New Gold International Diamonds: Salim Raghavan and Noor Azlina

We are so pleased that Salim Raghavan and Noor Azlina of Singapore recently achieved the Gold International Diamond level. An engineer who resigned his job to build a 4Life business, Salim and his wife have great people skills that help them connect with people from all walks of life. We know that they care deeply about the members of their team and work to motivate them in building their own businesses.

My whole journey with 4Life began with a simple brochure that was given to me. I thought to myself, "How much can this little brochure do?" After looking through the brochure and talking to Platinum International Diamond Sadik Din, I was impressed with the potential that 4Life Transfer Factor® products could have to fulfill my dream of helping people to achieve health and wealth. At that point in time, I learned that one of my friends needed health support. So, I introduced 4Life Transfer Factor to him. The wonderful results he experienced gave me double confidence in this business.

Different people have different ways of approaching people about 4Life. For me, I always talk about network marketing, 4Life, and today's economy. From there, people are able to see and compare their current life with their dream life. I truly believe that 4Life is the best way to achieve financial freedom and good health. However, there are no shortcuts in this business. You have to be patient, hardworking, and willing to follow the system of successful people.

Life wasn't easy before we started with 4Life. In just five years, I have been able to build a new beautiful home, purchase my dream car, and take my wife on vacations. Knowing that we have become Gold International Diamonds is like a dream come true. No words can fully describe the feeling. The sacrifices and hard work have proved worth it. This is not the stopping point, but a new motivation to push harder to the next level of Platinum International Diamond. To all my business partners who helped make this possible—let's work hard for a better tomorrow!

In Memoriam: International Diamond Carmou Molarski

Carmou Molarski

We were saddened to hear about the recent passing of 4Life International Diamond Carmou Molarski of Texas. Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and 4Life group at this time.

Carmou Molarski was born on July 17, 1951, in Durango, Mexico. When she was a teenager, Carmou's parents moved their family to Texas to give their children the opportunity to learn English. Carmou met and married the love of her life, Luther Molarski, in El Paso. They farmed together, owned and operated an archery store, and eventually started a plumbing business. Carmou's friends said when she needed plumbing done at her home, she often did it herself! Carmou also graduated from beauty college and eventually opened her own shop near her home. Carmou was a worker!

Carmou joined 4Life as a distributor nearly ten years ago. As in everything she ever decided to do, Carmou worked hard, built her business faithfully, and eventually achieved the International Diamond rank. She was deeply loved and respected by all who knew her.

We loved reading these touching words about Carmou from her fellow 4Life distributors. 4Life distributor Jacque Cook from Texas said, "Carmou was the most beautiful, caring, and loving best friend. I loved her dearly. She was always thinking of everyone she cared about and was always there if you needed her. We have had a great ride together. We worked together, played together, and traveled together, even going to several 4Life conventions. We have always been there for each other through thick and thin, good times and bad times. I'm going to miss her terribly. She was the closest friend I ever had."

International Diamond Bonnie Hornsby from South Carolina expressed similar sentiments about her good friend Carmou. She said, "When I look back on the years I knew her, I think of what a beautiful lady she was both inside and out. She fought for what she believed in and would not give up. I admired her so very much. She was my business partner and my confidant, but mostly my friend. Her life was not easy but she always had a smile on her face when I was with her. I know she's in a better place now and so happy to be with Luther again. My life has been blessed to have had Carmou in it. I can't believe she is gone."

Our very own Vice President of Field Development Mark Petersen also had some wonderful things to say about Carmou. "Carmou was amazing to watch and be around. She had amazing strength cloaked in never-ending kindness. For years she has set the standard of bridging the gap between English and Spanish-speaking distributors in West Texas and Northeast Mexico. We will all miss her!"

New Gold International Diamonds: Rasid Kamisan and Hasrunita

We are so excited to welcome Rasid Kamisan and Hasrunita of Malaysia to our Gold International Diamond group. Rasid and Hasrunita are great leaders who care deeply for their downline distributors. This couple travels extensively to assist their leaders, and they are well-respected by all who know them. Rasid and Hasrunita have a vision for their group and they work with each leader to achieve it.

I strongly believe in the power that network marketing has to help people create success for themselves. I feel there is no other platform out there that can provide such an extraordinary opportunity for people to live better lives. Before 4Life, I knew that network marketing was the answer for me and my family, but I hadn't found the right company yet.

Then, my wife and I were introduced to 4Life through my brother, Mr. Arshad Kamisan. 4Life is the right company to help you achieve all the happiness and freedom that you ever wanted. This company can help you realize ultimate health, time freedom, and financial freedom, and have the chance to contribute to charity. I love making a difference in people's lives through 4Life and 4Life Transfer Factor®.

I feel proud that my success has helped contribute to Sadik Din becoming the first Platinum International Diamond in Southeast Asia. I'm grateful to help make history for our region and I know this will motivate my business partners to have increased confidence and faith in 4Life.

The bonus payments and rewards that I receive from 4Life have enabled me to settle all my personal loans and credit card debt. Now, I can save for both my future and my family. I have achieved financial and time freedom. Soon, I will own my dream house and my dream car. After only five years with 4Life, my life and my business partners' lives have changed.

With the amazing support of 4Life Transfer Factor and unbelievable LP payouts, individuals have all the opportunities they need to change their lives. You will be the one to determine your success or failure.

Platinum International Diamond Dream Stories: Juan Rosado and Damaris Zapata

Two of 4Life's bright and shining stars are Juan Rosado and his wonderful wife, Damaris. Not only are Juan and Damaris inspiring examples of how to achieve success as distributors, but they are also examples of successful human beings. They have led the way in their commitment to service and they have inspired others to do the same. Their dedication to their three beautiful daughters and the 4Life family is exemplary.

Before I was introduced to 4Life, I worked 12 hour days every weekday and an additional eight hours every Sunday as a security guard. I was struggling to make even simple financial and lifestyle goals a reality. Because I had only received a ninth grade education, I felt like I would always be stuck in this situation.

We learned about 4Life from Platinum International Diamond Dr. Herminio Nevárez, a long-time friend. Herminio asked me if I wanted to make my dreams come true. Of course I did, but I hadn't found a way to make it happen. I didn't understand the 4Life opportunity very well, but I was hopeful that I could begin to generate income that would bring me the financial freedom necessary to establish a new way of life.

Under Herminio's direction, I started building my 4Life business part-time, while continuing to work as a security guard. Night after night, I would share the plan, show the plan, and present the plan. I would talk to people who were looking for a new opportunity and if they had a desire to move forward, they would join me. One of my early goals was to have enough money to retire from my job as a security guard. I met this goal less than two years later.

We know that this world offers many things, but so many of those things seem to give us less time with the people we care about. If you want to have more time to spend with your family and enjoy life, 4Life is the perfect opportunity. I have even written a book about my personal story. The book is entitled El Guardia que Compro sus Sueños (The Security Guard Who Purchased His Dreams) and has sold over 75,000 copies.

I have learned many things over the years, but today I know that a good decision made at the right moment can change your life. 4Life has given me everything. I want nothing less than to continue making this opportunity available to the rest of the world. The chance to share this opportunity with other people and witness their own life-changing stories has been greatly satisfying.

We now have three beautiful daughters, Marianny, Aracelis, and Brianny, and live near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Even though we have traveled the world together, there is no experience that is more marvelous than being home together, going to the beach together, or riding bikes together.

Your Personal Pursuit of Happiness

Many of you have probably seen the acclaimed film, The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith. Had we not known it was based on a true story, we would have had a hard time believing that someone could overcome such challenges. And not only was he able to overcome great challenges, but he triumphed over them.

Of course you know that the person who lived this real-life story is Christopher Gardner. We have the singular opportunity to hear Christopher Gardner share his story with us at BIG Convention 2010 this September. We believe that hearing Christopher's story will be life-changing for everyone in attendance.

Christopher Gardner succeeded against great odds. As you watch the movie, you can't help but ache for the trials he faced. However, because of those trials, he is truly qualified to give us a message of substance and depth on how each of us can overcome obstacles in our personal pursuits of happiness.

Can you imagine the positive energy and power of a convention that features someone like Christopher Gardner, not to mention the many 4Life distributors and leaders who daily inspire others to achieve their pursuits of happiness? It will truly be memorable. We look forward to learning from Christopher Gardner and learning from you.

One important thing that we all can learn from Christopher is to make the most of opportunities when they present themselves. We hope you take advantage of the great opportunity in front of you—BIG Convention 2010. We truly believe that attending convention will provide all of us with a phenomenal chance to pursue our own paths to happiness.
