Dr Tony Pennells heads up a multi-million dollar company that oversees more than 3,000 independent distributors of Herbalife International products across 25 countries. After a three-year career as a GP and surgeon, Dr Pennells discovered Herbalife International after a sustained period of ill health. Astounded with the results, Dr Pennells realised the opportunity to help people improve their health with a sensible nutritional program that could be incorporated around a busy lifestyle. With his wife as a business partner, Dr Pennells embarked on a business focused on distributing the nutritional supplements. Since turning over $650,000 in its first year, the company now turns over more than $5 million.
