Ep. #256: Manifesting and Network Marketing
Kimberly's Future Self led her to 3 network marketing companies. The third one happened so inspired it left her thinking, "What did I just do?"
These were all inspired, and they taught, and are still teaching, her how to sift through inspiration, and how to really stay true to the Law of Attraction foundation she has built while doing what was inspired.
Network marketing companies often have a "system" you are supposed to follow to be successful. And that system is usually based more on pushing than leveraging the Law of Attraction.
After being inspired to join the third network marketing company, Kimberly had to navigate how to stay out of the push and in inspired action.
Join your host Cassie Parks as Kimberly Hite again joins her to discuss all things network marketing, the Law of Attraction, inspired action, and how all of these things played out in Kimberly's life.

27:52: Kimberly discusses that she realized that in the past, she didn't want to accept recognition, and how Mary Kay showed her that recognition could be fun, but then realized that she had to sell $1800 to earn a $21 prize.
28:40: Kimberly talks about how she realized that if she wanted the prizes, she could invest her own money in it, and the value would have been higher.
29:00: Kimberly talks about how the most incredible thing she has gotten out of this experience is confidence and that that is a step to her Future Self.
29:23: Kimberly talks about how she was confident enough to go to her director and say that she wasn't inspired to chase or push for sales and that she wants it to be organic. Therefore, she will not do what she was being taught to do and admits that owning that was new for her.

30:13: Cassie asks Kimberly what her director's response was.
30:20: Kimberly talks about how her director wants her to be successful no matter what she is doing and that she will support her in whatever way she needs. And how awesome it is to have someone who just wants to support her no matter what she does.

31:27: Cassie talks about how Kimberly felt that she was rebellious and how that story made it seem like she didn't fit in and it wasn't going to work.
31:43: Kimberly realizes that saying she is a rebel is a story that she has been telling most of her life and that she is learning even in this interview.
32:05: Because Kimberly had an ah-ha, Cassie asks her how realizing that she could be her and be supported will change her story moving forward.
32:32: Kimberly says she doesn't know, but she has tingles and that it is magical.
32:45: Cassie talks about how it will be different, that the shift is something she can feel, that that is how stories shift, and the tingle is Kimberly letting go of the old and stepping into the new.
33:19: Kimberly says she is still tingling and has tears in her eyes because she has wanted to belong all of her life and that now she knows she can belong and be herself.
33:55: Kimberly owns that she belongs and is 100% authentically herself and that that is something that she scripts.
34:38: Cassie asks Kimberly what advice she would give someone that is drawn to joining an MLM and want to do it LOA style.
34:57: Kimberly talks about how she tells everyone they need to join the Enchanted Circle and that they should only join an MLM if they are inspired to.
36:18: Kimberly also advises to meet the other people involved in the MLM.
36:26: Cassie discusses that you get to choose.
36:32: Kimberly agrees that you have a choice, and if you join out of inspiration, you are allowed to stop when it is no longer inspired and do something different.
36:57: Cassie asks Kimberly how people can connect with her.
