Mom’preneurs share words of wisdom

Finding a comfortable balance between parenting, being a wife and building a business can be a juggling act at times. It takes sacrifice, resolve and lots of love, something moms are naturally good at. But, how do they do it?

There are plenty of mothers who have made a huge contribution to PURE as Independent Business Owners, all while raising a family. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we asked them how they shuffle family life with building their PURE business. Let their words inspire you and touch your heart this Mother’s Day.

Betty Blackhurst, Presidential

“PURE offers an opportunity to help moms create a legacy for their families, and it’s a great platform to help pay for college. Thanks to my mother, I was taught to be respectful, to treat people equally no matter what their background, to love people with all your heart and always have integrity. People don’t care how much you know, they care about how much you care!”

 

Mallory Meredith, Platinum Director

“My mother was a wonderful woman. She passed when I was 6, but I am told that I am 100% her! What a wonderful gift to give your children … the best parts of yourself! With PURE, I can spend more time with my daughter because of the freedom the business gives me.”

 

Joni Michaels, Blue Diamond

“Having owned my business for 32 years, the best advice I can give to the mom who is looking to start her own business is to find balance. For those of us who are business owners, parents and wives, balance is always the key to success in all three areas. I learned early on that balance takes prioritizing, that means saying yes to the things that add value and no to what doesn’t. By doing this, I have always felt “present”, whether inside my business, beside my husband or with my children.”

 

Melanie Petz, Blue Diamond

“Always remember your ‘Why’. Mine is my family. When things get tough, remember the precious blessings you’re leaving for them. My amazing mom is a two-time survivor of breast cancer and open-heart surgery. She is my hero and taught me how important it is to take care of your body. She also always made time to watch our children during conferences or when we traveled with PURE.”

 

Jenn Powell, Ruby Executive

“Some of the best advice my mom gave me is to never doubt myself. She would always say to never tell yourself no, but rather to let others tell you no. She also taught me to fall in love with taking care of yourself and to raise your children to do the same.”

 

Magen Rivers, Diamond

“You can do it! Take it one day at a time, or one hour at a time, but take action. Your family is counting on you! When I decided to treat my business like a business, it started paying me like a business. That meant I had to set priorities. Let’s face it, as a mom there’s always something to do. My mom gave me an incredible piece of advice. She said, ‘If I put a thousand stones in your front yard and told you that under one of them was a key that opened a box that held a million dollars, how many stones would you turn to find that key?’ So even though I received “no’s” those first few days, I kept going and eventually became successful!”

 

Karidon Roundy, Sapphire Executive

“Sharing my journey with others is what has helped me build my business and make a financial change for me and my family. I am thankful every day for PURE and for the opportunity to be home with my kids and still help the family out financially.”

 

Thressa Stehr, Emerald Director

“Moms, enjoy the journey. You will not experience overnight success, but it allows you and your family time and freedom. You can work this business from anywhere. Weave it into your day-to-day routine with the kids and share it with everyone you meet because what you have your hands on is a gift! Growing up I learned what not to do. Life is not easy and you have to be willing to go after what you want.”

 

Marla Watson, Ruby Director

“Moms, remember that your kids are watching everything you do. They admire your willingness to get uncomfortable and they love watching you succeed. They also see how you handle the no’s, and are learning to never quit!  Always be present when your kids are around and include them in your business. My mom always taught me that you are what you eat!  We grew up eating lots of fresh veggies that were grown in our garden, so I learned from an early age that eating plants was a key to health!”

 

Good advice, right? We want to thank all our mom’preneurs here at PURE. Each and every one of you is truly an inspiration.

Have a very Healthy and Happy Mother’s Day.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, foster moms, and women in our community that are mother-like figures! To celebrate, we thought we’d share what we believe to be the special qualities moms have that make them exceptional entrepreneurs.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Men and women without children make great entrepreneurs, too. However, according to 2015 stats from the Direct Selling Association, 77.4% of direct sellers were women and 22.6% were men. Women have this networking thing down!

The following qualities give moms that extra oomph when it comes to being the boss.

  • Moms are great at multitasking. From making breakfast and getting the kids to school on time, while remembering to take Johnny to his dentist appointment, moms can juggle like nobody’s business. They need this quality in order to balance their business, the customers they’ll garner and any personal matters in play.
  • Moms cultivate relationships. They know how to network within their circle. They aren’t afraid of asking a stranger for directions, or introducing a new person to the team. They’ll take advantage of the education their mentor provides, asking the right questions until they understand.
  • Moms build trust. Moms will make you laugh, cry and share your story, all of which build trust. They will always give their children a reason to listen. Customers want to trust whom they are buying their products from. They want to trust that what they are purchasing is going to make a difference in their lives.
  • Moms prioritize and get things done. Moms know their limits and how to manage their time. When it comes to charging your phone or charging your body, moms instinctively know what’s best and what will end up being more productive in the long run. In this business, one has to be able to turn “busy” into “productive”.
  • Moms can make anything out of the ordinary. She can turn junk mail into a paper airplane, a glove into a puppet or a box into a dollhouse. Entrepreneurs need creativity to create campaigns that stand out. It helps to be social media savvy as well; that’s where connections really happen.
