My name is Ian Herculson. Call me Herc, most of my friends do.
I’m super excited to be writing this because I know if you are reading it, that means you are thinking of taking your own 90 Day Challenge.
Well if it helps, the following is my true story of how it came to be that I found out about Body By Vi, how I got involved, and what has happened from then until now!
It’s been a great ride I’ll say right now, so please read my story, and if you want, leave me a comment!
If you wanna skip the boring details of my life, and just see what my results have been, then click the link below!
So here goes….
Back in the summer months of 2011, probably around June or July, I was at work bartending and an old college buddy of mine who I hadn’t seen in a while came in and we got to talkin. His name was Tom F.
Tom has always known me to be an open minded guy and he asked me if I’d be interested in taking a look at a new business he was in. Body By Vi. He explained to me that it was a 90 Day Health Challenge, and he was drinking 2 shakes a day and feeling great etc. He was already in good shape already tho, but I listened.
He went on to quickly tell me that many people in the Edmonton area were getting BMW’s for helping other people get on their own challenge, and that I could probably easily get a BMW too and I should check it out.
Well I am an open minded guy, but to be honest, I had just lost $500 in ACN (that kick ass telephone MLM that wasn’t so kick ass), lost a ton of time and effort in Amway (they’re selling the dream, not the results guys), and everyone was kicking my door down for FHTM or that Goji berry Monavie. No thanks…I’m done with MLM for a bit. The weight loss maybe sounds good, but it’s probably another crappy MLM product. So forget it.
To be fully honest, that’s what I did. I forgot about it…on purpose. I never ended up checking out Tom’s website and I eventually apologized to him and said, “I dont’ want to waste your time dude. I’m really not into it.”
I didn’t even LOOK at it. What an IDIOT!!!
(Or maybe things happen just how they are supposed to!)
So fast forward a few months, and my situation is a bit different. It’s very late in October 2011 and I’m feeling pretty fat. I had plans to start doing Insanity 60 Day Challenge with my girlfriend Tenille even. We were watching Insanity infomercials a lot.
(That guy is awesome!)
So I’m on Facebook one night and I see another college friend of mine Krista LV, who also went to the same college as Tom and I. She was posting pictures on her website of her leaning over her new BMW x3 she just got for promoting Body By Vi and that she had lost 18 pounds. What!?!?!
I texted her right away, and said “Man, how’d you get a BMW for promoting that, I haven’t even seen a single Facebook post until now!” She told me her story about how she joined and in 28 days qualifed for the Bimmer Club. (Getting a free BMW)
Ok my first encounter with Body By Vi was my buddy telling me about it. My second encounter was someone showing success with it, financially and physically. But I STILL wasn’t ready to hop on. More needed to happen.
I called Krista and asked for details and she gave me her website address to check it out, but this time, I actually checked out the site. And !!WHAM!! I was in. I didn’t sign up right away, but emotionally, I was already searching for answers to support the fact that I was going to sign up to what I saw.
I saw PURE OPPORTUNITY in a couple different ways!
I thought back 2 days earlier to a private back-bar party that was being held at the Pint where I work. I was bartending that night, and some guys BMW got smashed into by a drunk driver, while he was inside celebrating a blossoming new life! My bar-boss new him, Kevin W was his name. I remember thinking to myself, ‘wow what a lucky guy, his BMW gets smashed, and he’s in such a good situation he probably doesn’t overly care!’
Right away I noticed that Krista Lee was friends with Kevin W on Facebook, and I checked out his profile page and he was holding a $25,000 check made out in HIS NAME. And guess what else it said?
TO: Kevin W & Mel V.
FROM: Visalus Sciences
….or what I would quickly come to know as Body By Vi!
Within 24 hours of that mental connection, I signed up as a promoter under Krista L and started telling my girlfriend Tenille how seriously GOOD of an opportunity I was seeing here. I mean, making money promoting a health challenge (something I needed anyways at the moment) sounded perfect! The right time, the right place. Everyone is fat! Sorry fat people…you know you’re a little on the plump side
So I easily got Tenille involved as well. She signed up as a promoter right under me!
And that was the start of it. That was Night 1. Nov 2nd, 2011.
At the time of writing this particular blog post, it’s been about 60 days and a lot has happened. If you want, read on to see my Body By Vi Results. (both fit wise and financial wise)
