Meet Cindy Burton- “How God Brought Tavala into my Life!”

Meet Cindy Burton – Thank you, Cindy, for sharing your story on how Tavala and the Tavala Trim came into your life.  It is inspiring and life changing!

                                 In Cindy’s own words!

“Well I finally decided to share my story of how God brought Tavala into my life.

I have lupus which is hard to cope with most days. I was in a very depressed state of mind due to not being able to work any more, not feeling like getting up and doing anything productive, etc. etc.

I found myself sitting in a dark living room just staring and getting more depressed every day. One Sunday I went to church even though I really didn’t want to but that is just what we do. Our pastor spoke about turning over to God the negative things that control our minds and let God handle it.

What controlled my mind at that time was my weight and the way I was feeling all the time. I turned it over to God and asked him to show me and bring me out of this horrible state I was in.

Three days later, Darlene Carson, a long time friend posted a photo of her weight loss on Facebook. I knew in my heart that God just gave me my answer. Darlene had tried twice to get me to try the product and sign up as a member but I told her “NO” (very emphatically).





I joined Tavala and bought the Builder’s Box because that is what Darlene suggested I do. I have lost 38 lbs. since September 9, 2017. I no longer sit in a dark living room all day. I’m not depressed and I’m building a great business that is going to help us financially.  Plus I plan on going on the Tavala cruise in November.

Above is my before/after photo for now. It is changing daily at this point.”

Here is my Ideal Distributor…Who is Yours?

So you’re involved in the profession of Network Marketing? Great.  Good decision.

When you began did you sit down and think about the IDEAL person you want to attract to your team or did you simply tell EVERYONE who was within 5 feet of you or in your data base?

If you did not consciously decide who you are looking for perhaps you have a team that has a variety of people :  from the Wanda Whiners, the  Debbie Downers, the Ingredient and Product Gurus to the mlm junkies that jump from company to company- to the true entrepreneur who is committed to building a team and makes things happen.

Without focus or better yet, being clear on who you want to work with you’ll most likely end up with some of every kind of personality.  However CAN hone in what you desire on your team by doing a few simple things.

So grab a pen and make your list.

Here is something I’d love to share that has worked for us.

If you aren’t clear on who your IDEAL distributor (or member, or rep) looks like…. get quiet and LIST the ideal attributes of that person.

When I first did this I was impressed with how CLEAR my vision was on who I wanted to attract – but then I also had to look in the mirror and ask myself honestly if I AM THAT PERSON. OOPS, I was not.

True, the answer was NO.  So what did I do?  or what will YOU do?

Here is what I did.  I became a professional in the industry by educating myself, immersing myself in personal development and learning to become the leader I wanted to attract.  If I expect my TEAM to be leaders, what do I have to do?  I must become a leader as well.

Once things were in place and I felt like I aligned with my list of my IDEAL distributor … amazing things began to happen and they began to happen quickly….  I began to ATTRACT those people with similar attributes to my list and it happened quickly!

So make YOUR list of your ideal distributor and when you are done, read below to see OUR list of what WE we are looking for on our team.

  • A natural leader
  • Business Builder who has an annual 6 figure+ income goal
  • Positive minded and a Team Player

Our Tavala Count down to 2018

                Did You Hear that Sound . . .

. . . it was the 2-Month Warning for 2017 !

Like in football, the last two minutes can often be the most exciting. And the last two MONTHS of your year can be exciting, too.

But it takes some discipline, some real commitment—maybe even some recalibration and implementing some new systems.

The last 60 days of the year include some holidays which we certainly want to enjoy….and luckily for those of us with Tavala, we have a product called TRIM that gives you energy- suppresses the appetite, reduces cravings, helps you boost your metabolism and lose weight.  Last holiday many people actually LOST WEIGHT.

But here we also want to discuss business and we also want to finish the year strong.

What are your goals for the balance of 2017? What do you want to achieve? What do you want to change? What will set you up for a great start in 2018?

You can dig down deep and be a 10 on the “Go-For-It Scale” and knock out your goals. Or, you can slack off and tell yourself you’ll start fresh in the New Year. Which will it be?

What’s stopping you? Most of the time, we’re unclear of the next step and so we don’t take it. If that’s the case, your next step is to get clear on what you need to do. Don’t let confusion and fear keep you from building your confidence as you chip out the last—and perhaps the most important—yardage of the game.

This is YOUR life. This is YOUR game. It’s no one else’s to play. No one will play it for you.

By winning in the last two months of 2017, you’ll be able to practice the Peak to Peek Principle. You’ll be able see further and clearer from the last peak you climb. And in doing so you’ll set even bigger goals for next year.  With Jef Welch, a masterful leader for 30+ years in network marketing, joining Tavala new systems are in place and it will be easier than ever to grow and stay on track.

Last December was a winning month for Dave and I in a number of ways—both personally and professionally.  For one, we joined Tavala and began sharing the opportunity with people we wanted to work with- and we resigned from a company we had been with for over 10 years.  People ask us all the time WHY…and the simple answer is because it was no longer serving us professionally in network marketing and because our reputations were at stake.  We simply couldn’t make good on some things that we simply not working.  (No one wants to be on a ship that is sinking, especially when you take your ‘family’ that trusts you with you- right?)

2017 has been a transformative year for us and we’re looking to making November and December of this year a Slam-Dunk win!  How about you?

Let’s Play!

Make it a great day,

Dave and Joy/ Global Leaders with Tavala



KUDOS:  I owe it to a friend who sends me awesome emails periodically and many of them spur on ideas for blogs.  So, I’d like to give credit to my friend, Michael Angier, founder of Success Net with his lovely wife Dawn as he wrote a good share of this blog in an email that I received…. of course I added my ‘twist’ to it and made it applicable to our business and life.

  To learn more about Success Net go to  I highly recommend his business coaching & training and books.
