Recession Proof Healthy Chocolate For Denver

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Denver Hot Job In one of his always-insightful messages, Dan Martin, Xocai Vice President of distributor relations emphasized an important fact : Denver Direct Marketing Businesses do well in economic downturns.

(I quote from his message with a few minor additions to personalize it for my readers):

The majority of today’s Denver workforce is on the brink of economic collapse, living paycheck-to-paycheck, Colorado retirement funds dwindling or gone, and wishing they were self-employed. Manitou Springs people can’t afford to tell their Monument employer, “That’s it, I’m done.”

But our industry is booming in Colorado! Direct selling is one of the few business models that do well in Colorado Springs in economic downturns. Your efforts are what allow you to break free from the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle, set realistic retirement goals, and answer only to yourself.

I am sure you don’t need Dan Martin to remind you of the barren Colorado Springs economic landscape. I was feeling uneasy about my Colorado Springs professional future when I took a risk and started my own Denver Xocai antioxidant chocolate business.

It wasn’t necessarily a financial risk, Xocai has low start-up costs for Monument and Woodland Park weight-loss chocolate entrepreneurs. It was more of a psychological risk. I had to believe that Manitou Springs home-based antioxidant chocolate business success is possible.

Fortunately, my healthy chocolate business got off the ground quickly. (That’s not surprising; I sell healthy chocolate to Denver antioxidant chocolate lovers.) Early success with short-term goals builds the confidence to reach long-term financial goals.

Healthy Chocolate for Aging Baby Boomers

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Healthy Chocolate Business Booming Hello! Welcome to my TeamX88 healthy chocolate blog. If you are new to this site, let me tell you about my Colorado Springs antioxidant chocolate business.

I am health consultant Elsa Shields. I have been sharing Xocai antioxidant chocolate since February, 2008.

Xocai chocolate products have an antioxidant content that is unsurpassed for chocolate or most any other food popular in Colorado Springs. Xocai contains cacao and acai berries. These two foods are the ultimate nutritional supplements/snacks/health foods/fruits; whatever you want to call them!

Xocai has a complete line of healthy chocolate products for Denver chocolate fiends who need a regular chocolate fix. I am one of those hard-core chocolate fanatics, …but I am also concerned about my health. What does Xocai do for me? It boosts my energy, helps me keep my weight at a healthy level and gives me that “I can conquer the world” feeling.

I am looking for motivated people to share Xocai antioxidant chocolate. If you live in Monument, Woodland Park or Manitou Springs you may be interested in your own Xocai distributorship. While some markets are shrinking, the chocolate industry continues to expand in Colorado. Healthy chocolate appeals not only to chocolate regulars but also baby boomers who are concerned about health problems that seem almost unavoidable as we age. Antioxidants are the answer to many problems associated with aging.

If you are interested in building a chocolate business for yourself, call me at 719.439.0142 today. I look forward to discussing my business and answering any questions you may have. Send me a note from my Contact Page.

What is Flexible Targeting?

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Colorado Million Dollar Chocolate Market As a Colorado Springs health consultant for Xocai, I use the power of direct marketing to reach Colorado chocolate buyers.

I believe Denver direct marketing is not an MLM secret, but the most straightforward and effective way to sell Xocai antioxidant chocolate to Monument chocolate lovers and health conscious Woodland Park folks.

One of the key advantages of Manitou Springs Xocai direct marketing (sometimes called niche marketing) is that it allows for flexible targeting. This is an efficient and inexpensive method of selling healthy chocolate to smaller well-defined submarkets in the booming Colorado, national and global chocolate market.

For example, you may be surprised to learn that one of the most lucrative Colorado healthy chocolate submarkets for the Xocai Xe Energy Drink is Denver males in their twenties and thirties who drink energy drinks daily.

When I explain that Xe provides a constant surge of steady energy by promoting cellular metabolism, my prospects are curious. When they try Xe, Colorado Springs’s ultimate energy drink, they give up Red Bull, Rock Star and Monster for good. (Knowing what Xe does is one thing, experiencing what Xe does is something else altogether.)

Xocai Powerhouse cookie sales are brisk in the young mom demographic. Why? Colorado Springs mothers with young children want to give their kids healthy snacks. (Okay, some fathers care about healthy snacks, also.) They don’t want their kids to grow up on high-fat, chemically-infused Oreos and Chips Ahoy.

If you would like to learn about other money-making MLM secrets, let’s get together. My name is Elsa Shields. I can be reached at 719.439.0142 and

Lose Weight Eating Chocolate?

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Denver Dark Chocolate Diet In June, Xocai began a 12-week pilot study to test the new High-Antioxidant Wellness System. There are 50 subjects, males and females, from all over the country, ranging in age from 26-76. Each participant wants to lose at least 20 pounds (and some up to 100). As of the halfway point (July 30) the subjects were on target to reach their weight-loss goals.

The Xocai High-Antioxidant Wellness System Plan is as follows:

  • Substitute two meals a day with the X ProteinMeal Replacement Shake.
  • Eat three pieces of Xocai chocolate and other healthy snacks.
  • Eat one high-protien/complex carbohydrate meal.
  • 1,200 calorie limit for women, 1,500 calorie limit for men.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Sleep 7-8 hours a night.
  • Keep a food diary.
  • Report weekly in an accountability phone call.

As of July 30, the group had lost a total of 1,000 pounds! According to MXI, the Xocai parent company:

“The really exciting news is they are full of energy, have no muscle aches, no longer experience carbohydrate cravings, and feel better than they have ever felt.

They are even having a hard time consuming the required daily calories because they feel full and have no hunger. Everyone is losing weight and abdominal inches without even feeling like they’re on a diet. When asked if they would stop the protein shakes, their response is they ‘could not live without it.’ When they look over their previous dieting experiences and food intake, they realize why they were gaining and not losing weight.

By recording and reporting their total daily calorie intake, they’ve had great success in controlling their calorie intake and remaining compliant with the weight-loss protocol. The shakes provide the necessary proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, and vitamin and minerals, which give the participants two nutrient-rich meals and helps them avoid the consumption of empty calories. To date, not a single participant has dropped out of the study, which is unheard of in clinical studies. The participants are ecstatic with the success they are experiencing.”

If you want to lose weight and increase your energy, the Xocai High-Antioxidant Wellness System Plan can help you also! Call me at 719.439.0142 to order the Xocai weight-loss products. I share Xocai with interested people in Colorado Springs, Monument, Woodland Park , Manitou Springs, and Denver.

Billion Dollar Chocolate Market In Colorado?

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Own Your Own Denver Healthy Chocolate Business If you have been toying with the idea of starting your own home-based Colorado Springs healthy chocolate business, I have a suggestion. Pick any a weight-loss chocolate product; Xocai Nuggets, Xocai Omega Squares, the Xocai protein bar, Activ, Sipping Xocolate, the Xocai Powerhouse cookie, or the Xocai protein shake. Now, figure out which Denver submarkets would be most interested in that particular antioxidant chocolate product.

When I tried this little exercise for several different Xocai weight-loss chocolate products, I was surprised at the diverse demographics of the Colorado healthy chocolate submarkets. It re-affirmed the fact that the global chocolate market does include virtually everyone.

There are people in every Colorado city, age group and socio-economic class that consume chocolate daily. A significant portion of these Monument and Woodland Park chocolate lovers are concerned about the high fat content of traditional chocolate snacks sold everywhere in Denver.

It is no Colorado Springs MLM secret that the demand for healthy chocolate is steadily increasing, right along with the median age of Denver boomers.

For an informative, delicious and friendly Xocai review, join me at my next Colorado Springs healthy chocolate meeting. Call 719.439.0142 for the time, date and location.

Chocolate Diet In Colorado?

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Colorado Springs Weight Loss Chocolate Eventually, it happens to every Colorado Springs man or woman who has taken a haphazard approach to diet and exercise. The Health Reckoning. The Big Wake-up Call. Harsh Reality.

Call it what you may, but eventually us Manitou Springs slackers all realize that we have to live a healthy lifestyle to feel good, look good, and stay active.

For many Denver folks, that means improving diet and incorporating more exercise into chaotic schedules. Perhaps Denver teens and Monument twenty-somethings can function without nutritious food, adequate sleep and regular exercise without noticing any ill-effects. But that lifestyle cannot continue indefinitely without serious consequence.

Our metabolism slows down as we age. It seems to take more discipline to maintain a healthy weight at 45 vs 25, especially around Colorado. If you are having a hard time keeping your weight at a sensible level because you indulge in chocolate regularly, Xocai antioxidant chocolate is for you. Xocai delivers the dark chocolate fix without the fat and calories found in conventional chocolate products you find around Colorado Springs.

My name is Elsa Shields. I would love to chat with you about all the health benefits of Xocai healthy dark chocolate. I hold Xocai meetings at my home in the Colorado Springs area . I invite you to join me at my next meeting. If you want to lose weight but still enjoy chocolate daily, I can show you how. Contact me at 719.439.0142 or for information about my next meeting.

Billion Dollar Chocolate For Denver?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Denver Weight Loss Chocolate Many Colorado Springs people are considering starting their own home-based business. If you are in the process of researching your options, I urge you to consider becoming an independent Xocai healthy chocolate distributor.

I am Elsa Shields, and I share Xocai health chocolate in Denver and the surrounding communities. It doesn’t matter if you live in Colorado Springs, Monument, or Woodland Park ; Xocai is a hot seller all over the world.

Perhaps you are not a die-hard Colorado Springs chocolate lover. What about your Monument friends and Manitou Springs colleagues? How many of them eat chocolate regularly? When you grocery shop at your local Denver market, do you ever visit the candy aisle? Have you noticed the amount of space devoted to chocolate? What about the limited display area at the checkout counter? How many different brands of chocolate are sold in that coveted retail space? By 2011, the US chocolate market is expected to reach $18 billion. (Yes, that is a ‘b’!)

If you are a chocolate lover, answer this question: Do you stop buying chocolate during times of economic hardship? If you do, you are in the minority. Market research shows that chocolate demand is ‘recession-proof.’ Somehow, chocolate addicts find a way to satisfy their chocolate needs even when money is tight.

Can I point out another billion dollar market that is exploding in Denver? You probably guessed that it is the health and wellness industry. The beautiful thing about Xocai antioxidant chocolate is that it fits into both categories: the chocolate and wellness industries. Xocai is healthy dark chocolate for both chocolate lovers and health supplement consumers. If you are unfamiliar with the nutrients contained in Xocai dark chocolate, see my Xocai website.
