Herbalife International’s company history began back in 1980 by its founder, Mark Hughes. He was motivated as he watched his mother try many dangerous diets in attempt to lose weight, which eventually killed her. He wanted a personal approach to helping people with their health, so he began the company as a direct selling or network marketing company. He did this also to allow a remarkable business opportunity to be available to help peole financially.
Herbalife’s first year in sales was 2 million dollars. It has grown since then to nearing the close out of 2010 at 5 billion. There are thousands upon thousands of independent distributors helping people with these amazing products now and earning an income to boot. It has now grown to its 80th country in which it does business. They are also listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The company has a strong history from day 1 and seems to be getting stronger and stronger each year. It is a global company with potential that appears to be unlimited. They continue to be #1 in the industry year after year.
Mark says there are 3 simple steps to this business, that is, using the products, wearing the button and talking with people. In today’s world, wearing the button can come in different forms and talking with people all over the world is now possible. People are able to reach more people easier these days, so the people being helped is incredible. Mark says it simply takes commitment, determination and perseverance to change your life physically and financially.
