Throughout our relationship we’ve been making decisions together; one of the most important life decisions was when we decided we were ready to have children. We wanted to be a family that spent quality time together, and we knew that wouldn’t be easy without flexible work hours. So we decided to take a closer look at what we were passionate about – and that was nutrition, fitness and being a positive influence on others. Here is a step-by-step approach to how we decided to take a closer look at the Herbalife Nutrition business opportunity:

 

Step 1: Be aware that there are different options

It’s not easy to think outside the box! We were caught up in what we knew – that is working for an employer with little flexibility. However, we realized that our friends who were Herbalife Nutrition independent distributors had the flexibility to work where they wanted and spend quality time with their kids while working the Herbalife Nutrition business opportunity. That inspired us to get out of our comfort zone.

 

Step 2: Be confident to follow your own path

One of our biggest challenges when we started this business was our family. They are very traditional and feared that not having a 9 to 5 office job meant some risk for us. We understood their concern, however, we wanted to be our own bosses. We knew that if we were committed to our business and put in the hard work and dedication that were needed, things would work for us.

 

Step 3: Believe in what you do

We have experienced –first hand and with our customers– the changes that good nutrition, regular exercise and a supportive community can bring to your life. We are excited about it and it shows! We are not making a cold market sale; we are sharing real experiences and making a connection with our customers on an emotional level.

 

Step 4: Let people get to know you through social media

Using platforms such as Instagram opens a window into our life and people feel more comfortable getting in touch, because they feel like they know us. We share our meals, our accomplishments and the results we have provided for our customers. We also use group chats for motivation and education; if customers or distributors have questions, we provide the right information very quickly and that helps to keep people engaged. We let them know that we are here for them.

 

Step 5: Be grateful

Now that we have a beautiful daughter, we value more than ever the flexibility that the Herbalife Nutrition business opportunity gives us. With the ability to set our own schedule, we’re able to work hard on the business while spending quality time together. It’s really rewarding to be able to do so while getting to know so many people and helping them improve their lives through good nutrition.

 

We are proud of the business we’ve built through our use of social media. Every day we are fulfilling our purpose to make our community healthier and happier – and that is something to be proud of.
