The Rock hasn't worked now in 11 months. I am working a part-time job doing medical reports again, started about a month ago, and that is going all right. I also started selling Jamberry about a month ago.
First, a little explanation. Jamberry nail wraps are vinyl wraps that are applied to your nails with heat and pressure. They are utterly adorable, last a long time without chipping, and I love having pretty nails. But if you know me pretty well, you might wonder what changed my mind into doing direct sales ever again.
In March, it seemed like about 10 of my online friends (who all know each other) all signed up at once. I hadn't even heard of them before and thought at the time, "Huh. Wonder what that's about." I quickly got overwhelmed with all of the Jamberry activity on my facebook feed and tuned it out.
Then. I saw Dr. Who wraps. Kiddo LOVES Dr. Who. I bought some of those. A good friend did a pedicure on me with HER wraps that she had bought around the same time in March. And another friend who sells them made an offer I couldn't refuse -- a sale.
I tried them. I fell in love. And there was no way in hell I was going to sign up to sell them. End of story.
Except, the one who offered the sale ... I know her, have known her online for about 6 years. And she mentioned how much she'd made the previous month. Knowing a bit about her, I thought, "Oh gosh ... if she can do this and make that kind of money, so can I." Especially because of the training that she and my sponsor have given me.
It's been a month. I am hitting milestones, landing my goals, making money, and having fun.
About 2 weeks in, I had the thought that, "Who would have thought stupid nail wraps would be an answer to a prayer?" And then? One of my recruits said the exact same thing about a week after that.
I'm grateful for the opportunity. I love these things, and I am way excited about them! I will never be offended if a friend tells me no or chooses not to buy this product or whatever.
