How to Start Making Money With It Works

 5 years ago, I took a leap of faith and tried something NEW – totally out of my comfort zone!!

Guys  I’m a total introvert and honestly never ever saw myself doing anything like this… but I had a burning desire to be able to give back more than we had ever given before.

We tried to cut our budget, but there was just no more room to cut (so we cut our upcoming trip to Disney and a new van for me)

I didn’t like having to say “no” to my kids… I just knew there was something more I could do. So… I started a business for $99.  read more

What is It Works?

Over three years ago I heard about It Works for the very first time…

I was really interested in the products, because I was a new mom looking to get back in shape and get my flat stomach again.


I started as a customer… but about six months later – I started looking for a way to make some extra money from home. 

It made a lot of sense to me to become a distributor because I was already talking about how much I loved my results!


Once I joined, I soon realized how amazing this company was and that I was exactly where I was supposed to be.


Watch my short video to learn more about It Works:


To be able to connect and become a partner with a company who values being debt free, giving back, and has a Christian foundation… I just couldn’t believe how lucky I was!!

How to Choose the Right Company for Your Home Based Business

I never in a million years thought I would ever own a home based business… but when I actually took the time to learn more about how they work and how I could partner with one to earn extra money from home, my whole view changed.

It is important to partner with the right company for you, and I share some tips to help you choose the right company.


How to choose the right company:


Debt Free

One thing that was very important to me was that I wouldn’t go into debt starting my business. I loved that I could run my business debt free from day one and that my company celebrated paying off debt (they have been debt free since 2001). It was a very low start up cost ($99) and I was able to make that back in my first day. read more

How to earn extra money with It Works!

Three years ago, I was looking for a way to help my family financially without having to leave my girls. My friend told me how she was earning a full time income at home by helping others get healthy and feel their best. I thought it was too good to be true, but I had to learn more because that was exactly what I wanted to do!

I learned how I could get paid three different ways with It Works and start earning some extra money on my own time. I had never done anything like this before, but I knew in my heart that I couldn’t let this opportunity pass.

I started my own home  based business and was able to make a full time income from my home in just a few months. Watch my video to learn how you can start making extra money from home too.

Three ways to earn money with It Works:

Wrap Cash

First way to earn money is by selling Body Wraps and Facials for $25 each. You get 4 wraps in your kit and you can sell those to run your business debt free from the start!


As soon as you get started, you will have your own website where customers can order products that will be shipped directly to them. This means that you don’t have to carry any stock (Yay!) or deal with shipping (Double Yay!). You get paid for connecting customers to products that can help them look and feel their best.


It Works is a Debt Free Company and they love their distributors. They offer us many bonuses that change year to year. There is one bonus that you can always earn and we call it a Fast Start Bonus. You earn $100 each time you have a new team member get their first two customers. It is like a “Great Job for helping your friend get started!” Bonus.

P.S. If you are ready to start your own business, we would love to welcome you to our team! You can get started HERE.

P.S.S. If you have any questions, we would love to talk! Send us a message and we will get back with you as soon as possible:

How To Eat Enough Protein Without Meat

I was never a huge meat eater… and it wasn’t really on purpose. I just tended to eat more carbs (even healthy ones) but I realized how important protein really was for my health and weight loss goals.

When I was pregnant, my midwife told me that I needed even more protein in my diet to help my baby grow. That’s when I started looking for ways to add protein into my diet without eating more meat.


What my video to learn how I added more protein into my diet without eating more meat:


Non Meat Protein Sources:

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Quinoa
  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Peanut Butter
  • Nuts
  • Chia Seeds
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Ezekiel Bread
  • Eggs
  • Hummus


When I was pregnant, I dealt with so many food aversions and almost ALL Meat was off the list… that’s when I really learned about using protein powders and how they can supplement your protein intake.


Now, my whole family loves drinking smoothies and making snacks using protein powder to keep us full longer and avoid the sugar crashes.


What is your favorite way to add protein into your diet?

    Transformation Tuesday: How Julie Lost 30 Pounds

    One of the BEST things about having a health and wellness business is the AMAZING stories we get to hear from our customers and team members. A passion of mine has always been helping people feel their best. When I first met Julie and heard some of her story, I just knew that I had to share it with you. I know it will be just as inspiring for you as it was for me.


    From Julie:

    In 2013 I had a disc rupture in my lower back that sent me into emergency spinal surgery. I was off work for several weeks, then finally recovered and it happened again just 2 weeks after being back to work. In total I have had 3 surgeries and multiple injections and prescriptions spanning 2 years. I’ve been on pain medication and steroids for inflammation and had many sleepless nights. I also gained so much weight because of lack of mobility and the pain was a daily struggle.


    I worked in the surgical department at a nearby hospital and my personal surgeon told me I wouldn’t get better until I was off my feet. That my job was only making the problem worse and I wouldn’t heal standing on my feet for hours on end, lifting patients and heavy equipment day after day. I loved my job and I loved helping people but the pain was unbearable most days. All of the pain and frustration led me to a really dark place in my life I was irritable and no fun to be around. I was a horrible wife and did not have my best days as a mother either. Even sitting on the floor playing legos was unthinkable. I shut out people I cared about and threw a giant pitty-party for myself.


    The weight gain frankly just made me sad.

    Every picture of myself was cropped from the waist down because I couldn’t stand to see just how big I had gotten. Some people say it wasn’t noticeable (I think they are just being polite). For me, I had always been a small framed girl, so this was really hard to swallow.


    In 2015, I decided I couldn’t continue this cycle of being over-weight and tired and weak. I couldn’t work out because I was tired and I was over-weight because I didn’t work out and I was weak and not helping the pain because I was over-weight. I decided I had to do something.


    So for an entire year I was like a yo-yo.

    I’d lose the weight and put it back on and I would eat right for a while and then I would cave…. so began another vicious cycle.

    At the end of this year I became very ill and had to have another surgery. This sent me back to the pain meds and the weight gain. And I was sad again for months I just figured.. “Well I am 43 years old and the mother of 2 boys, maybe this is just how it is…”


    I was Ready for a Change

    Early in 2016 (3 Years after the incident), I was done feeling sorry for myself and decided I could have the best body of my life and be pain free if I wanted it bad enough. So I began searching for help! I need supplements and protein shakes and energy. But where do you find all of that? Well, I researched and talked to people representing different companies and they were all outside of my budget. I wanted to do whatever it takes but I had to be smart. And then it happened! I saw a post about It Works on my cousins Facebook page (I had never heard of It Works and didn’t know anything of the wraps but …. there it was a numbered list of “what ails you”. And I responded….



    From that day It Works has changed my life! I decided if I was going to do it, I had to really do it and give the whole system a try. My distributor recommended we start with Greens for energy, It’s Vital Core Nutrition for overall health and cravings, and Advanced Formula Fat Fighters to start blocking some of the fat and not add more to what I was already battling. I decided to start on them all, and I was surprised at how affordable it was compared to some of the other products I had considered. Once I started this system of products I never looked back.




    I made a Lifestyle Change


    I really make an effort to do my part to help the It Works supplements by eating clean and cut out all the “rewards” that were food based. (I didn’t need cupcakes just because the kids were having them.) I didn’t really like coffee but I drank it for the pick me up in the morning, problem was by the time I was done making a cup it had so much sugar and cream in it, it tasted like a candy bar and I was drinking hundreds of calories. I haven’t had a soda of any kind and no coffee or tea in months. I only drink water and I limit my “cheat” meals including carbs and sweets. 

    Greens has helped me cut out 100% of the caffeine intake that I thought was keeping my energy up. read more

    Last year, It Works announced their FIRST EVER Cruise!! I hadn’t been on a cruise in almost 10 years, so when I heard that I could win a cruise trip for FREE… I was ALL ears!!

    To win the cruise, you had to be a distributor with It Works, then you earned points based on steps to build your business. So, I could win a get-away trip just for building my business??? This was going to be AWESOME!!!!

    I didn’t know if I would earn a trip, but I was going to try my best!!!

    After working hard for 3 months (Just doing the steps to success), I remember watching the names scroll to see if I had won… and there it was – MY NAME!!!

    Not just me, but so many of my friends were able to go on this cruise with me!!! This was such a great vacation away with Adam and so much fun to be there with like minded friends and team members.

    I got to meet so many other families who were just like us! Some were full time at home like we are building our businesses and some were working part time. The main thing that brought us together is that we had found a better way…

    A better way of living life.

    A way to pay off debt. A way to get more time with our family. A way to dream again.



    I never dreamed I could do so much with my home based business. When I started, I just wanted to earn an extra $500 a month so we could give more and not have to stress. It has brought me so much more into my life. As you can see, we have made lasting friendships, we have paid off debt, we have been able to give more than ever before and we are living our dream life working full time at home.


    I wanted to share this, with you because It Works JUST announced that they are bringing the cruise BACK!!! This is YOUR time to start your business and earn your FREE cruise vacation. Come on a trip with us to celebrate!!

    Welcome to July!!




    Welcome to July!!! We can’t believe how fast this summer is going. We wanted to update you on a few things going on in our life – some EXCITING things are happening!!


    We spent the 4th of July as a family : ) the best!! We made the girls new No-Sew Fleece blankets (Frozen Themed, of course!!)



    Some news with our home business, We just promoted!!!!! I still can’t believe this is happening so fast (it seems like it is flying!!) Just 14 months in the company and we are Presidential Diamonds now (Top Earners in the company, averaging over $16,000 a month).





    Of course it all started with This Crazy Wrap Thing!! We are heading to Florida for Green Carpet with It Works, so I’m wrapping my stomach to Tighten and Tone : ) image



    This is the reason why I started my business last year… Love all the time with these girls. image



    And who can forget the FOOD??? Here is my latest Pizza I made from the Trim Healthy Mama book recipe. Yum!!




    What are your plans for Summer?

    Do you have a skeptical spouse?

    When I decided to join It Works and start my own home based business, Adam was NOT on board at all. He honestly told me that I couldn’t do this. Well, obviously he changed his mind after about 2-3 weeks and said that I could join!

    I joined It Works on March 23, 2014 and 9 weeks later I had earned a $10,000 bonus – all from home! He quickly changed his mind about the company and he ended up joining as well.

    Hear his story here:


    Guys are usually the skeptical ones, but it can happen on both sides – Adam says it is usually because they don’t like change, don’t like spending money, and don’t want their partner spending time on something else : P read more

    How Sara Replaced her teaching job to be a Stay at Home Mom

    Life is full of curve balls and changes of plans, but you don’t always get a second chance.

    Saturday was one of the best highlights in my time with It Works. 

    I have been with It Works since March of 2014 (about 8 months ago). In May, I personally earned a $10,000 bonus when I was able to reach Diamond level in my first 2 months. In August, one of my best friends also went Diamond in her first 3 months and earned a $10,000 bonus and I promoted to Double Diamond. It Works was offering a Get Out of Debt Bonus for reaching Diamond level in your first 3 months.

    Teacher earns $10,000 bonus

    Sara another friend of mine joined about the same time as me (maybe a week later). She was just short of Diamond at 3 months (Emerald level), missing her chance to earn the $10,000 bonus that she was pushing for. When she fell short of the bonus… it was really disappointing. She had a lot of bills that needed to get paid and she knew that bonus would be amazing for her and her family.

    She didn’t quit her business… but she lost a little passion for it.  

    Then in October, It Works announced they were going to re-qualify everyone for the GOOD (Get Out of Debt) Bonus for November and December. This was huge news for Sara and her husband! They were still at Emerald level and were so close to Diamond. If they could earn the $10,000 bonus, it would change their family’s financial situation.

    Sara did whatever she had to do to get that bonus. She woke up at 4:30 am to work her business and then after school she would go wrap people and tell them about our products. She devoted 2 weeks of personal development to improve her leadership abilities. She was determined to do whatever it took to get that Bonus!

    After one month of giving it her all,

    she earned the $10,000 bonus on Saturday November 29th!!!  read more
