Elite Honors Spotlight: Barry Petrina

Posted: 17 Jul 2015 08:36 AM PDT

Since the launch of the Elite Honors Club and the Go Elite Promotion, North America Team Members have adopted the principles, applied them to their own businesses, and taught others to abide by the same business building structure.

These same Team Members are now convinced that this is the most productive way to build a stable, profitable Synergy business, and see financial results quickly.

See what this Team Member had to say about his rewarding experience so far:

Barry Petrina, New York

"I enrolled in December 2014, and I've since decided to dedicate my life to this company.

At first, I was not productive because doing it 'my way' was not working. I called my upline, Cliff Rosang, who introduced me to Brian Holt.  These two people have been instrumental in helping me.  I can't thank you both enough! By taking their advice and guidance, and having the attitude: 'Alright, show me how to do it the best way,' I became productive and sponsored several excellent distributors and customers. Many thanks to my upline, my customers, my distributors, and everyone at Synergy for making all of this possible.

My wife and I attended the Business Builders Conference in June 2015 where the Elite Honors program was launched, and I didn't know if I could make it, but I knew this new recognition platform was a good idea. It was a good track to run on, so my wife and I went into recruiting mode and we made it! We signed up two new distributors, five customers and achieved the Star title in the same month. Achieving Star qualified us for the Go Elite bonus, which was added to our regular commissions. There is no company I know of that would offer such a great promotion! Synergy pays out 55% in total to the field and then adds bonuses that are not deducted from the Compensation Plan.  They pay it out of their budget! It's incredible! And the fact that Synergy does this helps me show people how great our business is.

We are going for Elite Honors and Go Elite again this month, and just last week my wife spoke to the owner of a restaurant where we were eating, signed him up as a customer and called in his order right on the spot. What a business! Prospects are everywhere!

To be Elite Honors qualified is important. We recommend that everyone goes for it. Do your best and do not to let the task of prospecting scare you. And did you ever think of this?  No matter who you are or what your background is, do you know what it is that all of you can do?  Tell the truth.  But, you must have a good truth to tell.  And with Synergy, we have this good truth. All substantiated, documented, and bulletproof!

Synergy has so many good truths to tell it makes it that much easier to become Elite Honors qualified and achieve your goals.  Everyone can do this, make money, and help a lot of people while you're at it.

Try this experiment:  take a blank piece of paper and a pen, close your eyes, and sign it. Now, look at it.  I'm sure that even with your eyes closed you signed your name pretty close to the way you would with your eyes open, right?

Do you remember when you were in first grade and there were big block letters on large double-lined paper above the blackboard and how hard it was to learn to print them? And how about in second grade when the letters were now script? If someone would have told you then that one day would be able to sign your name with your eyes closed, could you have even imagined it? Probably not, but you just did it!

So, imagine this, one day you will be able to do this business successfully—with your eyes closed. Keep practicing and learning from the teachers in your upline, just like you learned from your teachers in school.

You can do it! Good luck to all of you!"

Leadership Academy 2015 Recap

Posted: 16 Jul 2015 03:23 PM PDT

It was a privilege spending Leadership Academy weekend with this year's talented qualifiers. The Chateaux Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, tucked high into the tree-covered hills, provided the perfect setting for qualifiers to relax, learn and be acknowledged for their successes. We were also lucky enough to have three qualified New Zealand Team Members fly to Utah for the event, and their presence made the event that much more special.

The weekend began over a delicious meal at Windy Ridge Cafe where the Team Members in attendance became acquainted. The first full day kicked off with a morning training session with Synergy's top leaders in North America. From there, the group traveled to Nature's Sunshine Headquarters in Lehi to tour the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation, and learned how Synergy products are developed, tested and then clinically evaluated. That afternoon, they also had the opportunity to give back through the United Way, a non-profit organization with a 100-year history of helping communities. The group assembled 144 art kits, including paint, crayons, coloring books, and more, that will be sent to school children who need an activity to engage in after school or during school holidays. Then it was time to head up to Sundance Mountain Resort's beautiful open-air theater for the Bluebird Cafe Concert Series, which featured today's big names in country music songwriting.

The final day began with an informative and inspiring training session featuring North America General Manager Shane Greer and Synergy Founder Dan Higginson. Lunch was served with some healthy competition at Jupiter Bowl for a fun afternoon. The event closed with an elegant dinner at the Stein Erickson Lodge where Team Members were recognized for their efforts in qualifying for Leadership Academy.

It was impressive to see these leaders' commitment to the business as they shared Synergy's message to those they met throughout the weekend's festivities, and even recruited a few of these new faces as customers and distributors. Thank you to all those who made the effort to attend Leadership Academy! We look forward to our retreat to mountains next summer.
