As I sit here and contemplate the New Year, I think about how much the workplace has changed since 2020. (For the better, might I add.)
Before the pandemic, too many people held neither rewarding nor fulfilling jobs and demanded too much while giving too little. As soon as offices shut down and these employees started working from home, they enjoyed outstanding work-life balance. For example:
- There was time to enjoy a run or have a healthy breakfast with the kids before that first morning meeting.
- There weren’t any stressful commutes or gas bills the size of the mortgage.
- Pyjamas were acceptable work attire. (Outside of Zoom meetings, anyway!)
They wanted to keep it this way forever. Who wouldn’t? Consequently, a LOT of them resigned to start their own businesses.
I get it. That was my story until 2017. I worked so hard in my previous career that I burned myself out. Why? Because it was expected of me, even though it took a toll on my personal life. I knew there had to be something better- a career that made money AND left me excited to get out of bed in the morning.
I found it by becoming a ZYIA Active rep. By selling and supporting an activewear brand that made women stronger, stylish, and more confident, I empowered myself to live the life I always wanted. Later on, I expanded my business so I could empower others.
You can, too. And here’s how you can do it with ZIYA. In this guide, I answer frequently asked questions such as:
- What is a ZYI Active rep?
- What are ZYIA rep requirements?
- How much does it cost to join ZYIA?
- How many ZYIA reps are there?
What is a ZYIA Active Rep?
ZYIA is an active lifestyle brand that promotes health, wellness, and activity. As a culture, its goal is to make our lives more vibrant, energetic, and fun. Instead of bosses, you have sponsors and fellow ZYIA Active Reps who encourage your success and form a community that lifts you up instead of tearing you down (translated: no office politics). Best of all, your ‘office attire’ consists of comfortable and fashionable fitness apparel.
As a ZYIA Active rep, you’re an independent representative of this fantastic brand. Instead of putting in scheduled hours and reporting to a boss, you develop your business at a pace and scale that suits your lifestyle. You’re on no one else’s clock but your own.
For a busy mom, this could mean spending a few hours a week selling to friends and family and making the rest of your sales online. If you’re set on a career, you could create your own unique job doing trade shows, partnering with fitness influencers, and growing your very own sales team, like I did.
What Are ZYIA Rep Requirements?
When it comes to ZYIA rep requirements, this is easily one of the most inclusive brands out there. All you have to do is buy a starter kit (more on that below), and you are open for business!
That’s it! Total freedom and fulfillment for a fraction of what you’d have to invest in other industries.
How Much Does it Cost to Join ZYIA?
That’s another thing I loved about ZYIA. How much does it cost to join ZYIA? Very little! You don’t need startup capital to succeed- just a willingness to learn and consistency in your approach.
To get started, you purchase a starter kit for $395 CAD / $295 USD. It includes:
- Pair of classic leggings
- Sports bra
- Pair of joggers
- Mesh hat
- Jacket or tank top
- Electronic gift card for $135 CAD / $100 USD, which you can use to order additional pieces.
You also receive $50 CAD / USD worth of business tools (includes order forms, product catalogues, brochures, a starter guide, and two free months of Back Office support) and a personalized website that costs only $21 CAD / $15 USD per month. Each month that you achieve $600 USD in sales, this fee is waived, so you can quickly work your way up to a free business website! Most people on the team never pay for their site!
Soon, if someone asks you, “How much does it cost to join ZYIA?” you’ll be able to say, “First a little, and soon nothing!”
How Many ZYIA Reps Are There?
ZYIA Active is a dynamic and growing company. Activewear is one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide. Experts predict that by 2025, US market value will surpass $100 billion in yearly sales! We’re far from being oversaturated. In fact, there’s SO much room for more!
At present, there are only approximately 70,000 reps in the USA and Canada combined! Unlike mega-corporations where you’re expected to build yourself up by tearing others down, everyone gets ahead by supporting each other. If you’ve got questions, concerns, or even need a morale boost, you can connect with sponsors and fellow reps at events and on social media.
Since I became a ZIYA Active Rep in 2017, I’ve met some amazing people and been privileged to sponsor some VERY successful reps! (Psst- there’s room for you on my ZYIA Active team too!) We’re an international team of strong women who work together to make other women happier and healthier, and I couldn’t be prouder!
What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?
As you contemplate the New Year along with me, what are your plans? Are you thinking that there’s more to life than commuting and cubicles? Trust me, there is, and I’m not being idealistic.
My own successful business proves that a personally and financially rewarding career can be one and the same.
With ZYIA Active, you can-
- Have a career you love
- Achieve a healthy work-life balance
- Work in your pyjamas (but I personally recommend ZYIA leggings- even more comfy if you can believe it!)
Are you ready? If the answer is yes, I want to hear from you! If you would like to discuss the exciting possibilities of ZYIA, give me a shout!
