Sunshine Family News – August 2007 – The Herbs Place

Sunshine Family Monthly News
August 4, 2007 Edition

A Note From Randal and Donna

We’re looking forward to a trip to Chattanooga at the end of the month.  We’re excited because we’re going to get to see six special people.  Our sponsors, Louise and Charlie Allred and our managers, Robin (and Steve) Snelgrove, and John and Roxanne Howlett.  Any time we can get together with the Sunshine Family is a grand time indeed.

We had some cooler weather here in July and one of the weekends we spent over in the Blue Ridge area visiting an orchard for peaches, some waterfalls, beautiful views, an old grist mill, Buffalo Springs Herb Farm, and Trillium Trail with another waterfall.  View photo album.

Summer is winding down and school starts here in Central Virginia next week.  School and pre-school time is time to focus on children’s products.  Parents want to keep their children from getting sick and they can do it with herbs.  Refresh your mind on the Herbasaur products and be prepared. With some herbal support kids can stay well.

Don’t forget to get parents on an immune-enhancing formula also since carpools and contact with their own children bringing home organisms doesn’t leave them in the clear either.  My favorite formula for daily use is Defense Maintenance and when you get some symptoms that the body is being challenged, Elderberry Defense.  Watching for symptoms of being more tired than usual, a sore throat, runny nose, etc. should get you started early to throw in some extra ammunition against the invaders.

Do You Work From Home?  Need More Hours?

We’ve been blessed with Christina Tarman who has worked with us for years placing orders, answering emails and phones, and keeping things all in order when we travel.  Christina is getting married and her schedule may change since she’s considering a full-time job.  She’ll also have the honeymoon and will be attending the Convention Cruise with us in October, so we need to find somebody who could stand in the gap or take her place if she leaves for a full-time position.

You would need a computer with internal fax (no paper use) and a phone we can forward to.  Skills require a familiarity with NSP products and the Master Price List (we do not answer health questions or recommend products), good typing and spelling abilities, pleasant phone voice and ability to be concise with a conversation.  HTML knowledge would present further opportunity for more hours periodically.  A professional setting is necessary, meaning an atmosphere that sounds like a business (not a pre-school 🙂 on the telephone.

What Christina does averages 2-2.5 hours a day which is split between morning and evening.  Phone work can be done throughout the day when you are home, but it is not expected that you be home all day for phone calls.

If this sounds interesting, email us back with any questions and your preferred phone number.  Randal will schedule a time to call you to discuss it.  Please include some information on why you are interested, your skills, etc.

New Products Not Yet Ready   

Last report I received from NSP a couple days ago was that the three new products are expected to be available for ordering by September 1st.  These are all detailed in this month’s issue of Manager Extra.

We can’t wait for the Super Trio!  It’s a GREAT program! 

90-Day Challenge Being Discontinued

NSP product developers have worked hard to prepare for the mid-August introduction of Super-Trio.  This package product is based on two of NSP’s best products:  Super Supplemental and Super Omega 3.  It also features a brand new and exclusive herbal combination called Super ORAC.  All three products will be packaged in 30 AM and PM packets for ease of use. 

Super-Trio will replace the current 90-Day Challenge product packs.  On September 1st, Super-Trio will become the focus of NSP’s core nutrition efforts, being called the "Super-Trio Habit-of-Health" program.  Sign-up for the current 90-Day Challenge will be discontinued.  Individuals who are already in this program will be able to continue receiving their product packages through November.  If somebody is particularly wants to begin the 90-Day Challenge, they have until August 31 to sign up before the program is discontinued.

New Super-Trio Habit-of-Health Program

On September 1, sign-ups begin for this new program.  There are special bonuses available for Legacy sponsors and Classic sponsors and sign-ups will be compensated according to the current Classic plan.  Get more details on that at the NSP website or from Customer Service.  This program will include three products:  Super Supplemental, Super Omega 3, plus a brand new and exclusive herbal combination called Super ORAC.  All three products will be packaged in 30 AM and PM packets for ease of use.
