Success Story — Lynn Allen-Johnson
Tell us a little about your background and the path that led you to where you are now.
When I was 16, my father passed away from cancer and my world turned upside down. For years, I was on an emotional roller coaster. By 23 years old, I was divorced with two young daughters who relied on me. I strung countless jobs together just to make ends meet.
I struggled for many years. When I found network marketing at age 50, I was working over 60 hours a week and still barely getting by. As a result, my health suffered greatly. Then one day my daughter sent me some nutritional supplements. I began taking them, and before I knew it, I signed up because I wanted to take advantage of buying these health products at wholesale. People almost instantly started noticing the change. I loved helping them and connecting them with great products. The part-time income helped tremendously at that time as well.
How did you discover ARIIX?
I have been with ARIIX since the very beginning. I’ve known both Mark Wilson and Fred Cooper for over 15 years, and when I heard they were partnering to launch a new network marketing company that would disrupt the industry, I just had to take a look. You see, for me, business is about relationships. I knew these Founders — their hearts and their passion for their Representatives. There was never a time in my network marketing career when I didn’t feel valued by them. To many companies, you are just a number or someone who helps the organization make money. To Mark and Fred, as well as the other Founders, I always knew my success mattered. Today, I’m a member of the Founders Club and enjoy collaborating with others to continually improve the network marketing industry.
How do you balance your ARIIX business with your busy life?
I don’t consider it a balancing act. When you’re as passionate about something as I am about ARIIX, it just fits naturally into your everyday. I love sharing the gifts of both physical and financial health with everyone I meet. Growing my ARIIX business is just an added bonus. Every day I wake up and want to share this incredible opportunity with everyone I meet, and it’s especially rewarding watching people around me change and grow and become the best version of themselves. That’s the best reward and makes my heart feel good.
Q: Any success strategies you would like to share with our readers?
It all begins with vision. You have to know why you are doing this business and see the future you are about to create before it ever happens. When your vision is clear enough, the motivation will follow. And the action you take will always be determined by your motivation, which is driven by the power of your vision. It is absolutely key. Once your vision is down on paper in front of you and you own it, nothing will stop you. Once I understood that principle, I drew a line in the sand and declared that failure was not an option, and it was on. BOOM!
