Wow… What an honor to be selected as member of the month for May 2017.
Have I ever dreamed of being the member of the month in the MLSP community? Are you kidding me? Of course, I have! I aimed for that back in February. It didn't happen in February, but that didn’t stop me; instead it lit a fire under me. Thanks Brian and Norbert for this acknowledgment, and the coaches: Erin Birch and Todd Getts for your guidance.
It was late at night, and my kids finally went to bed. Now I am all alone, I can actually go to my room and cry. That was me in July of 2016, a month after my divorce was finalized. I promised my kids that nothing would change. We wouldn’t need to move out of our house and I will not put them in daycare. I have already been struggling for the past couple years without a job. I put my heart and soul into building my MLM business (4 different MLM businesses to be exact). I was told to give up and get a job by my then husband. As I was sobbing, I said to myself “who are you kidding about building a business from home? Forget it, those will never work. Get real and get a job.”
I was at the point where I had pretty much given up. Who was I kidding?
I decided to take some time out for myself to regroup and really think about my future. So I spent the weekend with my best friend, Renee at her lake house. Renee shared with me about what she had just learned from Ray Higdon’s Mastermind Program. She was so excited and explained this thing called attraction marketing. I didn’t say much as I was still contemplating my future and feeling down on myself. It turns out that was the weekend that changed my life forever!
I began my own research, and found so many success stories about ordinary people building successful online businesses. I started following more and more leaders on Facebook and watched what they were doing. I finally realized that this was exactly what I needed to be successful! After a month of research I went back to my friend and told her “Renee, this is it. This is MY PLAN, and there is no plan B for me.”
I became a MLSP member at the end of August, and I told myself, “You are not going to make any money the first few months, because you have to learn.” I dove into my MLSP back office, watched webinars, listened to wake up calls, watched all of those video tutorials, and started to implement some of the stuff. I was just a little addicted to MLSP. I was up till 2am every night, just watching webinar trainings, Facebook Lives, etc… Finally, something just hit me. If I want to be successful, I need to change my mindset. I am worthy, and to be successful I need to invest in myself. It was a huge commitment financially but I knew I needed to invest in the coaching program. Never looking back I learned from the best of the best. I reached L1 after 3 months inside this community, I was excited and nothing was going to stop me.
I partnered up with my kids and let them know about my goals and plans. This has become our business we decided when my “Who is Awesome” mug arrived from MLSP.
To be honest, I still had those moments when I felt as though I was not good enough. I was someone who could not look at myself in the mirror for more than 2 minutes. I was that person who didn’t like taking pictures and who couldn’t even make a video.
However this all changed at the 2 day intensive workshop training with Brian, Norbert and other top leaders. At the end of this event I remember our last conversation and the advice they gave me, “If you don’t have the cash flow, then take massive action.” I did just that and I haven't turned back.
I came home and it was now or never! I implemented what I learned right away. I created and hosted 3 of my own webinars, and created my very own lead magnet. I was soon invited to give a workshop training on Instagram which is taking place in June. I have been asked to teach a social media class for the small business center at the local college where I live. I am also coordinating a speaking engagement for a group of local realtors on how to brand and market themselves effectively. All of these while building and coaching my personal sponsor member for my primary business and my MLSP team.
It has been about 9 months that I made the decision to become a member of MLSP, and I have become very confident what I teach and who I have become.
Education and teaching others is my passion, I am very grateful that I am now in a position where I can help others to grow and that I can incorporate what I love to do into my own business.
It’s the greatest feeling when I hear someone tell me how much they loved my trainings, or how much they appreciate my mentorship. It is incredibly rewarding to have the ability to help others marry their passion with their business, so that what they do will never feel like work again.
So, who am I? My name is Candace Bui-Walston, a Chinese immigrant who came to U.S. at age of 18 and didn’t speak any English. I quit my 6-figure income job as an assistant principal in a high school, so I could stay home to brush my daughter’s hair before she goes to school. A single mother just wanting to keep her promise to her kids. I am a stubborn daughter who lives by the quote that “Instead of giving myself a reason why I can’t, I give myself a reason why I can.”
I love what I do, and my passion is to empower parents to create a life of absolute freedom through online marketing, so all children could have their parents back home.
Thanks for taking time out to read my story. From one MLSP member to another, I would advise you to stay close to the community, believe in yourself, and take action like me.
