Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Before we dive in, our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit better. Can you tell us a bit about your ‘backstory’ and what brought you to this particular career path.
I grew up in central California in a town called San Luis Obispo. I moved to San Diego to attend SDSU and graduated with a marketing degree. I have always been an entrepreneur by heart and started many businesses since college. I eventually went into real estate and financial planning, but then went back to school and earned an MBA hoping to continue my path towards owning my own business. I had success in real estate, but I found myself not passionate or fulfilled over the years.
I was looking for other opportunities and came across a nutrition and skincare network marketing company. The business model intrigued me, and since I have always been passionate about nutrition and a holistic approach to health, I jumped in and started my business in April 2013. I started as a team of one and over the last eight years, I have coached thousands of people to live a better life, and thousands more to grow their businesses and find their passion. I took my passion for business coaching a step further when I co-developed a day-by-day business guide for network marketers, titled 90 Day Cycle to New Habits Journal under a brand called 90 Day Habits.
The most exciting part of 90 Day habits is that I can take my lessons learned and expertise and help even more people grow their businesses than just those in my network.
Can you share your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Why does that resonate with you so much?
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” This is my favorite quote because my success and a lot of those successful around me have gotten to where we / they are because of collaboration, coaching, sharing ideas and support. We all benefit from this collaboration, and it has been the key to our success.
An easy-to-remember phrase that supports this concept is “you are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” If you surround yourself with business builders, positive out lookers and natural cheerleaders, you’re automatically setting yourself up for success.
What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now? How do you think that might help people?
The team at 90 Day Habits and I are launching a new brand and a few products around creating good, strong, business building habits. These habits include everything from positive affirmations, morning routines, planning your business days, weeks and months with milestones, goals and activities.
This is going to coach people to have direction and purpose for their days. What I’ve learned through business coaching is that everyone has a goal, everyone knows they have to work hard — and they’re excited! — but they struggle with what to do daily to help their business grow.
These new products will build on the current 90 Day Habits Journal to help network marketers get even more organized, improve their mindset and guide them in what to do daily to grow their businesses.
