I believe things happen for a reason, and I believe in myself. I am passionate about Apriori Beauty and I love what I do.

I don’t know if I’d call what I do a ‘secret.’ I call it ‘commitment, consistency and follow-up.’ I USE our products. I LOVE our products and want to SHARE them with everyone I know.

“I am committed to making a difference in the lives of so many. When I meet potential Clients, I listen and learn about each individual and make suggestions that meet their specific needs. Building a relationship with my Client is a priority. I ask a few questions about their skin care regimen … what products they use and if they are happy. At the same time, I share my story about how I became a Founding Independent Consultant and my experience using and loving the Apriori Beauty products.

“I am consistent. I give my Clients 110% customer service. I call, email or text to check-in when I feel there may be a need to replenish or try something new. I also reward my Clients for their referrals. I appreciate their efforts and wanting to share our products with others.

“I always follow-up with my Clients. I send a personal Thank You card in the mail, thanking them for their purchase and supporting my business, along with my business card. I send personal emails about upcoming events, monthly specials and tips that relate to their individual needs once a month.

I started sharing my business with my family and friends. I’ve done pedicure parties, fundraisers and opportunity meetings to share what I love. I have participated in silent auctions for local schools and events in our community.

“I carry my silver Consultant Tote everywhere I go, which always seems to lead to good conversation and sharing stories. Everyone compliments my tote, so I usually share my story first, how I became a Founding Independent Consultant in February 2009 for this new company before the product launch. I was intrigued by these extraordinary women starting this business, helping women look and feel beautiful internally and externally with high-end, anti-aging skincare. I believed in the vision for this company and their Mission Statement. I knew it was the right time and place for me. I wanted to be apart of this once-in-a-lifetime, ground floor opportunity!

“I am always open to share my business. I usually start talking about our Celloxylin Face and Treatment products that work with Lifeoxylin. If they seem interested, then I offer them the Turn Back Time Capsule for $5 that is prepared with my business card, sample of our scrub and instruction sheet dressed beautifully with colored ribbon. I explain the easy steps to follow. Sometimes I sell a 30-day set on the spot, other times they order after they’ve tried the products.

“I also carry my Apriori Beauty notebook to write down my potential Client’s name and phone number, what concerns they have. I always let them know that I will follow-up with a phone call in 3 days to hear about their experience. I use this notebook as a daily reminder to build my business and follow-up with my Clients. I create a ‘TO DO’ list for the week. I spend at least two hours each day building my business. In addition, I take advantage of using my FREE replicating website and other social media to share Apriori Beauty products and testimonials.

“I believe things happen for a reason, and I believe in myself. I am passionate about Apriori Beauty and I love what I do. I want to thank Tricia Baumgardner, for believing in me and sharing this wonderful opportunity. You are my inspiration to move forward and build a successful business. It’s been an amazing, fun and rewarding journey thus far. I can’t wait to see what my future holds. Thank you for your continuous support!

“What is my favorite product? I love all of our products, but if I had to choose one, it would be our Day Defense with SPF. I love the way my skin feels when I apply it to my face. It’s the one product that I use the most. I usually reapply 2-3 times daily for extra protection. I love that our products are safe, all-natural and made with Organic ingredients. I’ve never been happier about my skincare regimen. I’m so happy to be apart of this company!”

Beauty through building relationships!

Apriori Beauty is all about people. Individuals with dreams, passion and an inspiration to help others by sharing a great product! Apriori Beauty’s second point in its mission statement — Beauty through building relationships— is evident in every Consultant story. Yesterday’s Business Building Basics, Consultant training in California was an amazing day filled with great stories, testimonials and motivating relationship building. Following are just a few of those inspiring Consultant stories …

Tamera Preece
L-R: Sue Forster, Tamera Preece, Carolyn Glade and Melissa Ryan.

Tamera Preece is a new Consultant from Tucson, AZ. For the past two years, she’s been a loyal Client of Manager, Carolyn Glade. They met at a women’s networking event in Tucson. Tamera is the perfect example of Use Love Share. She Used and Loved the products for years and recently decided to register as a Consultant to Share them with others.

It all started last fall, when out of the blue and out of curiosity, Tamera emailed Carolyn asking about MLB in Las Vegas. Carolyn explained it was Apriori Beauty’s first annual Consultant event. Tamera shared that “It was Las Vegas, I’m always interested in going there!” Then recently, out of the blue, Carolyn received an email that Tamera had signed up as a Consultant. Her curiosity got the best of her and she decided to turn Use and Love into Share! Shortly thereafter, Tamera mentioned that she wanted to go to California to attend the BBB in May. Without hesitation, Carolyn said, “Let’s go!”

A relationship that started as strangers at a networking event, turned into a road trip from Tucson, Arizona to Laguna Hills, CA and a new friendship. Over three days, they drove 471 miles together and back, and enjoyed a day of Apriori Beauty training, networking and sightseeing on their way home through San Diego! Kudos to Carolyn for being such a wonderful upline to Tamera!

Kathy Pleu (L) and Catalina Quintero
Jami Taguchi (L) and Julia Cantu

Another great story started at MLB in Las Vegas last November. Kathy Pleu, a Consultant from Bixby, Oklahoma met and clicked instantly with Founding Consultant, Catalina Quintero from Coto de Caza, CA. Who would of thought that two people sitting next to each other at a table from different downlines would become such great friends! When Catalina heard that Kathy was coming to CA for the BBB training in May, she said “You’re staying at my house!” And so she did. Catalina picked Kathy up at the airport, showed her the sites in Laguna Beach, including the beautiful Montage Resort, and took her home to meet her family. She even treated Kathy to breakfast in bed the next morning before heading to the training. What a great hostess and a great friend! Thank you Catalina!

Yesterday’s training also resulted in three new Consultants. Individuals curious about the opportunity participated as guests and left as Consultants! Jami Taguchi from Calabasas, CA invited Julia Cantu from West Hills, CA to join the day. Early on, Julia shared that she was interested in learning if it was “worth the risk.” She decided it was and became a new Consultant before leaving!

Taylore Sinclaire
Mackenzie Miller

Consultant Taylore Sinclaire, from Santa Ana, CA brought as her guest, the beautiful Mackenzie Miller. Mackenzie works for Taylore at IlluminEssensce, where they help women find the most beautiful version of them self through fashion and beauty. Taylore participated in the training to see how she could work the products into her consulting business, and Mackenzie participated to learn more about Apriori Beauty. Mackenzie also left as a new Consultant, eager to take what she learned about the opportunity and products, to help other women.

A new Consultant herself, Terri Rausch from San Juan Capistrano hit the ground running by inviting her friend Karen Maduell from Costa Mesa, CA to the BBB training. Karen is a pilates instructor and during the training, realized that Apriori Beauty was a logical match to her already existing business. She also left the training as a new Consultant, ready to go with products and samples!

Consultant Corinne Welch is a two-time participant in the BBB training. Even though she is only interested in retailing to Clients, she loves to hear everyone’s retailing tips and learning more about sponsoring and earning downline bonuses, for when she’s ready!
