I worked 47 1/2 years for the same company – prior to that – I started working when I was going into my Junior year of H.S.
I decided when I retired – almost 50 years of working – was enough !
It was important to maintain our friendships – stay in touch – here are four of our closest friends.
It was important for me to stay active and play golf.
Family is very important to me , when we moved to NVA – Sherry’s daughters followed us there . My two sons stayed in NWPA – we see them when we visit. In the 20 years – the Va.family has grown – and being there – we see them often if not daily. My family I grew up with is almost gone – I have a niece – great niece’s – brother’s daughter – great – great niece and 2 great – great nephews – everyone else including uncles -aunts are gone.
We live in a very expensive part of the country – in fact – this county has the highest income per household in the country. We moved here 20 years ago for work and then Sherry retired almost 7 years ago – and went full time into that business of health and nutrition. I followed one year later – and – it has been the income that has provided us the time to stay where we are.
We travel – we play golf – we see the country – but we also maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating right – and continue to inspire people to do the same – all the while being paid to do it !
You have to remember – retirement means Social Security – if you have a pension plan – 401 K – and whatever else you have saved. PLAN ” B ” – if you want to maintain – you have to have a plan. Ours – we planned 13 years ago and have stayed the course.
Family life – friends – and maintaining health are important for us. All three – with church and God – are our mainstays of life. Giving – helping – praying and attending church – go hand in hand with our life. But – having fun – seeing friends – and watching the family grow – is to me what retirement is all about.
My wife is extraordinary – a natural born leader – a certified health coach – along as being a true friend to many. She is my crutch – the one I follow on health and nutrition and the reason I am still alive today.
Eating healthy – sticking to the plan – and taking my nutrition supplement – and following what she says and does are my secrets to life.
We grow our own produce – April through October outside with two Tower Gardens – anything that does not grow on a tree! And then as you see above – we grow inside our garage November through March. Always fresh and no pesticides – we know what we are eating and growing.
Our team has grown over the years – conference time is twice a year – all over the Country – as is the team – simply sharing by word of mouth. Families – children – helping each other – maintain that healthy life style.
In October we will travel to Austin Texas – where we are planning to watch our daughter Debby be promoted to National Marketing Director for the Juice Plus Company – when she will make a full time income she could not of made in the Corporate World ! With extremely generous benefits – and help for college tuition for all three of her children.
Our goal of maintaining our lifestyle in retirement with a PLAN ” B” has been met and continues – growing year by year.
We would love to share it with you – it is not easy – life isn’t easy either – but you make it what you want it to be.
It is up to you – we supply the help – the guidance – we are there.
Our busy lives – our family – both our close family and what we consider our family of Juice Plus.
The journey began 13 years ago – and for us it was simply changing our life style – getting healthy – knowing that after we retired – we wanted to remain in life active as we had been in our early years.
In the above picture – we had been married 7 years – and are to the far left at age 40 ! I had always played sports – softball until I was 38 years old – basketball for a radio station – and at age 46 after volleyball – golf.
Today – we golf as much as we can – but are busy with our lives – our grand kids and our in home business of The Juice Plus Company. We started this business as a way to pay for our product – and after one year – knew that we had to get our family and grand kids on it for health reasons. And then it started to grow – and grow . All from home while working full time in our Career business of TILE !! Yes – we worked a combined 79 1/2 years for the same company !
Working for Corp. America is a dream when you are young – but can and did become a very stressful – unbearable lifestyle that we both wanted out of ! That is when we really took a look at the business side of Juice Plus. We were already distributors ( cost $50.00 a year ) – and were sharing it as the belief grew stronger and stronger with changes in our combined health. It became time to move forward – so a team developed – and it got bigger and bigger – just sharing – today we have two QMND’s and one Senior under Sherry – with one QMND walking the stage in October.
Debby is almost there as a new NMD – (National Marketing Director) and we will most likely watch her WALK THE STAGE in Austin Texas – where she will give a speech before 8000 people – and recognized by the Juice Plus Company. Something that has changed her and her families lives ! Her daughter will receive up to$1750.00 per year for college! As one of her perks for being a NMD !
We have made a dramatic change in a lot of lives – both in health and wealth. We retired – Sherry at age 63 – me at 64 – leaving behind successful careers – going full time in the Juice Plus business – traveling the Country – promoting health and showing how people can take control and work for themselves – living life to the plus one day at a time.
This August – we will tour Northern California – then in October – Austin Texas – then late January – all of February and early March – Florida – getting out of the cold ! All the while working from home on the computer and phone no matter where home is !
Our life has changed – to the good – no STRESS – maintaining a healthy lifestyle – playing golf – seeing our grand kids grow up-watching them go off to college – and most important – watching our two daughters pursue their own dreams of independence and life styles in health and nutrition.
Our road to success is a road map and we have a team following it – there is no ” I ” in TEAM – but there is a lifestyle out there – one that WE choose – and is one YOU can duplicate – TIME -LOVE – HEALTH – you just have to want it !

” PAPA’S WORLD – OUR WORLD OF HEALTH – JUICE PLUS “
Many times when you attempt a HOME BUSINESS , the biggest obstacle can sometimes be ones self! You just have to get out of your own way ! Ask yourself not WHY ? But HOW you can accomplish what needs to be done.
During my years I have learned that success for me has come in the form of three principles that I follow.
BELIEF : Believe in what you are doing – follow your heart – ones belief is a potent force when you apply it to your convictions. Stay the course – remember – in order to succeed – take care of all the small things and the larger problem will most likely take care of itself.
FAITH : Listen – observe – and then have the FAITH to act. Plan – ask questions – and then formulate a plan of action – list your goals and have the FAITH to act on them. If you have FAITH in yourself and those around you – you are on your way !
POSITIVITY : I was asked once to give my impression on the HALF FULL vs. HALF EMPTY GLASS . To me , it is neither HALF FULL or HALF EMPTY ! There are two ingredients that are involved here. AIR & LIQUID. Without one or the other , you can not survive as far as I know! The Glass has both – both essential to you and your team ! Positivity is something I wake up with every day. I always look at whatever is positive in the situation and act on it !
In a home based business – and with a TEAM – what comes out of you goes into them ! LEAD FOR SUCCSS !
I hope this little bit goes a long way in helping you overcome the fear of leadership – look at your team and then look in the mirror. Your team will be reflected back to you !
