My name is Rachel Stoll.  
I am so honored to share my story with you. I was raised Amish but ran off and got married at 16, to Tim, who is still my best friend! This year is 29 years together for us, we have 5 children and five  grands, soon to be six!!  Our oldest son is Clint, he is 26 and and then 3 daughters, Renee 25, Amy 19 and Robin 16 and then our baby Timo who is 14. :)  I have always been a stay at home Momma/now a Grandma. I home school my kids, cook yummy food every day, love sewing,and gardening. God has blessed us immeasurably!   I am busy ALL the time! :) I joined a company called Plexus Worldwide two years ago just to get so I could get my products cheaper.   Because the ploducts were amazing and my husband and I had amazing results, I began sharing my story with friends and….guess what? I started building a team!   I ranked  Emerald in Febuary 2016 and with that rank advancemeant I earned a trip for my husband and I to go to Hawaii, I earned the Plexus Lexus, and am supplementing our income which makes my husband happy!  This business has blessed us greatly. 
 
In my two year journey of sharing these products and building my business I learned some things that I wish I had known sooner. I learned all people including myself are beautiful and have a gift and purpose in life!  I learned and am still learning that I can accomplish whatever I set my mind to do and so can you!  I discovered that empowering people to believe in themselves is very rewarding. I learned that more moms and dads lay awake at night worrying about finances then health. I believe in Health and Wellness, I believe we have natures pharmacy all around us, I belive theres something admirable to say for parents wanting to stay home and raise their kids while supporting their family from home and I truly believe Network Marketing is the future!      
  I believe these products are needed by everyone and absolutely anyone can do this business! 
My mission over the last 16 years has been researching health.

Detoxification is a process that expels excess waste and accumulated toxins from our body. Fortunately, Plexus has developed products to help the body detoxify and cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract. –

 I feel compassion for others hurting.  This too shall pass eventually IF we dont let our discouragement and skepticism cloud our judgment and keep us from trying what he brings to us to answer our prayers.  To think I almost said no.  
Sincerily,  Rachel

Coconut Banana Muffins

Since going gluten free, and dairy free, and sugar free, and oat free…..you get the picture HAHA! My diet has changed a lot the past few months while learning the best way to deal with my autoimmune disease. And it can be a bit boring! Plus all of yall that like my recipes have been asking when I will have more. The truth is the majority of the stuff I eat, tastes ok, but not great haha. A few items I’ve tried making I thoughts were pretty decent and my husband disagreed greatly. I guess when you are on a very limited diet, your taste buds begin to change and things you wouldn’t like before, you enjoy now!

 

I did finally find a recipe I thought others would enjoy. It has become my staple in the mornings as I greatly need carbohydrates when I wake up, but finding some that fit my unique needs was very hard. Let’s just say these are so good that no one even knows they are healthy, gluten free, and super clean!! And don’t let the name scare you, they don’t taste like coconut to me at all!

You Are Enough!

As a Mom, many of us struggle with our perspective on if we are doing a good enough job. Lately that has been something that has been a BIG struggle for me. In the past, I always knew I was doing the best I could. I thought of myself as a great Mom who was able to handle so much. And then I got sick, and suddenly my normal was not the same anymore. That has been a big adjustment for me, and I think many people struggle with the same thing. Instead of doing the best we can, we compare ourselves to others and how they are doing better than us!

For each of us it’s different, but for me I see the energy other people have, or the fun things they go do. I get tired very easily, I get sick very easily, and keeping up has been such a struggle. I recently went out of town and the whole time I was there, I kept beating myself up that I couldn’t keep up. But the reality is we are all so different!!! We all have different strengths, we all have different struggles, we all have different hurdles we have to overcome. And its so very important to remember NOT to compare yourself to others. All that matters is YOU do the best you can, and remind yourself at the end of the day that you are doing the BEST you can….and that is OK!

 

As Moms it’s important to remember, we need to do the best we can and not worry about the rest! Your best is good enough, so stop comparing it to other’s. I know that is a reminder we all need. Keep up the great work Moms!!!

Are You A Good Leader? Or A GREAT Leader?

I get asked all the time “How Do I Create Leaders In My Business?” And the truth is, you have to first be a great leader to create one! Now, I don’t think of myself as a great leader. I think of myself as someone willing to work hard to hit my goals, and someone who will work hard to help others do the same!! I think the keyword is someone willing to work. Many times you find leaders who rely on others to do the work for them, but a GREAT leader has no problem getting down to work.

quote

I come from a management background before working from home so I think that allows me to give a good opinion on what makes a good leader! But again, these are just my thoughts on what is needed to make a GREAT leader 😉

  1. Be An Example. For me this is one of the most important things! I’ve worked with people before that will ask me to do things they aren’t willing to do. I think great leaders need to set an example for others to follow! If i ask my team to do something, I do it right there with them! A great leader shows them how to become great, and does not just dictate.
  2. Communicate. Many times leaders will sit on the sidelines and watch people work. I believe to be a great leader you need to be involved with those you work with. Say HI to them, make them feel important, and reach out to help them. It’s a great feeling when you are new, and a leader reaches out to you and offers support.
  3. Training. I use this example to my team all the time….if you got a job at a coffee shop, you would have to learn how to make the drinks before stepping up and making a customer a Grande Decaf Skinny Mocha with an extra shot of espresso. The same goes in ANY business! Before you start working, you need to be trained. And a good leader makes sure they have lots of training themselves, but a GREAT leader makes sure you get trained too! ((now keep in mind, they can offer you the training but only you can do it and follow it to have success))
  4. Be Consistent. Many people come and go, but a GREAT leader stays the course no matter what obstacle gets thrown in there way. Trust me, for every excuse you have, a GREAT leader has encountered that too but they chose not to let them stop you. My most successful month working from home we had our house flood, had to buy a new car, got our bank account hacked, and they found a nodule on my thyroid! But I showed up to work each day. Consistency is what builds success.
  5. Be Honest. No great leader is born that way. We all struggle and we all have different problems we face. I am very shy if I don’t know people, I don’t like to be the center of attention, and I hate to receive recognition publicly. But I push past those things….sure with lots of nerves and sweating, but I’m honest about these things! That shows people you are human and we all face obstacles, but a GREAT leader doesn’t let those things stop them.

4504-great-leaders-inspire-greatness-in-others

There is no exact script on what makes a GREAT leader. I think at the end of the day what truly matters is that you care about seeing other people succeed, and you try as hard as you can. That is my goal when being a leader, to keep trying and learning and be the best I can to help others!

Courage To Leave The Comfort Zone

I’m one of those people who likes my comfort zone. I don’t like change or new things. I like what I know and doing the same things each day. But over the last few months I’ve pushed myself out of my comfort zone in many big ways and It reminds me over and over how important it is not to settle!

 

Last week I flew on a plane for the first time. Crazy right?!?! But living on the east coast, anywhere I’ve gone we have always just driven! Flying on a plane was a new thing. I also went to Salt Lake City, for 4 nights without my family. Another very new thing!! The only time I’ve been away from my kids, was when I was having another kid haha. I was also going to meet people I’ve never seen in person, and get an award on stage. More new things that are GREAT, but still made me nervous!!

61759b05-c647-495c-b1e1-141e6eef90c0

To start it all out, my health hasn’t been great the past few weeks. I get exhausted very easily, my stomach is super sensitive, and I catch any cold/bug that is within a mile of me! To make it even better, I got poison ivy 3 days before my trip!!! So of course there went a good night sleep when my neck was itching like crazy. In fact, I’m pretty sure the night before I left I only got maybe 2 hours of sleep. I was so nervous about all these new things, I worked myself up!! I was a hot mess….but I pushed through it!!!

 

Of course my first flight ever had to be the Atlanta Airport….that place is insane!!! We were running late and my husband dropped me at the wrong spot so I had to walk ages to find where to go. And then the self check in spot, I could not for the life of me figure out how to scan the email they sent me from my phone lol. I still couldn’t returning home either haha. Finally I gave up and asked for help. That airport might be crazy busy, but people were so kind in offering to help and direct me where to go. And luckily they have lots of signs! I’m a big fan of knowing exactly what I need to do so all those signs helped a ton.

 

13239090_10154142604075890_5169848301867984778_nFriends help too! My best friend knows how I am so she sent me a detailed list of what to do, where to go, and in what order haha. That really helped my nerves to feel more prepared. In fact, I was able to help someone else in the security line….they were surprised when I said it was my first flight haha. Once I was on the plane and we were in the air, I felt much better! It’s so crazy how the unknown can make you feel so sick! I discovered I am not a big fan of flying, especially the rocking parts, but I did it!!!

 

Of course me being me, I ended up super sick that night from all the nerves and lack of food, but 12 hours of sleep and some awesome friends checking and helping me made for a MUCH better next day!!! I struggled the whole time with stomach issues, exhaustion, and just going all day long…but it was worth it! My heart about beat out of my chest when it was time for my award, but it was worth it!!! I’m still exhausted three days after being back…but it was worth it!!!

 

Sometimes we get so stuck in our comfort zone, we avoid at all costs trying something new. This was a wonderful opportunity and I got THREE awards but I almost didn’t go because I was so nervous!! For many years I have just been a “mom” and use to putting everyone else before me, that I forget sometimes I do pretty great things and need to be celebrated haha. And I need to set an example for my kids by getting out of my comfort zone and remembering a few minutes of courage can change your life!

I know my job has changed my life, and made things a lot better for my family. But now I have the honor of turning around and helping other people do the same!! To me, that is truly amazing to know one small doze of courage is now helping so many other people. Years ago I was in drama class, chorus, on the school news…I actually enjoyed being the center of attention!! As an adult, I prefer my comfort zone and not having attention drawn to me. Getting awards made me nervous!!! But after, the emails/texts/messages of people who saw ME, just a normal Mom of 3 busy kids, reminded me that showing them I did this, encouraged them to know they could do the same.

 

Get out of your comfort zone…if not for yourself, then for those watching and looking for someone to inspire them!
