I Like Big BUTS, and I Cannot Lie

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I talk to people all the time about my business. Why wouldn’t I? It has dramatically blessed my life in so many ways, and I simply want to share in that blessing with others.

Inevitably, though, people are skeptical, and many conversations end with, “I really want to, but…”

I’m not here to overcome objections, be that money, time, don’t care about skincare, afraid no one will buy from you, you’re too cool for direct sales 😉, don’t want to post on Facebook, etc.

I fully believe in what I am offering and the value of this brand, our products, and the change that this company is bringing to people’s lives. And if someone doesn’t see that, it’s usually because their “but” is too big.😉

I had a big but, too. I was “too cool for direct sales.” 😎 Yep. For 2 years I turned my nose up to this opportunity! Now, having experienced what I have in the past 19 months, I’m KICKING my but!

So with that…if you are willing to have an open-minded conversation with me about your but, I would be honored to share some facts with you to see if just maybe a different perspective could bring change to your life…and maybe even shrink your but.😊

Want a Job with REAL Benefits?

Let’s talk about benefits….

I often hear people say that they can’t do my business because they need something with benefits. The average monthly cost of health insurance coverage without a subsidy is $286 for an individual and $727 for a family (http://bit.ly/1SgBC5f) Sounds steep, right?

But at what price are you paying to have that cost covered by someone else, rather than covering it yourself? Are you truly fulfilled by what you’re doing? Do you find yourself longing for more time with your family, friends, or even yourself? Are you frequently rewarded for your hard work, or does it go unnoticed no matter what you contribute?

Many people would rather pay those monthly prices for a car than for their own health and happiness. A car that depreciates every time you crank it up, versus your overall happiness which increases the value of your health, your relationships, and your overall community. Or, think about this…by investing in YOU and daring to do something a little bit different, you could actually reduce (or eliminate) the amount you pay in childcare and give your children what they really want….you.

What if in less than 2 years you could replace your current salary? That time will pass anyway…why not do something in the meantime that is setting you up for a life with real purpose and priceless benefits? ‪

Think Of It This Way

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I often hear, “I already know so many people that are doing what you do; I would just be another person lost in the hype.” Well, let me put to you this way…

How many Starbucks do you pass every day? Several, I’m sure. Sometimes multiple ones on the same street!! But do you think Starbucks is worried about having too many stores and one getting lost in the hype? Nope! Because they know the demand for their caffeinated deliciousness, so they keep right on a-building! And if Starbucks came to you and said, “Would you like to own your own franchise for just $1,000?” you would said, “ummm…yes, please!!” Cha-ching!

The global skincare industry is projected to be 196.67 BILLION by 2024, with no sign of slowing down! Why…? Because we all have skin and we are all aging every day. #fact Don’t let what you THINK you know stop you from getting the facts about this business. Because if you really understood what I was offering you, you would bust through a brick wall to get it! Start 2017 off with a piece of that billion dollar pie by connecting with me today.

My Life Motto

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

“Better to regret something you did than something you didn’t do.”

This motto has been life changing for me multiple times:

I ended up moving to Nashville against all parental and peer advice…where I didn’t know a soul, didn’t have a job, and had just a few dollars in my pocket. I could have lost it all…but instead, I made lifetime friendships and had the rare opportunity of working with some of country music’s finest!

I ended up going on a date with that guy who had been just a friend for over a year. It could have ruined a friendship…but instead, he became my best-friend and my husband!

I ended up joining that skincare business that raised many eyebrows and had some of my closest friends laughing at me. I could have fallen flat on my face…but instead, I found myself thriving as a successful business owner, enjoying my life on MY terms.

To hear more of my story, take just 8 minutes to dial in:

Don’t live in regret. This is one opportunity where, if you embrace it, it can truly change your world as you know it. ‪#‎daretodeviate‬ ‪#‎lifeonYOURterms

Why Would You Date You?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

On my first date with Johnatan, I asked him this question: why would you date you?

I was 34 years old. I didn’t have time to waste. I needed to know upfront if this guy and I could work. And here’s what he said:

“I’m a provider. I’m all-in. And I’m ready.”

With those simple words, my heart jumped! 8 months later we were engaged, and 3 months after that we were married. 😍

So I asked myself a similar question today: why would I do business with me?

There are thousands of Consultants out there, offering essentially the same thing. But here’s what you need to know about me:

1. I am committed. I am committed to the vision of this business and committed to helping my team be the best they can be. I have taken on my role in my business full time, and through that I am committed to finding the best ways to help those that partner with me, sharing every triumph and failure with full transparency.

2. I am connected. My team leaders are truly the best! Not only are they commonly recognized by corporate for their success, but they share exclusive information with us all the time that helps our businesses grow. I’ve never met a more generous group of people with such dedication to those that partner with them.

3. I am passionate. I am hungry for knowledge – about these products and about this business and eagerly share that with my team. But with that passion, I also yield discernment. I meet my team where they are – if they are ready to run, I am laced up and running along stride for stride.

Just like I was on that first date with Johnatan, I believe there are people out there searching for something more, but need to cut to the chase on what exactly is being offered. So there you have it. Me – in three simple points. If that made your heart jump, let’s connect today about how we can partner together.

Unlimited

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

un·lim·it·ed
ˌənˈlimidəd/
adjective
not limited or restricted in terms of number, quantity, or extent.

Do you know what that word really means?

I didn’t. ESPECIALLY when it came to money. Before I married my financially savvy husband, I maaaaaaay have been known to put groceries on my credit card. Ha!

But when you know that your earning potential is UNLIMITED – it sets your sights on GREATER things. Groceries, mortgages, car payments, school – those are all temporary payments. The financial access that I have with my business allows me to think BEYOND payments and on to LIFE CHANGING possibilities – for me as well as thousands of others!!!

Stop and think about that for a minute. What could you do with UNLIMITED resources? Even lottery money runs out! smile emoticon I have already replaced my “real job” income, and my checks continue to grow at an average of 20% each month. But what’s better…….my monthly donation to Justice Ministries has increased 274% since my first contribution!!! I’m already praying about additional organizations to partner with as THAT is the kind of resources I am plugged in to!

It requires work – don’t let anyone tell you differently. But this is why I do it – to be a river a resources to other people. If my few hours a day can open me up more to flow more blessings onto others, you better believe that I will be giving this “job” my ALL!

What could YOU do if you were UNLIMITED?!?!

People Tell Me I Am Annoying

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I often hear people say, “I’m interested in your business, but I don’t want to annoy people on Facebook.” Ha! Giiiiiiirrrrrl, we’ve ALL been annoying people on Facebook since the day we signed up. For me, that was in 2005. I started with my rants about my students (I used to teach 6th grade), then it progressed into my boastful encounters with celebrities (I used to work in TV production in Nashville), to my self-deprecating humor about my single life (I used to…well, that one really doesn’t need explaining), to pictures of my cat, to….well, you get the point.

If you think you aren’t annoying your friends just because you’re not doing this business, you’re wrong. From incessant amount of selfies, to memes of celebrities, to pictures of your dinner (really? Most annoying of all. I mean, if you’re not inviting me over to share, then just stop), to pictures your kids literally making the exact same face they made in the last 378 pics you posted of them THAT DAY, to…well, you get the point.

At least now I’m actually offering you something that can benefit you – either for your skin or for your future. And for that…you’re welcome.

Be YOURSELF!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Not too long ago, I was struggling to find my place in Corp America. I loved all the people around me, but the jobs themselves left me unfulfilled on a personal level. My strengths were not being strengthened, and by default, my personality was slowly being filed away into some bottom drawer under “B” for “Boring.”

It got to a point where I didn’t even recognize myself anymore. The creative side of me was so underutilized that I found myself asking my close friends, “Remember when I used to be funny? That was real, right? It existed, right?”

Joining an industry that is commonly mistaken as as a scam or something for stay-at-home-moms looking for ways to fill their time was a big deal for me. Yes…I wanted something different, but was I willing to do THAT to get it??? I wasn’t sure, but I really felt like I had no other choice but to try.

After doing my own research, I took the leap of faith…and then something cool happened.

Not one month in to my new business did I feel my soul starting to awaken like a slow, but glorious sunrise! It wasn’t just the ability to be creative again, it was the ability to be ME again! 100% me.

As I am just days (hours, maybe…who knows) away from welcoming my little baby girl, I am so grateful that she is getting to meet ME, and not some drained version that slightly resembles me. I’m so grateful that I get to give her ME, and not some distracted person that has to count down the days before I return to my bottom drawer file. And I’m so grateful that I get to be present for HER little life’s moments, and never have to miss a single one for someone else’s dream.

Is what you’re doing fulfilling you? Is it providing you a space to be YOU, 100% YOU? If not, I would be honored to share more with you about how we can change that. Will the leap be easy? Probably not. But will it be worth it? Oh you betcha! YOU are worth it!!

More than Meets the Eye

Not being one to push anything on anyone, I was not super comfortable with the idea of direct-sales. The whole “pyramid” thing confuses the heck out of me, and my mind is completely blown with all the jargon and levels of achievement, etc. With everything sounding so overwhelming, I would mentally peace out before you could even say “but wait…you can get a luxury CAR!”

But then I started hearing about the product more and more. Next, I would see friends of mine (SMART friends of mine…because you KNOW you have some of those friends that if you saw them doing something, you would do whatever the opposite of that was! Don’t lie…! 🙂 promoting themselves as Consultants on Facebook. Lastly, I would start running into these smart friends and see their skin and think “DANG! I have to have that!” I’m kinda known in my circle of friends as “the beauty obsessor.” Maybe it was the 3 sisters growing up, or the pageants, or the short stint in TV…whatever the case…aging for me is not an option. No ma’am, no sir. I am a Sephora employee’s dream; they see me walking in, and I immediately glaze over and soak up every word they have to say as if they were infusing life into my body. I can’t walk out of there without spending $200! It’s worse than Target for me!! But I digress…

All this to say – it became a no-brainer, and boy was I right! I am already seeing the return on my initial investment, and am watching my business grow and grow. Being able to see the beginnings of the path to financial freedom and flexibility is beyond exciting! But the BEST part….. I have the opportunity to start a God honoring business and be a blessing to others through my financial offering to Justice Ministries. I am committed to donating a percentage of my proceeds to this amazing organization that is committed to combating sex trafficking and sexual exploitation of women, with a focus on rescue & housing. As Justice Ministries strives to end this inhumane crime, we can each help in promoting this cause through my give back program.  I refuse to allow this change to start and stop with me. I want to be a vessel of love to pour out onto my customers, my team and my ministry! I want a business that is always pointing back to God, Honoring Him first which will allow me to be my best for others.

Join me in the fight against Human Trafficking! For more information about Justice Ministries, please visit their website.

Your Attitude is Aging You

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Tip, Tip, HOORAY!!

It’s that time of the week again when I open up my Treasure of Tips and pour out wisdom to my 10s of readers. (Cyber-High Five to my fans!)

Ladies – you want a skin tip??? Today’s is short and sweet: Get those eyebrows out of your hairline! “What is she talking about?” you ask. I’m talking about our attitudes. Too often, we allow our situations to take over our faces, causing us to scowl, squint and stretch our eyebrows to the heavens. But all that reaction does is contort your face and cause wrinkles. That situation, be it a silly boy, a micro-managing boss, a pushy friend, a sassy sister, a misbehaving pet, whatever it is – it will pass! I promise you! But what will last are those wrinkles that you caused with your attitude.

One of my older sisters once said to me, “learn to respond, not react, to situations.” (Clearly, wisdom runs in my family. Ha!) That simple rule of thumb will not only save relationships and your reputation, but it will also help you fight the signs of aging. Now, I’m not saying to go through life expressionless, but raising your eyebrows every time someone ticks you off is just not becoming. Take a page from The Chive and “Keep Calm and _______.” Save your lines for the good times, the laughs, the sweet moments when your significant surprises you with a romantic surcee, nights out with your girls, etc.
