HEATHER PILLOW: Pure Romance Moms Who Do It All!
Heather Pillow (Warrenton, VA) – I can remember the first time I met Miss Heather Pillow – it was during the acquisition of Slumber Parties when she received a shocking call informing her that the company she had been working for at the time had been sold. Filled with panic and worry for the business she worked so hard to build, and the team she promised a brighter future to, she went into Mama Bear mode and jumped on the first plane to New Orleans to meet with Chris and me. She showed up in her “mom clothes” because she was just at an extra curricular activity for one of her children when she received the news; she apologized for it immediately! However, I could tell in that moment that not only was she an involved and busy mother, she was a true leader and take charge businesswoman. I had a flashback to 15 years ago and saw so much of myself in Heather at that moment. Not only is she overly involved with her children who participate in soccer, gymnastics, swim team, basketball, Spanish classes, piano lessons, pageants, and even roller derby, she continues to excel in her Pure Romance Business. Heather is a rock star in personal sales and an exceptional leader to her team, “Pillow’s Pearls,” who are on track to rake in over $1.6 million this year! As if she didn’t already have too much on her plate, she took on a position as a Corporate Trainer to pass on her wisdom to Pure Romance Consultants all over the world. She is the true image of ambition, organization and drive. I’m sure so many of you will agree once you read her tips on how to work smarter in your business and stay sane at home so you are a good Mom to the ones who matter the most.
Tips to keep a balanced life:
1. Do a nightly “brain dump.” Before bed, write down everything that is weighing on you, things you would like to accomplish the next day and what you are proud to have achieved today. Getting it all out on paper releases your brain to be able to rest and you have your To-Do list all prepared for the following morning.
