Earlier this week, I was part of an It Works training session with my teammates Heather Heinrichs and Alissa Wyatt. Alissa is the one who introduced me to It Works and who is helping me grow this business! One of the key things that she told us was to find our “why”. She told us to think about the reasons behind jumping into this business and to share what keeps us going after it each day.

I’ve been thinking about my “why” for the last few days and I think it’s more powerful if I share it!

The first reason that I started with It Works was for me. I was in a place where I wasn’t happy with my weight. I had let myself get out of shape and become heavier than I have ever been in my life. I wanted to get my healthy body back and find my self-confidence again. I knew that to reach my weight and health goals, it would take a commitment from me. This commitment would take time, money, and self-discipline, but it was worth it for me to be happy in my own skin again.

The next reason I signed up for It Works was to help others. I knew that by committing to a healthy lifestyle, I could reach other people who were just starting their journeys as well. I felt that using my words and my story could be a source of encouragement to others. Writing a blog and sharing quotes can be helpful, but being able to present the products that are helping me reach my goals can have an even bigger impact! I’m on this It Works adventure for me, but I’m also doing it for others!

The third reason that I signed up for It Works is for the financial benefits. Now, I’m not planning on turning this into my full-time job or quitting my current job tomorrow; I’m using It Works as an extra source of income. We have student loans, medical bills, random expenses, etc. We’re just like most 20-somethings who are starting to be able to save for their futures, but who are still getting themselves established. I’m hoping that through hard work, It Works will give us an extra income that will help support us while Nathan finishes graduate school, while we pay off student loans, while we buy new tires for my vehicle, while we save for moving to another state, while we start saving for a baby…

My “why” is many things, but it fuels what I do. It keeps me going every day when I get up early to go to a workout or when I stay up late watching It Works training videos. I’m not just doing this “for fun.” I’ve got a plan and I know what I’m working for.

Nathan’s a huge supporter of my goals. He knows that I’m working hard and he encourages me every step of the way. He’s totally on board with It Works and now he’s a distributor as well! I’ve said it before, but we are definitely a team!


We’re so excited about this journey so far! We hope you’ll join us!
