YEVO ~ It's Almost Launch Time

Two months later and a couple of things have changed about the non-GMO food company I wrote about last year. Mostly, it's my understanding that has changed. I finally "get it!"

It's about healing our world with food. It's about preventing nutritional deficiencies that probably cause our bodies to prematurely fail. It's about satisfying our body's need for 43 essential nutrients so we don't keep eating and eating (at least in the US) to quiet our internal drive for health and instead, just end up obese and nutritionally deficient.

I get it!!! Now, I'm excited and driven to get the word out about Yevo.

Weird name, I know!  So was Google and that has become a daily part of our vernacular.

The launch is now set for February 1st, so you have time to check it out and get in and I recommend you do. It's just food, healthy food, that can go from shelf to table quickly.

No more need for the drive-thru and the ensuing guilt for feeding your family that *&@*#. We love it, I too, but America has an obesity epidemic. How sad is it that our kids are projected to have shorter lives than us? We should be ashamed!

Go here:

Get in now, then research it later; you have time before any money leaves your hand.

New Company Looks Promising - Organic, Non-GMO Food Delivered

New Pre-launch Opportunity

Convenient, easy to use, dehydrated, affordable, 

simple, non-GMO, delicious, nutrient dense, organic 


Hmmm? Very interesting!

Below is a promo I received. It's a bit hypey, it is mlm afterall, but it grabbed 

my attention and interest. I added my name to my prospective sponsor's list.

If, after you read this, you want to be added to mine, just email me and say 

"Add me to the non-gmo list" with your name, if your email won't supply that. 

Email:  micha7v  at  g mail dot com

Opportunity is knocking at your door, and this is the most significant business opportunity 
EVER. The opportunity is set to be epic. The company seems to have all the ingredients formassive success. 

There have been a few network marketing companies who have tried to develop the food market, but no one has EVER done it right… until now. There is a BRAND NEW FOOD 
COMPANY that is destined to be a billion dollar mega giant. 
The nutritional supplement industry is a $38 billion per year industry, but the FOOD industry is a $4.3 TRILLION per year industry. 

It is very important that you understand there is nothing typical about this business venture

Most companies have to try to get investors to supply start-up capital if they expect to have a fighting chance of launching their business to its fullest potential. The good news is our company has hundreds of millions at their fingertips, without having to seek any outside funding! We are going beyond just dehydrated packaged food (which is a huge industry) and we are going far beyond the supplement industry, because we are bringing a nutrient dense, whole food packaged product line to the market to replace many of the common and mostly nutrient empty foods. We will be delivering real, nutritious food to the mainstream in the trillion dollar industry of something that we all need: FOOD.

Right Now! (Before Pre-launch)
You are one of the first people in the world to learn about this! Those of you who startspreading the word now will reap the residual rewards for years to come. By reachingout to a few folks now, you have the potential to create a long term residual income 
for the rest of your life!

The company has already purchased (for $5 million) its own 95,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Reno, Nevada and is currently investing an additional $3 million into the retrofitting of this facility. The company has spent a lot of money and hired top designers to generate content for branding, images, systems and marketing tools so we can really promote professionally and go viral quickly. Movie-quality videos and a plethora of social media marketing tools that will cross all mediums will be available for iPads, mobile phones, computers, etc. All of this will be available when we pre-launch.
November 15, 2014 (Pre-launch)
The company will be pre-launching on November 15, 2014 with FREE SIGNUPS, which will include beautiful personalized self-replicating websites, with movie-quality production videos outlining the company, the products and the opportunity. 
The company name will be revealed at this time. Also included will be sizzle calls, corporate conference calls, and a comprehensive back office to monitor your team's growth. You will be able to sign up and access your back office in order to build and view your genealogical tree. 
There will be no transactions, just marketing materials and access to gain full understanding of our company and products so that you can begin to build your team. You will have two entire months to build your business at no cost to you.
January 15, 2015 (Launch)
We will be launching on January 15, 2015. All the orders that were placed during our pre-launch between November 15 and January 14, 2015 will be processed on January 15, 2015. No charges will be applied to your credit cards until our launch. 

There will be multiple selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks and beverages and over 100 foods like macaroni and cheese, chili, mashed potatoes and sausage, fettuccine alfredo, oatmeal, ramen noodles, soups, puddings, vitamin enhanced coffee and tea. 
The company's nutrient dense food has water soluble nutrients, fat soluble nutrients, amino acids, essential fatty acids, full mineral complex, macro and micro nutrients so the meals are satisfying and filling because they supply the nutrients necessary for health.

Example: Unlike regular, plain oatmeal (which is very high in carbs), a bowl of OUR oatmeal has 26 grams of protein (equivalent to a 16 ounce rib-eye) 1½ grams of Omega 3s (equivalent to 4 cod liver oil capsules), 11 grams of fiber (equivalent to 2 cups of broccoli) and provides 50% of the 43 essential nutrients that your body requires. 

February 2015 and Beyond
Mexico will open for business in February 2015. Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Singapore will open for business soon thereafter. Everything will be 100% on the ground (OTG). This means that these countries will be opened with an office and a full staff on the ground. We plan to do business correctly in each country and will be building for the long term. We will NOT be offering NFRs (Not For Resale). 

Every international market will be treated appropriately. We do not want our documents and websites to look like American translations. We will be investing in local marketing companies to create localized and culturally correct material.

Getting Back To Basics of Good Nutrition
Today, we are in a health crisis and there is a lot of confusion regarding nutrition. People who are trying to address their health have many issues to consider. (Organic, Non-GMO, Antioxidants, Gluten-Free, etc.) 
These issues, although very important, are not addressing the bottom line: FOOD is meant to nourish our bodies. What our bodies need from the foods that we eat everyday are 43 essential nutrients. These essential nutrients are compounds that your body CANNOT make. You must consume them in your diet regularly to properly nourish your body. 

Most people are eating empty foods and are actually starving inside because they are not getting these 43 essential nutrients. When you finally start to consume these nutrients, your body will signal your brain that you are being nourished. 
These 43 essential nutrients ensure that your cells are able to sustain health and promote growth. The general population is probably not even getting half of their daily nutritional requirements. This foundational weakness is at the root of many of the diseases that are so common today.
The Problem
· According to the World Health Organization (WHO), our cells require 43 essentials nutrients.
· Essential nutrients, by definition, are not manufactured by the body. They must be derived through an external source and are essential to sustain life and support healthy growth of our cells. 
· Most people receive only a small fraction of these 43 essential nutrients. 
· What few essential nutrients people actually get are in fractional quantities of the recommended daily intake. 
· There already exists an abundance of medical studies correlating the absence of these 43 essential nutrients with major disease conditions.
· Most things we eat today do not satisfy the definition of food - any nutritious substance that people eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth.
· Modern foods are high in calories and extremely low in nutrient value.
· We are starving by eating empty food. We are literally eating ourselves to death.
See Next Page for the Solution…
Our Solution
The product line includes over 100 common foods that we all enjoy such as macaroni and cheese, chili, mashed potatoes and sausage, fettuccine alfredo, oatmeal, ramen noodles, soups, puddings, vitamin enriched coffee and tea. 
· Each food product provides 50% of the 43 Essential Nutrients our bodies need every day. 
· Two servings a day will provide 100% of your daily Essential Nutritional needs. 
· Each serving is 400 calories or less, but these are NOT "diet foods."
· All of the foods come in a convenient dehydrated form, and only need water to be added. 
· All products for Korea, Japan, etc. will be shipped from within their country. 
· All of the foods have a shelf life of over 3 years. (great for survivalists) 
· Not in canisters - there will be various serving sizes with family specific size servings. 
· The food product line will continue to grow and will always be made from whole food ingredients. 
· All food product ingredients will be grown in the USA. 
· The products are consumable, creating repeat buyers and long term stability. 
· Each meal serving will retail at a price between $3.50 and $4.00. 
· Wholesale will be 10%-15% less than retail.
· Product is Light . . . shipping will be small. All products for Korea, Japan, etc. will be shipped out from within their own country. 
· Not in Canisters. There will be various serving sizes with family specific size servings. 
· We are providing healthier, convenient, high-quality food choices. With multiple Breakfast foods, Lunch foods and Dinner foods, as well as snacks and drinks.
Scientific Advisory Board 
The company's Scientific Advisory Board includes top nutrition professors from Harvard, Yale and UC Davis, top chefs and renowned formulators, including Chip Marsden, who formulated for Barry Sears of the Zone Diet. 
Together these amazingly talented individuals have developed a spectacular product line. They have re-created over 100 common foods that we all enjoy often, with the added quality of providing 100% of the 43 essential nutrients our bodies need every day (macro and micro nutrients). 

There will be many documents to learn more about how all of the ingredients and whole foods (with all 43 of the essential nutrients naturally occurring), allow your digestive and biochemical/hormonal systems to be properly activated so that they can send ‘satiety’ signals your body in order to curb your hunger.
Who will be interested?
Bottom line . . . Food is meant to nourish our bodies. This product line has endless potential. Busy Moms with a passion for keeping their family healthy will now have a quick, simple affordable, nutritious option. 
Every mother and father on the planet who has a busy, hectic lifestyle will want to be able to quickly choose from any of our 100+ pre-packaged, healthy, nutritious, tasty, affordable meals. They will be able to quickly deliver a quality meal to themselves and their family, without the nightmare of slaving in the kitchen for hours on end every day! 
What about all the millions of kids that are home alone at times, and need access to convenient, nutritious food?

In addition to the tens of millions of campers, hikers and hunters, what about the tens of millions of survivalists who are preparing for the unknown? What about the millions of college students who are eating pure junk food every day? 
Japanese attribute "Cup of Noodles" to saving millions of lives after the Tsunami. These products offer real, whole food nutrition with fiber, macro and micro nutrients and taste delicious and could be of benefit in the event of a disaster. 

EVERYONE who can benefit from healthy, convenient, affordable food should be 

Executive Team - Company Leadership
A company is no better than the management running it, and the money they have to launch it properly. The management team assembled with this new food company is second to none, and they have already invested well over $5 million in start-up capital.

Peter M. Castleman, Founder and Chairman of the Board:
Mr. Castleman graduated from Duke University at the top of his class in Economics, became a Professor at Harvard, then worked on Wall Street, first with JP Morgan, then as Managing Partner at Whitney Capital Equity Group with mergers and acquisitions. Peter bought North Face outerwear company when it was going bankrupt, and turned it into a 3 billion per year company and then sold it. He did the same with Igloo, and many others. Peter started importing Chinese herbs, grew a company to $50M/year and then sold it to NuSkin. This became Pharmanex, which NuSkin then grew to almost $1 billion per year. 

Peter was impressed with the power of network marketing. Four years after Marc Hughes of Herbalife passed away, Peter encouraged his partners at Whitney to purchase Herbalife. They bought Herbalife when it was at $700+ million per year, and within 5 years with Peter as the Chairman of the Board, Herbalife grew to over $3 billion per year. Peter then tried to personally purchase Herbalife with his own funds, but could not come to a meeting of minds on the pricing. His dream for many years has been to start his own network marketing company with its own culture and mission, and with a passion for health. Thus a new company was born! Peter will make sure that there is never a shortage of funds to grow our business (Peter’s net worth is estimated at $850M). Peter says that he will be disappointed if we only become a billion dollar company. We are not in competition with any network marketing company. Our competition is Nestle and Proctor and Gamble.
David Brown, CEO and $1 Million Equity Investor:
David has over 20 years’ experience as a corporate lawyer, and President and CEO in the nutritional industry. and he speaks fluent Japanese. David was the CEO of LifeVantage, and maintained a 300% per year growth rate there. ($11M 1st year, $38.9M 2nd year, and $126M 3rd year) 
Gene Tipps, COO: 
Gene’s experience in building operations backbones for multi-million dollar direct selling companies (Tahitian Noni, Agel, Zrii, LifeVantage), both domestically and abroad, has made him a sought after expert across the industry. He has lived in and developed markets in many corners of the globe including Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Pacific. Additionally, his extensive familiarity with nutritional products makes him the perfect person to direct the operations team. His industry experience has given Gene the insight to understand that distributors need quality products, on time, and in large supply. Gene will ensure that this is always the case with our company - whether domestic or international. The Asian Development Executive Management Team has vast experience opening and developing these markets. The goal is to open Korea and Japan the same way NuSkin did in Japan, with over 60,000 joining day one. 
Thomas McLamore, Consultant, Technologist & Analyst:
Adagio, Managing Director/President of North America. Built Amway’s call center system which is still used today and Nu-Skin’s ERP system and systems for many other well established companies that are over 1 billion in sales annually. Mr. McLamore is Korean and speaks fluent Korean and Japanese. 
Jason Domingo, Master Distributor and $1 Million Equity Investor:
Mr. Domingo was also the Master Distributor at Zrii and Master Distributor at LifeVantage. 
Compensation Plan [Not Yet Finalized]
The compensation plan is very lucrative (designed by Dan Jensen Consulting) and will be easy to understand and explain, with no BV, CV or points to confuse people. There will be no Business Volume (BV) assigned to products. All commissions will be based on the purchase price of the products. If you sell $100 worth of products, then a full $100 will go into the compensation plan. Approximately 40%-50% of the cost of the products will be paid out in commissions. Over 43% payout with Fast Start at 50%.

Autoship will be between $40 - $200 monthly depending on rank. Personal Customers volume will count towards the autoship.
Upon joining, distributors can simply just sign- up for $25.00 and buy whatever amount of FOOD they wish. It is not mandatory to purchase one of the 3 ready-made start-up packages [no details on packages yet].

If you are interested in being a customer or a distributor, please contact me 

I am building my team on paper NOW and you will be placed in the order that you 

It is FREE to sign up during the pre-launch in November and then at launch, it will
cost very little ($25) to get started at the basic level, so if you think you might want to
build the business, I recommend you sign up during the pre-launch in November!

Update on Aromatherapy Jewelry at Events

Like us on Facebook:

It's market season, so most of the aromatherapy jewelry is headed outdoors to enjoy the sun and the people at Rogers Farmer's Market, Bentonville First Friday and...maybe one more venue soon.  If you found us there, thank you for stopping by our blog. : )

If you haven't seen the pieces that enable you to wear your favorite essential oils in jewelry and switch out oils whenever you desire, please do come out and see us. You'll find us by following your nose along the wafting essential oils diffusing in the air.

While you're there, check out the fabulous local produce and cool local art and craft works available. AND...enter our drawing for an aromatherapy pendant. I draw a name each week. I post the names on my Facebook page. Please like our page while you're there to be updated on market venues classes, sharing evenings and special sales for Facebook readers.

The pictures show just a couple of the designs available and there are more coming, as are replacement felt balls so you can switch out your oils. We have three pendant sizes and most are silver plated, while a few are gold plated. They are presented simply, on ribbon, to keep prices affordable and enable you to slip them onto your favorite chain.

After testing, we have established that the oil will diffuse for about a week from the felt pendant inserts and for about one day on the lava bead pieces.

Included with your pendant is the initial oil infusion of your felt (usually about 3 drops) of the oil of your choice. Once you are ready to re-infuse to refresh your oil, we have 1 mL vials of several oils available for sale at very reasonable prices. You can also purchase more felt inserts. If you bring your pendant by, I'll give you a couple of extras which were not available in the first couple of weeks we were at events.

New designs are in the works all the time and I'm excited to unveil them in a couple of weeks.

Rogers Farmer's Market runs Wednesday and Saturdays from 7am (where's my peppermint oil infused coffee?) til 1pm.

Bentonville First Friday runs from a much more civilized 11am until 8pm. It gets crazy crowded after 5pm - think big city peak hour subway crowded - so if that doesn't sound like fun, plan to come earlier in the day.

If you are not in the area, the aromatherapy jewelry will soon be available in my Etsy, or Artfire shop and once they are, I'll post the links.

If you are in the area, consider yourself invited to one of our local classes about the uses of essential oils and how to switch out your medicine cabinet with healthier essential oils instead. We hold them about every second week. I usually post them on my Facebook page, but message me to see when the next one is scheduled and do let me know if you plan to attend so we can chat.

Maybe More Revenue is better than More Frugality for Money Goals?

Seems obvious, right?  Then, why do so many financial gurus stress cutting back and squeezing every ounce of worth out of each penny?

If your goal is to save for something, pay down debt or provide for a child's education or your own retirement, your handling of money may have to change, but is increased frugality the correct answer for you?

Perhaps, perhaps not. It depends on what you know about yourself.

I'm not suggesting throwing money around like a teen girl in the 80's at the mall, but perhaps eating noodles every night isn't in your best interests to achieve your goal.  Cutting unnecessary expenditures is always good and I'm all for not spending more than necessary, like on cell phone service. Ugh! What a fiasco of greed that industry is, but that's not the subject here.

Does scrimping and doing without to the extreme make your life more of a soul-sucking experience than a vibrant joyous adventure?  For some people, it would be a game, a challenge to win, but to others, it's a depressing period to be endured.

What if increasing your revenue in creative ways is a better way to go?  What if looking at your possessions, talents and hobbies in a new light could produce additional income possibilities?

Here are some ideas:

Sell stuff you don't use on EBay, Craigslist or Etsy/Artfire is it applies.

Sell your time and skills or tutor, work, consult, provide a service.

Create something and sell it, or the plans/patterns to create it.

Start a home business with an already established company in a product niche you enjoy.

House sit, pet sit, transport people.

Ask for a raise at work.

Garden for those like me with no green thumbs, but a voracious veggie habit.

You get the idea. Start thinking of ways to bring in extra income to fund your project.  Maybe you'll enjoy the process more.

Good luck and enjoy the journey.

Thinking of Having a Booth at a Community Event - Do It!

If your business needs more exposure and you are considering taking a booth at a public community event, fair, craft show, whatever, stop thinking and start doing.

For years, and yes, I mean years, I quibbled and I procrastinated, and I wasted valuable time that my business could have been growing at a faster rate by not doing events. So get on it, commit to it and get it done.  You'll thank me later...after you can talk again, lol.

It was by far, the most fun I have had sharing my business in years.  I mean, I market essential oils, so they smell good, well, there's a couple that smell challenging, but most of them have the most captivating aromas, so people respond very well.

That was taken before I finished setting up and yes, I must iron that drape next time, lol.

Got Stress? Me too!

New job, building a business, planning events and classes and just day to day life. Even if it is fun and purposeful, it can still be stressful.  So, what to do?

Take time for yourself, find joy in the simple things, laugh with your family and friends, pet your companion critter, work on a hobby, get a massage, escape to nature.

All good options, but...most of all, reduce the constant clatter, chatter and calamity screaming screens.

Have you noticed that everywhere you go lately it seems, there is noise and stimulation?  My gosh, do we really need motion activated screens in grocery stores and at gas stations?  Are we that incapable of being quiet that we must always have input every second?

If you ask me, it's just a way to dumb down the masses by never ever giving us a moment to think beyond immediate shallow possibilities.


As always, the best alternative when you can't just turn off or unplug, is essential oils.  For stress in particular, my favorite, far over Lavender or even Peace and Calming, but just short of Jasmine, or an evergreen forest, is...

Stress Away is a delightful blend of Copaiba (Copaifera reticulata), Lime (Citrus lime), Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica), Vanilla (Vanilla planifolia), Ocotea (Ocotea quixos), Lavender (Lavandula officinalis).

Get it, use it and relax!

Young Living Essential Oil 101 Classes and Treating Ear Infections (a rabbit trail)

Recently, I've been involved in sharing Young Living introductory essential oil classes and it is fascinating to see people's eyes open to the power and possibilities of these amazing oils and taking the responsibility for their simple health maintenance back into their own hands.


One woman said to me last night "I always just took my Dr's advice and never looked beyond the white coat".  I know what she means. You should respectfully consider your Dr.'s advice, but always do your own research and trust what is right for your family. For life threatening situations, or surgical needs, you can't beat them, but just make sure that degree of intervention is required.


My awakening occurred when my young 3 year old daughter was having ear infections every month. We reached the stage after repeated antibiotic prescriptions that her Pediatrician, a wonderful Dr btw, suggested tubes.  I refused and sought out a second opinion at Bastyr University in Seattle, a teaching Naturopathic and healing center focusing on other modalities.

                     An aerial view of the Bastyr campus taken during the fall.

A team of two (one a student) spent a couple of hours going over her health history and lifestyle and the root cause of her recurring condition was deemed to be lactose intolerance, a simple milk allergy. Just digging a little deeper with the right background education and changing the focus to look at cause, not symptom relief, produced a No Surgery Needed diagnosis. They wrote the order that I had to carry for years that she was not to ingest animal milk products. To this day, 18 years later, she will still get sick if she gives into her milk-shake or ice-cream craving.


I realize how blessed we were to have that resource so readily available since living in more remote areas for decades with no alternative practitioners for hours. Now though, with the power of the internet, so much more information is at hand.

Well, that was a rabbit trail, so back to the point. When it comes to your health, you are the one responsible to research, research, research until something works.  Oh, by the way, if you look in the Reference Book for Essential Oils, you would find Melrose and Immupower suggested for ear infections.

Search out Introduction to Young Living Essential Oils on Youtube and you'll find some good information if you don't have a class close by. I'll be recording one soon, but in case you want to see one before then, here you go (LaDonna is not related in any way to my group, but it's a good presentation):


My suggestion is that you first consider the natural, God-given substances before the man-made created ones and essential oils are right at the top of that list.  

Enjoy your learning journey.
