Welcome to my page!
Several years ago I began to take a huge interest in my own personal health. Today, many of us are becoming more aware of the detrimental effect that toxins have on our health. Toxins can be found in the majority of consumable products that are purchased on a daily basis. Not only are toxins found in the shampoo, hand wash, , deodorant and toothpaste that we use, they are also found in many of our foods!
Over the past few years, my partner and I have learnt to grow some of our own foods. I don’t believe in dieting – but I do believe in eating a rich, balanced and healthy diet. There is a lot of contradicting information in regards to what to eat and what not to eat…
If you’ve not done so already, I recommend that you find out about ‘Paleo’
Eating the ‘Paleo’ way means that you avoid toxic foods (e.g. grains and dairy) and eat nutrient rich foods that are high in vitamins and minerals. There are some fantastic cookbooks around and they’re worth the investment!
I decided to make a blog to hopefully inspire you to become more aware of the foods you eat and the products you put on your skin. I am learning so much and hopefully some of what I share with you will be of interest. I no longer work full-time. I was a primary school teacher and taught key stage one. I absolutely loved teaching because it was very rewarding but it was also very demanding, especially on my time. I realised I wasn’t focussing and spending as much time with my own family and so my priorities needed to change. Now, I am lucky to have a flexible lifestyle. It’s a luxury!! I can spend time with my family and do what truly makes me happy… learning, living and helping others.
That’s where you come in! On my blog, I will share with you
- Recipes (as well as ideas for baby food, ways to save money and meals that can be made in under 20 minutes)
- Interesting articles (based on health topics…)
- Links to Amazon
- Regular updates
- Product info (including what ingredients to avoid)
- Exercise tips
I started my blog recently, so watch this space!
Being in the Network Marketing industry allows me to make my own choices and I can work around my family, rather than trying to fit my family around a job. I get to choose the people I work with, I can pick my own hours, I get to decide how much I do and how hard I work and when I achieve my goals I know that it’s my motivation and drive that has got me there. I share my successes with others and it is amazing to work with a team that motivates and inspires me.
What is Network Marketing?
Simply put, it is a system that sells products via independent consultants rather than using traditional advertising and retail methods. This means that businesses can save lots of money, which can then be put into further product development. It also means that the products I market will never been seen in stores or on the TV. The business works purely on word of mouth recommendations, and this is something that everybody does on a regular basis- but without getting paid!
As a consultant for Arbonne International and I promote products that are pure, safe and beneficial. I believe in the products and I believe in the company. Built on Swiss Heritage, whist adhering to strict European guidelines, Arbonne products are naturally derived using botanical ingredients. They do not contain animal products, parabens, gluten, synthetics, artificial colors and sweeteners, mineral oil or other harmful ingredients.
More importantly, the products are effective and the results have been clinically proven!!
Being a consultant can be challenging at times. On a daily basis I am working outside my comfort zone, but the great thing is, I am supported and encouraged by a team of motivated like-minded individuals. We are on a journey…. and what it has given me is confidence, ambition, focus and drive!
I never dreamed of setting up my own business. For years, I have contemplated change but was unsure about what I really wanted to do with my life. We are on this earth such a short space of time, and while I am here, I want to put my energy into something that I feel passionate about and something that makes me genuinely happy. Think about it… RIGHT NOW! Are you happy with your life? Are you passionate about what you do? I urge you to think about it, where do you imagine yourself in five years time? Will you be happy?
Setting up my own business has helped me to see my own potential, and to believe in myself. In the future, I won’t have to work to somebody else’s schedule and I will be financially free. I will be present in my family life and when we want that family holiday, we will take it! Now, I can choose my own hours, to work around my family rather than fitting my family around my work.
