We hear that we must be authentic to do well in business but also to attract positive, authentic, inspiring and empowering women into our lives. So, on a personal note, we must come to grips with who we are “being” versus who we want to be. Then, we become the woman we’ve dreamed of being. The one we would fall in love with ourselves. And then, we begin to attract the same type of positive woman to us for friendship and business.

Like me, you may have chased after the “in crowd” in school or business. And like me, you may have realized a couple things:

They were not that great when we caught up to them. Some were quite phony and certainly not their authentic selves at all. They were just playing the part of the person they wish they were.

You didn’t really fit in with them and weren’t happy there after all the chasing. This is because you went after them instead of attracting them. Like me, you were probably attracting a different type person to your life and wanted an “upgrade.”

I learned in the ninth grade that I had to change to get new friends. Now we hear this same idea termed authentic. When I became who I really wanted to be all by myself, I attracted really good friends who were like me and I felt comfortable around them. Some of them made me stretch and expand my comfort zone and that made me grow a lot more.

Later, in my various careers, I’ve had to realize, remember and readjust ME again to attract the people I wanted in my life.

Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of becoming the most incredible, helpful, strong, confident woman I’ve ever been. And I have developed friendships and business associations with the most incredible women I’ve ever known in my life!

I wanted to share this with you as soon as I realized what had happened so that if you want to get there, are half way there or haven’t realized the key to having the excellent friends you want, you could see that I’ve been where you are and can offer direction from achieving my dream of having positive, supportive, empowering and inspiring women in my life today.

My launch into the network marketing arena was under the guidance of the legendary Bob Schmidt; cousin, friend, coach and mentor.  When he approached me with XanGo Bob’s words were:  “if you are coachable, consistent, and don’t quit, I guarantee the outcome of your efforts will be different than they have been in the working world you’ve lived in.

I trusted Bob, became his business partner, and have never looked back.  Fortunate that I had him as my mentor for 5 years before his untimely death, Bob left me with a burning drive to help others see what he taught me to see…..the choice to achieve, and be more than we have been taught to believe.

With a team of over 130,000 distributors, spanning 34 countries, my life has changed over the last 7 years and it is my goal to continue to help others reach the pinnacle of their dreams. 

My life living in a “corporate” world was a marvelous season of my life.  The education I received, coupled with owning my own small business, prepared me for the words….”a different outcome with less time and effort”.

With 2 grown children in a XanGo business of their own, it is a joy to know that they are creating time and financial freedom for their families.

I want the message to all to be clear, “You too, can create the peace that comes with knowing your family can have a life of abundance.”

I can’t sing, I can’t dance, and I can’t act…..so royalty income was out of the question for me, along with most of the population. But today, I have true residual income and that is something I can teach anyone to have.

A heart for others and a desire to be different can be the beginning of a new life for you.  I will share the rest of the formula with you.
