The direct sales industry is the only career path I know where education, experience and financial status truly have no impact on your success. The world is your oyster. In most cases, the one thing holding a new direct seller back is self-worth or self-confidence.
Many of us have spent years telling ourselves we’re not good enough…or allowing others to speak those lies over us. And that’s exactly what those are…lies. Listen to them no more.
You are destined for greatness. Speak life over your future and hope into those around you. The world needs what you offer. Share your … Read the rest

I discovered Influenster back in June and am so excited to be a part of their network!
For my first VoxBox campaign with them, I was chosen to review the newest addition to Aveeno’s Positively Radiant line – the Targeted Tone Corrector.
I’ll admit, as an independent representative for a dermatologist-created skincare line, I’m VERY choose with what I put on my face. I’ve dealt with skin issues my entire life. I’ve used drugstore brands, high-end department store brands, luxury spa brands and prescription-strength creams, washes and antibiotics…all in an effort to get my skin under control. I’ve struggled with … Read the rest

I’ve been in the network marketing industry since 2009. I’ve encountered a lot of objections to this business model since then and hope to address some of the more common ones here on the blog over time.
One common response to sharing a network marketing opportunity with someone is “I don’t know enough people.”
According to The New York Times, the average person knows about 600 people. Later in the article, they mention that the average person knows 10-25 people well enough to say they trust them. Even with that lower number, when you take … Read the rest

I’m keeping today’s post super short! We’re celebrating sweet Prince George today since it’s his 1st birthday!
Here are some of my favorite photos of the little prince from the last year. Those cheeks!! I just want to peench them!! (Yes, I know how to spell pinch, but “peench” is the southern, giggly version of pinch.)
Pre-teen confession: I’ve been a “royal watcher” since I was a little girl. Feel in love with Princess Diana and swore one day I would marry Prince William.
Obviously, that didn’t happen…but … Read the rest

When I started my network marketing business in 2009, I had hardly any “extra time” left in my schedule. I was working 40+ hours per week in a cubicle for my public relations job and I was also engaged to be married, so we were planning our wedding. The last thing I thought I had time for was a side business.
What I realized, however, was that most successful network marketers started their networking careers alongside another full-time gig. The beauty of network marketing is that it’s a very social business. You might also call it “lifestyle marketing” because a … Read the rest

History has been an interesting subject to me for many years. I grew up in a house full of Native American artifacts, World War II memorabilia and old stamps – all interests of my father. The stories behind many of these items fascinated me. Many of them were passed down to my dad, so not only was I curious about the items themselves, but also the people they came from.
Once our household got a computer, scanner and printer, Dad decided it would be a good idea to preserve some … Read the rest

Community involvement and volunteerism are hugely important to me. I’ve descended from a long line of individuals who have planted deep roots in their communities and positively impacted the people around them. I am so thankful for this rich heritage and feel called to do the same. This is what we’re put on the earth to do – serve others and make the world a better place.
I believe we all want to lighten the burdens of those around us. We want our communities to thrive and we want to leave the world in a happier shape than we found … Read the rest
