My husband travels for work just once a year. Many travel much more often than that. I spoke with a customer recently who travels “heavily” for work meaning she leaves town once a week for 2-4 days away. There are resources to help you manage or maximize your business travel.
What struck me last week was when my husband shared that he “hated this trip” more than once and with much emotion. “I know I have to do it” he said and knows the importance of meeting up with customers and vendors at this once a year trade show, but he was and is not excited about going.
Watch my story here.
As I heard that I reflected on how I travel for business once a year as well, travel to the location of the Shaklee Global Convention each year. I plan for it, work to help my team members grow their business so they can attend as well as afford the convention each year. I have seem over the 12 years of going to Convention the importance and great value we all receive when we attend.
In 2004 after Roger Barnett Purchased Shaklee and began the CEO, I started attending the yearly convention. That year it happened to be in Chicago so that was easy to attend. I started to hear his vision for the company , his vision for making the world a healthier place. While keeping the philosophy of the late Dr. Shaklee, the founder of Shaklee, Roger seeks to help the company to continue to live in Harmony with nature but take the Shaklee Corporation the future and help us be the largest force for social change. Pretty cool and pretty big.
Each year since then I have traveled to attend the convention. Many years I was alone or with my friend and gal who introduced me to Shaklee Pam. As my team started to grow, a few of the team joined us as we went to convention. Our group grows and grows each year. This year we have one the fastest growing teams in Shaklee.
As I have gone to meetings I have met others from the field. I have found like minded people, positive minds who share the same philosophy of helping others and working hard at that to make the world a better place. Each year I can hardly wait to travel to that year’s destination of the Shaklee convention.
So many great times. So many great memories.
What I am most grateful for is what SHaklee offers to me as well as those on my team and anyone who chooses to join us.
**Ability to Earn Cash, Cars, trips and more
**My own business but backed by a powerful and stable business of the Shaklee Corporation behind me.
**Work business into my life not Life into my business
**Building for the future as I build a team and residual income that pays me today and on into the future.
**Making a difference in peoples lives and health
**Building a community of like minded people who are looking for purpose, a sense of identity, hope for the future and something to call their own.
My husband will return tonight from his trip. I have heard it was another successful trip with networking with other business partners and customers.
This weekend I will be attending just a ONE day leadership retreat and I am SO excited about it. So excited as I know I will get valuable training that I always love to receive. I think most importantly i can’t wait to connect with people from my team and people from the collective team of Shaklee who will be there. Not a big trip as i’ts a short car ride away. One that will be a highlight of my weekend for sure, most likely the month.

You wont ever regret looking into the possibility of what could be different and new. I am so thankful that someone presented the possibility of better health for my son and family many years ago . I am also thankful that that same person showed me the business opportunity in Shaklee. It has given me the chance to build for the future, find a purpose for myself and my future, so my husband doesn’t have to dread taking those business trips each year as he will be in business with me, enjoying a life filled with purpose and freedom. A life that we get to choose when and where we travel, when and where we work and with whom.
Yes it is Possible.
