Why did you get started with Moms Making Six Figures?
I was introduced to Moms Making Six Figures by Dr. Barbara Ryan. I was looking for additional income, as I have been self-employed for the last fifteen years. When I sat down with her, I realized how knowledgeable she was and the opportunity to partner with the company just made sense. The entire Moms team welcomed me with open arms.
They made me feel and believe that I am able to accomplish all my financial and personal goals with them. The extra salary working with Moms Making Six Figures will generate for us will be amazing.
In your opinion, what is the biggest factor in becoming successful with your businesses?
The biggest factor in becoming successful is hard work and dedication. My parents brought me here from The USSR (Moscow) when I was just 6-years old. We basically came here with nothing. Watching my parents put in the hard work to achieve and provide for us was really inspirational. They instilled in me that I can accomplish anything if I dedicate myself to it.
Learning these skills at a young age encouraged me to work hard and push on whenever I need to. I started my company, LuminEssence (Permanent hair removal), with the help of my mother 15 years ago. I was so scared. Being a small business owner was a big investment, especially without really knowing what the outcome would be. Fortunately, my business has been a success. I guess you could have figured that out, since it’s been 15 years. (Haha!) But on a serious note, I really worked at making my business a success. I learned how to communicate with all types of people. I also learned how important follow up and follow through is. These abilities have helped me propel my Moms Making Six Figures business, too!
