The Kind of Woman I Wanted To Be

Standard
The Kind of Woman I Wanted To Be

Looking back on my 10 declared majors, countless seminars, job hopping, network marketing experiences, many ideas, and partnerships; I knew I wanted to change the world. This is an ambitious and idealistic thought, but a Good One. Now I’m starting to make a difference in my community while helping others.

Back then I didn’t know what I had to do. I was open to everything. I rarely took jobs that weren’t service oriented (whether public-facing or in-company) and in those instances either quickly worked myself out of a job (in far less time that the company thought it would take), threatened a higher up with the thought that I was trying to steal their position, or circumstances forced me out (the company going out of business, employees stealing my sales, or was laid off due to the industry tanking).

The positions, I was let go from, were small to medium fast growing companies where I got to make outdated systems scalable, had to work with hundreds of people daily to solve problems, AND had the independence to do what I thought would work. I preferred positions that didn’t have fixed duties, and I had free reign to get projects done. These positions made me think for myself, let me be creative, and later recognized me for my accomplishments. Some didn’t pay all that well in the beginning. However, as I showed my capabilities I started receiving more and I could afford to live in a 2 bedroom rental apartment in Santa Monica, had enough to pay for day care and basic needs, AND had some extra to save!

What most people don’t understand is that I LOVE working, I LOVE challenges, and I LOVE helping others! I don’t care about my title (although I have had a few amazing ones). Money is not my motivator. (It’s good to get but it doesn’t wake me in the middle of the night to solve a problem I was pouring over at work.) I don’t want the beautiful corner office. (One of my favorite jobs was a door to door sales person) I LOVE looking back and taking stock of what I have accomplished. (Training sales people was fun! Revamping the whole registration system to accommodate more than 250 attendees was challenging! Designing an automated system to underwrite applicants was entertaining!) I LOVE knowing I made a difference!

Entrepreneurs are the unemployable.

Real estate Bestselling Author Robert Allen also said that the average person simply doesn’t understand” and that is ok. My job as an entrepreneur is to solve problems while showing others it can be done. The problem that I’m busy solving right now is building up and enriching my community.

I was reading a “comic” strip that someone had posted that really irked me. The basic idea was I’m helpless pity me! I had to comment and in the end stated that I don’t find it funny or that people (especially Americans – sorry I’ve lived here most of my life and this is what I see) feel entitled and just want to wallow in their self pity. It bothered me that someone before me said that it was funny then went on a rant about how people need to trust in god to bring what we need. I’m not putting down any religion; however, I think many people need to get off their behinds and do something. We are taught by the school system, government, and media that we are helpless to make a difference. Choose strength and empowerment!

If we are just to go along for the ride the future looks VERY BLEAK! President Obama, our first black president, has shown people that regardless of skin color anyone can make it into office! I think he has done much in the way of helping this country and our misperceived limitations; but there is still much more that we the people need to decide for ourselves AND have the courage to do something that can make a difference.

Did you (Americans) notice that when the media was going on and on about how our economy was as bad as The Great Depression, people were still driving luxury cars, taking nice vacations and sending their kids to participate in extracurricular activities? I know millions lost their homes and jobs. Sadly a large chunk of those couldn’t find another job or if they did they were underemployed as it couldn’t support their lifestyles. Think of the new college grads competing with seasoned employees for entry level positions. I think one of the first things we as a community need to do is figure out what is truly important and decide to move towards it.

 I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be.

Today I work as a Professional Network Marketer who’s main focus is to work with non-profit organizations by implement fundraising initiatives that financially benefit supporters. These initiatives bring added income to local business owners, health professionals, and entrepreneurs. The company brings better products which are cost effective to consumers. Most importantly it leverages the community’s population to build something much bigger! All the while NOT ASKING SUPPORTERS TO REACH INTO THEIR POCKETS TO GIVE MONEY! Can you imagine helping a non-profit by earning money AND saving money while teaching others to do the same?

There are quite a few legitimate network marketing companies that are making a true difference in people’s lives. Are you going to follow the ignorant masses who really have no idea of what network marketing is or are you ready to educate and empower yourself? 

This week I’m speaking with a very influential man. He has the power to decide if a couple hundred non-profits in South Florida can utilize this program. Recently I put my WHY into words. I love the fact that as I’m saying my WHY I feel my heart sings! I feel exhilarated and have purpose!

My WHY? Be a Leader in Building Thriving Communities and empowering others to do the same in their area

Happy New Year! Can I assist you?

When I saw this quote on my Google+ feed I knew this was my goal for 2015. Seeing this year as a blank slate I see things that freak me out a little:

I hit my all time not pregnant weight which is almost my full term pregnancy weight. I went walking with a friend on the 2nd and within the first 10 minutes was out of breath. Though proudly I was able to manage my breathing and finish an hour long walk while talking.

I talked about my professional image and getting loads of advice on my 10, 30 and 60 second “commercials”. And the importance of a 5 and 10 minute description of what I do. I was also advised to attend every BNI event in South Florida.

Not only do I want to do that I’ve opened myself to finding a mentor who can work with me professionally – Network Marketer who earns a million dollars each month. I want that confidence and poise when speaking with people.

Also this past weekend I answered a post on LinkedIn to describe what I do in 7 words or less. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this exercise as it forced my to look at what I do and put it in concise, easy to understand language.

Implement fundraising initiatives that financially benefit supporters

Promote health and economic growth to communities

Train ambitious people basic skills to succeed

These also sum up why I’m an entrepreneur and keep me focused on my WHY.

I lastly decided to completely delve into becoming a PROFESSIONAL Network Marketer. After watching the documentary Rise of the Entrepreneur Search for a Better Way I fully understand this business and am confident on how to answer the typical questions of “Is this a pyramid scheme?”, “Is this a scam?” And my favorite comment “These things never work”. My goal is to help 1000 non-profits earn the full income potential my company pays out by helping entrepreneurs succeed, professionals flourish, business owners save money and “ordinary people” build a better personal economy.

Back to my health I’m transitioning to becoming a Nutritarian. As of right now 70 percent of my caloric intake is plant based. I got a Nutra Ninja Pro for Boxing Day *laughing* and drink 3-5 vegetable smoothies per day. I’ve already lost 8 lbs and 8 inches! Next week should be more as I am starting HIIT training today. I’ll keep you updated and if you would like to join me feel free to find and contact me on G+. I’ll happily connect with you.

I love the end of the year as it forces me to take stock of my life and start making little changes towards big goal so that by the time of the new year I’ve already started making new habits.

Embracing My Reality

Embracing My Reality

Do you wake up every morning with a spring in your step, eager to face the world? Or were you like me who hated my job, had to bear an 45 minute commute and deal with the office politics, drab ambiance and negative attitudes? I really didn’t like what I was doing as I didn’t feel challenged or like I was making a difference in my community.

I had settled for this reality for too long. I took a leap of faith on network marketing. Losing my way there also. I enjoyed the public speaking, the helping others build extra income, and the talking with random people. What I didn’t like was seeing a person need help but was too afraid to take it, believe that they had “job security”, and think that network marketing was just about retail.

In the past couple weeks I’ve embraced my true purpose in life and reality. I’m a visionary and leader. Eric Worre had taught me in his Insanity Bootcamp that people look at me then my campaign THEN my business opportunity. I love helping others and making a positive difference that can me measured. Thankfully have found a few divisions within my company that allows me to build my community.

Do you know a charity that needs help fundraising? Do you know any non profits that could use extra money? Is your child in school with a PTA or PTSA that is asking you to sell chocolates, wrapping paper or useless nick knacks to have a bigger budget to improve the quality of school life? The NPO division gives non profit organizations the ability to earn royalties without having their supporters pull extra money out of their pockets than what they are already spending!

Do you know a health professional who is struggling? Are you a health professional who is frustrated with your profit margin? Feeling overwhelmed with your insurance, payroll and other monthly costs just to stay open? Do you get questions from your current clientele about supplements and just referred them to the local drug store? The Nutrametrix product line is made specifically for helping licensed health professionals build a strong foundation and promote health to their clientele through education and supplements.

Do you know anyone who is passionate to help others become healthy? Do you know anyone who is overweight and just spinning their wheels in losing weight? TLS product line is made specifically to educate and promote living a healthy lifestyle.

Are you a seasoned employee who is now unemployed? Were you laid off because your job is now being outsourced? Are you a grad coming out of college without a job? Don’t you think it’s time for a change? Some companies have already changing work from hourly pay to salary knowing that the average person will put in 5 – 15 extra hours just to get their work done while not get extra compensation. I think in communities there should be basic skills training to succeed in network marketing as this is where the money is and these skills can be used in other industries. The main business Market America gives people the freedom to be their own boss.

My next posts will go deeper in details for each division and how it can benefit you, someone you know AND your community.

Better Attitude

Standard
Better Attitude

When I started my network marketing career my focus was on how can I earn money. I forgot my attitude that it doesn’t matter how much I make as long as I enjoy what I’m doing. Over the months the work got to be really hard and I felt like I was stalling. With school recently starting and PTSA/PTAs needing assistance raising money, I turned my attention to helping my community’s non profit organizations.

With this I don’t have to bother my friends and family to buy things they don’t want or need, get exposed to hundreds in my community, and feel great helping others. To top it off I earn a living talking with and helping people.

I left a good paying job that was not fulfilling and life draining. With a leap of faith that network marketing works, a desire to make a difference in other people’s lives and the knowing that I can do so much more I found so much more! I look forward to every meeting. I look forward to talking with people. AND I never feel like I’m imposing as I truly have something that helps my community and those who contact me!

If you know of a non profit organization that needs help fund raising please have them contact me. I will gladly assist!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Duplicatability Overrated, Helping Charities

Standard

image

My experience in Network Marketing is that when I have an idea that reflects my personality and abilities some of my senior partners will basically slap me down with “not being duplicatable”. I appreciate that there are some tried and true skills and systems that I can utilize, but being that my goals, personality and abilities are different isn’t it normal that some of my approaches be original? My team is open to the initiatives that I’m launching and want guidance to start duplicating what I’m doing.

I’m working with some of the local PTSAs and nonprofits that my son is a part of earn a potential of $187,200 annually in royalties without them having to ask supporters for money outright! How many charities do you know that can use the extra money? The process is simple and it takes time to build momentum but this is doable! Contact me to help local charities.

Thinking BIGGER

I am the change I want to see

I am the change I want to see

After launching Put Health Back in Healthcare I was talking to an entrepreneur coach, Larry Jacobson, who saw my video and offered a free 30 minute consult. He picked apart what my goals were and how to relate them. He restructured how I need to order my videos to talk to the target audience. He also helped me to think BIGGER!

In my video I had stated that I wanted to

  1. Change the perception of Network Marketing
  2. Recruit and Train 5,000 ambitious South Floridians
  3. Assist 10,000 South Floridian Licensed Health Professionals

 

He said that my vision will automatically change people’s perception of Network Marketing so not to say it, just do it.

And the amount of people involved will make a difference within my community. *my goal* He then said that I should work with non-profits first. Thankfully my network marketing company has a NPO division which is free for the NonProfit and can earn a potential of $187,200 annually.

I’ve already spoken to my son’s school’s PTSA and will call all the schools in my county to assist them with this initiative.

My view has expanded from Put Health Back in Healthcare to Keep Money in the Community.
