Challenges Hone Successful Entrepreneur GJ Reynolds

GJ Reynolds released a statement today reflecting on the challenges he has faced in his life and how they have contributed to his success as an entrepreneur. GJ contends that the holidays need not be a time of stress and frustration, and that positive change is possible even in the face of seemingly hopeless adversity.

GJ Reynolds, a highly successful entrepreneur, mentor, author and philanthropist, today released a statement crediting the life lessons learned as a youth as the basis for his achievements. From his years in the US Army to the formation of the Mission G Foundation, GJ has always espoused the ingredients of specific purpose, hard work and joyful living.
“I’m releasing this statement today because I know that the holidays can be a difficult and stressful time for many people,” said Reynolds. “I want them all to know that success is possible even in the face of seemingly hopeless adversity. Don’t let the fact that the weather is getting colder bring you down. Take that warrior spirit, and continue to pursue your dreams!”
When GJ Reynolds joined the ViSalus Corporation, an international health and fitness company, they were searching for growth and expansion. He quickly became invaluable, helping them develop the highly successfulBody by Vi 90 Day Challenge. The thread of meeting challenges through finding purpose, working hard and living well was the basis of his book, “The Playful and Powerful Warrior Within You”. This philosophy has guided him through all his accomplishments.
In business, GJ has become a major influence in the network marketing industry, as well the personal development field, earning praise and financial success. He is a Vi Millionaire, 5 Star Ambassador and Top Producer Leader for Visalus, as well as a sought-after motivational speaker. He mentors high performers, seeking a healthy and prosperous life.
Another area where GJ excels is in physical well-being. Spurred on by a challenge from lifelong friend Coach Dale Brown, Hall of Fame and two-time National Basketball Coach of the Year, Reynolds became the first person to win the “Dale Brown Challenge”. This challenge involved walking or running 2 miles and working out for at least an hour every day for a year. “Today,” GJ says, “I’m stronger, faster and more fit than I was 20 years ago. Dale Brown’s Challenge is another way I have been vigilant, purposeful and have also utilized perseverance and fun, to reach a goal”.
With all his accomplishments, the one most meaningful to GJ, is the formation of the Mission G Foundation. Through its good works, GJ is able to give back to others. “Helping people is my passion. Through Mission G I am able to help transform and enrich the lives of others through education, nutrition and financial support. At both Visalus and Mission G, we save lives.”

Andrew Carnegie’s Analysis of Enthusiasm by Napoleon Hill

When asked which of the two types of enthusiasm he regarded as the more beneficial, Andrew Carnegie replied: “That depends upon the circumstances. Passive enthusiasm always precedes the expression of active enthusiasm, as one must feel enthusiasm before he can express it in any form.

“And there are times when the active expression of enthusiasmmay be detrimental to one’s interests, as it may indicate over-eagerness or anxiety, or disclose one’s state of mind when he does not wish it to be known to other.
“It is highly important that one learns to withhold the expression of his feelings whenever he wills to do so. It is also important to learn to turn on enthusiasm and give it any desired form of expression at will. In both instances the control is the important factor.
Enthusiasm inspires personal initiative, both in thought and physical action. It is very difficult for one to do his best in any kind of endeavor for which he does not feel and display enthusiasm.
“It dispels physical fatigue and overcomes laziness. It stimulates the nervous system and causes it to perform its duties more effectively, including particularly the digestion of food. For this reason the meal hour should be the most pleasant hour of the day. It should never be made the occasion for settling personal or family differences of opinion; nor should it become the time for the correction of the faults of children.
“Positive enthusiasm discourages all forms of negative thought, and dispels fear and worry. Thus it prepares the mind for the expression of faith, which is the most powerful of all forms ofenthusiasm. It is important that one learn the difference between negative and positive enthusiasm, since enthusiasm is the starter which puts the subconscious mind to work.
“Enthusiasm is the twin brother of the will, and is the major source of persistent, sustained action of the will. Will power, persistence and enthusiasm are triplets which give one sustained action with a minimum loss of physical energy.
“Emerson spoke no greater truth than when he said: Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

    Neil Haley, The Total Tutor host of the Total Celebrity Show, interviewed Toya Bush-Harris to find out about her show, her home life, and her charity work.
    Born and raised on the south side of Detroit, Bush-Harris attended Tennessee State University and then graduated from the University of Phoenix before returning to Detroit to pursue her career as a Pharmaceutical Representative for several Fortune 500 Companies.

    CEO of Simply G Media, GJ Reynolds, Discusses How to Succeed in Network Marketing on the Simply G Radio Show, a Division of The Simply G Media Network

    Neil Haley, The Total Tutor host of the Simply G Radio Show recently interviewed Vi Millionaire GJ Reynolds to uncover the real meaning of network marketing, discuss common misconceptions, and dig into strategies one can use to become a successful network marketer.
    GJ Reynolds is an original equity holder in the company ViSalus, a Five Star Ambassador, Vi Millionaire, and CEO of Simply G Media. He is also the author of “The Playful and Powerful Warrior Within You”. Reynolds has worked out for 900 days straight, and successfully completed the Dale Brown Challenge in 2013.
    On the recently aired radio show, Reynolds shared what the real meaning of network marketing is: tapping into a network and leveraging word-of-mouth advertising to reach a warm market.
    Network marketing – or multi-level marketing – has developed a somewhat negative reputation, according to Reynolds. “All business are pyramids; they happen in all industries,” he said. “If you are making money it is not a ‘pyramid scheme.’” Reynolds also discussed the fact that network marketing provides a much simpler platform for starting one’s own business, making it fairly easy for anyone with entrepreneurial drive to find success.
    The Vi Millionaire went on to share three practical ways to be successful in network marketing:
    1. To find success, stay the course.
    “People think it’s about getting rich quick. I’ve been an entrepreneur who has had major success, but at one point I was also depressed and suicidal. Staying the course is key; you must be very clear in your mission and vision,” said Reynolds.
    2. Create your own network.
    According to Reynolds, “You must be willing to grow your network organically, and smartly leverage the connections you make along the way.”
    3. Surround yourself with the right people.
    “You need to build each other up,” said Reynolds. “Being around people who share similar goals and great work ethic helps enforce your confidence as you strive toward success.”

    A Miracle Worker by Napoleon Hill

    I met Mr. Stone for the first time in 1953. It was then that I began to unravel the dramatic story of his rise to fame and fortune, starting in business for himself with only one hundred dollars in cash and a copy of my most popular book, Think and grow Rich. I was so intrigued by the effective application Stone had made of my success philosophy that I accepted his offer to help him take the Science of Personal Achievement to his entire insurance personnel.

    The task covered ten years during which I devoted all of my time to helping Mr. Stone indoctrinate his entire organization with my success philosophy. It was a tremendous job but it paid off in terms which proved conclusively that my twenty years of research under the direction of Andrew Carnegie had uncovered a miraculous formula for helping people to get from where they were to where they wished to be in life.
    When I first began my association with Mr. Stone, many of his top executives frowned upon the alliance as being a waste of time. They had never heard of a success philosophy based upon what five hundred outstanding men had learned from a lifetime of experience through the trial and error method, and they were naturally suspicious of it.
    When I began my association with Mr. Stone the annual premium income from policy holders was around $24 million and Mr. Stone’s personal fortune was estimated to be more than $160 million.
    How much did I get from the association? you may wish to ask. The cash I received was negligible in comparison with that which Mr. Stone received, but I was not working for monetary reward; I was after something far greater than that which could have been gained by any amount of money, for I had proved during those ten years of association with Mr. Stone that the Science of Personal Achievement could perform miracles for those who embraced it and made intelligent application of it.

    Pearls of Thought! by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone

      Many of the ideas which come to us as we learn to see with fresh eyes will strike others as bold. These ideas can either frighten us or, if we act on them, make our fortunes. Here is another true story of pearls. This time the hero is a young American, Joseph Goldstone. He sold jewelry to Iowa farmers, door-to-door.

      Then one day in the heart of the Depression he learned that the Japanese were producing beautiful cultured pearls. Here was quality, and it could be sold at a fraction of the cost of natural pearls!
      Joe “saw” a great opportunity. In spite of the fact that it was a Depression year, he and his wife, Esther, converted all their tangible assets into cash and set out for Tokyo. They landed in Japan with less that $1000—but they had their plan and lots of PMA.
      They obtained an interview with Mr. K. Kitamura, head of the Japanese Pearl Dealers Association. Joe was aiming high. He told Mr. Kitamura of his plan for merchandising Japanese cultured pearls in the United States, and asked Mr. Kitamura for an initial credit of $100,000 in pearls. This was a fantastic sum, especially in a period of depression. After several days, however, Mr. Kitamura agreed.
      The pearls sold well. The Goldstones were well on their way to becoming wealthy. A few year later, they decided they wanted to establish their own pearl farm, which they did with the help of Mr. Kitamura. Once again they “saw” opportunity where others had seen nothing. Experience proved that the mortality rate of oysters into which a foreign object had been artificially inserted was over 50 per cent.
      “How can we eliminate this great loss?” They asked themselves.
      After much study, the Goldstones began to use on the oysters the methods employed in hospital rooms. The outside shells were scraped and scrubbed to reduce the danger of infection to the oyster. The “surgeon” used a liquid anesthetic that relaxed the oyster. Then he slipped a tiny clam pellet into each oyster as a nucleus for the pearl that was to be formed. The incision was made with a sterilized scalpel. Then the oyster was put into a cage, and the cage was dropped back into the water. Every four months cages were raised and the oysters were given a physical checkup. Through these techniques, 90 per cent of the oysters lived and developed pearls, and the Goldstones went on to acquire a fabulous fortune.

      A Positive Mind Tunes in on Other Positive Minds by Napoleon Hill

      Once I had accepted the great task and had set my mind confidently toward it, I found that my imagined obstacles simply melted away. Of course my positive mental attitude helped me not only in finding out the success secrets of some five hundred of America’s wealthiest men, but also in making considerable more than a mere living. Am I a genius? I must say I have positive evidence I am not!

      In meeting many men I discovered a very valuable fact: a positive mind automatically obtains benefit from other positive minds.
      Are you aware of the general principle of radio broadcasting? It is this: when electrical vibrations of rapid frequency are impressed upon a wire, those vibrations leap into space. Another wire far away—the receiving antenna—can pick them up, and thus a message or a picture is transmitted over thousands of miles, or millions of miles in space-age communication.
      There are electrical currents in the brain. They give you a private broadcasting station through which you may send out any kind of thought vibrations you desire. Keep that station busy sending out thoughts of a positive nature, thoughts which will benefit others, and you will find you can receive kindred thought vibrations from other minds whose attitude is tuned to yours.
      When I visited such successful men as those I have mentioned, and many others such as John Wanamaker, Frank A. Vanderlip, Edward Bok and Woodrow Wilson, both they and I felt the attunement of mind to mind. Otherwise I surely would have met with opposition when I asked those top-ranking men to give me of their time and experience. Not only did such men spend hours talking to me, but also they served as my teachers and guides for year after year, and charged me nothing.
      Believe in what you are doing, and you too will see the great effect of your belief upon those whom you may request to help you. Doubt yourself and the No part of your mind takes over and draws defeat instead of victory.

      Inspiration Begets Knowledge and Know-How by W. Clement Stone

      One evening, in a “Science of Success” class, a teacher of music who was also “spinning records” part time at a leading metropolitan radio station jumped up and asked the question:

      “How can PMA help me? As long as I live, I can never expect to earn an average of more than $100 a week as a teacher of music. This is true of any other average teacher of music.”
      I immediately responded: “You are absolutely right! You can never earn more than $100 a week on an average—if that is what you believe. But if you choose to believe that you can earn $250, $300, $350, or any other specific sum, it will be just as easy or just as hard as earning a $100 a week. Memorize Napoleon Hill’s famous self-motivator: What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve. Repeat it many times throughout the day. Say it with emotion and feeling at least 50 times this evening. Then set your objectives. Set them high! And get into action. Let me know what happens!”
      Three and a half months later, this teacher wrote:
      “I have come out of the maze since I started the PMA course. My health is better than ever. My average income for the past ten weeks has jumped to approximately $370-$380 a week. Despite the many hours I put in, my attitude is very cheerful and positive at all times.”
      The night that music teacher asked “How can PMA help me?” he did not just hear the answer given him – he listened! To hear does not necessarily imply attention or application. To listen always does. And he listened to the messages that were applicable to him. He began to recognize and understand the constructive force of the right mental attitude in the word believe. And he began to use this force.
      When he wrote his letter, he was still teaching music and spinning records at the same radio station. He was the same man. What has happened then? Who made it happen? He responded to suggestion. He used self-suggestion as directed. He changed his belief from “It can’t be done” to “It can be done!” He dared to aim higher.
      One afternoon, when a famous actor appeared at the radio station as a guest artist, the music teacher decided to get into action. He responded to the self-starter Do it now!
      He became so enthusiastic in telling about the happiness that comes to one who learns to love music by playing a musical instrument well that the actor urged the teacher to teach him. This actor could afford to pay the tuition charged by an expert who was willing to fit his time to suit the convenience of the student.
      Because of his new mental attitude, the teacher recognized the principles and developed know-how from this experience. When other celebrities or guest artists appeared at the radio station, he sold them on the joy of learning to love music. He told them how easy it is to learn if one is properly taught. He merely repeated the procedure that had proved profitable influencing the actor. And that’s know-how.
      That’s how the music teacher acquired the knowledge to increase his earnings. In addition to teaching music, he sought other means to increase his income – and, because he sought, he found what he was looking for.

      Entrepreneur and Executive Adam Contos Discusses the Importance of Marketing and Sales on the SimplyG Radio Show, a Division of the SimplyG Media Network

      Simply G Media Network today announces the release of an interview with Adam Contos on The Simply G Radio Show hosted by Neil Haley, the Total Tutor.

      Neil Haley, The Total Tutor host of the SimplyG Radio show, interviewed Adam Contos to find out the difference between sales and marketing and the importance of each.
      Adam spent his “first” career of 11 years in law enforcement, leaving after growing to the position of SWAT Commander, where he coordinated and motivated a top team of professionals. Adam’s entrepreneurial spirit took him in to the private sector via a security consulting company that he founded, working on business, personal, and facility security and safety measures. He also developed a personal safety program titled S.A.F.E.R. for real estate agents and outside sales professionals. Adam’s presentations took him to over 30 cities in North America, speaking to tens of thousands of professionals about integrating safety in to their businesses. “It’s an amazing thing when someone comes up to you and tells you that your program may have saved their life,” Adam proudly shared. He is in it to help people.
      In 2004, he became a full time business consultant and progressed to the position of Vice President at RE/MAX, working on business development, franchise sales, and helping franchisees grow their businesses.
      In our discussions, Contos elaborates on the importance of sharing not selling. He says that you can no longer sell straight to people and, instead, you have to build trust and make connections first. He also stresses the balance of both marketing and sales, and you have to get in front of the customer by addressing their needs and pains instead of giving them features and benefits.
      According to Contos, you have three sources of business— repeat business, referral business, and brand new business. A business has to work on a balance and constant focus on all three creates successful growth.
      “GJ Reynolds, CEO of the SimplyG Network, has taught me a lot about helping people,” said Contos, who also mentioned how helping people is key to lead generation, which is very important to sales. “You are finding leads because you want to help people. The more you network the more business you find. You should try to meet 10 to 15 people a day and make a positive impression on them all.”
      Contos continued: “I find something people like to talk about and then have conversations with them on Twitter or Facebook. I find that as soon as you make an impact on an influencer, you grow your network.”
      In the interview, Contos expressed his gratitude toward Reynolds. “GJ is a very powerful person. I talk to him weekly. We share life experiences. He holds me accountable for the goals I am trying to attain. He is an inspiration.”
      CEO of SimplyG Media GJ Reynolds said, “Adam is a man of character and he is a great student. Great leaders are great students and Adam is both. He understands the importance of sale and marketing is excellent in teaching others how to excel in both.” Reynolds also shared, “We do a weekly accountability call and because of this call we both have elevated our own personal businesses and achieved various goals. Iron sharpens iron and Adam has been a blessing in assisting me to sharpen my iron. We both suggest having a weekly accountability call to raise the bar for one another. It has proven to work very well for the both of us.”

      “Everything that was documented as Sir or Lord,” Reynolds said, admitting that he found this amusing. “I flew from London to Stuttgart to do a Challenge Party in that city. When I spoke at the Challenge Party I had a translator named Jürgen Pulvermüller. He is a National Director and Jürgen is brand new to the business.”
      Reynolds’ team in Germany impressed him, he said. “They asked a lot questions, who I was as a person and my goals. They wanted to know me.” Reynolds’ said his German team was focused on developing a solid and deep relationship.
      According to Reynolds, one of the best parts of the trip was to see that people in Germany are looking to lose weight and be healthier. There is an obesity epidemic worldwide and Reynolds sees the Challenge as the solution.
      In the interview, Reynolds also discussed how members of his team showed him Germany, how he took a tour of a castle, how he drove on the Autobahn—where his car fell victim to a flat tire—and more.
      Reynolds said that he hopes to learn German, so when he returns to Germany he is able to communicate to his German Team much better.

Reynolds took a picture with the horse of two of his team members, Pete and Hillary Webb. Reynolds said, “It looked like Codie was enjoying the content of my book!” The Webb’s daughter is an equestrian rider and future UK Olympian.
        In the interview, Reynolds expressed his affection for the UK and said he has been having a lot of fun. One way he has broken the ice with his neighbors across the pound, Reynolds shared how he received a welcome letter from British Airways saying Lord Reynolds. He was playing around on the trip and gave leaders of his team different royal names and titles.
        During the trip, Reynolds visited 10 cities in 7 days. He did trainings and challenge parties in all 10 cities. He was promoting a health and weight loss challenge at each location and sharing his own personal transformation.

        Vi 3-Star Ambassador Jordan Delacruz Discusses His Business and The Challenge On The Simply G Radio Show, a Division of The Simply G Media Network

          SimplyG Media Network today announces the release of an interview with ViSalus 3-Star Ambassador Jordan Delacruz on The SimplyG Radio Show with host Neil Haley, the Total Tutor.

          Neil Haley, The Total Tutor host of the SimplyG Radio show, interviewed Jordan Delacruz to find out about his business, his physical transformation, and why people should join Delacruz’s Visalus team.
          Born and raised in Hawaii, Delacruz served 10 years in the United States Army, including a tour in Iraq. He left the United States Army and, with no prior experience in network marketing, earned $500,000 in 22 months while working for Visalus. By his second month, he was generating a 5-figure-a-month income. Now he’s a ViSlaus 3-Star Ambassador.
          He hopes to produce several Vi-Millionaires on his team in 2014. According to Delacruz, he was not in the best shape. His mom introduced him to the Visalus 90-Day challenge, a program that helped her lose 10 pounds. He said he saw an opportunity to lose weight and get in shape and, in a matter of 48 days, his waist-size shrunk from 35″ to 32″ and his body fat percentage was down 10 percent.
          “A lot of different people helped me rise to the top in the company,” said Delacruz. He got help from Vi Ambassadors Nate Ridgeway, Madiba Thompson, Elias Calejo, Tony and Rhonda Lucero and GJ Reynolds. “I took massive action and was a sponge [in learning all that I could from them].”
          Jordan also spoke about what it means to work with 5 Star Ambassador GJ Reynolds. He said, “GJ is very transparent. He stayed the course. He has vision, and is VI for Life.”
          During the interview Delacruz said that he is so excited about the expansion of his business in Europe, where he already has clients in Germany and Austria. According to Delacruz, it will help him as he continues to go out and challenge people to get healthy one person at a time.
          “Just lose that 10 pounds or build that 10 pounds,” said Delacruz. “It’s easy to understand. The belief system grows.”
          Delacruz also mentioned Project 10 Kids, which is a program designed to help put a dent in childhood obesity. “Me being a father and having 6-year-old daughter, Project 10 speaks to me.”
          When asked why people should join Delacruz’s ViSalus team, the 26-month veteran said, “I am in the trenches with you. I am going to help you reach your goal. I lead by example and I make sure I am out working you and recruiting you and challenging you.”

          Learn to See by W. Clement Stone and Napoleon Hill

          We may think we recognize our own talents; yet in this respect we may be blind. Let’s illustrate with an example of a teacher who needed to have her mental vision checked. She was both nearsighted and farsighted. For she could not see either the present or the future potential abilities and capacities of her students, or their points of view.

          Now everyone—the great and the near great – had to have a starting point. They weren’t born brilliant and successful. As a matter of fact, some of our greatest men were regarded as quite stupid at times during their lives. It was not until they grasped a positive mental attitude and learned to comprehend their capabilities and envision definite goals that they started their climbs to success. But there was one young man, in particular, whom his teachers thought “a stupid, muddle-headed blockhead.”
          The youngster sat and drew pictures on his slate. He looked about and listened to everybody else. He asked “impossible questions” but refused to reveal what he knew, even under the threat of punishment. The children called him “dunce,” and he generally stood at the foot of his class.
          And this boy was Thomas Alva Edison. You will be inspired when you read the life story of Thomas A. Edison. He attended primary school for a total of less than three months. The teacher and his schoolmates told him that he was stupid. Yet, he became an educated man after an incident in his life prompted him to turn his talisman from NMA to PMA. He developed into a gifted person. He became a great inventor.
          What was that incident? What happened to Edison that changed his whole attitude? He told his mother about hearing the teacher tell the inspector at school that he was “addled” and it wouldn’t be worthwhile to keep him in school any longer. His mother marched off to school with him and told all within range of her voice that her son, Thomas Alva Edison, had more brains than the teacher or the inspector.
          Edison called his mother the most enthusiastic champion a boy ever had. And from that day forward he was a changed boy. He said, “She cast over me an influence which has lasted all my life. The good effects of her early training I can never lose. My mother was always kind, always sympathetic, and she never misunderstood or misjudged me.” His mother’s belief in him caused him to view himself in an entirely different light. It caused him to turn his talisman to PMA and take a positive mental attitude regarding studying and learning. This attitude taught Edison to view things with deeper mental insight that enabled him to comprehend and develop inventions which benefited mankind. Perhaps the teacher didn’t see because the teacher wasn’t genuinely interested in helping the boy. His mother was.

          The Captain of Your Soul by Napoleon Hill

          Man alone has been given the privilege of fixing his own earthly destiny, with the right to make it pleasant or unpleasant, successful or unsuccessful, happy or unhappy, rich or poor, and his achievements are always unpredictable because his potential power is unlimited.
          If man had but two more privileges than he now possesses he would be on an equal footing with the Creator; namely, (1) the privilege of coming into the world at birth, of his own choice; and (2) the privilege of remaining among the living as long as he desires. Man has potential control over almost everything else, but alas, he rarely discovers the powers available to him or makes any attempt to use these powers for his own uplift, or to make this a better world.
          For the most part, man settles down in a sort of tug-of-war struggle with forces which become unfriendly toward him because he does not understand them—forces such as the great miracles of life—and he gladly settles with life for a place to sleep, a little food to fill his belly and enough clothes to hide his nakedness.
          Once in a long while an individual steps out of the long procession of human beings, takes possession of his own mind, recognizes its powers and makes use of them. Then the world has found an Edison, or a Ford, or a Luther Burbank, or an Alexander Graham Bell, or a Henry J. Kaiser—men who have removed all self-imposed limitations because they learned the truth that “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.”
          Geniuses? Yes, because genius is simply a matter of self-discovery!
          Know yourself—your “other self” which does not recognize limitations—and you may become “the Master of Your Fate, the Captain of Your Soul,” and peace of mind will come to you as naturally as the eating of a meal when you are hungry.

          Super Bowl MVP and NFL MVP Kurt Warner Discusses his Latest Project on The SimplyG Radio Show, a Division of The SimplyG Media Network

          1. 1
          2. 2

          Host GJ Reynolds and co-host Neil Haley, The Total Tutor of the SimplyG Radio Show, interviewed Kurt Warner to find out about his latest project First and Goal.

          Host GJ Reynolds and co-host Neil Haley, The Total Tutor of the SimplyG Radio Show, interviewed Kurt Warner to find out about his latest project First and Goal.
          Reynolds shared, “Kurt you have been such an excellent role model, both on the field and off of it. Thank you!”
          Warner’s gained superstar status in 1999 when he emerged from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. Warner was named the NFL and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. He led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances, including another Super Bowl. He was named to the NFL Pro Bowl 4 times and named NFL MVP for the second time in 2001. He ended his career with the Arizona Cardinals, setting franchise records for touchdowns, attempts, completions, completion percentage and passer rating.
          In this interview, Warner discussed his project First and Goal. According to Warner, after finding out he out he had high cholesterol he changed his diet and started exercising, but the high cholesterol persisted. He wanted to take care of the problem—his dad had heart surgery related to high cholesterol and Warner was trying to avoid following that path. He learned there is a hereditary factor, so he consulted his doctor and created a game plan. The doctor put him on statin, which is a drug aimed at lowering cholesterol.
          Now, said Warner, he wants others to find out and get in to the game of heart health. He’s on a mission through his First and Goal project to raise awareness and help people get checked out by a doctor—even if they are currently healthy.
          “So many people give up at 40,” said host GJ Reynolds. “My best days are ahead of me. I hope others start to think that way as well.”
          During the show, Warner talked about statins. “Not all statins are the same. I had side effects with one of the medications I was taking. LIVALO is different than other medications. Sit down with your doctor and ask about the options.”

          ViSalus National Directors Mark and Diana Taylor Discuss Their Business and The Project 10 Challenge On The Simply G Radio Show, a Division of The Simply G Media Network

          Simply G Media Network today announces the release of an interview, with ViSlaus National Directors Mark and Diana Taylor on The Simply G Radio Show with host Neil Haley, the Total Tutor.

          Neil Haley, The Total Tutor, host of the Simply G Radio show, interviewed Mark and Diana Taylor to find out about their business and why they promote the challenge.

          Diana Taylor is a ViSalus National Director and was able to achieve this rank in a short period of time. Her husband Mark Taylor started his 90-Day Challenge and has benefited greatly. In this interview, Mark talked about how a friend introduced him to the challenge and his wife started promoting the challenge.

          Mark went to the doctor in November. The doctor told Mark to change his lifestyle and warned him that if he didn’t, he was going die. Mark said that shortly after, he took charge of his health and started the Challenge on December 30th. Thanks to his success, Mark and Diana started promoting the Challenge together.

          “We became a director in 49 days, 63 days regional director, and 81 days national director,” Mark said. A great deal of their success, according to Mark, is because his wife Diana is able to share the challenge based on Mark’s testimony of losing weight. They work as a team. They see Mark’s results and it helps grow their business.

          Mark, who once weighed 280 pounds and suffers from high blood sugar, said that he lost 27 pounds in 90 days. After completing the challenge, he’s proud to say his clothes no longer fit. He is following his doctor’s orders and getting healthier. He gives a testimony at every challenge party and, everyday, Mark posts his sugar readings on Facebook. His sugar readings were (on average) 172 and now they are (on average) 98. On the show, he said that his major goals include getting off his high blood-sugar medicines and to drop his weight to 220 pounds.

          Mark and Diana also talked about what it is like to work with 90-Day Challenge co-founder, 5 Star Ambassador and Vi Millionaire GJ Reynolds.

          “He is an amazing man,” said Mark. “He has supported both of us. If we have any questions or need help, GJ is there for us. He even came to one of our challenge parties in South Carolina. He is a great person. He knows his business inside and out. He goes above and beyond, as he once flew in a snowstorm and drove up to challenge party and helped grow our business.”

          GJ said, “Mark and Diana are what the Project 10 Challenge is all about. Simply speaking, we help people be healthier; and in most cases, it transforms their life in a big way. Mark and Diana have also transformed their prosperity too. I love working with people like them who are able to see the vision, choose action and be the challenge themselves! I am blessed to work with so many great people! Mark and Diana have also had great support from 2 Star Ambassadors Nate Ridgeway and Brannon East. Ambassadors David and Lori Crisp have been with them every step of the way too! Great team, great people, and great results!”

          Successful Visalus Ambassador & Entrepreneur Travis Tarr Discusses His Business on The Simply G Radio Show, a Division of The Simply G Media Network

          Simply G Media Network today announces the release of an interview with Vislaus Ambassador Travis Tarr on The Simply G Radio Show with host Neil Haley, the Total Tutor.

          Neil Haley, The Total Tutor host of the Simply G Radio show, interviewed Travis Tarr to find out about his business and how he joined the Challenge.
          Tarr is a Visalus Ambassador and a physical therapist. He helps patients be in shape and recover from surgeries and other injuries. Tarr learned about the ViSalus Project 10 Challenge from a friend who went to the Miami Vitality. They were not in the best shape, so they decided to accept the challenge and become healthier.
          In this interview, Tarr explains that one of the reasons he decided to promote the Challenge was because he was dealing with people arthritic problems in his practice and yet he was not in the best shape. How could they take his advice if he was unwilling to live by it himself, he said. According to Tarr, the ViSalus products have helped his family lose 140 pounds in 90 days. His family no longer needed their blood pressure medicines thanks to this weight lost, as every pound lost leads to .4 pounds less of joint stress. Since promoting the Challenge, Tarr said his patients have lost 140 pounds too.
          On the show Tarr also explained how he can promote the Challenge even though he is very busy, what his mission is and how the ViSalus business did not change his time commitment to other important parts of his life. He also said that people interested in the Project 10 Challenge understand the goal of going out and losing 10 pounds at a time.
          Host Haley asked Tarr why he thinks people should join his team: “The company has a great track record. I am able to carry that message and connect the industry. I know what it means to be healthy and make money.”
          When Tarr was asked about working with 90-Day Challenge co-founder, 5 Star Ambassador and Vi Millionaire GJ Reynolds, he said, “When I first met GJ and [his wife] Alita I saw how they truly care about me. They want to know my thoughts and impressions. The environment GJ creates is tremendous. When I have questions for GJ, he is there to answer them. He inspires people.
          Haley added “GJ brings new ideas to you and is able to dissect them.”
          GJ said, “Travis and Holly are extremely busy and have multiple businesses. They understand what hard work and staying a course is all about. They know how to use time valuement to accomplish what is important.”
          GJ also shared, “When I hear people say they do now have time, I laugh and think of the Travis and Holly. They live and show when you choose to elevate your life, you are able to, regardless of how busy you are. They are goal oriented and choose to make the time for what is important. What is more important than transforming your life and those around you? Travis and Holly live this!”
          “Travis and Holly also have excellent leadership with 5 Star Ambassador Bryan Bellville, his brother 3 Star Ambassador Neil Bellville and 2 Star Ambassador Bill Nissen. Great people attract great people!,” said GJ.
