I first met Werner Berger in 1994 and realized then there was something exceptional about him. Werner has taught me that age need not be a factor holding us back. Werner summited Mt. Everest on May 22, 2007, just 55 days short of his 70th birthday. At the time he summited, he became the third oldest person in the world and the oldest North American to reach the highest point on earth.
I had the opportunity to spend some time with Werner during the recent USANA Leadership Summit in Ireland. While there Werner shared a copy of the new DVD that tells his remarkable story and how the USANA supplements helped him accomplish his dream. Frankly, I was blown away.
To put Werner’s passion about USANA products in perspective, most high altitude climbers cut their toothbrush handles in half and drill holes in just about everything else to save on weight. In contrast, Werner packed fifteen pounds of USANA products up the mountain. He considered them absolutely vital for his 56-day climb!
To learn more about Werner and to watch a short clip about his amazing accomplishments please go to Werner’s website: www.wernerbergerstory.com. Werner is a true hero in every sense of the word. I’m delighted his story is now available to all of us. I plan to use Werner’s DVD in my prospecting. I can’t imagine anyone watching it and not saying, “I’ve got to try those products!”
Thank you Werner for the inspiration you provide for all the USANA family.
