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.
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.
