BIG Stories of Sacrifice

It's been truly amazing to hear stories about distributors who sacrificed so much to be with us at BIG Convention 2010. Here are just a few:

Sabino and Abigail QuiƱones

International Diamonds Sabino and Abigail QuiƱones from Mexico coordinated everything so that more than 50 distributors could travel to convention by bus. Planning for the excursion took over six months, with Sabino and Abigail organizing the bus rental, hotel reservations, food, and logistics. Most distributors in their group had to save for several months to afford the trip. Many shared hotel rooms and ate at less expensive locations to save money. Sabino and Abigail have said they make this huge sacrifice because attending convention—the speeches they hear, the friendships they make, and the motivation they gain from executives and leaders—helps them recharge their strength and better build their business.

In addition, many Muslim distributors attended convention. They traveled from several different countries around the world—some as far away as Singapore and Malaysia. We learned that convention took place during one of the most important Muslim holidays, Hari Raya Aidilfitri, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadhan. During Hari Raya Aidilfitri, family and friends celebrate together at home and in their places of worship. They prepare special foods, decorate their homes, and give and receive presents. We were touched to find out that so many of our Muslim distributors chose to come to convention and forgo spending this special time with their families.

Thank you to all of you for the sacrifices you made to attend BIG Convention 2010. We're sure you know by now that it was well worth the effort!

An Open Letter to All of Our Amazing Distributors

Our hearts are full after seeing so many of you at BIG Convention 2010 in Salt Lake City, Utah a few weeks ago. Once again, we were so impressed by the caliber of people in our 4Life family. We were truly touched by your expressions of love and support. We met some of you after convention on our flight to New York and also on our flight back to Europe. We are grateful that so many of you came from so far to be with us. We always thoroughly enjoy the chance to meet our 4Life distributors in person.

A few of you that we met asked to take a picture with us. For the most part, we were able to fulfill these requests, but unfortunately, in a few instances, we weren't able to make it work. Please know that in these cases, we either had to get to a meeting or there were just too many people to accommodate everyone who wanted the opportunity to take a photo with us. Having to turn down any requests is our least favorite part of convention. We are thankful that we were able to meet so many of you, hear your great stories, and be inspired by your enthusiasm for 4Life. We have heard several stories about the enormous sacrficies that many of you made to be with us. Next week, we would like to share a few of these stories on the blog.

We are already looking forward to the next convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, April 18–21, 2012!

New Transferceutical Products™ at BIG Convention 2010

Wow! For those of you who weren't with us at BIG Convention 2010, we were thrilled to introduce several new products, including two products for our Targeted Transfer Factor® line—4Life® NanoFactor® Glutamine Prime and 4Life Transfer Factor® KBU. One of the three pillars of 4Life is science. 4Life is known in the nutritional supplement industry for its cutting-edge products that are based on groundbreaking research. Here's a review of the BIG news about some great new products to add to your 4Life arsenal of immune system defense.

4Life NanoFactor Glutamine Prime provides specific support directly to your immune cells. It supports the immune system by providing extra fuel to immune cells with an amino acid called glutamine. Think of it as premium fuel for your immune cells. This helps power immune cell activity and provides the building blocks for the powerful and essential antioxidant glutathione. NanoFactor extract provides enhanced communication between immune cells, leading to appropriate immune cell response and healthy immune system function.

4Life Transfer Factor KBU is formulated to support the entire urinary system. Targeted ingredients like cranberry, blueberry, dandelion leaf, and juniper berry give you the cleansing support you need for the healthy function of your bladder and kidneys. In addition, 4Life Transfer Factor® supports your body's immune response and helps strengthen urinary tract health.

Platinum International Diamond Dream Stories: Dave and Gabriela Daughtrey

The history of 4Life would not be complete without Dave and Gabriela and their faith in the message of this company. Their enthusiasm for 4Life and 4Life Transfer Factor® has fueled 4Life's success from the beginning. How thankful we are for their dedication, and their examples of the best values for which a person can aspire. Their ability to teach and influence others is making a great difference throughout the world today. The two of them are such an incredible team!

I studied electronic engineering in college, but decided early on that I was better suited for an entrepreneurial career. Before being introduced to 4Life, I spent over 20 years in the network marketing industry, both as a consultant and distributor. After a series of successes and failures, I found myself in a difficult situation. In 1998, I was living in a small apartment with very little money, and I had been combating chronic health problems for several years.

While I was searching for what was next, I learned about 4Life from a close friend. I had never heard of something that could educate your immune system. The more I learned about 4Life Transfer Factor®, the more I became interested in marketing the product. During a trip to Utah to meet the 4Life executive team and see the Home Office, Gabriela and I decided to sign up as distributors. That was the day that one decision changed the future of our family. 4Life offered me the opportunity to build a real business, to build something for my future and my family's future.

When I first started, I didn't even have a car. But we made a decision and never looked back. Gabriela and I both felt that 4Life was going to be a successful company, with or without us. Becoming Platinum International Diamonds has helped us lead the way for others, and is hopefully an inspiration. This has been such an exciting and rewarding journey. We are proof that anyone willing to get involved and remain persistent can reach the top. We have built our dream house on top of a mountain in California with a great ocean view. We enjoy traveling, playing sports, and spending time with our six children: Diana, Leslie, Marcos, Fernanda, Brandon, and Ryan.

I continue to be very involved in all the markets where 4Life has a presence, and I have personally traveled to every country in which 4Life has an international office. My desire now is to see others achieve their goals and share in the same freedom I have experienced. Everybody has dreams and aspirations in life. One of the great things about 4Life is that by Together, Building People we can help each other accomplish those dreams and achieve success. No matter your definition of success, you can accomplish it with 4Life.
