What is Your Sacrifice for $$$?
I'm finally making better choices with very satisfying rewards!
“Sometimes the prize is not worth the costs. The means by which we achieve victory are as important as the victory itself.” ― Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings
This video explains why I take the road less traveled when it comes to income. I spent the first 20 years of my adult life working for others (temp, bartending, waitress, the usual). Not a lot of money but enough for a fun time on the west end of Duval. While I was young and carefree living on an island at the S'most point in the US, it was still hard to miss the fact that there is a ceiling on a "working for others" income...
I grew up (a little tiny bit), got married (to my boss... there's a fun story), and became a real estate broker so I could "work for myself". Bahahaha. On call 24/7/365, I made a TON of money but, alas, no time to truly enjoy it.
Hurricane Wilma hit Key West October 24, 2005 and changed everything. Suddenly, nobody was buying resort real estate in a drowned town.
Cue running to Costa Rica where we lived on savings and reduced income for 5 years, basically spending our retirement on a wild adventure with our sons. No regrets.
When we got back to the states, we had to ask: what are we willing to sacrifice to make a living? Out of necessity, my first job back was as a traveling seminar leader. I traveled 2-3 weeks a month leading biz skills seminars for professionals who were only in the auditorium to look good for the boss. The money was decent, but a year into that, I quit... That time away from home and soul sacrifice was too huge.
There had to be something else!!! I followed my gut, borrowed the money, and become a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. I didn't know what that would look like but I knew helping people get healthy was my jam. The money would have to come!
That was in 2016. Today, I have a health business created from scratch with the help of friends, making soooo many new friends along the way!
I educate and deliver farm fresh food to foodies in the central Bluegrass. This is a get rich really really slowly scheme but it's rewarding in so many other ways.
I also coach people (mostly women and mostly for free) on how to reclaim their health.
To support both of those endeavors, I make a few hundred dollars a month as an affiliate, working 2-4 hours a day promoting clean, effective products for weight loss, nutrition, makeup, and skincare. Just like all those celebrity doctors do: Berg, Gundry, Food Babe, Shawn Baker, Ken Berry, Erin & Joe (Mercola, y'all).
I do the same as them, working with a phenomenal 43yo global certified B Corp. A B Corp has proven its commitment to the planet and people before profits. Less than .002% of companies in the world have earned the B Corp certification.
I am committed to my clients, providing the best service possible (one of the seminars I led, lol!). If you know anyone looking for clean makeup, clean nutrition, or to lose weight or clear up skin issues, skip the celebrities — I'll happily take that referral!
Because I talk to so many young moms and grandmas needing money, hating that they can't afford good food -- I mean, have you seen what a coupon gets you? What WIC pays for? The "free" lunch at school? What food stamps buy? If you want out of that rut, to make an income on your terms, let's talk. A 20 minute phone call will give you all the info you need to decide.
I'm on fire, y'all. I am grateful and truly blessed to have stumbled into this niche. You are invited to join me, either as client or colleague! Text me at 859-715-1400, I’d love to help.
