Dara Ekster Earns Elite Status As A PMB Affiliate
It gives us great pleasure to announce that PMB Affiliate leader Dara Ekster has earned elite status in the affiliate marketing industry. As of July 20th, Dara—who has worked solely with PrimeMyBody over the course of her affiliate marketing career—is now a seven-figure income earner.
A woman who always leads with her heart and cares deeply about all of her team members and their success, Dara has been and continues to be an inspirational PrimeMyBody team leader and Affiliate role model. Brand new to affiliate marketing when she enrolled as a PrimeMyBody Affiliate in January 2017, Dara’s early health and wealth transformation motivated her to achieve all of the success she’s earned over the past 4 ½ years.
During a whirlwind of recent national and international travel, Dara sat down with us to discuss her success and the gratitude she has for her team and the entire PrimeMyBody community.
PMB: What does it feel like to be a seven-figure income earner in the industry?
Dara: Surreal. If you had told me five years ago that this is where I’d be right now, I would’ve never believed you. It feels surreal and also very exciting because I know if I can do this anyone who is driven and motivated can too.
PMB: Looking back at your first month with PrimeMyBody, did you ever imagine you would come this far as an Affiliate?
Dara: You know, I said no to enrolling to Dr. Erin Pollinger for over two months. But when I started I said to her I am buckling my seatbelt and this is going to take off like a rocket ship. I did have an intention of really doing something with this, but at that time I did not imagine becoming a seven-figure earner.
PMB: What’s the secret to your success?
Dara: I would say caring deeply about people and really getting to know their why and their goals and dreams and always holding their vision in the forefront and helping them to achieve those goals.
PMB: You’ve always been such a humble Affiliate, crediting much of your success to the help of your Affiliate team members and the PMB Affiliate and Corporate leaders. How have they helped you along the way?
Dara: For me, it’s not about what I’ve done. It’s the fact that my team has always shown up and built a huge organization and that we’ve always been supported by corporate every step of the way. I know I’ve worked hard and travelled a lot and made amazing connections, but I wouldn’t not be where I am without my team and my leaders and all the leaders in the organization who have really stepped up to partner together.
I have to give a huge shout out to a lot of people for my early and long-term success, because without them none of this would’ve been possible. Annette Gano has been my running partner since the beginning. She’s been my biggest builder and such a help to me. I honestly didn’t know what I was doing as an Affiliate Marketer early on and Annette really guided and taught me so much. And of course Erin Pollinger was instrumental in helping to build my team those first few months. A key to my success was being on every call with Erin until I was ready to start leading calls on my own.
I want to acknowledge all of my team, and the Affiliate and Corporate leaders, like Paul Rogers, Jonas Crafts, Imani Mamalution, John Taylor, and Kevin Suber, who have supported me since this journey began and have poured their energy and passion into making PrimeMyBody such a special company.
PMB: You said in 2016, when Dr. Erin Pollinger introduced you to PMB, that your initial reaction was that you weren’t ready. What prompted you to jump in as an Affiliate and how happy are you that you did?
Dara: Hearing about how much the products were going to help my health that was suffering so much at the time played a key role in getting me started. Once I got that yes and saw what was happening for Erin financially, I made the decision it was going to work that way for me too.
PMB: In addition to the financial health you’ve earned at PMB, in what other areas has PMB helped your overall quality of life and well-being?
Dara: Oh my god! Before there was ONE80, PMB gave me my own personal one-eighty. I was so sick, struggling and so stuck when I started with PrimeMyBody. It really was a different lifetime ago. With the community, connections, and friendships, this company has become family to me, my favorite family.
PMB: With the success you’ve achieved, how do you remain motivated and driven going forward?
Dara: I just can’t wait to get everyone on my team and as many people in the company that want it to the same place I am. That may sound simple, but that’s what drives me now.
