The Co-pilot.....

Every once in a while, I feel like the co-pilot. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to give the impression that I'm lax or anything or even that my wife is more capable of a leader in our house. On the front lines of putting a name out there of a product that works, though, she's the boss. She's Batman on this one, folks....if I'm to be honest, though.....I've never been so honored to play Robin alongside my best friend.

If there's one thing I've been learning about Nerium, right now, it's that it isn't even entirely about the product, though it DOES's about building relationships....and the fact is, those relations are mingled with so much. Gratitude, comradarie, and even friendship....who would have thought, huh? I mean, there are people that I never thought I'd be spending an evening with....and enjoying it? That's an awesome feeling. Believe that.

As I look up this mountain that is "The Opportunity", a few thoughts occur to me.

1. I'm really in this thing for as long as it takes to get to the top of this mountain.

2. I wondering what the road ahead will look like with all the training sessions, business meetings, results parties, conference calls, and all the like. I'm at the ready as a support structure.

3. I hope the mountain top view is nice.

When we began this journey a couple of weeks ago, my head rang with words like "Freedom" and "Opportunity" and "Success". I'd like to think that the nights at home with my kids and the dog are all worth it, even if it's just because I get to watch them play a little more often than most nights. For better or worse, this IS work, no matter how you look at it, but when the smoke clears, you're building relationships with people as well.

It Has Begun....

For anyone who doesn't already know me, let me introduce myself. I'm Jerry and for the past couple of weeks, I've been married to Nerium. Of course, I'm married to my lovely bride, Lyndsey, but in these past couple of weeks, Nerium has become a part of this journey we're taking together. Before I explain what this NERIUM is I speak of, let me begin by saying that I was a skeptic.

This little bottle in our cabinet has become something of an image of hope and freedom, in a manner of speaking. Am I using it? As of this post, no. HOWEVER, my wife has been and, if demeanor is anything to sell a product on, this product should be FLYING out of their storehouses. So what is this Nerium? I suppose it can be summed up in a few words: Youth, Opportunity, and Freedom.

Again, you're asking "WHAT IS NERIUM?" I can see it on your face even as I'm typing this. Nerium International is a company that sells three skin cremes. That's it. Just three items in their wheelhouse, but those three products have changed my wife's outlook on how she views herself in the mirror AND how she can help other people feel the same. This blog is my portion of this journey. These are my observations, my questions and answers, my footsteps and commentary on this road down The Opportunity that every brand partner is presented at the beginning. Since that is where I stand, that is where my blog begins as well.

When we were presented with "The Opportunity", I was COMPLETELY against the idea. Sure, the product seems to work, at least on the short term, but what about once the initial excitement dies down in a week or two? Well, so far, it hasn't. In fact, the excitement just keeps coming. It really is remarkable what just the use of this product for even a  5 day trial does for a person's outlook. So far, I've seen it about 10 times plus and the results are always fantastic.....

And so the journey continues....
