Network marketing, direct sales, even pyramid scheme… whatever you want to call it, if you believe in the products that you’re using, and they’re positively affecting your life, why wouldn’t you want to share it???
Last month, I joined an exciting health & wellness company called, “It Works” as an independent distributor. This 16-year old, debt-free company, is best known for their body contouring wraps, but they truly offer so much more. I had been looking for a way to lose some weight & also incorporate a healthier lifestyle that I had embraced while training for my 1st half marathon this past spring. I’d also been looking for a new side business, so when the 2 opportunities came up together, it certainly caught my attention.
I’ve sold other health-related products in the past with this same sales format. I signed up with Arbonne, but only truly loved a few of their items, which wasn’t enough to “tie me” to the company. I sold Silpada Designs for 5 years, & despite my love of jewelry & their beautiful pieces, a combination of the “home party” sales model & their inflated sterling silver prices just didn’t create the formula I needed to really succeed.
But this time around, something seems different. I want to get my hands on every single product! And I’m actually experiencing my own amazing results! I’ve lost 5lbs in my 1st month & and I have this new-found energy that’s empowering! In addition, I have an amazing team leader who’s there for me day or night, answers all my questions & sometimes even talks me off the ledge if need be! I feel lucky that she found me & was patient with me while I tried the products and slowly decided to dive in & become a distributor.
The It Works product line is diverse, but not overwhelming. The products are all-natural, plant-based, and designed to help in various facets of your life. Stress, weight gain, joint pain, trouble sleeping, wrinkles, stretch marks – all the things we always want to fix! And they’re affordable… nothing crazy that’s going to break the bank. To check out the company and the products for yourself, here’s the link to my web site: www.kristinmatteo.itworks.com
My personal “Triple Threat” is a combination of 3 products that I’ve been using since I started. They’re helping me to gradually lose weight, while gaining energy & providing my body with the nutrients it needs.
Greens on the Go – This is my favorite of all the It Works products! Each individual packet contains 8 servings of fruits and vegetables and a combination of over 52 nutrients & superfoods. Simply empty the little packet into a bottle of water, shake & go! I drink mine mid-morning or in the afternoon if I need a little boost. The Greens are available in 3 flavors: Berry (my favorite), Orange, & Chocolate (great mixed with milk or in a smoothie!) and come with 30 packets per box.
I recommend using the next two products together in regard to weight loss:
Ultimate Thermofit – This tablet, taken twice daily, boosts your metabolism with the super antioxidant, acai berry and a red hot pepper blend called Capsimax®. I take one with my breakfast & one with lunch to get my metabolic rate going!
Fatfighter – This carb inhibitor & fat blocker utilizes prickly pear cactus to naturally absorb some of the fats & carbs from your “less healthy” meals. I usually take the Fatfighter with dinner, as that tends to be my heaviest meal of the day and the one that could cause me the most damage 😉
Other products I love are the gentle, 2-Day Cleanse, the WOW – Wipe Out Wrinkles Cream, the Protein Powders (in Chocolate or Vanilla), and of course, the original Body Contouring Wraps & Defining Gel.
The best part of this business is that you can work it from anywhere… all you need is a cell phone! So check it out, contact me with ANY questions, and start thinking about what you’d like to try. And I promise not to stalk you… I’m just excited to share what these products, and this business opportunity, could potentially do for you!
And don’t worry, my love & passion for all things food-related has not gone astray… it’s just about finding the right balance & enjoying everything in moderation!
