Recognizing strong Team Leaders who have embraced the power of team building

I USE Apriori Beauty because it makes me more beautiful - inside and out
I LOVE Apriori Beauty because the beauty I feel is reflected on my face
I SHARE Apriori Beauty because there is enough beauty to go around and I want as many people as possible to have their own Apriori Beauty success stories

I first became acquainted with Apriori Beauty back in 2012 while visiting a local day spa where I was stationed for work at the time. The spa used Apriori Beauty’s products in their signature facial, leaving my skin glowing and blemish-free. Having suffered with adult acne and eczema for over 30 years, I loved how luxurious my skin felt and how radiant it looked. The spa relocated soon after and it wasn’t until a year and a half later that I came across Apriori Beauty again while researching health and wellness direct sales opportunities.

I was thrilled to be reunited with Apriori Beauty’s products, but more importantly, I was ecstatic about the business opportunity because I knew the products worked! After watching the Use-Love-Share video and reviewing the compensation plan, I emailed Apriori Beauty and requested to be referred to a Consultant. I was fortunate to be connected to Founder and Executive Director Linda Altergott who telephoned me shortly after, informing me that a Turn Back Time Capsule was in the mail. Within three days of applying the Celloxylin® Cellular Age Advantage line, my skin felt smoother, tighter, and brighter. Plus, as a healthcare professional, I immediately recognized the efficacy of the key ingredients. I thought back to all the money I had wasted on lotions and "magic" potions that made wild promises but no delivery. As compliments on my skin began rolling in by the truckloads, I was certain Apriori Beauty was the right business for me. I had finally found the fountain of youth in Apriori Beauty.

Since becoming an Apriori Beauty Consultant, I’ve learned that consistent action steps, successful criteria, and determination are paramount to building your business. I perform at least 3 activities every day to build my business. It’s important for me to identify these activities that equate to success within the context of my lifestyle, time constraints, priorities and goals. As a new Consultant, my vision of success extends beyond customer sales; I count it a success when I introduce a new person to Apriori Beauty with a product sample. In addition, a follow-up phone call or text message, as well as spending 15 minutes learning about a new product or exploring the Consultant Back Office count as a successful activity. Determination isn't a flower with a season to bloom, wither and eventually cease to exist. Instead, true determination is like an oak tree with deep roots that nourishes the sapling through to maturity. My moto is "Decide what you are going to do, then do it, do it again, and again." It’s my business, so I can remove activities that don't work while repeating the ones that have produced positive results.

I may have only joined Apriori Beauty in June, but I'm already signed up for our annual "Making Life Beautiful" (MLB) convention being held in Las Vegas this November. I'm most looking forward to meeting my sponsor, Linda Altergott, who has been a wonderful resource in teaching me how to build a solid foundation for my Apriori Beauty business. When I was signing up as a Consultant, Linda recommended I attend MLB and told me about all the incredible and priceless experiences she’s gained from going each year. I listen to Linda because I respect her business savvy, I trust her judgment and I want to operate a profitable business just as she has done. I’m excited to hear Apriori Beauty’s strategic direction for 2015 and I know that MLB will be a fantastic opportunity to connect with women from around the country that are passionate about helping other women succeed and reach their goals through Apriori Beauty.

Recognizing outstanding retailing results

It's all about passion and excitement when discussing the products

I am truly blessed by my Apriori Beauty business. It's given me the opportunity to meet and become close with a wide variety of women who share a common passion: helping men and woman look and feel their best through Apriori Beauty. When I first became an Apriori Beauty Consultant, I was more focused on the personal benefits of using the products and receiving a rebate rather than the retailing aspect of the business. Both Kathleen Jones and Terri Lindow (my up-lines), offered to help throw my first Apriori Beauty party, which turned out to be a huge success. Despite the positive responses from the party, it wasn’t until my friends started to notice the improvement in my skin and hair that I felt motivated to dive into retailing. I began sharing my experience with the products, my favorites being the Celloxylin® Cellular Age Advantage line and Derma Firm Illuminator. They could hear the passion and excitement in my voice. Not only did my friends trust the words coming out of my mouth, but standing right in front of them was proof the products work!

Whereas my friends are wonderful Clients, I never limit myself when it comes to retailing and expanding my business. Potential clients are everywhere – work, the grocery store, your kids’ school, even a restaurant you’re having dinner at! It’s for this reason that it’s important to carry brochures and samples everywhere you go because you just might gain a new Client while pumping gas. Even when running a quick errand, I always make an effort to look nice and presentable, especially when it comes to my number one selling point – my face. This way, when I get into a conversation and the topic of skincare is brought up, I can incorporate Apriori Beauty with confidence and ease. And, if they are interested in trying the products and seeing results for themselves, I hand over a sample and follow-up with them three days later.

I have since hosted several more Beauty Bars at my house, which have been instrumental in growing my retailing business. I call them "Love Share Socials" where guests can enjoy sampling the incredible beauty products with their girlfriends. In the invitations, I inform them that each guest will receive $10 off their purchase if they bring a friend. I also like to throw in a special gift (a favorite from their wish list). This small gesture leaves them thrilled and excited, as if I had given them a million dollars. One perk of living so close to Apriori Beauty’s Headquarters, is that I’m able to pick up my Clients’ orders and deliver their products directly to them, saving on shipping costs.

Alongside Beauty Bars, Facebook has been another huge component in spreading the word about Apriori Beauty. Whether I'm "sharing" a post from Apriori Beauty’s page or featuring a blurb on a favorite product of mine, my goal is to share Apriori Beauty with two new Facebook friends a day and Instant Message them as a follow-up. Sharing my testimonial, hosting Beauty Bars, and being actively involved on Facebook have all been contributing factors to my Apriori Beauty success!
