Today I celebrate 3 years of being an Acti Labs Ambassador! Well I say celebrate, but today has been a crazy busy day but I have been thinking a lot and looking back on what exactly has happened to me this last 3 years 😊.
It all started with this kit 👇🏻
Unfortunately I have used all the original products up but my kit bag is still in great shape today! I remember Stephen coming home from work and saying “what have you done? You’ve joined another one of them companies haven’t you?” 🤦♂️
🤦🏻♀️ “Yes Stephen but don’t worry because if it doesn’t work out you don’t have a monthly quota to meet so I’m just going to give it a go!”
My first month I did £1066 worth of sales, earning me £266.50…. and I’ve never looked back! I have built a huge team across the UK 🇬🇧 USA 🇺🇸 Canada 🇨🇦 and Ireland 🇮🇪. My business is booming and the best thing about it is that I am having fun sharing the best quality products and working with lots of amazing people each day… all from the comfort of my home and around my commitments!
But aside from giving me this income and ability to be at home with my children what else has this opportunity done for me?
Boosted My Confidence
When I first joined Acti my confidence had hit an all time low. I was suffering with PND (Post Natal Depression) and I had been made to take a demotion in order to go part time in the day job to be able to deal with my then youngest sons needs. I won’t dwell on it all too much but it still aggravates me the fact that women in a corporate managerial position can end up losing their career through having children and needing to work part time… The confidence built through a few Acti Avenues. Firstly the products. I got my kit and converted my old customer group from a previous venture which didn’t work out well at all and started promoting them. But I was also using the products. My skin changed dramatically and I had all this lovely new make up. I was involved in the corporate support group and I felt surrounded by positive and encouraging women. And then as the first months went on I made some friends, a lot of who are now very close friends who will be my friends for life! This was all online. It sounds crazy 😜 but mums spend a lot of time alone, even with the kids! We love being mums and caring for them but a lot of us crave adult conversation too 😉. I swore I wasn’t going to promote our weight loss products, but after a few weeks of seeing results flying around I decided to give them a try. I lost 3.5 stone (49lb) in 3 months. This was a massive (excuse the pun 🤣) life change for me because with having PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) I’ve been on every diet under the sun and really battled with my weight. Friendships In November 2015 I attended the Acti Christmas ball. I got to meet lots of ambassadors and managers there, including Ashleigh Bray and had an amazing time. I felt like a million dollars. I hadn’t felt like that in such a long time. I finally got to meet Ria, Sandra, Kerry, Natalie and Loren in real life. We had such an amazing time. I felt like me again 😊. I just wish I had got more involved in having my photo taken 🙈. Then we prepared for the launch of Acti Labs USA and things really did start to crazy! I have online friendships with so many people from across the pond and a huge proportion of my team are in America…. I blame them for my new found love of Pumpkin Spice. You can only seem to get pumpkin spice flavoured porridge here, I need to complain to someone about that 🙄🤣🙄And then quickly we launched in Canada! And again I have a large part of my team in Canada too. We are all living very different lives in different states and different continents but we all learn from each other each day! I genuinely love what we do and what we have 😍.
In 2017, I gave birth to our youngest (and last) son. 22nd January he came a month early. 1st February the qualification for the Acti Labs Leaders retreat commenced. I didn’t know how I was going to manage it but I did! I was one of the 20 to qualify and I was lucky enough to spend 2 nights in Warwickshire in 5 star luxury on a spa break. I was also very excited to meet our owners and Ashleigh again. It was truly an amazing time!
What does the future hold?
Well my future is definitely with Acti! 💜 We have so many plans for the future. We are launching in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 later this year and in the next few weeks our laboratory expansion will be completed so we will have faster and bigger scale production to cope with the increased demand. I do regularly have people contact me asking me if I would consider something else. And I have had friends skip off to try something else or even 4,5 or 6 other things and a lot of them have come back. That’s simply because the grass isn’t always greener on the other side and because we have sustainability here with real good quality products that do what they say on the tin, and don’t cost the earth. Because we are the laboratory and pioneers of the latest technology! I’m excited and happy! Don’t get me wrong some days I lose direction because I have so much going on with my kids but I soon pick it back up again. I know what I want and I know where I am heading. Anyway, this has become much longer than I planned but I have a lot to be happy about 😊. Thanks for reading, and don’t ever forget: Love Dionne 💋 xxx
