Is Life's Abundance Too Expensive?
Many new Field Representatives experience a common phenomenon. While they themselves feel there is tremendous value in the Life's Abundance dog food and cat food, they can be persuaded by others that the cost of our food is too high and no one would ever want spend that kind of money to buy pet food.
Of course, that opinion is completely false and there are several things I could say that would effectively counter such an argument (read mostly garbage dog food). But I recently received an email that may help put a little different perspective on the matter. The subject of the email was regarding the high price of gasoline.
Here is the text of the email...
Think a gallon of gas it too expensive? If so, have you purchased any of the following items lately?
Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ..........$9.52 per gallon
Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 ..... $10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ......... $10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ...... $33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 .. $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 .. $123.20 per gallon
Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ....... . $25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 ....$84.48 per gallon
And this is the REAL KICKER...
Evian water 9 oz $1.49..$21.19 per gallon! $21.19 for WATER and the buyers don't even know the source
(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)
Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?
So they have you hooked for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the ink at...............
(you won't believe it....but it is true........)
$5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)
So, the next time you're at the pump,be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!
Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump.
Life's Abundance dog food is about $1.50 per lb. and the Life's Abundance cat food is about $2.00 per lb. Considering that this is less than the cost of good quality hamburger, and that there are about 92 ingredients in each kibble (including chelated minerals, live probiotics, pomegranate extract, hormone and steroid free chicken, fruits, veggies, and more) that is a real bargain. But remember, it's not always about dollars and cents - it's about a higher quality of life for our pets.
