Turn Black Friday and Nikken Cyberweek into Gold

There are many aspects of network marketing that are uniquely geared to help you make money. One important difference from regular sales is that you not only earn money when you sell a product, but you can also earn money on your purchases. This year Nikken gives Black Friday an added twist by creating a “cyberweek” that helps all our Consultants increase point volume as well as commissions. It’s the ideal time of year to role-model Active Wellness and look good doing it!

With our Black Friday sets, available only from November 23 through November 30, Nikken Consultants will receive at least 58% more and up to 71% more points and at least 38% more and up to 42% more leadership bonus (depending on the set).

Two Kenko Energy Sets each contain one KenkoGround, one KenkoTouch and either a small or large pair of mStrides. These two sets introduce three important technologies: Grounding, patented DynaFlux® magnetics and solenoid reciprocating massage.

  • The KenkoGround enables you to reconnect to the Earth’s natural surface charge and restore the natural electrical state in your physiology
  • Patented DynaFlux® technology combined with solenoid reciprocating massage imbues the KenkoTouch with pulsating magnetic wave therapy. Opposing magnetic fields with rotating and reciprocating massage mechanisms provide a personal shiatsu-like experience in three settings.
  • Patented DynaFlux® intensifies the magnetic field and provides 100% coverage in the Kenko mStrides. These insoles energize the feet. They are ventilated to help keep feet fresh and cool. Each pair supports up to 275 pounds.

Two Jewelry Sets each contain either a stainless steel or gold-plated Perfect Link II with a KenkoHeart pendant and a pair of KenkoHeart earrings—both hypoallergenic.

  • The stainless steel or gold-plated Perfect Link II necklace features 800-gauss neodymium magnets throughout their 18-inch lengths. Nickel-free and non-corrosive, these finely crafted necklaces are polished to a glossy finish and look perfect both day and night, with casual or formal wear.
  • The KenkoHeart pendant is stainless on one side and gold-plated on the other. It fits perfectly with either the stainless steel or gold-plated Perfect Link II necklace. Symbolizing the Heart of Nikken, the pendant is engineered with an 800-gauss neodymium magnet.
  • The KenkoHeart earrings are gold-plated. They match the pendant and feature 600-gauss neodymium magnets.

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.

Are You Grounded for Overall Well-Being?

Grounding is defined as “a process that helps your physical body to connect to life sustaining earth energies.”1 Feeling grounded is the opposite of being jittery, anxious and stressed out. Grounding is therefore an important aspect of Active Wellness. It is an effective way to help combat stress and pervasive EMFs, to help obtain regenerative sleep and to help maintain an overall equilibrium in daily life.*

The KenkoGround™ is a simple yet effective way to reconnect with Mother Nature. Direct contact with the ground (soil, grass, sand, ocean floor) gives our bodies natural energy, but what happens when we wear shoes all day or spend every minute indoors? The KenkoGround™ helps us make the connection to nature even when we’re working at the computer, sleeping in bed and while exercising or doing yoga.

What is the KenkoGround™? It’s an 18” x 36” feather light tripled layered fabric that is quilted together with silver ions. The 80% nylon and 20% silver fabric is conductive, and technology known as “vacuum sputtering” prolongs and strengthens the conductivity.

Silver is the best conductor of electricity because it contains a higher number of movable atoms; however, silver is more expensive than other materials and not normally used unless required for specialized equipment like satellites or circuit boards.2 At 20%, the KenkoGround™ has an unusually high amount of silver in the fabric, making it an outstanding creation.

Nikken ensures the high efficacy of the KenkoGround™ with exceptional materials, top quality construction and a water-resistant surface layer.

Super easy to use, all you need is a grounded outlet to plug into. You can place the KenkoGround™ under your bare feet, drape it over your shoulders or sleep on it. Direct contact is best, but even a small area of skin is enough for grounding.

Here is some feedback from our test group: “better sleep with no tossing and turning,” “more energy in the morning when it was hard to rise before,” “warmth in my usually cold feet,” “tingling sensation in my toes that go numb,” “feeling less jittery even when I have a lot of caffeine,” “calmness” and many other positive responses.

And, for three days only, October 23, 24 and 25, place a stand-alone order by phone for the Wellness Home Energy Pack and receive free ground shipping within the 48 contiguous states and Canada.

The Healthy Mind Pillar

Benjamin Franklin is attributed with saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” He originally was addressing fire safety, but today his axiom generally refers to health. In other words, it’s easier to prevent a health hazard than to repair damage that is already done.

October 10, 2018 is World Mental Health Day, and Ben Franklin’s words of wisdom come to mind. In order to prevent mental illness, it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms, then take immediate action to alleviate or prevent further distress.

Mental illness often begins in childhood or adolescence and goes unrecognized. The earlier treatment is begun, the more effective it can be to prevent the mental disorder from progressing into adulthood. Here are some warning signs that a child or teen might need help, as delineated by the National Institute of Mental Health1:

  • Often feels anxious or worried
  • Has very frequent tantrums or is intensely irritable much of the time
  • Has frequent stomachaches or headaches with no physical explanation
  • Is in constant motion, can’t sit quietly for any length of time
  • Has trouble sleeping, including frequent nightmares
  • Loses interest in things he or she used to enjoy
  • Avoids spending time with friends
  • Has trouble doing well in school, or grades decline
  • Fears gaining weight; exercises, diets obsessively
  • Has low or no energy
  • Has spells of intense, inexhaustible activity
  • Harms herself/himself, such as cutting or burning her/his skin
  • Engages in risky, destructive behavior
  • Harms self or others
  • Smokes, drinks, or uses drugs
  • Has thoughts of suicide
  • Thinks his or her mind is controlled or out of control, hears voices

Although the list of symptoms is similar for adults, here are some other signs to watch out for in particular, as noted by the Mayo Clinic2:

  • Feeling sad or down
  • Confused thinking or reduced ability to concentrate
  • Excessive fears or worries, or extreme feelings of guilt
  • Extreme mood changes of highs and lows
  • Withdrawal from friends and activities
  • Significant tiredness, low energy or problems sleeping
  • Detachment from reality (delusions), paranoia or hallucinations
  • Inability to cope with daily problems or stress
  • Trouble understanding and relating to situations and to people
  • Major changes in eating habits
  • Sex drive changes
  • Excessive anger, hostility or violence

Nikken nutritional supplements are of particular importance in supporting Active Wellness. There are two that specifically address the Healthy Mind Pillar.

  • Kenzen® Clarity is formulated with a fermented blend of 100% organic ingredients to help us stay focused and mentally sharp. Fermentation increases the levels of macro- and micro-nutrients while breaking down food that is difficult for the body to process.
  • Since the connection between brain function and gut health is critical for optimum results, Kenzen Lactoferrin™ 2.0 contains four organic ingredients that specifically support the G.I. tract as well as promoting brain health.

The Kenko Heart is the Heart of Nikken

Virtually everyone likes “cool and unique-looking” jewelry. But at Nikken, jewelry is never just about appearances. It’s about function, too. According to the BBC, the “global sale of therapeutic magnets is estimated to be at least $1 billion a year.” At Nikken, we appeal to both those who simply want attractive jewelry and those who want to improve how they feel.

Everyone reacts individually to different modalities. What works for one doesn’t apply to all. I can only tell you my personal experience with magnetic jewelry, and that applies specifically to the Kenko PowerBand®. I’ve worn the PowerBand necklace since Nikken first launched it in October 2010. Because I commute to work, I have chronic neck and shoulder pains from gripping the steering wheel and dodging drivers who appear to want my early demise. I don’t really care how or why the PowerBand works; all I know is that my neck and shoulders feel a lot more relaxed when I’m wearing it. I don’t overthink things; since it works, I keep wearing it.

Sharing with loved ones is the most natural behavior in the world, so I put the Kenko PowerBand around my husband’s neck and wrist. He’s one of those men who doesn’t wear any jewelry, but since 2010, he puts on his necklace and wristbands himself, without being prodded. I also put the PowerBand necklace around my then 11-year-old Chow/Labradors who proceeded to live to be 15 and nearly 17. (That’s really old for 65-pound dogs, for those who don’t know about canine lifespans.) They were headstrong boys who generally didn’t put up with anything on them for more than a few minutes but during all those years, they never tried to remove their PowerBands.

This is a roundabout introduction to our newest magnetic jewelry, the Kenko Heart Set. Pre-launched last weekend at the Active Wellness Preview hosted by Royal Ambassador Dave Johnson and Gold Consultant Mee-Jin Chong, the Kenko Heart Set is composed of a pendant and a pair of gold-tone earrings. The pendant is engineered with 800-gauss neodymium magnets and the earrings with 600-gauss. Because they’re made to Nikken specifications, they’re hypoallergenic, 316L stainless steel for durability, non-corrosive and nickel-free.

Those of you who already own the Kenko Perfect Link® II will find that the Kenko Heart pendant fits on it perfectly. The pendant is gold plated on one side and stainless steel-colored on the other, so you get a duo-tone piece with an etching of the Nikken logo. The earrings are gold plated and small enough to wear with multiple piercings.

When you wear the Kenko Heart Set, you’re really displaying your Nikken Heart. The Kenko Heart Set makes a wonderful gift and statement. It’s a gift from the heart and may well improve how you feel. Don’t overthink it. Just show people you care. As we approach the holiday season, make it easy on yourself and purchase ahead for the mothers, aunts, nieces and other deserving folks in your life.

Make the Decision to Succeed

Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “continuous improvement through positive change.” Recipients of the Team Kaizen award have the opportunity to experience an extraordinary leadership position within Nikken. 2018 Team Kaizen members had to create at least one Quality Enrollment every month of 2017 and develop four or more new frontline Silvers last year. Even though he qualified for Team Kaizen 2018, Royal Diamond Michael (Mike) DiMuccio continues to lead and sponsor new Consultants as he approaches 27 years with Nikken. Why? He set a goal to be a part of Team Kaizen 2019.

Explaining why he was so intent on qualifying for Team Kaizen, Mike says, “I wanted to prove to the Nikken Family, especially those following me, that even though I am at the Royal Diamond rank, often associated with ‘resting on our laurels’, that it could be done. The point was for me to remove all excuses and legitimate reasons for not getting it done. It was the consequence of making a decision.

“Enlist the support and direct involvement of your active upline and create a daily to-do list and calendar of events. Tell people why you are doing what you are doing with Nikken and invite them to help you do it – directly, or indirectly. Create Silvers. No one becomes Silver just because. It almost always requires a focused effort on the part of the Consultant and their sponsor. I asked newly sponsored Consultants to join me in the effort to achieve a Paragon Award and Team Kaizen.

“The majority of volume that we generated was from retail sales, which is a big plus in the new compensation plan. Of course, building a team is of a higher priority, but doesn’t hold back the potential for a Consultant to achieve Silver mainly on his or her own steam. Contact with my running mates, ABC meetings and calls were top on the list for daily activities. Asking for ‘help’ and referrals became the means to reaching into other people’s warm market.

“Everyone loves a deal, so extending product incentives to my Consultant’s prospects became a way to encourage immediate action—for instance, offering a pillow for a Sleep System, or a Sport Bottle for a Waterfall. Now with our Wellness Home Packs, we have a built-in incentive!”

On his way to becoming a 2019 Team Kaizen member, Mike says, “Setting a goal and achieving it is one of the most empowering feelings in the world. I’m staying on top of my 3000 PGV monthly, mainly with the same strategy as before. I personally am also taking advantage of the new Wellness Packs to have products to loan to prospects and to promote the built-in incentives.”

In summary, here are the five main actions required with the DiMuccio strategy to reach Team Kaizen:

  1. Make the decision to succeed.
  2. Ask your active upline for help and support.
  3. Create a daily to-do list and calendar of events.
  4. Sponsor new Consultants and create new Silvers to build a team.
  5. Generate retail sales to increase volume. Maintain 3000 PGV monthly.

Mike is hosting the following Active Wellness Previews, leading up to the Human Beings More Summit he and fellow Royal Diamond Bo Tanas are orchestrating in Toronto next month:

Commit to Your Goal No Matter What

Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “continuous improvement through positive change.” Recipients of the Team Kaizen award exemplify the meaning of the word and have the opportunity to experience an extraordinary leadership position within Nikken.

In their pursuit of Active Wellness, 2018 Team Kaizen members had to create at least one Quality Enrollment every month of 2017 and develop four or more new frontline Silvers last year. One person who achieved this milestone was Sherri Danzig. As a Team Kaizen member, earlier this year she was treated to a trip of a lifetime to Japan. Here’s what she says about her plans to achieve Team Kaizen again in 2019:

“To qualify for Team Kaizen, you have to do one thing. You have to make a committed decision to accomplish the goal, no matter what conspires to get in your way. Beyond that, it’s helpful to have a mentor, an accountability partner, a mastermind team or even all three—to help you develop a plan, to work your plan and to revise your plan as you go along your journey. Beyond doing the work, you must nurture your belief and vision by staying plugged into company and field events. Most importantly, you must believe in the big version of yourself, what I call the Big Stick Figure (BSF), the version of yourself that believes everything you know is possible!

“I am currently working with three partners who each wish to qualify for Team Kaizen. Two of them are at the rank of Silver, working towards Platinum, and one is brand new. I also plan to support six new Consultants to break Silver this year. Together we’ll expand our online marketing success. I read affirmations multiple times daily and am making plans with family to meet me in Italy at the conclusion of our Team Kaizen trip to continue traveling!

“I am honored to represent Nikken as a member of Team Kaizen. I’m honestly proud of myself for keeping to my commitment and working through some tough self-imposed barriers. I feel empowered to keep growing as a business leader and to stay on a personal development path that is unending. My desire is to step up and stop hiding, to be recognized and embrace being a leader. With that, I will strive to have a bigger voice to make a bigger impact!”

Here is Sherri’s three-step plan for herself and anyone else who wants to be on Team Kaizen:

  1. Step up recruiting activities. Set specific weekly goals for number of new contacts and 1-on-1 appointments.
  2. Begin tracking progress on a large chart. Start with the finish and work backward.
  3. Visualize success. Write and say out loud the goal of being on Team Kaizen every day. Set a calendar event on repeat to remind yourself to smile and visualize your goal multiple times every day!
