"I signed up April 30 so I started full force May 1,my first month was fantastic I signed up two peopl under me and started to build my team. I hit Garnet once and the next three months were horrible!! June July and August I had absolutely no sales didn't even qualify but I keep doing follow ups I kept reaching out to potential customers and kept booking parties with no success!! In September I faced the hardest struggle of my life... I had a heart attack and almost died and also found out I was type 2 diabetic. On Sept 23 I went to the training event downtown and it was amazing. I learned so much. With all that being said the the point in this long post is my consistency paid off. My October has been amazing I'm so close to hitting Garnet and I'm well on my way hitting $1000 in sales a huge thank you to the ladies who spoke at the training" -Misty Hayes


"I am super excited for and proud of Samantha Gilley, who just did her first Live video! She forgot what she was going to say a couple times, but was so cute and all of her audience knew what they were watching was authentic. 

What did she go Live about, you may ask. Sammie was just sharing 1. How excited she is that she received her Spooky bath bomb order and got FOUR prize cards, 2. Sharing Spooked 2 and encouraging her customers to take advantage of the current Giveaway, 3. BUBBLES promo and free Monster soaps, 4. That's a double prize opportunity! 5. New collection launch. 

Going Live or even doing a pre-recorded video does not have to be a huge production. It can be as simple as sharing current events. Even if you have already posted about all of the above, you never know who missed your post, but will be watching your video. Remember your excitement is contagious and can be seen more through your body language than in text.

Sammie has inspired me to post a video today, how about you? Let's all put ourselves out there so our customers can see us and know we are real!!!" - Karynn Campbell


"I am so proud of Faith Alt for being within reach of $1000 and her 2nd commission bonus within her first 3 weeks of being a consultant! I am so excited to see more of what her Gemstra journey has in store for her! Great work!" -Sarah Rodriguez
