Fight off those fears


My background is in admin, a role I fell into from school because I thought it was the only thing I was good at, and I had lost all my confidence through a difficult marriage which led to an unpleasant divorce. All of a sudden I had become a single mum whose life revolved around looking after my three incredible children.

My life transformed after I went to a friend’s party. I listened to the Forever business opportunity and realised that this could be a way to earn a few extra hundred pounds – I liked the idea of being able to afford a holiday abroad. Despite the incentive, I still held many fears regarding signing up: I have never been good at selling, and the thought of standing up in front of people at a launch made me feel sick. However, I was at a point in life where my children had grown up and flown the nest, and I longed to go abroad, but my salary just didn't stretch to this.

I finally decided to ignore my concerns and sign up, and with full support from my partner, children, family and friends, I have managed to sell products, hold launches and grow a retail business, even though 4CCs seemed unachievable in the first couple of months. These achievements are a product of sheer determination and a whole lot of practice! I would practice everywhere: in the car, the bath, the mirror... on my children, friends and family. I was sick of hearing my voice – but it worked.

After about four months, people started to see my new-found confidence and I was surprised when they asked to join my team. This is where the excitement really begun and before I knew it I had eight team members, had achieved my level one and two 4CCs pin, had progressed to Assistant Manager, and mentored one of my team to Supervisor. 

Now I wake up excited every day, and although I squeeze the role in around my full-time job, I can't wait to get to a point where I can earn enough to re-evaluate this situation. I really wish someone had told me about Forever years ago!
