Jeff Olson – Best Selling Author and Ripple Maker

Jeff Olson

I have admired Jeff Olson for many years, in fact ever since I first read his book the Slight Edge, his best selling personal development book. which recently had it’s 8th anniversary edition released. To make it better Jeff encourages his organization to give back to the Community through support for Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization and the Nerium Gives Back Program.

Who is Jeff Olson?

Jeff over the last 30 years has helped countless people improve their life through financial and time freedom.  Jeff knows a thing or to about personal development.  He founded the People’s Network which produced over 900 television programs around personal excellence in health, finances, relationships, and more.

Of course Jeff has worked with the greats of personal development but more recently with Shawn Achor who has written two books on why Happiness is such a huge advantage.  You know Happy people are more successful?

Jeff started life in corporate America and since then has worked with a series of sales, marketing, and distribution companies.  He has a record unsurpassed by anybody in the industry for building sales and distribution forces into multimillion dollar organizations from scratch, and the current one he is CEO of.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

It is through his current company that he has focused on the personal development of the Brand Partners, GIVING every one of them, for FREE, a copy of the Slight Edge when they join the organization.  It is within this organization that the Nerium Gives Back Program was created to encourage the teams to give back to their communities.

The other big organization that Jeff himself, his team and his organization are involved with is Big Brother Big Sisters.  His company is currently one of the biggest donors to the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization.  Jeff is donating 50% of the net proceeds of the new edition of the Slight Edge to the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization.  You can check out the book on my Books Page.

The Slight Edge

Slight Edge from Jeff Olson

The Slight Edge is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choices that will lead you to success and the happiness you desire. In the book you will learn why some can make dreams come true while others spend their hours building dreams for others.

You should think of the Slight Edge as the key to unlock all those other how-to and self help books.  If you put the concepts that Jeff talks about into practice you truly can create powerful results.

Well worth a read, I will leave you with one final though from Jeff , one of the most down to earth servant leaders I know.

The truth is, what you do matters. What you do today matters. What you do every day matters. Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them and they do them over and over and over until the compound effect kicks in. – Jeff Olson

Road Map to Lexus


I had to post this form my wife on receiving her Lexus from Nerium

FINALLY!! Our new ‘baby’ is here!!

I am so Grateful to so many and have many Thank You’s! WARNING: this is gonna sound like an Oscar speech with tears included!

The Story: I joined Nerium May 1, 2012 and qualified for their Lexus Bonus in 3 months. At the time, we were in the process of selling our home and buying a new one so I opted to receive the 7 bottles of the night time treatment – as we had so many people wanting to try it and we needed the bottles more than a new car at the time 

I believe things happened for a reason and a few weeks ago, I attended PBN (Professional Business Networking) meeting and was introduced to Rony Chavez (that’s him in the picture!),who works for a Company called Autoflex. This Company is a leasing company but as part of it’s service finds the car you want, brings it to you to test drive, deals with the paperwork and gets you the BEST deal – cuz let’s face it, I very much DISLIKE the hassle of car dealerships!

Lexus and autoflex

Selecting that Lexus

After meeting Rony – I knew this was the time to FINALLY get our Lexus GS 350. We told Rony what we wanted (GS350 Sport) in Silver. He found us that car, brought it over to PBN for Andy to test drive (I was unable to go that day). Well Andy fell in love as, being a Brit – well former Brit! – the sport features REALLY appealed to him! Then we tried to set up a couple of times for me to test drive it – but due to scheduling conflicts on ou

r part – the car was sold  Rony then found us this one at a dealership in San Antonio and made arrangements for it to be brought here BUT then the Icepacolypse happened!

FINALLY – yesterday evening we took delivery of our new car, signed the paperwork in the comfort of our home AND to top it off – Rony was so impressed with Nerium and the Real Results pictures and the Lexus Bonus program (He believes in Network Marketing) that he became a Preferred Customer and will be attending the Dallas Market Party with his wife next Tuesday – he is TRULY impressed with everything Nerium has accomplished in 27 months, the Nerium Leadership, Philosophy, Live Happy…he is considering becoming a Brand Partner!

So, first – if you don’t want the ‘hassle’ of dealing with the car dealership and want the EASIEST buying experience EVER – please give Rony a call 972-234-0304 xt 454 THANK YOU Rony for all you have done!!

Secondly, and most IMPORTANTLY – I need to say Thank You too:

My AWESOME Team! Without YOUR hard work and dedication and support – we wouldn’t be where we are today. You all are TRULY my Family! I am so VERY VERY grateful for each of you!! and I cannot WAIT for you to get your Lexus’s!! Woohooo!


My AMAZING up line support Team: National Marketing Director Patti Morton (love you lady!), 5 Star National Marketing Directors and #2 Earners Ron Forrester and BizCoach Leslie Hocker- so very, VERY grateful for your love and support since Day 1!

Nerium International for creating this GREAT Company and Opportunity and Product. From the Founders and Leadership down – you have provided us with everything (and MORE) to succeed and realize our Dreams – and we are NOT done! PS – THANK YOU for paying for our New Lexus!

Last, but most certainly NOT least – My hubby Andy Lockhart. He is my Rock. He has ALWAYS believed in me and supported me through thick and thin. While, it took him a few days to ‘warm up’ to trying the product – once he did he was SOLD! Even more so when he looked at the Leadership, Comp plan, etc…So now we do this together and having so MUCH FUN! Have fun with our new Lexus honey – just remember I get to drive it once in awhile!

Nerium Featured on CBS

Recently CBS did an investigation into NeriumAD and Nerium International.  This investigation of the Nerium Products was an extremely positive review by CBS News, despite CBS starting off with a plan to debunk Nerium! The Video below is the segment that was aired on CBS and is a great endorsement on the NeriumAD product.

Jeff Olson on Nerium

Jeff Olson the CEO in this audio explains why he believes Nerium International is a great company to be involved with.  Jeff is really excited by the NeriumAD product as it sits in the Beauty space.  As he says you go into any department store, the first thing you see is beauty products, not coffee, not weight loss or even services.

I believe that finding the right fit in network marketing can be one of the most challenging things to do if you don’t know what exactly to look for. Too many people (including myself) have become too short-sighted in the past, even gullible- and looked for the quick fix i.e. “being at the top in the beginning” and high payout comp plans.

The bottom line is that are a lot of “best paying” comp plans with “revolutionary products” and getting in at the beginning doesn’t really mean anything if that company doesn’t have what it takes to be sustainable and get into serious momentum. There are lots of “gamble opportunities” and far fewer companies that are actually built on a rock-solid foundation with strong core principles.

Lets take a look at what you should look for:


The first thing I want to know is ‘The Who Factor” Who are the guys running the show? What’s their track record for success in the industry? If you have confidence in the Leadership, then you can have confidence that “the What” will take care of itself.

In the case of Nerium CEO and founder, Jeff Olson, is one of the most respected people in the industry with a long proven track record for success. He’s built several multi-million dollar sales & marketing organizations. He’s the author of ‘The Slight Edge’ -produced over 900 tv programs centered around personal development, and keynote speaker at the annual DSA event as well as previously being a consultant advisor to top CEOs of other Direct Sales companies.


A product line with a high barrier of entry and hence makes it hard to copy by other companies or any of the industry giants is a great asset to have. 

neriumADWith Nerium you have a product based on NAE-8, a patented extract and a farming system of Nerium oleander that allows Nerium to control the product from seed to bottle. The research is solely based on human clinical studies and safety standards of the highest efficacy. There are many more products with the patented extract in the pipeline.

Track Record

What is the company’s track record? Who are they? Where are they now? Where are they going? How are they going to get there?

With Nerium they know exactly who they are. They have a strong footprint in the US. They are a 30 month old company with a 20/20 vision and systematic strategy parted in three phases to the year 2020. Nerium goes global in 2014!


  • Received the 2013 DSN Bravo Growth award with 3900% growth.
  • 1st company ever to do $100 Million in their 1st full calendar year.
  • Youngest company to be featured in Success From Home magazine twice!
  • Youngest company ever featured in Direct Selling News
  • Youngest company to make it in the DSN Top 100 direct-selling companies worldwide.
  • 1 product, 1 country, $100 Million
  • 2 years 1 country; 300 Million in sales.
  • Next company projected to be a billion dollar company by DSN
  • 9/10: there are 10 billion dollar companies in the industry. 9 are in beauty/skincare


Although you should never be obsessed with timing, there are some aspects that Nerium just has aligned really nicely.  NeriumAD with the patented extract works and anti-aging skincare is a timeless market.

The company is still only in the US; has not even established itself into Canada or Mexico yet.  Look out 2014 here comes Nerium. The DSA called Nerium the next billion dollar company. This would indicate that Nerium is on the verge of an $700 Million run over the next 1-2 years.

Are you Successful in your Direct Sales?

direct sales


I saw this video on Direct Sales from Todd Falcone and it really resonated with me.  He talks about the statistics in most Direct Sales companies regardless of how successfully they are, that show how many people make no money in the company.  From my own experience I have seen people join and expect that there is an income handed to you on a plate.  It is not that way you have to work and work hard nothing in life is for free.


Direct Sales is Good

Of course all the nay sayers will come out and tell you that Direct Sales is a pyramid scheme and other such comments.  Corporate AmericaBut those no different to any corporation or even the government.  Pyramids are everywhere.  Question is can you make money at what you want to do.

You need to pick a company that has a product or service that you have a passion about. You can have a job in corporate America and have no passion.  In Direct Sales you need to have the passion so as you build your team and your success that passion will be adopted by your team.

The fact is if you are successful in Direct Sales it gives you the opportunity to become financially and time independent providing you but the effort in and as Jim Rohn says:

You work more on Yourself than you do on your job

So if you decide to join a Direct Sales company go in with the right mindset work hard and be consistent.  Pick a company that you can be passionate about and be in it for the long term.  If you want to know more about the Direct Sales company I am involved with CLICK HERE.


Review of NeriumAD

This is a review of NeriumAD an anti-aging product and is from my perspective and I am sure I have missed huge pieces any women out there would love to know! Having said that I hope you find this review useful.

Background on NeriumAD

The Nerium oleander plant has been identified in ancient texts and folklore for more than 1,500 years for its rejuvenating properties.  It stayed in folklore pretty much until the last century when the scientific community took interest in researching its unique properties.

In the most recent research scientists in Turkey, Switzerland, Germany, Latin America, and the United States have worked to understand the beneficial qualities found exclusively in the Nerium oleander plant.

It was during this research that one group of scientists using the Nerium oleander plant, made an accidental discovery: the unique properties of Nerium oleander provided remarkable age-defying results when applied to the skin. This finding led to the creation of the NeriumAD skincare line.

My Experience


I started using Nerium Age Defying Night Cream because my wife thought I should try it, you know 50 is the new 40 and all that!  She was getting amazing results herself so what did I have to lose  but my wrinkles! So I gave it a try.

I had seen the before and after pictures on the website and there are some spectacular results.  Everyone’s skin is different so the results will be different . This picture  shows just one example of the results achieved with NeriumAD, no its not me, but this is a significant improvement for this young lady who had tried many different products.

I also wanted to do a little test of my own and started using NeriumAD on the back of one hand and not the other.  That way I would be able to see how it effected my freckles, wrinkly skin and if one hand feel softer than the other?  I continue to run my little trial to this day.

Although having brown hair and brown eyes I actually have a fairly light complexion and freckles (thanks Dad!).  I don’t tan easily but I can burn without much effort which doesn’t help when you live in Texas!

CosmeticsPeople are getting results with NeriumAD in as little as 5 days others longer just depending on their skin type.  I started to see results in the 10-15 day range and this was when I could see and feel the difference in my skin.

The crows feet to the side of my eyes were definitely softening along with the lines on my forehead. The bags under my eyes have improved and  my overall skin color has evened out. When you apply the NeriumAD you feel your skin tightening, which is normal.

I no longer have those dark blotches of freckles and other hyper-pigmentation marks.  When I compare the backs of my hands I see a significant reduction in the freckles, a softening of the skin and reduction of the wrinkles.  The color on the treated hand is so much more even that the other hand.

How to Apply Nerium AD

nerium day and night

Being a man as most men do skincare is more an after thought or driven by the significant other pushing us than “I most go down the store and buy a skincare product”, but applying NeriumAD is easy.  Just clean your face and leave it damp.

NeriumAD works best when your face is slightly damp, so make sure not to forget this step as the cream is thick and will be harder to apply.  Then go to bed and when you wake up in the morning,  just rinse your face with water.

Then all you need to do in the mornings is shave if you do, apply your NeriumAD Day Cream and you are set for the day. Follow these steps and you’ll see brighter, more youthful skin before you know it!

I have found this skin regime simple to follow and you can keep up with it even if you travel.  The bottle fits in your quart bag and is less than 3oz so it is even TSA Approved!

Nerium at the Emmy Awards

emmy award nerium adNerium is certainly rubbing shoulders with the stars.  Last Saturday September 14th , Nerium was a sponsor of the Emmy Awards Red Carpet Style Lounge event, honoring the nominees for the 65th annual awards.  The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards benefited the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, a very worthy cause.  To find out the Emmy Awards Winners watch the 65th Primetime Time Emmy Awards on September 22nd at 8 Eastern.

Huffington Post Votes Nerium the Best

Nerium International was voted Best Gift Lounge Suite at the Emmy Awards by the Huffington Post and was also featured in OK magazine.

Praise for Nerium

nerium ad

During the lavish invite-only event, celebrities including Sofia Milos (“CSI: Miami”), Patrick Kilpatrick (“Minority Report”), Constance Zimmer (“Entourage”, “House of Cards”, “The Newsroom”), Christina Robinson (“Dexter”), and Michael Madsen (“Reservoir Dogs”) learned about the benefits of NeriumAD Age Defying Treatment and its exclusive, patented NAE-8 extract.

The celebrities in attendance lavished praise on NeriumAD, saying: “The best thing is that it’s one product that addresses multiple concerns.” “It’s such a time saver to not have to have a system. I work all day long on set shooting, so simple  timesaver.” “I’m blown away by the before and after photos – 30 days or less!”

So what is Nerium Anyway?

NeriumAD is an Age-Defying Treatment which is a breakthrough product in the skin care industry. You may have also heard about the third-party clinical trials, which proved that NeriumAD dramatically reduces the appearance of:

• Fine lines andwrinkles
• Hyperpigmentation
• Uneven skin texture
• Enlarged pores
• Aging or sun-damaged skin

What you probably didn’t know was that NeriumAD is  a nature-based product with no harsh ingredients? As such, it’s also noncomedogenic and safe for all skin types. That’s because one of the main active ingredients in NeriumAD is NAE-8, a proprietary extract from the Nerium oleander plant. This beneficial extract in Nerium AD was accidentally discovered through biotechnology research, and was subsequently researched, tested, and used in our third-party clinical trials before being available to you now in the form of high-performance skincare.
