“Be bold enough to design your life” -bossbabe
Trust me when I say – I had never in my life wanted to sell something.
Have you ever had that gut feeling though.. that you needed to do something? That’s how this all began. A gut feeling… a strong one.
It was the first week of March – a huge transitional time in my life. I had just left my good job as a morning News Anchor. I had moved back to West Virginia, where I had lived for my first job and where my boyfriend was still (3 years of long distance is HARD). I had literally no idea what was ahead for me, Gregg and our almost 2 year old son Hudson, but I knew we were together and that’s all that mattered. I also knew that I needed a break from news. I was run down and mentally/physically drained. I felt like I couldn’t enjoy my life. I couldn’t enjoy being a mom. I was missing so much. I was alone. I knew this wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life. There had to be more. Have you been there before? I know so many have. I had worked so hard for years to get where I was in my career. Was it scary to leave my job? Yes. I was terrified.
But I know now that everything happened the way it did for a reason.
The first time I tried the product, was the weekend I moved back to West Virginia. It was my little “fun gift” to myself after a stressful move. The second I put it on my lips, I was amazed. Everything was true! It lived up to the hype! I was immediately obsessed. Then that feeling sunk in. I could sell this – I thought to myself. What else am I doing right now? – I asked myself. That night I laid awake in bed thinking about it. I felt this nudge. I knew that now was the time if I wanted to do it. I had heard about the momentum phase with the company. I knew the window wouldn’t be open forever. I knew I had to take the jump. This felt bigger than just signing up to sell makeup.
Boy did it turn out to be bigger.
Since March, I’ve grown a team of almost 200 amazing women who inspire me every day. I’ve earned a company-paid car, a trip for 2 to costa rica, numerous rank advancements and acknowledgements. I’m well on my way to earning a trip for my family to Disney World! I have the opportunity to stay home with Hudson and not go back to work if I don’t want to… do you know how freeing that is?
Yes I’m selling makeup (and lots of it) but it’s SO much more. My outlook on life changed over the last 5 months. I realized that I can dream bigger. That I can accomplish so much more than I ever thought before. I believe in this business and it’s ability to give people the freedom to create the lives they want to live. I used to think that I had to choose – make money, or be with my family. I think a lot of women are in the same boat that I was in and they don’t realize that you can have both. I far surpassed my salary as a news anchor working from home. And guess what? I’m no longer missing bath time every day. I’m not missing my little boy waking up every morning. I’m not missing getting him dressed. I’m not crying on the way to work in the mornings. I’m not nearly falling asleep on the way home. I’m not missing every holiday and family gathering. I’m getting to enjoy my son and my family.
I’m so happy that I took the leap, because it changed my life.
