We’re spotlighting Sapphire Consultant Alyssa Urmwoanpiy who took the initiative after being fed up with her dead-end job to motivate herself and take control of her life. She talks about  respecting others, focusing on personal development, setting goals, and following through with her team.

What is “that moment” when you realized that you need changes in your life? A change for the better.

I didn’t really have a “moment”. I just always knew that I wasn’t happy and felt unappreciated at work. Then one day, the last straw was when I found out that some girl out of high school got the same promotion as I did when she was only there for 6 months and I was there for 3 years. I came home to my family all grouchy, moody, and mean. I knew I shouldn’t have been treating the people who love me the most with no respect, so I knew I had to leave wherever I was and find something better.

What is your Zone 1?

My Zone 1 is constantly sampling people and following up with them. Show the plan, have meetings, and sign people up. Get them started. Schedule and start meetings for new people.

How long did it take you to reach your current rank?

It took me 3 months to reach Sapphire, which was how long I was in the business.

What were your goals?

I set a goal for the month of June when we returned home from Go Diamond to hit Platinum Elite but I passed Platinum Elite and hit Sapphire.

How did you accomplish them?

To accomplish those goals, I kept having respect for myself and everyone in my organization. I focused on personal development and plugged into my up line.

Did you have any role models?

Mrs. Ideta for always sharing her knowledge and values with me.

What is your next goal?

My next goal is to hit Diamond within this next year.

Where do you see yourself a few years from now?

In a few years, I see myself traveling and breaking new pin levels, developing new leaders, and changing lives for families.

What advice do you have for new Distributors?

The advice I give to new Distributors is to always stay plugged in to your up line. Stay close to the fire. Read and listen to personal development. Remember your goals and most importantly ask “Why?” Believe bigger than ever. Sample people wherever you are. You never know who could be your next Diamond.

What motivated you to success?

What motivated me to my success is seeing how much I have grown as a person. I never thought I could ever be like this. Seeing other people doing the business makes me happy.

Do you have any mantras you would like to share?

How you do anything is how you do everything. Believe bigger than you ever did.

What did you offer yourself with your $100 received from ORGANO™?

I bought Go Diamond tickets. Best thing I ever did. It changed my life.

You qualified for the Seas the Moment incentive cruise. How does it feel?

The impact it has on me is that if you truly believe, you will achieve. Qualifying has also taught me to dream bigger and make bigger goals. I am very excited, grateful, and blessed to have qualified to go on the biggest boat on earth. Never thought in a million years I would go on a cruise.
