Stephanie B. Location: Calgary, Alberta Ranking: 4 Star Golden Circle, 1 Star Executive As Of: June 2011 Date Started Business: November 2005 Average Annual Income: $225,821** Former Producer Transforms from Tired to Empowered Four years ago, the only thing Stephanie craved more than improving her health was the freedom from a 9-to-5 job. A production manager and producer in the film and television industry, she was tired of the 60-hour workweek and making someone else’s dream come true. To find the flexibility and time freedom she wanted, Stephanie began searching for the perfect network marketing company to join. However, after a year of searching, she came up empty-handed. It was after she finally gave up looking that Isagenix® fell into her lap, initially a solution suggested by a friend to cure her health struggle, but later she discovered it was the solution to her time struggle as well. “I had such incredible results and I was waking up before my alarm clock, the mental fog was lifted and I just felt better,” says Stephanie of Calgary. “I released 28 pounds and 21 inches* in my first program and my friends started asking me what I was doing.” Though she was busy caring for her terminally-ill mother, Stephanie began sharing her story with a few friends. Soon she was receiving paychecks in the mail as she built her Isagenix business. “Network marketing is one of the fairest economic models on the planet because we get rewarded for what we do already on a regular basis anyway, recommending what we enjoy,” explains Stephanie. “We tell people about our favorite restaurants, movies and books, but no one’s ever sent me a free movie ticket for doing so. With Isagenix, I get compensated for sharing my story.” While her belief in the products and the company was through the roof, Stephanie struggled at first with believing that she could accomplish some of the goals she had set for herself including creating a six-figure income. But after following Kathy Coover’s “10 Steps for Success” and plugging in to weekly conference calls and attending events including personal development courses with Master Trainer David Wood and Isagenix University, she learned to get over her fear of rejection and “get out of her own way.” “The biggest thing I needed to learn was to just share my passion and enthusiasm for Isagenix with others and not worry about the outcome,” says Stephanie. “I realized that if people said no they weren’t saying it to me, they were saying it to themselves.” As she grew as a person, so did her business and her paycheck. Within eight months, Stephanie had replaced her $30,000 annual income** working for a national non-profit and began working her Isagenix business full time. Since then, she’s surpassed her highest wage in the film industry, is nearing her dream of earning a residual six-figure salary and also received the 2008 “Women of Isagenix” award for her success. But more than the money and success she has experienced, she feels satisfied with how she is helping other people to improve their own physical and fiscal health. She also enjoys that she can give to the charities she’s always wanted to support. She and her husband Al now enjoy a busy travel schedule with trips planned to her hometown of Prague and across the United States to visit and work with their team. She still has goals to own an equestrian property and spend even more time volunteering in her community and says she’s grateful for how Isagenix has helped her to make her dreams come true in so many ways. “Isagenix has empowered me physically, financially and mentally with the products,” shares Stephanie. “Being part of the Isagenix family also makes me realize that I’m part of something so much bigger than I am.” The individuals pictured are actual Isagenix Associates and not paid models. *The weight-loss testimonials presented apply only to the individuals depicted, cannot be guaranteed, and should not be considered typical.
