Going into these events with my GNC family, we know our booth will be a big draw. It always is. Offering samples of multi-vitmains, fish oil, meal replacements and protein shakes we find ourselves busy all day while some vendors are left wondering where their customers are. Although we know we will be a hit, we never know just how many lives we touch until the event comes to an end. That was the case again this weekend.
I would be lying if I said people aren't excited to get free samples- trust me, they are. But what they are even happier to get is an answer to a question that has been haunting them, sometimes for years. It often starts with a seemingly innocent comment or question: "Will this curb my hunger?", "Do you have anything that will help me lose weight?", "A friend told me about this product, does it work?" It takes an ear to hear the words coming out of their mouths, but a brain to hear what they are ACTUALLY asking: "Can you help me?". A chance meeting between two people leading to the clarification of permanent fat loss and dispelling of nutrition myths is a freeing and empowering experience. Seeing the tears in someone's eyes as they are pouring their heart out to you and the relief and excitement when they realize that they NOW have the answers that they have been longing for is absolutely priceless. I am so thankful for the opportunity I have to help those around me. Thank you GNC for affording me this amazing opportunity to help change people's lives. Live Well!
