Top Industry Leader Michelle Barnes Joins Modere
It might sound like Michelle Barnes joining Modere and hitting Elite 3 in her first month is an overnight success, but it’s not, there’s a story behind the story.
A story of consistency and an incredible work ethic that started 20 years ago, when Michelle Barnes was in the middle of law school and realized she didn’t want to be an attorney. She quit law school with $80,000 of debt and was waiting tables making more money than she could with her undergraduate degree when she was first introduced to network marketing.
“I was the most skeptical person on the planet, but I fell in love with helping people’s health, helping people’s financial situations, and most importantly, I fell in love with helping people to learn to think a different way and create more of an entrepreneurial mindset,” said Michelle Barnes.
Today Michelle is a single mom with two boys, runs a successful business, makes an amazing income and still has time to volunteer in her sons’ classrooms.
“We’re so thrilled that Michelle has chosen to make Modere her home,” said Justin Serra, Modere General Manager.
“Her leadership skills and experience are a welcome addition to the Modere team. In just her first month, she’s already seeing the power of social retail and the incredible opportunity for her team.”
Michelle found Modere at a time when things in her business were going through a rough patch.
“I think our industry is pretty volatile right now,” says Michelle Barnes. “If you want to be successful, you have to create a new model that makes the old model obsolete. I think it’s easy for people to want to do what’s comfortable, but I think we have to do things differently. That’s what attracted me to Modere. The model of social retail is totally disruptive!”
For Michelle, the Modere social retail model is doing things differently by focusing on growth through customers. Modere’s effective products are consumable and create a true customer base by providing essentials that people want to buy, even without an income opportunity.
“I’ve built both uni-levels & a binary. Modere is a hybrid of the best of uni-level and binary compensation plans,” says Michelle. “I ran the volume from the last month at my last company through the Modere compensation plan and I would have made double what I did if I would have done that at Modere.
The beautiful thing is, everyone has a home at Modere, whether you’re comfortable recruiting or you’re comfortable sharing products, you can be successful. Both are recognized & rewarded.”
Helping her team is one of her biggest motivators and Michelle is quick to credit her them for her achievements.
“My team inspires me to work hard every single day,” she says. “I’m grateful for all of the business partnerships that have come together at Modere. I want everyone to be able to experience time and money freedom. I have huge goals for myself and my team and with the positioning and timing of where Modere is, I know we can reach them.”
