MLM Legend Chuck Hanson Joins Valentus

Chuck Hanson has made millions in Network Marketing and this is his what he had to say:

Let me share a story with you about a FRUSTRATED business owner that didn’t know he was being RECRUITED.

It was 1987 and a good friend asked me to join him for dinner but before dinner we were going to stop at a cocktail party.  Little did I know he was taking me into a party with the TOP 10% of the income earners with NSA.  He made a comment to me about “feel free to mingle – these people all make LOTS OF MONEY and you’ll meet some interesting people’.

Being a people person I started to mingle – I met this one old boy and I mentioned to him what my buddy said about the people making lots of money.  He wasn’t shy at all when he said “yes, yes they do – I make about $70,000’ – I laughed and said I make a lot more than that and was about to walk away – when he said YOU MAKE MORE THAN $70,000 A MONTH?’  I spun around and said – excuse me – what did you just say?  He said I make $70,000 a MONTH but there are lots of people that make way more than I do’.  Well, they had me at hello – the rest of the night was electric.  Needless to say, I was in hook line and sinker to the tune of $35,000.

Early that next morning I got home and my wife met me at the door.  I told her all about the meeting, the people, the money and then some more about the money.  I explained that I was going to sell our 16-year-old advertising agency and dive head first into NETWORK MARKETING.

She was totally supportive ‘“ OVER MY DEAD BODY’!!  Well I had my work cut out but I was determined – you see they had my check for $35K.  After a few hours she gave in under THREE CONDITIONS.

I said – YES DEAR what are they?  1) You can’t talk to any of our friends.  2) You can’t spend any money doing this stupid thing.  3) You can’t talk to anyone that ever might be our friend.  Of course, I AGREED and went to bed with dreams of all the money I was going to make.


I had flown and driven all over the US going to trainings as I was trying to SELL WATER FILTERS.  I sucked at selling water filters.  My first check came – yes a check in the US MAIL – it was like $40 – my wife opened the envelope and then handed me the check.  I knew where this conversation was going.  I begged for more time – just give me another 90 days.

\Then I met JEFF R – although he was much younger he took me under his wing, guess he felt my pain.  He asked me to explain what I did on a daily basis.  I told him in great detail about SELLING WATER FILTERS – he looked, smiled and said STOP ALL OF THAT NONSENSE NOW and don’t you ever try to sell another water filter.  Now I was really confused.

He trained me HOW TO RECRUIT & BUILD A TEAM.  I went on to make millions with that company.  I’ll never forget my wife saying when she opened an envelope with a 5 figure check – I’m so glad I talked you into Network Marketing.  I just smiled and said – me too.

The past 31 years have been good times, great times and sad times.  The good times were when we were making a quarter of a million a month living a rock star lifestyle with nothing to worry about except what were we going to do with all this money.  My wife loved the lifestyle and well so did I and the 4 children we were raising and taking on vacation all over the world as I did events.

My organization was doing tens of millions in monthly sales and I had topped 400,000 people.  We were ROCKIN.  We had homes on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman, a huge home in Austin, Texas on Lake Travis and I was building a home in Evergreen, CO.  Life could not have been better.  Then in a moment everything changed – the company we were with had filed for bankruptcy protection and informed all us that there would be NO MORE CHECKS.  That was it – GONE – 400,000 people, huge checks all vanished.


After recovering from the shock two years later I was determined to do it again.  It was time to go back to work – my wife was getting sick of me hanging around the house 24/7.  We had sold the Texas house and the Penthouse in Grand Cayman and were living in Colorado.

During my search for a company I seemed to always be attracted to STARTUP companies. I fell into the START UP trap over and over again.  I heard someone explain the definition of INSANITY ‘“ which was to do the same things over and over while expecting different results and I said you know what ‘“ THATS ME!!

The last 3 decades have been one amazing story after the next ‘“ whether it was being part of the team and running at the Indianapolis 500 or offshore unlimited hydroplane boat races there was always something going on.

Then on May 20th, 2018 my life changed.  I was invited to listen to a call that DAVE JORDAN, who is the CEO of VALENTUS was doing about a new WEIGHT LOSS COFFEE he was introducing.  Well had it not been RICK JERRELS and DAVE JORDAN asking me to listen and if they had been talking about anything other than WEIGHT LOSS I probably would not have paid any attention.

You see I was the heaviest I had ever been in my life ‘“ 207 and busting out of my largest size wardrobe 38’ waist ‘“ looking for a EASY way to drop some weight ‘“ so they had a willing suspect.  I listened and heard all of these amazing weight loss stories.  I called Dave and Rick back after the call and told them I seldom of ever believe testimonials and wanted to try the product myself.  On May 26thmy product arrived, and I started drinking 2 cups of coffee every morning ‘“ just like Ive done forever ‘“ I just switched brands ‘“ SLIMROAST OPTIMUM instead of STARBUCKS. I lost 9 lbs the first week.  Its now been 90 days and Ive lost 25 lbs and inches from my waist ‘“ now a 34’ waist ‘“ my weight is 182 and Im going to 175 and down to a 32’ waist when all is said and done ‘“ LOVE what SLIMROAST OPTIMUM has done for me.

I then flew to SIOUX FALLS, SD to meet with Dave Jordan and really do my due diligence ‘“ but, I was sold on Valentus before I went to visit Dave ‘“ but that was all I needed to push me 100% over the top.  I made a decision to build my last team with Valentus.  WHY?  Because they are NOT a START-UP ‘“ they have a 4-year track record of success and it is owned by a great guy ‘“ who wants everyone to WIN and is doing everything humanly possible to make that happen.

Ive been around lots of owners over the past 3 decades, but I can tell you that DAVE JORDAN is a different and rare breed.  Im so excited about the future ‘“ imagine me being excited after 3 decades ‘“ now thats exciting.
