Paragons Retail, Sponsor and Duplicate

A “paragon” is defined as a model of excellence or perfection. The most successful Nikken Consultants live up to being paragons. To help Nikken Consultants advance and increase earnings, the Paragon Award was developed to motivate Consultants to sponsor new people and retail products, the two tried and true ways to advance in ranking and earn more income. Historically, the more effort Consultants exert, the faster they earn and the higher they progress in rank.

The Paragon Award is designed to help Nikken Consultants at the Silver and lower ranks advance to Gold. However, a Consultant at any level can achieve the Paragon Award by meeting the qualifications. To qualify, a Consultant needs to develop three or more new frontline Silver (or above) Consultants within a period of three consecutive months. In addition, awardees need to achieve a minimum of 18,000 Personal Group Point Volume. The prize is a choice of $1,000 US or a 60 inch 4K flat screen TV.

17760203_1306168902802498_4060209616865231453_nPlatinum Consultant Leo LeMay of the province of Quebec in Canada, achieved the Paragon Award and may soon go for another. He chose the $1,000 cash instead of the 60 inch flat screen TV because “when you go for the Paragon Award, you don’t have time to watch TV!”

For anyone taking on this extremely fruitful challenge, Leo gives some personal advice on how to succeed. He says, “I decided not just to try for the Paragon Award but to truly commit to attaining it. I believe in focusing on the decision to succeed and backing it up by taking consistent action every single day.

“Taking action means contacting new prospects, doing the ABC presentations* and coaching people by phone when possible. I committed to making five to seven new contacts each week as well as doing at least one and sometimes two or three presentations each week. These presentations were either an ABC* or a personal one-on-one meeting. By consistently doing these things, I was able to increase volume to meet the qualifications. I also did a lot of coaching by phone.

“To achieve the sponsorship requirements, I asked each of my first-level Consultants who were not yet at the rank of Silver whether they were ready to go for Silver. Réal Houle was the one who was committed, and I continued sponsoring to find two more. Whenever I sponsor new Consultants, I ask them if they are willing to commit to working towards Silver in three months or less. I also ask if they’ll commit to going for the Entrepreneurs Club at the same time. I’m happy to say that after all our hard work, my new frontline people are now independent and know how to retail and sponsor their own new Consultants.”

Congratulations to Leo LeMay for sharing Active Wellness and being a Nikken Paragon!

Les Parangons font des ventes au détail, parrainent et dupliquent

Un « Parangon » est défini comme un modèle d’excellence, de perfection. Les Consultants Nikken les plus talentueux vivent pour être des modèles. Pour aider les Consultants Nikken à avancer et augmenter leurs gains, la récompense Parangon a été créée pour amener les consultants à parrainer de nouveaux arrivants et faire la vente de produits au détail ; ces deux façons de procéder ont fait leur preuve dans l’avancement au rang supérieur et dans l’augmentation des gains. Historiquement, plus les Consultants s’investissent davantage et plus rapidement leurs gains augmentent et plus vite ils atteignent les rangs supérieurs.

La récompense Parangon est faite pour propulser les Consultants de niveau Argent vers le rang Or ou même plus. Cependant, un Consultant de n’importe quel rang peut obtenir la récompense Parangon en répondant aux conditions d’éligibilité. Pour se qualifier, un Consultant doit impérativement faire évoluer trois nouveaux Consultants, ou plus, au rang Argent (ou plus haut) dans une période de trois mois consécutifs. De plus, les lauréats doivent atteindre un minimum de 18 000 points de volume de groupe personnel. Le prix est au choix, soit une somme de 1000 US$ ou un écran plat 4K de 60 pouces.

17760203_1306168902802498_4060209616865231453_nLe Consultant Platine Leo Lemay, originaire du Québec au Canada, a reçu la récompense Parangon et devrait bientôt en recevoir une autre. Il a choisi le cash de 1000 US$ à la place de l’écran plat ! Pourquoi ? Voilà ce qu’il dit « quand vous obtenez la récompense Parangon, vous n’avez pas le temps de regarder la télévision ! »

A quiconque veut prendre exemple sur ce challenge superbement réussi, Léo donne des conseils de son expérience personnelle sur la façon de réussir. Il déclare « j’ai décidé non pas d’essayer seulement de gagner cette récompense, mais de m’engager à fond pour l’obtenir. Je pense qu’en m’engageant dans cette décision et en m’y tenant, j’ai pris chaque jour des décisions, j’ai dû agir de façon cohérente et ne jamais me relâcher. »

« Agir signifie contacter des nouveaux prospects, faire des présentations ABC*, parrainer des personnes par téléphone quand c’est possible. Je me suis engagé à obtenir de cinq jusqu’à sept nouveaux contacts toutes les semaines et aussi à procéder à deux ou trois présentations par semaine. Ces présentations se faisaient soit sur le modèle A-B-C soit sur des réunions personnelles en tête à tête. En faisant ces choses de façon cohérente, j’ai été capable d’augmenter mon volume d’affaires et ainsi me qualifier. J’ai fait aussi beaucoup de coaching par téléphone.

Pour atteindre les conditions de qualification, j’ai demandé à chacun de mes Consultants de premier niveau, qui n’avaient pas encore atteint le Rang Argent s’ils étaient prêts pour le rang Argent. Réal Houle était celui qui était engagé mais j’ai continué à parrainer pour en trouver deux autres. Quels que soient les Consultants que je sponsorise, je leur demande s’ils sont d’accord pour s’engager à travailler pour l’obtention du rang Argent et ce dans les trois mois ou moins. Je leur pose en même temps la question sur leur volonté à aller vers le Club des Entrepreneurs. Je suis content de pouvoir dire qu’après tout ce dur travail, ces nouvelles personnes de première ligne sont indépendantes et savent comment parrainer leurs nouveaux Consultants et faire des ventes au détail. »

Toutes nos félicitations à Leo Lemay pour son action dans la diffusion du « Bien Être actif » et sur son statut de lauréat Nikken avec la récompense Parangon !

Did You Know We’re Bioelectric and Need Grounding?

When we describe someone as “being grounded,” it means he or she is steadfast, centered and balanced. Grounded people are not “up in the air”; they are strong and focused, regardless of the chaos that may be around them. Their feet are planted on terra firma.

Being grounded is not just a metaphor. It’s a physical fact. Before civilization, homo sapiens actually lived on the ground: walking, sleeping and sitting all took place on the Earth itself with nothing in between—no furniture, no shoes. In other words, we were connected to the soil beneath our bare feet.

“Only recently has the knowledge and significance of this connection been explored and explained by scientific experts in geophysics, biophysics, electrical engineering, electrophysiology and medicine. From them, we are learning that the Earth’s electrical energy maintains the order of our own bodily frequencies. We all live and function electrically on an electrical planet. We are each of us a collection of dynamic electrical circuits in which trillions of cells constantly transmit and receive energy in the course of their programmed biochemical reactions. Your heart, brain, nervous system, muscles and immune system are prime examples of electrical subsystems operating within your bioelectrical body. The fact is, all of your movements, behaviors and actions are energized by electricity.”1

Most people are totally unaware of their bioelectrical nature or the energetic connection between their bodies and the earth’s surface. Many of us don’t even realize that we’re disconnected from Mother Nature. Our feet and the rest of our bodies rarely touch real ground. We keep insulated with layers of clothing, rubber soles, mattresses, any assortment of chairs and accessories.

Science informs us that the Earth’s electrons contain a natural, negative charge. Maintaining contact with the ground allows our bodies to naturally receive and become charged with these electrons. When we are “grounded,” we absorb these beneficial electrons that “reduce electrical imbalances in the body.”2 Since our bodies are composed of mostly water and minerals—just like the Earth—we are mutually electrically conductive.

Nikken created the KenkoGround™ to help us maintain our connection to the ground even when indoors. Devised to be plugged into a grounded outlet, the conductive fabric, when placed against our bare skin, duplicates the effect of direct contact with the Earth, our source of natural energies. Try the KenkoGround™ and you’ll see how Nikken has combined the best of science and nature to help us live our best Active Wellness lifestyle.

The KenkoGround™ is now included in the Energy Pack.

A Young Champion and his Nikken Products

Jack Turner is a young British athlete who has won an impressive number of awards. Jack became the English Schools under-17 2017 Octathlon champion when he won Gold in Boston, UK. He went on to represent England at the Schools International Athletics Board (SIAB) Home Internationals in Glasgow, Scotland where he won Silver for the indoor Pentathlon.

This year Jack won the under-18 British Standards decathlon competition, exceeding the European entry standard. This led to him being selected to represent Great Britain at the European Championships in Hungary, where he set a new British record. A few months later he went on to compete in his first under-20 Decathlon and achieved the gold medal and another national title. At the end of the 2018 outdoor season Jack is ranked 6th in Europe, 6th in the world for under-18 Decathlon and 4th in the UK for under-20s Decathlon. He’s aiming high for the championships next year!

A big fan of Nikken products, Jack uses them before, during and after competitions. He explains, “I found the KenkoTherm® Knee Wrap really supportive, especially since I hyperextended my knee last year long jumping. Wearing it helps me both physically and mentally. The tight yet comfortable fit meant that for a long period of time I could compete with it on.

“I found myself using the Kenko MagDuo® a lot. In preparation for the European Championships, I would use it on small muscles and joints for some release. I used the KenkoTouch® on my inflamed tendon, that I picked up during a decathlon, days before another competition. I used it at night just before I went to bed and felt that it really helped me to perform well the following day.

“I have a PiMag Waterfall® at home, so to be able to carry around PiMag filtered water in the PiMag® Sport Bottle when I compete was reassuring, especially when competing abroad.”

The young champion is clearly adhering to tried and true Active Wellness practices.

  • He keeps hydrated and drinks PiMag® alkaline water.
  • He keeps his muscles and tendons warm and supported with form fitting KenkoTherm wraps.
  • He takes advantage of patented DynaFlux® magnetic technology to massage himself with the handheld KenkoTouch® and the Kenko MagDuo®.

We look forward to hearing more about Jack Turner’s brilliant athletic accomplishments over the coming years!

Pointers on Nikken Reward Points

Have you seen the Fall Back to Basics incentive for the month of September? It’s designed to help Nikken Consultants earn money. If you’re a Nikken Consultant, you know that earning a Nikken income requires an Active Wellness lifestyle, sponsoring new people with the Nikken opportunity and producing personal and group sales volume. In September, the Fall Back to Basics incentive rewards sponsorship that produces Personal Point Volume (PPV) with Nikken Reward Points (NRPs). If you’re not a Nikken Consultant but sign up during September, you also can benefit from this incentive.

Currently active Nikken Consultants who produce a minimum of 100 PPV in September are eligible for the Fall Back to Basics incentive. By sponsoring a new Consultant who produces at least 500 PPV in September, current Consultants will earn Nikken Reward Points. The more PPV the newly sponsored Consultant produces during September, the more NRPs the sponsor earns. To top it off, when the new Consultant produces a minimum of 100 PPV and sponsors someone in September, he/she becomes eligible to participate to earn NRPs as well.

  • If the new Consultant produces 500 to 999 PPV, the sponsor earns 75 NRP.
  • If the new Consultant produces 1,000 to 1,999 PPV, the sponsor earns 150 NRP.
  • If the new Consultant produces 2,000 to 2,999 PPV, the sponsor earns 250 NRP.
  • If the new Consultant produces 3,000 or more PPV, the sponsor earns 350 NRP.

So what’s the big deal about Nikken Reward Points?

  • Think of them as cash. When you purchase products with them and re-sell those products, you earn 100% profit. (Usually you earn 20% when you retail product.)
  • Want to try new products? Use Nikken Reward Points and you won’t have depleted any extra money from your monthly budget.
  • Want some products to use as demos or loaners? Nikken Reward Points fill the bill.
  • Want to recognize your team members for their efforts with a gift of product? Nikken Reward Points come in handy to make that purchase.
  • Want to create your own group contests? Use products purchased with NRPs as prizes for contest winners.

In a nutshell, NRPs help Nikken Consultants build and replenish their business.

Everyone Can Use a Natural Energy Boost!

Energy is defined as the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity. In other words, energy is integral to what sustains us and gives us vitality. Everyone needs energy but many of us lack it.

Every time something gets warm, cools down, moves, grows, makes a sound or changes in any way, it uses energy. Science classifies energy into two categories –kinetic (moving) and potential (stored) energy.1 For example, the food a person eats contains chemical energy, and a person’s body stores this energy until he or she uses it as kinetic energy during work or play.2

Energy can change between potential and kinetic. Water at the top of a waterfall has stored potential energy but as the water begins to fall, it changes from potential to kinetic energy. When we create energy from hydropower, we harness the kinetic energy of the water for our own use. 1 Radiant energy is another type of kinetic energy that includes visible light, X-rays, electromagnetic energy and radio waves.

Nikken helps you boost your kinetic energy with advanced magnetic and ceramic reflective fiber technologies. The Energy Pack is composed of Kenko (Japanese for “health”) and KenkoTherm products that incorporate these technologies. The Energy Pack is essential to an Active Wellness lifestyle and is designed to support your maximum mobility and overall physical well-being.

The Energy Pack should appeal to people in all stages of activity: from the college athlete to the weekend warrior, from people who work on their feet all day to the recovering couch potato. Whether you’re a performance-driven competitor or simply need to help soothe muscular and joint discomfort, the Energy Pack contains just the right product sampling to keep you on the Active Wellness path.

Our Wellness Home Packs are the perfect way to sponsor new Nikken Consultants and are priced at 10% below our everyday low prices!

Don’t forget: Anyone who succeeded at the Summer Dash 500 is qualified to receive free shipping to the 48 contiguous states and Canada on the Energy Pack and any other Wellness Home Pack throughout the month of August, so this is the last week to take advantage of this great way to save. Stay tuned for what September has to offer!

Make Your Dreams Come True with Restful Sleep

Virtually everyone knows someone who is a chronic insomniac or suffers from erratic sleep patterns. Needing adequate sleep to function well is a known fact but the reality is that most adults and many children suffer from sleep deprivation. Insomnia can cause an average of 11.3 missed workdays and $2,280 in lost productivity per employee per year.1

Some people are so used to not getting enough sleep that they no longer pay attention to the risks of sleep deficiency. In fact, they may not realize that they’re sleep-deficient. Even with limited or poor-quality sleep, they may still think that they can function well. For example, drowsy drivers may feel capable of driving. Yet, studies show that sleep deficiency harms your driving ability as much as, or more than, being drunk. It’s estimated that driver sleepiness is a factor in about 100,000 car accidents each year, resulting in about 1,500 deaths.2

Drivers aren’t the only ones affected by sleep deficiency. It can affect people in all lines of work or study, including doctors, pilots, lawyers, mechanics and students. To add insult to injury, poor sleep can actually slow down metabolism, affecting weight gain and insulin levels.

Studies show that a good night’s sleep improves learning and problem-solving skills by helping you pay attention, make decisions and be creative. Studies also show that sleep deficiency alters activity in some parts of the brain that control emotions and behavior. Sleep deficiency has been linked to depression, suicide and risk-taking behavior.3

Aside from the self-discipline needed to adhere to regular bedtimes and to not succumb to sleeping in on non-work/non-school days, what you sleep on can make a huge difference in your pursuit of Active Wellness. Nikken touted the importance of sleep for years before it became a hot topic and continues to advocate for an advanced magnetic sleep experience. This month, the newly launched Wellness Home Sleep Pack helps you not only to sleep well and reap the health benefits but also to build a viable business when you share it, sell it and sponsor new people with it.

The Sleep Pack comes in a variety of sizes to fit your bed: Twin, Queen and King. You’ll be sleeping on patented DynaFlux® technology, and once you try it, you’ll want to stay with it forever. When you purchase any of the Sleep Packs, you save 10% off the price of purchasing each item separately.

Because the Wellness Home Packs come with such high PV (personal volume), they are ideal for promoting and selling to help you achieve monthly qualifications and rank advancement. For example, sponsoring one new Consultant with the Twin Dream Pack or selling one to a Customer, gives you 800 PV! Doing the same with a Queen Dream Pack gives you 1351 PV and with the King Dream Pack, 1545 PV. Click here for Sleep Pack details. 

Discounted prices with high PV! You’re not dreaming — Nikken wants to help make your business-building dreams come true.

Special during our Pack launch month: Anyone who succeeded at the Summer Dash is qualified to receive free shipping to the 48 contiguous states and Canada on the Sleep Packs and any other Wellness Home Pack throughout the month of August.
