I fell in love with safe and healthy skincare at a house party when I was 28. It was my birthday and determined not to age, I treated myself to a skincare set and committed to using it every day and evening. I immediately noticed that this skincare was different from the expensive department skincare I was used to buying. My skin was improving and felt better. I began to research and realized that just because a product is sold by a high-end retailer, doesn’t always mean it’s better. As a teacher, it was second nature to continue learning about the products my family and I were putting on our face and body. As I began to research and find out more, I started sharing with those around me and introducing them to a skincare line that would help, not harm their skin. Slowly, my business began growing and within a few years, I went from teaching kids about reading and writing to teaching women about safe and effective skincare.
As time went on, I became disenchanted with my first skincare company and made the decision to seek out a new skincare line. I loved Network Marketing; it allowed me to meet and build relationships with various people that I otherwise wouldn’t have come across. Sharing was in my blood, but I needed to be sharing products I truly believed in. A friend of mine was part of a new skincare company called Apriori Beauty, so I gave it a try, sampling their Celloxylin® Cellular Age Advantage line. After trying out the first four (out of six) products, I was sold! I couldn’t stop looking at my skin – there was something different about it. Once you know something is better, you can’t go back, which is why I became an Apriori Beauty Consultant in early 2011.
One thing I’ve learned is to never quit. There have been times of frustration where efforts I’ve put into my business have not produced results. Instead of throwing in the towel, I move on and try a different approach. Growing and maintaining a sustainable business takes time and dedication. The key is to find like-minded men and women to join your business. Without these women by my side, I would not be where I am today, and neither would my Apriori Beauty business. I love working with my team, supporting them, encouraging them, and watching them blossom into amazing, hard-working business women. My team is comprised of women of all ages. Women who are my go-to gal pals, my rocks, and advisors. You can’t succeed in this business without the help of others. Growing your business is a team effort because without the support of your Consultants and Clients, you have no business. Plus, the experience is so much more gratifying when you have others there to enjoy it with you. There will be times where you need advice and then there will be times when others are in need of your help. This business is a give-and-take type of relationship and the more available you make yourself to your team, the more support you’ll receive from them.
Coming up on my 4-year anniversary with Apriori Beauty, I rejoice every day that I stayed the course. A Company run by the most integrity-filled women, Susan Twellman and Elizabeth Vervynck’s passion for the products is as strong as their commitment to the Consultants! Both women are consistently giving us the tools we need to grow our business and put products on everyone’s bathroom counters across the nation. Because of them, I’m able to continue working and growing my Apriori Beauty business alongside classy, strong and loving women. Thank you Apriori Beauty for being the blueprint of my life!
