A Holiday Message from David Schmidt

Dear LifeWave family: What is it that you are thankful for?

Perhaps the best part of the holiday season and the coming New Year is the opportunity to reflect on what we have to be thankful for in our lives. After all, it’s often too easy to focus on the struggles that bring us unwanted pressure, instead of being grateful for our health, our loved ones and all of the opportunities that life brings.

I have had my share of personal hardships, and each time I’m faced with a difficult situation I have the same thought: I can either let this break me, or I can bounce back from it. Ultimately, I’m grateful for the adversities I have faced, because they have made me the person I am today. I have proven to myself that I can be resilient even in the toughest of times.

But none of that would have been possible if I had lost sight of the positivity that surrounds me every day. Indeed, balancing the good with the bad has empowered me to persevere. This ability to endure is an attribute most successful people share, and one I hope you always aspire to in your personal life. Just remember everything you have to be thankful for, and there’s nothing you can’t overcome.

May this holiday season be filled with love and joy for you and your family, and may 2017 bring you good health, happiness and prosperity.

Best Holiday Wishes!

David Schmidt
Founder and CEO

A Personal Greeting from Our New Chief Marketing Officer

Hello LifeWave Members! I’m Loren Castronovo, the new Chief Marketing Officer. I’d like to take this opportunity to share a little about my background and how it led me to this amazing global community.

Originally from New York, I began my career in New York City, where I held marketing and product development positions for companies like Chanel and Estee Lauder. I later took a pivotal job with Mary Kay, which really solidified my love for the direct selling industry. For more than 20 years, I’ve been committed to working with direct selling companies and helping people build the businesses and lives they imagine.

My journey has included retail, consumer goods and direct selling, with experience in business development, strategic planning, change leadership, innovation, product development, product marketing, team development, and celebrity and brand partnership.

Along the way, I’ve learned that profits are directly related to creating great brand experiences across multiple touch points. Of course, this takes visionary leadership and a highly engaged supporting team; a collective effort that delivers on brand promises, so people everywhere fall in love with our products, services and community. And that’s what really attracted to me to LifeWave. It’s rare to see a confluence of product ingenuity, forward-thinking leadership and global appeal all in one company.

As you can imagine, we have a number of initiatives slated for 2015, all of which aim to increase sales through stronger engagement with our Members. I’m really looking forward to working with you, and providing you with powerful business-building support in the field. Together, we can capitalize on the attributes that make LifeWave the worldwide success it is today.

Company Milestone – Personal Message from President Mike Collins

As our tenth anniversary approaches, I’d like to take this opportunity to reflect on my own history and how it’s led to my current position as LifeWave President. To begin with, let’s turn back the clock to the early stages of my career.

After graduating from The University of Notre Dame and serving my country in the U.S. Army, I was hired by Procter and Gamble to fill an executive sales position. A few years later, PepsiCo recruited me, where I ultimately rose to Division Vice President of Sales.

Next, I began an important chapter in my career, filling executive leadership roles for two of Network Marketing’s largest and most successful companies. This experience taught me a whole new approach to management, one that encourages and incentivizes people towards greatness they often don’t even know they have.

I saw how people could reach incredible income levels, travel the world, earn incentives and garner recognition that’s only possible in the Network Marketing industry. During this time, I was also an active participant in the Direct Selling Association (DSA), and served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Direct Selling Education Foundation for six years.

At this point, I decided to become a general consultant for various Network Marketing companies. It was also around this time that I received an important call from an early LifeWave Leader. The company was only a year old at the time and off to a great start, but he realized I could help structure it for future success.

Before I met Founder and CEO, David Schmidt, I attended a LifeWave meeting in Orange County, California, where I was given a packet of Energy Enhancer patches. I used them the very next day and they had a tremendously positive effect on my mental clarity and energy level. I already knew I had to be involved!

A month later David moved the company to San Diego, where we met for lunch in La Jolla. David’s amazing communication skills and impassioned belief in his technology inspired me to take action. A week later, I sent him a note that read: “I have to get in the batter’s box and start swinging!”

As a result, he offered me the Executive Vice President position, and in January of 2006 I became LifeWave President. David and I worked together to build the staff, nurture our European markets, develop key functions and create a public persona that emphasizes substance over flash. In our case, that was a natural evolution given the efficacy of our products.

Like any great partnership, ours is based on mutually beneficial sets of skills and talents. I was attracted to LifeWave’s technology, and David’s believability, credibility and brilliance. I also knew that LifeWave was poised to blossom worldwide.

On the flipside, David saw the guidance, experience and leadership I could provide. I had connectivity to the DSA, service providers, and a universe of contacts, along with vast experience dealing with field Leaders. And what an amazing journey it’s been thus far!

After ten eventful years, LifeWave still feels like a new company, and I truly believe the best is yet to come. If there’s anything I’ve learned from my experience, it’s that people really are the most valuable asset to any Network Marketing company.

Thanks to all of our Members, without whom, our success would never be possible. Here’s to a brilliant future of prosperity and the transformative powers of LifeWave!

A Message from Founder and CEO David Schmidt

During the month of May, President Mike Collins and I had the privilege of meeting amazing LifeWave Leaders and Members during our three-city Europe tour. I would like to congratulate everyone that helped promote these events and make them an extraordinary success.

This was an exceptionally good tour for a number of reasons. Of special note is the event in Lyon, France, where renowned pain management expert Dr. Pierre Volckmann made an engaging presentation on his clinical study of our IceWave product.

As many of you know, the results of his study – now posted on our corporate website – found that a staggering 90 percent of participants experienced pain relief! These miraculous results are yet another testament to the efficacy of our products, and we’re delighted to have this outstanding third-party verification of our credibility and technology.

After our meetings I took a brief trip to Rome, where my sister in law (who I was meeting for the first time) had been hospitalized for a minor heart attack. When I arrived she was under close observation, too weak to get out of bed or walk, and having difficulty breathing.

I applied LifeWave’s Energy Enhancer patches to the lung points on her wrist. I then applied a Y-Age Aeon Patch to the back of her neck and gave her Theta One supplement.

Shortly after my arrival, her condition had improved considerably. In fact, she felt so much better she got out of bed and started walking around the hospital, and incredibly she was released the following day. She and her husband were literally in tears.

Of course, I was very grateful to be of assistance and aid in her recovery. We are so fortunate to offer products that can make a dramatic impact on quality of life and blessed to earn a livelihood by helping people in the process.
