Matt and Karina dreamed of getting married, buying a home, and having kids, but with the stress of mounting bills and full-time work, their dreams always seemed out of reach.
“We knew we wanted to get married and start our family, but what we were doing just wasn’t getting us there,” says Karina.
Karina worked in real estate and Matt was launching his own business in the fitness industry, but the couple faced a lot of debt and felt a void in their life.
“We’ve never been short on passion; we just didn’t have the funds to make our dreams a reality,” they say. “The week to week was a struggle, and we were afraid of what the future held.”
The couple was exhausted, and when their friends, Brett Davis and Samantha Gascoigne, noticed how stressed they were, Brett introduced Matt to Isagenix as a way to help.
“Brett and I discussed the Isagenix opportunity, but I didn’t think I had the time or energy to invest in anything else,” remembers Matt. “I spent several months mulling it over before I even told Karina.”
To his surprise, when Matt told Karina about the opportunity, she said she was ready to try it without hesitation.
“I had been searching for a way to earn another stream of income to help with our financial situation, so Isagenix came at the perfect time,” she says.
Strengthening Their ‘Why’
To learn more about the products, Matt and Karina ordered their first 30 Day System.
“We had always lived a healthy lifestyle, but Isagenix helped us take it to the next level,” says Karina. “We both felt a huge increase in energy and positivity, and as we continued to use the products and feel the changes, we knew we had to share this amazing system.”
Matt and Karina threw themselves into building their Isagenix business and began by setting both personal and business goals.
“We knew we needed to learn everything we could if we wanted to succeed in this business, so we made the decision to attend Celebration,” says Karina. “We were so inspired and saw so many normal people like us doing extraordinary things. We figured if they can do it, why can’t we?”
That event was a game-changer, and it helped Matt and Karina solidify their “why” and immerse themselves in the Isagenix culture and community. The pair now says that they couldn’t have reached this milestone if they hadn’t attended that event, as the beginning of their journey wasn’t easy. They faced a lot of negativity and had to learn to focus on the end goal rather than people’s opinions.
“We definitely learned to have a thick skin and got comfortable being uncomfortable!” shares Matt.
Growing Their Family and Dreams
With the help of Isagenix, Matt and Karina have achieved what they were dreaming of and are married and raising a beautiful baby girl.
“We knew when we started this business that we wanted a family, and it was important to us to bring our baby into a financially stable world,” they say. “We set small weekly and monthly goals to get us here, and now we can provide for her and are both able to spend time with her.”
Matt and Karina take their roles and leaders very seriously. By focusing on their team member’s goals one-on-one, they are able to help each member utilize the events and tools provided by Isagenix.
“We emphasize that while this can be a life-changing opportunity, it also requires dedication, hard work, and a true love for this company and what we stand for.”
Now that Matt and Karina are in a position to provide for themselves while showing others how to do the same, they are focusing on showing their gratitude by sharing their time and income with those who are less fortunate through programs like Make-A-Wish®.
“Supporting those in need is something I’ve always wanted to do, but before Isagenix, we were just scraping by,” says Karina. “Now, we have the opportunity and responsibility to help as many people as we can in every way possible. We are proving to people that there is another path in life, and that path will allow them to dream again.”
