Jessica Lanz is an EVER Independent Specialist on her way to reaching Star level, with her two kids in tow. She is a stay-at-home mother who took a chance with the encouragement of her mentor by signing up with EVER. With a love for the product and the flexibility in opportunity, she dipped her toes in slowly, and was pleasantly surprised by the result. Here’s what she had to say when we caught up with her.
What inspired you to become an EVER Independent Specialist?
I've always been a product junkie and into good skincare. I tried EVER and it was love at first wash. I wasn't necessarily looking for the business opportunity. My mentor, Alicia, worked hard to convince me to join because I was extremely hesitant in the beginning. I’m a real introvert, and the idea of selling to other people was scary. But she told me that I should get out of my comfort zone, just to prove to myself that I could do it.
As a stay at home mom to two kids, finding time for myself is not easy, but it I realized that it could be fun to have something to call my own. And, I liked that this could be flexible based on how much time and effort I wanted to put in.
What's your next big goal and how are you going to achieve it?
My next goal is to promote to Star Specialist! I'm going to achieve it by talking to two people every day about EVER, and continuing to plant the seeds. In the beginning, it’s scary to hear no, but sometimes, a “no for now” turns into “yes” down the line, and this is something I’ve found in my experience. So, my method is to be consistent, to keep communication open and to follow up.
It’s funny because I never even considered promoting at all. Since I started for fun, I didn’t set goals, and my current rank as “Senior Specialist” seemed impossible before. But it wasn’t, and neither is Star!
What has been your experience with the EVER Transformation and what does that mean to you?
EVER has truly transformed my skin which has in turn transformed my confidence. I’ve tried every product - high-end, low-end, clinical-grade, prescription. My results with EVER have been the best, hands down. My skin is smoother, I have less visible blemishes, and marks have faded. I no longer need foundation in order to leave the house, which is so freeing. I'm also no longer wasting money hopping from one product to the next, looking for the next best thing.
I’m also much more confident about being seen without make up, which helps on the business side. I’m able to put my best face forward (literally) and feel comfortable reaching out to people and sharing without feeling awkward. Along the way, I’ve gotten support from many people around me, which feels amazing.
If you were stuck on a desert island with only one EVER product, which one would it be, and why?
Such a tough decision! I would have to say Tinted DAYLIGHT. Need that sun protection on the island! Plus it makes me look put together even if I'm not. ;)
