Hello fit family!
I hope you are having a wonderful week. I have been meaning to address this for awhile.
Having been in the fitness industry for 10 years now, you can imagine I have been approached by hundreds (maybe thousands) of people in network marketing.
If you're in the fitness industry, I highly recommend reading through this. Sponsored athletes are a dime a dozen. Being paid a small stipend and in protein powder is not a smart career move long term (for you). There is always someone younger who will work for free. Even if they are paying you now, that time is limited. Right now you may have an affiliate code and make a small percentage off of sales you direct to their site, but that's nothing compared to the organization you can build for your family with network marketing long after you are finished "modeling and competing." Just sayin.'
There will always be someone younger and prettier. I have seen the fitness industry chew people up and spit them out for the "next big thing." Start your own thing. Build your own EMPIRE. Don't wait. I wish I would have known this years ago. Looks are fleeting and we all age. When you build a business based on your looks, you're never going to feel like you're "enough." As a friend of mine once said, "there aren't many people lined up to see a 40 or 50 year old in a swimsuit."
I encourage you to build a vehicle that will pay you while you sleep. It will not only give your family freedom, but it will empower SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE to do the same.
What I love most about the profession is that you don't need to leave your job to do it. You can build it over time in the pockets of your day. At networking events, mommy/kiddo play dates, online through attraction marketing (not product pushing), while traveling, at soccer practice, at the gym, you name it! It can be extra income to pay for your groceries, car note, mortgage or your full time income - YOU DECIDE!
If you're interested in the company I have partnered with after extensive research, please fill out the contact form here so we can chat about your goals for your future.
A brief background as to why I hated network marketing and said NO for years:
When I first got into fitness, I felt like a target was on my back. I had a decent audience and people I had never even had a single conversation with were emailing me on social media with their "pitch" as to why I should join their company. However, those same people were already done with that product or company six months later, so I never took them seriously. It sounds like a "get rich quick" thing and those things just don't happen. Any business worth something takes time to build.
Also, I have to admit, I would see certain friends on Facebook start a multi-level marketing venture and I thought to myself, "Ugh! They fell for it." Then all of their posts would be product pushing and they made that product/company their entire personal brand. It was so annoying.
Okay, rant over. But now you get the picture of how I viewed network marketing and vowed I would never get caught up in that stuff.
I never knew anyone who worked network marketing as a profession or career. In fact, the first time I talked to my friend Angelike on the phone, I didn't even know it was her career because she wasn't pushing products. She was building a brand and using attraction marketing. She was doing it right. She wasn't annoying people with her posts "direct message me for details."
I soon learned that she and her husband left a six figure "comfortable" career in corporate America to build a life of choice with Isagenix. My ears perked up.
For someone has a BIG GOAL to be completely debt free (including the mortgage) in the next few years, this opportunity is a no-brainer.
You eat your overhead to run a business. Literally.
Short & Sweet:
I was introduced to my company, Isagenix, not long after my baby was born. At the time, I was an "athlete" for another supplement company. I had sort of moved out of the fitness competitor scene and was embracing this new life as a mom. I really didn't know where I fit in with fitness anymore. I was struggling to lose my last little bit of baby weight. I was a "hot mess" and couldn't remember if I had brushed my teeth that day (hello 6 month old baby), much less eat every 3 hours.
Everything I had preached to women for years about with clean eating, I was clearly failing at. I needed something easy.
That's when Isagenix found me through Angelike. My "Facebook friend" Angelike (we'll just call her my angel), reached out to me on social media asking how #momlife was treating me.
For years I had admired her from my computer screen. She was a strong & confident woman who was also in the fitness industry. She was a mom of an adorable little girl. We knew a lot of the same people and even though we had never met in person, I trusted her.
I could have lied and tried to seem like I had it all together with my new responsibilities as a mom, but I put it all out there for her in a Facebook message. We quickly hopped on the phone and chatted about a solution to my problem. It was that simple. I needed help and support.
Even though I could have gotten other supplements for free, I decided to try something that was healthier for my body with no artificial ingredients because I was still pumping breast milk. I wanted something that would be okay for my daughter. I needed more than any old protein shake. I needed a quick, healthy, 60-second MEAL. I was also starting my last semester of graduate school and needed a no-fuss healthy meal that wouldn't take long to prep.
I dropped 5 pounds in no time and I was hooked! My jeans buttoned again. I sought out guidance from a nutritionist friend who informed me that undenatured protein (like Isagenix) is of the highest quality on the market and has great bioavailability to fuel your body and activities. Within two months of using their products, my husband and I had our body fat measured and our lean body mass (muscle) had increased to its highest point ever. I was convinced.
But I still wasn't looking for a business.
I was busy finishing graduate school and taking care of our baby girl. I was also working part-time in marketing. It wasn't until months later that I actually attended a big corporate event and heard the founders speak. I saw the transformations. I saw the income potential from simply marketing a product you love (which I had already done for years and got paid very little). I was shocked at the compensation plan. I got so excited and couldn't sleep the first night I watched the comp plan video!
Here I had just finished my MBA with the hope of getting a higher paying job with a corner office and there were people at this event making six figures and higher without a college education. I was blown away. But I also knew nothing would happen overnight. The light bulb went off. Who could I empower? Who felt stuck that I could bring hope to? Who did I know living paycheck to paycheck? LOTS of people.
I started studying network marketing and had to build my belief in myself and the industry. 80% of people who stick with their business for 10 years or more will MAX OUT the company's compensation plan. The people I watched for years who had given up, had quit too soon! They weren't looking at it with a career mindset.
Now, I don't want to paint this picture that it's easy to build a 6 or 7 figure business. It is called NetWORK Marketing for a reason. But the time and effort you put in consistently over time will pay off. You do need to get training, too. You can only get so far with your current skill set. Many people give up after a few months because they pushed product on social media and they couldn't "sell" anything. If your business isn't going the way you want it to, you can only look within. It's your responsibility to get training. Thankfully, our company offers training all over the world and has an excellent online business resource database.
I am still approached weekly by people at other companies. Let me explain a few reasons that Isagenix is my home and I am blessed they are my first company. This is why you should choose network marketing and Isagenix:
- Isagenix is a product I personally use. I only feel comfortable referring people to what works for me.
- We have consumable products and everyone eats.
- RESIDUAL INCOME. Who doesn't want to get paid while you sleep?
- The main goal people have on January 1st every year is weight loss and Isagenix is an industry leader in weight loss systems that actually work!
- When I coach people with their goals, their biggest struggle is missing meals and convenience. Isagenix has a solution for this!
- Our protein is undenatured, gluten-free, no soy, no sucralose, no artificial ingredients. Certified by Informed Sports.
- They have the best compensation plan! Every company says this, by the way. Our founders have a extensive background in network marketing and when they started Isagenix in 2002, they vowed to create the best compensation plan out there and create more 6 & 7 figure earners than any company! They already have over 250 millionaires in 2018.
- THIS IS HUGE: Our compensation plan is not multi-level marketing. We are not paid on different levels. We are paid indefinitely on everyone who enters our organization. Forever. This is NOT the case for many companies. Our volume rolls over weekly. We are not penalized if someone in our downline surpasses us.
- You don't have to have a formal education to do network marketing. You can get proper training and become a high earner if you are ambitious and motivated.
- You must love helping people and be in it to serve people, not just for money. Put people before profits. Always.
- Anyone can out earn anyone else in our compensation plan. There are no caps and no limits.
- I have met many network marketing professionals who leave their companies & big organizations for Isagenix because their incomes were capped.
- I personally know people who have developed their OWN PRODUCT LINES and abandoned them to start their Isagenix business.
- I am super passionate about being debt-free and helping others achieve the same thing.
- 7 out of 10 households live paycheck to paycheck. Think of how many people we can help!
- I can work my business from my smart phone. I help people open their own online nutrition stores and recommend what they start with.
- Anyone can open an Isagenix account and start earning today! There is no big buy in or coaching fee.
- I love seeing empowered, ambitious people take off with this! I have seen stay-at-home moms hit a 6-figure salary in a short amount of time and it makes me so happy seeing how many people are being blessed by this company.
- Isagenix does not pay for advertising. It pays its associates.
- I love setting my own schedule and working for myself. You do have to time block and schedule in your work or it doesn't get done. But I love it!
- The community is one like no other!
- The integrity of the company is top notch.
- The leadership: we have access to multiple six and seven figure earners as trainers. Are you kidding? Many top network marketers have come to Isagenix as their home after investing years in other companies. Success leaves clues.
- Reason 1,905 that I love this business is because there's no traffic from my kitchen to my office. I can build my business ANYWHERE!
- SET YOUR OWN SCHEDULE.
- Network Marketing is a personal development plan with a compensation plan attached.
If you are with another network marketing company and you would like to know the main differences in the compensation plan and company, take a look:
- We have a binary plan and our volume rolls over weekly (it's not flushed to zero). (We ONLY build 2 sales legs).
- We are not penalized if someone beneath us surpasses us. (Why would you help your team grow if you would be penalized?) This type of breakaway plan is not true residual income.
- We offer food. Everyone eats. (We also have other wellness products and many more coming soon!)
- We are not paid percentages on levels (not multi-level marketing). We are paid indefinitely on the volume that comes into our organization. Everyone is getting healthy together!
- Anyone I enroll will benefit from the other people I enroll after you. Crazy!
- We have many different ways that we are paid, but my favorite way is with the weekly residual income. There are exciting bonuses, trips and promotions you can go for as well!
- Isagenix is a wholesale account. Anyone can sign up and start making money today by referring others. There is no buy-in or coaching fee.
- You don't have to coach challenges or workouts. I am already a personal trainer so I provide this info free to our team!
I could go on and on! After three years with Isagenix, I can honestly say this is THE BEST decision I have ever made in my fitness career. If you are someone people look to for advice, have influence or know anyone who does, you should definitely look at this company and opportunity. I have seen people from all backgrounds become successful: teachers, fitness trainers, photographers, lawyers, doctors, college students, stay at home parents, grandparents, chiropractors, you name it!
I am not here to convince you or drag you. If you are interested in network marketing, do your research.
Our generation doesn't want to be tied to a desk. We want options. We want to make great money without having to put in 40-50 hours a week.
There are people who start this business in their 50's, 60's and 70's to help with retirement and to keep their mind young, and of course, to help others! I only wish I would have known about this company when I was 18 years old starting college.
What if you could work really hard for 2-3 years and it could set your family up financially?
Think about it. Work smarter, not harder. People work so hard during their early years, but often times they get burned out and need a change. Here is a solution.
I'd love to hear about your goals. Sending positive thoughts of abundance your way.
