Girl Boss: Behind the Scenes of Plexus
This Girl Boss series has been a blast. I have loved learning more about the different companies and getting to know these women more. This week, I caught up with Ally Jones, a Plexus Ambassador. Check out our interview to get a glimpse of this company and what she does.
It’s Carli Darlin (ICD): What is the name of the business you are in?
(Ally Jones): Plexus Worldwide
ICD: What is your business about? The focus?
AJ: Natural health and wellness. We’re the health and happiness company!
ICD: How long have you been doing your business?
AJ: I’ve been with Plexus for a year and a half, working the business part-time as a college student. I’m excited to graduate this summer with more time to dedicate and go full-throttle! This opportunity is my career choice, and I’m blessed to have found my passion so young!
ICD: What is your title?
AJ: I am a Gold Ambassador with Plexus!
ICD: With so many MLM companies out there today, what made you decide to join the one you are in?
AJ: I decided to join this company because I can get behind the products and executives. I’m really big on only associating with companies that are morally sound, and I found that here. The products are awesome, so sharing them was easy, and they’re products that drastically change people’s quality of life. I love health, but I couldn’t just choose a company based around weight-loss. I love that this company values overall health, and the ingredients are incredible (I’m very proud of our labels). And lastly, the compensation plan is made FOR us, versus just for the executives. They want us to succeed in the business, and that’s evident in the way they set up our compensation plan. So many reasons!
ICD: Are there leadership opportunities in your company?
AJ: Yes, we’re each leaders of our own team of amazing people, and we also have a panel of ambassadors that help make decisions for the company.
ICD: What is the income potential with your company at your level? At levels above you?
AJ: The income potential at my level, and really any level is substantial. My income pays my bills without me having to work another job, which is incredible. Ambassadors have 11 ways to get paid. Any level ambassador can make a substantial income based on commission and bonuses. We are also paid based on the team-building aspect of our business. Average monthly incomes:
Senior Gold: $1938
Senior Ruby: $4303
(Plexus also has a unique perk of allowing Diamond ambassadors to re-enter as a new position on themselves. Our highest position is double-diamond, making the average monthly income of that position twice as much as the diamond income shown. Plexus is the only company to offer that, and it’s pretty neat. I will definitely be taking advantage!)
ICD: What are three things you would say it takes to be successful at your business?
AJ: To be successful with this business, it takes transparency/being genuine with your friends and family, stepping out of your comfort zone, and resolving to not quit. That’s it. Anyone can do it, I’ve seen it happen for homeless women, college students, and 90-year olds.
ICD: If you were talking to a brand new person in your business, what would you think they would need to know just starting?
AJ: For our newbies just starting out, the most important thing they need to know is to invite people on this journey with them. We don’t sell to people, we share. It’s important for all new ambassadors to know that their friends and family want to know about THEM personally, and their health journey is a part of that. Sharing your experience is a really natural process, and it doesn’t need to be complicated!
ICD: What is your least favorite part of this business?
AJ: My least favorite part of this business is how far away my closest friends are now! The friendships I’ve made all over the world are incredible, I just wish I could see those people everyday! Next time I’ll see some of my best friends is in May this year!
ICD: How much does it cost to get started as a business owner in your company?
AJ: It only costs $34.95 to get started with Plexus, and it’s all online. We don’t do inventory, shipping, or parties AT ALL. I love that it’s so easy for my friends to do it with me, just by sharing their website.
ICD: Are there monthly or yearly volume minimums to stay active?
AJ: We don’t have monthly required monthly volumes, in fact, lots of our ambassadors join just to get wholesale (the cheapest) prices. Yearly, it’s just $34.95 to lock in wholesale pricing.
ICD: What is your business website I can share with my followers?
Thanks so much, Ally. It was so great to find out more about Plexus and get to know you better. You are rocking this business.
