People often ask how our business has done during the r-e-c-e-s-s-i-o-n. (I don’t speak the word.) Although our ad sales are down from 2007 and 2008, we are still selling ads, subscriptions and newsstand copies. Life is good. We’ve also started doing magazines for direct sales companies such as Tahitian Noni, Young Living Essential Oils and For Every Home. It’s been awesome to meet the passionate distributors and to try their scientifically-backed products. Right now I’ve got tunnel vision for our next issue of Prosper Magazine, which features Isagenix (based in Phoenix). After photographing the Isagenix shake (in both chocolate and vanilla), I decided to find out for myself if the distributors are right. I’ll let you know in 11 days. For now, I’ll be drinking lots of water, drinking Isagenix shakes and downing a cleansing potion that tastes just like it smells.
