The lifeblood of JAFRA Cosmetics are its thousands of “Consultants” who have sought and acquired well-earned independence and success through the sales of state-of-the-art beauty products. One such Consultant, Lori Duncan who is a nine year JAFRA veteran shares with us what inspires her to keep reaching for the stars.
Tell us about your journey to JAFRA. Why did you become a consultant?
JAFRA has been a part of my life since I was nine years old – my mom joined JAFRA in 2004. I was attending all of the company events, meetings, trips etc. It was my senior year of high school and I was taking a Business Entrepreneur class that required me to have a job in order to get credit, so my mom signed me up in JAFRA, placed a qualified order, and once it all came she used a majority of the product herself, and whatever was left, she packed up and put in the closet! At that time I had no interest in it. But then I graduated high school during the summer and my dad thought it was time that I get a job. I knew that working at Jack in the Box wasn’t in the cards for me, even though my friends were working there, so I told my mom to get the products out. I used them and fell in love!! I decided then that I would share it with friends and family, and would use it to earn extra money until I attended college that fall. I had friends host parties and in my first nine days I had over $2,800 in retail sales at the age of 18, opened my bank account, and never looked back!
How long have you been a consultant and what do you hope to accomplish?
I have been a consultant for three and a half years now. I achieved the Manager title the same year I joined and have held it ever since. While, yes, my ultimate goal is to reach Ambassador, what really excites me is becoming District Director - A lady in Red. That moment will be huge for me!
Finish this sentence - the best reason to become a JAFRA Consultant is…
The best reason to become a JAFRA consultant is because of all the fun you will experience, and all of the friendships and money you will make. No other outlet could bring you so much joy and fulfillment.
What JAFRA product(s) do you currently use and can’t live without?
I use everything of course...I use the Royal Jelly Ritual along with the Royal Jelly Eye Concentrate Capsules, and Retinol every night! I cannot live without Royal Jelly Lipstick…I wear it every single day as well as the Risqué fragrance and Royal Jelly Milk Balm Advanced.
What inspires you the most? What are you most passionate about?
The corporate employees (Paulo, Scott, Ivan, etc.) and my best friends that are Ambassadors inspire me the most! I am passionate about every single aspect of JAFRA. I joke that I would even purchase JAFRA underwear if I could! Talking and sharing JAFRA with others, as well as being a leader for my team is my biggest passion. I catch myself getting teary-eyed when I talk about JAFRA with others and that's how I know I'm with the right company doing the right thing.
What most people don't know about me is...?
What most people don't know about me is that I used to be very shy and was a huge introvert. If you weren't close family and friends, I didn't care to talk to you. But, ever since joining JAFRA, I have come out of my shell and can become friends with a complete stranger and probably even make a sale or two with them! I'm now a social butterfly. I have JAFRA to thank for my personal and professional growth!
