Nerium: A Ripple Story from Natalie

By January 21, 2013Brand Partners, Stories

Because Nerium is devoted to “Making People Better,” we launched The Nerium Ripple program, which challenges its Brand Partners to individually take responsibility and collectively change the world. Here’s a Ripple Story from Natalie, a real Nerium Brand Partner who strives to create a better world by paying it forward:I’m a stay-at-home mom of six children; five girls and one boy. My husband has a great job. I wasn’t really looking for something else to take up my time. But when I was introduced to Nerium by a good friend of mine, I just had to take a look.

This friend and I have been close for years, and I have always looked up to her. She is one of the kindest, most genuine people I have ever met. I knew that if she was involved with a company, it must be an honest and upright venture.

Today, I’m a proud Independent Brand Partner for Nerium International. The more time I spend in this position, the more I realize why Nerium is so successful. I have very high standards for myself and my family. We believe in being honest in all of our dealings no matter the cost. We believe in service and in giving back. We believe that family is of the utmost importance. It is very hard in today’s world to find a company that has those same standards.

I knew that if I was going to take any time away from my family, it had to be with a company that has standards congruent with mine. My husband and I have been very blessed, and we have always done our best to help others in need. The Nerium Ripple is such a great concept to stand behind! I support it wholeheartedly.

A Simple Act That has Affected Me and Others

My Ripple Story isn’t anything grand or amazing. It was a simple act that has affected me and others that I would have never known without the Nerium Ripple program.

I live in Bakersfield, Calif., and became a Brand Partner on August 20, 2012. I would normally have attended the Anaheim Bash, but I had other obligations that weekend, so I decided to attend the Dallas Bash in September instead. My mother and my sponsor attended with me.

The night they announced the team-up with Big Brothers Big Sisters, I decided to contribute $100 to the cause. I later found out about the two bottles of free NeriumAD that comes with donations. I told my mother, “We can’t keep these bottles to use to further our business. We need to give these bottles away to someone who deserves them.”

Shortly thereafter, two men behind us on the escalator (one from Minnesota and one from South Dakota) saw my Nerium bag and asked what I was selling. So,selling, so my mother and I told them about NeriumAD. They were very interested.

We talked with them for a bit and said we would get them more information. When my mother and I were alone again, I said, “Mom, this is perfect. We need to give each of them one of our free bottles.” So, we did.

A week later, I called the man from South Dakota and asked him how he and his wife, Jennifer, liked the product. He said that Jennifer loved it and wanted more information. This began a correspondence between us about the business opportunity. Jennifer signed up to be a Brand Partner on Oct. 16, 2012. She became a Director and qualified for a free iPad in just two days. Her mother in Minnesota signed up as well and became a Director in two days as well!

I had about ten people join my team in a matter of one week. I now have friends and business partners in South Dakota and Minnesota, which never would have happened without Nerium’s partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the fact that Nerium offers free bottles for donations Nerium’s generosity, and my decision to give the bottles away to total strangers.

The Effects Ripple Out…

I share this story because through this small act, the effects ripple out. I know this is just the beginning of great changes that will come about from the awareness Nerium International passes on to its Brand Partners. Thank you for what you stand for and thank you for letting me share my story.
