Food for thought. Yesterday morning, I was really tired and about to go out and climb this huge bridge onto Bouchelle Island where I live and I mentioned it to someone who I was texting with. He said “Enjoy, I know you’ll love it”. It was at that moment that it hit me that I didn’t love it at all but I loved how I felt after I did it. It’s that feeling of accomplishment on the way back home after I finally got to a flat road and celebrated that it was almost over. As I was climbing the bridge and trying to breathe I just kept reminding myself of why I was doing this. I want to be healthy and fit and whether I’m climbing the bridge or working out in a gym it’s always the same. I don’t always want to do it and sometimes I don’t but more times than not, I make myself get out there because I keep my focus on the end result of what I want. It’s not easy, but after each workout I celebrate the fact that I did it and feel so proud of myself for making it happen. I used to make excuses about not having enough time to fit exercise into my life or the weather was too cold or too hot to walk etc. It didn’t matter. I always came up with something until I decided that I was willing to pay the price for what I wanted. At that point exercise became a priority and I have spent the last 18 months making it fit and building my schedule around it.
It came to me today that it’s the same in our business. Most of us don’t like working hard every day and doing tasks that are out of our comfort zone or take us away from our families and things we enjoy and I’m no different. BUT, I learned many years ago that in order to create the life that I wanted and now live, I had to be willing to pay the price and prioritize my business and sacrifice for the future. Once again, just like the exercising, it wasn’t easy. In fact, it was really hard most times but I had my end result in mind and I was willing to do whatever it took to create the future I desperately wanted.
I spent most of my life Unhealthy, overweight and dead broke until one day I realized that if I wanted more it was up to me to go after it with a “failure is not an option” attitude. So, I decided exactly what I wanted knowing it would take hard work and sacrifice and I went after it like my life depended on it. IT DID!!!
I invite you to think about your life and ask yourself the question “Am I living my best life?” If not, what are you going to do about it? #LiveIntentionally #NoSurrender #YouGotThis
I just returned from a 3 day trip to the beautiful San Diego and it was absolutely incredible. Today I am thinking about all of the amazing people in my life as a result of the decision I made to become a network marketer. These past few days were filled with laughter, tears, hugs, light bulb moments but most of all relationship building. The beautiful thing about network marketing is that we get to choose our business partners and the people to share our journey. How incredible is that? I look back at all the years I spent in corporate America surrounded by people who I wouldn’t necessarily want to be around but someone else picked them as my co-workers. What an empowering feeling to know that I/we as network marketers get to choose the people to share our journey…
It was my absolute honor to spend these days with driven, committed and passionate people who have figured out that their freedom comes when they are willing to put their dreams above their fears and fight for what they want. At the core of their dream is hope. Hope for a better life. Hope for the freedom to choose to live the way they want to live on their own terms, to the beat of their own drum. I love surrounding myself with people who get it. When that hope and dream begins to swell up inside of you, when you’re starting to hear that voice screaming inside…The one that’s telling you you’re capable of so much more…that the best is yet to come…that it’s time to follow that dream. It’s time to act. We all can do it!!!
We begin by simply allowing the dream to be. We dare to dream and in doing so we give light to that same hope that has sparked so many other wondrous futures. I love being around people who are willing to pay the price to live the life they were put here to live. We each have the power to create our own destiny. We simply have to accept the challenge and, in many cases, be willing to open the gifts that are given to us.
Thank you to all of the amazing people who allowed me to be part of their life these past 4 days. I am forever grateful to know you and have the privilege of sharing your journey. Thank you for the heart felt talks, the hugs and allowing me to live my purpose of empowering you to live your best life…
As I look back over the years prior to my success in Network Marketing, I think about all the things I wish I had been able to do… All the times I wanted to spend time with my family, my friends, or even myself. I feel like I missed out on so much that was important to me all because I had that J.O.B. to report to. Waiting all year to get that 1 or 2 weeks off is just a distant memory to me now but for most people, this is still their reality.
I missed so much and settled for so many years not knowing I had any other options at all. It wasn’t until 1997 when I was 50 years old and dead broke that I was introduced to Network Marketing for the very first time. It was different than anything I knew, totally uncomfortable and FAR outside of my comfort zone. It was however, the first time that I ever realized that there was another way. It was the first time I knew with total clarity that I actually had a choice as to how I earn my income and how I spend my time. What a powerful moment when it hit me that an ordinary person like me could create an extraordinary future for myself and my family just by making a decision to take a different path. Not an easy path, mind you. Most people didn’t get what was so apparent to me. I didn’t want to settle in mediocrity any longer and I chose the amazing industry of Network Marketing as my vehicle to FREEDOM!!!
I am writing this today because I just spent the past 3 days with 2 of my 6 Grand Children during their Spring break and I’m reminded this morning of what a gift it is that I have the freedom to do that. I never want to take this for granted!!! Nor do I want to miss the opportunity to share with you the choice that each of us have to embrace our lives and CHOOSE to live our dreams by creating the future we desire. I made a choice to change and it is my absolute passion to encourage, coach and mentor anyone who is ready to move forward and embrace this amazing journey called life.
Blake and Emerson have gone back home today after a packed 3 days. We ate too much, played too hard and as I sent them on their way, I took a deep breath and thanked God for the beautiful abundant life that I now live. It feels amazing to wake up each day and know that I will do exactly what makes my heart feel good!!! These past 3 days made my heart feel great!!!
They say good things come to those who wait. I say opportunity is a moving target that unless you are chasing it, is pretty hard to hit!!! So stop waiting and start chasing. Ariix is about unleashing your human potential, not about bathing in mediocrity as many do waiting for an opportunity to happen.
Ariix seeks individuals who are aggressive, passionate, and visionaries – those who are willing to take a shot at a moving target!
I spent most of my life in mediocrity knowing I was put here to do more than what I was doing. I just kept waiting for the right opportunity to come along and it never occurred to me that I was the one who needed to go after what I wanted. In 1997 I was tired of waiting and I drew my line in the sand and made a decision to create the rest of my life on my terms. What an empowering feeling to know that the best way to predict my future was to create it. I did just that!!!
There are two types of people in this world…those who make it happen and those who talk about making it happen. Those who “do it” and those who give excuses for “not doing it”. Invariably, the excuse makers are from your typical “employed” mentality while the make-it-happen folks are from the “business building-investor type” mentality or consider themselves entrepreneurs. They are looking for a formula that contains the mechanics of wealth, one that will allow them enough transitional time to make the mental, emotional and physical changes necessary to succeed. These people understand the value of a team and have a clear understanding that the individual can’t do it alone. They realize the power of the right formula to support them in every aspect of their business virtually guaranteeing that if they remain motivated, hard working and committed to the formula, they cannot help but succeed. They realize that while it may take time, their results are in their own hands and that consistent effort will always produce desired results. These are the type of people who join Ariix
The right formula must work for everybody. It must be understood and equally applicable for the average hardworking person. The right formula is non-discriminatory. It has no age or education requirements. The right formula should also allow anyone with a work ethic to get in business with a low startup cost. Success is not and never should be the sole domain of the rich.
I am a perfect example of that. I came from poverty, started my journey at age 50 and had never been involved in the amazing industry of network marketing which I am now so passionate about. There is only one success…to be able to spend your life in your own way. Stop waiting and start chasing!!! Learn More About Ariix

How does a single mother of 2 on government assistance just getting by even with two or three jobs make the leap to financial independence ? Does She:
Nope none of the above apply. The MLM industry provides a much greater chance of success than the lotto, or getting your book published, hell even billionaires are hard to come by these days (they are all taken or dead anyways). Want to go back to school ? Sure ! throw 50K or more into an institution that cares more about enrollment, profits, and endowments, oh and Good luck finding a job as well!
