Why are you here?

your c+i why

When is the last time that you sat down and thought about why you became a Merchandiser? Has it changed since you first filled out your application or accepted your invitation? What brought on that change? Is this business everything you expected and more? Is it missing the mark somewhere?


Let's start first with your "why" as it is today. What keeps you coming back each month, even for a sale or two? What keeps you thinking "Gosh, I should just do something with my business." What keeps you pushing to that next incentive level? It's different for all of us and that's one of the fantastic things about our community.


It has been a long time since I've shared my why, so I hope you don't mind if I spill a little of my mind here.


As a #mompreneur, I needed an outlet that was dedicated to me and only me. My husband works long shifts, 24 on/48 off as a firefighter and operates his own business on his "days off." My days with 2 kids (under 2 at the time) were sometimes long and I really needed something for me. Adult interaction. Time to work my brain.


I went looking and found Chloe + Isabel with a random google search. This company checked every single box {which I didn't imagine possible} on my list. The more I continue to grow with this company, the more my 'why' evolves. It started with ME. Chloe + Isabel was an outlet for me, time dedicated to myself, and the chance to treat myself from time to time. Then I realized... this IS for my FAMILY, too. If I work hard at my business, I can contribute to my family's overall financial goals. I am a happier and more confident person because of c+i. I am learning skills that will help me in the future. I love the community that I am a part of.


Some days are hard. Some days my business seems to work itself. And then still, some days I feel a little discouraged. Some days I need a little pick me up and I turn to our community.


That's it. Simple as that. My why: Me + My Family.


Now, will you tell me more about yours?
