So I said I would get back to this,… here I am. LDW! For you non-Herbalife folks (I kinda feel bad for you) LDW stands for Leadership Development Weekend. It is a weekend long power training session. It’s Herbalife’s version of a company meeting. Let me tell you, Herbalife has the best company meetings. Lights, music, dancing, cheering, awesomeness. Several of us traveled to the Twin Cities last weekend for the training. We heard lots of inspiring stories involving both product success and how other are creating wealth. It’s insane the opportunities this company provides. I mean there were soooo many people in the room making more that $10K a MONTH! AND AND!!! They are doing what they love! Do what you love, help people, and make over $10K A MONTH! Heck yes! Sounds like a plan to me!
So we had lots of success stories on Saturday. Then Saturday night we attended a Pirate Party!! So awesome to see hundreds of Pirates just dancing away! Then Sunday was the Meat and Potatoes (Formula one and Protein Drink Mix, if you will) of the training. Lots of great guidance from wonderful people who have been very successful with this company. I haven’t taken that many notes since college! They talked about growing your business… In Herbalife you are responsible for how much you make… if you want to make $500 a month, great…if you want to make $5000, then do it! It’s all up to you! Such good info! AND THERE WAS A PIRATE PARTY!
I know that isn’t a huge recap, but I can’t even describe what you take away. One of the girls at Fuze said it best when she told me… you won’t even know what you have missed until you go and see it. Now that I have been to one LDW, I see why everyone says its soooo important. When you are in business for yourself, you have to take full advantage of every opportunity to learn and grow and that is exactly what LDW provides!
So anyways… Last night we went out with some friends here in Appleton. Very bitter sweet! Its crazy how close you can get to people in a very short time! It has become much harder to pack up and go than I thought it would be. I fully expected this move to be easy. Ya know, just put my stuff in a truck and “go home”. As I am very much excited to be back closer to family and friends (AND OUT OF SALES)… I am struggling far more than I thought I would to leave Appleton. I have meet some really awesome people here! I know I will continue to see my Herbalfamily at LDW’s, but I am still going to miss the people here. I am thankful for the relationships I have made and the time I have spent with these folks getting to know them. I guess I’m just not great at good bye…they don’t seem to get easier. The positive side… I know I always have some place to visit should I feel the need to travel north for a while! :) So as we wrap up our last week here I plan to PACK (UGH), tell the rest of my current customers I’m leaving, hit up a few more fit camps, and of course spend a little time at Fuze! Then next Saturday… wheels up and southbound! Hope Iowa is ready! See you soon!
