DR BAUMANN SOUTH AFRICA’s August sales reached a NEW sales record by selling more than any other month since DR BAUMANN launched in South Africa. 

There are many reasons that explain this NEW SALES RECORD. One of those reasons is the opening order that was shipped to DR BAUMANN KZN which is the NEW EXCLUSIVE SUB-DISTRIBUTOR for the area of Durban and KZN. 

The other reasons are the NEW MONTHLY MILLIONAIRE BUSINESS SEMINARS and ongoing SKINOLOGY SEMINARS that focus on educating the DR BAUMANN CUSTOMERS (the beauty salons) on how to improve their business. 

Another reason is the customer workshops that DR BAUMANN SOUTH AFRICA is doing at the beauty salon facilities, where the beauty salon owners invite their best customers for workshops that take about 1 hour and educate end users/consumers about what they need to use and why as well as what NOT TO USE AND WHY!!! 

Another crucial point is the WEEKLY TEAM MEETINGS where DR BAUMANN SOUTH AFRICA discusses the additional improvements that the company can make in order to increase customer service and customer satisfaction.  

The current annual growth of DR BAUMANN SOUTH AFRICA is about 37% compared to the same time period in 2011. This is an impressive growth especially if one remembers that the 2011 sales were about 80% higher than 2010!!! 

THE MOST IMPORTANT is the understanding that BUSINESS GROWTH IS A SIGNAL FROM THE MARKET SAYING “WE LIKE WHAT YOU DO”. So, this is the MOST IMPORTANT POINT to keep in MIND....any business growth whatsoever depends on the cooperation (through satisfaction) of your team and the market. Hence, when you face growth, you know that both of those points (your team and your customers / the market) are well treated.

GOING TO THE NEXT LEVEL - Customers (people) are a funny crowd who get used to whatever you do, even if you do it excellently and expect more and NEW GRATIFICATIONS. So, GOING TO THE NEXT LEVEL means that DR BAUMANN SOUTH AFRICA needs to evolve and deliver even better service and even more quality as well as ADDITIONAL VALUE!!!


Our deepest THANK YOU to all the people who were and are involved in DR BAUMANN SOUTH AFRICA’S mission of DELIVERING HEALTH AND PROSPERITY.

Tips For A More Productive Day

Practice the following techniques to become the master of your own time:

  1. Carry a schedule and record all your thoughts, conversations and activities for a week. This will help you understand how much you can get done during the course of a day and where your precious moments are going. You'll see how much time is actually spent producing results and how much time is wasted on unproductive thoughts, conversations and actions.
  2. Any activity or conversation that's important to your success should have a time assigned to it. To-do lists get longer and longer to the point where they're unworkable. Appointment books work. Schedule appointments with yourself and create time blocks for high-priority thoughts, conversations, and actions. Schedule when they will begin and end. Have the discipline to keep these appointments.
  3. Plan to spend at least 50 percent of your time engaged in the thoughts, activities and conversations that produce most of your results.
  4. Schedule time for interruptions. Plan time to be pulled away from what you're doing. Take, for instance, the concept of having "office hours." Isn't "office hours" another way of saying "planned interruptions?"
  5. Take the first 30 minutes of every day to plan your day. Don't start your day until you complete your time plan. The most important time of your day is the time you schedule to schedule time.
  6. Take five minutes before every call and task to decide what result you want to attain. This will help you know what success looks like before you start. And it will also slow time down. Take five minutes after each call and activity to determine whether your desired result was achieved. If not, what was missing? How do you put what's missing in your next call or activity?
  7. Put up a "Do not disturb" sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
  8. Practice not answering the phone just because it's ringing and e-mails just because they show up. Disconnect instant messaging. Don't instantly give people your attention unless it's absolutely crucial in your business to offer an immediate human response. Instead, schedule a time to answer email and return phone calls.
  9. Block out other distractions like Facebook and other forms of social media unless you use these tools to generate business.
  10. Remember that it's impossible to get everything done. Also remember that odds are good that 20 percent of your thoughts, conversations and activities produce 80 percent of your results.

Naturally, the longer you live the longer and more time you have to earn money. This is a super interesting TED VIDEO that shares the research about the factors that contribute to a healthy living beyond 100 and still be fully active and vital. 

The word “Retirement” is a total strange vocabulary for people who have a great sense of purpose, those ones, not only live longer, but, continue to develop their businesses and their social contribution while adding tens of years and millions of dollars to their investment portfolio. 

According to the research there are 9 factors that have the greatest impact on vitality and longevity: Those 9 factors are divided into 4 categories as displayed below. I absolutely recommend to view the video and learn how to gain tens of healthy year and extend your capacity to become a MULTI MILLIONAIRE still in this LIFETIME. 


Move naturally: Physical activity 

Right view of life: Living with a sense of purpose 

Eat wisely: Plant base dies 

The way to connect: Belong to the right  tribe /People

  1.  water - the body uses water 24 hours per day and is made up of between 50 to 55 percent of water so it important to replace water daily, that is why drinking 8 glasses of water a day is essential.

  5. vitamins - vitamins help regulate the functions of the body and supplements help replace the vitamin s that are lacking to keep ones body healthy
  6. minerals - minerals are important to regulate the body functions and help to form the structures of a healthy body

Are you BIONOME!

Bionome greetings,


having just placed the Dr Baumann Bionome promotion for next week: Bionome Week 25 - 30 April 2011 , i thought that i should clarify the meaning of Bionome as it is something unique and more than mere natural or organic.

i suppose i should start by looking at what is natural and what is organic exactly, as so many of the south african magazines (longevity, intelligent health, natural medicine, psychologies, and so on) are publishing articles about natural, organic and green. 

*natural* means that ingredients are derived and produced by nature this means it is not artificial as it is found in plants or elements from the earth, however a product labeled as ´natural´may still contain 

  • pesticides
  • herbicides
  • toxic heavy metals
  • trace amounts of PCBs
  • toxic fluoride
  • hidden MSG
  • high-temperature cooking byproducts
  • synthetic chemical vitamins
  • other non-natural substances


this is due to the fact that these natural items may come into contact with chemicals and other growth inducing elements. only a small percentage of natural ingredients needs to be present for the claim to be ´natural´. now i do not know if you are anything like me, but i want all natural without the side effects state above. 

while *organic* means that during the growth process it remains free of chemical or artificial pesticides and artificial growth hormone stimulants, fertilizers, antibiotics, additives derived from chemicals, so it is vital that you check the ´source´ of the item or ingredient to be sure that no chemicals have been introduced during the life span of the item or product. see

and no it is not enough for products to contain anything less than 100% organic or naturally derived and yes i am well aware that sometimes natural can be harmful so what then is the solution. the ingredients must be made in laboratories that are then identical to the skins natural structure or composition if it is to be added into products. 

how can we be clear if it is in reality a true natural or organic product, well there are organizations such as:


these association logos are increasing being put on products that are being imported into south africa, but what about locally? well we have a few organizations to name but a few: (Africa's Farms Certified Organic) and (bio Dynamic certification authority- which is not ready yet as they will get back to you on the certification requirements?), now is it really organic and is it trustworthy?

to be totally and absolutely honest, i much prefer the Bionome standards, criteria and principles found in all Dr Baumann product lines. that is why i joined Dr Baumnn in the first place as my values are their values and their values are my values, what an amazing fit and that i am so honored to be part of this Bionome company: Dr Baumann. 

at Dr Baumann we consider ourselves to be more than natural and more than organic as we guarantee skin compatible and skinIdentical ingredients that are safe and healthy for the skin as we work closely with the *blue list* (drawn up by scientist, dermatologists, etc) of ingredients considered safe and healthy in cosmetics. over and above this we are also Bionome.

so what is Bionome you wonder... it is more than natural, more than organic it is ...

“Bionomy” is the science of the laws of life. These laws are the basis of the development and production of the Dr Baumann skincare products. This means that we must take into account the metabolic processes in the human body and skin, as well as concern ourselves with environmental aspects.

Bionome principles                                            Bionome Standards                           Bionome Criteria

  • NO chemicals,                                       - Tolerance                                   - skin friendly vitamins
  • No mineral oils,                                      - effectiveness                             - pure plant oils
  • No preservatives,                                  - balance                                      - skin-endemic active
  • No colorants or  fragrances,                 - harmony with skin                                        ingredients
  • No parabens                                           & environment                             - Highly effective Multi- 
  • Free of animal derivative ingredients    - skin compatibility                          Lamellar liposomes  
  • No useless outer packaging                - skin identical products               - plus all bionome 
  • Receive instead safe and healthy                                                                        standards


we have to meet all these criteria in all that we do and create. this means that, this crucial criteria for what is known as dermatological-based skincare ensures that focus in its entirety is on compatibility; Effectiveness and  has Ethical commitment to animal and environmental protection


in reality we are the only company that has skin identical ingredients thus we can treat skin with skin 

the rest of our ingredients in the beaucaire, bionome spa, Dr Baumann and make up lines are all skin compatible ingredients therefor we have no allergies or problems.  


however we are cautious when starting new consumers on the Dr Baumann lines as we have to overcome what has been used on the skin in the past, and do inform consumers they may have a 2-10 day period where the skin is adjusting to safe, healthy and compatible or skinidentical ingredients to let the skin focus on its own functions and not in overcoming hurdles from unsafe or unhealthy ingredients. the result as you will find is remarkable,  so no i do not always rely and trust logo´s and what they should be representing i trust Bionome! 

How about You, are you Bionome!

for more, please read one of my previous blogs (march 17, 2011) on passionate plea to be earth aware at under *blog  and remember Earth day 2011, which is tomorrow 22 April, make everyday earth day and leave a living legacy of a healthy earth for all.

how fitting is earth day to falls on good friday this year as this is when we really and truly received life. so live and be earth aware!


blessings and happy bionome greetings
