Lynn's career in the Travel Industry spanned more than 20 years, providing fantastic all round business experience having worked her way through Blue Chip organisations from basic admin clerk to a Board Director and the Managing Director of an overseas villa company. It was here, in the USA, she was introduced a great Direct Selling brand which she decided to join as a family and friends consultant, simply because she simply loved the products.
Back in the UK, Lynn became self employed in 2005, running an IT development project management business but also decided to join the same Direct Selling business, with more ambitious focus resulting in growing a successful team over 5 years and winning a Direct Selling Association award in 2006.
Lynn is a Founding Leader with NYR Organic, joining in 2009. She promoted to Senior Ambassador within 3 years of her incredible journey. Currently with a team of over 3500 consultants, personally having recruited more than 250 people personally. She firmly believes that the benefits from Direct Selling can fulfil anyone's dreams and optimistic that her large, very ambitious dreams could become reality as a result of this business.
She's passionate about holistic health and her loves in life are travelling for both business and pleasure, with more simple pleasures such as spending time in her garden on the Essex/Suffolk borders and enjoying some home cooking.
Sian is based in Bath, in the South West of England and began her career in Direct Selling, after having been a Primary school teacher, when her children were small and a full time teaching job was not easily fitting around a young family. She caught the bug of being in control of growing her own business, working the hours she chose to work and being pro-active in her work again. Taking others with her, by growing a team of Consultants that she trained and supported was a key factor for her too. That business grew well and Sian was then offered a training roll with another Direct Selling company and loved being able to pass on her experience and use her teaching skills again!
Sian joined NYR Organic in the summer of 2009, having watched the business take off after launch in April of the same year. Major personal life changes were happening and it was the right time to join. She now has a team of over 800 Consultants and has a training roll as a Field Development Trainer part time too. When she joined, she had two other jobs, but NYR Organic is now her sole employment. She still loves the flexibility of her work and the ability to be in control of what happens. As a single parent, it is important to her that she can have all of this and still be very much connected with her three children and the juggle of their busy lives. Training and inspiring others in their businesses is a key motivator and she loves to be a part of this thriving organic business.
Jane joined NYR Organic UK early in 2011 having started her direct sales career over 20 years ago to help overcome the severe agorahobia that followed the birth of her daughter Sarah. Within 2 years, she was a top recruiter worldwide within that company, consistently top in personal sales and a team turnover the equivalent today of £2.5 million. She was then headhunted to launch a Canadian children's wear company in the UK from scratch, starting with an impressive 368 new Consultants on day one. The company was nominated as one of the best newcomers in the industry by the DSA and reached sales in excess of £3 million in its third year. Jane was again head-hunted, to be Head of Sales for a children's education book company where she achieved sales of £3 million. Having joined NYROrganic UK in March, 2011, Jane qualified as an Ambassador within 8 months as well as fulfilling her role of Field Trainer for the company. At the end of her first full year, network sales were a staggering £1.2 million and this year sales will reach £2 million! This year, Jane and husband Mike have welcomed their first grandchild - guess which products she will be using!
The future is definitely organic!
Xenia Standbridge is a Frontline Leader with NYR Organic and worked for Neal’s Yard Remedies at Head Office for nearly 10 years. During that time she was Head of Therapy Rooms with the UK Retail Team and latterly Sales Support Manager for the International Team, always involved with promoting the wonderful range of products, both skincare and medicinal.
When NYR Organic was launched in 2009 Xenia knew that she wanted to be part of this exciting new channel for Neal’s Yard Remedies so she combined a full time career whilst building a Direct Selling team in her ‘spare’ time. In the summer of 2012 she decided it was time to put all her energy into NYR Organic and took the brave step of resigning from her employed position at Neal’s Yard Remedies and fulfilled her ambition of being self-employed.
Xenia loves to train and coach her Team of Leaders and Consultants, in particular seeing individuals achieve success, income and freedom in their lives. She supports her Team, imparting her knowledge of Neal’s Yard Remedies and her passion for the company, whilst helping each person fulfil their ambitions. With a geographically diverse team she also uses technology to train Consultants who are further away to ensure they have as much support as possible.
Recently Xenia has become a beekeeper and is delighted to be learning about these wonderful insects – she is really ‘on brand’ with the awareness that NYR has achieved with the Bee Lovely Campaign.
Xenia’s loves offering the opportunity of joining NYR Organic to everyone so they can have the same chance that she did to have her own business and be part of such a great company. The journey is so empowering and there is room for everyone to work towards their dream, you can be part of this too, join now and let the rest of your life begin here.
