View Full Version : Considering Coming Back to MB

Hi everyone,


I was a distributor for Mia Bella at last year for about 8 months. I was actually with them twice. The first time it was just not the right time for me and the second time, well I am not really sure what happened.


I LOVE Mia Bella candles and still burn them. I have a ton of votives left over. Everyone I used to sell them too loves them and I have been getting inquiries about them from past customers.


I am thinking about joining again, before I was a diamond team leader with 6 recruits and was actually making some decent money.


My biggest issue now is that I am working on my candy wrapping business and am not sure how to juggle both.


Any comments/advice would be appreciated.


THanks.


JC

Hi JC,


It is nice to have you hear in the forum and it is wonderful to hear that you are thinking of coming back to us.


I also have other business besides Mia Bella. It has been hard at time but I would not change it for the world. They work very well together, which is what has probably helped me out. They do not conflict at all with one another.


I would love to talk to you more about what your needs are and how we could possible work things out. PM me if you would like my phone number. It never hurts to talk things out!


Many Blessings,


Natalie

Hi JC! NIce to see you from the custom letter forum. You been hiding lol??? I really don't have much to add, you already know how great this biz is, but you do need to set aside some time to work this biz as well as your others. Maybe 1 day to each different biz would work. Before you join make sure you pick a sponsor who will be there for you and work with you to make you achieve your goals!! :)

Hi frances,


How are you? I have been hiding in the crafting forum,lol. How is the letter biz going for you? I am incorporating that into the candy bar wrapping biz of mine.


Also I got engaged on Christmas morning, so been really busy. That is another thing. My last sponsor, though I loved her, I need a bit more attention then she was giving. Its all about finding that balance.

Yep we are GROWING fast! When I joined in July we were only in the low 9000's and have grown that much! The new sites are awesome, I love the new layout and pictures. We have new pillars that came out last fall at the fling. They are really pretty looking. I can't wait to get my COTM this month, since I have seen everyone saying how great it is!! I am jealous lol.


So do you have any specific questions you want to ask or anything like that? We would all be glad to help you out. :)

Very true, Lyndsey!


Everybody that I show the SO&amp;CP to just LOVES IT!!


And JC:
Good luck on you decision to join us again. I am also a Home Style Specialist with AtHome America in addition to my Mia Bella business. I haven't had any trouble managing things so far!


I am starting my craft fair booth soon....and hope that my 2 companies won't interfere with each other. I am also getting ready to have #3........so we'll see how much time gets delegated where!


One thing's for sure, though.........Mia Bella will be in my life FOREVER!!

I just wanted to say hello, JC!

Congrats on your engagement! My sister is getting married in June.
She's so excited and I'm sure you are, too. She's giving votives away
as favors and we're trying to decide on a scent/color right now. If
anyone has suggestions her colors are pink &amp; beige! I'm thinking
Victorian Rose, but am stuck w/ the beige :)



I am new with Mia Bella. I have used &amp; sold candles in my massage
practice for the last 9 years, and am so excited to have a cleaner
alternative. I can't wait to see how my clients like them. Good luck
with your decision to return. It takes some experimenting sometimes to
settle into something, and the timing does have to be right for you.
The businesses I've chosen all blend perfectly with my massage biz.
I've chosen products that will enhance my treatments and help my
clients. Only you can decide if it's the right time to add to your
current business. It sounds like they would compliment each other, but
you have to do what you are comfortable with. At least, you know
you will use the candles yourself should you decide not to work it as a
business. Best of luck in your decision. It's wonderful to meet you.
Everyone here is so open and helpful. That alone says a lot for the
company!



Take care,

Jennifer

Hello JC and welcome back, glad to have you with us again.


As far as balancing two businesses... you can do it but it takes alot of prioritzing and balancing.


I have 3 children, work part time at their school during the day and also have a cosmeceutical business I run along withmy Mia Bella business.


Myhusband works 2nd shift so he is not at homein the afternoon/evening to help out with the kids. I am a girl scout leader to two troops, do the sports withmy kids, running doingthe errands, homework, take care of two horsesand run off to work each day. If I can do it, I think anyone can.


I am busy but I am organized. I use a planner and it helps keep me focused on what I need to do each day between my family and businesses. Balancing everything out can be tricky at times but I do make a committment to at least work each of my businesses 1/2 hour a day.. that's only an hour a day and both businesses are growing... maybe not as fast as I would like, but it's happening and I know you can do it too.


Life is hectic for everyone, but balancing and staying persistant and consistant is what it takes. (I don't watch tv either.. no time! smileys/smiley36.gif)


Best wishes and many blessings,
