First Meeting With Humphrey

Well as promised, Humphrey came down from London yesterday to meet us for our first business planning meeting, after a 6 hour train journey to Falmouth and a 2 hour meeting he then started a 6 hour journey back to London!

For us this journey and comitment was a sign of good times ahead, this is not a wing and a prayer business this is an actual business man who wanted us to succeed in his group.

As promised Humphrey walked in just after 1 o'clock and wasted no time in questioning us on where we wanted to go, he seemed to like the answer 'To the top!' as that is what he and his wife kathy had done over the last 8 years. My main short term goal was to earn a living in the next three months (by the time our baby in born) and to be able to provide for Michelle and our baby when he or she gets here (we still dont know which it is). After having this discussion Humphrey broke the news and told us this was going to be hard work to produce the return I was after in this space of time......

.... (which was not good news!) ........

However he said he liked our attitude and that we had 3 months of hard work to be getting on with and that it was still possible to do so and less committed people had achieved this. He also reminded us that the opportunity was not a 'get rich quick' scheme but a 'get rich if you put in the hard work over time scheme'

So as a result Ive spent today producing and tweaking our website with an integrated webshop
which is now live at, and also listing on as many free business directories I could find online.

I quite like the idea of a 'get rich if you put in the hard work over time scheme'  and not so much a 'get rich quick scheme'  In a nutshell this maybe what we are looking for and we like the thought of the hard work for the eventual benefits that come with it!

Today sees the launch of our new business venture, AloePlanet, we have signed up to work with FOREVER LIVING PRODUCTS. after seeing a promotional video online from the global company with its headquarters in America, we decided to find out more about the opportunity and thats when we realised that the FOREVER LIVING PRODUCTS opportunity was not like anything else as we spoke to a real person! After speaking to Humphrey Gervais who will become our mentor, we went to a business presentation near Truro to find out another bit more - the stages of finding out information are slow and steady but we found this is the best way as nothing is rushed or missed out. 

At the presentation we met people who had just started, people who were taking it slow and people who were flying and had quit professional jobs to work less hours for better money!

The appealling part for us was the freedom of the business and the very simple and very repeatable plan of action that FOREVER LIVING PRODUCTS offer, training days are available wherever you are in over 150 countries so support was not an issue and Humphrey is always on the end of the phone or email.

We have decided that we want to start our own team and earn commission on the teams sales as well as our own which is two of the options available.

We have now fully signed up and registered with her majesty and are itching to get cracking, the web domain has been bought and a temporary website is online. The next step is to meet Humphrey next Wednesday afternoon (who is coming from london to meet us!) and put a marketing plan into action.

This business start is quite an exciting venture for both of us and although I have been self employed in the past - this looks a little different to what im used to - but in a good way
