My name is Brooke Oakes. I live on a small farm in Tennessee where I volunteer full time fostering horses that have been rescued, and rehabilitating them so they can be adopted again. I have always had a passion to work with animals of all shapes and sizes.
I also have a health and wellness business that allows me to help people and animals with their health struggles including weight loss, pain and healthy skin. You can check out my blog here.
This is my second time with network marketing. The first time that I became a network marketer, I went to all these meetings and attended every training I could! I stayed with it for about a year and then when I got a job transfer with better benefits and pay, I left network marketing behind me. I didn’t understand the potential that network marketing had to offer me.
I came back into network marketing because I became ill, and my medical bills became more than I could handle. I went back to the same company as I did the first time because I thought I understood how to make money through that business. I did not have a lot of energy because of how sick I was, and I didn’t have the money to spend on a lot of gas and flyers to pass out. I started trying to build my business online. I talked with my upline and I started doing everything she recommended! I thought it was going to be so easy! My friends and family were buying from me, but then I couldn’t seem to get new customers. I couldn’t figure it out.
I joined all these different groups on Facebook in and attempt to advertise my business. I created all these posts of my products and showed everyone what the great sales were…I even started to pick specific products to focus on and teach people about and created a blog. Then I learned about Facebook jail, and my business was put on hold for a week. Why would Facebook want to squash my business?
I ended up seeing a post about a Facebook challenge. It sounded neat, but I didn’t have the time. I didn’t really see the value in it. Then I kept seeing these posts for a few weeks. So I contacted one of the people who I kept seeing on Facebook. I tried one challenge, but fell behind in the work because of my doctors appointments, work and really not feeling well. I went through the work after the group ended and tried some of the strategies, and I started getting recruits! A few weeks later I decided to try again. I went through the challenge and completed all the assignments.
Then I became curious about the platform she was using with the challenge. What was MLSP? Why were there so many people talking about it helping them grow their business online? I decided it was worth a try. I had gotten a bonus at work, and as a Christmas present to myself I signed up! I became very ill again, and was not able to go to my job for about a week. That gave me time to explore MLSP, and set up my account. I even decided to start my own Facebook challenges. I wanted to be different though, so I called them “boot camp”. I got a lot of interest, and people were even contacting me about my posts now!
This has been such a great help to me, that now I am sharing it with everyone I can. Start getting leads online and growing your business today!
