NuCerity congratulates one of our newest Rubies, Amanda Harvey, from Western Australia, Australia. Find out her tips for building a successful business and Creating Beautiful Lives…
I was introduced to NuCerity completely by chance. I was attending a dinner, which I had previously said that I couldn’t attend, and then changed my plans at the last moment. I am eternally grateful for that change in my plans.
My journey to Ruby started purely with wanting to help my teenage sons with Acne. I wasn’t really interested in the business side of it. I was intrigued, but I had been involved in Network Marketing before and wasn’t sure if it was for me. I was adjusting to life as a solo parent with 3 teenagers after ending an 18 year union. Life was at a very uncertain stage, and the position I was in financially was nothing short of stressful.

My first thoughts were, “There is no way I can afford these products, and I definitely wouldn’t be able to afford them every month.” But, I didn’t want to put my children onto any harsh medications in the hope to clear their acne. I scraped together enough money to purchase a pack that came with the option of earning my initial investment back in bonuses. I really didn’t know what I was doing, but after being asked if I was open to sharing and being reassured that I wouldn’t have to do the presentation myself, it seemed simple enough! Give people choice, and they’ll either say yes or no!
My goal was to share with enough people to have the cost of my products paid for and I’d be happy with that… job done! But then something happened that changed my way of thinking. My friend who came with me to the first presentation I attended sent a message regarding her son. It changed everything, and I just stopped worrying about what people thought of me. I had introduced my friend to a product that helped her son, and it was simple for me, but her message moved me. Helping a child to be comfortable in their skin is far more powerful than being stuck in my own head and worrying about what people will think of me!

One of the questions I have been asked is, “What has helped you to be successful?” I guess that depends on how you define success. Success is not giving up and celebrating all of the small achievements. Success is being grateful, being giving, and helping others whether it benefits you or not. Success is shared amongst your team members. You cannot be successful by yourself in this business, and that is the part that I love the most. The community we have is the biggest success to me. Success is learning and becoming a better version of yourself. Success is being open and coachable. Success is getting over yourself and out of your own head.
My advice for others would be to not be afraid to look at an opportunity. Try not to discount something if you don’t know what it is. Don’t prejudge, and don’t make a decision for someone else. I had no money, but I was still given the chance to decide for myself! Looking back, I couldn’t afford not to do this! I will be forever grateful at how much my life has changed.
I am happy and I love what I do. I smile every day, so I guess that’s my definition of success.
