“A cookie-cutter approach to this business wouldn’t be rewarding.”
I love having a business that can be customized to anyone’s needs and lifestyle. I was raised in rural Nebraska and appreciate the value of community I learned from being a small town girl. When I joined Apriori Beauty as an Independent Consultant, I had just moved to Arizona and knew only one person in the state. I learned I couldn’t build the business I wanted by picking up the phone and blindly making cold calls – I tried that. Instead, I found several local organizations and became involved in my new community by attending meetings, volunteering, and even hosting events. What happened first was friends were made, not just business leads. Apriori Beauty may have been the motivation for joining several groups, but I am happy to say that quickly changed. Friends supported my business early on with Client and business referrals and I did the same for their business. My Apriori Beauty team was soon quickly growing.
The more experienced I became at networking, the more I saw that people were attending networking events in hopes of gaining new business right then and there; however, that’s rarely the case. Rather than going in with the intention of conducting business at the event, the goal should be to meet two or three new people and spend your time getting to know them. Make it a point to establish a reason to follow-up, and make sure you have their contact information so you can begin the relationship. Any future business will probably come from a referral – someone they know who might love our products or business opportunity. I encourage everyone to get off the computer, go outside and into the real world, and act on the chances presented to meet new people. This business will challenge, push and stretch you. Embrace that and you will see your Apriori Beauty business develop.
It is important to remember there is a balance to what we do: helping people address their skin concerns while discussing the business opportunity when there is interest. Apriori Beauty has raised the bar in the network marketing industry. This is not a Company based on high-pressure pitches where only a few individuals have a true opportunity to create personal success. Apriori Beauty’s Owners Susan Twellman and Elizabeth Vervynck have created a unique and healthy product line, and have paired it with a business model and compensation plan that supports everyone. My team focuses on training to the $300-$500 a month additional income. It’s realistic and an achievable amount to earn within just the first two levels of the Compensation Plan. If someone is interested in building a larger business, it can be attained from just increasing the same activity it takes to reach the $300-$500 goal.
I’m having a blast! The products are warmly received and the results make Clients very happy! I love working with my team and seeing their confidence grow as they build their business. I am so fortunate to count the founders of Apriori Beauty as personal friends whose strong commitment and passion for helping so many individuals is something I greatly respect and admire.
