What Are the Trip Incentives?

AdvoCare Trip Incentives 2016-2017

AdvoCare Hawaii was amazing!  NYC is Next!*

When I joined AdvoCare 3 years ago I had no idea how much it would change my life for the better.

Twice a year AdvoCare has Incentive trips that all AdvoCare Adivisors have an opportunity to earn.

What I love about this contest is that everyone starts at zero on the day they announce the new trip incentive.

Most all of the incentives have similar rules and ways to qualify.

It is usually all NEW volume under NEW distributors and Preferred Customers during a certain time period.

So on November 28th 2016 we went to Hawaii for my first incentive trip!

I will make sure and give you all the details when we get back!

advocare trips

This is just one of the ways AdvoCare compensates you for sharing with others the products or opportunity.

So from everything I can tell this will be a 5 star trip of a lifetime that my husband and I would not splurge on ourselves.

We are staying at the Four Seasons Lanai which looks like an Amazing resort!!

Airfare, meals and excursions are paid for!!

The next trip that we won was the New York City in April 2017!

This trip includes staying at the Plaza Hotel, shopping, sites, and more!

When I was growing up our family did travel some and those were the memories I love to think about.

So I have always had a love for travel!

I even worked as a travel agent part time many years ago for the discounted trips my husband and I would go on before kids :)

So if traveling the globe on 5 star vacations all expense paid is something you would LOVE to do, let me help you get there through AdvoCare!

If I can do this you can too!  I can help you with a step by step system to help you earn all of the perks that AdvoCare offers including TRIPS!!

Why Start a Network Marketing Business?

If you’ve thought at all about your income situation or your future, including retirement, you may be wondering how you can add more income into your life!

Of course there are a number of ways to do this but I really prefer network marketing and I’ll explain why below.

Why Network Marketing?

So if you had to think of the perfect job what would it be?

Most people would say this:

  • no boss
  • flexible schedule
  • no income cap
  • work with who I want to
  • helping others
  • good training
  • great products or service

Well Network Marketing can incorporate all of these!

The above points may answer why network marketing is better than a “job”.

Although it’s not for everyone, network marketing can be an incredible opportunity if you can understand and implement a few things correctly.

In my video I will explain some of the pros and cons of Network Marketing and how to look for the right company.

Get started with me and let me help you meet your goals!

Why Join a Network Marketing Company

Here are some statistics I believe are important for people to understand when thinking about joining a network marketing company.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 

Out of 100 people that start working at the age of 25, by the age of 65

  • 1 is wealthy
  • 4 have enough money to retire
  • 63 depend on social security or charity
  • 29 are deceased

So 95% of people 65 and over can not afford to retire and work until they die!

Kind of grim statistics if I do say so myself….

I’m in my mid 40’s and watching my parents continue to work past the age of 65 has been an eye opener for me.

No longer are the days of working for the same company for many years and retiring with a healthy 401K and living the glory years on the beach.

why network marketing is better than a job

So how can Network Marketing help you?

One word….Leverage!

With the network marketing profession you can leverage your Time and Money.

What does this mean exactly?

The work you put into your business upfront can pay you many years to come residual income.

Your time will work in your favor as you sponsor other people and their time is multiplied the more people you have working in your organization the more your time is being leveraged.

For most people right now you get paid an hourly wage or a salary depending on what your boss thinks your worth is as an employee.

With Network Marketing, other people’s time and efforts help compound with yours and what I love is your goal is to help others succeed so you can succeed as well.

In this business if your not helping others meet their goals you won’t meet your goals!

It has to be a win win for this to work.

I think a lot of people have the misconception that you can sign up one person, sit back and do nothing and the cash will start rolling in.

This is just not true.

But…If you help enough people get what they want you will get what you want in return and I like that business model.

I believe in helping others which is what attracted me to this industry.

Because the start up cost is so reasonable, you don’t have the huge investment you would starting a typical small business.

why network marketing Robert Kiyosaki

Technology and Network Marketing

Before the internet Network Marketing looked way different.

Here are a few things that have changed thanks to technology.

  • you no longer have to store products if you don’t want to-the company can ship the products directly to your customers you don’t even have to handle it if you don’t want to.
  • Most companies have an online site or store that you get upon enrollment so people can go straight to your site and see your products or services instead of mailing them catalogs or brochures.
  • Companies keep track of sales and record your sales information including your paychecks which helps with accounting or manually keeping track of receipts.
  • You can advertise your business on social media or a website to get more exposure out there and expand your reach for customers and new distributors
  • By using email, texting, and private messaging, you have more ways to connect and contact your customers or team.
  • Training’s can be done online through webinars, skype, or videos

why network marketing is the way of the future

So What are Some Things You Need to be Successful in Network Marketing?

Treat Network Marketing Like a Business

This is probably one of the biggest mistakes most network marketers make when it come to starting their business.

They don’t see it as a “real” business but more like a hobby or something they will try out for a few months.

There is nothing wrong with people who do this by the way.

The only thing I’m saying is that you can’t expect to get paychecks if it’s a hobby and you need to understand that up front.

There are a few things that I know I had to understand myself before really taking this profession seriously and you may be the same way.

  • I needed to understand the industry and believe in the business model
  • I needed to believe in my company and it’s products
  • I needed to see the success of others to realize it’s possible
  • I needed to trust my mentors and what they were teaching me
  • I needed to believe in myself!

Once I had a grasp on these things I began really taking this business seriously and treating it like one.

Work Consistently on Your Business

why network marketing works

If you work a little here and there and then stop, your not going to see great results.

If you want to be taken seriously in network marketing you also need to stick with it and stay consistent with your outreach, training, and customer service.

If your doing any kind of social media with your business that must be consistent as well.

It’s important to post things every day if you can.

If you get overwhelmed with too many social media outlets then narrow it down to 1-2 and get really good at those.

Don’t Quit Your Network Marketing Business

I see this a lot with people.

Look I’ll be real honest here… most people in this industry have thought about quitting at one point or another.

There are days I have felt like quitting myself BUT I remind myself why I started and that continuing the work will only bring results.

Quitting too soon is something that people do but I wish for their sake they wouldn’t.

I can’t tell you how many people I talked to years ago have been watching me and are now coming around to doing the business.

If I would have quit they would have moved on to another distributor.

So moral here is DON’T QUIT!!

why network marketing works

Personal Development to Up Your Game

Ok how many times have you heard this from major mlm leaders??

You have to work on yourself before you can become the leader you need to be to grow a large organization.

It’s true and I’m still a work in progress!

I decided to take this seriously in August 2015 and my income has just about doubled since then.

I think part of it is helping you BELIEVE in YOURSELF!

Which I will admit was hard for me at first.  I wasn’t sure if I could do this gig.

But the other important take away is the personal development help you become better and helps you attract better leaders who will take off on your team.

I am at all times reading at least one book sometimes 2-3 on audible.

Just finished Go for No! by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz.

I am currently listening to The Success Principles by Jack Canfield.

I love Eric Worre and watch his videos on his site as well.

I also am a member of other high level training’s one in particular that has taught me a lot is a social media training by million dollar earner Hayley Hobson.

Anyway- keep learning as much as you can from great leaders and that will help you go far!

I hope this post gave you some insight on what network marketing is and Why Network Marketing could be great for you!

How Much do Distributors Make?

This question is a good one.  It’s important to know how much money you could make once you become a “business builder”.  To look deeper into the AdvoCare compensation plan you can see this post.

Here is the income disclosure for current people in the business.

Advocare Distributor Questions?

1. Do I have to be an Advisor?

In order to receive the full 40% off sales and earn income 5 ways, you do need to get to the advisor level.  I can show you a quick way to get to Advisor and possible get the $500 Rookie Bonus Advocare gives out to new Advisors. Read more about how to become an Advocare Advisor.

2. What if I don’t want to market online?

That is fine! Myself, sponsor, and my team are more than capable to help you achieve your goals with AdvoCare in the way that works best for you.  We are here to help!

3. I’m not really a salesy kind of person. How can I do this?

That is perfect! You are just the type of person I am looking for. You need to be yourself!  Share the products you love with people you know in a number of non-salesy ways!

4. I don’t know enough people to be a successful network marketer?

I understand this.  Most people do not have a “network” of people they can tap into.  This is where using online methods can supplement your business.  If your coach-able, you can also meet new people and begin to gain confidence and make new friends while helping others at the same time.

5.  What if I have no money to start an AdvoCare business?

I understand not having money to get started. If you don’t have money to get started, ask yourself if what your doing now is going to bring you more income?

Look-for $79 you are getting all of the tools you really need to get started.  You’ll have Spark  samples to give to people to try and you’ll have training and marketing materials. If you join with me you’ll have plenty of additional training to get you started right away as well.

6.  Don’t I need to try the products first?

Yes you do.  You will get sample products in your distributor kit to try.   In this business you really earn as you learn! Your not going to have tried every product before you get started making income.

I know many people who started the Challenge and got other distributors to join during the cleanse phase because of the results they were seeing.  People will notice a change in you and ask you what your up to!

Additionally, the Spark alone is what gets most people to join.

7.  What if I’m already a distributor under someone else?

I built this website to help anyone with the AdvoCare products and business.  That being said, I reserve my more detailed training for my distributors.  AdvoCare has a strict policy on switching sponsors unless you resign as a distributor for 6 months.

8. What if I have very limited time? How will this work?

This is understandable as well.  For the most part we are all living very busy lives.  The great thing about this business is that you can work as little or as much as you want.  Just sharing with people throughout your day is huge and you can really begin to see growth in you business.

If you could find 1 focused hour a day to devote to the internet sales part you would be surprised how much you can get done.  I can show you some very inexpensive ways I double my time for my business.

If your ready to get started and you want to join, click on the Distributor button below:

join advocare business

What do I get when I become a distributor?

Great question!  Here is what’s in the Distributor Kit:

  • You get to purchase products at a discount starting at 20% off up to 40% as an Advisor
  • You can earn a profit on retail sales
  • You can earn a profit on wholesale commissions
  • You are able at this level to then advance to the Advisor level and earn income 5 different ways.

You get a distributor kit and the Kit is $59.

What I also love is that there are NO Minimum order amounts every month!

You also get your own website to share with others and order yourself.  Once you are a distributor you will use your own site to login to and purchase products at a discount.

If your only looking to join AdvoCare for the discounts and have no intention of selling you need to read my post on the new Preferred Customer Program!

advocare new kit

AdvoCare Distributor Cost

As mentioned above, the AdvoCare distributor kit cost is $59 plus tax and shipping.  This cost will get you everything in the kit listed above, a website for you to sell your AdvoCare products from, the potential to earn income through the AdvoCare company, Free Debtbuster system to help people learn the principals of debt, money, and investing.

There is nothing wrong with joining just for just the discount as well.  Many people do this. Either way there are no monthly minimums to purchase and the only fee to remain a distributor is a $50 annual fee.  Here is a video explaining the AdvoCare discount.

AdvoCare Distributor Support

One of the great things about the AdvoCare company is the support you get from not only your team members, but from other people in AdvoCare.  It’s important to be able to go to someone in your upline or your sponsor and get questions answered that you may have about AdvoCare or AdvoCare products.

If you do decide to become an AdvoCare Distributor,

How Long Does it Take to Get the AdvoCare Distributor Kit?

I get this questions a lot actually!  All I can say on this one is that most orders and kits seem to arrive for people rather quickly.  When I place an order I usually get it within 3-5 business days.  I know on the orders they show you the date of when you receive your items before you check out.  This is a fairly new option.  I believe they show this for the kits as well but not 100% positive on that one.

So now that you know what comes in the AdvoCare distributor kit, the AdvoCare distributor kit cost, and how long it takes to get the AdvoCare kit, maybe it’s time to get one!

Get the AdvoCare Kit HERE

AdvoCare DebtBuster System

As I mentioned above one of the items you can get as an AdvoCare distributor is the DebtBuster System.  This is a free simple debt reduction strategy that helps with showing you how to reduce credit card debt and gaining control over your finances for life!  There is a free workbook and DVD that will help show you effective ways to get out of debt and use your AdvoCare income to work toward debt freedom.

This is a great system that I personally use.  It’s kind of common sense, but it helps to see what kind of debt you have and where to start with eliminating it.

A Proven System:

AdvoCare has been in business since 1993 and offers a proven vehicle for success.  The AdvoCare products and business opportunity are poised to meet growing numbers of Americans who are searching for answers to meet their health and financial goals.

More Questions?

I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about the AdvoCare Distributor Kit or anything AdvoCare!  To join for $59 plus tax and shipping and get your NEW Kit, click below!

It’s about Savings NOT necessarily Selling!  You do not have to sell to get the product discounts.

Advo Champion Highlight

NPC Competitor Cali Victoria Caulder

When your involved with  AdvoCare you get to meet amazing people with different backgrounds and from all walks of life.

I thought it would be fun to highlight champions and tell their story here on the blog!

Today I’m highlighting an awesome friend and fitness professional Cali Victoria Caulder! 

She is a Certified Personal Trainer and a NPC Competitor (National Physique Committee)

She is a spunky fun loving girl that goes after what she wants and has that fighter spirit that’s contagious. 


Cali and I actually met originally a few years back when she was coaching my kids soccer team.  We reconnected through Facebook a few months ago and I shared AdvoCare with her.

She immediately (and I mean immediately) caught the vision of what AdvoCare could do for her physically and financially and jumped on board!

So for this post I did a little Q and A so you could get to know this champion better!



Me: What made you decide to get into fitness?

Cali: I decided to get into fitness because I knew I wanted to better myself.  I realized that being fit could only be done by myself.  No one else can lift the weights for me and eat for me.  I also have a passion for helping others become more and reach their full potential.

Me:  When did you get started in your fitness career?

Cali:  I got started when I was 17 and walked on stage at 18 for my first figure competition. The competition was the South Carolina Excalibur NPC Figure Competition  I came in 4th place overall in that first show and it was such a highlight in my life.  I worked really hard to get there and was pleased with my showing.  I am now 19 and plan on doing 3 shows this year in 2016.


cali npc competition

Me:  What impact has AdvoCare had on your life so far?

Cali:  AdvoCare has changed my life more than I could have ever imagined.  My body is growing and I am seeing more muscles that I have never seen before. I also love sharing AdvoCare with others and am seeing the benefits with my clients as well.

I’ve only been an AdvoCare distributor since January 2016 and have been using many of the products especially the Performance Elite Line to get ready for upcoming shows and am amazed at the transformation I’m seeing in just a few short months.

This picture shows my transformation after just 4 weeks on AdvoCare products!

cali before and after advocare

I want to help change people’s lives and give them the same chance that I had to better myself.

cali and advocare

Thank you Cali for your time and for sharing your story with us.  I look forward to watching you grow in your career as a personal trainer and as an AdvoCare champion! I also can’t wait to see how you crush it in these upcoming competitions!

How to Make Money as a Personal Trainer

How to Make Money as a Personal Trainer

Becoming a personal trainer can be a fun and rewarding career.  I personally have a lot of friends who are fitness trainers and they enjoy helping others and love what they do.

Over the the last 18 years my husband has run many fitness centers and I have met a lot of trainers during that time.

But I have noticed a trend in the trainers I know and meet and that is the lack of money they make for their services and having trouble scaling their business to a higher level.

So I wanted to write a post on how to make more money as a personal trainer.make money personal training

Here are some common issues that personal trainers face when looking to make money training:

  • There are only so many hours in a day to train, trading hours for dollars
  • Most hourly wages for personal training is minimal
  • Once a client leaves you, your income leaves as well
  • If you do not get your clients the results they are looking for, they may quit training
  • You have little to no control over what they put in their bodies when your not training them
  • The nutritional products your clients buy you do not get a commission from

Here are some ideas for bringing in more income as a personal trainer:

  • Have group sessions for additional revenue
  • Use a membership model if you can for monthly income

Personal Trainers and AdvoCare

Here is what I love about the AdvoCare company and how it is a perfect fit for people in the fitness industry.

  • The AdvoCare Products Work
  • The Products are Safe
  • The Products work together
  • The products are tested for banned substances through Informed Choice
  • The products are used by professionl athletes who only get paid a product allowance
  • The company has been in business since 1993
  • The company has multi million dollar marketing campaigns through sports and national television
  • You do not have to stock any product if you do not want to,  Your clients can purchase from your website and have them shipped directly to them.
  • You are making money from your clients even after they stop training with you in a number of possible ways.

So let’s break each of these down:

    1.  The AdvoCare Products Work- as a trainer you want your clients to get results and your clients want to see results.  The AdvoCare products are another tool for you to use to help them achieve what they are looking for.  Hundreds of thousands of people use AdvoCare products for many different reasons and see results whether it’s weight loss, muscle gain, building their immunity, increased energy, and more.
    2. The Products are Safe- AdvoCare products are safe and effective.  They are designed by the science and medical advisory board who are comprised of some of the best and brightest doctors and scientists at the top of their field of specialty.  They are rigorously tested for product research and development. The AdvoCare company is also a part of the Counsel for Responsible Nutrition.


    1. The Products Work Together- With AdvoCare’s wide range of product lines and products you want to be reassured that the products your recommending work together like they are supposed to for the best results and highest safety.

    1. Products are Used by Many Non Paid Endorsers- Currently AdvoCare has a long list of professional athletes who get paid through product allowance.  If the Pros can use AdvoCare, you know it’s good enough for you and your clients.
    2. The AdvoCare Company was Founded in 1993-With so many new products that come and go in the fitness industry, it’s great to know that AdvoCare is not a fly by night company that will be out of business before you know it.  You can trust that when your clients use the products they can continue to use them for years to come.
    3. AdvoCare has high profile sponsorships for marketing and credibility-AdvoCare is the official sports nutrition sponsor for Major League Soccer.  AdvoCare also sponsors many high profile sporting events like opening college football games, Nascar, college basketball, and more.  This lends more credibility to you as a trainer as your clients see the AdvoCare brand associated with various professional and collegiate sports programs.

The Power of Residual Income

Network Marketing and Residual Income

According to Anthony (Tony) Robins, popular motivational speaker and business consultant, in his interview with Eric Worre from Network Marketing Pro said, the worst thing you can do that will waste your time and life is trade hours for dollars!

Have you ever thought about that?  I think  a lot of people grow up believing that we should go to high school, then college, study for some field we want to be in, and then work in that field the rest of our lives and somehow be fulfilled with that perfect job!

The reality is life doesn’t always turn out that way! Currently your lucky to even get a job after graduating college much less get a job you really like!

Earning Residual Income

Obviously there are a number of ways to earn a living in America today.  Most jobs consist of trading dollars for hours.  But what if you can take the hours you spend working and over time those hours multiply to a number far greater than an 8 hour work day.

What if your time invested was making you money down the road when maybe you were not even working as much?

This is possible with an investment business model or a residual business model like direct sales and multi level marketing.

Residual Income Through Network Marketing

So what is residual income anyway?

Here is a definition:

(also called passive, or recurring income) is income that continues to be generated after the initial effort has been expended. Compare this to what most people focus on earning: linear income, which is “one-shot” compensation or payment in the form of a fee, wage, commission or salary.

So what if there was a way to work part time with your current situation and start building your fortune?

What if you could spend 5-10 concentrated hours a week working toward debt freedom, time freedom, or just extra fun money??

This is what I am currently working on and toward with AdvoCare!  What I love about this business model is that I get paid when I help others get paid.  It’s in my best interest to help you win in order for me to win.

This isn’t a business of just signing people up and walking away!  It’s helping each person realize their dreams or aspirations in order for my dreams to come true.

help others win

The rewarding part of this business is that you do get to see others hit their goals and achieve things they want for your life and it’s such a blessing to be a part of this.

It’s a Simple concept but is not always Easy!  Is there work involved?….Yes!

Do you have to stretch yourself out of your comfort zone?……Yes!

Will people say NO?……Yes!

Will it be Worth it?…….Yes!

Imagine having a team of people all working toward the common good of helping others and even while your sleeping or on vacation you still get paid.

It’s similar to royalties in a way.  You get a portion of what other people buy and sell.  As they grow, you grow.

advocare discount

Distributor: 20-40% off Depending on Volume

Advisor: 40% off and earn income 5 ways!


Is the Distributor Fee Worth it?

So for a $79 fee I think that is a great deal because it does give you the option to sell if you want to and get your own products at a discount.

There is an annual $50 fee to continue your membership and website BUT there are no monthly minimums or auto-ships.

This fee is kind of like what you get at Costco or Sams Club which get’s you discounted products for a membership fee.  This is a great way to get the AdvoCare Discount!

Click on the Become a Distributor button and fill in the information, pay and you are set.

become a distributor


You could then purchase the 24 Day Challenge for yourself or anyone and get that 20% off which adds up!

Depending on how much volume goes through your website will determine what discount level you are at.  Everyone starts at the 20% level and then can move to the 25% off, 30% off and then the 40% off or the Advisor level where you can earn income 5 ways.

The more product purchased through your site or from you, the higher the discount.

Pay periods in AdvoCare is every two weeks.  If your volume of sales goes up to $500-$1499 between 1 and 3 consecutive pay periods you move up to 25%.  Remember this is on the retail price not your already discounted cost. $1500-$2999-30% off and $3000 (retail price) or more takes you to the 40% off level where you are now what’s called an Advisor.
