New One-Star Director Keyana Woodhouse tells us she is from a small historic town outside of Orlando, FL named Eatonville. Established in 1887, Eatonville is the first incorporated all-black city in the nation and also is important in African-American history as the home of Zora Neale Hurston, the Harlem Renaissance writer known for her novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. She has lived in Houston, TX for the past 12 years.
Keyana relates, “This opportunity has afforded me the ability to travel outside of the country four times. I have been on a cruise and several land destinations! My very first cruise was the Inteletravel Quest Cruise where I won a trip to Turks & Caicos!
“I am achieving success in PlanNet Marketing by being coachable and not waiting on my coaches to build my business. I am self-motivated; I have always taken the initiative to absorb every training, call, and webinar. No matter how many times I have heard the presentation, there was something new I heard every time. I am independent, so I desired to learn more to make the load light on my coach and to be able to have an intelligent conversation about the opportunity.
“My dominant personality color is green, so therefore I do need the facts but I am not knowledge on ice. Be open to learn from the top leaders who are pouring their hearts out at big events. Soak it in, take what you need, and leave the rest. Be you! We are in a relationship-building business, so when speaking with people you want to be authentic. People can sense your energy, whether you are confident or not.
“After spending six years in college and coming out only to find out the job I thought would be there was nowhere to be found, I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO CREATE MY OWN LANE!! Eighteen months ago, I started my journey in PlanNet Marketing knowing that it wasn't going to be easy, yet I believed in myself and I refused to allow any situation to stop me. When starting a new business, you must be laser-focused and consistent. Learn everything you can about the industry, economics, and the company. When talking with potential business partners, you need to be knowledgeable so that you attract the right people to your business.
“Entrepreneurship is not a career choice, it's a MINDSET!! You must personally develop. You must have the mindset to go after your goals regardless of how you feel some days and regardless of what people may say. This was not easy at all, but it was worth it, because the traditional way didn’t work for me. I knew I had to fight, because I desired to leave a legacy for my family.
“Some fun facts about me: I am a lover of theater and arts and I enjoy dancing to all types of music. I love learning about different cultures by way of dance. I used dance to heal and recover from things I went through growing up and even today as a stress reliever. I teach liturgical arts to the youth at my church and I am currently learning traditional West African drum and dance. I love it! Plus, it’s a great workout. I also love to coupon shop! Why pay full price when you can get your food and laundry products for less? I’m always looking to save wherever I can!”
