You just launched a new book, Manifesting Magic, in January, tell us about it!
Yes, Manifesting Magic: A 21-Day Guide to Harnessing the Magic of Life Through the Law of Attraction is my 13th full-length book publication and the 5th installment in the Manifesting Series. This book focuses on illuminating the science and psychology behind why and how manifestation works, along with practices to create new neural pathways n the brain that essentially trains the reader how to naturally and effortless manifest purposefully in all areas of their lives. The book was the featured read in January within The Infinite Power of You Bookclub, a book club for entrepreneurs to read and discuss personal development, and had glowing reviews from readers.
What inspired you to get started as an entrepreneur?
Looking back, I always had the entrepreneur bug, and I didn’t know it. Throughout my childhood, teens, and early adulthood, I was constantly coming up with ideas. As a child, I created an entire video-game sequel to my favorite video game. I wrote my first book when I was 16 (Fire Fury Freedom); however, it was not published for over a decade. When my mother hit menopause and suffered from hot flashes, I came up with an idea to create cooling bracelets. As a young adult, I began creating jewelry. None of these ideas mounted too much, and I hadn’t really considered myself to be an entrepreneur. They just seemed like good ideas that could be profitable to me.
In 2013, I had been working as a live in-store sales presenter. The job had gone sour for me after a shift in management, and by summer that year, I turned in my notice. At the time, I felt directionless. I knew I didn’t want to work long hours out of my home any longer, and I wanted to do something meaningful. I ended up joining a health & fitness MLM (MultiLevel marketing) company, however at the time, I didn’t even know what an MLM was. What I know was that working from home sounded incredibly freeing, that I was excellent at sales, and that I was dedicated to making it work. Over the years, my business evolved as I did and has become the diverse, multi-faceted corporation today.
What was your biggest struggle to get things going for your online business?
Oh, gosh… everything! Selling in a store is completely different than selling on social media. I failed in every way possible, and I think I made up several new ways to fail while I was at it. But that failure helped me to grow and learn what didn’t work, narrowing things down until I discovered what was working.
Was there a time you thought about giving up? What kept you from quitting?
Quitting was never a real option. However, there were certainly moments where throwing in the towel seemed easier. The first years of my business were a total uphill battle. I felt like I was pulling teeth to get every single customer sign up, putting in long hours, and seeing minimal financial returns. Despite those challenges, the idea of going back to work a job for someone else was much less appealing. I always knew my mission in life was to help change the way people think, and to do that. I knew I needed to create my own business and vision.
If you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself at the beginning of your entrepreneurship journey?
Master your mindset, and you will master your life. Strategy is important, but it is useless without the mindset that will allow you to implement those strategies. You must move through discomfort and grow into who you need to become to be successful.
