Coastal Vacations Director, Stephanie Stovall

made $96,000 in her first year of business, and she’s still going strong.





tephanie has redefined “work-at-home mom”.... and has turned it into a “work-at-home family!” Many men and women dream of being able to stay home with their kids, but few families get to have both mom and dad stay home. Yet, that’s exactly what has happened at the Stovall’s house. Jon and Stephanie Stovall both stay home with their kids and all because they finally found a work at home opportunity that really works. Stephanie started looking for ways to make money from home almost 17 years ago. After spending over $18,000 trying dozens of MLMs, Network Marketing businesses, gifting programs and anything else she could find, she was ready to quit. Stephanie said, “I really started to think it was just me... my self-esteem hit rock-bottom... we had failed miserably at every business we had tried. I really wanted to be home with our kids, and I was afraid it just wasn’t going to happen.” That’s when things started looking up for them. In September 1999, Stephanie’s phone number ended up on a network marketing lead list. She spoke with a guy who was consistently making $4,000 or more per week in a non-MLM business. He told her about the incredible value of the Coastal travel package, and how she could make a minimum of $1,000 per sale. “I was skeptical at first,” Stephanie said, “because of all the negative experiences I had before, but I really wanted to believe it was for real. I wanted to stay home with my new baby so badly and we really needed the extra income.” The next problem was how to get started. Since Stephanie had been out of work since her son was born, money was really tight. “I knew it would take money to make money and, unfortunately, money was the one thing I didn’t have.” She said she would lie awake at night trying to come up with a way to get the capital she needed to get her business off the ground. “Then it hit me. I realized that it wasn’t really the money holding me back,” she said. “It was my lack of belief in myself. I felt so beaten-down by my past failures that I doubted myself. That was a huge turning point for me, mentally. There was no standing in my way after that!” The next day, Mrs. Stovall did some things that most people would see as rash... she pawned the title to their only car at the local pawn shop, and then she dragged all her living room furniture out onto the front lawn and had a yard sale! She raised just enough money to get her business started. “All I did was call people back that had answered my ad. I’d give them a website and a phone number, and that’s it. By the end of my first week... I had 3 sales! By the end of my first month, I’d made a total profit of $14,000! I was so excited! I never imagined we’d make enough for me and my husband to BOTH stay home.” That was over 13 years ago. Stephanie is now a Platinum Director with Coastal, selling travel packages worldwide and currently serves

on the Board of Directors. She is internationally recognized as an expert in the industry, has personally trained thousands of people to work from home successfully with Coastal, and expects to be doing this for years to come. “I have people I helped to get started in this business over 10 years ago that I still talk to every week. I work very closely with my personal team, and because of that, we are more than just a team… we can’t help but become friends. With all the people I have brought in and trained over the years, that adds up to a huge group of great friends!” Stephanie’s team also travels together. They recently got back from a team cruise and have a resort retreat scheduled for Orlando, Florida in September. She believes that “the team who plays together stays together.” The Stovalls’ really enjoy the freedom their business gives them. Stephanie only works 3-4 hours a day, yet earns enough to pay their bills and still travel the world with their children.

Stephanie has redefined “workat-home mom”.... and has turned it into a “work-at-home family!” “It has been such a blessing for us. I think Coastal is the best home business out there. If we want to go out of town, we just go. We don’t have to ask anyone’s permission. I think this is how families were meant to be... together.” Working from home is a growing trend in America, and many, like the Stovalls’, are finding new and more creative ways to make it possible. A century ago, the majority of Americans worked for themselves. Since then, it has become the opposite... most of us work for someone else. But with the current trends, it looks like the next hundred years may see a return to the way things used to be. People value their freedom. Working for yourself is one of the greatest freedoms we can have... the freedom to control our own lives. n

A Premier

OPPORTUNITY Coastal Vacations is the one of the world’s most impressive home businesses

There are 10 qualities that smart people look for in a business opportunity. These things include: substantial immediate income, a low initial investment, product value (the product can sell itself), no inventory, an easy-to-use system, company stability, duplicable, worldwide appeal, exponential growth, and long term income. You can find opportunities that offer two or three or four of these qualities. But it’s hard to find a business that offers all ten. In fact, it’s almost impossible. But Coastal Vacations directors believe that they’ve found a business that gives them all 10 qualities in one opportunity.

Simple to Start

It’s easy to get started with Coastal. You make a low initial investment in a vacation package of incredible value, and you’re on your way. You’re a business owner—not to mention that you suddenly have access to 100s of exclusive travel deals! Then you begin to duplicate your success by sharing the value of the vacation packages with others. People of all ages and backgrounds love to travel. Even people who don’t spend much money will spend money on a travel experience, especially when they can get a great deal.

Money that Makes a Difference

Every time someone decides to buy a vacation package from you, you make substantial money—between $1000-$9705 per referral. Unlike some home businesses that offer small, incremental earnings or a bit of extra cash each month, Coastal offers a way to really replace your income, not just supplement it. And there’s no inventory. You send your referrals to Coastal and they drop ship the package directly to your clients. You have nothing to store and nothing to mail.



Marketing Magic

When you’re about to launch a business, it’s easy to get nervous about how you’ll make it work. But with Coastal, you’re not alone. Once you’ve started your business, you’re surrounded by a team of people who are eager to help you succeed by providing clear, easy-to-follow instructions on how to find customers, advertise, and set up a system so that you can relax and see your business work for you. You’ll receive training on how to use various methods of advertising, including mailings, internet ads, seminars, trade shows and many more. You don’t need to chase family and friends; your Coastal team will show you how to find people who are truly interested in what you have to offer. But you’re not bound by others’ methods! Have a creative or interesting way to market your business? Go ahead! You are in complete control of your business and can do what you want to generate sales or find clients. And you’re not limited to the United States. Coastal has a worldwide appeal and you can share it anywhere! Basically if you can find people who want to take a trip, you are in business.

Do It Anywhere One of the most exciting things about a business with Coastal Vacations is the portability. When you decide to take advantage of one of your exciting travel deals, you can take your business with you. Answer the phone or check your email when you have time…and then sit back and enjoy your vacation! Coastal Vacations definitely has something special. The business has existed for 25 years, in a time when many home businesses don’t make it past the 5-year mark. Now is the time for you to investigate this business and see what it has to offer. n Want a chance to discover how Coastal Vacations, one of the top home business opportunities, can work for you? call 1.877.886.4735 or visit



SUCCESS STORY Nerium International


magine making a multiple six-figure income every year. And



then imagine walking away from that income to join a new company.

Sound crazy? That’s exactly what Mark and Tammy Smith

chose to do. The Smiths were making good money in another company, but after taking a look at Nerium, Mark and Tammy actually decided to leave their multiple six-figure income to start fresh with this explosive new venture. “We walked away from an already established income because we had that much confidence in Nerium,” Mark says. Fortunately their confidence paid off. Mark and Tammy are now the top earners in Nerium, bringing in $2.3 million a year, and just qualified for a $1 million dollar Live Better Bonus. What gave them their confidence and their success? First of all, says Mark, it was the product. “Anti-aging skincare is the right space to be in,” Mark says. “And our product is the absolute best. People see quick results, and that means our customers keep coming back for more.” Additionally, Nerium’s management team, led by CEO Jeff Olson, consists of some of the top relationship marketers in the world, and they know how to run a business. Olson, who wrote the popular marketing book The Slight Edge is one of the nation’s top businessmen, and together with company President Dennis Windsor and the rest of the team, they have over 150 years of experience. But, most importantly, they care about their brand partners and want to make it easy to share the product and build an income. “You can run your business entirely from your phone with Nerium’s app,” Mark explains. “The company also has Madison Avenue branding, and a compensation package that pays you 13 different ways.” Additionally, he explained, there are iPad, Lexus, and exotic trip bonuses. “Over 200 people have earned bonuses from $25,000 to $1,000,000” Mark says. “And 4500 people have qualified for our car bonus. All that in less than 2 years!” Nerium’s growth is the stuff of record books. With only one product and in only one country, the company has managed to grow 3600% from 2011 to 2012 and was recently awarded the Bravo Growth award from Direct Selling News. “Nerium did over $100 million in sales in our first full year,” Mark says. “I’m pretty sure no one has ever done that. And we were the fastest company to make the Global Top 100 network marketing companies.” But things aren’t slowing down. At their convention, attended

Mark and Tammy Smith left one company to start over with Nerium—a choice that paid big! 14


by 10,000 brand partners, Nerium rolled out the next big thing: an anti-aging day cream that promises to be just as effective as Nerium’s original product.

SEVEN-FIGURE START UP...CONT. “We’re just at the beginning of our growth,” Mark explains. “If we did this much with just one product in one country, imagine what can happen with additional products and international expansion.” The Smiths are committed to helping others take advantage of Nerium’s growth. They have helped create over 90 six-and seven-figure income earners in Nerium in 22 months. “We have tons of people making $10,000 to over $100,000 a month,” Mark adds. While the money, the bonuses, and the leadership are important, Mark and Tammy are also thrilled with the company culture. “Nerium is a family-run business with a classy culture,” Mark says. “We are attracting top-notch people who are looking to get ahead. We bring our kids to conventions. It’s just very positive—Nerium is about making people better.”

That shows in the company’s commitment to charity. Big Brothers Big Sisters gave Nerium the Community Impact Award at its 2013 National Conference in Denver. This honor recognizes a Big Brothers Big Sisters partner whose energy and unparalleled generosity has impacted the Big Brothers Big Sisters community. Nerium brand partners are known for committing time and money to an organization that “pays it forward.” Family and children are important to Mark and Tammy, who started in the home business industry because they saw not only the potential for financial success, but also the freedom that the industry offered. “We have a vacation home in Hawaii where we go often,” says Mark, “and we homeschool our kids. That was the most important thing to us: that we get to spend 7 days a week with them. They’ve been able to travel with us and see places that most children don’t have the opportunity to experience.” And there’s money for the fun things, too. Even though they aren’t big spenders, on a recent wedding anniversary Tammy treated Mark to his dream car: a Ferrari Scuderia 16M. “I’d always wanted a supercar,” Mark says. “It’s been a dream of mine. And really, that’s what this business gives you: the freedom to do what you want and to fulfill your

dreams.” n

When People Pay Their Monthly Bills Shane Douglas, one of the home-based business industry’s top income earners and trainers is looking to mentor the right motivated individual in 2013 to achieve success with his premier home based business model. Visit


t’s a fact that everyone has utility and monthly bills: Electric, gas, cell phone, TV, Internet, and the list goes on. And no matter how financially challenged or wealthy someone may be, these essential services are needed and can never be paid off; everyone will have to pay for these services for the rest of their lives out of necessity. So when a global company is open in 23 countries worldwide (launching into Latin America in 2013) and endorsed by one of the wealthiest people in the world, who features this company on his hit primetime reality TV show not once but twice, says you should find out more, would you want to hear more about it? What if this same company said they’d pay you generously for helping others get paid when they pay their monthly essential bills, would you want to know even more? Shane Douglas did, and it’s paid off in an incredible way for him. It’s been eight years since this Idaho native living in a town of just 1,500 people started his home-based business helping people achieve their financial goals and showing them how they too can get paid every time they pay their own monthly bills. “I was tired of all the promises from other companies that say you can become wealthy over night only to find out you have to sell and teach others how to sell products that are either overpriced or only appeal to a small percentage of the population,” says Shane. “Our company is different: We only offer services that people pay on monthly basis like gas, electricity, TV, internet, cell phones, home security and more. And I don’t sell anything; I just simply show others how to get paid every month for services they were going to use anyway and teach others to do the same.” Shane explains that recent deregulation of Energy providers around the country has opened up a significant opportunity for more people to choose who they get their service with, people like to know they have a choice, Shane says. This, in turn, creates more opportunity for entrepreneurs to grow their business with our company. “In this declining economy, home-based businesses are on the rise. People want to supplement their income and possibly replace their incomes while working from home. So the opportunity to get paid every single month when someone turns on their lights, heats their home, uses their cellphone watches TV, logs onto the Internet or arms their security system is a no-brainer,” he says.

The way Shane has grown to be one of the top income earners and trainers in this business is by following the system the company offers all of its independent business owners (IBOs). He says that he tells people they can get the same services from the same major service providers, but get paid. Then, according to Shane, all he does is direct them to his online store, which is included in the companies start up business package. “Our system can be 100% automated for you,” he explains. “Simply direct potential customers to your online store that the company provides for you, and they can sign up for any of these services with many of the major companies that are available in their area. When they sign up on your online store, you receive a residual commission every month when they pay their bills. It’s that simple.” The key to his success, he says, is that he doesn’t complicate his business; he just goes out and shares the company’s program and his personal story. ”Before you join some other company that makes pie in the sky promises, ask yourself one simple question. Would people I know buy this product/ service even if I wasn’t involved with this company and making money? If the answer is NO then you should be prepared to be in sales and the team your going to build better be prepared to be sales people. Because no matter how much money they say you can make it won’t matter if you or your team of business partners can’t sell. This is where we are different, as I said before we only provide essential services that people need, want and can’t be paid off. This is an incredible business model with the right services behind it,” says Shane “It might not be sexy—it’s utilities after all—but it is simple to just share the story. Everyone can relate, because everyone pays these bills, because they have to,” he says. “I’ve been fortunate to have had major success with this company by taking action and so has my team. We’ve expanded all over the world by sharing this simple concept with others. Shane is looking to mentor the right motivated individual in 2013 to the same level of success that he has accomplished, would you like it to be you? n To see more information about this company go to Their proven leadership, who started out just like you, are here to answer your questions and help you get started.

Katrina Ferguson found a way to stay at home and make a successful living, too.


atrina Ferguson loved being a stay-at-home mom. Girl Scout leader, field trip matter what, she was deeply involved in the activities of her three children. That all changed when she and her husband separated and he took his sixfigure income with him. Katrina had to return to work right away, not only taking time away from her kids’ activities during the day, but also cutting into her church responsibilities, and her responsibilities as an only child to her mother. “I actually was working in a law firm 50-60 hours a week trying to make ends meet,” Katrina remembers. “There were times I would take calls from people who needed lawyers and couldn’t afford the high hourly rate.” Katrina couldn’t afford an attorney’s hourly rate either, so when someone showed her a way to get legal help for a low monthly fee, she immediately signed up. LegalShield provided her access to a nationwide network of pre-approved and vetted attorneys, and she could use their services whenever she needed to. “I got this membership because I needed legal help during the separation that ultimately turned into a divorce,” Katrina says. “Although I worked with them, I couldn’t afford attorneys. I loved the service. I was telling everyone ‘you’ve got to get this’.” Katrina had been in network marketing companies before and even made money, but, at the end of the day, she never felt good about the product, nor felt like she was offering a service people needed. In this case, however, she was already spreading the word about a service she loved...and she didn’t even know there was a business opportunity! “No one told me,” she explains. “Then I went to a party and I overheard a story





about a man who was doing extremely well with LegalShield. And he was a mailman! I knew I had to meet him.” That man became her coach, and Katrina dove into her new opportunity. Because of her work schedule and responsibilities at home, she was only able to use lunch hours and Saturday mornings working her business, along with Tuesday evenings. “On the first day, I earned money.  Additionally, I was able to work the business and supplement my income on my lunch hours, ” Katrina says. “In 57 days I had enough proof that this business was real. Two months later achieved the top position in the company.  As the years passed, the opportunity - and rewards - continued to expand.” Katrina’s goal, in addition to helping others and her team, was always to get back home with her family. She says her kids have benefited from her business: one has graduated from college, another is a senior, and neither have had to worry about how to pay for it. All three have gotten to travel to countries all over the world. Most importantly, Katrina says, is that they’ve learned there’s a different way to have a career. “My kids have seen that you don’t have to work 9-5 to be successful,” she says. “LegalShield has been the vehicle that’s driven me into bigger dreams and given me opportunities to create.” Her creativity has led Katrina to give back, embracing her church activities and missions’ trips. She’s also actively involved in working with women, especially with other single moms. Her business continues to thrive, with a team that’s experiencing what Katrina calls “crazy momentum.” She has

“My income is not typical and no specific income is guaranteed. Individual incomes will vary depending upon your own efforts and abilities and of your sales team.”

even secured a second home in another state to help her run her business; something she never would’ve expected. “I have a place in Florida now, too,” she says. “The team there is growing and there are many people reaching higher levels every month.” Katrina treats her team like family. First, it’s simply about helping them get a LegalShield membership. “If you can breathe and fog a mirror, you’re going to need an attorney at some point,” Katrina says. Members can consult attorneys for wills, divorces, traffic tickets--basically any problem that requires legal services--all for as low as $17 a month. Then, if they want to, team members can share the business opportunity. “We give them the opportunity to do good by telling other people about the LegalShield membership,” Katrina says. “And LegalShield gives you the ability to do well financially, a win-win for everyone. It’s about being a blessing to your family and to others.” n

GOODBYE, measly MLM income.





e’ve all had weekday mornings when we open our eyes before sunrise and want nothing more than to stay under the warm covers to continue that wonderful dream that was so rudely interrupted by the blare of the alarm clock. Thing is, we can’t. Most of us crawl out of bed and begin the agonizing process of getting ready for another day at the office. As much as we wish we could, we can’t just roll over and drift back to sleep. Aaron and Sophia Rashkin can—and do. After starting an online home business, the couple’s lifestyle was transformed into one of those fantasies most people only dream about while they sleep. Aaron and Sophia have hundreds of thousands of dollars tucked away in the bank, a thriving business that continues to soar, and two boys who get their parents’ undivided attention every single day. “Our new business is completely life-changing,” Aaron says. “How many people can say they wake up every morning without the financial pressure of today’s economy?” Things weren’t always so nice for the Rashkins. Aaron and Sophia were top leaders in a traditional network-marketing company where they worked tirelessly to achieve a lifestyle of total independence. Unfortunately, the hard work wasn’t paying off. Though the couple was



among the top earners in the company, they quickly found out the phrase “top earner” is relative. “We worked our tails off but weren’t making the kind of money we wanted,” Aaron says. “Our monthly checks were just enough to cover the mortgage, and we were among the more successful people in the company.” It wasn’t just the money that had Aaron and Sophia frustrated. There was something far more valuable at stake— time with their children. The Rashkins put in countless hours every week building their network-marketing business, and it came at a price. They desperately wanted more time with their eight-year-old son and had another baby boy on the way. Aaron and Sophia knew they needed a change. “Our business ate up all of our time and caused a lot of stress,” Aaron says. “We weren’t able to bond with our boys because we were always doing business. For the amount of money we made, it wasn’t worth it.” But today, life is very different—no cold calls, no hitting up family and friends, and no home parties. “It’s a real business, and it earns real income,” Aaron says. Aaron and Sophia’s new business has given them the lifestyle they’ve always wanted. There are five digits on their monthly paycheck, and with a business that’s growing every day, it’s easy for the Rashkins to take a few weeks off here and there to relax at home or go on vacation. In the past year, they’ve visited the Dominican Republic, Lake Tahoe, Austin, Las Vegas, San Diego, New York, and Florida, and so far, they have trips to Asia, the Greek Islands, and Hawaii scheduled for next year. More importantly, though, their family never takes a backseat to work. The couple has breakfast with their two boys every morning, and because they can afford a full-time nanny to take care of their youngest son, Aaron and Sophia are able to attend every event at their older son’s school—something few other parents can do. Aaron and Sophia stress that their situation isn’t unique to them. “Anyone with a sincere desire to be successful, who is willing to put forth the effort, can achieve their dreams through this business. We have countless members on our team who are experiencing life-changing results in a timeframe that’s worth getting excited about,” Sophia explains. “There are so many people making big-time money here right out of the gate,” Aaron adds. “What took us five years to make in our previous company we made in less than a year here. There are team members six and seven months into the business who are earning more than they thought possible. This business is the real deal.” n Go to or call 888.879.4441 to learn more about the home business that allows Aaron and Sophia Rashkin plenty of time with their family and has eliminated their financial worries for good.
