Today’s WAHM (Work-at-home-mom) feature is on Amber Draper-Skoog and her NuCerity International business!

Amber and her beautiful family!
Amber and her beautiful family!

Amber is a WAHM with 2 children, and it’s so awesome that her husband Jay does the business with her!! She has a 10 year old boy Ty,  and 8 year old girl, Alira.  She has worked in both health care as a health care aid with both seniors and people with disabilities as well as in education at the post secondary level as a learning strategist with people with disabilities. What she has found is people are amazing!!! Every single one of them!!! Amber has come to love NWM and direct sales as an industry/ business model. She sees it as the only equal opportunity model and the potential to support and empower someone to achieve their highest level of excellence is like no other industry she’s ever worked in. She believes your imagination and determination truly are the only limit here!!

Here is some Q&A with Amber!

Q) What is it about NuCerity that had you start your home business?

When I started with NuCerity I was looking for something as I had just quit my full time job at the college to homeschool my son who was having a lot of troubles at the time. What drew me in with NuCerity was that I didn’t already know dozens of people selling it already, in fact it was the first time I’d heard of it, and the product was not a me too or concoction made in a basement somewhere. It had been a medical product, tested and developed with government grants and the market to which it could be sold to was the largest market possible, anyone with skin as it was not just anti aging, but skin health and rejuvenation and it worked. Although it was nice to partner with a category creator in anti-aging as I knew it was a billion dollar industry and growing. Now all this was highly logical but the clincher was the people. Everyone I came in contact with genuinely wanted to support and help, even if they weren’t on each others teams. It was a true collaboration.

Q) Had you been in home business prior to starting your NuCerity business?

Never! And if anyone would have ever said I would end up in the industry I would have laughed. I was so uncomfortable with selling and money transactions that when my husband had his motorcycle shop I had to leave the room when he went over invoices with customers. Just being in the same room made me feel nauseous.

Q) What is the best benefit to you about working from home?

The flexibility!

Q) Looking back on how you have come along in your business, and knowing all that you know now, is there anything that you would do differently?

Not take things personal, listen more and talk less. I had a coach once explain it to me this way. If you were a server and offered someone a cup of coffee and they said no it would be ridiculous for you to walk away feeling rejected or as if your coffee wasn’t good enough. It would be equally ridiculous to run around giving everyone high fives and jumping up and down with excitement if they said yes. ITS A CUP OF COFFEE!! Some people will like it, some won’t and it’s got nothing to do with the person offering it or serving it. The same goes with simply asking, if you never ask if a person would like a coffee you’ll never know so it never hurts to ask.

Q) We all have stress working from home with kids, do you have any tips on how to a) manage your work time vs family time and b) how to deal with the stress?

Have clear communication and expectations set out with your family about what you are doing and what you need from them, time, quiet ect. Also have a schedule so you keep the balance and your family knows you will have time for them too. After all isn’t that why many of us start this journey? Don’t loose sight of your why!
Also make sure to take time for you.

Q) Has your family and friends always supported you throughout your journey?

Nope…. In fact many thought I was certifiably nuts!!! Within one month I seemingly recklessly abandoned social norms. I quit a “stable job” with benefits and pension, pulled my son from public education to homeschool and started a career in network marketing. I’m sure they were close to running an intervention. What saved me was likely the fact that my friends and family know me as a person who just does what needs to be done with little to no regard for boundaries imposed by others opinions so the drastic change wasn’t altogether out of character, but they did watch closely and soon they saw that our family was thriving as a result of all the changes.

Q) What is your favourite NuCerity product?

I actually have two. Skincerity because it rid me of my lifelong battle with acne and it saves me from my painful sunburns that are an unavoidable reality with my pale skin. I have not peeled since I started with NuCerity! Which is a big deal for me! I also rarely if ever wear foundation which use to be a staple in my daily routine. My second favorite is the rejuvenating barrier. I have albinism so my skin is sensitive to light and chemicals. Rejuvenating barrier is a nutrient rich barrier for my skin all day long and I love how my skin feels with it on! It also keeps icky sunscreen out of my pores. Which is awesome!

Q) What is your favourite Marketing Strategy?

I love people!!! I love meeting them and learning about them and if I can meeting an unmet need they have. So my favorite strategy is one on one and referrals.

Q) What is it about you and your team that should cause someone to want to join on with you in their own NuCerity Business?

That’s a tough question. There are many amazing teams in NuCerity it’s actually difficult at times to distinguish one from another though as we all work together. What I can offer is a team that believes every person has value and every person has something to offer and contribute. I also know we are a team that will move mountains to work with and support someone willing to work. I get more excited seeing my team achieve their goals than anything else. Seeing people reach their potential is the best! It’s whys I lived for when I worked in education and in health care, and as a mom, it’s my passion and it’s what my entire team works for.

Q) Any words of advice for moms just starting out in Direct Sales and home business?

Remember your why and have fun. Do what you say you will, and be willing to let some sales go. My husband who’s a mechanic used to say there is money in every customer and sometimes it’s in firing a customer. The same is true in what we do. Done customers and distributors aren’t worth it. We are not in the business if reviving the dead and trying to will kill your inner light and drive for what you do. Foster a culture in your teams and customers. Always come from a place of love but don’t be walked on. It’s okay to politely let it go.

I love what Amber stands for, and she just seems like such a great woman! She sounds like she would be a awesome team leader. If you are looking to start your own NuCerity Business, or to shop her AMAZING product line, make sure to visit Amber’s page HERE!

WAHM Feature – Vicki Carr!

Today’s WAHM feature is on my beautiful new friend Vicki Carr! Vicki is in the UK and runs her own Arbonne business.  I was fortunate enough to get to meet Vicki on Twitter! Since then I’ve been able to have a nice chat with her on Skype, and she is just such a wonderful, down to earth, caring woman and mom, I’m so fortunate to have met her!

After talking with Vicki, she is the perfect example of someone who just loves to help people. You can tell that her true passion is that she is changing peoples lives, and solving their problems. The fact that she gets to run a successful business doing what she loves, is an awesome result of doing what you are passionate about. Vicki deserves success because her heart is truly in the right place. She isn’t chasing success, it’s finding her because she puts others first.

Here is some Q&A with Vicki to get to know her better 🙂

Q) What was it that made you decide to start your own home business in Arbonne?

As my youngest child is about to start school, I was looking for a job that would allow me to still do the whole ‘mummy’ duties but I was struggling! My partner has a stressful job with ridiculous working hours so my aim is to take some pressure off him financially so we can all live a better lifestyle together. A friend knew this was the case for me so she came over for a coffee to tell me about a business she had just started using botanically based health and wellbeing products inspired by nature, great discounts available and the business side has fantastic perks and an unlimited earning potential which made my ears prick up instantly! She brought a couple of things for me to try and I was hooked! I saw results within a day….I had to start my own business!

Q) What is your favourite thing about Arbonne as a company?

The thing that stood out to me about arbonne is the whole ‘green’ philosophy. All the products are ph correct, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, vegan approved, cruelty free,   are formulated without chemical fragrances, dyes, animal products or by-products, mineral oils or parabens which until I did some research, had no idea what these were but was shocked at what I found out!! The clinical results are amazing and these products really do give results! I’ve never used anything quite like it. I also like that they have a 45day money back guarantee. As much as I and a lot of others love these products, they are not for everyone so this is great for everyone!

Q) What has been the most empowering moment for you as a work from home mom?

 I love the fact that I can still be here with my kids, have so much fun with my job and children and they will see that work doesn’t always have to be boring and you can be whatever you want to be if you just put your mind to it. Like anyone would, I am enjoying making more money but just as much, I am enjoying helping others look and feel better too! I love the feeling that I have helped someone. My friend has struggled with her skin since she was a teenager, has always been very paranoid about it, would never go out the house without trowel full of thick makeup! She has been using arbonne products for a few months now and has seen a massive change in her skin. She is glowing inside and out! I love to see this! Also another of my clients son is allergic to dust and gets terribly dry cracked skin. He has used endless amounts of creams from the doctors, nothing seemed to work so well but then discovered arbonne, and his skin is now under control. Again, this feeling that I am helping people is amazing. 

Q) You have a beautiful family, do you have any advice for moms struggling to work from home with kids?

This business can be done by anyone at any education level. It can be started alongside an everyday job, part time or full time. Your success is down to you so you must ask yourself,  what you want out of life as the opportunity is here! Anything is possible. Arbonne training and support system is superb. I have met some amazing people through this, who I can turn to if I have any queries or anything. Likewise, I am here for them. I am wanting to help others become successful! 

Q) If you couldn’t go without one product from Arbonne, which one would that be?

Arbonne CC Cream
Arbonne CC Cream

 There really is so many products that I now couldn’t do without but if I could only choose one…it would have to be arbonne cc cream. It just gives a really fresh, healthy glow whenever you need it. Make up that is good for your skin, A great everyday product! 

Q) If there’s one message you could get out there to all moms and dads, what would it be?

 I tend to use a lot of quotes which some people might find ‘cheesy’ but they really do speak volumes…..’you can earn money but when time is spent, it’s gone forever!’ Be who you want to be, life begins at the end of your comfort zone,  take chances and don’t give up on your dreams x

Dream with Arbonne

As Vicki’s business keeps growing in the UK, I can see her doing amazing things and can’t wait to hear her story unfold! If you are thinking about starting your own Arbonne business, be sure to get in touch with Vicki! Anyone who gets to work with this beautiful lady is blessed!

WAHM Feature – Kristie Mackie!

Today’s WAHM Feature is on Kristie Mackie, a beautiful mom and Vemma Home Business owner. 🙂

WAHM Kristie Mackie and her beautiful family!
WAHM Kristie Mackie and her beautiful family!

This post is near and dear to my heart. Kristie Mackie is not only an amazing woman, wife and mom, but she is the reason I’m in the Network Marketing industry 🙂 She decided to offer to share with me an amazing product, which ended up turning into a complete change in my life. Without her decision to email me one day, I would never have embarked on this life changing journey. She has got me through a lot of tough times this last year, and heard some pretty vile things come out of my mouth! She is an amazing friend and support in my life, so naturally, she got the first WAHM Feature 😉

A little about Kristie, our Q&A:

Q) Besides how much you like the products, what was your reason for starting your own home business?

A) I really figured I had nothing to lose! I was investing in my health, which I would have done anyway, and my intention was not to create a business in the beginning, my dream came a bit later after I had used the products for a short time and realized their benefits. In that respect, I figured if I could supplement my husband’s income and work from home so I could be with my children, why not!

Q) What are the best benefits of having a home based business?

A) You set your own hours, you dream and work as much or as little as you choose.

Q) What has been your greatest achievement since starting your home business?

A) My greatest achievement has been meeting inspiring people like Linda Proctor, Meghan McCurdy and Troy Brown! People who are inspirational that I would have never been in touch with if not for my home business. Inspiring myself and others as well – I’ve done some seminars, meetings and one-on-ones that honestly I’m fairly proud of!!

Q) What is your favourite thing about running your own home business?

A) My favourite thing about running my own home business is the freedom to do the work that I choose for my own benefit. No boss, no office…. my work goes with me and I can create momentum whenever I like!! This means I get more one-on-one time with my family because I set my own schedule.

Here are Kristie’s Before and After pictures from using Vemma and Chris Powell’s bod.e line! Pretty amazing, and girl looks goooood!

WAHM Feature: Paulina Jojnowicz! Beautiful on the inside and out!!

Networking on Social Media is amazing because it allows you to meet awesome people. For me, I just LOVE meeting moms working toward their dreams! I was lucky enough to come across Paulina Jojnowicz on Facebook, and she just happened to be in my city! We got to meet and I’m sure we will be great friends, she is an amazing woman. In the short 15 minutes I had with her I learned a TON about products and chemicals, she knows her stuff when it comes to making sure only the best is going into the bodies of those we love!!

Paulina’s Linaclean Skincare is honestly amazing. I’ve spent a lot of money on creams, and this stuff knocks everything out of the ballpark! As I type this, I’m so moisturized and smell AMAZING.

Or if you’re looking for natural remedies for eczema (which I have been for 7 years!!) Linaclean works wonders on eczema!

A little bit about Paulina!

Q: What inspired you to create your own organic products?

A: I started researching and realized that most of my skincare contained harmful chemicals. It really scared me and I wanted to find a healthy alternative to my skincare regime.

Q: What has been the most empowering thing for you when it comes to launching your own products?

A: I love the fact that everything I put on my skin has no harmful side effects. I’m proud to tell my customers that they can feel good about putting my product on their skin without the worry of potential side effects.

Q: Which product is your favourite and why?

A: My fave is my Shea body butter. Its very versatile..from face to body to baby care..it helped many of my customers with eczema..the natural way.
