So who is Flach Associates? This is truly a family business. My husband, Terry Corl, albeit my silent partner, manages the accounting, solves the many computer issues and is my sounding board. My 3 sons grew up in the business taking Shaklee supplements and proteins and energy bars, using our safe and effective personal care and environmentally friendly laundry products and cleaners. All 3 helped in the office learning valuable life skills. Today, as adults with their own families, it is a joy to know that they continue to use Shaklee products in their homes.
Shaklee contributed to 4-year college funds for each son. Today, Joel, a Golden Key National Honor Society graduate of U. of Hawaii, works as a Special Skills Instructor with autistic children. Soon, He and wife, Miki, and young son Kainoa will be moving back to Japan. Could a Japanese leg of the Shaklee business be in store?
Thomas is a L.ac, gaining his diploma from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. He has lived and worked around the world and is presently, living in Lake Arrowhead, CA with his wife Juno and daughter, Jasmine Marie.
Ryan met his life partner, Trisha, while in the Peace Corps and they are, at the present time, residing in Denver, CO. A Provost Honors and Summa Cum Laude Honor graduate of UCSD, he has been accepted into an intensive 6 month program at Turing School of Software Design.
Our children come through us, but are not of us. I am very blessed to have these 3 young men as my sons. They each have worked hard to achieve their honors.
Phil, though not a partner, has significantly contributed to the smooth-running of this family business. His proficient and intuitive skills in office management, design and layout of every newsletter and attending to the many details has been of invaluable aid to me for over 20 years. So skillful is he, that in just a few hours a week, he keeps this ship on course. Phil is a professional musician, much in demand, and I am deeply grateful for the time he lends here.
And then, there’s me…Linda. And it has been my honor to serve you since 1980.
I do consider my Shaklee Family, Family, and I thank you for your trust and for allowing me the privilege of being a part of your life’s journey.
