Here is the first guest post in my Direct Sales Series for 2015. This is a great way to find out alternative ways to make money while staying home. Enjoy!
Hi there! My name is Melissa Summerlin @mleesummerlin and I am a distributor with It Works Global! My story is a !little different than most:) I’m a former teacher turned stay at home mom to 3 little girls. Being at home, I always looked for a way that I could contribute to our family finances…something to help pay for the kid’s clothes, activities and an occasional vacation. A little over 4 years ago, there was a girl at my church who had signed up with It Works and she was doing really well with it. I always wondered if it was something I could do. I watched her post for months, curious about both the products and the business, but she never knew I was interested. Time and time again I talked myself out of becoming a distributor. I had been a part of 2 other mlm companies with no success and I didn’t feel like this would be any different.
One day I got a Facebook message from her asking if I would be interested in being her part time assistant. I was so excited to have finally found a way to make a little extra income! I worked for her and a couple of other It Works leaders for several months and began to understand a little bit about the business. I couldn’t believe the incredible potential there seemed to be with this company. It wasn’t just one or two people making money…there were so many doing well across the entire company. Time went by and one afternoon I got a call from my sister saying she had joined. She too had tried other mlm companies and so I really didn’t know how it was going to go:) A month later, she hit the rank of Diamond, earned a 10k bonus and was averaging around 2k per month. After seeing her quick success, I decided to try for myself!
I joined the company July 2, 2013. I’m fairly reserved and not from the town I live in so I felt the odds were stacked against me, but I decided to just go for it! I formed a strong team and we all work together to reach our goals. The support within our team is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in an mlm company and the company itself offers so many incentives for its distributors to find success! Three months in, I hit the rank of Diamond, earned a $10,000 bonus and was averaging $2,000 a month. My checks continued to steadily increase and by June of 2013, I hit the rank of Double Diamond, earned a $15,000 bonus and averaged around $6,000 per month. Never in my wildest dreams did I think something like this could be possible, but so many from my team were doing just as well or better than me! Fast Forward to today and I am just shy of promoting to Triple Diamond, earning a $50,000 bonus and averaging $10,000 per month!
The products are incredible and easy to sell. We have all natural skin care, supplements, weight loss aids and our signature body wraps that are nothing short of amazing! The people I get to work with on a daily basis are so incredibly encouraging as well. The friendships I have made, the freedom and breathing room it has given my family and the fun I have had doing it are such a blessing! I’m so thankful that God kept setting this opportunity in front of me. Had He not, I would have missed out on this incredible journey!
If you are at all interested in finding out more about joining me, I would encourage you to reach out and find out more. There’s no obligation to join, but it doesn’t hurt to listen in and find out if It Works could be a good fit for you! We have amazing bonuses right now to help you get out of debt and live a life you could never have imagined. I’m a part of a team that will hold your hand every step of the way and I would love to talk to you about joining us on this journey! @mleesummerlin http://melissasummerlin.myitworks. com
