When I was 18, I found myself wondering what I would do for a career. The
concept of building a business from home and having a residual income was
compelling. So, I joined an MLM company. Unfortunately, my hard work with
that company only created heartache and pain for me and for my friends as
well. At age 21 I found myself deeply in debt, with no college education,
and no source of income. At the time my life was stressful and uncertain;
my future looked bleak. Then I got together with three close friends, who
had all had frustrating experiences with MLM "businesses." We were broke
in many ways. Although we were skeptical, we were hopeful that we could find
a business that really worked. We created a wish list of qualities that a
successful company would need to succeed. After a lengthy search, we found the right company!
Today, life is very different. I have a successful home-based business that
operates on four continents and in eight countries. This business has provided
me with a RELIABLE income for the past 14 years! My three children and I are
able to enjoy quality time together, as we snowboard, ride horses, and travel
the world. One of the most gratifying aspects of my business is being able to
help other people enhance their lives. If you're ready, I believe that the AdvancingWithUs team and our exclusive marketing systems can help you enhance
your life too.

Six years ago we were working very, very hard. As a general surgeon,
Skip was putting in 14-16 hour days, not including night calls. Marcia
was managing the office and working on her writing career. To make
matters more challenging the possibility of retirement seemed harder
As successful professionals we were skeptical about opportunities that
had been presented to us. However, when Alan Pariser explained this
business to us, we realized that this would be our second career. We
became involved in a wonderful business, and life has become very
rewarding. Within two years we replaced the income from surgery, closed
our practice of 30 years, and created a lifestyle most people only dream
about. This is particularly rewarding for Skip because he is able to
continue being of service to people by assisting them in achieving optimal
nutrition and converting their homes into healthier, safer environments.
This business has also generated the time freedom for both of us to pursue
some of our life-long interests. Skip has plenty of
time to travel the world as a volunteer surgeon, as well as to satisfy his creative interest in photography.
And Marcia has finished her fourth novel!
As upper-level executives in this wonderful business, we are able to reap
great rewards by helping others create freedom from the constant stress
associated with worrying about money. We start many on the path to financial
security. So many of our friends and associates now share our good fortune
because they were able to start part-time business and explore a new way of
In addition this business has enabled us to have a constant presence in our
children's lives even though they live far from us. We are able to enjoy
quality family time with our daughter and her family who live in Georgia.
Skip is able to enjoy watching our son build his medical career as we travel
to Boston and visit with him frequently. We feel fortunate to be building a
business that will not only last a lifetime, but continue to bring prosperity
to our children and grandchildren.

At age 37 my wife Nancy and I were what most would have considered successful. Nancy had her MBA and I had developed a successful brokerage and pension planning practice. We were happy with what we were doing and we were not looking for a change.
As fate would have it, a persistent young man (who had just turned 21 years old, and is the founder of the AdvancingWithUs team) introduced us to this business. We did not let our egos get in the way. We already experienced what a six-figure residual income was like with our other business, and we had a great lifestyle. But a good idea is a good idea, and we knew that this was a good idea. We asked ourselves, "why not?" The stability of this company and the consistency of the reorder rate convinced us that this could be as reliable as our pension business, but more profitable.
Our problem was time. My practice already took up 50 hours per week. Our children, their schools, sports, and social commitments took another 15 to 20 hours of our time every week. Any busy parent knows the drill. I remember saying to Alan "where am I going to find the time?" Then, I said to myself "if I could find the time to play golf, if I could find the time to coach, then I could find the time to do this." Nancy and I simply stole some time from other areas of our life.
And it was worth it. Amazingly, in 18 months with this company, we duplicated the renewal income that took us ten years to develop in the pension business. Over the last 14 years, I have been able to maintain and even enhance my pension practice, AND enjoy a partnership with my wife as we have built this home-business together. As our children leave our home and begin their adult lives we are excited to know that we will be able to take our business to new levels. Most importantly, we have been able to build a business that we know will be our legacy for our children.

In 1995, we moved to California from our home state of Rhode Island to pursue a TV sitcom based on our unique commodity-we are identical triplets!
We began to enjoy a successful career in the entertainment industry. We starred in a major motion picture, Major League III - Back to the Minors; we appeared in syndicated television programs such as Step by Step, Boy Meets World, Power Rangers and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, just to name a few. However, we learned from those that had spent a lifetime in the entertainment industry, that even though there were big paychecks to be had, those checks could be few and far between. As the income and politics of this industry created uncertainty for us, we began to look for an income that could be RELIABLE and a business that would be without stress and turmoil.
That is exactly what we found, when an AdvancingWithUs team member approached us. We started our business a little more than four years ago. We can now go on 5 vacations a year. We love helping others achieve their goals.
This business has changed our lives. We have gone from worrying about our next project, to living a stress free life. We have created many relationships that are precious to us. In fact Ted, met his lovely wife, Marine in this business, and recently they gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. This business has also allowed Tim to be a stay at home father and enjoy a fulfilling family life with Sarra and their children Andreas and Athena. Tom has been able spend the time necessary to make one of his lifelong dreams a possibility-playing professional golf. We have an awesome lifestyle, because we have control over our lives, income, and work schedule. Our success would not have been possible without the awesome system we have in place with the AdvancingWithUs team. We are so fortunate to be working with the number one person in the company, Alan Pariser. He is a great mentor and a friend. He has taught us how to keep this business simple enough so anyone can become successful. We invite you to join our team and start living the life you deserve.

I was in the corporate world for 13 years, achieved the position of Executive Vice President, and enjoyed incredible financial success. But success in the corporate world came to me with a price. I lost my jobs three times due to reorganizations, mergers, and acquisitions. The pressures were so great that I lost my health and was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. For a long period of time I would literally pass out from my job related stress. Among other things, frequently I would have to take naps in the afternoon just to make it through the day.
I began to look for a new way to make a living that would create balance and harmony in my life. I knew I needed to start my own business but I didn't have the money to start a traditional business. So I got involved with Multi-Level-Marketing and made a focused effort to succeed with three different companies. None of them worked.
A few years ago I was introduced to this business from an AdvancingWithUs team member. Even though it was difficult, I did not let my past experiences prevent me from getting the facts. I was happy to find that this was NOT another MLM. I began this business because it just made sound business sense.

Twelve years ago Gary was working as a waiter, living in Hollywood, CA, and pursuing an acting career. Initially, he became a customer of our company, and dabbled in the business. In those early years, Gary did not put much energy into the business. About a year later, while dating Gretchen, he introduced her to the products. Gretchen's "day job" was an executive assistant for a health care company, and she was also pursuing acting and writing.
At that time we both faced the growing reality of our lives. For Gary it was never having the time to pursue his acting career, as he was tied down to working in the restaurant industry. For Gretchen, she needed to pay off some credit card debt; it seemed that she could never get ahead. So we began to work at our business on a part time basis. After a corporate merger, Gretchen got laid off from her job with the health care company. Faced with job uncertainty, the glass ceiling, and dissatisfaction with the corporate world, we realized that we needed a business that we could control. Our meager business became our sole focus. Our modest income up to that point had been very reliable-the checks kept coming and growing. Even though we had no previous business experience in the home-business arena, we knew we could make those checks larger and change our lives by simply making more of a time investment.
Today, Gary is "retired" from the restaurant industry, and Gretchen never went back to corporate America. We both get to work from home and generate a very reliable income. We are a relatively young couple and feel so fortunate to have created such an easy lifestyle at our age-something we've seen others take decades to do. Every day both of us acknowledge what a great life we have because of this business!

My name is Lucy Accardo and I have been with the AdvancingWithUs Team for over 2 ½ years. In corporate America my husband and I earned excellent incomes in the technical arena; however, we were away from home and our children for 12 hours per day. It was horrible.
Then, I was laid off in 2001. It was a blessing in disguise. I decided to look into a way to stay home with my 3 children who were still in diapers. I had a few things that I specifically KNEW I would NOT do, and those included selling products to my friends, maintaining an inventory of ANY type or collecting money and calculating costs.
After allot of research, I found the AdvancingWithUs Team. Everything that I was looking for was here. I was provided with training at no cost, a free web site with an amazing Members Area, and so much more. I met amazing people along the way, and became a leader of the team. The best part was that there was no pressure.
For the past 2 ½ years, the AdvancingWithUs Team has allowed me to stay home with my children. I just had another baby girl. We now have 4 children under the age of 6. I don't have a boss, don't have to call in sick if I don't feel well and don't have to worry about dress code, (I can work in my pajamas and fuzz slippers if I want too!) Being home around the most important things in OUR LIVES is what this team is all about.

I worked for a large corporation for 7 years and then I got laid off due to downsizing. From that day forward, I vowed that I would never be at the mercy of anyone for a pay check. I knew that I need to be in charge of my own destiny and financially independent. So I tried working for a 'party plan' business. I worked hard in that business for 7 years and became one of their top sales leaders. However, I was working long hours. Even though I was in business for myself, I was still trading hours for dollars. I wanted something different - something that would pay me a residual income.
Today, my search is over. Advancing With Us has allowed me to team up with people all over North America and create an income stream that meets my needs. This is so rewarding and exciting to be networking with a group of individuals that have united together to help each other reach our goals through training, support and teamwork.
This business has introduced me to more than just my business partners; I even met my husband through this business!! Frank works full-time at the Boston Courthouse and is a National Guard for the Military. Together, we share the same dreams and goals that we make a great team together in marriage and in business.
If you are looking for a home-based business, that is truly risk-free and you have the determination and the desire to succeed, then Advancing With Us is the right place to be!!

Karen was a single mom climbing the corporate ladder for 14 years and Mark had a successful 30 year sales career. We met while attending graduate school (at the Kentucky Derby!). Together, we have 5 great kids.
A while ago we opened three franchise restaurants - invested Mark's retirement funds, worked all the time, had no time for family or each other, and were just plain miserable.
Then we were introduced to a business that made so much sense -without the negatives that the restaurant business had - no large investment or financial risk, no employees or overhead, no inventory, no complicated paperwork, and no working 365 days of the year.
We found a company with history of year after year growth and an honest management team that was commited to making this be a Business to Last a Lifetime. Working for a company without the fear of downsizing, rightsizing, or layoffs was also important.
As a part of AdvancingWithUs, we take Team Spirit and Commitment to Success very seriously. On a part time basis, we have reached many of our goals, including paying off thousands in debt from the restaurants and school. We recently built a new home on a lake where love to have our coffee on the boat in the morning and fish with our kids and grandkids.
We found a company with true residual income. Our mission to enhance lives and our AdvancingWithUs team and system can help you find your success. It could change your life like it has ours!

Several years ago my friend told me about an awesome company. At the time, I was a busy mother of two young children. I also had a private practice in psychology and was teaching at the medical school here in Denver. I was not looking for a business. I wanted to have a safe and healthy home. This company's wellness products offered a way.
By exclusively using these products, my daughter's asthma symptoms went away. My son no longer needed constant antibiotics as his chronic sinusitis disappeared.
I began to see the incredible financial opportunity offered here, a way to create the life of my dreams. I loved the integrity and high standards in this company. Eventually, I gave up the practice of psychology and my job teaching at the medical school.
Today, I work with the AdvancingWithUs team from home, enjoying a great income and the time flexibility to do what is most important to me. Because of this company, I get to be the kind of mother I always wanted to be: one who is always there for her family! I know that I am building a business to last a lifetime and that my kids will inherit the great business I am creating. I am so grateful!

My husband and I had always dreamed of the life we wanted for ourselves and our children but had not been able to find a way to make those dreams come true.
13 years ago, when our first of 5 children was born, I really wanted to be a stay at home mom and started looking at different home based businesses to make this dream a reality. Over the next 9 years, I spent a lot of time, energy and money pursuing various businesses. We worked really hard and did everything we were told to do but still didn't see the financial or personal freedom we were striving for.
Three years ago, we received a phone call telling us about an incredible company. Lyle, who is an engineer with an MBA, was very skeptical but we decided we wanted to hear about it. We were intrigued by the idea of a company that required no investment and no inventory; a company that didn't require selling products or delivering items.
Seven months after we started our business I was able to fulfill my desire of being a stay at home mom. Two years after we started working our business, we had replaced Lyle's income and he was able to quit his job and be a stay at home dad. We are also excited to finally have the finances and time to be able to fulfill another lifelong dream of adopting a son from Ethiopia. (We will be flying over to Ethiopia sometime in 2006 to bring home our new son!!!)
We couldn't believe that in such a short time we were able to build a reliable income and see our dreams and goals come to fruition. It has now been 3 years that we have been working our business and partnering with the AdvancingWithUs team. We continue to work our business together but we also continue to dream of the many ways this business will continue to change not only our lives, but the lives of the many people we work with.

Nine years ago I knew my life needed a change. I was teaching fulltime and singing 6 nights a week with the band my husband and I started. We were ready to start a family, but we were always strapped for time and were concerned about having enough money. In addition, two of my teaching associates and I were experiencing health issues, while at the same time noticing how our students' learning and health seemed to be affected by chemicals in the home and school. We did a great deal of research about the problem of toxins in the home, the school and the work place. We began providing seminars as a community service to make people more aware of this problem.
We had found the solution for our health, our student's health and our desire for a career change all with this one awesome company!
Since then, my husband, Patrick, and I have adopted two beautiful children from Vietnam. Samantha is 6 now and Nicholas is 4 ½. As a result of our income with this business, I have been able to quit my job as a teacher, and I only sing on special occasions. Now I work from home so I can be a fulltime mom. We are also able to monetarily assist our children's birth families as well as orphanages in Vietnam. The flexibility it gives me to work around my children and yet help others be successful and healthy, is a dream-like situation.
The AdvancingWithUs team and website have taken my business to the next level. I cannot be prouder than I am to be associated with such incredible leaders as those with the AdvancingWithUs team.
My business and my family are in great hands.
Lake Forest, CA
I have my Master's Degree in Special Education, and taught ADD/ADHD, Learning
Handicapped and Behavior Disordered children for many years. I have 2
children, 13 & 15 years old, a family business, and I suffer from an
autoimmune disease called Lupus. Because Lupus can be very debilitating
at times, I'd been looking for a business that could provide me with a
reliable income from home in the event that the Lupus ever prevented me
from working outside the home.
Well, Several years ago a friend of mine introduced me to the AdvancingWithUs
team, and the company they've partnered with. She suggested that if I cared
about my health and the health of my family, I should consider replacing all
the harmful products in my home with a safer, more natural product line. At
that time, I had no idea that many of the products we all use in our homes
contained ingredients that could be harmful to my family's health, and could
be making the effects of my Lupus worse. You know, I had always believed
(as I am sure many people do) that if a product was sold in the store, it
had to be safe.....but I was certainly mistaken. I learned that many products,
in fact, are harmful to our health, but my friend introduced me to a company
that does manufacture safer, healthier products that even cost less than
products people purchase in their local stores.
So, I tried the products my friend suggested, and I was pleasantly surprised.
I found these products to be so good that I wanted to share them with others,
as well, and decided to go into business for myself.
Today, I am earning a reliable, residual income while educating others
about the wellness issues facing our society, and especially our children,
Fifteen years ago I had a very successful accounting business. I earned a great income, but I no longer enjoyed what I was doing. Then a friend called me to tell me about an MLM company. It sounded exciting and lucrative. I immersed myself and sold my profitable accounting practice to my partner.
That bad decision led to 11 years of financial disaster and ill health. My bills piled up, and my mortgage payments lapsed. This was a horribly painful period of my life. I developed Colitis and Crohn's Disease from this extended period of stress and uncertainty.
This business changed everything. A few years ago, when I was introduced to this business I was very skeptical, but I knew I had to make a change. I was not going to let my fear of failure prevent me from starting something that just made good business sense.
In my first year, I earned a six figure income. I was able to get out of debt and get back on track. Now I work from home, and have the time to do the things that I love and enjoy. I travel, spend time with my family but most importantly, my health is much better then it has been in years. Thanks to this business I am enjoying life to the fullest.
Partnering up with the AdvancingWithUs team offers a system that is easily mastered. AWU offers a plan that can be followed, state-of-the-art training, a place to stay plugged into and best of all of it is free. Teaming up with AdvancingWithUs makes doing this business simple.
My husband, Jim, and I both have solid educations and we have
both had professional careers. Jim is an MBA graduate and worked
in the banking industry for many years. I have my BA from Vassar
College and Masters from Columbia University. I worked in the
research collections of the New York Public Library at Lincoln
Center before moving to Connecticut where we built a house and
began a family. But we were already looking ahead to a better
life for our family, nicer weather, stable jobs and retirement
security, so we changed coasts. My career changed from Librarian
to running a successful language company for nearly twenty years.
However, it became apparent to my husband that banking had become
one of the most uncertain of careers to have. And I began to see
that the language company was not going to support my eventual
retirement. So you see, in spite of having this extensive education
it was not going to help us to a secure financial future. We had to
find a way, needed to find solutions, to secure this future. We
tried a home based business that did not work, but it was quite a
learning experience! Then we finally found a company that had no
risk and where no one could get hurt financially.
What we found was not only a safe business, but also so much more.
We found a wellness company that has enhanced not only our finances,
but our health, as well. My husband, who used to have many allergies,
is now virtually allergy free and I have so much more energy that I
can bound up the stairs to my office. I think you will see how this
company can enhance your lives as well, in so many ways.
Marian and Jim Grady,
I love this business. I also love to travel and spend time with my friends and family. One of the things I love most about our business, is that it allows us the freedom to earn a full-time income while working part-time.
Years ago, I was searching for a business in which I could work from home, at my own pace, without loading up my credit cards and becoming financially hurt. A home business that would allow me to eventually quit my job after it replaced my income and provided a reliable income.
I had previously been involved with many other home businesses, but I found myself on the wrong team, with the wrong people, with the wrong companies, and if I was not out doing the work, nothing was getting done--after I joined I was given little if any assistance in building my business. Please understand that I was totally committed to these other businesses, but the reality was those businesses just didn't work. With the duplicable system at AdvancingWithUs, all of that has changed.
After a great amount of due diligence, I made a decision to move forward with a business which makes total sense, AND with an awesome team of proven leaders. The AdvancingWithUs TEAM not only respected who we are, but matched their efforts with my efforts. AdvancingWithUs is the greatest support system that I have experienced. I am so excited that I made the decision I did. There is absolutely NO RISK WHATSOEVER, and no way for anyone to become financially hurt.
Once I understood what I had, I made a decision to get started. I rolled up my sleeves and went to work and with the help of my enroller enrolled my first 8 customers in 5 days. Through a team effort we have been able to attract some wonderful key leaders. As a result in just a few months I had phenomenal growth which has continued beyond what I ever expected.
Within a couple of years of working this business coupled with THE AWU system, I have realized a lifelong goal of leaving my J.O.B. as a manager of a nationwide drugstore chain - which I did in November, 2002. If you are searching for the business which could last you a lifetime, and could allow you more time with your family, please take a minute and fill out the Request More Info Form at this site for more information. You will be glad you did.
Several years ago my husband and I were in a "search mode" for a home based business that we could build together, for many reasons. I owned several women's shoe stores but gave that up to be a stay at home mom. I wanted to be there for my children and their many activities. My husband was and still is a sales representative for an automotive company located in Philadelphia, PA. We were concerned with the changes in the business world-small businesses were closing, corporations were downsizing and the economy was in a recession.
We were fortunate to have found this business and to have partnered with the AdvancingWithUs team; the founder of which is the top income earner in the company. This team, their extensive and state-of-the-art marketing system and tools, has enabled us to build a large customer base which provides us with an executive's income with part time effort.
The past 14 years with this company has been a blessing for our family. It has paid for our daughter's college education, and will pay for our son's college education as well. Recently, we built an addition to our home so my father-in-law could live with his children and grandchildren. We also have a RELIABLE income that will take care of us in our senior years.

In 2005, I left my career as a project manager and web designer at a Fortune 500 company to pursue a new career in the wellness industry. I had been studying health and nutrition for many years and felt I was meant to help others. I am now a Holistic Health and Nutritional Consultant, and work with people to modify their diet, environment and lifestyle in order to achieve optimal health.
Before I began consulting, I was attending a lecture on the impact of chemicals on our health and the environment, and met a wonderful lady who told me about a great team I could partner with that would be a good fit with my health counseling business. I have been working with the AdvancingWithUs team ever since and have been able to create the financial and time freedom I needed to pursue my career in health counseling. I am able to work from home, walk my children to and from school, attend school functions and extra-curricular activities, take vacations when I want to, and own my own destiny…something I would have never been able to achieve working for someone else. I feel so blessed to have found such a wonderful opportunity!
