Welcome to my part of the world. I’m LaKeisha Hankins, devoted wife, mom of 4 beautiful girls, friend, and home based business owner, Network Marketing Professional.
I was born and raised in Sin City~ Las Vegas, but recently relocated to Georgia to offer my children a better quality of life. I was raised like many with the idea to go to college, get a degree, and get a good job and I did just that. As we added to our family, my responsibilities changed. My roles as a wife, mother, friend, and sister had completely taken over my life, I was more consumed with trying to satisfy everyone else and there was no time for “me” and I started feeling like I was working just to pay the bills and not enjoying life and time with my family.
I deeply desired to be home raising my children and earning a full time income and enjoy the life I had once imagined for us. I realized it was time to follow my inner knowing and make my dreams a reality.
After a lot of research and self education, I opted for a career in Network Marketing. I got my first taste of direct sales in 2005 I had partnered with an awesome direct sales company and was on the path of changing my lifestyle, the checks and monthly commission were great but I found it hard to keep my down line motivated and they were soon trickling off, faster than I could find others with the same vision as me. The checks were getting smaller.
But I refused to give up. I continued at it, and in my networking I met some great leaders who are successful and knew how to build a network marketing business. I started learning what really works and why people fail in the business or never make a profit, better yet break even.
Today, I am a network marketing professional building my business from home offline and online with the Internet.
I decided to join the ranks of those who were successful. I made a commitment to educate myself on what was out there, select something that worked for me and my family and stay focused and committed. I started to take better care of myself, change my lifestyle, and surround myself with other motivated people. I soon discovered my purpose was to inspire others to live their best lives – empowerment and self-care.
I wanted something in an industry that is fast-growing, recession proof, and that people use and want. I also wanted something that would provide an on-going residual income. You know, something that would pay me over and over for the work that I do one time!
I love online networking, I get to connect with other like minded individuals and develop more relationships.
I learned the importance of branding myself and not my business, which is completely contrary to what we are taught in direct sales. I’m thankful that I was able to be mentored by a great leader.
Today I work with people like you with the same dreams, hope, and passion.
