Talented Chef Discovers Ingredients to a Better Life

Congratulations to Isagenix Millionaires No. 218, Nathan and Trudy Maples!

cookingWhen Trudy was introduced to Isagenix, she was no stranger to network marketing. In fact, she had been involved with a network marketing company selling kitchen tools and cookbooks for 19 years and was one of the company’s top sellers.

“A friend had been on my team at that company, and when I saw her experience a weight loss transformation, I decided to reach out and see what she was doing,” explained Trudy.

That friend replied to Trudy right away with a detailed message telling her about Isagenix. As the owner of her own cooking school and a top seller in the network marketing company, Trudy simply didn’t have time to consider another business.

“Meanwhile, she enrolled my sister, and I started watching her transform not only physically but also financially,” Trudy said. “She would tell me how happy she was to help people change their lives, and that really opened my eyes to the opportunity.”

Unlike Anything She’d Ever Seen

Initially, Trudy started her Isagenix journey to get healthy. Being in the food industry and running between two demanding businesses had left her at an unhealthy weight, and her sister was concerned.

“She started me on IsaLean® Shake, and I enrolled with a Weight Loss Value Pak,” said Trudy.

Once she was enrolled, her sister started showing Trudy different parts of the business, and Trudy couldn’t believe she had found such a great opportunity. It was unlike anything she had ever seen, and from that moment, she was ready to build a business and start changing as many lives as possible.

“I’m so glad I started Isagenix for my health, and the best part is being able to help so many people have this experience, too,” said Trudy. “I’m most passionate about helping others, and I love being able to help them regain their health and achieve their financial goals.”

Having an Incredible Year

leader-of-the-yearTrudy was excited about the potential she had at Isagenix and got to work. She built her business until she fell asleep at night, starting again as soon as she woke up in the morning. Her husband, Nathan, was so proud of her dedication, and Trudy was determined to reach her goal of retiring Nathan so they could build their business together.

“When I first came to Isagenix, I was just a sponge,” said Trudy. “I knew network marketing, but I didn’t know Isagenix and I wanted to learn everything I could about sharing this opportunity.”

She went to top leaders, earned as she learned, and shared her story when others asked about her physical transformation.

“I remember making a vision board, and I went into my Back Office under Contests and Promotions and printed every single contest that was going on,” said Trudy. “I participated in them all and had an incredible year.”

In 2016, Trudy was No. 1 in President’s Quest and No. 1 in IsaDerby™.

“The most incredible part was being honored as the 2016 Leader of the Year at the Gala Awards at Celebration 2016,” Trudy shared.

It’s All About the Team

teamNathan was able to retire last May, and since then, he and Trudy have been building their business together and feel so blessed to be working together as a team. When Trudy would have been away from home teaching cooking classes in the past, she and Nathan are now able to travel, host health and wellness events, and enjoy their free time together.

Trudy says the best advice she can give to succeed in this business is to have grit.

Trudy explained, “Grit is the secret to this. You just have to put your head down and go and not let anything stop you. Focus on personal development, be determined and persistent, and never let someone squash your dreams.”

“I am so passionate about building leaders in my organization, and having an amazing team makes for a huge impact,” Trudy continued. “Our team is beyond incredible and it’s all of us together that makes it a dream team!”
