Our safe, effective, top-of-the-line products and fabulous opportunity will do just that. We want to partner with you on this journey as we continue to be at the forefront of nutritional health.

Here are ten time-tested tips to help jump-start your journey as an entrepreneur with PURE.

  1. Understand your audience — You must know your target market and their needs. Why does someone desire a better life? What can products by PURE do for them? Your job is to learn about your prospects and help them become the best versions of themselves. The fastest way to someone’s heart is to express interest in them!
  2. Be a product of the product — You can’t sell our products if you don’t use them. Familiarize yourself with the products, use them on a daily basis and experience their benefits. Only then will you be able to confidently share their benefits with others.
  3. Know your “Why” — Why do you want to start a PURE business for yourself? Do you want to experience freedom, discover a new challenge, make a difference, or share life-changing products with others? Perhaps you want to fund education, improve your home, travel the world or pay off a mortgage. Whatever it is, your “Why” is your belief.
  4. Rely on your upline — Contact the person who introduced you to PURE — they are a critical part in the learning process. They are great at giving you information you would have never thought of asking for. Believe and trust in your mentors. Ask questions. Success occurs when we partner in creating a shared reality.
  5. Educate yourself — Education goes right along with asking your upline questions. There is a plethora of information available to help you learn about PURE. Plug into livepure.com, product podcasts, and videos. Attend company events where you’ll get valuable training, meet likeminded people, and learn from the leaders.

  6. Use Social Media Facebook is a great space for getting to know your audience. Connect on an individual level, generate leads and expand your network. Social media is critical to your business success.
  7. Define your goals — What kind of results do you want, and when do you want to reach them? How will these results help you reach your goal? Focus on short- and long-term goals and be sure to write them down. Remember to be specific, optimistic and real.
  8. Stay consistent — Stay accountable to yourself, predictable to others, and relevant with your message. ALWAYS!
  9. Never fear failure — You know what you want and you have the determination to stand by that desire, no matter what. In Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich, he says that in order to reach whatever you seek, you first have to believe and have faith in your abilities. Believe in yourself and your ability to succeed.

Getting to know Mark and Kaedi Worley

When Independent Business Owners (IBOs) Mark and Kaedi Worley were introduced to the products and opportunity offered by PURE, they knew they had found something special! Their mission is to show families a new, better “normal.” Better health. Better finances. Better time with loved ones. Better way of life.

Before joining PURE, Mark and Kaedi owned a construction and landscape business for 20 years. They have always been entrepreneurs, highly driven who enjoy traveling, hunting, fishing, attending their children’s sports and participating in church activities in their hometown of Bixby, Oklahoma.

Before finding PURE they weren’t looking for a business opportunity, rather they were looking for a healthy change.

In 2015, their daughters’ voice coach asked them to watch a video. At that time, they considered themselves a typical American family. They had five busy teenagers, three who were competitive athletes. They were exhausted, busy, battling weight gain and unexpected expenses. They were caffeine addicted and trying to keep up with the daily grind. Their business controlled their time and finances.

Shortly after joining PURE, they made their first profit.** In about a month of taking the products and living a healthier lifestyle, Kaedi experienced weight loss.*

“In the landscape industry, when it rains for five straight weeks, you’re grateful for “side” income. Nothing held us back,” said Kaedi.

As Ruby Executive IBOs, the Worleys have made PURE their full-time focus. They are building a team across the country and it’s spreading to other continents. Their passion lies in sharing the products and opportunity with others so that they too may focus on their families and not let money make the decisions anymore.

“Our biggest “aha” moment was realizing that our dreams really could come true,” said Mark. “We got familiar with the simplicity of the system and discovered that we could live on our time and still make a significant income.  We could help people when we wanted not when we could. The products and opportunity offered by PURE fuel us to bring the gift of freedom to other people like us.”

When asked how they motivate each other, Kaedi said, “We push ourselves through the tough times because we are both athletes and know that what challenges you changes you. We are relentless in achieving our goals. There’s growth in sticking it out.”

The experiences relayed by Mark and Kaedi Worley are represented as their personal real life story as individuals who use our products; however, individual results may vary. We do not claim, nor should the reader assume, that any individual experience recounted here are typical or representative of what any other consumer might experience. This testimonial is not necessarily representative of what anyone else using our products may experience. Successful weight loss will consist of dietary modification and regular physical activity.

*Weight loss results may vary based on individual users. Products offered by PURE are designed to be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

**These results are not necessarily typical or average, nor do they represent a guarantee of your personal results. All earnings are based on the sale of products and depend largely on your efforts, abilities, and the market available to you.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, foster moms, and women in our community that are mother-like figures! To celebrate, we thought we’d share what we believe to be the special qualities moms have that make them exceptional entrepreneurs.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Men and women without children make great entrepreneurs, too. However, according to 2015 stats from the Direct Selling Association, 77.4% of direct sellers were women and 22.6% were men. Women have this networking thing down!

The following qualities give moms that extra oomph when it comes to being the boss.

  • Moms are great at multitasking. From making breakfast and getting the kids to school on time, while remembering to take Johnny to his dentist appointment, moms can juggle like nobody’s business. They need this quality in order to balance their business, the customers they’ll garner and any personal matters in play.
  • Moms cultivate relationships. They know how to network within their circle. They aren’t afraid of asking a stranger for directions, or introducing a new person to the team. They’ll take advantage of the education their mentor provides, asking the right questions until they understand.
  • Moms build trust. Moms will make you laugh, cry and share your story, all of which build trust. They will always give their children a reason to listen. Customers want to trust whom they are buying their products from. They want to trust that what they are purchasing is going to make a difference in their lives.
  • Moms prioritize and get things done. Moms know their limits and how to manage their time. When it comes to charging your phone or charging your body, moms instinctively know what’s best and what will end up being more productive in the long run. In this business, one has to be able to turn “busy” into “productive”.
  • Moms can make anything out of the ordinary. She can turn junk mail into a paper airplane, a glove into a puppet or a box into a dollhouse. Entrepreneurs need creativity to create campaigns that stand out. It helps to be social media savvy as well; that’s where connections really happen.

We love all of our mom’s at PURE, and we wish everyone and their families a very happy and healthy Mother’s Day.

To all of our moms out there, may your day be filled with love and Whole Health!

The company has paid out an astounding $1,134,250.00 in Rank Advancement bonuses to date.

In the kitchen with Mila® micro-sliced chia

Mila micro-sliced chia seed is a super food that is gluten-free, trans-fat free, sugar-free, and a superior plant-based source of protein and fiber. Mila uses different varieties of the chia seed to provide a wide array of nutrients. By combining these chia seed varieties, you get a nutritionally robust product.

Because of its mild flavor, Mila is a versatile ingredient that can be incorporated into a variety of dishes to enhance their nutritional value.  Just how nutritious is Mila?

  • Gram for gram, Mila is one of the richest whole-food sources of dietary fiber and omega-3 fats (ALA).
  • The fiber found in Mila is predominantly insoluble fiber, a form of fiber that is especially beneficial to the digestive tract. It supports intestinal regularity and promotes good bowel health, slows digestion of food to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and supports weight loss by helping you feel full for a longer period of time.
  • Studies have illustrated improved cardiovascular health among those with a high intake of ALA containing foods like Mila.*

Below are some recipes using Mila; you can also try Mila in your recipes. Add Mila as a substitution to an ingredient already in a recipe. You can also use it as an addition without taking away from the flavor or consistency of the original recipe. Add to cereals, smoothies, beverages, and salads. Learn more about Mila here.

Egg-cellent Recipes

In honor of Easter and the tradition of hunting Easter eggs, we have some delicious egg recipes to share with you. The first one incorporates Mangosteen Superfruit juice and the second one uses Greens, both products by PURE. Not only do I love eggs for breakfast and brunch, but I’ll eat them for lunch and dinner, too.

Eggs are a nutrient-dense food. They contain high-quality protein, they offer all nine essential amino acids, and they’re a great source of vitamin D. They also contain vitamin A, vitamin B12, riboflavin (B2) and the antioxidant selenium, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin, which help keep our eyes healthy.

Yes, the yolk does contain high dietary cholesterol, but it is also low in saturated fat, an important factor. Because of this, eggs get a thumb’s up from the government’s 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

These recipes are a great way to introduce the products to others, and a way to offer healthy alternatives the whole family can enjoy.

Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Mangosteen Sauce  

 Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons Mangosteen Superfruit juice
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 4 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 8 oz. smoked salmon, sliced into 1 oz. pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped dill (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat 2-3 inches of water, vinegar and 1 teaspoon salt in large saucepan to boiling. Adjust heat to keep liquid simmering. Break eggs, one at a time, into small bowl. Hold dish close to surface of pan and slip egg into water.
  2. Cook eggs until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 3-5 minutes. Do not stir. Lift eggs from water with slotted spoon; drain well on platter lined with paper towels. Keep warm.
  3. Whisk egg yolks, water, Mangosteen juice and lemon juice in a small saucepan until blended. Cook over low heat whisking constantly, until mixture is foamy and small bubbles appear. Whisk in the butter slices, one piece at a time, until butter is melted and sauce is thickened. Remove pan from heat immediately.
  4. Spread muffin halves with remaining butter. Arrange muffin halves on plates and top with salmon. Place an egg over salmon, top with sauce and sprinkle with dill.
