Because it’s hard to believe that in less than 3 weeks I’ll be celebrating 5 years with Beautycounter.
Seriously, somebody pinch me!
Because this is, hands down, the BEST job in the world and it has taught me so much. Here are 8 things I’ve learned since joining Beautycounter.
Lipstick can be revolutionary. Because I am doing so much more than just selling makeup. We are literally countering the beauty industry. We are demanding better. And we are effecting change in the world we live in.
I am capable of anything. Like anything, y’all. Things I never even thought possible. But when you are passionate and when what you’re doing is so important you’ll find a way to make it happen. In spite of it all.
You really can have it all. The career. The family. The romance. Time is the one resource we can actually use up. And I was tired of having to choose between myself, my family, and my career. So I stopped. And now I have it all. Time with my family. Time to myself. And a thriving career that allows me the flexibility to have the rest.
Not all sales people are icky. This industry doesn’t have the best reputation, but when you find yourself focusing on educating consumers on how to make safer, healthier choices for themselves and those they love, suddenly it’s not about the sale anymore. It’s about helping others do better.
Everything is not what it seems. Because I remember standing in the aisles of the store doing my best to make better choices for my family. And I actually thought ‘this is America, it has to be safe…’ but then I realized that’s not actually the case at all. With the lack of regulations, nothing is what it seems. Grateful to know that at Beautycounter you actually get what you think you’re getting. No secrets.
When you know better, you do better. Because it isn’t just about makeup or shampoo, but when you start to take time to make decisions and when you focus on your health you start to make better choices all around. From eating better to drinking more water.
The best product we have to offer is our opportunity. Hands down. This opportunity has changed my life forever. I am the girl who never thought she’d be doing this. No experience. No nothing. And yet, this has been one of the best choices of my life.
Residual income is the best thing ever. Have you ever made money while sleeping? Or what about sitting in car line? Or what about when you’re scrubbing the toilet? Yeah, see? I have. And it’s amazing. And if you aren’t making money while doing those things then I’m convinced you’re just not living your best life.
