This is episode 52 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 SO excited to introduce you to today’s amazing couple: Eli and Trista Marshall! They are top money earners with It Works! Global and are both Ambassador Diamonds. They started their journey 4 years ago. Trista was a Pediatric Registered Nurse and Eli was a firefighter. They have two beautiful, amazing kids, ages 8 and 5! Prior to finding the industry of network marketing, they thought they were both doing what they were supposed to be. They had gone to college, racked up a ton of debt, and found their careers. They thought they were fulfilled… but knew something was missing. They were constantly stuck in the struggle of just barely getting by. Though they were wary at first from heeding the advice of others, they decided to give network marketing a go, and haven’t looked back since!


Eli and Trista have so many tips, so many great stories, and so many actionable steps you can apply to your business starting today! They speak about their experience just getting into network marketing, what helped to accelerate their growth in the industry, how they figured out their ‘why’ as well as their ‘how,’ and what helps to keep their spark lit for the business! You do not want to miss today’s episode!
