Saying Yes! to Opportunity

Sometimes an opportunity comes along in life that “AIMs” you in a healthy direction. Chairman’s Club Directors Hilton and Edna Smith’s initial introduction to such a prospect was a near miss.

The Smiths were first introduced to AIM’s green juice powder by Dr. John Shewfelt, Chairman’s Club Director and chiropractor. They responded with a polite “No, thank you. We have all our vitamins!”

At that point in time, Hilton and Edna were part of a large, family-owned beef feedlot operation. Testing soil and animal feed showed the need for supplementation to provide a balanced ratio of nutrients, so it made sense to supplement their diets too.

“I was a stay-at-home mom with two sons and helped with the farm bookkeep­ing,” Edna recount­ed. “We were always very dependent on weather and market prices. In fact, our future looked very bleak because each year our agricultural business went further into debt.”

The idea of a home-based business really appealed to her, so they enrolled with a network marketing company to use their vitamins and share them with others to make a little cash. “We achieved some measure of success, similar to AIM Director,” Edna explained “but found it very stressful to maintain the high monthly qualifications to keep our status. We saw too many distributors losing their status to ever dream of being successful with that company.”

AIM came back into the picture after Edna witnessed the positive results from her sister’s use of AIM’s barley juice powder while going through radiation treatments. This got Edna’s attention, and she determined to find out more about this powerful green drink and The AIM Companies™ that marketed it. After reading the AIM Member Income Plan, Edna recognized its exciting potential.

“Chairman’s Club and beyond was possible because titles are permanent as long as the membership is kept current,” Edna admitted, “I started to dream about what we could do with the extra income.” She was now sold on AIM but still had to convince Hilton. That happened when her AIM income started to exceed his.

Three years after joining AIM, Hilton resigned from the farming business, which went into receivership a year and a half later. Their AIM income allows them to still reside on their 100-acre farm.

“We shudder every time we think about almost missing the opportunity to make beautiful new friendships, share better health and wealth and experience a financial freedom we never dreamed possible,” Edna stated. “We are so thankful that we had a second chance to say ‘Yes!’ to AIM.”

Dreaming with Faith Bring Success

Shared by Hilton and Edna Smith, AIM Chairman’s Club Directors

It’s been our joy and privilege to be part of the AIM family since November 1987. We could never begin to count all the ways in which our AIM business keeps blessing us.
Our success formula is based on FAITH: faith in God and that with Him all things are possible, faith in AIM and AIM products and faith in ourselves.

F ~ reminded us to focus on AIM. AIM has been our passion for over 30 years. It’s so exciting when people thank us for helping them improve their quality of life.

A ~ acting upon our “written” goals always kept us on track. I think the biggest mistake that people make with a network marketing business is that they fail to treat it as a business. The only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary. I always enjoy going to work in my home office and choosing my own hours.

I ~ imagine success. I would get so excited hearing all the testimonials every time we had a home meeting, that afterward, when I jumped into bed, I would say, “Look out Chairman’s Club … here we come!” And now we are still excited to hear the good reports as we receive the honor of being inducted into the Two Million Dollar Club.

T ~ stands for teach and train others. The training that we provided for others through our home meetings, teleclasses, phone calls, literature, etc., always motivated us as well. It was work, but it was fun.

H ~ help everyone you can. Network marketing is a numbers game, so the more people you help, the more successful you become.

I am so thankful that God gave me a loving and supportive husband who did a lot of behind-the-scenes work, always helping me with meetings, health shows, preparing meals and gardening and encouraging me and our Members. Together, we thank our AIM owners for providing us with this amazing opportunity. We also thank our caring team of distributors, many who have become cherished friends.

Most importantly, we thank our Heavenly Father for directing our steps to The AIM Companies™. We can’t help but marvel at how our lives have changed, and, more importantly, how many lives have been changed since we joined AIM. Becoming a part of the AIM family was certainly the best decision we ever made. Dreams do come true when you dream with faith.

A Product by Any Other Name

Member Income Plan Our Most Overlooked

There’s an incredible product that The AIM Companies™ makes available to all Members, but you won’t find it in the product section on the order form. And it’s not something that everyone is going to be interested in, as incredible as it is.

At the same time, it isn’t a product you take or apply to your skin. But when applied to life, it has beneficially changed the lives of many AIM Members and can change the life of anyone who chooses to take advantage of its benefits.

The Member Income Plan

Selling the Member Income Plan is the backbone of AIM network marketing because AIM products are sold by independent distributors, not by retailers. And unlike retail businesses that expand by opening more and more branches, network marketing expands by having more and more independent distributors: AIM Members who believe in and use the AIM products and enjoy the benefits of the Member Income Plan by sharing their knowledge.

At the same time, when Members are selling this income-earning product, it is something they talk about on a need-to-know basis. In other words, AIM independent distributors develop a sense for knowing when it’s the right time to introduce the Member Income Plan.

Some new Members express an interest in an AIM home-based business right from the start while others may take their time to latch on to this opportunity. And then there are those who want to use AIM nutrition only without a side of business. That’s okay. Not everyone is interested, but for those who are, the Member Income Plan is a gift that keeps on giving.

Since 1982, active AIM inde­pendent distributors have earned and been paid regular commissions on an on-time basis. That is just one of the many benefits of being a Member who has shown an interest in the Member Income Plan and followed through by building an AIM business. And The AIM Companies™ will always support each and every Member who shines bright like a diamond.

A Promise Kept … Continue Striving

Shared by David Baxter, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

My wife, Helen Ruth (Hoff­man) Baxter was never short on ambition. After a successful venture selling Avon products, she ultimately joined AIM in 1987, working out of an office in our home. Her goal was to work full-time selling the wonderful AIM products. I assisted her whenever possible.

In just five years, she and I achieved the highest possible level in the organization, AIM Chairman’s Club Director. She humbly credited The AIM Companies’ product quality with her success, but her love for people and concern for their health were always foremost in her mind. Her first customers were those she had previously come in contact with through Avon.

Over the years, Helen vigorously studied the AIM Member Income Plan with the goal of maximizing earnings to someday become a Member of AIM’s Million Dollar Club. This was her dream and our goal. Unfortunately, before this goal could be reached Helen passed on at the age of 82.

Shortly before her death, I made a promise to her that I would do the best I could to accomplish our goal and become members of the Million Dollar Club. Although April 28, 2011, was the most disheartening day of my life because I lost my beautiful wife, Helen, after nearly 57 years of marriage, I was compelled to carry on our business and more determined than ever to complete the goal we had set.

In January of 2018, our goal was achieved and I was notified that we reached the Million Dollar Club. Although, Helen is no longer here to share this moment with me, I know she would be elated at our milestone.

“Aren’t They All Just Pyramid Schemes?”

How I joined a network marketing company and never looked back

I consider myself open-minded, but in the last few years I have found that the majority of people do not share my open-mindedness. My story begins a few years ago when a friend introduced me to a product called Herbal Fiberblend. I was having some digestive issues … I’ll spare you the details. What I can tell you is Herbal Fiberblend made an incredible difference. I was so impressed that I did some research and decided to get started with the company that offers this product. Within five months, my entrepreneurial business took off and I made the decision to go into it full-time. My friends and family thought I was making a mistake. But I am happy to report that the only mistake I made was not starting sooner!

Before I started my business, I had absolutely no entrepreneurial experience. In less than two years I now make a better income in this so-called “pyramid scheme” than I did as a pharmacy technician, a job I went to school for and went into debt to achieve. The irony is that the income from my new business has actually helped to pay off the balance of my student loans!

“You will never make money in a pyramid scheme.” Honestly, leaving my pharmacy tech position to do entrepreneurial sales full-time was scary. After all, I had a stable income and benefits with an established company. But the people I met working in the business were the first to tell me, “Everything is a pyramid scheme.” There will always be a hierarchy at every company with someone making more than the next person, and so forth.

I now understand exactly what they meant. Looking back, I realize that no matter how hard I worked at the pharmacy, there was always going to be a ceiling on how much I was going to be paid.  When I approached my supervisor about the possibility of advancement, he too expressed the goal to grow in his career and compensation. When you think about, most companies have a ladder to the top, with different “levels.” Sound familiar? Wanting to move up in earning and position is something that nearly all of us strive for in our professional lives. What makes entrepreneurial network marketing unique is you can achieve this without being held back by the hierarchy above you in the organization.

So why do network marketing companies have such a bad name? Because they are NOT all the same. From the moment I made the decision to go full-time as an entrepreneur, family and friends were skeptical. There were remarks like, “You know that a lot of ‘those companies’ have gone out of business or been investigated for being pyramid schemes, right?” Yes, there ARE direct selling companies that have not followed good business practices or have disregarded the rule of law. But it’s important to keep things in perspective. Those companies often fold within a few years. Still, it is important that you do some research before you decide to join any direct selling company. Make sure the company you choose sells a commodity and pays you based on the sale of that commodity. Make sure it is a product or line of products you can confidently stand behind. If either of these is not true, stay clear.

The company I chose has been in business for over 36 years and offers a line of high-quality whole-food and nutritional products that I personally use with confidence.  So, I am able to make an income offering products that I trust in and can help a person’s health and well-being. When I talk to people I never promise anyone that they will make a six-figure income or get a free car, for example.  In fact, early on in the relationship I typically don’t discuss the business opportunity with a customer or prospect unless they ask.  I simply suggest products based on my experience and a person’s needs, emphasizing the product’s benefits and the 30-day money-back guarantee. I certainly don’t claim to be a doctor or know of a “cure-all.”  The nice thing about this company is I don’t even have to build a team of salespeople and can still make a good income.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about the other reasons I enjoy being an entrepreneur. No, it’s not all about the money you can earn! For me, it is also about the relationships. I have made a lot of friends through my business. It’s also about personal development. I was always a follower, having had poor self-esteem since childhood. Being an entrepreneur has helped me become a much more confident person and leader. I didn’t have that sense of purpose and self-assurance in my previous work.

And by the way, most people fail in this kind of business because they lack motivation and initiative. You can be given every tool you need to succeed, but if you do not apply yourself, you fail. It is important to attend to the business, to streamline your prospecting system, and to build and maintain your team. Just like in a regular job, if you do the right things and do them diligently, you will eventually succeed.

I am not discouraged by negative articles about network marketing because I know it works. I’m not wealthy yet, but it won’t be long before I’m making a better income than most of the people I know with college degrees, some of whom never had a job that related to their field of study. And when they complain to me about student loan debt, lack of opportunity for advancement, or working for “the man”, I can guarantee you I will tell them about The AIM Companies.

Why AIM Members Are Called Diamonds

In the AIM network marketing world, Members are integral not only to the success of The AIM Companies™, but inseparable from the level of success. The more successful that Members are at building their AIM businesses, the more successful AIM grows.

Members are like sales representatives of good health who are out in the world promoting AIM’s natural products and introducing them to people who purchase them. Some of these new Members will build businesses of their own, following a similar path of the Members who sponsored them. It’s called growth, and growth is the “element” that keeps a company going. Without this element, AIM would not have existed for the past 36 years.

The Diamond Connection

Diamond is a pure element: carbon compressed to its crystal form, making it the strongest mineral on earth. Of all of the gems in the world, diamonds are among the most precious, if not the most valuable depending on the type of diamond. So it is no play on words that The AIM Companies refers to AIM Members as “Diamonds.” It refers to the truth that Members are the most precious element in the entire concept of AIM.

2018 Diamonds Aglow Celebration

The radiance of diamonds is unpar­alleled, and over the past three and a half decades the AIM family has had a myriad of types of “Diamond” Members, each with a unique background and path to success that radiates to this very day.

The 2018 AIM Diamonds Aglow Celebration will include the opportu­nity to express appre­ciation for “Diamond” Members as the AIM family gathers in fel­lowship from July 12 -15 in Toronto, Canada.

And, to complement the “Diamond” agenda, AIM is excited to announce that Chrysalis Networx will conduct the training sessions in Toronto!

Registration deadline is May 25, 2018. Forms available online.

“Having attended the African Dreams Success Summits in South Africa, I am thrilled to learn that Chrysalis Networx will be training, motivating and inspiring all of us at The AIM Celebration in Toronto. This is going to be tremendous!”
– Ralph Peterson, Chairman’s Club Director
