“You smell good! What am I smelling?” I get that a lot after hugging a friend. My response: “Just breathe. It’s good for you!”
I want to say a great big thank you to all of YOU who have supported my essential oil business over the past 6 1/2 years! Who could have guessed that getting a diffuser and a few oils would have turned out this way?! Happy Small Business Saturday!
In early 2014 I was desperate to find something to relieve my chronic sinus issues. Round after round of various kinds of modern medicine didn’t even touch it. Then I figured – what have I got to lose, let’s see what else these oils can do. Let’s put them to the test. And what do you know?!
In 2019 I left a 25+ year career in the investment industry to run my small business full-time. Was I crazy? Yup… probably.
Together, our tribe has helped kids get through school days with less anxiety, parents teach their more focused kids, business professionals stay healthy and on the job, frontline workers stay on top of their A-game, given family members rest when caring for an aging relative, offered tools to provide emotional support through some hard times of life… and so on.
Our tribe spreads from Hawaii to Germany… and throughout the UK, and soon Montenegro! We are global, baby!
If you are reading this and have questions – come find me. I’m here for you! You are not alone.

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in square holes…
… the ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Rob Siltanen
A shout out to the wave makers, the change chasers, the truth seekers, the chain breakers, the hope dealers, and the kindness spillers. Keep doing you!
Keep walking away from things that weren’t meant for you… and walking towards what you were created for. The final destination may not look like what you first thought… but it will be perfect for you!
It’s not ideal… but it doesn’t suck.
It’s not what you imagined… but you’re still making moves!
It’s a bit uncomfortable… but you’re still chasing your goals.
It’s at a different pace than you expected… but you’re still going!
Keep it up! You were created to be His hands & feet.
You were created to do great things!
You’re inspiring others to do the same. And that’s doing it like a BOSS!
I still see this… almost daily.
“I’m looking for an amazing liquid foundation that will last all day – but please no MLMs”
Or “I am looking to make extra income – but no MLMs”
I think to myself…
But why wouldn’t you want to model for your kids – hard work + integrity and build wealth for them at the same time? Maybe also model for them what it’s like to be a business owner and how to do all the things?
Or why wouldn’t you want to support a friend’s business? Maybe a mom raising kids and working from home? Or a college student trying to rock school and make money between all the work. Or a person trying to not live paycheck to paycheck anymore.
I guess when I really think about it, I get it. It’s not for everyone. But ANYONE can do it with a dedication to hard work and some self-discipline.
When it boils down to it – success in a corporate job also relies on relationships, personal development, believing in a product, and sharing about it.
When was the last time you told a friend about a movie to watch, a restaurant to try, a pair of stretchy pants that changed your life, your massage therapist, a vacation spot that was like heaven on earth…
Why not share products you love, an opportunity you love, with friends you love, and make money doing it?
Yes, this is my full time. And I’m doing work I thoroughly enjoy! And I know it’s changing lives. I’m hearing the stories daily. I’m proud of this good work!
I thought it was a hoax when I got the email invite. And so I checked w/ an insider… and he confirmed it! I had been picked to be 1 of a handful of representatives from my company to speak with members of #USCongress tomorrow…. for #directsellingday, about why I do what I do, about the impact of our business on families I get to work with, and why I have chosen this as my career. What an honor… it’s humbling and exciting!
Usually this invite includes a flight to Washington DC for a few days of in-person meetings – but 2020 had other plans. So we’re taking it virtual. The same important issues will be on the table. But there will be less hand-shaking, pats on the back, and photo opps. Instead we will focus on our WHY. And I could talk about my WHY all day long. BRING IT!
When you filter out the rest of the social media and the stuff that comes along with that… what is it I do? I educate others by sharing my stories. And I love telling a good story.
Look, direct selling may not be for everyone… but ANYONE can run with it, especially if they’re willing to put in some hard work, do the HEART work, and do the good work of HELPING people. When your passion, your values, and your goals align with a good company – why WOULDN’T you want to partner with them?
And to know that your efforts are impacting economies, locally … nationally… and even GLOBALLY? I’ve seen this impact for 6 1/2 years now and the opportunities just keep coming! I get to share this excitement, this drive, this passion with our elected officials tomorrow. It is important to me to request their attention to consumer protection legislation. It is important to me, as an American, to boldly take a stand for the entrepreneur, for the professionals running their business in a way that supports their family and their goals.
