For the last month I’ve been consulting on a project for one of my favorite companies- Vitamix. I’m helping them compile a book of inspirational stories to celebrate their 90th Anniversary. When I was first approached about the project, I have to admit my first thought was, “a book about a blender?” Boy, did I have a lot to learn!
I recognized the name from seeing them at Costco or at the fair, but I’d never taken the time to stop and listen to the presentation, let alone sample the wonderful concoctions they create in the Vitamix.
I flew back to their home office in Cleveland, Ohio, and I was inspired with the product, the people and the company. They’re an American company celebrating 90 years, still family owned and operated, with loyalty like I’ve never seen. Some of their employees have worked at Vitamix for nearly 40 years! Some of their customers still have a machine that is more than 50 years old!
I started reading story after story of people who changed their lives- because of this machine. From a woman losing 120 lbs by eating healthier, to a critically ill grandmother that lived another 5 years due to the ability to be nourished with blended food through a feeding tube, to the entrepreneur chef who expanded his empire because he had the right tool- everyone loves Vitamix. I discovered, they don’t just have customers, they have raving fans!
But, I wanted to learn for myself so I took one home with me. Now, I’m in love with my Vitamix and can’t imagine a day without it! I find I’m reluctant to travel because I’m not sure how I’ll get my green smoothie in the morning!
And yes, I did say GREEN. I’ve learned that morning starts with two handfuls of greens- spinach, kale, chard or whatever happens to be in the refrigerator, toss in an apple- seed, core and all, some grapes, a banana and some ice, and I’m in heaven. I feel like I’m drinking life itself. Yum!

After using this machine for the last month I truly believe that the world would be a better place if everyone had a Vitamix. It’s not just a blender- and maybe, like it did for me, it takes the experience of using a Vitamix to truly understand the difference it can make in your life. I’m so inspired and I want to share the opportunity with you to be inspired too. So, please stay tuned right here for the chance to win a Vitamix…. details coming on Monday!
