Life Happens – A Real Life Residual Income Story

I have been network marketing full time for the past 3 years. I LOVE what I do  with such a passion, life happens residual incomethat I tend to work harder and longer than I ever did any other time in my life. It’s a beautiful thing to wake up in morning excited about what each day will bring. Especially when ones efforts bring a sizeable income and the wonderful feeling of truly making a difference in the lives of others.

In the past two weeks an amazing strain has been placed on our family. We had serious issues with a private school our 10 year old daughter was enrolled in which culminated in us removing her from the school. As any parent knows, mid-March is not a great time of the school year to make a change like this. Given that the circumstances were not planned and there was a lot of intense emotion surrounding them, I’m sure you can imagine how stressful these few weeks have been.

This month, March 2012, I am running for the position of Presidential Director with Visalus Sciences. My team has been growing steadily for the 15 months I’ve been a Visalus Promoter. Due to a very stable  team and foundation along with consistent internet and locally generated direct customer sales, my residual income and my new business commissions far exceed the average American’s yearly salary.  Last month I missed the next rank advancement to Presidential by a relatively small amount of sales volume. This is the month to push hard and up and over the bar. By achieving Presidential in March I will be setting myself up for easily reaching Ambassador by the end of 2012 and a $25K bonus check along with a $10K per month income. Ambassador is my big push goal for 2012 and I’m already closer to it than I expected.

So – Life Happens. This one month when I cannot afford to be distracted or diverted, this really terrible situation develops in our life and I am 100% distracted and diverted. Life Happens. The first week when it happened I still  was able to get weekly enroller pool bonus for both my position in my husband’s position as well.  Why? Because I work my business consistently and always have guests in my funnel.  I am never in the position of needing to go crazy generating business at the last minute because I make it a point to treat my business like a business and consistently fill the funnel.

As the weeks progressed my team has stepped up and created the highest amount of volume ever  in our organization at this mid-month point. I have leaders who are part of my team are amazing. I was able a share a bit with them about my situation. I usually connect with my team almost daily so it was obvious that my energy was elsewhere. These wonderful people took over a leadership role and ended up growing their own organizations even more than they expected too.

As I write this post we have decided to home school for the remainder of the year. My daughter is extremely bright and very motivated. Yesterday she laid out all her work for the day and proceeded to accomplish every bit of it in stellar fashion. My Visalus business grown while I was focused elsewhere. People are ordering products, others are enrolling as Promoters, Challenge parties are occurring and commissions are being generated. Life Happens. Residual income allows room for life without worry about finances.

I wrote more about this in a Facebook Note on the day that it all began. Connect with me on Facebook if you’d like to read it.
