Pride in our Industry

When someone asks me what I do for a living, I enthusiastically answer, “I’m with USANA Health Sciences – have you ever heard of it? It’s a network marketing company that has completely changed my life.”

I’m personally so proud of what I do I could shout it from the rooftops. Have I always felt this way? No. In 1994 when I first became involved in network marketing I believed it was necessary to distance USANA from our industry, to somehow convince others USANA wasn’t really a network marketing company, or at least not network marketing as I thought I knew it. I soon realized if I didn’t feel pride in what I was doing, it would show. I wouldn’t be able to attract the type of individuals I wanted and needed in my business. The pride I now feel when talking about our industry came through time, experience and education and I hope to shorten that learning curve for you.

In order to build a long-term residual income, we must have a rock solid belief in our industry as well as a passion for USANA. I often encourage people I’m working with to be involved in something bigger than they are. As a USANA distributor, you are part of an international 100 billion dollar industry. That’s billion…with a B! There are over fourteen million people in the United States involved in network marketing and over 55 million people involved worldwide. Our industry has grown steadily over the past twenty years with an astounding 91% growth over the past ten. If you are in USANA, you are part of the direct selling phenomenon…what Fortune Magazine calls, “the best kept secret of the business world.” And here’s the great news. Less than one percent of the world’s population is currently involved in our industry. Let’s see…with USANA expanding around the globe and you initially looking for TWO people to partner with…two of the tens of thousands who will join a direct selling company this week…well, you get my point. You can do this!

If you have any doubts whatsoever about the legitimacy of our industry I suggest you check out the website of the Direct Selling Organization of which USANA is a member. You can find them at: Another great tool (perfect as a pre-qualifying CD) is Business is Booming! available at: If you do your homework I believe you’ll find, as I have, network marketing is a business that allows you to hold your head up high…and possibly even shout from the rooftops!
