Congratulations to Isagenix Millionaires No. 115
Paul and Suzanne were successful network marketers living and working in Indonesia when the unthinkable happened. “One day,” recalls Suzanne, “we went to the door of the office and the office was closed. It was gone. It was an absolutely devastating day.”
It was the start of a year when “everything went wrong.” After the company shut down operations, Paul and Suzanne lost everything, including their home. They returned to Australia – Suzanne in a wheelchair after a serious accident – and had to borrow money for food and rent that Christmas.
The next month, Joe, a friend from another network marketing company, called Paul and Suzanne to tell them about Isagenix. They weren’t ready to start another network marketing business, but Joe convinced them to try the products.
Paul remembers, “I was way overweight. I had a big, fat stomach and I was stressed out. So I said I’d give it a go.” He lost 28 kilos (about 60 pounds) and 29 inches.* “The great thing about it,” says Paul, “I’ve kept it off for over three and a half years and I feel fantastic. This is the best I’ve felt in 30 years.”
Suzanne didn’t have much weight to lose, but she tried the products too. “I felt like a light had been switched on inside me. I felt great. I felt vibrant. I felt excited!” she recalls.
After experiencing the products, Paul and Suzanne started to consider building an Isagenix business. “I was incredibly cynical,” says Suzanne. “It took a lot of courage to start again and it’s a bit like falling in love.” After meeting Co-Founders Jim and Kathy Coover and learning more about the company, Paul and Suzanne fell “completely and madly in love with Isagenix.”
“Jim and Kathy come from the heart,” says Paul. “That’s how we build the business here in Australia – just coming from the heart and sharing our stories.”
Paul and Suzanne were sharing the products for a year, before they realized they were missing something. “We didn’t realize for a year,” recalls Suzanne, “that we also had this incredible, amazing opportunity that would change people’s lives. We were talking about it, but not enough. The moment we started to do that, everything changed for us.”
Paul adds, “As soon as we focused on the business and helping other people become successful, our business exploded.”
Paul and Suzanne, now 8-Star Platinum, 4-Star Executive, are among the top leaders in our Australia and New Zealand market. In fact, they’re our newest Isagenix Millionaires and second Millionaires in Australia and New Zealand. They have built a large, strong and successful team – over 27,800 strong – on their journey to personal success.
“What really excites us is how many people we’ve helped retire and live the dream life – a life of financial and physical freedom,” Suzanne shares.
Paul and Suzanne’s lives have changed drastically since they left Indonesia. “We wake up grateful and we go to bed grateful,” says Suzanne. Now they enjoy a life of purpose. They are able to travel, see the world and help others. “We’re incredibly grateful for our team,” emphasizes Suzanne. “We will be with Isagenix forever.”
Paul and Suzanne credit the Isagenix community – from corporate leaders like Jim, Kathy and Erik Coover; Master Formulator and Founder John Anderson; leaders in Australia and New Zealand like Sharron Walsh, Angus Love and Sandy Cantin.
“I believe one of the major keys to our success in Australia is that we’re one community, one family,” says Paul.
