Be Your Own Boss & Find Limitless Potential

Be Your Own Boss & Find Limitless Potential

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.

The Perks of Being Your Own Boss

The Perks of Being Your Own Boss


The speed of life is changing…and so is the way people view their career. Growing numbers of men and women are less content with bringing someone else’s vision to fruition, and more interested in setting their own standards and blazing new trails. More and more people are finding themselves trapped in a monotonous routine at their present jobs: unhappy, unhealthy, unchallenged and unfulfilled.

The idea of self-employment can be at once the logical answer for a next step, and a terrifying prospect. But for the right-minded people, entrepreneurship and business ownership is great step in the right direction. Being in control of things like job security, hours, goals and creative strategies is an attractive lure to transitioning from being the employee to the employer.

Many people think about what it would be like to be their own boss at some point in their career, but few see it as a realistic, attainable goal – mostly because they think it’s too hard or they have no idea where to start. Truly, the hardest part is building up the courage and determination to step out on your own. Imagine making your own schedule so you didn’t have to miss out on the most important times of your life. Being your own boss means taking control of your life’s purpose, direction, growth, and success.

The best entrepreneurs go for what they want in life while successfully tackling challenges that arise, and they do it in record time. Being your own boss still involves work, but you determine when and how it happens with the freedom to operate your business how you see fit, applying what you know and learn to improve and produce the best results at your own pace. It also means not having to wait for someone else’s approval or a promotion that may never come. As your own boss, you can make an ideal income and a robust social life a reality.

What if you experienced something so wonderful that you wanted to share it with others? What if that experience was a lifestyle that helped people live healthier, longer lives?
