Just last September, LIMU changed in some pretty big ways and theyâ€™re DEFINITELY driving our huge success, especially with our young Members, LIMUâ€™s Next Generation. From our 2K VIP program that puts your initial product purchase payment back in your pocket in 2 weeks, to the Customer Acquisition 3 For Free plan that lets you get your AutoShip product absolutely free every single month, and to our total focus on LIMU EXPERIENCE parties instead of meetings â€¦ all of those have created what is now the most attractive long-term opportunity in the industry. And our BMW Ultimate Auto Program? Well, thatâ€™s jump-started so many of these young businesses, itâ€™s amazing!
There are lots of great stories in LIMUâ€™s Next Generation but not very many actually go back years and years. Thatâ€™s years as in how long Iâ€™ve known this new 500K, and her story just goes to show thereâ€™s power in being teachable, in learning to be bad before youâ€™re good â€¦ so you can be good to get to great. This is the story of one of our best and brightest, a LIMU EXPERIENCE Party girl like no one else I know â€¦ Salien Liles
Itâ€™s been 15 years that Iâ€™ve known Salien, the youngest in a long line of beautiful ladies brought into this world by Mister Tommy and Miss Linda Liles, great LIMU Promoters in their own right. In fact, she was just 14 years old when I first met her, RachettĂ©â€™s little sister and every bit the sweet Southern gal she is to this day. Friendly as all get out and a Louisiana accent that made her words sound like a song. Laughing bright eyes and helpful to everyone at our meetings, she was the queen of the registration table â€¦ always there without fail, happy as she could be seeing all of her LIMU friends, and guests as well.
Well, she loved that job. Loved it so much she kept it for like 8 years. Rain or shine, no matter when or where the meeting was, she made it a point to be there. Always at the registration table, but never involved in the meetings. Lord knows she could talk up a storm even then, but it was safe behind that table. She was 22 years old and she could see how good LIMU was to RachettĂ© and brother-in-law Shannon, LIMUâ€™s top income earners. But you know, old habits die hard and so it was easy to watch from the table, from the sideline.
She worked in the medical field and loved her job. With her personality, she was good at it too. And healthcare is a field thatâ€™s booming, perfect for a young person starting out. Good money, enough money to fulfill one of her passions, which was shopping. Still something she loves. But that shopping created a problem lots of people fall into: credit card debt, and plenty of it. As she tells it, that $15,000 of credit card debt was something she worried about. Made her stand up and take a little notice.
So right about 4 years ago, she started working the LIMU business. After all, she had Shannon and RachettĂ© as great role models, right? Yes, that surely helped. But this business is about your OWN drive and passion, your OWN work ethic. And itâ€™s about being teachable too, though she probably thought she knew plenty after living with them, and being at that registration table for so long. Long story short, she worked the business in her own way, at her own pace, for about 2 years. Totally unteachable. She had only moderate success, not really too surprising. Remember it really is about being bad before you get good â€¦ itâ€™s something every one of us goes through.
So just 2 years in, Salien tells Shannon that itâ€™s not working and she wants to quit. Honest truth, hereâ€™s what he says: â€śHow can you quit when you havenâ€™t even started yet? You havenâ€™t really worked the business â€¦ youâ€™ve just been playing at it.â€ť The fact is she hadnâ€™t yet become teachable, so he convinced her to give the business a serious try, in the right way, with his help.
Even with help though, it was still pretty slow going. She got better at telling her story. She had just a little more success, but she was attracting some other strong people to her team. People like Quarvay and Shandra Winbush, Erica and Tyler Phillips, young people looking for a better life, just like her. Still, it was fairly slow going; she was a 50K but only being paid as a 20K in February 2011. And then she went to the LIMU International Convention in March 2011, where we introduced the Ultimate Auto Program â€¦ she took off and her business took off!
Sheâ€™d seen success for others but now she really saw it was all there for HER. That new program was the trigger and when she qualified for that BMW, she definitely got more excited about building her business. After all, to have a car that hot at such a young age â€¦ that screams success, and she had to have it. Wanted it bad. And she got it, a lot more success, being paid as a 50K by April and just 120 days later, qualified as a 100K in August.
But her success didnâ€™t stop there. When we introduced all of our changes in September and focused on LIMU EXPERIENCE parties, that was like sending a kid into a candy store â€¦ Salien got REALLY excited, cuz she knows how to party! In fact, she does 5 to 7 parties a day, 7 days a week â€¦ and the odometer on her BMW shows it: 85,000+ miles in less than a year!
Right then, in September, Salienâ€™s business started to truly explode when we started awarding hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, prizes and trips every quarter for great LIMU EXPERIENCE stories. With growing momentum and a solid six-figure income, by January of this year, she had hit 200K â€¦ and here she is, just 120 days later and now only the 4th 500K in LIMUâ€™s history, the very first single female to do it. And she is just 29 years old! Think about that: a young woman from Louisiana, already seeing that huge level of success â€¦ what an unbelievable ride!
Now think about this: Why is LIMUâ€™s Next Generation building so much and so quickly? Because young people like Salien know how to have fun parties. And young people can appreciate all the great incentives available, especially being able to get them way earlier than their peers. LIMUâ€™s Next Generation is in a big hurry to succeed! They run faster â€¦ theyâ€™re used to a quicker pace â€¦ theyâ€™re willing to work harder than anyone thinks they can. They have the very opposite of an entitlement attitude. They are hard workers, never say no workers, destined to succeed workers. My kind of people! And the key to success at LIMU.
Salien is devoted to her team; in fact, she already has over 50 BMW qualified Promoters in her organization. Every time I call or text Salien, sheâ€™s doing yet another LIMU EXPERIENCE party. So itâ€™s no wonder her success has been huge and quick â€¦ from 20K to 500K in less than a year, with bonus after bonus after bonus â€¦ $130,000 in all. And thatâ€™s on TOP of all the commissions sheâ€™s earned every single month, AND all of the incentive trips sheâ€™s earned to places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, St. Martin and even Tahiti, Australia and France.â€¦ FREE trips for each one of those levels sheâ€™s reached, 50K and 100K and 200K and 500K!
Thatâ€™s a whole lot of income, a whole lot of trips. And a whole lot of shopping, with NO credit card debt. Talk about a total life change! And it couldnâ€™t have happened to a nicer person â€¦ that young gal behind the registration table is now our newest 500K, having the time of her life and enjoying more fun than ever.
You go girl! Party on!
