Modern Golden Girls

A happy ending story

I knew my sweet friend looked way younger than her years, but I hadn’t seen her for 6 months or so when we went on a trip together. She looked so young and radiant, I had to ask – “What’s your secret, girlfriend?”

She told me it was ‘pantyhose for her face’, and we both laughed, but her skin was so radiant and smooth, I just had to have her get me some immediately! A week later, I received my package in the mail and learned more about not only this amazing serum and complementary products, but also how to look younger from the inside out! I was hooked, and I started on my own journey to look and feel younger and vibrant.

That was my first experience with her company. While I came to love the products, I was content building a business at a different company and had no interest in making the switch. Over time, I saw what this company and the Referral Marketers were building. The unique compensation plan includes a patented model to generously compensate distributors who are brand new as well as experienced networkers! In fact, the start-up bonus program is actually over the top!

She invited me to travel to her company and see for myself. I was impressed, and knew I had to make the move. One tool especially intrigued me. I was in a meeting with my friend and the owner/CEO of the company, when she asked me about my current company. I shared what I thought were pretty good stats, then she did some calculations and showed me what I would be making with this company – and the same number of reps. I was floored and made the switch.

Fast forward 10 years (yes, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary this next year) and after what we have experienced world-wide in 2020 and 2021, more and more people are paying attention to their health and the consequences of our western habits. I learned how every product this company sells has scientific data backing it up – and how we have science beyond testimonials that are shaking up the health and wellness industry.

This industry allowed me to trade in my salary for true financial and time freedom. Even though I was a network marketer, I was hustling to earn a leveraged paycheck that was slowly growing, but took so much time. There were constant parties, workshops, and hundreds of hours on the phone.

Since coming on board with this company, I don’t do those things anymore. We build differently using referral marketing and a duplicatable system, unlike anything I’ve ever seen! I finally have my life back. I can spend more time on my hobbies, travel, and be there for my friends and family.

“And it doesn’t matter whether you want to do this full time, or casually share the products with friends. I’ve seen people succeed by gaining customers and getting people excited for our results-driven products.”

I’m so grateful to this industry and this company for not only helping me find success, but my team as well. They are creating a leveraged income for them and their families and becoming better versions of themselves every day.

“I’ve come to learn that life is way too short to be working for someone else’s dreams. We have to get out there and live our best lives; This industry helps us do that.”

At the Table

For a couple of years now I start my morning with a short reading from the book by Shauna Niequist – Savor – Living abundantly where you are, as you are. It’s a delightful one-page read that I find satisfying and comforting – even when I skip a day or 20, I just go to today’s message and am inspired.

November is a month of gratitude, gathering, good food, and guests, so today’s read was more than appropriate. It’s called “At The Table”. The reading starts with a short bible verse followed by Shauna’s musings that she was inspired to write.

I always love these short little positive starts to my day – not too churchy, it seems like I’m sitting with a good friend who is telling me a story.

“Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found.’ So they begin to celebrate.”

~ Luke 15:23 – 24

This familiar verse shows the true love of a family. We welcome errant children back home and celebrate their return. We gather around a feast. A lot of us will do that later this month. We invite our loved ones back no matter their faults – the cranky uncle, the brother-in-law who always tries to dazzle us with his brilliance, but we know it’s bulls**t, the niece who has a lot of growing up to do. It doesn’t matter – they are family and we take care of everyone.

Enjoy this warm, gathering month. Make sure to prepare a dish, however simple, and invite in those you love. Those that are family.

The most sacred moments, the ones in which I feel God’s presence most profoundly, when I feel the goodness of the world most arrestingly, take place at the table. The particular alchemy of celebration and food, of connecting people and serving what I’ve made with my own hands comes together as more than the sum of their parts. I love the sounds and smells and textures of life at the table, hands passing bowls and forks clinking against plates and bread being torn and the rhythm and energy of feeding and being fed.

It’s not strictly about the food for me. It’s about what happens when we come together, slow down, open our homes, look into one another’s faces, listen to one another’s stories. It happens when we celebrate a birthday, and also when we break out of the normal clockwork of daily life and pop the champagne on a cold, gray Wednesday just because the faces we love are gathered around our table. It happens when we enter the joy and the sorrow of the people we love and we join together at the table to feed one another and be fed, and while it’s not strictly about the food, it doesn’t happen without it. Food is the starting point, the common ground, the thing to hold and handle, the currency we offer to one another.

When was the last time you felt nourished and seen and known around the table?
