4. Cover Story
They say opposites attract, and such is certainly the case for business partners, and friends,
Mélanie Charron and Mai Nguyen. Mélanie is a self-professed dreamer; a visionary with great ideas,
immeasurable expectations, and a perpetual desire to think bigger. Mai is a realist, a go-getter
with a technical touch who likes structure and planning. Together, these two women are setting an
extraordinary pace and marking the remarkable.
W What Mélanie and Mai do have in common is, of course,
Immunotec, and how the business opportunity was
presented to each of them at a time when they were looking
for greater fulﬁllment. Mélanie, 31, was a successful
business entrepreneur and Mai, 34, had dedicated herself

more than $6,000.
Both Mélanie and Mai were carefully reluctant at ﬁrst
about network marketing. They researched the company Mélanie is Mai’s Sponsor, and says her approach to her
and the products, and when they were sufﬁciently convinced, business, as well as her team, is pretty straightforward.

members of their own team. Everybody is created equal in our group,
each with his or her own strengths. Each player has their own dreams,
some big, some small; my role is to make sure they achieve them, no
matter their size,” said Mélanie.
As Sponsor, Mélanie continues to challenge Mai, each time setting
the bar a little higher, daring her to step out of her comfort zone –
and to dream – bigger. Each time, Mai rises to the challenge. “Mélanie
inspires me, and deﬁes me to develop on a personal level, as well as
professionally,” said Mai. “I have discovered things about myself that
I never knew were possible, and I am accomplishing things that I can
be proud of.”
Mélanie insists that one of the most important elements of a strong,
united team is energy and synergy. “One of the ways I ensure that my
team is strong is by attending events. Whether we are supporting new
Distributors or learning new training skills together, it’s important that
we unite as a group, we learn as a group, and we recognize achievement
as a group.” And both Mélanie and Mai insist that prevention is the
key to growing old healthily, as opposed to simply growing old.
This closely-knit support system has been a positive inﬂuence for Mai,
allowing her to initiate and keep the fast pace she has demonstrated
thus far. And, she says, the business tools are designed to train
Distributors to think, act, and sell like business people – and quickly.
“The Success Guide has been an incredible resource for me,” said Mai.
“Not only has it helped me set short and long-term goals, but it has
explained how to reach them. It’s the kind of tool that makes sure that
anybody who wants to succeed, will succeed.”
As with any rising Distributor, Mélanie and Mai have had their share
of questions along the way. And they did what they tell their downline
to do – they talked to their Sponsor or upline. “Lucien Labarre and
Céline Plourde have been incredible role models for us,” said Mélanie.
“They provided us with the foundation of our principles that have
grounded our team and allowed us to prosper. They were patient when they
needed to be, and they pushed us when we needed the encouragement.”
Mélanie and Mai met outside of Immunotec, but developed their
close business partnership while on a spiritual journey and traveling
on a route to self-discovery. They are a deﬁnite force to be reckoned
with – but more importantly, they are proof that great leaders are
created every day, that powerful women can excel in an industry
with no glass ceiling, and that friendships can blossom in the most

So often we are asked how Immunocal/HMS 90 ﬁts into the world of dairy science and whey

techniques are not employed by other manufacturers whose products
have been seriously degraded by the time they reach your body. Notice
that you will generally not ﬁnd warnings against heating other proteins,
because they are most often already seriously broken down.
During the manufacturing process, both the fat and lactose content
are removed. This allows even the most lactose-intolerant individual
to consume our product safely. For those rare people who have a true

The Direct Selling Association (DSA) has been successful in
its arguments that a proposed Federal Trade Commission
(FTC) rule, known as the “Business Opportunity Rule” that
would have essentially forced American sellers of a business
opportunity to wait seven days before signing-up a new
prospect, was too broad in its scope and would
have disadvantaged legitimate direct sales and
multilevel marketing companies.
Originally designed to protect consumers from bogus
business opportunities, requirements of the new rule would
have included forcing sellers of a business opportunity to
make certain disclosures and would have required a seven-day
waiting period before a prospective buyer could sign a
contract. The rule caused real concern for business-building
Distributors who saw it as an unnecessary impediment to
Imagine the scenario: the Distributor plans a business
opportunity meeting, books a hotel room, invests time and
money in promoting the event, trains his team to make
presentations, gets a great turn-out and a very positive
response to his sell. Members of the audience are asked if they
would like to sign up as Distributors and ten enthusiastic
individuals raise their hands. The air is electric as the
meeting leader says: “Terriﬁc! I’ll call you in a week and
we’ll ﬁnalize the paperwork.” Drop off rate? Signiﬁcant.
In its statement, the FTC allowed that “the burdens (of
the initial rule) that would be imposed upon legitimate
business operations would not appear to be justiﬁed by
possible beneﬁts to consumers.” Legitimate direct selling
companies, such as DSA member organizations, will
now be exempted from the revised rule. Joseph Mariano,
DSA Executive Vice President, pledges to continue to monitor
developments and work with both member companies and
the FTC until the process reaches a conclusion.
Immunotec President Jim Northrop received news of
the revision with satisfaction. A former Chairman of the
DSA Board of Directors, Northrop is a strong supporter
of the association’s advocacy role. “I am glad to hear that
Immunotec Distributors will not be disadvantaged by
an over-zealous regulation and that the DSA has been Immunotec’s commitment to ethical
successful in its lobbying efforts on their behalf,” he said.
“Immunotec’s commitment to ethical business practices business practices and superior customer

WORKING THROUGH PRICE OBJECTIONS There are many reasons why customers object to a price,
Anyone who represents a product line will come across here are a few:
customers who express concern over the price of a product. 1. Customers often don’t understand the value of our
As Distributors of Immunotec products you want to be products, and therefore don’t really know what a good
ready to help potential customers if they are concerned price would be.
about our price. 2. Customers may not have a reference point since they do
not shop for our product line. They know when gasoline
or milk prices are too high, but have no comparisons to
make with Immunocal/HMS 90.
3. It’s all a game. You might call it a hobby. Some customers
just love to negotiate. In some cases they are just testing
you to see if you want to play the negotiating game.
Here are some tips on working through price objections:
1. Validate the objection, but don’t apologize or act
uncomfortable. Our product line is truly remarkable
and well worth it.
“I understand your concern about our price, I’ve been
able to help quite a few customers understand the value of
2. Ask questions to gain understanding. You will need to
know more before you offer a solution.
“Do you know of any similar products that perform like ours?”
“How much do you think our product should cost?”
3. Offer a solution that will help change the customer’s
perspective. Give the customer some comparables and
help them see why our products are the better choice.
“Our product will cost a couple dollars per day to improve
and maintain your immune system, how much is that worth
to you? Since Immunocal is food for your immune system
you should consider our product as part of your family’s
nutritional (food) budget.”
How does Immunocal compare with:
Cup of specialty coffee
Bag of chips
2 soft drinks
“How much is it worth to you to improve your immune
system and reduce the risk of illness for you and your family?”
4. Ask for the purchase again. Once you’ve helped the
customer understand the value of our product ask again
if they are ready to get started.

bring the Immunotec family together to
recognize accomplishment, learn from
our collective experience, announce some
Message exciting developments, and have fun.”
from the President
Teamwork is the overriding theme of this month’s Focus and,
in my experience, teamwork is the core element to successfully
growing our kind of business. The essence of teamwork is to
have everyone “singing off the same song sheet.” That is, having
a clear and consistent set of objectives and a straightforward plan
to achieve those objectives.
Together, we have a huge opportunity to grow the Immunotec
business during the next months and years… this enterprise
literally has the potential to be a $500 million company in
North America, with even greater opportunity internationally. In
order for us to achieve that goal, we need to capture the hearts
and minds of many, many more Distributors, showing them how
to use Immunotec as a vehicle to achieve their dreams and goals.
This requires all of us to educate them about our simple success
system, which will allow them not only to succeed themselves,
but also to readily show others how to succeed. Immunotec’s
success structure includes the Success Guide, Leadership Schools,
and Set the Pace events. Those who are following the system
and are actively engaging in sponsoring events on a local basis
are experiencing growth exceeding 20% this year. I would urge
everyone to embrace this simple approach, recognizing that this
is a “face to face” business where we can sponsor many people
who are looking for ways to enhance their life, both in terms of
wellness and wealth.
I am delighted to announce this year’s annual event being held
in Atlantic City. I look forward to the opportunity to bring the
Immunotec family together to recognize accomplishment, learn from
our collective experience, announce some exciting developments,
and have fun. I hope that each and every one of you will plan to be
there with us and I look forward to meeting those of you whom I
have not yet met, and reconnecting with those of you I have.
On a ﬁnal note, there are only two months remaining to qualify
for the 2008 President’s Circle cruise. Looking at past years, some
people have achieved the trip goal in less than two months.
Apply the system and join me in the Caribbean in November!
The cruise is the icing… the cake is building a winning team
which will provide you with group growth and residual income
for months and years to come.

When Wayne Holloway realized that he was making $36,000 a year, working four hours
a week as an independent Distributor, he resigned from his job as a design engineer at
the local power company and made a commitment to his Immunotec business, boosting
his hours to 20 per week. His earnings grew to $72,000 within the ﬁrst year.
His brother Hollis, who had recently retired, saw Wayne’s growing business, and came
