Have you ever had a job that felt like it was sucking the life out of you? After college, I was given a great job offer to work for a Fortune 100 company. I took the job as a business analyst and got a great signing bonus, salary and benefits. I loved it…for about 3 weeks.
I quickly realized that sitting in a cube for 40-50 hours a week was not the lifestyle I was after. I felt a little hopeless, but I also knew that there had to be a way for me to better design my life. I grew up with two stay-at-home parents, making it hard to get away with anything! My dad came from a broken family on government assistance, but he overcame obstacles and was empowered by the platform of network marketing. Thanks to his desire to give his family a better life than he had, I, too, became aware that I didn’t have to work the typical 9-5 routine and sacrifice my true dreams of being a free person.
With this experience in mind, I decided to pursue a part time home-based business while I worked my day job…and things took off! I had a great team, great products that I personally enjoyed using, and I was making enough money so that at 22, I fired my boss.
Fast forward to today: I still love the industry of network marketing because it’s truly the only level playing field that exists. I’ve seen so many people emerge from their circumstances to become high-functioning, successful, and inspiring. I’ve seen so many traditionally successful people free themselves from a career path that took them away from their families and get back to putting quality time with their family first.
I’ll admit: the first time I was exposed to the concept of building a team, I was very intimidated. Who would follow me? Why would anyone listen to me? Even though it was out of my comfort zone, I started dreaming about what it would be like to actually help play a part in making someone’s life better. I was so moved just thinking about it that I decided to go for it. I’ve gotten obsessed with this philosophy of adding value to people. I love that my team has become my extended family. We care about each other and celebrate each other’s success. We are all on this mission to equip people to be the best versions of themselves possible.
I believe in this industry and I know that when you get lucky enough to find a company like Vollara, you should take the time to really explore and get your questions answered. I felt safe joining this company because I knew I would have a team to support me. I knew that there were real products that solve real problems, and I saw that the profit margins would allow me to find just a few customers a week and be able to make more than any job I had ever worked before. I love connecting people to simple yet innovative solutions for their health and well-being. It’s fun and there’s unlimited potential with this young company.
As a mother, I feel that I owe it to my son to show him that he can pursue his dreams without the constraints of a traditional job. I love that I can create my own schedule and work when it’s convenient for me. I never wanted to have work that got in the way of my life. I’m so glad I found a career that adds meaning to my life and actually complements my values.
