"I am so THANKFUL for this past year and what it has brought not only my family but so many others!!! January 1st last year  was a life changing day for me and my family, that was the day I bought my first 3 day trial pack. It was also a blessing from God in disguise. You see, on January 2nd I signed up to be a Plexus Ambassador hoping to get my product for free because I KNEW the product worked and could help a few of my friends. Little did I know though that the end of January would bring a shocking life change for not only me, but my family as well.
To give you a little background I worked as a clerk for our local License Bureau here in Sikeston for almost 6 years. In April of 2012, I left our local office to take a pay raise and office manager position at another local office. Things were going great there! I hated the commute everyday but it was worth it! My boss was so great! She made my hours 9-4:15 since I had a 25 minute drive everyday and had to take my kids to school and pick them up. Great right?! Well, end of January 2013 my daughter Zoe' got really sick and had to be hospitalized. After 3 days of her being in the hospital and me having to call in everyday because each day we were hoping she would get released, my boss that was so great before gave me an ultimatum, it was either going to be my daughter or my job. Well, sorry folks, my family is more important than any job so my daughter it was!
What was my saving grace through all of this?! PLEXUS! Ironically enough, the week Zoe' was first sick I Fast Started Gold and because of some customer service issues I had trying to verify my Fast Start, our CEO Tarl Robinson had PERSONALLY called me. While on the phone with Tarl he asked me what my goals were with Plexus and whether or not eventually becoming a stay at home mom was one of those, I laughed and told him I would LOVE to be a stay at home mom but my husband would never let me. God knew what was in store for me and prepared me in a way that day WITHOUT my knowing! That next week was Plexus Payday and on that check was my Fast Start bonus which took care of that income I had lost due to Zoe's illness. I now am a stay at home mom! I NOW HAVE ACHIEVED GOALS I WOULD HAVE NOT EVER SET FOR MYSELF 2 YEARS AGO!
I could write a book, so let me sum up for you February - December in this last paragraph. In February I hit Gold and Sr. Gold rank advancements which totally took care of my Full-Time income I had been earning. April was another big rank advancement, Ruby! In May again, rank advancement to Senior Ruby! June was a big month, CONVENTION! Totally a life changing event there, everyone needs to attend! In August I earned a Plexus Lexus and a trip every year to Maui! Also in August I found out that our family of 4 was becoming a family of 5! October earned a trip to Amelia Island, Florida for Leader's Retreat, and in December I received an awesome Christmas Present from the company, a Plexus Jacket!
Throughout these last 12 months I have had acquaintances that have become best friends that are more like family because of our bonds through Plexus. Plus, I now feel like I have a second family of nearly 5,000 team members.
This year has been such a blessing, and no, I didn't get through this without shedding a few tears thinking about 'why me?' Picking up my Plexus Lexus this past weekend was a dream come true. This truly would not be possible without my awesome downline and amazing upline! Thank you Plexus for making my ordinary life turn into a life that I can take pride in getting to help others!"
