This is a common question that I get when being asked about our events. You don't have to be anything other than a lady! We love meeting other ladies from our area and really enjoy the opportunity to get out for the sake of socializing outside of the activities we do on a regular basis. We encourage you to let your hair down and take an hour or two to enjoy some girl time.
We make friends, we invite friends, we become friends. I have to say that I have, in the short four months of hosting these events, have met some of the most incredible women around. I've learned, I've shared, I've carried and been carried. When you think of those women that adjust your crown and keep moving without saying a word, this is a group full of them. They are amazing and we always invite other amazing women to join us! We will be at Barley Naked Brewery 4/30/19 from 6:30 - 9. Grab a ticket at https://www.facebook.com/events/624594167963279/ and come on out.
I'd like to introduce you ladies to an extraordinary woman. She's a mom, an ER nurse, a friend to those around her and a very determined lady! Meet Jenni Shirk, with It Works!
I finished school and became a nurse while raising my daughter, then managed to complete my bachelors degree while raising my son, and helping my daughter complete her schooling!
I started with It Works as a customer, and use the products regularly. My coworker assisted me with becoming a distributor. I work a full-time job and I'm a mom to two. I believe in the products I take, and therefore would like to share with the results with others. I have more energy, and feel better overall. My complexion has also improved.
She describes herself as friendly, honest and hard-working.
I enjoy nursing and plan on continuing in the field, while continuing to try to help others accomplish what they desire. I am happy in my current career, and would like to continue where I am, while growing my independent sales for It Works. I am lucky enough to work for a company that allows me to set my own schedule. Working for It Works allows me to share their products in my spare time. My goal is to be financially stable prior to retirement. To have both of my children set up with goals for them to accomplish.
In her spare time Jenni says:
I love to walk my dog around the scenic trails, enjoy family time at the local parks, and enjoy get togethers at the local brewery.
Advice she has for others considering going into business:
Make sure you believe in what you are doing. Try the merchandise for yourself, and go for it. There will never be the perfect time to start something new, create that time. Believe in yourself.
