The Relationships Built In Network Marketing

I was so inspired today I had to write this post…

#Networkmarketing is not solely about selling a product….

Days like today and so many are about creating and nurturing #genuinerelationships. It’s about genuinely caring about the person in front of you and finding out who they are, what motivates them, what their passions are, what makes them tick, what their favorite things in life are, and and so much more. It is a #relationship business, It is not about lipstick 💄

The sales will come once the relationships are formed…..

If it wasn’t for my business, and independent #AvonRepresentative none of what I am about to share with you would be possible.

Here in #bermuda I met some amazing #women and men in my #business that I would never have met without being in this business.

By taking a genuine interest in the women I spent time with today I learned the following.

From left to right:

My sweet friend Ann Fritz is an amazing mother of twins! A boy and a girl and her absolute best friend of twenty years brought her into this business. Anne has achieved so much in life and in her business! She is also clearly more coordinated and athletic than any of us! #supermom

Tara L Erwin-Grna is truly One of the kindest women I have ever met! We shared some amazing stories that I will forever carry with me! What an amazing, strong, resilient person you are Tara! She is a #Zumba instructor, and always lights up the room!

Natasha Lightner is the worlds tiniest dynamite…. She is a tough little lady, and one heck of a business women! I found out she has a soft side lol she is as warm as they come…..She also has two beautiful boys just like me!

Then there’s me …. which you all know 😁

What we share In common is that we all came from #corporate America. We are women, friends, mothers, wives and #entrepreneurs trying to build our own #empire.

We love the #freedom and #independence our business has given us!

My favorite part of these photos….. they show #sisterhood, unity, and above all leadership.

Leadership is not a title, it’s not how much money you make or how many trophies 🏆 you have #leadership is a way of life, and who you are from the inside out.

We must always be cognoscente of how we impact those we encounter.

Be #happy, be #proud for others when they are winning, and lift them up when they are down. #Empower those that can’t seem to find the #potential you so vividly see in them. #Inspire those that are stuck. Role model #strength when people and things come in their path……

Be kind, be #constructive, be just enough tough and gentle to drive #momentum. Light the fire 🔥 within them not under them…..#Lead…….

Independent Mama

Feeling very #accomplished tonight! I always remind myself I’ve already won….. no matter what #blessings come my way…. my goal was to stay #home with my #children and build a home based #business I could call all our own! I did that the day I decided to take the leap and leave my corporate job to be an independent #Avon #Representative

Cruisin’ Like a Mom Boss

 

The road isn’t easy….. but it’s worth it…. I think back on many of my hardest obstacles SO FAR IN LIFE… which I’ve illustrated some in my blog… www.beautifulleapoffaith.com ..now I know I’m only 30 and there is many more to come in my #blessed time here on this earth 🌏 and honestly I look forward to even the hard times…. because what’s come out of each experience good or bad is growth…. I think back on my most #influential moments like giving birth to my two little angels…. Gabriel and Elijah….. was it easy having two babies naturally lol … NO …. but look what I’ve gained. My children are my entire world…. not only did I experience a Love I never imagined I become the best version of myself and now here I am …. on a cruise in Bermuda…. was never in my field of vision…. on a simple decision I made to stay home with my babies I’ve never missed first, first words, or any important milestone with my babies….. that so many unfortunately don’t get to experience….. was it easy? Is it easy? NO …. but it’s worth it! The road to #success isn’t suppose to be easy…. if it was easy there would be no growth…. there would be nothing to work for…

“Do Not Be Anxious About Anything” Philippians 4:6

Hello there!

Thank you for being here.  You will find throughout my blog I share all things that inspire me in my personal life, that translate into my business.  I am extremely moved by scriptural verses, and I use them everyday in my personal and professional life.

Last night I went to an amazing women’s gathering at our church.  In conversation with a great friend, Ellie, I was inspired to share about her favorite verse; Philippians 4:6.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ JesusPhilippians 4:6-7 New International Version (NIV) 

Click here to visit the link I got this verse from.

There are countless times I forget to place my worries and anxieties about the future in God’s hands.  Everyday, I have to remind myself that God is in control, I am not the author, and all will be perfectly OK, just as he has planned, IF I LISTEN.

Especially, as women and mothers it seems we are constantly struggling to trust God, in our constant battle for control.  We try to have control over our children, our families, our homes, our careers, our success, our health, our nutrition, etc…,  and everyone around us too!  Isn’t that exhausting!

However, if you read the verse above, you can find peace.  Peace that we do not have to have all the answers, we are NOT in control, but He is.  Isn’t that great news.  I know it is to me, whether it be in my personal life or in my business.

I had been sharing how some days are very nerve-wracking for me and I feel extremely anxious about what the future holds.  Most of you know my story, how I walked away from a corporate position, to restart my business from zero. If you have not heard my story, PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ MY STORY.

However, God seems to keep reminding me, I am right where I am supposed to be.  How can I go wrong choosing my home based business with my children, over a big title position far away from my family. Time after time, campaign after campaign, day after day I am blessed with new customers, and team members.  Whats-more, I am seeing other women and men empowered daily, to do the same.  What a blessing and gift.

I am sure there are more mothers than just me that have had the worry, “How am I going to pay for this?  How will I get groceries this week!”

God places us in the right places at the right time based on his perfect timing and plan for us, for reasons we cannot see or understand!

As we were all sharing the things that trouble us or burden us daily, the things that are heavy on our hearts, a good friend of mine shared this amazing story that I could relate to completely!

She said, “Carly I have to share this story with you, when I was a young mother about your age, I had the three boys.  My husband was away on business, I had literally no money, and no means to make dinner that night for the boys.  I took my youngest for a walk with me as the other boys were in school.  I can remember worrying the entire time.  All of a sudden my son ran slightly ahead of me and came running back with a $1 bill.  He was so excited, and at that time I knew I could at least get a carton of milk with it.  I was feeling a bit relieved, then a few feet ahead of us we ran into a small bundle of money, it was three $1 bills.  We had found a total of $4.00.  With that I walked to the grocery store, and bought milk, eggs, and bread, we had dinner that night. It wasn’t much, but it was enough to make dinner.”

There is so many times, I have worried myself to sleep wondering “How”, I was going to do this?! Was I crazy?  I gave up our security!  Then I am instantly reminded by Him, I am right were I am supposed to be in life and in business, and we will be OK.

This inspired me, and reminded me of so many situations I had been in with my family.  However, I have found peace in knowing that God has the plan, he has the answers. All is well.

I hope this verse gives you peace, and reminds you, that He is always listening, and all he asks is we believe in him.  Cast your cares on him.  Do not be anxious or worried, instead pray.

Blessings,

Carly ❤
