This is episode 63 of the Pam Sowder Podcast, with your host, Pam Sowder! Pam has over 2 decades of field and corporate experience and was voted one of the most influential women in direct selling. She helps match the daily needs of distributors to everyday life challenges.


Pam is incredibly excited to introduce you all to today’s guest! Ashleigh Mayfield is an absolute go-getter who has been a part of It Works for just over 3 years now! Prior to being with It Works, she was a full-time retail manager and her husband was a pastor on staff. They were overworked, tired, and working 50-60/per week when they were only getting paid for 40. She woke up one day and knew she wanted more from life! She was following a total stranger on Instagram who had everything she wanted — she had the freedom, the house, the car; a beautiful life full of happiness. Soon, she walked away from her job and joined the business. And, in less than 3 years, it has completely changed her life! She and her husband have climbed to the highest rank and are not stopping anytime soon!


Tune in to hear all about Ashleigh’s incredible journey in the business from getting started to achieving the highest rank at It Works, her advice for those new (and old!) to the business in conquering their fears and overcoming complacency, and key pieces of advice to building up your team. Ashleigh also shares what she has learned over the three years she has been in the business, some of her incredible nuggets of wisdom, and an important message she has for listeners!
