Rewind the clock to 5 short months ago…I was a quiet stay at home mom who kept to myself and my small circle of friends. I would never dream of putting myself out there for possible failure. My confidence level was at an all time low. I was used to having a full time job making very good money and feeling like I was contributing to our household. Even though I knew I was just by taking care of our 22 month little boy it still didn’t seem the same.
In February I was approached about becoming an ItWorks distributor. I listened, but didn’t really give it much thought. A couple weeks later someone requested me as a friend on Instagram and I was looking through her pictures. I noticed she was also a distributor. I read through her posts and was intrigued. I decided to reach out to her…just for the heck of it. She told me how I could make anywhere from $200-$6000 plus a month. Of course my mind went to “yeah right”. But something told me to continue to follow her and just keep watching. As I was seeing her posts I was seeing her success. I thought to myself why couldn’t this be me??? But I also had every excuse in the book…I live in a small town, no one I know will buy anything, I’m too quiet to do this, I only have 101 followers on Instagram…and the list goes on. So, I talked with my husband. We discussed the $99 to join and was IT really going to WORK?? Or are we just throwing $99 down the drain that we could be using to buy diapers?!? I then found out that with this new distributor kit I would get 4 of the skinny wraps that I was REALLY wanting to try. So…it was decided! I was going to do this! I was going to be THAT girl!! That so called #BOSSBABE or #MOMBOSS!! I was excited yet nervous about putting myself out there on social media. The thought of failing made me want to throw up! But the thought of being successful was way stronger!
And so the adventure began…I had no idea what I was doing. But when I say the support is amazing, that doesn’t even begin to describe the support I had. I started posting. I started requesting more friends. I started putting myself out there. The first few weeks…NOTHING!!
I thought to myself “thats it, I’m failing”. “I can’t do this”. “I want to quit”.
Just like everything else in my life! If I don’t succeed right away…I’m done….I’m over it. I talked to a couple girls on my team. They told me to stay positive and keep trying and promised me if I do that “it will happen”. I decided I would give it another month and see what happened. I kept plugging away, posting daily, following up with people, doing everything I was supposed to be doing. Then it happened. I was nearing the end of my first 30 days and in 2 days I got 4 customers! I was ecstatic! It was just the lift I needed to put my mind into positivity mode! Over the next month I continued to get more customers. In May I got my first promotion to Executive leader and between May and June I had 12 distributors sign up under me. This was when I knew I could do this.
I am continuing my success and it feels so good! What I was hoping to be an extra $200 or $300 a month has turned into so much more! It is helping my family. It has given me my confidence back. I have made so many friends in this business! It has paid off debt and we now have financial freedom! Most of all it lets me stay home with my son. Every day I get to enjoy him, see him grow up and be there for him and for this I am so thankful. This is why I love this company and all that it stands for! And, if you are asking…YES IT REALLY DOES WORK!!! The business aspect of being successful works and the products work! I would not be successful nor would I be working for this company if I truly didn’t believe in these products and this opportunity! I prayed and prayed for God to lead me in the right direction! And here I am today 5 months later thanking God for guiding me to my decision to say YES!!
I would love to talk to anyone about this business opportunity and to work one on one with you to help you build your business and become successful! I know I can help you and your family find financial freedom or I have a product to help you with your heath goals! Contact me and lets chat!
