Bonnie’s Shaklee Effect

Bonnie loves being a stay-at-home mom… but she wanted something more.


“Prior to working becoming a brand product partner with Shaklee and Project Dream, I was getting daily headaches, over-weight and drowning in debt. Since joining this marketing team last year with Project Dream I have increased my income, lost weight, got off my allergy meds, saved money on my household products and paid off over $15,000 in debt. It blows me away! Project Dream is a motivating and encouraging team. I am so grateful to have found it.”

Amanda Donohoe I‘m a Certified Athletic Trainer turned work from home Mommy of three and wife to my husband of eight years. I love my kids and my husband dearly but find peace in managing a career of my own. After staying at home for almost two years it became clear that we needed some extra income and above all Mommy needed something for herself! When I found Project Dream, I found a company that really fit our healthy lifestyle and a group of people that I will forever be friends with. I am so thankful for Shaklee and Project Dream and the opportunities that they have given my family!.

tespagebridget While I’m new to Project Dream and Shaklee, I’m not a stranger to the amazing products. When I first discovered Shaklee products, I was intrigued to learn more. We love being green in our home, and using products that we can rest assured are safe for our children and ourselves. In addition to being safe & green, a cost effective option too? I’m there! I’m so excited to continue learning and using Shaklee products, and share my experiences and journey!

tespagealex ” I’m Alex! I’m a wife and mom to two wonderful boys! I was first introduced to Shaklee through Basic H. I instantly loved the product and wanted to know more. I read Bonnie’s story of being able to stay home and earn a full time income and was so inspired to make my home a healthier place and share the gift of Shaklee with others. Since joining Project Dream, I’ve learned a lot, grown personally, and been able to help others live healthier lives. The people I get to connect with because of Project Dream have become close friends and I just can’t imagine not knowing them.”

Krysta Steen “Prior to joining Project Dream, I truly felt some-thing was missing from my life. My life was like 98% of the population…overworked, in debt, stressed. I was suffering from daily headaches and migraines. The training that I have received since joining this amazing group of entrepreneurs has been eye-opening. I finally “get” it! I have a purpose, a drive, and passion! I love watching my business grow, helping others gets healthier and learning new things about myself all the time!”

Candice Reimholz “I am a Community Health expert, Massage Therapist, Blogger, Mother of 2 and a happy wife. I had been looking for a way to spend a little less time out of the house, a business that would ‘fit’ with my writing and passion for health and nutrition, and that would assist me attaining the freedom that I was looking for with my life. I was so grateful that a friend introduced me to Shaklee. I am now working part time out of the house and part time in the house. I am growing fast in this business and having a ton of fun along the way. I am so grateful for the coaching I get through Project Dream!”

I joined the Project Dream Team in 2012 to not only create a healthier home, but also to help build a healthy, financial future for my new family. I am loving using and learning about all the amazing Shaklee products, especially the Shaklee 180, which is helping me drop the baby weight and get in the best shape of my life!”

Selena Lopez Prior to joining Shaklee, I was struggling to figure out my life. I had my life put together. I had a career and a family. Within two months I was a single mom with no job, mostly because of a disability. I was depressed and stressed beyond belief. I had spent the first year of my daughter’s life by her side teaching her and watching her grow. I desperately wanted to continue to be there for her. When one door closes another door opens. Shaklee was my open door and it continues to open doors for me. In three short months I am doing more for myself and my daughter than I ever thought possible.

Allison Lopez Before finding Shaklee, I dreamed about finding an opportunity like this. I wanted to be able to work in the health industry but also wanted to have the freedom to make my own schedule. Finding Project Dream and Shaklee was absolutely a dream come true for me! I started my business just a few months ago, and I never imagined I could be this successful in such a short time … and this is only the beginning! I am available for my kids, work when I want to and help support my family financially, all while helping others get healthy!

“Prior to joining Shaklee, my family was going $450 further in debt each month, and I was suffering from major depression. I desperately wanted to be able to stay at home with my daughter, but didn’t think I would be able to. That’s when I found Project Dream. In 14 short months, I exceeded ALL of my goals, I’m able to make a full time income from home, and combined with Shaklee’s income, the resources that Project Dream provides has allowed my family to pay off $40,500 in debt in 10 months! We are finally making our dreams come true, and not just wishing for them!”

Allison Schnelle


tespagekelly Prior to becoming a Partner with Project Dream, I was lost without a hope for our financial future. My husband’s health left him unable to provide for our family and I desperately wanted to be home with my three young boys. My oldest son was suffering from multiple skin issues that we had been unable to solve. We were in and out of the doctor’s office month after month. And then, I was so blessed by this awesome team! The training, support and encouragement goes above and beyond anything I could have expected! We now have hope and health for our future and I have been able to share that with many other women. Can’t imagine where I would be without this team!

Kelly Burtelson


“Prior to Project Dream International, I was looking for something to do when my kids where in bed and my hubby worked late hours. I am a Mother to 4 amazing kiddos but I needed something where I can connect with other women each day and make a difference in the world. I never imagined where this journey would take me.

Since, starting my own business, I have been able to earn: a full-time income, car payments, vacations to California and Mexico, an iPad, Tiffany jewelry and crystals, lots of free health products and other bonuses. I have also been recognized with our product partner on stage in Washington D.C., California, Las Vegas, and Mexico in front of thousands of people. I have been in the company’s media, website, training Dream Calls, etc., and have one of the fastest growing businesses in the industry.

More than all those amazing benefits, I have grown as a person and have made lifelong friends. I have learned the skills that it takes to succeed and I am blessed to share them with our amazing team. This team is highly motivated and serious to impact their lives and everyone they touch.

Project Dream Intl. has changed my life and I will be forever grateful!”

Founder of Project Dream Intl.

Bonnie & Scott Donahue

Bonnie loved being a wife and mother, but found she needed “something for herself.” Shaklee provided income, personal growth, and a community she could feel a part of, while holding on to the things that made her want to be a stay-at-home mom.

Scott was not a believer in Shaklee–nor did he believe Bonnie had the time or skills to start and run a successful business; so this is also the story of Scott’s realizations about Shaklee, and about his wife.
