Through the power of social media, Blogless Behavior was able to connect with Amanda Morales, an entrepreneur who is building her small business through the power of network marketing.
So without further ado, Blogless Behavior is please to present to some and introduce to others, Amanda Morales of Forever Living Products.
BB: What ignited the spark in you to start a new business venture?
Amanda: After watching my oldest daughter drop out of college due to stress, work and rising cost of tuition, I decided right then, no matter how long or hard I had to work; this would never be an issue for any of my children again.
BB: What motivates you?
Amanda: The reason of course is my three children. Especially my girls, I want them to see it is possible for women to be strong, independent and successful all while inspiring others.
BB: Excluding yours, what company or business do you admire the most?
Amanda: I am in love with Birchbox. First of all, it makes my 7 year old daughter feel so special every month at such an affordable price. Katia and Hayley are very clever women to take such a simple idea and turn it into a major success!
BB How did the idea for your business come about?
Amanda: I was actually searching for affordable yet effective supplements for my kids when I came across Forever Living. I did my research on the company and decided I could not only improve my family’s health but finances as well.
BB: What have been some of your failures, and what have you learned from them?
Amanda: My biggest failure, was not believing in myself first. If YOU don’t believe in yourself, no one else will either. Therefore, you fail before ever beginning.
BB: How did you bounce back from your first, No?
Amanda: Honestly, I broke down quite often even cried some and told myself I am not made for this! Then, I was lucky enough to come across a man named Ducarmel that shook me, figuratively of course. He told me “Amanda, did it kill you, I mean you’re still alive right?” I remember just being so shocked that all I could do was laugh! For every no, there is a yes out there waiting, go get it! In other words, once you can turn rejections into determination, your success will ignite before you even realize what happened.
BB: In one word, characterize your life as an entrepreneur?
Amanda: “Passion” You have to be passionate about what you do or you will never truly be successful.
BB: How has being an entrepreneur affected your family life and how do you balance it all?
Amanda: Most importantly, I have the freedom to be with my family whenever I choose. No more stressing whether or not you will get off work the day of your daughters first school play or award ceremony. Balancing it all was tricky at first. You have to find a system that works for you. Training your new team members from the very beginning is crucial to maintaining a well-balanced system.
BB: What are the life changing benefits to your product?
Amanda: We offer a wide variety of products for everyone from drinks, weight management, personal care, and much more. Basically, take your pick. You want to focus on your heart, digestion, immune system and or weight; we got you covered even down to cosmetics. Our products are based on pure aloe vera and natural bee propolis.
BB: Now that you are your own boss, what would you tell your 16 year old self?
Amanda: First and foremost, NEVER lose your faith. Always be honest, kind to others, humble and inspiring. A negative attitude will lead you to failure.
BB: How can people get in contact with you and find your products?
