I grew up in rural Cariboo Country in British Columbia Canada surrounded by the great outdoors, meadows and horses. My Dad was a fisherman and a logger and I was fortunate to be a child with a stay-at-home Mom, with my younger brother and sister. My weekends were full of camping, gold panning, fishing, hiking, horse riding clinics and shows.
I spent most of my youth in 4-H Horse Clubs. It instilled a heart and passion for self-development, continuous education, creativity, of learning to do by doing and knowing that helping others helps ourselves.
I had many family members in “the business.” Many of my relatives were involved with various network marketing companies. I recall going to “home meetings” and listening for hours on end those cassette tapes in my Grandparents car! ?
Fast forwarding to the age of 19 I moved 10 hours away from “home” to go to college in Olds, Alberta, Canada. Years roll on and as a young mom, I had many friends that were in lots of different businesses, and though I was always everyone’s best customer attending endless parties and events, everyone’s best cheerleader; I never really felt the pull to join any of them.
I remember years of working one, two, sometimes three jobs while raising my children, Chandra and Nathan. I was fully focused on them, my big country yard, flower beds, garden, rabbits, chickens and also raising some fine Quarter Horse fillies and colts. It wasn’t until my kids were almost grown and I was in my mid 40s that I finally got “pulled” emotionally and mentally to Network Marketing…
Which upon reflection makes me smile as I wonder how and why it took me so long… Because I have always had an entrepreneurial adventuring heart. I remember selling worms as a kid, riding my horse to the store picking up soda bottles along the way for cash. As a young woman would take in others colts and fillies riding and training them for a month for $$. Then buying good large ponies and training them as kids mounts all summer selling them as “Christmas Ponies” presents. Doing small landscaping projects, and delivering truck loads of dirt for happy gardeners…
In 2006 I moved “into” town from the country rural life and had taken on a new position with the same company for 13 years. Unfortunately in less than six months of me taking the promotion a shift occurred in upper management within the company that began causing me negative health issues. The kind of ones that causes panic attacks, deep chest pains, my hair began falling out, unexpected weight gain, depression and me wanting to sleep ALL the time..
I started to be “open” to ideas and opportunities that would help me leave my toxic, but great paying job. With my children grown and Facebook gaining momentum as a social connector; I was pulled back to my primary love of helping others.
I ventured excitedly into the world and adventure of Internet Marketing in the fall of 2013 and quickly burnt through my “warm market” and picked up many of the ineffectual “bad habits” in attempts to build my business on Facebook. I possessed zilch for social media marketing skills and reminiscing a bit; didn’t really understand even the basics of building a sustainable viable business nor a deep understanding of how the amazing industry really works…
So like so many other friends and marketers out there on Social Media; I had two choices…
Quit or Figure It Out
Again I focused on “being open” to learning; and sought to understand social media and marketing. I was introduced to a professional networking community in the summer of 2015 that empowered me to move forward. I was eager to learn and apply “How it would feel IF YOU DIDN’T have to chase your friends or hound your family; nor send endless un-replied to messages in social media”.
By discovering these skills; taking daily action and tackling techniques, it quickly re-built my faith and belief of success in our profession. It impressed upon me again how much I loved empowering, uplifting, encouraging and teaching other ladies in their primary, beloved businesses.
My friend Suzy across the globe in Kenya wrote on my page “Roxanne is truly our angel of light and sweetness contributing with her always positive mindset helping you see and understand your greater purpose and gifts in your beloved business. Her spirit uplifts anyone she is around and is a pure delight. Her diligence and caring spirit is refreshing and encouraging.”
I made the decision to pass on the wealth of knowledge, hope and empowerment; becoming a Woman’s online home business cheerleader (coach) in late 2015. As time flies and the world keeps spinning I have hit multiple ranks within my businesses, crossed stages, been featured as “Woman of the Month” in Business Branding Groups because of my continuous contributions; and been interviewed by other top earner company teams.
I love helping ladies succeed in their Network Marketing Businesses and I make new friends daily around the world! I am a true Cheerleader!
I regularly attend Networking, Training and Empowerment Events; taking in continuous online educational courses and boot camps. I am constantly upping my skills to help my friends and clients.
I deeply believe this business is not difficult if you are prepared to follow some guidelines and invest some time into following a very simple blueprint that can take you from where you are now, to where you want to be. Imagine the freedom and gift of working from home full-time around you and your families needs; with less stress and more bless in your life!
I truly believe that “Together We are More” within the alliances and friendships we make. Within my own private coaching and within our amazing community and industry I have worked with tremendous women!
I currently live in Edson, Alberta, Canada with my husband Bob. Now living in town, I traded in my horses for a Harley Davidson Trike. We love to travel western Canada and the USA for several weeks each year. I love working from my garden patio, puttering in our flower gardens, spending time with our kids, ageing parents and family. Truly loving the blessings that this “Lap Top Life” has given me and my family.
