Today I will be sharing with you a little bit about Herbalife, from how the company got
started 33 years ago, to where the company is today. You will also hear testimonial about
Herbalife® products and the business opportunity.
You are going to hear about people, sharing with you their personal product or business
success story, Herbalife® nutrition products do not diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any
disease. They simply provide good nutrition for the body, and the stories you hear should
be based on approved product claims. When the body receives good nutrition, it reacts
in a positive way. In terms of the business opportunity, some Distributors may share
information about how much they earn from their Herbalife businesses. However,
those incomes are applicable to those individuals and are not average. You can find
average financial performance data in the business opportunity section on
www.StartHerbalife.com. Whether you start part time or full time, your success depends
on how hard you are willing to work in order to achieve the results you want. Like
anything in life, it’s about hard and honest work. Now, let’s get started!

33 Years of Changing people’s Lives Using
An extensive questionnaire generated responses from more
than 200 U.S. Herbalife Independent Members about their
weight-loss programs and results. They reported weight loss
ranging from 4 pounds to 167 pounds and a reduced body
mass index (BMI) of 1.5 points to 24.1 points, suggesting that
consumption of Herbalife® products is associated with weight
loss and improvement in BMI in those ranges.
Statement of average
Paid by Herbalife to
United States members
People become Herbalife Members for a number of reasons. The majority (73%)(1) primarily join us to receive a
wholesale price on products they and their families enjoy. Some wish to earn part-time money, wanting to give direct
sales a try and are encouraged by Herbalife’s low start-up costs (at their option, a Mini Herbalife Member Pack [HMP]
at $57.75 or full HMP at $89.55) and money-back guarantee(2). Others are drawn to Herbalife because they can be
their own boss and can earn rewards based on their own skills and hard work.
Whatever the motivation, an Herbalife Membership is something like a gym membership: results vary with the time,
energy and dedication you put into it. Anyone considering an active Membership needs to understand the realities of
direct selling. It is hard work. There is no shortcut to riches, no guarantee of success. However, for those who devote
the time and energy to develop a stable base of customers and then mentor and train others to do the same, the
opportunity for personal growth and an attractive part-time or full-time income exists. Moreover, unlike other
businesses, there are minimal start-up costs in beginning your Herbalife Membership. There is no need for a Member
to spend significant amounts of money on sales aids or other materials. In fact, Herbalife’s corporate policy
discourages the use of such sales aids, especially in the first few months of a Membership.
The majority of Herbalife’s Independent Members (71%) have not sponsored another Member and are therefore
“single-level” Members. Single-level Members benefit from buying Herbalife® products at a preferred price for their
consumption and that of their families, and for many this is the only benefit they seek. Some may also be retailing
products for a profit and this profit is not included in any of the compensation figures below.
Some Members (29%) have decided to sponsor others to become Herbalife Members. In that way, they may seek to
build and maintain their own downline sales organizations. They are not paid anything for sponsoring new Members.
They are paid solely based on product sales to their downline Members for their own consumption or for retail to
others. This multilevel compensation opportunity is detailed in Herbalife’s Sales & Marketing Plan, which is available
to all Members online at www.MyHerbalife.com.
For potential Members to make an informed decision, we offer the following chart to show the different ranges of
average gross compensation that Herbalife pays to its Members. The figures below do not include any
retail/wholesale profit that a Member makes from selling Herbalife® products to others nor do these figures include
expenses incurred by a Member in the operation or promotion of his or her business. Such business expenses can
vary widely. They might include advertising or promotional expenses, product samples, training, rent, travel,
telephone and Internet costs, and miscellaneous expenses. The compensation received by the Members in this chart
is not necessarily representative of the gross compensation, if any, that any particular Member will receive. These
figures should not be considered as guarantees or projections of your actual gross compensation or profits. Success
with Herbalife results only from successful product sales efforts, which require hard work, diligence and leadership.
Your success will depend upon how effectively you exercise these qualities.
The compensation chart below indicates that 434,125 Members (88%) received no payments from Herbalife
during 2012. However, this chart does not include amounts earned by Members on their sales of Herbalife
products to others.
Additionally, this chart does not include the benefit to Members buying Herbalife products at a preferred price
for their consumption and that of their families. Based on the company’s survey, 73%(1) of individuals became
Members primarily for this benefit.
51.0% of all sales leaders as of February 1st, 2011, requalified by February 1st, 2012 (including 34.3% of first
time sales leaders).
The majority of those Members who earned in excess of (USD)100,000 in 2012 had reached the level of
Herbalife’s President’s Team. During 2012, 47 US Members joined the level of President’s Team. They
averaged 9 years as an Herbalife Member before reaching President’s Team, with the longest being 20 years
and the shortest being less than three years.
