My Story

"If someone offers you an amazing opportunity, and you're not sure you can do it, say yes- then learn how to do it later"   Richard Branson

 

I am Anna. Wife to Jimbob and Mother to Eleanor (aged 4). I have had a successful career of 20 years with a company I hold close to my heart and I love my job if I am honest. My time at ODEON has given me my best friends, my husband and an amazing time where I could celebrate my passion for film.

Upon returning back to work from maternity leave in September 2014, I soon realised, that my life's ambitions I dreamt of and the precious time I craved to spend with my family and friends, were passing me by at the speed of light in exchange for, the day to day making a living routine. I realised I was missing out on precious moments and spending time with both Eleanor and James.

Every day was becoming like groundhog day in regards to same rushed routine of getting up, dropping off Eleanor at Nursery for 8am, rush to park the car in order not to miss the train into London, work 9-5, rush out the door to pick up Eleanor, feeling guilty as I left the rest of the office folk behind frantically working away. We would eventually arrive home at 6.40 pm. Spend 20 mins with Eleanor before her bath and bedtime routine would begin, then eventually sit down with James by 9pm to have dinner. No doubt a familiar story to a lot of people with or without Children

Even with my "reduced" office hours, I still felt I worked first and was a mother and wife second and then not much room for anything else. Me time? What was that? Change was needed if I was to keep my sanity and those around me in years to come.

And so the possibility of a major life change, came in form of an opportunity from a dear old friend in September of 2015 and after lots of research and thinking, I decided to start my own business in November that same year and I have not looked back. FOREVER LIVING had given me an opportunity of investing into a "mini franchise" for just £200 and so I just go on with it. Within 2 months I had made the £200 investment back, and I now earn a nice residual income every month. Whilst working full time, I was able to run business on apart time basis around my full time job and family life commitments, but with a clear vision of what I wanted to achieve and why I continue to build my business.

WHY?

Yes, to eventually be able to work from home with a very successful business and have a work life balance I dream of and to have financial freedom, but, what keeps me motivated in working full time and doing this on top, is simple for me

I needed to be at those school gates for my baby girl when she began school in September this year, and not putting her into before and after school clubs or someone else to have those moments with her. 

On achieving some other key business goals I have set myself in the next 2-5 years, the other benefits will result in safeguarding our future and ensuring we can live the life we love to live and to spend more quality time with each other and friends.

I am pleased to say that I now am home based full time to take Eleanor to school and pick her up and am able to work my business in the hours I choose to. I am very excited on where this journey will take me and who I meet and help on the way.

Since I started my journey with FOREVER, I have already helped customers lose a collective 200 +lbs and countless inches. I have shared and recommended products and have received amazing feedback from customers on skin improvements and relief from the power of aloe vera drinking gel and some of the fantastic skincare products. I have not even started to "scratch the surface" as they say with a huge range of products still to share.

The feeling I get helping people is so fulfilling, through using these fabulous products as I could not recommend something I did not believe in. I am now sharing the opportunity and helping others to build their own businesses and I will work with my business colleagues to help them get closer to achieving their business and life goals throughout 2017 and beyond. It’s amazing to be able to share such a great opportunity with others and know that I could be helping them change their future.

FOREVER has helped millions of people, from all around the world, achieve dreams that they never imagined possible.

FOREVER has given me the chance to share a wonderful opportunity and amazing products with the entire world. I have achieved financial independence and better health through this amazing opportunity. If you are serious about your health and taking control of your financial future, then FOREVER is the perfect opportunity for you!

Forever Living Products began its operations in the UK in 1992 and has grown from nothing, to being the largest provider of aloe vera products in the UK in a very short period of time. Early in 1994, the Company moved to prestigious Longbridge Manor in Warwick, now its UK headquarters.

Forever Living Products began its operations in Ireland in 1991, where Rex Maughan purchased the Magheramorne Estate in 2000 as its headquarters; an ideal location to serve an expanding business throughout Ireland.

In 1998 we achieved 12th place in a national survey of the fastest-growing privately-owned companies, conducted by ‘Real Business’ magazine and Dun & Bradstreet. In 2000, the ‘Independent on Sunday’ named the Company as 15th in its annual list of Top Achievers (18 June 2000).

Forever UK has grown year-on-year since first trading in 1992. So far in 2014, the UK has experienced record sales.

The Company has won a variety of awards. In April 2007, Forever was presented with the Investors in People Award, for the second time running, with excellent reviews honoring Forever for having ‘a very supportive culture, putting people and their wellbeing at the forefront of everything the organisation stands for’ (Evans, A. 2007 Investors in People Post Recognition Review Report for Forever Living Products (UK) Ltd).
