I am a Marketing Consultant and owner of MarketWorks LLC, a small marketing and brand communications company. I've worked in all aspects of marketing for over 35 years, from retail and performing arts to banking and ski & golf. Network marketing was never part of my career path; I could never get past the "Fuller Brush Man" mindset!
HER APRIORI STORY
In the spring of 2012, my friend, Beverly Sage introduced me to Apriori Beauty. We had reconnected with other college friends on Facebook after 38 years! We immediately bonded even though (besides our love of humor) we are very different from one another. It was Beverly who told me how much she loved this new skin care line and that I had to try it. I had been using a line of quality skin care products for years, and when Beverly called me I was just about to reorder. So I decided to give Apriori Beauty a try figuring I had nothing to lose. I immediately fell in love with the way my skin looked and felt. I was amazed. Without her knowledge, I signed up to be a consultant. I didn't even wait for the tote to come! I started telling my family and friends about it, promising a sample as soon as I received them.
I honestly don't consider what I do selling, nor relate Apriori Beauty to what I think of as network marketing. One thing I do know about myself is that it would be very difficult for me to share anything I didn't love. I love sharing these products with my family and friends; my happiest moments are when they get excited about how they look and feel! I have been known to go a little overboard with the enthusiasm though. Putting an image of my cheek on my introductory email may have been a little much.
GROWTH & ACCOMPLISHMENTS
I've learned so much about myself in this process of sharing Apriori. As a Marketing Consultant, I help my clients create their brand personality, strategies and initiatives are developed based on the brand message. Without consciously doing it, I've created my own brand personality! I've had to overcome some of my own obstacles and step out of my comfort zone.
Apriori Beauty has captured their brand personality as flawlessly as their products. Working in the corporate world has taught me that while management may come and go, the vision and values remain constant. I believe Apriori Beauty exemplifies this perfectly.
My favorite Apriori product? I'd have to say the Celloxylin Créme Cleanse (mixed with the Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub). No wait, the 20x Acid Peel - leaves my face feels like silk. Or possibly the Hydro-Burst Moisture Intense Cleanse? My significant other told me how soft my skin was. Of course, that would have to be followed up by the Hydro-Burst Moisture Intense Lotion. But, there's also the Night Repair 3Deep, which is amazing, and the Lifeoxylin Cellular Defense Elixir always leaves me feeling wonderful. Too many favorites to decide on just one!
