A personal message from Co-Founder Janis:

“It’s hard.”

“I can’t get any people to visit my site”

“I can’t people to join my business.”

“This just isn’t for me.”

“I don’t have the time.”

“I didn’t  know how difficult it would be.”

Well, I am a single Mom of three who, before starting my own homebased business, held down two jobs. I would get up at 4:00 in the morning and not get to bed until midnight most nights, after returning from my part-time retail job, packing lunches, checking homework and relieving my mother, who helped out with the kids.

That, my friends, is difficult.

It is difficult always having to lower your dreams to meet your means. It is difficult to miss your son’s football game because you have to work. It is difficult knowing the rust bucket you call a car is eating you alive in maintenance, but you can’t afford a new one. It is difficult to realize that someone else is going to watch your daughter take her first step or have your son say mama to the preschool teacher.

It is difficult knowing that you have spent 40 years of your life working for someone else, only to realize that you will be retiring on one-third of what you can live on today. Or, worse yet, it is difficult knowing that you have diligently worked all your life, only to be given an early retirement and replaced by someone younger, more capable.

I will tell you what’s difficult–waking up in the morning and realizing that your children, the most precious things imaginable, no longer need bottles, diapers, have tea parties, or are shorter than the baseball bat they are trying to swing. It is difficult realizing it is too late and that the time frittered away can never be retrieved. It slips through our fingers one second at a time.

It is also difficult watching the spark in your partner’s eyes fade because both of you realize the house you have been wanting is just a dream because someone else is controlling your finances.

We have nasty habits about rationalizing, procrastination and skirting important things, rather than facing the issues. Too often we allow others who do not pay our bills, who do not share our dreams, to direct our futures.

As children we have absolutely no freedom; we rebel in our teens and scream for freedom. We reach adulthood and are finally free, only to relinquish that freedom because we think it is too difficult. We do not want to take responsibility. We do not want to make a wrong decision, so we obligingly give that awesome power to someone else. We wake up too late. We hear ourselves uttering phrases like: “I wish I had only . . .” and “If I could do it over again.”

You have no one but yourself to blame. You had the chance. Perhaps the opportunity was presented many times and each time you elevated the trivial to a higher priority than yourself.

Let me ask you: Is building our business really difficult?

Is it so traumatic to show someone an exciting product or idea? Is it so difficult to understand that if you work your business consistenly, you just might finally be able to send your children to a college chosen by excellence, rather than one chosen by price?

Would you work really hard for eight to ten years, so you could mold a lifestyle of your choosing, so your family could live a lifestyle of their dreams, rather than trying to live how someone else thinks you should live?

How difficult is it to pick up the phone and call your prospect? How difficult is it to place ads? How difficult is it, really, to share what you love with others? Think about it.

Realize the awesome power you have in your hands by owning your own business. There are people out there working three jobs. There are people drowning in debt; or agonizing through bankruptcy, realizing they only needed a couple hundred more dollars per month. That is difficult!

This business you have chosen has the ability to change lives. Your business cannot do anything. But YOU can change lives with it. You are the one with the life-changing ability. What are you waiting for?

There is difficulty and pain in success, and there is difficulty and pain in failure. Difficulty and pain in success will last a short period of time; but pain in failure lasts a lifetime. Which one is really more difficult?

You will pay a price for your actions, and your choices.

Which choice will you make?

Preach Janis! Preach!

 As you are building your gifting business, you will go thru ups and downs (this is very natural).  Don’t get frustrated, Get excited that you can  make as much income as you like and you are the boss. 

Before you start, we want you to know that this business will not make you rich overnight, but it can produce an incredible about of money for you and your family.  This is your business and you are the CEO of your company.  Nobody is going to take this away from you nor downsize you.  So be proud of your business.

Below are some simple rules to follow if you truly want to succeed.

#1   Set weekly goals,  make  the time  to work the business and be  consistent and patient.  Yes, success will happen but not overnight.  This is a real business and not a get rich quick scheme.   If you would open a store, you are not going to have customers running to your store right away.  Building a customer does take time to build.   The best part of this business is that you can generate two incomes.  You can work on the referral program as you are building your customer base. 

Always remember to put yourself on a schedule and stick to the schedule no matter what.   I  promise you that  if you are  consistent, you will succeed and at the end, you will look back and be so glad you built this business oppose to regretting.
 
#2    Know your “why”  Why are you in this business and what are you fighting for?   For example, some of our consultants are fighting for  financial freedom.  They don’t want to spend  40 years of  their life working for someone else, only to realize that they will be retiring on one-third of what they  can live on today. Or, worse yet,  knowing that they have diligently worked all their lives, only to be given an early retirement and replaced by someone younger, more capable.

Some of our consultants are fighting for their  family.  They are building this business for them and  their family.  They don’t want to wake up one morning and realizing that their children, the most precious things imaginable, no longer need bottles, diapers, have tea parties, or are shorter than the baseball bat they are trying to swing.  Or,  realizing it is too late and that the time frittered away can never be retrieved.

Some consultants are fighting for financial freedom.  They are working this business because they are tired of watching their  husbands work hard and they are still not getting ahead.  They realize that they  are never going to have the freedom and income they deserve if they keep on working for other people.  This is why many consultants are  taking control of their  lives and their  finances. They no longer hope, wish and dream for the government or the president to take care of their family.

Yes, we do realize that we all have some habits such as  rationalizing, procrastination and skirting important things, rather than facing the issues. Too often we allow others who do not pay our bills, who do not share our dreams, to direct our futures.

As children we have absolutely no freedom; we rebel in our teens and scream for freedom. We reach adulthood and are finally free, only to relinquish that freedom because we think it is too difficult to go after our dreams. We do not want to take responsibility. We do not want to make a wrong decision, so we obligingly give that awesome power to someone else. We wake up too late. We hear ourselves uttering phrases like: “I wish I had only . . .” and “If I could do it over again.”

You have no one but yourself to blame. You had the chance. Perhaps the opportunity was presented many times and each time you elevated the trivial to a higher priority than yourself.

Let me ask you: Is sending emails to prospective clients  or sharing our gifts with people difficult to do?  Is sharing this career with others is difficult?

Is it so traumatic to show someone an exciting product ? Is it so difficult to understand that if you work this business, you will have a great  loyal client base that will keep ordering from you and send you referrals?  

Would you work really hard for several years, so you could mold a lifestyle of your choosing, so your family could live a lifestyle of their dreams, rather than trying to live how someone else thinks you should live?

How difficult is it to pick up the phone and call a perspective client?   How difficult is it to place ads? How difficult is it, really, to share what you love with others? Think about it.

Realize the awesome power you have in your hands with this business. There are people out there working three jobs. There are people drowning in debt; or agonizing through bankruptcy, realizing they only needed a couple hundred more dollars per month. That is difficult!

This business you have chosen has the ability to change  your life.
What are you waiting for?

There is difficulty and pain in success, and there is difficulty and pain in failure. Difficulty and pain in success will last a short period of time; but pain in failure lasts a lifetime. Which one is really more difficult?

You will pay a price for your actions, and your choices.

Which choice will you make?
