Owning a Business Can Change You
For better or worse….My personal business has changed me, therefore #IamThankful!
I began on a journey in January of 2013 with the decision to start my own business with a multi-level-marketing company. I loved the skincare products and knew I could share information about them with others, so I figured it was a winning idea. Why not get compensated to share with others about what I am using on my skin? At the time I began, my son was only about 6 months old, and I knew I wanted to continue to stay home with him and my older daughter. Starting a business would allow me to feel like I was contributing to our family and still raising my babies! I knew this would be great fit for me.
I have built a client base over the past two years with clients that continue to enjoy the products and purchase them on a regular basis. I do love that this is a residual income for our family and I certainly appreciate my clients. They are an awesome group of women and men that are using dermatologist created skincare regimens to fight the signs of aging, reverse sun damage, unblemish acne prone skin or soothe sensitive skin. I myself, being a former science teacher love that I am still able to ‘teach’ others about how to care for and protect their skin. I am also proud to offer them products that are award winning and guaranteed to do what they say they will do!
In 2014, I have stepped out in new and different ways. I would have never embarked upon anything in the journey of 2014 without encouragement from other women in business. As I enrolled in a social media mentorship program with Portia Chandler, I never realized how my path would twist and turn or how much I would be stretched to learn. This mentorship program has been a gift. It has encouraged me to try new things, step up as a leader, step out of my comfort zone, be creative and just embrace life! I am still learning, growing, and changing as a person and as a business owner. I am determined to never stop until I have my ultimate goal accomplished. Many things are vehicles that drive you along the road in life and I intend to keep going until I reach mine!
