Tired of Struggling in DS Companies? Behold the Magic of “Consultant of the Month!”

Okay, so it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, and I’ve missed it SO much! I’ve been “in and out” of the business circuit for about 3 years or so, give or take, and I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned WHAT to do and, most importantly, what NOT to do. Wanna know the secret to getting your sales boosted, meeting quotas, and more?

The COTM (Consultant of the Month) group.

Don’t laugh. It’s going to change the way you think about direct sales. I’m in two companies, and I can promote them both, so now, I don’t have to choose. Here’s the lowdown:

The group works on a rotation, and you make a purchase a month, and we when it’s your month to host, you get 5 guaranteed sales from your buyers! It’s a good way to meet quotas and goals. The best thing is that anyone who joins the group makes an initial purchase to start, so if you know other reps who would benefit, you can really add to your sales FAST! I’m at the $20 per month level, which keeps things very manageable since I always could use something for a gift or for myself.

Essentially, you’re getting paid from others who join under you, you’re making 5 guaranteed sales, you’re promoting, AND you’re supporting other reps with one purchase a month. The change can be simple. You can buy your makeup from a fellow rep instead of going to a drugstore, you can buy a present for a teacher, friend, or family member, or just something you need for yourself! I started at $20 a month because I always spend this much per month on stuff I need, anyhow!

I do hope you consider joining a group, namely my group, which has almost 4,000 members to date! If you’re interested in learning more, comment below!

Much Love,

Spring Cleaning 101: Life on a Budget

OKAY, so it’s been a little while since my last post, and let me say that I’ve missed each and every one of you dearly. My readership is highly valued. Don’t you forget it! 😉

I’ve finally completed my M.A. graduation requirements. It’s been a long road, but I’m ready to click my heels and “pow” have it over! ❤

AND things in my life have straightened themselves out. I’m 1000% jazzed about my line of work, and my job search is OVER! I’m still in the business world, but my attention has turned to shopping rewards programs and couponing. No more MLM, direct sell, or anything like that (happy sigh). I’ve joined an INCREDIBLE network for shopping rewards, and I’ve uncovered a GOLD mine of money-saving ideas here lately, namely a newfound obsession with drugstore bargains. I’m serious.

Today, I scooped up some incredible liquid makeup (RIMMEL), lipstick, nail polish, and shampoo for under $8. Yep, I’m pretty proud of that. *WOOT* I’m having the time of my life uncovering ways to stretch our funds and S-A-V-E. It’s a win/win since more $$ means fewer hours at work. If I can offer you ANY advice– be it jobs, contract work, or more insight into what I do as a marketing mommy, I’m always here to help — and I DO mean help. I don’t pitch, scam, or harass, so be prepared to be genuinely HELPED.

Now, off for some sweet slumber next to my little miracle. ❤

Learning from My Mistakes!

I’ve been a PATHETIC excuse for a business owner since losing Emerald Coach status in August, but that’s about to change. I’m going to COMPLETELY dive in and treat this as a real, true-blue business. Reading Mindy Wender’s story makes me even more inspired that I can do Beachbody FULL TIME from home, get out of debt. and help others, most importantly. 

I finally found that opportunity last June. No scam, no gimmicks, and honestly, if you roll up those sleeves and burn some elbow grease, you CAN earn a full time income. That’s my goal since I need a job that allows me the flexibility to be the best mom I can be. I LOVE teaching and writing, but doing it full time is very stressful. If you’re interested, I’d love to work with you, too, and we can make this dream a reality. We can do this together, but I need you to dive in with me

live fearlessly

get healthy

help others

and don’t hold back! 

We got this, and we’re going to rock ’14!

Fall is Here! Quick Update and Recipe…

Hello, my dear friends! Happy, healthy fall! 😀 I’m back to blogging and teaching, and it feels great. I’m taking it one step at a time and enjoying my hours spent at work. It’s late, baby is safely in her crib, and I have good time to think. Things have been getting better and better diet-wise for me, and I’ve been able to eliminate all meat except seafood for over a week. I love it! I feel MUCH lighter and generally better all over. It’s funny, but I think that all of the antibiotics found in meat were really messing up my hormones! I’m taking it easy with plenty of veggies, fruit, and soy-based foods. Honestly, I don’t even miss it; this new way of eating feels SO much more “me.”

Halloween is upon us, so I made some treats for my snacks for fun! Since I’ve never done a food blog post before and I’m VERY sleepy, I’m keeping it simple with a popular childhood recipe!

Ants on a Log:

This is one of my favorites, especially since it only requires three ingredients!

Image

Gather organic celery, raisins, and coconut peanut butter. Why organic celery? Celery has a very thin, almost non-existent, skin, which soaks up pesticides very easily. Therefore, it is a good idea to buy organic celery, which contains none of these harmful substances.

Image

Wash celery and chop off both tops and ends.

Spread a generous amount of peanut butter on each stalk, and top with your raisin “ants!” This is a great way to get kids in the kitchen! I love that there’s so much protein in this snack, and it helps to satisfy the junk food craving since it is very crunchy! Drizzle a little bit of honey over the finished product if you wish for even more flavor.

I’ll try to have more recipes up tomorrow. I am absolutely BEYOND sleepy and am going to finish sipping my tea and relaxing after a ballet workout. It is such a joy to have your readership, and I appreciate your patience as I resume my blogging! Until next time.

I’m back and READY to ROLL!

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged! Goodness, this “new baby” stuff has caused me to stop, take a breath, and let myself enjoy some MUCH needed time off. In addition to taking care of my precious new baby, I’ve also been lased-focused on my Beachbody business as well as working to earn my status as a professional writer with my company. It’s so awesome to be back, and I am so grateful for your readership! In the past few months, I’ve learned a lot about myself–and I am sure of where my life is going even though it was a direction that was completely unexpected! I never in a MILLION years thought that I would be pursuing a career as a writer and fitness coach, but everything that I’ve been through has led me to this, and I am embracing it without question.

 

Now, for an update on the health end.

I’ve been experimenting with different diets and nutrients, and yesterday, I dove in and decided to embrace a vegetarian lifestyle in order to improve my health and help to control my hormone issues. I’m even eliminating as much dairy as possible. The cravings have been UNBEARABLE, but I’m hanging in there and looking forward to a nice, delicious vegetable sub for lunch. 😉 If anyone wants to “go vegetarian” or “go vegan” with me, I’ll plug you into a facebook fitness challenge, and we’ll do it together!

 

In other news, I have a TON of exciting health information to share that I’ve been working on, and I’m going to try and blog here at least bi-weekly to update you on my vegan process and any health benefits that I’m experiencing. So far, I’m really sluggish and a bit foggy from the detox, but I think it’s all a part of the “healing crisis.” A healing crisis occurs when you’re body detoxes from unhealthy habits in order to “pave the way” for better health. I’ve done a lot of research on this, and it seems that the “healing crisis” is causing some of this general “BLAH” feeling! It also frightens me that I’ve been consuming that many toxins when I thought my diet was SIGNIFICANTLY improving! I’m really enjoying this “kinder” way of eating. Image

 

Also, guys, I’m hosting an event for those who want to become a Beachbody coach. I started five months ago, and even if I never sold another product or signed on another coach, the accountability has been CRUCIAL for my “health makeover.” I know that I would have never made it this far had I not been so encouraged and help accountable to my team and customers!

That’s all for now. Message me at cafegirl777@gmail.com if you have any comments, questions, or any topics that you would like to see addressed in future blogs. Until next time, stay active, fit, and ROCK it!
