Reed Davis Notable Quotes

“That, by the way, is my DRESS—diet, rest, exercise, stress reduction, supplement—that’s DRESS for health success…it’s like, look, we don’t want to pick at one thing. We want the whole body. We want each organ system to improve its function, and whatever [illness] they have goes away.”
Reed Davis

“Nobody has control over your prices but you. You’re the one who controls your price. No one has any right whatsoever to judge your price or you. So, who’s in control? You are. You make up your price.”
Reed Davis

“We sell packages—never work by the hour. Always work by the package. And keep increasing your package prices until you have the quality of customer that can afford that and that can support you so that you can walk the talk.”
Reed Davis
