I had one kindergartner and 2 babies in diapers when I joined network marketing. I had no idea what I was doing, but just by sharing the results I was experiencing from a health system with family and friends, I started getting checks in the mail. My first check of $17 seemed like a million dollars! Network marketing allowed me to continue to be a stay-at-home mom even as my children grew up. It eventually enhanced our finances so much that we were able to travel, give to charity, buy rental properties, upgrade our home, and allow my husband to work less. Being home with my kids, attending all their school activities and games, and taking care of them when they were sick is the best gift this profession can give a parent.

My kids grew up in an entrepreneurial environment where they learned they have options outside of the job market and that they do not have to settle for mediocrity. They developed people skills right along with me, such as personality styles and how to FORM others, which helps them in school (with teachers) and sports. They have attended events with me where they learn about our profession and personal growth, which will crossover into whatever career they choose. Becoming a better mom because of network marketing creates better kids for our future!

When I was growing up, I wanted to be a teacher or a lawyer so I could help others. Once in college, I realized neither one of those would be possible for me because I would have to take public speaking and communication classes, which scared me to death.

Shortly after I joined network marketing, I was at a large opportunity event of over 400 people. One of the top income earners had heard about my initial success and pulled me aside during the break to congratulate me. When the program resumed, she suddenly called me out of the audience to share my story. Knees shaking and heart pounding, I did it—and survived! What once was a huge fear turned into a most powerful tool to teach others in one-on-one meetings, on conference calls, and from stage. Being a good teacher comes down to sharing our skills, gifts, wisdom, and stories so they may help others as well. I am grateful my business provided me with a way to do exactly what was in my heart as a child.

Little did I know when I started network marketing that I would embark on my own personal and spiritual development journey. To become the best network marketing professional you can be, you have to work hard on the practical aspects of our business, but I would argue that you have to work harder on yourself.

I have faced great fears, overcome huge challenges, refined character traits and weaknesses, and it all deepened my relationship with God because I knew I could not do this on my own. It has helped me be more compassionate to others I see struggling with things I struggled with. It gave me a vehicle to serve and help others in a way I could have never imagined.
