For many women out there who have families, finding the right balance of being around to help take care of other members of the family and also pursue your dream job can mean a hard time finding free time to do the things you enjoy. Pam Sowder, born on March 1st, 1957 in Roanoke, Virginia, has been able to do it all. Through her success in the direct sales industry, she has been able to accomplish balancing being a mom and an entrepreneur all at once for the past 26 years.
“I have been in the direct sales industry for over 26 years. With that comes a tremendous amount of business and social experience. What makes me unique is that I realized early on that you never get it done and that’s a good thing. There’s always more to accomplish. However, I knew if I had a great day, I would have a great week. A great week would set me up for a great month and ultimately a great year. I bring joy and positive energy to all areas of my life and I love doing fun things that bring fulfillment.” exclaims Pam.
In addition to being the chief networking officer of her direct sales company, Pam has also been broadcasting podcast episodes, and recently just released her 100th episode! She will also be releasing a book soon called Rich Girl, Poor Girl. She fell in love with the direct services industry after discovering a product that she knew would bring people flocking to buy it.
“I fell in love with the industry of network marketing and discovered a product called the Ultimate Body Applicator. I knew this product would be the perfect product to bring to market through the industry of direct sales. The Podcast and the book came about as a desire to inspire and educate people from all over the world to step into the business world and become entrepreneurs and help them get over their self limiting beliefs.” Pam recounts.
In addition to finding the perfect product, she was motivated by her desire to create her own schedule. As a mom, she wanted to be able to be there for her kids and create her own schedule without having to worry about reporting to a 9 to 5 job every single day. The direct sales industry was perfect for this kind of lifestyle. In order to be successful, however, she had to overcome her biggest obstacle: herself.
“At the beginning of my career, I had a desire to be at home with my family and bring in some additional income. Like most, I wanted to be in control of my own hours and have the flexibility to spend leisure time while also building a business and brand that would bring forth the recognition that we sometimes don’t receive as a mom.
My biggest obstacle was myself. Believing that I could actually start a company from scratch, building a podcast and writing my first book. We all possess self limiting thoughts and beliefs. Fear and the lack of implementation is what holds us back and my goal is to help everyone overcome those 2 things so they can achieve their goals.” states Pam.
After overcoming this fear and taking her leap of faith into the industry, Pam has become a success story like no other. Making millions of dollars and enjoying her life are just two of the many benefits to this lifestyle. She hopes to help inspire others to take their own leaps and go for it when creating their own businesses.
“Everyone should reset and have a healthy money mindset. 90%+ of the US population has never owned their own business and I hope to inspire people to take the leap. I have a solid passion for direct sales and just want to change the way people think about the industry. There’s so much value and opportunity for everyone at such a low investment with a potential high level of return. In today’s world, this is such a great opportunity to work from home and create the lifestyle that you’ve always dreamed of.” remarks Pam.
