A huge congratulations to our Black Diamond Ambassador Sheryl Morley! This past week at the GoPro event in Las Vegas, Sheryl was inducted into the Million Dollar Hall of Fame.

“It was an honor for Steve and I to be in Las Vegas this week and share in Sheryl’s special recognition presented by Eric and Marina Worre. Sheryl has always been brave enough to travel the unmarked path in Network Marketing and through her 20+ year journey she has truly learned what she is capable of – and that is being a great leader to all who meet her.
To me personally, she’s fierce with a good heart, soft but strong, unapologetic and honest. She’s the type of woman you want to do business with and the type of woman you want to be best friends with. She’ll make you laugh all night long and you’ll treasure every moment!” – Founder and COO Michelle Wallach
“What I love most about my enroller Sheryl Morley is her authenticity. She has made her story her strength. I love her for that.” – Black Diamond Ambassador Tom Chenault
“Sheryl Morley has spent over 20 years building and supporting Youngevity and it’s wonderful that she was acknowledged as a “Seven Figure Earner” because we all know that our paycheck is a reflection of the number of lives we have touched, and she has touched millions.” – Black Diamond Ambassador Denice Chenault
“Youngevity is so lucky to have such an amazing woman at the top. She inspires us all to help people improve their physical, emotional, and financial health. She leads by example, loves everyone, and is a nuclear exposition of energy! She truly wants to help all of us live the life we want.” – 5 Star Executive Paul Kroto
“Sheryl Morley is the real deal and so deserving of this honor. She started in this profession with no experience and has worked tirelessly to achieve her dreams and help others do the same. Sheryl is one of the most genuine people I know, what you see is what you get and we need more of that in this profession. She inspires hope in others and helps them believe they can have what she has. We are so blessed to have her leading the way here at Youngevity. Congratulations Sheryl!”

“Congratulations Sheryl, You’ve come a long way since I first met you, you were working at Taco Bell, and today You’ve grown to become one of the most Powerful Women in the Network Marketing Profession. You truly are one of the most powerful networkers, You make us all proud.” – Founder Dr. Joel Wallach
Youngevity is so proud of Sheryl and the example she has become in this profession. We love her and appreciate her passion and dedication to our Youngevity family.
Sheryl grew up in a small Idaho farming community, the oldest of seven children. Her father worked day and night at several jobs earning just enough for the family to survive, and her mother, who was often ill, depended heavily on Sheryl to help care for the other children.
“I always had big dreams,” says Sheryl, “I just didn’t know how to go about achieving them. I tried different colleges and majors, but nothing worked for me. I suffered from low self-esteem, no self-confidence, no direction, and no idea what I was going to do with my life.”
She moved to Phoenix and thought she landed the job of her dreams: assistant manager at Taco Bell. Her take home pay was $800 a month, which did not cover all of her bills, and the job of assistant manager meant that she did everything the manager did not want to do, and she worked 60 hours a week. To make matters worse, eating all the free Taco Bell food and soda pop caused her health to deteriorate, leaving her with a lot of extra weight and arthritic knees. She asked her mother for advice. Her mother sent her “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie,” and kept urging her to follow Dr. Wallach’s program to improve her health. But her conventional doctors led her to believe she should expect continual declines in health and would have to live off of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Sheryl thought her situation was hopeless and initially refused to follow her mother’s suggestion. Finally, desperate for a solution, she listened to the cassette tapes and began following Dr. Wallach’s recommendations. Her health improved thereafter, and she has never experienced the health decline her doctors predicted.
Sheryl moved back to Idaho in search of a job. Her mother urged her to consider working for Dr. Wallach who was doing health seminars across the country. When American Longevity (the precursor to Youngevity) was formed, Dr. Wallach gave her two great options. He said, you can work in the main office if you like, and receive a regular salary, or you can become a distributor and build your own business. Struggling with the options, she planned to tell Dr. Wallach that she would work in the main office, thinking that would be the most secure option, but when she stood before him she blurted out, “I want to be a distributor!” At the time she did not know why she had said that, and thought she made a mistake. But soon she realized that life as a Youngevity distributor was far more spectacular than she could have ever imagined! It took lots of hard work, dedication, and perseverance, but she loved helping people and she built a great business with residual income and perks like the car of her dreams. She continued to follow Dr. Wallach’s nutritional recommendations religiously. She lost 35 pounds, she began to look and feel a lot better, and that improved health and sense of well-being has continued for decades.
Dr. Wallach’s influence extended even beyond her physical and financial health. He was the one who introduced Sheryl to her eventual husband, Jonathan. After taking some time off from Youngevity to raise twins, she returned to active participation in Youngevity, building her downline with dozens of new distributors. She has become a Youngevity Ambassador in the process, the second person to achieve that rank in the company’s history.
“It was a little scary when I got back in,” she says, “but my husband was a strong supporter, and since I grew up in the company, it seemed like home.”
Sheryl always leads with the CEO Pak but is thrilled that Youngevity has so many product options. “Youngevity offers something of interest for everyone,” she says.
