Let’s chat a minute about something that has been on my mind a lot lately. It’s this idea of building a business and creating a brand. But actually creating a business and brand that is based on community, culture, cause and income. Not just INCOME!
Because that is just not cool!!
Just a few months ago when I started my hair business with MONAT- I started it because I fell in love with the how my hair felt, how the oiliness was disappearing, and the support system. I thrived in an environment where other women were encouraging one another, posting their daily accountability pics, sharing stories, motivational quotes and their own hair results.
As a mom of a 3 year old and and one on the way, I spent a lot of time cooped up in the house living the not so glamorous mom life. I craved adult interaction but I had a really hard time with KJ. Last year was a disaster, every time we left the house it was a production and quite honestly it was just easier to stay home. I was struggling with my life in general and no direction of where I was headed… BIG TIME! I lacked some serious confidence and I was not doing very well emotionally.
So when MONAT came into my life it was like the ABSOLUTE perfect timing, adding to the growth I was on mission for. I truly thought that you HAD to be a certain way, have a certain look, a stylist, or know it all to help others with a hair issue and seeking that beautiful we strive for! I didn’t have any idea how to achieve the results that I wanted. MOANT was my BEAUTIFUL CONFIDENT THEORY that worked for me. Simple hair system that allowed me to see that the issues I had struggled with my hair and how to care for it properly was all a matter of a shampoo and conditioner that I could use to get the results I desired. The icing on the cake was the supportive (sisterhood) community. I followed the plan, educated on things I was unaware of and was 100% engaged in the group I was a part of. Guess what… I got results! I was disciplined, dedicated and consistent, where most would see an hair issue and stop immediately. My results showed it and I was naturally sharing that with EVERYONE that I talked to! I was a walking billboard for the shampoo and I believed in it. The transition was so natural. I created my brand based on new moms- moms who wanted to get control of their confidence and finally feel beautiful again after having babies and also women who wanted to learn about living a thriving life. Even when I start to write about it, I start to get excited because I love teaching other people so much about living a happy, confident fulfilled life.
How Did It Become My Business?
So shampoo and hair care became my business because I started teaching people who were my friends on Facebook and followers on IG what was working for me. I would share my videos of inspiration, hair care, hair how-to’s, pairing the different products together, and the principles of caring for ourselves. I was also running groups to help educate people on their hair and how to build a business from it and I was using the MONAT products to help them achieve the results because that worked for me. The more that I poured into people, the more success that they had with the systems because they knew I was invested in them not their dollars, so the more that they referred their friends and family to me and the more my network began to grow. It was organic growth and I blogged about EVERYTHING from how to wash their hair and care for it daily, to treatments, to how to do quick and easy mom styles.
I built my business amidst the chaos of momlife. I can tell you that it wasn’t glamorous or easy but it was so rewarding to be able to earn an income doing something I love while being home with my kids. It started out as a side gig and is becoming a big part of our income. Truly incredible and blessed by the opportunity.
How Am I Growing My Team?
As my customers started to achieve results with the products I started to invite them to journey along side of me. I thought about it this way, I can only help a limited number of people. But- if I have people on the team that are also out there helping others to achieve their happy, confident and feeling beautiful goals we can help more people. People believed in what I was teaching and were sharing that naturally so it started to grow!!! The more that I was vocal about growing a team of like minded people the more that people joined me. I talk a lot about building a team and I also talk a lot about helping customers. I started to create videos on how to grow a business and so the birth of my second focus of my brand which is business development was born. I actually love teaching people how to build a business as much as I do the hair care side of it.
Our Tribe Is Being Born!
Over the past few months I and we have been growing and growing! I’m not even sure what we will call our team, yet but we are and will be made up of women and men of all different backgrounds. I knew this time I wanted those who wanted better and was willing to do what it took, even through the hard. I know that if we had amazing leaders on our team that would contribute to the growth of the organization, we could impact so many more lives! The one thing that I really have leaned in to is WHO SPECIFICALLY I wanted to surround myself with!
The one thing that I do NOT like about network marketing is the promise of ‘quick money’ & you don’t have to ‘work hard’ to make an income. There is also a very negative connotation on network marketing that it is a ‘pyramid scheme’ and its just a bunch of ‘product pushers’. The funny thing is that I have never felt like MONAT has been a company pushing a product. I 100% believe in what MOANT stands for in their products. They really do work and if you focus on the journey, instead of a quick fix you can achieve results. I mean there is nothing to argue there… it’s real whole quality products. Of course you have to purchase the product to be a part of my services offered which is the same as going to a salon or a gym, even. You can’t walk in and get a transformation unless you pay. Same here!
So Who Do I want On My Team? What Are Our Values?
If you are looking for a team to join I want to be VERY CLEAR ABOUT our TEAM, our mission and culture. I do not want you to join the team expecting to be a millionaire in the first year. I also do not want the promise of striking it rich to be the reason you join us. The PURPOSE of becoming a market partner on our team is because you see the opportunity to help other people achieve a happy, confident and fulfilling life. You want to inspire others to make the change and you know that you are going to have to actively put yourself out there to create traction and momentum in your business. You are not afraid to do the hard work because you believe in the work. You don’t feel like you are selling but you feel like you are sharing the secret to living your best life.
You know that your INCOME is a product of the lives that you CHANGE/IMPACT.
You have a deep sense of COMMUNITY and you are someone that can be TRUSTED! You are someone that cares about being a part of a culture that works together. There is no EGO and we lift each other up. There is NO ROOM FOR GOSSIP or any of that stuff that women sometimes do in the workplace.
We work for a CAUSE! We are women that band together if someone is in need and we will wrap our arms around you no matter what.
So if you are looking to join a team that is going to support you, that is going to lead by example and practice what they preach…. we are YOUR TEAM!!!
We are not going to tell you what to and then not do it! We are going to lead by example right along side of you.
BUT…. I want to STRESS that it is work!!! It is not all rah-rah-rah, because changing sometimes mindset is work but its the most rewarding WORK you can do!
If you do your job and you do it well, then you will be financially rewarded. While I can’t guarantee any level of income- I know what is possible and I know what you can achieve if you want a different income for you and your family.
If you want to build a business then I am your GIRL and I will teach you everything that I have done to build my business from launching my business, growing my Facebook from <100 people to over 5k followers! I will also share with you how to Instagram, Instastories, share not sell, and invite others to join and run effective accountability and support groups. Our team works together to run monthly trainings where you get 1:1 and small group support in helping you reach your goals.
Whether you want an extra hundred dollars a month or you want to go all in and really make this business a full time income we can teach you how. It will take you taking ACTION but if you are ready to join then now is the time.
