Why did a chemical engineer and a speech therapist get started in network marketing?
Angela – Looking back… I’m not really sure why I chose speech therapy as a career. I mean, I started because I really liked the idea of helping people. I liked the idea of having fun with kids and helping them communicate.
But it wasn’t something I was passionate about.
I was good at it… and I thought that if I was good at it, and it was a great job… then that’s all that mattered.
I really think the process of becoming a mom is one of the most impactful things that can happen to a women.
If you are a mom reading this, I’m sure you can relate.
When I went through labor, and I held that little baby for the first time… I think I was reborn too.
I found a piece of me that wasn’t scared to do what I wanted… and say what I wanted to say – even if it wasn’t popular.
I wanted to be the best mom I could be for my baby… and I wanted to be home with her not working hours and hours outside of the home.
So, I became a stay at home mom… and we cut the budget.
I started blogging and finding my creative voice – leaning into my passion for health and wellness… something that had always been there… but I didn’t really know how to turn that into an income.
Life went on.
We moved to Virginia with Adam’s work and I got pregnant with baby number two pretty soon after.
I had Annaleigh… and I started feeling self conscious.
My passion was health and wellness… but I was not getting results. My post baby body was making me feel stuck and depressed.
So I reached out to a friend who was sharing her results and just wanted to know more about what she was using.
I really just wanted a boost in the right direction… something to give me hope that I could get back in my pre-pregnancy jeans again.
That I could feel confident again.
She shared with me what she was using and I couldn’t wait to try it! I wanted to feel excited again getting dressed in new clothes. I wanted to feel confident when seeing my reflection in the mirror.
I tried the products… and for the first time in months… I had hope again…
This wasn’t a “quick fix” for me.
This wasn’t a replacement for my healthy choices.
This was a way for a new mom to feel like myself again. To do something for ME! To motivate me that I could lose the baby weight.
When I started using the products… I saw how much I could make if I started sharing these products with other moms.
I thought – I know so many moms who want to feel like this… who want more confidence, energy, and want natural solutions.
But I didn’t start right away…
It actually took a church service to give me the confidence to say “yes!”
The message was just calling me to give more than ever before… and I knew that if I was going to give more… I would need an income, haha.
But I was not going to just go back to work… or start any sort of business I had seen my friends try.
Because… you see… I’m an introvert. I was living 1000 miles away from my friends and family. If I was going to do this, I would need to do it online.
There was no way I was going to do a party based business with two young kids at home.
When I saw that this was something that allowed me to stay home with my babies, set my own schedule, make as much money as I wanted…
I knew this was what I wanted to do.
So a few months later, I upgraded my account to a brand rep.
9 weeks later, I earned a $10,000 bonus… without leaving my home.
I don’t know what kind of business you are looking for… but I know what kind of business I wanted.
- I wanted to use my passions for helping people.
- I wanted to be able to work on my own schedule.
- I wanted to be able to work from anywhere!
- I wanted to make as much money as I could with no income cap.
- I wanted to do something that made a difference.
If this sounds like something you would want more info about… we would love to share more about our business with you!
