I want to share a few words of encouragement tonight. ? If there is something in your life that you aren’t satisfied with, you can change it. You can take control of your health, your finances, your time, and your future. Change isn’t always easy, but surviving or just scraping by is even harder.
✨2016 was a big year for us and it’s not over yet. We are not perfect but I want to share a few changes/risks we took/are taking to hopefully inspire you to take a risk and follow your own dream! It’s easy to get in a rut and continue to do what’s comfortable. We are not satisfied with living like the majority because most people are unhappy, unhealthy, and just above broke. We believe that God has a beautiful plan for us and that he wants us to live life to the fullest. He wants that for all of us. He wants us to be blessed so we can bless others and that’s what we plan to do.
?I went 100% paleo in January and stayed consistent for the last 11 months. Scott and I also trained for and ran our first half-marathon. These steps weren’t easy but so worth it in the end. We only have one body and it’s up to us to keep it in the best shape we can. We also added essential oils into our health regimens and I had no idea how they would completely change our health and life (physical, mentally, and emotionally). I believe I’m meant to share my story with others!! It’s amazing how many woman have found me so I can help them.
?Two months ago, I did the scariest thing in my life and I followed my love for oils and started a brand new, fresh business from the ground up. I took a huge risk and leap of faith! I needed to do what was in my heart and the hard work is paying off!! We’ve already helped way over 100 families and we are just getting started. I hear stories daily from friends and customers who are feeling amazing, are pain-free, have more energy, are helping with depression and anxiety, and are loving life because of our oils. We hit silver in our first month and are on track to hit diamond ? by the end of this January.
? Scott and I are also starting another business. We talked about for a while but we needed all our ducks in a row before we could take action. After 2 offers that fell through, we finally have an offer on a house to buy and rent out! Scott and I love creating passive income and wanted another stream of it, on top of my business, so we are starting a real estate business. We downsized here so we can afford to buy investment homes. We sold a lot of furniture and our brand new, 4,700 sq ft home and bought this older 1,900 sq ft house. We also made sure all vehicles, school loans, and credit cards bills were paid off. Our immediate goal is to buy 2-3 house this year and have 10 homes being rented out in a couple of years.
❤️There are still other areas in our lives that we want to improve. We will constantly be working towards time freedom and finding more ways to bless others.
?I’ve learned that change is not easy and not always accepted by others! I’ve also learned to follow your gut and work hard towards your dreams because that’s what they are – you’re dreams! Nobody needs to understand them but you. Pray always and work harder on yourself than anything else. In order for things to change, you need to change! You can do this! You can design your life. It takes courage, discipline, hard work, and a lot of faith!! ?
