What if… Plexus was your Journey to Freedom?

This is my story as an Independent Ambassador with Plexus Worldwide and how we are achieving freedom for our family! I would like to start by saying that I am blessed to be a stay at home Mom with our 2 ½ year old son (Liam). To say I am busy would be accurate, and to say I love what I do would be an understatement. On top of staying home with our son, I juggle taking care of a household, our dog, volunteering with our FRG and our Christian Mom’s group, well as various other activities that keep us busy with friends. If I can fit the blessing of Plexus into my life, surely anybody can!

In August 2013 I was at a tipping point with a weight loss journey I had been on for about 2 years, and I was ready for a change to help me reach my goal weight. Because we were a one income family, I was also looking for a way to help add to our income without having to sacrifice time with my son at home. I knew there had to be a way to help with our finances, do something I enjoy, and most importantly, be able to stay home to raise our son. I was introduced to Plexus in September 2013 by a friend who was posting to her Facebook page. She was sharing about a delicious ‘pink drink’ that was helping her lose weight and improve her energy levels. The moment I saw that she was having success, I wanted to try it myself! You see, on top of my weight loss struggle, I was lacking energy and motivation and was slowly gaining all of my weight back. Life was getting busy again, I had forgotten my routine, and slowly but surely I was not fitting into my smaller jeans. A few days after seeing the first post, I messaged my friend and asked to buy a seven day trial to see if it could work for me too. As soon as I tried Plexus Slim (AKA the ‘pink drink’) I was hooked! My energy was improved, I eating less and feeling fuller, I was sleeping better, and my mood was improving! The best part was, after the full week was over, I had lost a little over 5 inches and 5 pounds! Since I was so excited, I too shared how I was loving Plexus’s “Pink Drink” on Facebook and before I knew it, Jenny was telling me I had a business waiting for me! Several of friends had contacted her asking how they could get started themselves with Plexus and a few even wanted to know about the business side of things. Crazy enough, I initially said “No!” when Jenny asked if I was ready to sign as an Independent ambassador! I was a little scared to jump in! After a few days, and several messages from my friends asking if I was going to start selling, I took the plunge into the business side of Plexus as an ambassador. Within the first couple of days I had already made my first promotion to Silver Ambassador and earned my first bonus! I was surprised how easy it was to share the excitement of these products that worked, and I was looking forward to growing my income as a stay at home Mom. My first check from Plexus more than covered my initial products and I was very excited to see my ‘sharing’ paying me!

Since September 2013, I have been working my business during my son’s nap time and having a great time reconnecting with old friends as I share these products with as many people as I can. As time has progressed I have been amazed by this wonderful company that God has placed into our laps. We have a product that works and is changing lives for the good and helping thousands of people get their health back and become financially secure. Plexus is also a company that is only eight years old and is projected to be a billion dollar company by the year 2015! (This is almost unheard of!) Just in the growth of our annual convention, we have quadrupled since 2013. The best part is, our market in El Paso is just starting to get broken into… there is room for everybody at the top! To say that Plexus is the right company at the right time is an understatement. Becoming an ambassador with Plexus has impacted our family in many positive ways. My health is continuing to improve as I head towards my goal weight, our finances have been positively impacted, and I have the freedom to continue staying home to raise our son while also having a career I am passionate about. Plexus has helped me to find to my passion of helping others as well as reveal my passion for leadership in network marketing. As a leader I have the opportunity to impact many lives through my career and show other Moms that they can change the world as well. I am excited to be able to share the opportunity of true freedom. Freedom in health, wealth, and time is open for anybody to take advantage of. I finally feel like I know what I want to be when I grow up: a Plexus Ambassador in the amazing business of changing lives!

Pictured above: a goal I’ve set for myself, to have a team full of Diamonds (including myself) at 2015 Plexus convention (our highest rank).

 I’d like to share a big thank you to my husband, Kelly, for supporting me in my business adventures and loving me the whole way through. And to our son Liam, for being my reason ‘’why’’ I am working on getting healthier every day. Every day I am thankful to God for bringing this opportunity into my life and I look forward to seeing what the future holds!

Several leaders from our amazing team at convention 2014, in Dallas.

I’d also like to give a shout out thanking my friends Jenny Hansen and Edie McRae for reaching out to me and not giving up after I said no the first couple of times when they asked me to become an ambassador. Also, a huge thanks goes out to my amazing team. You are all diamonds in the making and I am so blessed to have you in our lives and a part of my team. A final word to those moms who work hard at home raising their small children, and wonder if it will pay off… I believe that the calling to be a mother is the most important ‘job’ we could ever have! If it is possible, don’t trade this precious time with your little ones for money. Enjoy the days while they are small and pour yourself into them, because raising your children is the biggest thing you will ever do in your lives! If you’re reading through my story and wondering if you could be successful yourself with Plexus, I will say: If I can do it, anybody can do it… I encourage you to find your passion! I am so excited about where Plexus is heading and how we are growing in our area and around the country, the opportunity is out there to have the best of a career and being able to have freedom to stay at home!
