Those that know me well know that 90% of our conversation is going to be me quoting song lyrics. My name that tune level is expert and I have a song for every mood and occasion. What does this have to do with business and #glowgetternation?
On April 5, 2017, I bought tickets to a concert. The band? Matchbox Twenty. This band has been on my list of must see concerts for years. They often have tour dates that just aren’t close enough to make it reality. Whether the universe heard my call or not is still up for debate but one thing I can say for sure is: today I was able to purchase concert tickets without worrying about paying them off on a credit card. My ‘bucket list’ things have gone from being a list on paper, to real. My company didn’t give me this blessing, I gave it to myself. I earned it.
Every time I use that purple card to make a purchase like this one I remind myself that once upon a time, a nervous young woman paid $119 to buy some makeup, little did she know the doors it would open. It was my third attempt at network marketing. Empower, Uplift, Validate. Those are 3 little words that I have come to live by and when people ask me why I do 'this crazy thing’. I usually clam up, never sure of what is an acceptable answer because the reality is: people don’t accept what they don’t understand.
So why do I do it? To change lives. My tagline is literally ‘empowering women: personally and professionally’. When I purchased those tickets this morning, using cash, not blinking, not stressing, NOT HAVING TO MISS OUT; that, was empowering. I want every woman I encounter to leave smiling a little brighter than before we met. I want women to feel the pride, excitement and gratitude that I felt this morning. Knowing that everyday I have this gift that I can offer to other women is a blessing in itself. I help other women succeed everyday.
That’s why I do this; to change lives.
