Not what it looks like!

January 21st, 2015

So. It’s the middle of January. What have you done?
I’ve developed a heart flutteryness that makes me easily faint, and not slower through my day or less focused, but when I feel myself sort of losing touch with reality and falling into a fog of shakes and blurs I can fall asleep in a moment. It’s not a seizure, or poor nutrition or dehydration. Walks actually do not make me short of breath, although I am starting to fear that some sort of episode will come on me while I’m out walking A.J or whatever so I’ve been staying close to the house where I have the phone where there to be an emergency. If you know me, you know that I don’t like uncertainty, so I am trying hard to not let fear control me and just take care of myself.

Anyway, the last time that I wrote I subjected on It Works Global, a direct marketing nutrition product line that is rapidly making itself a name in the nutrition industry. I was pretty much groveling for commitment from friends to make themselves a part of the plan that requires individuals to pay for three months of receiving one or more products a month from this company. I needed to get for Loyal Customers in my first 30 days, the motivation being $120 in “free” products. When I was coming into my last week I found myself crying about it, frustrated with people around me and especially with my husband who was always there to say what a gimmick It Works Global was, not even saying that this was his isolated opinion. It did not happen. I called the 1-800 number and found that I can put my rep account on freeze for an entire year, protecting the two Loyal Customers that I did acquire and giving me the flexibility to reopen my account should I come on two more people who would like to receive a product a month for three months. I sighed relief in the midst of disappointment and a chip of heartbreak at the same time, as is my habit in life…what’s up with that? I’m also pretty skilled with bounce back, because, after all, life is too short for long term full time self pity. I went on to apply for Steeped Tea, it’s a loose leaf tea company based out of Canada. I love their product and have no one in my area repping for their organization, so with near equal spontaneity I hopped on that boat. My business starter kit arrived shortly. I discovered that the fifty + catalogs that I go were dated 2014, my purchase made December 2015. A whole new catalog was to be released Feb 1. The booster kit is over $70, and only available until February 1st. I have to buy that, and establish a personal marketing tactic which will include business cards and creating samples to give out with the cards. Part of selling this tea is proving that it is better than the tea available in any grocery or drug store, even gas station across America. Why buy from a Canadian based business that’s closer to releasing a French translation than a Spanish translation. I have to REALLY work this.

Guess what. I love a deal. I went for $1 to join Endless Xpressions, and $1 to join Jewelry in Candles, so I did.

The day before yesterday I signed to be a seller of J.R Watkins products. Remember how I said that my husband did not support It Works Global? He supports JR Watkins, talking it up so much that his stories leave far behind the prospect of joining and usually wind him back in time to when he was young and the Watkins Lady would visit his grandmas and sell her lotions and spices.

My task today is to order business cards for all of these companies and the booster kit for Steeped Tea, the biggest investment. I really believe that I can incorporate all of them into parties. Serve mixes from Watkins with Steeped Tea, while I have a Jewelry in CandlesJewelry in Candles tart burning, all carried in and Endless Xpressions

Even more than that, I believe I can accomplish leadership statuses in a couple of these companies if I stay focused and organized. I also have to keep my house clean, my laundry put away and food on the table while helping kids with homework and volunteering once a week in the kids classes.

My wonderful brother has created a website just for these businesses. It's directnaturals.oraeley.com Can I do all of this? Don’t say NO without giving me a chance. I will remember Deeder’s haircut at 4pm.

It Works Global: Loyal Customers!

January 3rd, 2015

10678625_10203429435511716_3246753733328095786_n I signed up, responding to this graphic. Named my web page after this blog because I was certain that it was a business that the person I’ve always been through here would approve of. The products that It Works Global sells put a name to all the life hacks that I’ve sought to create through the years as my body has changed through pregnancy, child birth and the aftermath of change. Getting healthy again and strong, building confidence and energy without being a world champ athlete.

“From our one-of-a-kind body contouring line to our premium supplements to our botanically based skin care line, there are It Works! products to fit all of your health, nutrition, and beauty needs.” You really do have to see to believe. Their signature product is the Ultimate Body Applicator which really defies what we believe about body contouring. Four wraps are the compete set that It Works Global claim can change, well, flab into fab if I may put it like that. The pictures seem to silly to be true. Like diet plan before and afters that you just know are outrageous. Even at my favorite body weight I’ve been putting on elastics to even my waist line. In pregnancy mamas where a brace to keep their back in line and after the baby is born, I bought into the marketing of baby wraps which help the baby stay close to mamas body. All were fantastic! What’s next?
My business starter kit came with the four set of Ultimate Body Applicators. I had the box for a week before I found the confidence to try it. I was afraid that I’d be the one person allergic to the lotion inside, or worse, that I wouldn’t lose any inches. I couldn’t believe how thin the wraps were. I carefully read the instructions twice over measured myself and took a before picture. The instructions say to drink water and wear the wrap for 45 minutes. Check. Moment of truth. Just half an inch difference. I was disappointed. Instructions say to keep going with the water drinking and check again in a couple days. I dropped 2 1/2 inches by the time that segment of time had lapsed. The scent: Menthol-y, and then as the time wore on, I actually was smelling chamomile. Supposedly the results are different for everyone. Search, “It Works” on YouTube and you just wont know which way to look! People really do have all sorts of experiences. The community has been wonderful, they’re supportive and educate each other as they personally grow as reps and beyond.

The reason that I signed to be a rep rather than a Loyal Customer was because I signed back in Vermont to become a loyal customer of a program, that I don’t even remember the name, and found it impossible to change my shipment. I did lose 60lbs, but felt that I had no control over what I was getting. I got a recipe book, a vitamin regime and a powdered shake mix, along with pamphlet that outlined a weekly exercise pattern to follow. While I obviously was happy for the changes, I was not happy for the charges or lack of control over a program that involved actually a six month commitment. This was before computer was utilized as an online ordering system custom to customers.

untitled (2)Today I’m looking for Loyal Customers for a program that you can trust to be flexible for you. It is a monthly commitment, but just a three month monthly commitment. I’m waiving the $50 registration fee, and giving you the prices on products that I get as a distributor. Not home when your order is due to come? Delay it, as long as it comes in that month you’ve held up to the Loyal Customer program. Why does it pay to be Loyal? You’re trying amazing products that you can’t just pick up at Costco or the local drug store. You may also refer friends, sharing the It Works love and get perk points be referring them to order through your customer website where you have the freedom to make product adjustments.

Thinking that vitamins idea sounds neat that I described getting from another company back in 2006? You can get it for $69 as a LC. The normal retail cost is $115, which is about what I paid back in the day from another company. The packaging wasn’t quite as awesome, but if you were to ask my husband he’d remember as clear as if it were yesterday! There’s nothing fun about having unexpected costs. Forgot your auto shipment is coming? It Works doesn’t allow opportunity for that. You’ll get an email reminder that it’ll be shipped in a few days and what you currently have on order, at that time go ahead and log into your personal account if you want to make any changes. Find the individually packaged specific to morning and evening vitamin supplements under “Life Style” in Our Catalog. They’re called, It’s Vital: Complete Nutrition Pack. Since you don’t have a personalized site as a Loyal Customer yet, find that on my It Works site.

Today I’m just so wanting you as my Loyal Customer, because as a distributor you make my world go around! Loyal Customers mean good people who keep me in business! When I have 4 LCs in 30 days I get $120 in free products. I’ve been amazed by the Ultimate Body Applicator, now I want to try some other products and buy some samples to help promote the It Works Global love so that more people can discover this incredible product line.

A fellow distributor posted this terrific graphic: 10347641_607452584470_2601396758103484050_nWith it she wrote a short story about demoing It Works wraps for a party of four and leaving without anyone signing to buy the products. She’d held a give away which meant she was short one on rep materials. She said as the moral of the story that she could have left feeling like she’d just wasted two hours of her life, but could also make the choice to view this as a opportunity seized to plant the seed of these unique products, gained two Facebook friends at the end of the day and had one person to follow up on who said she’d talk to her husband about the product line. A story like that with such a sweet graphic just makes me smile and feel a little more sure that I still have a chance to win over some interest and those two more Loyal Customers. Remember, it’s a two month from this month period of trying out products that you can get no where else.
Visit Oraeley.myitworksshare.com, please! And go ahead and message me on any questions at all. I have until January 8th! Products that I want to try: Essential Energy bars, found in Lifestyle, New You, also in Lifestyle, and Ultimate Thermofit. All items that sound like they’re pretty much made for me. While I’m at it, I might as well buy up the whole Lifestyle section. I know I’ll continue to move on to the Skin Care pages. That $120 in products will totally help in beginning my journey with It Works. I need you though!

Last year I actually started off the year with a graphic similar to the kitten one. It was an old lady sitting in a wheel chair, looking quite old with her white hair up in a bun and her shoulders hunched in. In the long oval mirror in front of her she saw a beautiful ballerina posed in a graceful pirouette. The meme read: “You are who you dream you can be.” Her face had a smile as she looked into the mirror and there were no words beyond that necessary. I got a couple comments that, boy, hopefully she doesn’t stand. How can I advertise a product that I’ve only seen unexplainably bring in my four times over stretched out belly? I was amazed. Other people noticed, and I just can hardly wait to try more products! I dream I can do it, so I can? Maybe!

Anyway, thanks for reading! Visit my site and ask me anything. If you sign with me today, March will be your last month on the LC program. Maybe you’ll love it so much that you’ll want to join my team! If you renew your Loyal Customer subscription with me you’ll get extra perk points. I see this as being a fantastic deal!

Prompts!

I’d love to use this through my daily blogging but probably wont. Posting it anyway! Seems like a fantastic idea! I know I’d visit a blog or FB page that had such light hearted and predictable writing and images. Cheers.
