Graphics for Social Media Networks

Do you enjoy communicating with others on social media networks? Have you heard a picture is worth a thousand words? Are you sharing graphics to share more about your philosophy/products/services/specials?

Do you have online parties or events? Do you offer specials daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually? Do you need a quick video to showcase ten to twenty items from a special collection? Do you think a video is better than having someone look at each picture? Click play! This video is from a recent online event I hosted for my business.

Do you participate in live events and want a better way to share your images from the event? Sharing a video of images from the event may make people feel like they should have been there or that they missed out, prompting them to join in next time. Click play to see an example from a breakfast event.

If you are a small business owner NOW is the time to utilize the power of social media networks to share information! Allow me to create graphics or videos for you to share on your networks. It is the time to brand your graphics before sharing them to harness the power of your brand!

#IamThankful for Four Generations

RV Trip with Four Generations

My husband and I decided to buy an RV a little over two years ago. We have taken multiple trips with the kids. We have gone to places to meet friends and vacation together. We have taken it across the country to a business conference as a family. But on my latest RV adventure, I journeyed without my husband. YIKES! I had to learn a few new things about our spiffy mode of transportation, but that was easy enough to do!

Back in September, my grandmother went to visit her brother in South Carolina. My Aunt and Uncle took her there by car and then she flew back. Well, my grandmother wanted to go see family in Georgia around Thanksgiving. She mentioned it and I thought this would be a great opportunity to take her, my mom and my kids. I had not been to see all of the extended family since my daughter was one month old and my Great-Uncle Richard was celebrating his 80th birthday. So there you have it, I told her we should go and so began the story of the Four Generations RV Trip!

We left early on a Monday morning and arrived shortly before midnight. Technically, we got there in one day. We enjoyed the ride by snacking in the RV and stopping a few times for gas along the way. My mom kept my kids entertained with movies in the DVD player and grandma and I chatted in the cockpit of the RV. Once we arrived in Senoia, Georgia, we were greeted by our gracious hosts, the Zabawa family.

We stayed until the following Monday and celebrated an early Thanksgiving with my grandmother’s brothers, sisters-in-law, and all their family members that could make it to Fayetteville, Georgia too.

We had a really great time catching up with everyone, visiting a few places, and discussing quilting (my grandma’s current favorite time filler). If you want to check out the the family fun and see some beautiful sights with our smiling faces in the picture, click play and enjoy!

During November, I have been sharing weekly about things #IamThankful for, but this trip takes the cake. It will forever be a priceless memory for me and my children. Until we make it to Georgia again……

Happy November!

#IamThankful for Family Traditions

Does your family have long-lasting family traditions?

We share in some wonderful family traditions each year that help remind us of all that we have to be thankful for as a family. Celebrating Thanksgiving together as a family with a prayer, dinner, and then a relaxing football game is the way to go! Once we had children, their grandparents wanted to take it one step further and kick off the Christmas season with them the day after Thanksgiving. We now enjoy the tradition of going to Santa’s Wonderland. Don’t know what that is? Take a few minutes, click play, and see the sparkles in our children’s eyes as they watch the lights pass by!

At Santa’s Wonderland, they really know how to help you get into the Christmas spirit! They have a grand venture in College Station, Texas. If you have not been, I would highly recommend it. It may be a little crowded since we have had such beautiful weather this fall, but they really have their business together in an effort to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. Purchasing tickets online will help you save a few dollars and some time in line. Parking – not to worry, get a pass or just park at the Texas World Speedway and take a shuttle bus over to Santa’s Wonderland!

Enjoy Santa’s Town, live music, camp fires, funnel cakes, holiday movie on the big screen, photos with Santa, train ride, petting zoo, Texas Longhorns,  and shopping. Then take a hayride or horse carriage through the lights. You will be glad you did! Have fun and let me know how much you enjoy it!

Happy November!

Business and Personal Growth

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!
