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. I felt kind of lost.
About seven months into the swing of things, I 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. It was a “do as you’re told, don’t think” environment.
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 local women’s networking 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.
So, I began to dig deep to see what it is I’m truly passionate about & how I could earn a living from it. My self-journey made me realize that I absolutely love personal engagement with people & helping them with their needs. Helping them enhance their lives.
AND I had my own hair issues… but that’s another story, so stay tuned.
I tried a sample & girrrrrl, I FELL. IN. LOVE. It’s magic hair crack. Shampoo made with pixie dust and unicorn tears, and a lot of science.
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?
Naturally, 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! But something inside of me… I couldn’t let this opportunity slip through my fingers.
During what felt like a year of pondering, (so one 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?
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 😀 Forbes, FORBES YOU GUYS, says that the best time to join a company is in the midst of global expansion & product launches. FORBES.
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. Because let me tell you something, I’m never asking again if I can take a day off.
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.
I wonder what it could do for you?
