It wasn't until September of 2009 that I finally got 'IT'. The economy had tanked, stocks had plunged...business was flat and somewhat boring. Acting on a random prompting (you'll hear me use the word 'prompting' often from now on), I got on a plane and headed to Salt Lake City,Utah. Something really magical happened and I'll save that life-changing story for another day. The key highlights of that experience: a wonderful, sincere transformational leader (coolest CEO you ever met, and I mean cool as a cat!), myself, my mom and room full of at least 1500 people!!!
Fast forward to June 2010. This company has now allowed me to make a great living by touching lives and empowering others; it has blessed me by opening me up to the the truth that we are all universally connected and can only succeed by helping each other; I am helping fellow women- from savvy Entrepreneurs to stay-at-home moms, to reach out in love and kindness to others and earn a true living by giving; providing value and solutions to challenges of others; it has also taught me how to build a strong community of like-minded professionals who are committed to conducting business ethically and meaningfully.
This to me is Relationship marketing at its best! This is Network marketing at its best! It doesn't matter what opportunity or business you are involved in. It may be Avon, Arbonne, Mary Kay, Scentsy...., I believe everyone should start off with the right mindset and this company is the foundation upon which you can build success for other opportunities. Like I said earlier, I know a thing or two about successful Network marketing; no matter what anyone tells you, you need at least 12 to 18 months to have true success with any company (by true success, I mean when you can actually quit your day job and fully replace and/or exceed your income!) However, for that initial period of 12 to 18 months, you must rewire your mind to understand the concept of 'Giving to Give' and not 'Giving to Get' while also remaining consistent in sharing (not selling) your products/services/opportunities. You, of course, must also have an endless stream of leads/prospects (offline and online). 95% of those who fail in business never mastered these laws and the 5% who succeed simply live it daily-it has become part of their DNA.
Trust me: 'Appreciation wins over self promotion, every time'! and the most important word in 'Network Marketing' is 'Marketing'!
This is the company that's stolen my heart and I'll refer their service/opportunity even if I never make a dime doing so. How many people can say that about their businesses or work places?
