June of 2012 was a changing point in our lives. I went to a Wrap Party after seeing my friend's before and after pictures. I basically begged for $30 to try it! $30 was hard to come by for us but I just wanted to get out of the house! Tried the wrap, LOVED the results and heard about how my friend's sponsor was making an outrageous amount of money every month. Came home, showed my husband, sold him on the business side and that was it! We put the $99 start up cost on a credit card (that is now paid off!) and I've never looked back. That $99 that gave me 4 wraps to sell and my Business Builder kit has completely changed our lives. I know it sounds crazy! I was such a skeptic! But this is real! I get to be with my little girl everyday, teach her that she can do anything she wants to do and love on her all while financially helping our family.
For sure! I'm a former 9-5 gal so all of this was new to me! I had to learn time management but I LOVE being able to set my own hours, not asking for vacation time and taking off of work whenever I want. This makes me think of a tragic situation that happened to a fellow team mate. His father fell very ill and was only given a few months to live. He was able to spend basically every day with his father and take care of him, all because he could make money from home. He was able to spend that time with his father and even was there when he passed away. About 70 days he spent with him. You can't do that with a 9-5 job.
3. Why did you choose ItWorks and how long have you been with them?
I had looked into other direct selling companies before going to that first Wrap Party but there were already so many distributors and I just wasn't into selling! After trying the wrap, seeing the results and watching myself get motivated to get back into shape, I KNEW that just by sharing my results and story that other people would want to get the same results! I've always loved helping people so I knew I had found my calling. I joined June 20th, 2012.
4. Tell me a little about the products and which one is your favorite?
It Works! Global has a product for everyone that's looking to get healthy, lose weight, fight stress and fatigue, lessen the appearance of stretch marks, etc. All of our products are non-GMO. We even grow some of our own ingredients! Our products are made in Mexico which I love! We know all of our growers and manufacturers. The man that invented our Ultimate Body Applicator (the wrap) is from Mexico and is just so knowledgeable. It's so hard to pick a favorite but I LOVE our Greens! The wraps are a close second! The Greens powder has changed my life though. I had a C-Section with my daughter and my GI tract never recovered. I was in pain anytime I tried to go #2. I tried all the medicine my doctor would recommend to me and none of it worked. I started taking the Greens powder and within a week, I was going pain free! It has 8 servings of fruits and veggies in 2 tiny scoops and also a patented, refrigerator free probiotic blend! I even give it to my daughter to keep her regular and healthy.
Working with It Works! Global has changed my life in every aspect. I'm physically healthier because I'm down 50 lbs. I'm mentally stronger as well! I have more faith in myself and more confidence. I can now talk to "strangers" without feeling like I'm going to pass out! ha! I don't talk down to myself anymore, too.
We are financially comfortable now and almost debt free. My husband will be quitting his night driving job next month so he can pursue what he loves to do: Real Estate. We moved out of the tiny duplex last year and moved into our brand new house that has a 5 year note on it. I was able to pay CASH for my own vehicle! No more sharing a car! We were also able to have a beautiful wedding last year and went on a dream honeymoon to Ireland. I think it's safe to say that there isn't an aspect of my life that this company hasn't touched.
The same way that any other successful It Works! Distributor has! Steps to Success and a product (the wrap) that no other company has that produces results in as little as 45 minutes. I do the Steps to Success every month and that grows my business like a wildfire! 3 steps! That's it! Social Media and just introducing people to the wrap has allowed me to complete those steps every month. There really is NO secret. It's determination, consistency, love for the business and products and a no quitting attitude. My WHY also pushes me. My WHY is to be debt free, provide for my daughter and husband in a way I've never been able to and help others. The money is great but you have to really know WHY you need that extra money.
7. Words of wisdom for others who want to follow in your footsteps?
Stop making excuses! Don't use your WHY as your excuse! This business is NOT difficult and it's simple! Don't complicate it, listen to your sponsor and NEVER quit! If I would've quit, we wouldn't be where we are now. Watch someone successful, follow them, do what they do and copy them! Don't get in your own way, too. I learned early on that if you don't get over yourself and face your fears, you won't get anywhere in this industry. That fear could be rejection, failure or even fear of success! It's all in your mind. Don't let it consume you.
To the top! I have accomplished every goal I've made since starting this almost 2 years ago. The most recent? I reached Triple Diamond rank and earned a $25,000 bonus! Triple Diamonds make an average of about $10,000 a month. Does that sound crazy? Yes! I still pinch myself because when I joined, I didn't believe that I could actually get to this rank! So, the next goal is Presidential Diamond rank by July 2014 and also help 4 people get to Diamond rank by the end of July! I've helped numerous team mates get that rank, I'd love to help more!
