You know what successful people do? Surround themselves with more successful people! I love the connection and community aspect of my work with Beautycounter; empowering the team is my favorite part of my job. This past weekend we met in Austin, Texas for our first LEAD trip in over 3 years and it was absolutely incredible! So, in case you missed on the ‘gram, here’s everything that happened…
Rocky Start to a Phenomenal Trip
This trip was full of highs and lows. It was absolutely amazing to reconnect at the first live even in 3 years. Traveling is always hit-or-miss, but as soon as I left the hotel, my bra broke. I got a call from Kiddo and wished I could be home to support them, I could not stop sweating, I couldn’t zip my dress for dinner alone, I spilled perfume all over my backup outfit, and I literally 7 planets were in retrograde.
I just wanted to give up and call it a night. After a pep talk from Matt, I took some deep breaths, centered, and regrouped. And as bad as some parts were, it was also that good.
I got to listen to some amazing panels with incredible folks who I admire deeply. AND I was honored as the Top Achiever in the highest leader category in all 3 categories! Thanks to YOU and YOUR support. I still don’t fully understand it, but I am so grateful, everyday!
Aligning Your Goals
My old career meets my new one! I saw a phenomenal panel from Beautycounter’s investors, seeing four women on stage representing who is behind us to take us to getting safer products into the hands of everyone. Seriously, it gave me goosebumps.
My goal for 2023 is seeing more team member names of those recognition walls! I am so excited for the future.
With all the work I’ve been doing emotional for well-being and personal development, I really believe in the idea of bringing your own joy. Not ignoring the negative, but rather accepting the obstacles for what they are, and making space for what you want.
It’s inspired me to really revisit my goals and align them with intention and planning. I love the idea of thinking of ourselves as evolving in life and being open to change as a good thing.
Making a Statement with Fashion
If you’ve existed in a straight-sized body your whole life, it might be hard to understand how VERY hard it is to see your true self reflected in your clothes.
For years, I was afraid of fashion. What to wear or finding what I wanted in my sizes was almost impossible. So I wore plain pieces and let my personality reflect in accessories- one-size scarves, jewelry, shoes, etc., But it never spoke to who I was. It never made a statement.
This weekend, I finally used my voice with fashion. I planned ahead with pieces I could customize. My clothes were loud and proud, just like me. I think it was the first time I ever understood “making a fashion statement” really meant.
