Tell us about yourself and your business: I’m a single mom of two toddlers, ages 1 and 3. I’m a psychotherapist by trade and have always loved building relationships with people, a networker at heart. Being a mother comes first and an entrepreneur second, and I love the title “mompreneur!” I happen to be a real Facebook junkie as well. J
As a network marketer, I’m promoting the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge. Helping folks reach their health goals, lose weight, and get fit. It’s really great watching people transform their lives! (And I began with my own and am down 10 pounds so far!)
I also am a home business consultant, and have been helping new home business owners learn about this industry and get a quick start in their business. I am currently focusing on providing trainings, seminars, and webinars to teams and groups on using social media, goal setting, mindset, leadership, and more.
What inspired you to start a business? I spent over ten years working my way up in the non-profit world. I began as a psychotherapist helping children and families, then started managing programs, developing programs, and then training and implementing legislation for the same population. With a baby on the way, I realized that I wanted to work from home. I had no idea where to start! Being new to network marketing and to the home business world, I saw my experience and training transferring over to a new industry despite being so inexperienced. As my business grew, I determined that I wanted to not only run a home business and mentor those on my team, but to become a consultant and help other home business owners as well. Building relationships, training and helping others are huge passions of mine! I've been home with my two toddlers every day and have the joy of watching them grow and the flexibility and time freedom to enjoy it.
Share one business goal: To personally help more moms stay home with their children and earn a significant income. So many families are really hurting right now in this economy and I’d love to introduce them to the world of home business and show them how this industry can help everyday people, like me, with little or no experience become successful network marketers.
What would you say contributes to your success? There are definitely many ingredients! Being a heart driven leader is first and foremost. It’s allowed me to effectively lead my team. Having the right mindset and attitude are key are well. Treating my business at home as I would a business outside of the home has been critical too. Meaning, sticking to appointments, timelines, and To Do lists, rather than allowing distractions to come up throughout the day!
What advice would you give an aspiring entrepreneur? You may change paths or seek guidance along the way, but never, ever give up on yourself! You can be successful and achieve any goal you commit to and take action on. Remember, success has more to do with attitude then aptitude!
