Part of what drives us at myBeeHyve is celebrating the successes of members of our incredible community! In order to do that, we have created our ‘Bee of the Month’ program to spotlight outstanding members of our community and share their story with you.
We’d like to introduce you to our first Bee of the Month — Sarah Akus! Sarah is based in Raleigh, North Carolina where she lives with her beautiful family — the inspiration for her second career building a successful network marketing business. Get to know Sarah, and learn more about her growing SeneGence makeup and skincare business.
Tell us about your business
“Late last year I found an amazing product, Lipsense, that I really loved. When I had a hard time finding a consultant to buy from, I saw an opportunity to fill a void in the market. I started my home-based and online business in December of 2016, and am a consultant with SeneGence International offering a full skincare and makeup line. What started out as a side business is quickly growing into so much more!”
Why did you decide to go into business for yourself?
“Like many others, there are lots of reasons why. But, ultimately it is because I want to create long-term wealth and financial freedom for myself and my family, while also having the time to enjoy it with them. My dream is to be able to afford a private school education for my children, and to relieve some of the stresses on my husband’s shoulders. We want to spend more family time together without the stress of a “job” hanging over our heads. I am passionate about building my business, despite the inevitable ups and downs we all face. SeneGence has given me an opportunity to finally discover a career that will truly fulfill me.”
What are the biggest challenges you face today?
“Finding time to work is definitely a challenge! I have a full time career that takes a large part of my day — and, we all know being a Mom is a full time job too! I am looking forward to the day I will have the freedom to completely make my own schedule and set my own rules. That’s why I really enjoy the time I get to spend working with my customers and introducing new people to the incredible Lipsense line by SeneGence!”
How has myBeeHyve helped you with your business?
“myBeeHyve has been invaluable for helping me to stay on track with my daily tasks. When I sit down to do my follow ups, I know without thinking exactly who I need to reach out to that day. I don’t have to waste time with guess work or sifting through message after message — it’s all right there for me. myBeeHyve makes it easy for me to access all my contact information at home or on the go.”
Do you have any advice for people interested in starting their own business?
“To truly succeed in Network marketing it takes a commitment to consistently working your business. It takes a renewal of dedication each and every day, and the understanding that success doesn’t happen overnight. You have to be willing to work consistently and faithfully to reach your dreams and goals.”
