USANA Team Building

 - by Pete and Dora Zdanis

It happens all too often.....

A prospect signs up as a new Associate. They're excited about the USANA products and the business, and can't wait to get started. They contact their friends, neighbors and relatives about what they have discovered in USANA, only to often be ridiculed and rejected. They make some other misguided attempts to present USANA to their warm and cold market, and nothing happens - more failure. They don't know what to do next. In the meantime, they've heard nothing from their sponsor or other upline members. Phone calls to their USANA sponsor go unanswered. They feel alone, deserted. They eventually quit.

Strong-willed and motivated people, particularly those with some network marketing experience, can often times overcome this scenario. However, the vast majority of people just give up. And now we have another inactive USANA Associate – a person who feels that "Network Marketing is a scam", or "USANA is not a good company." This attitude can soon spread to other parts of your group, and, before you know it, you have a frustrated, inactive organization. Growth slows and eventually comes to a halt, and attrition increases.

It is a fact that approximately 80% of new USANA Associates have no prior Network Marketing experience. It's also known from feedback collected from inactive distributors, and distributors who have canceled, that one of their biggest complaints is that they've received no contact or support from their sponsor and upline.

On the other hand, there are thriving, growing organizations within USANA. New distributors are signing up with the Professional Pack or the Entrepreneur Pack, and duplicating the process. New USANA Associates are earning checks early and regularly, and advancing to higher pin levels week after week.

What's going on here?

Why do some groups continue to thrive while others shrivel up and die on the vine?

In our opinion, a major factor is "Team Building".

All successful people, in any other endeavor, will tell you that a key to their success has often been motivation and/or coaching and/or mentoring, and network marketing is no exception. Network marketing is also known as "relationship marketing". And that means that you not only need to develop a relationship with prospects, you also need to develop a relationship with the rest of your USANA organization. By necessity, all good relationships (both personal and professional) require communication. A catcher needs to know if the pitcher is going to throw a fastball or a curve ball. A wide receiver needs to know if the quarterback is throwing the ball to them. A spouse needs to know if their partner just wrote a large check which depleted their funds. A new USANA Associate needs to know that they can count on others for help and support, and they need to know how to reach those people. Without communication - nothing happens. Or at least it doesn't happen very well.

Here are a few examples of things that you and your team members can do to build a thriving organization:

·         Throughout the week, check the "New Associates" link on USANA Downline Management (DLM). Click on the "Details" link for every new person, and make a note of their e-mail address and other contact information. You should also do the same for every person upline from them. You can do this by clicking on the "Placement ID#" link for each person. Keep doing this until you have the information for every person upline from the new person. Then, send a short e-mail to the new Associate, with a copy to everyone upline from them, welcoming them to USANA and offering your support.

·         When you personally sponsor a new Associate, send an email announcement, including their contact information (name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.) to everyone upline from the new Associate, including your own upline. Ask the new Associate’s upline to send a welcome email to the new Associate, with a copy to you, their sponsor.

·         When you personally sponsor a new Associate, send them an email containing a complete list of their upline team, including email addresses and other contact information. Explain that, as their sponsor, YOU are their main contact for support, however, all the other members of their upline are concerned about their success, and are willing to help and support them as needed.


Do not rely on social media for announcing your new team members, and do not rely on social media for welcoming new team members.

There are three reasons why:

·         Not everyone uses social media on a regular basis, and some people don’t use it at all, making it too easy for important information about new Associates to be missed by some team members.

·         You should not make public postings on social media of new team members’ contact information ( email address, phone number, etc.) as described above

·         Social media does not allow you to send new Associate contact information just to specific team members upline from the new Associate


The above are just a few examples of things you can do to effectively and efficiently build a high performance team.

Just imagine how much more enthused and committed your new Associates will be when they receive messages of welcome and support from five or ten, or more, of their upline team members, and know that they have people who are ready and willing to help them when they need it.

Pass this message on to everyone in your USANA organization, including all of your upline, and watch what can happen when people start to do some of the basic things necessary to build a strong, productive and successful team.

How To Build A Bigger Team

by Michael S. Clouse

Yes, by now you’ve probably been told (more than a few times I would imagine) that Network Marketing is about three things: prospecting, presentation, and duplication. And yet, if you’re like most business-builders, far too many of those you’ve already introduced to the business seem to be doing, well, nothing at all…

Sadly the most often-heard solution to this seemingly unsolvable situation is, “Go talk to more people….” So without knowing any better you follow that advice—you find a few more prospects, present the business a few more times, and try to help those new ones get started—only to see them eventually drop out too.

What’s going on here? Is the old “Bring ‘em in the front door faster than they’re leaving out the back door” antiquated approach any way to build a solid business? Well, the simple answer is, “No!” And yet to this day that same old mantra, “Go talk to more people….” is still being shared by many as the only solution to the dropout dilemma they’re experiencing throughout the organization!

Unfortunately, for most first-time business-builders, their eventuality is as predictable as it was preventable. The prediction, of course, is that far too many who’ve been sponsored will eventually quit the business—usually justifying their untimely demise because someone told them, “Network Marketing is a bad idea;” or they felt that “It took too much time and cost too much money;” or my personal favorite, “No one really helped me.” And splat! You’ve lost another one… Road kill on the highway of success!

But what if there were a better way to grow your Empire than the ridiculous, one step forward, two steps backward, “Go talk to more people….” approach? Well, actually, there is…

No, I am not suggesting the “You just need to sponsor five prospects and teach them how to sponsor five more…” ill-advised plan either. Because if you truly want to succeed in Network Marketing, and achieve the top pay level in your company, an on-going sponsoring plan will need to become—like eating, or bathing, or dressing each day—simply part of the process of life.

What I am saying (and have been for years) is prospects that are progressively educated about Network Marketing build bigger businesses, and in turn become better leaders, than those who are not. And yet to this day most well-intended business-builders still don’t have a progressive plan in place for the initial (not to mention the on-going) instruction necessary for the survival of those they have personally introduced to their company.

The truth is, above-average success in Network Marketing requires, among other things: 1) belief in the profession, 2) belief in the business-building system itself, and 3) belief in the fact that you can do this… Now if that’s true—and it is—why do we seem surprised when those who haven’t been progressively educated quit the business? On the contrary; if we’re not systematically instilling this information into our new business-builders, we should actually expect them to quit as soon as they encounter any resistance at all—and we are rarely disappointed!

Therefore, if you’re ready to build a bigger team—and actually keep more of the people you sponsor—try this three-step, belief-building system: First, provide every prospect with something to educate them about the Network Marketing industry. Second, after they have sponsored in, immediately offer every business-builder something to teach them the basics of the business. Third, after your new business-builder has been involved for 30 days or so, give them something to keep them moving in the direction of their dreams…

Because when you use a step-by-step system that progressively builds belief in every person you sponsor, you will then realize, firsthand, the awesome duplicatable power of a thriving, well-educated, organization.

Now that’s how you build a bigger team!

All the best,

Low serum vitamin E levels are associated with higher risk of bone fracture

At a Glance:

A recent study concludes that higher vitamin E intakes appear to be associated with increased bone mineral density and decreased fracture risk.

Read more about this research below: 

Recent studies have indicated that oxidative stress may be a contributing factor in the development of osteoporosis and fractures.  A new study investigated the potential association between serum alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E) concentrations and the risk of hip fractures.

The study, published online in the journal Osteoporosis International, included 21,774 Norwegian men and women aged 65-79 that were part of a community-based health study. Serum Vitamin E concentrations were measured at the beginning of the study and subjects were followed for 11 years.   

During the course of the follow up, 1,168 hip fractures were reported in the men and women. After adjusting for smoking, month of blood sample, BMI, education, physical inactivity, self-rated health, and serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), serum vitamin E levels showed a linear inverse association with hip fracture risk.  Among subjects in the lowest quartile (25%) of serum Vitamin E, the risk of hip fracture was 51% higher than those whose levels were among the top 25%.  

In this population, low serum vitamin E concentrations were associated with an increased risk of hip fractures. These results confirm the findings of two recent cohort studies which also found an increased risk of bone fracture among older adults with low serum vitamin E concentrations. The researchers suggest that in addition to its antioxidant effect, vitamin E could have a direct role in bone remodeling. However, further research is needed to clarify the role of vitamin E in maintaining bone health.

@USANAinc Tackles Canadian Football League

News Release

@USANAinc Tackles Canadian Football League, Fortifying #Health of #Roughriders Tyron Brackenridge and Terrell Maze

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Football season is underway and USANA Health Sciences is rushing to welcome Canadian Football League defensive athletes and 2013 Grey Cup champions, Tyron Brackenridge and Terrell Maze of the Saskatchewan Roughriders to Team USANA, as its newest Brand Ambassadors. The CFL duo joins more than 700 professional and Olympic athletes worldwide who receive USANA's NSF and HFL-tested products.

"Partnering with players from one of Canada's most popular sports, as well as teams, is an honor and natural step for USANA," said USANA Chief Communications Officer Dan Macuga. "The addition of these two exceptional Grey Cup champions to the USANA family is a testament to USANA's continued commitment of supplying elite athletes with products they can trust."

Brackenridge, 30, is in his fourth year with the Saskatchewan team, after spending fours years in the National Football League with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs. During the 2013 season the California native led the league with five forced fumbles and was named Defensive Player of the Week in week eight and a CFL All-Star.

"Being able to perform as an elite athlete requires optimal health and wellness, and by partnering with USANA I am confident in reaching my health goals safely and effectively," says Maze.

The 30-year-old kicked off his third year with the Roughriders earlier this summer, coming off of a successful 2013 season where he started 13 regular season games, the West Semi-Final, West Final and Grey Cup. 

The five-foot-eleven cornerback began his professional career in 2007 when he was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent.

Brackenridge and Maze step back on the field August 24, as the Roughriders face the British Columbia Lions at the BC Place Stadium, at 8 p.m. EST.

*The mentioned athletes are either distributors or dedicated users who have received compensation for their partnership and/or complimentary USANA products.

Facing the Enemies Within

by Jim Rohn 

We are not born with courage, but neither are we born with fear. Maybe some of our fears are brought on by our own experiences, by what someone has told us, by what we've read in the papers. Some fears are valid, like walking alone in a bad part of town at 2 o’clock in the morning. But once we learn to avoid that situation, we won't need to live in fear of it.

Fears, even the most basic ones, can totally destroy our ambitions. Fear can destroy fortunes. Fear can destroy relationships. Fear, if left unchecked, can destroy our lives. Fear is one of the many enemies lurking inside us. Let me tell you about five of the other enemies we face from within. 

The first enemy that you've got to destroy before it destroys you is indifference. What a tragic disease this is. "Ho-hum, let it slide. I'll just drift along." Here's one problem with drifting: you can't drift your way to the top of the mountain.

The second enemy we face is indecision. Indecision is the thief of opportunity and enterprise. It will steal your chances for a better future. Take a sword to this enemy.

The third enemy inside is doubt. Sure, there's room for healthy skepticism. You can't believe everything. But you also can't let doubt take over. Many people doubt the past, doubt the future, doubt each other, doubt the government, doubt the possibilities and doubt the opportunities. Worst of all, they doubt themselves. I'm telling you, doubt will destroy your life and your chances of success. It will empty both your bank account and your heart. Doubt is an enemy. Go after it. Get rid of it.

The fourth enemy within is worry. We've all got to worry some. Just don't let it conquer you. Instead, let it alarm you. Worry can be useful. If you step off the curb in New York City and a taxi is coming, you've got to worry. But you can't let worry loose like a mad dog that drives you into a small corner. Here's what you've got to do with your worries: Drive them into a small corner. Whatever is out to get you, you've got to get it. Whatever is pushing on you, you've got to push back.

The fifth interior enemy is over-caution. It is the timid approach to life. Timidity is not a virtue (unlike humility — they are different); in fact, it can be an illness. If you let it go, it'll conquer you. Timid people don't get promoted. They don't advance and grow and become powerful in the marketplace. You've got to avoid being overcautious.

Do battle with the enemy. Do battle with your fears. Build your courage to fight what's holding you back, what's keeping you from your goals and dreams. Be courageous in your life and in your pursuit of the things you want and the person you want to become.

Vitamin C reduces the frequency and severity of colds and improves physical activity in men

At a Glance:

A recent study suggests that vitamin C supplementation may result in measurable improvements in activity level and decrease the duration and severity of upper respiratory tract infections in college men with low-to-adequate vitamin C status during peak cold season.

Read more about this research below:

Although severe vitamin C deficiency resulting in scurvy is a rare occurrence in modern society, as many as 22% of U.S. adults are believed to have inadequate vitamin C status, with as many as 6% classified as vitamin C deficient.  

Insufficiencies are often undiagnosed because early symptoms of poor vitamin C status are not obvious and may include fatigue, malaise, depression and irritability.  

Inadequate vitamin C levels have also been associated with increased duration and severity of colds during the peak of cold season. 

In a new study published in the journal Nutrients, researchers examined the impact of vitamin C status on physical activity and upper respiratory tract infections during the winter months.  

The participants in this double-blind randomized trial included healthy, nonsmoking college men, with a marginal plasma vitamin C level, who were not training for or competing in sports. The men were randomized into one of two groups that received either 1000 mg of vitamin C/day or a placebo. Participants were given a booklet at the beginning of the study that contained the Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey-21, the Godin Leisure-Time Exercise Questionnaire, and a short food frequency measure. Over the course of the eight week study, the men completed the symptom survey daily, and the exercise and food frequency measures weekly.

During weeks 6-8 of the study, the physical activity score for the vitamin C supplemented group rose moderately compared to the placebo group. The number of cold episodes reported during the study was lower in the vitamin C group (7) compared to the placebo group (11), as was the reported duration of colds (reduced 59% versus placebo). 

Although this study was limited by a relatively small sample size, the results suggest that there may be measurable health advantages associated with vitamin C supplementation in men with adequate-to-low vitamin C status. Since this study was conducted during winter months and included only men with similar vitamin C status, more research is needed to determine whether these results can be extended to other populations and seasons.

Change Begins with Choice

by Jim Rohn 

Any day we wish, we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish, we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish, we can start a new activity. Any day we wish, we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately—or next week, or next month, or next year.

We can also do nothing. We can pretend rather than perform. And if the idea of having to change ourselves makes us uncomfortable, we can remain as we are. We can choose rest over labor, entertainment over education, delusion over truth and doubt over confidence. The choices are ours to make. But while we curse the effect, we continue to nourish the cause.

As Shakespeare uniquely observed, “The fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves.” We created our circumstances by our past choices. We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today. Those who are in search of the good life do not need more answers or more time to think things over to reach better conclusions. They need the truth. They need the whole truth. And they need nothing but the truth.

We cannot allow our errors in judgment, repeated every day, to lead us down the wrong path. We must keep coming back to those basics that make the biggest difference in how our life works out. And then we must make the very choices that will bring life, happiness and joy into our daily lives.
And if I may be so bold to offer my last piece of advice for someone seeking and needing to make changes in their life: If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree. You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life—and it all begins with your very own power of choice.

Higher vitamin D levels increase survival rate in postoperative adults with colorectal cancer

At a Glance:

A new research article published online suggests that having a higher plasma level of vitamin D is associated with a better chance of surviving colorectal cancer.

Read more about this research below:

Low vitamin D levels are known to be associated with poor health outcomes or increased risk in many diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and some cancers.   

In a new study published in the Journal of Oncology, researchers investigated whether the plasma level of vitamin D after a diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC) has a significant impact on survival outcome.  The Scottish research team analyzed data from 1,598 adults who had undergone surgery for stage I-III colorectal cancer.  Blood samples were taken after surgery and evaluated for vitamin D and for a specific Vitamin D gene receptor.

When compared to the patients with the lowest one-third of vitamin D levels, the patients whose vitamin D levels were in the top one-third of subjects had a significantly lower (32%) risk of dying of CRC and a 30% lower risk of dying from any cause during the 5 year follow-up period.  In patients with stage II CRC, those in the top one-third of vitamin D levels experienced a 56% reduction in mortality. 

The researchers found interactions between vitamin D levels and specific type of vitamin D gene receptor, indicating a causal relationship between vitamin D and survival.  

This study shows that in patients with stage I-III colorectal cancer, higher post-surgery vitamin D levels are associated with a better outcome and a lower risk of mortality.  Since this was an observational study, carefully designed clinical trials are still needed to confirm whether vitamin D supplementation would provide survival benefits for patients with colorectal cancer.

“I owe my success in USANA in large part to Pete. He has helped me navigate the world of network marketing since I opted to treat it seriously several years ago. He makes time to mentor me whenever I ask. I have never known him to be "too busy" and he is a very busy person with his own international business to oversee. His advice is always detailed, insightful, and makes a difference in my check on Friday. I have no doubt that the quicker I follow his example and advice, the sooner I will meet all my goals. Thank you, Pete!”

Elizabeth Pasquale, New York, Owner, Well On the Way LLC

“Pete is an amazing leader and has dedicated much of his time to helping others in USANA learn, grow and know what is going on in our community comprised of thousands of people. Both Pete and his wife have contributed greatly to the success of thousands of USANA associates as well as providing us with knowledge, insight and confidence in sharing the USANA vision with others. Everyone knows Pete and the hours he spends each day serving the needs of others is greatly appreciated by all. I can't wait until some day when I will reach Diamond Director status and be able to rub elbows with such greatness! Thanks again’re awesome and appreciated!”

Michael Nunnery, USANA Independent Associate

“I've known Pete Zdanis and his wife, Dora, for over sixteen years. During that time I've watch them build a successful business in network marketing and help many other people do the same. Pete and Dora are some of the top producers in USANA Health Sciences and have served as President of the Independent Distributor Council. In addition he has volunteered his time to help many others in the industry without any personal gain. I am proud to be considered one of Pete's business colleagues. You could not choose a better mentor.”
