Mother of Eight Creates Powerful Financial Story With Happy Ending

Before Isagenix® provided the freedom and opportunity to change her life, Cindy felt like she was drowning. Dealing with intense family issues and trying to keep her head above water raising eight nieces and nephews (five adopted and three that come and go), the 46-year-old was also struggling with 12 “sticky” pounds that wouldn’t come off and health issues that warranted a lifetime routine of medication. 

Unwilling to accept pharmaceuticals as the only solution, Cindy delved into nutrition for answers. The part-time fitness instructor had been hearing about Isagenix for months from a friend at the gym, and was interested, but with 15 people living in her house at the time, the prospect of starting something new was overwhelming. Cindy had a dramatic change of heart one night as she found herself in a puddle of tears in her closet. 

“All my time, energy and focus was spent trying to help and care for everyone else in my life and it left no time to care for myself,” says Cindy. “I was headed for a serious medical disaster and I could feel it. To top it off I was sliding into a middle-aged ‘mom body.’ It was so discouraging. When my friend asked me about Isagenix again, I was ready.” 

Taking on the responsibility of family and friends in need had also left Cindy and her husband financially strapped. The mother of eight took a leap of faith and charged her first Isagenix order to the family’s nearly maxed out credit card and hoped for the best. Little did she know that the leap of faith would lead to a new life of health and wealth. 

After releasing those 12 hard-to-lose pounds* and gaining back her health, Cindy attended her first Isagenix convention and became totally convinced of the life-changing possibilities of the business. 

With the family more than $50,000 in debt, Cindy justified the cost of starting by carving it out of the household food budget and began building her business in small pockets of time between teaching, the kids’ school and sports activities, and running the household. 

“Life is not going to stop for you to build this business,” says Cindy. “There’s never going to be a perfect time to start, so just start now. Lay the foundation and it will always be there to come back to. My goal was to make an extra $2,000 a month. Within months I was doing that and it just continued to build from there.” 

Cindy is almost speechless talking about her current income. The 5-Star Golden Circle and Crystal Executive is bringing in $4,000 to $5,500 a week and has earned more than $46,000 in leadership bonuses.** 

“I’m so truly grateful for Isagenix because our lives are completely different and changed for the better,” shares Cindy. “Isagenix is one of the greatest gifts that I’ve ever been given. I will be forever grateful.”

Isagenix has paid off the family’s debt (aside from the home mortgage) and is also paying for three kids in college and any surprises that may pop up. Best of all, Cindy kept her commitment to be present for her children while also providing the family with financial freedom.

“During the four years we have been building this business we’ve had a lot of very challenging family situations. I want to encourage people that if we can do it, you can do it,” says Cindy. “ Just start where you are, lead with a heart to bless and serve others, be diligent and do the work.”

Cindy’s Tips for Success

  • Build your business with money you are already spending. We didn't have new money to invest in a business, but we were spending a lot of money on food with nothing to show for it. So I carved out a chunk of the food budget and invested it into Isagenix nutrition instead.
  • Follow the Leader. Our success is a reflection of many talented people doing exactly what the company tells you to do. Get yourself and your team plugged in. Get to all the events and get your team trained. Use the tools, host tasting parties, do three-way calls and conference calls, build a community and support one another.
  • Be Flexible and Spontaneous. With eight kids, I never do just one thing at a time. I’ll train people on the phone while doing laundry, sweeping floors or picking up the house. I will cleanse coach or touch base with my leaders while grocery shopping, walking the dogs or running to soccer or piano. I will meet with people while my children are at practice or take my computer and work in my car while I am waiting.
  • Make it about others. Get rid of the words "I can't" or "it's too hard;" stay focused on why you LOVE Isagenix! Focus on all the people just like you that absolutely NEED it and will LOVE it too; do the work!
  • Make it easy for people to say "Yes!" Have fun with them, be patient and then deliver GREAT customer service!
  • Get your family involved. Talk to your husband and kids and ask for their support - make it fun. If you all work together and support one another it creates excitement about what you can achieve as a family. Then, when you reach those goals, celebrate it as a family. I love that.
