Note From the Founders:

How to Jump Onto a Speeding Train (Hint: You Gotta’ Be Quick)

Ok, so you could be like THIS guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ph0toX54qlE

But I don’t recommend it. Not only is he wearing attire completely ill-suited for his objective, but he’s also risking life and limb for next to no reward. That’s not really “Crushing It” if you ask me.

Instead, I suggest a much safer and surer approach.

First, it begins with mentality. You have to be prepared to leap when the time is right! You have to recognize an opportunity and ACT as quickly as possible. This is one of the few traits that ALL successful people have in common. They don’t sit around looking for excuses why NOT to do something. Rather, they obtain the MINIMUM amount of information they need to make a decision, and then they make it. This ability to act is what separates successful train jumpers AND entrepreneurs from those who miss the train completely.

Second, you CANNOT think the train is longer than it is. BIG mistake. So many people see a great train to jump on but think it’s 100 cars long when really it’s only 50. They misjudge the window of opportunity, and thus, when they jump, they fall flat on their face. Ouch.

Last of all, you gotta’ catch the train before it’s moving too fast. You don’t want to jump on when it’s moving too slow, because you won’t get anywhere. But you also don’t want to jump on when it’s moving too fast, because by that time there may be too many people who’ve already boarded the train, and you could be too late. Your spot could be gone.

Speed of Implementation

All three of these things relate to Speed of Implementation. You either have it or you don’t. If you want to be successful, I suggest you find a way to get it, and FAST.

While this all applies to actual train-jumping, for those of us who do not have “007” after our name, I’m also speaking about the quickly moving train that is HUMAN Healthy Vending. We’re moving fast these days, and it’s exciting for everyone involved! Before long we’ll be across the entire country – it’s in our vision and we can see it coming to fruition not too far down the road. We’ll soon be fighting obesity and malnutrition across the entire land…and beyond.

Where is HUMAN launching over the next couple of months? Here are some places to name a few:

  • Asheville, NC
  • Austin, TX
  • Birmingham, AL
  • Chicago, IL
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Madison, WI
  • Oklahoma City, OK
  • Tulsa, OK

And many more! What an exciting time it is to be HUMAN. I get the shivers just thinking about it.

Are you interested in joining the HUMAN Family? Are you ready to fight obesity head-on and dive-in to a recession-proof, booming opportunity that capitalizes on the trend of health & nutrition? And most importantly, would you like to have some fun? Then you might be ready to become HUMAN! Contact us today to catch this speeding train before it’s too late…don’t pass up on these fresh healthy vending opportunities…territories are being opened left and right, so act while your territory is still available.

From Supersize to Slenderize: 3 Reasons Health Will Thrive In 2011

If you turn on the TV these days you will quickly realize how obsessed Americans are with food. Chopped, Iron Chef, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, Anthony Bourdain’s: No Reservations, Bizarre Foods.

Every one of those hit shows is thriving based on a television model that glorifies the process of food creation. Not just any food, real food made with quality ingredients.

And the other hit shows?

The Biggest Loser, I Used to Be Fat, Heavy.  Each of these shows reveals extreme examples of health neglect.  Why are these shows popular?  For one, they offer an action packed, goal oriented, 30 minutes to an hour of programming based upon a comeback story and if there is one thing American’s love, it is a comeback story.  Equally as important as the story, is that each of these shows is extremely relevant.

Everyone can relate to the temptations of overeating and the draw of junk food in modern society.  Everywhere we go we are bombarded with prepackaged, processed foods filled with questionable ingredients.

 

 

The 90’s and early 2000’s were times of gluttony.  Portions were growing larger, “supersizing” was mainstream, and Americans were comfortable with fat.  2011 is the start of a new decade of health, and the signs are all around us.

The First Lady has launched the Let’s Move campaign in an effort to end childhood obesity in a generation, Congress passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, San Francisco has banned toys in happy meals to prevent children from eating junk, and organic food sales have grown from $1 billion in 1990 to $24.8 billion in 2009.

Why is this change happening?

1. Innovation

Nowadays you don’t have to search far and wide to find fully prepared, healthy meals and snacks that TASTE good. In the past, the main problem with eating on the go was that nothing healthy could be packaged and preserved for convenient consumption.  Fast forward to 2011, we have products like LARA Bars that taste fantastic (try the Coconut Cream bar if you are not convinced), have a competitive shelf life, and are 100% raw foods.  These foods have taken years to develop, but we are finally at a level where healthy, tasty snacks are a refreshing reality.

Not only are our snacks more advanced, we also have high-tech vending machines that can dispense virtually any product for convenient access.  In the past, coil vending machines could only dispense products that could sustain a drop from high distances

How much real food can you drop from 5 feet and expect it not to have negative consequences? Bananas? Yogurts? Tea in glass bottles? I don’t think so.

2. Americans Crave Education

 

American’s have finally learned the consequences of a poor diet.  For those of you who have seen Super Size Me, you are familiar with the detrimental effects of eating a consistent junk food diet.  Our bodies have not evolved fast enough to digest high levels of processed foods, and the consequences of over consumption are grossly apparent.

The 4-Hour Body is the number one best selling book on the New York Times advice list.  This is a diet and fitness book whose main selling point is that you can have a healthy and fit body with only 4 hours of work per week.

Why is this the number one selling book?  American’s are obsessed with becoming fit and healthy with MINIMAL effort.

This book retails for $27 dollars, and millions of people are gladly paying it to learn what foods to eat and how to exercise to become healthy.  They are thirsty for education, and anyone who can provide them with the products they need to become fit and healthy, with minimum effort, is tapped in to a market poised for unlimited growth.

3. Being Fat Is Dangerous and Expensive

 

“Every month hundreds of otherwise excellent candidates for military service are turned away by recruiters because of weight problems. Since 1995, the proportion of recruits who failed their physical exams because they were overweight has risen by nearly 70 percent. We need to reverse this trend, and an excellent place to start is by improving the quality of food served in our schools.”

 

General John M. Shalikashvili, US Army (Ret.) Former Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

This quote is from a recent Military Report on National Obesity.  The sad reality is that many American’s are literally too fat to fight.

“For office workers in civilian life, having a colleague who is overweight may raise the cost of their health care but is not likely to threaten their safety. But for military personnel the physical abilities of their colleagues can be the difference between life and death.”

Our military is worried they will not be able to go in to combat safely due to overwhelming obesity, and American’s civilians are being bankrupted by health care costs.  A 2008 study concluded that the cost of treating obesity related ailments hovers around $147 billion dollars a year.

Think about what could be done with $147 billion dollars!  We complain about the budget deficit and excess spending, and at the same time we are literally eating ourselves bankrupt!

These studies have been wake up calls for Americans, and across the country there is a sense of impending change.  There is high interest in becoming healthy, and corporate America is dumping money in the health sector expecting to reap large rewards.

Expect Americans to continue to choose health in the year 2011, and forget about a return to our gluttonous ways of the 90s and early 2000s, we are wiser now, better prepared,  and we literally cannot afford it!
