Can you run a business on a strictly part-time basis? The answer is most certainly ‘YES’ – I am proof of that! Just a year and a half ago I had absolutely no idea what Network Marketing was and discovered the world of online marketing through MLSP just over a year ago. It is an honour and a privilege to be the MLSP member of the month for January. I have many people to thank for getting this far and a story to tell…

5 years ago I was an elementary school teacher expecting twin girls. Up until that point, for the previous 14 years, I had seen children from ‘the other side’! I thought I had a good understanding of young children and that it would be pretty straight-forward to juggle them into my life with my husband Chris. The truth is, that the first year of having 2 newborns enter our household (bearing in mind both sides of the family live across the Atlantic) are pretty much a blur of milk, poop, burping, crying, giggles, smiles, bottles and all the other things that babies bring with them when they enter your life. It was both magical and manic at the same time (yes that is possible!)
So where did that lead me? I quickly realized that going back to teaching, paying for childcare, really didn’t make sense for us as a family. I LOVED and felt privileged to have the opportunity to stay at home with Ellie and Isobel – witnessing all their firsts. Embracing the good and working through the struggles together, as a family. I would be lying if I said there weren’t days when I was jealous of Chris being able to ‘escape’ to work in the morning. I remember occasions when he had to leave me with ‘emergency diaper situations’ or ‘dual screaming fun’, but those occasions were quickly forgotten once the smiles returned.
However, after nearly 3 years of living on 1 salary and the limited adult conversation that bringing up young children as a stay-at-home parent brings, I was ready for a change. Just at that time, I received a phone call from my cousin about a ‘business opportunity’ in which she was newly involved. It seemed ideal as we both had very young children and it would allow us to stay at home with our children while earning an income at the same time. We went through the normal ‘traditional’ marketing procedure – 3 way call – presentation – initial doubt on my part – then absolute certainty and a great deal of excitement! I could see it! Other people were achieving success with this business model and if they could do it – I could do it!!
It didn’t take me long to realize I was not going to get anywhere with my warm list (I have since learned, through MLSP, I was approaching them all the wrong way). After trying several other ‘paths’, I was getting increasingly frustrated with my results – zero! There are only so many times you can be on the phone with someone who is obviously not interested, while trying to comfort your screaming 3 year old at the same time! I sat down at my computer and typed in the name of the company I was with at the time, desperate to discover some ‘other way’. I was sure there must be an alternative approach out there and it turns out I was right!
Lucky for me, up sprung my now mentor and friend Justice Eagan – talking about a magical strategy called ‘attraction marketing’ and pointing down to a link which I just had to click on to find out more… that is when I discovered online marketing and MLSP. As they say… the rest is history!
Thank you Justice for all your help over the past year and thank you Brian, Todd, Norbert, Roxana and the entire MLSP team for everything you have created and provided here! MLSP is an amazing community. It is dynamic and constantly evolving. It has taught me how to attract people to me through attraction marketing techniques and provided me with so many of the necessary resources, tools and training to do so. Thank you to all the incredible leaders within the community who always step up to the mark and literally deliver the goods with their training. Nothing is held back in this community… everyone wants to help others succeed as much as they want success themselves.
If I can build a list, sign up members to MLSP, grow my MLM team, and train others to be able to do the same – as someone who had no idea any of this existed before stumbling upon Justice and his video, then believe me, YOU CAN TOO! At present, I have very limited time to devote to my marketing, really just 2 or 3 hours per day. So what is the key? Simple – get in, get busy, embrace the system and the knowledge of the people inside it – BELIEVE IN YOURSELF – and make 2014 your year for success!
