I am Rena Smith, and this is my LIMU Experience.
Three-and-a-half years ago, I was an introvert; insecure and full of self-doubt and selfishness. I had few friends. Seriously, guys, I was a wallflower. But I didn’t start out that way. When I was in school, I was bubbly and happy, but in my 20s I went through a life event. During that time, I was in a negative and dysfunctional environment that sapped me of every ounce of self-esteem I had.
I graduated with an honors degree in education, but I ended up painting houses for over 20 years because I was never hired to teach. Painting helped make ends meet but it didn’t help me with people skills since I didn’t have to speak to many people. I would never start a conversation, and when I did speak, I pointed out everybody’s flaws and always had to be right. No wonder nobody wanted to hang around with me! It’s just embarrassing when I think back on the way I used to be.
After all those years of painting, my shoulder felt like it was about to fall off and my husband and I still had to support our kid through college. We didn’t know how we were going to manage financially. So when someone I cared about asked me to join LIMU with her, I wanted to say yes. Not only did I see some hope to build another income, but finally someone was asking me to do something together! I felt I’d better say “Yes’” while I had the opportunity!
I hit the rank of 2K the first month when some family joined me, but I thought the magic was in the details. I told people all about Fucoidan and how the Tongans dive down into the bottom of the sea to cut the sea plant, how Gary had to sleep in the backseat of his dad’s car, and how you could get a BMW, but it couldn’t be more than five years old … and on and on. No wonder people were blocking my calls.
At that point, I could have told myself that LIMU just didn’t work and quit. But I knew LIMU did work because I had so many friends making money with LIMU and driving paid-for BMWs. I knew it was me and my awkward self. And besides I’m no quitter, at least not anymore.
I focused on self-development and I stayed plugged in. I filled my head with Les Brown and Jim Rohn, and kept speaking to people and learning and improving. Even at 2K, I saw LIMU deposits every month in my bank account. I also lost 20 pounds, as I became happier and more confidant. I began to believe in myself and even started making friends. I focused on others and how I could help them as more people joined my team. At the end of October 2016 I was still 2K. Then by November 18, I hit the next rank of 10K. Shortly after, I hit 20K and was BMW qualified!
LIMU is such a blessing for us. I’ve made so many friends, I found ME again, my health is the best it’s ever been, and made extra income just in time for Christmas!
It was all such a humbling and exciting experience. My team rallied around me to reach our goal. I doubt this would’ve ever happened in the corporate world. No one works overtime to help someone else get a promotion anywhere other than LIMU! Now that I’ve reached my first goal of 20K, I’m setting new goals to help each person on my team reach 20K as well.
I think it will be great when there are so many black BMWs in our small town that it looks like Hollywood has arrived! So my advice is to get started, stay plugged in and don’t quit. Everything you go through is necessary to make you who you need to be to reach your goal. When you hit 20K and you’re out shopping for your BMW, it’s a great feeling! You are worth it. As Les Brown says, “You have greatness within you.” If I can do it, I know you can, too!
I am Rena Smith, and I am LIMU for life!
