Hello friends,
Let me start by introducing myself. My family and I currently call Sun Prairie home after having spent the majority of my life in the Kenosha area. My husband, Rob, and I have a house full of four children – Emily (12), Alli (10), Mary (8), Jack (8 months), and Cody, our Golden Retriever! We are a busy family and love the life that Sun Prairie provides us with. My husband and I both work at home; Rob as a regional salesman for Forest River, and myself as a Shaklee business owner. Working at home provides great satisfaction for me, both as a full-time mother of four AND a business owner. How do I do both? Well…
Over the past year or so, I have become increasingly concerned about our environment and even more specifically, the toxins commonly found in homes. My initial concerns arose from an unfortunate miscarriage in 2007. I quickly learned that numerous household cleaners are extremely harmful to healthy fetal development. I immediately started researching natural cleaners, which prompted me to start using vinegar and baking soda as my main household cleaners. Despite its versatility, I wasn’t completely satisfied so the research continued until I stumbled onto the Shaklee website. After reading a few testimonials from satisfied customers, I was sold! I needed new laundry detergent and an all-purpose cleaner to replace the toxic cleaners I was using, and I needed them fast. I went online, registered to become a Shaklee Distributor, and placed my first order for Get Clean Laundry HE Liquid and Basic H. I couldn’t wait to get my new products and start using them…I had some stains to get out! Imagine my surprise when my new all-natural detergent not only left my laundry cleaner and fresher, but it even took out the old stains left from before; talk about the product selling itself!
What made me choose Shaklee:
 They conduct over 83,000 test annually for product quality
 They make products from the purest natural ingredients completely eliminating pesticides, contaminants, and anything else unnatural that doesn’t belong
 They make sure every customer is satisfied 100% and stand behind each and every product
 Over 50 years of environmental leadership and scientific innovation – they were “GREEN” when “GREEN” didn’t even exist!
During my research, I also found testimonial after testimonial from people who were no longer suffering from allergies, stomach issues, menopause, eczema, immune deficiencies, asthma, and many other ailments. My youngest daughter Mary has long suffered from many allergies, asthma, and skin irritations so I figured what have I got to lose? After all, ridding our home of the harmful chemicals that were making her sicker is what a mother should do, right? I was, and still am, committed to improving my family’s health; Shaklee was the answer.
Since that time, I’ve continued my quest to rid my home of unnecessary toxins and ordered more Shaklee products, which each one of them delivery exactly what it promised. Then one day, my husband said to me, “Why don’t you sell Shaklee products? We’re using them all the time and they actually work.” I was shocked because Rob was very skeptical when I first started buying them. So here I am today, talking with all my friends and family and helping them make the simple switch over to Shaklee. As a result, they are improving the environment, improving the health of their families, and in many cases saving money. Yes, that’s correct; many of our products are less expensive per use than the brands you’re already buying!
I have several success stories that I would love to share with you, so please let me know how I can help you. It’s my hope and goal to help you improve the health and well-being of your family as much as Shaklee has helped me do the same.

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
