Today I am feeling a little sad…reflecting. I am sure the rain isn’t helping. LOL!
My 5-year-old daughter, Cadey donated her hair to cancer today. I am very proud of her. It was a challenge at times brushing her long hair, but she is tough and she tolerated it (and me!).
I have 2 other daughters that donated their hair June 2009, which leads me to writing this post. Later that day, I learned that my husband had developed tongue cancer. The numbness that I felt at that moment was like nothing that I had ever felt before in my life. I have heard of people that I know having cancer, but to experience it so close to home, certainly puts a different perspective on things. He was only 42 at the time and our 5 kids were ages 4-13.
I remember later that night, I was in the house, still in a state of shock and he was outside playing baseball with our son, happy and laughing and just having a great time. I remember thinking…how could he possibly be so strong? Now, don’t get me wrong, he certainly had his moments of sadness, but he was so strong throughout the whole thing. There were many times that he had to tell me that everything was going to be fine, instead of it being the other way around.
The hardest part was not knowing what the heck the next step was and waiting for answers from the doctors. How do we tell the kids? What caused it? Would he need radiation or chemo? Would he need surgery? Did it spread throughout his body? And most important…would he be a survivor? Not knowing any of these answers was the worst part of it all. But, walking into that cancer center for the first time was awful at the age of 42. What made it worse was that amount of kids that were there. I don’t mean little kids….I am talking about 20 year olds. What the heck is going on in our society for such young people to get cancer?
Carl had an 11-hour surgery at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia in July 2009 and was in the hospital for 8 days. Thank goodness for my parents. They live about 500 miles from us in North Carolina and they stayed with us for about 3 weeks to help with the kids and just everything. The emotional support was especially needed. I went to visit him every single day at that hospital. It was an hour drive each way. It was, at that time, that I was extremely thankful and grateful for network marketing for giving me the freedom to do what I needed to do for my family during this stressful time.
Luckily, no radiation or chemo was needed. Now, he appears to be cancer free and to this day is still healing. We are extremely lucky. As many Doctors that we saw and as many as he still has to see…it is so overwhelming. I can not even imagine going through chemo or radiation…in fact, I just can’t even think about it.
There are days that I completely forget that he even had cancer, but when I hear of people getting it that I now, I immediately feel for them and get upset all over again. Cancer is a horrible disease. The part that really stinks is that now, if Carl has a soar throat for a long period of time or feels anything weird around his mouth or throat, he has to schedule an appt right away. It just stinks because he has to carry this around with him for the rest of his life and always be reminded of this at the age of 43. But, we never forget how lucky we are in so many ways and we got through this together.

Herbalife Scam Review
Is there really a Herbalife Scam?
Are we talking about an Herbalife Scam as in a money making opportunity? Are they saying that the products are not good? Here is a surprise, Herbalife lacks in neither of these areas. So of course a Herbalife scam doesn’t exist.
Herbalife Scam Review – The Products
First, the products that are available are good quality and work to give you a better quality of life. There are many people out there that will tell you that they lost weight successfully and with relative ease with the products that the company offers. I have taken the Formula One and I loved it! There is not a Herbalife Scam if you ask me!
Herbalife Review – More About The Products
All the ingredients in any product that the company manufactures and markets are 100% natural and safe. You can purchase anything from products that make your body work better, so you feel better, to products that you can use for skin care to stay better and younger looking. The weight loss products have been proven again and again to work for many people.
Herbalife Scam Review – The Business Opportunity
As far as a business opportunity, the opportunity that the company offers is just as legitimate as any other opportunity in a MLM company out there. The business was built on solid business principals and the company is quite successful. So, I hope that you can see that there is not an Herbalife Scam
When it comes to products to offer the public, there are hundreds that will help someone with anything from digestion to anti aging, stress management to immune system help, and weight loss, to any type of nutritional program for adults and children alike.
Herbalife Scam Review – What Is Missing?
There is; however, a slight flaw in the system when it comes to the business model that people gets involved in. It is quite simple really, the company does not have enough support and training for the people that get involved for an income opportunity and do not have the necessary business savvy. Without proper knowledge to market your inventory and build your MLM business, you will, eventually get frustrated and throw in the towel. The amount of people that do this is amazing.
Herbalife Scam Review – The Solution
There is, however, a solution to this problem. It is very simple; you need to have someone that will train you to run a MLM company with minimum effort and maximum success. There are companies out there that will do this for you.
Herbalife Scam Review – More On The Solution
When you subscribe to a training website, you will pay a minimum amount per month to gain many benefits in the area of lead generation and sales. Many of these people that are involved in a site like these are recruiting up to 30 new distributors per month; this is huge when you are in the business.
If you are planning to get involved in any internet MLM company, it would be a good idea to take a look and become involved in one of these membership help programs… Your success depends on this.
Since writing this Herbalife Review, I have had 4 ex-Herbalife reps join me in my business opportunity and marketing system. I am not saying that my opportunity is better. But, unfortunately, I run across many Herbalife reps do not have the mentorship and training that they need to succeed. They are tired of buying extremely expensive leads, calling the leads, and finding that these leads are looking for a job. I talked to one rep and he had $4000 worth of product that he couldn’t get rid of and his business was going no where! Is that your story also?
Most people want leadership, support, and mentorship. We are not only a team, we are a family. Also, people realize that my marketing strategies work! After all, you are reading this right now, aren’t you? Do you want to learn how I did it?
Having people to talk to about your business, is vital if you want to build a successful mlm business. If you don’t have people to talk to, how can you expect your business to grow? You need leads! As I mention earlier, I myself, struggled to get leads and people to enroll in my business opportunity. I now generate free leads everyday for my business and I even have people picking up the phone and calling me! Isn’t that cool?
Would you like to have the same? I can show you how. I can also show you how to brand yourself on the internet and stand out among everyone else in the company.

I have earned an income from many people that I have never spoken to nor have they joined my business.
As you can see my marketing works that is why you are on my page. If you are not generating leads and exposing your company presentation to 5 people every single day, then you will fail.
What if you were able to generate 28 free leads each and everyday and build a relationship with those people, so that they actually WANT join your personal team? Learn how I consistently generate 28 free leads daily, sponsored over 500 people online, and earn an extra $1825 in 6 days all while making macaroni and cheese for the kids, hanging at the beach, or sleeping!
