Resa and Matt Salter

Resa and Matt Salter – Nu Skin (video)


What is it about Nu Skin that keeps attracting people to join as direct sellers? For Resa and Matt Salter, it was pretty simple. Like most couples, Resa wanted a way to earn a good income while staying at home with their two sons. Today, they are part of the prestigious Team Elite, as well as the Leadership Team for Nu Skin, making $124,000.00 per month in residual income. That a mighty nice amount of extra income!


Back to the part where Resa wanted to earn income and raise the children, I forgot to mention, she also wanted a job that she loved. There is a big difference, people. As I have stated before on this blog, it is not enough to just sell the products, you have to enjoy what you are doing if you are going to be successful in the MLM business.


Another point I need to add, or rather stress, is that Resa was looking to make a good income. Not just enough money to pay the bills, but enough money so she didn’t even have to look at the bills. A lot of direct selling marketers worked regular 9-5 jobs (sometimes long hours) before becoming independent distributors.


What got them out of the daily working grinding mill was their desire for something more. You have to tell yourself that there needs to be some changes and you want something more. On that same token, you need to have the confidence that your business will grow. If you don’t believe in yourself and your business, how do you expect other to?


The Beginning


Resa was working in a day care with eight children, while her husband Matt worked as a manager in a commercial textile company. While Resa wanted to get involved with Nu Skin, Matt wasn’t as enthusiastic. Over time, he saw how a career as an entrepreneur with Nu Skin could give him and his wife the financial and time freedom they wanted.


Like some of the other Nu Skin top earners, Resa was using the Nu Skin products, and she loved them for their benefits. In just a year, she reached the executive level. While growing her business, she gained a lot of knowledge about what it takes to be successful relationship marketing by attention conventions and events. Her new goal was to reach the Blue Diamond status.


Matt traveled around the world, and he attributes this as a guide in becoming a better team leader. 19 years later as part of Team Elite, Resa and Matt Salter continues to grow their multilevel business by attracting skilled individuals who want to be a part of the Nu Skin community.


Besides being Team Elite, Resa and Matt are part of the 20 Million Circle and Nourish the Children (NTC) Chief Ambassador. Resa is also a founding partner of the Choose to Be organization, a Christian group that works to strengthen communication and relationships among spouses, families, and friends.


They make sure that at every meeting with their distributors, NTC and Force the Good programs are discussed. To these two, giving back to the community is just as important as discussing business models and selling tips.


Wow, Nu Skin sounds like a winner, and not like some of the other businesses that are constantly being reported on MLM scams and pyramid schemes websites. But more than Nu Skin Enterprises, you need to look at the determination and drive of Resa and Matt Salter.


MLM Career


First, she wanted a career, she got involved with Nu Skin, her husband came on board with her, and now they make approximately $20M annually. It sounds simple, but I bet you that Resa and Matt will be the first to tell you that you have to work hard, you have to be committed, and you have to love helping others. If you don’t have these qualities, you don’t need to be in MLM.


According to Resa and Matt, it was never about the money. Don’t get them wrong, they do enjoy the income. However, the part that touches them the most is working with the people in their downline. Another important factor for them is the freedom to do what they want, when they want too.


They were able to spend time with their two sons, Justin and Ronnie, taking part in raising them and watching them grow up. Matt was able to attend his sons’ sporting events, and he even served as team coach. The characteristics that Resa and Matt exhibit in operating their business, has been an example to their children. Justin and Ronnie both note that they believe with motivation and determination, they can become and do anything they desire in this life. Leading by example! How nice!


Resa and Matt say they what they do so much, they both could see themselves in the Nu Skin business for another 20 years. Moreover, it gives them an opportunity to share what they do with the people they love for another 20 years. If there is one thing Resa and Matt wants everyone to know is that the dream life they are living is obtainable for anyone.


Nu Skin


Nu Skin is a multi-level marketing company that creates and produces health care products and dietary supplements. Headquartered in Provo, Utah, it operates internationally and is on the New York Stock Exchange. The goal at Nu Skin is to develop products that contain all things good for the body.


Different from other MLM companies, Nu Skin boasts the fact that it combines innovative products with global business opportunities. At least this company can back it up, with over $1 billion dollars in revenue annually, while still keeping its fundamental values. With the level of money and product sales that Nu Skin is producing every month, it is no surprise that it is the foremost anti-aging company in the world.


Nu Skin Compensation Plan


Resa Salter was first introduced to Nu Skin by her boss who was hosting an event at his home. She recalls going home with a starter package, and the rest is history.


There are a number of ways to earn money with Nu Skin. As a distributor, you can direct sells the products, earning revenue from the markup. If you recruit and train other distributors, you earn performance bonuses on the products they sell. It is a win-win situation for everyone.


You have a career, you earn great money, and you help and train others in having a wonderful career as well. As you continuously sign up customers and distributors, you work to qualify yourself for the executive leader. You will see your earning multiply even more (Nu Skin words). You can also work to being a part of the Leadership Bonus Pool.


There’s more. If your recruits reach the executive level, and you participate in the wealth maximizer and get 3,000 if GSV (global security verification), you qualify for those all-expense paid trips that these MLM companies are well-known for. Doesn’t that some nice about right now? Doesn’t a trip to Hawaii or some other tranquil, exotic location that you don’t have to come out of your pocket for nothing?




Before you start daydreaming about the trip, you need to know what it takes to reach that point. From every article I have written on top MLM earners, the one thing I got is that you have to be committed and willing to do whatever it takes to make you and your team successful. This means that if your team member in another state is not doing so good, you have to hop on a plane and go spend time with him or her.


Another thing is that MLMs businesses have a lot of training and corporate events every year. You need to be present at each and every one of them. Are you willing to do this? Even if you are having a bad day, in a bad mood, whatever your personal issue may be, the business and your team comes first.


Simply put, you have to be devoted to making your team and your business a success. If you will notice, I put “your team” first. You have to realize that your business is not just about you, but more about the people around you. As well all know, in corporate America, it is the other way around.


Can you do this? These are questions you need to think long and hard about before getting into the network marketing sector. If your answers are not solid “yeses” or you are unsure, you might want to wave MLM goodbye.
