Recently, Pam had an amazing experience that she wants to share with you all! A friend shared with her this concept called “picking your hard.” Having lost over 80 lbs., she confessed to Pam it was always hard being overweight — not being able to do the activities she wanted to do or fit the clothes she wanted to wear. So, in order to lose this weight, she had to “pick her hard.” She had to decide: is it harder to keep the weight on, or is it harder to take it off?

In this episode, Pam explores this concept of “picking your hard” and how it relates to MLM and network marketing. Pam picked her hard nearly two decades ago when she decided whether or not to go back to work and leave her family everyday or hustle hard and dive head-first into this new venture of network marketing. Now, she’s going to help you pick your hards as well! She talks about picking up the phone and making calls for the first time, her early self-limiting beliefs and how she overcame them, how she continues to pick her hards everyday, and how you can too!

[2:00] How picking your hard relates to network marketing.

[3:35] Some of the hard experiences Pam went through early on in her network marketing journey.

[5:31] How Pam picks her hard in her everyday life.

[6:33] Pam wants you to pick your hard!

[13:22] Congratulations: you’ve already made the toughest decision! Now what’s next?

[14:47] Pam challenges you to decide what your ‘hards’ are.

[17:14] Pam’s summarizes her key takeaways on picking your hard.

One of Pam’s guests today is Cassie Westlund. She’s 24 years old and joined when she was 20. She’s went from broke college student, working multiple jobs, living paycheck-to-paycheck to living extremely well-off and leading a successful team at It Works.

In this week’s episode, four amazing women from Cassie’s team join her to talk about their own backgrounds with It Works, how they’ve gotten successful through the business, and how they’ve overcome daily challenges and have stay inspired.

Nicole Hassinger is a Presidential Diamond and has been in the business for a little over three years. She joined with the goal of making a couple extra hundred dollars a month but then she caught the vision and it turned into so much more. Emily Wirsing is 24 and has been in the business for a little over three years and is also a Presidential Diamond. As a student, she was lost — but now, with It Works, she’s excited and has a plan. Lindsay, 24 as well, joined It Works in 2015. Before this business, she says she was the typical broke college student working four jobs — and now, she’s a Triple Diamond and cannot wait for what’s to come. And lastly (but certainly not least), Nayara Ribeiro also joins the conversation. Nayara has been with the business for four years but feels like she just joined yesterday with how excited she still is!
