Sometimes the hardest thing for me to do is find a title. Putting words on paper isn't too bad, but finding a fleeting thought or a moment to share and what to call it, now that can be a real pain in the ass.
I own and run two businesses.
Two very different businesses.
One is Direct Sales and I love it. It connects me to a world of endless possibility and to a network of some of the most amazing people I have ever known. We lift each other up. We support. We share. Of course we also coach, mentor, sell, and bring people into the fold. It is so much more than I ever thought it would or could be, not to mention how awesome the product, the company, and the pay also are. Who knew I would be selling skincare, but here I am and I adore what I do with Rodan + Fields!
My other business is this hippie stuff.
I also love my hippie stuff. This is a company that was born from a passion, from a dream, from wanting to make and leave the world a better place. While the company as an LLC has been in existence for about a year now, I really only got around to making a real go of it about June of last year.
Our first partial year was amazing. Thank you!
Through the bad hippies we have found a completely different tribe. One of people that are looking for something more natural, something a little cleaner for them and the earth. People that maybe need something with less crap in it. People that care about the fishies and what the water going down the drain does once it leaves the house.
Is it easy? Sometimes, because I really do love what I do and the hearing stories from people that have found relief from our products.
It can also be a challenge. When people place orders and you don't have any on hand, guess what? You gotta make it.
You learn about websites, and photography, and marketing, and SEO optimization, and logos, and packaging, and repackaging and everything else.
But what I have found is freedom.
You can find it too.
What is your passion? What do you keep going back to? What makes your heart sing?
Is it scary? Hell yes.
But is it worth it? Ask me tomorrow when you have to fight traffic on the way to working for someone else.
You can & you should.
Today I celebrate life. I celebrate being present. I celebrate love. I celebrate me. I celebrate all of you.
If you don't know where to start or want to know about what I do. Just ask. I love talking about my jobs.
Today is one year since we lost mom and life is too damn short to feel stuck and to hate where you are.
I will leave you with this quote because it is crazy powerful and it applies to all aspects of our lives......let it sink in.
