Welcome to Business Innovators Magazine…Please introduce yourself and a brief thumbnail sketch of your background.
CS: My name is Ciji Siddons, and I’m from NJ. I was introduced to network marketing without realizing it six years ago through a powerful product experience. At the time, I was a miserable, broke, and broken waitress and bartender from the Jersey Shore. At 28 years old, I made the decision to go to graduate school to find a career for myself that I could fall in love with. I grew up with a father who always said, “Find what you love to do and find a way to get paid for it” and while that was such a blessing, there were times it felt more like a curse because I struggled to find anything that could do that statement justice. When I enrolled in grad school, I was very aware that being a full-time student wouldn’t allow me to continue working the amount of hours waitressing and bartending that I was accustomed to and decided to take a look at the network marketing opportunity. Needless to say, it’s transformed my life in ways I could never adequately express. I finished grad school and in the same month, I left my bartending job. I knew at that moment that I’d never be sending resumes or searching CareerBuilder for a job because I found my calling in entrepreneurship. I now live the life of my dreams and do it alongside my friends, my family, and people I love the most.
