Six and a half years later, they have received the Rising and Shooting Star awards and have been Top Leadership Pool earners. Ross and Danielle are proud to be START Ambassadors and love to educate young people about this beautiful business model that has transformed their lives.

Hilari and her husband, Justin, build their Isagenix business as a team. Each has found their unique role, and together, they want to show other families what is possible.
This Isagenix Millionaire* has earned numerous awards, such as Isagenix Rising Star, the Spirit of Isagenix award in 2010, and the Woman of the Year award in 2012. The accolades are truly appreciated, but Hilari believes her greatest assets to success are her husband and their five children, Lucas, Kaedyn, Emersyn, Fischer, and Deacon.

Becca Johnson, Isagenix Millionaire,* 8-Star Golden Circle, 4-Star Executive
Prior to Isagenix, Becca was the founder of Performance Kids, a sports and fitness program for preschoolers. While she enjoyed it, she always felt a deeper calling to impact others on a larger scale, but she didn’t have the resources or the right platform to do it. At the same time, she also longed for more financial flexibility so she and her husband could have more time with their two young children.
When Isagenix entered her life, she was resistant at first, but as she began to attend the core Isagenix events, she caught the vision and was inspired by the mission to impact world health with thousands of other like-minded people.
During the last six years, Becca and her husband, Ryan, have both retired from their previous professions by building an organization of inspired team members with a mission to transform lives. She is humbled and honored to serve and share with you.
Cathy Savage, Isagenix Millionaire,* 12-Star Platinum, 14-Star Crystal Executive
As an international fitness coach, presenter, and entrepreneur, Cathy led a crazy, busy life. She trained clients and spoke at conferences around the world, all while being a loving mother of two. When one of Cathy’s clients first introduced her to Isagenix, her immediate answer was “no!” After seeing the impact the products were having on her clients, Cathy couldn’t put them off any longer. She began fueling her body with the products and saw great results. She hadn’t realized how exhausted and worn out she was mentally and physically, until she understood she no longer was. Finally believing in the products and the company, Cathy began building her business. Now, this Isagenix Millionaire* gets to be present in her children’s lives and can leverage her time to spend with the people she loves, which she believes is the greatest gift.
Tanya Kirkpatrick, Isagenix Millionaire,* 13-Star Platinum, 13-Star Crystal Executive
As a busy mom, women’s ministry leader, and eyelash technician, Tanya was rundown and fatigued. Both she and her husband, Jeremy, struggled with work-related stress, health issues, and a lack of energy. When she was introduced to Isagenix, Tanya was skeptical at first, but after seeing and feeling the results of the products, she knew she had to tell people about them. After setting and achieving her goal of reaching Isagenix Millionaire* status, Tanya now spends her days helping her team, coaching them to persevere and be open to growing, and inviting them to dream with her.
Chris Harder, Isagenix Millionaire,* 14-Star Platinum, 13-Star Executive
Connect, Present, and Duplicate
Chris spent years working high-stress, time-demanding jobs, first as an executive of a large-scale international bank and then as a partner in a startup mortgage brokerage. Although he was very successful, Chris was exhausted, unhappy, and wanted a way out. When Chris’ wife, Lori, was introduced to Isagenix by her fitness client, Holly, she and Chris were skeptical at first. Holly finally convinced Lori to try the products, and she saw incredible changes in her energy, mood, and body. Chris joined Lori and began to use the Isagenix products regularly. It wasn’t until the couple attended their first event that they started thinking about pursuing the business opportunity. They left that event with two feet in, ready to lock arms with the Isagenix family and ready to grow their business. This Isagenix Millionaire* now gets to do something he is passionate about and works alongside his lovely wife to help others transform their lives.
Chris is taking the NYKO stage to share his tips to successfully connecting with people and replicating that success time and again.
We can’t wait to see you all at NYKO 2018. Let’s kick off the year with an amazing event.

*An Isagenix Millionaire is an Independent Associate to whom Isagenix has paid a gross total of $1 million or more since joining Isagenix. Earnings reflect gross amounts that do not include any business expenses. Earning levels or income statements (including claims such as the ability to quit a job or stay at home or portrayals of luxury lifestyles) for the Isagenix Independent Associates discussed here exceed the average results achieved by all Associates during the same time period, are not necessarily representative of the success or compensation that any particular Associate will receive, and should not be construed as typical or average. The ability to earn income under the Isagenix Compensation Plan depends on many factors including an individual Associate’s business, social, and sales skills; personal ambition and activity; availability of time and financial resources; and access to a large network of family, friends, and business contacts. Isagenix cannot and does not guarantee any particular level of earnings. Even Associates who dedicate a significant amount of time, effort, and personal funds may not achieve a meaningful level of success. For average earnings, refer to the Isagenix Earnings Disclosure Statement at IsagenixEarnings.com.

Weight loss, muscle gain, lifestyle, and other results depicted here reflect exceptional individual experiences of Isagenix Customers and should not be construed as typical or average.
