Impressed by the “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” concepts of author, public speaker and investor Robert Kiyosaki, Lance Clemons is aiming to improve himself and people in the community by using the book’s philosophy. Stressing and advocating for ownership of the system or means of production, rather than being an employee, Clemons says is the way to financial independence.
|A PART OF THE GOLD MIND— Introducing their product to the Pittsburgh market during a local festival, the Teamex LLC group consists of, from left to right: Quad‘re, Quintin and Birdy Reynolds and Karlton Henderson. Back: My’Iesha and Lance Clemons.
“By investing, real estate, owning businesses and the use of finance protection tactics, one can become financially independent,” he said.
Through his recently established business, Teamex, LLC, Clemons, a housing inspector for the Federal Emergency Management Agency has been building a team to introduce the public to what he considers “a gold mine,” the OrGano Gold concept. He explains that OrGano Gold was founded on a vision to create a vehicle for people of the world to be able to reach their full potential. They use the network distribution system to deliver and spread the word about their product, Ganoderma Lucidum. Serving as the cornerstone of a line of products allowing for maximum physical potential, Ganoderma Lucidum is considered one of the most amazing botanicals on earth.
In his line of work, traveling the world as far as Japan, Clemons says he has never experienced a product like Ganoderma Lucidum. It is widely known as the Reishi Mushroom or Lingzhi. According to Clemons, it has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years, making it one of the oldest mushrooms to have been used medically. The Ganoderma or Reishi mushroom is called the “mushroom of immortality” and the miraculous “King of Herbs” in China. It has been used in oriental medicine for more than 2,000 years.
Entering the Pittsburgh market in June through Teamex, LLC, Clemons says the products are receiving a warm welcome. It’s 100 percent organic gourmet coffee line is the only one of its kind in the United States. Merchandise includes beverages inclusive of black coffee, latte, mocha, hot chocolate and organic tea. Items also consist of nutraceuticals and will soon include a skin care line.
Benefits of using the product (Ganoderma) includes helping to provide more energy and vigor, boosting stamina, helping to rejuvenate and oxygenate the body, serving as a natural detoxification, helping to increase brain power and assisting in strengthening the immune system.
Excited about the health benefits, flexibility and financial plan offered by the OrGano Gold business, Birdy Reynolds and Karlton Henderson, two members of Teamex, say they are a part of the business because of the Rich Dad Poor Dad concepts and the financial possibilities.
Reynolds, a mother of five sons, a chemist and educator, says after becoming acquainted with the series she views OrGano Gold as a way to introduce students to entrepreneurship. “Children need different styles of learning; this is a good way to tap them spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally,” she said. Using her years of study and experience with Teamex, she plans to train and work with middle school youths to operate businesses. “We’re excited about how far we can go with this. I’m teaching my sons a different way of financial thinking and as parents to learn about OrGano Gold and now they are interested in their children becoming involved with our entrepreneur program.”
A friend and now partner with Clemons, Reynolds is a Westinghouse High School and Carnegie Mellon University graduate. Working for the University of Pittsburgh, she has been conducting research on how students learn sciences and providing professional development training for teachers throughout the Pittsburgh Public Schools and area school districts, as well as Michigan and Texas.
Impressed with the many health benefits and aware that Ganoderma provides more than 150 natural antioxidants and nutrients, Henderson says his interests in OrGano Gold are financial. Leaning toward the Rich Dad Poor Dad concept of utilizing several income streams, he says the business has been lucrative for him. A strong believer in entrepreneurship, he says in the past he has partnered with Clemons and his brother in operating a construction business and has operated a real estate business where he bought, fixed and sold houses. “I’ve never been interested in multi-level marketing, but I see the potential of this business,” he says. Involved with the business since June he says, “I’ve gotten my investment back already.” Aside from operating his businesses, Henderson works at Holly Family Learning.
Like most multi-level marketing organizations, profits are made by independent consultants bringing in other consultants and each benefiting by the amount of product sold.
Clemons, the leader of the Pittsburgh contingent of OrGano Gold consultants and initiator of Teamex LLC, was introduced to the business by his sister, based in Florida. He says he was impressed that at the early stages of the company the people at the top of the chain are Blacks. Also he liked the health aspects and the binary approach. “If you are going to drink coffee or tea, you might as well drink healthy,” he says pointing out that coffee is the number two traded commodity on the stock market.
With the goal to educate people on the product and its benefits he has started with his children, graduates of the New Kensington school system who he calls “five super athletes” ranging in age from 18-28.
Often when marketing and demonstrating the product at the Pittsburgh Farmers Markets, festivals or vender events, Clemons and Reynolds’ children are key representatives.
OrGano Gold was founded by Philippines native Bernie Chua who has 10 years of CEO direct sales experience. Based in Canada, he has exclusive “strategic alliance” agreements with one of the largest certified organic Ganoderma producers in the world. It is said that it has taken him six years to perfect the taste of the coffee beverages and that he is loyal and dedicated to providing the finest quality products and to provide optimum support to those in the business.
