Network Marketing… What it REALLY is.

People for some reason think network marketing is a scam or pyramid scheme ((I’ll get to that in a minute)) and have a negative outlook about it. Well whether you want to admit it or not, YOU network market everyday, unknowingly. Example: YOU share on social media things you purchase or places you’re going and what do people do? They ASK you about it! Where did you get those or how was your trip? I’m thinking about going! 

Lets back up and really quick look at what network marketing is…. Network Marketing, as defined by Sarah Robbins, “It is a model that takes ordinary people like me and helps them achieve extraordinary results! … Network marketing provides a turnkey business where you start at a low-cost, it carries little to no risk, and there’s no experience necessary to begin. It carries many incredible benefits such as: FREEDOM & FLEXIBILITY, FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITY, FUN & FRIENDSHIP, and FABULOUS OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH! Rock Your Network Marketing Business, Sarah Robbins. 

Network-Marketing-Success

Who wouldn’t want all of those things and then some! With Plexus these things ARE possible! Many people think of it as a gym membership with a contract, everyone knows those are a PAIN to get out of. It’s not like this at all with Plexus. You sign up and end up not wanting to do the business, then don’t do it. You have no monthly quotas, you aren’t required to host parties and you don’t have to buy everything upfront to have inventory, customers go directly to your website and purchase there. It’s that easy. Too many network marketing companies require way too much money upfront from their ambassadors/consultants, but not Plexus. 

Lets look at why Plexus is NOT a ‘Pyramid Scheme’…. 

  1. First off, pyramid schemes are illegal! 
  2. Low buy in cost, $34.95 for a year and that includes your website for the year
  3. you CAN surpass the person that signed you up by rank
  4. Plexus actually has products that people need & want, meaning they have value
  5. There’s NO contract, you can walk away anytime you want 
  6. No mandatory/minimum purchase 
  7. 60 day money back guarantee 

So yes, when you sit there are try to tell me ‘oh it’s just another pyramid scheme’, I’m legit rolling my eyes at you in my mind. 

For me, personally, I have been in network marketing almost two years. I have experienced flexibility, REAL financial opportunity, lifelong friends and growth. What I love about Plexus is that THE COMPANY recognizes their ambassadors for their success for almost everything! It’s incredible. My husband and I have been blessed by this company and we are truly grateful for the opportunity that network marketing has given us. So the next time you see something about network marketing, don’t think negatively about it. You have just been educated! 

Vitalbiome Vs. ProBio 5

So many people have asked why do we have two probiotics? Well they are both very different and play very different rolls in our bodies. I took notes at convention so I’ll share what I wrote. 

Vitalbiome

Vitalbiome is one of Plexus’s newest products that was released in June 2017 at Convention. What is it? It is a true probiotic by raising levels of the 8 most beneficial strains of probiotics in your microbiome ( your gut basically ). Vitalbiome has been clinically shown in handling mood, stress and anxiety as well as a better immune system, relaxation and helps with GI issues/dysbiosis

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH VITALBIOME — > Since taking it I, and even my husband, have noticed that I am more relaxed about things and am not so stressed out and anxious. I started taking it the second week of June. 

 

ProBio 5

Probio 5 has been around when I started and the formula hasn’t changed. It is literally one of the best probiotics you can get yours hands on. What is it? Probio 5 is ALL about the enzymes in our bodies. It’s primary goal is to basically get in your gut and kill off all the bad stuff (yeast/candida) so that the good stuff can do its job. If we don’t kill off the bad then the good bacteria cant flourish.  

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH PROBIO 5 — > I have been using ProBio 5 since I started back in October 2015 and I’ll be honest…. I’m a teacher and my first year teaching I was sick ALL the time. Literally got the Flu for the first time, several migraines throughout the year and sinus infections galore. My second year teaching is when I started using it and I wasn’t sick the rest of the year. To this day I haven’t been near as sick, now I’m not saying YOU’LL NEVER GET SICK, but it has helped tremendously. I think this would be beneficial to anyone who works with kiddos. 

 

So in closing, Probio 5 DOES NOT replace Vitalbiome but instead think of them as sisters. They work together to make sure that your get is getting all that it needs to flourish. Think of a lawn, you need to WEED (probio 5) it and get rid of the bad things in your yard (gut). Then you need to SEED (vitalbiome) your yard (gut) so that your yard looks good and flourishes. 

The new Slim ain’t no JOKE!

I posted this on Facebook about a week ago and it took a lot for me to do it. I wondered, would people be negative? Would people see the difference? Am I imagining what I see in my reflection today! So I went for it. All the post said was “This new Slim ain’t no joke” just like the blog title. The response I got was HUGE! I was honestly really surprised at the response I received.

19225997_10213341785559696_7206009515043080249_n

I have been using Plexus products Since October 2015, specifically the Triplex (Original Slim, Pro Bio 5 and Bio Cleanse). Yes I saw results on the original Slim and it was great BUT this new Slim is a game changer. After two months of using it, my clothes fit different and inches were gone. I can’t tell you weight loss since I don’t own a scale! But pictures speak a thousand words! For differences between the original slim and the new slim go to my previous blog post here.

Now, I want to share this with all of my readers! We are having a 7 Day Slim Challenge starting July 10. All you need to do this is a 7 day Slim trial pack that’s only $24.95.

7 Day Slim Trial Pack

I was told I was Obese…

body_issues_featured

Yesterday I went to the doctor just for my annual check up. Everything came back normal, praise Jesus, but something was on my chart that had never been there. My chart had the word “OBESE” on it. OBESE! Let’s think about this word for a minute…. when you Google that word here is the definition: “grossly fat or overweight”. So now I’m in a category of being ‘grossly fat’? Do you know how damaging that is to a person? Someone who has never been told she was obese, even when she was larger than she is now, and to be labeled that? Yesterday, that rocked my world completely. I called my mom sobbing over what I had just seen. For someone who had started their weight loss journey at a size 16, constantly worrying about how she looked and what she ate to now being a 10/12, having so much more confidence, and to be told she was obese after all the hard work? That kind of stuff makes you want to go and hide under a rock. I let it consume my thoughts for about an hour then I realized, the word obese does not define me and who I am. A single word isn’t my reality nor will it ever be. That’s what’s wrong in today’s society. You go over a certain pant size, your ‘fat’ or ‘big’. There are these unrealistic and unattainable ways society THINKS women should look. No wonder there are so many body image issues! So no, I am not going to be defined as ‘obese’. I define myself and I follow what God puts before me. Not some bracket. I will continue to push myself to meet MY personal goal and I’ll do that on Prayer, Plexus, consistency and pushing myself.

Where do I even start! Plexus Convention was AMAZING. The theme this year was BELIEVE and that’s exactly what it did for me. In my previous blog posts I talked about wanting to quit Plexus. I didn’t believe in it or myself anymore. With speakers like Carrie Wilkerson, Les Brown, Aimee Darling, Sara Marble, Michelle Thomas and Helen McFadden, believing in yourself isn’t hard to do! They are so so inspiring. Carrie Wilkerson  had a story that really hit home with me and it was about our beliefs. She talked about how our beliefs can become dangerous because our belief becomes out truth. Her example, she BELIEVED that she couldn’t wear white because it made her look bigger, so she only wore black. I used to have a belief that I looked horrible, overweight and not like other people. It wasn’t until recently that my belief changed. Our biggest obstacle is ourselves. She shared with us the ABC method.

  • A – Arrest it / arrest the beliefs that we believe are true
  • B – Betray it / expose something for what it is
  • C – Correct it / make a plan and correct it

We need to believe that something different will happen! I just loved her stories, encouragement that I was able to relate to her.

Convention also helped me better understand my business and what it is that I, as a leader, need to do. I truly believe that Convention is something all ambassadors should go to, it’s just so inspiring. Plus you get to meet all those amazing people you’re Facebook friends with and form a REAL friendship with them.

Let’s briefly look at NEW PRODUCTS!!!! During convention they released TWO new products, both have which been CLINICALLY STUDIED!!!! So you know they are legit. (More in depth blog post to come)

 

There’s literally so much I could blog about but I am going to break the blog up into several smaller posts to be on the look out! Questions about Vitalbiome or X-Factor Plus? Hit the contact button up top and I’ll respond!

Going GOLD!!!!

057fe1b4c9bd7fc679041276d795e942

The title gives the ending away but lets back up to January 2017 for a minute. In January I wanted to QUIT. The business side of Plexus was just becoming more and more frustrating for me and seemed more like a chore than a passion. I reached out, sent samples, and nothing. There was no growth for months, I wasn’t being a good example of a leader for my team and I had given up. I was ready to talk to my up line, Sally, I just wasn’t sure what I was going to tell her because she had believed in me so much. I talked to my husband about it and prayed and prayed over my Plexus business and what God wanted me to do with it. I waited until he finally told me not to quit. He had a plan for me and I needed to be patient. Let me tell you, patience it not my strong suit but God needed me to be so I had to. Fast forward to April, this was the month I knew in my gut things were about to change. My team added some awesome new ambassadors that had hit the ground running! Towards the end of the month I HIT GOLD! I was beyond floored and excited. Something that I didn’t feel was attainable for me, was done! It was done in His timing and in His plan and there was a lesson to be learned. I had to be there for my team, I had to be their leader, set the example. I had to trust in Gods plan and know he had my back. So moral of the story, DON’T QUIT! When you feel like quitting, pray. Pray for guidance, trust in His plan for you, trust me, he’s got one!

Plexus Accelerator

My personal experience with Accelerator — When I started Plexus back in October 2015, I started with the Triplex and Accelerator. I’ve been using it ever since. My first three months I had lost 12 pounds and several inches around my waist. I started at a size 16 and had dropped to a 14, currently a size 10/12 (depending on the store, we all know the struggle!). The one thing that really stood out to me with the Accelerator was that my anxiety and depression had started to dwindle. My testimony with my anxiety will have to be another blog post for another day, stay tuned!

Plexus Compensation Plan, Like No Other!

You read the title right, Plexus has a compensation plan like no other. I truly believe their compensation plan sets them apart from “other” companies. Plus their products are legit. So lets dig into their compensation plan a little further. (This post also by no means is bashing other companies nor am I going to compare the Plexus compensation plan to others, this post is just to share how Plexus treats and values their ambassadors)

18527722_10100110690413143_7114066106941616875_n

So above is an ambassadors average annual income. This info is info that has been released by the company so no made up numbers here. How nice would it be to have residual income like this. Think about the things you could pay off! So not only do you get paid by ‘rank’ but you also get bonuses. BONUSES YA’LL! That means you could get paid once a week if you get it right. Plus you get rank advancement bonuses. So for example, when I ranked to Silver Ambassador Plexus gave me a bonus, when I ranked up to Gold Ambassador Plexus gave me a bigger bonus. Eventually you’ll get to Emerald and uhm get a PLEXUS LEXUS!!! WHAT! Plus a paid vacay by Plexus to Hawaii. Who wouldn’t want that?

11 Ways to get Paid: 

  1. Preferred Customer Bonuses – this means anytime a preferred customer places and order, you get a bonus anywhere from $5 – $22 from their orders.
  2. Retail Rewards Commission – Ambassadors can earn up to 25% of their personal volume. 100 – 499 personal volume – 15%, 500 and up 25%.
  3. Retail Rewards Override Commission – you basically get 5% earning from your level ones who are commission qualified.
  4. Business Building Bonus – when your new ambassador orders a welcome pack you get a bonus anywhere from $7 – $25 if not more, depending on what they get.
  5. Achievement Bonuses – this is what I was talking about when you rank up as an ambassador up to Sr. Ruby. Rank up to Silver-  $100 bonus, Gold – $250 bonus, Sr. Gold – $350, Ruby – $500 and Sr. Ruby – $750. Pretty AWESOME!
  6. Fast Start Achievement – what this means is if you fast track gold or higher within your first 30 days you get a bonus.
  7. Plexus Points – I have come to find the points is where ambassadors make their money. The points are everything! For each ambassador on your down line through a certain amount of levels you get points anywhere from 1 point to 5 points. Each point is worth so much at the end of month. So for example, you’re a Gold Ambassador and you have 135 points and each pay point is $2.11, just from points you’d earn about $285.
  8. Emerald Pool Bonus – this is for Emerald ambassadors. What this means is that Emerald ambassadors receive 3% of the company’s commissionable volume each month, assuming you are commission qualified.
  9. Sapphire Pool Bonus – this is for Sapphire Ambassadors. Not only do they also get the Emerald Pool Bonus but they also get another 1% of the company’s commissionable volume.
  10. Diamond Pool Bonus – Diamond is the highest rank with Plexus and you get bonuses from all 3 pools (Emerald, Sapphire and Diamond)
  11. Diamond Re-Entry – Yup, you can do it all over again and be a double diamond! It has been done!

Plus when you reach Emerald you get a white Plexus Lexus and the trip to Hawaii and when you reach Diamond you get a black Plexus Lexus.

To sum it up, the Plexus Compensation Plan is no joke and the best out there hands down. Want a more in depth read? Check the link below! Any questions, feel free to hit that contact button!
