What Comes After the, But…

It’s taken me 11 days to come full circle and be capable of putting my thoughts into words, in hindsight it’s best that I wasn’t able to form sentences on paper in the moment as usual because emotions tend to get the best of me and I come across as either a raging angry psychopath or a blubbering therapy seeking mess. So here is my therapy, putting the words and feelings onto paper that I could never say out loud all of the doubts, the aching and pain, all of the incredible endless joy, every moment I want to remember and even the ones in between that I don’t like to say out loud, all of it. You see [...]


Very Best…

Did you ever watch that movie Facing the Giants, more specifically the scene with the death crawl. The coach in the movie demands their “very best” More than average and more than the norm. I played the video for my daughter a few weeks ago prior to a soccer game and since she understands the reference now I use those words before every game. Do your best becomes something we say like “Hi, how are you?” or “I’m good” Mindless greetings or sentiments that lose their power over time. The butterflies and heartbeat fades on all things without thought, without work and attention. So I wonder... When it comes to our day to day what different lives we’d lead [...]

So You Want to Work From Home?

If you’ve seen it 10 you’ve seen it 100 times...“Join My Team!” “Sell What I Sell.” “Do What I Do!” “Work from Home.” “Do what you love” “Opportunity is knocking.” “join” “Be your own boss.” “Make your own hours.”The list goes on and on, years ago if you had asked me about direct sales I wouldn’t have had an opinion because I had no experience. Fast forward a dozen years, 10 with my current company, I have a firm and strong opinion on this topic. In case you were wondering I’m about to share it with you!Direct sales companies as a whole are not created equally!I will never bash another company but from experience there are a few cautions I’d [...]

Fall Fragrance at its Finest!

There’s nothing quite like the crunch of leaves under foot or the first breath of brisk air in the morning when fall hits. Frost on the roof tops and sweater weather, boots and beanies, ooooh fall is my fave! Insert record screech here!!! ______________ Because I live in Texas, current temperature 82 degrees. There is no changing of leaves until maybe December or January and there is no frost on the roof tops unless it's followed by an epic ice storm in which I’ve yet to encounter. Being from the Mid West, Colorado more specifically I am accustomed to a definite fall. The one where I wear long sleeves in the morning and have to shed a layer by late [...]
