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. read more

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. read more

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. read more

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),

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. read more
