3 Basic Principles of Network Marketing

3 Basic Principles of Network Marketing

“1. There are no shortcuts. As with any endeavor, if you want to succeed you must be prepared to work hard, and work smart. And that starts with mastering the skills that have been proven to work by the millions who have already built successful businesses.

2. There are no excuses. It something isn’t working for you, you have to be prepared to change. That doesn’t mean looking around for a better company, a better system, or a new idea. It means changing you. Perhaps your attitude, the way you present yourself, the way you communicate, or your understanding of how your business works.

3. There are no trophies for trying. Network Marketing rewards results. Not everyone will make it because not everyone is prepared to do what it takes. If you are prepared, the rewards you receive will make it all worthwhile. If you decide network marketing is not for you, you will have risked nothing and lost nothing. One of the strengths of the industry is that you can even keep your regular job while you are building your business.”

Let US raise OUR kids!!!

I think this is going to be more of a rant than anything. LOL Sorry in advance. 

My husband and I have been trying to be more strict with our kids, because the way we have been handling them surly isn’t working. I’m not meaning strict as in beating them or anything, but more like giving them consequences for their actions. 

Our oldest had a soccer game tonight after school so we ate dinner at my parents house since the soccer field and the school my daughter goes to is only 5 minutes at most from my parents house. Well anyways we were there eating dinner and our 5 year old son who will be starting Kindergarten in the fall didn’t want to eat his dinner. He has always been a VERY picky eater, to the point of if we are having something that he doesn’t like or something that he’s never ate or tried before he wont eat. We’ve even done the whole “either you eat your dinner, or you go to your room with no toys or tv” or ” you sit there at the dinner table until you eat” Nothing has helped. 

Well tonight at my parent’s house, he decided that he wasn’t going to eat his dinner. So I told him “either you sit there and eat your dinner or when we get to the park for Destiney’s game, you don’t get to go and play on the playground before or after the soccer game. And don’t even ask because the answer is no” And he didn’t eat. We got to the park and he asked to go play. And I stuck to my guns with “you didn’t eat your dinner so your not going to play.”  He did his usual whining and left it go. Then my mother in law and sister in law and her kids showed up at the soccer game. And of course he thought he was going to go run off with her kids to the playground. I went and brought both of my kids back to the soccer field from the playground. For one he was told that if he didn’t eat his dinner then he wasn’t playing on the playground. And for two in my opinion a 5 year old and a 2 year old have no reason to be on a playground without a parent. And my sister in law’s 3 kids are only 8 and the twin girls are 6. So really to me I don’t think they should be alone on the playground either but they aren’t my kids so I wont go there. But anyways, I made my two kids come back up to the soccer field to watch their older sister play her soccer game.  That’s what we were there for anyways. 

So my kids stayed with me at the soccer field.  They played behind my chair until the game was over. Then my mother in law, knowing (because I told him at least 5-10 times during the game and I know that she heard me) that I told my son that he wasn’t going to the playground to play because he didn’t eat his dinner, just took both of my kids to the playground with my sister in laws kids. She didn’t ask if she could or even tell me that she was doing it. I turned around and they were all down at the playground. 

So really, what did this teach my son? That whenever she’s around, he doesn’t have to listen to me. My mother in law only lives about 20-25 minutes away from us and only see’s our kids on holidays. She knows that I am a sahm/wahm and she has off work 3 days a week but she never calls to see if she can come see them or calls to see if she can take them for the day. But my kids think the world of this lady. She does stuff with my husband’s sisters kids all the time, but never seems to have time to spend with our kids.But yet she tells everyone that it’s our fault that she never see’s our kids. And then when she is around them, nothing I say goes. 

I’m sorry for the rant. I just had to get it out of my system. If anyone has any suggestions please comment below. I’d even like to hear your MIL stories, or even your opinion. 

They grow up so fast.

When I started with It Works! I worked a part time/full time job. I say both because I worked 5 days a week but I didn’t work 40 hours a week. But I started It Works! to bring in extra money so eventually I wouldn’t have to work that job, and I could be home with our 3 kids. Then April of last year I started getting pains in my lower back and down my leg. By July the pain got really bad to where I could hardly walk or bend on certain days. Mind you I worked as a receptionist at a hair salon. I was on my feet all day long, also bending to get towels out of the dryer to fold and also bending to dust the retail shelves. At the end of July I left work one morning and headed to the Emergency Room. They checked to make sure I didn’t have a blood clot because I have a blood clotting disorder. Thank God I didn’t, but there was still a problem and they didn’t know what it was. They told me I had a strained hamstring and send me home with pain meds, told me to go see a physical therapist, and to stay off my feet as much as possible for 2 weeks. Which meant no work.

I didn’t know what we were going to do to pay our bills. We were over $10,000 in credit card debt, and had everyday bills and 3 kids to make sure they had everything that they needed plus food on the table. So I went and saw a Physical Therapist and he said that it wasn’t my hamstring, that I was out of line by an inch and a half. He realigned me and showed me how to do it at home by myself of with  my husbands help. And he told me to go see an Orthopedic specialist. So I made that appointment. Keep in mind that my husband has great insurance through his work but there are still co-pays to pay for each doctors visit.  So there was more money that I had to come up with for each visit. I went to an Orthopedic specialist and they did X-rays and said everything was fine besides for me being out of line, but didn’t think that was my problem and still wanted me off of my feet as much as possible. So they sent me for a MRI and to Physical Therapy two times a week for 5 weeks. So right there was a lot of money each week for co-pays. My MRI films finally came back and I had my appointment with the Orthopedic for her to go over what they found. She told me ” There is nothing wrong with your spine, some people just suffer from nerve pain. Go see Pain Management.” I about lost it. To me if felt like she thought I was faking my problems. At this point I was out of work for at least 3-4 months, and of course lost my job due to not being about to work. I found a new Orthopedic Specialist. I took my MRI films to the new doctor and told him everything that was going on, and he looked at my films. He looked for not even 5 minutes and said ” for one you have a herniated disc here, and also you have scoliosis, but I don’t think these things are causing your pain down your leg.” Then he ordered a CT scan of my lower back and a MRI of my hips and pelvis area. Those films came back and still nothing to answer the pain down my leg. Then I had an epidural spinal block done, no relief. Then I had two nerve blocks to my sciatic joint, with no relief. At this point I’ve been out of work for about 7-8 months. I was then sent to John’s Hopkins Hospital for a MRI Neurogram. Still with no answers. So that brings us to now. I am now waiting on a doctor from China or Japan to look at my Neurogram films to see if he sees anything that could be going on. My dr is planning to do a discogram to see if the pain is actually coming from my disc. So right now it’s another waiting game.

But back on topic. Why I’m saying “They grow up so fast” Is because my reason for starting my It Works! business was to eventually be making enough that I wouldn’t have to work anymore. If it wasn’t for It Works! I don’t know where my family would be. I sold wraps to pay my co-pays at the doctors. And even with me being off work for almost a year now, we were still able to pay off over $10,000 in credit card debt. And with me not working my J.O.B. (just over broke) and working my It Works! business from home we are way better now than we were when I was working that J.O.B. Yes I do events and parties, but I only do them when I am physically able to. And my business allows me to do so.

When I worked my job I missed my daughters soccer games, or I had to take off work to attend them meaning that I didn’t get paid. I missed our youngest daughter’s (and last child’s) first steps because I had to work. I missed so many milestones in our kids first years because I had to work. Now our oldest is 11 and finishing up the 5th grade, which means she will be going to middle school next year. I just got a paper yesterday talking about the plans for their 5th grade graduation. And it feels so good knowing that I don’t have to take off work, or even ask to have off work, to be able to go and see her walk across that stage. My baby girl is growing up and I don’t have to miss it anymore.

And our son (middle child) is 5 and will be starting Kindergarten in August and I wont have to miss him getting on the bus for the first time. And right now we are working on his writing and numbers and letters. And it feels so good knowing that I am helping him, not someone else.  And our youngest daughter (and last) is two and will be 3 in September. With her being the youngest and last there are so many things that I’m not missing out on that I had to with the other two. We are working on potty training, and she’s learning her ABC’s and counting.

It just feels amazing knowing that I don’t have to go to a job everyday. That I don’t have to answer to anyone (besides my kids lol) I am my own boss, I make my own hours. And that’s called FREEDOM!!!
