50: MY THOUGHTS ON DIRECT SALES AND ADVOCARE’S LATEST BUSINESS DECISION



In this week’s episode I wanted to touch on the Advocare situation that happened earlier this week. As someone who is in the network marketing industry, I felt it was important to share my thoughts.

If you are not aware of what has happened with the company Advocare, they changed their business model and let everyone know who was selling for them on Monday! Along with the rest of the world.

Any individual who was selling Advocare products will only be getting paid on their personal sales going forward. Before the big switch those individuals were getting paid on their personal sales plus the sales of their team that they’ve put together.

This my friend is why you always need a Plan B. Always have something else going on if you are in the network marketing game.

Are you in a network marketing company? What are your thoughts on this? Tag me on FB or IG @ownyourprettynow and let me know.

46: INTERVIEW WITH KELLY ANN GORMAN. PODCAST COACH AND PRODUCER.



In this episode I’m sharing the conversation I had with Kelly Ann Gorman (The Happy Workaholic), my Podcast Producer who I have been working with for about a year now.

Kelly had a very untraditional reason of starting her show, The Happy Workaholic Podcast. She launched because of health reasons, and quite quickly!

She also believes very strongly that there are no rules when it comes to podcasting. You can choose how creative and structured to be, as it is your show! You should just do what makes you happy.

Tune in to learn her journey of becoming a podcaster, coach and producer and how she was misdiagnosed with an autoimmune disease, which was the reasoning of this new career for her.

Kelly is also sharing many reasons why you should just start when you have an idea as well as how this audio platform is a rapidly growing medium for business owners, marketers and sales professionals as well as story tellers and other individuals with very important messages to share.

We’re also getting into the monetization of podcasting, why you need a media kit and again, why you should do it scared.

We can’t wait to hear your feedback on this show!

Have a question about this episode or podcasting? We would love to hear from you! Screenshot while you’re listening and tag us on Instagram/Facebook @ownyourprettynow and @thehappyworkaholic so we can give you all the info and answers you’re looking for.

44: CHASING SLOW. A NEW WAY OF LIFE.



In today’s episode I am talking about needing this newer version of myself. The one that is taking the time and making “slowing down” a reality.

Overwhelm and depression are not my thing, so these days I am learning how to chase slow.

You may remember my friend Ali from Episode 17.

Recently she has been sharing pieces of a book called Chasing Slow with me.

Let me tell you these excerpts are really hitting home.

As you know, I have been on maternity leave so there is not much time for me to read so I really appreciate these pieces I have seen thus far and cannot wait to dive into the book in its entirety.

Have you recently tried to slow down? Have you read Chasing Slow, the book mentioned in the show?

Tag me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow so we can continue this conversation. I would love to hear your thoughts.
