One common trait found among successful individuals is their willingness to move heaven and earth to achieve their dreams. Andrea Samantha hasn’t fallen short in any aspect. From being a hairstylist to becoming a top income earner at Monat, she worked tremendously hard to reach the finish line of her goals.
Growing up in Ohio to a conservative family, Andrea wasn’t exposed to the luxuries of life. She knew what it meant to attain a hard-earned livelihood after seeing her father work day in, day out. “My mom stayed at home with me and my sister, and my dad worked 9-5. He taught us work ethic and that nothing is handed to us.” Since then, Andrea put in copious amounts of effort in each endeavor she took upon.
Her professional career began when she started working as a hairstylist at an Aveda Salon. There onwards, Andrea gradually acquired the skill sets needed to catapult her to the next stage of success. With her growing interest in sales, she decided to leap forward, and as they say, the rest was history. “Being a hairstylist, I was commission-based, so I’ve always had to be on my game to grow my clientele and be the base to maintain them. I’m creative, so I’ve dabbled on Etsy and had my own wedding hair and makeup business before starting MONAT in direct sales.”
Soon afterward, Andrea joined MONAT global, where she achieved recognition as the top income earner in direct sales. Having earned one million in commissions during her four years there, she set an impressive benchmark for others to follow. Upon realizing how she wanted to extend her knowledge to benefit others, Andrea entered the coaching field to guide young individuals to reach their goals. “My business is using social media to promote my brand and also to be a top leader to train my team of thousands to do the same. My goal is to have several streams of income, and it was to be able to have financial and time freedom, which I now have.”
However, as it might seem otherwise, she didn’t sail through it all so smoothly. Her rocky marriage stood as an obstacle in her way of accomplishing goals. It held her back to the point where she then decided to prioritize her well-being. Now divorced with two kids, Andrea has undoubtedly come a long way. She adds: “I have a business coach and therapist who have helped me overcome my traumas to work at my best level. I protect my energy, keep my circle small, and I’m very picky about who I surround myself with.”
Andrea hopes to inspire people to overcome their traumas and provide them with hope during dark times.
