"After graduating from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a BBA in Finance, I started a career in retail buying. I loved living in Boston and working for a company that was part of the one of the largest retail chains in the country. I always imagined that I would be there forever! A couple of years later, I married my college sweetheart, and before we knew it, we were parents. I was determined to go back to work and prove to myself that I could have a successful career and be an incredible Mom. For several years, I was able to do both, but really felt I was missing out on being with my children every day. We made the decision that I would stay home with my young children, and I left my retail career.
"Soon after, I became a consultant with a direct sales company. It was a fun way to earn some extra income while supporting my love of scrapbooking. I did not realize it at the time, but this experience taught me how empowering network marketing can be for the Mom who wants to earn some extra income, and grow a successful home-based business. I was later introduced to another network marketing company that seemed to have everything I was looking for. I learned so much from my five years there, and enjoyed all of the benefits and the products. However, with changes in the company and a decline in my own business and income, it was no longer a fit for me and my family.
"My family had become dependent on a second income, and I made the decision to go back to my retail career. I was fortunate enough to find a great position with one of the best department store companies in the US. I worked hard, made an incredible income, and achieved results that were the top in the company. But, as so many of us know, being a full-time working mom in the corporate world leaves little time for family or for ourselves. I learned a lot about myself during these couple of years, and what I want for my life. I learned that working and getting paid is important! Not just to pay your bills, but to feel as if the time we spend working is worth what we are earning. I wanted to work, but I missed my family. I started to look for another opportunity that would allow me the flexibility to continue to work from home, earn a great income, and allow me to spend quality time with my kids. My past experience was telling me the answer was still network marketing.
"I knew I needed to make a change. My last day working my corporate retail job was almost exactly 19 years since my first day working in the buying offices in Boston. I do look back on all these years with pride at what I accomplished in my career, but I know I have much more to look forward to with Apriori Beauty!"
HER APRIORI STORY:
"I have to admit, I had been following Apriori Beauty online. I would Google every once in a while, just to see if something new would pop up on my screen. Then, one day, it did. I saw a new landing page for Apriori Beauty. There was not much more than that, and I tucked it away in the back of my mind. Then, one day, I saw online that they were all coming to Boston for an Apriori Beauty Opportunity Event. I immediately called my husband, and said to him, "if there are less than 20 Consultants in that room, I am doing this!" I had not even tried the products yet, but just had an instinct that this was going to be great! I was standing in the ladies room in the hotel, and for some reason, was so nervous to go into that room. I guess I was just wondering if I really had it in me to build another business all over again. Then I met Kim Kearns and Cathi Almquist and saw they were committed to building a business for a company they truly believed in. I realized I could do it, too. I am forever grateful.
"My skin has truly never, ever looked better since I began using Apriori Beauty's products about one year ago. What I have found is the products are selling themselves. Apriori Beauty is a company built on integrity and a solid compensation plan. Every Consultant who shares this opportunity can look a woman directly in her eyes, and tell her that she CAN earn an income as a Consultant, simply sharing the products and earning a retail income. If you want to do more, and build a team, then you can earn additional income with the power bonuses, and the Manager and Director bonuses. I LOVE that Apriori Beauty is not a title driven company, and really values and lifts up the Consultants at all levels. The environment is one where we are all succeeding together.
"Being a part of a new company is so exciting. My excitement and passion is attracting new Clients, new Consultants, and creating a solid income for my family. Friends that never even wanted to try my products in my previous company are now calling me and asking me for samples. Everyone who tries the products loves the products! Our samples and our website make it so easy for Consultants to build a business, and not have to carry inventory or spend a lot of money to start a business. Apriori Beauty created a compensation plan and a company that rewards everyone who works hard. My office is all on my computer and in my Apriori Beauty bag. Anyone that wants to earn extra income can do it with this company. Apriori Beauty has the best products, the best leadership team, and the best compensation plan. It is simply the best network marketing company. We have it all!
"My husband, my children, and my family inspire me with their constant support, love, encouragement, and belief in me. I am inspired by the women I have met in Apriori Beauty who have had the confidence and belief in themselves to build a business with Apriori Beauty. So many of them have done this before, and believe this is the right place to be to start over and do it again. Their desire to help others achieve success inspires me to do the same. I want to thank Apriori Beauty for creating this company, and for giving us the opportunity to be a part of a company that is committed to integrity and honesty."
HER FAVORITE PRODUCT:
"I love the entire Celloxylin line! The Firming Complex is my favorite product. I love the shimmery look and the silky feel of it. Most importantly, I love that the imperfections I once had in my skin are gone, and I know it is from this incredible product. Amazing results!"
