9 years ago on January 11th of 2008 my life changed forever! I signed up to be a distributor with ItWorks Global, decided to make a change 💚
Wow! 9 years with the same company!?! Can’t you belive it?! I’m proud to say that I’ve been a full-time work from home boss babe with ItWorks since the age of 25!
I “retired” from that 9 to 5 J.O.B. lifestyle in 2010 😎
Today, I want to celebrate by being completely transparent. By sharing a little bit of my story with you guys.. In hopes to encourage you all 💚
I did not grow up rich, I didn’t have the fancy clothes and toys or live in a big house. I was one of two children being raised by a single mother, in a small town called Smyrna in Tennessee. My mother, Kimberly, struggled to make ends meet, but did her best to make sure that her children were provided for. That meant a lot of time away from home, working two or three jobs at a time to take care of us. She did her best to spend as much time with us as she could 😊
She had no other choice and we loved her dearly for taking care of us all those years. She was the perfect example of a fighter, a survivor, the underdog.. who someway, somehow always came out on 🔝
I’ve taken after her in many ways.. I’m just as driven as she was! I wish she could see me now. She was called home to Heaven on April 9th 2007, the day after Easter Sunday. There’s not a single day that goes by where I don’t think of her, I promised to make her proud and I’m doing it. Independent and resilient. I am making my own way. I know she’s watching over me. I love you Mama ❤️
I wouldn’t call my childhood the best ever, but it made me who I am today and for that I’m thankful. “Builds character” as my uncle Gary always says…
I know what it’s like to have nothing and to think that you are nothing.
To feel like you are worthless.
I know what it’s like to be outcasted and ridiculed and bullied.
I was not popular.
I was broken.
I was the loner, dealing with anger and emotional issues, tragedy, and lots of heartbreak. Along with many other things a child should never be involved in.
I’ve made many mistakes and have paid high prices for them, im not perfect. And that’s ok..
At end of the day, I am thankful for my storms, because without them I wouldn’t have the testimony I have. I wouldn’t be the amazing person I consider myself to be 💪🏼
I won’t go into much more detail about the past but it has lead me to where I am right now and I can do nothing but thank the Lord for my many blessings. Out of all the accomplishments in my life so far, I am the most thankful for ItWorks.
I got into this business to choose my own destiny, to be the co writer of my fate along with God, to change my life for the better while changing the lives of others too. To become healthy, not only physically but emotionally and mentally.
I am so thankful to my Aunt Melody for introducing me to this crazy wrap and for believing in me even when I didn’t believe in my self. She’s a true inspiration to me and I’m so excited to be following in her foot steps, she’s the most amazing mentor and best friend I could ever ask for. I love you Aunt Melody 💚
Most people start network marketing because they want to have a second stream of income, I started because I believe that this industry is the right vehicle to take me to my dreams and beyond.
Has it been easy? No. Has it been absolutely worth it? Yes!
I’ve seen every high and low that a person can see in this industry. I’ve been at the top and I’ve been at the bottom. I’ve struggled just like all of you. I’ve had to rebuild my business and start fresh before. 3 times actually. And you know what? I’ve been JUST FINE 🙌🏼
I’ve been through all of the growing pains that ItWorks has had, including two major computer system migrations and a 2 month long wrap shortage. I stayed when my entire downline left. Three times. But did that stop me? No.
Has it been all rainbows and butterflies? No. It’s been hard work and dedication. Granted, this is the easiest work I’ve ever done, but I’ve been consistent. I’ve kept the faith and I have never given up. The industry of Network Marketing is where my heart is and I do my best to always build my business with integrity, honesty, loyalty and most of all, LOVE.
I’m not an overnight success but I am a success!
I’ve wanted to throw in the towel, but that’s not who I am. I have remained faithful and true to my self and my heart even when my entire business was crumbling right before my eyes. and I’ve come out on top each time. That’s what fighters do. I fight for my dreams and the dreams of everyone I meet!
Do you have what it takes? I KNOW you do! I BELIEVE you do! Keep going!
I’ve built my entire organization with a cold market, it’s completely doable. My warm market started coming around 7 years into it. so don’t think you guys have to know people.
You can use It Works as a tool to get to know people, like I have. I’ve met some of my best friends through this business. We support each other, work with each other. None of them I knew before I started this business. Now we are truly family 💚
I’m so blessed by the relationships I’ve built during my journey. Clients, business partners and new friends 👯
I praise Jesus for creating me to be perfectly flawed and I thank Him for being with me during my darkest moments and for carrying me through them. Because without Him, I know I wouldn’t be where I am today. I truly believe I would be lost without Him. I believe that I’ve had to go through all that I’ve been through in my life so that I can honor and glorify His name.
You don’t have to be perfect to be successful, all you need is the will to try and to let nothing stand in your way of greatness. God does not call the qualified, he qualifies the called!
I hope this story encourages you to give yourself all you got, to keep going when you want to stop and to go all the way to the top!
