Shaklee – What Is It About?



So, what is Shaklee really all about?  What is the history behind it, and most importantly can you still really build a viable business with this company?

For starters, it was found by Dr. Forest Shaklee over 50 years ago and is headquartered in Pleasanton, California.   It’s number one claim to fame is that it is now the number one natural nutrition company in the United States.   Interestingly enough, the company was purchased buy Roger Barnett in 2004 and has been run by him ever since.

So what kinds of products does Shaklee market?  As mentioned before, they are a natural nutrition company and are primarily in the business of natural vitamins and supplements.  However, one little known fact is that they also produced the first ever non-toxic, biodegradable cleaner called Basic H, way back in 1960.  Overall,  they have four major product lines, to include: nutritional supplements,  a healthy weight loss line called CINCH, an all natural cleaning line of products known as Get Clean, and a skin care product line called Enfuselle.

But what about the compensation plan?  Overall, there are several ways you can get paid, including a product volume bonus, a quick start bonus known as the Gold Ambassador.  In addition, there are leadership level bonuses, an infinity bonus, and most recently the company added a “Fast Start” Bonus plan where if you meet certain recruiting qualifications over the course of your first 15 months with the company, you can earn up to $100,000 overall with the various compensation plans combined.  So, overall, a good solid payout plan is available for both the new person starting out and the veteran who continues to build their business over time.
