Hey guys sorry for being gone so long but I had to take some steps back and re-evaluate life, my business and what we wanted as a family for our future.
So we have done the ground work and I am back and focused on bringing you content to add value to your life and those around you(so if you like what you read please share it).
Where have I been and what have we been up too. Well lets start with
April – school was winding down, soccer season was in full swing and I went to my Network Marketing company annual event in Frisco, Tx. Came back from there and was fired up has amazing ideas (still do) and then the FT job came into play. We were going through a merger and it was in full swing. Everyday was a meeting or 3-4 on top of my normal daily duties. Thanks to my amazing team I was able to focus on our future as a team and they handled the day to day.
May – School ended, soccer ended and I was about to breath when someone called and asked me to be their +1 to Cancun. YES PLEASE! I was very grateful for the opportunity to be in Cancun with so many amazing, top earners in the industry and learning and absorbing from them all. It also allowed me some alone time to reflect on where I want to me in my career, my NW business and as a wife/mom. I am grateful for the person that asked me to come along and it was just what I needed. Came back it was Memorial Weekend and BAM, 4 days later off to Vegas!!!!
June – Annual trip with my hubby for my birthday and no daughter. It is our mid year recharge and we had a great trip this year. Once i returned however the migration at work was in full effect and the stress levels were at an all time high. Not to mention that many long time employees/friends were departing the company at an uncomfortable rate of speed, some on their own others not so much. But I had to keep focused for my team and myself.
July -We took an impromptu trip to Virginia to visit my husbands side of the family and Morgan had her first plane ride. That was a nice relaxing trip as they live at the beach so morning and night salt air is to be soaked in and the sounds are soothing. The return from mini vacation was met with all hands on deck as migration was happening in 2 weeks ready or not. I can tell you we had done this same exercise internally in March 2015 and it took 18 months to get it ready. This time around it was more like 18 weeks….all kidding aside it might have been 22 weeks but you get the picture. Oh and not to mention that go Live day is also THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. Lucky for us I bought supplies July 4th weekend and family took her back to school shopping while on vacation so we were ready!
August – We went live on the new system and it has been a challenging month for my team but most importantly my customers. But we are remaining positive and keep a smile on our face and do our best to find the right answers or someone to assist them. School started August 1st as well and its going well. Soccer started a week later and she is showing some improvement so the camps this summer must have helped. Lots of struggles with my lower back (that will be another blog) but after a month of no exercise and feeling fluffy I woke up today to take my “after pics” for a contest and I saw some changes and was 5lbs down for the month.
So here is sit on Labor Day and I am reflecting on the last few months with you and I realize its not been horrible but it was real life and we made it through. Now time to get the ball rolling for many of our goals and see where we land in 3, 6 or 9 months from now. Stay tuned its going to be a great ride and I want you on board with me.
