“This business is not about selling a product. Wealth, freedom, and true fulfillment come as soon as you discover your dream and choose to develop yourself. You then must help others discover their dream, and you must believe in them and develop them until they believe in themselves.”
Everything Happens for a Reason!
In 2009, I started my nutrition and performance consulting business which allowed me to share my personal experiences and knowledge with individuals around the country. My passion for wellness and burning desire to help people were key ingredients; it helped me grow my business quickly and have the opportunity to work with NBA, NFL, Olympic, and CrossFit athletes around the country. I also spent a large portion of my time with “sick” people who were having unexplained health issues, inflammation, and auto-immune related issues.
I loved my work and truly believed I had finally found my purpose in life! However, my entrepreneurial side started to become frustrated with the fact that there was only one of me: there was so little time to make my business scalable and grow.
The Best of Both Worlds
Ironically, all the struggles that led me to temporarily throw in the towel are what shaped me and led me to the vehicle that would ultimately change my life. It is a vehicle that allows me to use my passion for helping others, promoting wellness, creating wealth, personal development, and teaching. It is called Network Marketing. Unfortunately, it is an industry with a clouded past and its unconventional approach has been known to provoke fear in some people who are unaware of the facts. The most fearful and misinformed even call the business model a “scam” or a “pyramid scheme.”
At the end of 2010, I received a phone call from Sean Croxton. He introduced me to a company called LifeVantage and showed me a product and business opportunity that changed both of our lives forever. This was my absolute first taste of Network Marketing. I was an amateur and didn’t know what I was doing. I knew I loved the product and found something that brought excitement and purpose to my life.
After messing around for six months, testing the water, and throwing sporadic effort at it, I decided I wanted to dive in and learn how to be a professional Network Marketer. I started following LifeVantage’s system. I lined up three-way conference calls on a daily basis, and I made time to learn something new every single day. Before I knew it I was presenting live “opportunity meetings” and training my team, and soon, my side-business was producing real income – the type of income most people would love to make from their real job!
