Shortest Month of the Year, Biggest Growth!

The shortest month of the year is always crazy for all of my network marketing babes! We have deadlines to hit, lives to change, and promotions that we all run after.

A lot my followers always ask me what my day to day looks like, and I truly want to give you some insight on life and the way that we build up the amazing businesses that we are apart of!

So… if you truly want to know what my day is like- keep on reading!

I don’t have an alarm clock unless I absolutely have to get up! But, I usually wake up around 8:30 in the morning, and start my day off with a team zoom conference. We plan posts, Instagram stories, chat with ladies from the night before, and grow our networks. One of my favorite things to do is start my day with my team. It fills my cup and seeing the excitement from everyone in the beginning of the day is exactly what I need! Striating your day on your own terms and time is life changing. When I left my marketing firm in November I was the queen of setting alarms, and hitting snooze. I now wake up inspired and excited- ask my roommate she will tell you I can be too much energy in the morning! 

I journal every single morning with my Dream Life Daily Journal. If ya’ll don’t have a copy of this, you NEED ONE! No matter what your profession is. It is the best feeling to see you life goals, daily goals, and prayers written down. It takes 20 minutes out of your day, I sip my coffee and take a breath. (And yes I am 100% drinking my keto coffee topped with whipped cream as per usual!) My cats distract me, my house can be little too clean, and I work from my bed, desk, or couch. The Office is almost always on repeat in the background.

Throughout the day I am marketing on my insta, hopping onto calls, chatting and training with my team, or heading off to work with some of my local teammates! I can always pick up my business, or take a break! The day of the week doesn’t matter anymore, if I want to adventure, go skiing, shop, head to the gym, I can work and do both! I used to constantly be waiting for the weekend. Now, I always forget what day of the week it is!

Sometimes, I’m in my pjs all day, working on 6 hours of sleep, on my 4th cup of coffee, and running out of dry shampoo, but I wouldn’t change that for the world.

I work my business every single day, but on MY terms and no one else’s. The deadlines that I miss are on me, the goals I hit are on me! Can you imagine your day like that?

After dinner, I always check in with everyone! Most of my clients and teammates are free in the evening. 90% of them work this business while in school, or with another job, or BOTH!

I know it seems like this business is simple, and easy! Well, that’s because it IS! But, it’s still a business. You have to show up for your business. Joining a company then doing nothing will get you nowhere! Let me put it this way, if you were given a pizza restaurant, a secret recipe to success, all the tools you need to be successful, but you never show up and hire anyone to help… what do you think will happen? Your business will never be successful!

Our team is experiencing massive growth because we have people showing up every day. Women building other women up, tools to help us be the best we can be, and an amazing company behind us.

Before I go to bed, I am always reading, watching self development, or listening to podcasts of people who are more successful than me.

Can you see this being your day? Even if you start by adding it to your schedule that you have now? We all start at square one, hoping and praying this business will work.

Knowing that in 28 days I have changed hundreds of lives fuels me. The months may fly by, but every day I am doing work that makes me feel so fulfilled. So… are you ready yet???

It’s Okay to be Running Your Own Race

One of the most popular questions people ask me all the time, is- “How are you so successful at a young age?” First, thank you so much to all the people who see my life as a success. Second, I believe that my success in life is just get started, that many more adventures and business opportunities are coming.

So the short answer, I dream every single day. I never want to settle. When I am not reaching my goals, I push myself harder daily in order to get there. But most importantly, I am aware that I am running my own race. So many people want to be exactly like the people they look up to. It’s great to have mentors and people you strive to be, but girl, you are your own person! Comparison will kill your dreams.

Don’t compare yourself to someone in their winning season, because you may have not seen them in their losing season.

Last year, I completely lost sight of who I was for a long time. My business was failing because of it, my life was falling apart, and the only thing that was doing well was my social life. I would wake up some mornings and be so mentally and physically exhausted I wouldn’t even make it out the door. I told myself that there had to be a breaking point, that things would get better. What’s funny? Is not too many people knew that I had cried myself to sleep, skipped dinner but not drinks. As a college grad, single woman, and adult on my own I was struggling… hard.

That was my losing season.

I kept running, I pushed myself to do better. When I started to do better for myself, eat healthy, go to bed before 2am, and force myself to work on my dreams, little by little I was back in my race.

Was it hard to see some of my friends get new jobs, promote, move out of my home state, and get engaged, yes! But imagine if I gave up because of what other people were up to? You can be silent with your dreams and work hard until you reach them, it doesn’t have to be all over your social media. The important part, is not stopping. If you think that an opportunity is worth it, through the tough times and the easy, you will keep up with it.

Do I think that I am in a winning season? Right now, yes. I wake up every single day with a smile on my face doing something I love, with so many people who support me. To the people that don’t, that’s okay. Because inside and out I am happy.

This is YOUR life, your race, and you are the only one running it. So get up every single day and try to make yourself proud! I’ll be cheering you on.

Why I chose It Works

On your instagram profiles you see it all the time- women making an extra income from their phone, sometimes an amount so big- that it’s hard to wrap your mind around it. How can you make so much money from posting on social media? How is it possible that this girls’ life is such an adventure?

I had these questions too! Especially before I joined. So many of you who read my blog, also follow me on my Insta, and you can see my highlight reel daily with all of the things that I’ve been up to. But it didn’t start that way, and I want you to know that! Even right now as I type this blog my hair is up in a messy bun, I have no makeup on, and I’m in a cozy sweatshirt.

I was just like you. I saw people absolutely killing their businesses and making a full time income while also being in college, raising their kids, and having the freedom of time. But I was nervous to ask HOW, I was scared that it wouldn’t work for me. My life was average, I didn’t know a ton of people, my insta had 350 followers and I can promise you I couldn’t take a cute selfie to save my life.

In the summer of 2015 I finally decided that my life needed a change. I took the leap to join It Works without truly understanding all of the things that this company would give me. I was a junior in college, on the executive board of ADPi, working, going to school, and I had an internship. Did I feel ready to start this?? NO! Was I scared? YES! But, I thought to myself the best things that have ever happened in my life are on the other side of fear.

Over the next few months, I jumped into learning about the business, the compensation plan, and how to take a good selfie! (Pro tip: set your phone up in the windowsill and set a timer! It’s the best lighting). Some of you saw me start that journey, some of you see where I am today! I started to add our products into my daily life, and found a regime that helped me lose 14lbs!

My gosh you guys, the list of just the start of my journey can go on and on!

On top of making a full time income while still in college, I also started to meet some of the most down to earth women, who are inside and out amazing people. My closest friends are now because of this business, and I have friends all over the country. We build each other up and we are supportive of our dreams.IMG_6099.jpeg

I get it, you need to think about it. It’s not the right time, you’re too busy. From al small town. Wouldn’t be able to do this like me. Oh wait… actually, I don’t get it anymore. I had all of those fears an excuses to not start. Some of my top leaders did too. But I now know for a fact, anyone that wants this opportunity can take this and run full force to change their life.

I think so many women need to push the excuses, fears, and he said she said about what we do aside, and TRY IT for themselves. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!

I chose It Works because I wanted an extra $300 a month in college. I will continue to choose this company because of the lives I get to change, and the freedom I am able to have on this amazing adventure.

When will you say enough is enough, and finally join me?!
