Just got off the phone with one of our customers in the Bahamas. Called to let me know that Avon is pulling out of the Bahamas too. #avon #bigbusiness

"When those did-not-work results rise to the surface of my skin, it's those days that the fetal position consoles me from within." How do you raise a woman entrepreneur? One sister at a time. #entrepreneur   #entrepreneurship   #tenacity

Ditto 'This is a lifestyle…it’s who we are and everyone isn’t cut out for it. There is nothing wrong with sticking to a traditional 9-5, if that’s what floats your boat.' #entrepreneur
 
It's the #entrepreneurs who are always complaining, and who find negativity in every situation they have to deal with who need to recognize this...

As a two-legged mammal, I use to think what nerve the male lion had, to get first dibs on a prey hunted by the female lion. Until one day, while my daughter was working on one of her veterinary studies, I learned this: After the hunt the female lion is exhausted, and because of the fresh prey other predators want in. The male lion allows her to rest, breaks open the prey for his family, and fights off the predators. Next, it's her turn to feast, while he sits and guards her from the predators. Finally, the cubs eat, while both parents (now having their strength from the meal) guard them from the other predators. There's an order and purpose to everything. The two-legged mammal has the tendencies to disturb and disobey that order. #lion #family #law

Introduction

 

     In 1998, my husband turned to me and said, "We should start a business online, selling fragrance oils and incense." Okay!

 

     Oftentimes interviewers ask if I always wanted to be a businesswoman. When I was a pre-teen I knew that I wanted to be married and have children by a certain age, and everything else would fall into place. In other words, I made a decision. At the age of seventeen it came to me that when I did get married and have children, I would educate my children at home. There again, I made a decision. I knew that I was skilled in many areas, and that I never had a challenge rising to any occasion.  So when my husband came to me with that brilliant idea…you guessed it; I made a decision. 

 

     I decided to only provide good smelling products that would bring a smiles to people’s faces. I wanted to have fun and yet bring peace and joy to those who used what I created. I do that to this day, and as business progressed and time went on, I made another decision; to evolve into a better woman. Once I was liberated in that way, my purpose became more deliberate and I consciously stirred, mixed, blended, poured, dipped, labeled and packaged that feeling into each and every product, no matter the size.  My whole self is given with each and every creation, and my heart calls for those devoted wives, loving mothers, and conscious women committed to the practice of actually living their wholeness as well.  

 

     My tagline, live good.feel good.smell good.™, came to me one day while processing orders. It's a simple statement, but for me it speaks volumes about what I want to infuse into other people's lives. The tagline was always in my actions and words, but it came together in that simple sentence when my personal evolution through self-healing became front and center in my life. The message behind that tagline is meant to express the simplicity in having self-respect, and the positive results from having self-respect pours out onto your family, humankind and all living things. It's a conscious thought of peace and I invite you now to indulge in that experience with every single sniff.

 

     I am here to serve, create, and give. On purpose.

 

 

  

Women, be whole.  

 

Aromatically,
