How a Real Work-At-Home Mom is Achieving Real Success in YTB
I never knew that I was a late bloomer, but I am. I married my dream husband late in life. Four years later, the greatest miracle occured...Cion Alexandria Osei was born! When Cion entered our lives, I had been accustomed to working in Corporate America and in full-time ministry. After Cion was born, my life changed drastically. I immediately became a work-at-home Mom, who, thankfully before too long began achieving success in YTB.
Traveling has always been a passion of mine and in my past corporate jobs, ministry work and overseas missions, I had been blessed to travel quite a lot. So when my friend approached me with the idea of getting into a travel business, the travel part was a no brainer. It was the business part that I balked at.
YTB is both a travel business and a network marketing company. In my mind, it was little more than "sales" and I hated sales. I was also completely unprepared and unwilling to invest $500 in another business opportunity. I had invested too much in past ventures that I did absolutely nothing with. But there was something different about YTB. The way my friend spoke about the company, the founders, their integrity and most of all the travel products, travel benefits, perks and commissions... I was compelled. After about a month, my husband and I joined YTB.
We joined YTB for many reasons, first of which is that YTB is a great company. More than this, it's a really great company for a WAHM. First, because there is no pressure. YTB doesn't have timelines or quotas you must fulfil. You can work at your own pace and on your own schedule. Second, YTB just makes sense. If you're going to travel anyway and if you know people who travel, it makes sense to earn commissions on that travel. It also makes sense to travel wholesale, to save on your taxes AND to get paid a referral fee when sharing this great business and these benefits with others. Third, YTB is 100% turnkey. You don't even need computer skills to succeed in YTB! YTB makes it easy for WAHMs because they do the difficult work for you. Fourth, YTB rewards you on activity and on results! YTB has a $6,000 guarantee program that rewards you on activity even if you have no results. But YTB also rewards you very hansomely based on results. Earning an extra $500 or $1,000 or more a week can be a tremendous boost to the average family's household, especially when one member is a WAHM!
After I joined YTB, my first goal was to get rid of the $50 monthly maintenance fee. This was the first area that I started achieving success in YTB. After one month of being an RTA and sharing the business with my family and friends, many of whom also loved and joined YTB, our maintenance fee was reimbursed, thus giving us a 100% debt-free business. Our greatest successes in YTB came initially from our warm market, but by our fifth month in the business, we had begun marketing heavily using fliers and postcards and had started a small amount if marketing online... all that resulted in our earning our very first $1,000 bonus! Since then we've had lots of other people join our business from all around the USA, have earned additional bonuses and have had opportunities to take advantage of some of the great travel perks. One of my favorites was last Summer when I spent 5-days at a Sandals resort in Jamaica that I've always dreamed of visiting, at the unbelievable price of only $99. YTB has been good to us, but the best part is that I'm still a WAHM. I feel so blessed just to stay home with our now 20-month-year-old toddler and be able to spend quality time teaching and bonding with her during these very important early years.
Being a work-at-home-mom for me has been a joy. Our successes we attribute to God's grace that rests upon our TEAM. We have an awesome team that includes our upline, downline and even our crossline, and we meet weekly on our "Keeping It Real" conference call where we all brainstorm, share information, train and plan our marketing strategies. On our TEAM, we have the absolute best marketing and graphic design professionals available. Visit our graphic designer's website here. Visit my website by clicking HERE to learn more about YTB.
So this is my story. I am a real work-at-home mom who is achieving real success in YTB. Have I gone as far as I desire? Absolutely not! I still have many goals that I'm working towards realizing one day, one step at a time. The good news is that I have the time to achieve them because I am in YTB for the long haul. If I can assist you or answer any questions you have, please feel free to call or send me a note. I will gladly tell you whatever I know about how to succeed in YTB... what works and what definitely does not work. I can also help you to overcome some of the challenges in YTB because I've had to overcome them myself. If you're a WAHM or if you're a stay-at-home-mom and you WANT TO BE a WAHM or work-at-home-mom, let my story encourage you. If I can do this, absolutely anybody can.
