Starting a new venture can be a leap of faith. In my case, it was a BIG leap. With one Google search I'm bombarded by images of sunbeams and flowers exclaiming to me in bold and calligraphy fonts that I just had to do it!

"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing." Muhammed Ali
Well that's encouraging, right? I guess the other side of the coin is that I would have nothing. Nothing but a vision of something amazing to share with others that, like a dream, disappeared all too quickly. Probably leaving a weird taste in my mouth and a little heaviness in my heart.

So today I am taking that leap, across a chasm that may be too large, but I'm just praying that I'll get to the other side with something amazing in hand (or on my wrist). Doing something new is pretty frightening for me. I like being in control and understanding all the neuances before getting started. That's probably why it's taken two years to get this idea up and running.
There were a lot of reasons why I shouldn't start a business. There were even more excuses I was setting in front of myself as roadblocks to slow me down. And there are a lot of sacrifices I'm still going to have to make. But, in the end, the reward is so huge. I get to help people like you! I want you to have an awesome experience with your essential oils, because they are truly one of the most amazing things I have ever come across. If I can do that through a daily reminder in a bracelet, a sticker or a quote the wall, then I have achieved what I set out to do.
I am so thrilled to share my products with you and can't wait to see where this journey takes all of us.
