In January 2020, a fellow hairdresser asked me why I was involved in Network Marketing. They pointed out that being a hairdresser should keep me busy enough.
For me, it wasn’t about staying busy; it was about having another source of income, something to fall back on.
As we get older, the job we currently do may not be suitable in later years. The physical demands of lugging tools and leaning over clients’ baths to rinse their hair can seem daunting if I were to continue my career into my early 70s.
One day, a colleague asked me, “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 fewer clients.”
It was 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, paying my bills, like any job.
I don’t increase my prices to work fewer 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 spend the majority of our lives at work, so why not do something that you enjoy?
I increase my prices yearly due to product price increases and fluctuations in fuel costs (we know how much that can vary!). I also keep up to date with my skills. Being a member of the FHA (Federation of Hairdressers and Beauty Therapists), 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 was more of a hobby that fit in with my hairdressing career. However, I soon saw its potential and wanted to create another business. The idea of providing another great service and products to my already existing client base seemed like the perfect solution and something I was looking forward to working on.
Over the years, this hobby has evolved into another business. I’ve built up a wonderful community of friends online who regularly purchase from me, and we support one another in each of our ventures. Supporting others is crucial, whether you work in an office, a shop, or within a community, so working online is no different. It’s all about collaboration and helping each other succeed.
While working online may not offer the same level of personal interaction as face-to-face interactions, it is still possible to build meaningful relationships with customers over time, even if you never meet them in person. The key to successful online business relationships is consistent and genuine communication.
By providing excellent customer service, addressing their needs and concerns promptly, and offering valuable content or products, you can foster trust and loyalty among your online customers. Building a strong online presence through social media and online communities can also help you connect with your customers and create a sense of community around your brand.
So my response to my fellow hairdresser’s 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 provides, and I have met some amazing friends, leaders, and mentors. I also wanted to help others make money and save money on their shopping.
When I have someone new join my team, I feel happy, and content, and want to help them make the best of their journey with FM World.
There are no shortcuts in life; we all have our reasons for doing what we do and the career choices we make. For me, helping others far outweighs the money we can potentially earn.
Perfume is such a popular product for both men and women, and I loved the idea that I could save so much money on my purchases, alongside helping others. A definite win-win situation.
Since perfume was first created by Chanel, we have been accustomed to paying a fortune for designer perfumes, and many still do. It’s something that we have all become accustomed to.
If you would like the opportunity to earn extra income and enjoy wearing fragrances and cosmetics, I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or join my team!!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
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.
