Aloette is not just about the product or the paycheck. It’s about meeting the family you didn’t know you had. This year my Aloette family in Northwest Virginia didn’t just hit a sales goal; we broke records, grew faster than any other Aloette business and had our biggest sales month ever. Getting to this point wasn’t easy, but the journey was well worth it.
I started with Aloette as a beauty consultant and through this income I was able to financially support my family while bringing the best in skincare and makeup to my clientele. As a licensed medical aesthetician I am well aware of the science behind skincare, and Aloette is truly among the best in technologically advanced skincare in the market today. What’s more, its aloe vera delivery system has the best in healing powers and penetration properties.
Ever since my first year with Aloette it was my dream to embark into franchise ownership, and I knew that it would take hustle, courage and the ability to embrace change. As I started to work with some customers in Virginia I realized that Aloette didn’t have a true brand presence within the area. I think Aloette should be a part of everyone’s life, not just mine. So even though I had a secure customer base in North Carolina, I decided that it was time to make my dreams a reality and I moved to Virginia to open my Aloette franchise.
I think one of the keys behind my success is that I never ran my business with the sole goal of making me and my family money. Instead I focused on bringing the Aloette opportunity to families of anyone and everyone. When I first opened Aloette of Northwest Virginia my husband was serving our country overseas in Afghanistan. While he was there he met a fellow Virginian whose wife had over $90,000 in school loans, and he texted me the woman’s contact information. Everyone has a story and everyone has a need for something, and when I can fulfill that need and make someone’s story that much better, than that’s all the determination I need to run a successful business. Now that my husband is back in the states he supports me with my business through thick and thin, and we stay focused on sharing the Aloette opportunity to everyone who we speak to.
For the prospective boss babes out there who are ready to embark on their dreams, I’ll share with you a quote I love from Sandi Krakowski: A new thing is coming. Don’t rebuild the past. Stop trying to fix everything to be as it was before. A new thing is rising. Forget the former things and make clear paths for the new. I think one thing that holds a lot of people back from growth is fear of change, and when you hold so tight on to the way things used to be, there’s no way to get your life to the way you want it to be. Being the fastest growing Aloette franchise wouldn’t have happened had I not made a clear path in growing and building my new team of beauty consultants and customers.
My final words of wisdom is simple: Just go for it. You will never know until you try.
