When I realized that I was the one that got to decide, everything changed. When I stopped being the victim, my life changed.

(Excerpt from What It Takes…To Earn $1,000,000 in Direct Sales)

Lisa Wilber has been selling products for Avon since 1981. At 18 years old, she worked her Avon business part time until 1988 when she was laid off from her secretarial job. Her Avon income dramatically increased after 1993 when she joined Avon’s multi-level marketing program. She is currently the #4 money earner in the country inside the program.

Q: What do you attribute your success to?
A: I didn’t know enough to know this would be as hard as it was, so I just did what I had to do. I was naïve and had no idea that this would be hard. I didn’t know enough to quit. It was my only option so I stuck with it! I am also big into personal development. I had to become a different person to be able to handle the money and invest in myself and in my business. One book I love is Lead the Field by Earl Nightingale.

Hi Kirsten, fabulous idea. I would like to know since interviewing these women, were you able to put into action any one thing that attributed to their success into play?
In the book do they give specifics or can one factor be they never quit, 14, 15 20 years ago? How did you ever find time to do all of this….YOU ROCK!!!
Yes, I’m buying a copy. don’t know if I want the paperback or electronic????

If you do what they do, you will be 😉

It’s always good to hear from real people who have actually made it. It helps knowing that regular people have started from scratch and succeeded. Getting tips from those who did can help us all. Thanks.
