Do you dream of owning your own business? Working for yourself…working from home…being your own boss…determining your own hours… It sounds great. But the costs and work required to start up a new business can be staggering. Even established business owners find themselves chained to high overhead costs while waiting for clients to come to them.
Fortunately, there is a better option. Many have turned to direct selling to make their business dreams come true. Direct selling is the distribution method employed by USANA Health Sciences, and other network marketing companies, where products are sold person-to-person, away from a fixed retail location. Click here to discover why we embrace network marketing and to learn about conscious network marketing.
Dr. Northrup eyes were opened to the USANA business model at midlife, when she got divorced and was suddenly the sole breadwinner for her family—and responsible for all the financial decisions. Dr. Northrup was scared. Like many single women, there were times when she didn’t know if she would be able to pay her mortgage, let alone pay the college tuition for her two daughters. Dr. Northrup knew she needed to learn about finances as quickly as she could in order to support herself and her daughters.
Dr. Northrup began reading books by Suze Orman, Napoleon Hill, and Robert Kiyosaki to learn all she could about money. In Robert Kiyosaki’s book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, she read that if you want to learn about business and residual income, you should work for a good network marketing company for five years. Although her sister Penny Northrup Kirk introduced Dr. Northrup to USANA’s products in 1996, Dr. Northrup didn’t realize that USANA was also the perfect business opportunity until 2002. That is when she formed Team Northrup with her sister and brother-in-law, Phil Kirk, and her daughter Kate.

“Team Northrup and I found each other when I was swamped with starting a new business while maintaining a consulting practice and also raising two teenagers. As a single parent, I didn’t feel like there was any time for me and my own personal needs. Yet, even though I didn’t think I had the time or money to start yet another business, my intuition was calling me to do so. I knew the USANA products would benefit my family and I wanted to start taking care of my health befora crisis arose. Now, 3 ½ years later, I have the time freedom to do as I wish and the income not only filled in while the consulting work fell away with the economic belt tightening, I was also free to move to a new state to be with my kids in college without having to find a job before the move. With Team Northrup, I now have optimal health, the teamwork of a community of entrepreneurs who uplift and support one another, personal growth opportunities, and financial freedom doing what I love ~ inspiring others to live a joyful and abundant life!”
