Four years ago, I was in a place that many people find themselves – I was an unemployed college graduate. After months of filling out applications, I realized a sad truth – my college degrees were pretty much the equivalent of a high school diploma. To get a good job in my field, I would have to get my master’s. Well, after being in school for two decades, I was kind of tired of school, so I decided to take a break for a year and just work. So that’s why I did. I obtained a job as a live-in nanny. I loved it. The kids. The income. The benefits. I even started grad school (online). All was well.
Then life happened. I fell in love. Got engaged. Got pregnant. I decided to move halfway across the country when I was about 6 months pregnant to be closer to my family. Which meant leaving my cushy $2000/month job. Suddenly I was totally dependent on my then-fiancé He paid all of the bills. And my car note. Other women may have kicked back and enjoyed it. I HATED it. I loved staying home with my son. I hated not contributing. I especially hated that he was having to pay MY car note. Something had to change.
That’s when I looked into working from home. I figured it was the best of both worlds. I got to be at home with my son and still contribute to the household. My first attempt at this type of thing had actually been when I was 18 – selling beauty products. Anyone who knows me wouldn’t be surprised to learn that this attempt was an utter failure. Great company, great products- not for me. I had no passion for it. So this time I changed my tact. I found out about a company that was all about empowering women – something I could be passionate about. And it was actually a lot of fun. I got to meet a lot of great women and even made friends. And I made enough money to ease my conscience at home. I wasn’t making a great deal. But it was enough to pay my car note and help out a bit with other bills. Things were ok for a while.
Then I suddenly became a single mom and it was nowhere near enough. I was forced to do the unthinkable – get a “real” job. I HATED IT. With a passion. I am not cut out for that life anymore. I am a work at home mom at heart. I hate the idea of leaving my son for 8 to 10 hours a day and paying someone else to raise him in my stead. I wanted to be at home with him. So I was constantly on the lookout for opportunities that would allow me to do that. I tried a couple of different network marketing companies with varying degrees of success. But I still hadn’t found the perfect fit.
Several months ago a friend joined a company called It Works! Global. I had never heard of the company or the their top-selling product – the “skinny wrap”. To be honest, I was skeptical. I didn’t think the wraps actually worked. And if they did, it was probably just water weight that people lost, and (of course) that would come right back. I was not a believer. But I did keep my eyes peeled. I saw her posts. Her personal transformation. And that made it more real to me. This wasn’t a nameless faceless person. This was someone I know and trust.
I decided to try it for myself. Needless to say, I became a believer. My results were amazing! I had been losing a substantial amount of weight this year, but for some reason my belly was holding on to the fat like I hold on to my neighbor on roller coasters- as though I would die if I didn’t. But when I tried the wrap, I saw that it didn’t have to stay that way. I could have the body I wanted again. I immediately saw the potential that was staring me in the face. To help other moms tackle those body issues that plague us after giving birth. You know the ones I’m talking about. Unwanted jiggly spots. That annoying, ever present baby pooch. Stretch marks. Here was a product that could help moms and women everywhere reclaim something that many of us had deemed lost forever – our prebaby bodies. And, of course, I saw an opportunity for me to be able to stay at home just by helping others to transform their bodies and their lives. I would have been crazy to pass up this opportunity.
I can honestly say that this was a great decision. Once people heard about my great results, my inbox was flooded with requests for more information. Before I had even gotten the chance to absorb the fact that I had just spent my precious money to join this company, I was building my team. Before my kit had even arrived in the mail, I had already presold the wraps that it contained. By the end of my first week I had started getting online customers. This was the first time that I ever made money straight out of the gate – and I love it! I think that I have finally found the perfect opportunity for me. A company that I am passionate about, that provides an amazing (and affordable) line of products, that changes lives – including mine. I am genuinely excited to see where this journey takes me and my little family.
