Over the years, people have often asked me what my skincare secret was and to be honest, I basically used a bar of soap and whatever moisturizer was around for over 30 years. As I was approaching my 40's, I was seeing my skin change (definitely not in a good way) and made a decision to be more mindful of taking care of my skin. Getting facials were becoming costly, and it was no longer realistic for me to maintain. I needed something more affordable, and I also wanted to make sure I wasn't smothering my body with a bunch of toxins.
My mom introduced me to GCOOP products and I was highly skeptical for a number of reasons
1. Another network marketing company
2. New to the US market
3. Pressure to buy, pressure to sign up, and pressure to sell
Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised to find that all their products were chemical free and all natural ingredients. I was also surprised to discover that it's a B-corp certified company, which is highly coveted and respected (I personally went through an assessment to see if As We Dwell could qualify for B-Corp certification, and we are no where near getting an approval at this current state...So I am thoroughly impressed GCOOP received the certification). Yes, it is a network marketing company, but I'm actually learning that network marketing is a proven model that works. It's too bad that the concept leaves such a bad taste in people's mouth. My hope is to somehow share the benefits of coming alongside healthy network marketing companies, which I believe GCOOP has proven to be.
When I purchased household and facials products, I often found myself going to Target or Trader Joe's. As I did the math, I realized that if I purchased from GCOOP I would be spending about the same amount because their pricing is reasonable. How are they able to make it cost effective and yet not compromise the quality? Well, they were able to make it affordable and accessible because they have their own lab called General Bio Lab to formulate and manufacture directly, cutting out the middle person. Then they pass the products over to their network marketing arm, allowing people to open up their own business. I then realized, I would much rather make the purchase through GCOOP because the money is going to help grow my mom's business vs. a large conglomerate. If my purchase is financially benefiting my circle of friends and family, "why wouldn't I choose GCOOP?" is what I thought to myself. So I did, and wow the results have been quite incredible. I haven't been sleeping well lately because I have a million things running through my mind, but each morning I still wake up looking refreshed. I should look like a train wreck, but I actually don't. My skin is glowing and I don't have bags under my eyes! GCOOP is the only explanation because that's the only thing I'm doing different.
Although I'm not interested in growing my GCOOP business as much as my mom, I am all about sharing something that is life changing! This is a common story I've heard about network marketing, "They prey on housewives and people who are vulnerable." Although there are network marketing companies that may do that, I do believe not all the apples are bad in the bunch. My mother has always been a fierce business woman who has done everything from owning a jewelry shop, to owning a travel agency, to being a real estate agent and more. However, in order to stay relevant in our current culture, you have to jump through hoops and work your butt off! It's just not sustainable for people like my mom to cater to the needs of our world to grow her businesses. GCOOP has done the hard work of creating cosmeceutical grade products that are not harmful and made it accessible to people like my mom by developing an affordable pricing structure. When joining a company like GCOOP, you are your own business owner, but the wonderful thing about joining a network marketing company is that you don't have to build from the ground up. You get to take what is already created and make it your own.
So with that said, I would love to invite you to a facial night so you can feel pampered for a night and try out GCOOP products. You don't need to buy anything, and I promise there will be no pitch to get you to come onboard. I just simply want you to feel refreshed and try something I found to be amazing. And if you happen to love it as well, just simply share it with your circle of friends and family. If you want to learn more about creating a business out of it, we can setup a time for a one-on-one session.
If you can make it to one of these free facial nights, simply send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know which night you would like to attend. I could even do a private facial party for you and your friends if you can't make it to the upcoming events. I'll bring everything and all you need to bring is yourself.
