HOW DID YOU START YOUR BUSINESS ADVENTURE? HOW MUCH TIME DID YOU NEED TO SUCCEED IN MLM AND WHAT STRATEGIES DID YOU USE?
I started with passion and gusto by utilizing face to face meetings and social media. I came into success very quickly because I treated my business like a business instead of a hobby. I made a contact list and personally contacted the people I wanted to partner with.
WHAT IS YOUR DRIVE IN MLM? IS MLM YOUR PASSION? AND IF SO, WHY HAVE YOU HAD SUCH A STRONG EMOTION TOWARDS THIS KIND OF BUSINESS?
Yes, I love this industry. It can do so much for people both in a financial aspect and in personal/professional development aspects. Being able to see friends go from barely being able to put food on the table to hitting the top rank in our company, brings me such a joy.
JOHN C. MAXWELL SAID: ‘LIFE IS A MATTER OF CHOICES AND EVERY CHOICE YOU MAKE MAKES YOU’. YOU HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME WORK IN NETWORK MARKETING. HOW DID THAT CHOICE ‘CREATE’ YOU?
This industry chose me. I was always a person of service and have always loved helping others. In a sense, this comes very naturally to me. As far as “creating” me, I did that on my own by becoming a student of network marketing. I did this by reading books upon books, going to seminars, and becoming the best version of me. I still do that today.
OKAY, NOW FOR THE STATS… HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED IN THE NETWORK MARKETING PROFESSION, HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH YOUR CURRENT COMPANY, HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU PERSONALLY ENROLLED INTO YOUR COMPANY AND WHAT IS THE CURRENT SIZE OF YOUR ORGANIZATION?
I have been in this industry for 20 years. I launched with my most recent company 6 years ago during Pre-Launch. I have enrolled hundreds of business partners and currently our network marketing family is currently 250,000 strong and growing every day!
I WONDER HOW ARE YOU DOING IN THESE TROUBLED TIMES. HOW CORONAVIRUS HAS AFFECTED YOUR BUSINESS? OR THE WAY YOU DO YOUR BUSINESS?
We have been a beacon for so many as another option in these times of need. Our sales and enrollment is at a record high right now because people NEED it. People are also starting to open their eyes at how important residual income is!
PLEASE TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR COMPANY, MONAT?
Monat is truly unique. From our owners (the Urdaneta family) to the corporate staff to the formulators, everything is done five star. This is definitely the best company that I have had the pleasure of working with! They truly do have the finest professionals in the entire world. We are rooted in culture and gratitude and we are grateful every day that we can make a difference in people’s lives.
YOU HAVE ALSO ACHIEVED CONSIDERABLE SUCCESS AS A WRITER. PLEASE TELL OUR READERS ABOUT YOUR TWO ‘EFFING BOOKS’.
Effing Simple was a “dream goal,” of mine that I achieved because of this business. Self publication is not cheap, but there are people/small businesses out there that make the process much easier now. Both books both are #1 Amazon best sellers. I wrote the first one in reference to our industry and the second one was about becoming the best version of you. They are sold under the Effing Simple platform.
TONI, YOUR JOB IS YOUR PASSION. BUT WHAT ELSE IS FULFILLING IN YOUR LIFE? YOUR FAMILY, YOUR NON PROFIT ACTIVITIES, BEING ON STAGE AS AN MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER OR SOMETHING ELSE?
All of the above and yoga! Yoga and treating the mind have been huge game changers for my success. We also started a nonprofit a few years ago called Low Country Love so we can help families in need. It has been wonderful to help those that have fallen into hard times due to the situation we are in now. My family is the reason that I do everything, my why. Everyday I get up and grind for them. Speaking and teaching is my jam. I just love being on stage creating value for others.
