We were 22 year olds with a 2-year old and bills stacking higher every day. We felt like were living on an ever tilting balance of parenthood, both of us working full time jobs. It was getting closer to the holidays, and we had hospital bills, maxed out credit cards, car payments, and student loans piled high. We felt no matter what we did we couldn’t get ahead. We were both working overtime but we felt like we were on a never-ending treadmill. We hardly saw each other and never had time with our son. It started to get to us – stressed out at home and at work – and we knew that there had to be another way.
We started the new year working harder than ever and determined to get ahead of things. While talking with my boss one day about how things were going and how I had been feeling about everything, she shared that she had joined a new company called LIMU and I was surprised to hear how much she had come to love this company so fast. She sent me home with the LIMU video and invited me to a LIMU party. I took the DVD home but put it on my TV stand and didn’t end up going to the party.
That weekend my boyfriend and I took a road trip with our son to visit family out of town. We both worked in the morning before leaving for our weekend trip, and while talking to my boss she told me she had to leave early that day, explaining that she had to meet her husband at the BMW dealership. They had qualified for the LIMU BMW club, only a month after they had joined the company!
We enjoyed our trip and came home ready to jump back into our busy schedule of working and paying bills. And as soon as I got to work, I saw a brand new black BMW with LIMU stickers parked in the parking lot. I was shocked!
The next night after work we went to learn more about LIMU, and decided to become LIMU Promoters. We felt welcomed and inspired to start this new adventure, but we never expected how much this new experience would change us. We started using the products ourselves, and shared our results with our friends. Exactly one year ago we sat here at our very first LIMU LIVE event, amazed, excited and so moved by all the stories that we heard. The story that inspired me most was Gary Raser’s, when he spoke about where he started, the struggles he faced and how he was determined to overcome them. It really hit home for me personally and reminded me of my mom and how hard she has always worked.
We left Memphis last year full of excitement, with a new outlook and determined to share LIMU with as many people as possible. Two weeks after the event – just 46 days after becoming Promoters – with amazing leadership and support, we qualified for the LIMU BMW Club!
Being a part of LIMU has given us so many amazing opportunities! We were able to pay off debts, we were inspired to live healthier, and we give back by helping others achieve their goals. But we are most excited and thankful to have been given the priceless opportunity to have more time at home with our son, to be able to grow as a family and live a better life. We can’t wait for all the LIMU adventures waiting for us this year and we are extremely excited to add a new addition to our little family in August this year.
LIMU has changed our lives. We are no longer the same working parents stressed out about life problems. We are forever grateful to have been introduced to this amazing opportunity, to slow down and enjoy the priceless things in life, and help others do the same.
We are Ashley Brewer and Juan De La Cruz, and we are LIMU!
