Here is the Challenge
When growing up, most of us were told that we have to have a 9-5 job. And that job will pay us what someone else determines is our worth. We are led to believe that we don't have a choice.
But we do have a choice
When we make a salary or an hourly wage, someone else is deciding what we are worth, what our skills and talents are worth. But it doesn't have to be that way.
You can decide what your effort and your time are worth
You can create a career on your own time, on your schedule. You can decide what you want to be paid. AND... You can do it alongside what you are currently doing, until you are ready to step away. Or not. Maybe you just want the freedom to pay a little extra on a loan, send your kids to the college of their choice, or take that vacation that you have dreamed of. All that is possible!
I was! But when I looked at the facts, the proven business plan and that I could build a business on my time, from anywhere, I was all in. I not only have more time to do the things that are important to me, but I get a paycheck based on my effort.
And it's not just about the money and the time you'll have
The friendships, connections (new and old) and personal growth are just icings on the cake. I didn't have all the answers when I started, didn't know what to do, but this is a business of team work and support like nothing I have ever experienced.
Plus, we get to help others change their lives, alongside with changing our own!
My top 10 - being my own boss
1. Time freedom
This business lets you work when you want. You can let your work fit around your life, not your life fit around your work. If you have WiFi, you can do your business. It's that simple, and so freeing!
I have worked my business at the beach, in the middle of the sea cruising the Caribbean, in my carpool line at school. Anywhere, anytime, but I get to decide when.
2. Get paid for you efforts
You can decide what you want your paycheck to be. Would $500 a month make a difference? Do you want to make enough to pay your mortgage? Do you want to make enough each month to pay for your kids' college tuition? Maybe you want to go on a dream vacation that seems out of reach? It isn't. It's all possible and based on the effort you put in.
I was able to replace my part-time corporate income in just 3 short months. Since then, my check has grown so that I am now able to help in our family finances in ways I never thought possible. (This is my unique story. To see what’s possible for you, please contact me.)
3. Owning your business has tax benefits
If you are an independent business owner, there are tax benefits. You will have the ability to write off expenses that you may already have, but now can get the tax benefit from those expenses. (Individual circumstances may apply, check with your financial advisor or tax expert for more information.)
We all have things we pay for on a regular basis. What is an added benefit of business ownership is that many of those expenses were things that I can now write off on my taxes, giving me more money on the bottom line each year. An added benefit to owning your own business that I hadn't thought about. (Discuss your options with your personal tax or financial advisor.)
4. A Positive work environment
Instead of being in a career or work environment where everyone is trying to get ahead, stepping on others to get to the top, our industry allows everyone to get to the top. There is room for everyone and everyone wants to see others succeed.
In all of my previous work environments, there has been a sense of "dog eat dog" and "I'll do whatever it takes" to get ahead. I have worked with some incredible people along my journey, but I also know that it hasn't always been positive and encouraging. This is the first experience in my career, where it is positive, encouraging, and uplifting. Celebrating others' successes and them celebrating mine is the way it should be.
5. A supportive network
Yes, you will be an independent business owner, and be in business for yourself. But you are never by yourself. You will have coaching, training, encouragement and guidance along your journey to a successful entrepreneurial career.
When I started, I didn't know anything about this business model, the products or coaching others. But with the support of mentors, co-workers and our corporate staff, I have never felt alone. I have always had more than enough training and guidance. It is there if you choose to be coachable and follow the business plan.
6. Personal growth
Growing professionally and personally is an unexpected benefit to this business and career. You will learn things about yourself and how to help others in ways that can truly change you and them.
There are aspects of this business that I would have never seen myself doing prior to being on this journey. I have grown both professionally (learning new skills, a new industry, etc.) but have grown in my personally as well. I have pushed myself in areas that I probably never would have. You, too, may be pushed out of your comfort zone to try new things to grow in both your personal and your professional development and skills.
7. The opportunity to give back
Giving back may mean sharing your time, talents or your treasure. There will be many opportunities to share with others. You can share your experiences, your expertise and your insights. The possibilities are endless.
Having more time for myself and my family and friends has allowed me to give more of myself to them, but also to causes and personal development that I haven't been able to before. I'm able to be there for the ones I love, be more present, but also give my time and treasures to causes that are dear to me.
8. Available to everyone
It doesn't matter what your educational level is, your race, age, sex, or geographic location. This business is for anyone.
I have had some great experiences with jobs in my life and have met some amazing people. But I had always felt that not finishing college or getting that degree has held me back. This business model allows my talents to shine and I'm not limited to what I can earn because of my education level, where I live or how old I am. This business is for anyone!
9. The Company
Our company was founded just 10 years ago. The company has grown to over a Billion dollars in sales annually with endless expansion into new markets. Being part of a company that is backed by experts in the field, products that do what they say they will (money back guaranteed products) and has global expansion, is a no brainer. Why wouldn't you partner with such a company?
I had not tried the products, didn't even know what they did or how they were used when I was introduced to this opportunity. But I knew that I didn't want to miss out. I didn't want to look back and think, "Man, I had a chance to be a part of that." I knew this was going to be huge and I wanted a piece of it!
This is a do anywhere, anytime kind of business. It is simple. The business model is simple. Easy? Not always.
Like I stated earlier, I didn't know anything about this industry, the company or the business when I started. But I followed those who paved the way. I did the training. I followed the plan. And I have had success. It has changed my life on so many levels other than monetarily. It can do the same for you. And you can to gain the life of your dreams and create your joy.
