Earlier this year I wrote about opening my very own women’s clothing boutique. After several months of no sales and continuing to spend money on advertising, I decided to close my boutique. I realized that running a clothing boutique in the middle of a pandemic was probably not the smartest thing to do. I admittedly did not know we would still be in a pandemic after 8 months.
During the last 8 months due to my immunocompromised status, I have not been in a store, a restaurant, gone to church, or seen friends and family. It has been a long 8 months and I fear that it is not going to end at any point soon. The lack of care for others has been heartbreaking to watch. I look at the number of people who refuse to wear a mask, refuse to socially distance and I know it means that I will be in this “prison” of mine for a long time.
So, I have had to come up with something to do with my time. I have had to figure out what is right for me. I will have an announcement soon about my ultimate path, but in the meantime I have found some things that keep me busy. I have become one of those direct sellers people hate on Facebook. I know how people feel about all the social media sellers. But, I have thought about how I want to do my businesses. I am going to stop being the one that always posts sales on my FB feed. I am going to stop being the one that invites people to every page and every group. This is how I am going to be a different direct seller.
I am going to be a direct seller by showing the products I use. Talking about how they are changing my life, why I use them. I am going to be honest. If something doesn’t work for me, I am going to tell it. I am going to be speaking the truth. I don’t want to sell something that is not right for me. So what companies am I going to be selling?
- pawTree – I am a pet owner. As I have gone through a change in my life to make myself healthy, I needed to make sure my pets were healthy as well. No more am I going to buy food that has a chance in getting recalled. No more am I going to be spending money on products I don’t know what is in it and I can’t pronounce. I am 100% going to be making my pets thrive. The best way to do that is to have my dogs on pawTree. My dogs have been on pawTree for awhile. When I say they are thriving is an understatement. I am going to be showing that and not selling products.
- Java Momma – As I have begun to change my life, I stopped the soda for the most part. Due to stress it has come back a little. But, as I lost my caffeine from soda I replaced it with the best source of caffeine on earth – COFFEE! As I tried different brands, there were many that I could just not stomach. I did not like the taste because it was too bitter and quite honestly, nasty. But, then I found heaven in a cup with Java Momma. It truly is the best coffee I have ever tasted. I sell my coffee because I want to feed my addiction to be honest. LOL I love being able to talk about the flavors in my coffees. Have I told you I am addicted to coffee?
- dōTERRA – As I have been getting healthier, I have wanted to take my health to a new level. I want to get out of using toxic products in my house. I wanted to use healthier options in every aspect of my life. So, I am using essential oils. I am going to be talking about how I use my essential oils in my life. I am going to be talking about the steps I took to get to this point. I am going to be talking about how I got to the point of using oils in cooking, cleaning, improving my health, etc.
I love the companies that I use. Am I going to use high pressure sales? Heavens no! I don’t like that. So, I am not going to do that. So please don’t think you have to run from my blog. But, my blog is about my weight loss journey. All of these things are part of that journey. So, not speaking about them will actually be only giving you a partial view of my journey – and I don’t think that is fair, do you?
So, I hope that you are still with me and you haven’t given up on my blog. I am hoping that you will understand why I am going to start including this in my blog. I am also going to be including some other aspects of my life that are helping my journey in the next few days. So, hang out with me and see how much my life has changed since I started my WW journey in 2019.
