Disclaimer: Just a quick heads up, everything I'm about to share in this blog post is straight from my own experiences and opinions. What you're about to read doesn't necessarily represent the views of the company or anyone else. So, you know, take it all with a pinch of salt.
Alright, let's get real: One of the coolest things about joining a community like this is how it can help you discover new things about yourself. You make new friends, and suddenly, the world looks different. For someone like me, who's all about learning in unconventional ways, I've found that some of the craziest stories have had the biggest impact on making me a better person – a better businesswoman, a solid friend, and a deeper thinker.
Navigating Change During the Pandemic
So, here's the deal. I hopped on the Monat train right smack in the middle of the COVID-19 chaos when the world felt like it was ending (not to be morbid, but it's true). I decided to take a breather from school and work, just to focus on who I wanted to be, the life I wanted to live, and what I really wanted to do. It's worth noting that I simultaneously launched my marketing agency, CCN, during this period, a testament to my readiness for entrepreneurship. The burning desire to carve out my own path and escape the shackles of others' expectations had become an unwavering compass guiding my decisions.
When I joined Monat, I was welcomed with open arms by an awesome team. Suddenly, I was thrust into a whole new world of business meetings and a level of energy I'd never encountered before. I've always known that I wanted to be an entrepreneur, but up until that point, my life was basically a never-ending series of 9-to-5 gigs. I didn't have a clue about how to start a business and actually make it work. But this team, I mean seriously, gave me a crash course in business, sales, and networking. The only problem? I wasn't entirely ready for all of it.
The Nitty-Gritty of Network Marketing
So, here's the real scoop about network marketing, especially in a setup like Monat – it's not a get-rich-quick scheme. It's more like a marathon than a sprint. Success takes time and a whole lot of steady effort.
I jumped on the Monat bandwagon in 2020, but I never ranked up. Now, don't get all worked up. It had nothing to do with the company, the products, or my team. It was me. I was in my own way.
Lots of folks don't make it in network marketing, not because the company isn't good, but because they let their doubts, fears, and lack of sales knowledge hold them back. But here's the kicker – the moment I shifted my mindset from just wanting to make money to wanting to make a difference, something changed deep inside me. Suddenly, I felt this urge to share something amazing, something special.
Beauty isn't just skin deep, you know. These Monat products didn't just make me look good; they made me feel confident and ready to chase my passions.
In business, you've got to be more than just business-savvy. You've got to free yourself from your own self-inflicted wounds, the guilt trips others lay on you, and that scarcity mindset that tries to keep you down.
Finding a Bigger Why
I joined Monat for the first time for selfish reasons. And it didn't benefit me in the long run.
I am joining Monat for the second time to bring beauty into the world. The beauty of Jesus’s love and wisdom, the beauty of nature and its greatest gifts to us, the beauty of health and wellness, the beauty of fashion and the art that we wear, the beauty of ourselves and how we feel inside and out, and the beauty of the work that we do for others. To inspire them to be more than their circumstances and to create a life that dominoes and trickles down to inspire others.
If you're not convinced just yet, no worries. Keep an eye on the amazing things this company has to offer. But if you're curious about some of those goodies, here's a sneak peek:
Joining this community you get a few awesome things:
A great mentor who is determined to help you change the narrative of your life.
A great community that is working to reach their goals just like you
A great array of products that are plant-based, gluten-free, fragrance-free, and leaping bunny certified.
An opportunity to grow and scale monetarily.
Incisive trips to places such as Mexico, LA, Vegas, Europe, and so many more beautiful places.
And this is the tip of the iceberg. I hope this helps you gain a better perspective of my own experience as an ambassador of the Monat brand. And I hope you continue to see the work that is forever constant as I grow and become a better woman, mentor, and leader in this space and many others!
As a bonus to this blog, I want to share with you my amazing experience with Monat in Vlog form! Here is my one-of-a-kind experience at the 2022 Monations in St. Louis Missouri.
