Direct Selling Association Recognizes NSP and Synergy as Top Company

Posted: 21 Jul 2015 09:36 AM PDT

Synergy WorldWide's parent company, Nature's Sunshine Products (NSP), was recognized by the Direct Selling Association (DSA) as one of the 20 largest direct selling companies in the United States based on 2014 U.S. net sales. 

DSA President, Joseph N. Mariano, presented Nature's Sunshine Chairman and CEO, Gregory L. Probert, with the award at the DSA's annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas.

"This award is a testament to the great work of our tremendous Synergy Team Members and NSP distributors, and the support that our corporate team provides them," Probert said. "We have a 43-year history as an innovator and industry leader in the health and wellness sector, and we're excited to add to that legacy by growing both Nature's Sunshine and Synergy to new and even greater heights."

According to the DSA's 2015 Growth & Outlook Report, the wellness category represents the largest major product group within the direct selling channel, growing from 21.4% in 2007 to 30.1% in 2014.

"It's no surprise that wellness products continue to lead the direct selling channel," Probert added. "And with our focus on innovative, science-based, premium quality products, Synergy WorldWide is well- positioned to take advantage of these trends as more people understand and pursue the benefits of a healthy lifestyle."

"I want to congratulate Nature's Sunshine and Synergy WorldWide not only for their longevity and track record of success, but also for their devotion to their distributors, customers and the DSA," Mariano said. "By working together with industry-leading companies like these, we continue to ensure that ethical business practices and customer satisfaction are priorities in the marketplace."

Why Attend Synergy’s Qualification Events

Posted: 20 Jul 2015 04:38 PM PDT

Every summer, Synergy leaders look forward to an inspiring weekend in picturesque Park City for Leadership Academy. The presentations, activities, food, and company, will renew your love for Synergy WorldWide, and instill the passion necessary to carry out a strong year. Every Synergy WorldWide event is designed to build leaders and fortify belief.

Make attending Synergy's qualification events a high priority and you will be amazed by what follows.

This year's Leadership Academy qualifiers share what qualifying for Leadership Academy did for them and their business:

Eddie Pula, Hawaii

"The event was incredible because we had the opportunity to have our New Zealand leaders there to experience Synergy first hand. In the past couple of years our New Zealand team only had the Synergy experience through me and Pearl Executive Marty Holker. The trainings were amazing! There were many 'Aha!' moments and I can take those lessons to my team. This was my second time attending Leadership Academy and I still felt that I came away having learned a lot. It may have been information I've heard before, but like the old saying goes, 'When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.'"

Chuck Pinnell, British Columbia, Canada

"My wife and I really enjoyed it and found it valuable on a couple fronts. Synergy Founder Dan Higginson's presentation was motivating, inspiring, and comforting, because I understood how much thought he put into the company when he created it. I am confident now that I have long-term stability with Synergy. There was a relaxed nature to the event. There wasn't a lot of hype or false motivation. I appreciated the down-to-earth, real nature of it. The people with Synergy are real and easy to talk to, and everyone is very helpful."

Brent Burnett, Utah

"I went with a few members from my team and Leadership Academy really created a fire within them. They really understand their 'Why?' After the event, we've already seen a lot of excitement with new leads. It was nice to have both young and old people from my team there because they gave me a fresh perspective on marketing Synergy products. Talking with this diverse group was really eye-opening for me. Leadership Academy is an event I want all of my people to qualify for so they can understand how they need to act as a leader and what they can do as a leader. It plants a seed within them that will get them to the next level. It's a great opportunity to meet the corporate staff in person and to learn that you can't help yourself if you aren't helping other people."

Margie Dean, Utah

"I received top-notch training in a beautiful environment. I loved Stew's Go-Giver presentation and it was a great reminder that we will find our greatest success when we serve others. I loved learning more about the Elite Honors program and the path it gives us to follow so that we'll have financial success. I loved seeing the Hughes Research Center where we are continuously researching to improve our products. I enjoyed meeting other Team Members and learning how they run their businesses. There was learning every day, but there was also time to relax. It was very well planned."
