Melanie Preiss never thought of herself as a happy person. Then, she tried the THRIVE Experience and began to let joy into her life
For most of her life, Melanie Preiss says she dragged through life, wondering what her purpose was. “I’ve always really felt like there was something missing,” says Preiss. Then, one month away from her 40th birthday, she had her son. “I had wanted to be a mom so badly that I figured when I finally had a baby, I’d feel complete,” she says.
But that didn’t happen. When her son turned 10 months old and she hosted a party for another direct sales company, she met a woman who was wearing a DFT and asked about it.
Although Preiss had been in the health and wellness industry for many years (she and her husband own a personal training studio), she’d never heard of the THRIVE Experience. The woman told
her about the three simple steps that would give her mood support, sustained energy, focus and clarity, “all the things I lacked at the time,” Preiss remembers.
So, in March of 2022, Preiss tried a sample of the THRIVE Experience. “I took my capsules, and just 40 minutes later, before even trying the Lifestyle Mix, I felt like things suddenly were brighter,” she says.
“I ran around and danced with my son and thought to myself, ‘When is this going to wear off?’” But it didn’t. A few weeks later, Preiss ordered a month’s supply of THRIVE and became a Promoter. “I realized that I wanted to help people feel better and quietly deal with the same types of challenges I faced,” she says.
“For me, working this business is about truly making a difference in other people’s lives.”
She signed up several family members as Promoters and achieved her VIP800 Bonus. A few months later, she earned her Auto Bonus. “That was a real confidence-builder,” she says. “The fact that I was able to earn something like that by helping other people gave me a real sense of purpose.”
Before the THRIVE Experience, Preiss says, she never imagined that she would be the kind of person who could get on the phone with a stranger or speak in front of a group of people. But suddenly, she was making new friends and helping them feel better and chart a different path for their lives. As a THRIVE Promoter, she now lives her life by the mantra of best-selling Canadian author Ann Voskamp, who wrote, “The world has enough women who live a masked insecurity. It needs more women who live a brave vulnerability.”
“That sums me up to a T,” Preiss says. “I am vulnerable, and I am loud, and the world needs more of that!”
Preiss has achieved her 80K VIP rank, but says she’s not intently focused on her sales numbers. “For me, working this business is about truly making a difference in other people’s lives,” she says. “When you focus on helping one person at a time, your business will flourish.”
Looking back at the past few years, Preiss says, “there are days when I literally have to pinch myself and think, ‘this is my life!’
“I now have the kind of life I used to dream about but never felt I was worthy of,” she says. The best part? “I feel like this is only the beginning.”
