The Path to Success…

Nikken is about more than innovative products – it also has a great Income Opportunity1. Income can be earned in a number of ways; selling to customers, getting new business partners on board who develop their own Nikken business, and using the Nikken Incentive programmes to maximise income potential. 

We’d like to congratulate Chantal Martin, one of our Independent Nikken Consultants in France.  She has built her Nikken business over the past few months, achieving Silver rank in August and Gold in September AND won the High 5 Incentive. We asked Chantal what her favourite products are and how she built her business and achieved her rank advancements. This is her story: 

“Hello, I am Chantal Martin, 68, a retired shopkeeper from Vichy, France. I became an Independent Nikken Consultant in January 2018, after a very positive experience while testing the Nikken Sleep System.

I was very pleased with how I felt after using the Sleep System and wanted to purchase one for myself, as well as try more Nikken products, so I purchased the complete Sleep System and PiMag Water Fountain. I also use the Jade GreenZymes®, KENZEN Super Ciaga®, KVB® Natural Food Mix and the TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare. I use these products every day – they are now my essentials! 

I became very aware that I was actually responsible for my own health by choice – and not by chance. I attended workshops and discovered how I could share ways of living an active wellness lifestyle with others too.  

I introduced Nikken to people who wanted an additional income, with minimal investment, and who wanted to be part of a Team. Our Team currently consists of: two Consultants – who reached Executive rank in two months and won the Power Start Incentive. Their small initial investment has now been returned to them in products. And a Consultant – who has reached Silver rank in just two months and already, has his own team of 3 people. 

We are aiming to achieve the PARAGON prize by the end of December. We’ve achieved what we have so far with help and support from Marie and Jean Marie and their participation in our three business presentations.

I am now Gold rank. One of my beliefs is in helping others. Nothing we do is ever a waste of our time, we cannot help everyone, but we will be able to help someone. Nobody has ever become poor by giving. With hard work, perseverance and courage, we can get there. The only way to fail is to give up before reaching the goal. Be grateful for each difficulty you encounter – it could be the gift which will help you grow. The difference between a successful person and others is not lack of strength, nor lack of knowledge – but rather a lack of willpower.

Thank you and GO! GO!”

Sharing the method for success…

Leo Blog Final

Paragons Retail, Sponsor and Duplicate

A “Paragon” is defined as a model of excellence or perfection. The most successful Nikken Consultants live up to being paragons. To help Nikken Consultants advance and increase earnings, the Paragon Award was developed to motivate and reward Consultants who sponsor new people and retail products, the two tried and true ways to advance in ranking and earn more income. Historically, the more effort Consultants exert, the faster they earn and the higher they progress in rank.

The Paragon Award is designed to help Nikken Consultants, at the Silver and lower ranks, advance to Gold. However, a Consultant at any level can achieve the Paragon Award by meeting the qualifications. To qualify, a Consultant needs to develop three or more new frontline Silver (or above) Consultants within a period of three consecutive months. In addition, awardees need to achieve a minimum of 18,000 Personal Group Point Volume. The prize is £600 in cash.

Platinum Consultant Leo LeMay, of the province of Quebec in Canada, achieved the Paragon Award earlier this year – and has plans to go for it yet again!

For anyone taking on this challenge, Leo gives some personal advice on how to succeed. He says, “I decided not just to try for the Paragon Award but to truly commit to attaining it. I believe in focusing on the decision to succeed and backing it up by taking consistent action every single day.

Taking action means contacting new prospects, doing the ABC presentations* and coaching people by phone when possible. I committed to making five to seven new contacts each week as well as doing at least one and sometimes two or three presentations each week. These presentations were either an ABC* or a personal one-on-one meeting. By consistently doing these things, I was able to increase volume to meet the qualifications. I also did a lot of coaching by phone.

To achieve the sponsorship requirements, I asked each of my first-level Consultants, who were not yet at the rank of Silver, whether they were ready to go for Silver. Réal Houle was the one who was committed, and I continued sponsoring to find two more. Whenever I sponsor new Consultants, I ask them if they are willing to commit to working towards Silver in three months or less. I also ask if they’ll commit to going for the Entrepreneurs Club at the same time. I’m happy to say that after all our hard work, my new frontline people are now independent and know how to retail and sponsor their own new Consultants.”

Congratulations to Leo LeMay for sharing Active Wellness and being a Nikken Paragon!

Make the Decision to Succeed…

MD-KF blog banner logo

Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “continuous improvement through positive change”. Recipients of the Team Kaizen award have the opportunity to experience an extraordinary leadership position within Nikken.

2018 Team Kaizen members had to create at least one Quality Enrollment every month of 2017 and develop four or more new frontline Silver Consultants throughout the year. Even though he has qualified for Team Kaizen 2018, Royal Diamond Michael (Mike) DiMuccio continues to lead and sponsor new Consultants as he approaches 27 years with Nikken. Why? He has set himself a goal to be a part of Team Kaizen 2019.

Explaining why he was so intent on qualifying for Team Kaizen, Mike says:

“I wanted to prove to the Nikken Family, especially those following me, that even though I am at the Royal Diamond rank, often associated with ‘resting on our laurels’, that it could be done. The point was for me to remove all excuses and legitimate reasons for not getting it done. It was the consequence of making a decision. Enlist the support and direct involvement of your active upline and create a daily to-do list and calendar of events. Tell people why you are doing what you are doing with Nikken and invite them to help you do it – directly, or indirectly. Create new Silvers. No one becomes Silver just because. This achievement requires a focused effort on the part of the Consultant and their sponsor.

I have asked newly sponsored Consultants to join me in the effort to achieve a Paragon Award and Team Kaizen. The majority of volume that we have generated was from retail sales, which is a big plus in the new compensation plan. Of course, building a team is of a higher priority, but doesn’t hold back the potential for a Consultant to achieve the Silver rank mainly on his or her own steam. Contact with my running friends, ABC meetings and calls were top on the list for daily activities. Asking for ‘help’ and referrals became the means to connect to more people.

Everyone loves a deal, so extending product incentives to my Consultant’s prospects became a way to encourage immediate action, like offering a Naturest® Pillow for a Sleep System or a PiMag® Water Bottle for a PiMag® Waterfall. And now, with our new Wellness Home Packs, we have a built-in incentive!”

On his way to becoming a 2019 Team Kaizen member, Mike says: “Setting a goal and achieving it is one of the most empowering feelings in the world. I’m staying on top of my 3000 PGV monthly, mainly with the same strategy as before. I personally am also taking advantage of the new Wellness Packs to have products to loan to prospects and to promote the built-in incentives.”

In summary, here are the five main actions required with the “DiMuccio strategy” in order to join Team Kaizen:

  1. Make the decision to succeed.
  2. Ask your active upline for help and support.
  3. Create a daily to-do list and a calendar of events.
  4. Sponsor new Consultants and create new Silvers to build a team.
  5. Generate retail sales to increase volume. Maintain 3000 PGV monthly.

Next month, Mike is hosting the upcoming Humans Being More Summit together with a fellow Royal Diamond Bo Tanas in Toronto.

BUILD YOUR TEAM and be rewarded with Nikken Reward Points…

Blog hands banner

Achieve Nikken Reward Points and cash in on the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” incentive for the month of September. If you’re a Nikken Consultant, you know that earning a Nikken income requires an Active Wellness lifestyle, sponsoring new people with the Nikken opportunity and producing personal and group sales volume. In September, the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” incentive rewards sponsorship that produces Personal Point Volume (PPV), as well as Personal Group Volume (rank dependent).

Active Nikken Consultants who produce a minimum of 100 PPV in September are eligible for the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” incentive.

There are two categories to qualify for this incentive:

Top Recruiters

This category recognises the Top 3 Consultants who sponsor the most new Consultants with 500 PPV during the calendar month. Consultants are ranked from 1 – 3 based on the number of new Consultants recruited. A minimum of 3 new Consultants, each with at least 500 PPV, must be achieved to count for qualification of the prize. Ties are decided by the higher PPV.

Top Group Volume (PGPV)

This category recognises the Top 3 Consultants on Direct, Executive and Silver ranks who produce the highest PGPV, within their personal group, throughout the month. Consultants are ranked from 1 – 3 based on the volume produced throughout the month. A minimum of 3,000 PGPV must be produced to be considered part of the Top 3. Ties are decided by the higher PGPV.

So, how can Nikken Reward Points benefit you?

  • Think of them as cash. When you purchase products with them and re-sell those products, you earn 100% profit. (Usually you earn 20% when you retail product.)
  • Would you like to try new products? Use your Nikken Reward Points and you won’t have depleted any extra money from your monthly budget.
  • Do you wish to recognize your team members for their efforts with a gift of product? Nikken Reward Points come in handy to make that purchase.
  • Do you want to create your own group contests? Use the products purchased using the Nikken Reward Points as prizes for the contest winners.

In a nutshell, NRPs help Nikken Consultants build and replenish their business.

Nikken Consultants can see the complete details of the “DECIDE it. DO it. GET it.” on their Virtual Office.

The Nikken Reward Points can be used by placing the order with our Customer Services Team.

Commit to Your Goal…

SherriAloneTalking

Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “continuous improvement through positive change.” Recipients of the Team Kaizen award exemplify the meaning of the word and have the opportunity to experience an extraordinary leadership position within Nikken.

In their pursuit of Active Wellness, 2018 Team Kaizen members had to create at least one Quality Enrollment every month of 2017 and develop four or more new frontline Silvers last year. One person who achieved this milestone was Sherri Danzig. As a Team Kaizen member, earlier this year she was treated to a trip of a lifetime to Japan. Here’s what she says about her plans to achieve Team Kaizen again in 2019:

“To qualify for Team Kaizen, you have to do one thing. You have to make a committed decision to accomplish the goal, no matter what conspires to get in your way. Beyond that, it’s helpful to have a mentor, an accountability partner, a mastermind team or even all three – to help you develop a plan, to work your plan and to revise your plan as you go along your journey. Beyond doing the work, you must nurture your belief and vision by staying plugged into company and field events. Most importantly, you must believe in the big version of yourself, what I call the Big Stick Figure (BSF), the version of yourself that believes everything you know is possible!

I am currently working with three partners who each wish to qualify for Team Kaizen. Two of them are at the rank of Silver, working towards Platinum and one is brand new. I also plan to support six new Consultants to break Silver this year. Together we’ll expand our online marketing success. I read affirmations multiple times daily and am making plans with family to meet me in Italy at the conclusion of our Team Kaizen trip to continue traveling!

I am honored to represent Nikken as a member of Team Kaizen. I’m honestly proud of myself for keeping to my commitment and working through some tough self-imposed barriers. I feel empowered to keep growing as a business leader and to stay on a personal development path that is unending. My desire is to step up and stop hiding, to be recognized and embrace being a leader. With that, I will strive to have a bigger voice to make a bigger impact!”

Here is Sherri’s three-step plan for herself and anyone else who wishes to be part of Team Kaizen:

  1. “Step up your recruiting activities. Set specific weekly goals for number of new contacts and 1-on-1 appointments.
  2. Begin tracking your progress on a large chart. Start with the finish and work backwards.
  3. Visualize your success. Write and say out loud the goal of being on Team Kaizen every day. Set a calendar event on repeat to remind yourself to smile and visualize your goal multiple times every day!”

Japanese Takeaways…

Japanese Takeaways Blog Banner

Recently the 2017 Nikken Team Kaizen members were rewarded for qualifying as Active Wellness entrepreneurs with a luxury trip to Japan. Here is what Jon and Nicki Edgell, Platinum Consultants from the UK, wrote about their memorable experience.

“In addition to the regular compensation plan Nikken offers extra incentives to Consultants. One of these has just seen us take part in an all expenses paid Team Kaizen trip to Japan, the original home of Nikken.

Although Nikken Inc. now has its HQ in the US the company aims to visit Japan every few years in order to honor its formation and to give Consultants a chance to experience Japanese culture and the people’s philosophy of service. This was certainly the case where we were constantly humbled by the people’s helpfulness and politeness everywhere we went. At each hotel on the tour lines of staff would stand and bow. If we stopped for a moment and looked confusingly at a metro map a young student with perfect English would offer help. Tokyo is preparing for the Olympics in 2020 and the people’s friendliness and the efficiency of their transport systems will ensure a successful event.

This trip, as well as various other annual events, is also a chance to reconnect with old colleagues and meet new friends, to revive one’s purpose, to get inspired and set intentions for the year ahead. To be surrounded by so many positive and successful partners serves to propel you on to the next level of your Nikken journey. Big decisions are made at these big events.

The trip was primarily a holiday and a reward for good work but there are inevitably chances to talk business and share best practices. By forging lasting relationships with international colleagues chances for collaboration and sharing business arise.

The network marketing model is one of collaborative entrepreneurship. Although we all have our own teams, by sharing information about what works well the global Nikken family is able to “grow the overall size of the pie”. In practice this translates, for example, to a colleague in Canada passing an enquiry from a UK resident to us or a Mexican business leader appearing on one of our webinars to pass on knowledge and inspiration to our team.

Another takeaway from the trip was the number of different ways one can be successful at the Nikken business – for instance through online retail or through building a network, or a combination of both. The Nikken business leaders are drawn from all sorts of different characters – it is certainly not the case that you have to be an outgoing extrovert in the stereotypical salesman mold.

Thank you Nikken for the trip of a lifetime!”

A Crazy Statistic You Wont Believe. But it’s True!

How often have you heard the statement – “there has never been a better time to join this business!” Whilst it is often said with sincerity, it can also feel a little cliched sometimes – almost sales pitchy. Europeans tend to turn off to obvious sales pitches. However, I have learned this week that there is a depth and scientific truth to that statement that I hadn’t considered before. When you hear what I am about to say, I am sure you will come away thinking that you need to change your priorities in a BIG way.

For context, please allow me to wax a little scientific 🙂 According to Professor Brian Cox our universe will eventually die. The arrow of time, the sequence of changes that slowly leads the universe to its death is the exact thing that create the conditions for life. How? Because it takes time for matter to form and time for gravity to pull it together into stars and planets and thus create life in the first place. This arrow of time creates a window – a very small window when life becomes possible. Here is the amazing statistic – As a fraction, the amount of time where life can exist in our universe from its beginning to its eventual end is one thousandth of a billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billion, billionth of a percentage. Yes – I said billion NINE times! That number is rediculously small and yet – THAT TIME IS NOW! Of all the things that are incredible that are around us, the one thing that should inspire us the most is this very moment in time in which we now live!

In all of time and space, we have but an infinitely small fraction of time here upon this earth to use as we will. This time and this life is nothing short of miraculous. What are you doing with your time? How are you spending your life? Now is not the time to feel discouraged. Now is the time to feel amazed. NOW really is the best time to get going and put our shoulder to the wheel of good fortune and personal ambition. Time is literally too short.

Do you want to hear another interesting statistic? In the news yesterday, it was reported that an average of 20 stores per day are closing in the United Kingdom. 20 stores per day! What are they being replaced with? Payday loan shops and betting establishments. What does that tell us? It says that the conventional way of shopping is changing. It also says that people are in need of more money and they are looking in the wrong places.

We have the solution! Exclusive, needed products with a unique distribution channel that doesn’t lay people off or close shop. Income opportunities to match anyones need or ambition with minimal risk. Equal pay regardless of gender, background or belief. The chance for advancement without compromise. Yes, we have what people need.

With this new found appreciation of the value of NOW coupled with the reality of the desperate need people feel all around us – we have an opportunity to make a difference like never before. YES, the time is NOW. We have but a small moment in time to experience this life and an opportunity in front of us that will help us make the very best of it.
