Congratulations New Pearl Executives Elfriede and Karl Tappauf!

Tuesday, December 02, 2014

On their path to Pearl Executive, Elfriede and Karl Tappauf of Austria have made it their personal mission to make the life of every individual they come in contact with more enjoyable and gratifying. 

Through the unique opportunity to change a person’s life through not only the products, but the business model, Elfriede and Karl have opened the eyes of many Synergy Team Members to lasting happiness through health and security.

They build their team and share Synergy products by finding five new “Synergy friends,” as Elfriede calls them. Once this is accomplished, she sets out to meet the friends of her “Synergy friends.” This greatly increases her business and social circles.

This couple knows how to serve their team and functions on the same principles that any reputable Customer Service department would, which is what Elfriede calls “high-intensity support.”

Elfriede and Karl said they owe a big thank you to their sponsor Alois Spicak who gave them an opportunity their family of six could never have imagined.

As a mother, Elfriede felt like many other mothers may feel about finding work that’s flexible.

“I need to have my family and my profession under one roof,” Elfriede said. “I needed work that allowed me to make my own schedule, my own hours and gave me a perspective on the bigger picture beyond the career itself. Synergy fills all of these employment requirements I set for myself.”

Elfriede and Karl have used inspiration from strong leaders to push them toward the Pearl Executive title. People like Double Presidentials Dianne Leavitt and Mark Comer, Emerald Executive Bart Woodcook and General Manager Erich Dengg are Elfriede’s role models. They have supported, motivated and mentored her through all of the ups and downs.

“During the course of our time with Synergy, we’ve developed large teams composed of strong leaders,” Elfriede said. “Many thanks to our teams for their unshakable faith and passion for Synergy WorldWide. I love this company.”

Congratulations New Pearl Executives Susanne and Thorsten Kupske!

Tuesday, December 02, 2014


"In order to achieve more you have to be more," is a quote that Germany’s new Pearl Executives Susanne and Thorsten Kupske live by.

Susanne and Thorsten operate under the name SK Powermarketing, and powerful they are.

Susanne swore she would never join another network marketing company again, but this was before she met top leader Hakan Cetin. Despite Susanne’s deep skepticism, Hakan’s pitch about Synergy WorldWide intrigued her.

“When Dan Higginson came to Germany for the first time I realized that Synergy was the missing puzzle piece in my life. I found my home the day I met him,” Susanne said.

Synergy’s groundbreaking products won Susanne and her husband Thorsten over. ProArgi-9+ renewed the couple’s quality of life and they are currently seeing quick results with the newly launched SLMsmart Meal Replacement.

Susanne’s enthusiasm for Synergy products was brimming after taking ProArgi-9+ for a short while, and she ventured out to share the products with others. Over time, Susanne has proved to be an outstanding leader and wakes up each morning with the aspiration to be a better person that day than she was the day before.

The strength that Susanne and Thorsten have help them manage an international team, even at a moment’s notice.

"Stable businesses have satisfied customers, active partners and personal contact,” Susanne said.  “We use modern communication platforms, such as private Facebook groups, teleconferences and webinars.”

Both Susanne and Thorsten believe that a sound business also requires individuals who make a long-term commitment to the Autoship program. This creates regular cash flow which ensure stability. Find people who will commit to the products, Susanne said, and financial success will follow.

Susanne and Thorsten have benefited from the support of many on their journey to Pearl Executive, including their sponsor Hakan Cetin, their faithful team and everyone at Synergy WorldWide headquarters.

"We hope those on our team learn to invest in themselves and take responsibility for their lives,” Susanne said. “Take action; don’t complain and wait. Go and do instead of looking for excuses and never, never, never give up!"
