We are proud to feature Trisha Lewis of Perfectly Posh as this week’s Profile in Success! Trisha has an amazing story to share about how direct sales is building her dream life!
“Growing up, I always wanted to be a nurse and was privileged to pursue that dream. I received my
nursing degree in 2002, and worked as an LVN for 4 years before moving to Germany as a military wife. While living abroad for 2 years, I was unable to work outside the home since I was a foreigner, so (by default), became a typical “housewife.”
The military moved us back to the states in 2007, where we were stationed in Alabama. However, my Texas nursing degree was not valid there, so I was unable to pursue my passion. Wanting to do
“something,” I started my own home-based business taking military tops and making purses out of them. While it was fun and provided a creative outlet for me, it also kept me tied to my sewing machine. So if I wasn’t sewing, I wasn’t making money, meaning if I wanted time out to do things with my family or go on vacation, money wasn’t coming in.
It was time for a change! Growing up, my mom and aunt were always hostessing home parties….from cosmetics and beauty supplies, to food containers and home decorations. I remember having to go to bed early because they were having ANOTHER party. As a kid I never questioned or wondered what was behind these parties, but as an adult, it made perfect sense! Direct selling was a way to earn an income without being “tied” down and to have the freedom to do what I wanted, when I wanted. So I decided to put the army purses to bed and jumped on the direct selling bandwagon in 2011, selling home décor items. What I thought would be just extra spending money quickly equated into a team of 30-something and full-time pay!
In 2012, I stumbled upon a startup direct sales company with wide-open opportunity. Against all odds, I jumped ship and took a leap of faith. “WOW!” is the only way to describe what has happened since then. My $99 investment has proven to be one of the best decisions of my life. My first paycheck paid for 2 tanks of gas; my 3rd one covered the car payment. By my 6th paycheck, I was able to pay the mortgage. Things have steadily increased since then. This past December, I was able to take my family of 7 to Disney World for Christmas, and now my monthly bonus check is more than what many people earn in an entire year.
In my first 2 years with this company, I was promoted 5 times, being the first to promote to Platinum
level, as well as being inducted into the Pinnacle Club, which is the top honor for consultants. I have
also been recognized as the first person to put our company on the Texas map. Since joining, I have
earned the annual incentive trip each year, have been invited to participate in Leadership Conferences with the company’s top executives, as well as numerous conventions and seminars around the
country…18 trips so far! Earlier this year, I became a speaker and trainer for the company, teaching
consultants how to succeed in this business.
I just celebrated my 3rd anniversary with the company and have a down line of nearly 4,000. My team is one of the largest in the company, and we are smashing records on our journey to the top. I continue to be amazed at the blessings I have been given thru this opportunity. I love the people I work with, I love my customers, I love everything about this business! The paychecks, jewelry, trips and prizes are great, but being able to be a full-time wife and parent, and partaking in all of my family’s events…that’s priceless. I really couldn’t ask for anything more.”
