I am enjoying interviewing professionals and mom bosses about their line of work or their side hustles. Today I am sharing an interview with It Works independent distributor, Carrie.
Tell us a little about yourself and your business. Why did you select it and how did you get started?
I sell health and wellness products including weight loss, skincare, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and oils. Our signature product us our wrap which helps to tighten tone and firm the skin! I started this after using a wrap and seeing personal results. I fell in love with the products and helping others. I choose this company as well because of their family values and core beliefs.
Describe what you do and what you sell for those of us not familiar with your line of work or product.
I work mostly through Facebook and other social media platforms posting my own results and sharing what I love about our products. I also host online and in-person parties and do one-on-one wrap appointments too. I spend time getting to know what my customers’ goals are and helping them reach these goals.
What are some of your favorite things about what you do?
I love the friendships I have made and the freedom I am gaining.
What are some challenges of this business?
Finding time while working a full-time career and raising two young children. But it works when you do.
For someone interested in what you do, can you share what to expect as far as earning potential and effort?
I started out slow but now do very well. I have a small team working with me and growing together. You make money in 5 different ways so there is unlimited growth potential. For me, it has allowed me to help pay for daycare and for a car.
What does it take for someone to get started with their own side hustle in your line of work?
It is $100 to join and $20 a month to stay active. With your startup fee of $100, you get a box of wraps which retails at $100 and your website for the month and training tools.
Anything else you would like to tell us about your business?
I have been with It Works Global for almost 3 years now and LOVE it! Not only has it helped me to physically get back into better shape but it has helped my family as well. Best decision I could have made.
