“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.

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!
