how did i get here?

Three years ago, I had just moved back to Dayton after living out of state for 10 years.
I only knew about a handful of people here.

Right before I met Monat, I had just lost my job in Corporate America as a Recruiter of Language Professionals.
Part of me was absolutely devastated because I had so much debt I was working to payoff.

Student loans, credit cards, & some medical bills. You name it, I had it.

So, I WAS FREAKING OUT because being debt free is a huge life goal for me.

The other half of my Gemini personality was so RELIEVED because I was freed from the prison that was my job. Because you see, Corporate & I are not good friends.

So, I started networking locally in hopes that I would find my dream career – even though I had no idea what it was. I just figured, I’d know it when I saw it.

Eventually, I met the woman who ultimately became my upline.

I heard Martha share her story at a meeting & SO MANY THINGS were running through my head.

I didn’t know what being my own boss meant, but I knew I wanted to be in charge of my life & my income.

It had never occurred to me that I could work for myself without starting from complete scratch, in the traditional sense.

I began to dig deep to see what it is I’m truly passionate about & how to earn a living from it.

My self-journey made me realize that I absolutely love engagement with people & helping them with their needs.

AND I had my own hair issues… but that’s another story.

So I tried a sample & girrrrrl, I FELL. IN. LOVE.

I thought to myself, if this could make such a difference for my hair & make me feel so confident, who could I share this with to help feel the same?

I hesitated for a week. I went back & forth, & back & forth… Should I do it? Should I not?
And I prayed hard. I didn’t want to make the wrong decision!

During that week, Monat was having their annual convention &

I was watching all of Martha’s posts. I was pretty much stalking her. I wanted to see everything she was up to. Half the time I didn’t know what I was even looking at!!

But, you know what I noticed immediately? Community.

I saw how strong of a community Monat created for their people. AND I WANTED IT.
I realized how much I missed having a strong community.

And so, you’re probably watching us & what we’re sharing on social & maybe you’re curious about what we’re doing too, just like I was.

I gotta tell you, clicking the ‘join now’ button was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Another one was Lasik 😀

I honestly can’t imagine my life without Monat. I’d be stuck at a dead end job, working 9-5 for the rest of my life. I’d continue to be overworked, underpaid, & unappreciated. I’d be HOPING to retire before I fall over.

I would have no hope of living life on my terms because I’d be restricted to someone else’s opinion of what my schedule & my income should look like. I’m not going to keep ASKING someone if I can take a day off.

But Monat is changing my life.

Monat got me out of credit card debt.
It’s helping pay for my wedding this September.
It’s molding me into a better person.
It’s giving me the community I’ve always wanted.
It’s helping me love myself again.

In time, I’ll walk away from Corporate America & I’ll have the time freedom to freelance with Linguistic research & do Monat on my schedule!

But, until then, I’m going to keep sharing the love & meeting my goals.
