It has been a while since my last post, but if you can't tell - You Tube is my latest obsession. It isn't like I don't over-share about my life as it is - but here are a few more facts that you may not know about me!
I am tagging all of you! What are 20 facts we may not know about you? XO, M
Today, for St. Patrick's Day, the DC area was gifted with one last (I hope!) snowfall. But it still technically a lucky holiday - So in honor of the spirit of all things good and green, it only seemed right to share some amazing results that come from using a product that comes in a little black and green box!
It Works! body wraps work in 45 minutes to help to tone, tighten, and firm target areas on your body. You can use them ANYWHERE from the neck down, and the results last. (Click Here for more information.)
I personally love the wraps and love my results since using them regularly. It you are looking to get lucky this Monday, you might have just stumbled across your put of gold! XO, M
An important part of constructing this new chapter in my life is actually enjoying it! And I have to say that I am! (#Happy2014)
I obviously love It Works! The body wraps have helped me lose weight (as a happy side-effect to detoxing), and gain more energy. Plus, I am surrounded by motivated go-getters who push me to be my best self, and Spring is starting to feel like a real possibility here.
The longest winter ever seems to be giving us her last college try before she has to retire for a couple of seasons. So at this moment, life is good.
In order to kick off the changing of seasons on the right foot, I am teaming up with Karen Curtis with Stella & Dot to host a wrap party and accessories sample sale! It is like all of my favorite things colliding in one Saturday morning.
I would love to have you join us! Just rsvp to me or comment below! I will be doing give-a-ways and other fun things over the next 15 days as we countdown to the event! And fellas - I haven't forgotten about you! More details to come. Have a great weekend! XO, M
When I first moved to DC, I was focused on one thing. I knew that I wanted to be a political fundraiser.
After working on my first campaign in North Carolina, I noticed that the fundraisers got to attend glamorous events, and they seemed to dress nicer than the rest of us who were working to coordinate volunteers and the press. In fundraising I saw the possibility of combining my love for campaigns and service, with a realistic means of supporting myself financially. So I focused like a laser beam, and went to work finding a fundraising job.
After three months of sleeping on a couch, and wearing holes in my shoes walking the Capitol networking, meeting people, and trying to make connections, I landed an incredible job where I was able to work with Senators, former and future Presidents, and other dignitaries and celebrities.
My sheer focus, determination, and unwillingness to settle for any other work is what propelled a 10 year career in political fundraising. And here I am again, focused, determined, and unwilling to settle. This time in a business that fits my adult goals.
As I have been sharing my enthusiasm about It Works with friends and family over the past 60 days (I joined the company exactly 2 months ago!), one question that seems to come up pretty frequently, is what is the tipping point? How does this opportunity go from being something where you make a little money on the side, to a major game changer financially?
And after being a student of the successful entrepreneurs in our business, I think I have an initial response to that question - which is what I address in my video diary today. Tipping points come from within. You have to have the desire to be the change. And that is when your business will start to explode (and life) in a good way. XO, M
The past couple of weeks have flown by. I guess that should not be surprising to me at this point. 2014 is on a mission to move quickly!
This past weekend we were fortunate to have one of our sweet cousins in town visiting, and we had a chance to visit the Capitol and some other DC sites. It was perfect weather, a lovely weekend, and a reminder as to how pretty this city really is.
