There is NO easy way to share this, so here goes…. I QUIT PLEXUS…but hear me out on this one.
I severed my ambassadorship with Plexus….
I was having an awful experience with the sponsors that I was under when I first joined. My direct sponsor was terminated for being unethical in her business (trying to cross recruit to another company while still earning her Plexus income). Then I reached out for help to my other uplines, Alyssa and Angel (they were Diamonds and I was not so I figured they could help) only to be told I “had to be doing something wrong” or that I was “a negative person” no matter what questions I asked them. I needed and begged for help.
I hate to admit it but I let other’s people’s negativity into my head and my heart and I quit something I loved to do because of it.
I won’t get into the rest of the nitty gritty details. We don’t need to go there.
I tried going back to Plexus under a new upline in January 2017. The Ease capsules and some magnesium helped me get past a bad case of plantar fasciitis within two weeks. For that I am grateful. But when it comes to weight loss, the products just didn’t have any effect for me. I was also no longer earning any commissions (some months I did get enough to pay for my own products but that was it) as most people who tried the products were also not seeing results. You will hear most Ambassadors say “it’s a health products and weight loss is a side effect” – but let’s get real here…. most people are looking for a way to lose weight that actually works!!! (and in reality if you lose weight and get to a healthy number your other health issues can also clear up in the process).
I also took into consideration the amount of money per month I was paying. When you take the “recommended products” of Plexus Slim, ProBio5, BioCleanse, VitalBiome and XFactorPlus I was paying a total of $184.35 per month at Ambassador cost (which equals $237.75 retail). With the new products I use I am only paying $80.00 per month (which equals $115 retail). I also do not have to remember what to take when all day like when I was using Plexus. Now I simply have my morning coffee and take one capsule and I am done for the day. Easy peasy!
So yes, then I quit Plexus a second time. I needed to have a product line that not only worked for me but that worked for my customers. I need products people could actually afford.
Some days I still ask myself “What the heck was I thinking letting those negative people influence me that way?!?” and feel sad that I let them influence me that way. Luckily they did not influence me to the point I quit network marketing all together.
But you know what? I wouldn’t say my time away when I quit Plexus was totally useless and here is why: I needed a wake up call. I needed to learn that I cannot let the attitudes of anyone else effect me and my happiness or get in the way of my goals like I had allowed them to do before. I needed time to grow and mature and learn.
In the end, I have found a wonderful new company that helps me tremendously on my journey (you can see more by clicking here to join my Facebook info group). I am also thankful to be with my new team and finding some amazing new business mentors. I know that I am where I belong – with to a product line that works best for me (in body and in my bank account).
I’m feeling like my soul is once again on fire! I am once again so excited about what I am doing and the progress I am making that people can hear it even through my Facebook posts, and when I talk to them on the phone or in person they all tell me that my excitement is so contagious they have to be part of that.
And now… the new chapter in my journey begins!
