Kathy Eickelberg is the focus of our Specialist Spotlight this week. She is the mother of four (now full grown) children, and spent many years supporting the people around her. At the spring age of 57, she has made the decision to do something for herself, and for Kathy, that was becoming an EVER Independent Specialist. She hasn’t looked back since! Here’s what she had to say when we caught up with her.
What inspired you to become an EVER Independent Specialist?
My friend and mentor Stephanie Holguin inspired me and challenged me to become an EVER Specialist. I had known her for a number of years, and she introduced me to EVER. I fell in love with the products and the results I saw on my skin, and used the products for about a year before Stephanie approached me about becoming a Specialist. I listed all the reasons why I shouldn’t join - that I would fail, I wouldn’t be any good, I’d be awkward and uncomfortable. But the more I thought about it, the more I felt like this was the right time. I spent many years as a stay-at-home mom being the support person for my husband and four children. Finally I decided this was my time to take on a challenge for myself.
Even though I felt hesitant in the beginning, I realized I had so much support from the EVER community, and especially from Stephanie. My family is also very excited for me, and they understand why I do it. Even my daughter is a Specialist!
What’s your next big goal and how are you going to achieve it?
I am currently a Founding Star Specialist, and I'd like to become Associate Director level by expanding not only my own team but helping the women on my team build their teams as well. I go back to my mentor, Stephanie, who is an outstanding example of a great team leader. Like her, I’d like to inspire my own team, and give them the tools they need to reach out and expand their businesses.
What has been your experience with the EVER Transformation and what does that mean to you?
Product-wise, I think the products are excellent, they do deliver amazing results. I’ve seen a significant reduction in my visible fine lines, my complexion has evened out, and my skin just feels lush and emollient. I’ve noticed that not a lot of things quite work as you get older, yet EVER has given me great results, which is the most impressive part.
It’s also been such fun earning money through selling EVER as a Specialist. What started as ‘fun’ money can turn into serious income when you put the work into it. I’ve seen that it also offers a lot of flexibility to work around their family and their lives. I spend only 10 to 12 hours, mostly in the evenings, and it’s easy for me to share the opportunity and products to people I talk to during the day time. It doesn’t feel like work to me.
If you were stuck on a desert island with only one EVER product, which one would it be, and why?
Sounds like I'd need DAYLIGHT Tinted Radiance Moisturizer SPF 32 - Medium to Tan - so my face wouldn't get burned! I love the sun protection, how it goes on but doesn’t feel like sunscreen, and you don’t look like you’re wearing a foundation when it’s on.
