Distributor Dream Board - Scott Schwerdt's TSF Success Story
Have you started using The Success Formula to help you build your business? Scott Schwerdt, President of North America shares a story:
Scott has been with Nu Skin since 1988, and he has worked with many distributors who have worked hard to reach their goals as Nu Skin leaders. But one individual who really stands out, in his opinion, is a woman who was a single mother and cleaning houses in Colorado when she decided to join Nu Skin.
This Nu Skin distributor saw the potential Nu Skin offered when she learned about the business from one of her clients in Colorado. Her dream was to live in San Diego, so she promptly joined Nu Skin and moved there to build her business.
One of the first things she did was create a dream board. On this board was everything she planned to achieve as a Nu Skin distributor—and she let nothing keep her from reaching these goals. “She has a beautiful home in Pacific Beach ove
rlooking the bay,” says Scott. “I remember going to her home in the early ‘90s, just after she’d bought this home. There, on her wall, was her dream board that she had put together within the first couple of days of the business. I was impressed by how many of those goals on her dream board had become a reality, all because she had worked very hard and never lost sight of what she intended to achieve.”
To Scott, this woman’s spirit to succeed proved to him how important it is to dream big and never let anything stop you. This dynamic Nu Skin leader has had her share of trials and tribulations over the years, but Scott has always been impressed by how she has maintained a dogged determination to be successful. In fact, Scott says her Nu Skin business defines who she is, since her circle of friends consists of other Nu Skin distributors. To her, the pin title is not what’s important—it’s the value of the business. Because of this, he knows she will never tire of her Nu Skin business.
“Successful distributors have a vision of what life will be like when they achieve their dreams. The key is to have that vision—not only to have it in your mind, but to write it down. You need to write who you will be, what life will be like, and what you will do when you have achieved success. That’s what the dream really is.”
