For this month’s Champions Spotlight we’re happy to introduce you to AdvoCare® Distributors Stephanie and Adam Wilks!
Seeing others “win” brings Stephanie and Adam Wilks joy, so it’s no wonder when they learned their passion for people could be combined with their passion for products, they were all in. The Wilks joined AdvoCare® in 2014 and enjoyed the products, but it wasn’t until 2015 when they realized they could impact the lives of others through AdvoCare®. That’s when, they say, their journey truly began.
Favorite Spark® flavor
How did you discover AdvoCare®?
My niece introduced me (Stephanie) to the 24-Day JumpStart®. She started taking the products and talked me into trying Spark®, and here we are still loving it!
How did you incorporate AdvoCare® into your personal training business?
Adam and I are health club owners, and I have been a personal trainer for nine years. I knew my clients needed supplementation but had never found a product I believed in. I tried the AdvoCare products and in 2015, as clients began asking about the results I was getting, I introduced them to AdvoCare. I knew the products could be a tool for them to have more structure, get better results and fill in the gaps in their diet. Adam was a little skeptical and had an even longer background in health and wellness, but once he tried Spark® he loved it!
How did you get started?
After sharing with our clients, our friends wanted to know what we were doing, too. When you love something, you share with people you love. Many of them tried AdvoCare® products and got phenomenal results. We started doing group challenges as well.
How do you share the products today?
We share on our social media stories and in person when we have the opportunity.
How has AdvoCare® impacted you as a couple?
AdvoCare has really impacted our personal growth. We are so thankful for the strong leaders and the training poured into us. We are both introverts, and AdvoCare has helped us become more comfortable getting out of our comfort zone.
How has AdvoCare® impacted your family?
We are a blended family and have a sixth grader and two college-aged children. Helping people is our passion, and AdvoCare has given us more ways to do that. Our children have watched us help others, and we hope that continues to make a mark on them. Our kids see our example and are givers, too.
What’s something you have learned through AdvoCare®?
Love people where they’re at in their health and wellness journey. Always smile. A simple smile can make such an impact.
What is your favorite part of being with AdvoCare®?
Being part of the community. The corporate staff and everyone we have met through AdvoCare are awesome. You can tell their hearts are there. We have appreciated the training and seeing the face of the family and how they are involved. We love that AdvoCare recognizes Distributors–they see you–and they teach you to see and recognize others.
What advice would you give a new Distributor just starting out?
Set goals, and take it one day at a time. Also, ask lots of questions.
What is your favorite way to stay active?
We love to hike with our kids and dog. We enjoy getting outside and being active any way we can as a family. Stephanie and I also train at the gym. We set aside two days a week to cross train together.
What brings you the most joy in life?
We love to see people win!
