Marketing Promoter for the ViSlaus 90 Day Body by Vi Challenge
From January 2013
Health and Fitness Consultant
January 2012 - January 2013
ViSalus is the #1 weight-loss and fitness platform in North America right now. There are approximately 160,000 people joining The Challenge each month! In 2012, ViSalus passed Jeni Craig and Nutri-Systems in both pounds lost and direct Sales.
Having lost 64 lbs. in less than a year, I now instruct others how to lose weight, get fit, and stay healthy using a meal plan centered around a balanced protein shake that's delicious, affordable, and it WORKS.
I'm actively seeking ONE PROMOTER to partner with and join me in promoting the ViSalus Body by Vi 90-Day Challenge. Together, we're going to help others transform their lives, health, and fitness abilities 90 days at a time. Working as a Consultant for ViSalus is both emotionally and financially rewarding.
In a nation acutely suffering from an obesity epidemic, there is never a shortage of people to help, interested parties to speak with, or audiences to hear presentations.
At this time in my life, my main focus is centered around "giving back." I cannot think of a better way to help my community than offer them an affordable way out related to the complications of morbid obesity, low self-esteem, and depression.
I'm experiencing great success promoting the ViSalus Body by Vi Challenge; our products are high quality and popular. As mentioned, I have lost a total of 64 pounds and for the first time in my life, I wear a Size-4.
It's not about any numbers in a dress or on a scale. It's about helping others be the best they can be with limited resources in this economically depressed time and serving in economically challenged areas.
Every Sunday I hold as Open House Challenge Party at my home. How many people do you know actually get "paid to party?" I do and it's amazing! Anyone want to join me?

The Online Design
January 2000 - July 2008
I have always been extremely active in business promotions. Back in the 1980's it was with my Family's Construction Company and my Mother's Law Office. At the Millennium, I decided to make a major career change away from Healthcare.
I created The Online Design Team.
We use whatever resources are available in our Network to provide the most cost effective advertising and web design for all Business Owners, great and small.
The difference with The Online Design Team is that we give you all the tools and training you need to edit your own website so that you will never again be at the mercy of $51.00 an hour web designers to make changes to your site at their convenience - AND you get a total PR package with ongoing support to get the most visibility from your Web Presence.
"A Website" is not a magic bullet. The PR behind the website...is vital for success. The Online Design started in January of 2000 and continues to this very day for a wide variety of Clients.
