It’s been a while since I last posted. Took a little hiatus from blogging. There have been some big changes in our lives and things are coming up.
First off, we got a kitten. His name is Loki and we absolutely adore him. He’s so cute, isn’t he?
He was really little when we first got him. He’s grown tons.
We will also be moving into another town home soon! We are really excited about that.
Last week, we also FINALLY got Johan’s green card!!! It’s been about 2 years in the making. So happy we have that finally!!!
A picture from the Minnesota State Capitol! We were there for their Grand Opening Celebration! We got to see some amazing paintings and historical items! History really speaks to me! There are so many stories to write down. We were down in the cities for Johan’s green card interview. Last Monday, we got his Green Card!!! 💳 YaY!
But other than that, we’ve been busy with work. Besides my day job, I’ve been getting tons of writing done. And I also started my own business with Mary Kay. (I know some of you might be rolling your eyes or thinking, “Really?”) I would have too at one time. But I really love it.
I hadn’t ever planned on selling Mary Kay, but when I heard their mission statement of: God First, Family Second, and Career Third, I just had to hear more. Because it seems many other companies out there are always: Career First, Family Second, and God lastly. It’s nice when God comes first and your family.
I also love that they ARE NOT a multi-level or a pyramid scheme company. So happy about that!
In my first month, I was able to do 30 facials for 30 women, which is totally exciting. Here’s a picture from my Business Debut Party.
Last night was my Business Debut Party! 🎉 We had a lovely turn out! I absolutely love the fellowship that Mary Kay creates. My director, Deb, awarded me with my Perfect Start Charm (for giving 15 facials to 15 women), my Power Start Charm (for giving facials to 30 women in 30 days), and my Pearls of Sharing Pearl earrings for sharing the opportunity with 3 lovely women. What other business rewards you like this for a job well done? Now I’m working toward my pearl bracelet and necklace! I want to give a warm thank you to all the ladies who were able to show up to help me celebrate. Also want to thank my mom for all the help setting up with delicious desserts and punch! ❤️ you @aberglundart! And also, thank you @intentional14 for the charms and earrings! I absolutely love them!!
I want to share my heart with you…
When it comes to Mary Kay, I never thought I’d sell it. But when I tried their products and saw how well they worked and how good it felt on my skin, I thought, “Maybe, I could do this. Maybe I could make this a full-time job eventually.”
Ive really been amazed by my new business. The ladies I’ve met are outstanding with unique stories. I really wish the best for them in every aspect of their lives. Something changes in a person when you set a mirror in front of them and make them see the beauty inside of them radiate on the outside. I really love what I do! ❤️
I absolutely love meeting up with other women and making them feel important and loved. That is my goal. Whether someone buys something or not. I don’t want to be a pushy saleswoman at all.
Goals For The Rest Of The Month
- Get my first team member in Mary Kay. It’s always more fun with other people.
- Get 10k steps a day.
- Do exercises at least every other day.
- Finish changing the POV from third to first person in my current book.
Be on the watch for more blog posts.
