The following is an exclusive blog from ACN COC and SVP Debbie Davis.

For those in the cold...spring is upon us! But no matter where you live, spring means new growth and new beginnings. The freshness of spring will put many in a fresh mindset, as we break out of the mental hibernation shell of a long; hard winter. We're ready to go, eager to experience new changes. Even more than "the new year", SPRING gives people a new energy.

Take advantage of this moment right now with the greatest opportunity on the planet.

Recently there has been much buzz in the news, in Hollywood, at the Oscars, about "women's pay" not being equal to men's in the workplacefor doing the same job that men do. This got me thinking, and after two decades in ACN I realized that THANKFULLY, I was completely out of touch with the "real world", because for a second I didn't even know what they were talking about. It sounded so foreign to me.

University and corporate world education teaches us that there are limits everywhere to what you can achieve and accomplish as a women or a man. There are very few spots at the top of a large corporation where one can truly succeed beyond your wildest dreams simply because of the corporate structure, or "pyramid". You have to scratch and claw your way to the top in a dog-eat-dog world. Ethics are often compromised in order to get where you want to go. If you're not willing to conform to the politics, you won't make it.

Watching Geoff go thru two degrees, the ups and downs of the "rat race", climbing his way up the corporate ladder for 18 years taught us a lot. Traditional small business is often very risky with large capital needed, no track to run on and most fail with huge financial losses with in their first 18 months.

I'm so grateful for my $499 ACN business and the fact that this is the most equal opportunity, you are ever going to find! ACN set forth a plan over 22 years ago where it does not matter what sex you are, what ACN age, color, race or religion you are.They don't even care about your resume, the good things you've done in the past or the mistakes you've made in the past. Everyone has an equal opportunity to create their own future. You get to choose how it turns out. You can set your own pay rate and decide how much you're worth.

Opposite of most jobs, ACN gives you the opportunity to grow into the person you want to become - not the person someone else wants you to become. ACN's new comp plan is unprecedented. All we have to do is work it. Everything is in place. The treasure map is free to all. You just have to be willing to follow it.

I encourage you, I urge you, I challenge you to break those binding mental chains of lack, past failures, limitations and claim your God given freedom! Spring out of your mental hibernation shell. Break free of the doubts, the worries and the fears. ACN is here for you! You only need to share it with others. The more people you free, the more YOU will be free. You've got the KEY to the prison cells. Set them free!

God will bless you on this exciting journey!
