She began her health business with Shaklee when she retired as a special education teacher in 2011. She was in search of healthy natural products for prevention and for certain health concerns. Since she has started taking the Shaklee products, her health issues have subsided and improved, and she’s thus felt committed to share with and help others to achieve the same health results. In particular Kathy had had digestive issues and she found Shaklee products that helped with that. And since she began taking the Shaklee products, she did not have to take medication for her digestive issues.
Kathy Tafur says that the great thing about her products is that “They are in harmony with nature, they scrutinize the ingredients, they test the ingredients, and they scrutinize the resources. So, everything comes from the earth and from natural ways of making things. And the vitamins are high quality and have no artificial ingredients. They have everything from multi-vitamins to probiotics…they have just about any kind of vitamin or supplement, and they also have personal skin care that is chemical free and non-toxic. They also have sports nutrition to help people with hydration and energy. And then they have green cleaning nontoxic products for the home that are not only healthy and effective, but they save you money.”
“It’s really not like work for me”, says Kathy when I ask her what she foresees for the future of her health business. “It’s more like, you know, connecting with people and finding out what’s going on with them and then offering them something they may be interested in. And I enjoy it whether they want to buy or not. I will probably keep doing this for at least another decade, welcoming people into the business, especially because of the concerns for health today, and I would welcome working with them on my team.”
