Hey! Hi! I’m imagined to be r e l a x i n g (based on each Beautycounter and my husband) however I wished to pop in shortly and say hello from Ojai! This resort is GORGEOUS!
My journey day on Sunday went nicely however was SO LONG. I used to be awake for nearly 24 hours. My mind was so tremendous charged from pleasure and new pals and dreaming up concepts that I simply couldn’t nap (regardless of three totally different makes an attempt). When I lastly went to sleep, I awoke at 4am on Monday morning prepared to start out the day! Oh the irony of getting a resort room to myself and never getting good sleep. I’m nonetheless having a beautiful time although!
I’m right here with my finest woman, Teri!
We’ve been chatting every day since reconnecting in April, and she or he has been such a beautiful mentor and good friend.
I shared this on Instagram and wished to share it right here as nicely. I do know it’s tacky when individuals get all “this changed my life” speaking about one thing like being a skincare marketing consultant, however actually all the pieces about this expertise has been SUCH a nice shock. You simply don’t know what it’s going to be like till you do it.
Seven months in the past, I used to be a brand new mother with little time for brand spanking new tasks however an itch for one thing new. I had stated no to totally different individuals who emailed me about Beautycounter no less than 25 occasions. I had no qualms in regards to the firm or merchandise – I simply felt I already had an excessive amount of on my plate.
But then in the future I obtained a message from Teri of A Foodie Stays Fit who I knew from method again within the early running a blog days. She advised me all of the issues that I wanted to listen to: That you don’t HAVE to do something you don’t need, that it’s not about promoting it’s about sharing, and the way she has constructed her enterprise serving to individuals discover options.
So why did I say sure? I made a decision to hitch this mission to create a further income stream for our family. I wish to proceed to have the ability to do business from home and care for Mazen and Birch. The extra various my earnings streams are, the extra stability I’ve for the long run.
Beautycounter is now my favourite leg of my total on-line enterprise to work on. I might not have predicted how a lot this self-employed entrepreneur would admire feeling linked to an enormous firm (a B Corp, I would add.) My day-to-day job as each a blogger and a mama might be fairly lonesome, and the Zoom calls, group conferences, e-mail updates, new product bulletins, webinars, and every day Voxer chat with different consultants is all very stimulating. It’s the proper mix of getting the perks of a big firm and dealing at dwelling, whenever you wish to.
I’ve Teri to thank for talking my language and getting me over the hurdle of attempting one thing new. I’m SO GLAD I did as a result of Beautycounter has already added a lot to my life.
