An intimate look behind the scenes of my business model

This week I’m taking my annual sojourn to Salt Lake City, Utah, the home of my product partner, USANA, for its international convention.

I don’t talk a ton about my network marketing business, but since I’ll be posting a lot on social media this week about my USANA family and what we’re up to at the conference ⎯ or, as I like to call it, our family reunion ⎯ I figured it was a good time to shed some light on it.

Here’s the quick version:

I created financial freedom through building a business in the direct sales/network marketing industry with USANA. My mom started me on their health and wellness products when I was 12, and I started my business when I was 18.

My vision was to have enough passive/residual income to cover my living expenses by the time I had kids so I could choose to be a stay-at-home mom if I wanted to. Mike and I achieved that goal, and we couldn’t be more grateful to this industry and to USANA. I get teary pretty much every time I talk about it.

Direct what? Network who?

I tend to use the terms network marketing and direct sales interchangeably, but basically they refer to a way of advertising and selling a product via already-devoted consumers who are paid to spread the word about the product.

A couple of weeks ago I realized I had a great Glimpse TV episode talking about this exact topic that I’d never published, and I thought now would be the perfect time to share it. The episode beautifully and transparently talks about this industry that I hold so near and dear to my heart.

(As a side note, I am flexible about my editorial calendar precisely for moments like this. Mike and I are focusing way more of our time and energy on USANA and building our USANA team, The Freedom Family, this year. Even though we filmed this episode a year ago, now is a much better time to share it with you than last August. The takeaway: Trust your timing even if on the surface it looks like something is late. In fact, it may be perfectly on time.)

This episode features the incredible Elizabeth Rider, who I will be seeing this week along with the rest of my USANA family. Liz is one of the smartest businesswomen I know. I’ve benefitted so much from her sage advice over the years, and I wanted you to enjoy it too.

In this episode of Glimpse TV Liz and I reveal:

  • What to do when you get to a point where you feel disenchanted by your business (don’t worry – it happens to everyone!)
  • What you need to give yourself permission to do every now and again
    The most common, seductive thing that knocks entrepreneurs off their path
  • Who should become a health coach and who shouldn’t
  • The most dependable way to guarantee your income as a health practitioner
  • The one thing everyone who works for themselves MUST learn how to do
  • The secret ingredient to sustainable income
  • What to watch out for when searching for a great network marketing company to partner with (and what to avoid)

Awesome Bonus Content:

After watching this episode I decided to put together a free report for you with a super cheesy name. It’s called:

Don’t Join A Network Marketing/Direct Sales Company Without Reading This Free Report That Reveals The 9 Key Ingredients A Company Must Have To Be Worthy Of Your Time (Plus 6 Red Flags To Avoid Like The Plague)

To get the free report, CLICK HERE.

Why so cheesy? Because I’m practicing calling things what they are instead of creative names that are fun but leave you saying, “Huh? What is that?”.

And because I wanted it to compel you to take action.

Here’s the deal: Like in any industry (life coaching, fashion, internet marketing, personal growth), there are great network marketing companies, people, and teams and there are awful ones.

If, like Liz and I, you have a genuine desire to create true financial freedom, then I want to help steer you in the direction of a company that’s worth your time and attention.

You’re awesome and you need to only partner with the awesome.

Grab the FREE REPORT HERE and learn how to identify the awesome from the not-so-awesome amidst the sea of companies, teams, sponsors, offers, and products.

Over to you:

We barely scratched the surface on what residual income is, how to leverage yourself, how to build a business as a health coach, and the network marketing/direct sales industry.

I would love to know what questions you still have after watching the episode.

Why I’m no longer panicking about fitting into my wedding dress

I’ll admit, I was skeptical. When I first heard about tapping, or the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), I thought it was really weird. Seriously, could tapping my hand on points on my body really be an effective strategy for overcoming pain, anxiety, or any of the other things it claimed to help? As it turnsContinue Reading
