Looking at our incredible Voyager team, we see many stories that are similar to Annie's. Strong women who know how to juggle the biz, fitting into the nooks and crannies of their lives. And they are always busier than most that are seeing the great success. Take Heather Bishop for example. She is attending school, has five kids, runs an in-home daycare, started a foster program for abandoned dogs, and works V3 local shows on the weekends. She wears her button everywhere she goes - even to school. She makes biz building a way of life - sporting her V3 car magnet, she mingles, messages (Facebook) and has fun building her business for the future.

"If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do."
Gretchen Vatter took a leap of faith with getting involved with Voyager. She is a mother of two children, found she and her husband out of work, and wondered how to even drum up enough money to purchase her Pro Pak. But she did it, and even ran out of product before it arrived! She made things happen, set her goals, used the system, and achieved director - and is well on her way to achieving executive. Gretchen is someone who didn't say, "I think I can." She said, "just watch me!"
Stories like this empower all of us to want to do more, set higher goals for ourselves, and reach for the stars. Daring to succeed drives these success stories and is proof positive that with the right attitude and work ethic, anything can be achieved.
Mary Kay Ash (a woman I highly admire and respect) said:
"Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try."
With our strong Voyager women (don't worry men..I will highlight you on Father's Day), They dare to play their own personal "music" by never quitting because they are too busy. They are seen doing local weekend expo's, posting their before and after pictures on Facebook, plaster planning with fliers on bulletin boards, holding up grocery lines sampling the checkout clerk, and they never leave home with their samples of V3. Look at Shannon Jenkins who has gone back to school, is raising her children and building the business whenever she can. She is amazing, and is doing more than just making some extra money in the nooks and crannies of her days. She is setting a strong, important example for her children to follow. They can see first-hand what self-worth and ambition is all about. And that is worth its weight in gold. Shannon has learned how to effectively share Voyager and V3 whenever and wherever she can. Thank you Shannon.
As with all of the ladies from coast to coast, we extend a very "Happy Mother's Day," and thank you for making a difference in so many peoples lives. You are loved, appreciated and admired for everything you are doing. Thank you for sharing your passion, love and success with us. Keep up the great work, and continue with your biz building on the side!
