10 Qualities that Set AdvoCare apart from other Direct Sales Companies

Charlie Ragus

10 Qualities that Set AdvoCare apart from other Direct Sales Companies. A few distinctions BEFORE I get into this list: Did you know that Advocare is the 1st Direct Sales company to ever take leaders to Washington DC? They discuss our amazing company and discussed protecting our free enterprise system! No direct sales company has ever done this before.  Every year 500 new direct sales companies are born, but did you know that after only 12 months, 85% of them are out of business? After 3 years, 97% are out of business. Isn’t that incredible? No wonder the stigma of direct sales is what it is. I try to have a new appreciation for skeptics because the fact is that they should be skeptical, but we can alleviate that with this strong, debt-free, 20 year old company that has grown 130% in the last 2 years in revenue.

  • We are a member of the DSA and Richard Wright serves on the Board of Directors. There are very stringent guidelines to become members AND be in good standing. As of now, there are 585 members and only 210 in good standing. Advocare IS in good standing! Advocare had 120% increase in those qualifying for leadership since last year
  • There has been more money made in the last 3 years than in the first 16 combined
  • Our products use only the BEST products and active ingredients
  • There are actually 7 quality levels and Advocare only uses the highest in every single category. (Let’s look at Catalyst. Not surprisingly, our Amino acids are produced using the highest FDA quality labs here in the U.S.A. Most other companies produce them overseas and get their amino acid source from duck feathers and hair. They may have the same label, but do you think they have an equal product?   No it is like ‘dragging a chicken through a 50 gallon tub of water and calling it chicken soup’!)
  • Advocare has the lowest product return rates of all Direct Sales companies valued at over 100M. The next nearest has 5X the # of returned products.

The 10 Qualities that Set AdvoCare Apart from other Direct Sales Companies:

  1. Our 10 Guiding Principles – our foundation
  2. Stable Marketing Plan
  3. Scientific Medical Advisory Board
  4. Debt Buster System available for FREE for all Distributors
  5. Unpaid Endorsers – more than all other nutritional companies combined
  6. Satisfaction Guarantee – money back for 12 months
  7. Product Purchases – you can order only what you want and need. There is no required purchases.  You don’t have to order a bundle of products to get the bottle of catalyst or Omegas that you want
  8. Relationship Marketing
  9. The People
  10. Leadership Skills Development – character, integrity, people of moral fiber It’s important that we attract the right people.

The right people make the difference!

Predicting Healthy Aging – Dr. Mark Miller

Dr. Mark Miller

Western societies are facing a series of major challenges that represent a potential healthcare tsunami in the next few decades. They are the combined forces of the population demographic group known as the Baby Boomers (those born between 1946 – 1964) and consequences of altered diet and lifestyle resulting in obesity. Thus, the elderly population is growing in stature – both physically and numerically.

Given the expanding numbers of the older population and the burden that their numbers and poor health have on healthcare resources, it is timely to evaluate the determinants of healthy aging. If we could direct efforts early so this population bubble was in better health as they age, it would have dramatic effects on the costs to society. So what are the predictors of healthy aging?

A recent publication out of Harvard in the British Medical Journal (Sun et al., 2009) shed some important insight. Using data from the Nurses Health study they determined that weight gain at middle age was a strong predictor for health at age 70. This was a prospective study where over 17,000 nurses were evaluated from 1976 (at a mean age of 50) to 2000. Being healthy was defined as being free of cognitive, mental health or physical health deficits as well as free of 11 major chronic illnesses. The latter were diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple sclerosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease etc.

Stunningly only 9.9% on nurses that enrolled in the study in 1976 were healthy at age 70! In other words over more than 9 out 10 were unhealthy as they aged. After adjustments for lifestyles and dietary variables a major determinant of healthy aging was weight at middles age. Indeed it was linearly related, so that for every 2.2 pounds of weight put on between the ages of 18 and 50, the chances of being healthy at 70 went down by 5%. So if you gained 22 pounds your chances were reduced by 50%. Do your own personal math and calculate your risk. Frightening and this is for the population that lived to age 70. The focus was on healthy aging not longevity.

The lowest odds for healthy aging were those that were overweight at age 18 and gained more weight with age. Indeed, in this study 37% of the participants had both a chronic disease and at least one limitation (physical, mental or cognitive) and 55% had more than one limitation. In contrast if you maintained a healthy and stable body weight your chances for healthy aging improved dramatically.

The study pointed out some of the attributes that were associated with those that aged in a healthy manner versus those that did not. These include:

  • More physically active
  • Lower dietary intake of saturated fatty acids, trans fats and red meat
  • Higher dietary intake of PUFA /Saturated fats, alcohol intake, cereal fiber and fruits & vegetables.
  • Less likely to be a smoker
  • Better educated

It appears that choices are major determinants of healthy aging, especially choices related to obesity and weight gain. Those individuals that maintain a stable healthy weight over their lifetime are far more likely to enjoy a healthy status as elderly citizens. This has a massive bearing on societal issues as noted at the beginning given the population bubble of Baby Boomers and the costs associated with managing poor health and aging.

Apparently size matters, and healthy aging is certainly determined by weight gain in adulthood.

Advocare Tools to Help with Healthy Aging

BioTools

BioTools

A two-supplement system designed for your specific stage of life. Featuring AdvoCare BioTune® and BioCharge®.

BioCharge®:

  • Helps with cellular and muscle repair, accelerating recovery*
  • Promotes lean muscle mass and performance*
  • Provides a caffeine-free source of energy*

BioTune®:

  • Promotes internal balance and healthy aging*
  • Encourages youthful responses to physical stress and challenges*
  • Formulated with a unique nutrient/herbal blend that helps support cardiovascular, bone and joint, and gastrointestinal systems.*

BioCharge®:

BioCharge® is designed to facilitate the restoration of our epigenome status to a more youthful setting.* This anti-aging action is accomplished through antioxidant rich botanicals combined with B vitamins and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs).* BCAAs are critical for activation of genetic resources in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. During exercise the presence of BCAAs helps promote the genetic code that leads to lean body mass, improved muscle performance and recovery.

Delayed recovery from exercise is a hallmark of aging. For those who do not maintain an active lifestyle, twinges, aches, stiffness and pains may be a common and constant companion. An imbalance in the epigenome is a major contributor to these events. In addition to the BCAAs, the botanicals in BioCharge are known to help correct these imbalances in the epigenome and provide anti-inflammatory actions.*

Taurine and B vitamins within BioCharge address the loss of energy that Baby Boomers feel.* Non-jittery energy that is focused and sustained is a characteristic of these components.* Since some Boomers can be less tolerant of some of the effects of caffeine, BioCharge is caffeine free.

BioTune®:

Ingredient research has shown that nutrients in BioTune are able to help restore the use of genetic resources.* They do not change the DNA code – we inherit that code from our parents. But how we use that code has a large bearing on our health.

Think of the genetic code like the hardware in a computer. It does not change and is the same in all cells, whether they are skin, nerves, liver or muscle. However, what tells those cells to act in the correct manner and perform their assigned roles and functions are a series of molecular switches called the “epigenome”. If the DNA is the hardware, then these switches are the software that determines how cells act and function.

Over time, or due to poor nutrition and environmental factors the software program can shift in its performance. This dysfunction in our cellular software can contribute to the problems that we collectively call Boomeritis and other conditions associated with aging.

The ingredients in BioTune are naturally occurring substances with ingredient research support demonstrating their actions as guardians of the epigenome. These materials possess complex chemical structures and work in a variety of ways, with the combination bringing diverse approaches to health and wellness through a multitude of actions.* The end result is a more youthful feeling that results from synchronizing your genes with nature.*

Story of Financial Success and Weight Loss

Pannell's Weight Loss and Success

Weight Loss, Financial Freedom, Success…all things I wanted.  But how do I get it?  I heard someone say once, if you want to do something, find someone else that has done it, and do what they did.  Pretty simple isn’t it?  So, Advocare found me at a family reunion.  My cousin and her husband had lost a lot of weight, how’d they do it.  Advocare’s 24 Day Challenge, well I can do that.  Just do what they did.  In 24 days, I lost 18 pounds and 18 inches, went from a size 42 pant, to a size 38.  Had more energy than I had in a decade.  I’m now down over 35 pounds, and training hard, and loving it.

OK, Financial Success is next, I want that freedom.  Who can show me the way?  In come Jason and Angela Pannell.  They lead the organization I belong to in Advocare, and they are one of many in the group that can show me the way.  Here is their story.

A Story of Financial Success and Weight Loss with Jason & Angela Pannell – Tennessee

Our story is simple. We’d been inner city youth directors in Ohio for five years and felt the call to be church planters and get back to our home state of Tennessee.

In the fall of 2007 we moved to Dallas en route to Nashville, Tenn. to pursue our calling. This would be a relaxing, stress free move and everything would flow seamlessly together – so we thought.

Three months into our stay the economy began to plummet, and we ended up taking on extra jobs just to keep our heads above water. The year rolled around and we found ourselves working five jobs, barely scraping by and living on credit cards. While in Dallas we learned about church planting, grew in our marriage and were trying to get ahead financially, but as the move to Nashville grew closer we realized we did all of these things but remained in debt.

In November 2008, we knew things were about to change. That’s when I ran in a half marathon and met Crystal Thurber. We set up a meeting at the AdvoCare home office and I saw “IT”. Not just “IT” but ALL of it – Hope, character, integrity and passion. I found a company that is guided by the same principles that guide me. And, a company offering physical and financial hope.

Being a sports enthusiast, the endorsers blew me away! I was sold on the products and my immediate words for Crystal were, “Show me the money.”  (See the Advocare Endorsers by clicking here)

Crystal told me about the Rookie Bonus, and it was then I knew this was for us. In that economy, where would we go to find an opportunity to earn $1,000-$6,000 every two weeks for the first year of work? Angela and I went to an AdvoCare meeting and a day later became Advisors.

We immediately began taking products, and the results were astounding! Angela went from a size eight to a two, lost four percent body fat and maintained her weight by putting on lean muscle. I lost 11 pounds, four percent body fat and three inches from my waist! We are in better shape now than we were in our early 20s.  (Check out Advocare’s Weight Loss System)

With a great product and a simple business plan, we went to work without knowing a soul in Dallas. Crystal told us to put her on the phone with as many people as we could, as fast as we could and as often as we could, and she would share her story and help them decide where they best fit with AdvoCare.

Our first Success School took place three months into our journey, and 26 of our team members joined us. Crystal taught us the power of connecting while empowering us with confidence.  (Check out this video about Success School)

We earned eight Rookie Bonuses totaling $22,000, $50,000 first place in the Field of Dreams Incentive, and an incredible vacation to Peter Island – all within our first year. We went from working five jobs to one and making $148,000! We were blown away by the leadership of AdvoCare but more so, by the simple business practice of serving others.

We were finally able to make the move to Tennessee without the fears of debt but with the vehicle to live a life of freedom.

Advocare’s Guiding Principles

Charlie Ragus

Charlie Ragus developed 10 principles that guide our direction and are the basis of our success.

Driven by a desire to help people improve their life nutritionally and financially, Charlie Ragus founded AdvoCare in 1993. He chose the name AdvoCare to communicate his commitment to be an advocate who cared.

Today, AdvoCare carries on with Mr. Ragus’ vision and commitment to offer products and an opportunity for financial freedom to people of all walks of life.

Advocare’s 10 principles that guide our direction and are the basis of our success:

  1. Honor God through our faith, family and friends.
  2. Respect and strengthen the family.
  3. Believe in the dignity and the importance of the individual.
  4. Create a standard of excellence recognized as superior by the direct sales industry.
  5. Believe that honor, integrity and principles are the foundation of a great life and company.
  6. Commit to mutual loyalty and trust between AdvoCare and its Distributors.
  7. Establish and continually improve the vehicle of opportunity and the pursuit of financial freedom for all AdvoCare Distributors.
  8. Commit to ongoing personal growth and development through professional training and educational programs.
  9. Build self-esteem by promoting a sense of personal worth among all people.
  10. Continually expand our market by providing the most effective and highest quality products and service available.

Amy Anderson of Forbes Magazine said: “If I could teach only one value to live by, it would be this: Success will come and go, but integrity is forever. Integrity means doing the right thing at all times and in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching. It takes having the courage to do the right thing, no matter what the consequences will be. Building a reputation of integrity takes years, but it takes only a second to lose, so never allow yourself to ever do anything that would damage your integrity.”

Charlie built that in as a guiding principle that we all need to follow to move forward in our business.
