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,


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!

In Honor of My Dad on Veteran’s Day: A Tribute of Love Written by My Mom

My Mom wrote this heartfelt letter to Dad in honor of Veteran’s Day. We are so grateful for his (and every soldier’s) service to our country. We love you so much, Dad, and deeply appreciate what you have done (and continue to do) as you defend our freedom.



Veteran’s Day—Monday, Nov. 11, 2013– (originally Armistice Day)–ultimately expanded to include the recognition and celebration of all military veterans. It is not to be confused with Memorial Day, which is the set aside to remember those individuals who died while serving their country.

On this Veteran’s Day, our family would like to express sincere gratitude to all those men and women (past or present) for their military service.  We expressly remember and honor the heroism and sacrifice of so many brave Americans who were either killed or wounded while in the service of our country.

Today, our family reflects on the overall strength and dedication of so many individuals who presently serve or who have served, at some point, in our armed forces.  A few of our family members who immediately come to mind include: my dad (USN, 1946-1948–post World War II and USAF, 1949-1953-incl. Korean War, Pacific); my father-in-law (USN, 1944—1945-World War II-combat, Pacific); great-uncle (US Army, World War II-incl. Normandy Invasion, 1944); my brother (USAF, 1972-1976); finally, my husband (USN, 1972-1975-Pacific, and also, Army National Guard-TX-1987-present).

Without undermining the service or sacrifice of other brave Americans, our family would like to extend our thanks to SFC Lloyd E. Tilbury (husband, father, father-in-law, and grandfather) for his many years of service to his country. He will retire, Lord willing, in a few short months (2014) after a combined total of thirty-one years of military service. Those of us who know him so well are reminded of his personal humility; he has never sought any special recognition for himself.  However, we would like to publicly acknowledge our appreciation to him for his many accomplishments and sacrifices.


Tribute/Letter to SFC Lloyd E. Tilbury


Dear Lloyd, Dad, and Granddad,

We want to congratulate you on your upcoming retirement (2014) after completing thirty-one combined years of service. Enduring so many (military) separations over the years has not been particularly easy. Whether it was monthly drills or annual camps (often involving weeks of overseas travel), we always greatly missed you. Some of us vividly remember the many days you spent away from us during the Red River flooding in Texas in 1991. We further recall those forty-five days that you and your unit assisted the victims of Hurricane Ike (2008) in East Texas. Yet we were never as proud as when you served that entire year (2005-2006) in Iraq and Kuwait on the Operation Iraqi Freedom mission. Although not directly involved in combat, you, along with your fellow troops, provided much needed expertise within the support and maintenance units.  We also knew that your compound had been mortared by the Iraqis; you were subsequently transferred to a “safer” location within Iraq. However, despite your final move to Kuwait, we were keenly aware of the potential dangers you faced in that part of the world. Furthermore, it must have been really tough for a fifty-one year-old man to live in desert tents for months at a time with little or no privacy. Enduring daytime temperatures that often soared to over 130 degrees must have been extremely difficult for you.

Yet despite such hardships, God provided for all of us, and we are eternally grateful to Him for His blessings. We continue to pray earnestly for the peace and safety of all those brave men and women, who faithfully carry out their duties every day. All branches of the military (full-time Armed Services, the Reserves, and the National Guard) operate together, helping to maintain our freedom and providing assistance for all Americans. So, on this Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2013, we honor all veterans, including you, SFC Lloyd E. Tilbury. We thank you for your service, and we love you dearly.

Love always,

Jeannie, Kristen, Kaitlin, Billy, and Faith
