Peak Endurance Shared with Team Cow

Shared by Cara Knipp, AIM Group Builder

Established in August 1973 by The Des Moines Register, RAGBRAI has since become the longest, largest and oldest recreational bicycle touring event in the world. It’s like “Woodstock” for cyclists, with over 18,000 riders registered to participate throughout the week of riding and events for RAGBRAI 2017.

The week prior to the festivities, I was fortunate to meet Scott Schoppert from Renner, South Dakota, one of the athletes who was participating in his fifth RAGBRAI. We shared a mutual interest: great health through all-natural, whole food. We have since then discovered we share another mutual interest—The AIM Companies™! Scott plans to become an AIM Wholesale Member as a result of our RAGBRAI experience, purchasing a Starter Pack and some Peak Endurance in his first order.

But wait . . . let’s back up the bike!

The week after I met Scott, I was able to join his Team Cow for three days of RAGBRAI. I pitched a tent with the team and got to share with them about The AIM Companies. I provided Peak Endurance to enhance their RAGBRAI riding experience. They loved it! I provided a pre-exercise concentration in the mornings (even filled some of their “water bottles” before they set out for their daily ride of 45–100 miles) and met them in the next town with a post-workout concentration to help them replenish and re-hydrate. While I waited for their arrival, I set up a display table on neighborhood street corners and offered free samples to hundreds of riders as they passed by. They were grateful . . . and energized. And my puppy Jazz got to tag along as well. We had a fantastic time and made many new friends. We’ll never forget our first RAGBRAI experience and the hospitality shown by Scott and his team. Hopefully they will never forget us and the energizing power of Peak Endurance. Go Team Cow!

Our Journey with The AIM Companies™

Shared by Carolyn Kling, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

The fall of 1981 was the very beginning of a future we could only have dreamed about. God had our future ordained for us and it began when one of Jim’s real estate clients brought a jar of green powder into our office. Being an entrepreneur, Jim immediately saw something in this jar that sparked a fire under him.

After a thorough investigation and seeing folks getting well from their ailments, Jim was convinced to get involved sharing this with others. So we jumped in with both feet and closed our real estate business. Soon we had a business growing up around us.

We organized many meetings, shared with all our family and friends and anyone else who would listen, and the excitement grew. We experienced a new energy level and wellness that we had not had before. We began to travel as our network began to spread. We set our goals and made plans to carry them out. We worked as a team, and it was so exciting seeing what God was doing, not only in our lives, but in so many others. As we taught the health message and how to share it, folks were not only getting improved health but also financial rewards with a nice paycheck.

Our excitement and determination just kept growing and now as we look back, we stand in awe seeing how we reached for every promotion available. With that business success and our teaching and training came countless folks with improved health and incredible incomes.

What an incredible life God had planned for us and we listened. We were able to not only enjoy a lifestyle far beyond our dreams, we also were able to help our family in many ways.

Jim’s big dream was to own a beautiful ranch in the central mountains of Idaho and set up a ministry there and our AIM business helped this dream come true. Jim’s sign on the big gatepost is “Kling Ranch, On Loan from God.” This ranch has provided not only R&R for us and our family, but we have youth and church camps, pastors, R&R retreats, family hunting and so much more.

In the beginning we felt very strongly that we had hold of something bigger than us, and that has certainly proved to be true.

Our lives were truly enriched in every way possible. Thanks be to God and thank you to Ron Wright, Dennis Itami, the AIM staff and our team around the world.

The Great Wheelbarrow Race

Shared by Nikola Wilkie, AIM Star Sapphire Director

From Chillagoe to Mareeba it’s 139 km and in those parts of Queensland, Australia, it doesn’t rain too often but it did the day before The Great Wheelbarrow Race, an annual fundraiser. Leading out from Chillagoe a long stretch of the road is not sealed and 42 teams of runners negotiated the mud with wheelbarrow in hand for almost a full day.  There’s nothing actually in the wheelbarrow but it’s being pushed for a good cause.  There usually is a good cause behind an insane act like this pushing an empty wheelbarrow for three days.

Over 400 participants pushed to raise money for their chosen charity.  At the end of a hard run of at least a 35 km most went to sleep in their swag on the ground, thankfully there was a clear sky.

I’m not that crazy as to run behind a barrow but I was there to support my team of ten by working on their bodies to keep them able for the next day’s run.  A Recovery Team of six worked on bodies for 6-8 hours using Australian muscle-releasing techniques Bowen and Emmett.  Putting tired feet in a bath of AIM CWR was the first relief, and rubbing AIM Mag-nificence magnesium lotion into legs was very welcome.


Our team were well backed with AIM products.  On board the bus the runners were primed with Red Rush nitric oxide boost at the beginning of the day and kept going with Peak Endurance.  Taylor, my son, was the source of encouragement.  Through his training he knows how valuable the products are for everyone wanting stamina.

The task is to run just 10-15 seconds pushing the wheelbarrow, the driver of the bus toots the horn at the command of the timer, the next runner jumps out of the moving vehicle and takes over pushing.  Of course it is in the teams best interest to keep that barrow moving but taking control of a moving barrow is no easy feat. The first runner then jumps back on board the still moving vehicle and finds a seat whilst the next runner lines up to jump out.

Thanks to AIM Australia’s contribution to us we were able to raise over $2,000 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

NOTE: Nikola has worked as a naturopath in Cairns for over twenty years.

Amazing BarleyLife

Shared by Wellington Cheng, AIM Preferred Member

Before retiring at age seventy-four, I worked as a journalist and editor for a Chinese newspaper in the Bay Area for twenty years. I first started taking AIM’s barley product now known as BarleyLife over twenty years ago.

Today, I’m nearly eighty-nine and feel very good.

My very good friend, David, introduced me to BarleyLife. He said to mix it well with juice or water and take it two times a day to maintain good health. I knew he meant well, so I promised him I would try it. Besides barley is a plant, so I thought it would be beneficial for the body.

At that time, I was working long graveyard shifts, going home in the early morning after the newspaper was printed. By taking BarleyLife twice a day, I did not feel tired or exhausted, even though I was already over the age of seventy. Besides drinking barley grass juice twice daily, I ate light, did not smoke or drink and never took any tonics. My health was good.

When I retired in 2002, there were a lot of life changes. I adopted a normal routine without night shifts and had more free time to do whatever I wanted to do, including travel. I could walk just fine and did not feel old at all. To simplify my life, I stopped taking BarleyLife. Within six months, my black hair started turning white, which I thought was age-related.

Now I seldom saw David as he had moved. Then one day, he and his wife came for a visit, and we had lunch together. I told him that I had stopped drinking BarleyLife after retirement and shortly afterward my hair turned white. I wondered if it had something to do with not taking BarleyLife. David said, “If that’s so, you had better drink it again.”

I started drinking BarleyLife again mixed with juice every morning and night. Thirteen years have now passed, and I still have a lot of hair with no increase in white hair but lots of new black hair. Close-up, it looks like salt and pepper hair, only with more pepper than salt!

When my hair turned white, it was a visible sign of the aging process and a very good indication of other damage that may be hidden from view inside of my body that occurred when I stopped taking BarleyLife. I will take BarleyLife for the rest of my life—it has an amazing effect.

FloraFood Saves the Day

Shared by Brenda Ratich, AIM Preferred Member

My son, Tyrel, began having severe abdominal cramps when he was around fourteen years old. I talked to a few parents who said it could be Crohn’s disease, but Tyrel’s medical checkup showed that it wasn’t. Still the problem persisted.

Being a young athlete who played basketball in high school, Tyrel sometimes had to spend an hour or more in the bathroom because of the terrible cramps. To avoid spending so much time in the students’ toilets, he would often sneak into the teachers’ private washroom.

Occasionally, he got caught on the way out by a teacher who would say “You know that’s for teachers only, right?” Tyrel would answer, “I know.” But because of his good rapport with the teachers, they all knew that he must have had a good reason for not following the rule.

Fortunately, Flora­Food was recom­mended to me by Alison Douglas (AIM Director), who even­tually became my sponsor. Within a week or so of taking this probiotic from AIM, Tyrel finally found relief from the painful cramps. It made such a positive difference in my son’s life.

Tyrel’s twenty-two now, so he’s been using FloraFood for around eight years. He is studying at Simon Fraser University, where he recently became an alumnus of the SFU football team.

During his football years as a defensive lineman, Tyrel would have no abdominal cramping as long as he consistently took FloraFood. But every once in a while, he couldn’t be bothered and stopped taking it. His symptoms returned after a week, and then he would start complaining about the cramps.

“Within a week or so of taking this probiotic from AIM, Tyrel finally found relief from the painful cramps. It made such a positive difference in my son’s life.”

I would have to ask him, “Are you taking your FloraFood?” He wasn’t of course. And he couldn’t afford an attack before a football game because he wouldn’t be able to play. As soon as he went back on FloraFood, Tyrel was back in the game!

These days, Tyrel is taking a variety of AIM supplements, including AIMega, Just Carrots and BarleyLife Xtra (because he likes the sweet taste) to boost his nutritional intake. And he won’t be without his FloraFood!

People Know How Much We Care

AIM Partners Message in its entirety (excerpt printed in June Living Well magazine)
Shared by Jenny (and Bill) Brown, Chairman’s Club Directors

As an ageing Baby Boomer I grew up in the era where there was a strong social sanction against ‘blowing one’s own trumpet’, or ‘being too big for one’s britches’. (I doubt that our younger readers even know what britches are!). We now live in a culture of self-promotion which says “recognize my accomplishments – I am pretty special”

“Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom” is a quote from the Bible (Jeremiah 9:23) so please understand right up front that my gratitude goes to God for the wisdom and opportunity He afforded me through The AIM Companies­™. I hope something in this article will trigger some inspiration for you to make use of AIM’s Healthy Business Opportunity.

The bottom line in a successful AIM business is that people know how much we care, rather than how much we know, or how many degrees and accomplishments we may have to our credit!

Since my husband retired nine years ago, we have been able to continue with our comfortable lifestyle, as my AIM income has enabled us to go easy on withdrawals from our investments.

This was my “retirement plan” and it has worked!  In no business other than network marketing, can one earn in this way without needing capital, premises and staff, or having to work at a 9 to 5 job.

But WORK I did as I built my downline in the form of the following and I hope this helps you.

One of the foundation principals I learned from AIM was … USSBT


Use the products
Share the products
Build strong relationships
Teach others to do the same

My husband Bill, and myself, are our own best customers. We have both had close calls after medical operations. We both recovered remarkably well after the causes were found, and thanks to the AIM products (the Garden Trio in particular) we made speedy headway which astounded the Medics. So use the products … we certainly do!

Sharing the products is so easy with the money back guarantee from AIM. We don’t try to sell … we just share our stories and of those people we have helped, and the benefits of the products. You don’t have to be a salesman/woman!

To sponsor someone interested in becoming a wholesale member, is to make oneself responsible for their success. This is where you offer to hold meetings in their homes and invite others to share success stories of using the products, including – Before I used the product followed by the benefits After using the products, and always include the name of the products and quantity used.

Work deep and wide (sounds like a Sunday school song about God’s love)!

In a home meeting you don’t sign people up under yourself – you sign up the Hostess/Host and then sign up her/his invitees under them. That way you build a team that you can work with and you still benefit.  Biblically, this is called sowing and reaping!  Entrepreneur Zig Ziglar said “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want”.   Do the right thing – that is most effective.  Some of my best friends are my AIM first line members (wide) and other amazing friends are those I have worked with who are 3 to 4 levels below me in my downline (deep).

Building strong relationships comes with encouraging the new signees when they achieve a goal. Giving a gift, or a card, or some acknowledgement in a home meeting will go a long way to inspiring them. They will duplicate what they see, and teach their downlines to do the same.

John Maxwell said “Efficiency is the foundation for survival – it means doing the thing right.” BUT he also said …. “Effectiveness is the foundation for success – it means doing the right thing!”

In 1998 when I joined AIM, the internet broadband era hadn’t arrived yet in S.A., so no Google or AIM website.  We had to get a fax to see how our downline was progressing.  Now we have so many tools – one can download video clips, data sheets, magazine articles, listen to webcasts, email newsletters, study without cost on AIM’s online Academy, and enjoy wonderful back-up support from the AIM offices in each centre where AIM is represented.

When we had our house painted many years ago, we were most impressed by one fellow who gave us a quote.   He said he worked on the 3 P Principle.     With interest we asked him what that was….


So in preparation for your home meeting, I suggest printing out beforehand some Price Lists, some Wholesale Membership Forms, buy some tot glasses and mix something for attendees to taste … could be Peak Endurance for sporty people, CalciAIM for older folk with osteoporosis, or Garden Trio for folk who don’t eat enough of the good stuff.    Let them handle the containers and taste something – this always generates great interest.

If you are reaching people with digestive challenges, mix up some stiff oats for the occasion.  Then in the meeting open two capsules of PrepZymes – stir them into the oats and leave this mixture until the end of your meeting which is when you show them how it has turned to liquid!!  Most impressive as a digestive aid.

Be enthusiastic – don’t wait for all your ducks to be in a row .….. JUST DO IT!!

Those that fail to plan, plan to fail!!
