Not Just Survive, But Thrive!

Shared by Mike and Heidi Toft, AIM Directors

“There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world,
and that is an idea whose time has come.”

                                                       –Victor Hugo

I love the fact that if we are still breathing, we have an opportunity to create change. It is never too late to do what you want to do. And there is no time like the present. Catchy phrases are nice, but action is what makes your dream materialize. And if your dream is to help people live well, AIM will help you get there.

We were first introduced to AIM’s juice powder of barley grass in 1998. My dad had been diagnosed with lymphoma. The side effects of the proposed treatment were not ones that my dad was ready to live with. My parents, AIM Directors Larry and Marsha Bernhardt, began to research a holistic approach and were led to The AIM Companies™. I watched as they began to live a radical lifestyle of raw, organic foods and vitamin and mineral supplementation.

Their courage to go this alternative route inspired me, after our third miscarriage, to try a different approach to my hormone deficiencies. Although I know our three children were mostly answers to a lot of prayer, I give much credit to AIM also. Through the years, my mom has made sure we were never without BarleyLife, frequently giving it to us at no cost. We fell in love with other AIM products too. Sometimes we could afford them, but many times they were gifts from my mother, who often gave away BarleyLife to help people in ministry be healthy.

Those who are called to ministry, especially in the role of pastor, will face many challenges. One of these challenges is to remain healthy. It is easy for stress management and healthy lifestyle choices to fall low on the priority list until it is too late and good health has been compromised.

In the summer of 2015, we decided to take action in this area, and I became an AIM Member, promising to be faithful in taking my supplements. I ordered business cards and planned to share the products and build a business. I already had the passion for good health. Through my own health struggles I had learned quite a bit and desired to see other people reach good health.

And then the fight of our lives began.

The church that Mike pastored had some serious problems brewing. We kept up with our AIM supplements as we intended, but there didn’t seem to be mind space left for starting a business. I often looked longingly at my pretty business cards sitting on the shelf and hoped for my second chance. Hope is a powerful thing. Hope is not action, but it does keep the possibility of future action afloat until it is time to act. Our time came in 2017.

Every year, Mike and I each choose a word for the year— a word that encompasses how we want to grow for the next twelve months. Without knowing it, we both chose the same word for 2017: THRIVE! We were excited. We were not going to just survive, we were going to thrive. Little did we know that within two weeks, our family would experience the darkest and most difficult trial of our lives.

I once read that not always telling all the details of your story is the more tasteful choice, and that is what I will choose here. But anyone who has endured the path of complicated grief will understand how difficult it was to consciously make the choice each day to thrive. At the same time, the church problems had only advanced, and it was time to make some big life decisions.

The AIM idea came to both Mike and I one day in March. We started to research what made The AIM Companies so desirable. We spoke with really helpful people from the company, we discussed our plans with family and friends and we prayed about it. We found the AIM Academy on our Member home page and both of us completed our Living Well Coach certifications. We spent the month of March envisioning a future helping people live well.

“Through my own health struggles I had learned quite a bit and desired to see other people reach good health.”

On April 3, we opened for business. We decided that Team Toft would be all about building relationships with people while we coached them on their living well journey. We found that when you get people to talk about their health, they open up about their life. We also found that there are many people who aren’t feeling well and many people who are hurting from the circumstances of life. We committed to pray for each member of Team Toft to thrive. We love the Healthy Cell Concept that challenges us all to reevaluate the choices we make in what we eat, how we think, what we allow into our environment and in why we exercise and supplement with the superior products from AIM. We are most excited when we hear that someone is experiencing improved health.

Realizing that it was time to move on, Mike chose to step down as pastor of the church, where we had been serving for eight years. Our passion is to help people be the best version of themselves by living well and finding God’s purpose for their lives. Because of AIM, God has given us more “work” in this area than ever before. We are excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.

We hope our story gives some late bloomers (like us) out there the inspiration they need to reignite any fires that have been smothered by circumstances. The decision to thrive is yours. Perhaps the time has come for your idea.

Best Practices as an AIM Member

by Melanie Zeluf, AIM Royal Emerald Director

It has always been my high honor and great privilege to be a part of AIM. This is in the forefront of my mind and heart whenever I share the AIM products and business opportunity with others. We are independent distributors representing AIM. Whether sharing one-on-one in an impromptu setting or at a market or meeting, the guiding principles should be the same. This is what I perceive to be best practices in my role as AIM Member:

1. Professional conduct. Reliance on AIM-approved materials. Personalized care and attention to detail. Really listen to what the client is expressing or asking.

2. Adherence to legal parameters. Avoid making claims of cures or mitigation of symptoms. Rather stressing wellness, self-stewardship and whole-body health through improving one’s nutritional profile.

3. Identifying Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Vegan and Kosher products as well as those with assigned NPNs in Canada when appropriate.

4. Distribution of AIM’s Membership Agreement to prospective new Members as part of a sign-up package.

5. Be clear in sharing, when people ask, that AIM has not pursued organic certifications, but the AIM products are grown under organic standards. (AIM has a couple of articles on this topic which I always keep handy as this is a commonly asked question.)

6. Accompany product samples and new customer purchases with detoxification and product specific datasheets to provide product instructions and a healthy serving of caution regarding the possible symptoms of detoxification.

7. Liberally dispense business cards so contacts at public venues can follow up in the future. Because of the nature of these sometimes fleeting contacts, many people are justifiably guarded regarding sharing personal information.

8. The beauty of public venues like markets is that potential new Members initiate the contact, so there is automatically some degree of interest which can then be fueled.

9. Always maintain credibility by admitting if you don’t know something and committing to finding out. A prompt response by reviewing AIM literature or accessing AIM’s Live Chat on the website is always well received.

10. I attempt to customize the timing of sharing and emphasis on AIM’s business opportunity based on the expressed, pressing needs of the person who I am sharing with. In other words, I exercise tempered restraint of my unrelenting exuberance for everyone to know and experience AIM as I have for the past thirty years!

Amidst some of the aforementioned formalities, let your passion and compassion shine through. The timeless adage, “People want to know that you care before they care what you know” still holds true.

Simultaneously, it is essential to challenge yourself to lifelong learning at the AIM Academy and comprehensive basic training for all Members. Embark on it, proceed at your own pace and revisit the content as needed. It’s a wonderful confidence-building tool on anatomy, physiology, the products and the AIM business opportunity. Upon completion, you will have another title at the end of your name: Living Well Coach.

AIM BarleyLife and the Cat

My husband Art signed up to AIM because of a cat. Seriously! It was a cat that brought green blessings to the Ottawa Valley. The animal’s owner was a Wholesale Member who took what is now known as AIM BarleyLife for his personal use only, and Art witnessed the healthy transformation of the man’s pet.

The cat was so riddled with arthritis that going to the litterbox was the only time he was mobile. Otherwise, he was just lying around, unable to jump on the sofa or bed, and the cat had to be carried upstairs. Within a few weeks of being fed the green juice powder, the cat was more like his old self again.

When Art saw the cat jumping up on the furniture again and moving all about, it really impressed him. There was no placebo, no positive suggestion and none of this “power of the mind” stuff in the cat. It was the greens!

Art signed up with AIM under the cat’s owner, not the cat, and came home one day with a 6-pack of this amazing green powder. He had seen its potential for improving health. Reaching Chairman’s Club in 2002 and then getting into the One Million Dollar Club proved him right about the potential for earning an income as well.

“AIM changed our lives, so thank you to the owners and staff for all the support throughout the years.”

When we started with AIM, I was working as a nurse and experiencing a lot of pain in my wrists from arthritis. I couldn’t even mow the lawn anymore. When I began taking BarleyLife, things changed.

During the first month, I could feel the joint pain diminishing and my energy increasing. At the same time, the headaches I usually had around my period became more frequent. Fortunately, I learned in a nutrition class that this was one of the symptoms of detoxification. I persevered and eventually the arthritis and headaches became a thing of the past.

Art and I started promoting the health benefits of BarleyLife. We couldn’t believe how many positive testimonials just kept on coming. And we were both in good health and had so much more energy, even after long days at markets or health shows, where we introduced so many people to AIM. Many of them are still our best friends.

That was more than twenty-five years ago. Art passed away in July 2009. He lived such a full life. AIM changed our lives, so thank you to the owners and staff for all the support throughout the years. And a BIG THANK YOU to my team (upline, downline and customers) for believing in the AIM products and a whole-food approach to supplement our nutrition.

On a final note, the cat lived for twenty-two years!

BE IN HARMONY AND STAY CURIOUS.
Klazina Ketting, Chairman’s Club Director
