Many of you have read my story and I won’t lie, although I have been somewhat transparent with the journey that lead me here, there’s no way I could tell every thing that my family and I experienced when I was literally going for broke in the real estate market.
As a former real estate agent in the booming Southwest Florida market, I was no stranger to hard-work, determination and success. However, when the real estate market plummeted in 2009, my business suffered tremendously. Like so many people, my husband Charlie and I lost everything we had worked for over the course of 8 years. I found myself in an industry I no longer believed in. I realized I wasn’t going to be able to reach my long term goals and dreams if I didn’t re-evaluate my career.
But that was then, and this is now. On the journey to now, I learned so much about myself, what I want from life and how much I need a life and business that are working together – not against each other. That is the main reason I was willing to consider a different way of running a business. By being open to a business that can work with my life, my family and my need for creative expression, I listened to the It Works Business Opportunity.
What I Was Looking For
I was looking for something that allowed me the same flexibility I had with real estate and an opportunity to earn a stable and substantial income. I couldn’t stomach the thought of being “tethered to a desk’ and having someone else own MY time. It Works was introduced to me by a close friend and I decided to learn more about the company. And like many of us who are now Wrapreneurs, I quickly realized this business is just what I needed. I’m so grateful for a friend who was willing to tell me how this business works and take time to show me how I could not only make way more money than I was in real estate, but also how I could actually enjoy my life along the way!
My First It Works Products
As excited as I was about the results people were experiencing from the wraps, I was more interested in the natural health products. So I started with both “Greens” and “Vital.” I felt such a difference in my health and energy level within the first 2 weeks, I was sold! Knowing the products worked for me, I continued to learn more about the company, its values and how they support every single person who comes into the business. And of course I was happy that the corporate office was right in my own backyard in Bradenton, Florida.
Success In Business & Life: A Real Business That I Love Doing
With It Works, I can truly say I am free to be me – the me that loves working with other people to encourage them and help them achieve their dreams – the me that believes business should be a part of your life and not 2 separate worlds – the me that gets to control my paycheck and work totally independently from the “market” or “economy.”
Don’t get me wrong – this business is hard work! If anyone tries to tell you differently, I would question if they have a business. But what I love is the simple system we have for anyone who is willing to introduce people to these amazing products to make money and have fun at the same time. I love having a flagship best selling product (The Ultimate Applicator Body Wrap) that offers results in 45 minutes.
I also was excited when I realize the only way people can purchase it they have to buy it from an Independent Distributor (Me) – unlike, jewelry, candles, purses, and makeup, where people can go to their local department store. Our products are exclusive to our brand and available only through an It Works distributor. This means I get the awesome opportunity to talk to people all day about something I love and get paid to do it. Some of my favorite It Works natural health and wellness products are our facial applicators, Greens, Confianza, and our Lip and Eye Cream. Have you tried any of them? What are some of your favorites?
What do you think? Could you be our next top Wrapreneur?
As much as I love the products, I love that this really is my business. One of the most important things to me about working with It Works is the company’s commitment to helping people get out of debt. You may have seen our slogan: “Debt Free Is The New Sexy.” The CEO of It Works, Mark Pentecost, is so committed to helping families live debt free that our company does not reward you with fancy cars or material things for your accomplishments. You know what we give you for introducing people to this business? CASH! You can’t pay off your car or mortgage with another car. You can’t pay down your credit card with a car. No, I’m pretty sure the only way to get out of debt is to pay it off with C-A-S-H. Am I right?
You may not have been close to the bottom like I was several years ago, but I hope you’re like me in that you recognize there is more than one way to own a business and life you love. Whether you’re looking to make money part time or build up your business so it becomes your full time career, we’re here to help you learn more about this opportunity and find out if it’s right for you.
