I am a school teacher and fitness instructor. I have never done my job for a paycheck, but I am not a Mother Teresa type by any stretch either. I like my vacation, I like my retirement BUT I DO my jobs because I love them and I feel like day to day I actually make a difference. I realize this isn’t the way everyone operates, but as I launch this company, a larger question intrigues me.
Would it be possible to make a difference and feel called to serve AND to be paid handsomely?
I think this it possible, in fact I love that I believe this to be true.
I am thinking of a conversation I had this week with my friend Alma who has been transformed by the supplement (Thrive) that I am recently promoting. She is finding that if she recommends it to people it feels inauthentic to also be PAID for her referrals. She made me think. Can you be honest and share YOUR experience and not be attached to the outcome? Is the truth tainted if we are being paid? Can we LOVE and also profit?
These questions live inside of me and feel large as I launch a new example of BOTH/AND. I believe we need some new models and this excites me.
What do you think?
