Associate Feature – Susan Katz Clark

“I never used to believe in supplements.” That’s how my conversation with Susan Katz Clark began. 

For much of her life, Susan had never thought seriously about adding a nutritional supplement to her routine. “I had tried a few before. and I just never noticed any difference. Plus, I considered myself to be fairly healthy, so I always felt like supplements weren’t worth it,” she explained. However, in 2002, that would all change, thanks to a friend she knew through work. 

“One of the regular volunteers at my work was going around one day asking people if they wanted to try this nutritional supplement made from algae that she took,” Susan recalled. “Because I had known her for quite some time and considered her a friend, I went ahead and tried it.” While Susan wasn’t immediately convinced that the supplement in question was life-changing, she did ask if there were supplements available other than the one she just sampled. Much to her surprise, her friend’s recommendation would change her view of supplements forever. 

Susan went on to share, “Based on my friend’s recommendation, I began taking Essentials. It took a short while to figure out how much my body needed, but after altering the amount I was taking just a bit,  the effects started to kick in.” After finding the right amount for her body, it only took a couple of days for Susan to begin seeing the benefits. “All of a sudden my body wasn’t as stiff or sore after working out, my moments of forgetfulness became fewer and fewer, and my energy improved so much I was finally able to exercise vigorously without taking a nap afterward,” she stated. 

On top of all those benefits, Susan also recalls how much peace of mind it gave her to be taking such nutritionally-dense supplements. “As I was already in my 50s, health and aging had been a growing concern for me,” she divulged. “I was determined to do everything I could to give myself as long and healthy a life as possible, and these supplements give me the peace of mind that I am doing just that. They have become my insurance policy for healthy aging.”

Although Susan continues to keep Essentials at the core of her supplement routine, there are numerous other New Earth products that she has come to love. “Right now, Rebound and Enzymes are tied for my current favorite product,” she said. “I particularly love the way Rebound supports my body and active lifestyle. Since taking it, I have not only been able to increase the amount of exercise I get each week, but also I am rarely sore and I sleep a lot better, too.” 

After two years of experiencing the benefits for herself, Susan decided to make the trip to Oregon to attend her first-ever New Earth event. “I had known there was an income opportunity available with these products, but I always considered myself too busy, since I was working full time,” Susan shared. “But when I went to Oregon and attended that first event, I fell in love with the company, the people, and Klamath Lake. I signed up to be a Wellness Entrepreneur and started building my business as soon as I got home to Alexandria, Virginia.” 

When asked about what it was about New Earth that she loved so much, Susan was eager to share. “The company’s core values of living with integrity, having compassion and respect for others, collaborating and building partnership, protecting and sustaining the planet, having authenticity in our message, and maintaining brand excellence really spoke to me.” She continued, “Plus, New Earth has been around since the 80s, and was a pioneer in promoting digestive health with high-quality products made from one of the world’s most ancient superfoods. They care deeply about the product and the Earth that it comes from, and the products they create truly work!” 

Over the last 18 years, Susan has found that her New Earth business has provided her with a unique experience to grow that she likely wouldn’t have received otherwise. As Susan put it, “My years with New Earth have provided me with identity and structure for my life in retirement. I have had fun representing New Earth in my community, and this business has given me the opportunity to meet many wonderful, caring people that have become like family to me.” 

As we wrapped up our conversation, Susan had some words of wisdom to share with those who are considering starting their own business as a New Earth Wellness Entrepreneur. “Be clear about what’s important to you and what you’d like to accomplish. Start with the products first to make sure you love them. If you love the products, are realistic about your expectations, and are willing to put in the work, then you will succeed.” 

We think that’s wonderful advice, Susan. We are proud of all of your accomplishments and are grateful to have you as part of the New Earth family.
