ROBERTDEAN There is a key which, if properly used and understood, will ensure the success of any endeavor- the key is desire. If we are willing to pay the price, even our circumstances change. If we want something badly enough, we are sure to get it. If we have the desire, we have the power.

Triple Diamond Black Pearl Founder - T.O.P.G.U.N.® Millionaire Club Member Club Marquises Robert was born May 13, 1966 in Atlanta Georgia to the proud parents of Robert L. Dean Sr. and Norma Dean. From a young age, others could identify what Robert was capable of. Today, Robert has become far more than anybody could have ever dreamed. Robert attended Herndon and John Carey Elementary Schools. He continued as an honor roll student until graduat-

ing from the 7th grade. High School years at West Fulton was a bountiful experience. He was an honor roll student from the 8th through the 12th grade. Throughout high school, Robert worked as an art student, a Beta Club member, an honor society member and a officer in the ROTC. Robert graduated 4th in his senior class. He received a 4-year

scholarship to Clark University and Atlanta University. He majored in engineering while attending both colleges, remaining an honor student. Robert worked at several jobs and owned several businesses, but Robert’s dream was to retire his parents and give his son a life where he would never have to worry about anything, at least financially. Robert began to observe the

network marketing industry. As he came to understand what the system was capable of, he concluded it could become the vehicle to pave the way for him to have the finances to accomplish his dreams and goals. One of the main factors that intrigued Robert about network marketing was the fact that you can own a business with little or no overhead. Having experience in different businesses, the nearly non-existent overhead interested Robert because he knew how high the overhead could get, and how it gets in the way of being able to take home your own money. Robert took the plunge. He went to the top of each MLM company that he was involved in. Robert reached many of his goals, but his downline never received the maximum from these companies. Robert knew the importance of everyone being recognized and compensated for their work. It was at this point Robert sought for a company that could really help people reach their dreams. May of 2001, was the beginning of a beautiful relationship with the company Robert had been searching for, Morinda, Inc. now (Tahitian Noni® International). In a short 18 months, Robert reached the top of the compensation plan. He formed his own internal company, T.O.P.G.U.N.® International, Inc., which stands for TOGETHER OVERCOMING A POVERTY MINDSET WHILE GETTING UNLIMITED INCOME NOW.

BARRYBYRD

Triple Diamond Black Pearl Co-Founder - T.O.P.G.U.N.® Millionaire Club Member Barry Byrd knows what it means to sacrifice and serve others. As a lieutenant in the Navy, he served his country during Operation Desert Storm, and upon his return, had plans of becoming a commercial pilot. “It was perfect.

10 T.O.P.G.U.N. ® SUCCESS STORIES

My last name is Byrd, and I was going to fly as a pilot,” he laughs. But when he was diagnosed with Lupus, Barry saw his dreams fade away. “They clipped my wings, so to speak,” he says.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life - Confucius

When Barry was approached by his friend, Bill Kirtley, to try Tahitian Noni® Juice, Barry was skeptical. “I thought he was just trying to recruit me and my partner Robert Dean,” he explains. The most serious networkers knew of Barry and Rob’s reputation for getting results, and many people were out to recruit them. Though hesitant at first, after trying Tahitian Noni® Juice, Barry says, “I was blown away! How could this juice be so good and nobody know about it? Then I saw a huge opportunity.” Together with his friends Robert Dean and Herschel Gibbs, Barry helped establish the T.O.P.G.U.N.® organization. T.O.P.G.U.N.® is an acronym for Together Overcoming a Poverty mindset while Getting Unlimited income Now. “You see, ego and pride are two things that will keep you broke,” Barry shares. “EGO simply means Edging God Out. You have to be willing to humble yourself to be a success in this business.” He continues, “People will say to me, ‘How am I going to look selling juice?’ I simply share with them, you’ve got to remove your pride and look at the results!” “I am 43 years old and I earn DOUBLE in one month than I did in an entire year working as a Systems Engineer when I was with Lockheed!

Living the life people dream about. Barry is also an advocate and good example of operating from where you


are. His eight-moth-old-daughter Jazmine accompanied him to every meeting and event while he was in the beginning stages of building his business. “I would hide her under the table in her baby seat before my meetings began. She never cried and rarely made a peep! She would smile and play with her feet, and look up at me. She was and is a very happy and blessed child. Now five-years-old, Jazmine is known to many in the T.O.P.G.U.N.® organizations as the original Noni Baby. “She’s everything to me, and to be able to pick her up from school and be

there for her every day, well, I can’t put a price tag on that, “ he states. “Most people work their families around their careers, but Tahitian Noni® allowed me to work my business around my family.” In six short years, Barry and his team have literally helped tens-of-thousands of people take charge of their lives. “I’m a real ‘you reap what you sow’ kind of guy. That’s my philosophy. I know that if I focus on helping others become successful, then I don’t have to worry about myself. The money you earn is a byproduct of helping a lot of people.”

People often ask me about paying cash for my Bentley. They say “You did all this with Noni?” My reply is always, “Yes. Noni.”

HERSCHELGIBBS

Triple Diamond Black Pearl Co-Founder - T.O.P.G.U.N.® Millionaire Club Member Putting it All in Perspective People often ask me what moved me to the Tahitian Noni ®, International oppportunity. I usually respond by telling them that I almost missed it. I heard about Morinda (TNI’s parent company) in 1997, when it was only a year old. At the time, I was heavily involved in another network marketing opportunity, and I thought I was in the opportunity of the century. I was pouring my heart out to empower people with vision, commitment, belief, focus, etc., but the company that I was involved with lacked the essential qualities to have long term impact in the industry. Without realizing it, I was climbing an uphill battle.

12 T.O.P.G.U.N. ® SUCCESS STORIES

I believed in the power of passive and residual income, and the documentation of the MLM industry was not on trial. Why then did it seem that I was running on a treadmill? How could I invest so much time, energy and resources over such a long period of time, and achieve so little? I understood that sacrifice and commitment were paramount to success, but it just seemed that at some point, I would see the evidence of success SOMEWHERE; especially in my income. I began to fear the one thing that I vowed to never do, and that is to enroll a mass of people in an opportunity that I knew would not bring success. The more I looked inwardly, the

more I realized that I had blinded myself to my true responsibilities as a leader: to objectively guide and lead people who entrust themselves to my leadership, to the best possible opportunity to achieve success. I grew to understand that in leadership, you sometimes have to make tough decisions, even if it requires a change of direction. Once I settled with the fact that I wasn’t a loser or a quitter because I shifted directions, I was able to lead people to a destiny that had no boundaries. Not only did I fully appreciate the TIMING of the Tahitian Noni®, International opportunity, I also realized that it contained everything I was seeking, things that no other company was


delivering. Where I was once living a life of quiet desperation, I now experience a peace and a financial strength that I’ve never experienced before. Being eternally grateful and appreciative to have my business partner and wife Lynn, and two golden sons Adrian and Jahi, it’s difficult to describe the lifestyle change that we have today. Where else can you find an opportunity that affords you the ability to pay cash for not one, but two Mercedes

Benzs? To purchase a multimillion dollar home on one end of the city and a 600thousand dollar “crash pad” on the other? All of this in less than 6 years! Yes, I am aware that these are material items, but after struggling for years in pursuit of success, it feels great to see that it actually IS possible to achieve it. The greatest joy however, is that there are so many other people achieving the same type of success. I used to almost succumb to the idea that we should not be so concerned about materialism, and money, and all. But

when you’ve lost nearly everything you own in an effort to provide a better life for your family, and you’ve prayed to GOD for the relief of the pain and suffering, I don’t find difficulty in receiving GOD’s blessings. Many of us miss our blessings because we hold on to the past. Trust me, I have a healthy respect for the past, but I only give it power if it can positively affect my future. You can make a choice to stay in your current situation, or you can take advantage of what’s in place for you with T.O.P.G.U.N.® and Tahitian Noni®, Inernational. If you choose not to, who will you ever blame for leaving such an opportunity on the table? You can’t blame your past, because just like your future, the past results in your life were all based on your capacity to exercise CHOICE. Either way the choice is yours.

JAMESTUCKER

“When I was told that the company founders were creating a home for battered networkers, I knew that these guys would have to be for real. Why would they make a statement like that unless they had the integrity to back it?”

Triple Diamond Black Pearl Co-Founder - T.O.P.G.U.N.® Millionaire Club Member James Tucker is passionate about the process of movie-making. He has a dream of someday producing his own movies. “ I love escaping into a good movie; especially good, old-fashioned stories. I like movies that have a great story.” The story of James Tucker’s life is one of a focused individual who turned his life around from

14 T.O.P.G.U.N. ® SUCCESS STORIES

rags to riches. He struggled financially with a mortgage company and real estate business that he owned. Eventually he had to file for bankruptcy and lost all his rental property. His situation appeared bleak. However, after speaking to a friend about Tahitian Noni ® International, James was able to see the potential for genuine improvement in his life.

“I don’t feel like there is any other opportunity on the planet that compares with TNI for a hardworking person,” James says. “Even if we have the money to do this ourselves, we don’t have the know-how. I worked for myself for twenty years, and it failed because I didn’t have the mentoring.” James knew that Tahitian Noni®, International was destined to be successful right from the start.


“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will” Vince Lombardi

“When I was told that the company founders were creating a home for battered networkers, I knew that these guys would have to be for real. Why would they make a statement like that unless they had the integrity to back it?” In addition to the company’s financial success, James appreciates its genuine sincerity. “I love the environment; you know that you have support and that everyone involved with the company is concerned about your success.”

Now James is personally enjoying the fairy-tale ending of a good movie, although it isn’t the end for him. One of the greatest lifestyle changes James has is a financial peace of mind. “It’s amazing to realize what life was like five years ago; it’s unbelievable. I forget that I lived like that. It’s just incredible to make this kind of money and know that it’s behind a product that has helped impact people’s lives.”

“People without vision perish. You have to see yourself successful and see how you can be involved in this company.” “If TNI only did half of what they do, this would still be the greatest opportunity that I’ve ever been involved with.”

“People without vision perish. You have to see yourself successful and see how you can be involved in this company.”

PIQUE INTEREST SCRIPT QUESTIONS 1. “Do you keep your business options open?” 2. “Would you be open to an idea where you can help build a world-wide brand like Coca Cola or Microsoft and position yourself to retire with all of your dreams?”

good notes, to a person who is highly documented in this business financially, they are helping a whole lot of people, they are extremely happy and having a lot of fun doing this business.

MOTIVATION

Logic

Is Not Contagious Jerry DRhino Clark

“If you catch on fire with enthusiasm, people will come from miles away to watch you burn.”

I first heard this statement nearly 2 decades ago while listening to a preacher on an audio tape. It was a very profound statement for me at the time and -- actually -- it still is. Have you noticed that people who seem to be pumped up and excited about life, tend to become almost like a spectacle of some sort. In other words, people just get value from being around them and watching them. The emotion and excitement that is emitted is Sort of Contagious. By the way, you may have noticed that a person who is pumped up, excited, and filled with emotion about what they are doing does not have to be jumping around acting crazy talking about how great life is; sometimes, it’s just an internal passion and drive that other people can “pick up on” and sense. (If you’ve spent anytime around Robert Dean, he would be a perfect example of someone who radiates an internal passion without having to jump up and down). On the other hand, have you ever been around someone who you can almost sense is very apathetic about life. You can tell that life is dull and a drudgery for them. Even if they know hot to impersonate a good game by saying the “right” words, you can still feel that something is missing. There seems to be no life in their words. (For example, just think of some of the prospects you’ve had in the past.) This is a key point here: Life is not necessarily in the Logic of the Words, Life is in the Emotion behind the words. [Whoa ... Good one ...  That one just came out of me at that moment ... I’m PUMPED!]  Let me repeat this because it’s so powerful:  Life is not necessarily in the Logic of

28 T.O.P.G.U.N. ® SUCCESS STORIES

the Words, Life is in the Emotion behind the words. Always Remember That LOGIC IS NOT CONTAGIOUS! This is especially important in the business of Network Marketing, and as it specifically pertains to you building your Noni Enterprise via the T.O.P.G.U.N.® organization. If you are to make sure that your prospecting, inviting, presentations, follow-ups, getting starting sessions, trainings, etc., are going to be effective, it’s crucial that you understand what we’ve just said above. LOGIC IS NOT CONTAGIOUS! The quicker you can get yourself to realize that people are predominately Emotional in Nature (at least 80-90%), the quicker you will realize that the key to this business, and just about anything else that deals with people, is to be sure to organize the processes of business as much as possible to tap into the Emotions of Humans. In Network Marketing for example, get them talking about and visioning their dreams. Get them to your trainings and make sure your trainings are based around tapping into the hearts, dreams, and desires of the human psyche. Effectively structure and give recognition, praise, compliments, etc. Make people feel important. Don’t just give people information at events, etc., give them an experience. Give them a show. The reason why is because people don’t just want to be educated, they want to be entertained.  Thus, figure out ways you can provide this extra added element into your business and workings with people. When I conduct my seminars, for example, I make sure I keep people laughing and having a good time. (Those of you who have attended some of the trainings I have conducted for the T.O.P.G.U.N.® organization would remember this.) People love

this. While I have them in various emotional states, I slip in all sorts of great learning points. These points then are better assimilated into their subconscious minds and they actually learn more than they think. But, more importantly, they want to come back to another training ... and another one ... and they want to bring other people. Then they talk about the trainings with others ... and so on and so on. When they are done with one of my trainings, they feel good! Why?  Because, I tapped into their emotions. I didn’t just educate them, I gave them an experience. I have been known to dress up as various characters in order to pull this off. I have done skits on stage at various times in my career to pull this off. And guess what ... when I look at the most successful people and businesses around the world, I notice that the most successful are the ones who are able to find ways to tap into people’s emotions. In regards to entertainment, look at personal development and Tony Robbins. Regardless of what you think about him, his mastery of personal development and entertainment why he has placed himself in a different stratosphere than most personal empowerment speakers. His ability to captivate an audience is one of the reasons why he can demand $125,000-$200,000 for a one hour talk. Advertisements, commercials, etc. The most successful advertising, as understood by the Masters of Advertisement on Madison Avenue, is entertaining. Check out Budweiser and their funny commercials that get you to laugh, but have nothing to do with beer, nevertheless, they give you an experience. Insurance companies that provide skits that have nothing to do with insurance, but once they get you laughing and give you an experience, they mention their company’s name.

Herschel’s secrets of recruiting Answers to the Questions As a 6 year old child, I would always tell my parents that one day I was going to be “RICH.” (Of course in the early 60’s, the term “wealthy” wasn’t vogue yet). Many times they would laugh, but I was really serious! As I moved through life, I found myself willing to do whatever it would take to become successful. After going through a lot of frustrations and setbacks along the way, I began to wonder if I was going to end up being a dreamer, with unfulfilled dreams. Many people wonder and marvel at people who achieve great levels of success in life. We often long for the lifestye, wealth, freedom from time restrictions, better health, and limitless boundaries to pursue our dreams. We think about

the ability provide for our love ones, and those less fortunate, without any concern about money or debts. Most of us are even willing to do whatever it takes to be in such a position. So why then, are so many people so void and empty of what seems to be so accessible? The answer to the following questions are critical to anyone serious about their success.

• Will you pay the price for your success, without bouncing the check with apathy, poor attitude, inflated ego, and poor work ethic?

• Do you believe you deserve the success you’re seeking?

Not only did I find answers to these questions with T.O.P.G.U.N.® and Tahitian Noni® International. The individuals on the pages of this publication all have one thing in common; they too demonstrate and exemplify the “answers” to the exact same questions.

• Are you willing to sacrifice some conveniences? • Will you be willing to detach from who you’ve been, to become who’ll need to be?

• Will you be willing to conquer the fear of the unknown, to move to the destiny you were born to fulfill: to be “wealthy”?

Barry’s secrets of recruiting TEAMWORK Ask anyone in network marketing what the acronym TEAM means, most often they’ll say, “Together Everyone Achieves More!” Webster’s dictionary defines teamwork as “a Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more individuals for the attainment of a definite purpose.” The T.O.P.G.U.N.® team exemplifies this acronym and definition and the proof is shown in this magazine. The brain is like an electric battery. Just as a battery has cells so does the brain. Most individual brains are “out of phase” the way it would be if you combined a ‘D’ cell battery with a ‘9’ volt battery. But when the team is focused on a common goal, it’s as if all the batteries are of the same phase and type. So now your working with a team of ‘D’ cell batteries. Anyone knows you’ll get more energy out of a group of the same types of batteries versus a group of many different types of batteries. When a team of individual brains are in coordination and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to every individual brain in the team. Teamwork makes you better than you are alone. It multiplies your value to others. It enables you to do what you do best. It allows you to help others to do their best. Teamwork gives you more time, provides you with companionship, helps you fulfill the desires of your heart and makes everyone on the team a winner. Four keys to team success are (1) People in the team determine the potential of the team. (2) Vision determines the direction of the team. (3) Work ethic determines the preparation of the team. (4) Leadership determines the success of the team. Winning teams often have four common things. (1) They play to win. (2) They have a winning attitude. (3) They use personal development to keep improving.

(4) They make their team-mates more successful. It is very common, in any successful venture for the team to lose cohesion. Michael Jordan wrote: ”I can’t accept not trying. There are plenty of teams in every sport that have great players and never win titles. Most of the time, those players aren’t willing to sacrifice for the greater good of the team. The funny thing is, in the end, their unwillingness to sacrifice only makes individual goals more difficult to achieve. One thing I believe to the fullest is that if you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades will take care of themselves.” Some steps to keep your team tight are: (1) Respectfully gain control from the start. (2) Resist the urge to kick people off the team. They could develop into a powerhouse member of the team. But, if they are not there, that’s not possible. (3) Take inventory of any assets and obstacles quickly. (4) Find the hidden leaders and help them develop. Lastly, your goal should be for your team to happily do what you ask. Here are six steps to accomplishing that: (1) Be sincere: do not promise anything that you cannot deliver. Forget about the benefits to yourself and concentrate on the benefits to the person or the team. (2) Know exactly what it is you want the other person (team) to do. (3) Be empathetic: ask people what it is that they really want. (4) Consider the benefits that person will receive from doing what you suggest. (5) Match those

benefits to the other person’s wants. (6) When you make your request, put it in a form that will convey to the other person that he/she will personally benefit. I know that my success with Tahitian Noni® International and the T.O.P.G.U.N.® organization is because of prayer and the team. How else could I go from this: A housing project in one of the worst neighborhoods in Atlanta.

Before Tahitian Noni®, International, Art and Valencia were mad. They owned a mortgage company, they were involved in another network marketing venture, while Art was doing police/detective work on the side. They were mad because they knew what they were capable of, but corporate America couldn’t provide them with the means to get there. They were mad; mad enough to do something about it. “My uncle initially piqued our interest in TNI,” states Valencia, “along with successful individuals such as Robert Dean.” Valencia and Art had previous success in the network marketing industry, but the success didn’t trickle down to all levels of their team. Art and Valencia knew there was a better system to provide lucrative benefits to every member of the team. Tahitian Noni® was what they had been looking for. “We believe that true success in network marketing can only be measured by the successes of the mem-

bers of your downline, not your upline. As they looked over the details about Tahitian Noni® they loved the extraordinary product and the plan to get everyone rich, “getting healthy while getting wealthy,” Valencia chimed. “There is no hype and no fluff, the plan just works,” stated Art. “Robert Dean stayed up until 3:00am working out a business plan with us. Then we made a visit out to corporate, where we discovered the true integrity of the company. Those were major factors in our decision,” commented Art. Today, Art and Valencia are Triple Diamond Pearls as The Mad Team, helping others who are mad about where they are at, get mad enough to make a difference and change their life. “Team first, everything else you do follows,” Art stated. “Help other people get what they want, and you always get what you want,” said Valencia, “Now that we are Triple Diamond Pearl, we want to teach and train others … We want a team of

We teach them about money and how to be an entrepreneur. Then we fund projects for them, so they can experience, firsthand, owning their own business.” Art reflected on some of the things that make his life so incredible now that he is involved with TNI. “One of the most rewarding experiences for me was refurnishing my mother’s house, creating top-to-bottom, her dream home. It was a total surprise for her. I had the whole house re-decorated while she was out. When she came home, all she could do was cry. I paid every penny in cash. Nothing feels better than that, that is why I am in this business.”

Like most people in this country I desired to live the American Dream. I pursued the traditional ways of accomplishing that dream: school, college (4+++ years) and finally corporate America. My dream was turning into a nightmare. I realized in my early 20’s that my thought process and aspirations were not the same as what I had been taught. My idea of financial freedom was through entrepreneurship. After being exposed to network marketing in 1991, I knew I had found my niche. After being with three companies and getting some great mentoring and training, it all came together for me in July 2001, when my childhood friend, Mr. Barry Byrd, shared this awesome opportunity with me. The last six years with Tahitian Noni® International and the T.O.P.G.U.N.® Team have been a true blessing. What makes this opportunity so special to me is to witness a lot of my

business associates that I was in other opportunities with and have known for over ten years become financially independent.

Triple Diamond Pearl Atlanta, GA. By Deborah Hardnett It has been great!!! Our lives have truly been enriched. Not only do we earn a strong five-figured monthly residual income, we have been able to travel to fabulous locations like Monte Carlo, Tahiti, and Hollywood, just to name a few.

“We can! We can create what we want to create, we can get what we want to have, and we can become what we want to become.” This is the motto that I live by. It was a few short years ago that this statement was actually confirmed in my spirit what I had always known since a child. I just hadn’t been able to articulate it or consciously implement it in my life.” Today, I can. It is that same thinking that attracted this powerful opportunity with the T.O.P.G.U.N.® Organization to my life. I was very fortunate to have a friend and business partner, Tony Fleming, to introduce me to the T.O.P.G.U.N.® Organization After 15 plus years of owning traditional businesses, that consisted of 2 cleaning services, an

event planning firm, a lawn service company, a real estate investment company, and other network marketing distributorships, my husband Kenneth and I, in May of 2003, seized this opportunity because of the ability to earn residual income. It has been great!!! Our lives have truly been enriched. Not only do we earn a strong five-figured monthly residual income, we have been able to travel to fabulous locations like Monte Carlo, Tahiti, and Hollywood, just to name a few. We both were able to leave corporate America, establish long lasting relationships with great people, and most importantly, spend quality time with our daughter, Zoë Elizabeth. She has never spent one day in a nursery and only recently

has began attending pre-school. I can take the time with Zoë to help cultivate her creativity. The best part about our business is we empower people to prosper. We succeed when we help others succeed. The more people we help build businesses, the more our business grows. We would be nothing or nowhere without the team. The team is the foundation of our business. We are fortunate to work with the best of the best of leaders from Georgia to Alabama, Florida to Louisiana, from South & North Carolina, Virginia to Maryland, from New Jersey to Nebraska, from every person building the business to every person drinking the juice, we owe it all to you.

When you’re given the chance, you must go for it! It’s such an exhilarating feeling when you just know that it’s YOUR season and not only that, but to be open to its remarkable possibilities, in spite of yourself, your fears and failures. It was a simple, humble, impromptu act of open-mindedness that caused a river of blessings to flow our way after receiving a call about yet “another” network marketing opportunity. Our experiences had been criminally disappointing in the past and we were wisely guarded and pummeled. We had actually begun to loathe the industry we’d previously loved and excelled in. Truth be told, we’d been galloping on the wrong three-legged horse for too long, desperately yurning for a dismount plan. Thankfully, we still had one left in us and an unquenchable desire to succeed triumphantly. So, when we finally looked at TNI with network marketing prodigy, Robert Dean, who’s Midas touch had already spun-off wealth,

not only for himself, but for scores of others -- we confidently stepped into our season and the blessings abound. In just a few short years, we were basking in success, our income soared and we gained an impressive array of business partners, plus, unforgettable international travels with our new family. From exquisite Monaco and lush Hawaii -- to the unspoiled islands of Tahiti -- and next year, the castles and country sides of Switzerland will have our handprints on them ... All five-star experiences courtesy of TNI. We have certainly found our dream MLM destination -- a home like none other in this remarkable industry. And if you could browse our charmed lives for just a day, you would see that the tremendous luxury of time freedom a couple of thirty-something-year-olds have been gifted, is truly a unique, early retirement present from God, that is well within anyone’s reach. Because our destiny will never be dependent on the 40/40 plan and because we will never

have to wait until we’re seventy to retire, we will never tire of asking others, “Has your opportunity afforded you the luxury of becoming close-minded?” We hope not, and invite you to look at TNI and T.O.P.G.U.N.®, where the leadership is exceptional and the spirit of comoradery and sustainable lifestyle is one you must experience for yourself -- in this season. You owe it to your family name. See You on the Beaches. Lawrence & Tamara Young

Triple Diamond Pearl Atlanta, GA “My goal is to share with others the possibilities that TNI offers,” explains the astonishingly successful Quinton Wiggins, who only a few years ago worked as a laborer for a car manufacturer. “I want to be an example,” he says, “a shining light of positive results so people will realize there are options in life if they have aboveaverage work ethics and a strong desire.” Quinton knew there was a way to allow his family “to experience the wealth & abundance of the world, without limitations or time constraints,” if he was willing to put his heart into it. It wasn’t until his first Tahitian Noni® International opportunity meeting in 2001, that Quinton knew exactly how he was going to accomplish that task. After the meeting, Quinton knew the TNI system was real and the success stories were tangible, he was in. “That’s when I kicked it into high gear,” Quinton exclaims. He implemented the T.O.P.G.U.N.® system of success and

With all the success he and his team have experienced in only a few, short years, Quinton’s one true passion is sharing the knowledge and experience he has with others, so they can see the same results he has.

I want them to be good stewards in their communities and abroad.” “I’m proud to be a part of TNI,” Quinton grins, “But I think I’m most proud of the fact that my Mom is proud of me.”

BILL&CAROLYNKIRTLEY “I hope people realize that if someone who’s 60 can make this work, then they can do it too, as long as they dream big, make a plan, and have the burning desire to reach their dream.”

Diamond Pearl Elite Jacksonville, FL Bill Kirtley’s career prior to TNI reads like a recipe for success: he graduated from the U.S. Military Academy, enjoyed prestigious positions in the corporate world, and co-founded a profitable advertising company. Yet Bill was anything but happy or satisfied. “I never had enough time for my family because I was a slave to my job,” he admits. After selling his advertising business, Bill’s interest turned to the network marketing industry. Surprisingly, Bill was anything but excited when his long-time friend, Fred Herzog, called to tell him about Tahitian Noni® Juice. “I laughed at him,” Bill recalled. But Fred’s persistence paid off, and Bill began telling others about Tahitian Noni® Juice. Small paychecks began arriving in Bill’s mailbox, which led him to take a trip to TNI corporate headquarters where he met the Founders and IPC Ken Roland. “That visit changed my whole life,” Bill exclaims. “That’s when

I started getting serious and I stopped laughing at Fred.” He continues, “When I met the Founders, I knew they had integrity. I decided then that I wanted to hitch my wagon to them.” Bill is quick to tell you that the one thing that has made all the difference in his business success is the relationships he has built. “Someone said to me, ‘You’re lucky you sponsored Robert Dean.’ But Robert and I developed a solid relationship first, so that when I told him about TNI, he was willing to listen.” Bill adds, “You see, this is a people business, not a juice business. Helping people and caring about them is what will build a strong foundation in your business.” Years ago, Bill heard someone talking about the law of giving and receiving – if you give, you will receive; if you help enough other people get what they want, you’ll get what you want. He recalls, “I really took that to heart. Fortunately, with

TNI I feel like I’m able to focus my energies and efforts on what I enjoy doing most, which is helping people.” Producing His Own Success.” Tahiti Tradewinds, Special Edition September, 2006, 42-42.

Diamond Pearl Elite Shrewsbury. PA After meeting Brandon, a wealthy, successful, kind 35-year old retiree, you would probably never guess his background is in microbiology. Like most people in corporate America, where Brandon spent 15 years of his life, retirement seemed so far away and real, focused time with his young daughter seemed nearly impossible. However, after saying yes to a Tahitian Noni® International opportunity call less than five years ago, Brandon walked out of corporate American, retired with unlimited wealth and now spends his days at the zoo with his daughter or helping teach others how live the same quality lifestyle. “I want others to understand, you don’t work for money, you have to reach past that mindset,” Brandon explains, “if money wasn’t involved you wouldn’t work.

JEFFREYBROOME The name of the game is getting your life back. It’s gaining control

Jeffrey Broome

Diamond Pearl Elite Jamaica Queens, NY “It’s a good product.” “It’s a very professionally ran, international company.” “They have a great vision.” Jeff was all compliments when it came to asking about Tahitian Noni®, International as a company. Each comment made it more evident that Jeff had done more than his fair share of research to know that about the company’s success. In the past, Jeff had filled his life with ventures in Real Estate investing, construction companies, and managing telecom, yet Jeff was always searching for something he could really believe in and something that would give him the compensation he deserved. “I found out about Tahitian Noni®, International through my cousin,” Jeff said, “I loved the ability everyone has

with TNI to be involved in a business, but nothing can beat their program to pursue residual income or the TNI compensation plan. It’s a company that just treats people well.” Today, empowered by the support of TNI and his Mad Team associates, Jeff thrives off of the idea that he can teach people, who are caught up in the same corporate structure he worked in for years, get out and get more with a product they can trust. “This is a company that isn’t concerned with taking money, it is concerned with bringing us money, everyday.” “This company allows people, not only to make money, anyone can make money, but we can teach you how to acquire wealth.” If hearing Jeff ’s enthusiasm for the

present doesn’t excite you enough, just wait until he starts talking about the future. “I see my partners as continued leaders … I am so excited to see the company go public, this is huge … and I see thousands of TNI cafes, more than Starbucks, more than McDonalds. This business is unstoppable.” As Jeff looks to the future, he describes the power he sees in the people who take advanage of it. “The name of the game is getting your life back. It’s gaining control. You grow through what you go through,” Jeff states, “You have to put yourself in a better position, to not only make things the best for you, but for the next generation. We can make it the biggest and the best for the future.”

DONNAALLEN

Remember Prosperity only comes through Preparation.

Triple Diamond Black Pearl Dallas, TX Millionaire Club Member My name is Donna Allen. I joined Tahitian Noni® International on June 15, 2002. There were a lot of things that happened in 2002, just to name you a few; I had exactly $313 in my bank account, I was going through a divorce, I was living with my sister and her family and my youngest sister passed away in September, only 90 days after I joined TNI. Joining TNI gave me hope that I had lost over the years prior to getting started with the company and I realize now that all the setbacks and challenges that I faced was preparing me for the success that I started to experience shortly after joining. Before the year ended, things started to turn around; I was reunited with my High School Sweetheart Terry who also joined the company in November and we were married on December 20, 2002. In February 2004, Terry and I purchased our first home which is now occupied by my son and his fiancé. We have purchased over 10 vehicles; most of them for our family and we built our second home which is what I dreamed of having.

I purchased a home for my mom who lives in Bogalusa and I’m beginning to see my childhood dream come true. I earned more income with TNI in my first 2 years than I earned in 10 years working as an accountant. I cannot take the credit for it myself because I am very proud to be partnered with several friends that are true leaders. Beverly Long, Lester Berry, Tammy Wright, Larrie Robinson, They are the reason for my success and because of them, I became T.O.P.G.U.N.’s® first Triple Diamond Black Pearl. You will see many of our team members on the Prosperity Page of the site but there are thousands that play an integral part in holding our team together that you will not see, but that doesn’t mean they are less important than anyone else. I have learned that success will come to you once you prepare for it. I remember Robert Dean telling me something that was so profound, it stays with me even today,“You have to become the person you are looking for, and then you will attract them.”

I believe that there’s a time and a season for everyone and everything. If I could put into words what it takes to become successful, I would say, “Have a genuine care for people, never give up on anyone, never prejudge and never forget to remain humble through it all.” One of my goals is to continue to become a testimony to others and let them know that as a team, we can help them accomplish the goals they set for themselves. The only thing that stands in the way of you reaching your goals and dreams is “Your I Quit Level.” When it seems like it’s not worth the battle; remember, “Prosperity comes through Preparation.” Life’s battles don’t always go to the strongest or fastest man, but sooner or later, the person who wins is the one who thinks they can. I’ll leave you will a quote from my favorite poem called “The Comfort Zone,” it says, “I used to have a comfort zone, where I knew I wouldn’t fail, The same four walls and busy work were really more like jail. I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before but stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.” It ends with, “If you are in a comfort zone afraid to venture out, remember ALL WINNERS were at one time filled with doubt. A step or two and words of praise, can make your dreams come true, reach for your future with Con-Fi-Dence, Success is waiting on You.” Remember Prosperity only comes through Preparation.

I would like to commend you for taking the time to look at something that could change your life financially, as it has done for me. When I first looked at this opportunity, I was definitely looking for a change in my life. I was trying to make ends meet. I found myself $80,000 in debt and had no choice but to file for bankruptcy. To get the lifestyle, solid financial security, and time freedom I truly wanted, I knew that I couldn’t follow the same path that 97% of all Americans choose. But, I did everything my parents suggested: Go to college, get that degree, and get a ”good” job with benefits! Yes, I did it anyway because that’s what you are taught to do in society. Before my “good” job, I was fortunate enough to play college hockey at the University of Michigan. Most of my friends and teammates went on to sign million-dollar NHL contracts. I was watching them live the lifestyle I wanted, while I was living paycheck to paycheck. That’s when I decided to look for an

opportunity in which I could truly be financially secure, an opportunity that would pay me year after year, even long after my former teammate’s NHL careers were over with! In May of 2001, I was very fortunate that Mrs. Heather Isham, along with Mr. Robert Dean, introduced me to Tahitian Noni®, International. TNI is a solid, documented company that has been blazing through numbers for over 10 years, with total sales topping over $4-billion! TNI has also paid out over $2-billion to people just like you and me, for contributing to their success. I started out with TNI part-time, and was able to leave my “good” job within 3 months. I am now able to work when I want, with people I enjoy, plus take exotic trips all over the world. In the next few months, I will surpass the $1-million dollar mark in career earnings! However, this is just the beginning and the best is yet to come. I challenge you to take a few minutes to explore your opportunities with an amazing company that can offer you and your family a healthier and wealthier lifestyle! TNI has given me the ability to say, yes or no because I want to, and not because I have to. That’s one heck of a feeling! Join our team today and let us help you fulfill your financial dreams!

After working in the Health Care Industry as a nurse for over 17 years, and owning a Locksmith company where you’re on call 24/7, we discovered the above statement to be true. We found ourselves frustrated, stressed out, over our head in bills, living from paycheck to paycheck with little time to enjoy our relationship with ourselves and our children. We were definitely in need of an opportunity. I was planning on going back to school to obtain a Masters Degree in Nursing, but realized that would take money (that we didn’t have), more time away from the family, as well as added stress from the increased responsibility of having a degree and managing more people. We thank God that my sister introduced us to Tahitian Noni® Juice in May of 2002. Although, I was very skeptical at first, I didn’t particularly care for the taste nor the cost, but I took notice of how her symptoms from Fibromyalgia for over 10 years had improved. Then I went to the beauty shop for my scheduled appointment and saw a bottle on the counter. When I finished laughing I discovered a list of conditions helped by drinking TNJ. My interest was piqued. I took the information with me to my second job and began sharing with my patient and his family how the juice had helped my sister and showed them the conditions helped sheet. They were excited and wanted 3 bottles. Well I didn’t consider myself a salesman, but I had enough sense to realize that there was opportunity in a bottle. I went back to the shop and enrolled with the owner, my sponsor Mrs. Martha Park. Kevin, was very supportive, but not convinced until he saw the second check. Then he said, “Baby, let’s roll”! We then began to travel from city to city wherever we could receive education and training on how to have a successful business.

A vision of success was painted. I was introduced to the System for the first time. I said to myself, we can do this. Shortly after arriving home from that trip we heard that the Master, Mr. Robert Dean himself would be in Dallas, TX. That was a 7 hour drive from our home, but a small price to pay to drive to get the knowledge we needed to have a successful business. After meeting Mr. Dean we were very impressed with his humility, kindness, and sincere desire to help us. After that trip, anytime we heard that Robert Dean was in Dallas, we would make that trip. I am thankful that those trips paid off. Our initial dream was to earn enough income to replace what I was earning from two jobs. That goal was accomplished in our first 10 weeks. Because of this amazing business we have had experiences that we never could have dreamed of accomplishing on our jobs. The time freedom that we now enjoy with each other and our children and two beautiful granddaughters, our relationships with our team and sideline leaders, a yearly six figure income, trips, trips, trips.

I was invited to attend a briefing that Robert Dean conducted in Dallas, Texas on June 15, 2002, by my dear friend Donna Allen. She simply asked me to attend the meeting so I could give her my honest opinion about the information being presented on Tahitian Noni® International. When I attended the meeting I had no intentions of getting involved with the company. I had actually told myself that I would not buy anything, and I definitely would not sign up to become a part of the company or get involved in any way. Out of respect for Donna, I simply agreed to do her a favor and at least check it out. To my surprise, I became an Independent Product Consultant on that same day, which was June of 2002 and my life has never been better. The main reason I got involved is because I wanted the products for me and my family, because we all needed the benefits of the Tahitian Noni® Juice. But, shortly after getting started with TNI, we discovered that not only did we physically benefit, which was a true blessing, but we received financial benefits as well. Within two years I was able to retire from my job of over 25 years of service, my finances are greater than I ever dreamed possible, and my husband and I have been to travel to exotic countries around the world. Tahitian Noni® is such a blessing. By profession, I am an educator. I spent the majority of my life going to school to get more education and help kids. I loved my profession and I had always been taught ,“the

more you learn, the more you earn”. I spent many years of my life going back to school to get more education, so I could get a better job. After earning advanced degrees I quickly discovered that you still work from paycheck to paycheck and someone else determines your worth. Attending the TNI meetings introduced me to people living lifestyles that I had only dreamed about. Believe me, it was hard for me to even image that anyone could earn the kind of incomes that Robert Dean showed us that day. In fact I told Donna, that he couldn’t be telling the truth with the kind of incomes he shared with us, because he had only been in the business 13 months and he earned more money in one month than I earned in 6 months. It was unbelievable and I was in awe! I made a decision on that day to step out on faith and to get out of my comfort zone so I could take control of my future. If I can do this, anybody can do it! I don’t have any special talents. I can’t sing like Whitney Houston, I can’t dance like Janet Jackson and Hollywood wasn’t looking

for burned out teacher, but I could follow instructions, I was coachable, and I wanted to be successful. Choice, not change will determine your destiny, so I encourage everyone that I meet to light the fire within their spirit. Tahitian Noni® is a win/win and with a team like T.O.P.G.U.N.®, and its awesome leaders and training, everyone who has a desire to achieve can go all the way to the top. TNI and T.O.P.G.U.N.® are creating millionaires and you can be one too! This is one of my ,“What the mind can conceive…and the heart can believe…you can achieve”, Napoleon Hill.
