Steven's Ramblings and Ravings

So, here's my blog page for treelite.com.  It's called Ramblings and Ravings because I'm just going to post random bits of information about what's happening with reguards to Tree of Light and my random experiences and tips with Nature's Sunshine's products.

Don't Be Scared, Get Prepared

The mainstream media is at it again. It seems like every year or so we get news of some new disease that threatens to wipe us all out. So far, these dire predictions never seem to come true. I'm cynical enough to believe that it's a great way to prom...

Why Nature's Sunshine?

This website is dedicated to providing third-party educational materials to people who sell and use NSP products. This piece, taken from the forward of the 6th Edition of the Comprehensive Guide to Nature's Sunshine Products, explains why I like Nature's Sunshine.

Being a Third-Party Educator

In the past week, I've come to realize that many people don't understand the concept or value of third-party education  in the herb and nutritional supplement business. Having worked for Nature's Sunshine Products for almost six years in the later p...

The road to hell...
