Being a mummy, I truly know the value of time

My whole reason for starting a business that gave me more time, was for a future family….

Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time’ is like saying ‘I don’t want to’ – Loo Tzu

or someone else. Yes, I would of got maternity leave, but I would of had to go back to work at some point, relying on childcare and wishing for the weekends and 5 weeks holiday a year. Its just not the life I wanted.Rewind a few years, I had a successful business but spent so much time on the road, working evenings and weekends. Even when I then got in the door, I would spend more time answering client emails, booking appointments and placing orders. I knew this way of working didn’t work around a baby and family. But, I also did not want to go back into employment, working f

I earned good money with my business, but I was trading my time. So when I went on holiday I wouldn’t earn and then would be playing catch up when I got home. I would also of had to go back to work 2 weeks after having our baby boy as being self-employed I couldn’t of afforded anymore time off, with no maternity pay. 

If I hadn’t taken a risk to make a change, one of those scenarios would of been my future. Has it been hard work? YES. Have I wanted to give up at times? YES. Did I ever feel like it wasn’t going to work for me? YES. But, the numbers don’t lie – if you work at something consistently for a period of time, you don’t have to HOPE that it is going to work for you, you can be safe i
n knowing that it WILL work for you.

I have just got home from a week long trip to Tenerife building business and because of this opportunity I was able to take my partner and our little boy. Jenson is now 6 months old, and his flight home was his twelfth flight since he was born!  These business related trips have included America, Denmark, Scotland and obviously Tenerife.  In 2 weeks time it is taking us to Miami & New York and then in April we go back to America again followed by Cancun and also to Marbella for a European convention.  I could never have envisaged travelling so much let alone getting paid for it but this is where this business can take you. I love that it doesn’t matter where I am in the world, that I can have my baby with me and still make money as long as I have wifi. Whether it is at home on the sofa because we are tired, whether it’s on a day out because we are going on an adventure, or whether we are in a totally different country altogether.

Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport – Unknown

I would love EVERY woman I come into contact with to take a look at this opportunity, because being a Mummy I truly know the value of time, Time goes fast, way too fast, spend it doing what you love, with who you love. For me having the knowledge that I will never miss any part of him growing up and seeing all his ‘firsts’ is more valuable than anything that money can buy.

Winning The Network Marketer of the Year Award


Winnning The Network Marketer of the Year Award…

It has been a whirlwind few weeks for me since winning the award for NETWORK MARKETER OF THE YEAR, but I finally have chance to put my thoughts into words…

Rewind a few years….At school I was the girl that went bright red if I had to speak in front of the class. I would do anything I could to blend into the background. In my teens, I was the girl that wouldn’t even take an item back in a shop because I was too shy, I would rather ask my Mum to phone to book an appointment for me because I hated speaking to new people. In my first job out of university when I got told I had to do a presentation to 6 people, I wanted to hand in my notice. When I started this business, I was the girl that would NEVER be able to speak on stage, I looked up to all these confident, inspirational speakers and thought that could never be me. I didn’t want to get out of my comfort zone, I was happy hiding behind my computer screen. That is why an online business using social media was a natural fit for me….I could network online, and build a business while doing that. 

But, guess what…..this amazing thing happened. My confidence grew, little by little. I learned that I was good at building relationships, I could speak about our products because I was using them, and I could talk about the business from the heart, because I was living it. 

‘Everything you’ve ever wanted, is one step outside of your comfort zone’

Before I knew it, and with a nudge in the right direction from some exceptional mentors that I have, I was able to get up on stage and share my knowledge on our business, to talk about the experience I was having….every time this happened, I would be a bag of nerves, voice shaking, and sweaty palms. But you know what, it doesn’t matter. In life there will be people that are amazing at speaking on stage, and then there will be the people like me, where it takes everything they have to get up there. Now, I am that girl on stage, and I am that girl that will talk about our business to a friendly face anywhere I go…

So, if you are reading this, and you think you will NEVER be able to talk confidently in front of new people, or you stumble over your words, your shy, you won’t be good at networking and you think these things will hold you back. Trust me when I say…… don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be willing to step out that comfort zone. Little by little you will grow as a person, and as you do, you business will grow….and that is where the magic happens.

Thank you to everyone that voted for me to win this special award, I am so grateful. It marks a special time in my life where I now know, I am the girl that can do ANYTHING…
