My Tropic Story
I joined Tropic Skincare as an independent Ambassador in July (2020), after using the skincare products for a few months and loving them. I had been thinking about starting a business for a while, but the idea of starting from scratch was just so daunting. My friend who is an Ambassador, introduced me to Tropic had talked to me about the Ambassador opportunity when she first joined in August 2019 and I was curious about it from the start, but it just wasn’t the right time. I had my 10 month old son and I just didn’t feel ready to commit at the time. In hindsight I wish I had taken the leap then!
Taking the leap as a Tropic Skincare Ambassador!
Fast forward to July this year and I was feeling out of sorts. I was working part time, so less income than before so that I could be with my son, which I love, but extra income would always be welcome to pay the bills, pay more to our credit cards and to pay for some days out and holidays (when the world opens back up after Covid-19!). But more than that, I had lost my mojo. I no longer felt like myself, I had lost my confidence, felt frumpy and annoyed with my weight and wasn’t really looking after myself. I also only had a handful of very close friends and would love to meet some like minded women to socialise with. The idea of joining Tropic Skincare as an Ambassador and starting my own business was becoming more and more appealing. I had sold make up and skincare a few years back and it had given me so much confidence and motivation, I had also qualified as a make up artist during that time and so the idea of getting back into beauty was appealing to me. What better reason to take care of my skin and play around with gorgeous make up and pampering products, it would boost my self-esteem, make me spend some time on looking after myself and give me something new to aim for and goals to achieve that was just for me as Steph. Not Steph the Mum. I also thought it would be great to meet new people and make some friends from both the wider Tropic team and my customers. And as well as making some extra cash, I would get my skincare, make up, body care and haircare products that I already use at a discounted rate! Win Win right! So I took the leap and joined and oh am I glad I did!
