“There has been a lot of discussion as to why folks decide to join network marketing. Most start, it seems, because of the amazing products. Then, in my case, I discovered unwavering integrity of the organization (Corporate leadership) my supportive up-line, and what great teacher/mentors they are. Even with all those great positives, what do most people want to know before signing up with any network marketing company?
Can “I” make money here? I found that I could, do and can make BIG MONEY. Within the first 4 months, I was making more monthly, than I had with my previous company in the previous 4 years.
You are probably asking yourself, “Why would she stay so long in a company where she was earning such a mediocre amount?” To be honest, I was having fun and I never thought I could do better than I was already!
Little did I know what a difference TEAM makes—UP-LINE makes—TEACHING AND TRAINING makes—COMPANY makes—COMPENSATION PLAN makes—RECOGNITION makes, ATTAINABLE BONUSES & TRIPS makes and when it all works together, and I do my part, the checks start to increase—far beyond I could every imagine!
Eleven years ago, my husband suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke that left him permanently disabled. We went from two incomes to NO INCOME overnight! We accrued a great deal of credit card debt just to keep our home and pay bills. That was our financial situation when I joined Tavala.
With each rising rank with Tavala, my checks grew as did my confidence and joy. I was invited to speak on the Corporate calls and share how I was growing my business! Tavala encourages Brand Partners at every level to do and be their best and recognizing achievements, to stimulate growth and enrichment.
Now at my current level of Lifestyle Bonus of $750 (every 4 weeks and on top of bonuses and commissions), I was able to pay off all the credit card bills accrued during that time. With those gone, I was able to put to bed an $18,000 loan we had to take out to make our downstairs bathroom handicap accessible.
With all that behind us, we are rebuilding what catastrophic illness tried (and did, for a time take away)—our financial security! Every month, I add more than $1,000 to our savings account and that scary paycheck to paycheck feeling is finally gone! THAT is what successful network marking, with a prosperous thriving company is like for me!”
I have been thinking of statistics of WOMEN in NETWORK MARKETING and recently came upon a blog from Mark Januszewski, aka Mark J. or the “Worlds Laziest Networker”, (http://worldslaziestnetworker.com) that I’d like to share parts of. Please feel free to share this blog as well as contact us. We’d love to hear your thoughts and insights. In quotations you’ll see Mark’s comments….with MY comments in blue. By the way, we met Mark J. through his incredible “Go 90 Grow” online course for network marketers several years ago.
(As you’ll see….Network Marketing IS in a WOMEN’s DNA!)
IT’S A PROBLEM
“For some reason guys and MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) companies just don’t get it.
83% of the checks in MLM are cashed by women, according to the DSA.
83%!! (OK so this visual to the left says 82% of women in the US who make $100,000 or more did it through this industry!)
Do guys feel intimidated? Threatened?
You see it with companies all the time…the “Founders” are introduced and with rare exception, four or five guys roll out on stage. (Have you been with a company where this happens on stage? I certainly have!)
The audience goes nuts. I remember sitting there thinking, really, how stupid can we be as a group?
The world is the same way…since men “took over” in the dark ages….which I could argue we are still in.
Prior to that women were revered above men….and any networker who thinks -instead of copies- figures this out quickly.
See, for 1000s of years, it was “mother earth” …the giver of life…men were the protectors and women were the foundation of life.
And isn’t that what you’re trying to do with your business?
Who is better at growing things than the primary caretaker?
Until some do-gooder group with nothing better to do got laws passed, [don’t ask me why], MLM applications had ‘Occupation” on the application.
# 1 success group? Teachers
# 2 success group? Moms
Let’s face it, between teachers and Moms…. and that’s a lot of women!
MLM is a teaching business and Moms are in the business of teaching their kids life skills on a daily basis.
And they are better at it than men. Period. [don’t sweat this; if I learned how, so can you. HINT: watch the women teach]
How can your new teammates successfully do what needs to be done if they don’t know how?
Differences between Men and Women in this industry! Notice how we differ in communication.
GUYS: This is going to be huge! Go talk to people so you don’t miss out!
GALS: Here’s what we need to do to get you started. [notice the word that is inclusive, “we”]
GUYS: Motivational speeches – do all guys think they are Napoleon Hill or Tony Robbins? LMAO
GALS: Hands on support, simple “show and tell”….just like they do with their kids. I’ll stop here, it’s an endless list….let me get to the meat of the discussion.
DEPTH BUILDS DEPTH
Women have intuitively deeper feelings, more depth…..while guys deny their feelings….. and everybody knows it’s a burning desire that forges authentic commitment, not predictions about the future.
So I always, given the choice, recruited and promoted women into key roles…women crushed the role, guys did not.
And then….just when I thought I had done enough to carry this so simple truth to the MLM community, I was taught yet another priceless lesson…by a woman, of course.
I promise the “Secret” Hill writes about….the key that has opened a life second to none….is stated over and over and over….many ways in this dynamic woman.
Here’s a second promise; until you get that key, no tools, speeches, efforts or seminars will make a difference.
So…yeah, I’m challenging you to view this interview below as many times as it takes….it’s right there, what you are seeking is easily spelled out.
25 minutes will change the lives of the open-minded…..while surfing the web for the magic solution to your business will keep your life the same.
Meet Kimmy Everett Brooke, a woman who Dave and I have actually worked with in the past. Hear what she has to share in her interview with Mark J. I agree with Mark, it really is worth the 25 minutes to view. (OK 27:02 to be exact) Enjoy.
Mark concludes with: It all begins with a burning desire. Feelings are what add the “burn” and without the burn fighting discouragement and small minds becomes the job.
What is YOUR burning desire to create in this lifetime? What drives you? If you have never imagined yourself involved in Network Marketing would you be open to taking a look?
If you are already in the industry are you interested in taking a look with what we are doing/creating? We have everything in place to help the ‘newbie’ as well as the seasoned network marketer enjoy success.
Currently Tavala is ending the first phase of company growth called the FORMULATION phase, and moving into quickly into CONCENTRATION. We believe in 6-9 months we’ll be in the MOMENTUM phase, which is where rapid growth occurs and the big checks are earned.
Thanks to Dave’s close work with the Tavala corporate team, we have a system that is universally known as the TAVALA RHYTHM. To learn more please email us at info@DaveandJoy.com or call 802-846-7530.
What are you looking for MORE in your life? Is it worth exploring? Let’s chat.
It is with pleasure that I embark on a new journey of highlighting powerful, talented and compassionate women (of all ages and backgrounds) each week. Although at this time I don’t know what I’ll call it, it will be about highlighting Women Each Week that stand out and deserve to be highlighted….for their talents, their heart and contribution and for simply sharing about themselves with honesty and vulnerability.
Today I highlight Stephanie Ortiz. Stephanie is on our Tavala team, which is how we met, but it was her Facebook posts and sharing of ideas and inspiration that caught my attention. Yesterday I learned she is 27 years old… wise beyond her years! Meet Stephanie.
“Hi my name is Stephanie Ortiz I am a young proud Hispanic woman living my dreams.
I have an Associate’s degree in Graphic Design and a Bachelor’s degree in Web Development. Soon after graduating college I realized that working a nine-to-five job was not going to work for me because I had two young boys who needed my love and attention so I started doing freelance graphic and web design.
Even though I was doing what I loved, I felt a void that needed to be filled. I wanted to do more with my life then just make money, I wanted to make a difference. I was focusing so hard on getting clients, without success, that I started to lose the passion for what I was doing.
I fell on hard times and ended up working in a warehouse doing hard labor checking and packing large appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, stoves and dishwashers. I was the only woman working in that warehouse because all other women had quit the first day after seeing how hard the work was but I didn’t have that luxury. I needed the money and I couldn’t find any clients for my web design business.
I don’t tell this story to get pity. This was a life changing experience for me. This is when I realized that I had what it took to succeed. If I was able to endure the kind of physical and mental distress to make someone else money, why wasn’t I able to endure this for myself?
I quit that job after having to deal with a few cases of sexual harassment and I made a promise to myself that no matter how hard times got I wouldn’t work in a warehouse again.
I went through severe depression and anxiety because I felt like l was failing in all aspects of life. I felt that I was letting down my friend and family. When I began to have constant dark thoughts about suicide I talked to a doctor. I poured out my heart to him and he gave me a referral to see a psychiatrist and scheduled the closest available appointment which was in two months. TWO MONTHS!
I was in such a severe depression that I didn’t feel as though I had 2 months left in me to keep pushing. While browsing in YouTube that afternoon I ran across an 8-hour long positive affirmation sleep hypnosis session. I began listening to it every night and till this day I credit that video for getting me back on my feet.
I began on a journey of self development. I started reading books in self love and I started to connect with more positive people on social media.
I began taking online courses on starting a business. I realized that the reason I was not finding clients was not because I wasn’t good rather it was because I didn’t know anything about business or marketing.
I started following great marketers and influential people on YouTube and listening to their speeches. This is where I discovered that this was what I was passionate about. I wanted to help people, I wanted to change lives, and I wanted to give people hope. I wanted to inspire people with not only my words but with my actions.
I knew that I was unhealthy so I started to make changes in my diet soon after starting my self development journey and THIS is when I found Tavala. I began using the Tavala Trim which helped me propel my weight loss journey forward and dramatically improve my health.
Finding Tavala really inspired me to use the business as an avenue to help and inspire people. I am proud every time someone takes the leap to start their weight loss journey with Tavala because I know that it works and I’m making a difference.
Perhaps the journey I recently went through was to make this discovery- to align with my passion of helping and inspiring people take control of their own lives. I don’t think I could be as powerful a coach or leader without having gone through some dark times myself.
In the future I hope to become a motivational speaker to reach massive audiences because I want to show people that anything is possible if they set their mind to it and keep pushing forward no matter what obstacles get in their way.
The Tavala Trim helped me begin my weight loss journey and also lifted my emotional spirits. It has for many other people too.
I still have a passion for my web design work and I’ve been told my work is not only affordable, but user friendly and extremely professional. If you are looking for any work with graphics or web design, please reach out to me. 559-351-9462 or by email at email@example.com.
I have a passion and love building my Tavala business and enjoy inspiring and coaching customers and team members to reach their goals- of both improving their health as well as their ‘wealth’.
As a proud Hispanic woman, I am also passionate about impacting my culture as there is a lot of pain, obesity and diabetes in our culture, even more than the general population in the USA. Being bi-lingual is an asset and I’m happy to work with, translate and develop support groups in this arena ….in fact a goal is to impact the health and opportunity among our culture.
My family fuels my passions and with Tavala (and my web design) I am able to work from home and to be there for my family.”
As I mentioned above, It is with pleasure to introduce you to Stephanie Ortiz. Her talents are many. If you are interested in a web site design, setting up a blog, creating graphic design work or online marketing, reach out to Stephanie. If you join her Tavala Team you’ll be well supported!
Dave and Joy/ Global Leaders with Tavala
We’re thrilled to have Stephanie Ortiz on our Tavala Team!
In their own words….well, actually in “Teri’s words”!
“In life so many people have their good times and bad times. Some people struggle with finances, careers, etc. but for us it was our weight loss struggle that had us singing the blues. On the positive note, it is what ultimately brought us together.
My life and my husband Jim’s was no exception. Throughout both our lives we have gained the same weight over and over again and then some. You know, you lose 20 lbs. but end up gaining 25, and it goes on and on, especially as we age.
I feel like I have dieted the majority of my life and experienced what many do as a roller coaster ride…. and then there is Jim’s story with weight gain- true….his was different than mine. Jim had been a collegiate athlete playing college football! He didn’t have an emotional eating issue like I had when we met but he had gained weight as he slowed down his activity in the gym or in working out.
I’ll never forget when we met. It was 2008 and to our amazement we were both involved in a network marketing company which just happened to be a weight loss company. Being overweight, no matter the reason, can make a person get depressed and discouraged! Can you relate? As an example Jim would go to the doctor and be told he needed to go on a diet and start the whole process over again and his -and ultimately OUR -life would change based on ‘diet’. OMG!
Flashback to the year 2001… Jim decided that he was tired of his stressful -yet successful- business life as an insurance specialist and financial planner and told wife at the time, (no,not me!) that he was moving onto something more he was more passionate about that can utilize his skills and relationships and also where he could be his own boss. Guess what? Network Marketing found him and he was a natural. Customers/Clients/ believed in Jim and wanted what he had discovered…. a business/company that helped people get healthy and guess what? Lose weight!!!! To say Jim was a success with this company is an understatement!
Many say he was called the ‘Golden Goose’ as whatever he touched turned to gold. Jim built a huge organization of 150,000 people but ended up selling it to his upline when he and his wife got divorced. The positive side of this is once you have experienced success in this industry, you know it is possible.
Even though we believed in this industry and wanted to improve our health (and yes, lose weight) timing is crucial. In March of 2017 a friend (Jennifer Dillon) from our previous company reached out to share a new product for weight loss and energy. She told me it was a thermogenic drink, boosted the metabolism, gave energy and focus and also helps suppress cravings and the appetite. Are you kidding? This is something both Jim and I have been looking for all along. Easy-peesy- She reached out to ME, not Jim as let’s just say he would not have been open after trying so many products over the years….including with our previous company.
I began using the Tavala TRIM sample that Jennifer shared. She was afraid to talk to Jim, as I was – why? Well, we had 10 other products that were supposed to do the same thing in our cupboard. All of them were not palpable. Jennifer knowing me and knowing that I would be more open and asked me if I wanted more energy and lose weight. Of course I said yes! I purchased the Trim and started my healthy journey with Tavala. Within a week I had lost five pounds and another week I had lost ten pounds.
Jim asked me what I was doing I told him I was just walking the dogs. I must admit for the first time in my life I didn’t have to diet to lose weight and it was easy! I could eat a piece of pizza or eat a piece of pie without gaining the weight back. TRIM delivers! Cravings were gone!
D-day was April 1, 2017 for Jim- I wanted my husband back! Not only had he gained weight but he was showing signs of dementia. I then (reluctantly) told Jim about the Trim and he literally told me “if this doesn’t work he would give Jennifer a piece of his mind!” I gave Jim a whole stick of Trim wanting to make sure he felt something. Boy did he feel it!
This product is potent and gives you energy on day 1….Not only did he have energy but his mental focus was like nothing I could ever remember before. He was so excited he wanted to go lift weights with his new found energy. I reminded him about the bursitis in his right elbow. He said “I will grin and bear it”.
Tavala has other products that have supported our health but we won’t go into it here. We encourage you to contact us at 435-619-1182 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In summary- we have lost weight. We have energy and focus with our Trim drink. We have reduced our aches and pains in our bodies with the Quantum Relief Strips.

In her ‘own words’
Weight has always been a huge part of mine, and my families lives. I’ve watched many family members gain and lose hundreds of pounds throughout our lifetime. So in December of 03 after reaching and all time highest weight of 298 lbs, I decided to “do it”.
I had the original gastric bypass surgery. I lost over a 150 lbs. in a year-ish time. The Quick Fix was over right? Heck no, not even close…… I had numerous life threatening health complications as a direct result of the surgery. So you can imagine my surprise 15 years later when I had gained a good amount of the weight back. I was actually reconsidering having a revision done on my original bypass surgery, when my sister from Las Vegas told me about “some products” that her friend was using and having great weight loss success.
She sent me a month of a few different products and after losing 16 pounds in a few short weeks I was “tickled pink” and knew I needed to get more of “that”. As a best way to continue purchasing the products on a single mom’s budget, I signed up as a distributor with the company. I knew nothing of MLM, and the little I did know- was I was not interested in it . I had been a licensed cosmetologist for over 15 years at that point, and had no interest in doing anything other than that.
Well I’ve always been super social and ran in many different circles. So the business just kind of happened naturally for me. After helping most of my friends and family members I branched out and used Facebook and social media to help others across the world. Fast forward three months and my network marketing career was in full swing. I was able to walk away from a salon I was working full-time at and was on the road to becoming a network marketing professional. Not long after I was at the top of my game traveling from state-to-state regularly doing meetings for my team all over the United States, and loving every minute of it.
You see, I have always “loved people” and “making sure they felt included” and felt “part of”….. it has just been ingrained in me. I can remember family parties when I was in elementary school sitting at the window and waiting for the “next car” to pull up and running outside as fast as I could to welcome people and help them get in the house. I remember my mom saying “Char-Lee, at least let them get through the front door”.
I also had sales and sharing in my in my blood from early on. I can remember going through my neighborhood and picking up rocks from my neighbor’s front yards, then knocking at their front door and explaining to them why they should purchase these rocks from me as they were a perfect match to the rocks they already had. Little did I know they were ‘on to me’ and they just loved me coming by to visit.They always bought their rocks from me, and enjoyed my company.
After almost 5 years with my previous company the rug got pulled out from under “us”. With a simple email we were all informed that they had gone “retail”. Realizing what that meant, that me, nor my massive team would no longer be making any money. Talk about a punch to the gut. I had pretty much decided I was going to go back to a salon full-time and hang up my MLM hat. I just didn’t have it in me to “do it all again” and be fearful of “what if” again.
My mom, and all her wisdom, pointed out to me that she truly thought network marketing was my calling, and that perhaps I should try another company. And that she felt that I was made for network marketing and that it was a true passion of mine. She suggested I do my homework and find a new company. I knew this couldn’t be something taken lightly, as I was looking for a forever home in the MLM industry. I never wanted to be “that girl” who was with a new company every time people turned around. And so the process began.
I requested samples from over 10 companies. And I believe the 7th sample I tried was Tavala. I just knew that I knew this was it. I move pretty fast and within 2 days of joining I had 10 of my peeps involved with me. I had spoken to my upline -her upline- his upline and several people from the corporate team including Tavala’s CEO Allan Davis. I was convinced, this was it.
Everyone has gone above and beyond to help and to reassure us that we are in a safe place. They’ve also acknowledged our fears and help to put them to rest. After having some quick weight loss success (of over 15 pounds in approximately my first 23 days taking the Tavala Trim) I definitely had my fire back. And after getting paid the first Friday after joining the company, and every Friday thereafter, I knew that I had found the magic sauce.
How exciting again!! I am losing weight, feeling great, making money, and even ranked advancing to Palladium in record time (within less than a month of joining the company.) How cool is that, the company rewarded me with an iPad for an efforts, my team members are ranked advancing also and getting awarded as well. Nothing better then barely being able to fall asleep at night and then excitedly waking up the next morning ready to do it all again.
This crazy train is running full steam ahead and there’s no stopping Char-Lee’s Angel’snow. So so so grateful to have found a forever home for me and my tribe. As we are a package deal. Grateful to still be able to work from home though my now 18 and 20 year old kids probably wish I would have gone to work very, very full time very, very far away from home. LOL just kidding they both love me being home and available for them.
I am honored to be able to help my friends and family and their friends and family and their friends and family lose weight feel great again as well as make a strong solid income on top of it. After all, isn’t “helping others” what this is all about?? So if I can ever EVER help you with anything, I mean anything- I’m only a call or message away. And in my signature words “love you” mean it Char-lee from Chicago XOXOX smooches.”
“Join the TEAM that has FUN and Makes Things Happen! Without question, you’d be in good hands joining Char-Lee! We’re thrilled to have Char-Lee join Tavala and our team! Her positive vibe and personality uplift everyone she touches. Having she and her team have fast success with Tavala their first month is inspiring!!! The sky is the limit and without question we’ll have fun on the 7-night November Caribbean Cruise that she and her team will be joining us on.”
“About two years before I joined Tavala, I had entered a very dark period due to some personal issues. I had gained more than 45 lbs. and pretty much never left my house. I went to my doctor for help and he gave me his canned response, “I do not prescribe for appetite control.” I was hurt and angry that he did not hear my desperation.
As life would have it, a colleague from another business offered me free samples from a new company which had only been open for two months. He said they were helping people get healthy!
He sent me three samples but after just one Trim Stick, I called him back and said, “Sign me up. This stuff works!”
That day I was back on my Ketogenic Diet that had evaded me for almost two years. Both my mood and energy were up and by the end of the first week, I had lost 14 lbs. I know that sounds impossible but combining Tavala Trim with the Ketogenic diet is synergistic magic!
So, this is my new passion. (TAVALA) I love it. It has given me my life back. If you are not a carboholic, you do not understand what it is like to have your life controlled by sugar and simple carbohydrates. Well, I am free! To give you a little backstory, I have to back eleven years. In 2007, My husband had a massive hemorrhagic stroke at the age of 59. We went from two incomes to NO INCOME!
He went on Social Security but at age 55, I had a long wait. In the meantime, we used all our savings, our 401k’s and sold off what we could.
We have survived 11 years— my husband is still severely disabled but a happy guy who loves God and his grandchildren and I have been his caregiver, 24/7, ever since. 🤗 We used EVERYTHING we had to stay in our house and meet our bills, as money was scarce. Insurance doesn’t cover all the needs of a family when catastrophic illness strikes.
I thought I would try a home-based business, since Paul could not be left alone for long periods of time. Before finding Tavala I tried another Direct Sales Company that cost me $1,000 to join. I didn’t make any money over four years. (My taxman called it a hobby)😤
My one year anniversary with Tavala came and went in a flash! I am having so much fun and meeting such great people along the way—Corporate, included! The Credit Cards that kept us alive for the past eleven years are paid off and gone!
In this past year, I was also able to retire an $18,000 line of credit with the help of Tavala! I cannot say enough good things about this company and what it means to our family—to be in the BLACK again!
Tavala is known as the Transformation Company. I have lost 60 pounds to date and my daughter Audra has lost 66 pounds. To say Tavala changed our lives is an understatement! “
“We are thrilled to have Darlene Carson on our team. She is a supportive leader and team player. We trust her insights in how to develop the team and love having her part of the leadership here with Tavala. It was fabulous meeting her on the first annual Tavala Paradise Cruise and we look forward to experiencing many vacation destinations together! Thanks for all you do, Darlene.”
It’s our absolute pleasure introducing you to a woman who LOVES to inspire others and help them in life. Meet Coliese Hart…..
IN HER OWN WORDS…
“I have always been the person that does what it takes to survive. I have never been the person to let fear hold me back.
My husband and I and 4 children live a very simple life. Working on ranches, welding, mechanic, mail delivery, fish hatchery, promotional items, construction and even some cattle artificial insemination to make life go smoothly! I was taught to work hard and life will be easy. (NOT) I have always wanted to lose weight as 4 children left my body a bit different and my energy level was at an all time LOW-but I carried forward. Several years ago a friend sent me a sample of a product that would help me lost weight and gain energy… so of course I tried it and shared with everyone.
That company taught me the dos…. and the DONT’S of Network Marketing!!! I had a 5 year sprint with that company and made some good money. We were the top of the top, money, enrollers, doing network marketing full time and changing lives. We even built lifelong friendship and seriously found our spot in life…. changing people’s lives for health, wealth and lifestyle… PERFECT FIT for what I love to do!
Then my world came crashing down. The company turned to retail and took my entire 5 years of work with them. I could have stayed with them and continue to promote the company, but I would have taken all of my down lines money and left them with nothing… while still selling products I believed in. That was a Deal breaker for me. Integrity was everything. I live in a rural area with barely 15000 people and if I had done that my name would have been mud.
I went back to work…. punching a time clock building someone else dreams. My husband, Travis, went back to welding (which absolutely makes him physically ill with the dirty environment) and we begin our journey again. Travis is working 3 jobs and me 2 and we are just trying to survive… Not sure why I had not lost hope but I did not…
I never did give up on Network Marketing and after shopping for the ‘next thing’…and many samples and hours on the phone with many companies, I could not find that fire I once had. Maybe I was pouting but it was not there.
Coliese and Buck
Then someone introduced me to Tavala (honestly, all the while I was literally rolling my eyes because every company has the same key phrases!)
All I needed was a product that did what it said it did and a company that did what it said it would do.
Honesty and transparency was all I was looking for, however I had not made up my mind to go all in again. Tried the Tavala TRIM product…. Yep-it had “knock my socks off energy” and I broke a plateau in my weight! Then I tried it on a few friends and their reaction was the same.
Here’s some GREAT advise that I took myself- Get a hold of your 3 closest friends that have tried everything with you for weight loss & energy and hope that we all can get on board together AGAIN!
One of my go-to told me “Coliese when you go all in and make your move I will know it and I will be on board!” And that was the switch I needed.
I finally found my passion again.. What I realized is what I was good at is loving humans… and sharing products that work. But most importantly I was good at loving HUMANS no matter what or how they lived or So here I am. I am at a weight I am very comfortable with and I have quit the 8-5 to build my Legacy. Travis is working until I can hit some financial marks that we can be comfortable at. One thing is for sure I believe network marketing is the way to go … if and when you find the product you can believe in!
I have no training… just life lessons and its taught me to help others and everything takes care of itself.”
“It’s such a pleasure sharing Coliese’s story! If I were looking for an opportunity to join or a product to believe in I’d join her! To say that we are excited to have her on our team is a massive understatement. We are beyond thrilled and adore the people she is bringing to Tavala, both as customers and members.”
Now your question may be: Which Tavala Team do I join?
I remember years ago when I was a newbie in the industry and certainly not what I would call a network marketing professional like I am today. I remember thinking that it was rude to consider joining with anyone BUT the person who shared the product or opportunity with me.
Like many today-they still think it is “right” to join with the person who first told them about the opportunity or introduced them to the company’s product. NOT SO! Luckily more and more people have become far more savvy in the industry and know that shopping for the PERFECT TEAM (like finding the ideal company to join) is more important than aligning with their friend…simply to help them out or keep the friendship in tact.
Last year we had someone tell us it was the WORST decision of her entire life to join with the team she is currently on, but she was almost bullied to do it as to not upset a couple of friendships. She knows she should have joined our team in the best interest for her business and experience and growth with Tavala. Enough said.
So….if you are looking to join Tavala first of all congratulations.
It’s a GREAT decision and you’ll love the products and the company.
DO, however, make the best decision for YOU when signing on the dotted line. WHAT TEAM WILL YOU JOIN?
Are the people on the team you are looking at trustworthy? Do they have integrity? Do they have a culture on their team that you align with? Are they professional or casual with their business? Will they be at Tavala 1, 2 or more years or do they jump from company to company with new opportunities or fads?
Do you LIKE them? Do they have training in place to help your business grow? Do they have a duplication system and team training on an ongoing basis?
All of these are great questions to ask and we encourage you to ask them. Much like if you were joining a corporation and applying for a job, you’d want to make sure that you will be happy with your decision…after all, this industry is about relationship building and hopefully, you’ll be with Tavala for many years to come!
We have an entire list of over 20 reasons to join our TAVALA team and we’ll happily share with you if you are interested. We don’t ‘sell’…. we want this to be the right decision for both parties- you and us- and we’ll be 100% honest with you. One thing I will say is if you are looking for support in the way of a duplication and training system, weekly training, zoom training, regional trainings, assistance with 3-way calls, mentorship etc. we have all of those things in place. We think they are crucial for the new person starting out but also for the seasoned networking professional who wants to be on the fast track and simply hit GO!
Congratulations on taking a look at TAVALA and then deciding that Tavala IS the company you wish to partner with.
We are confident that you’ll love what you experience and find Tavala is not only a ‘home- a real family’ but also a great opportunity to create income and help others built teams and ultimately improve their ‘tomorrows’.
If you’re about to join Tavala no doubt you’ve found that Tavala has many unique qualities and is different than most network marketing companies out there. You’ll also find because Tavala is unique and different, that there will be far less resistance when you share the opportunity and products. A couple of ways they are unique and there is less, if ANY resistance is that there is no joining fee- ever!
Also customers and members pay the same low price….and we get paid 10% MORE on our customers.
Last but certainly not least, is you are not required to be on a monthly auto-ship order (though most are, due to loving the products and wanting to have samples on hands) but it is NOT a requirement. In fact, your customers order can qualify you to earn a check, even if you are not currently active!
Really? Yes, Really! I remember being on vacation years ago at the onset of my network marketing career and I forgot to place an order that month. Honestly, I think it was because funds were so tight that I couldn’t find the necessary dollars to place the order. As a result, my monthly check was never received…that’s right. The $1500, which by the way was a huge check back in those days, was never delivered.
As long as you have 1 active customer with a 25 point order (think 1 box of TRIM or 1 pack of Quantum Relief Strips) then you’ll never ever miss a check. Amen!
The reasons above are great reasons but don’t even touch upon the MONEY and I don’t know about you but we came to Tavala to collect the SUPER CHECKS! (Ask us about the lifestyle bonuses that begin at $350 and go up to $2000 every 28-days….as well as the 70% payout on the first 3 levels, and the large bonus pools and unlimited width you can build in the Uni-level Compensation plan)….etc.
So, this is all great and dandy, but how do you begin?
What is the absolute BEST way to get started?
What is the most important question you can ask?
This could be one of the most important steps. Make sure that you align with the right team for you. Do your homework and check out and see who the leaders in Tavala are and what training they have in place for their teams. Will they be there to support you and your team? Do they work Tavala exclusively or do they balance 2-3 other “MLM” opportunities? Will they be around 1 year from now? I know many times people feel bad if they don’t join with the first person who shared the opportunity with them but heck, this is a business, and hopefully a long term partnership between you and your up line sponsors and support team.
How you begin is most likely how your team will begin. The absolute best and fastest way to grow your business is by starting with one of the Builder Boxes. For a low investment of only $399.99 you will receive product for yourself and 40 samples to hand out to your potential customers and partners. (This ex. is with the TRIM Builder Box)
Think about it, it is much easier to say TRY this -rather than BUY this! It is also very easy to ask someone who they may know who would be interested in more energy, a boost in their metabolism and losing weight (if the discussion is the TRIM Builder Box). Some people sell the samples for $9.99 and Tavala even has an App that you can use for this purpose, but in our opinion if you are looking for the FASTEST growth and duplication, buying the Builder Box and sampling for free will get you up and running and in a positive cash flow within weeks- or less. This is not to say that you can’t have success starting out with a smaller box called the Alpha Box for only $199.99 box that also 16 samples…. but if you are looking to make it big with Tavala, you’ll do best by getting up and started quickly.
Tavala is at the brink of momentum and leaders are joining daily. Get YOUR slice of the market by coming in strong!
3. Becoming a product OF the product is extremely beneficial and something we personally suggest. Most leaders also agree that purchasing the Experience Pack (One of each of the products, minus the Tamanu Organics, a 4-system skin care system) is the way to go. Then they can also share from personal experience. The cost for the Experience Pack is only $259.99.
4. And here is where things get easily identified. Whose Team you join is important – if not crucial! You’ll want to use a duplication system to have effective follow up with proper distribution of the samples and customers … and if done correctly (not selling) the money will show up….and it will come quickly! Have you ever heard that the money is in the follow up?
Does the team you are joining have this in place and if so, do you have access to it? Do they have weekly team training, Social Media Groups like Facebook? Do they share their You-Tube video trainings and blogs with their teams? Are they available for 3-Way calls? Do they CARE about you or will you be just a number in their organization?
5. Whose team you join ultimately is up to you. We have seen too many people take this lightly and join with their Uncle Joe or best friend Sally out of obligation. If your reason for joining Tavala is only for a fun hobby then it may not matter who you join with- BUT if creating a large weekly income and ultimately creating effective duplication and a large team… then joining with the right leaders IS important. This way you can all succeed and celebrate together!
Perhaps you’ve found a leader you’d like to work with…. and this question comes has come up. Are they simply out there being masterful recruiters with a back-splash training for all? Will they be available for you and 3-way calls / intimate team training or are they too busy in their recruitment process?
And this brings this to us and OUR TEAM!

I belong to a group on Facebook called The Game of Network Marketing. There are thousands of GROUPS you can join on Facebook that revolve around Network Marketing or Direct Sales but in my opinion most are nothing more than PITCHING POSTS trying to get someone into your business. Not so with this group. This group is authentic and offers so many valuable tips from those in the industry who genuinely want to share. You also have to agree to follow their guidelines or you will be removed from the group. I like that!This is the description of the group : The Game of Networking description
Almost everything in life can be fun. It is all in your perspective. Even things such as networking can be turned into a more important serious game such as chess. Chess takes a ton of strategy. Everything worthwhile takes strategy. That includes relationships and networking. My favorite part about networking is that the way you TRULY win the game is to help others. Selfish people don’t WIN in networking.
What’s the great factor for determining your happiness? It surely isn’t money or celebrities wouldn’t be having meltdowns so often. Relationships are the greatest determination of happiness. The more we feel connected to others, the better we feel about ourselves and the life we lead. We feel purpose, we feel fulfilled, we feel loved. These relationships and feelings lead us to realize our greatest potential and thus leads us to happiness.
Harvard Psychiatrist George Valliant directed a study from 1972 to 2004. He believed that maintaining warm relationships with friends and family was the key to happiness and success and wanted to prove it. Warm relationships to me represents having a network of close friends. For the study, he worked with 268 male Harvard undergraduates from the classes of 1938-1940 (now well into their 90’s) for 75 years. He collected data on various aspects of their lives at regular intervals over the 75 years. The conclusions he found were universal.
Not only did Valliant discover that his focus on warm relationships was warranted, he ended up placing even more importance on this factor than he had previously. Valliant notes that the 58 men who scored highest on the measurements of “warm relationships” earned an average of $141,000 a year more during their peak salaries (between ages 55-60) than the 31 men who scored the lowest. My first point is that having a network of strong or warm relationships will increase your pay but the more important point is that those relationships/connections are the key to happiness.
“Joy is connection,” Valliant says. “The more areas in your life you can make connection, the better.” Humans crave feeling supported, valued and connected. Connection is the link that makes us feel supported and valued.
The study found strong relationships to be far and away the strongest predictor of life satisfaction. In terms of career satisfaction, feeling connected to one’s work was far more important than making money or achieving traditional success.
“The conclusion of the study, not in a medical but in a psychological sense, is that connection is the whole shooting match,” says Valliant. If relationships equal happiness then SUCCESS is NETWORKING.
Here is one question that was posted in the group the other day and it got ME thinking.
If you had to choose one improvement you’d love to make from the list below (in relation to where you’re currently at in your business), what would you pick?
1. Rank Advance 2. Create a higher level of income 3. Become a higher skilled Network Marketer 4. Help your team to become stronger and stay with you for life 5. Create more product sales 6. Create more duplication 7. Develop a strong online presence 8. Become a key person of Influence in the industry.
You know it is a good question when it gets you thinking. Initially I wanted to say ALL OF THE ABOVE, but I ended up choosing #8. In reality, in order to become a key person of influence in the industry you would have to have to be dialed into #1-7. You WOULD rank advance and help others on the team to rank advance and create more product sales as well. In addition you would also have to become more skilled as a Network Marketer and the obvious is you would earn more income as your team and business expands. When you care about your team and create a feeling of inclusiveness and FUN, they will be loyal to you and your leadership.
In order to build depth and width in your network marketing business it makes sense that developing a strong online presence would be important as it would be a great way to reach more people and keep those on your team engaged and in the loop.
If you had to answer the question above, what would YOUR ANSWER be? We’d love to know.
