My Apriori Beauty journey began back in March of 2015 when I offered to host a “Launch” party for my daughter Olivia, who had just joined as an Apriori Beauty Consultant. It was at the party where I experienced the products and was so impressed by what I was putting on my skin that I signed up that evening as an Independent Consultant and purchased 99% of the products.
Being married, in my 50’s with three children between the ages of 15 and 27, and working part-time as a Pediatric Nurse, I’m around people of all ages who are interested in anti-aging skincare. In building and growing my business, I’ve adopted one of Apriori Beauty’s mantra as my own, Use Love Share. It’s always my opening line and when you use, love, and believe in a product, it’s very easy to sell.
I work in a busy office so I started off by sharing with my female co-workers. I brought in samples for everyone and left catalogs on their desks. Before long, I had everyone using Apriori Beauty. I then hosted a Beauty Bar where I invited my tennis teammates and girlfriends. Again, the products impressed all of them! One of my favorite times is when my daughter Olivia and I joined forces and brought in lunch for the women in my husband’s office for a special Mother’s Day treat. My husband had even purchased the Celloxylin® In the Bag Set for all the women. From that luncheon, I signed up and sponsored my first Apriori Beauty Consultant!
Since joining in March, my business has grown steadily. I always travel with samples and share at every opportunity I get. When it comes to samples, I like to make the extra effort and put them in lovely samples bags that include the product catalog and my business card. For me, packaging and presentation are vital when introducing the products, as it’s my potential Clients’ first exposure to Apriori Beauty. One valuable tip I’ve learned from fellow Consultant and Executive Director, Lisa Adam is to get the email address from the people you share samples with. That way, you can follow-up with them and get that much closer to a sale. In addition to handing out samples and developing a follow-up system, I’ve found that purchasing Apriori Beauty gift cards (you can get $25 gift cards for only $20 when you’re a Sr. Consultant/Manager/Director!) and using them to cover the cost of shipping for Clients has greatly benefited my sales. Spending a little on a luncheon or free shipping really does go a long way when you’re growing your business.
Along with being impressed with Apriori Beauty as a Company, I appreciate the standards by which the products are developed. There are a lot of skincare products on the market, but not all of them are safe nor effective. Being an Apriori Beauty Consultant has been an incredible journey that I’m blessed to be experiencing alongside my daughter Olivia. I’m excited to expand my business and continue Sharing products I Use and Love.

Maybe it was law of attraction because I wasn’t actively looking for a direct sales company when I found out about Apriori Beauty. In the back of my mind, I had been quietly thinking about what I wanted to do once I retired from my current profession of teaching diabetes education and nutrition. I knew I wanted to keep working with a good salary, but it needed to be on my schedule. It all started in the summer of 2013 when I joined Sharon Michaels’ MasterMind group. I had never heard of Sharon Michaels but frustrated with my own productivity at work and in need of a business coach and mentor, I took a chance. It was through the group and Sharon that I was introduced to Apriori Beauty and my future Consultant sponsor, Elizabeth (Liz) Dyke.
When I first heard of Apriori Beauty, I was so fascinated by its name that I immediately looked it up online and was taken to this beautiful website of anti-aging skincare. As someone who’s aging and wants to slow down the process, I was intrigued. Struggling with all the skin problems you often experience postmenopausal, I tried many high-end skincare lines but never found myself impressed with any of them. I reached out to Liz, who then sent me the Celloxylin® 6-strip skincare sample and a sample of the Celloxylin® Enzyme Activated Micro Scrub, recommending I combine the Crème Cleanse with the Micro Scrub. Upon sampling the products, it was in love right away. It was like being at a spa right in my own bathroom! I just had to know more about these products. After chatting with Liz, I decided to become an Apriori Beauty Independent Consultant to start building my own business.
I work full-time, so for me the most efficient way to Use Love Share is at vendor events. Being an educator, I’m comfortable with being in front of large groups of people and have noticed I work best in that environment. I’ve also signed up with local networking groups, including a weekly lunch group, a book club, and a monthly fundraiser group called “Women and Wine.” Whereas I had attended a few Beauty Bars hosted by fellow Consultants, I didn’t host my own till this last May. I don’t know why I waited so long because it was a huge success - I even booked a Beauty Bar for one of my Clients! My networking groups played a huge role in expanding my clientele list, thus making my Beauty Bar the success it turned out to be. Staying disciplined and focused on my business, attending networking meetings, following-up with Clients, and providing exceptional customer service have all been important factors in expanding my retail business and giving me a bigger weekly paycheck.
There’s many benefits to being an Apriori Beauty Consultant, but one of them is that there’s several ways to make money. Some Consultants are team builders, some are retailers, and some are both. For me, it starts with retailing, which I believe is the key to building my team. If a Client uses and loves the products, they may decide to become a Consultant and start building their own business. I’m really excited about the prospect of building a team because I love educating women about creating beautiful skin and showing them how it’s connected to their self-confidence. I consider beautiful skin part of health and wellness.
Since joining Apriori Beauty, I’ve experienced this wonderful community of women who are always going out of their way to support and help each other. Our community plus the fact that with Apriori Beauty, you can earn an unlimited income, sealed my decision to become a Consultant. At my age, you just can’t beat that!
