Product Q&A with David Lisonbee

How do you come up with new product ideas?
Ideas are most often born out of prevailing health needs in the marketplace. I also often get ideas from my ongoing research about transfer factors and other promising nutrients.

What is your favorite aspect of the new product creation process?
I love watching the entire research and development process unfold. It's satisfying to see a product progress from mere research and data into something that we can put into people's hands to help changes their lives.

What is the most challenging aspect of the product development process?
It can be very challenging to navigate the regulations for different countries. Thankfully, we have a great team led by Chief Operating Officer Danny Lee and Vice President of International Product Registration Catherine Larsen. They work tirelessly to ensure that we can get products approved in as many countries as possible.

How are new products named?
It sometimes resembles the process of naming a new baby. You might not know the perfect name until the "baby" has arrived! In all seriousness, naming 4Life® products is a collaborative process. We like to have a name that reflects a key ingredient or benefit of the product itself. Often, we solicit the help of different departments to ensure we come up with the best name possible—and hopefully one that will be easily understood in other languages.

For example, I love the story behind 4Life Transfer Factor® RioVida® Tri-Factor® Formula. RioVida was born out of my research in Brazil and the amazing properties of the açaí berry. The name "RioVida" means "river of life" in Portuguese and reflects the bounteous benefits of the berries in the formula.

I hope you feel great pride in the quality of products you share with people throughout the world. Every 4Life product goes through hundreds of hours of research and testing to ensure you get the best every time.

Back-to-School Time

In the United States and countries throughout the world, kids are heading back to school. Unfortunately, many children don't have backpacks or school supplies to successfully start a new school year. That's where Foundation 4Life® and 4Life® distributors come in! Our back-to-school program provides kids with the tools they need to start the school year off well and stay on a path to success.

Together, we've made a big difference this year for thousands of children throughout the United States:

Orlando, Florida—School supplies for 1,000 backpacks to the E.S.T.H.E.R. Single Mothers Outreach
Barberton, Ohio—200 backpacks to Barberton Elementary West
Downey California—150 backpacks, 250 hooded sweatshirts, and 100 back-to-school gift cards to the Downey Unified school district
Salt Lake City, Utah—350 organization binders to Guadalupe School
Miami Beach, Florida—300 uniforms to Fienberg-Fisher K-8 Center

All of this adds up to over $22,000 of back-to-school essentials! And our back-to-school efforts in other countries have just begun. This year, you can provide backpacks, school supplies, or both. Click here to help kids create better futures for themselves.

Service Director Tracie Kay said, "It's hard to believe that a simple backpack can be so beneficial, but it means so much to the kids and families we support. For a child, a backpack is a boost in self esteem and confidence. For her parents, it means they can buy more groceries or pay their utility bills for the month. School is expensive, and support from 4Life family members makes a major impact!"

We are constantly amazed by the giving hearts of 4Life family members. Your generous donations truly change lives. Thank you!

Spotlight on Gold International Diamonds Wendy & Samuel Young

Congratulations to new Gold International Diamonds Wendy and Samuel Young from California, USA! Wendy overcame her initial shyness to create a thriving 4Life® business. It's wonderful to see people conquer challenges to achieve their dreams.

Seven years ago, I was desperate to promote my health. Finding 4Life that year felt like a miracle. After 4Life products provided powerful health support for me, I realized I could achieve success with this company and help other people like me.*

Before 4Life, I worked as a real estate agent. The job was difficult and required that I travel and attend many meetings. Now, I run my 4Life business from the comfort of my own home. I am infinitely grateful for that. In the beginning, the biggest obstacle I had to overcome was approaching people about 4Life. I was a little shy and unsure of how to best introduce the product line.

I overcame my shyness through practice, practice, practice! I realized I had nothing to lose. I simply had to keep moving forward. Achieving success with 4Life is about never giving up and staying committed.

My motivation in building my 4Life business is to help others. There are so many people that need our help. These last few years with 4Life have opened my eyes to how much I can do for others. I've had countless people thank me for introducing them to 4Life. I no longer measure success in terms of money, but by my service to the community.

Spotlight on Gold International Diamond Yuet-Sheung Cheung

Congratulations to new Gold International Diamond Yuet-Sheung Cheung from California, USA! Mrs. Cheung has achieved great success by building her business in our Chinese markets. We're grateful for her hard work.

Before joining 4Life®, I worked at five different jobs to make ends meet. It was not easy. 4Life's outstanding products and profitable compensation plan caught my attention when I was in desperate need of health support. After an amazing experience with 4Life® Transfer Factor Plus® Tri-Factor® Formula and 4Life Transfer Factor® RioVida® Tri-Factor® Formula, I became a 4Life distributor. I feel like I joined 4Life at just the right time.

I love the I flexibility that building a 4Life business gives me. I'm free from the restricted schedule I used to have. And I've developed talents that I never imagined I could have. Before 4Life, I procrastinated things a lot. I put off tasks that I felt weren't pressing. Now, I do what needs to be done right away, and I don't procrastinate any more.

Achieving the Gold International Diamond rank feels like I have made the impossible possible. When you work hard, stay persistent, and never give up, you can achieve any goal that you desire. My next dream is to help my team members reach this rank and build my business in many countries.

I use an acronym for the word LEAD to build my business and train my team members: L(learn), E(elevate), A(achieve), and D(duplicate). These four core values can help anyone become a true leader. I believe each of us must earn our leadership, and not just say we're leaders. Learn from distributors in your upline and work hard with your team members!

Spotlight on New Gold International Diamonds Gustavo Adolfo Moreira & Flor De Liz Hidalgo

Congratulations to new Gold International Diamonds Gustavo Adolfo Moreira and Flor De Liz Hidalgo from Costa Rica, our first Gold International Diamonds in that country! Because of the success they have achieved, Gustavo and Flor De Liz are now full-time parents to their children. That's wonderful!

We decided to join 4Life® because we were struggling financially. We both had good jobs in the health field. However, we wanted to find an alternative that would allow us to be full-time parents. Our family is the most important thing in the world to us.

Because of 4Life, our biggest dream has become a reality. We can spend quality time with our children, family members, and loved ones. We quit our jobs, which not many people can afford to do. We make our own decisions, and we don't have a boss. We drive brand-new cars. We have traveled to 13 different countries. And we've made loving and supportive friends all over the world.

We've built our business based on solid relationships with our leaders and downline team members. Our great friend Platinum International Diamond Dr. Herminio Nevárez always guides us, and the International Networkers Team offers great support to us.

We share the 4Life message through our lifestyle. We tell people that life is short and they need to make their dreams come true. It's so motivating to watch other people change their lives with the support and knowledge we give them. We are excited to leave our legacy for the future.
