My Last Blog

Happy Late Spring!!!!

As with every season there is change.  My business has changed.  I will remain a distributor of Nu Skin products and as such will continue to serve you, my customers, but will no longer be actively seeking new business through blogs, Facebook and newsletters.  You may be wondering, why? 

I began having issues with Nu Skin when they did not like my blog because I used the company name, Nu Skin, and product names along with product images. In good faith to maintain an amiable relationship with Nu Skin, Joy removed the company name, product names and images from the blog.  Not but two months later Nu Skin copied the exact layout of my blog to update their own. Recently, they added “product tips” just like I had in my blog.  Unable to properly market the products in my blog and with no marketing help from Nu Skin corporate against the mass marketing by Avon and Mary Kay, just to name two competitors, expanding my business became impossible.  But the “icing on the cake” was when the FDA stopped Nu Skin from selling the Galvanic Facial Spa.  In December, the FDA decided it was a “medical device” and required a prescription from a doctor.  Competitors market similar yet less effective devices.  Nu Skin’s primary focus is on the Asian markets where there is no FDA.  They even have retail outlets in China.  I feel that due to complications with the FDA and who knows who else, Nu Skin has left the North American distributors without both, marketing support and direction.

I still love the products and use them.  The ageLOC anti-aging products are the best I’ve ever used.  The LifePak Nano vitamins have helped me look and feel better than any supplements I have ever taken. So, I am happy to assist you in any way I can with your products to look and feel your best.

This is my last newsletter.  If Nu Skin has a new and exciting product, I will email you personally.  Please feel free to email me at

FYI: I'm never bored. I am now the President/CEO of eduGuard, an online classroom for California Security Guards. Joy and I have been working hard to get this business off the ground (and into the cloud.)
