“When I love something, I tell everyone”

I used to be the woman with flawless skin who never gave much thought to her face. Even as a teenager going through puberty, my face was always clear of zits. And then three years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful son and everything changed. My skin became greasy and was constantly covered in acne. After going through an endless amount of products that no longer worked for me, I went on the search for a skincare line that was safe, honest, and worked for my face. And then, I came across Apriori Beauty.

A lot of skincare companies don’t want you to know the ingredients they use in their products. Sure, they like to feature the popular and safe ingredients; however, there’s hidden items in these products that we as consumers aren’t notified of. What initially attracted me to Apriori Beauty was the Science Center on the website because it lists and describes every single ingredient found in the products. They don’t hide anything because they don’t have to – all their ingredients are safe and healthy for you! I requested a sample and used it up … every last drop. This was it; Apriori Beauty was the skincare for me. My skin began clearing up and I was getting compliments on my skin, which was especially nice because it’d been a while.

I initially signed up as an Apriori Beauty Consultant just for the discount. If I’m using the products, why not become a Consultant and save some money? People notice when you do something different, and I was no exception. Friends, family, and even acquaintances started asking me what I was using because they were seeing an improvement in my skin. I soon realized that I could pay for my skincare simply by sharing my Apriori Beauty experience with others. Once I opened myself to the opportunity, people started purchasing and my business began growing. Even my husband jumped on board! He’s not only 100% supportive in my business, but he is also one of my best Clients (his current obsession is the ViViD Treatment Oil)! It’s not about selling and pressuring someone to buy; it’s about sharing what you use and love. You’d be surprised at how easy it is to incorporate Apriori Beauty into a conversation. If you’re talking about the weather, relate it to their skin (is the climate leaving their skin dry or oily?) and then discuss your skincare and how it works for you.

Want to know the secret to a successful business? Follow-up! If you don’t follow-up with people, they’ll put those products samples away in a drawer and forget all about them. One thing I’ve learned is that people aren’t annoyed when you follow-up with them. Instead, they’re actually quite grateful and appreciative. When I first started, I was afraid I was bothering them, but that’s not the case. They lead busy lives too and sometimes just need a little reminder.

I’m still new at this, and every day has been a learning experience for me. Between being a Pilates Instructor and Massage Therapist, I see numerous Clients every week and they look to me for advice. It’s refreshing to know I can share Apriori Beauty with confidence and not feel insecure about my skin. When someone asks me about becoming a Consultant, I tell them, “If it’s something you use, it’s a great way to get a discount and if you share it with others, it’s an added bonus.” Use, Love, Share – yes, it’s just that simple.

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!
