“If there is anything I’ve learned, it’s to ask and allow yourself to receive support, and in turn give support when needed.”

Back in December 2014, I accomplished a major goal of mine – I graduated from massage school. Whereas school required most of my time and attention, it was extremely important to me because I was helping others reduce stress, lessen pain, and assist in their shift to self-healing. All the work and effort I put in was always worth it because I knew I was making a difference in other people’s lives.

The same can be said for my Apriori Beauty business, which is near and dear to my heart. As with massage school, Apriori Beauty has gifted me with an amazing support system consisting of mentors, accountability partners, and valued resources. More importantly, I’ve gained genuine friends who I foresee working with long into the future. For me, support has been the underlining factor in building my business. Yes, you can build and maintain a successful business on your own, but I’ve found that the more you work as a team and support one another, the more powerful and successful everyone’s business becomes. Each person brings with them a unique gift to the team. Some hold strengths in organization and commitment, while others are stronger in sales and speaking to potential Clients. If one person is unsure of how to approach a prospect, they automatically have a group to reach out to and receive feedback from. If there is anything I’ve learned, it’s to ask and allow yourself to receive support, and in turn give support when needed. I think that’s why my team’s Beauty Bars are always successful. It’s because we’re always radiating positivity and our guests are attracted to that. What we lack as individuals, we possess as a team.

In addition to the people of Apriori Beauty, what initially drew me and has kept me as an Apriori Beauty Independent Consultant are the products. There are so many cosmetic companies in this country that are causing people harm. I love Apriori Beauty’s concept of sharing because it really is about sharing as opposed to the dreaded term “selling.” Apriori Beauty is providing a product that is not only safe but produces amazing results – proof that you don’t have to sacrifice health for beauty! As someone who cares about the health and safety of others, I feel obligated to share these incredible products. Why? Because if I don’t, chances are they’ll be introduced to something else that isn’t safe nor produce the results they desire. Every person should have the choice to use a product that is safe and effective and should never have to compromise his or her health for beauty!

My suggestion for all Consultants is to take advantage of the many resources available to us through Apriori Beauty. The Consultant Back Office is full of retailing and business-building trainings, weekly momentum exercises, and Susan Twellman’s weekly “Walk the Talk” calls which always leave me inspired and motivated. Furthermore, it’s imperative you establish goals and write them down on paper. Goals are much more powerful when written because they keep you accountable and help establish your game plan for building your business. When I first started massage school, they had us write down our goals. I stated that I wanted to be working at a Holistic Center. Later when the school mailed out the letters we had written to ourselves, I had completely forgot I even wrote it, but the great thing was that two weeks prior to receiving the letter, I had just rented space in a Holistic Center. Never underestimate the power of thought or dreams – anything is possible! All in all, no matter what comes your way, focus on maintaining a high positivity ratio. Bad days will come and go and it’s not always easy to discard negativity from our life. Just as long as your positivity outweighs the negativity by at least 4:1, you’re set for productivity and success. Remember, every negative or failure in your life is an opportunity to learn and improve.

I became an Esthetician because I wanted to help others look and feel good about themselves. People use skincare to enhance the quality of their skin and overall appearance, but unfortunately, there’s so many products allowed in the cosmetic industry that can harm instead of help you. What’s worse is that people have no idea about the side effects because these products are being labeled as healthy when in fact they’re anything but. I had heard about Apriori Beauty from a co-worker, but it wasn’t until a pregnant Client of mine came in and mentioned she was using a specific product, which I feared could be dangerous to her pregnancy, that I felt inclined to take action and become an Apriori Beauty Consultant.

It’s interesting how everything is interconnected; the world is a lot smaller than you think. I first met my upline, Lisa Adam years ago when we worked for the same company. Due to the fact we were at different locations, we didn’t really know each other but were rather just acquaintances. It wasn’t until Lisa’s hairstylist (who works at the same salon as I do), introduced me to her and encouraged me to try Apriori Beauty. There’s some people you automatically click with and feel like you’ve known forever and for me, that someone is Lisa. She gave me a sample, which I tried and I loved! Before I made the commitment to bring the products into the salon, I thoroughly researched Apriori Beauty because I wanted to make sure it was the perfect fit. I’m conscious of what goes on somebody’s body, how it’s going to help them, and the effect it will ultimately have on them. With Apriori Beauty, the products contain all-natural, pure ingredients, and they work! Back in December, I was burned on my face, near my eye. Being in the field I’m in, you want to look as good as possible. Clients expect to walk in and see someone who takes great care of their skin. At the time, I was using makeup to cover the burn, which was doing the job, but my skin wasn’t healing. Since I began using Apriori Beauty a few months ago, I’ve noticed a tremendous difference in my skin. Not only has the burned area improved significantly, but my overall complexion now screams radiance. As a fifty year-old, nothing says compliment like someone questioning your age because they can’t believe you’re older than forty!

Apriori Beauty has proven to be a great partnership. I feel confident in using the products on Clients and sharing with them the importance of a healthy skin regimen. So often, people ask me what they should use on their face, how they should use it, and how often. They need an at-home regimen that will give results. I live by the mantra “Do no harm,” and with Apriori Beauty, I can confidently help others look and feel their best without causing them harm. If it’s anything I’ve learned since joining in April, it’s that the sky’s is the limit, and I plan to get the word out about this incredibly safe and effective skincare!
