Before I started selling Poofy Organics, I was underemployed. Even as a college graduate, it was hard for me to find a job in my field for a variety of reasons, and I ended up working on base at the exchange because though it was a lower paying job, it was flexible in hours and easy work. However, despite the fact that it was easy money, I was unhappy and feeling unappreciated. I dreaded going into work, and at the time, I was spending just enough in gas money to get there that I felt it wasn't worth the effort and expense I put in to go there. When they wanted me to come back early after having a baby (I had a C-sections with complications, so I was NOT ready to come back even at 12 weeks postpartum), that was the final straw. I dropped to weekends only while I made up my mind, mainly because those were the only hours that my husband wasn't at work and I wasn't going to put my baby in daycare or risk our breastfeeding relationship for a job that didn't even want to pay me what I was worth. It took me a couple weeks, but when I put my 2-week notice in, I was confident that it was the right decision for me.
Nearly a year later, I know I made the right decision. There are of course, pros and cons to being a network marketer, but with Poofy Organics, the pros outweigh the cons so much that I hardly ever think about the cons.
When I was still working at the exchange on base, I was selling all kinds of products I didn't believe in for low wages. I hated it, and I will gladly trade not making an hourly wage in exchange for only selling products that I believe in. Additionally, while I only make a commission - which can be a drag sometimes, no one is yelling at me for being late to work because I make my own hours. In fact, I hardly ever work, and that's totally okay! Another reason I love what I do is that no one ever tells me what to wear - I'm wearing yoga capri pants that would have been against the dress code at my old job, but it's totally okay for me to wear them while working on my blog! I also rarely have to drive to work, and when I do, it's to hang out with friends, drink wine, and have a spa night - you literally CANNOT beat that!
It may be true that the founders of the company are making a lot more money than I am, but I truly feel that they should be. They put together these amazing products made from organic ingredients and are truly helping to change the world, one dollar and drop at a time, so YES, they absolutely should be paid more than I am. They're the ones sweating away in the shop every day, making products, making sure those products are certified and then made each and every time to the T so they can continued to be certified, along with making sure everything else is on the up and up so the rest of us can succeed in our businesses. Whether we like it or not, we are salespeople in our every day lives. Every time I drive my van, I am a poster child for Nissan. My stroller shows I'm a fan of Graco. My daughter's room shows that she loves Barbies. We can either get paid for our financial affiliations or not, and I chose to capitalize on my dollar-spending decisions, and that's okay!
