A Commitment to Caring
Shekayla Robinson’s commitment to helping others is a key reason she chose to get involved with Ambit. While working for the United States Postal Service, she studied Christian counseling and sociology. “I always wanted to motivate and counsel individuals because life is what you make of it. So, I loved seeing others happy,” she says. She’s also one of the many Ambit consultants who began as a customer. After her divorce, she joined a friend’s downline as a consultant.
Now, she’s able to put her interest in helping others to work by supporting, training and leading her team. “I’ve learned Ambit isn’t for everyone, but I’m going to keep driving the bus and picking individuals up,” Shekayla says.
Success and Challenges
On the surface, Shekayla seems to have had an easy time of building her Ambit business. She’s been a Top Producer, fast tracked to SC level, was named to the SC Dream Team and earned a Pure Energy Award. But appearances can be deceiving. Not only did she face the termination of a key Senior Consultant on her team, she was even homeless for a time. But she never stopped fighting.
“Yes, I cried, I was frustrated. But I didn’t give up, putting God first through faith and prayer helped me tremendously.” she says. “I told myself I was sowing seeds and to not stop putting the word out.”
Shekayla is proud of her many accomplishments, but she’s looking forward, not backward. She’s planning to step up her recruiting and training efforts, taking courses to build her own expertise, hosting business mixers and more.
Her advice to new consultants seeking to emulate her success is simple. She says the most effective tool for growing a business is telling her story. “Being transparent about your life will get them every time,” she says, “but it has to be genuine. And, of course, it always helps to have the love for helping others that Shekayla demonstrates every day.
