This is episode 86 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.


This week, Pam is joined by Mike Lemire and Brandy Bright! Mike and Brandy are an amazing couple who have grown together with It Works! Global! Together, they’ve promoted to Triple Diamond in three months, Presidential Diamond in six months, and Ambassador Diamond in only ten months! They’ve even already landed in the top 20 within the company a few times!


Before It Works, Brandy was a military wife and a single mom. She had tried a few MLMs but never quite found her home until It Works. Mike is a former marine who was recruited into the network marketing industry 24 years ago. He had been at the top of two direct sales companies when he decided to plant his flagpole at It Works! Together as a couple, Brandy and Mike want to build up a residual income that will be there for their children’s children — fostering an environment where they can all grow.


In this episode, Mike and Brandy are sharing their tips, tricks, and advice about the industry. They know that balancing work, a relationship, and your family is busy work and they want to help you on your path to achieving greatness!
