My Why

About Me

Who am I?

Mom, wife, daughter, sister, ATM for a teenager, taxi driver, cook, laundress, maid, dog owner, child of the 80s & chief bottle washer.  Yes - in that order.

 

Ohh...you meant professionally!  Sorry.

Jack of all trades, master of only a few (and still working on those).

 

Is this your 'real job'?

It is now!!  When I started in 2013, it was just to help out my sister and a few directors.  Now, it is a full-time job! I was working two jobs and barely making ends meet.  We were really struggling.  I returned a phone call to one of my first customers during my lunch break from my car to answer some questions she had and she asked me why I was still working another job.  I told her I couldn't afford to quit.  She said of course you can. Do what you love and the money will come. I thought about it a lot over the next month and prayed about it even more. She called me again a month later and asked me one question - "did you quit your job yet?"  I laughed and said no - her response was, what are you waiting for? So, I quit.  It was the best decision I ever made in my life!  Thanks, Angie!

 

Am I a sales consultant?

Nope, but my sister is and she keeps me kitted out right in all the latest and greatest!

 

How did I come by the opportunity of designing newsletters and such for Direct Sales Directors?

Again, my sister. I knew when she came along it would lead to something.

She needed help with her newsletter, just like you, and I offered to do one for her.

She shared it with a Director's group on Facebook. Then, well - things snowballed. Thanks for the blessings, Vickie!  Love ya!

 

What program do you use to design?

Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop.

 

Where'd you learn to do this?

I worked as a typesetter at a newspaper and printing company while in college - who would have ever thunk it!  The rest is self-taught.

 

Do you only do graphic design for direct sales directors?

Absolutely not! Any business or company that has a project - from business cards, stationery and logos to catalogs, print ads and basic websites - let us know!

We would love to help with your project!

 

Do you only do graphic design for direct sales directors?

We work with everyone! We have worked with customers who sell Thirty-One Gifts, LuLaRoe, Scentsy, Origami Owl, Perfectly Posh, Mary Kay, Pink Zebra, and more.

 

When did I realize that I had a "why" too?

July 2014 in Columbus, Ohio standing beside my sister in a sea of pink shirts on the upper deck of the arena at the Thirty-One National Conference watching a video of a bag in a box making its rounds on that conveyor belt through the distribution center, on its own little journey to someones door.  The line "it's so much more than a cute little bag" got me.  It really hit home.  I actually started to cry. I looked around at all of these women, so excited and so blessed. I realized that by supporting them in their roles in achieving their why, I could achieve mine.

 

That was a life changing moment for me!!

 

I knew then this was what I was supposed to do with my time, my energy, and my life. The blessings that have followed have been immeasurable. To finally be financially stable, appreciated for what I do, and love what I am doing - it is a blessing each and every day. I am so thankful to be on this wonderful journey with all of you.

 

From the bottom of my heart - Thank you!
