PlanNet Marketing is proud to welcome new One-Star Director Alana Evans to the 20/20 Club! Alana tells us she is originally from Washington, DC but lives in Angleton, Texas, a small town about 45 minutes south of Houston. She relates, “I am recently married and a stay-at-home mom to four children ages 14, 12, 9, and 9 months, all involved in different activities, and a husband who works 12-hour days, six days a week. I LOVE to travel! When my husband and I decided that I would stay at home, I knew I needed to find a way to make this passion into a paycheck and help our family. Little did I know I had found not only a way to book travel, but I could build a team and really bring in money. With the help of Director Cathi Bray, I started putting ads out on Facebook. So no matter what your situation looks like, keep your “WHY” in front of your face and you can grow.
“I traveled a lot (14 countries in ten years) before I got married and had my daughter; my favorite places were Budapest, Prague, Amsterdam, and Vietnam. I’ve always loved to travel and have had the passion to show people that they could travel also. I don’t have any tips, except to stay consistent. If someone tells you no, don’t get discouraged; eventually momentum will hit. I’ve been actively building a team since November, and it wasn’t until March that momentum hit. In March, I had 12 people register…some of whom were people we’d been talking to since November. My best advice is to trust your upline. Director Bray kept reaching out to my prospects, and I was able to find more people who were interested.
“I’ve heard many people say that network marketing is a game of follow the leader, so I have to thank the leader (Director Bray) I followed, and the leaders she followed. They set up a plan for me and I stuck like glue to it. I succeeded because of that plan and because I was consistent. Never once in the past seven months did I waiver from that plan; never once in the seven months did I take a break. “It’s worth it. There have been lots of days and nights that I’m on the phone doing three-way calls or prospecting; it annoys my husband and kids, but they know our bigger picture. If I have to miss one or two dinners a week, they get it. We are done living paycheck-to-paycheck; we are going to thrive, not survive, and that means putting in work. We celebrated when I hit One-Star and then I told them, ‘I’m not done – the calls and work have to keep going because we aren’t there yet.’ Don’t stop, even when no one is signing up…keep pushing because momentum will hit.
“I want to show my children (especially my daughters) that you can stay at home with your children and do that job but you can also provide and help create a legacy. I obviously LOVE to travel. My goal is to help all of our children see the world and become immersed in cultures around the world. We live in such a globalized world that to succeed, they need to understand other cultures, and why study that from books? Let’s go and experience it!
“I’m just an ordinary person with an ordinary life, a family who supports me, and an extended family who didn’t always, but I promise you that if you are willing to work, your ordinary life will become extraordinary…and that’s what’s in my future.”
Each week we will list the new 20/20 Club Members as soon as their pictures are received so that their recognition will be timely. The personal 20/20 Club features will continue; currently there are many 20/20 Club Members who have sent in their bios, but due to the growing number, have not yet been featured in the blog. Watch for your bio in future editions of PlanNetNow!
Recognition is very important and we hope this new format shows how much we value our 20/20 Club Members! Congratulations to everyone who has achieved this very important level in your PlanNet business!
PlanNet Marketing is pleased to welcome Rolonda Travel Criss to the 20/20 Club! Rolonda was born and raised in Dallas, TX in the community many know as Oak Cliff. She currently resides in Grand Prairie, TX. She tells us, “I love spending time with my family! I have a son, Ayven and a daughter, Addisyn, who have been such blessings to me. I have a wonderful husband, Antwaun, and we were married 10 years in June. I also love to bake and decorate cupcakes and cakepops! And of course traveling, hence my business name, “Let’s Bake A Trip.”
“One thing many do not know about me is I did not get on a plane until I was 25 years old. In 2009, my husband and I applied for our passports for our honeymoon to Mexico, gifted to us from my In-Loves (In-Laws). We have traveled everywhere, from Mexico to Jamaica to Dominican Republic as consumers of travel (using a travel agent). Until I found this business! I have been able to set my kids up in a way that they are 20 plus years ahead of me in life! And that speaks volumes! They have been on planes at the ages of four and six…again, I did not fly until I was 25. They had passports at the ages of four and five...I did not get a passport until I was 26.
“I have achieved success because I am sharing my story with everyone I know and everyone I don’t. I feel I have a duty to show others that you do not have to wait to show your kids the world or you don’t have to wait to see the world yourself. I have learned to not count anyone out of this business as a prospect. And tell EVERYONE!
“Some fun facts: I think I love Disney World more than my kids do and I am a bit ashamed. Also I call my mom and dad three to four times a day, as they are my cheerleaders to be the best ‘ME’ I can be! And I am the “middle” child of three amazing sisters and auntie to my niece, Adrienne!”
1. Where were you born and raised; current city; family; hobbies; past business highlights...
I was born and raised in Newark, NJ by my grandmother. I grew up in humble beginnings, but was taught to be disciplined and work hard for whatever I want in life. I value family and enjoy experiencing new destinations with those I love. When this business was first introduced to me, I could only dream of doing the things I now do.
2. How have you grown or personally developed since joining PlanNet?
Since joining PlanNet, I have grown professionally, mentally, spiritually,and physically. My mindset and work ethic have grown to a level that has allowed me to exceed my life goals. I would’ve never believed my hard work and perseverance would retire me from teaching at 41 years old. The professional development of PlanNet Marketing did that!
3. What drives you; what motivates you?
Leaving a legacy for my children is what drives me to keep helping people and educating people on this amazing opportunity.
4. Who would you consider a role model and why?
My grandmother, who raised seven of her own children and raised me, is my role model. She showed me what discipline and hard work looks like. She never gave up at challenges.
5. The three words that describe you best are:
Optimistic, Determined, Philanthropic
6. If you had some sound advice to give to anyone what would it be?
Never allow the fear of achieving a goal prevent you from failing your way forward. What you wish to have in life is on the other side of failure.
7. What does your life look like five years from now?
In five years, I will be a millionaire and I’m bringing anyone attached with me down the same path to success.

PlanNet Marketing congratulates new One-Star Director Vanita K. Baugh! Vanita tells us that she was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and is the baby out of 10 children. She recently moved from Richmond, VA and currently resides in Dallas, Texas. Her interests include all things creative, cooking, writing, still life drawing, fashion styling, blogging, fitness and she is all about spending time with her family. Vanita shares, “I have a heart for the homeless and domestic violence victims. I served this population as a mental health counselor for five years in New York and donated clothes from my clothing boutiques to battered women’s shelters in Virginia. Currently by day I process insurance claims for auto and property.
“I've been traveling since I was a teenager. It all began when my dad first took me to Disneyland. Ever since, I've had the travel bug! Thus far I've been to Thailand, Singapore, Germany, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Anguilla, St. Maarten, Jamaica, Las Vegas, Miami, and California, just to name a few. Now that I am in the travel industry, my bucket list has grown and I am excited to have the world as my classroom!
“As far as my success with PlanNet Marketing, I contribute it to my determination, drive, being focused, consistent, staying plugged in, with the help of my team and support of my sponsor, Coach Cliff Coward. A few tips I would give is to remain consistent, focus on one thing, and the fortune is in the follow-ups.
“A fun fact! My first business was a designer consignment shop called My Closet - Your Treasures.”
PlanNet Marketing is proud to welcome One-Star Director Brigitte Harding to the prestigious 80/80 Club! Brigitte shares, “How did I end up here? I would never have imagined this for myself. Of course, I have a vision board. It's full of travel. It's got a beach house. But I never knew how I'd start making these things happen. One year ago, I was introduced (smacked across the head) with this opportunity. I turned it down. THREE times. I signed up as an ITA so I could earn a little fun money and travel more. I was working as a nurse and an ESL teacher and this was my third ‘job.’ I had a four-year old, a mortgage, two loans, and credit card debt. I earned money. I had fantastic vacation opportunities available to me – and I still couldn't take them. I had financial freedom but no time freedom. I had to wait two weeks to get two days off together when it wasn't my weekend on. I still had to beg and scramble to take time off to be with my family, have surgery, recover from illness, or go trick or treating with my child.
“I was always looking for something but I didn't know what. I have always said I'm an introvert with a little dash of entrepreneurial spirit thrown in. But I'm not a salesperson and could not live that life and feel authentic. Who knew I could do this? Not me. Like I said, my sponsor brought up PlanNet Marketing to me three times and I kept turning her down. ‘No thanks, not for me.’ ‘Nah, I don't really want to do the MLM thing.’ ‘I don't think I can keep that up and I don't want to bug my family and friends.’ Luckily, she knew I had to figure it out on my own. As I started sharing my new travel business, people started asking questions. They were curious; they wanted in on this magical travel world! I realized I could do this without feeling spammy! I could build relationships and establish rapport. I could help people! There were dozens, hundreds, thousands of people like me that knew there must be more to life than punching a clock and hating it, and were just looking for a foothold to climb out!
“I faithfully went to work at my nursing job day in and day out. Didn't call out sick, worked extra when needed, stayed late if someone didn't show up. I never got a thank you. I never got acknowledged. The only thing that mattered to management was having enough bodies to keep things at a legally safe patient/staff ratio. In April, after being disrespected and disregarded, I decided to retire. It was scary; it was the unknown. So, I put my time and energy into my travel business and PlanNet and in May, I worked my last shift as a nurse at the age of 36. My biggest hesitation was that I wouldn't be helping people anymore. But guess what? I help people every day! I help people gain financial freedom, time freedom, personal freedom. I also now have the time freedom to not miss holidays, birthdays, and weekends. I get to see my child's plays and sporting events. I paid off those two loans and my credit card! And I did it while feeling proud of myself and not dreading work every day. I am building a life I don't want to take a vacation from.”
