Was rereading some past Summit Group newsletters and came across this and I thought I would share it with you, in case any of the associates missed it.


In this time of great economic uncertainty, I wanted to encourage you
to leverage all that Watkins offers to help make life a little bit
better for everyone. Whether it’s our natural comfort products or our
opportunity to build a Watkins business, Watkins offers something that
can positively impact everyone’s lives during these challenging times.

Everyday
we are bombarded with news of the great economic challenges before us.
Although we are without question facing a serious global recession, we
can all take comfort in the fact that Watkins products and business
opportunity have stood the test of time. Throughout our incredible
brand history, which has included many recessions, several World Wars,
and the Great Depression, Watkins has remained relevant and strong.

Even
during this challenging year when consumers have been spending
considerably less, Watkins’ sales are on track to finish up
approximately 15% over 2007, and our sponsoring of new associates is up
approximately 5%.

As was once said, “a crisis is a terrible
thing to waste,” and today’s economic crisis is no exception. People
from all walks of life are feeling financial pressures and are looking
for ways to supplement their income. What better way is there to
develop additional income than to start a Watkins business based on
high value, high quality products that are timeless? Although today’s
consumers
are spending less, recent data shows that the demand for natural and
healthier products is continuing to rise even in this economy.

More
importantly, even though the consumer is cutting back on the bigger
purchases, they still need to treat themselves to life’s little
necessities and indulgences, and they will still maintain the tradition
of gift giving. Watkins offers all these at affordable prices. Also,
the return to healthier cooking at home is pushing up demand for our
organic spices and extracts, and we are seeing a substantial increase
in these product lines.

As we all work with our friends and
loved ones to manage our lives through these challenging economic
times, we can take comfort in the enduring strength of Watkins. In our
140 year history, the world has faced countless obstacles considerably
more challenging than today’s economic uncertainty.

Fortunately,
with some freshly baked cookies made with Watkins Original Vanilla,
along with a bit of Watkins Liniment to ease our aches and pains, and
some Watkins Natural Hand Lotion to get us through winter, we can all
get through these challenging economic times. Once the economy has
settled down, which it will, we will be that much more thankful that
Watkins helped us get through another challenging time in our history.

Yours truly,
Mark E. Jacobs
Watkins President

Excellent letter form Mark Jacobs.

As I always say, even if there are folks out there that are not interested in starting a home business, they can't go wrong by joining even if it's just for the discount. It's times like this that we are all looking to cut back on expenses, and what better way than to take advantage of the personal discount on products we all need.
