I thought it was a hoax when I got the email invite. And so I checked w/ an insider… and he confirmed it! I had been picked to be 1 of a handful of representatives from my company to speak with members of #USCongress tomorrow…. for #directsellingday, about why I do what I do, about the impact of our business on families I get to work with, and why I have chosen this as my career. What an honor… it’s humbling and exciting!
Usually this invite includes a flight to Washington DC for a few days of in-person meetings – but 2020 had other plans. So we’re taking it virtual. The same important issues will be on the table. But there will be less hand-shaking, pats on the back, and photo opps. Instead we will focus on our WHY. And I could talk about my WHY all day long. BRING IT!
When you filter out the rest of the social media and the stuff that comes along with that… what is it I do? I educate others by sharing my stories. And I love telling a good story.
Look, direct selling may not be for everyone… but ANYONE can run with it, especially if they’re willing to put in some hard work, do the HEART work, and do the good work of HELPING people. When your passion, your values, and your goals align with a good company – why WOULDN’T you want to partner with them?
And to know that your efforts are impacting economies, locally … nationally… and even GLOBALLY? I’ve seen this impact for 6 1/2 years now and the opportunities just keep coming! I get to share this excitement, this drive, this passion with our elected officials tomorrow. It is important to me to request their attention to consumer protection legislation. It is important to me, as an American, to boldly take a stand for the entrepreneur, for the professionals running their business in a way that supports their family and their goals.
