Important message about the future of our Body Alive Sites

Hello Team,
We are pleased to announce a new direction for the Body Alive Sites.  We are grateful for the purpose they have served over the last 2 years.  Soon BodyAlive.com this is where you will go in order to connect with our Share it Forward Academy Business Training and to also show your potential business builder who your team is and what we have all collectively achieved.  For now, we will leave it the way it is as we know that some of you have placed this site on your brochures and business cards and such.   The only change for now is that we must disable the "ordering feature" of necessity.  Unfortunately there have been a few people who have mistakenly taken too long to process orders that have come in, which leaves people waiting for their product for quite some time, making us look bad.  We can't afford that kind of a first impression on new customers.

You can still use the site to promote Isagenix, just make sure that you skillfully follow up (within 48 hours) with the people whom you sent there, this is essential whether the site takes orders or not.   If you would like to use your corporate site then we encourage you to do so as we are now able to custom build the sites in our back office to meet our needs.   I like a much more simplified version.  You can see how I customized mine here:  www.esco.isagenix.com  Notice the videos that I strategically chose and the products that I chose to promote.  If people do sign up here, they are automatically entered into the tree, wherever you previously specified.   I also used my personal domain to forward there, making it even easier for people to remember, www.seanescobar.com

We also encourage all of you to jump on the company's promotion of "You Plus Two, Them Plus Two," utilizing the 30 day system.  We can show people how to easily get $150 back in their pockets!  It's a no brainer as we are saving people money, helping them see the opportunity and most importantly building support around our cleansers!

We will always be a Product Result Driven Team, that is our motivation, helping people.  You can build a wildly successful business while remaining focused on the Mission of Enriching People's lives with good health.

We like the companies new simplified site www.isagenixbusiness.com.  Again, focus on the 30 day system and most of the time you will want to start people on the 9 day cleanse within that 30 day system for the fast power packed results!.   If it is a couple doing it together we suggest that they get 1 30 day and add a "Fast Start Cleanse Pak with Snacks" (which is 2 bottles of cleanse and 1 snack)  That way both spouses can do a 9 day and still have a couple weeks of maintenance products each to boot!  Again, this is a no brainer.

We are grateful for the simplified message that Isagenix has been adopting.  This is a simple business to build.  Go to www.isagenixbusiness.com.  Make out your list of people you know.  Contact them with your IsaBuddy once interest has been generated, teach them how they can save over 50% on a 30 day system.   You can always resort to a 9 day if needed, so naturally you want to be sensitive to the persons needs.  Still, can't think of anyone who wouldn't take a 30 day over a 9 day if they can get it for $10 less and still get about 3 weeks worth of additional products.  Then shoot for Crystal Executive.  Simple Simple Simple.  

We love you,
The Escobar Group

Help New People Save $150 on a 30-Day System!

The Flyer for this has been posted in the Body Alive Biz Support Group on Facebook.  


Meet a Rising Star Audrey Kirnon!



This From our new IsaFamily Member Audrey!  She's in our Facebook group so please do say hello.  You'll be hearing about Audrey more in the future, same goes for Misty Easler, and Eric Daniels.  I can guarantee you that!  

"Hi IsaFamily! You might have seen my post last week about my Dad last week and how well he's doing...now for my own awesome 90 day testimonial and results. I am ECSTATIC about the renewed energy and zest for life Isagenix has given me! I was in a terrible car accident two years ago that resulted in three surgeries within months on both my ankles and right shoulder. In addition to the surgeries, I still had torn cartilage in my hip, 6 herniated discs in my back and neck, loss of some vision and hearing, sciatica, cracked teeth, nerve damage and a bunch of other injuries. I was in constant discomfort and had difficulty sleeping practically every night. I then received 18 steroid injections in my spine to "help" ease the discomfort. Unfortunately, they only temporarily masked the symptoms, but contributed to a new dysfunction. Trauma + inactivity + steroids + lack of sleep = adrenal fatigue. Yep, within months I literally started swelling and gaining a LOT of weight. I packed on over 60lbs. and felt horrible ALL the time. Here's the real kicker...I was an fit, active personal trainer on my way to work when the car accident happened!! Going from being a fitness professional for over 13 years and an athlete most of my life to now existing inside a body I didn't recognize and seemed to have no control over, was short of psychological torture. I tried a myriad of holistic supplements, purchased pre-packaged foods, spent a lot of money and cried a lot of tears because nothing worked...until Isagenix. By the second week I noticed my back wasn't hurting as much and I could do simple tasks, like bend over and brush my teeth, without discomfort. I began to sleep better and noticed I had energy throughout the day and didn't need several cups of coffee to keep me awake. By the next month, I was working out again, feeling stronger, focused and hopeful that I not only will get my body "back", but it will be a new and improved version! I'm also pleased to report that I am now jogging after my foot surgeon told me I'd never run again. I could keep going about each and every amazing thing that is healing and recovering, but I will end here and truthfully state that Isagenix has literally changed my life! Thank you to my coach and new-found sister/friend Misty Easler for being with me every step of this journey. Thank you to Jo-Ann DiLorenzo and Susan Rothman for supporting me in tweaking the system for my needs. And a final thank you to Sean Anthony Escobar for your encouragement and love through the miles. I still have a significant amount to release to get to my goal weight, but like they say, "I'm not where I want to be, but I'm darn sure not where I used to be!" xoxo, Audrey Kirnon"

IsaBody Finalist Tiff Dodge's Entire Story!


Let's all get behind Tiff!  
We received IsaBody Finalist Tiff Dodge's permission to share her story in its entirety, she sees how she can uplift others and make a difference.  She is so authentic, I love that about her.  She's going to bless so many lives. Here's what she said, "I appreciate your sensitivity to the matter, but do feel free to share the story in its entirety  to whoever you feel. The Lord has been prompting me for quite some time now to open up, but I have been hesitant because of my fear of coming off as arrogant and bragging, and I didn't want all the "sympathy attention."  It was what it was, and I have moved forward in my life.  I don't dwell on it, and I didn't want others to.  I am now ready and willing to share.  I count it a blessing to have been able to share it with you and your family, because I know your reach is much farther than my own."  You can find Tiff on facebook by searching for "Tiff Dodge Isabody"

Disclaimer: The purpose of sharing this story is not to seek for sympathy, pity, or recognition. I share my story because as the Dalai Lama once said, "Our prime purpose in this life is to help others." I share with the hope that perhaps my story may fortify another who is searching for the strength to overcome their tribulations. None are exempt from the trials and pains of mortality. It is a frequently believed misconception that having trials makes us weak. On the contrary, it is our trials that make us strong. The strength we gain from trials should be used to help others to bear their own. It should not be hidden in an attempt to conceal the fact that we are now, or have already, experienced hardships. We often try to convince ourselves that our trials are unique, that "no one else could possibly know what I am going through," that "I am strong enough to do this on my own," and that accepting help somehow makes us inadequate. Somewhere in our mind we are told that making our trials known to others somehow makes us weaker or less "perfect" than everyone else. We want to believe that "this type of thing doesn't happen to people like me." But the truth is that it takes more strength to say "I need help" than it does to pretend like you don't. We are not strong when we try to disguise our need of assistance. In actuality we inhibit each other from fulfilling our purpose in this life--to lift and help others. So it is that I share my story; to let others know even the "strong" go through hell, and even the weak can make it out. I am not the first to experience despair, and I won't be the last. I share my story in hope that someone who reads it will know that they are not alone; that others have gone before them, and they survived. I share in the hopes that my story might lift another--even if it is only high enough to get a glimpse of the light at the end. I share to let others know, there are people out there waiting, and wanting to help. 

I am a control freak. I grew up a hard-nosed, determined athlete that thought I could do anything I wanted, no matter how hard it might be to achieve. I was known and recognized for my strength physically and mentally. Although I was small (5'3), I was confident and knew that I was in control of my own destiny. My "controlling spirit" helped me to prove I was strong enough to play with the big kids. It earned me four varsity athletic letters, an athletic scholarship to a prestigious college, Bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and Secondary Education, and a scholarship to Graduate School in Washington, DC. 

I graduated with my Masters degree at the top of my class. I felt on top of the world--the future filled with unlimited possibilities. By all definitions, I was a "happy, successful individual." Then, a few days after graduation, I experienced a traumatic experience that sent me instantaneously spiraling into a deep depression, facing relentless anxiety. For weeks I was incapacitated--unable to sleep, eat, or leave my room. For days I sat expressionless on the edge of my bed, rocking back and forth, trying to convince myself to not carry out the suicidal thoughts in my head. Alcohol and self-mutilation became my tools of suppression. Eventually I succumbed to the idea that death would be less painful than what I was experiencing. After attempting suicide, I was placed on multiple medications to relieve the anxiety and depression. However, the anguish and feelings of worthlessness did not desist. Even with the medications and self-stimulation, memories of the trauma I had experienced were triggered by everything I saw, heard, or smelled. It was too much for me to bear. After another near attempt of taking my life, I was diagnosed with PTSD. Even more meds were added to my daily regimen. I felt like a walking pharmacy. I now relied completely on synthetic chemicals to function day to day. Without them, I couldn't control my thoughts or actions. With them, I was demoralized. No matter how you rolled the dice, "strong" was no longer an appropriate adjective to describe who I had become. 

I thought if I could get off the medications it would prove I was back in control; that I was strong again, but each attempt to rid myself of the chemicals proved to be a failure, and brought repercussions that caused more harm than good, often sending me deeper into the pit of desolation. Being on so many medications fueled my feelings of despair and helplessness. The fact that I had no control over these feelings made them multiply. It ate at my entire being, more or less paralyzing me. The one attribute that had brought me so much happiness and success in life, my sense of control, had vanished entirely. I had lost all control of my mind, my life, and consequently my body. The once strong and determined athlete that resided within the walls of my now dilapidated frame was long to be found. I longed to return to the days when I was healthy and active--back to the days when I believed I could do anything. But now, getting out of bed was a task. Performing any sort of physical endeavor would be a miracle! I just didn't have the strength, physically or mentally to get back to where I wanted to be. 

Everything began to change the day I reunited with my trainer, Aaron Ogden. I had purposely avoided having any contact with him since I had moved back to Utah. The last thing I wanted was for him to see me in the state of weakness that I was in. I was successful in averting him for five months, until as fate would have it I experienced a physical injury that forced me to humble myself and inquire of his expertise. What I thought would just be a few training sessions turned into much much more. Somewhere along the way of rehabbing my injury, I was reminded of when Aaron first introduced me to Isagenix and cleansing many years ago. I remembered my first cleansing experience. I had a lot of success. I lost 17 pounds and 9% body fat. More important than what I lost during that initial cleanse, is what I gained. I achieved mental and spiritual clarity on a level I had never known before. I then realized, the first step to getting my life and body back was to cleanse. 

I have always found the strength to overcome mental challenges by drawing on the physical challenges I have experienced. I used to often tell myself, "If you can do that then you can do this." With that in mind, I set out to do the exact cleanse I had done initially those many years ago. I figured if I could get the same cleansing results as I did before, then somehow that would mean I was strong and in control again, and could overcome all the mental health issues I was having. It was heartrending when at the end of the nine days I hadn't even come close to my goal. It tore me apart, and reinstated my belief that there was no hope for me. I was bound to remain in this state of obscurity, reliant upon medication and stimulants eternally. In my mind, the person who was once described as "strong" was now entirely extinct. 

Then fate stepped in again. Aaron began advertising the Isabody Challenge on Facebook. For reasons only God knows, I contemplated doing it, but I was scared to try to commit myself to the challenge. I thought about the mental angst my nine day disappointment caused. I couldn't imagine what six months was going to do to me if I failed? On the contrary, I didn't want to think about what the next six months could do to me if I didn't try. I still believed that cleansing was the first step to getting my life and body back, but I realized a nine or 30 day cleanse wasn't going to solve my problems. I needed a deep cleanse. A life altering cleanse. I knew the Isabody Challenge was the best avenue to do so. It was  the challenge I needed to reinstate my sense of control and determination. I decided to do it. Not for the money, the cruise, or to get a six-pack. I did it to show I could be in control of my life--that I was stronger than my mind. 

It has been six months since I started the Isabody Challenge. I will be the first to admit that I did anything but fail. I am now completely off medication, 100% sober, and actively training for a 12 hour adventure race-- an amazing feat for one who at one point couldn't leave their room for weeks. My new medications come in the form of the solace I have found in the outdoors. Hiking, cycling, mountain biking, and snowboarding are my new stimulants. The Isabody challenge gave me the tools and structure I needed to gain control of my body, and to do the things I love. By taking control of my body, I took back control of my mind and my life. When I look in the mirror at the body I've created, I am reminded of the challenges I overcame the past six months. The image gives me the courage to continue to transform my life. 

Everyone recognizes the physical changes. They see the weight loss. They notice the toned muscles. What they can't see is the real peace and clarity I possess within. To me, the physical achievements are secondary to the internal. I have my life back! My mind is clear, and I am happy again! Someone once asked me during an early morning training session, "When does your challenge end?" I responded, "Never." They laughed, but it was not a joke. There are still hard days; days when I am tempted to look to that bottle of pills or alcohol, or to contribute to the scars that remind me of where I have been. But now, because of the 5 am workouts, the two-a-days, and the months of comfort food deprivation, I can again tell myself "I am strong! If I can do all THAT, I can definitely do this!" I have reclaimed my determination and belief that I can do great things, and I AM doing great things. Thanks to the unwavering support and guidance of Aaron, and the help of Isagenix, I am once more in control of my destiny. 


Meet Tiff Dodge, IsaBody Finalist and Body Alive Team Member


Introducing IsaBody Challenge Finalist
& Body Alive Team Member Tiffany Dodge

We had the privilege of going out to a celebratory lunch with "Tiff" yesterday along with her trainer Aaron Ogden.   Little background here, Aaron is one of the most prominent trainers in Utah.  Tiff proudly proclaims him as "the #1 trainer in Utah!"  :)   We have known Aaron for many years, probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 years.   He is a personal friend of the family and trained my sister for some time.   I remember back when Aaron was first introduced to Isagenix, he was in our conference room and out of everyone there, he was the one with the most questions.  It was obvious that Aaron was not going to endorse something unless he was 100% sure that it was going to be safe and effective for his clients .  Thats what sets Aaron apart from the rest, he does not impulsively do things, off all the trainers we've ever met, he is the one that dedicates himself to getting educated and staying on top of the latest technologies that might benefit his friends.     Now that I think of it, I don't think Aaron got involved for quite some time for this very reason.  He stood back and watched for a couple years just to see if Isagenix was a legitimate company or if it was going to be just another fad thing.  Once he was convinced that it was worthwhile, then and only then did he begin to advocate that people utilize it to further their weight loss and fitness goals.

Tiff Dodge grew up a hard-nosed, determined athlete that thought she could do anything she wanted, no matter how hard it might be to achieve.  She was known and recognized for her strength physically and mentally.  Tiff earned 4 Varsity athletic letters, an athletic-scholarship to a prestigious college, Bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and Secondary Education, and a scholarship to Graduate School in Washington, DC.   She graduated with her Masters degree at the top of her class and felt like she was on top of the world with unlimited possibilities.   At that point in time something happened that caused Tiff to lose herself physically, mentally and emotionally.  She hit rock bottom and then some.  Although painful, this experience has given her the capacity to empathize with others who are going through similar challenges, she's grateful for that, she never had that perspective before.  Here's how she recounts getting involved in the IsaBody:
