There is a lot of Goal Process that naturally occurred between Gale and Morris to design the framing of the Dragonize Syndicate. They both met in the Vistancia Business Group that meets in Vistancia. At that time Morris was operating a gymnastics club, trying to advertise for new customers. He mentioned he wanted to start such Dragonize Syndicate during the meeting. Gale, having worked a long time in the USPS, took a lot of time telling Morris of the different workings and best ways to get commercial promotions into your home. Gale, quickly inherently applied Step 11 of Becoming A Mentor, which had brought the Dragonize Syndicate a long way to reach you. Here is more about Gale in her own words:
I never thought of myself as an entrepreneur. But when I look back on my life I see a pattern. When was 16, I learned that I could earn points to get gifts by selling store-brand products from the drugstore I was working at. My eyes lit up and I made sure that when a customer said she needed aspirin, I made sure she knew that she could get two bottles for the price of one of the major brands, by simply explaining that aspirin is aspirin – it’s all acetylsalicylic acid, and somehow they bought it (probably thinking, “Isn’t that cute? She’s such a salesperson.”) I sold a lot of store-brand toothpaste and aspirin while I was there. And I reaped the rewards. That was fun.
Right after I got married, while I was still working at the drugstore; where I met my husband, my husband’s co-worker tossed a bag of paperwork and a catalog to me on the counter and said, “Here – my wife said to give this to you.” I had never met his wife, but I opened the bag when I got home and was excited to see the Tupperware information inside. I'd had a Tupperware party before we were married the year prior, and loved the products. The information I had just received was telling me about how I could become a Tupperware representative, earn money, and even a new car! My kit consisted of lots of Tupperware, and I figured that even if it didn’t work out, I got to keep the Tupperware! I was IN! A few months later, I was promoted to Manager and they gave me a station wagon to use! It was new, it was a beautiful, turquoise blue, Ford station wagon, and it held all the sample pieces that I had to cart around – and later pack and deliver all those orders. About two months later, my team quit and they took the car back. I no longer qualified to be a Manager with a car. I cried, because I had sold my car when I got the station wagon, and now was going to have to get another car. Then right after one of their big “rah-rah” weekly meetings, I went to an employment agency and got a full-time job, and I had all that Tupperware!
When my two children were little, Christmas was coming and our holiday expenses had risen. This stay-at-home-mom decided that I could sell TOYS from a home-party toy company that I had been to the year before. I called up my “toy lady”, but she was leaving the toy business to join another company – Rubbermaid home parties. I joined under her.
Rubbermaid was fun to sell, because we had home organizers that weren’t sold in the store, and I earned some great prizes! I think I was the first person in our neighborhood to have a microwave oven! But it soon went out of business. Oh well, I had lots of Rubbermaid organizers and products.
Somewhere in there, I decided to sell Avon two different times. I loved the products and the discounts were great. I made some money, but it usually went back into buying more Avon with those great discounts. I just wanted some extra money – so I wouldn’t have to ask my husband for money to buy his birthday gifts since I had no income.
We were told by our Rubbermaid upline to not worry, another company was coming onto the market – Ingrid at Home. The “toy-lady” and I joined it and off we went to sell. Selling things seemed to be in my blood. Ingrid at Home was harder to sell because we had pieces that were being sold in the more upscale stores, even though it was a lot of plastic dishes in Fiesta colors. I still have some of them – from 1980. I carted my stuff across the country when we moved to Arizona from Illinois in 1981, and had no friends here and only knew my sister here in Arizona. So, I couldn't get started again and I was out of business.
I sold Avon again, for the third time, while working for the Postal Service, where I retired after 24 years, but I didn’t really want to do the work of selling, I just wanted to share with coworkers and get the discounts. So that didn’t last long.
A few years ago, I had gone to the doctor, and he wanted to raise my cholesterol medicine level, and I didn’t want to. So, I tried a natural product that he recommended that had helped his wife, and it did help me and reduced the inflammation and pain that I was having. I joined that company and sold that product, too. It’s still a product I recommend, but I stopped it when I joined a different company – an all- natural health system that also enabled me to lose 50 pounds and improve my cholesterol level!
My 17-year old grandson was the reason I joined the nutrition company. I did it to support his weight loss and I needed a solution because I didn’t want to use the prescription weight-loss option that my doctor gave to me – with the first possible side-effect of “possible seizures”. My grandson lost 60 pounds, my sister lost 55 pounds, and I was sharing my story with others and selling the products that were life-changing for me, my family, and my friends. I still use these products today because the health benefits are so amazing. And it made losing weight so much easier than doing it on my own. I didn’t have to think much about it. Besides, I had a huge support group on a private Facebook Page to help me and teach me.
I had learned so much about health and weight loss already from my nutrition products, that I wanted to be better at coaching others to a life-changing, healthier lifestyle and decided to enhance my education and became a Certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Specialist. i
I created Rogaar Wellness, LLC to start my coaching services with the option of adding other natural products and solutions to my business. My most recent product addition is top-quality, Pure CBD Hemp Seed Oil.
So, I guess I am a "Serial Entrepreneur". I can’t help it. I like being able to work from home - in my pajamas if I want, be my own boss, take off or vacation when I want without having to ask a boss if it’s okay, not have to invest in inventory for a store, or pay rent to a landlord (and then have to cover that rent before even thinking about making any money), and the list goes on. I like just needing a computer or phone to do my business and the business expenses that I can deduct. I have a store – it just doesn’t have walls or brick and mortar, it’s on Facebook and the internet, and doesn’t need an address.
But most of all, I like being called “Fairy Godmother Gale”, because I can change lives. I can change their health with natural nutrition options and coaching for better sleep, more energy, more confidence in how they look; more ability to move, bend over (and tie their shoes without holding their breath or paint their toes), walk, and achieve better blood test results. And I can also change their financial status. So many marriages are on the brink of breaking up over money, and what I have can literally change their lives. I don’t do any of this for the money. I’m retired and have money coming in. I just enjoy helping people and watching their smiles as they see the changes in their lives.
