because not every mom gets to make muffins with her daughter at 9am on a Monday, but I do.
because not every mom gets to be there for every moment (good, bad, and ugly), but I do.
because not every mom gets to follow her dreams, but I do.
because not every mom gets to do what she’s passionate about every day of her life, but I do.
I owe it to you to share these things because if someone hadn’t shared with me 3 years ago, I wouldn’t be here. I would be working a job I hated, away from my daughter every day, with no time to pursue my own dreams or passions.
You can live the life you want. You just have to take the first step.

Formerly, I was a partner (fiancé) who gave up a teaching career to show up for her family as a stay-at-home mom. What I did not see coming was a break up after 7 years.
5 months ago I became a single mom with primary custody of my daughter (plus our two dogs). A daughter who I wanted to continue to support and show up for as I always had. What immediately ran through my head was:
1. WHERE are we going to live?
2. HOW am I going to support all of us, feed us, clothe us, without her dad’s income?
3. WILL I be able to do this on my own?
Well, it’s all because of my toxin free business that I’ve been able to get us into our own home (that even has a small yard for the dogs), work around the needs of my daughter, and SHOW up for her as I always have!
It nearly brings me to tears each time I take a moment to truly reflect and be grateful for where I am and what I’ve accomplished. I am forever grateful to the direct selling industry as it has changed my life not once. It’s because of companies like this one that women have the opportunity to make part time income working less than part time hours or make career income and accumulate wealth working full time hours. Did you know that 80% of women who make six figures do so through direct sales?!
Now, I ask you… what could you do with an extra 400-600 a month, or even an extra couple thousand+ a month, or heck six figures a year?
I’ve shared my back story and why I started this blog, but I haven’t shared that much about me personally. So, it’s sharing time!
💚 I have a 14 month old daughter who is literally my heart and soul. 💚 I am a certified secondary English teacher who has been blessed with the opportunity to stay home with my baby for a few years thanks to my business. 💚 I love planning and am addicted to planner supplies (give me ALL the stickers!!) 💚 My favorite food group is candy. 💚 I am a fiancé to a man I love with all my heart. 💚 I have two fur babies whom I adore. 💚 I absolutely love to do yoga and Zumba. 💚 I am passionate about the ingredients I put on my skin, on my child, and use in my home.
Sometimes people think I’m this all knowing, health crazed, makeup genius, rockstar sales person. I am a normal girl, learning how to be a mom for the first time, trying to be more conscious about the products my family uses, while sharing the green beauty movement with other women and helping them to reduce their toxic body burden! I love what I do and more than that I love that what I do allows me to be home with my little girl.
If any of this sounds intriguing to you, I’d love to just chat more. NO pressure, you don’t have to sell me your soul (even though I am a ginger..), I’d just love to share with you what it’s really like to do my job.
