FIRSTLY, WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DO YOU DO?
My name is Brittany Hughes and I run my own business as a Kangen Water distributor. I help individuals who are looking to prioritise their health and financial well-being.
PLEASE SHARE YOUR JOURNEY TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY.
I did all the "right" things. I went to high school, went to University, graduated after 4 years, did some traveling, got a job at a PR Firm and worked as a cocktail server at night and it all just didn't feel right. Although I couldn't quite put my finger on it, I knew I was meant to do something more. If you look back at my journals, it's funny yet kind of sad. I so badly knew I wanted change, I just didn't know what that looked like or where to start. When this opportunity came into my life, I don't know what else to call it, but I had an epiphany. I just knew that this was what I was meant to be doing and that I had to take full advantage of it. It's something I'm still trying to figure out, how did I know that this was it? But ever since then I've been all in.
WHAT IS YOUR WHY? (WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?)
I do what I do because I know the life I'm destined to live and it all comes back to freedom. Every. Single. Time. I know personally, I didn't decide to come into this time space reality to slave my life away at a job for 40 years, where I'm undervalued and not compensated appropriately. I'm here to expand, love, explore, experience, and live out my day to day exactly how I want to. So that's what I'm doing and man, does it feel right.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?
This will be changing quite a bit since I'm currently transitioning from juggling a full time 9-5 job and my business. But! What my day's will look like, one week from now. is something like this; Wake up, meditate, read some pages out of my current book - right now it's Ask & It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks (HIGHLY recommend), gratitude journal, read my intentions, go for a workout, and then get into my work day. I try my best to not check social or messages until after my morning routine but that's not always the case. I spend most of my day's creating content, corresponding with individuals who are looking to start their own business, and mentoring my current team. In the afternoon, I may go for a second workout, or make a trip to the beach, or grab dinner with a friend. But again, things are always changing, there's no typical day (haha!) and thank goodness there's not!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ONLINE MARKETING?
It was a no brainer in the beginning. I was working two other jobs and I didn't have the time or desire for anything else. Working online would allow me to make money without having to clock in and out. Now that i'm in a different position and I no longer have to clock in for any work, it's still a no brainer. By maximising the internet, I'm able to work from wherever my heart desires, I have the opportunity to reach and connect with more people, and have a greater impact.
IF YOU HAD ONE PIECE OF ADVICE TO GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO WAS INTERESTED IN STARTING UP, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Just start. Start scared, start not ready, start confused, start with uncertainty, but start. You will never know if something has the potential to change your life, if you never give it the chance.
WHAT HAS ONLINE MARKETING ALLOWED YOU TO DO?
Using the power of the internet, I have been able to share Kangen water and this incredible business opportunity with others, and reach and connect with people that I otherwise would have never had the opportunity to connect with. It has allowed me to quit a 9-5 job that was no longer serving me and find a business that aligns and helps support me in achieving what I want out of life.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE ADVERSITY AND DOUBT?
In situations like this, I like to think big picture and ask myself, "Do these thoughts help or hinder me from my final destination." If the answer is help, then i'll allow for it to flow to me and through me. If the answer is hinder, I try my best to replace the self doubt with a better feeling thought. It doesn't have to be related to the doubt, it could be any subject really. Just removing myself from the negative feelings and into a more positive feeling is my main goal. I'm on a serious mission to feel good all the time so I try my best not to welcome doubt.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE THE TOP 3 SKILLS YOU NEED TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL?
If you were to ask me this a year ago I probably would've said something like determination or perseverance. But today, success means something different to me. I would say in order to be "successful" you need a vision and awareness / understanding of the Law of Attraction. If you have those two things, I feel like you're golden. Hold that vision with you at all times and know that whatever energy and effort you're putting out, will come right back to you. It's that simple my friends.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
That it's okay to be different and it's okay to want different things. It's okay to want more for yourself and it's okay to say no to things that don't get you excited.
WHAT WAS THE LAST GIFT YOU GAVE TO SOMEONE?
I love this question. I just bought my partner surprise concert tickets. Surprise gifts are my favourite to give!
IF YOU WERE TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD YOU NAME IT?
Oh, this question! Probably "If Brittany Can Do It, So Can You." Hahaha.
And there you have it. An inspiring soul, who has just quit her 9-5 job in order to follow her passions in expanding, loving, exploring, experiencing, and living out her day to day. Brittany has been able to reach and connect with so many people across the globe by taking full advantage of this online opportunity, which has also allowed her to create the freedom she truly deserves!
