Last night’s October Kick-Off Call was an outstanding success! I’m very proud and honored to be in partnership with a man like Trey White. This call truly defines who he is, his passion for helping others, and his heart. If you couldn’t make it on the call last night, I highly recommend sitting down and taking an hour to listen to this call. My belief in our mission of Helping Other People Evolv is through the roof right now, and I know this call will have that affect on you too.
Congratulations to EvolvHealth Chairman and Co-Founder Trey White who celebrates a recent groundbreaking and record real estate sales with his other venture New Martis Partners. While Trey has a new found passion for Helping Other People Evolv with EvolvHealth, we are proud to bring you exciting news from another passion of his… real estate and golf!
See below for more information on the Schaffer’s Mill Golf & Lake Club.
SCHAFFER’S MILL CELEBRATES CLUBHOUSE GROUNDBREAKING WITH PARTY AND RECORD REAL ESTATE SALES
Schaffer’s Mill celebrated the groundbreaking for their new 7.4-acre Clubhouse Village with a Saturday evening (May 26th) party and wrapped up the holiday weekend with record home and homesite sales. Over the three-day Memorial Day weekend a total of 12 homesites and four Mountain Lodges were sold, totaling more than $6.9 million in real estate sales.
“Our team has been working hard to build a vibrant community and Club here at Schaffer’s Mill,” said John Marlin, Managing Partner for Schaffer’s Mill. “The Clubhouse Village groundbreaking is another step toward making this the finest private community and Club in the High Sierra. It’s evident by our record real estate sales that our investments in Schaffer’s Mill have inspired great confidence, excitement and eagerness.”
The addition of the Clubhouse Village will add to an already impressive list of current Club amenities, including:
A 48-foot Sunseeker Yacht, named No Brainer, the yacht is moored just minutes away from Schaffer’s Mill, and with one simple call to our Club Concierge, Members can be enjoying the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe.
A full-time Club Concierge Team ready to help Members with everything from grocery pickup to yacht use and shuttle pickup.
Private Lake Club at Jake’s on the Lake. Located on the waterfront in the heart of Tahoe City, Jake’s boasts sweeping views of Lake Tahoe’s crystalline water and stunning mountain vistas.
An award-winning John Harbottle and Johnny Miller-designed golf course
A Club Shuttle service with complimentary drop-off and pickup at area ski resorts.
The Clubhouse Village is located in the center of the Schaffer’s Mill community, and will feature a collection of buildings, water features, play areas and a community gathering spot, known as Schaffer’s Square, all designed to bring families together with nature and celebrate Truckee’s four seasons. The North Village is estimated to be completed by summer 2013 and will include: The Sport’s Shop, The Market restaurant and cafe, Locker rooms, Millworks (workout facility), The Family Pool, Peg’s Poolside restaurant, Schaffer’s Hot Springs and Schaffer’s Square.
Schaffer’s Mill was named after the “Father of Truckee,” George Schaffer. Schaffer’s Mill pays homage to Mr. Schaffer, his ideals and vision. New Martis Partners acquired the exceptional, but beleaguered property in January 2011 and immediately set about to rebrand and reposition the community.
Open since 2008, the Schaffer’s Mill Golf Course (formerly known as Timilick) was recognized as the “#1 Best New Private Course in California” by GolfWeek magazine in 2008. The Miller and Harbottle design weaves its way through the towering pines as if painted with an artist’s brush, with two distinctly memorable nine-hole experiences. The Meadow nine ambles through firs, spruce and Ponderosas at the base of a ridge, while the Mountain nine showcases elevation changes of up to 400 feet, with magnificent 360° views of the Martis Valley, Lookout Mountain and the Carson Range. The par 71 course plays to over 7,000 yards and is considered by many as the finest golf course in the Tahoe and Truckee area.
As I sit on a plane flying to Canada, I am humbled by the thousands of people that have trusted their friends and family in hearing about what we are doing and have taken a leap of faith to Evolv. This, my Friends is a historic time. Something special is happening that will go down in history. Not because we are trying to create a historic moment, or because we want to be recognized for the changes that are happening, the history that will be written is about all of us together doing something that some said couldn’t be done, that others don’t see yet and many others won’t see until Millions have gone before them. You are the Innovators. You are part of the 2.5% that adopts an idea, product or service before anyone else. You have stood in the long lines and waited for the release to be one of the first. There is no great company or movement that happens without this early group of adopters.
Whether you know it or not, you are here for a reason. Let’s look at the quick story of what got you here.
EvolvHealth was started by two amazing friends that found a product that was changing people’s lives and decided to get that product out to as many people as they could. They got passionate about getting that product to market and saw that the best way to distribute the product was by word of mouth: people sharing with people. Starting with their own friends and family, doing the same thing that each of you is doing, a movement was created. One relationship of trust reached another and conveyed an idea of better health and better wealth. The passion for one product quickly shifted to addressing more health issues and more innovation. They Evolv’d! Through long grueling hours, millions in investments and proving their commitment to their beliefs and to the company they were building, a vision was cast that has set the Law of Attraction in motion and, now, you are here reading this blog post.
Take note of this moment! Some of you reading this have been here for over 2 years and others are just arriving to the party. Our greatest success will be found in embracing new people and building a revolution, not just a company. Most companies don’t know why they exist; they don’t have a real mission other than to make a lot of money. Our Founders are different. They believe that success comes in creating something that changes Millions of lives and not the reverse. As you listen to them speak and get to feel their hearts you will know what I know, they care! They have a purpose; and because they were willing to do something different, challenge the average or the norm, we all find ourselves attracted to this revolution. The speed of the movement will be measured in the combined power or in each of our “WHY”.
We know our “WHY”. What is your “WHY”? Does your “WHY” include changing your health and spreading a message that will change others? Is it about being part of something bigger than each of us? Whatever the answer, I want to ask you to Evolv, and join us in massive action in creating the Evolv REVOLUTION, the H.O.P.E REVOLUTION.
The key to the future does not lie in the past; it lies in what is driving us today and the combined action that we take TODAY to make a difference. Why are we doing what we are doing? Are we doing all we can? Not tomorrow, but today. I am so inspired by all of you and the culture and community we are building together. You are an author with us; you are making a mark on this movement.
I want to pause for a moment and tell you that I know that everything isn’t always perfect. It may never always be perfect. Every company, large and small, has issues, growing pains and hurdles that must be overcome. As Trey White says, “we just can’t get bit by the same dog twice”. I have come to love that simple wisdom.
You, being part of the Revolution says something about you; it is becoming part of who you are. You are tired of living the way everyone else lives. You are tired of living without energy and without health goals and targets. You are saying, “Enough is enough”, to what we have been told and sold about health and wealth. You don’t just want to see change happen; you want to be part of making the change happen. You don’t just want to be part of the next little MLM company that promises a lot and delivers a little. I believe that at each station in our lives it is important to recognize why we make the decisions that we make and how those decisions impact our “Why” and ultimately who we decide to be.
This past year I have been making small changes in my health and wealth every day. I am challenging my old ways and old habits. I am changing the way I spend money or look at wealth, how to create it and how to retain it. I am Finally putting budgets in to place to help me better achieve our family’s financial goals. I eat better than I have in years, not perfect, but much better. I am proud of myself when I look in the mirror, and proud of what we are doing everyday. None of these changes were possible without this revolution and without connecting daily with all of you. Newton discovered that, “An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force (or outside force, something out of the ordinary).”
Sometimes in life, even though there is pressure we feel balanced, we don’t want to change. Gravity creates balance; the pressure we exert by standing is countered by the force of gravity that is holding us in place. I have been acted upon by all of you. You and your stories and this revolution are changing me little by little, nothing drastic each day but compounded over time, I see a drastic difference as I look back to one year ago. This is a marathon, not a sprint, it is a way of living and questioning the garbage we are told and sold everyday. Even questioning some of the garbage we sell ourselves think like, “I’m not good at this”, “this isn’t going to work”, “I can’t lose weight”, “I will never be that size again”, “I will just settle for who I am and what I have become, it’s no use”. We will all have days where we feel like that. I sure do. However, because I am not alone, part of something bigger than myself, I am winning and accomplishing things that I did not think were possible a little over a year ago. I have not made any drastic changes, in fact, to someone looking in, they might not notice a lot of change, but I do.
There is magic in this process friends. Allowing ourselves the time to change our habits, change some old beliefs and staying connected to culture and community that will always inspire us and never tell us that we aren’t good enough. We CAN do this! People need what we have! It can’t be about the MONEY, it has to be about the revolution. I am so proud to be partnered with all of you. I am grateful every day that I was attracted to this great revolution and these two AMAZING Friends, Trey White and Brent Hicks that started something great and stuck to it, even when times were tough.
Mark this day on your calendar! One year from today, your life could be changed forever. Whether that happens or not starts with you committing to make small changes TODAY.
We are the Innovators; 2.5% of the population that see something before everyone else. The next group that is coming is the Early Adopters and it is our job to find them. Next will be the Early Majority, then the late majority and finally the Laggards, 16% of the population that will always come at the end.
We know who you are and appreciate you and CELEBRATE you, as part of this crazy H.O.P.E. Revolution.
It is happening and they are coming; focus on you and your change and tell others what is happening for you. Find the people that want to change a little, a lot or, even want to do what you are doing. They are out there.
As 2011 comes to an end and we start 2012 on an exciting, high note, with Evolv’s December 2011 being the biggest month in company history, we want to share the TOP FIVE TIPS that you need to be aware of, to close off 2011 and kick start 2012 on the right foot! Remember, you are in business and expenses you make in 2011 will go towards your 2011 returns!
ONE: Get your Evolv Convention Ticket by Dec 31st, 2011 - make it a 2011 expense AND get the Early Bird Savings, which end Dec 31st!
FOUR: Extend for TRIP Point Tracker….. If you reached STAR by Dec 31st, it has been extended. If you were 1,2,FREE qualified in December, it has been extended… if you are not either of those, all you need is 160 PV to extend your trip points all the way to Feb 17! So check your current PV and if it’s not at 160, make sure you get there by placing a personal order or customer order.
FIVE: Looking to add more expenses to your 2011 Business year? Get an Elite or Pro kit by Dec 31st and use as a 2011 expense… plus you will have ample sample products to build with in January 2012!
Hope you’ve found these tips useful.

Evolv 2012 North America Convention
February 17-18, 2012
Irving Convention Center
500 W. Las Colinas Blvd
Irving, TX 75039
I love this time of year when we reconnect with family and friends and take a moment to reflect on all we have to be thankful for. This will be my sixth year celebrating Thanksgiving in this great country and each year my appreciation deepens for this special time. I know I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a great company. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to be in service of all of our amazing Evolv Promoters and Challengers who are making such an incredible difference not only in their own lives but also in the lives of those around them.
What I’ve experienced is that Thanksgiving is not only a time of gratitude and appreciation, but also a time of reflection and renewal. Often we think of the New Year as a time for new beginnings and making New Year’s resolutions, however, I’ve really felt a resurgence of energy and dreams at this special time of year as well. Perhaps it’s being around loved ones or reading messages of appreciation and hope that has me think about the future and what we can start now. So that at Thanksgiving 2012 we will be expressing gratitude for the new steps that we have taken beginning at Thanksgiving 2011.
The e84 Challenge is a perfect way to begin. It will also help you to not fall into the weight gain trap that so many people fall into during the holiday season. Use the Challenge and the products to help you stay on track with your goals even with a little indulgence thrown in there. If you know you’re going to be having an extra large meal then begin the day with a low calorie nutritious Evolv shake, at only roughly 100 calories each it gives you the perfect nutrition to begin your day and leaves room for a little extra later on. The Evolv Thin and Energy are perfect beverages to share during this season when so many people are serving high calorie drinks. It’s also a simple way to introduce family and friends to the e84 Challenge and the Evolv products. The Evolv’d Living Magazine is also a perfect tool to have on hand to help you share our e84 Movement.
Another point we don’t often think about during this time is proper hydration which is critical for health and weight management. According to renowned nutritionist Dr. Cousens, M.D. “If you avoid dehydration, you can avoid overeating. When you start to hydrate by drinking enough water, then your appetite goes down because you’re actually fulfilling what your body needs—which is water. And that’s also a very powerful way to lose weight, but also, in a sense, the hydration makes everything, including your brain, work a lot better.” There is no better way to hydrate than with Evolv’s Archaea Active Formula in pure alkaline spring water.
As we reflect, let’s remember to give thanks for the opportunity to take better care of ourselves and our loved ones through the gift of the e84 Challenge. I invite all of you to take a moment to connect with those feelings of renewal and reinvigoration and how will your health and your life be different one year from now, at Thanksgiving 2012. I’ve always said, the e84 Challenge is so much more than just a Challenge; and from the stories I’ve read over the past six months, I know it can be absolutely life changing.
Happy Thanksgiving! Blessings and health to all!
Dr. Anne Bodak Smith B.S., D.C.
Chief Science Officer
The Evolv Office will be closed Thursday, November 24th, 2011 in observance of Thanksgiving. We will be open Friday, November 25th, 2011for the limited hours of 10AM – 10PM CT. We will resume normal office hours Monday, November 28th, 2011.
I love reading the stories and Facebook posts of the success stories happening with our e84 Challenge.

For those of you who are finalizing your e84 Challenge, be sure to submit your entries to me no later than November 4 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I recently spent some time with the last e84 BURN Challenge winner, LeeAnn Beckwith and wow has this woman’s life dramatically changed for the better as a result of the e84 Challenge. She had just gone on a $2,500 shopping spree thanks to Evolv to buy an entire new wardrobe and did she look amazing! Not only has she lost over 25 pounds but she has actually lost a few more pounds since then. She has been able to keep it off with ease as the new healthy habits have become her lifestyle.
We have amazing products to help you on your Challenge from the delicious Evolv Shakes, to the Thin and Energy beverages and Archaea Active water to help you meet your Challenge goals. Here’s a link to 25 great suggestions for 100 calorie snack choices for those of you looking for some healthy low calorie snack options.
For those of you who have just started your Challenge or have just started a new Challenge, I congratulate you! I know that by completing your Challenge your vitality will drastically improve and all your cells will love you from the inside out!
I look forward to seeing you all in Tulsa in November.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” —Steve Jobs (1955-2011), CEO of Apple, Inc and Pixar Studios
When we started EvolvHealth, Brent and I would keep coming back to asking ourselves one question over and over: “What would Steve Jobs do?” His example provided key guidance to us as we were working together to build the team that would form Evolv as you know it today. No matter what stage of life you are in—whether you are just starting out or you are already a millionaire entrepreneur—having a Mentor, someone to learn from and be inspired by, is critical to growing and becoming the best person you can be. Steve Jobs was one of these people for both Brent and myself.
I love what a friend posted on Facebook about him:
“Love or hate his creations, Steve Jobs managed to bring to computing, and later to lifestyle electronics, what many thought was impossible: Passion.”
That passion brought innovation, energy, and love to a career—to a life—that had a profound impact on the world.
May his life—his innovative spirit and his uncompromising loyalty to his dream— inspire many more to live their own lives without compromise. Steve Jobs, you will be greatly missed.
Though the man is gone, the question remains: “What would Steve Jobs do?” All of us here at Evolv will continue to ask that question as we strive for excellence, and each time we do, it will be with gratitude for his leadership and mentorship.
