Ken and Cheryls wealth of experience has been instrumental in helping their AIM
distributorship flourish. Married in 1966, Ken and Cheryl raised three children during the
25 and a half years Ken was a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). His
duties led the Huxter family to many places including the Arctic, the Yukon, and finally
back to Newfoundland.
After the RCMP, the Huxters opened a restaurant. "Thats when we found out
what work was all about," Cheryl exclaims. "For the first six months we averaged
19 hours a day at the restaurant."
It was during this very busy time that Ken became concerned for Cheryls health.
When a friend told him about Barleygreen, he immediately thought of Cheryl. As
her health improved and the rest of the family began taking Barleygreen, Ken
realized that an Barleygreen business could be a vehicle to move them away from
the restaurant, allow them to work from their home, and have much more time and freedom.
The opportunity came at a time when they were ready for a change.
As the Huxters worked at building their AIM business, two things happened. They were
able to sell their restaurant and open their bed and breakfast (they live in a beautiful
location on the lower Humber River and wanted others to experience it, too), and Ken began
to develop a vision for their AIM business.
Ken explains, "I didnt share all my goals with anyone at first. I was afraid
some of them would scare people. I did share one goal, that was to sponsor two
people a month for five years. Other goals (which I didnt share) were to raise up
two Directors a year for seven years, and to have those Directors spread throughout
Eastern Canada (three Directors in Newfoundland, three in the Maritime Provinces, three in
Ontario, and three in Quebec). This would give us the Directors we needed to work toward
the Chairmans Club. Eventually, we plan to have three Directors in Europe." And
the Huxters have met most of those goals. How did they do it?
To achieve their goals, the Huxters established a simple plan that they could use again
and again and could easily teach their downline. They chose three audios, three videos,
and three books that they knew well and could use to help people. They also committed
themselves to putting out a certain number of brochures a day. Then they stuck with
it--reaching people daily with information that they understood and could use effectively.
They taught their downline to do the same.
Ken explains, "Even more important than methods or written goals is what is
written on our hearts. We call it our personal mission and as it evolves we
become rather than accomplish. And our lives as well as our
"Through the years, we have heard many people say, We dont have
time. or Our circumstances wont let us work with this business,
" Ken says. "When we had the restaurant, we felt the same way, but found that we
could do an Barleygreen business and help people any time anywhere. It has
become part of our lifestyle. We do this business all the time, on vacation, while guiding
fishermen on the river, wherever we go. It fits into any circumstance. We really
havent done anything any one else cannot do. One thing that has helped was our
absolute refusal to be distracted by other opportunities, other people, or other
Cheryl and Ken both say, "There is tremendous satisfaction in knowing there is a
guiding hand helping us help others. We couldnt be more happy and blessed."
Cheryl adds, "Each day I ask God to put someone in our path that we can help in some
way. Whether the need is physical, financial, or spiritual, He just keeps bringing people
to us. It has been very satisfying because it has met all those needs in us as well as
other people." Ken says, "I feel everything I did prior to this prepared me for
this vocation. I am happier doing this than anything I have ever done in my life."
