Sharing FOREVER Far & Wide
This past weekend, a remarkable goal was achieved by an incredible FOREVER Ambassador. On Sunday, March 31, Marianna Curran hit the mark of $100,000 in personal cash sales for the year.
This has never been achieved by an Ambassador before, and we at the Home Office are ecstatic. Of course, we are awed and humbled by Marianna’s commitment to the FOREVER mission. But we are also amazed by how many people have discovered FOREVER through Marianna’s hard work!
I talked with Marianna, who is a Senior Executive Ambassador and has been with FOREVER since January 2015, about how she reached this milestone. She graciously answered all my questions and even provided some valuable advice for Ambassadors who are focused on growing their own businesses.
“I'm amazed that I hit $100,000 in a year,” Marianna told me. “I attribute my success to being willing to share all FOREVER products. I have all our products in my arsenal when I speak to people. I listen to their needs and try to find the solution to their biggest pain point.” While Marianna’s favorite thing to promote is FOREVER Storage bundled with a conversion box (this combination is just so practical for someone getting into FOREVER!), she prioritizes the needs of the person she’s speaking with above her own agenda.
Marianna is tough as well as flexible. “I'm not discouraged by ‘no’s...I never take it personally. When you have enough people in your pipeline, you can easily brush off the ‘no’s because, really, they just mean ‘no, not now.’ I sell with confidence in knowing that I am backed up by this awesome company run by people who really care what we think and put into practice many of our suggestions.”
I asked Marianna how she felt after working so hard all year. “I love that I work with very strong women (and a few good men) who are as hardworking and passionate about this business as I am,” she responded. “So it's easy to get up every morning and keep moving my business ahead when I have such awesome support from my fellow Ambassadors and the Home Office.”
When asked if she had any words of advice for Ambassadors looking to grow their own businesses, Marianna said, “I would encourage Ambassadors to get out of their own way. Get outside of their social circles and challenge themselves to do something that makes them feel uncomfortable - only then can they grow. Baby steps, one foot in front of the other. Learn from others and listen to their counsel and suggestions. And have fun! People love people who are having fun!”
Congratulations to Marianna and to every FOREVER Ambassador who is dedicated to our mission of sharing and preserving photos for generations. Learn more about becoming an Ambassador here.
