Why I Started My Business 3 Different Times… (and what changed the 3rd time!)

Many of you know that I started my business 3 different times.

The 3rd time around it still took me 6 months to sign my first distributor. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But it doesn’t matter that it took me 6 months to get my first distributor because ultimately I got to BLACK DIAMOND and became the top income earner!

So, what changed the 3rd time around?!

It was the timing!!!
This time it was my decision.
This time I knew my why.
This time I knew it wasn’t a matter of IF I would succeed, it was simply a matter of when!

So, even though I said “yes” the first two times… it was really a no in my mind. I wasn’t ready to go all-in until the 3rd time when it was truly my choice and my timing.

And a lot of times when someone tells us “no” it doesn’t really mean no forever. It just means no, not at this time in my life.

But guess what?? Everyone goes through transitions in life! And it wasn’t until I became a mom and held my baby boy in my arms that I was truly ready to RUN with my business! Suddenly I knew I couldn’t go back to school and raise everyone else’s kids while someone was at home raising mine.

And right now we are in scary, unprecedented times! More than 10 million people applied for unemployment last month!!!!

I’m not saying what we do is for everyone! And we absolutely need to be thoughtful of how we approach people. But someone you’ve been too afraid to reach our to or someone who said no to this opportunity 6 months ago might be in a different place today.

That’s why it’s so important to keep building new relationships, keep telling your story, and keep sharing what we do!

You don’t know when someone is going to experience a transition and need something like this… but you want to be the person they think of when they do!

I hope this episode encourages you to keep telling your story & keep sharing what we have to offer! As always, I’d love to hear your feedback – drop me a comment below or tag me on social and tell me what you thought!

Sending so much love to all of you listening!
