Just One Day?

Standard
Just One Day?

Are you fulfilled with your day to day life? I ask myself this question every, single day. Over the past couple weeks I can honestly say yes. My life is my own – I have no one to blame when I slack off but myself, BUT I have no one to praise when I accomplish the goals I set for myself but me.

Over a year ago I had decided to pursue a life of network marketing. This decision was a result of not being approved for paid time off to see my son try out for the Jamaican National Swim Team. An opportunity came up the very next day, I KNEW this was a Fantastic Opportunity, diverse and stable company, AND the Compensation Plan was simple and realistic. I started a couple days later.

My results weren’t spectacular, but I was able to keep my head above water. When I couldn’t get time off for my son’s first international meet (yes he made the team!) it stoked the internal desire. I was reminding people to download shop buddy on their computer and the app on their phone to earn Cash Back on their regular shopping.

My attitude was getting more negative, and I felt put upon at work. One day in the middle of a blaming incident (towards someone else for something I did and admitted to doing) I handed my resignation. I worked pretty consistently for the first few weeks but then with contentment I started getting lazy and slacking off. Thankfully I was attending online courses, listening to audio books, and watching instructional videos when one moved me so much that I decided to attend one.

Eric Worre was Spectacularly motivational in my life. I attended his Insanity Bootcamp and had SO many gems of wisdom to bring back to my team. The idea that resonated with me the most was People are moved by your campaign, then you THEN your opportunity. From what I’ve always learned with the teachings in network marketing is that one must promote the opportunity… nothing was ever said about a campaign or me. The inner fire got a little bigger.

I went to Insanity Bootcamp almost 2 months ago. My whole grasp of me and my campaign has changed. Now I want to Build a Better Community – helping licensed health professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners, non profits and the community. When that switch happened people started contacting me, I started meeting influential people within my community, and opportunities presented themselves.

Yesterday I replied to 7 people who were asking about this “job” and on the first reply I felt weird saying “this isn’t a job, it is a business opportunity that helps the community”. The old feelings and connotations with network marketing that I’ve experienced talking to people came back; and a small part of me felt misleading. Then I remembered something:

Network marketing is a way to freedom. It is one of the only professions that promotes self growth in order to achieve success.

There are companies that are switching from hourly pay to salary (no overtime) or strictly commission. I think that if the world is already going in that direction shouldn’t a person get paid for the foundation that they built, the products and services that they recommended and sold, and the positive difference that they make to the community? Shouldn’t each person be able to build their own dreams and have the freedom to spend time with their kids, follow their dreams, and live their passion?

I don’t think that a decision is made in one day… but the decision change course is. The feeling of accomplishment in making the decision usually is only the first day *grinning* before the fear of change or the unknown, failure or success creeps up on you. And one must battle that demon until one starts seeing the fruits of their labor. But for me the part that was sick and tired of having to answer to anyone, feeling unfulfilled, and feeling that my life was a spiral that was really wearing me down mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually is still to this day happy that I had the courage to take the first step and decide that I truly needed a change.

 

To borrow the close from my Dear Mentor Eric Worre

My wish for you is to make the decision to become a Network Marketing Professional – for you to truly Go Pro. Because it is a stone-cold fact that Network Marketing is a better way.”

Are you answering your question?

Are you answering your question?

I know I was raised to get a good education, get a good paying job and I will be happy. I found this not to be true.

I got a bachelor in business and a master in IT. Most of the time I had to dumb down my resume to even be considered for a position, then when I got the job I out grew it within months. My mind was different than most of my coworkers. I learned what I had to do, then I would look at how the system worked. My way of thinking is make the system as effective and efficient as possible. This didn’t go over well most of the time. Many supervisors thought I was trying to take their position… furthest thing from my mind. Also when I lost the feeling of accomplishment or saw that they preferred to be redundant and obsolete I had to leave.

I need to feel like I am making a difference in other people’s lives. My favorite position to date was when I went door to door as “acquisitions” and customer service for a telecommunication company. Their new service was becoming available in small pockets of the county. I was the person to introduce customers to the new product and make sure they were satisfied with what they currently had. I loved training my co-workers, meeting people at their homes, and helping them save money after looking over their bills and making them aware of their service and spending. One customer saved over $150 per month with this new program and looking up the number instead of calling 411. Not everyone was open to the new service and I was only yelled at once – by a man who told me to come back.

I was honest and told people when what they currently had was the best they could afford. I got phone calls thanking me by their families for being so honest. I was the face of customer service in the areas that I oversaw. I held this position over 6 years ago and sometimes will run into someone that I had visited. I was impressed that those I ran into remembered my name and truly cared about my well being. Just recollecting the artist at a Arts Festival in South Miami or a woman at Costco brings me to tears knowing that I made such an impact that they remembered me so long after I had visited them at their homes.

I feel that this is the answer to my life questions. How can I best serve my community? How can I truly make a positive difference?

Building a Better Community – Fundraising Assistance

Do you know a local non profit that needs assistance fundraising? How about a house of worship? A charity? Or the local school’s pta/ptsa?

As a single mom with a very engaged teen I have many obligations to participate in fundraisers. From my son’s 2 local swim teams, his school’s PTSA, and 2 music organizations he is a part of, I have a lot of money to donate and personally raise. I have found a company that helps non profits raise a potential of $187,000 without asking supporters to reach in their pockets for more money.

If you know a non profit who can benefit from this forward this and have them contact me. I want to help you Build a Better Community.

Refinding My Center and Helping You Find Yours

While meditated for guidance I wasn’t aware that I received anything but woke the next day suddenly deciding to visit my grandmother. Upon entering the cemetery I found my center.
