Peta Kelly - Creating a Life of Abundance by Leading with Your Why [Podcast 101]
Release Date: 03/09/2016
Three years ago, Peta Kelly realized some things would need to change in order for her to follow her true path. As she stood at a crossroads, she decided to go in the direction that was a little less certain and comfortable - all because of what she believed could happen. Peta began a journey of self-discovery, which would lead to her all-important “why”. Inspired by the sacrifices her mother made in raising Peta and her siblings, Peta knew she had to work towards allowing her mother to retire. With her why at the forefront, Peta went full steam ahead into the world of network marketing.
From struggling PhD student to hugely successful network marketer.
At the young age of 25, Peta has seen her income increase exponentially in a very short time. She credits her ability to maintain focus on her why as the fuel that drove her to keep pushing forward. Before delving into network marketing, Peta was a PhD student on scholarship, earning $500 a week. She worked side jobs as a trainer to make ends meet. Peta explains that she was happy then, but she knew something was missing. Her goal was to make a difference in the world and to find her true path. So she pressed ahead and worked on identifying what life could be like if she took some chances.
Following a path of uncertainty, fueled by the possibilities.
As Peta stepped into the world of network marketing, she didn’t have any preconceived notions, expectations, or ideas about the business. She was a virtual blank slate - a sponge willing to soak up all of the knowledge and systems that make network marketing great. She went from a PhD student with a fairly certain path ahead of her, to a network marketer with no idea how it would all work out. What Peta did have was a willingness to work hard and invest in herself. She shares the value of going into the business with eyes and heart wide open - ready to learn.
The value of working on yourself.
The most important part of the journey, Peta says, has been the investment in herself. She believes that success in network marketing isn’t about the product or the compensation plan, but about the person behind it. If you take the time to work on yourself, the sky is the limit. Peta also discusses why it’s important to stop being attached to the “why” and the “how” - and you you need to live and breathe your “why”. She also delves into her approach with developing leaders and why this is essential to her success. Peta offers insight into her approach of leading with a vision using network marketing as a vehicle.
Creating a life of abundance and freedom at any age.
Peta works with people who are ready to be leaders and transform their lives. She explains that a large percentage of people are 26 or younger, because Peta proved success is possible at any age. Her mission is to help young people understand that they can strive for complete and utter inner and outer freedom - at any age. In closing, Peta offers some advice to people who feel stuck in the world of network marketing. There’s no doubt that Peta’s story is inspiring, motivating, and downright magical.
