My New Adventure

What a crazy month it was! November 2014 wasn't filled with a lot of soccer but it was nonstop from the 1st to the 30th. On the 8th of November I took a risk and signed on as a independent consultant with a direct sales company called Jamberry Nails. They are new but growing rapidly! After a month I can say, so far, it has been one of the best business decisions I have made!

I really struggle being home with Lily some days because I feel like I am not contributing financially or doing my part besides being the best mom ever :) I love little girl with all my heart (so don't think otherwise!) but for someone who is Type A I really miss the interaction and relationships of being in an office too. 
Who couldn't love this little princess?

Jamberry has given me so many friends in less than 4 weeks and I love the community that comes with the Jamily I am now a part of. 

Mike likes to remind me of how much I hate sales and yet look what I ended up signing on to do. I like to remind him that I don't sell! I share my love of the product and it sells itself. I am an avid nail biter so I always have something on my nails. Now instead of repainting them every 5 or so days I keep Jams on for 2 weeks! I don't have the time or patience to let polish dry anyways...and neither does Lily :)

Day 1                                        Day 7
 I seriously hate confrontation and being pushy so I really dreaded my first vendor event last weekend at my sister-in-law's parent's church. The first couple of hours I just stood there smiling and saying '"hi" which I am really good at! Then I started giving free nail art samples at my booth and that is all it took for the sales to come rolling in. 

Now I am not going to make a full income off of this... at least not for a long while... but Christmas won't be so hard on our budget this year and we are planning to use this to help get rid of our debt (Yay Dave Ramsey!). I even decided (was forced by my husband) to book a bridal event for the first weekend of January. Man am I super nervous about that! Over 1200 brides PLUS whoever they bring along...the fiance, mom, bridal party. 

I was skeptical to sign up because it was quite the investment for the booth but Mike and his Dad assure me that it will pay off. I am a little bit of a perfectionist and I hate to fail so I am praying this either works out phenomenally or fails miserably so I know if it is something I can really succeed at.

If you are interested in checking Jamberry out either contact me for a free sample or just follow this link.
