Cover Story
Stacey Takes
Six Steps
To Success!

S
Stacey Minogue was 13 when she first found out what cancer meant. She
was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease and underwent chemotherapy to
eventually beat the cancer. At 15, the cancer came back. She began chemo
again, beating the disease a second time. Now, age 33, Stacey is attacking
her third bout with Hodgkin’s – but this time, she plans to beat it – for good.

The first CAT scan Stacey had after she started taking Immunocal Platinum,
along with other complementary therapies, showed her tumors had shrunk
by about one centimeter. The doctors were pleased to see the tumors
hadn’t grown, but still weren’t satisfied. When her PET scan came back, it
showed the activity of the tumors had decreased by half. And that’s when
Roberta Fry is in Stacey’s downline, and is quickly learning how to move
her business forward with the same speed and momentum as her sponsor.
In October, Roberta was promoted to Silver, and earned close to $1000 in
Fall Flames and Action Points bonus money alone. Between September and
October, Roberta more than doubled her Personal Group Volume (PGV)
and nearly tripled her TOV.

“Stacey is all about the Success Guide and she is always referring us to it,”
Roberta said. “Whether she’s talking about the products, the business, or
how to set and achieve goals, or whether she is encouraging us to attend
upcoming events, Stacey helps us stay focused. We attended a recent

Immunotec:
The Journey

M
“My name is Normand Robert. I’m a retired
police officer, and an Independent Distributor
for  Immunotec, a Quebec company with whom
La Caisse de Dépot has invested $9 million
dollars. We market health and wellness products,
including Immunocal / HMS 90, which is approved
by Health Canada as a natural source of the
glutathione precursor, cysteine for the maintenance
of a strong immune system.” Ask Normand to
introduce himself professionally, and in less than
30 seconds, he’ll share his tightly-packaged story.
“My philosophy is, if you’re going to do
something, do it well,” said Normand, a Gold
Distributor from Saint-Constant, Quebec, just
south of Montreal. “With Immunotec, I feel I
have the tools and the training, and a team of
corporate members to support me. So I feel

Interview with Tracey Graham

Tracey Plugs In and
Says YES I CAN!

T
Tracey Graham could always envision success; just not for her. She
recognized the unique business opportunity that Immunotec was offering –
for other Distributors. She met successful people who were building their
businesses by applying the Six Steps from the Success Guide – but they
would never work for her.
That was Tracey’s attitude when she joined Immunotec in 2005, when she
first became interested in the products, namely Immunocal/HMS 90, as an
aid for her extreme menstrual cramps and PMS, and her husband’s genetic
risk for high blood pressure.
“What I did in two years, I did in two months when I plugged into the

happen for other people. When I finally started digesting and applying the
message, I was amazed. The results were immediate!”
Tracey used to be the kind of Distributor that didn’t really know what to
say to people or how to present the business opportunity. She didn’t know
the language, and had tossed her Success Guide on a pile of papers, having
barely glanced at it. She admits she had a negative attitude and really
couldn’t envision herself setting goals, reaching out, and being successful.
When her upline, Executive Diamond Distributor Jonathan Jones, came
back from Immunotec’s first Leadership School in Laval, Quebec, he was
excited and motivated to transfer his enthusiasm to his entire team; Tracey
was part of his team. Jonathan told Tracey all about the new training
program, the business tools available to Distributors, and how anybody,
who was plugged in, could succeed.
The first thing Tracey did was dig her Success Guide out from beneath
a pile of discarded papers, and then, she says, she started taking in the
message. “The beauty of the Success Guide is that it gives you the specific “The calls and the meetings are indispensable tools,” Tracey said. “Whether
language you need to do the business, and teaches you how to reach out you’re a new Distributor or an experienced one, there’s something for
