Our Growing Sisterhood

For those of you who haven’t heard, our Pure Romance family has recently expanded into Canada after thousands of former Passion Parties Consultants have decided to join our company! I wanted to take this opportunity to extend a warm, heartfelt welcome to all of these amazing women who will be working with us to carry on our mission. I went through a similar transition when I was a Consultant years ago for Fun Parties. It was an exciting new chapter starting my own company, and I know that many of these women will feel the same way starting their new journey with Pure Romance.

No matter where we travel in this world, women still have similar questions, needs, wants and desires when it comes to their sexual health and intimacy; on the flip side, many also strive for more quality time with family, extra income and to be their own bosses. This is something that Pure Romance is proud to offer our Consultants and those who come to our parties.

IMG_2446We are all truly coming together for a common cause: to give women permission, and to empower other women to also own and operate their own businesses. I wish all of our new “sisters” much success as we join forces to work toward the greater good for all women throughout the world.

February: Our Busiest Time of the Year

If you own and operate a Pure Romance business, you know that February can be as overwhelming as holiday shopping season or Black Friday for the rest of the world. Valentine’s Day makes this month “love month” and everyone is thinking about unique gifts for the one they love.StarterKitsNew

Most people are concerned with making dinner reservations far enough in advance that they aren’t stuck with the 4 p.m. or 10 p.m. time slot. Meanwhile, our Consultants are so busy they don’t even know what day it is! It’s easy for our Consultants to feel guilty about how many hours they are working – they are booking limitless parties, helping last minute shoppers, keeping crazy customer service hours – all in the name of love (not just for lovers, but their love of their businesses).

If you’re a Consultant reading this, below are some things to think about during this busy time that will help you feel good about your success and keep you on track.

  • Communicate with your family and friends. I can’t stress this enough. – communication is the glue that keeps relationships together. When you are working your business, keep your family and friends in the loop on what your schedule is like. Make sure they are on board with your goals and support you. Knowing this will ensure that you know they have your back when you are hitting your busier seasons. Everything falls into place with consistent communication.
  • Encourage your inner circle to be your cheerleaders. Let your family and friends know how much it means to you to have them cheer you and the success of your business on and keep them involved in the process – after all, they share in your success.
  • Make an effort to find balance that makes sense for you and your unique circumstances. When I was working as a Consultant, it didn’t matter if it was a pizza party on a weeknight or a lunch squeezed in between three parties, I made sure that I found the time to show my family and friends I cared. I always believed, and still do believe, that I’d rather fall into bed at night from exhaustion from doing what I loved rather than worry about where I’d get my next paycheck.
  • Reward yourself. As a successful Pure Romance Consultant, your schedule will be busy all year-round, not just in February. You should never feel guilty about this! This is what you’ve been trained to do – working smarter, not harder. And don’t forget to give back to you! When you do have some downtime, use some of that time to get a massage or manicure, or whatever it is that makes you feel pampered. You are your own boss, so you’re in charge of giving yourself that “bonus” you deserve!

Embracing Transitions

Transitions Blog“What do you want to be when you grow up?” That is a question nearly all of us have experienced at some point in our lives, but what is “grown up?” I believe we should always strive to reinvent ourselves and move through transitions our entire lives. Someone in their fifties or even seventies has just the same right as a teenager or college student to change gears in their career, or chase a long-held dream. Inspiration is all around us, and sometimes you just have to look for it – I assure you, it’s there. Every morning, I seek lessons to learn, as well as the grace to recognize them when they are placed in front of me.

Letting Go

“Everybody’s got a past. The past does not equal the future unless you live there.” – Tony Robbins

What are you holding on to this very minute? Every year we accumulate more “junk” and hang on to it (almost for dear life).  It’s like the brand new dress with the tags still on it from three seasons ago that you keep cluttered in your closet because you swear one day you will wear it (but NEVER do). The common behavior of hoarding doesn’t just apply to material things, but also relates to experiences associated with pain, anger, resentment – even just those little things that make us feel comfortable, but we know deep down are not good for us.

“Dear Santa…”

imagination3Christmas may be behind us, but there is something I want to reflect on that may make you think. Some of you may have heard the story about how my granddaughter thought I was one of Santa’s Elves for many of her younger years. Her mother had told her the story because she, like me, enjoyed the magic of Christmas when she was a little girl and wanted to carry on the tradition.
