Starting Something Inspiring

I am new to business and new to entrepreneurship.   I am new to the idea of “be your own boss”.  I am new to the idea of “hustling”.  Ten months ago, I met my best friend and boyfriend and while getting to know each other and helping each other grow, I have learned so much!  The traditional idea of get a job so you can go to school, so you can get a job working for somebody else for the rest of your life, then retiring long after is not so traditional to me anymore.  Obviously having a job right now is important, I do work for someone else at the moment, and I am going to school to get my degree.  However, what I’m learning is that you can literally do whatever you want to do!  If you need some money, go out and make some money!  If you want to start a business, then start one!  I had a lot of dreams growing up.  Even back when I was in my elementary years I was organizing clubs and groups, and begging my dad to help me start my own business.  I would have been happy with anything!  I mapped it out, planned it out, but didn’t seek it out.  I didn’t have the necessary resources.  I wasn’t raised that way.  I was a little too “creative” to some.  Now, that wasn’t anyone’s fault, that was just the mindset of the community I was raised by.  “Stop dreaming, just finish school and get a good job,” I was told.  “Your ideas are not realistic.”  Let me tell you right now, never stop dreaming!  Last year, we had a dream.  Our dream is coming to life.  We are starting our own business.  People will always shake their heads.  They will always tell you, be realistic and be responsible.    I say follow your dreams AND be realistic and responsible.  I’m still working and I’m still going to school, yet we are starting our own business on the side.  Let me tell you, it’s an amazing feeling.  It’s a very long and not really easy process, but we are patient.  We have never rushed anything.  Success comes with time, patience, and dedication.  That’s exactly what we’ve been doing.  We have so many dreams and ideas I could never possibly put it on paper, but let me tell you that if you have a dream, an idea, or a slightest thought.. RUN WITH IT!  “Shoot for the moon, and if you don’t make it you will land in the stars,” we always tell each other.  

Feel free to check out out blog for one branch of our new business.  We just put it together today and we are very excited!  Expect to see great things from us.  I know we are going to be very successful.  The sky is not the limit.  WE HAVE NO LIMIT.

Mary Kay!!!

Two words ladies…..

MARY KAY!!!

My new Mary Kay Bag!

I recently have started my new MARY KAY business and I could not be more excited!!  There is more to it than I expected, but then again it is starting your own business and being your own boss so you have to take care of everything yourself so that makes sense.  However, you still have a base to go off of, you are not starting from scratch and they give you an amazing support system!  There are DVDs, books, a hotline, and my director is there for me anytime I need her!

My start up kit was just $100 (a $425 value!)  I was so excited to take it home from the Mary Kay party!  I had gone into that party already interested in starting up my own biz, and I wanted to see if I loved this product.  I wanted to sell, I just didn’t know what yet.  We got there, and our Consultant greeted us and was so excited to see us!  She made us feel very welcome.  She started off by treating us to the Peach Satin Hands treatment, which broke the ice and left our hands feeling amazingly soft.  She went into her introduction and then went on to give us full facials and make overs, matching us to our perfect shade of foundation, blush, and lipgloss!  We felt so pretty and we were all complimenting each other on how great we looked!

I really fell in love with the product, the skin care made my skin feel so amazing and the make up looked great!  I knew this was something I had to be a part of.  So I made the decision to start my own MK biz and I’m glad I did.  I have so many girls interested  in having parties with me and I’m so excited to see where this journey takes me!

Style Updates

STYLE UPDATES

As many of you know, Instagram is pretty big now especially since Facebook just bought it out.  I love fashion and style and photography so from now on I will be sharing my instagram photos with you guys and I have a few photos on here with some great style that I would love to share!!

 
This first photo is my boyfriend and I.  A lot of people tell me this looks like a magazine photo and it looks professional which is very flattering!  We were just hanging out and decided to shoot this picture on his iphone and I edited it on Iphoto.  It turned out very well.  I have on a simple black dress, a couple rings, bracelet, necklace, and pink shoes to add little splashes of color and fun to the look.  Desean’s outfit consists of a dark wash pair of jeans, belt, brown button up, bow tie (which I tied and I’m pretty proud of that!) all from Elsworth Men’s Clothing, and a knock out jacket from Macy’s.  He also added to the outfit a pocket square for character.  Now, your pocket square doesn’t have to match your outfit, just compliment it.

Here, we were at Elsworth Menswear in downtown Minneapolis.   Desean was having an outfit put together for that night.  I really like this picture and I actually took it because of the jeans.  They just look amazing on him.  The fit, wash, and style just looks great.  He also mentioned how comfortable they are.  

This is a shirt from my store Maurice’s, one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES!  The bottom is fitted to your body and as you go up the ruffles are so adorable and feminine and it comes up and wraps around the neck for a classic look.  All the jewlery you would need with it is a bracelet or ring or both.  In this photo I paired it with a jean skirt.  

This last shirt is a fun summer shirt I picked up from Maurice’s as well.  I absolutely love this one as well.  It’s so fun and it fits very well to your body.  I love how one strap is very thin and the other side is thicker.  The neckline is very flattering.  

HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY STYLE UPDATE!

HAPPY STYLING!!!
