It often seems like those who spend all of their time taking care of others rarely have time to take care of themselves. This was certainly the case for Jodie, a holistic health therapist from Leeds
Working at a five-star spa, Jodie would work long stretches of time without days off—sometimes up to nine days in a row. Working in a darkened room and rarely seeing sunlight only added to her feeling fatigued.
Looking for something different, she decided to become self-employed and work from a spare room in her mum’s home. At first, she enjoyed the independence and the opportunity to connect with clients and form a deeper relationship with them than she might have before. Being self-employed also allowed her to tap into her natural creativity and put her business-savvy mind to good use.
But over time, this too became quite stressful: there was no paid leave and her income could be inconsistent.
It was time for a change.
Jodie wanted something better for herself and her loved ones, the opportunity to earn a decent income and most importantly, she wanted to be able to better serve the needs of her clients. After years of working all over the UK with people from all walks of life, she came to the opinion that everyone had one thing in common: stress. Whether it came from their job or feeling over-worked and underpaid, she concluded that stress was one of the single biggest problems people faced.
To make matters worse, she discovered that people had neither the time nor the money for things they enjoy or for proper nourishment—very important things people need to help relieve stress.
It was a vicious cycle and Jodie wanted to find a way to change this.
Motivated by her renewed focus on helping others, she began searching for ways she could help people live lifestyles they believed were better. It wasn’t long before she found Isagenix while scrolling through her Facebook newsfeed.
It was a video titled “Youngest Millionaires in Their Company*.” Not one to usually click on those types of videos, she was nevertheless intrigued. Absorbed by what she had just watched, she started following her now sponsors on social media. What spoke to her, was how normal and humble they seemed and the fact that one of them had a similar past to herself as a massage therapist.
“Long story short, I followed the tracks to the Isagenix website. I was blown away by the results of real people, the way people expressed that the solutions had changed people’s lifestyles, both physically and financially,” Jodie explained.
Jodie and her partner Tyler ended up having a Zoom call with the leaders she had found on Facebook, and that is where it all started. They both knew that this was something that they not only wanted, but in their opinion needed, to be a part of.
“I’m so glad I found this company,” Jodie said. “Since getting started with Isagenix I feel like I’ve found the real me. I’ve gained my confidence back!”
Isagenix has offered a vehicle to live her purpose, and to do what she loves. With Isagenix she can work part-time alongside her holistic therapy, helping clients which she adores to do. She can now treat and help her clients because she wants to – not because she needs the money. She appreciates the flexibility of working both online, as well as offline and having the freedom to travel. She has enough ‘me time’, and through hard work, the income not to have to worry about bills.
“I just feel rewarded and most of all a part of a community where I can be my real self. I cannot wait to help more and more people with working with Isagenix, they are amazing and a gift to so many lives to come. Bring it on!” Jodie added.
