Why Every Woman Should Start Her Own Business NOW!

Why Every Woman Should Start Her Own Business NOW!

Yes, I said it. You need to start your own business. Now.

Not someday. Not later this year. Not next month, next week or tomorrow.


Why now? Because when you put things off, you will procrastinate and find an excuse not to do it.

I cannot remember where I read this (because I'm reading leadership and self-help books all the time!), but I think it was from John C. Maxwell who said, "Do it now!" Whenever a thought pops into your head like, "I should work out." Don't put it off, just do it. Do it now.

I may have blogged about this before, however, I think this is so important for so many women. Maybe you're a stay-at-home mom and everything is going great. Your husband has a great job and makes plenty of money to support your family. I think that's wonderful!

But what happens if he comes home tonight and says his company is downsizing and he's been let go? Could you maintain your lifestyle, your mortgage, your groceries, your kids' activities, school, etc.? For how long?

What if your husband came home tonight and said he'd met someone else and wants a divorce? Don't think it could happen to you? More than 50% of all marriages end in divorce. It CAN happen to you. It's probably happened to one or more of your friends.

As we are still in the throes of COVID-19 and the effects it's having on the economy, I am even more passionate about this subject.

This message isn't just for the stay-at-home moms out there. If you're a two income family, odds are it's because you need both incomes to maintain your lifestyle. What happens if one or both of you lost your job? It's happened to a friend of mine and trust me when I tell you, it's tragic.

You need to set up another source of income for yourself. You need to take care of yourself and your family. That starts at home with a business you can build part-time.

You can build a business part-time, but when I say that, I don't mean build your business part-of-the-time. I mean you should make a consistent effort, day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year growing yourself and your business to build a strong foundation for success.

I think there are a lot of great opportunities out there. Find one that excites you and makes you want to run out and tell everyone about it!

Do your research and get started on building your business today.

You can make it work for you. But it will take work, dedication and not quitting.

There are no overnight successes. No get rich quick schemes.

What business are you excited about building?

The Secret To Great Skin

The Secret To Great Skin

“You have great skin!”

Isn’t that something we all want to hear? I always thought I had okay skin, but not great skin. I had to wear foundation to cover up spots and blemishes to give the appearance of great skin.

But then I read a post on Facebook which said you could use virgin organic coconut oil to clean and moisturize your skin. I had it in my pantry, so I figured, “Why not?”

I started scooping about a tablespoon and rubbing it all over my fully-made-up face and neck. I then took a warm wet washcloth and wiped it off. And you know what? Every speck of make-up was gone. And my skin didn’t feel tight and dry like it did when I washed it with soap.

I then put about 1/2 teaspoon in my hands to moisturize my face and neck before I went to bed. I noticed a definite improvement in my skin when I did this, so I continued.

That said, it wasn’t until I started adding 3 drops of Frankincense essential oil in my coconut oil moisturizing routine that the compliments started. At first, it was the occasional stranger making the comment, “You have nice skin.” Then, one day as I was getting ready to go out and put on foundation, I realized I didn’t need foundation!

I stopped using the foundation and just applied some mineral powder, blush, lip gloss and eye makeup. After about a month of using the homemade Frankincense moisturizer, the compliments changed from “You have nice skin” to “You have really great skin, what do you use?” Honestly, a day does not go by that I don’t have someone say something about my skin and want to know what I do.

I'm in my late 50's and when people find this out, they are stunned. Most think I am at least 10 years younger, which is great! I’ve had no collagen, no Botox or fillers, no cosmetic procedures at all and absolutely no filters or retouching was done to my photo. I don’t think I look too bad for my age!  This is what a healthy lifestyle and natural products can do for you!

If you have been struggling with your skin and want a great complexion, I suggest you try this routine every day for the next 30 days and see if you will get the same results.

Remember, not any Frankincense will do. All essential oils are not the same and you should do your research.
