Interview with Abbey Fatica – Working From Home as an Isagenix Independent Associate

Abbey FaticaTell us how you got involved with Isagenix. 

Two years ago, I was introduced to Isagenix by my friend Staci. I was looking for a way to get rid of the baby weight that I was holding onto from my third child. I was not interested in the business at the time because I had a busy online business and startup that I was working on but I loved the products and the changes they had made to my body.

Fast forward a year later after another pregnancy and birth of our fourth baby. I knew we were done having kids and it was high time to start taking care of myself and feeling comfortable in my own skin. I called Staci again and told her that I was ready to get started on the products for good this time, because I knew how amazing they were and how they made me feel so great! I was also in a place career wise where I was looking for a new opportunity, so I decided to take a look at the compensation plan. It was exactly what I was looking for: something that I could do part-time but make a full time salary, work from home, and be able to interact with other moms who wanted the same thing I did.

Buying an Existing Website: Interview with Megan Barnes, Owner of The Mogul Mom

Megan Barnes, The Mogul MomTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey

I live in Jackson, Mississippi with my husband, Terrence, and two endlessly comical dogs, Fergi & Gus. A lifelong learner and certified nerd I am curious—about everything. I love to read, write, and engage people in conversation. I’ve discovered I have a talent for building community and a gift for drawing out and understanding others’ experiences, and I have built my business model around those strengths. Until recently, I really never fancied myself an entrepreneur, though I grew up in an entrepreneurial family. I’ve since realized that being an entrepreneur is more about the desire to understand and solve the problems of your experience through creativity and innovation, than about being “business savvy” in the conventional sense. In that way, I’m entrepreneurial in almost everything I do, always pushing the envelope, ever asking questions and looking for the possibility in things.

My first love was writing, but after my 8-year-old heart was jilted by poor reader reception, I followed other pursuits. ;) I’ve since come full circle and am presently working on building my technical skill and writing voice and hoping to unearth some talent in the process. I’ve accumulated a diverse range of work experience over the years, including running my own cleaning business for a time and dabbling in Arbonne (MLM) before becoming owner of The Mogul Mom in October of 2013.

Interview with Heidi Brown – Founder of Options Away

Interview with Heidi BrownTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey. 

I was born and raised in Canada. I bounced back and forth between Toronto and a northern lake house, which I am eternally thankful for. I think this lifestyle truly shaped my personality. I love cities and all things urban, but also have a constant desire to be surrounded by nature and seek adventure.

From the time I was very young I wanted to work for a large corporation, wear tailored suits, and climb up the ranks. That’s all I knew. Digital startups did not yet exist and most entrepreneurial ventures required huge initial capital. I often think about what great companies I could have built or worked for had I had the technological opportunities available today.

My entrepreneurial calling didn’t hit until I decided to have children. It was very important to me to stay at home for the first few years. Once they got to kindergarten age I was ready to launch, having researched my market and created a business plan while they slept.

What did you do before launching Options Away? 

After graduating with an Economics degree and not ready to join the academics ranks, I wrestled with the common dilemma of consulting or banking. I was not by any means an accomplished math scholar, but the world of finance appealed to my basic 20-something instincts … travel and money. (more…)

Interview with Theresa Krause – President and Founder of Moxie Gear

Theresa Krause - President & Founder of Moxie GearTell us a little bit about Moxie Gear and how it got started.

I wanted to start my own direct sales company and wanted a business that could really help women in a way that no other company was. Personal protection has always been important to me and I have given safety and personal security tips to my friends for years, so it only made sense to start a company that I could help other women with their safety while helping women build their own business as well.

I knew there was a need for women to be armed with the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves from those wanting to do them harm. Every 26 seconds a violent crime occurs in America.  One in five women will be sexually assaulted at some point in their lives. To me, these numbers are too high and I do not want to be anyone’s next victim.

Moxie Gear is a direct sales party plan company. We are providing less than lethal self-defense weapons designed for women. What better way to learn about these type of products than by having fun in the comfort of your home surrounded by your closest girlfriends? I know many women feel intimidated going into a gun shop staffed with men, and do not feel comfortable asking them questions to determine what self-defense options would best suit them. That is why I went with the direct sales business model, so that independent consultants could help women evaluate their needs. (more…)

Interview with Kelly Wenzel – Founding Director with Stella & Dot and National Account Manager with Simply Hired

Interview with Kelly Wenzel - with Stella & Dot and National Account Manager with Simply HiredTell us about your work at home position with Stella & Dot.

Stella & Dot’s mission is to give women globally the means to style their own life on their own terms. With Stella & Dot, our celebrity coveted accessories brand is only sold through private trunk shows, personal shopping sessions and our ecommerce site. My week consists of booking and holding trunk shows with new and old friends, but most of my time is focused on coaching and supporting my fabulous team of 500+ women across the US, Canada, and the UK.

How were you able to bring your current position home?

After 11 years tied to a desk in the staffing world and running my Stella & Dot business along side, I realized that I was so much more efficient with my time and happier the days when I worked form home – so I left to focus 100% on my Stella & Dot Business. There is something to be said for loading the dishwasher while listening to a training call and being the one to be in carpool pick up when you choose. I wanted to be more present for my family and working from home with Stella & Dot has allowed me to structure my working day around our schedule not the other way around.

Are there any tips you would recommend to people who want to do the same thing?

My best advice is to look outside the box. Social selling companies offer many, many opportunities for a flexible income both part time and full time and even while working a corporate career and running a family these businesses can be quite the compliment. (more…)
