Nancy Fitzmorris Reaches AIM’s Million Dollar Club

Nancy Fitzmorris

Nancy Fitzmorris of Covington, Louisiana reached AIM’s Million Dollar Club in September 2015. Her journey started when she saw an ad on TV that talked about slowing down the aging process. She was thirty then and had heard that “it was all downhill after thirty.” She became a voracious reader on the subjects of health and fitness and began making positive lifestyle changes.

It was from her sister that she first learned of BarleyLife® back when it was still sold in a glass container with a red lid. Nancy was in the middle of researching green juices, but when she found BarleyLife, she began sharing it with others. She held numerous meetings, inviting AIM speakers whenever she could. Eventually, she opened a food co-op, and that turned into health food store called Springs of Life. She now sells organic produce, vitamins as well as the AIM products in her store.

“We opened a café last September. I had always visualized an area where I could make juice and smoothies. We used wood from the trees we lost during Hurricane Katrina, cherry and pine. All the trim is from that wood. I like to think that I made something good from the sadness of Katrina.”

In her café, the buffalo and mushroom burgers are the top sellers. Among the AIM products, she sells more BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend® and Renewed Balance® than anything else. She herself takes two tablespoons of BarleyLife daily, more if she feels tired. She also uses Proancynol® 2000, Renewed Balance® and CellSparc 360® on a regular basis.

“When people come in with health issues, I tell them they need to look at their diets and to eat green foods loaded with enzymes like BarleyLife. I find the greens give people more energy, and they feel their immune systems are stronger. With Renewed Balance, I’ll have husbands come in and thank me for helping their wives. I sell other creams, but Renewed Balance users won’t use anything else. I try not to run out.”

Now in her late seventies, Nancy is proud of achieving every goal that she’s set. As a lifelong hard worker, she doesn’t think that she’ll ever retire, but she hopes to take a few more vacations. She entered into the health and wellness field because she enjoyed helping people, getting them to improve their lifestyles, to exercise, to eat more vegetables, to cut back on processed foods and stress.

“I didn’t set out to be in the Chairman’s Club. I thought, ‘gee, that would be nice.’ But I had fun working towards that, sharing and seeing people’s health change. Getting a check for doing something you enjoy is a fantastic bonus. “

AIM Changed My Life!

M Helm

Shared by Madaleine Helm, AIM Royal Emerald Director, South Africa

AIM was a true godsend for me and my family.

My son was born with many allergies and eczema, and he developed asthma at the age of four. I didn’t know a single thing about nutrition, so I prayed, “Lord, show me what I am doing wrong.” During the next month, He sent me to a new Bible study group, where I was introduced to the AIM products. Very skeptically, I started my son on AIM’s green barley grass powder. After using it for only a couple of weeks, my four-year- old’s asthma started to clear up. I started to read up on health and nutrition and attended a friend’s healthy cooking demonstrations. The year was 1989, and my journey with AIM to better health had started!

This same friend told me about the AIM business opportunity. Being a stay-at-home mom with a struggling marriage, this caught my attention. I told my friend that I want to do this as a business.

The struggles in my marriage propelled me to persevere in becoming financially independent and not give up. Not long after joining AIM, I went through a divorce. Being a single mom with no financial support from my husband, I found myself going through tough times. With the moral support of friends, family, and upline, and with a monthly AIM check, my son and I got our own little two-bedroom place. I started doing more AIM talks and educated myself in health and nutrition. Before long, I was seeing people in my small townhouse, using my little dining room as an AIM office.

We used the products ourselves, but some months I only had enough income to provide my son with only one product— none for myself. We became living testimonies of the benefits of taking AIM BarleyLife® and other AIM products.

AIM has provided me the opportunity to choose my hours. Through working my AIM business, I had the wonderful opportunity to spend afternoons with my son right through primary school, taking him to after-school activities and being there for every match and cultural activity. Sometimes he even went with me to do an AIM talk, sitting in the front row, swinging his legs to and fro with his little arm in the air, saying, “Mommy, may I tell them what BarleyLife did for me?”

Through high school, I was able to be there for him, too—to watch his games, to see him grow up. I always paced myself, trying not to spend too much time on my business and neglect my first priority, which was being a mother.

In this current season of our lives, my son is off to college, turning twenty-one this year, and I am able to spend more time on AIM. I have a goal to enlarge my income and to reach as many people as possible with AIM’s excellent products and business opportunity.

Today I am married to a very kind man who gives me the freedom to do health talks, meetings and training, to travel extensively and to reach those people in need of health.

In looking back, I can truly say that the Lord sent AIM into our lives and that through AIM our lives have changed.

Star Sapphire Director Promotion: Nikola Wilkie

Nikola Wilkie

Reaching the elite levels of the AIM Member Income Plan, Nikola Wilkie promoted to Star Sapphire Director in June 2014. Nikola’s association with The AIM Companies™ began in 1998, when she came across AIM Herbal Fiberblend® after reading Cleansing the Body and the Colon for a Happier and Healthier You by Teresa Schumacher, Chairman’s Club Director.

As a trained naturopath in the early years of her practice, Nikola was on the lookout for good products. “Looking at the ingredients, I knew I had found a brilliant product,” Nikola stated. “I am skeptical by nature, but, after scrutinizing the AIM products, I knew they could help a lot of people.”

Her association with AIM has had a daily impact on her life as Nikola also uses the products to help maintain good health. She recalled her initial transformation after trying Herbal Fiberblend for the first time. “Five weeks after I started taking it, I was bouncing with energy, having cleaned the lining of my gut for the first time in my life.”

Being a health care practitioner, Nikola sees so many older people with serious health issues. “I am very grateful I have access to such a wonderful range of products that can help them,” she said. “I don’t take this lightly.”

By also offering products such as AIM BarleyLife® and AIM Composure®
at her clinic, Nikola’s AIM business grew. She reached Director level within three months and her business plateaued shortly thereafter, but remained constant for about fourteen years.

In early 2013, Nikola contracted dengue fever, a mosquito-borne disease that made it a struggle to manage her clinic, mortgage, and life. “Those questions that come, like, ‘Why am I doing this?’ became louder, and I felt I needed to change my direction,” Nikola admitted. “I wanted my time and finances to be plentiful enough to be able to take care of my family and friends as we grow older.”

Nikola decided to take the wonderful opportunity that AIM offers and help even more people improve their health, not just the ones that come to her clinic. Melinda Lewis, General Manager of AIM Australia, encouraged Nikola over the past few years, spurring her on to do more. “I started talking to small groups, becoming friends with those who wanted to know more, and I enjoyed it,” Nikola confessed. “I can do this for the rest of my working life with pleasure, and the business will continue to grow.”

The AIM Academy: Higher Education for Anyone

AA

“I was trained many years ago as a home economics teacher and home economist and did get a good foundation. However, the holistic side of nutrition is so different from the mainstream. In the years since, I have studied holistic nutrition through books, DVDs, classes, and seminars for my own health and my family’s. This was how I stumbled upon the AIM products through a friend in the early 1990’s and have taken them myself since that time.

In recent years, I have more time to share them with others and hope to increase their use of these wonderful products. I had been aware of the AIM Academy for many months, but felt I already knew enough so somewhat ignored it. However, one of my goals for the New Year became to take these courses to become a Living Well coach. I found the AIM Academy to be very informative on nutrition and how the synergy of nutrients in plants is superior to the chemical combinations in some supplements. The marketing side is also very informative as that is my weak link in all of this. So I hope what I learned in this area will help me to use my nutritional knowledge in a practical way. That’s where it really counts as far as helping others!”

AIM Business Passed Down to Granddaughter…

shock

...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.”

The AIM Academy

AIM Academy

By Colleen Oakley 

AIM Preferred Member 

Hertfordshire, England

I am very new to AIM, although I have dipped in and out for years. In addition, my upline is in South Africa, and I am in the UK. When AIM Chairman’s Club Director Jenny Brown, my sponsor, suggested doing The AIM Academy course, I decided to go for it.

I have been a nurse for many years, studied a lot about nutrition and have belonged to many network organizations. I didn’t think there was much this course could teach me. How wrong I was!

I love that the AIM Academy focuses on nutrition first and income second. As I worked my way through the modules, I was reminded anew of how great our Creator is and what a miracle our bodies are. I learned so much about renewal from the cellular level and beyond. Doing the course has also given me a hunger to learn more. My objective is to read one datasheet a day until I have absorbed them all.

So, onto the income and business building, it’s not as interesting to me. Though I do want to make a living out of this, so I’d better learn it well!

I found if I worked through each module and made my own notes to help keep them straight in my mind, it made sense.

All in all, an excellent course. It can only help to improve your health or build a business or both.

Natural Living with AIM

Liana

Back in 1997, AIM Director Liana Kopalyan thought she was headed for a career as an attorney. With a BA in hand, law school was the next step. After marrying Nerses Kopalyan, she decided to take a year off before continuing her studies.

During that time off, she found a small cyst after performing a breast self-exam. Her doctor recommended that the benign, tumorous mass be surgically removed. Within less than a year, it grew back. Her grandmother had died from breast cancer, so Liana felt there was a high possibility that the same thing could happen to her.

“I remember praying to God to show me what was wrong with my body,” Liana said. The next day she received a telephone call from Alice Muradyan, her friend and AIM Director, about a seminar in Mission Viejo, California, being conducted by Mary-Ann Shearer, AIM Chairman’s Club Director. Liana went to the event with a friend. “I was crying the entire time during the seminar,” she admitted. Approaching Mary-Ann afterward, Liana asked her for help.

Mary-Ann put her on a lifestyle-changing program, assuring Liana that within a month her body would repair itself and the cyst would melt away. “I bought everything Mary-Ann was selling, stocking up on AIM BarleyLife®, and then reading her books and doing research,” Liana said. “Deciding to do everything new, I trashed all of the bad food in my kitchen and went shopping at Whole Foods.”

Having decided to be 100 percent committed to the recommended lifestyle changes, it took only two weeks for her body to heal. To make sure that the cyst was no longer there, she went back to the same doctor who was now confused about whether it was the right or left breast because the cyst was gone. “It’s not difficult to comprehend. My body healed itself with nutrition like BarleyLife,” Liana stated. “I constantly take it!”

The journey to becoming an attorney reached a fork in the road at this point in Liana’s life. Instead of going to law school, she took Mary-Ann’s two-year course to become a Natural Health Consultant. Liana explained, “I got serious about good health for my family.”

In 2002, the family moved from California to Nevada, where they began attending the International Church of Las Vegas. “Our pastors, Paul and Denise Goulet, became our spiritual parents,” Liana stated, “providing leadership and bible training. After getting to know us, they supported me in teaching nutrition classes for the church.” She used Mary- Ann’s book as an outline and added fitness lessons as well.

Since 2010, Liana has been using her own workbook, 7 Keys to Vibrant Health, which makes it easy to understand and implement the lifestyle changes required to achieve and maintain wellness. Supplementing with AIM nutrition is one of the keys.

“I teach people that with the correct nutrition, the body can heal itself,” Liana  said. “As a general rule, I recommend the Daily Essentials—BarleyLife® for greens, AIMega® for omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids, and AIM Herbal Fiberblend® for fiber and cleansing herbs. During the winter months, the AIM Garden Trio® is a must.”

Thousands of people have gone through Liana’s Natural Living program, and most arrived with health issues that ranged from the common cold, the flu, and weight management to life-threatening problems, including high cholesterol, depression, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. By practicing the lessons learned, thousands have had incredible success, such as AIM Group Builder Gil Quintana, who was able to reverse a type 2 diabetes diagnosis and went on to become a part of Liana’s team.

“I have amazing team members with incredible testimonials,” Liana acknowledged, “including a woman who was able to heal from uterine cancer. Without chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery, three tumors disappeared within six months. She healed the natural way.”

Word of mouth is one of the most effective forms of advertising, and word got out about Liana and her effective methodology. Class sizes and schedules increased, and it was not long before she was holding seminars outside of Las Vegas for audiences of 100 to 1,000 in places such as Mexico and as far away as Armenia, where Liana was born and raised. She also teaches private clients from the USA, France, Holland, and Russia.

Her original intent to keep her family in good health has also come to pass. Liana and her husband, Nerses, who is a full-time pastor of the Armenian Church of Las Vegas have two daughters, Ovsanna and Loyda, and a son, Samuel. All three children take AIM products.

Liana is currently working out of a wellness center in Las Vegas and in the process of opening her own nutrition center. Her vision is to provide 100 percent natural products and services for clients and students local and abroad.

Looking back on what Liana feels is a divine connection that led her on this journey, she acknowledged, “I am grateful to Mary-Ann Shearer for restoring my health. Over the years she has been my teacher, professor, role model, and now an amazing mentor.”
