Because of MONAT, our lives are drastically different. Instead of just scraping by each month, I am able to pay our bills without worry. I now do things for my daughter that I only dreamed of doing before, and I was able to resign from my teaching career! students.

When I was first approached about MONAT from a friend, I was very skeptical and had no desire to be a part of a direct sales company. After all, my life was very busy with being a single mom, running a household, and my full-time job as a fourth grade teacher. When my friend assured me there was a 30-day money back guarantee, I decided to sign on as a Market Partner with full intention of sending the products back.  I honestly didn’t believe that anything could help my extremely damaged hair.

After using the products the first time, I fell in love! I noticed a difference immediately!  Although I loved the products, I didn’t have confidence in myself that I could actually build a business. Being from a very small town and only having a handful of close friends, I decided to use the products and do nothing with the business.

After months of watching my upline become successful with MONAT and talking to many people wondering what I was doing differently with my own hair, I decided to jump in and work the business. The month I started working, I matched my teaching salary! I could not believe it! After going to college for nearly four years to become an educator, I matched that income in one month! I started thinking it didn’t matter how many extra hours I put in as a teacher or how in-depth my lesson plans were, my paycheck would never reflect my efforts. I loved that my MONAT check reflected how much effort I put into my business! Four months later, I became a Founder in this amazing company. And just seven months after I started working the business, I was able to resign as a teacher! I had always prayed that God would give me something to help me supplement my income, but I had no idea that he would give me something that would completely replace it!

MONAT has done so much for us. I still get teary eyed when I talk about how it has changed my life and my daughter’s. I have been able to do things that never would have been possible before MONAT, such as pay off my daughter’s braces and the rest of my debt, a trip to the Caribbean, and something as simple as taking my daughter shopping for school clothes instead of using hand-me-downs. Before MONAT, bills were something I dreaded each month but not anymore. MONAT allows me to set my own schedule and attend all of my daughter’s activities. This company has transformed so many of my friend’s lives. Not only has MONAT given me lifelong friendships, confidence in myself, and financial stability, but it has also taught me to DREAM BIGGER, and every day I thank God for this amazing opportunity!

Since graduating college I worked different jobs, from Sales Associate to Administration. Three years ago I jumped off a fifty foot cliff. When I hit the water I broke bones and caused a lot of damage to my muscles and nerves. As hard as it was for me, I had to stop working altogether.

I lost so many of my core needs and values in my life including financial freedom, independence. Most importantly, I lost my passion. I am a real go- getter, a lover of life and that was lost in my pain and my inability to find a career I could work around my life.
Today, I have that career and I could not be more grateful to my friend Sandra Macleod who offered me the MONAT opportunity. I stand behind these incredible products and am so proud to be part of this company. I have so much love and support, incredible mentors who teach me how to be a better leader and a team that inspires me every single day. Today I get to be part of changing people’s lives in the most positive ways, whether they are customers or team members.

Three months ago I was blessed to marry the love of my life who is also an entrepreneur and who has found his own passion and is living his dreams. It is so special to me that we can support each other’s dreams, go on adventures together and take our businesses with us wherever our adventures take us. We are two people who aren’t afraid to Dream Big who have been lucky enough to find each other in this world.

With my second paycheque I built a yoga/meditation room where I go half an hour to an hour every day to work on my personal development. The gifts that I have received because of this are priceless. I am no longer a victim of pain. I am a victor of life. Thank you MONAT for giving me the platform to live an incredible life and a passionate career.

Namaste

For as long as I can remember I was going to be a teacher, so I did the time and got my degree. Then life happened… following my graduation I moved to Alberta, married my husband and started my family.

Fast forward ten years. My family grew and I am lucky to have three busy, young boys (7, 5 and 1). During that time I was fortunate enough to be able to stay at home and watch them grow. In my mind this is my perfect life!
Being a part of an Oilfield family, the crash in oil hit all of us pretty hard; finances were becoming increasingly tight and the word “recession” made it look like I needed to leave my 6-month-old and go to work. I wasn’t ready but had zero choice… until New Year’s Eve, when MONAT literally fell into my diaper bag!
An amazing friend introduced me to MONAT and at first I resisted for many reasons. A few months into her business, she asked for a simple favor: just try the product and snap a quick before-and-after photo. I tried it and I instantly knew this was the real thing—my hair was amazing and I needed to share this product.
dana-kautz-_real_people_collage_01
Initially, I had no idea that MONAT would be my solution to not having to leave my third and final baby at home, but I knew at that moment, this was my chance to help, just a little, to take some financial stress off of my husband. So I jumped with both feet and went for it!
The financial benefits have been unbelievable and now I can choose to return to work when and IF I want to. It’s also provided us the financial freedom to cover fees for our boys to participate in their sports, camps, and many other family extras that just wouldn’t be possible without MONAT.

As amazing as the financial side has been for our family, MONAT has allowed me to find a side of myself that I didn’t realize I was missing. I am regaining my confidence, self-assurance and independence. This business is helping me find balance in my life and continues to make me grow as a person. I’m honored to be connected to a group of such strong and inspiring women and have the privilege of becoming a leader to help others grow both personally and professionally!

One day I will be a teacher, but for now I love being a mom, teaching my boys and helping others fulfill their perfect life! I am grateful that one small sample in my diaper bag has been such a life changer for our family and now this momma is dreaming big (with amazing hair)!

Because of MONAT I am a better mom, a better wife and friend. I have been taught so much about personal development through this journey. I don't consider MONAT my job—it's my lifestyle. I'm so blessed to be on this journey!

My husband and I have a blended family of nine–eight boys and one girl. Their ages range from 9-24 and they are behind every decision I make. I have to say that when I found MONAT, I just knew this was going to be a life-changer for us. It’s something I can pass down to my children, and something we can build together!

Before MONAT, my hair was just breaking off, dry, and frizzy. I never had good hair days unless I had my stylist do it for me. Now....I have a good hair day every day, my hair has never felt so amazing, or been so manageable! It's soft, it's growing like crazy, and is no longer a frizzy mess!

Also before MONAT, I would never have felt comfortable booking a trip to Vegas at the drop of a pin with our friends. Just this week my husband and I booked a spur-of-the-moment getaway with our friends for a few days in Vegas and we won't have to be stressed about the financial part of booking! 

misty-dettling-_real_people_collage_02

Because of MONAT I am able to attend the basketball, football, rodeo and school events that are so important to my kids. I get to be their biggest fan in the stands and cheer them on while also having the opportunity to work my business from wherever we are! I'm one lucky momma!!

Sarah Matheson

sarah-matheson-_profile_people

My name is Sarah Matheson. I can proudly say I reached Market Mentor in June 2016. I am a busy mother of three. My first son is nine, my second son is six, and my daughter is three. My boys play hockey and my daughter will be going into more structured activities as she grows older. I am a teacher from Ohio, and all of my family lives there. My husband and I live in Nova Scotia. He is from Canada. After having three children, I was realizing that life is very expensive.

Before MONAT, I was wondering how I was going to be able to pay for my children's university education, their extra-curricular activities, vacations, trips back and forth to Ohio, and everyday life expenses, even though my husband and I were working full time. It just didn't seem fair that we were working so hard and couldn't seem to get ahead.
sarah-matheson-_real_people_collage_03
I turned 40 in March 2015, and I finally had come to terms that my hair just wasn't going to bounce back to what I wanted it to look like with the current hair care products and regimen that I was using at the time. My hair was dry, full of static, appeared to stop growing, and was breaking. I had to face the facts, I was aging and so was my hair.
sarah-matheson-_real_people_collage_01

In November 2015, I joined as a MONAT Market Partner with one of my best friends, Amy Murphy, because I trusted her. I hadn't even sampled the product. I just signed up as a Market Partner because I trusted her judgement along with the 30% discount. I knew she wouldn't stand behind a company and its products unless she believed in it. I also knew it was a great financial opportunity.

I fell in love with MONAT after my first sample. I then purchased all of the products over time and haven't used anything else since.

sarah-matheson-_real_people_collage_02

I started working my MONAT business in April 2016. I purchased products for beauty baskets, had coffee dates with potentials, and had shampoo parties. My team grew and I was able to answer questions from my team members. I was teaching!

Over time, my team grew and I was gaining a higher sense of self-confidence, self-worth, and financial independence. I can see getting ahead financially with this company and being able to afford my dreams. Throughout this journey, I have to say that I am so thankful to my team members, friends, and family who have supported me throughout my journey with MONAT. I look forward to seeing what my future holds with the company.

Like I stated before, I am a teacher. It occurred to me that as a Market Partner, I could take charge of the opportunity that MONAT could provide for me, by promoting my business as a Market Partner and teaching fellow Market Partners. I was finding it so easy because I was teaching them and fellow customers about something that I believed and loved! I was product of the product because I had tried all of them.

Can a change of season Change Your Hair?

“The most remarkable discovery in all of astronomy is that the stars are made of atoms of the same kind as those on the earth.” - American physicist Richard Feynman (1918-1988)

For millennia, humans have studied and recorded the universe’s astronomic phenomena and their actual impact on our lives. Scientists agree that solstices, equinoxes, the cycles of the moon, and other celestial events affect the earth and the tides, while spiritual gurus take it further to show how these changes in the heavens affect our bodies, our emotions, our relationships, and even our business plans.

“As above, so below.” – Hermeticism, ancient Greek esoteric wisdom

Whether or not we choose to believe in these influences, chances are that if someone suggests that trimming our hair during a certain astronomic event will help it grow faster and stronger, we might just give it a shot!

The First Day of Fall

An equinox occurs twice a year, in March and in September, marking the beginning of spring and the beginning of fall, respectively. In both cases, day and night are almost of equal duration all over the planet, hence the Latin root of the word: “equi” (equal) and “nox” (night).

As with all events that do not happen every day, today’s is pretty special; the Northern Hemisphere is moving into autumn, while the Southern Hemisphere is emerging from winter into spring. In other words, the seasons are literally changing across our planet today!

What’s it to… your hair?

It depends on what approach you take:

Scientific / Spiritual - This time is geared toward retaining nutrients and storing energy; the blood gets slightly thinner and moves faster, therefore speeding the elimination of toxins. Trimming your hair during this time can be part of that detox process, helping it grow faster, stronger and thicker.

Emotional – Going through a breakup, feeling the need to let go of “baggage”, wanting to change an inner aspect of yourself, looking to call someone’s attention? Cutting your hair can be a cathartic experience and can give you a jump start to new beginnings.

Physical – Changing your look can be the best remedy for boredom. Exploring with a new hairstyle is not a mere superficial resolution, it’s an expression of our identity and can help break the monotony of everyday life!

Whatever resonates with each of us, we can all agree that any day is a good day to give our hair some MONAT TLC! Choose the perfect MONAT product or treatment system for you HERE.

My name is Aleah Powell, and I’m from Rockwall, Texas. As many southern women say, “The higher the hair, the closer to God.” With that being said, I have processed, blow dried, and overused heat on my hair since I was a teenager!

I was always blessed with strong, long hair until having my three girls and a surgical procedure. Soon my hair was falling out like crazy and seriously breaking. I decided to try hair extensions. Let's just say that was a disaster for my hair. By this time I'm trying every product advertised for growth, strength and healthy hair. Like many people I had no results and was frustrated!
aleah-powell_real_people_collage_02
When my friend Lisa Goucher asked me to sign up as a MONAT Market Partner, I was ALL IN only because I wanted to try the product! Even with my first wash I could really feel a difference and now my hair is unbelievably healthy!
I guess you can say I'm not the usual suspect to take on the opportunity because I stay at home with my three girls, and my husband makes us a good living, but essentially all I started doing is showing my before and after pics of my thinning areas. My Facebook friends were blown away because they could see it was me and I will tell you I followed up on every comment and the majority of those friends now use MONAT!
aleah-powell_real_people_collage_01

It is important to share your testimony and bless others with this amazing product! I am able to use the money I'm making to save for special things my family would not normally buy. It's been a wonderful journey that I know will continue into bigger and better things—not only for my family but many others!

Last year, after being away from my profession as a high school math teacher for five years to care for my two beautiful children, I toyed with the idea of going back to work full time. Little did I know that life was getting ready to throw me a curveball!

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September, just three months after my mother had been diagnosed with the same ailment. Let’s just say this experience changed my life and going back to work was the last thing on my mind. My family and friends were my constant and unbelievable support. They got me through the rough times and I came out tougher, stronger and much more knowledgeable than I ever was before. From nutrition to cosmetics, I began to closely question every single product that came in contact with me and my family. And that is where MONAT fell into my lap.
toni-lipari-_real_people_collage_01

As I started discovering healthier food options, I found it much more difficult to come across healthier beauty care products. I tried several different organic shampoos that left my hair feeling sticky and gross and then one day—voila!—one of my friends sent me a MONAT sample and I fell in love! I bothered her about all the ingredients, I looked up every single one to make sure they were safe and once I was satisfied with my findings, I decided to sign up to be a Market Partner.

toni-lipari-_real_people_collage_02

I made it a mission to help my friends, family—anyone I could talk to—chose healthier options. To me, working for MONAT doesn’t seem like a job at all. I truly feel like MONAT cares about their ingredients, which in turn means they care about the well-being of their customers. It is easy for me to recommend MONAT products to the people I care about because it brings me joy to know that I am helping people get rid of toxic chemicals that can eventually cause chronic diseases, like breast cancer.

MONAT has given my family the gift of me being able to stay at home with my children, while providing us with an additional source of income. As an added bonus, I am helping people find amazing haircare products that they can feel good about using. For this, I am forever grateful.

Aging Hair: Stop it in its tracks!

In celebration of Healthy Aging Month we’re here to dish out the dirt on how to help hair stay “forever young.” .

Is your hair thinning? More strands in your comb? Grey hairs started to peek through? These are just some of the signs of aging hair, a reality many men and women are sad to report they’re experiencing.

Good for you these changes can be treated – it just involves changing your daily hair care routine to one that’s more, let’s say, MONATious. ;)

Change in color

That first white strand is a tell-tale sign of aging hair. Hair goes gray when cells stop producing pigment, which is normal and happens naturally with age. While there is no cure for this at the moment, there are treatments you can do to alter the color of your strands temporarily, like dying it with hair dye, or for some, henna.. But there’s nothing wrong with going gray. Take these celebrities for example. Some of them actually love embracing their grey hair. After all, it is a hair color trend for fall!

color-aginghair

Change in hair thickness

In case you didn’t know it’s perfectly normal to lose about 100 hairs per day, no matter your age. Hormonal changes in women can affect hair growth patterns as well. It’s not uncommon for menopausal women to experience hair thinning and hair loss. For example, they may notice less hair on their legs but more hair on their upper lip or chin (yikes! I know).

If you’re dealing with thinning hair, or just want naturally luscious and long locks, use MONAT. MONAT products are naturally based, age-prevention hair care products that help with the natural regrowth of hair. MONAT products help hair thrive by using premium, healthy ingredients. Learn more about the ingredients found in MONAT products, here.

For optimal hair growth and strength, we highly recommend taking S3 by MONAT, a supplement support system that has ultimately raised the bar in hair nutrition. You see, each of the clinically proven ingredients found in S3 work together synergistically to replenish the system of possible nutrient deficiencies that could be contributing to hair loss. S3 provides a holistic hair regrowth treatment that works to promote enhanced hair growth from the inside out.
