The Truth About Monat
If you’re like me, you’ve reached a place where you absolutely need more in life. Either you’re at a job you don’t love or you’re not currently working and feel like you could do more.
Listen, life is too short to keep showing up at a job you don’t love and you absolutely can do more.
Starting a business is no easy thing (trust me, I have two!) but it’s well worth it in the long run if you work hard and remain consistent. The purpose of multi-level marketing (MLM) companies is that all the legwork is essentially completed before you even start up. The product is already manufactured, the guidelines are already in place, and you basically know exactly how to start up without the fear of starting your own business from scratch.
A lot of people seem to overlook the fact that joining an MLM company is still an investment of time and money and should absolutely be researched before hopping on board. I totally get the feeling of excitement at the prospect of making your own hours and being your own boss but promise me you’ll look into a company before you just sign up, okay?
For the purpose of this message to you, we’ll be talking about my company of choice, MONAT.

Every MLM company has its advantages and disadvantages, so far I haven’t come across any disadvantages but I’ll let you know if I do. So far, I seriously love the way it’s structured.
You don’t have to purchase inventory to get started, finally!
They GIVE you a website! Other companies feel the need to make you pay for this feature, I’m absolutely obsessed with the fact that I have a professional looking, fully accessible website to send over to potential customers. It’s set up to make my life a whole lot easier. Want to see it? Visit beautybosstosh.mymonat.com. Easy to remember too, isn’t it?
Customers make their orders on your website and Monat ships the product directly to them. Hallelujah!
You can earn 30-40% from retail customer sales and 15-50% from VIP customer sales.
Last, but certainly not least, the products are made here in the US. That makes me smile 🙂
There are two ways to make money in this business; selling product and building a team.
This is probably the easiest thing you’ll ever do. When you have a product that you love and use for yourself, it doesn’t take a lot of thought or effort to talk to people about it. I was surprised at how many people started asking ME about it.
Let me tell you a little backstory here.
MONAT was originally introduced to me by my awesome husband, Nate. When we started working the social media angle with our business, he started discovering a ton of posts related to hair thinning and an incredible product that apparently reduced this thinning and even helped regrow hair in balding spots. As someone who was suffering from this at the time, it peaked his interested and he brought it over to show me. He said he thought we should order it, it’s worth a shot when nothing else is working, right?
I didn’t know of anyone who sold the product so I just quickly posted to my Facebook timeline, “Anyone out there sell Monat?” Unfortunately, none of my friends or family sold the product but a few of my friends did refer me to their friends to order. In the end, I spoke to a friend of a friend and asked what we needed to order. She gave me all the info I needed and sent me over to her website. I browsed the website and added Nate’s products to my cart. I decided to see if there was anything out there for me to use.
I have had a lot of buildup and itchiness on my scalp, a problem since about Sophomore year of college (8 years ago now!). Yes, I have literally had this problem that long. I added the Hydration System to the cart and went to checkout.
The website let me know that I could save some money if I signed up as a VIP for $20.00. I thought to myself, “You can never see results with a shampoo right away, we’ll probably have to order it a few times anyway…may as well sign up as a VIP for that discount.”
Super long story short, we fell in the love with the product and suddenly friends and family were asking us about it. No, I hadn’t intended on signing up as a Market Partner. But when you have so many people asking where to order, the obvious choice is bring that extra money in for your household rather than send the business somewhere else.
Take a moment to think about the friend of a friend that I purchased from. We’ve never met but I purchased 2 hair systems from her, an Eye Wonder (more about this later), some vitamins, and signed up as a VIP on my first order. Lucky girl. 🙂
Back to the story; after the 5th person asked, I paid that $99 (minus the $20 I had already spent to become a VIP which I thought was nice). I had immediate access to my own website and training resources to learn more about the products.
I’ve previously been involved with other MLM companies and have since decided that I don’t believe in inventory. I just don’t. Give me all the tools that I need to succeed in this side hustle and I will be one happy girl.
Essentially, to sell the product, just be you. Try the product -> Love the product -> Tell people about the product -> Make money.
Building a Team
This one is a little more intense because it involves a commission structure that I will go over in detail at a later date. But the basic concept is much like other companies, building a team = $$$. Not only this though, because not everything in the world is about money.
Building a team means building a tribe.
You’ll be building a network of like-minded women (and sometimes men) that feel passionate about being entrepreneurs and providing for their families. This team will be your network and happy place. This is the place where you let your leadership shine. Guide this team to success as you learn your way through entrepreneurship.
Becoming a business owner is a big step in life. It means you’ve finally determined your own worth and are excited to work your own hours, build your own team, and make what you earn rather than a below average hourly rate.
