Meet Vanessa Harris
Hey there! I hope you are doing great, if not, check me out on social media for uplifting and fun posts! I’ll be posting a blog post from time to time on anything and everything I love! I love personal development (um, yeah, it’s a major addiction), I love my family, God, beauty tricks, oil painting, health tips, and I’m learning a ton of super amazing information on online marketing strategies. If you follow me on Periscope you’ll get the latest on that usually. I also love to talk about how busy moms can turn their excuses into reasons, as I have had to navigate through the business world as a mom of three boys. It’s not always easy! I’m pretty transparent, so if you want real, you’re in the right place. I also know that God has my back, so I’m real with good dose of grace.
I’m an artist and draftsperson by trade, turned serial entrepreneur. I have ZERO formal business education. All my knowledge is learned at the school of hard knocks and stupid tax. Mistakes have taught me well, so I love to help people not make the same mistakes. In 2002, I was running my own drafting business out of my home when my husband and I started a lawn and landscaping company, then we bought a traditional brick and mortar business. I soon started investing in commercial real estate for the residual income. I quickly realized that small traditional business was very hard and required a ton of time, personal man hours, overhead, risk, etc. Ugh! I felt like I was sinking under all the pressure of business plus being a full-time mom. In 2009, my husband joined a network marketing company. It was probably the 5th or 6th one he had joined and honestly, I thought all network marketing companies were scams after his many failed attempts in the industry. To my surprise, Jason had picked a good one and I saw the light! Money started rolling in and I had a lightbulb moment where I realized instantly all that network marketing could offer without all the headache and expenses and risk of other business models.
Even though I saw the light, I was far from understanding how to run a successful networking marketing business. I have spent thousands of dollars and countless hours skilling up and working on myself and working in the field. And believe me, I had and still have a lot to work on. I’ve come a long way and I know I can share my past and future experiences with others. Parts of my childhood were pretty tough, but I learned the will to survive and overcome. I have a heart for women and children. I love empowering women who want to grow their themselves and their businesses. For me, doing business right means serving others in a heart to heart manner, just like a family. I want to see people overcome! Overcoming obstacles, fear, self-doubt, rejection, and resistance is my forte!
I know what it’s like to feel unworthy and wonder if you’re cut out for business and a life beyond mediocrity. Can living your God-given dreams be a reality? YES! I believe with a little bit of inspiration, faith, determination, persistence, and a whole lotta love and prayer, anyone can achieve anything they decide to achieve. I’m here to show you that if I can do it, you can do it. I want to help people go from victims to victors! From being ran over to running their own businesses!
The best part is Jason and I have three beautiful children and we are imparting on them everything we learn along the journey. We have a heart to feed children and we love to travel as a family and make a difference in other’s lives and in the world. We have successfully been in business together for over 13 years and are still married! Being in business as a couple can be challenging at times, but also a tremendous blessing. Jason is literally the wind beneath my wings! He’s the best coach and mentor in the world–he helps get the crud out of my head like no one else. Now, together we coach other people to reach their full potential. We love our team and customers like they are family.
