I Just Finished The Self Made Women 10 Day Challenge

I just finished the Self Made Women 10 Day Challenge.

What an incredible ten days.

Self Made Women was started by it’s founder Cynthia Delaney. She has a passion and a heart full of love to help others succeed in life.

I met both Cynthia and her husband Bill Delaney about three years ago while I was involved with a network marketing company. They were active and one of the top leaders in this company.

After talking with her she said something to me that made the ” lightbulb” flash inside my head. She said; “Alicia I’ve watched you struggle with network marketing, mlm and daily money issues for awhile now. Take the SMW 10 Day Challenge and ignite your destiny”!

At first I was apprehensive about it because my excuse to be honest had always been “my husband does not support me and holds me back”.

During this journey I have discovered it’s not him, it’s me. What have I been afraid of? I’ve been afraid of being uncomfortable, letting go of the life we know right now for a better one.

Well No More!

It stops today!

I have found a tribe of women that will encourage and help hold me accountable for making the necessary changes to gain the advantages and success I seek.

Yes I have written articles about mlm and gaining success, however if I am not practicing what I want to help others achieve then what good are my words?

To be an example, one must pay forward abundance, success and blessings to others.

The time is here and now!

I am a Self Made Women and I challenge you to ignite your destiny.

Remembering

Six years ago on July 20, 2012 an unthinkable and violent act by an animal of a puke human took the lives of twelve people and an unborn child.

The Aurora Theater Shooting was the worst shooting of it’s kind at the time. My daughter lost one of her best friends Micayla Medek.

Many others we injured that night .

Today is not about that night. Today is about honoring those lives taken too soon. The 7/20 Foundation now has the Memorial Garden in place across from the Aurora Munciple Center.

Yes tragedy struck all of us here in Aurora, Colorado that horrible night. Aurora came out stronger than ever.

We will never forget and we will be forever strong!

Happy Anniversary To My Blog

I can’t believe it’s been three years since I started getting more serious with my blog.

As I look back to some previous articles I think “What was I thinking”?

Example my third post titled, Why Do I Work From Home I wrote because I was hoping to start up in an MLM company and be able to stay working at home.

I loved the freedom to do what I wanted when I wanted. However a greater being had other plans for me.

I believe now that not everyone is meant to be in a network marketing company and be a top performer. Okay I hear the doubters and the I told you so’s screaming and laughing at me.

It takes alot to get people involved in your home business. To buy the product your selling and trying to recruit others below you to actually make decent money.

Yes I still believe in network marketing. However it just hasn’t been working out for me. Oh I can hear it all now.. Did you do this and that? Yes and yes!!!

Three year doesn’t seem like that long ago. I thought I just started yesterday ha ha ha.

Happy reading!

I Must Apologize

I feel that I owe my blog readers an apology.

I’ve been so busy with helping my husband through the death of his brother and redoing the house so we could move in, that I just haven’t been able to write anything.

The worst thing through this whole nightmare has been the packing of both houses and now unpacking 1 into 2. Going through another person’s belongings isn’t any fun.

For sure it feels like an invasion of his privacy. Death never leaves anything private!

Unpacking God I hate it. Figuring out where to put things, all while working and trying to maintain life in general.

I promise to do better.

Please accept my sincere apology.

Awkward Is Okay

Awkward is defined as not

graceful; ungainly

, not

dexterous; clumsy.

Being a preteen or a teenager is awkward for most young people.

Getting braces on their teeth. Girls and boys are starting changes with their bodies. Kids in school start making fun of others because they are different from them.

As a person grows into adulthood, they may be biologically an adult, and have adult behaviors but still be treated as a children because of their maturity level.

Workplace Awkwardness

Starting a new career can make anyone feel weird. The clumsiness comes out due to being nervous. How can one overcome this feeling of being awkward?

Shauna Lebowitz shares 7 Easy ways to stop being socially awkward in her article for Business Insider.com.

I love how she starts out her article.

Everyone’s had a socially awkward experience or two.

You go to hug someone, but they’re trying to shake your hand, so you end up backslapping them from a foot away.

We all have experiences good or bad! Leering how to overcome the bad ones takes time and practice.

What’s your best weird moment?

The one date I had with my husband I was wearing high heels and a sexy little dress. I got out of the car and was walking into the gas station I tripped over the hose and fell flat on my face. Awkward and embarrassing to say the least.

Since that day we laugh at almost anything.

Well time to wrap this up. Share your thoughts below.

Epiphany

Recently I had an ephiphany while shopping at our local grocery store. It occurred to me that we as a society start teaching our children at a very young age how to become “sales people”.

Standing outside the front door was a group of young girls. Dressed in we clothes with a uniform underneath. On there sign it said, “Girl Scout Cookies For Sale”.

It was at that point I realized how young our children are when they begin to develop selling skills.

The Girl Scouts of Colorado start recruiting girls as young as four or five. These little girls were so cute standing there and asking if we wanted to buy some cookies.

It was at that moment I realized these little, innocent girls were being coached to push their products. Okay maybe “push” isn’t the right word.

Selling

It doesn’t matter what the product is, it’s the fact that at a young age our children are vulnerable to the art of selling.

Hindsight

My belief is that as long as adults are teaching their children to be honest and forthcoming in their business practice, children grow up to be great sales people and leaders.
