Zija’s Empowering Opportunity Creates Unstoppable Women Leaders

Zija International, Christen Goldsby

In a skewed job market where 52% of jobs are held by women but only 8.1% are top earners and only 14% are in leadership positions, women are looking for ways to dedicate the time needed to become business leaders and balance family matters.

However, for over a decade, Zija International has been encouraging women to take advantage of their simple, business-building opportunity and to achieve their leadership goals.

The company has empowered women to start their own businesses, take on leadership roles, and drive their teams to become money-making success stories; all while maintaining a positive work-life balance. One group of women out of Mississippi has grown a hugely successful team of 2000+ members—made up of 98% women.

“My experience in climbing the ranks in corporate America was not easy because I was a woman, I had to work twice as hard for half the pay, but I did it anyway,”

Christen Goldsby, the team’s leader, says. “To be able to have the opportunity to teach other women how to not only supplement their income, but also replace their incomes and come home to their families is the real reward.”

Christen’s goal is to empower others like Zija has empowered her—to lead again and to inspire others to become part of something so much bigger than themselves. She says, “

Zija lets you be you, they embrace everyone’s differences and allow you to run your business as true business owners.”

Zija’s dedication to building a beneficial compensation plan and easy-to-replicate business model was one of the major factors that has excelled the quick expansion of this team. Another team leader, Lakyn Bynum, says,

“Not only was the business plan great, but the support and recognition we got and continue to get from our Upline and Zija corporate is unbelievable. They truly care so much!”

Erin Byram recognizes the dedication and hard work that comes from being a business builder, but finds it motivates her to grow and become the leader she has strived to be.

“I went from being a stay-at-home wife to making more than my husband, and trust me, there were times I wanted to pull my hair out and give up. But then I had to step back and look at what Zija has done for my family and it made me push harder.”

For some team members, Zija has been an opportunity to live the company’s mantra of Life Unlimited.

Lacey Reed says,

“Zija has changed my life. The opportunity and people have been such a blessing to me and my family. I’m so proud to be a part of such a great thing.”

The business opportunity provides a chance for people to become leaders and have supplemental income, but also take advantage of the benefits Zija’s products can provide.

Christen Harvison says, “Through this company, I have found myself again. I enjoy my life and kids, I’ve lost 22 pounds, I have financial freedom, I have my health back, and I have my life back. There is no limit to what I can accomplish with Zija—the company truly empowers you. If you can think it, you can do it with Zija. I want everyone to feel what I’ve been feeling because of this company.”

Christen Goldsby’s leadership skills are influential, but her product testimony is equally powerful and a large portion of why she has one of the fastest-growing teams in the industry. “While some say Zija’s products have changed their life, I believe these products and this company has saved my life. Not only are the products amazing, but my husband and I are now able to both work from home and truly live Life Unlimited.”
