OUR PERSONAL SUCCESS STORY
In my past life, before children, I was a total science nerd. I worked for Columbia University studying corals and climate change. After a few years of being in the lab by myself, I realized I was much too social to be analyzing water samples. I started talking to anyone that would listen about our research, which led to a career in outreach. At the time, my husband Josh had a very successful banking career, but he was miserable. We had many conversations about selling our big house and living a better life.
In 2009, a friend told me about a unique opportunity to sell exceptional skincare products in the burgeoning “social commerce” industry. I could work with people but set my own schedule around my family priorities… and potentially make some money at it! When I heard I could start my own company with the support of a major established brand, I was all ears and jumped at the opportunity. Admittedly, I had very low expectations at first, but after a few months my business was booming! I set my goals to help Josh walk away from banking for good… to live the life we dreamed about. We thought it would take many years, but in just 21 months my team had grown significantly, and I was able to fully replace his income so he could quit his job. We’ve never looked back.
Josh has now joined me in coaching our reps to success, and we run The Cormany Community together. Today, we are among the company’s top earners, which certainly comes with some amazing financial perks – we have enjoyed many luxury trips at Four Seasons Resorts in Florence, Bora Bora, Paris, Thailand, Australia and London. In 2018, we’ll be adding Cannes, France to the list! But, for us, what we’ve been able to give back to others has been equally rewarding. Not only have we been able to shift our focus to mentoring other entrepreneurs as they build their businesses, we’re helping at-risk youth change their lives through empowerment programs within our company’s foundation, and are able to get more involved with charities close to our hearts.
We are a husband and wife business coaching team focused on recruiting and training independent business owners to work in the multi-billion-dollar anti-aging skincare industry as we expand across the globe. We’re able to leverage the work of a well-established brand for our own micro-enterprise and teach other entrepreneurs to do the same. We are steering this ship from our home office in beautiful Paradise Valley, Arizona in the winter, and summers at the lake – and always around our kids’ busy schedules.
