Glitter, Sparkle, Shine & Uncork Change, I’ll elaborate. If you are friends with me on Facebook, you are probably wondering what the “big thing” was that I was vaguebooking about. A couple of you even joined my VIP group to see what it was! As of last week, I am very proud to announce I am officially a Cause Entrepreneur with ONEHOPE.
In short, viaONEHOPE is a merit-based marketing platform that allows passionate entrepreneurs to spread the ONEHOPE mission and make an income while making an impact. Every ONEHOPE product helps make our world a better place.
I have spent the better part of my direct sales years, almost 9 to be exact, searching for fundraising opportunities. Trying to find ways I could give back to people or organizations who needed it more than I did. Supporting causes that mean something to me, my family and my friends. Let me tell you, IT’S HARD WORK! It’s tough when you have only two choices, donate product or donate your commission and your company doesn’t donate anything extra. That’s what being an independent consultant is all about! Except when you need your commission to pay bills which is why you are in the business in the first place!
Trust me, not everyone is willing to donate money for homeless people to have soap, I tried that one! People are far less giving to anyone “less than” them also, as if everyone had a choice. I’ve adopted families at Christmas, I’ve put together pampering gift packs for all the mom’s who were in Ronald McDonald House on Mother’s Day. I collected donations to put a gift bag together for the children in the hospital over Christmas, I collected money to buy soap and basic toiletries for a homeless shelter. I could go on and on how one fundraiser after another bombed from lack of support. It’s hard on the heart!
This fell in my lap
I just went back to actual work, outside of my house, last fall. My Perfectly Posh business has slowed to taking care of my regular customers and that has kept me at a pace that I am 100% fine with. Adding something else to my plate was NOT something I was seeking out. Posh took a back seat to my real job, and working daily with special needs children again, I have been secretly seeking another way to make myself useful. The kids I work with daily are a reminder to me that there are not enough people who care in this world.
I was working an event recently at a local store where I sell my Posh inventory. One of the other shop owners there happened to be a ONEHOPE director. We started talking as I was sampling the wine. What I was hearing was practically making my heart sing, not kidding, it was a crazy feeling that is hard to describe. Little did she know, she was speaking my language! I took a catalog home and in the back of my mind I was saying, “I need to go home and talk to Al about this. This is so perfect for me.”
After explaining all the incredible details about this company and the impact they are making, I talked to him. I chatted with a couple of close business friends and all of them said it was exactly what I needed. It is a perfect fit for me. It is finally a sparkle that is making me shine. Do it, they said. So I did it. I did the thing! I joined and I’m so incredibly happy I did! The outpouring of love and support from my VIP community of insanely supportive women feels great. My husband, who is always on board for MOST of my crazy ideas, is ready for me to kick this thing into high gear. After all, we are both wine drinkers, that’s the BEST PART! HA!
