Great Start Consultant – Barbara French

Joined: April 2015
Personally Sponsored Consultants: 1

I am the mother of 4 grown children, stepmother of 2, with a total of 12 grandchildren, and am a retired Corporate Credit/Customer Service Manager of 25+ years. Always eager and enthusiastic of my kids’ activities, I spent a lot of time on softball, baseball and soccer fields and was even softball manager for my daughters’ teams and team mother for my son’s baseball teams. During these last few years, I’ve started doing things I’ve always wanted to do (like oil painting), but couldn’t because I was too busy being Mom and businesswoman. I had always planned to take it easy after retiring, but fate stepped in and had far more exciting plans for me.

I attended my first Apriori Beauty Bar at my friend Robin Whitney’s house back in April 2015. I was just expecting to have a social evening and possibly buy a few products in support of my friend. What I experienced instead was a group of very professional, congenial and delightful businesswomen who were all excited about their products and expressed enthusiasm and support for their fellow associates at Apriori Beauty. I was so impressed by these women, the products, and the business model and structure of Apriori Beauty (with their goal of supporting, encouraging and empowering women), that I eagerly joined that very night. I’m happy to be part of part of a Company that offers a myriad of tools including fantastic products, a free personalized website full of information and knowledge, flyers, brochures, as well as training videos and conference calls. Apriori Beauty gives us everything we need to be successful in this business. Did I mention the incentive programs and monthly bonuses? Social networking and building relationships with delightful and motivated women only proves that this new retirement plan is far better than my original one.

I cannot say enough about my amazing Consultant sponsor, Robin, who has been instrumental in my involvement with Apriori Beauty and is always supportive and encouraging. She has guided me from the beginning, showing me different ways to “share” these one-of-a-kind products and even organized my first Beauty Bar a Beauty Bar that I co-hosted with my daughter and Apriori Beauty Consultant, Cindy Blake! Through Robin’s encouragement and confidence in me, I gave my first presentation at my Beauty Bar and plan to do more in the upcoming months. Robin is so generous with her time and knowledge, which is typical of the selfless people who make Apriori Beauty the outstanding organization that it is. From her invaluable coaching, I’ve learned that consistency and follow-up is key to success and to always keep my goals in sight. One of my goals is to be a supportive and effective sponsor as Robin has been for me.

I cherish meaningful relationships and having the opportunity that being an Apriori Consultant provides, allows me to continuously meet new and interesting people on a regular basis. I love the “Use, Love, Share” attitude and am looking forward to getting to know all my Apriori Beauty friends on a deeper level while building my own successful business and contributing to the growth of Apriori Beauty as a company.

My journey with Apriori Beauty began in 2013 when I was a Business Consultant. I was at a networking event when I met one of the most beautiful woman I’ve ever come across before. Her name was Jami Taguchi and she was presenting Apriori Beauty’s Celloxylin® Derma Firm Illuminator. After years of being involved in the holistic health care industry, I knew the use of the ultra-sound was an effective anti-aging device that held no competition. We became friends and I was left with an impression of Apriori Beauty. Months later, I decided to become an Apriori Beauty Consultant with only having used the samples Jami had given me. I loved the natural skincare, saw the results first-hand in Jami, and knew being a Consultant would impact my life somehow. I was going through a difficult time and kept feeling as if God was telling me to call Jami and sign up as a Consultant. So, I listened and reached out to Jami. I was upfront with Jami and told her how I felt compelled to become a Consultant. When I mentioned that feeling, she said she had just prayed for leaders to join her team. This was intriguing because I didn’t want to sell another direct sales line, much less another skincare line, yet I knew there was something else meant for me when I became a Consultant. I wasn’t ready to push or follow any other guidance for quite some time. For nearly two years, my business was dormant. I would occasionally give out samples but my follow-up was often inconsistent. Instead of stressing and getting down on myself, I acted in complete faith and friendship.

Fast forward to November of 2014, I became an Esthetician and started a new career as an Independent Contractor at Body Wellness Spa in Orange, California, naming my business Swallowtail Skin Therapies, which is especially symbolic for me. Whether I’m giving facials or body treatments, I’m always introducing my spa clients to Apriori Beauty, with my favorites being the Celloxylin® Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub and Lifeoxylin® Cellular Defense Elixir. I’ve worked with numerous cosmetic lines and there is nothing as effective and reasonably priced as Apriori Beauty. I take each session as an opportunity to educate my clients on the benefits Apriori Beauty holds for their skin and health. For example, when speaking about the Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub, I relay to my clients that as sugar releases oxygen, a chemical reaction, the oxygen then kills the bacteria in the skin (i.e. black heads, white heads, and pimples). In addition, the granulated sugar is the perfect size and shape to effectively scrub off layers of dead skin cells, while the enzymes eat away the bacteria from the skin’s surface. Women will pay well over $100 for one exfoliating treatment when they can get three exfoliating treatments in one $38 product that will last them months!

Along with the Micro Scrub, I love recommending the Lifeoxylin® Cellular Defense Elixir because it creates an internal sunscreen. Topical sunscreens (besides the incredible Celloxylin® Day Defense Plus, Broad Spectrum SPF 25) are toxic and not nearly as effective as our skin needs them to be. So many people aren’t aware that topical sunscreens are toxic and must be reapplied every two hours for maximum effectiveness. As an Esthetician who sees the dangerous effects of skin damage on a daily basis, I’m constantly educating my clients on quick and simple ways they can prevent it. Here in Southern California, we’re constantly doing activities outside in the sun, exposing our skin to the harsh UVA and UVB rays. My clients (which consist of runners, cyclists, surfers, and moms who spend a lot of time outside playing with their kids), may be healthy internally, but the effects from the sun are harming their skin. I see excessive dark spots, premature fine lines, and dried skin lacking hydration. Just by drinking 1 ounce of the Cellular Defense Elixir daily, these skin issues can easily be prevented. We all know it’s no fun stopping a child from playing to reapply sunscreen, which is why I recommend the Elixir. It’s available for the whole family and a beneficial tool that supports a healthy lifestyle while preventing sun damage and possibly skin cancer.

If you asked me how I maintain consistent Client sales, I would tell you it requires consistent conversation. I network my business and set myself apart from other estheticians by being a Holistic Esthetician. I describe my holistic modalities, product lines, and why I chose the less popular holistic route instead of a higher-end brand. After each facial, every spa client of mine is gifted with Apriori Beauty samples and product recommendations for their skin type. I register my facial clients as Apriori Beauty Clients and send them a quick email, relaying again my recommendations and letting them know I’m available if they have any questions. For those who indicate finances are tight, I immediately share Apriori Beauty’s Opportunity, informing them about the rebates they can receive just by purchasing products for themselves. Plus, since the $49 Starter Kit comes with a free Celloxylin® Pure Detox, Purifying Masque (retail value of $44), I mention all the benefits the masque can provide for their skin. They’re not only treating their skin to safe and effective products, but they’re also staying within their budget too!

These are the actions I take as a business owner, but know that there is no perfect method for growing your business. As long as your intention is clear, you can find a hundred ways to make it happen. Some months I have more facial clients and fewer sales. Other months, I receive commission only on my own purchases, and sometimes I have great sales and fewer clients. Every month is different. Regardless, retailing offers so many benefits to my esthetic practice. Clients are available to listen and are open to sampling products because they’ve seen the results from our spa sessions. Layering the conversation, staying consistent with my services, and providing recommendations have all contributed to my successful clientele base. And, letting God be God has taken a lot of pressure off of me. Pressure can hinder sales, Clients, and financial goals. I’m able to do my part in sharing and taking responsibility for my business, and letting God do the rest. As I’m continuously transforming as a person and business owner, my Apriori Beauty business is always ever changing and thriving because that’s my intention. As you intend it, you will create it.

Turning Dreams into Family Memories

Natalie and family enjoying the surprise of a lifetime in Hawaii
Natalie and her family enjoying the vacation of a lifetime

“A few years ago, I decided to surprise my family with a vacation to Hawaii, paid for with my Apriori Beauty earnings. I established weekly and monthly goals and it paid off! I had been keeping it a secret from my husband, because I wanted to surprise him first. On Valentine’s Day, I shared the exciting news with him – the whole family was going to Hawaii over Spring break and it was already paid for! He was so happy and proud of me, which made it even more special. We waited until the morning of the trip to share the news with our two youngest sons that not only were we leaving to go to Maui, but that their older brother
Mitchell, who lives away from home for school, would be joining us. My family and I were so happy to be reunited on a beautiful island, where we had the opportunity to enjoy being all together as a family. It was one of the most memorable vacations we’ve ever had and I’m incredibly grateful to Apriori Beauty for helping me achieve this dream. I truly love what I do, Using Loving and Sharing Apriori Beauty, and am grateful for the opportunity to make a difference for others. With Apriori Beauty, dreams really can come true!” — NATALIE WALSH, Founder & Manager from CA
