What can I say other than "I know you." I know the struggles you are going through as you are navigating your way through the world of network marketing. You were promised that it was totally doable. You've read the success stories of people who have gone from nothing to everything and you've made up your mind that you are ready to rock it this time, but you can't help but feel loss. You've made the list of people in your warm market, but you don't feel comfortable talking to your friends and family about your "new endeavor." It just doesn't feel right. You've dug into all kinds of training and still feel lost. You agree with everything you hear, but you just don't know how and where to start.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND RELAX. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
I am with you. I am right next to you.
I had a similar story. I got introduced into network marketing years ago into a health and wellness company. I tried the product, lost some weight but was not successful. I didn't have the drive and motivation and didn't believe in the product. How was drinking a shake twice a day a practical way to lose weight? How was it a sustainable lifestyle? I left network marketing feeling defeated and vowing never to try it again.
Fast forward to this year. I recently turned 30 years old. (Yes, you know my age so you know I will be totally open with you.) For me, it was like a light bulb went off in my head. I have been married for almost 8 years, and have two boys. (ages 6 and 2) My two year old has special needs so I have my hands full. It took me way longer than it should have to graduate and get my degree in Psychology and even though I tried working, it didn't work out and I had to leave my counseling career a short 6 months after starting. I was devastated and depressed. I was at home caring for my kiddos, while my degree (and student loan debt) went to waste. As I sat at home, I tried to "buy" my happiness by becoming an Amazon addict and spiraled into the world of online shopping, which proved to be a very unhealthy and toxic habit. Six months of hard earned money went down the drain as I purchased "things" of no value, trying to rationalize all my purchases. My search for gratification clearly was unattainable by spending money, in fact, I felt even worst. I was clearly on the wrong path and realized SOMETHING had to change.
We had recently moved into a new rental home and I called my landlords for a repair that needed to be done. I came to find out that my landlords owned a property management company and over 54 homes and counting. I was astonished at how simple and down to earth they looked and my curiosity forced me to ask them how they had done it. It was a dream of mine (and my hubby's) to some day have the ability to invest in real estate. That is when I found out that they were involved in network marketing on the side and this is what allowed them to have the time and financial freedom to invest in real estate. I had heard success stories before, but for some reason, this time it was different. These two people were on their way to building an empire while I sat at home wasting away mine and my hubby's hard earned money. They invited me to their home, showed me the plan, and I signed up right away and haven't looked back since.
My conversation with my landlords, combined with my situation created the perfect timing for me to get started. The company I joined was absolutely amazing. It actually aligned with what I needed as it teaches people how to grow personally and financially.. I dove into the material and training and began to slowly apply the principles into my life. For me, things slowly started getting better. My husband and I sat down together, made a plan, and a budget of how we were going to accomplish our goals. I felt like I was on the way to the right path, finally. I felt safe, prepared and even excited for my upcoming journey.
I WAS PUMPED. BUT I WAS STILL LOST.
I knew what I needed to do to succeed but didn't know how to do it.
This inspired me to start holding myself accountable. I needed a group, a team of supporters that would root for me and motivate me along my journey. I needed a place to vent and share my struggles and a place to hear of other ladies that were going through the same. I needed a new and healthy hobby, one that wouldn't cost me thousands of dollars.
AND THIS WAS IT.
