AIM products that really changed my life.

That’s when I started telling all of my clients about AIM, recommending products not only for losing weight but for improving all kinds of body functions. Those who come to my studio are generally middle-aged woman, many of whom have chronic pain, don’t sleep well, have poor digestive function and hormonal imbalance. Many want to improve their mobility, or what I call the “feel good” factor.

In addition to the exercise component to enhance mobility, I use AIM products to improve their wellness on an intracellular level. Addressing external factors of wellness, such as exercise (mild to moderate), sufficient sleep, sun exposure, etc., and the internal factors of eating well and supplementing with AIM products has helped a lot of my clients to get stellar results. They are able to look better, move better, feel better and be better from the inside out.

AIMing for Weight Loss

Most of my clients have weight loss goals. Last year, I ran a six-week weight-loss challenge. I had them replace their highest calorie meal of the day with a ProPeas shake. The average weight loss was eight pounds.

ProPeas and fit ’n fiber are mostly used for meal re­placements, having developed a couple of recipes that include adding kale or spinach and a teaspoon of healthy oil. Almost all of my clients also use Peak Endurance for supplemental energy.

The combination of AIM products and functional exercise—movement that helps you age well—is a sustain­able, balanced approach to weight loss and wellness, which I believe is healthiest after experiencing my own health journey and 14 years as a personal trainer.
At the same time, there are definitely unhealthy, unsustainable ways to lose weight. Because of my own history, I don’t encourage extreme exercise, which is not helpful and likely harmful for your body in the long run.

As men and women age, exercise can actually become counter-productive very quickly. Exercise naturally creates inflammation in the body. And if you’re an older person, overweight, have health issues, have been on a lot of meds or you haven’t moved well in a long time, then you’re already walking around with a lot of chronic, low-grade inflammation.

Increasing inflammation with the wrong kind of exercise is only going to make matters worse. And while we’re on the subject, reducing inflammation with AIM whole-food concentrates such as BarleyLife is an ideal approach to wellness. And as for exercise, you just have to move smart.

I don’t even like to use the word exercise; I just think movement. The right kind makes everything better; the wrong kind makes everything worse. Keep moving in the right way that makes you feel better and your life better.

Everything that has transpired in the 10½ years that I’ve owned Elite Personal Training has come out of my own wellness journey, just like my use of the AIM products. I will continue to promote them in my studio because they have changed my life and have been changing the lives of my clients.

Your AIM Business Is Important

Shared by Emma Miller, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

Sometimes our goals seem to fall by the wayside. I often think it’s because we get so caught up with the urgent that we neglect the important.

Think of something you should be doing that is important. It could be exercising or losing weight. But such important things are not really urgent. And urgent, daily tasks and interruptions may be the cause of neglecting important things such as your AIM business.


We have all heard about the value of follow-up. Everybody keeps talking about how important it is, but do we believe it? And if we believe it, are we doing it? Or is the urgent causing us to neglect the important?

Sometimes the urgent might be answering a telephone call and chatting with a friend. The important might be investing some time in your AIM business because if you put off following up long enough, eventually you may not have much of a downline.

AIM Chairman’s Club Director Carolyn Kling once sent me a copy of her goal setting sheet. One objective that I found particularly helpful was, “Try to do something AIM-related every day.” Examples might be calling a downline Member, listening to a podcast, registering for a webinar, studying and highlighting the important parts of a datasheet, sending information by post or email, working on designing an ad or writing your own testimonial. If you do a little bit every day, I think it tends to keep your heart and mind more open. And when you do get an opportunity to share, you’ll be ready for it.

Getting Started

A fine way to follow up is to call some of your top-producing downline Members and ask, “Could we do a meeting?” The truth is that I’m not very proud of some of my first meetings, but you do improve if you keep trying. We all have to start somewhere.

It reminds me of when I used to be a schoolteacher. When my students had to do some creative writing, they would ask me how to get started. And when I asked them if they knew the best way to get started, they eagerly anticipated some wonderful tip from me. But I’d say, “Just get started.”

And when people say they can’t get motivated, I think of some words from John Maxwell’s book, The Fifteen Invaluable Laws of Growth: “Motivation is not going to strike you like lightning … Motivation is like love and happiness. It’s a by-product. When you’re actively engaged in doing something, it sneaks up and zaps you when you least expect it … So act. Whatever it is you know you should do, do it.”

Most people who have been successful have found this to be true. Don’t let the seemingly urgent stop you from “doing” what is important for your AIM business.

It’s Wild: Bear Paw Garlic

Shared by Paul Clemmer, AIM Star Sapphire Director

Many years ago, I was introduced to a product from The AIM Companies™ called Bear Paw Garlic. I had heard of the bulb kind many times before, but Bear Paw was very different.

I learned that Bear Paw’s garlic grows wild in Europe’s mountainous areas and that when bears come out of hibernation in the spring, they gorge on this alpine garlic. I also learned Bear Paw Garlic was super special, being a leaf and having qualities and properties that bulb garlic doesn’t, such as being much higher in adenosine and odorless on the breath.

As I continued to do research, I began using Bear Paw Garlic, not knowing that it would come in very handy for something as common as a sore throat. The soreness in my throat would go away seemingly overnight after taking it.

It worked on our grandkids as well. But how do you get children to swallow capsules? Well, we found a simple way to them give Bear Paw Garlic: sprinkle the contents of one capsule on some apple sauce. They began begging for it, especially if they had sore throats because they remembered how quickly the soreness went away after eating Bear Paw Garlic-flavored apple sauce!

One of the many other great benefits of Bear Paw Garlic is that it is good for blood pressure. I didn’t have this problem back in 1996, when I was first introduced to it. But as time went by, I developed hypertension and soon learned it could be controlled quite easily with Bear Paw Garlic.

I began taking it on a minimal basis at first, increasing it to the recom­mended three cap­sules daily as I got older. This natural health product has kept my blood pressure levels normal. I’m very thankful that I can use something natural, just like the bears, to control such a simple thing as high blood pressure and not have to use pharmaceuticals with all of their side effects.

I’m very thankful to The AIM Companies for having researched and brought the ingredient in Bear Paw Garlic to us from Europe, where wild alpine garlic has been used medicinally for hundreds of years.

PrepZymes Eases the Bite!

Shared by Charlotte Thompson,  AIM Chairman’s Club Director

Enzymes have really interested me for the last few years. I have a thick book that emphasizes their importance: the more enzymes, the more life. They are like workers in our bodies. If we don’t have enzymes, we don’t live. This has interested me so much that I’ve become quite acquainted with AIM PrepZymes.

People often call to ask me about pain and inflammation. AIM has a number of products that address these issues. And now I’ve also come to learn that taking PrepZymes in between meals helps the body to repair and restore. Recently, I put these AIM enzymes to the test for pain and inflammation … of my own.

I was bitten by a spider on the bottom of my foot, making it swollen and painful. My middle son and I had made plans to go camping for the weekend and he was going to teach me how to fly fish. But I could hardly walk, so I decided it was time for me to try what I had been telling everyone else about PrepZymes: great for reducing inflammation.

Along with all my other AIM products, I started taking PrepZymes daily, emptying the contents of multiple capsules into water and mixing it with my little blender. In other words, I began drinking my enzymes.

We headed out on the camping trip and then it was time for me to go fly fishing for the very first time in my life. I put on the waders and was able to walk without limping or feeling any pain. That was amazing to me. Each day the swelling in my foot went down. PrepZymes helped to reduce the inflammation from the spider bite so that I didn’t have to miss out on this new experience.
