This past week we had the privilege of being with some of our Gold and Platinum International Diamonds on the Gold Getaway and Platinum Pinnacle trips. It was truly rewarding to celebrate the wonderful leaders of our company who help make dreams come true for so many others.
We met with the Gold International Diamonds in San Francisco, California. One of our fondest memories from this trip will be of cruising underneath the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. We then got to join our Platinum International Diamonds in Kona, Hawaii at the Four Seasons Resort. It was a time of relaxation and rejuvenation, plus a little adventure in the forms of helicopter rides and hiking.
Of course, all these activities would be enjoyable in and of themselves, but to experience such wonderful places with inspiring members of the 4Life family made the trip much more than just a nice vacation. We also had the unique opportunity to congratulate our newest Platinum International Diamonds, Sadik Din and his wife Hasnimah. They went to the Gold Getaway and also joined us on the Platinum Pinnacle trip.
Sadik made a comment that really impressed us. He said that the greatest power God has given us is the ability to make choices. In the days since our trip, we have thought a lot about this. The mission of 4Life is all about giving people the opportunity to make the choice to improve their lives through science, success, and service. It was great to spend a few days with the wonderful leaders of 4Life who have chosen to take advantage of this great opportunity. We can hardly wait to be with those distributors who will join us next time. Choose now to be one of those people. We know you can do it!

Bonnie is the kind of person everyone would love to have as a friend or neighbor. Her leadership style embodies the Together, Building People philosophy. She loves people and loves seeing them succeed. Her enthusiasm and passion for 4Life, as well as her beautiful smile, are contagious.
Before working with 4Life, I achieved top positions in network marketing companies and traditional corporations. I was eventually forced to take time off from work as my parents became extremely ill and needed my assistance. I used my retirement and savings to bring in specialized doctors for my mother. I lost everything—my home, my car, and all my good credit. I was $200,000 in debt and homeless when my parents passed away.
When I was initially introduced to 4Life Transfer Factor®, I wanted nothing to do with it. I received call after call from Dr. Gary Haagen, a retired chiropractor from Washington, who was one of the very first 4Life distributors. When I saw the difference the product made in my life, it got my attention and I knew I could build a business with 4Life. I began developing my business one day at a time and now my organization, which we call Team Bond, is literally all over the world. What once seemed impossible became possible.
I now live in Clovis, California, with my family, who travels the world with me. It was my dream to have my family living on one estate together, and now my son, daughter-in-law, two granddaughters, and three dogs live with me on the estate. My daughter and adopted daughter live in other areas of the United States.
I am committed to continuing to help my organization as we take 4Life across the globe. I have created a website with my team that gives distributors around the world access to what they need for success. Distributors need a place for prospecting, training, and mentoring. They need to stay in touch with a team and in tune with activities across the world. With this kind of connection, we all can stay motivated and find the strength to succeed.
I know that each step we take, and with every effort we make, we are enriching the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Team Bond believes in and practices the 4Life philosophy of Together, Building People!

Kelly Clarkson—Wow! This truly is BIG!
We thought the line-up for BIG Convention 2010 was already stellar, but to have Kelly Clarkson perform just for 4Life distributors during the closing party is truly exciting. An already incredible convention registration value just went way up. And if you have any doubts about whether or not you'll be able to attend convention, just tell your kids or grandkids that Kelly Clarkson will be there and they will be begging you to go... and they'll want to come with you!
We first remember hearing Kelly sing when she competed on American Idol. We got into the excitement with our children and we all cheered her on. It was evident that she was destined for stardom. After being crowned the very first winner of American Idol, Kelly went on to win Grammys, MTV Video Music Awards, and American Music Awards. Her four albums to date have sold over 20 million copies worldwide!
We hope it's easy to see that we're serious when we say that this is going to be a BIG convention—business-changing announcements, phenomenal new products, and now an exciting celebrity! We know the place will be rocking, and we don't want one single 4Life distributor to miss out on the fun. Be sure and look up some of Kelly's music so you can sing along during our personal, 4Life-only concert.

Sadik's family is an amazing example of the power of teamwork. A few years ago, Sadik's powerhouse sister Sheri attended convention for the first time and began introducing her family to the 4Life opportunity. After a few short years, Sadik has risen to the rank of Platinum International Diamond. Sheri and their brother Akram are both Gold International Diamonds, and many other family members have become successful 4Life distributors. This family works together, plays together, and builds their businesses together. What a wonderful model for all of us!
We are also thrilled about the recent overall growth in Singapore and Malaysia. From January to April of 2010, 4Life Singapore was up 53% over 2009. Malaysia posted an 88% increase during that time. Congratulations to Sadik Din and Hasnimah and congratulations to the hard-working 4Life distributors in Singapore and Malaysia!
