Lately I’ve had the privilege of having several conversations with potential Beautycounter consultants, and with every single one of them the only hangup has been the fear of what others will think if they jump in and say yes. I get it y’all – because that was MY biggest fear and hangup too! I’m a people pleaser in remission, but for so long that desire to make everyone happy with me got in the way of something I really wanted to do.
I could go into the long backstory, but the short of it is this: I wanted to join Beautycounter months and months before I actually did, but I saw how people were responding to direct sales. And I let those very vocal few people who didn’t love it get in the way of me starting a business that has quite literally changed my health and finances for the better. That’s on me – but I can also attest to the fact that once I said yes and signed up there was an overwhelming freedom. It felt like I had taken a little bit of my life back by simply shutting out the naysayers and going after something I felt called to do.
Y’all, some companies haven’t done direct sales well, and it’s left a sour taste behind. But Beautycounter is not like other companies…and YOU ARE NOT LIKE OTHER PEOPLE. If you’ve felt the itch, the call, the desire – don’t put it off just because you’re afraid of what others will think. As Rachel Hollis says, other people’s opinion of you is none of your business.
You know what IS your business? Creating a life that serves you and serves others. Being on mission to leave this world better than you found it. Following hard after the things that you are called to do.
Let’s do this today. If you’ve thought about joining Beautycounter’s mission and creating a financially rewarding business while simultaneously have significant social impact, don’t let the potential opinions of others get in the way of that. Email me any time at hsdisarro (at) gmail (dot) com.
