With a BS in business, Libby has a diverse background that started in the Opthalmic field as an Associated Product Manager and later lead to starting two businesses, one in network marketing and the other in design/event planning. A 14-year veteran in network marketing with a Swiss skincare company, Libby was intrigued to get involved with Apriori Beauty because of "the simplicity of the business, and the positive results from the products."
HER APRIORI STORY:
"I have always loved the network marketing industry, because it's a win-win for everyone," said Libby. "Last year I completed chemotherapy and found my skin had taken a toll. I loved how hydrated my skin became after using the Apriori Beauty products. I loved my previous company, yet the simplicity of Apriori Beauty was SO inviting. I wasn't looking for a new business; it found me!
"I love being a part of Apriori Beauty because I can enjoy the products with no strings attached. Some people just want to be Clients and that's okay by me! On the business side, I can have fun earning a living without being tied to a job. Apriori Beauty allows me to meet new people and give them a key to a better, healthier, more prosperous lifestyle — whatever that may be for them. This business also allows me to have time to do the things I love to do, as opposed to administrative or tedious tasks.
"Apriori Beauty allows me to develop my leadership skills and learn; create more balance in my life; and connect more closely with people. Truthfully, I wasn't always a people person. In the corporate world, I found I was a great 'task' person. Check it off and it was done. I had not cultivated the relationship part of my life. With network marketing, if I don't get the people part right, I don't succeed — and neither do they. At the end of the day, it's the people who matter, not the checklist.
"Words that best describe me are optimistic, grateful, faithful, creative and fun! Something people may not know about me is that I once super glued my fingers together on both hands the night before my wedding, with no one home! I was trying to put fake nails on and, well, it didn't work! I can also be shy. As a child, I moved LOTS of times and went to sixteen different schools from 1st to 12th grade. I was always 'the new girl' and rarely had many friends or people to eat lunch with. As I grew up, I found one of my gifts to be hospitality. I love helping 'new' people feel comfortable, whether it is in my home, a business, a neighborhood or a new job. I guess that's why they made me a Greeter at church!
"I enjoy photojournalism and creative things, but I'm not 'crafty.' I have friends who are good with crafts — I guess sometimes it's just who you know! I love to travel for pleasure, I'm in two book clubs, a MasterMind for personal development. I love great restaurants, fitness, entertaining, shopping for shoes and philanthropy. I've been married (this time!) for 30 years to Bill and have two sons, 23 & 17, a Labrador retriever and a Bearded Dragon lizard. Hmm, maybe I should try some of that night cream on the lizard?
"Christ inspires me because He is the center of my life and he's the best 'people person' I know. I feel beautiful just being alive! If I'm ever not feeling positive, I surround myself with people who are. I think I make other people feel beautiful by being attentive to them, caring about them, being sincere and looking them in the eye. I enjoy making them feel important and of great value — because they are! I often feel we can breeze through life and not stop to acknowledge others around us. The woman who cleans my house is not any less important than the woman on a magazine cover.
"I am very proud of my team and the 11 women who personally joined in helping me create it. I love working with them, to teach and train. They are an integral part of building my business and I appreciate all of their hard work, enthusiasm and courage!
HER FAVORITE PRODUCT:
"Hmmm, that's like asking me to choose which child I like best. It depends on the day! Seriously, I think it would be the Celloxylin Hydro-Burst Moisture Intense Cleanse because of it's versatility. I can wash my body, my hair and even shave my legs — all with one fabulous product!"
