“Since I was a child, I had always felt I wanted to be an entrepreneur but I never found that one thing I was passionate about enough to give it my all. So I did what every good Canadian girl does and got a job in the corporate world. For years I bounced from one mindless job to another making just barely enough to pay the bills.
Then one day I found myself pregnant!
It was never in our “plans” but was a welcomed surprise. Within the first trimester of my pregnancy my company let me go.
I was devastated. Here I was pregnant and jobless.
To add to the devastation, my husband was let go in the same week. Who would hire a pregnant lady? I sold my car to help cut costs and the day after I did this my husband crashed his car and we lost both in a week. Fortunately my luck took a turn and through a friend, I found a job but was making just over minimum wage.
I made a vow to myself and this unborn baby, that I was going to find a business and an industry I could be excited about. Something that gave me the time freedom to be the mom I wanted and the financial rewards so that I didn’t have to worry about whether I’d be downsized or let go.
Well on maternity leave I was approached by a successful family member who I respected and told me about the Usana opportunity. I got really excited about the turn key business opportunity and the products. It was in the Health industry which I love and in the beauty industry which I specialized in as a trained and certified Aesthetician. It also appealed to me because it was a very ethical company and gave back through their foundation. As a child sponsor and advocate for third world countries I knew I could stand behind this company and be proud to be a part of it.
I knew this was the opportunity I needed to never be at the mercy of a company again. I was able to make my own destiny and take care of my family. No one could take that away from me. It was up to me. Usana gave me the ability to be independent and give my new family what they needed – stability and a mother they can look up to.
I have never looked back!
The dream of owning your own business isn’t far fetched.
In fact, it’s more easily attainable than you may think. While the cost and work required to start a business from scratch are staggering, there’s an alternative.
A better option.
USANA USANA is a way to make your business dreams come true, and it can also help you create a better life. We don’t follow a typical business model, though. We’re a direct selling company, which is a unique way of selling products person-to-person, rather than from an expensive, brick-and-mortar retail location.

PRESIDENTIAL DIAMOND LEADER, itWorks!
My name is Barb Houser. I’m a wife, mother of 3, entrepreneur, and believer that we will impact the world! I am so grateful to be able to work from home, and help change people’s lives, health, and financial future!
I’m just curious…..do you love your job?? I have discovered a job I love, that has become a passion!! I was a teacher who wanted to be there for my kids during their childhood, I didn’t want to miss those moments because I was at work. I started running my own home daycare to make an income, but quickly felt like I was losing myself…..I began looking for a way to generate an extra stream of income, and tried several home party companies……what I found was that my expenses were matching my income, and we ended up still having month left at the end of the money.
When my Mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I realized how short life truly is, and that if we don’t have our health, everything else is futile! I was introduced to It Works Greens, and multi-level marketing! I hosted a party and saw others wrap results happen in front of my eyes, and I started researching the products and discovering how incredible they really are! They have made a world of difference for my mom, and her battle against cancer, as well as ourselves, and so many other team members and customers!
The products, and the business opportunity both sound too good to be true, but we have experienced how real it all is!! Now we are on a mission to share these incredible products and opportunity with everyone we can!!
This has changed our life, and now we are excited to help others do the same!
This business has allowed us to become healthier people, pay off debt, give back, etc! We were able to retire my husband Matt a year ago (before the age of 30!), and now we are a full time family with our 2 boys, and 1 year old daughter! Matt and I have earned $110,000 in GOOD (Get Out Of Debt).
BONUSES alone in the 2 years we have been with It Works, and our team has earned almost $1 MILLION!!

My Story: As a child I was always eagerly awaiting the next occasion or celebration, excited to invent a delicious dessert for my family. Now I find myself more knowledgeable and more curious than ever. I can always be found in my kitchen, whipping up something sweet! I’m not sure whether it’s a passion or an obsession; either way baking is what I love to do. I love the idea of bringing a smile to someones face with something I’ve baked, I love the ripple of happiness a sweet treat causes! I am constantly discovering making recipes and new creations, always growing and expanding my knowledge. While a recipe is somewhat important to baking, patience, mindfulness and passion are what makes the true difference!
My business: I’m just a girl with a passion and a knack you could say, for baking. I love all things sweet and tasty, and I love baking them even more! Everything I bake is fresh from scratch using only the finest ingredients. I offer all kinds of cakes, cake pops, cookies, pastries and other types of sweets! I pride myself in moist, flavourful cakes, and rich, sumptuous buttercreams, delicious handmade fondants, and heavenly, delicate cake pops. I always assure the utmost diligence and care in everything I bake. You can taste the difference it makes!
