For this month’s Champions Spotlight we’re excited to introduce you to AdvoCare Distributor Linda Nguyen from Canada!
Linda waited for years for AdvoCare to make its way north to Canada. The wellness coach and gym owner says she knew the company and its supplements could be a great resource to help more Canadians reach their health and wellness goals. In just two years Linda has impacted hundreds of people, but it’s the impact that AdvoCare has made on her confidence and relationships that has made the biggest difference.

How did you discover AdvoCare?
The first time I learned about AdvoCare was eight years ago through my friend and mentor, via Instagram. Her posts about Spark® and the 24-Day JumpStart® caught my eye. I thought the supplements could be a great tool to incorporate with what I was already doing as a trainer and gym owner to help more people with their wellness, weight-loss and fitness goals. I was so excited to learn more about the products that I reached out to the corporate office and asked when AdvoCare would make its way to Canada. Fast forward several years later, and I saw my friend’s post that AdvoCare was finally launching in Canada in the fall of 2018!
How did you get started?
I messaged my friend right away, and we hopped on a call. I ordered a 24-Day JumpStart and had amazing results – I felt better and had more energy.* I sent progress pictures to a few clients and sold 20 JumpStarts. When my clients started getting results, it snowballed and word of mouth spread quickly. Within a month, I sold more than 110 JumpStart programs, and by February I had 260 Preferred Customers! Most of those people are still my customers today.
*Results vary with individual effort, consistency of use, body composition, eating patterns, and exercise. The 24 Day JumpStart can help jumpstart long-term weight loss, health, and wellness.
How do you share the products?
I share through Instagram, testimonials, casual conversation and word of mouth.
What’s one tip you have for sharing AdvoCare on social media?
Be real and authentic. Share real experiences and testimonials. Results of the products speak for themselves.
How have you grown since first becoming a Distributor?
I can now step out of my comfort zone with less resistance. Shortly after I became a Distributor, AdvoCare wanted to hold an event in my area. My response: no thanks! I didn’t want to be a failure – I live on an island and didn’t think anyone would show up. We held the event, and more than 150 people came. I let go of my fear of disappointment and shared my story – it was the first time I spoke in public. After that, I spoke on stage at another AdvoCare event with thousands in attendance. Before, I didn’t think I had anything important to say, but I have learned that when you share something you believe in and have a purpose, it’s easier! Now, I would almost go on to say I love public speaking!
What has your experience been building a business in Canada?
It’s been great as the values and mission align with my career as a wellness coach and gym owner. When people share their results with others, and they have similar experiences, the consistency of the products is key. People want to know what they’re getting into.
How have you adapted to changes at AdvoCare?
My main goal has always been to promote the products, invest in people and coach them. Building relationships and connection have always been what AdvoCare is about for me, and the new structure has helped me do just that.
What is your favorite part of being with AdvoCare?
The community that AdvoCare brings. I discovered AdvoCare through Amy, who has become one of my best friends. I also love the corporate staff. From the calls to hand-written notes of gratitude and kindness I receive, I always feel supported. You couldn’t find better people.
What’s something you have learned through AdvoCare?
That anything is possible. AdvoCare has shifted my mindset and helped me step out of the box. I have learned to be more positive and open with others. This journey has made me focus on the importance of relationships.
If you had advice for a Distributor just starting out, what would it be?
Put time and energy into your customers. Listen to their needs, follow up, and help them with their goals.
