If you are here reading this post, it might be because you too are looking for something that makes your soul happy, especially when it comes to business. We all have obligations to ourselves and to our families and we all have to earn a living, however, not everyone has the privilege of loving what they do for a living. If you do, congrats, you are part of a lucky group of people! If you do not love what you are doing for a living, or are simply looking for a fun way to earn income, you are in the right place.
I have been part of many MLM (multi-level marketing) companies in the past - health and wellness, beauty products, empowerment etc...and I am still part of a couple and will continue to be. I am of the belief, that you don't have to only choose one company. If you love products from different companies, why not use them and make money promoting them, as long as of course, they are not in direct competition (ie: Avon vs. Mary Kay, for example.) That would be counterproductive to your sales approach.
I have for years, enjoyed network marketing and was doing it from home. I had been a stay at home mom for the last five years, ever since I was diagnosed with a brain tumor (and subsequent brain surgery and recovery,) however, as we all know, life goes on and so do financial obligations, so I had to go out and get a "real" job. I loved being home for my kids and working on my blog, but I felt I had no choice but to help supplement my family's income and went back to the work force. I started in a field I had never been in before - hospitality but struggled to survive the daily grind, you know, things like: traffic, supervisors, limited lunch time, low-pay, lack of flexibility, reduced time with family...all things you have to deal with when you are out in the corporate world. Don't get me wrong, it was a nice place with great people, but as they say, "the struggle was real."
While, I can say that hospitality is exciting and is quite a fast-paced environment and it never really gets boring, the hours and the pay are dismal - mainly, the hours. I mean, I knew going in that the hours were crazy, but I just couldn't make it work in my home life. Not being around as much for my kids, missing their activities, their sporting events and not being able to be there to help them with homework, problems etc... It made me feel helpless. I know many people do it - working the late hours, weekends, coming home at midnight, preparing for 6a.m. shifts, low pay, but that is just not my "cup of tea!"
Which brings me back to: "Do what makes your soul happy!" Life is too short to be miserable at work or at home. I know this first hand from my own personal journey with health issues. When you are working in something you don't like and you are just "surviving" day in and day out but then, you are faced with a possible death scenario, it totally changes your perspective on life completely! Of course, it is not necessary to be so dramatic or to go through a life-changing event like I did. It is important though, to try to understand what our mission in life is, to understand that we all have a purpose here on Earth and our goal is to find that purpose and to fulfill it! It is our obligation to learn and to grow as human beings and to find what makes us happy and along the way, help others as well. We all have different talents, different likes and different missions. The key to success is to find the answer to those questions and pursue them.
I decided that I wanted to walk away from that "corporate job," and pursue what I have ALWAYS wanted, which is to continue in network marketing, work from home (online) and be there again for my kids, as they venture through their academic and social journey's. It doesn't mean, in the future I might not go out and work again in corporate, if I find something I love, but the truth is, that I have decided to change my mindset and focus on the NOW. Focus on what it is that I want to make work ri ght now and go for it! I think that when you are passionate about something, it overflows to your customers (clients) and they feel that energy and also get excited about the product or service you are offering.
While, I am not encouraging anyone to go out and quit their jobs or ignore their financial responsibilities, I am promoting that you follow what your passion is and do what makes your soul happy!
For the LONGEST time, I think one of my biggest obstacles of why I hadn't had success before was because I never really defined what it was that I wanted! I mean I blogged for years and did some affiliate advertising but I could never figure out what I really wanted to do that would earn income. That is what YOU need to decide - what is that you REALLY want to do?
What do you love? What do you enjoy doing and what are you good at? Do you love shopping? Do you love fashion? Do you love being online? Do you enjoy talking with people and networking? Well, if you do, then this is going to be perfect for you!
For years, I had created my own designs on t-shirts via other online platforms and I posted on my own social media but it never really took off. I also LOVE being online. I love branding. I love network marketing and I love to be creative. And I especially love soulful style! That is why when I came across J.Elizabeth Boutique, I fell in love with the concept.
J.Elizabeth Boutique is a multi-level marketing company that enables you to own a home-based business with little to no risk and unlimited potential. It is structured to allow you (the online boutique owner) to do your own marketing and sales. Plus, not only is the structure of the company amazing, their t-shirt designs are made of great quality and their motto of "Do More of What Makes Your Soul Happy" is my absolute favorite!
I also came across another line on their main website that says, "We don't meet people by accident, they are meant to cross our paths for a reason." I whole-hardheartedly believe in this! I believe that we are all brought together to learn from each other, to learn what we want and don't want, whether in person or online - we are all connected! I believe we should all support one another, empower each other and make a positive difference in the world. If everyone practiced this, the world would definitely be a happier place!
So, to answer what you came looking for, in order to join to become an online boutique owner, it is very simple. You just pay a fee per month ($9.99) to have your own site/business page. You get to choose whatever name you want for your own boutique (pending its availability) and then it is tied together with the inventory of J.Elizabeth and boom - you are a boutique business owner!
You also get amazing mentoring from your sponsor (which, for YOU, could be ME, if you decide to go this route.) Oh, and you might see a section that says choose "J.Elizabeth Starter Kit" for $65 but for now - that is optional! You do not have to choose that option. It is a welcome starter kit that brings J.Elizabeth logo shirts in a box.
All you have to do is sign up where it says "COMPLETE ENROLLMENT," with your info and pay $9.99 fee to keep your website up and running on a monthly basis - that's it! You have to be 18 years and older and have an active working credit card. It doesn't get any easier than that! Plus you are going to love what you do, especially, when your friends and family start coming to you without you trying, asking to buy some of the cool t-shirts and accessories in stock!
of my favorite parts of being an online boutique owner is the posting
on all my social media platforms. Everyone loves cute and fun t-shirts
and accessories, so you are promoting something people will love and
want - especially when the quality is good! All shirts from our
boutique are D.T.G (Direct to Garment) print, which means it will last and
not crack or fade. Also all shirts are machine-washable. Quality and Cute = perfect combination!
These trendy designs (and accessories) are already made for you. You don't have to do the designing or worry about inventory or overhead - it's all done for you! You just have to do the promoting and selling yourself. Obviously, you can't just sign up and expect it to happen overnight by itself. Like any business, you have to work it!
What I can tell you is that, it is extremely rewarding to work at something I love and have the support anytime I need it. My sponsor (Jess) is awesome! Anytime, I had questions, she responded immediately and steered me in the right direction! There are tons of resources, especially via YouTube with informational and empowering videos. J.Elizabeth is also working on re-vamping their website, that should be up and running in the next few weeks, for a better customer experience, so that is exciting!
