About - My Past
Being an Assistant Principal was my goal. Once I achieved it I realised it wasn’t what I wanted for my family. Yes the pay was great but I wasn’t happy. I wanted to be at home raising our children. This became my ‘why’. This is why I do what I do today and why I have had success. If your ‘why’ is strong enough to get you into business and through the rollercoaster ride it will inevitably throw you on, then it will lift and carry you to greater heights too.
I have been in the direct sales/network marketing industry for 6 years. From the outset I knew that I wanted a big business. This would allow me to quit my job and be a stay at home mum for my young children. I have worked hard to be where I am today and have achieved things I never thought were in my reach. Within 4 months of joining a company I had achieved a free, all expenses paid, 5 star trip to Paris. Magical is an understatement!! Persistence, consistency, and being passionate about my ‘why’ has given me longevity in the business. I continue along this journey day in and day out, having fun, changing other people’s lives, and fulfilling my dream of being a full time mum to my children.
In the past 6 years in business I have had my share of ups and downs, learnt from others, and learnt so much about myself. I was a person that when the going got tough I would second guess myself and resided to being a failure. My mentor was a great coach and she helped me shift my mindset, projecting positive thoughts into my future instead of the negativity that consumed me. She taught me to talk, think and act positively, and in turn this allowed me to move forward and see the good in any situation. She taught me to celebrate my successes, small or big. I am a teachable person, willing to listen, and learn from others and take on board what has worked.
I have been able to help others along this journey too, and I quickly realised that I love helping others achieve. It makes me happy to see others succeed. Whether it is monetary, self-confidence, or extra pocket money, the business has helped them work towards achieving their goals and I have been there to train, support and celebrate their successes.
Within 12 months of my Paris trip, I achieved another free, all expenses paid, 5 star trip, this time to Canada. Let me tell you, I never aimed for these trips, it simply happened because I work my business consistently and have lots of fun doing so.
When people see you having fun when you ‘work’ they want a piece of the action too. It’s infectious!! Canada was such an amazing trip, full of adventure, fine dining and a defining moment. I don’t do heights, water, or being away from my family. However I don’t know what came over me……I left my family, including my sick mother to travel to Canada, I ziplined at Grousse Mountain, white-water rafted in a glacial lake, and took the chair lifts to the peak of Whistler on my own and trekked around the mountain. I don’t do adventure!!! I took out the bravery award!!
It was here, at the peak of Whistler where I had that moment. In the serenity, above the clouds, on my own I stopped and absorbed the natural beauty before me. I closed my eyes and took some deep breaths. All I could hear was my breathing. My thoughts became clear and overwhelmed me. I opened my eyes and cried. It was a moment where I was at peace with everything going on in my life and the start of a new journey of happiness, gratitude and strength.
I have achieved free trips, countless awards and other incentives with the companies I have been involved with. I currently hold the highest individual party sales in the company’s history. I am a record breaker!! If you had said that to me almost 3 years ago I would have laughed……. I guess when you do what you love and love what you do, these achievements come knocking.
The direct sales/network marketing industry is an industry that is booming. More and more people want to live their life on their own terms. I wasn’t afraid to take a chance and it has paid off. I have now resigned from work and do what I love. Being with my children gives me the greatest joy, and since they still want me around I’m going to run with that!! Earn an amazing income whilst I do school drop off and pick up, shop, eat, sleep and holiday!!
Speaking of holidays….. 2 years ago we spent 2 months in Europe as a family. The experience our family had was priceless. Being together, enjoying the beach, good food and each other’s company. Who can leave their job and continue to be paid?
