Jemma and Lara are proving that teamwork is the way to succeed with an Isagenix business! Despite both living hectic lives, they’ve both just rank advanced to Crystal Director. They are now paving the way for other women to build businesses in the pockets of their lives, and they’re just getting started!
What attracted you to Isagenix?
Lara: I loved the products so I started sharing them with my friends and family, and I started building a business very casually. The moment it changed was at Celebration because after hearing success stories and learning more about the business, I finally realized how much potential there is with Isagenix! We both started building intentionally from there.
Jemma: I joined because I was so excited about the business opportunity! I was previously a Mummy Fit instructor, but I just wasn’t feeling fulfilled. Plus there’s only a certain amount of money you can earn as an instructor. Now with Isagenix, I get to change people’s lives and I even get paid for it*! I’ve only been with Isagenix 11 months, but I’ve grown so much as a person in that time.
How did you rank advance to Crystal Director?
Lara: We’re in a huge momentum at the moment and people are seeing how much we’re growing, so that in itself makes people want to join us because they want to be a part of it! Leaders have to go first, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.
Jemma: We’re always doing events, we go to Heather Atkinson’s training most Wednesdays who is an Isagenix Millionaire, and we do sip and samples to help grow our customer base. We can put barriers up for ourselves by saying no one would be interested in Isagenix, but you never know what another person is thinking! You just have to make a list of everyone you know who may be interested, and reach out to them without being scared.
What’s the one thing you’d tell someone who’s starting an Isagenix business?
Lara: I always say that Isagenix is a personal development platform with a paycheck attached! Isagenix helps you grow, but you just have to decide if this is the right vehicle for you and if you can get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Two and a half years ago I didn’t even answer the phone, but now I’m talking to new people every day. The personal growth in the past year has been huge, but you just have to be ready to take that leap!
Jemma: As a team you can achieve so much more than when you’re working on your own – every leader has been lifted up by another person, which just proves the key to success in Isagenix is working as a team.
What do you love about Isagenix?
Lara: I love the community; I get on really well with everyone in my team and I’m even going to be a bridesmaid for one of them! I also love seeing everyone grow and develop together.
Jemma: For me it’s the personal development. People go from being lost in life, to having a purpose – it’s so much more than money. It gives me a reason to be a better me.
What’s your advice to anyone just starting?
Jemma: Everybody can learn the skills to be a really good network marketer, you just need to immerse yourself and surround yourself with positive people. Just like any business, you need work hard, you have to make sacrifices and you have to be dedicated.
Lara: There’s always going to be people with negative opinions, so even if people aren’t supportive, just strive on regardless and believe in what you’re doing!
What are your next steps?
Jemma: I’m about to start my own Mummy Fit business, which will hopefully also help me grow my business with Isagenix. Our next goal is to both become Crystal Executive and create some managers within our teams.
Lara: In a years’ time, I want to be an inspiration for others to show them that if I can do it, so can they!
