Welcome everyone and thank you for visiting my blog. Here is a little about myself that I would love to share with you as it is important to always introduce one self to others seeking the same business mind set. I am a mother of two beautiful children, a boy and a girl. My daughter is my eldest and my son is the little rascal that loves to make her life very troublesome, but boys will be boys. She loves him though. I’m also a student at the Academy of Art university online that is located in San Francisco, CA. I hope to one day visit California to take on campus courses, but for the time being I am sticking with the online classes as my life at the moment is very busy with work and handling the jewelry business together at the same time while studying as well as caring for my children…phew! that is a lot of work.
I came about Our Hearts Desire when I was selling gift baskets (still do!) from La Bella Baskets, and felt that I really wanted to try something new other than gift baskets. So, I saw a post on Facebook of April’s ad in recruiting new jewelry consultants and seeking those in the NYC area as there never were available. I thought this would be a good opportunity for me. Me being the first in NYC to become a jewelry consultant for OHD? Yep, I’m doing that!
And that is exactly what I did. Not long did I make myself into a jewelry consultant, within a week I was able to make my first sale. That was ten times better than what I did with my gift basket business, and I have been making sales ever since. I found it to be very easy and most of all very, very affordable. I do have my low times, but that is why I am working from home with SYKES as an AARP rep. I get paid by the hour and I can use my gift basket, and jewelry business as an extra income. From my life of being in a rut, feeling depressed, and unaccomplished, I found myself listening to Les Browns speech when he said that the worse enemy that brings us down, is our own self, and he was right. I realized that the reason why I didn’t push myself forward was because I would sabotage my own dreams and desires.
I kept telling myself I can do this, but then a few seconds late I would think about all the negative things that can come from thinking positive. He made me realize that I CAN make a difference in my life, that I CAN succeed, and that I should never doubt myself, because doubt always leads to failure. There is no such thing as practice makes perfect because nothing is perfect, Practice only makes Improvements and THAT is what I have been doing. Improving, and I plan to help other moms, dads, retirees, and students like myself that are at least 18 years and older become as successful as me.
