Wonderful Woman is a weekly post on Wednesday with a boss lady. It’s important for women to empower, motivate, encourage and to love one another. One woman’s story and success is an inspiration for another. I hope you enjoy these stories! If you are or would like to suggest a Wonderful Woman to be apart of the series, please email me at ToryLava41@gmail.com with your or their story!
Wonderful Woman – Samantha Brindley
Meet Samantha Brindley, Fairfield, California. She is married, first time mom, active duty member of the coast guard, and a young living distributor! Samantha is dedicated, resilient & loving, and this is my story as an amateur stay at home Mommy, finding herself in her own business.
Q&A With Samantha:
A: When I’m not at my full-time job in the coast guard, I work from home helping to spread love and awareness for essential oils from young living!
Q: How did you get into the business you are in today?
A: A good friend friend of mine introduced me to young living close to when I was having my son, and I’ve been hooked ever since and started the business side of everything with her and an amazing group of girls
Q: What is the biggest challenge you have faced & overcame?
A: My biggest challenge is to open up and reach out to people that I don’t know. This took me a while. I normally make small talk with people in passing, but now I find myself WANTING to engage with everyone! I can be an introvert and close myself off because it’s easy. Since I started my business I host events, I talk to strangers, I go to other people’s events and I am much more out of the house!
Q: What is your work motto?
A: I would have to say “to embrace”. I normally am a very instant gratification type of person. But since starting my business I have learned to just “Embrace” all the good and the bad that comes my way and take it for what it is and continue on with what I have my heart set on next.
Q: What is the best advice to give someone who is interested in sales?
A: GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE! You don’t have to be an amazing sales person I for one am not. But getting out of your comfort zone taking chances talking to people, having relationships being personable. Show them how what your “selling” is a lifestyle. People will buy because they can relate to you as a person. Post about it share it with someone in front of you in line. People love daily routine and making something a lifestyle will sell itself.
Q: What do you like most about this industry?
A: I love the closeness and the support. I have support and love from women I have never met except for online through a Facebook group. And they are so empowering it motivates me to keep going!
Q: What would you want to tell your 15-year-old self?
A: I would say first off, you’re always enough. You don’t have to excel in everything you’re going to fail and it’s okay as long as you keep going towards your goals. And to make more than one goal!
Q: What does girl power mean to you?
A: Empowerment and a lifeline. I can’t begin to explain how many days I have felt so down and needed a Girls day to reboot myself. Being around my business girls and my best friends is so uplifting.
And that’s this week Wonderful Woman!
Thank you, Samantha, for being a positive role model, spreading peace, love & healing to others.
