  6. 6. cover story JImmY SmITH: LIvIng And SharIng THe Dream YOu’D THINK TurNING 80 in March would have caused Isagenix® Top Income Earner Jimmy Smith to pause and take some time off to enjoy his success. But rather than lying on a secluded beach somewhere or traveling the country in his 40-foot luxury motor home, Jimmy is on the same mission as always — to change lives and help others fulfill their dreams. “I’m just getting started. You haven’t seen anything yet,” says Jimmy. “When you have this knowledge in your head and have worked as hard as I have for so little (money) for so long, I want to share this with everybody I can. I can’t sit home and watch television or take a nap with this in my head.” Jimmy is passionate about sharing what he has learned about network marketing over the past 20 years and he’ll talk to anyone who will listen. Jimmy is a 9-Star Golden Circle, multi-million dollar earner* who has more than 150,000 people in his team with an average of 300 to 400 additional Associates joining each day. He earns more than $2 million each year* from his Is- agenix business and is working on maxing out his second re-entry position. But don’t let all of his success intimi- date you. He started his business just like many others: a man who left a stable, full-time job to take a leap of faith and try network marketing. “If my creator asked me to write this script down when I was in my 20’s, 30’s or 40’s, I couldn’t have writ- ten this,” says Jimmy of his life. “It’s just beyond my wildest dreams.” So what could a man who has everything possibly want for his birthday? Even though he celebrated the milestone occasion with family, friends and his Isagenix team, there’s still one thing he wants — the chance to share with others what he has learned. In person, he’s a soft-spoken, humble man who doesn’t brag about his earnings, but wants others to see the potential of Isagenix and make their own dreams a reality. * Earning levels for Isagenix® Independent Associates that appear in this publication should not be construed as representative of fixed or typical income earned with an Isagenix business, nor are they intended to represent that other Associates will eventually achieve the same level of income.
