Brett and Samantha were exhausted. After opening a CrossFit gym in their local community on the Gold Coast in Queensland, the couple found themselves working around the clock instead of leading their business.
“We took out every credit card known to man to set up the gym,” shares Samantha. “We invested all this money into it. In fact, Brett and I were working more than we would in a ‘normal’ job.”
Even then, the couple found themselves under water – while supporting five children at the same time. “It was a nightmare,” recalls Samantha. “We would have paid all the bills and paid off a portion of debt and we’d always end up $200 behind – less than what we needed to survive.”
“With 10 years of working for a boss and doing everything we were told at school about how to be successful – it wasn’t happening,” adds Brett. “So, of course we were disheartened.”
In October 2013, the couple was introduced to Isagenix. During this time, Samantha was also five months pregnant. “Even though I was pregnant, it didn’t stop me from sharing what Isagenix could do for others. I realised that Isagenix wasn’t about me; it was about what I could do for other people,” says Samantha.
Early on with Isagenix, the determined couple reached Crystal Executive. And even better? They reached an average annual income of over $500,000 with their Isagenix business.* Samantha wanted to show others that if she could raise five children, be pregnant in the middle of their Isagenix journey and manage a gym, that anyone could do it.
“With Isagenix, people have this idea that they’re going to become millionaires within weeks,” emphasises Samantha. “The truth is that Brett and I have a strong work ethic and that’s what has made us successful. Even though we built our Isagenix business in a short time, we knew it would take us months to actually understand the system.”
Now Isagenix Millionaires, the couple agree that building an Isagenix business was about planning around time commitments. “I know that 99.9 percent of folks have jobs and other commitments,” says Brett. “They have a family. The important part is simply to plan. Just make a goal and say, ‘I can only commit to 10 to 15 hours per week.’ Then that’s exactly where you need to start.”
That’s how Samantha and Brett began building their Isagenix business. Samantha even won the coveted 2014 Women of Isagenix award by applying her willpower to the profession. Now, the couple is living the life they’ve always wanted. “We can’t imagine our life without Isagenix,” says Brett and Samantha. “We’re fuelled with the right energy and living the life we’ve always dreamed of for our children!”
Brett and Samantha are Isagenix Millionaires No. 12 for Australia and New Zealand and No. 151 globally!
