Today's guest left the corporate world and entered network marketing in order to settle down and start a family. She was an amazing success story among her network marketing company – among the top 1% of the company she received cars, trips, and even a $50k bonus check… only to discover that she still was not happy or financially secure. After going through a massive life transformation she found a passion for empowering and educating women to claim their potential, and to understand that success isn’t found in money. It’s found in fulfilling God’s call and fueling your soul. Join me in welcoming Stefanie Gass to the podcast!
The NotesI truly believe in balance. I believe you get define what that word means. To me, that doesn’t look like a 50/50 scale. What that looks like for me is asking: how can I be the be the most fueled Stefanie? ~Stefanie Gass,… Click To Tweet
Today I am thrilled to welcome mompreneur Stefanie Gass to the show. Stefanie offers some excellent insight in how she defines balance by determining how she and her family are most fully fueled. She makes a point to use time-blocking to make sure she is daily touching on those core values, even if it’s not always a perfect split. Stefanie is a big proponent of making sure her kids get to choose the path they want to pursue based on their passions. She shares the creative hacks she uses to actively engage her kids by helping them create a “Play List” of the things they will accomplish while Stefanie works.It’s all about time-blocking, being proactive versus reactive for me. You have to own your day. You have to take your power back that you actually have control of every hour in your day and stop making excuses. ~Stefanie Gass,… Click To Tweet
Stefanie also has some excellent tips for anyone who is in network marketing or direct sales. The secret is that you are actually an affiliate marketer. If you can embrace this new perspective, you can devote more energy to building you own brand that incorporates this business and avoid an oversaturated market. She shares how she uses attraction and curiosity marketing to be more effective in sales. This also protects you as direct sales companies can either grow or even disappear in the future!Because you go do something different, that’s what actually creates a more specialized niche for you and you’re going to be more successful. ~Stefanie Gass, FamilyPreneur Podcast episode #166 Click To Tweet
Meet Stefanie Gass
After becoming a corporate powerhouse by 26 and realizing she needed a way to end the 60 hour workweek and travel so she could settle down and start a family, she was introduced to network marketing. 2 years (and a TON) of hustle later, she has “made it”. I.e. The top 1% of this company, paid for cars, free trips, and even walked the stage holding a life-sized, 50K bonus check… only to find her ego and insatiable drive to financial success wasn’t sustainable.
Nor was it making her happy… with all her eggs in this one crushed up little basket, and a team that was off and looking for the next best thing, she was knocked to my knees. 60 pounds overweight after her second son and borrowing money from her kid’s savings accounts to cover cash flow problems, she was searching for purpose.
She was led to renewed spirituality and went through a massive life transformation to find herself, meaning, and a purpose…What she found was a passion for empowering and educating women to claim their potential, and to understand that success isn’t found in money. It’s found in fulfilling God’s call and fueling your soul.
She would love to share this message along with inspiring, motivating, and encouraging your listeners to create their own success, take control of their best, most balanced life through time blocking, inner discovery, faith, and understanding why dark seasons are needed to break into the light.
