Yolanda Farmer. Q. Tell us a little about yourself and family life.
A. I am a proud wife of 26 years, a mother of two young men, and a happy Grandmother. My husband Greg and I have pastored a church for 10 years and I am a full-time Systems Analyst.
Q. You joined in May of 2016. In this short time, you have experienced great success as a Bra Lady. What do you attribute to that?
A. After contemplating what I should do, I realized selling something that I believed in would be best. I have loved my bras for almost three years so instead of sending friends to my Bra Lady, I thought, ‘Why not become the Bra Lady, myself!’
Q. What has EBW meant to you?
A. Since I have started my own business through EBW I have realized I really enjoy doing this. The satisfaction that I get when I see the smile on the faces of other women is unexplainable. Showing women that a bra can literally change the way they see themselves has been a great reward.
Q. What is the one piece of advice you would give to a Rep who is just starting out with Essential Bodywear?
A. I have only been in the business for nine months but I would tell any other new rep to listen to all the tips provided by the veteran reps. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and always share your story. Most women love to hear the truth and you don’t have to think of yourself as a sales person, think of yourself as a friend who is sharing your knowledge of a great deal.
Q. You recently attended your first EBW conference. What was that like for you to experience?
A. I just attended my first EBW conference and it was wonderful! I felt like a part of a great group of women who love what they do. Women shared ideas, tips, and longevity secrets. I met women who have been Bra Ladies for ten years and more. That was proof to me that Essential Bodywear takes good care of their direct sales representatives.
Q. What have you gained from working with EBW?
A. Since I joined the EBW team, I have met some great people within the company and women that have become my customers. It is a great feeling that I can pick-up the phone and call women all across the country because we share the same passion – to literally lift other women!!
Q. What is one of your favorite quotes you live by?
A. One of my favorite quotes is a scripture, ‘I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.’
