Certain women dance
Merrily into your life
And you pray ‘THANK YOU!’
Last weekend I had the huge pleasure of interviewing women whom I love and respect as friends, mentors and family. Whoever said you can’t mix business with pleasure, certainly never met us!
And whoever warned against doing business with family never met THIS family!
Three generations of Northrup women have been a powerful influence in every area of my life – including, but not limited to our USANA business. I treasure them like crazy, and my heart is so full after spending time with them last weekend that I want to share the love with you.
Any time I have a chance to listen to Edna Northrup’s life stories, I grab it. Her motto in life is “NO LIMITS” – and she embodies that motto! Just watch this 3 minute video and you’ll be blessed with her amazing energy and zest for life. It’s the next best thing to being with her in person.
Women’s health pioneer and best-selling author, Dr. Christiane Northrup needs no introduction. She continues to challenge the status quo and expand the possibilities for women to be fully empowered. She sees her job as a doctor to help women learn everything that can go RIGHT with their bodies….not someone who looks for what’s wrong.
This is one of my favorite interviews with Dr. Northrup. It will change your perception of aging and open up a whole new level of possibility for what it means to be ageless!
You may not be familiar with Dr. Northrup’s sister, Penny. Penny was a member of the United States Ski Team from 1968-1972 competing on the world cup tour. She’s the mother of 3 grown guys and a very successful USANA business owner. My nickname for Penny is “Switzerland.” She has the ability to rise above any conflict, take the 30,000 foot view and then offer the most grounded, practical, spiritual solution. I don’t have a video of Penny, so I’ll share one of the best pieces of advice she gave me: I was stressing about a conversation I’d had with a potential business associate…beating myself up because I felt I hadn’t been well prepared for the conversation, and Penny said:
“You can’t say the right thing to the wrong person, or the wrong thing to the right person.”
Phew! Instant relief! I’ve clung to those words on many occasions and they have served me well. I hope they serve you, too.
The Next Generation
Kate Northrup is, and always has been, a creative entrepreneur. She started her business with USANA Health Sciences at the age of 18 and has been taking the world by storm ever since! The biggest thing I’ve learned from Kate is to BE YOURSELF. When she started her online journal in 2010, it was just that: an online journal. She wasn’t intentionally trying to create a persona in order to monetize her journal, she simply felt compelled to share her life. And that authentic, bold action turned into a blog that is the basis of a high 6 figure business.
