Hi! My name is Jessica McMican and I’m so excited to be able to share my story with you today! Three years ago, I was overweight, hopeless, exhausted and suffering from multiple health conditions. After years of failed diets, I started using a nutritional cleansing program, offered through Isagenix, as a last resort. I was shocked how different I felt within days. What I didn’t realize at the time was that I was experiencing the difference between typical dieting (centered around deprivation) versus flooding my body with nutrition. I went on to lose 35 lbs and 53″ over a period of a few months by incorporating Isagenix products into a healthier lifestyle, and have now kept it off for over two years.
My entire family, including my children, enjoys products from our extensive catalog – everything from protein shakes and greens to vitamins and skincare. I love the fact that our products only use the highest quality natural ingredients and are free of gluten, soy, and artificial ingredients, including sweeteners. We offer solutions for weight loss, energy and performance, as well as healthy aging.
When I started Isagenix, I was hesitant about the business opportunity. Truthfully, I had experience with direct sales in the past, and while I loved the concept, I never found the right fit for me. With each new business, it cost me money and required time away from my family.
It didn’t take long for me to realize important differences that eventually led to my decision to go all in:
• Low start-up cost – It only costs $39 to open your account. This not only gives you membership pricing, but also pays for your personal website for the year!
• No overhead – You EAT your overhead! Since the products I purchase replace food I was already purchasing elsewhere, my overhead is now just a portion of my grocery bill.
• No inventory required – No more investing your money up front for products you hope to sell.
• No parties – No more loading up the van, driving 45 mins to a party, and setting up only to discover that only 1 of your 15 “confirmed” guests decided to show – and they only came for the free food.
• Only two teams – No more pressure for trying to build 6-8 successful teams in hopes to generate an income.
• No limits – You are paid on unlimited depth, meaning it doesn’t matter who on your team enrolls someone, you get credit for 100% of their volume – no matter how far your downline they are. I started just over 2 years ago and currently have almost 8,000 people in my downline (further proof we have something people want).
• No quotas – No monthly sales requirements for you, or your team to get paid – and volume doesn’t flush. If you’ve ever worked for a company that flushes your volume at the end of the month, you know how frustrating that is.
• Equal opportunity – It doesn’t matter when or where you enroll or what your rank is – we all get paid the same rate, and we all pay the same for our products. Equal playing field, folks!
• Countless bonuses, contests, training and love – I’ve never worked for a company that was so supportive of its teams, provided such extensive training and offered so many incentives for new members to get money in their pocket FASTER with attainable goals!
• 170 millionaires and counting – We have been in business for 13 years and are continually announcing millionaires, many of which who have only been with the company for a few years. That whole “only the ones at the top make it big” theory? We prove it wrong, daily.
These are just a few of the awesome differences that set Isagenix apart and why I decided to jump on board (not to mention I was healthier and felt AMAZING!) The fact I get paid every Monday and would use these products regardless of compensation AND I get to change lives makes this the perfect fit for me. I absolutely love what I do!
One of the biggest challenges I face are people who want to feel better, but don’t want to commit to a healthier lifestyle. So often, people are looking for a quick fix – something that will allow them to eat irresponsibly, skip the gym and still see results. That isn’t something we offer or promote. Our company revolves around education about nutrition, supplying products that nourish the body and cellular cleansing to address the toxic society we live in. We aren’t looking to just give you results, we are looking give you results that last.
Just like any business, this isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. You can’t just talk to a few family members and friends, hope they all jump on board, and cross your fingers they make you rich. It requires hard work and dedication, leadership and personal development. Network Marketing isn’t for everyone, but if you want the flexibility to work from home or would love to just have some extra money to pay bills or take a vacation, this could be for you.
