Choosing a direction and going for it.

My last 10 days have been pretty exciting in my head. I've been planning, re-planning, acting on the plans, revamping plans, and listening to inspirational audios to keep me centered. 

1. I have started (re-started?) meditating again. Every solo chance I get, I listen to a guided meditation on a topic that I am wanting to embrace at that time. Sometimes it's gratitude, sometimes it's morning mindfulness, and other times it might be abundance or body scan, just to remind my body that it's ok to relax. I notice that my days are different when I can start with that, and that weekends tend to throw me off balance. My schedule changes, I am no longer alone in the mornings, and I tend to spend more time online and in stores, and I find that the influence of media and other people changes my mindset. When I can center my thoughts and choose a mantra for the day, I tend to go back to it for at least half the day. When I start the day and allow media and other things to creep in, I notice my self-talk and balance within the universe waivers. I found that very interesting, as I become more self-aware this time around. Do you notice a difference in yourself? Maybe that's partly why Mondays are so difficult. 

2. I used to have my own DS businesses with three or four different companies, and focused on one in particular. Within a 9 month period, I aimed for the top tier, and was awarded into that tier. I received top discounts, and could have continued competing for free trips, cars, etc., but by the time I got there, I was no longer motivated. I had made it to where I wanted to be, I had shown I could recruit more than anyone on my team, I could out-sell, out-advertise, etc., and in less than a year while working my full-time job. I had customers across 4 cities, and it was fun... until it wasn't. 

I realized that the fun was the challenge, but deep down, I wanted to mentor. I knew I could reach this stage, but I wanted someone(s), a team to work with me, to challenge each other, etc. I could not find that person who wanted to grow their business, and do it independently like I did. I didn't want to have to provide all of their supplies, because they didn't want to. I didn't want to have to show up because something else more interesting came their way. I had more passion, more dedication, and I had no way of sharing it. 

Until now. 

I am in the process of creating a 90 Day/90 Way planner to increase business, and make more money. So I have decided to offer daily tips for free in the meantime, and gauge the success of people, answer questions, etc., before I launch my new planner. So, introducing the link above for Grow your Business (name subject to change), where you can join on fb, and get daily tips and tricks. 

I have had a lot of success in these direct sales businesses, and received recognition regionally, and nationally. What would you do to have the same? Is this a goal of yours? 

3. Goals! 
This is exciting for me as well. I have decided that I am going to start focusing on what my 2018 goals will look like, and make a plan. What do you want 2018 to look like? It's only a couple of months away, and I do not want to be planning it on New Years' Eve - I plan to have a PLAN, a GOAL, and best of all, SUCCESS. 

Who's with me?

Vacation Tales #2: More Nostril Flaring Fun!

Part Two of Vacation Tales:
Oh yes, my darling senior dog had indeed marked my bag. He did the same thing one year ago, just prior to our departure, and managed to sneak it by me until I was at the airport and noticed something funky-smelling… anyways, I digress. We caught it early enough that it was cleanable, and off we go.
It’s a short drive to the airport; about an hour or so. We left the house at 2:30 am, and arrived at the location where we park our car for the week. We had a lovely surprise that our coupon from booking with Sunwing afforded us a low rate of parking for the week (only $60, win!) and they shuttled us to the airport in a prompt manner.
We checked in, and all was well. In due course, we were on the plane, and headed to paradise.
So we thought.
Let’s take a quick tally of the flight: *Plane running a few minutes behind? Check. *Full flight? Check. *Baby on board who cries for take off? Check. *Belligerent man sitting behind us who was louder than a demanding child? C…

Vacation Tales 1: Nostril-flaring fun

I am back! We arrived back in Canada last night, and what an interesting time we had. In many ways, it was wonderful. In others, your head will shake, your nostrils will flare, and you will be happy that you are reading about my adventure, and not yours! My last post was written at a coffee shop, and that evening, I returned home to find issues with my internet service. It continued on and off until the weekend of the 11th and 12th. For those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you may have seen my post about exchanging equipment at the local internet provider’s storefront. To my surprise, I received an actual response from the company via Twitter where they actually made an online attempt to “assist me”. TLDR: nothing was accomplished by switching out the modem, and services were down until the technician arrived on Wednesday.
Thursday morning at 6:15 am we were scheduled Let’s try that again.
After much planning and saving, we were able to book a week away. We chose a 4* t…
