MEREDITH & DEREK FRANKLIN
This spunky, people-loving redhead sports locks of hair almost as fabulous as her irresistible personality. When she’s not busy getting a huge team of dedicated entrepreneurs to the next event, Meredith enjoys time crafting. The former hairstylist has found a new passion in helping others make money while having the ability to travel and spend more time with her husband, Derek and their two children.
Meredith recommends: “Restless,” by Jennie Allen
Sports fans beware, Derek probably has you beat when it comes to enthusiasm and dedication. From being a huge fan and participant in traditional, big-name sporting events to tackling outdoor and adventure sports like dirt biking, softball, fishing, and bow hunting, Derek is an outdoorsy, all-around good guy. His greatest passion is hanging out with his family while supporting a growing business centered on helping others.
Derek recommends: “Lead for God’s Sake,” by Todd G. Gongwer.
This Canada native embodies the ideal combination of leadership, authenticity, and contagious fun. While exploring the world of radio broadcasting, working as a flight attendant, and waitressing on the side, Kristie spent years trying to find a way to simply have the time to do what she wanted to do and help others along the way. The nature-loving, travel-obsessed wife and mother of two found that and more with network marketing and Isagenix, and she’s committed to showing others the path to their own time freedom.
Kristie recommends: “The Secret,” by Rhonda Byrne and “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari,” by Robin Sharma
Life by the beach with her partner, Alex and their two golden retrievers is great, but 26-year-old Georgie’s love for life doesn’t end there. Inspired by entrepreneurial parents, this former college softball player with a graduate degree in clinical exercise physiology stays more active than ever as she chases her dreams of helping people through life transformations with Isagenix.
Georgie recommends: “Living an Inspired Life,” by Wayne Dyer
GABRIELLE DEANE & GRANT PEARCE
Life on a dairy farm taught Gabrielle hard work and instilled in her a love for the land she calls home – New Zealand. Now, this outdoorsy Kiwi girl is dedicated to showing other young people how to improve their health and “make an incredible income” without having to move away from New Zealand to try to get ahead. Gabrielle is passionate about the environment and helping others create freedom in their lives. She builds her Isagenix business online through social media while helping her parents on the farm, traveling, kayaking, or climbing mountains with her partner Grant.
When searching for the perfect career, there can often be quite the variety of job ventures along the way, and Grant is no stranger to this. In fact, this warmhearted, adventurous Aussie experienced vastly different ends of the job spectrum from roof plumbing and personal training to massage therapy and working as a snake handler before finding his home with Isagenix. Now, Grant enjoys his days supporting a growing team alongside Gabrielle and their border collie Jenny.
Lynn grew up as only girl in a family with three brothers, giving her a strong, independent personality that has pushed her to pursue some not-so-common, yet exciting professions. As an animal lover, Lynn got a bachelor’s of honors in zoology and spent time training camels and working with animals. She later established two successful pole fitness studios in Australia before discovering her love for network marketing. Now, Lynn can visit her teammates and family around the globe.
Lynn recommends: “The Four Agreements,” by Don Miguel Ruiz
ADAM NESBITT & BIANCA BATHURST
A career as a helicopter pilot may be adventurous, yet for this thrill seeker, a fulfilling life is about so much more. Adam discovered that what “aligns with his passion for adventure and freedom” is network marketing with Isagenix and the belief that he and his partner, Bianca can provide anyone they meet a chance at changing their lives for the better. When this fun-loving surfer isn’t catching the next wave or taking time to explore his passion for personal development, he can be found travelling to the “many corners of the world” with Bianca and building a team of inspiring, like-minded people along the way.
Adam recommends: “The Secret,” by Rhonda Byrne
This go-getting bookworm and shopaholic spent six years chasing her dream career in law and business, but Bianca soon realized that this path didn’t fully align with her passion. So, when the opportunity with Isagenix presented itself, she knew she had to give it a try. Little did she know that decision would change every aspect of her life. She met and fell in love with Adam at an Isagenix Celebration and the young couple has spent every moment since empowering others to realize their full potential.
Bianca Recommends: “6 months to 6 figures,” by Peter Voogd
MARY & DANNY KRUGER
Mary always knew she wanted to make a positive impact in the world in some way. Coming from a close-knit family herself, she hoped to build a life of impact and freedom not only for her own family, but to extend that to others as well. She spent her early professional years “trying to find her place in the world” as she pursued social work and taught primary school. Now, this new mom has found that place, as she enjoy time with her baby girl while teaching others about a new way to dream.
Mary recommends: “Secrets of a Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker
An electrician by trade, Danny migrated from his home in the Netherlands to Australia in the pursuit of something new. He recognized the limited options for career advancement where he was, so he decided to start his own business. As fate would have it, Mary was also beginning her Isagenix business at the time and it didn’t take long for the young couple to see that its potential benefits were too good to pass up. With a strong team and a close family, this young couple now lives a promising life of choices with no limitations.
Danny recommends: “The Compound Effect,” by Darren Hardy
ELLIOT & LINDSEY SCHWARTZ
A perfect complement to his wife, Lindsey in both life and in business, Elliot balances sustaining their flourishing Isagenix team while working his job in medical sales. He and Lindsey are passionate about showing others what is possible in their lives, and their continued growth proves it. When they can catch a breath from building a business and training at events, this busy couple can be found hiking, golfing, watching movies, or relaxing at home with their rescue pup Ozzy.
Elliot recommends: “Secrets of a Millionaire Mind,” by T. Harv Eker
This O.G. START member began her Isagenix journey seven years ago. Lindsey, a fun-loving Arizona girl with a huge heart, had been working in commercial flooring sales when she chose to take a chance on a new opportunity with endless possibilities. Lindsey found success in network marketing and continues to discover new dreams and realize life goals like writing her own book. Working alongside her husband Elliot, Lindsey’s consistent, reliable leadership has helped the couple build a thriving team while enjoying time together along the way.
Lindsey recommends: “The Big Leap,” by Gay Hendricks
MACKENZIE BLANCHARD ARBALL
This outgoing blonde can be found talking with anyone about anything. She was running her own beauty business when her sweet, friendly demeanor caught the eye of an Isagenix leader, and the rest is history. She and her husband, JJ are always on the go, especially with JJ’s dedicated service as a pilot in the U.S. Navy. No matter where life takes her – which is hopefully near a beach –this 25-year-old stays focused on growing her leaders and keeping a sense of community within her team, while enjoying quality time spent with JJ and their “newest adventure buddy,” their pup Abby.
KRYSTAL WILSON & BRUCE DONNACHIE
After 12 months of researching the products, Krystal finally decided to give it a go, and soon after starting, she felt too amazing not to talk about her results. She realized that her part-time efforts to share her results in the few open moments of her busy day could amount to something more than her unfulfilling desk job, so she decided with “absolute certainty” that Isagenix would be the change she needed in her life. Now, the Canberra native looks forward to the day when she can return home to “spoil my mum and dad and help my family.”
“I hope my courage to be bold in this business inspires others to see that they to can challenge the status quo and go after their dreams NO MATTER WHAT!” – Krystal
Krystal recommends: “The Go Giver” and “Go-Givers Sell More,” by Bob Burg and John David Mann, and “Building an Empire,” by Brian Carruthers
Formerly in the insurance industry, Bruce always lived by his father’s motto, “Work hard and never give up on your dreams.” When this South African native joined Krystal in pursuit of a different kind of life, those dreams became closer to reality. He and Krystal decided to do less of what was “expected” and, as a unit, they now successfully support an entire team of entrepreneurs. When he’s not hitting the gym, the golf course, or Water Polo training, Bruce finds happiness in showing others how to “find their true potential.”
“I want to show others that there is another way and it’s amazing, if they just have the courage to say ‘yes’ and learn along the journey.”—Bruce
Bruce recommends: “The Four Agreements,” by Don Miguel Ruiz and Janet Mills, “Rich dad Poor Dad,” by Robert Kiyosaki, and “Money Master the Game,” by Tony Robbins.
For all of those who feel they work endless hours without ever truly getting ahead, this young Denver resident can certainly relate. Working 80-100 hours a week doing everything from bartending and running fitness boot camps to personal training and working as an in-office Nutritionist led Lauren to near burnout. She knew she was meant for something more, so with $17 to her name, she got into action and started sharing Isagenix with everyone she could. Now the travel-loving Broncos fan’s 10-year plan looks a lot different, and this natural leader found a place to let her skills shine with Isagenix and the START community.
“I believe we’re really unique in the way we want to impact the globe, even outside of our products or financial success. When you’re a part of START, it’s way more than making money, it’s about leadership, and it’s about involvement in the company, the environment, and the community. It’s a big deal!” –Lauren
Lauren recommends: “The Four Agreements,” by Don Miguel Ruiz and Janet Mills. “This book has impacted EVERY aspect of my life!”
After some initial hesitation, this glowing Aussie decided to test out the Isagenix products she had heard so much about from her friend, Anna. Ash had always been passionate about eating clean and treating her body well, but had still struggled to find that level of energy and vitality she knew she should be feeling, despite her conscious choices. So when she tried the program, she was excited with how amazing she felt and fell in love with the products. As a successful Osteopath, Ash wasn’t exactly hurting in the career area, but she had started to realize that her hours practicing were limited, and she could only do so much to help her patients. Ash had always had an overwhelming desire to be of service to others, so helping them take control of their health through nutrition became second-nature. Today, Ash is full-time with Isagenix and lives “to be a symbol of possibility for others.”
“Follow what lights you up and you’ll light up the world.” –Ash
Ash recommends: “Unwritten,” by Jack Delosa
This Oregon native wholeheartedly believes Isagenix found her. After graduating from Ohio State University with her doctorate in optometry, Lindsay went to work as an eye doctor while her husband, Cory, served in the Navy and now works as an Anesthesiologist. After having two beautiful young daughters, Lindsay wanted to be home more with her girls, but with a high student loan debt and the desire to contribute to the family income, that wasn’t always an option. In 2014, Lindsay began a new endeavor, and after a year of dedicating herself to working hard and growing others with Isagenix, Lindsay retired from routine practice to be home with her girls full-time. She now builds a life of “showing others what the freedom to fully give means.”
“Be brave in your life so others can be brave in theirs. It’s an incredible place to be, when your ‘Why’ becomes about others, not yourself.” –Lindsay
Lindsay recommends “Go Pro,” by Eric Worre, “The Go Giver,” by Bob Burg and John David Mann, and “How Successful People Think,” by John C. Maxwell.
It’s hard to imagine that this Romanian-born whirlwind of laughter, smiles, and spirit nearly accepted a life that left her “skills fading away just sitting in a chair.” At 23 she found herself mentally drained, out of shape, a university graduate with degrees in Journalism and Broadcasting, and far from achieving the dreams others said were “too far-fetched.” A chance opportunity for free personal training sessions wound up opening the door to a lifestyle she had all but considered impossible due to the “realities” and obligations of adulthood. Today, Mara is living proof that a positive and passion-filled life, with energy to Salsa dance around the room to spare, is not so “far-fetched.” It’s possible when you do things “a little bit different.”
“Start doing something different today, it’ll sure start giving you different results. It only takes that first step.” – Mara
Mara recommends: “Spirit Junkie,” by Gabrielle Bernstein
In 2014, Laura found herself overwhelmed, exhausted, and alone parenting her three young kids while her husband John, who was an active U.S. Marine, left for another tour of duty. With debt piling on and responsibly weighing heavy on her shoulders, she decided to “stop making excuses” and finally “dream big for the first time.” She committed to changing her life physically, which turned in to so much more through the support of her Isagenix team, Team Anchored. Through her months of work, John returned to an entirely different home than before he deployed; a home bustling with energy, fulfillment, and freedom. Today, Laura and John spend their days with the kids, travel on the weekends, and can’t help but share the Isagenix vision in every way they can.
“Never settle and never stop dreaming.” – Laura
Laura recommends: “The Go-Giver,” by Bob Burg and John David Mann
As a self-admitted CrossFit addict and trainer, Jackson has committed to help people take control of their health. Armed with an Academic All-American degree in Exercise Science and Nutrition, Jackson shares his knowledge to help people take their lives back by force. You can catch this tatted-up Aussie riding his Harley on the way to a charity event or volunteering because he lives by the motto, “If it makes you happy, then do it.” Today, he helps thousands of young people take control of their lives and find the free time to do whatever makes them happy. “I love waking up every morning knowing I’m not wasting my life doing something I’m not passionate about while also having a positive impact on the world.”
“You are a collection of the choices you make. Each situation in your life is a chance to choose something better for yourself.” – Jackson
Jackson recommends: “The Kick Ass Life” podcast with David Wood, “The Four Agreements,” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and attending training events.
ROSS & DANIELLE THOMPSON
Danielle wears many hats and she pulls them all off flawlessly. She shifts between her roles as a mother of two little boys, a wife, an Isagenix business owner, a fitness training gym co-owner, a personal trainer, and a START Ambassador. This woman can do it all. One key reason is her attitude of positivity to “create a life that promotes hard work together, not apart.” Danielle strives to “enable people to live their dreams while simultaneously servicing others,” and does so with no agenda, but most likely while wearing workout gear. “I have permanent butterflies in my stomach because of what START and its incredible, caring members do to change the world – I’m proud to be an Ambassador.”
“Always focus on being the person you want to be, because if you want to live a happy life, you have to be a happy person.” – Danielle
Danielle recommends: “The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution,” by Walter Isaacson, and “Yes Please,” by Amy Poehler.
START Ambassador Ross gets out of bed every day to “get people moving.” As a proud husband, father of two boys, and Training Ground gym owner and trainer, there is no doubt Ross gets people moving. Outside the gym he and his wife, Danielle, co-founded, he is outdoors completing ultramarathons, backpacking, and hunting. Ross is the happiest he’s ever been, so much so that he admits, “I laugh in my sleep, so I’m told.” He isn’t just happy because he is leading a life by his own design, he is happy to the core because he gets to spend his life “making other people’s lives great.”
“To discover your purpose is to discover your path to freedom.” – Ross
Ross recommends: “Die Empty: Unleash Your Best Work Every Day,” by Todd Henry and Amplified Network Marketing podcasts.
ZACH & EDEN SLOBIN
This prolific public speaker is proud to be “one of the crazy ones.” Zach says, “Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world often times are the ones who do.” Like a true entrepreneur, Zach grew up with the mindset, “I don’t know what my career will be. I just know I want to do a lot of things at once.” Zach explored several career paths before eventually “failing his way to success.” He struggled a ton, failed a lot, succeeded just to lose it all, but with continued effort Zach has found his calling. He is proud to be a START Ambassador because, “there’s nothing more rewarding than an opportunity to truly shine, give back, and make an impact.”
“The moment you stop believing the lies and start believing in yourself, that’s when you’ll be successful.” – Zach
Zach recommends: “Loving What Is,” by Byron Katie, “Ask and It Is Given,” by Esther and Jerry Hicks, and “The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself,” by Michael A. Singer.
This START Ambassador is beautiful, brave, strong, and a warm human being. Eden left home at 18 to hustle her way into her dream job – a dream job at the top of the corporate ladder she walked away from seven years later to forge her own path in network marketing. A true risk-taker, Eden’s courage has paid off. Eden, Zach, and their adventure-dog, George, travel the world hiking new trails, basking in the sun in Bali, volunteering and giving back to the less-fortunate. Zach and Eden are proud to lead those hungry for the secret to physical, financial, and time freedom as START Ambassadors.
“Sometimes taking a leap of faith is exactly what your success depends on.” – Eden
Eden recommends: “Thoughts Without a Thinker,” by Mark Epstein and “Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us,” by Daniel H. Pink.
Well before she committed to helping lead the START movement, Ciji had refused to live life according to the status quo. She has always lived by the philosophy that “we’re only allotted a certain number of good hair days in our lifetime.” So, why waste them? Along with a particularly serious distaste for alarm clocks, she has spent her life in search of a better way to spend her precious good hair days in pursuit of her own passions rather than the corner office. Now, this powerhouse spends her days “igniting the fire” in others to “own every aspect of their lives” through the START Your Life Movement.
“Learn to be unoffendable. Listen to the ones who come from a place of respect and become immune to those who come from a place of resentment.” – Ciji
Ciji recommends: “The Success Principles,” by Jack Canfield and “The Tipping Point,” by Malcolm Gladwell.
ANNA & MORGAN RICHARDS
Morgan functions day-in and day-out under the thought that he will look back one day and be able to say that he “didn’t just talk about impacting the world,” but he “actually went out and did it.” He and his wife, Anna, embody this philosophy by “living life with no boundaries both physically and financially.” When the couple isn’t traveling or he isn’t watching sports with his buddies, Morgan hits the beach or the gym for F45 functional training and martial arts training. Morgan is proud to be a START Ambassador “to empower thousands of young people to challenge the status quo of how to live life in the 21st century.”
“Close your eyes and imagine living each day the way you want to live. Now, open your eyes and START making that vision your reality.” – Morgan
Morgan recommends: “The Leader Who Had No Title,” by Robin Sharma and motivational videos and podcasts from Amplified Network Marketing.
Anna is a spunky, warm Aussie with tons of energy. This “citizen of the world” loves to travel with her husband, preferably to locations with large bodies of water where she indulges in her writing, catches up on her reading, and practices yoga – lots and lots of yoga. Anna’s positivity and inherent love for other people comes from her number one role model, her mum who instilled the motto “always choose love.” Anna leads as a START Ambassador because she says, “everyone shows up with a heart of service, and united together, the Movement becomes a force for love and contribution.”
“Build your legacy by helping others discover theirs.” – Anna
Anna recommends: “Gandhi an Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth” and “A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose,” by Eckhart Tolle.
JAMES & AUDRYE MCLEOD
You will probably not meet many person on the planet with more energy than this All-American girl, Audrye. She enjoys traveling the world and rocks a lush, exotic island tan to perfectly complement her southern girl hair. “I love to dance no matter where I am, try to ride kangas, and enjoy a really good, mouthwatering steak,” but more than anything, Audrye loves “showing an entire generation that it is possible to live an extraordinary life while having as much fun as possible.” She is proud to be part of the START movement because of the impact it is having on the world. In her words, “it’s one that will leave a lasting legacy.”
“God put gifts and talents inside of you that no one else in the world has. You are meant to live your life free. You are meant to shine into the fullness of who you are.” – Audrye
Audrye recommends: “Anything, absolutely anything by Zach or Eden Slobin,” and any and all business or motivational podcasts you can get your ears on.
This Tennessee resident always had a love of people and a passion for making a difference in our world. James was determined to pursue a life where he could be his own boss and do things on his own terms. As a START Ambassador, James does just that as he dedicates his time and energy to helping others achieve their dreams. When he isn’t jet-setting alongside his beautiful wife, Audrye, James finds his escape and sanctuary riding his motorcycle or taking to the outdoors. He loves being a part of the START movement because “everyone is so willing to help others. There’s this spirit of empowerment that starts to rise up in you once you get to be a part of it, and it’s so ridiculously contagious.”
“The best advice I’ve received would be that there is nothing more valuable than relationships. To achieve your dream in life, go out and help as many other people get what they want and inevitably, you will have what you want.” – James
James recommends: “Go Pro” by Eric Worre, “The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann, Isagenix podcasts, and IsagenixBusiness.com.
Although Journey is originally a North Bay girl, she lives up to her name and rolls with the punches. When it comes to her adventurous spirit, she is all about making the most of her journey. This thrill-seeker enjoys getting her adrenaline pumping by skydiving, rock climbing, windsurfing, and water skiing. Also a published author and motivational speaker, Journey is hungry to expand her personal growth. “Learning from, and living with people from different cultures excites me,” she says, “I love that I can go anywhere in the world and share the gift of health and financial freedom.” As a START Ambassador, she leads with one simple principle: “When we leave this world, we can’t take material things with us, but we can make an everlasting impression on those we meet along the way.”
“Someone once told me, ‘it’s easy to make a buck, but tougher to make a difference.’ I realized both are achievable in massive ways.” – Journey
Journey recommends: David T.S. Wood’s “Amplified Network Marketing” podcasts, motivational events, and “Go Pro,” by Eric Worre.
