3 FOREVER yours YOURS Think bigger! The other day I was looking at my agenda of the past four months, and it struck me again how blessed we are to be involved with this great company. Even though only the first quarter of 2010 has passed, we have already achieved and enjoyed so much. In fact, we have just returned from the European round of our Rally tour and we all had a brilliant time ( brilliant is for all of our UK Distributors who taught me that word!) Wembley, London, was the venue for our 2010 European Rally. It is actually the second time we have been to Wembley. Some of the old timers will remember when we were there in There have been a lot of changes since then. The old Wembley Arena held approximately 2,000 people and back then that was plenty; we filled it 12 years ago, and I think there were many in the room that were happy with a 2,000 Distributor turnout. However, I remember thinking all those years ago that we could do better. The great people of the UK and the rest of Europe need to hear about our products and Marketing Plan. What was great about our visit to the UK this year was to be back in London at the new Wembley Arena, 12 years later, with 10,000 Distributors! To experience the growth, not only in numbers but in professionalism and enthusiasm, was a real inspiration to me, and I hope that each one of you who joined us there also felt the power of FOREVER! I want to let Bob Parker and all of his staff know that this European Rally was the best one ever. They have truly set a new standard for our events. Millions of dollars were awarded to 208 Profit Sharing recipients, we had thousands of recognitions, and a special training was offered with the European Diamonds WOW, what a weekend! As I flew home, I thought a lot about the Wembley experience and what it can teach us. There will be times when you look at your business and say, We are doing just fine. We are earning good money and enjoying a lifestyle that before we could only dream about all is well! We must be careful not to settle for what we have now. Inside each of us is the capacity for greatness. We should constantly be looking for a bigger space or be building bigger dreams. Of course, that s not to say you shouldn t enjoy what you have already accomplished. Just remember to never stop and plateau. It is a common mistake in our business for people to get to where they thought was the limit of their achievements, and then stop doing the basics that got them there in the first place. Remember, if you re not growing you re dying! So the question is how do I keep growing? 1. PATIENCE: We need to understand that growth is not always measured in case credits. There will be times when you are doing all you can and things just don t seem to be working. I can promise you that if you do not quit, it is during these times that you will grow the most. Never forget that results take time to measure. 2. REASON: The WHY you are doing the business must be greater than the opposition that you will inevitably face. For example, if my motivational factor is a certain amount of money, as soon as I reach that point I have lost all motivation to fight on. Therefore, your WHY has to be emotionally based people focused. These types of motivations are without limits. To illustrate this: How much does a mother love her child? Without limit! I was asked in a TV interview this week what characteristics make a successful Forever Distributor. It was a question I did not have to think about if you care about others as much as you care about yourself, you ll be a great Forever Distributor. 3. BE POSITIVE: Regardless of what happens, smile and be cheerful. People are attracted to a positive outlook. 4. RELAX and HAVE FUN: Enjoy yourself. I love the expression, If I let go, I gain everything I ever wanted! Adjacent to Wembley Arena is Wembley Stadium, which holds 90,000 people. As I stood on stage this year in front of a sold-out crowd of nearly 10,000, I thought, This is a lot of Distributors, but it is not enough! In the next 10 years if we do what we did in the last 10 years, we could have 50,000 Distributors in the stadium next door. Wouldn t that be a great start? So with a little patience, reason, a positive outlook, and continuing to have fun at what you do, you will continue to grow not only as a Distributor but as a leader and someday count yourself among the 50,000. Forever Yours, Rex Maughan Chairman of the Board & CEO ALOE(2563) 3

Royal jelly has also been shown to be helpful in the synthesis and metabolism of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and several hormones. In other words, it supports your body s ability to absorb and digest foods for maximum health support. Taking just one tablet of this super food, twice daily, may help enhance your immunity, revitalize your energy and strengthen your memory. And those are just the top three benefits.

5 FOREVER FIT Fun with Fiber: How to Lose Weight and still Feel Full! Studies show that most Americans aren t getting enough fiber. According to the National Fiber Council, healthy adults should consume 32 grams of fiber a day, but in reality most people are only getting grams. While increasing fiber intake can have many benefits such as improving digestive health, regulating blood sugar, and lowering cholesterol, another important benefit is that increased fiber in your diet can help you stave off weight gain. To raise your fiber intake to recommended levels, increase by a few grams each week over several weeks as your body adjusts. This will allow you to integrate the following new tricks: Start your day with a high-fiber breakfast such as oatmeal or cereal topped with fruit. Add shredded zucchini or carrots to your spaghetti sauce for an extra fiber punch. Use corn tortillas: they have 50% more fiber than flour tortillas. Try sprinkling Pinto beans or Black beans on salads or soups. Switch out refined flour crackers and pastas for whole grain versions. Pay attention to fiber content on labels - a high fiber food will have 5 grams or more per serving. Top your food with bananas, blackberries, or hummus. Serve steak & potatoes with onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Sip on soups such as lentil, bean-and-ham, and minestrone. Forever Living offers two convenient products to help you along the road to a high fiber diet. Try Forever Pomesteen Power (#262) for an antioxidant boost with your fiber intake. And to increase intestinal health as you add new eating habits, try Forever Living s Aloe Vera Gel (#015). It s a rich compound of pulp and liquid with digestion-enhancing abilities that will keep you feeling fit and trim. According to the American Heart Association, diets high in fiber can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, chronic diseases, and obesity. Adding fiber to the diet can keep you feeling full longer so you are less likely to overeat. Since high-fiber diets focus on fresh foods and whole grains, they by their nature will steer you towards low-calorie, high-volume choices. So start adding fiber to your diet today, and see how much fun being a fiber foodie can be! The statements contained herein have not been evaluated by the FDA.

6 FOREVER european rally 2010 $637, USD $513, USD Wow! What an event! European Rally 2010 in London, England, was the most spectacular Rally ever! Over 10,000 Distributors from all over Europe packed Wembley Arena and rocked the house. It was an exciting two days, filled with music, dancing, entertainment, recognitions, and 208 Profit Sharing checks totaling over 6.2 million (that s over $8 Million US Dollars!) It was a very British event, featuring King Henry VIII, King Arthur & his Court, Excalibur, Royal Footmen and Robin Hood. Friday s festivities ended with a serenade from the London City Choir and over 3,000 Brits singing Pomp & Circumstance to all those in attendance. What a moving and welcoming tribute we received! Saturday began with a 2-hour training session from Europe s Diamond Managers. It was an inspiring experience from which all Distributors could learn. The Rally kicked off with the Band of the Grenadier Guards and recognition of the Top 10 Distributors in Europe. Then 2010 s Miss Sonya Europe was chosen congratulations to Charlotte Soulie from France. We ll see you in Denver! Europe s Country Pride Award went to Romania, whose Distributors were all dressed as bumble bees. The Spirit Award was presented to Greece, for their amazing enthusiasm and for bringing more than 4 times the number of Distributors to London as last year. Great job! The final Profit Sharing checks were awarded with great fanfare, as Robin Hood shot an arrow through the arena, hitting his target on stage to ignite a great fireworks display. The top check went to Hungary s Miklós Berkics for the third straight year. Way to go, Miki! The party ended all too soon, but we know that everyone went back home re-inspired to Make a Difference. Thanks to Bob Parker and his UK staff for a fantastic Rally! 6

9 FOREVER DISTRIBUTOR HIGHLIGHT Before learning about Forever, I was penniless and worked picking strawberries in the fields of Santa Maria, California. I used to work hour days to support my children and help my family. After working this way for 15 years, I developed several health issues which made it difficult to keep working. At that time, I was also taking English classes and studying to become a U.S. citizen. One day after a particular health scare, I was talking to a friend from my citizenship class and she told me about Forever Living. I began drinking Aloe Vera Gel and taking Bee Propolis, and noticed I was feeling better. So I thought to myself, If these products helped me, then I can help a lot of people by sharing my experience. My friend began to train me as a Distributor, teaching me how to sell and talk to others about the products, and I began to make money. From then on, I felt much better. I got to where I am today by learning that selling is not the only secret to being successful as an FLP Distributor. Two years ago, I discovered that the secret is recruiting more Distributors and forming a community or circle of Distributors who support each other. Teaching them to recruit more Distributors leads to even more success and it becomes a ripple effect. My life is completely different than before. First of all, I am healthier than I have even been! And with FLP, I make four times more than I did picking strawberries! I am still amazed at how much my income has improved and relieved that I am no longer doing manual labor. With my increased income, I was able to send three of my kids to college, a dream I used to think was impossible. Thanks to FLP, I have been able to support my daughter, who graduated from Stanford and is now completing a Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley, my second daughter, who graduated with a B.A. from U.C. Berkeley, and my son, who is currently completing his B.A. at the University of Southern California. I am amazed that I was able to support all three of my oldest children through school when, as a humble and working-class immigrant, I thought I wouldn t be able to support them beyond their high school diplomas. Under FLP, I have also qualified three times for a new car and have qualified to go on vacations to places I had never dreamed of visiting: Hawaii, Vancouver, Las Vegas, Dallas, and most recently Orlando, Florida. My next goal is to buy a house IRENE RICO Sapphire Manager Business Builders Club Conquistador Club with a pool and a huge backyard for my family and my dogs. I plan to do this by expanding my team of Distributors, recruiting in more places, and showing my Distributors how to recruit more Distributors so that our FLP circle expands. When I worked in the strawberry fields, I felt like my boss owned me. I was very much in debt back then, and now I have almost finished paying off my debt, thanks to FLP! In addition, I love all the free time I have as a Sapphire Manager. For example, now I stay at home and can care for my youngest son. I am able to cook meals for him and supervise his schoolwork. I can also take time off to visit my daughters or my older son whenever I want. I now have the luxury of having two dogs and being able to care for them when I was never able to have pets before. I also take my own extended vacations to visit my family in Mexico during the holidays every year. I would like to invite all FLP leaders to share their secrets of business success with others, regardless of which FLP branch they stem from. If the leaders help others, they will be showered with many blessings. Thank you, Forever! Before learning about Forever, I was penniless and worked picking strawberries in the fields of Santa Maria, California....with FLP, I make four times more than I did picking strawberries!

Have you ever thought of Rallies to be among your essential business building tools? If not, we invite you to move them to the top of your priority list right away! Each Rally provides so much training, so many new announcements, and such a high level of energy and motivation that it is an event you cannot afford to miss. And you certainly don t want to keep them all to yourself: these are the best motivation and training tools you could ever hope for, to develop excitement and skills in your Distributors. To have the top achievers and thousands of Distributors from all around the world, plus the International Executives, all in the same place and concentrated on sharing ideas on how you can take your business to record heights, certainly makes a lasting impression on your group, and a very positive impact on your earnings. One of the very first steps in developing a new Distributor should be to instill the importance of attending every Rally. Most Distributors throughout the world have two opportunities each year to experience these events: the regional Rallies held in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and North America; and the Super Rally held in August, also held in North America. The vast majority of Distributors who attend the Rally go home with heightened levels of enthusiasm, loyalty, and skill. Rally attendees tend to grow their businesses larger and stay with the Company longer than those who choose to pass up these great opportunities. Start now to make plans to attend this year s Super Rally with your group. Let them know that this is a must for their business, not an option. For those who are hesitating in committing themselves to the FLP opportunity, attendance at the Rally will usually turn the tide for them; so, do everything you can to get them to join you in Denver, Colorado, from August Keep in mind that some, if not most, of the cost of attending the Super Rally, can be deducted as a business expense (your accountant can give you more specific guidance).

14 FOREVER employee anniversaries 30 Years...Since the very beginning, Forever Living has been an incredible company. Even back when we used to calculate the bonuses by hand and write each check personally, we all knew that we were involved in something different. Back then, Rex s commitment and conviction to our goal of building the greatest opportunity in the world was so strong that, even in the tougher first years, we absolutely knew that Forever would span the globe one day. So how did a Utah-born and raised CPA end up at Forever? Glen was taught to work hard and get a good education, and to find a well-established company in a well-known and respected marketplace. These expectations took him first to become the CFO at a local broadcasting company here in Phoenix. For 10 years, he controlled the money at the TV station and things were going really well until he met a man that changed his life. Rex, recognizing the potential in Glen and realizing that the company needed a safe pair of financial hands, approached Glen and offered him a role in a brand new company called Forever Living Products. So he left the comfortable confines of a large and successful TV station to go against all that he was taught, and moved to a startup company selling cactus juice! But Glen, bowled over by Rex s complete conviction and his hard-working, straight-forward and honest attitude, took the plunge and joined Forever. Initially Glen was asked to work on the new company s tax returns, but as is often the case in an entrepreneurial start-up, there s a lot for everyone to do, and Glen quickly realized he could contribute in other areas of the company as well. He began to manage everything from the switchboard operation, calculating the bonuses by hand, inventory control, General Manager support, and even a bit of on-stage singing and dancing! Today, Glen oversees the Payroll and Human Resources Departments, and also handles all of the Property & Casualty insurance for Forever. On the side, he manages Forever s Corporate Plaza, a 92,000 square foot top of the line building, situated on a beautiful lake, next to two 18-hole championship golf courses. As I walk through our Hall of Flags at the Home Office, which represents all of the foreign countries where we do business, or when I thumb through the International Directory and marvel at all of the Forever Resorts, I am truly humbled. Despite all that has changed over the past 30 years, so much has also remained constant. The quality of our products is the very best. The integrity of our Marketing Plan and the dedication of our employees have not changed. Most of all, our founder, Rex Maughan, has led us by example over the years, demonstrating his hard work, integrity and intelligence. He has been a great inspiration to everyone who works for this phenomenal company, teaching us correct principles and letting us then govern ourselves. Thank you, Rex, for setting the bar high and for giving us the opportunity to strive to be our very best, just as you have done for me during the past 30 years. Talking with Glen you can feel a deep sense of accomplishment and appreciation as he reminisces about when he told his wife, Jackie, that he felt good about Rex and Navaz and he was going to join this new company and become an Aloe Guy! Thankfully Jackie agreed, and together they have contributed enormously to the growth of the Forever family. Speaking of family, Glen and Jackie have been busy over the years building an incredible Banks family with 5 children, 28 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren! The past has been great, but I am more excited about the future we have never been stronger. The growth of the company has been incredible up until now, but we are only just scratching the surface. The potential is what truly excites me. To be able to see where Gregg will take the company over the next few decades is going to be a wonderful thing. I have loved every minute of my journey so far, and I love the Distributors and the relationships we have built. The camaraderie I have experienced with all the Executives and staff, young and old, has been a massive blessing in my life. I would not change a thing! What a privilege it has been to have been a part of this remarkable journey. Sitting in Glen s beautiful office over looking the lake I ask, Any regrets? Glen smiles and I think I can see a glistening in his eyes as he shakes his head emphatically. No regrets; it has been almost perfect. Almost? I ask Almost! he repeats. I wish I was 20 years younger so I could do it all again! Glen Banks, Senior VP of HR & Risk Management (interviewed by Aidan O Hare, VP Europe) 14
15 25 Years I want to thank Rex, Navaz and Dave Hall for believing in me. Gerry McCarthy, Accounts Payable Manager 5 Years The past five years at Forever Living have been remarkable. I feel incredibly fortunate to work in such a beautiful office and with such wonderful people. I d like to thank Marci, Bill and Sylvia for giving me the opportunity to work here; the Distributor Support team for their friendship and support; and of course, Rex, for creating a one of a kind company that treats its employees like family. I m definitely looking forward to see what the next five years bring! Joy Gomez, Distributor Support Echo Bay Marina There are three things visitors ask for when they visit Echo Bay Marina, Nevada the opportunity to picnic, swim, and fish. In the past, people used to have to travel quite a distance over rough terrain to do those things, says Kay Munford, Echo Bay s General Manager. But that s no longer the case as the National Park Service will be building a new launch ramp. In the process, there will be lots of nice new sandy beaches and plenty of fishing areas just outside the marina itself, Munford says. Our guests will be able to drive in, park, and in short order be swimming and fishing. And the fishing is good with some anglers going out every day to chase lots of striped bass. Forever Resorts, L.L.C., took over the Echo Bay operation in February 2010 and named Munford to oversee the property where she has worked for the past 16 years. One thing we really like about our little corner of the world here in the Overton Arm of Lake Mead is the fact that boat traffic is less than in the Boulder Basin. We re off the beaten path more than they are and we have more pristine coves and quiet areas that allow the opportunity for enjoyable solitude. But Echo Bay Marina also offers boat rentals in the form of ski boats, fishing boats, and patio or pontoon boats as well as jet skis, for those seeking a little more excitement. The ownership transition with all its many details has been a large, but smooth, undertaking. We re looking forward to the changes that will ensure Forever Resorts commitment to quality, Munford says.

17 Austin, Texas Rally & Recognitions hosted by Alma Cardona, ASM Summary of 2010 Company Policy Updates (as of February 2010) SUMMARY OF 2010 POLICY UPDATES AS OF FEBRUARY 23, * (b) If the product returned by a terminating Distributor was purchased at New Distributor Price, the NDP profit will be deducted from the immediate upline sponsor and, if the product returned is greater than 1cc, all bonuses and case credits received by the terminating Distributor s upline for the products returned, will be deducted from the upline. If the case credits were used for any level move-ups of the Distributor or upline, those move-ups may be re-calculated after deducting the case credits to determine if the move-ups should remain in force. 4.8 A new Distributor does not receive bonuses until they have achieved the level of Assistant Supervisor. A new Distributor who purchases two (2) case credits from the Company within two consecutive months or less will advance to the position of Assistant Supervisor. 13.1* All Distributors order directly from the Company. As of June 1, 2009 all those at Distributor level will be required to purchase at NDP (NDP = 15% discount off of retail price). After a Distributor (regardless of level) personally purchases at least 2 case credits of product within any two consecutivemonth period, they then purchase at the wholesale price. The difference between the NDP and the Wholesale Price will be paid to the immediate sponsor After two years, a terminated Distributor may reapply subject to Home Office approval. Upon such approval the Distributor will enter at the New Distributor level, and will not have the previous downline organization restored (e): In addition to their retail activities, Distributors may only sell product to their personally-sponsored Distributors, but at not less than wholesale price.
