How Our Family’s Leap of Faith Lead to New Business Opportunities
About a year ago, my husband and I started taking a serious look at our life.
Sitting down, we wrote our goals and our dreams for us and our two little boys.
Taking a hard look at our current life, it turned out, the path we were on…… was NOT taking us any closer to the life that we dreamed of.
We started asking ourselves A LOT of questions.
What did we want? What were our Priorities? Our Values?
These questions, a lot of research and a LOT of prayers led us to moving our family to Colorado.
This move has challenged just about everything… our faith in ourselves, our closeness as a family, our bank accounts… but the biggest challenge has been for my business….
I spent 3.5 years growing a big and thriving business in Southern California. I became a top leader in less then 3 years and have a team of over 300 reps!
My calendar pretty much kept itself full. I had calls and emails regularly for home parties, speaking engagements and sales.
Moving to Colorado would change all that. I would have to start over in a new place.
I thought, I’d just take all that I had learned in 3.5 years and put it all into action in my new home.
The sad truth was……… I didn’t WANT TO!!!!
I felt and sounded like a baby, but “I had already done this! I didn’t want to start all over again!” (In my best temper tantrum voice)
Not to mention the fact that I didn’t have help with watching my kids, and knocking on business doors, pounding the pavement, networking…..shoot even basic phone calls all get infinitely harder with a 4 year old in tow….
So, I started looking at how to take my business online.
I knew that the key to growing my business beyond my current locale rested in leveraging the power of the internet and social media.
Social Media and Internet Marketing would also be the best way to stay in touch with the thousands of customers and hundreds of team members I had across the country.
The problem was….. Outside of posting pictures on Facebook, I was the definition of “not tech savvy”
I called a Business Coach friend of mine, who started walking me through this world of online business.
I had no idea about affiliate marketing, lead funnels, autoresponders or even Customer Relations Management systems (CRMs).
This was all new to me and COMPLETELY OVERWHELMING!!!!
It was all I could do to follow the process, but when it came to trying to build things like lead magnets, programs, Facebook Ads and more, I felt so lost.
I started following other internet marketers…. which was good and bad.
It was a fantastic education, but it also became SO MUCH MORE overwhelming! Every element of what they did looked so professional!!!!!!!!
Not only did I not have the “know how” but I didn’t have the equipment or the budget to create what they were doing…….
I was praying to find someone to just “build it for me!”
WELL!!!! Can you believe that I FOUND IT!!!!
Did you know that there are actually companies that have already BUILT IT FOR YOU?????
There are companies out there that have made it so simple to start marketing your business online right away! And you don’t have to be tech savvy?!?!?!
I know! I know! Do you hear the clouds parting and the Angels singing?!?! ME TOO!!
AND they’ve created programs and trainings that not only can YOU benefit and learn from, BUT you can also EARN MONEY for sharing them with other people who are trying to learn the same things you are!!!
Well, just like I felt like the world shifted when I discovered Direct Sales/Network Marketing and the opportunity to become my own boss and work for myself…. I just felt ANOTHER WORLD SHIFT!
I am SO excited to jump in and use this blogging format to share with you my journey and my lessons learned so that you too can create the business of your dreams!
I look forward to sharing the knowledge I gain with you and taking you along this journey with us.
While leaving the comfort and stability of my business behind in California has not been easy, it has lead to the biggest breakthroughs yet!
Now that I have found this “home” for my business, I am excited about what the future holds for me, my business, my family and for all the people I will be able to help along the way!
Love and Blessings!
