Back in January 2020, I was asked by a fellow hairdresser why I am involved Network Marketing.
Being a hairdresser would surely keep me busy enough.
It wasn’t about keeping busy, more about having another source of income. Something else to fall back on.

As we get older, the job we currently do may not be suitable in later years and so lugging tools and leaning over clients baths to rinse their hair seemed slightly daunting if I was going to continue my career into my early 70s.
“Do you do this through choice or more for the money ? Because if it’s the money, then you can just put your prices up and do less clients .”
An interesting comment and one that I thought about carefully before I answered.
I’ve been in hairdressing for over 32 years.
It’s my passion, I enjoy meeting people, making them look and feel lovely, providing a service and of course it pays my bills, like any job.
I don’t increase my prices to work less hours. My clients know I work more hours than I should but I love what I do. It’s so important to enjoy the work we do.
We’re at work for the majorly of our lives so why not do something that you enjoy ?
I increase my prices yearly due to product price increases, fuel increases ( we know how much that fluctuates !) and I keep up to date with my skills.
Being a member of the FHA, it’s a necessity to keep skills updated and to learn what’s trending. Above all, it’s beneficial for the clients.
This is what I charge for.
When I first began network marketing, it became a hobby that fitted in with my hairdressing career.
I soon saw its potential and wanted to create another business.
To be able to provide another great service and products to my already existing client base, seemed like the perfect solution and one that I was going to look forward to working on.
Over the years, this has progressed to another business.
I built up a wonderful community of other friends online who regularly purchase from me and we support one another in each of our ventures.
It’s so important to support others, whether you work in an office, a shop or within a community, so working online is no different.
Whist we can’t compete with face to face when working online, it is still possible to get to know customers over time, even when perhaps we never get to met them.
So, my response to my fellow hairdressers question as to why I work with an online company alongside hairdressing was that I do network marketing through choice and the money is only a small part of why I joined.
We all work for the money whatever job we do but helping others in the process is a big part of working online.
I fell in love with the products that the company provide and I have met some amazing friends, leaders and mentors.
I also wanted to help others to make money and save money on their shopping.
When I have someone new join my team, I feel happy, content and want to help them to make the best of their journey with FM.
There are no short cuts in life, we all have our own reasons for doing what we do and the career choice we make.
For me, helping others far outweights the money we can potentially earn.
Perfume is such a popular product for both men and women and I loved the ides that I could save so much money on my own products as well as helping others.
A definite win-win situation.
Since perfume was first created by Chanel we have paid a fortune in designer perfumes and many still do. It’s something that we have all been used to .
If you would like the opportunity to earn an extra income, love wearing fragrances and cosmetics I would love to hear from you.

Working from home
Working from home has become very popular of late. People ask me how i can run two businesses AND an employed job.
“Surely there’s not enough hours in the day?” My friends ask.
We all have the same amount of hours. It’s how we fill them that matters.
As I returned to the world of hairdressing after so many lockdowns, those who follow my perfume page regularly will see that i carried on providing a service with my online business when my hairdressing business was temporarily closed.
Working from home
When we keep active in a business whilst working on another, we show consistency.

Consistently is key in order to be successful. Anyone can be successful. It’s about believing in yourself and pushing yourself towards your goals.
Without goals, we just work to pay the bills and miss out on the potential to earn extra money to then enjoy more freedom.
