We are Leigh and Karen Davis, and this is our LIMU Experience.
My husband was a rock star in Amway when I met him almost 30 years ago. He was this hyper little guy who used to stalk my sister and me at church. One day he got bold enough to introduce himself, overexcited and nervous and talking a hundred miles an hour about his “opportunity.” Finally, my sister stopped him and said, “Well, my husband might be interested. Here’s his number.” Then he looked at me and said, “What about your husband?” When I told him I wasn’t married, with a huge grin he said, “Well, can I have your phone number anyway?”
Not only did I give him my phone number, my sister and another sister’s husband did indeed join him in his business venture and many others throughout the years. They did well, and we all lived happily ever after. Or did we? Now, I dearly love my husband, but I’m embarrassed to say that I never really supported him in his MLMs. Yes, that’s all I thought they were, just multi-level marketing pyramids. Just another hobby, one more “meeting” he’s running off to, one more person he’s gonna bore to death showing that dang “plan.” Just more lines and circles he’s drawing late at night in bed as he’s mumbling to himself about who’s he’s gonna “sign up” tomorrow. I didn’t support my husband. I was holding him back. I should have been his biggest fan and support system. I wasn’t. I was wrong.
So, this story – my story – isn’t the average “I’m now making $9 million dollars a month and I’ve lost 5,000 pounds” or “I quit my horrible 9-5 job.” My story is really pretty simple. When LIMU was introduced to my hubby and he was once again “fired up,” I just thought, “here we go again.” Then he wanted to have a “party” at our house. Then he wanted me to go to other people’s houses for parties. Then he wanted me to come to these events. Then he wanted me to become part of the team. My husband didn’t need my permission — he needed my support to truly succeed. It hit me. I understood, finally. Sooo… Yes! I now attend and host parties with him! Yes! I go to LIMU events with him! Yes! I signed up and work alongside my husband.
And, you know what I saw at these parties and conventions and events? I saw teams of partners and spouses. Teams of very cool and successful people who were rocking this biz because their partner – their biggest support system – had come alongside to do LIMU TOGETHER! How can this work without your partner? Probably not very well.
LIMU is a family. It’s a family business.
So, if indeed this story is being read aloud right now, just hear this: If you’re doing this business, do it with your partner, don’t let your partner attend one more function, party or convention solo. Get up and support them. Encourage them. I love my husband and he has no idea that I’m submitting this story, and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to grab his hand when our names are called and run up on that stage and show him that he’s still a rock star, and I’m still his cheerleader, and I will always support him.
