It Works Global is providing so much opportunity for anyone that wants it. I’ve been watching some videos from some of my sidelines and they inspired me to make one too. I think my story is pretty cool and I am excited to share it with you. I am proud of the fact that it took me longer than many to get to where I am today. I know some of you might be thinking that might be strange, but it is very true. I am proud of my story because it is my story and does not belong to anyone else.
I built my business the best way I knew how. It was my first direct sales? company and the truth is that it took me a while to understand the ropes and what I needed to do. I enrolled with It Works in March of 2009 and I promoted to Diamond in October of 2011. That is a long time, but it was my time. I needed that to learn my business.
As of today I am on pace to promote to Ambassador Diamond in March of 2014 which will be my 5 year anniversary. 🙂
I don’t compare my story to other leaders that did it in a year or two. That is great for them. I love hearing their stories. Everyone has their own journey to go through including you!
Some of you reading this are already distributors and this post is written for you. Don’t quit! Some of you might be in this a week, a month, a year. Don’t quit! If you are feeling scared, nervous discouraged. It’s ok. I felt that and still feel it sometimes. Get through it! Step up to the plate and learn how to run your business. Even if it takes you 5 years.
I have had the privilege to experience momentum twice in my life. The first time was working for Starbucks when they only had 15 stores in Southern California and we grew to 2000 stores in 5 years. We had our growing pains for sure, but every one was worth it. I loved that job! I worked endlessly for my team and customers. I worked that job for 7 years. When I left my salary was right around $65,000 a year. After working there for 7 years and many times for 12 hour days. I hit a cap. I didn’t graduate from college and every promotion I went for I did not get.
My second round in momentum is with It Works Global. As I head in to my 5th year, there is no cap. I am so glad I did not quit. I could have. In the beginning I wasn’t really making a lot of money and when I did I reinvested it all back in to my business. I worked many hours with a small check to show for it. Quitting would have been easy. Easy is not always better.
Take the next 10 minutes and watch this video I made for you. If you are on the verge of quitting, I am talking to you right now. 🙂
