Nathan Ricks:  The $50 Million Dollar Man

When you think of meeting Nu Skin’s number one distributor, a lot of different thoughts would probably run through your mind as to what kind of person that individual must be.

His Reputation Precedes Him

I first heard of Nathan Ricks before I met him.  My brother would point out his big house up on the hill in Salt Lake City, Utah, as we drove by it.  I had heard the stories of his success with Nu Skin at a young age.  He was one of the catalysts that drove Nu Skin in the early years and helped to shape it into the company that it is today.  At the time they were just stories to me, but I liked what I heard.  I knew that he had what I was looking for; true wealth and lifestyle.

Full of Conviction & Determination

After meeting Nathan Ricks for the first time, I was almost intimidated by his sheer force of conviction.  He was a compelling individual.  You could actually feel it.  My initial encounter with him was at his home in Santa Clara, Utah back in 2003, where I was scanned by the BioPhotonic Scanner for the first time.  You could sense the passion that Nathan had for what he was doing.  It was contagious.  Being around him made you feel like you could conquer the world.

A Man Determined

Nathan Ricks is a man capable of creating anything he puts his mind to and has the ability to move people in the direction of his ultimate vision.  I found this ability inspiring and motivating.  I longed to have this ability, to be this kind of man.

Later I learned how Nathan had this incredible power.  He tried to teach it to us through one of his favorite quotes.

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.“

Nathan has a tangible commitment to what he does.  This is how and why he has had so much success.

A Master Teacher

“I learned more from Nathan my first year in Nu Skin than I did in the 5 years prior combined in network marketing”

– Richard Worthington

Still early on in my Nu Skin career, I had the opportunity to take part in a training meeting that changed the way I looked at building a network marketing business.  It was a small training meeting conducted in the basement of a newly sponsored distributor’s home.  I believe that might have been the last time I saw Nathan in a room of less that a few hundred people.  Nathan went around the room and asked us if we had any questions.  He wanted to know, “what were we struggling with?”  As he went around the room, he wrote each question on a white board.  At the end, he addressed each question and the answers he gave to those questions forever changed the way I looked at network marketing and the way I would build my business.

A Leader of Leaders

You become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with

Being with and around the right type of leadership is crucial.  Learning from the best can shave years off the time required for you to reach high levels of success.  If you had Michael Jordan as your personal basketball coach, how much faster could you become like him, one of the best?  This is what I experienced by being around a great leader like Nathan Ricks.

Nowadays, there are a lot of so-called “experts“ out there trying to “sell” you their information.  Watch where you are getting your information from and whom you are putting your guidance in.  You may find at the end that you have just been wasting time and money.  Following true and proven leadership will help you get quickly and safely to your desired destination.


All in all, Nathan has done it.  He is a 15-year Team Elite, 20 Million Dollar Circle Member with Nu Skin Enterprises. In his interview with Eric Worre, Nathan discloses that he has made over $50 million from Nu Skin to date.  This kind of income is the result of him always adding value to the market place and working harder than anybody else.  He has impacted lives on just about every continent in multiple countries around the globe and continues to do so.  Thank you, Nathan, for your example and leadership!
