Real people and real stories are what make Aloette so special. Are you still trying to decide if you should take a leap of faith and try something new? We sat down to chat with Aloette Influencer, Carol Allen, for her best advice on taking the leap and making it stick.
How has your life changed since joining Aloette?
My Mom was introduced to the products when they launched in Canada in the early eighties. She loved them because they had Aloe Vera and she was already familiar with the healing properties of the gel. Growing up in Jamaica, she used to cut the leaves and apply the gel on her skin for burns and cuts. She became a consultant for a brief period and always kept products in the bathroom, so I started using them regularly. I developed a daily routine and never looked back.
I was so impressed with the products over the years and how they made my skin glow, that I wanted everyone to try them and experience them. I became a consultant in February 1998 while working my full-time job in the Technology field as a way to be able to do something fun on my weekends. The extra money definitely came in handy, but I had so much fun meeting new people and helping them achieve great skin that I’ve stayed in the business so I can continue to help others. Plus, the awesome perks like the personal discount, free products, and endless rewards such as jewelry, trips, and other cool stuff are a bonus!
I’ve met so many beautiful clients. Some have become Consultants/Affiliates/Influencers and I’ve also met consultants from other franchises throughout the years, some of whom have become lifelong friends. I’ve been on trips with many of them and experienced some amazing Conferences in the US and Canada. We’ve made so many great memories that I would never have if I wasn’t in this business. This really is the best group of “Sisters” that anyone could ask for and everyone goes out of their way to lend a helping hand when required.
What advice would you give to anyone on the fence about starting their Aloette journey?
I would tell anyone who’s thinking of joining Aloette to stop thinking about it and just do it. You’ll never know what you can do until you take the plunge and just go for it! Every day that you are not in this business, you are doing yourself a disservice. The beauty industry is booming and there are so many opportunities to grow in this field. Plus, we get first access to some of the latest beauty products!
What has helped you achieve success with Aloette?
Setting goals has definitely helped me achieve success. I still have so much to accomplish, but what’s great is that you have the flexibility to do a lot or a little. It’s your choice as to how you want to work and grow your business since it is your own business. Everyone’s goals and journey are different, so you just have to do what you feel is comfortable for you.
How do you set goals for yourself and measure your success?
When I am working towards a franchise or corporate reward, I set my goal and break it down into small chunks. I keep checking my daily progress to see what I need to do to achieve it.
What are your top three favorite Aloette products?
Right now my three favorite products are the Pollution Control Mask which I just recently started to use. I love how it makes my skin feel when I put it on. Everyone needs to use it weekly!
The Nutri-Hydrating Mist will always be one of my favorites. I spray it all over my body daily from head to toe. Since it has a high content of Aloe, vitamins A, C, E, and B5 complex, it’s great for cuts, burns, and skin irritation. It provides a nice mist of hydration throughout the day when I need a quick spritz. I always have a small bottle in my purse.
I also now love Ageless Science. It’s a game-changer and it’s doing wonders for my skin.
