Our Story: David & Monica Pickering

During 1993, after feeling great and losing weight on Herbalife products; Monica and I joined Herbalife for the business opportunity.

Taking Herbalife’s advice to USE< WEAR< TALK< keep the business simple, magical and fun, within a few months we had an excellent business running, enjoying our new found ability to help others control their weight, improve their health, and often their financial circumstances.

In return, Herbalife did the same for us.

Part of the earliest training we ever received at Herbalife meetings, was

“NEVER GIVE UP”.    A…taking the products, and so ‘being the best you can be’  and 

                                           B…Re-qualifying annually, thus ensuring you never lose your downline.

and thus your position in the Herbalife hierarchy.

Fortunately we took this advice to heart.

To stay healthy and in control of our weight, we have for the past 26 years, never stopped eating, almost daily, these amazing products which we love and which have totally lived up to their promise.

From 1998, when other forms of income became available to us,  we almost completely ignored our Herbalife business side for some 14 years; from 1999 to 2013; but we never stopped using the amazing products and always made sure to complete our annual Herbalife re-qualifications.

In 2008 the world financial collapse  destroyed a large portion of our investments and triggered our retiring to Plett; I took a job in commerce to help ends meet. We restarted our Herbalife business, exactly where we had left off in the hierarchy 14 years previously, and guess what…

During our absence, the team beneath us had grown substantially, with each member in turn building their own teams and all of them creating monthly, Royalties to which we could lay claim simply be restarting our monthly VP totals. This we did and immediately those royalties contributed to our financial circumstances, such that I was able to quit my job and go back to doing something I love and believe in.

So the best advice, guys, is: whatever you do in Herbalife – love the products, and that is so easy… use them ALL…. simply for your own good health…and …whatever you do….

“Never     give     up!”
