According to the Car Care Council, the Automotive Aftermarket Industry (including replacement parts, accessories, lubricants, appearance products, service repairs, as well as the tools) is a $285.5 Billion industry. With between $55 and $62 billion in routine maintenance and repairs not performed each year. While this does not exclusively pertain to detailing and lubrication products, it does represent a tremendous opportunity for Autoworks™ High Performance Auto Care and Friction Free™ 3000. The Aftermarket Industry grew by 4.9% in 2007. Imagine the possibilities of tapping into that very lucrative market with products that are competitive, economical and environmentally-friendly. Why should AutoZone, Advance Auto and Napa get all of this business?
With the introduction of Autoworks combined with Friction Free 3000, the money is there to be made. Read More
This Saturday, Greensboro hosted its “Amaizing Pet Adventure,” a day of fun for families and their pets. They held pet adoptions, rabies shots, micro-chipping and a dog show for “normal” dogs that had been rescued. Our own Brandi Quinn was one of the judges. At the “Amaizing Pet Adventure,” Market America got a lot of good PR (as soon as I figure out how to upload the media links, I’ll post a reply.)Market America co-sponsored the event and a local Market America Customer Manager, Donna Smith, sold PetHealth™ products and networked with pet owners and local pet businesses.
I know many of you are probably wondering where to start when it comes to selling PetHealth. Read More
As you may or may not know, the Food and Drug Administration implemented the Adverse Event Reports (AER) system last year. In an effort to protect the end consumer, this process requires manufacturers of dietary supplements to report all AERs to the FDA, much like pharmaceutical companies do. Since the AER process began, there have been 604 adverse event reports submitted. To put things in perspective, 450,000 AERs were received in 2007 from prescription pharmaceuticals.

So, who lives longer, men or women? Well, according to Tom Perls, founder of the New England Centenarian Study at Boston University, across the industrialized world, women still live 5 to 10 years longer than men. Among people over 100 years old, 85% are women.
Women live longer than men. It is unfair, but true. The question is, why?
Thomas Perls offers two reasons: one is the evolutionary drive to pass on her genes; the other is the need to stay healthy enough to rear as many children as possible. A man’s purpose is simply to carry genes that ensure longevity and pass them on to his children. All right, so that’s a little history for you from our caveman past. Read More
If you are anything like me, you are busy. Really busy. Every day I have great intentions—I plan to fix myself a healthy, hearty breakfast, bring my lunch to work, eat at least 7 servings of fruits and vegetables…. Honestly though, most days don’t go according to plan. Whole grains, 5 servings of veggies, 2-4 servings of fruit, 2-3 servings of dairy…. and making sure you get a variety! Having a well rounded diet rich in fruits and vegetables is really important but I like knowing that I’m filling in the gaps everyday by supplementing with a multivitamin.
Sometimes I need a little reminder about nutritional basics and it goes a little something like this:
- French fries don’t count towards your vegetable servings (and neither does ketchup)
- Strawberry daiquiris don’t count as fruit (but it would be so awesome if they did!)
- The lettuce on a burrito isn’t exactly a “nutrient dense” food item (I bet we’d all be nutritional superstars if it was!)
So, when faced with the aforementioned harsh realities of nutrition, I’m so glad I have a multivitamin! Read More
