West Michigan Millionaire Talks Self-Made Health Empire

Nick SarnicolaGRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (May 15, 2014) — Nick Sarnicola has come a long way since his days at Wyoming Park High School.

At 35, the West Michigan husband and father has made tens of millions of dollars from scratch.

Sarnicola is a co-founder of ViSalus, a network-marketed diet supplement and weight loss platform.  It’s a marketing phenomenon that’s taken over Facebook and Twitter.

After selling a majority share of the company in 2008 for $75 million, Nick and his wife Ashley went back to running their own sales team.

“I became an entrepreneur at 18, made my first million at 25 and several times over since then… and Ashley and I actually met through business,” Sarnicola said.

In 2011, Nick started the Sarnicola foundation to help young people become successful entrepreneurs, teaching them that they don’t have to work for somebody else their entire lives.

At the local level, he and his wife also started the 10/10 Program  to fight hunger.

“Every time an adult loses 10 pounds, or gains 10 pounds of muscle, we feed hungry children on their behalf; kids right here in Grand Rapids,” he said.

    I have learned first hand from this company, I was actually a part of it a few years ago!! The leaders up the ladder promise you this and that and that you will be in a free BMW in less than a year and you will make this much money… BUT when it comes down to it, it is a scam, these people just want to make it sound good so you pay the money to sign up and once you do, you never receive their assistance again..My up-line really sucked and was not supportive at all, I never received anything free, never got close to a BMW, and was told that they were going to assist me and make my dreams come true… That never happened!! And I find it very hypocritical that, that Mr Sarnicola just had on his Facebook not too long ago making a joke that the next site next to his was Chubby Girl.. Well for 1 if it wasn’t for chubby, fat, or obese people he wouldn’t be where he is today with his business!! Most of the success stories come from people losing weight not gaining muscle!! Something to think about!! And lastly he has some pretty good liars promoting his products right here in Grand Rapids!! So be aware!!

    • I love ViSalus!

      I’m sorry that you had a bad experience. This is a wonderful company though. My husband and I didn’t have the best upline but we chose to stick with the company and found support from other ViSalians who actually cared. We are now getting our kits for free… it is definately not a scam!

    Nick is definitely not who he portrays himself to be. ViSalus is tanking in sales, his top promoters are fleeing the company, and he is verbally abusive to his own staff, as well as to ViSalus employees at headquarters. These are NOT admirable people.

    Nick is nothing but a blowhard who made his millions conning people. Then you gotta look at his wife… Looks like an inflatable Barbie doll with all that silicone. Visalus is indeed tanking. Just another multi level marketing scam. Only the guy at the top makes any money, as long as he can continue to sling the bullshit stories to the troops and The troops continue to believe. If he had any character at all, he would have bought that 4 mil condo discreetly and moved in quietly.

    You can tell the negative nellies….all I would say is show me what you've done in life. How many people have you effectively helped? If you live in glass houses….beware your actions for they just might come back to bite you in the butt….amazing how many blowhards spout off and create a fictitious name…because they are so insecure with who they are and hide under rocks….

      Go back to school and learn something from Warrant Buffett and Bill Gates who give of their time and money freely and don't feel the need to appear on local tv in an attempt to tell the world how wonderful they are. That four million dollar condo can come crashing down mighty fast when this clown loses his shirt and the minions finally figure out that they have been schlepped!. It doesn't take much to figure out the bs this guy spouting. Can we say Pyramid Scheme?"

      • I love ViSalus!

        This couple has worked hard to get to where they are at now. They have sacrificed so much time in helping others achieve ther goals. And who cares if its a pyramid scheme? if it is then its a good one. a scheme that gives people free food and makes 18 year olds millionaires!
