Josalyn and Erik Dean’s family-owned, hospitality equipment business sold product through a 400-member distribution network that connected them to 15,000 hotels the world over.
They traveled the globe and operated a successful leveraged income business model for decades and during that time were often prospected by network marketers. But, as Erik puts it, “We said no for 20 years because, quite frankly, the products and services lacked differentiation.” That is…until Nerium. “Nerium is different. It stands alone. It can’t be copied. It’s a game changer in the industry,” Erik says.
The Dean’s were impressed, not only with the differentiation of Nerium’s products, but also with the company’s approach to business building. “One of the things that most people hate about the industry is that nobody wants a garage full of product that nobody wants,” Erik says. Nerium changed all that with free inventory.
“The best thing is we get the inventory free,” he says about Nerium’s inventory replacement program. “So you’ve got a product that essentially can’t be copied and we’ve never had to go back to the company once in two and a half years to find more inventory than we’ve had in our house. It’s a perfect model.”
The Nerium model, the Dean’s say, allows anyone to join. “Our audience is everybody and anybody with skin. We don’t prejudge. Our only job is to show the playbook. We show everybody the playbook and they make their choice,” Erik says.
As more and more of those prospects became Brand Partners, the Dean’s Nerium team ballooned, earning them a $375,000 Live Better Bonus and long-term financial freedom.
“The money is there, but why take your foot off the pedal of this machine and model. The company is still expanding, so there’s no stopping,” Erik says. He’s motivated to give his children more choices down the road. “It’s all about having choices in life and making a difference.”
“We don’t have to do this anymore. We have good residual income. But I love to help other people succeed. I love it when one of our team members gets a Lexus or a $50,000 bonus. I love helping them improve their lives,” Josalyn says.
“We really pride ourselves in working with every single Brand Partner that really wants this. We reach out to everyone on our team. It doesn’t matter where they are, what level they are. We are helping everyone.”
By helping others to reach their goals, the Dean’s believe they will reach theirs. After all, Josalyn says, “Success is a team sport.”
